Security and Emails


In order to ensure you receive important messages from our class web site, as well as messages sent directly to you from other Classmates, it's important you "whitelist" the email address (that's a .net, not a .com).


What is whitelisting? Whitelisting simply means you are telling your email program to accept all emails coming from our class web site and our Classmates. The technique for whitelisting varies by email program, but generally you will see the term "Whitelist", "Safe List", or "Safe Sender's List". This is where you want to be sure you have added the email address


Be assured that all emails sent through our site are valid — you will not receive spam email. Whitelisting is the single most important thing you can do to ensure you don't miss anything happening on our site or miss receiving your emails from your fellow Classmates.


Stop and take a moment to whitelist right now, and ensure you stay connected!

My Advice...

 1.  If you don't want people outside of our class to see your profile then go to Edit Profile and *check* the box under Profile Visibility "Allow only fellow Classmates to view..."  If you don't *check* this box and allow public to see .... Google your name and see what will be available for the public to see.  Address and email address will not be seen.  

2.  Only put month and date of birthday.  No reason to put year.  Also, don't list *exact* birthday of children.  

FAQ from Class Creator on Privacy:

Can people find my Classmates' Profile pages by searching Google or other major search engines???

 Answer: It depends. Your Classmates' Profile pages are fully indexable by major search engines, but each individual Classmate has the ability to permit viewing of his or her Profile only to fellow registered Classmates. If Profile information has been restricted to only fellow Classmates, then search engines can not get into this information and index it, nor can any non registered Classmate get in. Please note that your Classmates' public profile is found in the search engines when no restrictions have been set by the Classmate him or herself. This is the same information that anybody can see simply by visiting your web site unless a Classmate has restricted Profile viewing to only fellow Classmates.

 Can individual Classmates do anything themselves to protect their privacy???

 Answer: Yes. Each Classmate can select an option that allows only registered Classmates to view his or her Profile. If this option is selected, search engines and the general public will be blocked from accessing the Classmate's Profile page. People have different security concerns for many different reasons, so we've put this security decision squarely in the hands of each Classmate. Note: Any registered Classmate who is logged in will be able to view all Classmate Profiles.?

 I see on some Classmate Profiles people can leave comments for the Classmate. What if a Classmate doesn't want public comments left???

 Answer: The presence of the Classmate Comments board is solely under the control of the Classmate. If a Classmate doesn't want comments left for them that others can read, they can simply deactivate the Comments area under their Edit Profile area.?

 I'm concerned my Classmates might get spammed.??

 Answer: There is no need to worry about your Classmates being spammed. Class Creator utilizes an invisible-to-the-user form of spam protection that stops automated spam attacks cold. Our spam protection system works like some email spam protection systems, in that it uses a series of tests to find out if an email is from a legitimate user, or a spammer. These tests are sophisticated, and include things such as analysis of mouse movements and keyboard strokes. Simply, real email will get through, spam email will not.
