What Data We Collect
Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience while using our wiki.
You can visit and read articles on DisabilityWiki without registering for an account. However, when you register to create an account, we ask for some personal information, such as a username and email address (optional). We strongly urge you to choose a generic non-identifiable nickname as your username, and we urge you never to share any personal or personally identifiable information.
Medical professionals or others who would like to be recognized for their contributions with their real names may voluntarily add them when signing up.
Any information you contribute to DisabilityWiki is public and can be seen and used by everyone. Your contributions are also archived and remain available in a public log.
Medical and Health Information
While DisabilityWiki contains information about disabilities and health-related topics, we do not collect any specific personal health or medical data from our users unless voluntarily provided by the user in the course of discussions or contributions.
Automatic Data Collection
We automatically collect some data about your visit, including your IP address, the pages you visit, and the time and duration of your visit.
Use of Your Data
We use your data to manage your account, communicate with you, optimize our site and services, and comply with legal obligations.
Your public contributions to DisabilityWiki are used to provide and improve the service, and these contributions may be available indefinitely.
Disclosure of Your Data
We do not share your personal information with third parties except in the situations outlined in this policy or when legally required.
We may share your personal data with our service providers who need access to such information to perform services on our behalf.
If DisabilityWiki is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of assets, we will give affected users who have registered emails notice.
We retain your personal data for as long as necessary to provide the services and fulfill the transactions you have requested, or for other essential purposes, including complying with our legal obligations.
Our service is not intended for children under 13 years of age, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information.
Changes to This Policy
We may update this policy from time to time. We encourage you to review it regularly.
