Terms of Service; Disclaimer;

Post by Sara on Mon Oct 05, 2009 12:04 am

I wrote a Terms of Service and a Disclaimer; if you wish to use it.
The Disclaimer should be placed on the page before the homepage on http://hypnoticstory.no-ip.org;
Whereas the TOS should be placed in the forums as the ONLY thing guests are allowed to read and also before registering.
