Your usage logs are not made available to other parties. Aggregated data from logs, such as general usage patterns, may be used by the MedaWiki software as well as by site administrators in decision making. For instance, MediaWiki keeps track of the number of times each page is viewed.

Privacy for editors

Editing on subject wikis is generally permitted only for registered users. Registered users must, at the time of registration, provide their real name, and enter basic information about their reason for interest. No private information such as date of birth, social security or taxation number, or home address is sought.

Regarding personal information:

  • The email IDs of registered users are visible to site administrators only. For information about site administrators, contact vipul.wikis@gmail.com or vipul@math.uchicago.edu with the particular subject wiki and the reason for request.
  • All editing activity by registered users is recorded on the site and is visible to all site users. However, this information is not indexed by search engines that follows robots.txt.
  • For edits made by registered users when logged in, the originating IP addresses for the edits can be accessed only by the site administrators.
  • Passwords chosen by registered users are not humanly accessible, even to site administrators.
