As a charitable, not-for-profit organization, we at ZDK.F do not make, manufacture, nor engage in commercial enterprises! Nor, do we at the Z-Mall host businesses on our server nor provide them with services (such as secure pages, for business transactions), as do normal, commerical e-malls. Rather, we are just a simple link between the Believing consumer and the Believing business. So, your business stays with your server. And we will only direct traffic to your site.
However, announcing donations (selling ads) and publicizing their supporters in their bulletins and programs is a typical, legitimate fundraiser, used by many charitable organizations. So, why shouldn't we, at ZDK.F?
Moreover, to enter our Realm (and cyber-space) to get posted on Our Z-Mall Pages, we require that the advertiser take and maintain the Varangian Pledge which basically holds:
However, some of the more secular people out there seem to have their conscience damaged a bit. And as a result run into problems with some of Our LAWS and Authorities. The popular breaches tend to occur around:
So, beware! VIOLATORS WILL HAVE THEIR AD(s) REMOVED! (And the money that they donated will for their ad space will NOT be refunded!)
If you have any questions about these, then be sure to consult Our LAW LIBRARY for more details.
In addition, as a religious site, we reserve the right to refuse (or remove) any and all ads that we feel would be offensive to Our Members (or Our teachings)!
However, we DO have costs and operating expenses, too! And, as we have just done you a good turn and favor by putting your business into the Net cyber-space stream, where you can collect more business, we EXPECT you to return the favor with a generous donation. In fact, ads submitted without some kind of donation will not be posted! (Hey, we have to eat, too--and pay the utility bills!) However, that donation amount is up to you.
(But, we might add that almsgiving is a traditional teaching for God's People! And that for the truly Godly, normally, a TITHE, or 10% of the income you get on a venture, is a Scriptural Principle. So consider, as is also widely taught: remember God and HE will remember you! Yet, in any case, GIVE AS GOD DIRECTS YOU--2 Corinthians 9:6-7!)
A. BUSINESS NAME DIRECTORY: This is a Premium ad, with room for a small (thumbnail) image or company logo (in .gif format), that also displays the Name of your company or the Brand Name of your major product (in large print). There is also room for a sentence or two about your company or its product(s). (Various links are available.)
B. CLASSIFIED MERCHANDISE GUIDE: This is a basic ad, with the Name of your company (linked to your Access Page), your e-mail address, and phone number--all listed under a major merchandise classification, so that shoppers will know that you carry the product(s) they are looking for.
C. ALPHEBETICAL COMPANY LISTING: This is a bargain basement ad of just a straight list of companies (with links from their name to their Access Page). And while you may think that this is a good place to get lost in, be assured that some bargain hunters will go through every name on that list, looking to find what they want!
Some heavy advertisers may want all 3, while modest home businesses may just settle for that Alphebetical Listing.
Thus the top of the Business Name Directory is reserved for the company that sends us the most money for that monthly listing. And, similiar priority is used in the Classified Merchandise Directory, as well!
Consequently, on that Day of Review, you may find your place given to another who out bids you for that position! So, be sure to keep your donations current (and ahead of the pack). Space is limited!
Which also, unfortunately, means that if you slide in donations, then you will slide in location, too. And, may end up getting out bid for the Business Name Directory (which has very limited space), and perhaps even on the Classified Merchandiese Guide, if you slide enough (though it has more room).
Finally, those ads that continue month after month to not contribute to Our cause will eventually be removed, even from the simple Alphabetical Listing (by company name).
Money Order payments are preferred (out of the Country advertisers MUST use Money Orders). Checks, within the USA will be accepted, but your ad may be delayed until your check clears! (Plan ahead!) And, unfortunately, we MUST charge a $25.00 fee on all returned checks! (Sorry, credit card service is not yet available here, yet!)
Make payment payable to ZDK (Shaddox) Foundation.
While ads may be sent e-mail, unfortunately, payments still have to be sent snail mail, to:
As a result, all ACCESS PAGES should be consistent with a G rating.
However, as you ought NOT to allow your children to run around your city's mall unattended, so too should you not allow your children to cruise through Our Z-Mall without supervision. So, parents, consider this a PG Rated Area.
Be discrete! Senstive items of a more mature or adult nature, such as underwear, lingerie, swimwear, dancewear, feminine hygene, birth control, etc. should NOT be openly displayed on Access Pages, but may be listed on other Pages of your site--PROVIDED that they are clearly labled, so that if you don't want to buy them (or view them), you won't stumble across them, accidentally.
R or X or NC-17 RATINGS??? As such ADULT(?) material is offensive to most religious persons, these should NOT be displayed nor sold in Our Z-Mall! (Use your own Web Network to pedal such junk!)
E-Mail us at email@example.com (Mark subject box Z-MALL ADVERTISING!)

Our phone number is: (509) 493-1674 (with the Shaddox Clan offices)
As always, remember the consumer's warning: BUYER BEWARE. And be sure you know exactly what it is that you are getting! And who it is that you are trying to deal with.
