Media Usage Agreement
We're not big on complicated legalese and jargon, but we do want to ensure that there's no confusion (now or later) about what we're both doing here. So, in as few words as possible, here's our understanding of our agreement. Please read through and, if you're satisfied it's correct, complete your details, sign and click 'submit'.
Skype guests : If you're connecting via Skype, we want to be sure you sound your best, so please get your hands on a headset with a microphone for the recording. This way we avoid many of the background noises and get a consistent voice level from you (and higher quality than the built in mics usually provide.)
Thank you :-)
