Our Anti-Spam Policy

The Kilkivan Community Gardens & Railway Markets Project, Inc. has a strict anti-spam policy.

 

Spam (unsolicited promotional email) has, sadly, become an everyday occurrence that must be endured by each and everyone. Not only does it:

 

§     affect millions of people around the world each day

§     waste enormous amounts of personal time, download time, bandwidth and email space, but

§     it is gradually eroding email usability as a leading communications medium

 

For this reason, the Kilkivan Community Gardens & Railway Markets Project, Inc. refuses to profit from or promote any form of Spam.

 

The Kilkivan Community Gardens & Railway Markets Project, Inc. will instantly terminate the link of anyone on our website who spams. We invite you to report any suspected instances of spam to us for immediate attention.

Cookies and Advertising

Visitor Email Inquiries

To help alleviate the spread of spam this website has instigated an anti-spam facility called “reCaptcha” so that when a visitor sends us an email through our website they must type in the 2 words required. If a visitor opts not to use this facility then by all means don’t. On the other hand, if a visitor uses this facility then that visitor is bound by the terms of this policy statement.

 

Off Line Email Inquiries

If a visitor to our website does not wish to avail themselves of our inbuilt email system but still wishes to contact the Project, then they may use the email address listed on our “Contact” page to do so, but that person must be aware that they are still bound to the principles laid out in this Privacy Statement.

 

Newsletter

If you subscribe to our newsletter mailing list you will only receive the current legitimate newsletter. If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we only ask for contact information such as name and email address. Out of respect for our users privacy we provide a way to “opt-out” of these communications. Further, if you elect to unsubscribe from our newsletter service your data will be destroyed when you do so.

 

Opt-In/Opt-Out

We send email only to people on our "opt-in" email lists. The "opt-in" approach requires that a person request to be included in an email list.

 

We always provide recipients of our email communications with an opportunity to "opt-out" or "unsubscribe" from receiving subsequent email content streams or other messages.
