Terms of Service
Resighting runs a website, resighting.com and our service is free to use. The website allows you to
mark the location of things which you see every day and to discover and rediscover things which you
and others have sighted before. How you use the website is up to you, but please remember that you
are part of a community and so whilst you should be free to express yourself as you wish, you must
also remember there are others who have thoughts, opinions, beliefs and a voice which must be respected
as much as your own.
