Privacy Policy

Welcome to Ace Pickleball Zone. Our commitment to your privacy is paramount. This Privacy Policy outlines the types of information we may collect or that you may provide while interacting with and our practices for using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information.

Who We Are

Our website address is


When you leave comments on our site, we collect data in the comments form, your IP address, and browser user agent string to aid in spam detection.

An anonymized string (hash) created from your email address may be provided to the Gravatar service to check if you are using it.

The Gravatar service’s privacy policy is here. After your comment’s approval, your profile picture is publicly visible in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, avoid including embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Visitors can download and extract location data from images on the website.


If you leave a comment, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies for convenience, so you don’t have to re-enter them for future comments. These cookies last for one year.

Visiting our login page sets a temporary cookie to check if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Logging in sets cookies to save your login information and screen display choices. Login cookies last two days, and screen option cookies for a year. If you select “Remember Me,” your login persists for two weeks. Logging out removes these cookies.

Editing or publishing an article sets an additional cookie in your browser. This cookie, which includes no personal data, indicates the post ID of the article you edited and expires after 1 day.

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Articles may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.). Such content from other websites behaves exactly as if the visitor has visited those websites.

These sites may collect your data, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content.

Data Sharing

If you request a password reset, your IP address is included in the reset email.

Data Retention

We retain comments and their metadata indefinitely. We store registered users’ personal information in their user profile. Users can see, edit, or delete their personal information anytime (username cannot be changed). Administrators can also see and edit that information.

Your Rights

If you have an account or have left comments, you can request an exported file of your personal data we hold, including any data you have provided. You can also order the erasure of your personal data. This does not include data we must keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where Your Data Is Sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Third-Party Services

We use Ezoic for personalization and analytic services; thus, Ezoic’s privacy policy applies and can be reviewed here.
