Shouldn't they be displaying the user agreement in their index page? Are we supposed to read all the terms and conditions of all sites before accessing them?
In addition, you should not make any copies of any part of this website in any way since we do not want anyone copying us.
Ok, that doesn't sound like it is written by a law firm, and that is a nice reason for not being copied.
We also do not allow any links to our site without our express permission . . .
ok. If I have to link I guess, I would link to their terms and conditions page which seems to be more interesting than the rest of the stuff.
We do not permit our website to be “spidered”, or a program run through the website, for purposes of obtaining email addresses to be used in commercial email campaigns.
And everybody else does. Couldn't this has been written better?
We do permit search engines to access our website for purposes of indexing search results.
And now, that is how you tell search engines to spider or not to spider the website. What if that was "We do not permit . . ." I bet the search engines will index the site and their terms and conditions? Have those people heard of robots.txt?
