      Description

      During the last few board meetings, the usage of Google Analytics to
      track the usage of our web sites was discussed. While this is not a
      problem per se, Google requires in its Terms and Conditions that all
      sites using it must post a privacy policy (to be exact, paragraph 7 of
      the Analytics Terms and Conditions at
      http://www.google.com/analytics/tos.html states that "You must post a
      privacy policy and that policy must provide notice of your use of a
      cookie that collects anonymous traffic data.")

      The legal-discuss group, together with the Jackrabbit PMC and a number
      of individuals has pursued this issue and drafted up a privacy policy
      for Jackrabbit, which is available at
      http://jackrabbit.apache.org/privacy-policy.html

      The board would like to thank you for this and appreciates the effort
      and diligence that went into it.

      If your PMC is collecting information through Google Analytics (ATM
      there are at least 18 PMCs using it; you know who you are), we expect
      you to set up a privacy policy along the lines of the Jackrabbit PMC and
      add a note to your next board report after you have done so.

      Thank you for your cooperation.

      For the Apache board
      Henning

        This was done awhile back, as I added a privacy policy page -
        http://openjpa.apache.org/privacy-policy.html
        and a link under the Overview menu which is present on the home page and any page that is sourced from the wiki.
