Rowling (and the Company’s decision on this shall be final). Apart from that, none of the content on the Site may be republished, posted, transmitted, stored, sold, distributed or modified without the Company’s prior written consent and any use without consent may constitute an infringement of the holder’s rights.
In any case, you are not in any circumstances permitted:
