Terms and Conditions
September 10, 2021
Dear Website Visitor,
I, Kiran R. Ambardekar, thank you for visiting my website and welcome you to the Terms and Conditions section in it. Many find this part of a website unwelcoming and intimidating. I can admit I did too until a friend who also happens to be a lawyer explained that the absence of it would lead to uncertainty, confusion and finger pointing, which make things far more unwelcoming and intimidating. In that light, I request you to view the contents of this section to seek clarity and definitiveness on the various aspects of our interaction, and to consider the legal language – as tedious as it may seem – to be serving the interest of both parties, yours and mine.
The legal language begins now:
