* Personal data on RootsChat *
« on: Tuesday 16 October 07 18:28 BST (UK) »
In general we do not permit personal details of living people to be published on RootsChat.
This includes photos. But on the other hand, we often like to 'see' who we are 'talking' to,
so there are a few exceptions:

ProfilesMembers may include as much or as little detail here, as they wish. 
The country of residence is often useful, for others to know whether or not to recommend visits to particular archives and Registry Offices.
The county / region, or even a town or city, may be helpful, but as many members wish to ensure their anonymity, the decision whether or not to enter these details is entirely voluntary.
.
AvatarsThe only living persons allowed in avatars are the members themselves.
Some proud parents and grandparents have included a child's picture.
We will make an exception for this too, for now.
We leave it to your discretion, to remove it when the child grows older.
.
Photo restoration and Dating All old photos, no modern ones.
.
Other topics Members may only publish a picture of themselves.
