What is a Cookie?
A cookie is a very small text file
placed on your hard drive - with your permission - by a web server.
Identification: We use
cookies to identify you uniquely. For example, this allows us to
pre-populate your e-mail address on the login page.
Tracking and Maintaining Session info: Once you have
logged in, we use the cookie to distinguish between your mail
session and that of the many other people using our service. For
example: After you have written a message and you go to your Inbox,
we need to display your Inbox and not somebody else's. Setting
cookies is currently the best method of maintaining session
information over the web. DomainCow.com may allow advertisers or
partners to set cookies, however, only if they agree to abide by our
privacy rules and policies.
Are cookies secure?
A cookie cannot contain program
code, so it cannot be used as a virus nor can it be used to extract
data from your system. When a cookie is set, only the server which
set the cookie can access the information in that cookie. The use of
cookies allows DomainCow.com to provide a higher level of security for
your e-mail account.

You may request that e-mail be sent to your DomainCow.com account

5. How does DomainCow.com protect the privacy of children
younger than 13?
We believe that it's especially
important to protect children's privacy online.
DomainCow.com does ask that children under 13 get their parent's
permission to sign up for a new account. We administrate this by
asking the parent to click on a box saying it's O.K. for the child
to use the service after entering their registration information.
All general information collected from children is used only for
statistical analysis, feedback and those purposes described in the
signup process. We actively block the transmission of children's
personal information to advertising third parties, regardless of
whether children request promotional opportunities through us.
There are a number of emerging standards in the area of
children's privacy that will affect how we process a child's profile
information in the future.
6. How do I access, change or delete information about
Your personal information can be accessed, or
changed by selecting "Preferences" then "Personal Info" in the
navigation bar on the left, once you are logged in.
7. How may I protect my privacy on the Internet and within
- Know the risks.
If you provide your e-mail address
to public domains such as chat rooms or newsgroups, or you provide
it to websites which don't respect your privacy, you may begin to
receive unsolicited e-mail. Unsolicited e-mail is also known as
spam. Although DomainCow.com has strict rules prohibiting spam and
we do block certain known groups from sending unsolicited messages
to DomainCow.com members, it is generally a good idea to provide
your e-mail address only to people or groups that you trust.
- Educate yourself.
Look for a privacy statement on
every site you visit on the Web, and search for information on how
to protect your privacy.
- Tell your children: "Never talk to strangers!"
Teach children not to give out their names or other
personal information. Tell them never to fill out online
registration forms without your knowledge and consent.
- Use complex passwords.
If your password is simple,
it is also simple for a hacker to break it and gain access to your
e-mail account or other private areas. To protect your privacy,
you should use complex passwords consisting of very long and
awkward keystroke combinations. This makes the hacker's job much
We send reminders of your account passwords only after the
appropriate security questions have been answered. NEVER GIVE YOUR
PASSWORD TO ANYONE. If someone claiming to represent DomainCow.com
in an e-mail or chat room asks for your DomainCow.com password, DO
NOT RESPOND. The only time we ask for your password is via a web
page, when you need to access our system (such as the login
screen). Please help us keep our records current by updating your
personal information when it changes. You can access your personal
information by selecting "My Account, Personal Information" from
the navigation bar on the left, when you're logged into your
