Meaning of "Arch Linux"

In Arch Linux, we describe "Arch Linux" as a software distribution, but in this document it's more like the aggregate of the related web services. Should we say it explicitly? -- Kynikos (talk) 18:04, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

Should we list exactly and comprehensively which services this policy covers? -- Kynikos (talk) 18:04, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

Arch Linux is the non-profit incorporated under Software in the Public Interest. Any and all services we provide would be subject to the policy. Jasonwryan (talk) 00:57, 4 March 2019 (UTC)

Legal liability

Who is legally responsible in case of violations? -- Kynikos (talk) 18:04, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

Arch Linux :) (see above) Jasonwryan (talk) 00:58, 4 March 2019 (UTC)

Jurisdiction

From User:Jasonwryan/Privacy Policy#Sharing your personal data, "As required by law": law of what country or countries? -- Kynikos (talk) 18:04, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

The country where Arch can be served, ie., US. Jasonwryan (talk) 19:51, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

Rights under GDPR

From User:Jasonwryan/Privacy Policy#Your rights under GDPR in the EEA:

"especially when you access the website": we have several web services, see also #Meaning of "Arch Linux", I wouldn't call it a "website". -- Kynikos (talk) 18:04, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

This will be solved in the Gitlab version. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 08:52, 25 October 2020 (UTC)

"subject to some limitations": should we expand on the limitations? -- Kynikos (talk) 18:04, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

No - that would be too exhaustive. Jasonwryan (talk) 19:53, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

"Please understand, however, the rights enumerated above are not absolute in all cases": what does "not absolute in all cases" mean? -- Kynikos (talk) 18:04, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

See above :) Jasonwryan (talk) 19:53, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

Notice of changes

User:Jasonwryan/Privacy Policy#Changes to this Privacy Policy: should we include an effective date in the document? Should we define how much of a notice will we give before "material changes" take effect? -- Kynikos (talk) 18:04, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

I had one in originally, and then thought that the wiki will automagically capture this anyway. Perhaps we should include Last Formal Revision? Or Last Major? Jasonwryan (talk) 19:54, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

Storage security

User:Jasonwryan/Privacy Policy#Our commitment to data security: should we describe also where and how securely personal data is stored, not only transferred from the clients? -- Kynikos (talk) 18:04, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

This will be improved in the Gitlab version. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 08:53, 25 October 2020 (UTC)

Sharing your personal data

In User:Jasonwryan/Privacy Policy#Sharing your personal data, the third point on "research activities" should explicitly mention anonymization or pseudonymization (assuming that's true of course). -- Lahwaacz (talk) 18:54, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

Superseded

Once https://gitlab.archlinux.org/archlinux/infrastructure/-/merge_requests/93 is merged , the official privacy policy will be https://gitlab.archlinux.org/archlinux/service-agreements/-/blob/master/privacy-policy.md.

We will need to:

  1. Create an interwiki prefix for https://gitlab.archlinux.org/archlinux/service-agreements/-/blob/master/ with forwarding enabled. Already done: archlinux-service-agreements:.
  2. Edit MediaWiki:Privacypage and change it to archlinux-service-agreements:privacy-policy.md.
  3. Edit ArchWiki:Privacy policy and redirect it to archlinux-service-agreements:privacy-policy.md: #redirect [[archlinux-service-agreements:privacy-policy.md]]

Since the Code of conduct is already redirected, I think we can do this as well. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 11:36, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
