    Re: CPF email address privacy

    Lars,

    Rest assured that we are checking for possible breaches of the security. I have not, personally, seen any mention of the vbulletin software having security breaches that allow email addresses to be accessed. They are a very reputable company and would certainly not have patched the problem wihout notifying us.

    There is always the possibility that a moderator past or present has viewed your email address, but the possibility is very remote as its just plain tedious to find addresses that way. We will, nevertheless, look into the possibility as much as the software allows.

    I understand your concern, and appreciate the fact that you have brought it to our attention. You can certainly understand the points our moderators have made as well. If a man can get into FBI files using freeware available on the net, then either of our ends could have been compromised. Its a simple fact that both your security and ours is only as good as the software we use to protect it.

    We do not intend to share anyone's email address at any time and you can be comfortable in the fact that you have opened our eyes as to writing a privacy policy. We'll state clearly that CPF only collects email addresses to verify them when accepting new members so that we, as a forum, can avoid spam in as many ways as possible.

    Beyond that, the damage is done and I apologize if it was in any way our fault. You can read, in my words that I still have doubts, but an apology is necessary all the same.

    Now... I can help to change some of your info on your account but would prefer to discuss that via PM to maintain whatever accesses you choose while protecting your privacy. I will respond to your PM when I receive it

    Sincerely,
    Jeanie

    *Thread closed*


    Lars and I have come to an agreement - he will not access this thread again and so it is being closed. This message is especially for mods who will still have the ability to post here... DON'T! If you wish to continue the professional discussion you can find a place in the mod forum to do that.
