Privacy Policy

We take privacy very seriously, and we work hard to ensure that your information is only used and shared when you want to, how you want to.  By visiting the Wikiful website, you are accepting the practices outlined in this policy.  The column on the right provides a short explanation of the privacy policy, but it is not legally binding.

This Privacy Policy covers Wikiful's treatment of personal information that Wikiful gathers when you are on Wikiful's website and when you use Wikiful's services.  This policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that Wikiful does not own or control, or to individuals that Wikfiul does not employ or manage.

Date of Last Revision: December, 2016

Essentially:

By using Wikiful, you agree to all the terms below.  This privacy policy only applies to our site — if you follow a link to another site, Wikiful has no control over what information they may collect from you.

Essentially:

We collect information with the purpose of giving users a high-quality and personalized experience on our site.

We collect your registration and user profile data.  Our servers also collect information used to make the website run faster and better.

If your wiki is private, we will not access it without your consent.  If your wiki is public, it’s viewable by anyone who visits your wiki.  You can change your wiki’s privacy settings at any time.

We don’t sell user information, period.  We do collect some basic information via Google Analytics, AdSense, etc.  And we may highlight cool public wikis in our marketing materials.

Essentially:

Our site uses cookies to remember you and make sure your experience is as seamless as possible.  You can still use Wikiful if you disable cookies, but the site may not function as well.

Third-party services that help us place ads on our wikis and analyze how our site is used also use cookies to collect information about visitors to our site.

Essentially:

Third-party services that help us place ads on our wikis use cookies, so that you’ll see ads that are likely to match your interests.

Essentially:

We may share information with affiliates and vendors (who must also adhere to this Privacy Policy) in order to provide our service, and we may share information where required by law.  We may also share information with third-parties that help Wikiful provide services to you.  However, we don’t sell user information — period.

Essentially:

You can update your wiki content and privacy settings on the site at any time.

Essentially:

You can delete content from your wiki at any time.  You can also delete your entire wiki at any time.

Deleted wikis will be stored in an inactive state for a grace period, in case you choose to reactivate your account, and then will be permanently erased.

You can unsubscribe from marketing emails at any time.  However, you will still receive account-related communications, such as payment confirmations.

Essentially:

We transmit your encrypted payment information to our payment processor, Stripe.  We do not store your payment information.

Essentially:

Unfortunately nothing on the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  But we strive to get as close to 100% as possible by employing the most up-to-date tools and technologies available to keep your information safe.

Essentially:

We’ll never ask you for sensitive personal information by email.  If you get a message like that, don’t respond — it’s a scam.

Essentially:

This site may include links to other websites.  We are not responsible for those third-party sites.

Essentially:

We respect kids’ privacy and don’t permit any users under 13 years of age.

Essentially:

We will notify you of any significant changes to the policy.  You can reach out to us with questions at support@wikiful.com.
