About IP Addresses:

An IP address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the Web. Web servers — the central hosting computer that “serves up” Web pages-automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When users request pages from the Site, our servers log the users’ IP addresses. We do not link IP addresses to anything other information about you which is personally identifiable. This means that a user’s session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us.

What are ‘cookies’?:

‘Cookies’ are pieces of information that a web site transfers to an individual’s hard drive for record keeping purposes. ‘Cookies’ make Web-surfing easier for you by saving your passwords and preferences while you’re at a site. The use of ‘cookies’ is an Industry standard — you’ll find them at most major web sites. Most web browsers are initially set to accept cookies.


J Play collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and usage analysis of the Site and to report aggregated information to its advertisers.

J Play uses ‘cookies’ to track how and when guests use its Site. ‘Cookies’ are used to see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates are made to the Site based on data collected by ‘cookies’ such as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. If you accept the first tracking cookie from the Site, you won’t be offered as many afterwards. If you’d prefer, you can set your web browser to refuse cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent. However, it is possible that some parts of the site, such as the forum, and giveaway pages, will not function properly if you do so.

J Play does not use cookies to:

retrieve information from your computer that was not originally sent in a cookie.
identify specific individuals.

Except as described above, J Play does not use the information transferred through cookies for any promotional or marketing purposes, nor is that information shared with any third parties.

J Play reserves the right to amend this Privacy Policy at any time. If this Privacy Policy is changed, J Play will place an alert on the homepage of the Site (to advise you that changes have been made) and the changes will be posted on the site. You must read the new Privacy Policy before using the Site.

Users should be aware that when you are visiting the site, you could be directed to other sites that are owned or operated by unrelated party and which are not controlled or operated by J Play. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data or solicit personal information. Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online – for example, via message boards or chat – that information can be collected and used by people you don’t know. While J Play strives to protect its user’s personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.
