If you only read Donkey Kong Wiki, no more information is collected than is typically collected in server logs by web sites in general.
If you contribute to Donkey Kong Wiki, you are publishing every word you post publicly. If you write something, assume that it will be retained forever. This includes content pages, user pages and talk pages.
When you login you may select the "Remember me" check box to set a persistent cookie to store your user name and password, so you don't have to enter it more than once. You can remove the session ID cookie by clicking the "log out" link.
Collection of personal information
User information is stored on a server hosted by Nixihost.com. The only information that you need give is a username and password. The username does not need to be your real name. Therefore, any personal information you choose to give is not compulsory. No personal information should be given on the wiki by persons aged less than 13 years.
If you choose to enter a real name in your preferences, this will be publicly available. However, this field is optional, and there is no requirement for any user to give a real name. Users under 13 should not give their real name.
Information from our server logs may be stored and used to gather aggregate data about users, and used to determine whether the identity of one or more users is the same in cases of abuse. This data includes your IP address, and details about your browser.
Your browser must permit cookies to be set in order for you to log into Donkey Kong wiki. If you do not make an account on any wiki, there is no necessity to accept cookie requests from this site.
If anonymous edits were allowed, which they are not, edits by users who are not logged in will show the user's IP address in the page history of the article they edited, and also in other places on the site, including watchlists and recent changes, and in any external feeds made of such pages.
Links to other sites
Donkey Kong Wiki may contain links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by Donkey Kong Wiki. Please be aware that Donkey Kong Wiki is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.
Donkey Kong Wiki will not sell or share private information, such as email addresses, with third parties, unless you agree to release this information, or it is required by law to release the information.

Donkey Kong Wiki takes no responsibility for the content uploaded by third parties. Donkey Kong Wiki's staff will act to remove copyright violations in a timely manner following the receipt of a DMCA takedown request.
You should be aware that the Donkey Kong Wiki is editable by those with accounts, and, as such, may contain inappropriate content at any time.
Any use you make of content hosted by Donkey Kong Wiki must be in line with the terms of that wiki's license.
Any content you upload or post to Donkey Kong Wiki must be compatible with the relevant license, and not violate another person's intellectual property or infringe on any copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret, or other proprietary rights.

No content shall be added to Donkey Kong Wiki that is torturous, threatening, harmful, hateful, unlawful, libelous, defamatory, harassing, abusive, fraudulent, contains viruses, or is otherwise objectionable or potentially damaging, as reasonably determined by Donkey Kong Wiki. Please be aware that Donkey Kong Wiki may still contain content of an adult nature, or content that you find offensive.
Security of information
Donkey Kong Wiki makes no guarantee against unauthorized access to any information you provide. This information may be available to anyone with access to the servers.
Every time you visit a web page, you send a lot of information to the web server. Most web servers routinely maintain access logs with a portion of this information, which can be used to get an overall picture of what pages are popular, what other sites link to this one, and what web browsers people are using. It is not the intention of Donkey Kong Wiki to use this information to keep track of legitimate users.
These logs are used to produce the site statistics pages; the raw log data is not made public, and is normally discarded after about three weeks.
Here's a sample of what's logged for one page view:
Log data may be examined by server administrators in the course of solving technical problems and in tracking down badly-behaved web spiders that overwhelm the site. IP addresses of users, derived either from those logs or from records in the database, or through records in the database via the CheckUser feature are frequently used to correlate usernames and network addresses of edits in investigating abuse of the wiki, including the suspected use of malicious "sockpuppets" (duplicate accounts), vandalism, harassment of other users, or disruption of the wiki.
E-mail and IRC
E-mail: You may provide your e-mail address in your Preferences and enable other logged-in users to send email to you through the wiki. Your address will not be revealed to them unless you respond, or possibly if the email bounces.
If you do not provide an email address, you will not be able to reset your password if you forget it. However, you may contact one of Donkey Kong Wiki staff members to enter a new mail address in your preferences.
You can remove your email address from your preferences at any time to prevent it being used.
IRC channels are not officially part of Donkey Kong Wiki proper. By participating in an IRC channel, your IP address may be exposed to other participants. Different channels have different policies on whether logs may be published.
Data on users, such as the times at which they edited and the number of edits they have made are publicly available via "user contributions" lists, and in aggregated forms published by other users.

Except in those jurisdictions which do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties, Donkey Kong Wiki expressly disclaims all warranties of any kind and shall not be liable for any damages or losses whether directly or indirectly related to your use of this site or its content.
You agree to indemnify Donkey Kong Wiki, its staff and users from any liability relating to your use of this site, or its content.
