Wikitrail.org cares about protecting your privacy.
We will not disclose your name, email address, or any other personally identifiable information to any third parties unless required to by law.
Your reviews and contributions to wikitrail.org will be visible to anyone who visits the site. This is important for transparency. When you add a review or edit a trail, your name is associated with the review or the edit. If another user goes to look at the change history of the trail, then they will be able to see your change and also the fact that you were the user who made the edit.
Your profile information (username, icon, bio and website) also will be visible for anyone to see. If you do not want this information to be visible, then you should leave these fields empty. Your username is a required field, however, so this field will necessarily be publicly-visible. If you're worried that you're username could be personally-identifiable, then you should choose a different, more-anonymous username.
We do not currently send any emails to our users. In the future, we may deliver functionality via email. However, this will always be an opt-in method of communication. There may also be exceptional circumstances where contacting you via email is required.
Our website uses Google Analytics to monitor site traffic. No personally-identifiable data is collected by google analytics.
If you have questions or comments about this policy and what it means, please don't hesitate to ask.
