No more Terms and Conditions for use of HubPages?

    It's very odd - the Terms and Conditions - revised as of 9th February and referenced in the blog post http://blog.hubpages.com/2016/02/02/new-year-new-sites/ have DISAPPEARED

    see http://hubpages.com/help/user_agreement_2016_02_09 - it no longer exists!

    Plus I think I referenced the nature of the new Terms in a forum thread - and that also seems to have disappeared

    Somebody care to explain?

        No - it's the link to the terms in the blog post which is the problem

      We need to post the updated ToU a week prior to it going into effect. During that week, we have two separate pages for the ToU - the current ToU and the updated ToU. The blog post linked to the updated ToU before it went into effect.

      http://hubpages.com/help/user_agreement is always the URL for the current ToU, and it's accessible from the footer.

        So maybe update the link in the blog in case people refer back to it in future?

        I know I save key blog posts for reference purposes

    At the bottom of this page is a link to the terms of use.

    http://hubpages.com/help/user_agreement

    It worked for me.

      This is getting tedious.

      Read this paragraph in the blog post http://blog.hubpages.com/2016/02/02/new-year-new-sites/

      "Please review the revised Terms of Use and Privacy Policy— they will go into effect on February 9th, 2016."

      This announces the NEW Terms of Use. I clicked the link embedded in 'Terms of Use' when it was published and it went to a NEW Terms of Use i.e. the one now accessible via the link at the bottom of the page

      The thing is - why would you go to the trouble of publishing an announcement - and then kill the link in the post which announces the new terms and conditions. Doesn't make sense to me. 

      Why not just change the link?

        I'm assuming they modified the original terms and just forgot to link to the correct division in the new text after getting rid of the new page they made.
