If any of the following policies need further clarification, you are invited to contact us.
Advertisement: We do not run advertisements, paid or otherwise.
Comments: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Real Hartford is not Congress. Responsible comments are welcome. Those which do not fall into that category, at our discretion, may not be published. There is nothing stopping you from starting your own site or blog, or publishing your opinions on an existing site like Facebook.
Guest Writers: If interested, send a resume and a short note about what exactly you have in mind. This work would be unpaid, but we are looking at ways to ensure that in the future, writers would receive a small stipend because work has value.
Information Removal Policy: As a rule, we do not remove information from the site simply because someone finds the truth to be upsetting or inconvenient to them.
If you feel you have been misquoted, you are welcome to contact me with the correction.
Internship: Unpaid internships may be available on a case-by-case basis for a period no shorter than one semester. If interested, please send a copy of your resume and a short message of how you would like to be involved.
Media Removal Policy: As a rule, once the photograph or video is published, it will remain on the online news site.
We do not engage in paparazzi-like maneuvers to obtain photographs. When we take photographs, our cameras are visible. We do not use close-up shots of children without the permission of their parents/guardians. Most photographs of people are taken at public events such as forums, parades, art openings, and the like. When a person appears in public s/he assumes the risk of having his or her photograph taken.
A private individual has a right to more privacy than a public figure; children are understood to have an even greater degree of privacy. Those who are seeking public attention, such as politicians, aspiring politicians, and celebrities, understand that they lose a degree of privacy; this is especially true when they participate in events in which they place a central role. Private individuals wishing the removal of their images taken at private gatherings may submit such requests by email. We will respond to inform you whether your request as been accepted or declined.
Reviews: We will review restaurants, venues, books, and events. Being granted a press pass to an event or venue does not guarantee positive press – or any press, for that matter – but we do appreciate this gesture. As much as we like the price of free, we do not accept free meals at restaurants unless they are being offered to all patrons.
Rights and Reproductions:
Content (text, title, images, logo, photographs) on this site may not be republished without prior permission. Doing so is considered plagiarism. Photos may not be republished without prior permission. All material, unless noted otherwise, belongs to Kerri Ana Provost.
It may be fair to ask someone still in college to work for free, but this ain’t my first rodeo and “getting exposure” does not pay the mortgage.
Subjects of Interviews/Articles: We do not show articles to subjects in advance because this practice compromises integrity; in other words, no, we will not change the wording because you do not like how you are represented.
