Terms and Conditions
We would like to keep things simple by writing this agreement as short as possible but there are some legal points we need to mention. We also need to keep it structured so that we can refer to certain parts of this agreement in different texts. We tried to avoid all the legal language and write in very plain English.
All in all, the purpose of this text is to inform you about how you can use Protipster and its local variants.
