The privacy of our visitors is of extreme importance to us. This privacy policy outlines the types of personal information is received and collected by this site and how it is used.

Reading the Wiki

If you only read the wiki, no more information is collected than is typically collected in server logs by web sites in general.

Editing the Wiki

If you contribute to the wiki, you are publishing every word you post publicly, and you are identified as its author through your username.

Content

It is not intended that this wiki should hold any personal information that the person concerned would not be happy to be made public. If you have any concerns regarding personal information about yourself, you may either remove the offending text where you have editing rights, or ask an administrator to do so on your behalf. Administrators will also monitor changes made to the Wiki and roll back any changes which they deem to be offensive, derogatory or inflammatory.

Passwords

User passwords are the only guarantee of the integrity of a user's edit history. All users are encouraged to select strong passwords and to never share them.

E-mail address

You may provide your e-mail address in your Preferences and enable other logged-in users to send email to you through the wiki. Your address will not be revealed to them unless you respond, or possibly if the email bounces. If you do not provide an email address, you will not be able to reset your password if you forget it. However, you may contact an administrator to enter a new email address in your preferences. You can remove your email address from your preferences at any time to prevent it being used.

Log Files

The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information.
