This Privacy Statement is intended to describe the Zanata Project's privacy practices and provide information about the choices you have regarding the ways in which information collected by the Zanata Project is used and disclosed. For convenience, the Zanata Project is referred to in this document as "Zanata".
At Zanata, your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we have provided this Statement explaining our information practices and the choices you can make about the way your personal information is collected, used and disclosed. To make this Statement easy to find, we have made it available on our website footer and at every location where personally-identifiable information may be requested.
This Privacy Statement applies to all information collected by or submitted to Zanata, including personal data. "Personal data" is data that can be used to identify an individual.
Zanata collects personal data when:
In keeping with the open nature and spirit of Zanata, some personal data
attached to Zanata accounts is made public by default.
Zanata uses the personal data you provide to:
We also use this personal data to provide you with information related to your account and the services you acquire from us, to better understand your needs and interests, to improve our service, to personalize communications, and to comply with or fulfill any contractual obligations to you. It is in Zanata’s legitimate business interests to provide you with the information, communications, and services you request; to create a public record of the data and content produced by Zanata's services; and to maintain the integrity of that data and content for historical, scientific, and research purposes.
Unless you consent, Zanata will never process or share the personal data you provide to us except as described below. Zanata may disclose your personal data to third parties under any of the following circumstances:
Zanata may send you email about your account, to inform you of important upcoming Zanata events (e.g. new releases), project or permissions change notifications, or in response to your questions. For your protection, Zanata may contact you in the event that we find an issue that requires your immediate attention. Zanata processes your personal data in these cases to fulfill and comply with its contractual obligations to you, to provide the services you have requested, and to ensure the security of your account.
Zanata's online services automatically capture IP addresses. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our servers, to administer our website, and to help ensure the security of your interaction with our services. Your IP address is used to help identify you and your location, in order to provide you data and content from our services as quickly as possible. It is in Zanata’s legitimate business interest to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of its services for all users.
Zanata often makes chat rooms, forums, mailing lists available to its users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information. Exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal data. Although we value individual ideas and encourage free expression, Zanata reserves the right to take necessary action to preserve the integrity of these areas, such as removing any posting that is vulgar or inappropriate. It is in Zanata’s legitimate business interests to provide all users an accurate record of data and content provided in the public forums it maintains and uses; to maintain the integrity of that data and content for historical, scientific, and research purposes; and to provide an environment for the free exchange of ideas relevant and constructive to the development and propagation of open source software.
Out of special concern for children's privacy, Zanata does not knowingly accept online personal information from children under the age of 13. Zanata does not knowingly allow children under the age of 13 to become registered members of our sites. Zanata does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information about children under 13.
In the event that Zanata ever decides to expand its intended site audience to include children under the age of 13, those specific web pages will, in accordance with the requirements of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), be clearly identified and provide an explicit privacy notice addressed to children under 13. In addition, Zanata will provide an appropriate mechanism to obtain parental approval, allow parents to subsequently make changes to or request removal of their children's personal information, and provide access to any other information as required by law.
This site contains links to other sites. Zanata does not control the information collection of sites that can be reached through links from [Community Website]. If you have questions about the data collection procedures of linked sites, please contact these sites directly.
Where the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 ("GDPR") applies to the processing of your personal data, especially when you access the website from a country in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), you have the following rights, subject to some limitations, against Zanata:
If you would like to exercise any of these rights, you may do so via our Contact Admin feature on Zanata's More page, or by email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please understand, however, the rights enumerated above are not absolute in all cases.
Where the GDPR applies, you also have the right to withdraw any consent you have given to uses of your personal data. If you wish to withdraw consent that you have previously provided to Zanata, you may do so via our Contact Admin feature. However, the withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
Zanata gives you the ability to access, modify or update your personal data at any time. You may log in and make changes to your login information (change your password), your contact information, your general preferences and your personalization settings. If necessary, you may also contact us and describe the changes you want made to the personal data you have previously provided using the Contact Admin feature.
If you wish to remove your personal data from Zanata, you may contact us using the Contact Admin feature and request that we remove this information from the Zanata Account System. Other locations where you may have used your personal data as an identifier (e.g. Bugzilla/Jira comments, list postings in the archives, wiki change history, and spec changelogs) will not be altered.
If you have any questions about any of these practices or Zanata's use of
your personal information, please feel free to contact us by email at
Zanata will work with you to resolve any concerns you may have about this Statement.
Zanata reserves the right to change this Privacy Statement from time to time. If we do make changes, the revised Privacy Statement will be posted on the main project’s website. A notice will be posted on our homepage for 30 days whenever this privacy statement is changed in a material way.
