Data Tracking Policy[edit]

This site runs a generic Mediawiki installation with most of the same extensions installed as at Wikipedia. Aside from the extensions used at Wikipedia, there is no tracking software aside from a Google tracking file for purposes of improving Google search results (Google Analytics is not used). Mediawiki itself saves cookies for the purposes of tracking users to prevent spam, keeping track of page visits, etc.

Defending Conservatism Encyclopedia Extensions[edit]

You can see which extensions are used on Defending Conservatism Encyclopedia at Special:Version. Those curious about the site's Mediawiki extensions can check Special:Version or visit our page at WikiApiary for more information. Basically, Defending Conservatism Encyclopedia is not taking any actions to track personal users, although we can't control how the Mediawiki software itself operates aside from selecting certain extensions-which again are listed at WikiApiary. The HitCounters extension does track visitors to each page just for the purposes of recording page visit counts.

Some Mediawiki extensions used because Wikipedia uses them include:

  • ApiFeatureUsage: Appears to track user data for purposes of preventing spam.
  • CheckUser: Tracks user data to prevent spam.
  • HitCounter: Tracks page visits for purposes of providing page visit statistics.

Also, XAnalytics has been disabled to avoid tracking site visitors.

No Selling Data[edit]

Defending Conservatism Encyclopedia does not sell any statistics or data about site visitors or users. Defending Conservatism Encyclopedia exists solely to inform the public for advocacy purposes.
