2(b). The Affiliate affirms that they own the web site (or web sites, if using more than one) from which they promote the Personal Domain Service and agree to ensure that none of their web sites will display or allow any link to any other web-site, blogging pages or discussion forums or allow their own blogging pages or discussion forums (if forming part of any of their web sites) to provide information that could be construed as passing themselves or their visitors off, as some other person, group or organisation or to use any of their websites to make any unlawful, obscene, abusive, libellous, derogatory, offensive, cyber bullying or objectionable statements or any activity that is prohibited by law or for the promotion of violence, weaponry, hate sites, militant ideology or pornography in any form whatsoever or anything associated with the sex or escort industry or for displaying illegal or nuisance information that violates others’ racial or religious rights and beliefs or discriminates against their gender, age or disabilities or to promote and/or sell drugs, medicines, medical and health advice and services, pyramid schemes, chain letters or any form of gambling or to harvest information and e-mail addresses to facilitate others to generate unsolicited communications, or to use any of their websites to advocate hacking, cracking or to assist in the creation and/or distribution of computer viruses, or to participate in any form of sending mass unsolicited e-mails, irrespective as to whether their Web Site (or web sites, if using more than one) is being used for Personal or Business use.

If, as an Affiliate, you already have a website, you will have no need to actually subscribe to Our Pages Ltd's Personal Domain Service, and, although your newly created website will be instantly visible on the Internet, it will automatically be deleted after 24 hours of failing to subscribe to use the website you created.
