In a nutshell
- All new Listings will be checked by an editor before the Listing goes live on the Website. This is so we can check that links are working, and proof-read content for spelling & grammatical errors.
- We aim to approve all Listings within 48 hours of receipt, and often much sooner. If there are any problems with the Listing we will contact you on the email address that you provided.
- It is your responsibility to update your Listing should any information change. If you sell/close the business you must inform us immediately by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org
- We reserve the right to reject any Listings that we do not deem appropriate for the site. In this case any money paid would be refunded in full.
- If you wish to cancel your membership at any time you do so in your dashboard at actonnotebook.com at anytime before the renewal period
- If you select recurring monthly membership option, you will be sent a renewal notice 4 days before your membership is due for renewal and payment is taken
- If you cancel a membership half way through a membership period you will not be entitled to refund of the time remaining
