RedWarn Privacy Policy

Please note this privacy policy only applies to off-Wiki communication with the RedWarn team and use of RedWarn tools. Since access to this information is fundamental to the operation of both RedWarn and Wikimedia Cloud Services, these terms regarding use of your data expressly override the Wikimedia Foundation's Privacy Policy as it relates to the use and access of your personal information.

RedWarn respects your privacy. We will never collect:

  • IP addresses
  • Login locations
  • Passwords
  • Real names, Email addresses, or any other personal information unless you choose to provide it, such as by using the SendEmail feature to User:RedWarn

If you opt-in to help with debugging, we may collect:

  • Your Wikimedia username
  • Information on what features you've used, where you've clicked within RedWarn's interface, etc.
  • Browser information

If you choose to provide personal information, such as your name or email address, this information will remain in our internal bug tracking systems indefinitely, but won't be available to anyone outside of the RedWarn team. This does not affect your rights to deletion,

RedWarn is based in the United Kingdom, and therefore is legally required to protect your data under the Data Protection Act 2018 (GDPR). This includes the right for your data to be retained in the United Kingdom only. However, unless you explicitly tell us in writing, your data will be available to other team members in the Philippines, the United States of America and Hong Kong (People's Republic of China).

We also use GitLab, which is hosted by Google Cloud Platform in multiple regions.

We are bound to use any data you submit to RedWarn tools, including RedWarn’s CDN, per the Wikimedia Cloud Services terms of use at: Wikitech:Cloud Services Terms of use

You can request an export, or deletion of all the personal information held about you by contacting the team.

If you are not comfortable with sharing your own email address when using the Send Email feature to report bugs and other issues, we highly recommend creating an email account just for Wikimedia related work.


Survey data will be anonymised before publication - however, please do not submit any personal information as we may delete your response.
