Instructions for First Time Visitors
On this page you will find the following:
1. PRIVACY NOTICE
All contact information (address, phone number, e-mail address) that you enter into this website will be kept confidential. Your personal information will never be sold to other sites. It will not be shared or distributed.
Your contact information is private; your street address, e-mail address, and phone number cannot be seen by classmates. Each classmate has the ability to limit the visibility of his or her profile to only fellow classmates 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.
Emails may be shared within this site using the contact option at the top of each classmate's profile page (just look under the classmate's main photo in the upper left). This way you will be able to contact classmates without sharing your private email address, unless you choose to do so.
All class Email news sent from us to you via this web site: For those of you with spam blocking or email filtering capabilities, please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email account as a safe sender in order to ensure you receive email communications from us.
Please note that if you do not want your name and picture on this site it may be removed by contacting Melba (Simpson) Young. This will end all communications to you from the Vashon High School Class of 1968, unless you ask that special arrangements be made.
