Page Specific Policies

These policies apply to specific pages on the site, however they generally run alongside the previously mentioned policies.

 

Contact Us Policy

The contact us feature is provided as a way to communicate with members of FRC238 without the need for an email client, thus allowing you to submit “anonymous” feedback or comments. Because the feature uses insecure communication methods (ie, email), there is no guarantee of private communication between you and your designated recipient. It is possible that other FRC238 members will be able to view your message for purposes of quality control or validating that the product is behaving as expected. We will try to respect privacy whenever possible. Further, it is possible that email communications may not reach the recipient for various reasons, such as email client filters, and FRC238 is not responsible if your message is not able to reach its designated recipient.
