The following article is part of WARFRAME Wiki's policy.
For any inquiries, please consult an Administrator or Moderator.

Data mining is the process of reverse engineering, decrypting, and/or decompiling a video game, its data, or related services in order to retrieve information on various game mechanics such as, in the case of WARFRAME, enemy armor values, weapon stats, Warframe stats, RNG drop tables, and etc. Most of the time, data mined information is more thorough and technical than what is presented to players within the game.

According to Warframe's End User License Agreement (EULA), all players are expected to agree that they "will not, under any circumstances, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise derive source code or game data from the Software or reduce the Software to a human-readable form, except to the extent that such actions are expressly permitted by applicable law"[1]. In addition, players may not "use any unauthorized third-party software that intercepts, “mines”, or otherwise collects information from, within or through the Software or Service, including without limitation, any software that reads areas of RAM used by the Software to store information about a character, in-game items or the Software environment; provided, however, that Digital Extremes may, in its sole discretion, allow the use of specified third party user interfaces"[2].

The WARFRAME Wiki will not "disclose any unused or pending features you may find in the Software, which are confidential trade secrets of DE."[3] In other words, the wiki will not present leaked/unreleased/unfinished content unless a member of Digital Extremes has explicitly stated its future release, through Livestreams or other official social media. Content that has been cancelled but has been previously announced to be released or content that has been removed from the game are still eligible to be article pages on the wiki (e.g. Solar Rail Conflict).

Most hard number data presented in this Wiki, such as the various game mechanics mentioned above, are all thoroughly tested by contributors in this Wiki, and their test methods and results can often be found in Category:Mechanics Research or Project:Research. Since there is no way to ensure every contributed data are user tested beforehand, all contributions, regardless whether they are data mined or user tested, will be treated as normal user contributions without any further dispute.

In conclusion, any contributed data will still be valued and accessible in this Wiki, but readers and editors are expected to utilize these information at their own risk, and understand that WARFRAME Wiki has no legal position to guarantee the accuracy and integrity of any data presented anywhere on this website.
