This page documents a Wikidata policy.
It is a widely accepted standard that all editors should normally follow. All changes made to it (except for minor edits such as fixing typos) should reflect consensus. When in doubt, discuss your idea on the project chat
As we value the dignity of living people, the information that we store about them deserves special consideration. Instead of striving to provide all possible information about living people we strive to provide only information in whose veracity we have a high confidence and which doesn't violate a person's reasonable expectations of privacy. Statements that can reasonably be expected to be challenged should be supported by a reliable source. When exercising editorial judgment we should always consider the possibility of harm to living people.
