Your Privacy: All your personal information in the NC3 Membership Database will remain private. Only NCCC administrators can access the information. Once per year, a roster of names, addresses, telephone numbers, and email address will be exported to a document for distribution to NCCC members only. Your financial information (credit card, etc.) is not stored in the membership database. You can have your address, telephone, or email information withheld from the printed club roster by listing "email", "address", "home phone", etc. in the field Exclude Personal Info on Roster, when you initially sign up. Later, you can edit this field at any time by simply pressing the blue Login button above and Edit Profile.
FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions
1. I don't give out my credit card information. Can I just mail in a check?
Ans: Yes. When you sign up or renew, just select Personal Check as the payment method.
2. Do I need a PayPal account?
3. I have a NCCC Forum (Message Board) login name. Can I use this for my online membership?
Ans: Yes. During your initial sign up, just use your exact Forum (Message Board) email, login name, and password, including case.
4. The membership sign-up says my NCCC Forum (Message Board) login name is invalid.
Ans: The Forum (Message Board) and Membership applications have slightly different rules for valid usernames and passwords, although most should work (except special characters in either username or password). Just try it and see. Don't worry if your Forum login is unacceptable for NCCC Membership. Just create a new one as either login (old Forum or new NCCC Membership) will work just fine on the Forum (Message Board).
5. I want to use my Forum (Message Board) login name and the sign-up form says the name is taken.
6. I just don't do this sort of thing on-line. Can I still be a member?
Ans: Of course. You can always fill out a hardcopy Membership Form, which you can print and mail the completed form and your check to:
North County Cycle Club
P.O. Box 2866
San Marcos, Ca. 92079-2866
7. I use a computer for email. Why shouldn't I continue to send in the hardcopy form?
Those who send in the hardcopy form only will require special handling at renewal time and for all club communications, generating extra work for your NCCC board. You will also generate extra work for yourself by filling in the same information each year repeatedly. Save yourself the effort by doing it once online, and then it's saved in the database so that subsequent annual renewals are just a couple mouse clicks. The hardcopy method is intended for people who do not use a computer, and we encourage computer users to sign-up online. If you are concerned about security, your personal information is more secure in the new NCCC membership database than in the previously manual file containing your personal data. The database contains no financial information. By signing up on-line, not only does it make it more convenient for you to keep your personal info accurate, but you can protect it with your own personal password (do not use any important passwords you may use for your credit cards, bank accounts, etc., for further safety). Most people are primarily concerned with giving credit card info online. As explained in FAQ #1 above, just select the Personal Check payment option if this is your primary objection to on-line sign up. Finally, the membership software handles all email communication to members, so you must be Signed Up in the database to be more readily connected with all NCCC electronic communication including, most importantly, your automatically generated personalized annual renewal reminder. Emails to hardcopy signees must be handled manually, so there is a chance, through human error, that you may miss out on key club email communications (keeping an accurate email list was one of the reasons for the upgrade to a true membership database, as it always had minor inaccuracies).
