  • Section A | Intended Use for NoveltyAnsweringMachine
    • The intended uses for this website is:
      • To archive and preserve novelty answering machine recordings and prevent them from being lost in the digital age we live in.
      • To provide a place where younger generations can listen to and learn about the funny novelty recordings or answering machines.
      • To provide a fun place on the web, and bring laughter and smiles to those who listen.
    • Note: this website is not intended to infringe upon the rights of the awesome and creative people who made these recordings possible. We hope that in this day in age where these funny recordings have become a thing of the past, that the original creators would be happy and feel honored to have their works preserved in our archive for generations to come.
  • Section B | What our viewers are allowed to do with the content from the archive
    • Listen, view, or read the content for personal enjoyment or education.

    • Record a greeting to an answering machine or voicemail (personal use only) using their computer speakers and device microphone.
      • This is another way to keep the original creators works alive (by using them in their original intended way).
