<li>Any content you add or any change that you make to a Wikimedia Site will be publicly and permanently available.</li>
This is a disadvantage and terrible idea for users who added information they did not realize they should not have added to the site. This is especially a detriment for any minors (users under the age of 21) who use the service, whenever they add content which could affect them or hurt them.

changes-requested: I suggest to reframe this.

Wikipedia is a public encyclopedia, so it is normal that content is public and permanent. However, I agree it's a problem that the Privacy Policy does not say anything about how to deal with exceptional cases where people should have a right to have information related to them removed (e.g. a minor).

Incorrect - For over a decade there have been ways for individual edits, as well as entire articles, to be deleted. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Revision_deletion and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion

Yes, it's true, but it would be helpful if the privacy policy also explained that to remove information that they can be deleted and/or oversighted. At the moment, right now, even if edits are deleted or oversighted, they remain in the site's database FOR ETERNITY. And edits that are deleted are recoverable by any admin, while edits that are oversighted are recoverable only by a developer. Perhaps the privacy policy itself could mention about removing information by deleting and/or oversighting edits.
