The short version: We value your privacy. We don't plan on selling any of your information.

The long version is adapted from Automattic's Privacy Policy, which is released under a Creative Commons license.


Website Visitors Wikiwrimo collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Wikiwrimo’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Wikiwrimo’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Wikiwrimo may release non-personally-identifying information in aggregate, such as in the occasional website report.

Wikiwrimo may also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Wikiwrimo does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information Certain visitors to Wikiwrimo’s websites choose to interact with Wikiwrimo in ways that require Wikiwrimo to gather personally-identifying information. We ask visitors who sign up for a user account at Wikiwrimo to provide a username, an email address, and their NaNoWriMo.org username. This information is to verify that the user is a NaNoWriMo participant and to verify the user's email address. Wikiwrimo collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Wikiwrimo. Wikiwrimo does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information Wikiwrimo discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its administrators and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Wikiwrimo’s behalf or to provide services available at Wikiwrimo, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those administrators and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Wikiwrimo, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Wikiwrimo will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its administrators and affiliated organizations, as described above, Wikiwrimo discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Wikiwrimo believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Wikiwrimo, third parties, or the public at large. Wikiwrimo takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Wikiwrimo uses cookies to help Wikiwrimo identify and track visitors, their usage of the Wikiwrimo website, and their website access preferences. Wikiwrimo visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Wikiwrimo’s website, with the drawback that certain features of Wikiwrimo's website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Privacy Policy Changes Wikiwrimo may change its Privacy Policy from time to time. Wikiwrimo encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
