Brief Review

Welcome to the Black Nova Designs web hosting Terms of Service.
We know no one wants to read through all these boring rules but it's important you understand some key things from the wall of text below:

 

No Warez Absolutely under no circumstances do we allow any type of illegal or copyrighted material on our servers. Breaking this rule will get you a permanent suspension, we have a zero tolerance policy regarding this.
