It is important to remember that any item that is published on a website will be cached by search engines so deleting or updating a page on our website does not remove all evidence of what was on that web page before the update or delete.
For this reason, it is important to take care with the information that is uploaded or added to web pages. We have a responsibility to not publish any personally identifiable information about any player or person connected with our organisation unless that person has authorised the release of that information.
General rules regarding what personally identifiable information can be published and when:

As much as possible, opinions should not be published on the website. This site is about providing facts for our players and families and it should be maintained as a repository of facts.
There will be occasions where BNJCA will provide a “position” on a particular topic. Where this is the case, the statement of position will be drafted and approved by the executive before being published.
Please take care with the information that you add to the site, including the reputation of the association and the personal information of all of our stakeholders.

In the left-hand column there is News, Competitions, Live Scores, Top Performers and the Calendar of Events.
In the right-hand column there are our sponsors logos and links to Twitter and Facebook.
One of the benefits of using the MyCricket website platform is the mobile-suitable layout. The image above right is the home page on a phone browser. The mobile layout displays the left-hand column first and then the right-hand column below and the layout is modified to suit the limited screen real estate available on mobile phones.
Most of the menu items that are selectable will direct the user to a HTML page.
