EDITORIAL POLICY (updated: 23 September 2017):

We focus on ecotourism, sustainable tourism, green businesses, products, services and news which we consider relevant and compatible. We will not list any website that promotes, directly or indirectly, violence, hatred and discrimination of any type. Personal Membership is not and does NOT constitute a paid listing service and therefore does NOT guarantee a listing of your website; this is at the discretion of the Editors. The text and photo for each listing are produced by the Editors based on information provided in your website and aims to be objective and informative, avoiding superlatives and clichés. We reserve the right to amend/edit all listing elements at any time. Personal Member listings in the Country Guide section generally include one link, one photo (80 x 60 pixels, 5 KB max.), a four-word title and a 50-word description. Personal Member listings in the Eco Directory section generally include one link, a screenshot type image of your website (600 x 450 pixels), a four-word title, a 50-word description and (optionally) a map pinpointing your business address. Members are encouraged to assist us in maintaining a high content quality by not posting offensive, illegal or irrelevant material and by not engaging in advertising of 3rd party products or services not offered directly by their own organisation. Membership should not engage in any form of spamming or flooding, including message and post spamming. We reserve the right to edit or delete posts, articles and comments and to warn, suspend or ban Members who in our view act in a disruptive manner. By joining as a Member you indicate and acknowledge that you have read and accepted our Editorial Policy.
 


PERSONAL MEMBER SUPPORT POLICY (updated: 23 September 2017): 

We provide support to our Personal Members either in writing by email or through a virtual meeting via Skype, Google Hangouts or similar. Each Personal Membership includes 90 minutes of support per 365 days of Membership. Additional support is available at an additional cost. Unused support credits cannot be used in subsequent Membership terms. We try to reply to all requests within 3 working days but complex requests may take longer. From our experience, our web-based support system enables you to explain your request in detail, create a written record and include information that would otherwise be missed, or be time-consuming to obtain. While we make an effort to reply to all queries, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to provide support in every case. We reserve the right to amend our Personal Member Support Policy from time to time by making changes at this page. It is your responsibility to check for changes. By joining as a Member you indicate and acknowledge that you have read and accepted this Member Support Policy.
