From page 11 of the PDF "User Learning":

"Internet Access Devices (IADs) – User Awareness

If a user does not agree to the terms and conditions they are directed to speak to their adviser to discuss their reasons for declining. The claimant will read the disclaimer and then scroll to the lower edge of the page to accept the conditions. The next page to appear displays the available Menu options."

They do not appear to take No for an answer, or am I reading this incorrectly?
