This is ChipBit's legal information section. Since our servers and head administrator are based in the United Kingdom, we are bound by the laws of the United Kingdom. However, because this is the internet, we also feel we should respect the laws of other countries our administrators and visitors come from, so for any conflicting points between each law, we attempt to 'make do' with what believe is best and fair. We, to the best of our knowledge, have followed all the necessary laws which allow us to do what we do. However, if there are still matters which need to be discussed in a legal matter, please contact James 'PixelDrift' Mayell, the owner of ChipBit, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is the visitor's sole responsibility to read our legal information before using any service that ChipBit provides. This page can also change occasionally, so it is important to keep checking if anything has been altered whether the homepage or other locations states the changes or not. Failure to do so means the visitor will be solely responsible for any legal consequence as outlined by the clauses below.
