The page history will show when your contribution or deletion was made, as well as your username (if you are signed in) or your IP address (if you are not signed in). We may use your public contributions, either aggregated with the public contributions of others or individually, to create new features or data-related products for you or to learn more about how the Songs of War Wiki is used.
Publicly Visible Information
Unless this Policy says otherwise, you should assume that information that you actively contribute to the Songs of War Wiki, including Personal Information, is publicly visible and can be found by search engines.

Please do not contribute any information that you are uncomfortable making permanently public, like revealing your real name or location in your contributions.
You should be aware that specific data made public by you or aggregated data that is made public by us can be used by anyone for analysis and to infer further information, such as which country a user is from, political affiliation and gender.
