Unusual References - Terms of Use, Google Survey

Hi, 

    My report includes references to a Terms of Use screen (seen here) and a Google survey. How should I go about referencing these unusual sources? The closest reference in Legal Material is legislation, and the survey was coordinated by my subject coordinator and isn't linked to any report or similar material. I'm assuming the latter can be done under a Website reference.

EDIT: 

Also, I want to reference multiple specific pages of a larger website. Do I do that as seperate references, an interconnected reference, something else entirely...?

Hi David,

I don't think these terms of references pages really fit too neatly into a legal document template, it's easiest to treat them as webpages really. So something like this maybe:

Blizzard Entertainment 2014, Battle.net terms of use, viewed 5 June 2015, <http://us.blizzard.com/en-us/company/about/termsofuse.html>.

 

As the the multiple references it might be easiest to treat the references as a single more general webpage reference unless you think that would make it too hard for the reader to find everything you are talking about. If you feel that would be the case you'll have to use a and b to separate pages from the website that are created in the same year. If you do that alphabetize by the title of the page. Eg:

(Blizzard 2015a) = Hearthstone  
(Blizzard 2015b) = World of Warcraft.

Hope this helps,

David
