If you would like to link to any part of Notanant, please read and comply with the following guidelines and all applicable laws. A site or service that links to Notanant:

These preferences must be complied with at the date that the information is used. This includes control over the use of details for mailing, telephone and email purposes by the Site Owner, other members or any third parties.
