For contributors

The website relies on accurate, up to date information. Where possible, material should be reviewed by a knowledgeable person and referenced before submitting it for publication.

We recognise that there are divergent views on topics such as the move from the old town, Lake water level management, grazing in national parks etc. These differences are part of our community. LECC is an organisation which offers membership to all businesses and does not limit the fair presentation of different viewpoints through the website on contentious issues. However, the website is intended to promote the region and encourage community cohesion. Articles, listing content and items which we or our representatives maintaining this website believe to be distorted, or unnecessarily negative or divisive in tone will be rejected or edited.

Any individual, business or organisation submitting information for an event, business or other listing undertakes to notify us promptly in writing, of any changes to information published on the website.

Submissions for webpages, including blog articles, items and comments, must meet our and webhosting provider SuttonNet's standards for acceptable content. For webpages managed by other local organisations under agreement with us, submissions must also meet the relevant organisation's standards. Material which does not, in the view of those undertaking website maintenance, meet those standards will (at their discretion) be rejected, edited or returned to contributors for further editing.

In particular:

  1. We or our representative reserve the right to edit, re-arrange or restyle material as it sees fit, in order to best present information on the area and to maintain the readability, appearance, quality and functionality of the website. LECC and/or SuttonNet may reject or replace images which are not of suitable size or quality.
  2. We will not publish web content that, in its judgment, is unsuitable for publication and/or may be damaging to individuals or to the local community.
  3. SuttonNet requires the websites which it hosts to be fit for a child to read and/or view.

    1. not engaging in or encouraging illegal activity
