Privacy & Editorial Policies


Privacy Policy

ToffeeWeb fully respects your privacy. Please be assured that any information that you provide, particularly your e-mail or postal address, either through the submission of letters, e-mails, or by registering for ToffeeWeb Membership, or any data that is gathered automatically for information about the site's audience is for our own internal use only or to enable us to respond to your feedback or contribution or manage your Membership of the site. 

You have our cast-iron guarantee that we will never pass on your details to a third party without your permission except in circumstances where we are required to do so for legal reasons based on content you yourself have posted on the site.

Editorial Policy

We are often criticised for publishing articles from our contributors that espouse controversial opinions or are overtly critical  of Everton FC.  ToffeeWeb assumes an open-door policy with regard to submissions and contributions.  This website is provided by fans for the fans which means that we provide a forum for you to air your views, whether we agree with them or not.

We always welcome reader responses that challenge any viewpoints espoused in the articles we publish and often we will counter such pieces with arguments of our own. Our expanded line-up of columnists aims to provide a wider spectrum of viewpoints but, as is of often the case, it's critical content that gets seized upon as evidence of perceived or inherent bias.

Please note: Just because we publish an article does not necessarily mean we agree with the views of the author.

All materials published on ToffeeWeb may be subject to editorial review.  This usually comprises minor text editing and formatting for web layout, page presentation, and readability.  Spelling, grammar, and other errors may be corrected during this process.  Content will rarely be changed as part of the editorial process, unless the meaning is unclear or obscure, statements made expose us to liability, or where the content is either abusive or similarly deemed unacceptable conduct.  We may add links to other websites or to other pages on ToffeeWeb, as we deem appropriate. 

While we welcome all forms of contribution, we appreciate well-structured, informative, and interestingly written pieces dealing exclusively with Everton.  The decision to publish, and the degree of editorial control exercised by ToffeeWeb.com, will be at our discretion.  However, we do request that you read and abide by our Terms and Conditions of Use.

Comments Monitoring

Comments submitted by readers to articles or letters published on ToffeeWeb.com are not vetted or moderated at the time they are posted and go live on the site at the time they are submitted.

Reports that a posted comment is deemed offensive or otherwise unsuitable will be evaluated and the offending text removed at the earliest available opportunity.  Be aware, however, that this may not be for a period of hours depending on the time of day and the availability of the site owners.

Comments submitted to the site are the sole responsibility of the author and the site owners take no responsibility for them until or unless we receive a report of concern.

External Linking policy

ToffeeWeb provides current links to anything which we deem newsworthy or of potential interest to Evertonians. Where possible, a link is always provided to what we consider to be the primary source, both underneath the homepage news story and at the end of that item's article page. Where there is multiple coverage, we endeavour to link to the more reputable organ (e.g. the BBC).  The purpose is to lead you to the source, particularly when there is not sufficient time for us to publish our own report.

Through the Diary section, ToffeeWeb's archive of every news item we publish, all these news stories and links build into a unique long-term record of the recent history of Everton FC.  Of course, we take no responsibility for content publishes on linked sites or their future availability, nor does a link necessarily constitute any form of endorsement or approval of that third-party website.
