Privacy Policy
Last updated: May 14, 2003

The privacy policy as stated below applies to the Freecell.com, Zinos.com, Jezzball.net, and BolaLoca.com, and CoolPick.com domains which together comprise this web site.

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.

Anonymous Use
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.

This site uses the services of Advertising.com for the serving and/or targeting of ads, promotions and other marketing messages. To do this, Advertising.com collects anonymous data typically through the use of cookies. To learn more about Advertising.com, go to Advertising.com privacy statement.

We provide many links to other sites on our pages. We of course make no claims of responsibility as to the privacy policies of these various linked sites.

Registered Use
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 editors@zinos.com. 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 be removed.
