At the moment this website is actively hidden from search engines. However, it is not private. It was my intention to make some areas private, available only to Owners and residents, after an initial period of a week or two, but this was dependent on the response of Owners and residents to the website. However, to put it bluntly, there has been little public response to this website from Owners and residents — other than the fact that some of you are obviously checking in and reading occasionally, judging by the web server statistics — so there isn’t really anything here to protect from outside eyes at the moment. In short, if you’re not signing up and signing in, there are no privacy concerns. Should that change, this “privacy policy” (if you can call it that) will change too.

When you register you will be asked to provide a user name and email address. Your email address will not be spammed. (I live in the same building as you!) Once you log in using the password that is emailed to you (which you can change), you will see a profile page. You can fill in some, all or none of the available fields in your profile. However, this isn’t meant to be an anonymous website, so please at least use your real first name. (For example, if your name is Jane Doe, “JaneD” would be a good user name.) If you want to use “sparklybabe” or “superstud”, you’re on the wrong website! 🙂

Due to limitations inherent in the software used to run this website, I can’t keep the IP addresses of people who post comments — i.e., responses to blog posts — completely private. They are not displayed publicly, but Owners and residents who complete the sign-up process will be able to see them when they log in. However, there are two things to note about this:
