ANNgroups Terms of Service for Your Personal Use
Welcome! By using ANNgroups services ("ANNgroups Services"), you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions (the "Terms of Service").
The groups displayed as search results are created by people and organizations over whom ANNgroups exercises no control. Groups are created by individuals with ANNgroups's automated machinery and computers, and ANNgroups cannot and does not screen the groups before including them in the automated search results. ANNgroups assumes no responsibility for any group included in any search results or otherwise featured to by the ANNgroups Services.
Likewise, voice messages and emails sent are created by persons and organizations over whom ANNgroups exercises no control. ANN voice messages and emails are created by individuals (group initiators) with ANNgroups's automated machinery and computers, and ANNgroups cannot and does not screen the voice mails or emails before distributing them via the automated system. ANNgroups assumes no responsibility for the voice messages or emails of any group by the ANNgroups Services.
Personal Use Only
The ANNgroups Services are made available for your personal, non-commercial use only. You may not use the ANNgroups Services to sell a product or service, or to increase traffic to your Web site for commercial reasons, such as advertising sales. You may not take the results from a ANNgroups search and reformat and display them, or mirror the ANNgroups home page or results pages on your Web site. If you want to make commercial use of the ANNgroups Services, you must enter into an agreement with ANNgroups to do so in advance. Please contact us for more information.
However, if you are a company or association interested in adding ANNgroups services to your organization’s web site to allow various departments or sales groups or teams within your organization to create small subgroups which can receive ANN voice messages and emails, we encourage you to do so. Please contact us for more information.

Requests for Removal of Groups or Members of Groups
ANNgroups occasionally receives requests from people to remove groups or members from its indices. Although ANNgroups reserves the right to address such requests individually, the general approach that ANNgroups takes reflects the following principles:
ANNgroups's groups have been created, indexed and compiled through an automated process with no advance review by human beings. Given the enormous volume of groups, ANNgroups cannot and does not screen any group created through its indices. At any member’s request, ANNgroups will review the purpose of a group and/or its use of ANN messages and emails and, in its sole discretion, determine whether to remove a group from its website.
In addition, ANNgroups may terminate any groups or members which it considers to have abused the ANN services. ANNgroups has full and sole discretion to determine what constitutes abuse, shall determine what constitutes abuse, and its determination shall be final.
These Terms of Service will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to its conflict of laws provisions or your actual state or country of residence. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision or portion of the Terms of Service to be unenforceable, the remainder of the Terms of Service will continue in full force and effect.
These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes and replaces all prior or contemporaneous understandings or agreements, written or oral, regarding such subject matter. Any waiver of any provision of the Terms of Service will be effective only if in writing and signed by ANNgroups.
