1. THE PURPOSE OF THIS WEBSITE

Return to Menu

This site serves two purposes.  It helps promote our community to those who may be looking for an ideal place to live. To do that, it provides a limited view of CDR to the general public. In addition, the site has been designed for use by our current Home Owners for their enjoyment and to share photos, videos, and personal stories with their fellow Home Owners. For those of us who are not full time residents, this will be a Great! way to share our other home with our Camino del Rey community.

Everything you need to know about setting up a profile to gain access to the rest of our page is on this page. If you have questions, please contact Michael Ryan.

 

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 host of this web site, ClassCreator.com, is a locally-owned business. They understand the importance of your privacy. 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 Home Owners. Each Home Owner has the ability to limit the visibility of his or her profile to only fellow Home Owners 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 Home Owners profile page (just look under the home owners main photo in the upper left). This way you will be able to contact home owners without sharing your private email address, unless you choose to do so.

All Home Owner 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 do not want your name and picture on this site it may be removed by contacting Michael Ryan. This will end all communications to you from the Camino del Rey Home Owners Association unless you ask that special arrangements be made.

 
 

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 "Home Owner Profiles" link and locate your name and click on it. Follow the prompts to create your profile.

Our web site is hosted by ClassCreator.com and originally was developed for class reunions. Because of this, a few terminologies may seem strange. For example (Married/Last Name). In this field we would like you to enter your Unit number. For those of us who are not full time residents we would like you to enter your home address, city, and state for your primary home in the "Married/Last Name" field. By doing this we will be able to see on a map where we all come from. 

Private information like your email address, home address, and phone numbers will not be visible to fellow Home Owners. 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 Home Owners without your permission.

We encourage you to add a current picture to your profile as a master photo. This photo will be displayed in various areas around the site. It's also helpful to upload an additional "Now" photo, and a "Then" photo. Home Owners will enjoy seeing how you've changed!

If your name is not already on the site but you were part of the Camino Del Rey Home Owners Association, contact us at hoa@caminodelrey.us and your name will be added.

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 what other home owners are up to!

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, contact Michael Ryan. This could take a while, so please be patient.

 


4. COMMUNICATING WITH Home Owners

Return to Menu

To contact a fellow Home Owner, you may simply use the email option at the top left of each Home Owners Profile page (located under Master Photo). This feature will allow open communication between Home Owners, while protecting your personal information. If you wish to share your email address or other personal information within a message written on our site, the site will not block you from doing so.
