12 new individual engagement grants

The Foundation’s Individual Engagement Grants (IEG) support projects from individuals or small teams to organize, build, create, research or facilitate something that enhances the work of Wikimedia’s volunteers. The 12 winning grants from the first round of 2014 were announced on May 30.

Test of a message inviting anonymous editors to create an account, displayed after they have made an edit (presentation slide)

Inviting anonymous editors to join the Wikipedia community

On the English, German, French, and Italian Wikipedias, the Foundation’s Growth team conducted two experiments to test user interface changes for encouraging anonymous editors to create an account and join the community of registered users. In the first test, a recommendation to create an account was shown when the user clicks “edit”, and in the second test, the invitation was displayed after the user saved an edit. Preliminary data strongly suggested a positive effect on new registrations.

Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC) recommendations announced

In May, the nine-member Funds Dissemination Committee (FDC) met for its face-to-face deliberations and published its recommendations to the WMF Board of Trustees on proposals from four organizations (three chapters and the Foundation) on how to spend Wikimedia donation money. The Board will make its decision on these recommendations by 1 July. The Advisory Group to the FDC also met in Frankfurt for their final meeting, to provide the Executive Director of the WMF with a recommendation on whether or not the FDC process (begun in 2012) should continue, and if so, what modifications should be made. They unanimously agreed to recommend to continue the process.

Wikimedia Bangladesh completes its local registration after a five-year journey

Annual Wikigathering on 21st February in front of Ekushey Book Fair.

On 10th June 2014, Wikimedia Bangladesh finally completed the exhaustingly long bureaucratic process of local registration when treasurer Ali Haidar Khan collected the registration certificate from the Registrar of Joint Stock Companies & Firms office. This marked another big step towards the creation of a Wikimedia Chapter in Bangladesh. The formal public launching of the chapter is the last task, which we will be doing very shortly.

The idea of having a Bangladesh chapter began in 2009. Since then, Bangladeshi Wikimedians have been hosting regular offline activities for the purposes of realizing this goal. We formally submitted our bylaws to the Chapters Committee (now AffCom) in April 2011. Final approval from the Wikimedia Board of trustees came a few months later on October 3, 2011. We were the 39th chapter to be approved by the Wikimedia Foundation board. After getting the approval from the WMF, the biggest challenge for us was to find a lawyer who would complete the legal formalities of registration at a low cost. Most of the lawyers we approached turned down our proposal because, according to them, getting registration as a non-profit ‘society’ was very difficult since applicants require a security clearance from the National Security Intelligence (NSI) of Bangladesh. We finally found a lawyer who agreed to help us with the condition that we collect the security clearance from NSI on our own. After accepting the condition, we submitted our application for local registration with the Registrar of Joint Stock Companies & Firms on May of 2012. We knew that the registration might take some time but we never imagined it will be such a long process that would take so long. We had to wait more than two years before finally receiving the certificate of registration on June 10th, 2014.

Through Thick And Thin

This post is part of an ongoing series of monthly blog posts by members of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees that aims to shed light on the function, responsibilities and inner workings of the Board.

Portrait of Wikimedia Foundation Board member Bishakha Datta

I’ve often thought you need the thin skin of an amphibian and the thick hide of a rhinoceros to be a trustee of the Wikimedia Foundation. Your skin must be thin enough to allow different ideas, voices, thoughts and perspectives to permeate, including those most distant or different from your own – openness is an inherent aspect of leadership. At the same time, it must be thick enough to weed out distractions and inessentials. And of course, your mind must be capable of knowing the difference.

What makes leadership complex in Wikimedia is its vast, diverse and decentralized nature. Like the movement itself, the 10 of us on the Wikimedia Foundation board come from different cultures, continents, backgrounds and experiences – all of which shape how we understand power and leadership. And all of which determine, to some extent, the kinds of leaders we aspire to be or will become.

Let’s dive a bit deeper into this. In companies or corporations where the notion of hierarchy is accepted, power can flow directly up or down in a straight line. In academics, the teacher-learner dynamic provides cues for the exercise of power and leadership. In the women’s rights movement, which is part of my background, power is a dirty word and erasing power inequalities between genders is an explicit goal. Thus leadership here cannot be overt or heavy-handed; it has to be subtle and implicit, more circular and collective, sometimes even veiled. In the sex workers’ rights movement, of which I am a long-time ally, we turn power on its head and equip unlettered sex workers or the ‘powerless’ to become leaders. This requires supportive ‘outsiders’ to consciously step back and transfer some of their own skills and power to ‘insiders’.

Israel’s Ministry of Education & Wikimedia Israel Agree On New, Unique Initiative

Rabbi Shai Piron, Israel’s Education Minister, Jan-Bart de Vreede, Chair of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees, Itzik Edri, Chair of the Wikimedia Israel Board and Michal Lester, Executive Director of Wikimedia Israel

An agreement was met in a meeting between Rabbi Shai Piron, Israel’s Education Minister, Jan-Bart de Vreede, Chair of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees, Itzik Edri, Chair of the Wikimedia Israel Board and Michal Lester, Executive Director of Wikimedia Israel, regarding a shared cooperation with Wikimedia Israel in the framework of the ministry’s school curricula in the coming years. Through the planned cooperation, history, geography and science teachers will receive special professional training to instruct students on how to contribute to new or incomplete Wikipedia articles for which information is lacking or inadequate.

Rabbi Shai Piron, Israel’s Education Minister, Jan-Bart de Vreede, Chair of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees

The Education Ministry will also examine the possibility of integrating Wikipedia writing assignments in the teaching of research and community involvement. They will also consider having students who speak additional languages (primarily English and Russian) write Wikipedia articles about Israel in those particular languages.

Education Minister Rabbi Shai Piron said, “It is important to us that the education system in Israel leads in innovation and cooperating with Wikipedia is a wonderful opportunity to think outside the box and enable students in Israel to do things that make a difference from which others can also benefit.”

Jan-Bart de Vreede, Chair of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees said, “Israel is today among the leading countries in the integration of Wikipedia in the education system and academia. I hope our joint work model will also serve as an example to other education systems around the world.”

In the framework of cooperation that is already in place between Wikimedia Israel and the Ministry of education, several pilot projects are being conducted. The projects involve teacher training in good Wikipedia usage, article composition, Wikipedia article writing by gifted high school students and the teaching of proper Wikipedia usage to elementary schoolchildren. It is worth mentioning that through cooperation with academics in a variety of universities and colleges throughout Israel, hundreds of articles are written each year by students in courses. Thus students write Wikipedia articles as part of their degrees, sometimes even in lieu of exams or final papers. The Faculty of Medicine at Tel Aviv University recently conducted a special 2-credit course on the subject of Wikipedia and medicine.

Survey results published last week as part of Wikipedia Academy 2014 Israel revealed that 84% of the Israeli public relies heavily on Wikipedia and 74% say that it provides all the information they need. Over one third of the population expressed interest in learning to write for Wikipedia.

Venture beyond

A month ago, I met some of you for the first time at the WMF’s monthly metrics meeting. Officially, today is my first day as Executive Director of the Foundation. In practice, it’s a day like many others: Today and in the future, we’ll keep working together towards our mission.

When I first started learning about Wikimedia, I thought to myself: this will be different. Now, seeing the world from within the information Big Bang, I know: it is.

Every second the universe of information is expanding around us, and Wikimedia is a major force that turns this information into knowledge. It is beholden to no one, yet accountable to each and every human being. We, the people who create knowledge and bring it to every corner of the world, are the ones that help it expand. We, the people who read and learn, are the ones that hold the power to make this world a better place.

I often speak about human experience. Most have understood this as talking about user experience: the way we access the information or contribute knowledge. You are — partially — right. But what I mean is bigger than that.

What I am after is our connection to the world and each other through knowledge. What I’d like us to do is to think big. Think beyond ourselves. Think about humanity as a whole. Because you can. Because Wikimedia is the place to transcend the now and to build the future.

This means that what’s ahead is bigger than any one of us. Yet, together, we can make it happen. It means thinking beyond ourselves. It means thinking as a student in Cambodia learning about Khmer poetry, or a doctor in France writing about infectious diseases. This means empathy, altruism and compassion. It means making things accessible, friendly and easy for everyone.

This is what makes Wikimedia big.

This is what makes each of us bigger than we could ever be.

This is the what. Our job, as the community and the Foundation, is to build the how. Where is the will, there is a way. We are here to walk it.

Let’s think big.

Lila Tretikov
Executive Director

Wikimedia Labs migrated to the new data center

The Wikimedia Labs platform enables volunteers to host software tools to support the community’s work, and to get involved in the technical operations of Wikimedia servers. As part of the Foundation’s ongoing work to reduce reliance on the old data center in Tampa, Florida (USA), Labs was moved to the new data center in Ashburn, Virginia in April, completing several months of work by WMF staff and by volunteers who operate Labs projects. Among the advantages is the switch to a new file system (NFS) which is much more reliable that the one used used for Labs in the old data center (GlusterFS, which had caused most of the Labs failures and downtime in the preceding months). Also, in the new data center, many Labs projects are now using the internal Labs web proxy, which provides several benefits including HTTPS access and increased user data privacy. The Toolserver, the predecessor of the “Tool Labs” part of Wikimedia Labs, is planned to shut down on June 30.

New MediaViewer starts getting released on Wikimedia sites

The Foundation’s multimedia team released Media Viewer v0.2 on 14 pilot sites in April, in preparation for a wider deployment in May. The overall response was favorable, and a growing majority of survey respondents was finding this new multimedia browser useful. The team also developed a set of metrics dashboards to track how often MediaViewer and its various features are used, and how fast it performs over the Internet, as well as local metrics dashboards for selected sites: first results showed a decline in image load time, and suggest that Media Viewer loads faster than the old file description pages.

Lila Tretikov

New Executive Director and Chief Communications Officer

Katherine Maher

In April, preparations took place to welcome the Foundation’s incoming executive director Lila Tretikov, who was announced on May 1. She will succeed Sue Gardner on June 1, who will move into a new role as special adviser. Lila Tretikov was born in the Soviet Union and moved to the United States as a teenager. She has been working for technology companies, primarily in open source, in the San Francisco Bay Area for the past 15 years, most recently at SugarCRM.

Also in April, Katherine Maher was announced as the Foundation’s new Chief Communications Officer.

Launching a Privacy Policy Built the Wiki Way

English

We are happy to announce that on April 25, 2014, the Wikimedia Foundation’s Board of Trustees approved a new privacy policy. The new privacy policy explains how we collect, use and manage the information of over twenty million registered users and 490 million monthly unique visitors to the Wikimedia projects.

But the policy wouldn’t have been possible without support from users like you. The new privacy policy is the result of a community consultation spanning over eight months.

A need for a change

Early 2013, we recognized that our privacy policy, which hadn’t been updated since 2008, did not address a number of new technologies or provide enough detail to our users about how their information was being handled. But the Wikimedia way is unique — we knew that we could not develop a privacy policy without the help of the very user community the privacy policy is intended to protect. So, we launched an open call for community input on June 18, 2013, to find out what issues mattered to you and what you wanted to see in a new policy.

Armed with that input and mindful of the sensitivities invoked by recent revelations of mass governmental surveillance programs, we created an initial draft proposal for a new privacy policy and opened up a 5.5-month long online discussion.

Wikipedia: built through collaboration.

Perfecting the privacy policy through consultation

Our initial draft of the new privacy policy underwent thorough review by the Wikimedia community and sparked some spirited debate. In fact, the discussion surrounding the privacy policy, data retention guidelines and access to nonpublic information policy[1] totaled over 195,000 words and resulted in over 250 changes to the documents. What emerged was a much stronger policy that reflects the global Wikimedia community’s values.

For more information about the consultation process and how the new policy differs from the old one, please see our previous post.

What happens now?

With the Board’s approval, we will begin a month-long notice period to give everyone another chance to review the new privacy policy. Following the notice period, the policy will officially go into effect.

We thank all those that participated in this open and collaborative process, which resulted in a privacy policy that was truly developed in the wiki way. In that spirit, the new privacy policy is licensed under a free license so that anyone can reuse and build upon it when creating their own privacy policies.

Michelle Paulson, Legal Counsel*
Geoff Brigham, General Counsel

* We would like to express our sincere thanks to all those that made this policy possible — we could not have created this policy without a truly interdepartmental effort and the valuable participation and feedback from the Wikimedia global community. Special thanks goes to James Alexander, Heather Walls, Luis Villa, Roshni Patel, Toby Negrin, Megumi Yukie, Dario Taraborelli, Jorge Vargas and Tiffany Li for their incredible support during this process.

  1. The Access to Nonpublic Information Policy was also approved by the Board of Trustees on April 25, 2014. Please note, however, certain requirements under that policy will only be triggered once we have completed building necessary tools and have given community members impacted by those requirements notice as outlined in the policy.

Lanzando una Política de Privacidad hecha al estilo Wiki

Estamos felices de anunciar que el 25 de abril de 2014, la Fundación Wikimedia y su Junta de Administradores aprobó una nueva política de privacidad. La nueva política de privacidad explica cómo recolectamos, usamos y manejamos la información de más de 20 millones de usuarios registrados y 490 millones de visitantes únicos al mes a los proyectos Wikimedia.

Pero ésta política no hubiese sido posible sin el apoyo de usuarios como tú. La nueva política de privacidad es el resultado de una consulta a la comunidad a lo largo de 8 meses.

Una necesidad de cambio

En 2013 reconocimos que nuestra política de privacidad, la cual no había sido actualizada desde 2008, no hacía referencia a nuevas tecnologías o proveía suficientes detalles a nuestros usuarios de cómo sería manejada su información. Pero la manera de Wikimedia es única – - supimos que no podríamos desarrollar una política de privacidad sin la ayuda de la mismísima comunidad de usuarios que la política de privacidad intenta proteger. Así que lanzamos un llamado abierto convocando la participación de la comunidad el 18 de junio de 2013, para averiguar qué problemas les importan y qué quieren ver en la nueva política.

Armados con el documento abierto y conscientes de las recientes revelaciones de varios programas gubernamentales de vigilancia masiva, creamos una propuesta inicial para la nueva política de privacidad y abrimos una discusión en línea, con una duración de 5 meses y medio.

Wikipedia: Hecha a través de colaboración.

Perfeccionando la política de privacidad a través de la consulta

Nuestra propuesta inicial de la nueva política de privacidad pasó por revisión de la comunidad Wikimedia y detonó un debate entusiasta. De hecho, la discusión concerniente a la política de privacidad, lineamientos de retención de información, y la Política de Accesso a la Información Privada[1] han sido contabilizadas más de 195 000 palabras y dieron como resultado más de 250 cambios en los documentos. Lo que surgió fue una política de privacidad mucho más fuerte que refleja los valores de la comunidad global Wikimedia.

Para obtener más información sobre el proceso de consulta y cómo la nueva política de privacidad difiere de la anterior, por favor consulte nuestra publicación anterior.

¿Qué pasa ahora?

Con la aprobación del Comité, comenzaremos un período de aviso de un mes de duración para darle a todos otra oportunidad de revisar la nueva política de privacidad. Después del periodo de aviso, la política entrará en vigor oficialmente.

Agradecemos a todos aquellos que han participado en este proceso de colaboración, que ha dado como resultado una política de privacidad que en verdad que ha sido desarrollada al estilo Wiki. En ese espíritu, la nueva política de privacidad está regida bajo una licencia libre, de tal modo que cualquiera reutilizarla y partir de ella para crear sus propias políticas de privacidad.

Michelle Paulson, Consejera Legal* Geoff Brigham, Consejero General

* Nos gustaría expresar nuestro más sincero agradecimiento a todos aquellos que hicieron posible esta política de privacidad – no habría sido posible sin un esfuerzo interdepartamental de gran magnitud, y la valiosa participación y retroalimentación de la comunidad global Wikimedia. Agradecimientos especiales a James Alexander, Heather Walls, Luis Villa, Roshni Patel, Toby Negrin, Megumi Yukie, Dario Taraborelli, Jorge Vargas,y a Tiffany Li por su increíble apoyo en este proceso.

  1. La Política de Acceso a la Información Privada también fue aprobada por la Junta de Administradores el 25 de abril de 2014. Sin embargo, por favor tomen en cuenta que ciertos requisitos bajo esa política de privacidad serán puestos en marcha únicamente hasta que hayamos terminado de crear las herramientas necesarias y que hayamos dado aviso a los miembros de la comunidad afectados por tales requisitos según está definido en la política.

Lancement d’une politique de confidentialité bâtie à la façon d’un Wiki

Nous sommes heureux d’annoncer que le 25 avril 2014, le conseil d’administration de la Fondation Wikimedia a approuvé une nouvelle politique de confidentialité. La nouvelle politique de confidentialité explique comment nous collectons, utilisons et gérons les informations de plus de vingt millions d’utilisateurs enregistrés et de 490 millions de visiteurs uniques mensuels des projets Wikimedia.

Mais la politique n’aurait pas été possible sans l’aide d’utilisateurs comme vous. La nouvelle politique de confidentialité est le résultat d’une consultation de la communauté étalée sur 8 mois.

Un besoin de changement

Début 2013, nous nous sommes rendu compte que notre politique de confidentialité, qui n’avait pas été mise à jour depuis 2008, ne prenait pas en compte des technologies nouvelles, ou ne fournissait pas assez de détails à nos utilisateurs sur la façon dont leurs données sont utilisées. La méthode Wikimedia étant unique — nous savions que nous ne pouvions pas concevoir une politique de confidentialité sans l’aide des chers utilisateurs que cette politique de confidentialité entend protéger. Nous avons donc lancé, le 18 juin 2013, un appel général à contribution auprès de la communauté, pour connaitre les problèmes rencontrés et ce que vous vouliez voir ajouter dans la nouvelle politique de confidentialité.

Avec ces contributions, et conscients de la sensibilité liée aux affaires récemment révélées de programmes gouvernementaux de surveillance de masse, nous avons créé une ébauche initiale de proposition d’une nouvelle politique de confidentialité et nous avons ouvert une discussion en ligne de 5 mois et demi.

Wikipedia : produit par la collaboration.

Améliorer la politique de confidentialité au travers d’une consultation

Notre proposition initiale de politique de confidentialité a subi une relecture minutieuse par la communauté Wikimedia, et a provoqué des débats de haut niveau. Plus précisément, la discussion autour de la politique de confidentialité, des principes de conservation des données, et de la politique d’accès aux informations non-publiques[1] totalise plus de 195 000 mots et a fait l’objet de plus de 250 modifications de documents. Il en a émergé une politique plus solide, qui reflète les valeurs de toute la communauté Wikimedia.

Pour plus d’informations sur le processus de consultation et les différences entre la nouvelle politique de confidentialité et l’ancienne, voir l’article précédent.

Que se passe-t-il maintenant?

Avec l’approbation par le Conseil d’Administration, nous allons commencer une période d’information d’un mois pour donner à tous une autre occasion de relire la nouvelle politique de confidentialité. Après cette période d’information, la politique de confidentialité prendra officiellement effet.

Nous remercions tous les participants de ce processus ouvert et collaboratif, qui a conduit à une politique de confidentialité réellement conçue comme un Wiki. Dans cet esprit, notre nouvelle politique de confidentialité est diffusée sous une licence libre, pour que chacun puisse la réutiliser et la prendre comme base pour créer sa propre politique de confidentialité.

Michelle Paulson, Conseillère juridique* Geoff Brigham, Avocat Conseil

* Nous voudrions exprimer nos sincères remerciements à tous ceux qui ont rendu possible la rédaction de cette politique de confidentialité — nous n’aurions pu écrire cette politique sans un réel effort entre départements, la participation de grande valeur et les retours de toute la communauté Wikimedia. Nous remercions particulièrement James Alexander, Heather Walls, Luis Villa, Roshni Patel, Toby Negrin, Megumi Yukie, Dario Taraborelli, Jorge Vargas, et Tiffany Li pour leur incroyable investissement dans le processus de rédaction.

  1. La politique d’accès aux informations non-publiques a aussi été approuvée par le Conseil d’Administration le 25 avril 2014. Il faut noter toutefois que certaines obligations de cette politique ne seront effectives qu’une fois le développement des outils nécessaires terminé, et que les membres de la communauté concernés par ces obligations auront été prévenus comme précisé dans notre nouvelle politique.

Una Politica sulla Privacy Costruita in Stile Wiki

Siamo lieti di annunciare che il 25 aprile 2014, la Board of Trustees della Wikimedia Foundation ha approvato una nuova politica sulla privacy. La nuova politica spiega come raccogliamo, usiamo e gestiamo le informazioni su più di venti milioni di utenti registrati e 490 milioni di visitatori unici dei progetti Wikimedia.

Ma non sarebbe stato possibile giungere a quest orisultato senza il supporto di utenti come te. La nuova politica sulla privacy è il risultato di una consultazione comunitaria durata più di otto mesi.

Il bisogno di cambiamento

All’inizio del 2013, abbiamo notato che la nostra politica sulla privacy, che non era stata aggiornata dal 2008, non prendeva in considerazione le ultime tecnologie nè forniva sufficienti dettagli agli utenti su come i loro dati venivano gestiti. Ma lo stile Wikimedia è unico — sapevamo che non avremmo potuto sviluppare una politica sulla privacy senza l’aiuto della stessa comunità di utenti che questa avrebbe protetto. Così, abbiamo lanciato una richiesta di contributi da parte della comunità il 18 giugno 2013, per capire quali aspetti vi interessassero maggiormente e cosa voleste vedere nella nuova policy.

Forti di quel contributo e tenendo a mente le sensibilità toccate dalle recenti rivelazioni su programmi governativi di sorveglianza di massa, abbiamo creato una proposta iniziale per una nuova politica sulla privacy e aperto una discussione online lunga 5 mesi e mezzo.

Wikipedia: costruita tramite collaborazione.

Miglioramento della politica sulla privacy tramite consultazione

La nostra proposta iniziale di politica sulla privacy è stata sottoposta ad un’attenta revisione dalla comunità di Wikimedia ed ha scatenato alcuni dibattiti accesi. Infatti, la discussione riguardo ad essa, alle linee guida sull’archiviazione, e la politica di accesso ad informazioni non pubbliche[1] ha accumulato più di 195’000 parole e 250 cambiamenti ai documenti. Ciò che è emerso è una politica molto più forte che riflette i valori della comunità Wikimedia globale.

Per maggiori informazioni riguardo al processo di consultazione e su come la nuova politica è diversa dalla vecchia, si veda il nostro post precedente.

Cosa succede ora?

Con l’approvazione della Board, inizieremo un periodo di notifica lungo un mese per dare a tutti un’altra occasione di revisionare la nuova politica della privacy. Dopo il periodo di notifica, la plitica entrerà ufficialmente in vigore.

Ringraziamo tutti coloro che hanno partecipato a questo processo aperto e collaborativo, che ha prodotto una politica sulla privacy sviluppata veramente in stile wiki. In quello spirito, la nuova politica sulla privacy è rilasciata con una licenza libera affinché chiunque la possa riusare e sfruttare come punto di partenza per creare le proprie politiche sulla privacy

Michelle Paulson, Legal Counsel* Geoff Brigham, General Counsel

* Vorremmo esprimere il nostro sincero ringraziamento a tutti quelli che hanno reso questa politica possibile — non avremmo potuto crearla senza uno sforzo veramente interdipartimentale e con la partecipazione e i commenti della comunità Wikimedia globale. Un ringraziamento speciale a James Alexander, Heather Walls, Luis Villa, Roshni Patel, Toby Negrin, Megumi Yukie, Dario Taraborelli, Jorge Vargas, e Tiffany Li per il loro incredibile supporto durante questo processo.

  1. Anche la Politica di Accesso ad Informazioni Non Pubbliche è stata approvata dalla Board of Trustees il 25 aprile 2014. Considerate, comunque, che alcuni obblighi derivanti da essa entreranno in vigore quando avremo completato la creazione degli strumenti necessari e avvisato i membri della comunità affetti da essa.

Spouštíme Pravidla ochrany osobních údajů vytvořená v duchu wiki

S radostí oznamujeme, že 25. dubna 2014 schválila Správní rada nadace Wikimedia nová Pravidla ochrany osobních údajů. Nová pravidla vysvětlují, jak sbíráme, používáme a spravujeme údaje více než dvaceti milionů registrovaných uživatelů a měsíčních 490 milionů unikátních návštěvníků projektů Wikimedia.

Pravidla by však nemohla vzniknout bez pomoci uživatelů, jako jste vy. Nová pravidla jsou výsledkem více než osmiměsíční konzultace s komunitou.

Potřeba_změny

Na začátku roku 2013 jsme si uvědomili, že naše Pravidla ochrany osobních údajů, která se nezměnila od roku 2008, neřeší řadu nových technologií a dostatečně podrobně nepopisují našim uživatelům, jak se s jejich údaji zachází. Ale na projektech Wikimedia všechno funguje jinak – věděli jsme, že pravidla ochrany osobních údajů nemůžeme vytvořit bez pomoci právě té komunity uživatelů, které mají tato pravidla chránit. Takže jsme 18. června 2013 zveřejnili otevřenou výzvu k vyjádření komunity, abychom zjistili, na jakých věcech vám záleží a co si přejete v nových pravidlech vidět.

Vybaveni těmito informacemi a vědomi si choulostivosti vyvolané nedávnými odhaleními vládních programů hromadného sledování jsme vytvořili prvotní návrh nových pravidel a otevřeli pět a půl měsíce trvající online diskusi.

Wikipedie: vytvořeno díky spolupráci

Konzultacemi k dokonalým pravidlům na ochranu osobních údajů

Náš prvotní návrh nových pravidel na ochranu osobních údajů byl podroben pečlivé kontrole komunitou Wikimedia a vyvolal živou diskusi. Ve skutečnosti diskuse kolem Pravidel na ochranu osobních údajů, Směrnice pro uchovávání údajů a Pravidel přístupu k neveřejným informacím[1] dosáhla více než 195 000 slov a vzešlo z ní více než 250 změn v těchto dokumentech. Výsledkem jsou mnohem silnější pravidla, která odrážejí hodnoty globální komunity Wikimedia.

Více informací o procesu konzultací a rozdílech nových pravidel oproti starým najdete v našem předchozím článku.

Co se stane teď?

Se schválením Správní rady zahájíme měsíční lhůtu, abychom dali všem příležitost prohlédnout si nová pravidla. Po této lhůtě nabudou pravidla oficiálně účinnosti.

Děkujeme všem, kdo se zúčastnili tohoto otevřeného kolaborativního procesu, jehož výsledkem jsou pravidla na ochranu osobních údajů vytvořená opravdu v duchu wiki. Ve stejném duchu jsou nová pravidla zveřejněna pod svobodnou licencí, takže je kdokoli může využít a postavit na nich svá vlastní pravidla ochrany osobních údajů.

* Chtěli bychom upřímně poděkovat všem, kdo umožnili vznik těchto pravidel – tato pravidla bychom nemohli vytvořit bez úsilí napříč odděleními a hodnotné účasti a komentářů od globální komunity Wikimedia. Obzvláště děkujeme Jamesi Alexanderovi, Heather Wallsové, Luisi Villovi, Roshni Patelové, Tobymu Negrinovi, Megumi Yukieové, Dariu Taraborellimu, Jorge Vargasovi a Tiffany Liové za jejich neuvěřitelnou podporu v průběhu tohoto procesu.

  1. Pravidla přístupu k neveřejným informacím schválila Správní rada také 25. dubna 2014. Uvědomte si však, že některé požadavky těchto pravidel budou účinné až poté, co dokončíme přípravu nezbytných nástrojů a informujeme členy komunity, kterých se budou tyto požadavky týkat, jak je v pravidlech uvedeno.

Einführung einer Datenschutzrichtlinie, erstellt nach Wiki-Art

Wir freuen uns bekannt zu geben, dass das Board of Trustees der Wikimedia Foundation unserer neuen Datenschutzrichtlinie zugestimmt hat. Die neue Datenschutzrichtlinie erklärt, wie wir die Informationen über unsere 20 Millionen registrierten Benutzer und die monatlich 490 Millionen Unique Visitors der Wikimedia-Projekte sammeln, benutzen und verwerten.

Doch die Richtlinie wäre ohne die Unterstützung von Benutzern wie dir nicht möglich gewesen. Die neue Datenschutzrichtlinie ist das Ergebnis einer Gemeinschaftsarbeit, die sich über acht Monate hingezogen hat.

Notwendigkeit für eine Veränderung>

Anfang 2013 erkannten wir, dass unsere Datenschutzrichtlinie, die seit 2008 nicht mehr aktualisiert worden war, einigen neuen Technologien nicht mehr entsprach oder unseren Benutzern nicht genügend Details darüber bereitstellt, wie deren Informationen verwendet werden. Aber die Vorgehensweise der Wikimedia ist einzigartig — wir wussten, dass wir keine Datenschutzrichtlinie ohne die Hilfe eben derjenigen Benutzer-Community entwickeln konnten, welche die Datenschutzrichtlinie schützen soll. Also starteten wir am 18. Juni 2013 einen offenen Aufruf zur Mithilfe unserer Community, um herauszufinden, welche Themen euch wichtig sind und was ihr in der neuen Richtlinie sehen wollt.

Gerüstet mit diesem Input, und unter Berücksichtigung des durch die jüngsten Enthüllungen von staatlichen Massen-Überwachungs-Programmen geschärften Bewusstseins für solche Themen, schufen wir einen anfänglichen Entwurf/Vorschlag für eine neue Datenschutzrichtlinie und eröffneten eine fünfeinhalb Monate lange Online-Diskussion.

Wikipedia: gebaut durch Zusammenarbeit.

Perfektionierung der Datenschutzrichtlinie durch Konsultationen

Unser erster Entwurf der neuen Datenschutzrichtlinie durchlief eine gründliche Überprüfung durch die Wikimedia-Gemeinschaft und entfachte eine beherzte Debatte. In der Tat, die Diskussion um die Datenschutzbestimmungen, Datenaufbewahrungsrichtlinien und Richtlinie über den Zugang zu nicht-öffentlichen Informationen[1] ergaben über 195.000 Wörter und resultierten in über 250 Änderungen der Dokumente. Was dabei herauskam, war eine weitaus stärkere Richtlinie, welche die Werte der globalen Wikimedia-Gemeinschaft widerspiegelt.

For more information about the consultation process and how the new policy differs from the old one, please see our previous post.

Was geschieht jetzt?

Mit der Zustimmung des Boards werden wir eine einmonatige Probefrist starten, um allen eine weitere Möglichkeit zu geben, die neue Datenschutzrichtlinie nochmals durchzusehen. Nach dieser Frist wird die Richtlinie offiziell in Kraft treten.

Wir danken allen, die an diesem offenen und kooperativen Prozess teilgenommen haben, welcher in einer Datenschutzrichtlinie resultierte, die tatsächlich auf Wiki-Weise entwickelt wurde. In diesem Sinne steht die neue Datenschutzrichtlinie unter einer freien Lizenz, damit alle diese bei der Erstellung ihrer eigenen Datenschutzrichtlinien wiederverwenden und darauf aufbauen können.

Michelle Paulson, Rechtsbeistand* Geoff Brigham, Chefsyndikus

* Wir möchten unseren aufrichtigen Dank an alle diejenigen aussprechen, die diese Richtlinie möglich gemacht haben – wir hätten diese Richtlinie nicht ohne den wirklich abteilungsübergreifenden Arbeitsaufwand und die wertvolle Beteiligung und Resonanz der globalen Gemeinschaft von Wikimedia erschaffen können.

Besonderer Dank geht an James Alexander, Heather Walls, Luis Villa, Roshni Patel, Toby Negrin, Megumi Yukie, Dario Taraborelli, Jorge Vargas und Tiffany Li für ihre unglaubliche Unterstützung während dieses Prozesses.

  1. Die Richtlinie über den Zugriff auf nicht öffentliche Informationen wurde ebenfalls am 25. April 2014 durch das Board of Trustees genehmigt. Bitte beachten Sie jedoch, dass bestimmte Anforderungen im Rahmen dieser Richtlinie erst dann ausgelöst werden, wenn wir die erforderlichen Werkzeuge bereitgestellt haben und die Community-Mitglieder, welche von diesen Anforderungen betroffen sind, benachrichtigt haben, wie es in der Richtlinie vorgesehen ist.

Внедряем Политику конфиденциальности в стиле Вики

Основное

Мы рады сообщить, что 25 апреля 2014 года попечительский совет Фонда Викимедиа одобрил новую политику конфиденциальности. Новая политика конфиденциальности разъясняет, каким образом мы собираем, используем и администрируем информацию о более чем 20 миллионах зарегистрированных участников вики-проектов Фонда Викимедиа и более чем 490 миллионах уникальных посетителей в месяц.

Разработка политики конфиденциальности была бы невозможна без помощи участников. Новая политика – результат широких консультаций с сообществом, которые продолжались более 8 месяцев.

Ветер перемен

В начале 2013 года мы осознали, что наша политика конфиденциальности, не обновлявшаяся с 2008 года, не учитывала ряд новых технологий и не предоставляла нашим пользователям достаточно подробностей о том, как обрабатывается их информация. Но метод Викимедиа уникален — мы знали, что не можем разработать политику конфиденциальности без помощи сообщества самих пользователей, которых эта политика конфиденциальности предназначена защищать. Поэтому мы опубликовали призыв к сообществу 18 июня 2013 года, чтобы выяснить, какие вопросы важны для вас и что вы хотите увидеть в новой политике.

Вооружившись этим призывом и помня о нервозности, вызванной недавними откровениями о правительственных программах массовой слежки, мы создали черновой проект новой политики конфиденциальности и организовали онлайн-дискуссию продолжительностью 5,5 месяцев.

Википедия: создана сотрудничеством.

Совершенствование политики конфиденциальности обсуждением

Наш проект новой политики конфиденциальности прошёл ревизию сообщества Викимедиа и вызвал вдохновенные споры. Дискуссия о политике конфиденциальности, правилах хранения данных и политике доступа к непубличной информации[1] превысила по объёму 195000 слов и привела к внесению в документы более 250 изменений. В результате политика стала сильней и лучше отражающей ценности сообщества Викимедиа.

И что теперь?

После одобрения Попечительским советом мы начнём уведомительный период продолжительностью месяц, чтобы каждый имел шанс просмотреть новую политику конфиденциальности. После уведомительного периода политика официально вступит в действие.

Мы благодарим всех тех, кто принял участие в этом открытом процессе сотрудничества, в результате которого политика конфиденциальности обрела истинный вики-стиль. В том же духе, новая политика конфиденциальности распространяется под свободной лицензией, чтобы любой мог использовать её текст для создания своих политик конфиденциальности.

Michelle Paulson, консультант по юридическим вопросам* Geoff Brigham, консультант по общим вопросам

* Мы хотим выразить свою искреннюю благодарность всем тем, кто сделал эту политику возможной — мы не смогли бы создать эту политику без поистине междепартаментных усилий и ценного участия и обратной связи со стороны глобального сообщества Викимедиа. Особая благодарность пользователям James Alexander, Heather Walls, Luis Villa, Roshni Patel, Toby Negrin, Megumi Yukie, Dario Taraborelli, Jorge Vargas и Tiffany Li за их невероятную поддержку во время этого процесса.

  1. Политика доступа к непубличной информации была также одобрена Попечительским советом 25 апреля 2014 года. Пожалуйста, обратите внимание, что некоторые положения этой политики будут введены в действие после завершения создания нами необходимых инструментов и рассылки уведомлений членам сообщества, которых затрагивают те требования, как это обозначено в политике.

发布新版隐私方针创造维基风格

正文

非常高兴宣布在2014年4月25日,维基媒体基金会理事会通过了新的隐私方针。新的隐私方针包括我们如何收集、使用和管理维基媒体基金会项目2000万注册用户每月4亿9千万访问者的隐私信息。

然而新的方针没有您的支持不可能成功。新的隐私方针发布后开始了长达8个月的公众咨询

强烈的更新需求

早在2013年,我们认识到我们的隐私方针从2008年起一直没更新过,关于如何处理用户的信息,方针没有提到一些新技术,或者说没有提供足够的细节。不过,维基媒体有独特的处事方式——对于隐私方针,如果它意欲保护的用户社区不施以援手,我们就不能扩展。所以我们在2013年6月18日启动了公开讨论,以了解您希望在新方针中提到的问题。

有此契机,并且深切关注最近披露的敏感问题——大规模政府监控计划,我们为新隐私方针创建了一项最初议案草案,并且发起了五个半月之久的在线讨论

维基百科:协作建立。

协商以完善隐私方针

新隐私方针的初始草案经过维基媒体社区审议,也迸发过一些激烈讨论。实际上,对隐私方针、数据保留指引非公开信息使用方针[1]的讨论,共计有19万5千余言,修改文档达250次以上。一个更加强健的方针出现了,它体现了维基全球社区的价值观。

关于协商进程和新旧方针差异的更多信息,请参见 前一帖

说得直接点吧:发生了什么事?

经理事会同意,我们将开始为期一个月的公示,使公众有机会再次探讨此新隐私方针。公示期结束后,此方针将正式生效。

我们感谢所有参与此次公开协作过程的人,此过程的结果是隐私方针确是以维基的方式制定完成。本着这一精神,新隐私方针得以自由许可授权,因此任何人在创建自己的隐私条款时都可以重用和基于它。

Michelle Paulson法律顾问* Geoff Brigham总顾问

* 我们要向那些使这个方针成为可能的人们表达我们诚挚的感谢 — 如果没有真正的多个部门的努力和来自维基全球社区的宝贵的参与和反馈,我们就不可能创建出这个方针。特别感谢James Alexander, Heather Walls, Luis Villa, Roshni Patel, Toby Negrin, Megumi Yukie, Dario Taraborelli, Jorge Vargas, 和Tiffany Li ,在这次协作过程中,他们提供了非常棒的支持。

  1. 2014年4月25日,理事会也曾批准《非公开信息使用方针》。但请注意,对于特定要件,仅当我们完成建立必要的工具,并且向受影响的社区成员发出政策所述的通知后,那些要件才会被触发

Запуск політики приватності у вікі-стилі

Вміст

Ми раді оголосити, що 25 квітня 2014 року Піклувальна рада Фонду Вікімедіа схвалила нову політику приватності. Нова політика приватності пояснює, яким чином ми збираємо, використовуємо та керуємо інформацією щодо двадцяти мільйонів зареєстрованих користувачів і 490 мільйонів унікальних відвідувачів проектів Вікімедіа щомісяця.

Але ця політика не могла б з’явитися без підтримки від користувачів, як ви. Нова політика приватності стала результатом консультацій зі спільнотою, що тривали понад вісім місяців.

Необхідність змін

На початку 2013 року ми усвідомили, що наша політика приватності, яка не оновлювалася від 2008 року, не торкається деяких нових технологій і не надає достатньо детальної інформації нашим користувачам щодо того, як обробляється їхня інформація. Але шлях Вікімедіа унікальний — ми знали, що не можемо розробити політику приватності без допомоги самої спільноти користувачів, яку політика приватності покликана захищати. Тому 18 червня 2013 року ми опублікували відкритий заклик до спільноти визначити, які проблеми вас турбують і що б ви хотіли бачити у новій політиці.

Озброївшись вашим внеском і пам’ятаючи про чутливість спільноти, викликану нещодавніми викриттями масових урядових програм стеження, ми створили початкову чернетку проекту нової політики приватності і відкрили онлайн-дискусію тривалістю 5,5 місяців.

Вікіпедія: створена співпрацею.

Удосконалення політики приватності через консультації

Наша початкова чернетка нової політики приватності пережила розгляд спільнотою Вікімедіа і розпалила натхнені дебати. Фактично, обговорення довкола політики приватності, настанов щодо зберігання даних та політики доступу до непублічної інформації[1] вилилося у понад 195 тисяч слів і більше, ніж 250 змін у документах. Те, що з’явилося в результаті, було набагато сильнішою політикою, що відображала глобальні цінності спільноти Вікімедіа.

Детальнішу інформацію щодо процесу консультацій та відмінностей між новою і старою політиками дивіться наш попередній допис.

І що тепер?

Після затвердження Радою, ми почнемо місячний період сповіщень, щоб дати кожному можливість переглянути нову політику приватності. Після завершення періоду сповіщень, політика офіційно буде введена в дію.

Ми дякуємо усім тим, хто брав участь у цьому відкритому процесі співпраці, який вилився у політику приватності, розроблену цілком у стилі вікі. У цьому ж дусі, нова політика приватності поширюється під вільною ліцензією, так що кожен може використати її повторно і відштовхуватися від неї, створюючи свої власні політики приватності.

Michelle Paulson, радник з правових питань* Geoff Brigham, радник із загальних питань

* Ми б хотіли висловити нашу щиру подяку усім, хто зробив цю політику можливою — ми б не змогли створити цю політику без справді міжвідомчих зусиль і цінної участі та відгуків глобальної спільноти Вікімедіа. Особливо вдячні таким людям: James Alexander, Heather Walls, Luis Villa, Roshni Patel, Toby Negrin, Megumi Yukie, Dario Taraborelli, Jorge Vargas, та Tiffany Li — за їх надзвичайну підтримку впродовж цього процесу.

  1. Політика доступу до непублічної інформації була також затверджена Піклувальною радою 25 квітня 2014 року. Зверніть, будь ласка, увагу, що деякі вимоги цієї політики будуть введені в дію лише після того, як ми завершимо розробку необхідних інструментів і сповістимо тих членів спільноти, яких ці вимоги зачеплять, як зазначено у політиці.

Llançant una política de privadesa feta a l’estil wiki

Som feliços d’anunciar que el 25 d’abril del 2014, la Fundació Wikimedia i la seva Junta d’Administradors va aprovar una nova política de privadesa. La nova política de privadesa explica com recoŀlectem, utilitzem i manegem la informació de més de 20 milions d’usuaris registrats i 490 milions de visitants únics al mes als projectes Wikimedia.

Però aquesta política no hagués estat possible sense el suport d’usuaris com tu. La nova política de privadesa és el resultat d’una consulta a la comunitat al llarg de 8 mesos.

Una necessitat de canvi

El 2013 vam reconèixer que la nostra política de privadesa, la qual no havia estat actualitzada des del 2008, no feia referència a noves tecnologies o proveïa suficients detalls als nostres usuaris de com seria manejada la seva informació. Però la manera de Wikimedia és única – - vam saber que no podríem desenvolupar una política de privadesa sense l’ajuda de la mateixa comunitat d’usuaris que la política de privadesa intenta protegir. Així que llancem una crida oberta convocant la participació de la comunitat el 18 de juny del 2013, per esbrinar quins problemes importen i què es vol veure a la nova política.

Armats amb el document obert i conscients de les recents revelacions de diversos programes governamentals de vigilància massiva, vam crear una proposta inicial per a la nova política de privadesa i vam obrir una discussió en línia, amb una durada de 5 mesos i mig.

Viquipèdia: Feta a través de coŀlaboració.

Perfeccionant la política de privadesa a través de la consulta

La nostra proposta inicial de la nova política de privadesa va passar per revisió de la comunitat Wikimedia i va detonar un debat entusiasta. De fet, la discussió concernent a la política de privadesa, directrius de retenció d’informació, i la Política d’Accés a la Informació Privada[1] han estat comptabilitzades més de 195000 paraules i van donar com a resultat més de 250 canvis als documents. El que va sorgir va ser una política de privadesa molt més forta que reflecteix els valors de la comunitat global Wikimedia.

Per obtenir més informació sobre el procés de consulta i com la nova política de privadesa difereix de l’anterior, si us plau, consulta la nostra publicació anterior.

Què passa ara

Amb l’aprovació del Comitè, començarem un període d’avís d’un mes de durada per donar-li a tots una altra oportunitat de revisar la nova política de privadesa. Després del període d’avís, la política entrarà en vigor oficialment.

Agraïm a tots aquells que han participat en aquest procés de coŀlaboració, que ha donat com resultat una política de privadesa que realment ha estat desenvolupada a l’estil wiki. En aquest esperit, la nova política de privadesa està regida sota una llicència lliure, de tal manera que qualsevol pot reutilitzar-la i partir d’ella pot crear les seves pròpies polítiques de privadesa.

Michelle Paulson, Consellera Legal* Geoff Brigham, Conseller General

* Ens agradaria expressar el nostre més sincer agraïment a tots aquells que van fer possible aquesta política de privadesa – no hauria estat possible sense un esforç interdepartamental de gran magnitud, i la valuosa participació i retroalimentació de la comunitat global Wikimedia. Agraïments especials a James Alexander, Heather Walls, Luis Villa, Roshni Patel, Toby Negrin, Megumi Yukie, Dario Taraborelli, Jorge Vargas, i a Tiffany Li pel seu increïble suport en aquest procés.

  1. La Política d’Accés a la Informació Privada també va ser aprovada per la Junta d’Administradors el 25 d’abril del 2014. No obstant això, si us plau preneu en compte que certs requisits sota aquesta política de privadesa seran engegats únicament fins que hàgim acabat de crear les eines necessàries i que hàgim donat avís als membres de la comunitat afectats per tals requisits segons està definit a la política.

Pelancaran Membina Dasar Privasi melalui Cara Wiki

Kami gembira untuk mengumumkan bahawa pada 25 April 2014, Badan Amanah Yayasan Wikimedia meluluskan dasar privasi yang baru. Dasar privasi baru menjelaskan bagaimana kami mengumpul, menggunakan, dan menguruskan maklumat bagi lebih dari dua puluh juta pengguna berdaftar dan 490 juta pelawat unik bulanan ke projek Wikimedia.

Bagaimanapun dasar ini tidak mungkin tercapai tanpa sokongan daripada pengguna seperti anda. Dasar privasi baru ini merupakan hasil daripada perundingan masyarakat yang merangkumi lebih daripada lapan bulan.

Satu_keperluan_untuk_perubahan

Sejak awal 2013, kami menyedari bahawa dasar privasi kami, yang tidak berubah sejak tahun 2008, tidak memberi penjelasan mengenai beberapa teknologi baru atau menyediakan perincian yang mencukupi pada para pengguna mengenai bagaimana maklumat mereka dikendalikan. Tetapi cara Wikimedia adalah unik – kita tahu bahawa kita tidak boleh membangunkan dasar privasi tanpa bantuan komuniti yang akan dilindungi oleh dasar privasi ini. Jadi, kami telah melancarkan satu panggilan terbuka untuk input masyarakat pada 18 Jun 2013, untuk mengetahui isu-isu yang penting bagi anda dan apa yang anda mahu lihat dalam dasar baru itu.
Early 2013, we recognized that our privacy policy, which hadn’t been updated since 2008, did not address a number of new technologies or provide enough detail to our users about how their information was being handled. But the Wikimedia way is unique — we knew that we could not develop a privacy policy without the help of the very user community the privacy policy is intended to protect. So, we launched an open call for community input on June 18, 2013, to find out what issues mattered to you and what you wanted to see in a new policy.

Berbekalkan input itu dan prihatin terhadap sensitiviti yang dicetuskan oleh pendedahan terbaru mengenai program pemantauan pukal kerajaan, kami mencipta satu cadangan lakaran awal bagi dasar privisi baru dan terbuka sehingga 5.5-bulan perbincangan di talian.

Wikipedia: dibina menerusi usaha sama.

Menyempurnakan dasar privasi melalui perundingan

Draf awal dasar privasi baru kami melalui penilaian menyeluruh oleh masyarakat Wikimedia dan mencetuskan beberapa perdebatan bersemangat. Malah, perbincangan sekitar dasar privasi, garis panduan pengekalan data, dan capaian pada polisi maklumat bukan awam[1] berjumlah lebih 195,000 perkataan dan menghasilkan lebih 250 perubahan pada dokumen. Apa yang muncul adalah dasar yang lebih kukuh yang mencerminkan nilai-nilai masyarakat Wikimedia sejagat.

Bagi maklumat lanjut mengenai proses perundingan dan bagaimana dasar baru berbeza berbanding yang lama, sila lihat pos sebelum kami.

Apa yang berlaku sekarang?

Dengan kelulusan Lembaga Pengarah, kami akan memulakan tempoh notis sebulan untuk memberi semua orang satu lagi peluang bagi mengkaji semula dasar privasi yang baru. Selepas tempoh notis itu, dasar ini yang secara rasmi akan berkuat kuasa.

Kami berterima kasih kepada semua orang yang telah mengambil bahagian dalam proses kerjasama dan terbuka ini, yang menghasilkan dasar privasi yang benar-benar dibangunkan melalui cara wiki. Dengan semangat itu, dasar privasi baru dilesenkan di bawah lesen bebas supaya sesiapa sahaja yang boleh menggunakan semula dan memperbaikinya apabila mencipta dasar privasi mereka sendiri.

Michelle Paulson, Penasihat Undang-undang* Geoff Brigham, Ketua Peguam (“General Counsel”)

* Kami ingin merakamkan ucapan terima kasih kepada semua orang yang menjadikan dasar ini mungkin – kita tidak mungkin dapat mencipta dasar ini tanpa usaha antara jabatan yang sebenar dan penyertaan yang berharga dan maklum balas daripada masyarakat Wikimedia sejagat. Terima kasih diucapkan kepada James Alexander, Heather Walls, Luis Villa, Roshni Patel, Toby Negrin, Megumi Yukie, Dario Taraborelli, Jorge Vargas, dan Tiffany Li atas sokongan luar biasa mereka semasa proses ini.

  1. Capaian pada Dasar Maklumat Bukan Awam turut diluluskan oleh Badan Amanah pada 25 April 2014. Sila ambil perhatian, bahawa syarat-syarat tertentu di bawah polisi itu hanya akan dicetuskan sebaik sahaja kami selesai membina alat yang diperlukan dan telah memberikan notis pada anggota masyarakat terjejas oleh keperluan tersebut seperti yang digariskan di dalam polisi.

Lançando uma Política de Privacidade Feita de Maneira Wiki

É com muita alegria que anuciamos que no dia 25 de abril, a administração Wikimedia Foundation’s aprovou as novas politicas de privacidade. As novas politicas de privacidade explicam como nós recolhemos, usamos e gerimos a informação sobre 20 milhões de utilizadores registados e 490 milhões de visitas unicas por mês ao projecto Wikimedia.

Mas estas novas politicas não seriam possiveis sem o apoio de utilizadores como você. As novas politicas de privacidade é o resultado da consolturia da comunidade, ao longo de oito meses.

A necessidade de mudança

No ano 2013 reconhecemos que a nossa política de privacidade, a qual não tinha sido atualizada desde o 2008, não fazia referência a novas tecnologias ou fornecia suficientes detalhes aos nossos utilizadores de como seria manipulada a sua informação. Mas a maneira de Wikimedia é única – - soubemos que não poderíamos desenvolver uma política de privacidade sem a ajuda da mismísima comunidade de utilizadores que a política de privacidade tenta proteger. De modo que lançamos um chamado aberto convocando a participação da comunidade o 18 de junho do 2013, para averiguar quais problemas tem de importar-se e daí o que querem ver na nova política.

Armados com o documento aberto e conscientes das recentes revelações de vários programas governamentais de vigilância em massa, criámos uma proposta inicial para a nova política de privacidade e abrimos uma discussão online, com uma duração de 5 meses e meio.

Wikipédia: construída através da colaboração.

Aperfeiçoar a política de privacidade por meio de fazê-lo numa consulta

A nossa proposta inicial da nova política de privacidade passou por revisão da comunidade Wikimedia e detonou um debate animado. Na verdade, a discussão circundante à política de privacidade, diretrizes de retenção de informação, e a Política de Accesso à Informação Privada[1] foram contabilizadas mais de 195000 palavras e deram como resultado mais de 250 mudanças nos documentos. O que surgiu foi uma política de privacidade bem mais forte que reflete os valores da comunidade global Wikimedia.

Para obter mais informação sobre o processo de consulta e como a nova política de privacidade difere da anterior, façam favor, consultem a nossa publicação anterior.

O quê acontecer-lhes-á agora

Com a aprovação do Comité, começaremos um período de aviso num mês de duração que dar-lhes-á a todos outra oportunidade de revisar a nova política de privacidade. Após o período de aviso, a política entrará em vigor oficialmente.

Agradecemos a todos aqueles que participaram neste processo de colaboração, que deu como resultado uma política de privacidade que na verdade foi desenvolvida ao estilo Wiki. Nesse espírito, a nova política de privacidade está regida sob uma licença livre, de tal modo que qualquer podê-la-á reutilizar e partir dela para criar as suas próprias políticas de privacidade.

Michelle Paulson, Conselheiro Legal* Geoff Brigham, Conselheiro Geral

* Gostaríamos de expressar o nosso mais sincero agradecimento a todos aqueles que fizeram possível esta política de privacidade – não seria possível sem um esforço interdepartamental de grande magnitude, e a valiosa participação e retroalimentação da comunidade global Wikimedia. Agradecimentos especiais a James Alexander, Heather Walls, Luis Villa, Roshni Patel, Toby Negrin, Megumi Yukie, Dario Taraborelli, Jorge Vargas, e a Tiffany Li pelo seu incrível apoio neste processo.

  1. A Política de Acesso à Informação Privada também foi aprovada pela Junta de Administradores o 25 de abril do 2014. No entanto, façam favor, tomem em conta que certos requisitos baixo esta política de privacidade serão começados unicamente até que se termine de criar as ferramentas necessárias e que se dê aviso aos membros da comunidade afetados por tais requisitos segundo está definido na política.

Wiki Yoluyla Tasarlanmış bir Gizlilik Politikasını Başlatmak

Sizlere Wikimedia Güven Kurulu‘nun 25 nisan 2014 tarihinde yeni bir gizlilik politikasını onayladığını duyurmaktan mutluluk duyarız. Bu yeni gizlilik politikası yirmi milyona aşkın kayıtlı kullanıcı ve 490 milyon farklı ziyaretçiden elde edilen verilerin nasıl toplandığını, kullanıldığını ve düzenlendiğini açıklamaktadır.

Ancak bu politika sizin gibi kullanıcıların desteği olmasaydı mümkün olmazdı. Yeni politika sekiz ay boyunca sizlerden gelen öneriler sayesinde yaratıldı.

Bir değişim ihtiyacı

2013 yılının başlarında, 2008′den beri güncellenmemiş olan gizlilik politikamızın bir dizi yeni teknolojiyle bağlantı kuramadığını ve kullanıcılarımıza bilgilerinin nasıl işlendiğiyle ilgili yeteri kadar detay sunamadığını belirledik. Fakat Wikimedia yöntemi benzersizdir, kullancıları koruma amacındaki bir gizlilik politikasını, kullanıcı topluluğumuzun yardımı olmadan geliştiremeyeceğimizin farkındaydık. Bu nedenle 18 Haziran 2013 tarihinde, sizin için nelerin önemli olduğunu ve yeni gizlilik politikasında neleri görmek istediğinizi bulmak için topluluğa yönelik bir açık çağrı başlattık.

Bu veriler doğrultusunda ve kitlesel hükümet gözetim programları gibi ortaya çıkan yeni duyarlıkları göz önünde bulundurarak donatılan yeni bir gizlilik politikası için ilk taslak önerisini oluşturduk ve beş buçuk aylık bir çevrimiçi tartışmaya açtık.

Vikipedi: işbirliği ile yapılanma.

İstişare ederek gizlilik politikasını mükemmelleştirmek

Yeni gizlilik politikamızın ilk taslağı Wikimedia topluluğu tarafından ayrıntılı bir şekilde incelenmeye alındı ve hakkında canlı tartışmalar gerçekleştirildi. Aslında gizlilik politikasını, veri saklama kurallarını ve kamuya açık olmayan bilgilere erişim politikasını[1] çevreleyen tartışma, 195,000′in üzerinde kelimeye ulaştı ve 250′den çok belgede değişiklik yapılmasına vesile oldu. Ortaya çıkan, küresel Wikimedia topluluğunun değerlerini yansıtan çok daha güçlü bir politika oldu.

İstişare süreci hakkında daha çok bilgi ve yeni politika ile eskisi arasındaki farklılıklar için önceki yazımıza bakabilirsiniz.

Peki şimdi ne olacak?

Kurulun onayıyla, herkese yeni gizlilik politikasını incelemek için bir şans daha vermek için bir aylık duyuru sürecine başlayacağız. Duyuru sürecinin ardından politika resmen yürürlüğe girecek.

Gerçek wiki tarzıyla bir gizlilik politikası geliştirmemizle sonuçlanan bu açık ve ortak çalışmaya dayalı sürece katılan herkese teşekkür ederiz. Bu halet-i ruhiyeyle yeni gizlilik politikası, herkesin tekrar tekrar kullanabilmesi ve onu temel alarak yenilerini inşa edebilmesi için özgür bir lisansla korunmaktadır.

* Bu politikayı mümkün kılan tüm herkese içten teşekkürlerimizi sunmak istiyoruz. Bölümler arasındaki özverili çaba ile dünya çapındaki Wikimedia topluluğunun değerli katılımı ve geri bildirimleri olmasaydı bu politikayı oluşturamazdık. Bu süreç boyunca inanılmaz desteklerini esirgemeyen James Alexander, Heather Walls, Luis Villa, Roshni Patel, Toby Negrin, Megumi Yukie, Dario Taraborelli, Jorge Vargas ve Tiffany Li’ye özellikle teşekkürler.

  1. Kamuya Açık Olmayan Bilgilere Erişim Politikası da 25 Nisan 2014 tarihinde Güven Kurulu tarafından onaylanmıştır. Ancak lütfen unutmayın, bu politika altındaki bazı gereksinimler yalnızca bir kez, gerekli araçların inşasını tamamladığımızda ve bunları politikada belirtildiği gibi bu gereksinimlerden etkilenen topluluk üyelerine verdiğimizde tetiklenecektir.

Mία Πολιτική Προσωπικών Δεδομένων Δημιουργημένη με τον Wiki Τρόπο

Σώμα

Είμαστε στην ευχάριστη θέση να ανακοινώσουμε ότι στις 25 Απριλίου, 2014, το Διοικητικό Συμβούλιο του Ιδρύματος Wikimedia ενέκρινε μία νέα πολιτική προσωπικών δεδομένων. Η νέα πολιτική προσωπικών δεδομένων εξηγεί πώς συλλέγουμε, χρησιμοποιούμε και διαχειριζόμαστε την πληροφορία των πάνω από 20 εκατομμυρίων εγγεγραμένων χρηστών και 490 εκατομμύρια μηνιαίους μοναδικούς επισκέπτες στα εγχειρήματα της Wikimedia.

Αλλά η πολιτική δεν θα ήταν δυνατή χωρίς την υποστήριξη των χρηστών σαν και εσάς. Η νέα πολιτική προσωπικών δεδομένων είναι το αποτέλεσμα μιας διαβούλευσης με την κοινότητα που εκτείνεται πάνω από οκτώ μήνες.

Μια ανάγκη για αλλαγή

Στις αρχές του 2013, αναγνωρίσαμε ότι η πολιτική προσωπικών δεδομένων μας, που δεν είχε ανανεωθεί από το 2008, δεν λάμβανε υπόψιν μια πληθώρα από νέες τεχνολογίες ούτε παρείχε αρκετές λεπτομέρειες στους χρήστες για τον τρόπο που γινόταν χρήση των πληροφοριών τους. Αλλά ο τρόπος της Wikimedia είναι μοναδικός — εμείς ξέραμε ότι δεν θα μπορούσαμε να αναπτύξουμε μια πολιτική προσωπικών δεδομένων χωρίς την βοήθεια της ίδιας κοινότητας χρηστών που η πολιτική είχε ως σκοπό να προστατέψει. Έτσι, εμείς παρουσιάσαμε μία ανοιχτή πρόσκληση για δηλώσεις από την κοινότητα στις 18 Ιουνίου 2013, για να μάθουμε ποια ζητήματα ήταν ποιο σημαντικά για εσάς, και τι θα θέλατε να δείτε στην νέα πολιτική πολιτική προσωπικών δεδομένων.

Οπλισμένοι με αυτές τις δηλώσεις και λαμβάνοντας υπόψιν της ευαισθησίες που προκλήθηκαν από τις πρόσφατες αποκαλύψεις μαζικά κυβερνητικά προγράμματα παρακολούθησης, δημιουργήσαμε ένα αρχικό σχέδιο πρότασης για την νέα πολιτική προσωπικών δεδομένων και ανοίξαμε μια διαδικτυακή συζήτηση διάρκειας 5.5 μηνών.

Βικιπαίδεια: χτισμένη μέσω συνεργασίας.

Τελειοποιώντας την πολιτική προσωπικών δεδομένων μέσω διαβούλευσης

To αρχικό σχέδιο πρότασης της νέας πολιτικής προσωπικών δεδομένων υποβλήθηκε σε κριτική από την κοινότητα Wikimedia και πυροδότησε μια εμπνευσμένη συζήτηση. Πραγματικά, η συζήτηση γύρω από την πολιτική προσωπικών δεδομένων, τις κατευθύντριες γραμμές για την διατήρηση δεδομένων και την πολιτική πρόσβασης σε εμπιστευτικές πληροφορίες[1] ανήλθαν σε πάνω από 195.000 λέξεις και είχαν ως αποτέλεσμα πάνω από 250 αλλαγές στα έγγραφα. Αυτό που αναδύθηκε ήταν μια πολύ πιο δυνατή πολιτική που αντικατοπτρίζει τις αξίες της παγκόσμιας κοινότητας Wikimedia.

Για περισσότερες πληροφορίες περί της διαδικασίας διαβούλευσης και πώς η νέα πολιτική διαφέρει από την παλιά, παρακαλώ δείτε το προηγούμενό μας άρθρο.

Τι γίνεται τώρα?

Με την έγκριση του Συμβουλίου, θα ξεκινήσουμε μια περίοδο ειδοποιήσεων διάρκειας ενός μήνα, για να δώσουμε σε όλους την ευκαιρία να αξιολογήσουν την νέα πολιτική προσωπικών δεδομένων. Μετά την περίοδο ειδοποιήσεων, η πολιτική θα τεθεί σε ισχύ επισήμως.

Ευχαριστούμε όλους όσους συμμετείχαν σε αυτήν την ανοιχτή και συμμετοχική διαδικασία, που είχε ως αποτέλεσμα μια πολιτική προσωπικών δεδομένων που ήταν πραγματικά ανεπτυγμένη με τον wiki τρόπο. Σε αυτό το πνεύμα, η νέα πολιτική προσωπικών δεδομένων βρίσκεται υπό μια ελεύθερη άδεια χρήσης έτσι ώστε να μπορεί οποιοσδήποτε να τη χρησιμοποιήσει και να βασιστεί πάνω της όταν φτιάχνει τη δική του πολιτική προσωπικών δεδομένων.

Michelle Paulson, Νομικός Σύμβουλος* Geoff Brigham, Γενικός Σύμβουλος

* Θα θέλαμε να εκφράσουμε τις ειλικρινείς ευχαριστίες σε όλους όσους έκαναν αυτήν την πολιτική πραγματικότητα — δεν θα μπορούσαμε να φτιάξουμε αυτήν την πολιτική χωρίς μια πραγματικά διατμηματική προσπάθεια και την πολύτιμη συμμετοχή και ανάδραση της παγκόσμιας κοινότητας Wikimedia. Ειδικές ευχαριστίες προς James Alexander, Heather Walls, Luis Villa, Roshni Patel, Toby Negrin, Megumi Yukie, Dario Taraborelli, Jorge Vargas, και Tiffany Li για την απίστευτη υποστήριξη κατά τη διάρκεια της διαδικασίας.

  1. Η Πολιτική Πρόσβασης σε Εμπιστευτικές Πληροφορίες εγκρίθηκε και αυτή από το Διοικητικό Συμβούλιο στις 25 Απριλίου 2014. Σημειώστε, ωστόσο, ότι κάποιες προϋποθέσεις υπό αυτήν της πολιτική θα ενεργοποιηθούν εφόσον έχουμε ολοκληρώσει την δημιουργία των απαραίτητων εργαλείων, και έχουν δοθεί ειδοποιήσεις στα μέλη της κοινότητας που επηρεάζονται από αυτές τις προϋποθέσεις όπως ορίζεται από την πολιτική.

Lançando uma Política de Privacidade Feita da Maneira Wiki

É com muita alegria que anunciamos que no dia 25 de Abril de 2014, o Comitê de Administração da Wikimedia Foundation aprovou uma nova política de privacidade. A nova política de privacidade explica como nós recolhemos, usamos e gerimos as informações sobre os 20 milhões de utilizadores registrados e as 490 milhões de visitas únicas por mês aos projetos Wikimedia.

Mas estas novas politicas não seriam possíveis sem o apoio de utilizadores como você. As novas políticas de privacidade são o resultado das consultas feitas pela comunidade ao longo de oito meses.

A necessidade de uma mudança

No início de 2013, nós reconhecemos que a nossa política de privacidade, que não havia sido atualizada desde 2008, não não fazia referências a novas tecnologias nem fornecia suficientes detalhes aos nossos utilizadores de como sua informação seria manuseada. Mas a Wikimedia tem um jeito único — nós sabemos que não poderíamos desenvolver uma política de privacidade sem a ajuda do próprio usuário da comunidade, a quem a política de privacidade visa proteger. Então, lançamos um comunicado aberto, convocando a participação da comunidade no dia 18 de Junho de 2013 para descobrir quais eram suas maiores preocupações e o que gostariam de ver em uma nova política.

Armados com o comunicado e conscientes das recentes revelações de vários programas governamentais de vigilância em massa, criamos uma proposta inicial para a nova política de privacidade e abrimos uma discussão online que durou 5 meses e meio.

Wikipédia: construída por meio de colaboração.

Aperfeiçoar a política de privacidade por meio de consulta

Nossa proposta inicial da nova política de privacidade passou por revisão pela comunidade Wikimedia e logo iniciou-se um debate animado. De fato, a discussão a respeito da política de privacidade, diretrizes de retenção de informação, e a política de acesso à informação privada[1] totalizou mais de 195.000 palavras e resultou em mais de 250 mudanças nos documentos. O que surgiu foi uma política de privacidade muito mais forte, que reflete os valores da comunidade global Wikimedia.

Para obter mais informações sobre o processo de consulta e sobre as diferenças da nova política em relação à usada anteriormente, por favor consultem nossa publicação anterior.

O que acontece a partir de agora?

Com a aprovação da Administração, se iniciará um período de anúncio com duração de um mês para dar a todos outra oportunidade de rever a nova política. Logo após esse período, a política entrará oficialmente em vigor.

Agradecemos a todos aqueles que participaram neste processo aberto e colaborativo, o qual resultou numa política de privacidade que foi verdadeiramente desenvolvida à maneira wiki. Seguindo esse espírito, a nova política de privacidade é regida sob uma licença livre, de modo que qualquer um poderá reutilizá-la e desenvolver sua própria política com base nela.

* Gostaríamos de expressar nossos sinceros agradecimentos a todos aqueles que fizeram essa política possível — não poderíamos ter criado tal política sem um verdadeiro esforço de todos os departamentos e sem a valiosa participação e o retorno da comunidade global Wikimedia. Agradecimentos especiais vão para James Alexander, Heather Walls, Luis Villa, Roshni Patel, Toby Negrin, Megumi Yukie, Dario Taraborelli, Jorge Vargas, e a Tiffany Li pelo seu incrível apoio neste processo.

  1. A política de acesso à informação privada também foi aprovada pelo Comitê de Administradores no dia 25 de Abril de 2014. Porém, pedimos que notem que certos requisitos contidos nesta nova política somente entrarão em vigor quando terminarmos de criar as ferramentas necessárias e forem dados avisos aos membros da comunidade afetados por tais requisitos, conforme definido na política.

Announcing our new Executive Director: Lila Tretikov

On behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees I am delighted to announce that the new Executive Director of the Wikimedia Foundation will be Lila Tretikov. Lila is a widely respected Bay Area technology leader, most recently with SugarCRM.

Lila was born in the Soviet Union and moved to the United States as a teenager. She’s been working for technology companies, primarily in open source, in the Bay Area for the past 15 years. In 1999 she started her career at Sun Microsystems. Shortly afterwards she founded GrokDigital, a technology marketing company. She spent three years as senior director of development at Telespree, a company that provides cloud-based wireless data services for mobile carriers. For the past eight years, she was at SugarCRM, where she held positions of increasing responsibility as the organization grew, including being in charge of internal IT, marketing, customer support and professional services, engineering, and product development. She has a stellar reputation as a leader who is highly skilled, collaborative, open, passionate and curious.

The Executive Director Transition Team, chaired by me, has unanimously recommended Lila to the Board to be our next ED, and the Board has unanimously approved the recommendation. We believe she will be an excellent leader in the Wikimedia movement. She strikes us all as smart, brave and unpretentious, and we believe she has the skills the Foundation needs.

Lila is going to spend the next few weeks in learning-and-listening mode, and will take over the ED position on June 1, 2014. Her first priority will be to immerse herself in deepening her understanding of the Wikimedia projects.

I want to close this post with a heartfelt and deeply appreciative thanks to Sue Gardner, who has been the Executive Director of the Wikimedia Foundation for the past seven years. Sue’s leadership has built the Foundation into an effective, well-funded and well-managed organisation with integrity and a clear sense of purpose, and her steady and committed presence throughout the search process was integral in helping us come to this excellent result. We will be forever grateful for her leadership and vision, and I hope we can continue to rely on her support in the months and years ahead.

In June Sue will move into a new role as a special advisor to me and Lila. She’ll also take a well-earned holiday, and maybe even a bit of a wiki-break, before beginning to think about what she’s going to do next. Many of us will get a chance to see her in London, at Wikimania, in August.

The Wikimedia Foundation is delighted to have reached such a successful outcome to the search. My thanks to Lisa Grossman of m/Oppenheim for helping us with it, and I ask you to please join me in extending a warm welcome to Lila Tretikov, our new ED.

Jan-Bart de Vreede, Chair, Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees
