UK based companies and websites submitting themselves for inclusion in this directory acknowledge that they are not violating any laws in offering, or advertising, their products and services. Companies and websites based overseas are welcome to submit themselves for inclusion in our directory, but in doing so they acknowledge that we are providing them with the means to access a UK audience, and also that the 'Governing Law and Jurisdiction' terms outlined below apply. They also acknowledge that they are not violating any international or country specific laws and that Really Useful Websites Limited accepts no liability in this regard.

You agree to be fully responsible for any claim, expense, liability, losses and/or costs (including legal fees) incurred which arises from any infringement of these terms and conditions by you.
Really Useful Websites reserves the right to change any of these terms and conditions without notice or liability and your use of the Website will be deemed as acceptance of these changes. We advise you to regularly check these terms and conditions in order to ascertain if any such changes have been made.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITYUnder no circumstance will Really Useful Websites Limited be liable to you for any indirect, special, or consequential loss or damages or for any loss of business, revenue, profits, or data in relation to your use of the Website.
GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTIONThese terms and conditions are governed by the laws of England and you agree to be bound exclusively by the jurisdiction of English courts without reference to rules governing choice of laws.
SUBMISSION OF WEBSITESWe reserve the right to accept or decline websites for inclusion in the Website, paid for or free, and, at any time, to amend any of the content of a listing as we see fit. We also reserve the right to change the criteria for inclusion in a category and sub-category, to amend the categories and sub-categories and to remove categories and sub-categories from the Website. This may change the categories and sub-categories that your listing appears within and, although unlikely, if your listing no longer has a relevant category and/or sub-category to appear within, we may remove your listing from the Website accordingly.
We may also withdraw a listing from the directory at any time if we decide it is no longer appropriate, or where you are in breach of our terms and conditions.
For the avoidance of doubt, if a paid-for package has been purchased, although unlikely we may also withdraw such listings from the directory at any time for the reasons stated above or for any other criteria that are introduced or changed by us. We also reserve the right to change the format and/or design and/or content and/or trading name/domain name of the Website at any time.
In all such circumstances outlined above, no refund of monies paid to us will be made and in submitting your website for inclusion in the Website, you agree to these terms and conditions.
When you pay for a package, you are paying for us to review the website concerned to assess its suitability for the Website, to review and upload your listing and to check and switch on various features applicable to the given package at that time.
If your website is deemed unsuitable by us, we will let you know. In most circumstances we will refund your payment, though we reserve the right to keep all or part of your payment to cover our administration expenses.
Once your website and listing has been approved and subject to your website remaining applicable and you adhering to our Terms & Conditions, your listing can then remain in the Website free of charge for up to one year.
Various features apply to our packages, and these are detailed on the 'Submit A Site' page. These include, but are not limited to, the facility to have a boxed and coloured listing with logo, listings appearing randomly in a 'Featured Listings' section on page one of each category/sub-category in which a listing appears and/or the A-Z section, the facility to make amendments to listings, the review of any such changes by us and the provision of an account/online facilities to manage listings.
As detailed above, the fee we charge is for the initial work we do to check and upload listings, with all other features applicable to listings provided free of charge. As such, these are subject to change or withdrawal at any time by us, without compensation, and we also reserve the right to make additional charges where there is excessive use of the listing update facilities and/or where amendments to listings are submitted to us.
As you are paying us to undertake the necessary work to approve and upload your listing, our work begins when you submit your listing to us. The expiry date for the twelve months in which listings remain in directory will therefore be twelve months from the date at which you submit and pay for your listing, although we will generally reset this to twelve months from the approval date, if there is a delay in approving listings due to a backlog of work our end. If you do not make an online payment, then we reserve the right to upload your listing only once your payment has been received. In such circumstances your package will expire one year from the date at which you first submitted your listing to us, as this involves more work our end.
It is a condition of your inclusion in our directory that we review your website and listing on an annual basis. Therefore, when your listing reaches its expiry date it will be hidden from the directory, and you will be required to pay for this review and for the listing to be switched back on. The package price payable will be the price advertised on the Website at the time that your package expires. If you do not renew your paid-for package then your listing will remain hidden from the directory.
Once a paid-for package has been taken out, no refunds are available in relation to time remaining, should you decide to withdraw your listing.
If you decide to upgrade a listing from one paid-for package to another, then you are taking out a new package which requires that we undertake the same procedures as for new paid-for packages, and you will therefore be required to pay the full price of your new package from the date at which you upgrade. The upgraded package will then require renewal at its expiry date, which will be set using the criteria outlined above. No refunds or discounts will be made in respect of any time remaining on your previous paid-for package.
If you take a package whereby your listing appears in the 'Featured Listings' sections, you acknowledge that no guarantees are made as to how many times your listing will be displayed in these sections. If there are more than a certain number (to be determined by us) of listings in any given category/sub-category, which sign up for the package which includes 'Featured Listings', then these listings will be rotated into the 'Featured Listings' section in turn.
We make no guarantees or warranties in relation to the volume of traffic that will view your listing, nor of the number of people who will click through to your website, nor the appropriateness of any users who click through to your website.
Where your package includes the facility to include contact details, you will supply contact details (telephone number and/or email address) which will be answered in a customer friendly time frame.
We may provide certain packages with the facility to update elements of your listing live, via your account. We check all amendments, but you agree not to change the content of your listing to contain unsuitable material, or to upload any unsuitable images to your logo, where your package allows one. Likewise, you agree not to change your listing to attempt to misrepresent the nature of your business and the products/services you offer/sell.
Misuse of the update facility and/or the uploading of any unsuitable content shall be deemed breach of these Terms and Conditions and we reserve the right to cancel your package (and all other listing packages under your account) with immediate effect should this occur. Your listing(s) will be removed from the Website and no monies will be repayable.
You can also submit changes to other elements of your listing(s) via the contact form on the website. We will review these requests, but reserve the right not to accept or action these requests, unless they are essential for the accuracy of your listing(s), and to charge you to make these changes.
The submission of excessive updates, whether live via your account or via the contact form, will also be considered a breach of these Terms & Conditions. The level of updates that are considered excessive is at our discretion.
As a company, it is a condition of your inclusion in the Website that we hold certain information about your company and that you keep your contact details up to date.
Any element of the information held by us which is classified as "Personal Data" is also protected in accordance with the procedures outlined in the Data Protection Act. We will not share this data with any third party outside of the Really Useful Websites group, unless we have your permission or are required to do so by law.
