Subject Re: Website Privacy Policy ( was: Migrating the web forums at to Apache servers )
Date Mon, 08 Aug 2011 14:44:03 GMT
I suggest starting with the Jackrabbit project's policy, which many old 
threads show was discussed with the ASF Legal team:

A wide number of Apache projects use Google Analytics, which is fine in 
general as long as you're careful to comply with the relevant Analytics 
policies.  A few projects use other methods of tracking users; in those 
cases you should check with legal-discuss@ to see what sort of policy is 

In general, note that Apache has a very strong history of respecting 
user privacy - both of people who browse our websites, as well as our 
contributors (within the limits of ensuring we have clean IP to our 
projects!).  The main homepage doesn't have a privacy policy, 
mainly because we don't track anything about users there.

A number of other projects use Analytics on parts of their websites and 
not on other parts, so this isn't necessarily so unusual.  However I 
wouldn't be surprised if our future hosting of things like forums and 
content on the domain means that this project will need 
to have some more thorough privacy and other policies in the future.
