### **3tags Terms of Use** Unfortunately you have to read our terms of services. Please keep in mind that we are not the reason why these agreements exist.

In order to keep it simple for all of us, you must agree these terms of services before using 3tags or any services provided on the website. If you do not accept this agreement, you may not use 3tags or its services.
