(3) Our directory
We welcome business entries to our directory.
You may submit an entry by creating a profile and following the process set out on the website for the chosen level of entry. The different levels of entry and payment options are described on the website and the terms relating to the different levels are set out below. You will have the opportunity to identify and correct input errors prior to making your entry by accessing your profile using your user name and password.
- If you wish to make a directory entry, you will first be asked to set up a profile and choose a user ID and password. You will then be able to login into your profile and make and amend your entry in accordance with the particular level of your entry for which you have paid.
- Your entry will be individually reviewed within 2 working days following receipt of confirmation of payment.
- Your directory entry must comply with the “acceptable use” and “entries” conditions below.
- You must keep your directory entry up-to-date.
- You must not include links in your entry which are dead, which link to websites that are “under construction”, mirror websites, websites that are identical or very similar to websites already in our directory, made-for-AdSense websites, or websites the content of which consists wholly or mainly of affiliate links. You must not submit the same website to our directory more than once (even if the URL is different).
- You must ensure that your user ID and password are kept confidential. You must notify us immediately if you become aware of any unauthorised use of your user ID or password or your profile. You are responsible for any activity arising from the use of your user ID and password, and may be held liable for any losses of us or others arising from that use. You must not use any other person's user ID and password to access our website, unless it is for legitimate business purposes, i.e. to allow more than one user to manage the business entry in the directory. We may disable your user ID and password in our sole discretion without notice or explanation.
