Policies

I follow these policies here at GavinKnight.com:

Personal Views: apart from comments by readers the views expressed on GavinKnight.com are my personal views as published by Effectuate Ltd. You should not attribute them to other persons and/or organisations unless an article itself explicitly states that is appropriate.

Links & Attribution: I will give attribution when I knowingly reference someone else's content. The attribution will usually include a link to the quoted content and/or a more generic link to the author/s if I cannot find the content itself online.

Disclosures: I will declare conflicts of interest that I am aware of. Declaration will either be by way of a specific disclosure in the article itself, or by way of an ongoing general disclosure on the About page.

Updates: sometimes I will edit an article after it has been published - usually to provide further clarity or to correct errors. I will explicitly state how it has been updated (unless the edit is trivial).

Privacy: when reading or commenting you should not assume your identity is anonymous - even if you do not explicitly expose your identity. I use various tools to track and understand my audience but usually I will only use the collated audience data in aggregate - eg looking for trends (which I occasionally publish). I reserve the right to disclose what I know about you - but will usually only do so when compelled by a legal process.

Comments: I invite and welcome comments. I would prefer you comment in your own name, but you can comment under a pseudonym or anonymously if you prefer. I ask that you follow similar policies in your comments as I do in my articles - eg links, attribution, disclosures, etc. As the purpose of having comments is to facilitate a conversation I will often respond to comments publicly - either by way of a further comment on that post, or by way of a new post if I think that will be more useful to my wider audience. I might also respond to comments privately if that is more appropriate. I will delete comments that in my sole discretion I judge to be inappropriate for any reason. You retain ownership of your comments - Effectuate Ltd and I do not own them and expressly disclaim any and all liability that may result from them. By commenting on this site you agree that you retain all ownership rights in what you post here and that you will relieve us from any and all liability that may result from those postings. You grant Effectuate Ltd and I a license to post your comments. This license is worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, and royalty-free. You grant Effectuate Ltd and I the right to store, use, transmit, display, publish, reproduce, and distribute your comments in conjunction with this site.
