The publishers of this web site
greatly appreciate the cooperation and participation of our fellow researchers and of
others who provide us with their family information.
As a result, we will adhere to the following guidelines for the Culpepper
Connections! web site:
Living Person Data. Within our Family
as of our May 2014 update, we decided to quit publishing any names or details about living individuals.
However, we received so many complaints about dropping the living names,
effective with the next update (October 2014), we will restore
those names. If you prefer that your name and those of your descendants not
be shown, please let us know and they will be suppressed.
Presumption of Death. For purposes of administering this policy, if we
do not know conclusively whether a person is living or deceased, all persons born less
than 95 years ago are presumed to be living, and all persons born more than 95 years ago
are presumed deceased. (We would appreciate being notified of any instances where our
presumption is wrong.)
protected. It is standard procedure for most
researchers, including the publishers of this site, to record in our descendancy database
(family tree) the e-mail
addresses or other contact information for personal sources of any information that we
record in our databases. However, in order to protect the privacy of our sources
e-mail addresses are not shown directly, but a web user can use a link to
send an e-mail message.
E-mail Messages are Private. In general, we will rely on the RootsWeb
Culpepper-L archives, and other public web archives, as the repository for all e-mail
communications that would be of general interest to Culpepper researchers. However, we may
occasionally print excerpts from e-mail messages that we believe will be useful to be
found directly on our site. Also, we will not
publish on Culpepper Connections!, "flames", criticisms, or anything
that we think might be embarrassing to someone.
Public Information on
the web may be republished. The foregoing policies not
withstanding, we may publish information from public databases, news articles,
obituaries or other textual
information that has been made publicly available. However, if such
information has been published about you or your family, and you do not wish
it to appear on our website, we will remove it upon request.
Privacy. We will not display the names of our DNA project
participants. Also see FamilyTreeDNA's Privacy Statement.
Problem Notification. However diligent we may be in adhering to our
privacy guidelines, we may inadvertently let something slip through. If we have published
something that you don't feel we should have, we urge you to immediately
us so we can correct the breach.
