This policy outlines the information Dexid collects and how we use
that information. This policy applies only to Dexid (the “Site” or “Service”) and
services that are owned and operated by Dexid, Inc ("the Company").
Please be aware that when you follow a link to another site, this
information they collect from you. Please further note that in the
This policy may change from time to time.
The public and collaborative nature of the projects
All Projects of Dexid are collaboratively developed
by its users using the MediaWiki software. Anyone with Internet access
(and not otherwise restricted from doing so) may edit the publicly
editable pages of these sites with or without logging in as a
registered user. By doing this, editors create a published document,
and a public record of every word added, subtracted, or changed. This
is a public act, and editors are identified publicly as the author of
such changes. All contributions made, and all publicly
available information about those contributions, are irrevocably
licensed and may be freely copied, quoted, reused and adapted by third
parties with few restrictions.
User Accounts and Authorship
You are not required to register for an account or to provide any personal information to us in order to use the Service.
Anyone can edit without logging in with a username, in which case they
will be identified by network IP address. Users that do register are
identified by their chosen username. Users select a password, which is
confidential and used to verify the integrity of their account.
In order to sign up for a Dexid account, only your username, password, and email address are requested during sign-up. “Optional information” that we request you provide may include your first name, last name, birth date, and your gender. Any information you choose to provide may be made public.
Details of Data Retention
Dexid also may send one or more cookies - a small file that
lives in your web browser that helps the Service operate with full
functionality (such as keeping you logged into the service). Most web
browsers allow you to disable cookies, and you are welcome to continue
to use the Service if you choose to do so. However, some of the
Service’s features may not function properly if cookies are disabled.
Dexid’s user data is stored in the United States, and its
servers log some information whenever you access the Service;
information such as your IP address, the time of your visit, your
browser type and your browser's language setting.
Dexid collects all the information you provide when you modify
the content of a page or the Service (such as making edits, uploading
images, etc.) An indicator that you provided that information is left
on the History tab associated with the edited page or appropriate
special/image page; on the Recent Changes link, in the Community box on
the left side of the wiki pages, and in your user contributions.
