Changing your privacy settings
You can control which information in your member profile will appear to other members in the member directories, forum posts, and whether your member photo albums (if you have added photos) are visible to other members.
By default your initial privacy settings were defined by the software.
To change your initial privacy settings, click the Privacy tab within your member profile then click the Edit profile button.
To change the privacy level for an item, click the circle under the appropriate column to limit access to anybody, members only, or no one.
If you uncheck the Show profile to others option, you will not appear in the CCQG Member Directory. No members will know that you are a member, no one will be able to contact you. If you register for a program or use the Forum, you will be listed as Anonymous.
Once you are finished changing your privacy settings, click the Save button.
Setting your email preferences
From your member profile, you can choose whether you wish to receive emails from CCQG, and if so, which kinds of emails you want to receive. To set your email preferences, click the Email subscriptions tab within your member profile then click the Edit profile button.
You can now indicate whether you consent to receive emails from CCQG. If you agree to receive emails, you can then choose the type of message you want to receive.
There are three types of emails you can control:
· Program notifications – automatic emails such as program announcements (sent to people not yet registered) and program reminders (sent to registered attendees only)
· Manual email blasts – CCQG informational email blasts (Between Stitches is online, what's going on, timely information)
· Forum subscriptions – if you have already subscribed to discussion forum updates, you can change the frequency
When you first join, you will have program notifications and email blasts turned on. For forum subscriptions, you can also control how frequently you receive forum update notifications.
After you have made your choices, click Save.
The email settings above do not affect other automatic emails such as membership renewal reminders and invoices/receipts. Only administrators can disable those emails.
