Personally Identifiable Information
We will not collect any personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, email address, credit card or other information, unless we explicitly request the information and you choose to provide it. We use your personal information to send you email alerts, respond to questions or requests and process online donations. If such information is collected, it may be shared with other closely aligned groups for the purposes of responding to any comments or questions you submit and to provide any follow-up information about our organizations and our issues. It also may be shared with an outside company to fulfill any request you have made to us, such as charging a donation to your credit card. We will not sell, rent, provide or disclose personally identifiable information to any commercial users or marketing firms.
We treat your name, city, state, and comments as public information. We may, for example, provide compilations of petitions, with your comments, to the Board of Supervisors, City Council, and other local decision-makers, without disclosing email addresses. We may also make your comments along with your city, and locality (City of Charlottesville or Albemarle) available to the press and public online. With your authorization, we will send individual e-mails in your name, and with your e-mail address as the return address, to the Board of Supervisors, City Council, and other local decision-makers.
Charlottesville Tomorrow also complies with the email policies required by our website hosting provider, iContact.

The addresses of the friends you are referring are not added to our lists and they will not be contacted again unless they opt-in to our communications.

Subscribers who support the organization through online credit card donations will have their credit card numbers stored in an encrypted form in our web site provider's (Donor Town Square) database only as required to fulfill financial transactions and will only display the last four digits of credit card numbers on member web pages or confirmation emails. Donor Town Square represents that it complies with applicable payment card industry data security standards.

Discussion Policy for the Charlottesville Tomorrow News Center
Charlottesville Tomorrow maintains two blogs on TypePad. The opinions reflected here, unless written by Charlottesville Tomorrow staff, may not be representative of the views of Charlottesville Tomorrow. We encourage the public to comment on these blogs. Anonymous comments, however, are not allowed. We want to encourage a civil discussion of growth and development issues, and our belief is that is best done by requiring people to put their first and last name on their own comments. Comments that include profanity or personal attacks or other inappropriate comments or material will be removed from the site. Entries submitted by someone other than the actual author will be removed.
