#3660 closed enhancement (fixed)

WordPress.org and Rosetta privacy pages mentions WordCamp Central’s DPO instead of w.org

Reported by: audrasjb Owned by: tellyworth
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: General Keywords: has-patch


URL: https://wordpress.org/about/privacy/ and on all Rosetta websites.

At the bottom of the page:

Please contact us if you have any questions about our privacy policy or information we hold about you by emailing dpo@….

I guess the email address should be a generic dpo@… or privacy@… for better understanding since DPO is an english and not universally understandable term.

At present, this is intentionally set to dpo@… because that is a current and valid email address. Since WordCamp.org shares logins with WordPress.org (as well as buddypress.org, bbpress.org, etc), then it's basically the same system.

Making an additional email address and forwarder is possible, but it would simply forward to the same people.

Creating a privacy@wordpress.org alias makes sense to me.

Replying to SergeyBiryukov:

Creating a privacy@wordpress.org alias makes sense to me.

I agree setting up an alias makes the most sense to me and would remove any confusion or concerns an end-user would have seeing a privacy email that's not under the same domain as the one they're raising a concern with.
Note: I've seen this question, as to why an @wordcamp.org email is being used, raised a few times now in #core-privacy.

Also looking at @audrasjb's patch 3660.diff I wonder if we protect the email address by removing it from the translation string with a printf.

@tellyworth is the new dpo@… email setup in HelpScout yet?

Also noting for this patch / when the texts are updated, we should use a %s placeholder to ensure that it doesn't get translated/altered.
