  • Problematic members will be removed. If you can't get along with others and are a detriment to the health of this community you will be suspended or banned. Administrators within the forums have the discretion to remove problematic members. We are a very welcoming group but there are those that just don't have great social skills, are paranoid, and can't get along with others.....if this is you then save everyone time and energy and leave.

1) Visitor Notice.
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (Personal Information) or allows us to contact you. Generally this information is requested when you are asked to register before participating on the message boards, entering a contest, or ordering e-mail newsletters. We use your Personal Information for four primary purposes:
  • To make the site easier for you to use by not having to enter information more than once.
  • To help you quickly find services or information on RMNP Forums.
  • To help us create content most relevant to you.
  • To alert you to special offers, updated information and other new services from RMNP Forums.
2) Visitor Consent.
If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still use some of the features on RMNP Forums, but you will not be able to access areas that require registration. Note that existing accounts will not be deleted under any circumstances.

We strictly protect the security of your personal information and honor your choices for its intended use. We carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Your data will be stored on a secure server. The only people who have access to this are the server administrators (our web host), and the site administrators. While we try to keep this data safe, there is always the possibility of security being compromised due to hacking and other malicious attempts. If the security of the site is compromised, we will do everything in our power to fix the issue.
