Privacy Statement for the FreeIPA Project

Scope of This Notice

This Privacy Statement is intended to describe the FreeIPA project's privacy practices and provide information about the choices you have regarding the ways in which information collected by the FreeIPA project is used and disclosed. For convenience, the FreeIPA project is referred to in this document as "FreeIPA".

Our Commitment to Privacy

At FreeIPA, your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we have provided this Statement explaining our information practices and the choices you can make about the way your personal information is collected, used and disclosed. To make this Statement easy to find, we have included a link it at the bottom of every page.

The Information We Collect

This Privacy Statement applies to all information collected by, or submitted to, FreeIPA; including personal data. "Personal data" is data that can be used to identify an individual. The FreeIPA project leverages Fedora Accounting System and complies with its privacy policy, all aspects of which apply here.

In addition, some of the pages on the FreeIPA wiki contain explicit attributions to content writers and might expose a person’s full name. Some pages also link to external resources that contain public information about contributors, such as personal blogs. This information is not collected, but rather voluntarily provided.

Publicly Available Personal Data

In keeping with the open nature and spirit of FreeIPA, some personal data attached to Fedora Accounting System accounts might be made public. See Fedora’s privacy policy for more details and how to limit exposure of this information.

Using (Processing) Your Personal Data

FreeIPA leverages Fedora Accounting System (FAS) and personal data the system provides. The unique login identifier from the FAS system is mapped to the internal FreeIPA project account ID. Additional information that might be copied from FAS into the internal database or entered manually is full name and email address. This data is used for the content attribution only.

Sharing Your Personal Data

FreeIPA project other than making some of you publicly available personal data used for attribution purposes does not explicitly share personal data with any third parties.

Receiving E-Mail

FreeIPA project does not have its own accounting system. FreeIPA wiki can be configured to send email notifications for edits and contributions. This is an opt in feature.

Cookies and Other Browser Information

Fedora’s privacy policy applies here.

Our Commitment to Data Security

FreeIPA trains its administrators on our privacy policy guidelines. and makes our privacy policy available to our partners. Our website uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, which encrypts your personal data when you send your personal information on our website. In addition, FreeIPA and its partners enter into confidentiality agreements which require that care and precautions be taken to prevent loss, misuse, or disclosure of your personal data.

Public Forums Reminder

FreeIPA keeps reference to the external resources such as blogs, mailing lists, message boards and publicly shared documents and makes them available to the FreeIPA community users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information. Exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal data. Although we value individual ideas and encourage free expression, FreeIPA reserves the right to take necessary action to preserve the integrity of these areas, such as removing any posting that is vulgar or inappropriate. It is in FreeIPA’s legitimate business interests to provide all users an accurate record of data and content provided in the public forums it maintains and uses; to maintain the integrity of that data and content for historical, scientific, and research purposes; and to provide an environment for the free exchange of ideas relevant and constructive to the development and propagation of open source software.
