[Wikimedia-l] Announcing an Update to WMF Donor Privacy Policy

Aeryn Palmer
Hello All,

I’m writing on behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation’s Legal department to
announce our updated Donor Privacy Policy
<https://foundation.wikimedia.org/wiki/Donor_privacy_policy/en>, which goes
into effect today, April 15, 2019.

The policy was last updated in February 2017. The recent updates provide
clarity about our existing practices, as well as more information about how
we handle the data we collect from donors when they make a donation or
otherwise interact with Wikimedia donation- or fundraising-related sites,
banners, and emails. These updates are part of our ongoing efforts to
provide clear information to our users and donors, and do not represent a
substantial change in our practices. For further information, we invite you
to read the policy
<https://foundation.wikimedia.org/wiki/Donor_privacy_policy/en>; you can
also review a comparison
between the previous version of the policy and the update.

If you have questions, you can contact us at [hidden email] for more
information. Questions about donating to the Foundation can be directed to
[hidden email]. Thank you.


Aeryn Palmer
