Hi All,

We are happy to announce that the community consultations for the Privacy Policy draft and the Data Retention Guidelines have closed today. We are extremely appreciative of the many community members who have participated in this robust discussion since the opening of the consultations on 03 September 2013 and 09 January 2014, respectively. The consultations led to the creation of a transparent proposed Privacy Policy reflective of community values and our first-ever Data Retention Guidelines.

You can read more about the consultations and the next steps for the proposed Privacy Policy and Data Retention Guidelines on the Wikimedia blog.
