We unearthed that all the sites examined have disclaimers regarding the use of their products or services but there are several contradictions that are obvious those activities of the sites which undermine these disclaimers, for example all sites offer plagiarism-free guarantees for the work and at least eight have advertising which generally seems to contradict their terms and conditions.
