In certain circumstances, we may share your material with other trusted organisations but only those who have a direct connection with The Suffolk Business Directory. After posting or emailing your material to the website, you continue to own that material, and you continue to have the right to use your material in any way you choose. Please choose carefully any information you post on the website, as it will be available for public viewing.

By providing any material to the website, and for us to be able to use it, you confirm that:

We may need to contact you for administrative purposes or to make checks on your material. If you do not want to grant us the permission set out above on these terms, please do not provide any material to the website.

Listing on The Business Directory

All free listings will remain free for an indefinite period, unless it is agreed by you to upgrade the listing.

The prices and the terms of payment for a listing upgrade and entry in The Business Directory are displayed at all times on this website.  A listing for one company cannot be substituted for a listing for another. Subscribers can cancel their subscription at any time by contacting us, with termination taking effect from the end of the validity period covered by the last annual payment made. For instances where a subscriber requires a listing to be removed immediately, please contact us. A refund for the remaining subscription period will not be offered.

Age restriction – there is no minimum age for owning a company, but you cannot be one of its directors until you are 16. A company needs to have at least one director and a company secretary, so you would have to arrange for someone old enough to fill those positions until you are old enough, then you would be allowed to list this business on The Suffolk Business Directory.

Subscribers

Your dealings with subscribers or Companies and any entity whatsoever as found through this Directory and this Service are solely between you and such Company, Partnership or entity. You agree that we will not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of such dealings or as the result of the presence of a listing on this Service.
