Is there a way to add a page with "terms and conditions" to my form? Now I have a link to the "terms and conditions" page with a check box, but the page shows up in a google search because it's linked to my form. I want to find a way to have clients check that they've read the terms without the terms showing up in a google search (which will happened if linked to my webpage in some way).
I've tried to hover the text, but I think the text is too long. Or maybe I'm not doing it right.

Can you please elaborate on google search result issue.
You may like to have a look at this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/76-How-to-add-agreement-check-box-to-a-form
If the text are too long for your form, you can display the "Terms and Condition" in hyperlink. Check this form: http://www.jotform.com/form/10694504891
Hope this helps.

Thank you for getting back to me so soon. I've tried the hyperlink method successfully. I thought it was working great for awhile. Then I tried to search for my website on google, and my terms and conditions and fees came up when I typed in my website name. I don't want them to be public. I only want people to see them when they fill out my registration form. I also made the terms and conditions page private on my website. My web builder told me that the page comes up in google because it's a link.
Thanks for your help!

You may consider using rel="nofollow" on your Terms and Condition page. Check this guide: http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=96569
Or, by using robots.txt: http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=156449.

Hi Welvin, I will look into this. Thanks so much!

I'm just trying to figure out how to use the rel = "nofollow". I want to make sure I'm doing it correctly, since my page will show up in google for awhile if I'm not. Where do I add the code? The tutorial doesn't explain that.

Also, could you please remind me how to add a terms and conditions link to my form? It's been awhile since I've updated it. Thank you!

If you'd like a terms that pops-up over form, use the following code.
Just replace the bolded URL to your terms and conditions URL and adjust the window width and height. I have already added the nofollow on that code.
You can paste this code using Free Text HTML tool or under the checkbox options.
Hope this helps. Thank you!

If I do it this way, will it be possible to print out the terms?
- JotForm SupportEltonCrisAnswered on April 29, 2013 at 01:47 AM
You can add a print button on your terms page. You can use the following code.

Thanks! Do I need to do this in the options window on the jot form or on the html for my terms page?
- sidharth_kchAnswered on April 29, 2013 at 04:21 AM
You should add this print button in your Terms & Condition page (html page).
