"Media General" is a trademark or registered trademark of Media General Communications, Inc., licensed for use by MEDIA GENERAL, and is protected by state and federal trademark laws.

Termination of Privileges

MEDIA GENERAL reserves the right to terminate your privilege of using all or any portion of the Web site if you breach any of these terms and conditions of use. If MEDIA GENERAL receives notice or otherwise discovers that you have posted material that infringes another party's copyright or trademark rights or violates another party's rights of privacy or publicity, MEDIA GENERAL may terminate your access to the Web site, including all of your privileges or accounts that you may have established in connection with the Web site.

Copyright Infringement

  • identification of the copyrighted work(s) that you believe is being infringed
  • identification of the infringing material and information sufficient for MEDIA GENERAL to locate the material
  • your statement of good faith belief that (a) the material infringes your copyrights, (b) the information provided in the notice is accurate and (c) under penalty of perjury, you are authorized to act for the copyright owner
  • your physical or electronic signature

 

Direct such notice to MEDIA GENERAL designated agent for receiving copyright infringement notices:

Media General Operations, Inc.
Attn: Amanda L. Glickman, Counsel
333 East Franklin Street
Richmond, Virginia 23219
phone: (804) 887-5006
Contact us via e-mail.

Upon receipt of notice complying with the above requirements, MEDIA GENERAL will act to remove infringing materials and, if applicable, send notice to the user that posted such materials on the Web site.

If MEDIA GENERAL removes materials posted by you as a user due to alleged copyright infringement, you may seek to have the materials reinstated by notifying MEDIA GENERAL's designated agent in writing and including the following information:

  • your full name, address and telephone number
  • your e-mail address
  • identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled, including its location before it was removed or disabled
  • your statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material
  • your statement consenting to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the district in which your address is located, or, if you reside outside of the United States, for the Eastern District of Virginia (where MEDIA GENERAL may be found), and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notice of copyright infringement or from such person's agent
  • your physical or electronic signature

 

Upon receipt of a notice meeting the above requirements, MEDIA GENERAL will send a copy of the notice to the copyright owner who initially claimed copyright infringement. Within 10 to 14 days following receipt of the notice, MEDIA GENERAL will replace or enable access to the removed material unless MEDIA GENERAL receives notice from the copyright owner who submitted the first notification that it has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the user that posted the materials from engaging in infringing activity. Please note that parties who misrepresent that materials are infringing or were removed by mistake or misidentification are subject to substantial civil liability to MEDIA GENERAL and/or the copyright owner or Web site user.

Respect the Intellectual Property Rights of Others. You may not post or transmit content belonging to any person or party other than yourself, without the prior written consent of such owner. Simply because material is available on the Internet does not mean it is in the public domain. The vast majority of materials on the Internet are protected by copyright and trademark laws. MEDIA GENERAL shall have the right, but not the obligation, to monitor any User Content areas of the Web site to determine compliance with these Terms and Conditions and any other operating rules that may be established by MEDIA GENERAL from time to time.

MEDIA GENERAL reserves the right to remove communications that fail to conform to these Terms and Conditions. In addition, MEDIA GENERAL reserves the right (but is not obligated) to delete any User Content posted on the MEDIA GENERAL site, regardless of whether such communications violate these Terms and Conditions.

MEDIA GENERAL's Right to Use User Content. MEDIA GENERAL reserves the right to record, re-purpose or re-publish User Content on its Web sites, newspapers, broadcast stations or other publishing forums. By posting User Content, you are granting to MEDIA GENERAL and its licensees a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, non-exclusive and irrevocable right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display any posting by you (in whole or in part) and/or to incorporate it in other works in any form, media or technology now known or hereafter developed.

Responsibility for User Content. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless MEDIA GENERAL and its officers, directors, affiliated companies, employees, agents, licensors and suppliers, from and against any and all claims, actions or demands, liabilities and settlements, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, resulting from, or alleged to result from, your use of any User-generated or Contributed Content or use by others of any User-generated or Contributed Content with respect to you, including, without limitation, any claim of libel, defamation, harassment, violation of rights of privacy or publicity, loss of service or infringement of intellectual property or other rights, or violation of these Terms and Conditions.

NOTE TO USERS. MEDIA GENERAL does not represent or guarantee the truthfulness, accuracy or reliability of any User Content or endorse any opinions expressed by such users. ANY RELIANCE UPON USER CONTENT IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Termination of Privileges

MEDIA GENERAL reserves the right to terminate your privilege of using all or any portion of the Web site if you breach any of these terms and conditions of use.

General

These Terms and Conditions (including the privacy policy attached hereto, which shall be deemed to be a part of these Terms and Conditions) constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and MEDIA GENERAL with respect to use of the Web site, superseding all prior or contemporaneous communications and/or proposals.

By continuing to use the Web site, you are agreeing to all changes made by MEDIA GENERAL. A printed version of these Terms and Conditions shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to use of the Web site to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.

Jurisdiction

The Web site is controlled and operated by MEDIA GENERAL from its principal office in the Commonwealth of Virginia, United States of America. MEDIA GENERAL makes no representation that materials on the Web site are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who choose to access the Web site from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. The Web site is not intended to subject MEDIA GENERAL to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country or territory other than the Commonwealth of Virginia and the United States of America.

MEDIA GENERAL PRIVACY POLICY

For each visitor to the Web site, MEDIA GENERAL's servers automatically collect information about which pages are visited and the domain name of visitors. This information is used for internal review, to tailor information to individual visitors and for Web site traffic audits. We also provide this information (as well as information from third-party market researchers) about our users on an aggregated, anonymous basis to our advertisers.

When you visit this Web site, MEDIA GENERAL, its third-party suppliers, and/or the Web sites of advertisers and merchants with whom MEDIA GENERAL has relationships may place one or more  "cookies" on the browser of your computer. A cookie is a small text file that itself does not contain any personally identifying information. A cookie may be used to tell when your computer has contacted the Web site. This information is used for editorial purposes and for other purposes such as delivery of features and advertisements, so MEDIA GENERAL, its third-party suppliers, and the Web Sites of advertisers and merchants with whom MEDIA GENERAL has relationships can customize delivery of information to you without compromising privacy. For example, cookies may be used to ensure that you will not see the same banner advertisement too often in a single session or to help display more relevant advertisements.  You may remove or block cookies through your browser settings.

MEDIA GENERAL may, in the course of providing services through its Web sites, ask you to disclose voluntarily certain information about yourself. This could include information that identifies you or your household. Any information in MEDIA GENERAL's possession solely as a result of your use of the Web site and that is associated with you or your household is considered "Personal Information." It consists of both information supplied by you (e.g. name, address, telephone number and e-mail address) and information collected about how you use the Web site (e.g. the fact that you have bought merchandise through the Web site). 'Personal Information' does not include statistical data about large numbers of users, none of whom are identifiable, nor does it include information that you have posted for public view on the Web site or otherwise publicly disclosed.

Like many other commercial sites, our site may utilize an electronic file called a Web beacon to count users who have visited a page or recognize users by accessing certain cookies. Our site, our third-party suppliers and/or the Web sites of advertisers and merchants with which we have a relationship may use cookies and Web beacons (a) for auditing purposes and to collect information from the Web sites of certain advertisers or merchants; (b) to report anonymous individual and/or aggregate information about our users from such advertisers or merchants and (c) to collect general internet usage information regarding users of this Web site. Aggregate information may include demographic and usage information. No personally identifiable information about you is shared with such advertisers or merchants. You may choose to opt-out by contacting us in accordance with the information set forth at the bottom of this policy.  To learn more about not having this information used by third parties, you may also click here http://www.networkadvertising.org/optout_nonppii.asp

 

MEDIA GENERAL uses Personal Information only for purposes necessary to provide the Web site and other products and services to you. These purposes are:

  • to process requests or orders placed with advertisers or merchants
  • to perform such normal business operations as billing, collecting and accounting
  • to personalize and publicize the Web site based on your interests, including making you aware of editorial features, advertisements and commercial items
  • to investigate complaints and to protect the Web site and MEDIA GENERAL, its readers and employees as provided by law or in case of emergency, as determined by legal counsel for MEDIA GENERAL
  • to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise MEDIA GENERAL's legal rights or defend against legal claims.

 

Except as necessary to process your requests or orders placed with advertisers or merchants featured on the Web site, MEDIA GENERAL does not rent, sell, barter or give away any lists containing Personal Information for use by any outside company. MEDIA GENERAL also respects the privacy of data on your personal computer and does not access, read, upload or store data contained in or derived from your private files without your authorization.

NewsRight

This Web site uses services provided by NewsRight, LLC. NewsRight is based in the United States and collects content usage information and may use cookies and/or clear GIFs in conjunction with this activity. Your continued readership of this site means you accept the privacy policy of NewsRight. Please refer to the NewsRight privacy policy at http://www.newsregistry.com/privacycenter/servicepolicy.aspx for further information.

Links

The MEDIA GENERAL site contains links to other sites. MEDIA GENERAL is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites, including any sites that may indicate a special relationship or partnership with MEDIA GENERAL (such as co-branded pages or "powered by" or "in cooperation with" relationships). MEDIA GENERAL does not disclose personally identifiable information or unique identifiers to those responsible for the linked sites. The linked sites, however, may collect personal information from you that is not subject to MEDIA GENERAL's control. To ensure protection of your privacy, always review the privacy policy of the sites you may visit by linking from the MEDIA GENERAL site.

Opt Out Procedures

You always may opt out of receiving future mailings or other information from MEDIA GENERAL. If the mailing does not have an e-mail cancellation form, send us an e-mail detailing the type of information that you no longer desire to receive.

Children's Privacy

The following additional terms, conditions and notices apply to use of the Web site by children under the age of 13 years whenever MEDIA GENERAL becomes aware that a user is in that age range:

  • Users under 13 years of age may not submit or post information on the Web site without the consent of the user's parent or legal guardian. Prior to collecting any personal information about a child under 13, MEDIA GENERAL makes reasonable efforts to obtain consent from the child's parent after informing the parent about the types of information MEDIA GENERAL will collect, how it will be used, and under what circumstances it will be disclosed.
  • Although MEDIA GENERAL will apply these children's terms and conditions whenever it becomes aware that a user who submits Personal Information is less than 13 years old, no method is foolproof. MEDIA GENERAL strongly encourages parents and guardians to supervise their children's online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers to help provide a child-friendly online environment. These tools also can prevent children from disclosing online their name, address, and other personal information without parental permission.
  • "Personal information" collected from children may include any of the information defined above as "Personal Information" with respect to general users of the Web site and may be used by MEDIA GENERAL for the same purposes. Except as necessary to process a child's requests or orders placed with advertisers or merchants featured on the Web site, MEDIA GENERAL does not rent, sell, barter or give away any lists containing a child's Personal Information for use by any outside company.
  • If a child enters a game, contest or other activity sponsored by MEDIA GENERAL on the Web site, the child may be required by MEDIA GENERAL to provide the minimum Personal Information reasonably necessary for the child to participate in such activity.
  • A child's parent or legal guardian may request MEDIA GENERAL to provide a description of the Personal Information that MEDIA GENERAL has collected from the child, as well as instruct MEDIA GENERAL to cease further use, maintenance and collection of Personal Information from the child.
  • If a child voluntarily discloses his or her name, e-mail address or other personally-identifying information on chat areas, bulletin boards or other forums or public posting areas, such disclosures may result in unsolicited messages from other parties.
