User accounts

RFolks allows you to create a password-protected user account and to provide content about yourself and other people when logged into this account.

We require a valid email address for your account to be active and any correspondance we need or wish to address to you is done on this address. This email, whch we advise you not to include in any content that you provide, is not shown on the web site in any circumstance under our control.

Your password is not visible to us and we advise you to take care in choosing your password and hiding it from other people. If you should loose you password the "lost pasword" link will generate a new random password that will be sent to the email that you have previously indicated.
