This privacy policy has been adapted with modifications from the WikiMedia Foundation.

General Scope

This policy covers personally identifiable information collected or stored by Stevens Institute of Technology (Stevens) on its servers in relation to the SEBoK. Stevens collects and retains the least amount of personally identifiable information needed to fulfill the BKCASE project's operational needs.

The public and collaborative nature of the project

This site has been collaboratively developed by its users using the MediaWiki software. Anyone with Internet access (and not otherwise restricted from doing so) may comment on the publicly editable pages of these sites. By doing this, commenters create a published document, and a public record of every word added, subtracted, or changed. This is a public act, and commenters are identified publicly as the authors of such changes. All contributions made to the project, and all publicly available information about those contributions, are irrevocably licensed and may be freely copied, quoted, reused and adapted by third parties with few restrictions.


Stevens believes that maintaining and preserving the privacy of user data is an important value. This Privacy Policy, together with other policies, resolutions, and actions by Stevens, represents a committed effort to safeguard the security of the limited user information that is collected and retained on our servers. Nevertheless, Stevens cannot guarantee that user information will remain private. We acknowledge that, in spite of our committed effort to protect private user information, determined individuals may still develop data-mining and other methods to uncover such information and disclose it. For this reason, Stevens can make no guarantee against unauthorized access to information provided in the course of participating in Projects or related communities.
