I'm not surprised about it. I do however disagree with the subversion of the
privacy policy that implementation of this bug would contribute to.

Like the privacy policy, the CheckUser policy page on Meta also makes no
mention of the fact that user-agent strings are stored.

The extension documentation does not mention it directly, but user-agent data
is visible in the example screenshots.

I'm pretty sure having the information buried in a technical documentation page
on another website doesn't fulfill the requirement of the privacy policy to
state what data is being retained and why.
