our geocaching association is territory restricted (we represent the geocachers of a specific territory, state) this is related to insurances and commercial partnerships.
When people sign in, i'd like to retrieve their basic information, including their rough home location (county, state).
It seems that the geocaching API is now available again to new partners, however this is overkill for what we want to do.
Is there any way to do this? I have tried to POST a request and get the profile HTML to parse but it requires to be logged in and therefore does not work as a server.
Is there a solution to do this?
It is critical for some aspect of the associations that we do not accept geocachers from another county. However, we can't ask for a copy of passport or ID as this would access too much privacy.
Thanks for advices.
