Communications and privacy

Arbitrators usually seek to treat your communications, including emails, as private when possible. However, we cannot guarantee against public disclosure for a number of reasons, including potential security limitations. Accordingly, you should not disclose sensitive personal information in your communications with us.

Once received, your communications may be shared with committee members and - in some limited cases - with third parties to assist in resolving issues or for other purposes. Your communications may be kept for an undetermined period of time for archival or other reasons.

You should also know that even your return email address may lead to revealing your real-life identity. Many people create anonymised email accounts - for example,, and so on - specially for Wikipedia use. Further information about safeguarding your privacy can be found at Wikipedia:On privacy, confidentiality and discretion and Wikipedia:How to not get outed on Wikipedia.
