Note

This legal and privacy notice is, as I hope you've noticed, hard to read. This was done on purpose to show the importance of contrast between the text and background. Normally,I'm against using text that's hard to read, but it's perfectly OK to use this technique on material you don't want your visitors to read—like legal and privacy notices. Here's the same document in an easy-to-read format.
