The Wikimedia movement is founded on a simple, but powerful principle: we can do more together than any of us can do alone. We cannot work collectively without gathering, sharing, and analyzing information about our users as we seek new ways to make infinite.education more usable, safer, and more beneficial.
We accept principles of Wikimedia movement and try to make infinite.education like Wikipedia Sites. We are not connected to Wikipedia Foundation except our principles
We believe that you shouldn't have to provide nonpublic personal information to participate in the free knowledge movement. You do not have to provide things like your real name, address, or date of birth to sign up for a standard account or contribute content to infinite.education
We do not sell or rent your Personal Information, nor do we give it to others to sell you anything. We use it to figure out how to make infinite.education more engaging and accessible, to see which ideas work, and to make learning and contributing more fun. Put simply: we use this information to make infinite.education better for you.
After all, it's people like you, the champions of free knowledge, who make it possible for infinite.education to not only exist, but also grow and thrive.
Collection & Use of Info
Your Public Contributions
When you make a contribution to infinite.education, including on user or discussion pages, you are creating a permanent, public record of every piece of content added, removed, or altered by you. The page history will show when your contribution or deletion was made, as well as your username (if you are signed in) or your IP address (if you are not signed in). We may use your public contributions, either aggregated with the public contributions of others or individually, to create new features or data-related products for you or to learn more about how the infinite.education is used.
Account Information & Registration
Want to create an account? Great! Don't want to create an account? No problem!
You are not required to create an account to read to a infinite.education, but you need to create an account to contribute
If you want to create an account, in most cases we require only a email and a password.
GPS & Other Location Technologies
We don't use any technology to determine you location, such at GPS or other location technologies
Sometimes, we automatically receive location data from your device. For example, if you want to upload a photo on the incinite.education, we may receive metadata, such as the place and time you took the photo, automatically from your device. Please be aware that, unlike location information collected using GPS signals described above, the default setting on your mobile device typically includes the metadata in your photo or video upload to the infinite.education. If you do not want metadata sent to us and made public at the time of your upload, please change your settings on your device.
Finally, when you visit infinite.education, we automatically receive the IP address of the device (or your proxy server) you are using to access the Internet, which could be used to infer your geographical location
Information Related to Your Use of infinite.education
We want to make infinite.education better for you by learning more about how you use them. Examples of this might include how often you visit infinite.education, what you like, what you find helpful, how you get to infinite.education, and whether you would use a helpful feature more if we explained it differently. We also want this Policy and our practices to reflect our community's values. For this reason, we keep information related to your use of infinite.education confidential, except as provided in this Policy.
Information We Receive Automatically
Because of how browsers work, we receive some information automatically when you visit infinite.education. This information includes the type of device you are using (possibly including unique device identification numbers, for some beta versions of our mobile applications), the type and version of your browser, your browser's language preference, the type and version of your device's operating system, in some cases the name of your internet service provider or mobile carrier, the website that referred you to infinite.education, which pages you request and visit, and the date and time of each request you make to infinite.education.
Put simply, we use this information to enhance your experience with infinite.education. For example, we use this information to administer the sites, provide greater security, and fight vandalism; optimize mobile applications, customize content and set language preferences, test features to see what works, and improve performance; understand how users interact with infinite.education, track and study use of various features, gain understanding about the demographics of the different infinite.education, and analyze trends.
Information We Collect
Depending on which technology we use, locally stored data can be anything from text, pictures, and whole articles (as we explain further below) to Personal Information (like your IP address) and information about your use of infinite.education (like your username or the time of your visit).
We use this information to make your experience with infinite.education safer and better, to gain a greater understanding of user preferences and their interaction with infinite.education, and to generally improve our services. We will never use third-party cookies, unless we get your permission to do so. If you ever come across a third-party data collection tool that has not been authorized by you (such as one that may have been mistakenly placed by another user or administrator), please report it to us at email@example.com We use google analytics technology for analyzing trends and user activity
With Your Permission
We share your information for a particular purpose, if you agree
For Legal Reasons
We will access, use, preserve, and/or disclose your Personal Information if we reasonably believe it necessary to satisfy a valid and legally enforceable warrant, subpoena, court order, law or regulation, or other judicial or administrative order. However, if we believe that a particular request for disclosure of a user's information is legally invalid or an abuse of the legal system and the affected user does not intend to oppose the disclosure themselves, we will try our best to fight it. However, we may only provide notice if we are not legally restrained from contacting you, there is no credible threat to life or limb that is created or increased by disclosing the request, and you have provided us with an email address.
If the Organization is Transferred (Really Unlikely!)
In the extremely unlikely event that ownership of all or substantially all of the Foundation changes, or we go through a reorganization (such as a merger, consolidation, or acquisition), we will continue to keep your Personal Information confidential, except as provided in this Policy, and provide notice to you via infinite.education
To Protect You, Ourselves & Others
Infinite Education are collaborative, with users writing most of the policies and selecting from amongst themselves people to hold certain administrative rights. These rights may include access to limited amounts of otherwise nonpublic information about recent contributions and activity by other users. They use this access to help protect against vandalism and abuse, fight harassment of other users, and generally try to minimize disruptive behavior on infinite.education. These various user-selected administrative groups have their own privacy and confidentiality guidelines, but all such groups are supposed to agree to follow our Access to Nonpublic Information Policy. These user-selected administrative groups are accountable to other users through checks and balances: users are selected through a community-driven process and overseen by their peers through a logged history of their actions. However, the legal names of these users are not known to the infinite.education.
We hope that this never comes up, but we may disclose your Personal Information if we believe that it's reasonably necessary to prevent imminent and serious bodily harm or death to a person, or to protect our organization, employees, contractors, users, or the public. We may also disclose your Personal Information if we reasonably believe it necessary to detect, prevent, or otherwise assess and address potential spam, malware, fraud, abuse, unlawful activity, and security or technical concerns. (Check out the list of examples in our FAQ for more information.)
To Our Service Providers
As hard as we may try, we can't do it all. So sometimes we use third-party service providers or contractors who help run or improve infinite.education for you and other users. We give access to your Personal Information to these providers or contractors as needed to perform their services for us or to use their tools and services. We put requirements, such as confidentiality agreements, in place to help ensure that these service providers treat your information consistently with, and no less protective of your privacy than, the principles of this Policy. (Check out the list of examples in our FAQ.)
If you are visiting infinite.education with your mobile device, we use your IP address to provide anonymized or aggregated information to service providers regarding the volume of usage in certain areas.
Because You Made It Public
Any information you post publicly on infinite.education is just that – public. For example, if you put your mailing address on your talk page, that is public, and not protected by this Policy. Please think carefully about your desired level of anonymity before you disclose Personal Information on your user page or elsewhere.
How Do We Protect Your Data?
We strive to protect your information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. We use a variety of physical and technical measures, policies, and procedures (such as access control procedures, network firewalls, and physical security) designed to protect our systems and your Personal Information. Unfortunately, there's no such thing as completely secure data transmission or storage, so we can't guarantee that our security will not be breached (by technical measures or through violation of our policies and procedures).
We will never ask for your password by email (but may send you a temporary password via email if you have requested a password reset). If you ever receive an email that requests your password, please let us know by sending it to firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can investigate the source of the email.
How Long Do We Keep Your Data?
Once we receive Personal Information from you, we keep it for the shortest possible time that is consistent with the maintenance, understanding, and improvement of infinite.education, and our obligations under applicable U.S. law. Non-personal information may be retained indefinitely. (Check out the list of examples in our FAQ.)
Please remember that certain information, such as your IP address (if you edit while not logged in) and any public contributions to infinite.education, is archived and displayed indefinitely by design; the transparency of the projects’ contribution and revision histories is critical to their efficacy and trustworthiness. To learn more about our data retention practices, see our data retention guidelines. For further information about how you may request access to or deletion of your Personal Information, or other rights you may have with respect to your Personal Information, see our FAQ.
