I have uploaded my file, what happens now?

  • The Johnstown Community Alerts web tool is enabled with a notification function which can alert all registered users of the new upload, however the post is reviewed by the website administrator before the notification email is sent. Inappropriate posts will be removed and an email will not be sent. If you discover that you may have uploaded a file incorrectly, please email and request removal.
  • There is a caption printed under the image/video which only displays the date and time of the upload. This date and time can be used to identify the post if a user wishes to make a report to An Garda Siochana.
  • Your privacy and confidentiality is ensured because your email address and username are not visible to the public or to registered users.
