Ownership of Website and Other Information

Just wanted to clarify a few things on the ownership of this website. It belongs to the Shenandoah Valley Amateur Radio Club, W4RKC. The domain registration uses the club's PO Box address and club name for ownership as does the Google Applications for Domains registration that we use to host the website, email address, calendar, and various other Google components with. It does currently have my telephone number associated with it, but it is represented only as a contact number, not as ownership. I (Jay, N2JCM) have no ownership over the website or the content, though I am happy to donate to the club any monetary costs associated with the running of the site and my time and effort in creating and maintaining the site.

Some of the content such as the information on the Current Propagation page is retained by the providers of that information to what extent their local laws allow them to. The article content such as for the New Ham Hub and Tech Talk is retained by the author (if there is a by-line) with whatever rights they grant the SVARC for publication. If I were to no longer be associated with the club (as in we had to move or for personal reasons), the club will keep the website and I'll do my best to teach someone else who is a member of the club how to maintain everything. Other club members may have edit privileges for certain areas of the website (especially the New Ham Hub and Tech Talk areas).
