I noticed Michelle Paulson editing the "Cookie Statement" page, and it seemed kind of strange to me because I thought it more a technical and IT thing to edit. But Michelle is WMF Legal, right?
Is WMF doing something new (or newish, maybe I'm a little late in picking up on this) with cookies? Can someone describe to me what that is, in layman's terms? Is it about third-party marketing and working up personal profiles of editors and readers? What sort of new information is the WMF gathering, if it is, on editors and readers? Are there privacy concerns we should be worried about? Will the information gathered by the cookies be made available to the anonymous administrative "volunteers" the WMF grants access to the non-public information of editors? The so-called "sockpuppet investigators" and so forth? Here: https://wikimediafoundation.org/w/index.php?title=Cookie_statement&action=historysubmit&type=revision&diff=105722&oldid=104960.
