CATEGORY NAVIGATION

When you submit a listing for inclusion, you agree to abide by the following policies. Failure to understand and follow these instructions may result in the rejection or removal of your listing. It is YOUR responsibility to ensure that your site conforms to these guidelines. Sites not meeting these criteria may be removed without notice and in the case of paid submission where these terms have clearly not been followed, refunds will only be offered on a discretionary basis. .

Content

Websites that promote or contain the following types of content will not be accepted under any circumstances; Furthermore, sites that are found to actively link to third-party sites with such content will also be rejected:
  • Adult / Pornography / Nudity / Indecent Activity
  • Call Girl / Prostitution / Escort Services / Erotic Massage

Should payment have been made for the review of any submissions contained within the subject areas listed above, we reserve the right NOT to offer any refunds whatsoever. Any refunds that may or may not be offered are made at our sole discretion and are non-negotiable.

In addition, due to additional checks we make to protect our visitors, we will accept listings with the following content as paid submissions only:
  • Loans / Credit Cards / Mortgage
  • Pharmaceutical / Pills / Supplements / Medicines (except supplies to the medical industry)
Any site that is found to infringe on, or violate a person's rights, or contain material that promotes/disseminates illegal activities will be reported to relevant authorities.

It should be noted that just because an activity is legal in your jurisdiction, doesn't mean that is in others and may be rejected as a result. We are also constrained somewhat by the Acceptable Use Policies of our payment providers, some of whom would deem us to be breaking their rules if we accepted payments for listings with certain content banned by them. To avoid disappointment, you should therefore ensure that the listing you are submitting complies with the rules of the payment provider you are using, as if we were to get banned for accepting the payment and your listing was subsequently rejected, we would be completely unable to refund.

You are solely responsible for ensuring that the content and activities on your site are in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

To the extent that pharmaceuticals and/or medical devices are offered or promoted on your site, you certify that you are a licensed health care provider or other entity authorised to prescribe, distribute or otherwise deal in such products in the jurisdictions in which they are sold.

Site Availability

We regularly check the availability of listed URL's and as such, sites that are constantly off-line or in an unfinished state may, at our discretion, be temporarily disabled or removed completely from our database and search results. This is done to ensure accurate and reliable results when a user searches our site, as well as protect Page Rank and SERPS placements for both your site and ours. If you expect your site to be off-line for a considerable amount of time, please contact us and we will suspend your site from our listing until you advise us otherwise. Paid submissions will only ever be suspended and can be reactivated at any time by request. However, we will endeavour to contact the submitter of these listings well before any suspension occurs.

Submission Information

Please ensure any information you enter into the submission form is complete and accurate. We will endeavour to correct submission errors for paid listings, but free listings will be rejected if too many errors are evident. Although we do our best to check all submissions, we cannot be held responsible for errors in listings that were made when the form was completed.
  • TITLE : Must be short and concise. For free submissions, this MUST be your official website or business name.
  • URL : For Free listings, this must be a generic (gTLD) or country (cTLD) top-level domain. The only exception to this is for pages that specifically for English language versions. For Paid submissions, sub-level domains and pages are allowable.
  • DESCRIPTION : Your site description should be accurate and concise with no false claims. For example, if you state "We are the cheapest available", then you should make sure you are. Although not prohibited by us, you should avoid quoting prices in your description as your listing would no longer be accurate if your prices change. We reserve the right to remove or disable your submission if it is found that your prices are out of date. While we do accept foreign language submissions, these MUST be be placed in the correct (or closest) regional category for your language.
  • META INFORMATION : When setting custom meta-tags and meta-description, please be aware that these just as important as you main site description.
  • CATEGORY PLACEMENT : You must select the category that most closely represents the subject matter of your website. We do add and amend categories on a regular basis. However, free submissions that have clearly made no effort to locate an appropriate category may be rejected (For example, if a Real Estate site has been place in an Automotive category). Foreign language submissions, MUST be be placed in the correct regional category
  • EMAIL : Your email address must be live and monitored. Upon submission we send you an email that with a link that must be clicked to confirm your listing. Unconfirmed listings will not be accepted and are automatically removed without ever being seen.

Redirection, Rotation & Cloaking

We currently do not accept free submissions that cloak URLs or utilise a general redirection or rotation service. This includes:
  • URL shortening and Redirection Services
  • Masking or cloaking of destination
The above services are allowable for paid submissions, providing that the description supplied represents the page or site that is finally opened.

Location and Regional blocking

We do not accept free submissions that utilise location or region blocking. This includes websites using services that block IP ranges from websites based solely upon their location.

Our directory is a a worldwide general resource and listings in our directory must be available to as wide an audience as possible.

Additionally, when you make a submission, we need to verify your website submission is valid and genuine and contains content that is suitable for a general family audience. If we are unable to access your site due to permissions based errors, or our location and / or IP being blocked, we will be unable to verify your submission and it will not be accepted.

For us to check the validity of your submission, we must be able to access your website's content simply by visiting the URL in a web-browser. We will not complete codes, questions or captchas in order to simply visit and verify a website.

This is becoming an increasingly common problem mainly caused by hosting companies overselling their available bandwidth and forcing sites hosted with them to attempt bandwidth usage restriction by blocking whole regions or IP blocks. To save money, many sites who do this use public databases of regions and IP addresses which usually contain inaccurate data, resulting in blocked users that may want to legitimately use your services, or find out in advance about services in a country that they may be visiting in the future.

We now live in a global economy with cross-border sales and the availability of local delivery addresses for foreign buyers, so blocking entire websites to regions is neither practical or sensible, unless you operate in a very niche arena.

Affiliate / Referral URLS

Affiliate URL's are accepted as paid submissions only.

Submission Removal or Alterations

If you are a registered user, you can request free removal of your listing at any time by request, or by using the removal tool found by using the link shown with every listing, providing valid and verifiable ownership data has been provided.

You should understand that removal by any means other than our online removal tool could take up to 60 days for the listing to be removed. The online tool provides immediate removal if the data you provide is correct.

We do NOT, under ANY circumstances, accept requests for removal of links via our contact form, due to the high amount of non-authorised removal requests that we have received from business competitors. Any removal requests MUST either be requested from the email used at the time of submission, an email from the SAME domain as the submitted website, or via the submit form removal option. In the case of paid submissions, contact from the original paying email address will also suffice.

If you remove a paid submission, we cannot offer any refunds, unless a genuine error has occurred. We may, at our sole discretion, offer you a refund or the opportunity to submit a new listing for free.
