In short: ToffeeWeb fully respects your privacy
Please be assured that any information that you provide, particularly your e-mail or postal address, either through the submission of letters, e-mails, or by registering for ToffeeWeb Membership, or any data that is gathered automatically for information about the site's audience is for our own internal use only or to enable us to respond to your feedback, contribution or manage your Membership of the site.
You have our cast-iron guarantee that we will never pass on your details to a third party without your permission except in circumstances where we are required to do so for legal reasons based on content you yourself have posted on the site.
Third party websites
We may carry advertising or other content on our site that links to external websites and services of partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, etc. ToffeeWeb does not control the content or links that appear on these sites and is in no way responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from our site. The provision of a link to a third-party site does not constitute an endorsement of that entity in any way.
In addition, these sites or services, including their content and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies. Browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites which have a link to our site, is subject to that website's own terms and policies.
In short: We're an open forum
ToffeeWeb assumes an open-door policy with regard to submissions and contributions. This website is provided by fans for the fans which means that we provide a forum for you to air your views, whether we agree with them or not.
We always welcome reader responses that challenge any viewpoints espoused in the articles we publish and often we will counter such pieces with arguments of our own. Our line-up of columnists and contrbutors aims to provide a wide spectrum of viewpoints but, as is of often the case, it is critical content that gets seized upon as evidence of perceived or inherent bias.
Please note: Just because we publish an article does not necessarily mean we agree with the views of the author.
All materials published on ToffeeWeb may be subject to editorial review, including comments posted to articles. This usually comprises minor text editing and formatting for web layout, page presentation, and readability. Spelling, grammar, and other errors may be corrected during this process. Content will rarely be changed as part of the editorial process, unless the meaning is unclear or obscure, statements made expose us to liability, or where the content is either abusive or similarly deemed unacceptable conduct. We may add links to other websites or to other pages on ToffeeWeb, as we deem appropriate.
While we welcome all forms of contribution, we appreciate well-structured, informative, and interestingly written pieces dealing exclusively with Everton. The decision to publish, and the degree of editorial control exercised by ToffeeWeb.com, will be at our discretion. However, we do request that you read and abide by our Terms and Conditions of Use.

The Comments sections on the various ToffeeWeb article threads are not intended to be like typical Web discussion forums and message boards. Posting to ToffeeWeb is a privilege not a right and the following outlines our policies where reader comments are concerned.
ToffeeWeb provides current links to anything which we deem newsworthy or of potential interest to Evertonians. Where possible, a link is always provided to what we consider to be the primary source at the end of that item's article page. Where there is multiple coverage, we endeavour to link to the more reputable organ (e.g. the BBC). The purpose is to lead you to the source, particularly when there is not sufficient time for us to publish our own report.
Through the Everton News section, ToffeeWeb's archive of every news item we publish, all these news stories and links build into a unique long-term record of the recent history of Everton FC. Of course, we take no responsibility for content published on linked sites or their future availability, nor does a link necessarily constitute any form of endorsement or approval of that third-party website or the views contained in the linked article.
