Continual efforts are made to review and update the content of the AMAC Wiki.  However, AMAC cannot guarantee that all content is valid and accurate.
  
If you contribute to the AMACWiki, you are '''publishing''' every word you post publicly. If you write something, assume that it will be retained forever. This includes articles, user pages and talk pages. Some limited exceptions are described below.
+
Any of the trademarks, service marks, collective marks, design rights, personality rights or similar rights that are mentioned, used or cited on this site are the property of their respective owners.
 
+
== Publishing on the AMACWiki ==
+
 
+
Simply visiting the AMACWiki does not expose your identity publicly.
+
 
+
When you edit any page in the wiki, '''you are publishing a document'''. This is a public act, and you are identified publicly with that edit as its author. 
+
 
+
== Identification of an author ==
+
 
+
When you publish a page in the wiki, you must be logged in and you will be identified by your user name. This may be your real name or whatever user name you selected when you created your account.
+
 
+
== Cookies ==
+
 
+
The wiki will set a temporary session cookie (PHPSESSID) whenever you visit the site. If you do not intend to ever log in, you may deny this cookie, but you cannot log in without it. It will be deleted when you close your browser session.
+
 
+
More cookies may be set when you log in, to avoid typing in your user name (or optionally password) on your next visit. These last up to 30 days. You may clear these cookies after use if you are using a public machine and don't wish to expose your username to future users of the machine. (If so, clear the browser cache as well.)
+
 
+
== Passwords ==
+
 
+
User passwords are the only guarantee of the integrity of a user's edit history. All users are encouraged to select strong passwords and to never share them. No one shall knowingly expose the password of another user to public release either directly or indirectly.
+
 
+
== Sharing information with third parties ==
+
 
+
Except where otherwise specified, all text added to the AMACWiki is available for reuse.
+
 
+
The Alternative Media Access Center will not sell or share private information, such as email addresses, with third parties, unless you agree to release this information, or it is required by law to release the information.
+
 
+
== Security of information ==
+
 
+
AMAC makes no guarantee against unauthorized access to any information you provide. This information may be available to anyone with access to the servers.
+
 
+
== E-mail ==
+
 
+
You may provide your e-mail address in your Preferences and enable other logged-in users to send email to you through the wiki. Your address will not be revealed to them unless you respond, or possibly if the email bounces.
+
 
+
If you do not provide an email address, you will not be able to reset your password if you forget it.
+
 
+
You can remove your email address from your preferences at any time to prevent it being used.
+
 
+
== User data ==
+
 
+
Data on users, such as the times at which they edited and the number of edits they have made are publicly available via "user contributions" lists, and in aggregated forms published by other users.
+
 
+
== Removal of user accounts ==
+
 
+
Once created, user accounts will not be removed. It may be possible for a username to be changed.
+
 
+
== Deletion of content ==
+
 
+
Removing text from the AMACWiki does not permanently delete it. In normal articles, anyone can look at a previous version and see what was there. If an article is "deleted", any user with "administrator" access on the wiki, meaning almost anyone trusted not to abuse the deletion capability, can see what was deleted. Information can be permanently deleted by those people with access to the servers, but there is no guarantee this will happen except in response to legal action.
