Mailing List and email Policies
By signing in to the Logbook you make yourself eligible to be placed on the 505th TCG mailing list. Please understand that this is a private list and will not be shared with anyone. The purpose for the mailing list is as follows:
If you don't want to receive emails about the site, please send me a message to that effect and your name will be taken off the list.
Occasionally I receive requests for email addresses from folks searching for other folks. In order to protect the privacy of the viewers, I will not pass on a persons email address. I will normally suggest that the review the entries in the LogBook to see if the individual sought is there. In the event that I happen to have the correct address and the person sought is either not in the logbook or the entry there is incorrect, I will forward the request to the individual sought, thus protecting the receivers privacy.
Pictures and Stories
The thing that makes this the most interesting and, for me at least, what makes history come alive, is the pictures. It is my intention to create an interesting collection of peoples photographs on this website. Having said that, please understand that I can't put everything on here that is submitted. I will try to be fair to the submitters, but I want to be fair to the viewers too. Pictures of your girlfriends or a plane taking off from 1/2 mile away are probably not going to be of general interest.
If you have to mail pictures, please send copies and not the originals or negatives. If you want the copies back, include a self addressed envelope. I really not comfortable having responsibility for your treasures or for entrusting them to the Postal Service or whatever, so scanning is best.
Try to keep the stories clean and non-inflammatory. I don't intend to be a censor but I also want this place to be a place where all feel welcome. I know we all had experiences with some folks that still make us scratch our heads. Leave those stories for reminiscences over a beer or your memoirs.
I, of course reserve the right to not put anything on the site that I don't think is appropriate and am the final authority on all items displayed on the site.
If you want any of your stuff to be protected by copyright, ya gotta tell me. If I don't see anything from you that says you want it protected, I assume that it will fall under the general protection of the copyrights I claim for this site. This doesn't mean I want the rights to your stuff. If it's yours it yours. What it means is that I claim a copyright to the materials on the site that should protect your stuff from being ripped off by someone else. I have no intention to seek monetary gain from this and should I ever decide to write a book or something and want to use your materials, I'll get in touch. Sure wish we didn't have to get into all this, but sooner or later it comes up so I'm trying to articulate how I feel about it, what I've done, and what I intend to do up front.
