Privacy policy updated

We’ve just updated the Wiki Education Privacy Policy. Like the last version, this one is adapted from the freely-licensed policy of Automattic, the company that makes the open source blogging software WordPress. We’ve based it on Automattic’s policy because they have a well-earned reputation for protecting users’ rights, along with the resources to cover their legal bases.

The new policy starts from a recent edition of the Automattic policy that, unlike our previous policy from 2016, was written with the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in mind. You might also have noticed a consent banner on your first visit to the Wiki Education Dashboard within the last few weeks, highlighting how we handle private information. While we don’t store very much private information, we want to be as transparent as possible with what we do keep and why.

If you’re the type of person who finds privacy policies interesting, we’d love to get your feedback on it. Let us know what you like or don’t like about it; we’re open to making further updates in the future:
