Even though certain things are implied when it comes to The Red Zone Report and your usage of it, it’s best to spell things out loud and clear so that there aren’t any misunderstandings or anything of the like.
Here’s the skinny, I’ll keep it short and sweet:
1) It’s fine if you want to reprint anything from the site, content, videocasts, and otherwise, WITH proper credit.
2) I don’t mind a heated discussion when it comes to comments, but there are certain boundaries that you know you shouldn’t cross, especially in terms of respect and language (excessive cursing is a definite no).
3) Do keep those rules in mind, along with the fact that your usage of this site is a privilege and not a right, and if you don’t comply with those rules, your privileges can easily be revoked.
Now that’s out of the way, there are a few other things to go over as well.
There’s a good chance you won’t always agree with the views and opinions expressed in every article and comment written on the site. Disagreement are inevitable when you’ve got rabid sports fans with many different favorite teams and from many different areas, and while we don’t have full control of what people say, it’s our right – and our duty to the readers – to determine what is and isn’t proper and acceptable.
This site, as much fun as it is, is a business as well, and as such, we have a variety of ad spots on the site. While we do try to monitor which ads we run on The Red Zone Report with our readers in mind, we’re not responsible the content of the sites you go to after clicking on the ad links.
If you do provide your personal information (i.e., e-mail address) through comments, through e-mails to the site’s owner/writers, or by registering on the site, we may send you e-mails in regards to things like the comments that you’ve made on the site (not always a bad thing), site updates, partnerships, surveys, and more.
We greatly value your readership, and therefore your privacy is of the utmost importance to us.
From time to time, we do run contests, which in the event you win, you do have to send in info such as your address or phone number. That information is confidential and will not be given out to any third parties or used for any harmful purposes.
When it comes to comments on the site, if you leave your e-mail address in the comments, we will not use your e-mail address for spam or any third-party offers related to the site or the site’s sponsors.
On the same token, if you send e-mails to the site publisher or to any of the site’s writers, your e-mail addresses will not be used for spam or any of the purposes mentioned above.
Also, from time to time, we may run surveys for the purpose of learning more about our readers to share with potential advertisers and to learn more about what the readers would like to see on the site, and any personal information, if we do collect any in those surveys, is confidential and will not be used harmfully.
While our site caters to those of all ages, protecting children’s privacy is also of the utmost importance. Because of that, we will never collect any information from those we know are under 13, and no part of our website is designed to attract anyone underage.
If you feel at all uncomfortable about giving any personal information, you are not obligated to do so.
We promise to follow these policies to a T, and if you have any questions, concerns, or comments, feel free to e-mail The Red Zone Report publisher Eddie Griffin at eddie [at] theredzonereport [dot] com.
