Contributions

All contributions for users are publicly available. They can be found under the username. This information includes the name of the page's they've edited and the time the edits were made. The contributions of the entire wiki community can also be found on the recent changes page.

E-mail address

If you register an account with CryGaia Wiki, you have the option of including your e-mail address. This is not required in order to have an account, but is needed for password resets. We will never give your e-mail address out to anyone without your consent. E-mail can also be used to communicate with other users via the wiki. Again, your e-mail address will not be given out unless you make the choice to do so in your preferences.

Cookies

By visiting the wiki, a temporary session cookie is created on your computer for the duration of the visit. It can be disabled, but this will not allow you to login.

If you use a public machine and do not wish to show your username to others, it is advised to be certain you log out and clear the browser cookies.

Page history

All article pages, including user, help, and project pages, have their history of changes stored. Even if some contributions are removed from the page, they will remain in the history of that page and can be viewed there. Page history is usually permanent and will never be removed under most circumstances.

Self-identification

You are not expected to release any personal information, including, but not limited to, your real name, gender, location, country-specific identification code, or anything else besides your username of choice. You are not required to release such information to any user, including administrators. You can safely ignore such requests, and report it to an administrator if you are concerned.

If you choose to publish such information to the wiki, you acknowledge you do this voluntarily and realizing any potential consequences. CryGaia Wiki complains no responsibility for the accuracy of any personal information provided by users.

Personal information belonging to other people

Disclosing personal information of another person without their explicit and public consent (doxxing) is strictly forbidden.

How the information is used

  • To give credit to users who make helpful contributions and improve the status of the wiki.
  • For accountability of cases of vandalism or abuse, in order for action to be taken to prevent further problems.
  • In order to create statistics for data such as usage logs and articles in need of editing.
  • To help solve any technical problems that may arise in using the wiki.

Phishing

Under no circumstances should you reveal your password to anyone.

Release of information

User information will not be released to third parties unless the following:

  • With consent from the user in question

  • When required for preventing abuse or vandalism to the wiki
  • If the information is in the public domain
