1. THE PURPOSE OF THIS WEBSITE

Sandbridge Beer Club members share two passions -- Sandbridge Beach and beer.

Everything you need to know about setting up a profile to gain access to the rest of our club website is on this page. Please note that to become a member you must be 21 years of age or older.  If you have questions, please Contact Us.

 

2. PRIVACY NOTICE

Return to Menu

All contact information (address, phone number, e-mail address) that you enter into this website will be kept confidential. The commercial host of this web site, ClassCreator.com, has a strict policy that no personal information will ever be shared or sold to other sites.  The Sandbridge Beer Club itself makes that same promise to you.

Your contact information is private; your street address, e-mail address, and phone number cannot be seen by other members. Each club member has the ability to limit the visibility of his or her profile to only fellow members by clicking on the appropriate answer in the Profile Visibility section during profile setup. If you do not opt for privacy on this line your profile can be viewed by non members such as your friends or family, but also note your profile will be fully indexable by major search engines.

Finding your member Profile page by searching Google or other major search engines:

  • If you are signed on to the site and restricted your profile to only fellow members, and then use a search engine to see if the privacy options above are working, it will appear they are NOT. This is only because you are signed into the site. Sign out and check again. You will see that none of your profile information is viewable by non members.

Emails may be shared within this site using the contact option at the top of each member's profile page (just look under the member's main photo in the upper left). This way you will be able to contact members without sharing your private email address, unless you choose to do so.

No blast emails.  By joining this site you agree not to send any emails to the entire membership or a substantial number of members.  Only the site administrators are permitted to send 'blast emails' that go to the entire membership of the Sandbridge Beer Club.  Violators of this policy are subject to membership termination.

Minimal email communications.  The Sandbridge Beer Club understands that members do not want to receive countless pointless emails.  Blast emails to the entire membership will be kept to an absolute minimum.  As a member, you understand and agree that blast emails from SandbridgeBeerClub.com may contain marketing messages from our club sponsors.

All club email news sent from us to you via this web site: For those of you with spam blocking or email filtering capabilities, please add noreply@classcreator.net to your email account as a safe sender in order to ensure you receive email communications from us.

Please note that if you want your profile removed from on this site please Contact Us.‚Äč

 
 

3. SETTING UP YOUR PROFILE

Return to Menu

In order to access the pages that are password protected on this site, you must set up a profile by providing a minimum of your email address, and a password.

To set up your profile: locate the "Member Profiles" link, scroll down to the bottom of the page and follow the prompts to create your profile.

Private information like your email address, home address, and phone numbers will not be visible to fellow members. We collect mailing addresses in the event that we need to contact you by snail mail or phone. Your information will never be given to other members without your permission.

We encourage you to add a current picture to your profile as your Master Photo. This photo will be displayed in various areas around the site.

Updates: If you change your email address, snail mail address, or phone number, please update your Contact Info so we have up to date information. That way you'll always be in the know about club activities!

Passwords:

Choosing a password: Passwords do not need to be the high security style recommended for some sites. Choose something simple that you are certain you will remember. Clicking the "Remember Me" will allow you to bypass entering the password each time you visit, but eventually the "remember me" will fail (for instance when you get a new computer). Please make note of your password!

If you forget your password simply click on "forgot password". If you have several email accounts, and you don't remember the one you used to set-up your account, please Contact Us.

7. KEEPING OUR CLUB FREE

Return to Menu

The Sandbridge Beer Club is a not-for-profit volunteer organization and we operate on a shoestring budget. Our goal is to keep the SBC free for all members.  Of course, we need funds for club operating expenses (e.g., website, beer tastings, etc.).  As such, we sell sponsorships and merchandise to fund our activities.  We do not offer refunds on sponsorships or merchandise, but we will try to accommodate requests such as a different color for a t-shirt.  Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
