Privacy and Meetup

You do not have to have a Meetup account, or join our Meetup group, to attend our events. You're very welcome to use this site as an information resource without signing up at all. By signing up, you will receive periodic e-mails from us, and if you RSVP for an event, you'll get late-breaking news about the event if anything changes. Your RSVPs also make our group more visible on Meetup, giving more people a chance to learn about us and possibly attend.

If you do get a Meetup account and join our group, here are instructions on how to manage your Meetup identity and privacy. You may want to print this page, so you can refer to it as you follow these instructions.

You are in control of your Meetup name and image: Most people on Meetup use their real first names and a face photos so others can recognize them. For our group, we suggest that you use either your first name or a made-up name, and not your full name. Under the word "Account" at the top of this page, click on the word "General." On the next page, you can edit your Meetup name, and add any photo you like (and it doesn't have to be your face, if you'd prefer a flower, a sun or no image at all). The name, photo and other info you provide on this page will appear in every Meetup group you're in (if you're in more than just one). You should assume that the information you post on your profile page will be visible to the public, and can be found by web search engines like Google.

(If you're in multiple Meetup groups, you also have the ability to have a different photo of yourself for each group, if you like. In the case of our group, you might want to do that if you'd prefer your participation not be obvious, for professional or other reasons. To do that, you'd click "My profile" on any of our Meetup pages (including this one). Then you could post a different photo, or no photo at all.)

You can block others from writing to you through the Meetup e-mail forwarding system: Go to "Account," then "E-mail and Notifications," then scroll down to the end of the list of your meetup groups. Select "Only Organizers." Please be assured that even if someone writes to you through this system, Meetup has not provided that person with your e-mail address.

You can block others from seeing what Meetup groups you're a member of: Under "My Profile," click "View Profile," and then find and click the link that says, "Hide my Meetup Groups from others." That link can be found in the right column of the page.

You can limit the amount of e-mail you get from our meetup group: Under "My Profile," click "E-mail and Notifications." On that page you can remove the check-marks from as many boxes as you see fit. We might suggest you leave the following boxes checked: "a new Meetup is announced" and "changes to a Meetup I'm attending" (both near the top), and "special announcements from Organizers to members" (at the bottom). That way you'll still get updates from the organizers of the group.

A couple of things not to do:
Please don't use the Meetup e-mail system to contact anyone in our group unless you know the person, and the person has agreed in advance for you to contact him/her in this way. And please don't use the newly-launched Meetup "Good to see you" feature, which tends to generate lots of messages that people don't want or like.

These instructions may get out-of-date if Meetup changes its processes. If that seems to have happened, or you have questions, please contact us.
