Personally Identifiable Information
We do track how our visitors use this site so that we can see what people like and don't like. We also analyze and aggregate information about use patterns and share the aggregated data with our advertisers (for example, we keep track of how many users see and click on particular advertisements). We may also collect personal information about you via registration for contests, surveys and newsletters. You will receive e-mail messages only from The Inlander, and you will always have the opportunity to unsubscribe at any time. We will not, however, release your name, e-mail address or any other personal information to anyone else outside Inland Publications Inc. unless we have your consent, we are under a legal order to do so, or there is an emergency involving personal danger. This means that we will not provide our advertisers or anyone else outside Inland Publications, Inc. with any information specific to you unless we have your consent. Any employee or consultant who violates our privacy and security policies is subject to disciplinary action, including possible termination or prosecution.

Cookies are small text files that allow Websites to store and retrieve information about you from your computer system. Inland Publications, Inc. does serve cookies to track individual site usage for later aggregation, and also to manage browser compatibility. But we do not use cookies in order to retrieve any information from your computer other than information originally sent. We have no control over whether and how our advertisers use cookies that originate from their website.

Inland Publications, Inc. does not orient this site toward children or target them as an audience, nor does it screen them from using the site. Some of the material on this site is for mature audiences, and parents and guardians should take responsibility for monitoring their children's use. Inland Publications, Inc. does not collect or distribute information indicating whether a user is a child.

This site provides links and pointers to Websites maintained by other organizations. Inland Publications, Inc. provides these links as a convenience to users, but it does not operate, control or endorse such sites. Inland Publications, Inc. also disclaims any responsibility for the information on those sites and any products or services offered there, and cannot vouch for the privacy policies of such sites.

We allow comments on certain Inlander properties (Inlander Facebook, for example) in order to encourage intelligent discussion, criticism, education, and a sense of community among our readers.

The key word there is "intelligent." While we recognize that many otherwise dignified human beings unavoidably revert to their third-grade selves upon entering an anonymous forum, we expect better of our users. To that end...

We will remove submissions that contain any of the following (and may ban repeat offenders):

  • Potentially libelous statements.
  • Obscene, explicit, or racist language including hate speech.
  • Personal attacks, insults or threats. Engage the idea; don't attack the thinker.
  • Commercial product promotions.
  • Information taken from another source without permission.
  • Private personal information published without consent (though it is impossible to guarantee your complete anonymity while using this site).
  • Comments and hyperlinks unrelated to the topic of the forum. Stay on point. Don't hijack a comment thread for your own uses.
  • Excessive foul language.
  • Content that is a duplicate or repost of something you’ve already posted.
  • Comments that make obviously false or unsubstantiated allegations, or that purport to quote people or reports where the purported quote or facts are not publicly known.
  • ALL-CAPS RANTS. Use of all caps is online shouting, and it may result in removal of your comment.

Please try to keep your remarks brief. We may remove comments that are so long as to hijack the flow of conversation, and we will ban repeated commentators whose presence stifles conversation and dialogue.

Moreover, you shall not upload to, or distribute or otherwise publish on to the Services any libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, abusive, or otherwise illegal material.

Our rights
These examples do not attempt to be thorough or definitive. In fact, we reserve the right to remove or block any comment or commentator we find objectionable for whatever reason. Intelligent argument and good manners do count on our website and related properties, and free expression does not require us to suffer fools and boors. Any comments make (on Inlander properties, including third-party apps) may be edited, removed, modified, and you waive any rights you may have in having the material altered or changed in a manner not agreeable to you. The Inlander reserves the right to delete, move, or edit comments that it, in its sole discretion, deems abusive, defamatory, obscene, in violation of copyright or trademark laws, or otherwise unacceptable. Violations of any of the above terms are grounds for immediate and permanent suspension of access to the Inlander, related material or third-party apps, including any social media now known or hereinafter developed. We may change or modify these guidelines at any time.
