Inkipedia talk:Privacy policy

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki

Is this a typo? I can't edit this page, but an admin can. (the typo is the bit in bold)

Access to and release of personally identifiable information

Policy on Access of Data

Pages are developed by volunteer contributors. Some dedicated users are chosen by the community to be given privileged access. For example, users who actively patrol edits and clean up vandalism may be promoted with Rollback privileges or Sys-op status. User group rights and group members are reachable in every page from the Special:ListGroupRights page.

Details of Data Retention (pronoun change request to "their")


The email address put into one's user preferences may be used by Inkipedia for communication. Users whose accounts do not have a valid email address will not be able to reset their password if it is lost. In such a situation, however, users may be able to contact one of the Inkipedia server administrators to enter a new e-mail address. A user can remove the account's email address from his preferences at any time to prevent it from being used. Private correspondence between users may be saved at those users' discretion and is not subject to Inkipedia policy. Exaskliri (talk) 12:29, 16 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]

There is also a gendered pronoun in the Policy on Release of Data. EminenceTalk 13:00, 16 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Goodness, you can tell that nobody looks at this page much! Don’t know how that slipped in! I’ve fixed it, thanks for bringing it up. GloverMist (talk) 22:04, 17 March 2021 (UTC)[reply]


There is a typo in the Editing pages section of the Privacy policy (typo is in bold):

Editing pages

Edits to page pages are identified with the username or network IP address of the editor, and editing history is aggregated by author in a contribution list. Such information will be available permanently on the pages.
Logged in registered users:
Logged in users do not expose their IP address to the public except in cases of abuse, including vandalism of a wiki page by the user or by another user with the same IP address. A user's IP address is stored on the wiki servers for a period of time, during which it can be seen by server administrators and by users who have been granted CheckUser access.
IP address information, and its connection to any usernames that share it, may be released under certain circumstances (see below).
Editors using a company mail server from home or telecommuting over a DSL or cable Internet connection, are likely to be easy to identify by their IP address; in which case it may be easy to cross-identify all contributions to various pages made by that IP. Using a username is a better way of preserving privacy in this situation.
Unlogged-in registered users and unregistered users:
Editors who have not logged in may be identified by network IP address. Depending on one's connection, this IP address may be traceable to a large Internet service provider or more specifically to a school, place of business or home. It may be possible to use this information in combination with other information, including editing style and preferences, to identify an author completely.

Here is another section with typos:


The sites set[s] a temporary session cookie on a visitor's computer whenever a page page is visited. Readers who do not intend to log in or edit may deny this cookie; it will be deleted at the end of the browser's session. More cookies may be set when one logs in to maintain logged-in status. If one saves a user name or password in one's browser, that information will be saved for up to 30 days, and this information will be re[-]sent to the server on every visit to the site. Contributors using a public machinedevice who do not wish to show their username to future users of the machinedevice should clear these cookies after use.
