The Terms of Service also include our Privacy Policy, that you can review here: Privacy Policy This is a very standard provision for a site like miloot.com: since you don't need to register to access most of our services, we have to disclaim some things in advance (like the fact that our site might experience downtime, that we don't give legal advice, etc.). Our Terms are linked on every page of the site, according to the industry standard, to be easily found.

Should you disagree with some of the provisions herein, you can either leave the Website (although we'll be sad to see you go!), or contact us at contact@miloot.com. We would love to hear your suggestions !
