Taking part in the
Yes, it's the obligatory legal bit
First, a word about privacy
The only time we collect data about you - as an individual - is if you type it yourself into the Contact page and click Submit. Otherwise, we only know general and publicly-available information like the source IP address and the type of web browser you're using. We only use this to monitor site performance and overall visitor statistics. Even if you send personal information to us on purpose, we do not sell or rent it to anyone else and will not add you to any mailing lists unless you specifically agree to this.
Other than Google advertising cookies, we do not use any other cookies on this site at the current time.
If you have any queries about privacy on this site, please let us know via the Contact page.
Now, onto other matters...
This is the part of the page where we explain some of the things that
should be bleedin' obvious to any sensible individual, but some people
still complain about. So if your name is
Victor Meldrew, or you've
been injured in a accident
that wasn't your fault, read on...
1. This isn't an official guide to the carnival
This should be obvious, but we have to mention it. We know someone will have a moan if we don't.
2. There are errors in this web site
We're human. We make mistakes. So it's obvious that, somewhere in this web site, there will be mistakes. Be sensible. Don't take everything literally, and don't use this web site on it's own without checking out what other web sites have to say - you'll find a list of these on the Links page as well.
If you find an error, please let us know so that we might put it right
for other visitors. Just go to the Contact
page and send us a message. And no, we won't sell your e-mail address
to spammers or make it mandatory for you to provide your inside leg
measurement before clicking the "Send" button.
3. We're not judge and jury
Just because we say that something is so, or we believe it to be so, doesn't necessarily mean that it is always that way. Every day the carnival is different, and different people go to the carnival every day. Things change.
If we say that we disagree with something, or that we don't like something, that's our opinion. We express our personal views of the carnival on this web site. You're free to decide whether you agree or disagree. If there is a widely contentious issue at stake, or if you can show that we're just plain wrong, then we'll look at updating the web site. Otherwise, please respect the right to free speech.
4. Genuine e-mail welcome; others not
Flames and hate mail will only be responded to if we consider them to be particularly nasty - in which case we will forward them to ISPs and law enforcement for action.
Don't send spam. We don't read it. We always report it.
By all means, send Spam Fritters. We haven't found a way to receive them by e-mail, but we're sure there must be some folks working on it.
5. You're responsible for your own actions
If you hadn't read this site, you wouldn't have booked that flight to Venice that you missed because the taxi to the airport ran over your costume while trying to avoid next door's dog that ran out into the road to chase the delivery boy who was delivering a birthday present to that wierd woman at no. 26 who smells of cheese, and who only sends you a Christmas card every year because she's still guilty about that incident with the gerbil.
(Too bad. If a lawyer tells you it's our fault, you may wish to sue. The lawyer, that is. :*) )
