The service will resist legal requests for user information where reasonably possible

However, if we believe that a particular request for disclosure of a user's information is legally invalid or an abuse of the legal system and the affected user does not intend to oppose the disclosure themselves, we will try our best to fight it.
Wikipedia only discloses personal info by court order; attempts to notify users

*As a general principle, the access to, and retention of, personally
identifiable data in all projects should be minimal and should be used only
internally to serve the well-being of the projects. Occasionally, however,
the Foundation may receive a subpoena or other compulsory request from a
law-enforcement agency or a court or equivalent government body that
requests the disclosure of information about a registered user, and may be
compelled by law to comply with the request. In the event of such a legally
compulsory request, the Foundation will attempt to notify the affected user
within three business days after the arrival of such subpoena by sending a
notice by email to the email address (if any) that the affected user has
listed in his or her user preferences.*
