LINKS TO EXISTING PERSONAL PAGES
The Nanty Glo Home Page will link, at the request of the owner, any existing page on the worldwide web that meets the above criteria.
The whole world has access to anything on the Internet. Anything on the worldwide web can be easily copied, and hackers can alter images and text. Though out of the hundreds of millions of pages of material now on the Internet this is not likely to happen to any given page, be advised that it is possible and that, short of law enforcement taking action, no one can be held responsible, and the webmaster of the Nanty Glo Home Page takes no responsibility, for such acts of vandalism, or illegal copying and use of text or graphics. We will repair any damage to our site as early as possible (with the caveat that the webmaster works at this as a hobby, not as employment). At this writing none of these problems have ever occurred on any of the webmaster's sites.
