Summary

If you only read the OpenUru.org websites, no more information is collected than is typically collected in server logs by web sites in general.

If you contribute to the OpenUru.org discussions, you are publishing every word you post publicly. Once posted, you should assume that it will be retained forever. This includes articles, user pages and talk pages.

Identification of an author

You will need to be logged in to publish or edit a page in the wiki.

When logged in, you will be identified by your user name. This may be your login user name or your real name depending on the options you selected when you created your account.

Remember to log out or disconnect yourself after each session on a shared computer, to avoid allowing others to use your identity.

Cookies

The wiki will set a temporary session cookie (PHPSESSID) whenever you visit the site. If you do not intend to ever log in, you may deny this cookie, but you cannot log in without it. It will be deleted when you close your browser session.

More cookies may be set when you log in, to avoid typing in your user name (or optionally password) on your next visit. These last up to 30 days. You may clear these cookies after use if you are using a public machine and don't wish to expose your username to future users of the machine. (If so, clear the browser cache as well.)

Passwords

Many aspects of OpenUru.org's operation depend on the reputation and respect that is built up through a history of valued contributions. User passwords are the only guarantee of the integrity of a user's edit history. All users are encouraged to select strong passwords and to never share them. No one shall knowingly expose the password of another user to public release either directly or indirectly.

Sharing information with third parties

Except where otherwise specified, all material added to the OpenUru.org website is assumed to be available for reuse by other users unless the contributor expressly indicates otherwise.

OpenUru.org will not sell or share private information, such as email addresses, with third parties, unless you agree to release this information, or it is required by law to release the information.

E-mail

You may provide your e-mail address in your Preferences and enable other logged-in users to send email to you through the wiki. Your address will not be revealed to them unless you respond, or possibly if the email bounces. The email address may be used by the OpenUru.org administrators to communicate with users on a wider scale.

If you do not provide an email address, you will not be able to reset your password if you forget it. However, you may contact one of the OpenUru.org administrators to enter a new mail address in your preferences.

You can remove your email address from your preferences at any time to prevent it being used.
