If you live in Los Angeles, and you use your credit card for your purchase,
you should be getting your card in about one to two weeks, assuming there
are no problems with your order (e.g. missing mailing address, bad email address).
If you used a check to make your payment, it will take an average of 5 working
days extra to receive your order.
If you live in other states, or other countries, it will take longer depending
on the snail mail speed. If you do not get an email from zbone.com after you
have placed your order, there may be a problem with your order or email address.
Please email us with a valid email address so we can clear up any problems.
Other than the price, one year memberships will expire after one year.

Sorry no. But you can join the Z-NET services to get access to those
new services that are provided there. You can do so by going to
zbone.net and click on "Join"
after reading what is available there.
Notice that the price to join the Z-NET service plus the price of the original
lifetime Z-VIP membership, is the same as the new price of the lifetime Z-VIP
membership. So you're not losing anything by joining the Z-NET service.
If you are one of the original lifetime Z-VIP members who paid full price
($60), please email me if you want to be admitted to the Z-NET services for
no extra fees.
Your one year membership lasts one year from the date of purchase.

in the order form. Next, enter the names of the other individuals in

Sorry, no. Only the person who made the order gets all the membership privileges.
The others will get a Z-VIP membership card, and a request to join the Z-VIP
mailing list. Specifically, the other people will not get access to the Z-VIP
forum. The reason for this is because in order to be able to access the Z-VIP
forum, you cannot be anonymous. Since only the person who ordered the membership
revealed their identity, the others are not eligible. However, the membership
card will identify them as lifetime members, the same as the person who made

form. Please note that some participating clubs may require you to show your
Sorry, no. Like software, once you purchase the membership, there is no
way of us to know where you visited, what you did or what privileges you have
already used. And before you ask, no we cannot pro-rate the remaining portion
of your membership because that would be an easy way for people to get a shorter
period of membership than the full year. This would not be fair to the other

all the credit card information only on their secure server. Zbone.com does

card and nothing else. We will not sell your address to any other business
or entity for any reason at any time. If there is a problem with your
order, and we cannot reach you by the email that you have provided, then we
may send you a letter to your address.

conditions on the privileges (e.g. day of the week, time of day).

parties, special events and promotions. If you still feel that there is a
problem, please email us at email@example.com
with the name of the club, the date and time of your visit and any other information
you think would help us track down your problem.
