Adding an "Agree" button

I would like to have a single checkbox right above the Submit button. Without being checked, the form cannot be sent. I added this box as 'Required' but cannot figure out how to have the default as unchecked. Digging into the code isn't really for me and I gave up after exploring options in the Property Inspector. I have the impression it's a very easy fix but I cannot figure it out.

Thanks is advance :o)

select the checkbox in design view

and make sure a checked value is set.

Not sure if I explained myself properly

The person filling out the form is required to check this box manually to agree to the terms and conditions Before it can be sent. So as soon as the form is loaded, the checkbox needs to be empty.

No matter what I try, the box is always checked by default. The form therefore passes validation and can be sent but this causes a potential legal glitch: The form makes the assumption the user has ALREADY agreed to the terms and conditions.

Thanks! :o)

More info

The link to the form: ContactUs.php

Based on what I have found on Google, PHP's boxes are all checked by default - I cannot find the code to uncheck it and I am sure I am looking in all the wrong places.

I suck at anything to do with tweaking code so I am grateful for any help.

Form attached - thank you

change the checkbox code:

php:
<input name="Has_read_and_understands_disclaimer" type="checkbox" class="formCheckboxField_Standard" id="Has_read_and_understands_disclaimer" tabindex="16" value="Yes" <?php if (!(strcmp((isset($_GET["invalid"])?ValidatedField("ContactUs","Has_read_and_understands_disclaimer"):""),""))) {echo "checked=\"checked\"";} ?> />



to:

php:
<input name="Has_read_and_understands_disclaimer" type="checkbox" class="formCheckboxField_Standard" id="Has_read_and_understands_disclaimer" tabindex="16" value="Yes"  />
