Privacy Policy

I just happened to spot a user accessing UESPWiki:Privacy Policy and, not having read it before, thought I'd better take a look. Well... see for yourself. This clearly needs fixing since it's one of the links at the bottom of the page. The talk page has a link to an old Booyah Boy sandbox here, which contains a proper policy that seems to have been on the verge of being accepted. I propose we basically put that live. Three little things need to be fixed:

  • Bread Crumb Trail,
  • List of users with CheckUser (since all admins have it now), and
  • The IRC section - I'd suggest keeping that to a minimum and linking to the IRC page.

If nobody has any objections, I'll go ahead and make the change. –RpehTCE 07:09, 17 January 2008 (EST)

I have no objections. --Mankar CamoranTCE 07:46, 17 January 2008 (EST)
Nor I. Full speed ahead? Muthsera 09:01, 17 January 2008 (EST)
Have fun rewriting rpeh. --Ratwar 09:15, 17 January 2008 (EST)

Okay, I tweaked it, Nephele tweaked it some more and I've just put it up at UESPWiki:Privacy Policy as a preliminary proposal. If nobody raises any concerns in a week, I'll take the "proposal" tag off. –RpehTCE 16:54, 17 January 2008 (EST)

Thanks, Rpeh, for noticing this and dealing with it :) Although I might have to go and check the locks on my bathroom doors now ;) --NepheleTalk 17:28, 17 January 2008 (EST)
I'll stay out of this one. But keep in mind that we have ads and the adservers place cookies. Cookies which most likely track users across multiple sites, etc. So our policy should probably not say that we're not doing that. :lol: --Wrye 18:08, 17 January 2008 (EST)
That's a very good point. It's too late at night for me to think properly about that but the policy needs to mention it. Again, I'd say a brief mention and a link to a page on Google. I'll do that tomorrow unless anybody wants to jump in first. Do you have any other concerns though Wrye? You seem a bit equivocal, and I'd definitely welcome your opinions. –RpehTCE 18:26, 17 January 2008 (EST)
At this time the ads don't appear to set any cookies, but being externally loaded data that might change as decided by Google. -- Daveh 19:47, 17 January 2008 (EST)
