Website Policies on Confidentiality

To help improve this website, I encourage your feedback via email and the "Comments" box at the bottom of each page. Your correspondence will normally be held as confidential, and I will not publish your name, email address or comments without your permission. In fact, I will not normally reveal to anyone that the communication even took place.

There are some exceptions and special circumstances, however. They are encoded in the Campbell Revised Statutes (CRS), Section 1.

Section 1: Confidentiality and Use of Submissions

CRS 001.010 — "Confidential" defined. "Confidential" means that a certain communication is intended only for the explicit recipient and not for any other party. The word implies that even the existence of the communication is secret and should be known only to the sender and the receiver. However, "Confidential" does not necessarily imply that the information conveyed in the communication is secret. If you tell me something "in confidence" you can reasonably expect me to follow up on this information, seek to confirm it from another source and use it as I see fit (in the absence of any other agreement between us). "Confidential" means only that I will not reveal that it was you who gave me the information. "Confidential" is roughly synonymous with "off the record" and "not for attribution."

CRS 001.020 — "Normally Confidential" defined. "Normally Confidential" means that a certain communication is confidential by default, although there may be reasonable exceptions.

CRS 001.030 — Court hearings are not confidential. Unless specifically restricted by law, all proceedings in a courtroom, while being recorded for the record, are not confidential. In my writings, I may report on anything that takes place during these hearings, except that....

CRS 001.040 — Courtroom conversations between hearings may be confidential. Any conversations or events in a courtroom, taking place outside of any formal hearings, are subject to the same rules of confidentiality as those taking place in public areas outside of the courtroom (See CRS 001.050).

CRS 001.050 — Conversations in public places are not confidential, with exceptions.

CRS 001.060 — Implied confidentiality. Any conversation between myself and another party who knows me is normally considered confidential regardless of the venue. "Knows me" is defined as anyone who has seen my website. In other words, if you and I have a conversation anywhere, and I have reason to believe that you have seen my website, then I will normally hold the conversation as confidential, subject only to the exceptions below.

CRS 001.070 — Email is confidential. Any email I receive is normally confidential. If you send me an email, you can expect that I will not reveal it to anyone, forward it to anyone or publish it on my website without your permission. I will also not normally reveal to anyone that the communication took place. However, this confidentiality is subject to the same restrictions as CRS 001.060 (a+b).

CRS 001.080 — Website comments may be confidential. If you send me a comment via the comment box on my website, these rules apply...

CRS 001.090 — Soapbox section. The Soapbox section of the website is the normal location where I will post comments by readers. Once you send me a comment and it is posted to the website, it is not normally changeable. Should you change your mind and ask me to remove it, I may comply, but I cannot guarantee this. I will not normally allow you to otherwise change your comments unless you object to some editing that I did to them.

CRS 001.100 — Website comments are a public record. Once your comment has been posted to the website with your permission, we shall consider it a non-copyrighted part of the public record. I and other parties may choose to reprint your comment elsewhere, such as in a book, without asking your permission.

CRS 001.110 — "Not confidential" does not imply publication. The fact that I have deemed a communication "not confidential" does not imply that I will publish it. I will still use my discretion.

CRS 001.120 — Published information remains negotiable. Even after information is published on my website, it remains negotiable. I will correct any errors that are brought to my attention, and, upon request, I will remove any information that is improperly used.

Because this website has been frozen, reader comments can no longer be added to this page (effective 8/3/09). If you feel that an existing comment is damaging or inappropriate, feel free to contact the webmaster regarding its removal: familycourtguy (at)
