Subject: Re: [Translators-l] New Privacy Policy
Dear translators, and dear foundation members,

I was just translating the new version of privacy policy to Persian, and I
noted that there is a wrong sentence in the privacy policy text. It says:
"If one saves a user name or password in one's browser, that information
will be saved for up to 30 days, and this information will be resent to the
server on every visit to the same Project."

The second part of the sentence, and the description about the 30 day
life-time, clarifies that the intent of the writers was to say that "if one
marks the checkbox in the login form to stay logged in". The phrase "if one
saves a user name or password in one's browser" (letting alone the incorrect
dictation of "username") is irrelevant; saving password "in one's browser"
is not limited to 30 days and has nothing to do with the logged-in cookies.

It would be great if the sentence was corrected as soon as possible as many
languages have not translated the new privacy policy yet.
