POLICIES OF THE WEBSITE COMMITTEE
Adopted: July 30, 2000
1. Basic Purpose and Policy-Making. The basic purpose of the website is to provide timely, useful information and news of interest to the residents of Cornwall and also for people who want to know about Cornwall. Policies of the website shall be established by action of the Website Committee from time to time.
2. Opportunity For Expression. In addition, the website is intended to provide an arena where residents of Cornwall can express themselves, either through artistic means (such as drawings, photos or other media), through presentations of their opinions in writing or in other forms. All submissions must be signed by the person or persons submitting them.
3. E-Mail Address Listing. To help Cornwall residents communicate electronically, the website will establish a section listing the names and e-mail addresses of Cornwall residents (year-round and weekend) who have such addresses. However, only those persons who agree to be included will be so listed.
4. Limitations On Expression. The Committee recognizes that there must be some reasonable limitation on information and opinions presented on the website, much as we might like it to be free to all comers and all opinions. Toward this end, we will not allow the following forms of expression on the website: (1) political material; (2) pornographic material; (3) commercial material such as advertising intended to sell goods and services other than a simple listing of such goods and services available from establishments in Cornwall or nearby areas commonly identified with Cornwall (for example, by zipcode or telephone prefix) ; (4) any personal attacks on individuals or groups of whatever type; or (5) other material determined by the Committee to be inappropriate or objectionable to the community.
5. Roles Of The Webmaster and Board. These policies shall be administered by the Webmaster. In the case of questionable material, the Webmaster shall consult with the Committee, whose decision shall be final.
