We may collect the following information:
We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. You may request details of personal information which we hold about you under the Data Protection Act 1998. If you would like a copy of the information held on you please contact us. If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please email us as soon as possible. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.
We enjoy interacting with you, gladly welcome your comments, and from time to time, will even request them. To ensure that comments enhance rather than detract from the blog, we’ve created a formal comment policy.
In order to maintain the integrity of the blog and its content, all comments, trackbacks, and pingbacks made to Bridge to Biltmore are moderated. We work to review and approve comments quickly, but please forgive us if your comment does not appear right away.
Anyone is free to disagree with us, or with other commenters, as long as it is done politely. Comments that take a belligerent approach are at risk of being deleted. Please avoid harsh language and the use of profanity. Flaming or threatening language will not be posted. Nor will we post anything we deem to be a personal attack.
Please approach this blog with the civility you would bring to any peaceful public forum. Don’t post anything here that you wouldn’t say face-to-face to an affable fellow citizen in public.
We will not post comments that seem to only or predominantly serve the purpose of self- or business-promotion.
We reserve the right to edit comments prior to posting. Blatant spelling and grammatical errors may be edited, and significant edits will be notated at the end of the comment. At no time will we attempt to alter the core meaning of a comment. To minimize editing, please write carefully and concisely.
By posting your comments to Bridge to Biltmore you are granting us the right, in perpetuity, to use, alter, and/or display them as we see fit. Once your comment is submitted, remember, your words are immortalized.
Please use a valid e-mail address when commenting. It will not be displayed unless you type it in the body of your comment (which will usually be edited out). You will not be subscribed to any mailing list by leaving a comment, nor will your e-mail address ever be sold to a third party.
If you use an invalid e-mail address or one that requires any type of human interaction to confirm we’re not spammers, your comment may be deleted.
We take comment spam seriously and all IP addresses used for spamming will be reported to the internet blacklists, the ISPs/hosts for the offending domain will be notified, and the owner of the IP block will be notified of the problem. While comment spam continues to proliferate, we will do our part to help combat it.
(From time to time, these policies may be updated, so please check back every so often.)
