You may use the Content online only, and solely for your personal, non-commercial use, and you may download or print a single copy of any portion of the Content solely for your personal, non-commercial use, provided you do not remove any trademark, copyright, or other notice from such Content. If you operate a Web site and wish to link to AvaZinn.com, you may do so provided you agree to cease such link upon request from AvaZinn.com. No other use is permitted without the prior written permission of Ms. Zinn. The permitted use described in this Paragraph is contingent on your compliance at all times with these Terms of Service.
You may not republish any portion of the Content on any Internet, Intranet, or extranet site or incorporate the Content in any database, compilation, archive, or cache. You may not distribute any Content to others, whether or not for payment or other consideration, and you may not archive, modify, copy, frame, cache, reproduce, sell, publish, transmit, display, or otherwise use any portion of the Content.

Ms. Zinn is the webmaster of AvaZinn.com for the purpose of copyright and other laws.
Ms. Zinn is pleased to hear from visitors and welcome your comments regarding products and services owned and/or operated by Aeverine Zinn Holdings. Unfortunately, however, the policy does not allow Aeverine Zinn Holdings to accept or consider creative ideas, suggestions, or materials other than those that we have specifically requested. We hope you will understand that it is the intent of this policy to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings when projects developed by our professional staff might seem to others to be similar to their own creative work. Please do not send any unsolicited original creative materials such as stories or ideas, screenplays, or original artwork. While we do value your feedback on the services and products Ms. Zinn and AvaZinn.com provide, Ms. Zinn requests that you be specific in your comments on those services and products, and not submit any creative ideas, suggestions, or materials (unless specifically requested by Ms. Zinn).
The Site does not knowingly accept unsolicited submissions including, without limitation, submissions of scripts, storylines, articles, fan fiction, characters, drawings, information, suggestions, ideas, or concepts. The Site’s policy is to delete any such submission without reading it or forwarding it to other staff. Therefore, any similarity between an unsolicited submission and any elements in any creative work including, without limitation, a film, series, story, title, or concept would be purely coincidental.
If unsolicited submissions are sent via this Site or by any other means, these submissions become the property of Aeverine Zinn Holdings and may be used, copied, sub-licensed, adapted, transmitted, distributed, publicly performed, published, displayed, or deleted as Aeverine Zinn Holdings sees fit. You agree that you are not entitled to any compensation, credit, or notice whatsoever and that by sending an unsolicited submission you waive the right to make any claim against the author, or any parents or affiliates relating to unsolicited submissions, including, without limitation, unfair competition, breach of implied contract or breach of confidentiality.
Requests to use Content for any purpose other than as permitted in these Terms of Service should be directed to Ms. Zinn herself email@example.com. In certain cases, you may be able to use individual stories that appear on AvaZinn.com through online functionality we have specifically designated (e.g., to e-mail a story to a friend or to purchase the rights to reproduce a story for other use). In such cases, Ms. Zinn will tell you directly in the portion of the Content you may use or you will see a link in the Content itself.
