Data sources used
Wikiscan does not directly collect information from users of the site, there is no registration.
The information published on the site comes from public data from analyzed wikis.
"Be aware: Any content you add or any change that you make to a Wikimedia Site will be publicly and permanently available."
"Publicly Visible Information: [...] you should assume that information that you actively contribute to the Wikimedia Sites, including Personal Information, is publicly visible and can be found by search engines. Like most things on the Internet, anything you share may be copied and redistributed throughout the Internet by other people. Please do not contribute any information that you are uncomfortable making permanently public, like revealing your real name or location in your contributions."
For any rectification or deletion concerning this data, you must contact the wiki concerned, Wikiscan will then be automatically updated with the new information during the next updates (for example a renamed user). Wikiscan cannot know whether or not you are the holder of this data. In case of problems, you can optionally send an email to wikiscan (at) wikiscan.org.
Cookie : Wikiscan does not currently use any cookies. Previously, audience measurement cookies (Google analytics) were used, these cookies are deleted if they are still present when you visit the site.
Audience measurement (analytics): Wikiscan use Google analytics but greatly limit the transmission of information:
- Use only from the server, so the visitor is never directly connected to the Google analytics servers that receive the data.
- The IP address sent contains only the first two bytes (for example 188.8.131.52 is replaced by 184.108.40.206).
Logging system: Web servers log accesses so that they can identify the source of incidents and protect the server in the event of abuse or attack. However, in order to limit as much as possible the data recorded in normal times, Wikiscan excludes the IP address of the visitor from the access log of the web server (access.log). Normal use of the site therefore does not result in the recording of the visitor's IP address. In the past, this access log recorded IP addresses by default. In order to limit abuse, the web server error log (error.log) continues to record IP addresses. The logging of IPs for normal access can possibly be reactivated temporarily in order to protect the site, in particular in the event of an attack.
