What personal data we collect and why we collect it:


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Who we share your data with:

We do not share your data with any other business, personal entity, or software program, including data mining and data brokerage agencies or advertising agancies, other than certain oAuth providers such as Google (Gmail) Sign in, or other social media sites we have integrated with for the purpose of allowing easy sign up and login; and in this case 1) we only exchange the data necessary to complete authentication, meaning the necessary exchange of the encrypted token necessary to complete the authentication; and 2) we refuse any provider’s offer to share your profile image or any other personal data. If you singed up with Wikacy through one of these federated providers, your username on this platform defaulted to a new unique id number, meaning we refused to retrieve your display name from such providers. Thus, on Wikacy, you have complete and 100% anonymity.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data

We use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption on this website, and we do not allow any of your personal identifiable information to be shared with any third party without your specific request and intent, such as to promote your products or services as a part of the services we provide.

Your contact information

If you submit your contact information on this website, we retain your contact information for the purposes of communicating with you only. We do not share your contact information with anybody, absent a court order or valid search warrant from a government entity with proper jurisdiction.
