14ERS.COM WEBSITE & FORUM:
Your information is collected via two ways. Firstly, by browsing 14ers.com will cause the phpBB software to create a number of cookies, which are small text files that are downloaded on to your computer's web browser temporary files. The first two cookies just contain a user identifier and an anonymous session identifier, automatically assigned to you by the phpBB software. A third cookie will be created once you have browsed topics within 14ers.com and is used to store which topics have been read, thereby improving your user experience. We may also create cookies while browsing 14ers.com outside of the phpBB forum. Another way in which we collect your information is by what you submit to us. This can be, and is not limited to: Posting in the forum after registering on 14ers.com, the posting of non-forum content such as trip reports, condition/status updates or route descriptions, posting of your peak checklist(s), posting of Gear Swap entries, and posting of photos.
Your password is ciphered (a one-way hash) so that it is secure. However, it is recommended that you do not reuse the same password across a number of different websites. Your password is the means of accessing your account at 14ers.com, so please guard it carefully. Should you forget your password for your account, you can use the "I forgot my password" feature provided by the phpBB software. This process will ask you to submit your user name and your e-mail, then the phpBB software will generate a new, temporary password to reclaim access to your account.
