FamiWiki:Privacy policy

From FamiWiki

Effective Date: March 23, 2023

FamiWiki's privacy policy details the nature of the data we collect from our users, and who may access this data. If you do not agree to the terms of this policy, you may not access FamiWiki.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding our collection and use of data or would like to request to have your personal data removed, please contact a bureaucrat on their talk page or on Discord.

Session data

All content on FamiWiki is open to the public for viewing and editing. Session data may be recorded by FamiWiki, such as IP address, browser, operating system, screen resolution, and location. We use this information to help improve the quality of our services, and will never distribute it to third parties without the approval of the relevant users.

Personal and account data

When you create an account on FamiWiki, we record data such as your username, email address, and any other details you choose to provide, in order for our systems to identify you. By registering an account on FamiWiki, you agree to allow us to record such data. You may access and edit your data by visiting Special:Preferences while logged in. This data will never be shared with any third parties, and we will endeavor to ensure that users' data is kept secure insofar as is reasonably possible. If you have used an email address to sign up, you may unset your e-mail address in your user preferences.

However, FamiWiki cannot be held responsible for any personal data posted publicly (age, name, address, etc.); e.g. on users' personal pages. We recommend that you do not share any more personal information than is absolutely necessary.

User accounts cannot be deleted. When you register an account on FamiWiki, you agree to allow us to retain all necessary data indefinitely.


When you post an edit to a page, the system will record your username, and all content you add, remove, or change. This data is publicly accessible for anyone to view or distribute, and once an edit is posted, this data is released irrevocably under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International. By posting an edit, you agree to this data being recorded and released. If you do not agree, please do not submit edits to the wiki.

Content submitted to the wiki is the work of our editors; as such, FamiWiki's owners and staff cannot be held responsible for content posted to articles that may be considered offensive or misleading, or which may expose private data. However, the staff will promise to attempt to monitor all incoming contributions, and to remove any such content as soon as is possible.

External links

FamiWiki is not responsible for the content or data collection policies of any sites you may visit via external links on the wiki. You follow external links at your own risk.


By visiting FamiWiki, you agree to allow us to place cookies on your system, in order to identify you and retain your session data. If you do not agree to our use of cookies, you may disable them in your browser's settings; however, note that you will be unable to log in or edit.

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy to this page. We will let you know when changes have been made to this Privacy Policy by updating the “Effective Date” at the top of this Privacy Policy.
