This varies, just to be honest, so let me break it down…
An account as a website member we only take your first and last name (as you present it) and email address (must be real, you will need to verify it). Passwords are stored with encryption in our database, however we recommend ALL accounts have a password different from other social media / alike.
Any other profile information you provide is voluntary and does not impact access on the website.
Any instances of the website requesting your location is not stored, or used for other reasons than specific to the needs to provide services such as directions (for example, in the directory) and otherwise. Many of these solutions will use highly respected solutions such as Google to accomplish this solution and again, is not kept for other reasons.
Any credit card information, shipping information and similar, will be done through third party solutions. This includes (optional) donations through Patreon, PayPal, RedBubble (merchandise purchases) and other providers however this information is done through them directly and is not collected here.
The directory collects information OF AN ESTABLISHMENT such as an address, phone and other information, but this would be listed publicly, so this is up to you if you choose to disclose it. Payments for any directory upgrades / features will be done through PayPal.
In short, I’m not trying to be responsible for more than is needed to provide a great community for our local KC people and I want to keep it that way as much as possible.
Adding a profile picture, as well as cover image, is very easy!
Once registered, click on My Profile at the top of the site, then directly below your profile display there are several links and you should be on Profile already. Just below that are links where you can easily add a profile picture as well as cover image!
This page also has a great deal of profile settings to explore and manage as you desire 🙂
If you create an account, you will have access to:
– Directory- adding listings, managing said listings, reviewing listings and adding content to listings.
– Community- add friends, message them, post on the forums, add/join groups, add/join events.
If you encounter a listing that is not proper for some reason, such as spam or alike you can report the listing to us using the small buttons in the top right of any listing that appear when you put your mouse in that area. One will be a flag icon and this will open another window that helps us understand why you flagged that listing.
Once flagged, we’ll look at the listing to determine if it is violating our community standards.
Nope! Our system allows you to add a listing for ANY eatery oriented establishment, if you are the owner, you then visit that listing and claim it – or if not, the owner can later come and claim the listing themselves.
When you make a listing for an establishment (your own or making one which you do not own) it is then available for images, content, reviews and much more to be added. The listings are SEO optimized and allow you to select the categories and other aspects which help provide our community with information about your establishment.
You can add a complete listing at no charge, we are exploring added features to help some establishments expand with paid services, however we do want to ensure that any establishment in our area has access to a reasonable, complete listing that is feature rich.
