BC-CHAT PRIVACY NOTICE from the Brown College Webmasters
This is a reminder and warning that all messages sent to the bc-chat mailing list are archived by and searchable within two services: UVa's mailing list service and Google's Google Group service. The latter can be reviewed here:

Please be mindful of the fact that messages you send to bc-chat can be easily found by any sufficiently motivated individual and can be stumbled across by just about anyone. Please also take note of the fact that bc-chat is a public mailing list. Submissions can be made by anyone and anyone can register to receive bc-chat e-mails and digests. Bc-chat is configured in this manner so that Brown College alumni and other individuals who are associated with Brown College in ways other than present residency can easily contribute to and benefit from the mailing list.

If you have questions or concerns about this, please feel free to e-mail the Brown College webmasters with your query or comment. Please bear in mind that it is unlikely that the public nature of bc-chat or its archives will change and that e-mail is, by nature, an insecure medium. If you would not be comfortable with a message you send to bc-chat appearing in a Google search alongside your e-mail address, it would probably be best not to send that message in the first place.

Sincerely, the Brown College webmasters
