Privacy policy.png

Privacy is the right to be imperfect. It is the right to be human.[1]

Big text for a big issue.

With Jackson being a very local medium, we need to be highly respectful of personal privacy. Wikipedia describes privacy as

the ability of an individual or group to seclude themselves, or information about themselves, and thereby express themselves selectively.[2]. 

The boundaries and content of what is considered private differ among cultures and individuals, but there are common themes. When something is private to a person, it usually means that something is inherently special or sensitive to them. The domain of privacy partially overlaps security (confidentiality), which can include the concepts of appropriate use, as well as protection of information.

Blinding Search Engines[edit]

Sharing information on a neighborhood sites offers special consideration. Being part of the global Internet, one must consider a neighbor's willingness to share locally but also not desiring global exposition. Note: This issue is related to the Right To Be Forgotten (RTBF).[3]

Using the noindex meta tag in the page's HTML code might aide in this instance.

You can prevent a page from appearing in Google Search by including a noindex meta tag in the page's HTML code, or by returning a 'noindex' header in the HTTP request. When Googlebot next crawls that page and see the tag or header, Googlebot will drop that page entirely from Google Search results, regardless of whether other sites link to it.[4]

What Others Say[edit]

As per [5][edit]

Respect others' privacy: Because of privacy issues, it is against the rules of the board to post anyone's full name, address, or any other personal information (e.g. email address, phone number, etc.) without permission.  The only exceptions to this are for individuals are already public figures (e.g. celebrities, elected officials), or who openly use their names on the internet (e.g. a blogger who writes under her/his own name).
