We Respect Your Privacy
At our site we maintain the highest standards of respect for your
privacy as you view our pages and/or participate in our games and
other activities. We'll briefly discuss below what you can expect
from us as you use our site either as an anonymous user or after
registering for some of our password protected services.
When you visit our pages, you are completely anonymous unless you
explicitly volunteer information in the process of registering for
our games and services. But, as with most web sites, we do collect some
rudimentary statistical information to help us assess our levels of
site traffic. This anonymous numerical information does not identify you
to us in any relevant way, nor will we ever try to draw any connections.
It is used strictly for analyzing levels of site traffic, number
of visitors, etc. This is all very standard stuff. We use the
well known Apache web server
software and employ its standard logging facilities. And we use Webalizer to crunch the
output of the Apache standard logging.
The raw logging information will not be shared with anyone else.
We may however sometimes disclose high level information about our
levels of site traffic to selected partners. This would include only
broad strokes information such as number of total visitors per month,
number of pages viewed, etc.
We do use some "cookies" (temporary identifiers) when you visit our
site, but we do not write them to your computer's disk. They exist
only as long as your session with us, and they are used only to
allow our software to maintain enough programmatic information to
allow our site to properly display selected pages. No personal information
about you is stored in these cookies. If you turn off cookies
in your browser you may find that some of our pages behave oddly or
do not work at all. That is simply the result of the server's
dependency on cookies to maintain simple anonymous session state.

We provide many links to other sites on our pages. We of course make

We provide a number of services where you may voluntarily provide
information about yourself in the course of registering for the
particular service. We will not share this information with
anyone else. We will use it only within the expected realm of the
particular service. We will not display this information on the site
unless it is made clear that you are volunteering to have such information
displayed on the site.
In particular, we will be very judicious in our use of any email addresses
you provide to us. In all places that you may enter an email address,
it is made clear what that address will be used for. We will never
"spam" you, nor provide your address to other parties. Ever.
A few of our services require further clarification:
Zinos.com provides an environment whereby you may submit your own
written work for publication on our site. Obviously, if your
material is accepted it will be displayed on the site. You have
complete control as to the author information displayed with the
article. While we do ask for your real name and an email address
for the purposes of communicating with you about your submission,
we will never use these on site. We provide separate "pen name"
and "public email" fields which you may optionally use to control
your visibility on the site.
When you play our Freecell game using a non-anonymous game name, your
scores may be displayed on our site. You of course may provide an
alias for your game name so that your real identity is not linked with
such scores displays.
When you participate in chat, either via NetCELL or Mad Chatter,
your hostname and IP address become visible to our highest level chat
moderators. They will use this only to identify troublesome visitors.
They are advised to not otherwise share this information with anyone
else, or use it in any other way themselves. Note: since they
are volunteers, however, we can not be responsible for their heeding
this policy. If you are at all concerned about this information being
available we would recommend you not use our chat services.
Opt Out Information
For any service we provide, we also provide a convenient way for you
to "opt out" or quit using that service. If we send you email associated with a
particular service, we always provide information as to how you can
cease receiving such email in the future. On Zinos we provide
full editing capabilities to allow to change your author information
as you see fit. If you would like to have your work completely removed
from Zinos, please contact the Zinos editors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On NetCELL you can always immediately remove your email address by using
the Options button. If your NetCELL game name remains unused for a
period of approximately two months, you information will automatically
