Site and Privacy Policies

About this site…

This site is built using the free and extensible WordPress content management system and uses a variety of free or very inexpensive plugins to extend its base functionality. The money we have saved by using open source software whenever possible allows us to redirect our limited budget into better serving the needs of Rick’s constituents, and also to free up resources needed for him to function effectively in his role as critic in Alberta’s Official Opposition. We will continue to strive to use free or inexpensive open software solutions in place of costly, proprietary ones whenever possible.

E-mail policy…

We send our communications electronically so as to save both money and the environment by reducing unnecessary waste. The e-mail addresses collected through this site are not added to our database until they have been confirmed by a response e-mail to avoid false, or harrassing signups. Those e-mail addresses that are confirmed will only receive our non-periodic newsletter that chronicles Rick’s efforts on behalf of his constituents. We will not ever sell, loan, or give this list of addresses to anyone else to use for any reason. Each e-mail we send out contains an unsubscription link. If, at any time, you are unable to remove yourself from our mailing list, please e-mail email hidden; JavaScript is required to let us know and we’ll fix that for you immediately.

Conduct/communications policy…

We believe in demonstrating good manners to others and expect the same in return. Comments to our social media pages containing crass and vulgar content will be deleted immediately. E-mail communications submitted to us containing profanity will not receive anything beyond a cut-and-paste stock answer asking you to resubmit your concerns in a more friendly manner. We are open to new ideas and vigorous debate, but only so long as the debate is carried out in a polite and respectful fashion. In the words of Bill and Ted, let’s “be excellent to each other.”
