Welcome to FM/CFS/ME RESOURCES. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new Products and Services (as defined below), including the addition of new FM/CFS/ME RESOURCES properties shall be subject to these Terms and Conditions.

FM/CFS/ME RESOURCES makes available a variety of products and services subject to these General Terms and Conditions ("Terms and Conditions"). When you are using any service or product at FM/CFS/ME RESOURCES that does not have a separate legal agreement, the Terms and Conditions set forth here will apply. FM/CFS/ME RESOURCES also may supplement the Terms and Conditions with posted guidelines or rules applicable to specific areas of FM/CFS/ME RESOURCES. In addition, FM/CFS/ME RESOURCES also may offer other services from time to time that are governed by the terms of service of the respective service partners.

Because the Terms and Conditions contain legal obligations, please read them carefully.

The Terms and Conditions contain a variety of provisions that are generally applicable to the Products and Services and some provisions that apply to particular Products and Services. The following is a list of links to the various provisions in the Terms and Conditions. The headings contained in these provisions, and reflected in these links, however, are solely for your convenience and have no legal import.
