This is our new and improved Atticus Club Website

This is our new Atticus website. I hope you like the new design and features. We are now using OpenStreetMaps, because Google changed the license and conditions for Google Maps.
Not all content is publicly accessible. There are now at least four access-levels: public, registered, Atticus Club Members and Atticus Committee. Our Atticus photo galleries and other club-related content are only accessible by our members, personal data ore only accessible by members of our committee.
All personal data, names and passwords (encrypted) are stored in the database. They can not be "harvested". The whole communication between every user and our website is safe and SSL-encrypted.

We want to improve the information-management and communication in our club by using newsletters and different access-levels, therefore we have to introduce some rules for management purposes:

  • All members of Atticus Chess Club shall be registered on our website and shall have additional rights. Names have to be correct, usernames may vary
  • Every member shall check and complete his data; name and e-mail-address are mandatory
  • Every member will be registered for our newsletter and has, of course, the right to unsubscribe. The newsletter is necessary to inform all our members about our club, teams, AGM, ... and everything else related to our club
  • Every new member shall register himself on the website and send an e-mail to the webmaster to get additional access rights.
