You are granted a limited, non-exclusive license to create a hypertext link to other parts of the Service, provided that the link does not portray the Service, NukedGallery, or NukedGallery members in a false, misleading, or defamatory way. We may revoke this license at any time. You will not frame any aspect of the Service or any NukedGallery content.

The Forums at NukedGallery also have the ability to send you emails informing you of replies if you so elect. Please refer to the Notices section below.
Paid Support Services
Paid support options are available from this site. Unless otherwise noted and/or documented (via email), all payment is due prior to the start of the support call. By submitting to and agreeing to a paid support request, you are entering into a legally binding contract between yourself and NukedGallery. You have a two (2) day right of rescission, during which point you may cancel your support request. However, if the work has begun and is proceeding to your satisfaction, or the work has already been completed to your satisfaction within the 2 day period, payment must be made promptly. Once the 2 day period has passed, if you fail to follow up to a support team member's communications, and this failure results in the inability for the support team member to complete the requested job, you must either: 1) resume prompt communications with the team member to facilitate the completion of the job, or 2) submit full payment for the job and ask for the job to be canceled. For services which require partial payment up front, followed by the balance being paid upon completion of the work, outstanding balances must be paid off no later than ten (10) days following completion of work as indicated by a PayPal invoice, unless prior written arrangements have been made and agreed to by both NukedGallery.net and the user requesting the services. Late payments will incur a 50% late penalty fee. Failure to pay will result in legal action being taken against the offending party.
