This policy covers personally identifiable information collected or stored by the Korean Wiki Project on its servers in relation to the Projects and their communities. The Korean Wiki Project collects and retains the least amount of personally identifiable information needed to fulfill the projects' operational needs.
The public and collaborative nature of the project
The Korean Wiki Project is collaboratively developed by its users using the MediaWiki software. Anyone with Internet access (and not otherwise restricted from doing so) may edit the publicly editable pages of these sites by logging in as a registered user. By doing this, editors create a published document, and a public record of every word added, subtracted, or changed. This is a public act, and editors are identified publicly as the author of such changes.
In general, this policy only applies to private information stored or held by the Korean Wiki Project which is not publicly available.
Users may also interact with one another outside of the Korean Wiki Project, via email, IRC or other chat, or independent websites, and should assess the risks involved, and their personal need for privacy, before using these methods of communication.
Anyone can edit the Korean Wiki Project by logging in with a username. Users that register are identified by their chosen username. Users select a password, which is confidential and used to verify the integrity of their account. Except insofar as it may be required by law, no person should disclose, or knowingly expose, either user passwords and/or cookies generated to identify a user.
