Rather dull formalities

This is the bit of our website where we explain all the legal bits and bobs. To be quite frank, it’s long and dull. Like worms. But it’s one of those necessary evils. Like dentists. We’re trying to liven things up with silly metaphors; it may not be working. Anyway, here goes…
