User Guidelines

In a word, R-E-S-P-E-C-T. The tone here is friendly, supportive and constructive. We’re a global organization, and views vary. That works in your favor when you’re looking for insight and answers. We like to play nice.

How it works: Every subscriber sees every message. You’ll receive each post, and everyone who’s subscribed will receive yours.

Send your posts to privacylistserv@listbox.com with the topic as the subject and the question or comment in the body.

The Privacy List is moderated, so messages are reviewed before being posted. The IAPP retains the right to modify or block any messages that don’t meet our guidelines, such as:

  • Petitions, jokes, slander, chain letters, alerts, calls to action, resume posting, job announcements and personal ventures
  • Defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive or other illegal materials
  • Advertising
  • Political rants, endorsement or discussions
  • SPAM
  • Marketing services, business solicitations or commercial postings
