SmallBall is a high quality software product that is continuously revised
and updated to enhance player enjoyment and to correct defects that may
be discovered from time to time. An integral function of the SmallBall
client software (the player) actively communicates with the central server
each time you log on to play. One such integral function, performed regularly,
is a simple program file check that ensures you are using the most up
to date client software. This function does NOT transmit any data from
your PC, and is performed only to determine if you are using the most
up to date client software release. This function MUST be performed to
ensure overall system integrity and CANNOT be disabled. If you find this
to be an objectionable practice you must discontinue your use of the SmallBall
