Hi All,

I would like to direct your attention to a new blog post (available on
Meta<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Privacy_policy/Call_for_input_%282013%29>and
the Wikimedia
blog<https://blog.wikimedia.org/2013/06/18/input-on-wikimedia-foundation-privacy-policy/>)
about updating our current privacy policy.  Our privacy policy has not been
updated since 2008, and we believe it is time to revisit the policy to
ensure that it reflects where the Projects are today and where they have
the potential to go in the future.

It is important to us that the new policy reflects community values, so we
are asking for Wikimedia community input throughout this process.  We would
like to hear from
you<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Call_for_input_on_WMF_privacy_policy>over
the next month about the privacy issues that matter to you.  Once we
have completed a draft of the new privacy policy (with the input we receive
from you over the next month in mind), we will then open a lengthier
community consultation period so that you have the opportunity to review
the draft and provide more detailed feedback.

We ask you to read the blog post for more details and encourage you to
participate in this important process.  We request that you leave your
input on the Meta discussion
page<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Privacy_policy/Call_for_input_%282013%29>only,
so that everyone is equally aware of the topics being discussed and
has the opportunity to participate fully in the discussions that interest
them.

Many thanks,

Michelle Paulson
Legal Counsel

Note: We expect to have translations of this announcement in the next
couple of days.  We would like to ask the international Wikimedia community
to help translate the blog posting and feedback page (which are almost the
same) as well as people’s feedback given throughout the course of this
consultation period.
