We at "Resources for the Disabled" consider personal privacy to be of the utmost importance. Therefore, we record only the bare minimum of personal identifiable information when registering for a membership acccount. The following is the only required information we need when registering for an account:
- Your Name, which you have the choice of entering either a real or false one.
- A Username, which is strictly your choice.
- An Email Address, which is used in the registration process and for administrative and personal contact.
- A Password, your choice for your benefit to access your account.
- Your IP Number, to identify your account for security.
We do not store any other personal information, except what you choose to publically display it in a forum post, or your profile, or elsewhere on the website. All content on the site is stored in a database and can be retrieved by other members through various forum functions, with the exception of your IP number and other information that you have designated as private. Please exercise caution when revealing personal information about yourself.
We will not sell or give away your name, email address or divulge your IP number to anyone unless directed to do so by a court of law with the proper legal documents authorizing to do so. Your username is publically displayed and only you know your password.
Cookies are a small data file that often includes an anonymous, unique token and are used by the "Resources for the Disabled" website to monitor your presence while visiting the site. These are sessional cookies. Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain only until you log out of the website or exit your web browser. Session cookies do not store any personal information, only a unique visitor ID number that may be used to ensure members are properly authenticated and can view site information.
Public profiles, forum posts and submitted site content may be indexed or stored by internet search engines. This means members' data, including any shared personal information, may come up in the search results by anyone on the internet. Please exercise caution when revealing personal information about yourself.
We cannot guarantee the identity of any other members with whom you may interact with while on or off the Site. Additionally, we cannot guarantee the authenticity of any data that any other member may provide about themselves. Again, exercise caution when revealing personal information about yourself.
Because of the value in sharing one’s experiences to help others, we hope that members feel comfortable enough to make their profiles and forum posts as public as possible, but at the same time, exercise caution when revealing personal information about themselves.
