CONTACT
The KidZone was designed by and is maintained by Deborah Whipp in Tallahassee, Florida, USA. For all inquiries regarding this site, please email Deborah Whipp at info@dwwebdesigns.com. You will receive a response as soon as possible, usually within 48 hours.


PRIVACY POLICY
KidZone does not set cookies nor track visitors in any way whatsoever. All email sent to us is read, responded to if needed, and then deleted.


INTERNET SAFETY FOR KIDS
While the Internet is a wonderful and useful tool, some sites feature inappropriate and even harmful material for children. We recommend parents and children take a moment to visit SafeKids.com, a site offering tips, advice and useful links to make your family's online experience fun and productive.


KZ KIDS' PAGES
Photos, art, riddles, poems etc. submitted for the KZ Kids' Page are not shared or sold to anyone for any reason. For safety purposes, children's photos and other submitted work are identified by age, first name and last initial only. If you or your child have submitted a photo or other item for the KZ Kids' Page, we will reply by email if and when your child's photo or work is being displayed here at the KidZone. To submit a photo or other item for the KZ Kids' Page, email info@dwwebdesigns.com. Email addresses from submitted photos or work are not stored, shared or sold to anyone.

To suggest a link for the KidZone Kid Links page, please email info@dwwebdesigns.com. Suggested sites will be reviewed and added to the appropriate category should they be accepted.


PRINTING INSTRUCTIONS
For best results on your printing project from the KidZone Printing Fun page, use cardstock or index paper. Select high quality printing from your printer's set up options. From the page which features your printing project, click "File" at the top left corner of your screen, then select "Page Setup." Clear the "Header" and "Footer" fields, then set your page margins to 0.5 for the top, bottom, left and right. Click "File" again, then "Print."


JAVASCRIPT ENABLED BROWSERS
Some of the games at the KidZone require a "Javascript enabled browser." Javascript is a programming language. Most games offered at the KidZone were created in Javascript and you won't be able to play them if you do not have a Javascript-enabled web browser. It should not be a problem at all because the latest versions of most browsers have Java implemented (Netscape 2.0 and higher and Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0 and higher). If you have an older browser, you can easily download the latest version of Netscape Navigator or Microsoft IE by clicking one of the links below:
bulletMicrosoft Internet Explorer
bulletNetscape Communicator/Navigator
If you already have a recent browser and have problems accessing the Java games, be sure the "Java enabled" function of your browser is switched on (in Netscape: Edit - Preferences - Advanced - Enable Java).


SCREEN CAPTURE
If you have colored a picture, decorated the Dollhouse or finished other games, you may save your completed work as an image file with a Screen Capture. There are 2 ways to perform this in Windows: press the Print Screen (or PrtScn) key on your keyboard to copy the entire screen to the clipboard, or press Alt-Print Screen to copy only the active window. You will then need to open an image editor (such as Microsoft Paint, which comes with Windows), create a new file, and select Paste from the Edit menu.

On a Macintosh, pressing Command-Shift-3 creates a PICT file of the entire screen in the top directory of your boot drive. Press Command-Shift-4 to change the cursor to a cross, which you can click and drag to select an area of the screen to capture in a PICT file. Adding the Control key to either of these combinations copies the screen image to the clipboard which may then be pasted in an image editor.


MIDI FILES
MIDI is an acronym for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, a standard adopted by the electronic music industry for controlling devices, such as synthesizers and sound cards, that emit music. A MIDI representation of a sound includes values for the note's pitch, length, and volume. MIDI files do not contain actual recorded music. Instead, the music sequence is recorded as a series of numbers which explain how the music is to be played back.

To play a Midi File simply click on it and give it time to load. You can also download Midi files by right-clicking on the file name and selecting either SAVE TARGET AS or SAVE LINK AS (depending on you browser) and then save to a selected file on your hard drive.

Playing a MIDI File requires a sound card, speakers and driver software. Most computers already have these, but if you are unable to hear the music, you may need to download a MIDI plug-in. You may download Free MIDI plug-ins in a matter of minutes which will allow you to play MIDI files.
