UKMassageGuide.com specific:

wwwukmassageguide.com is operated in an open and honest fashion as a club for the benefit of the members. Anyone found to be acting in a manner deemed to be outside the spirit of the club or in any way against the interest of the club and its members will be removed and any credits they have accumulated will be forfeited. The Webmasters decision on this will be final.

 

You may not use this website to solicit business from any member for your own advertising directory, co-operative or any other business activity whether advertised as being offered or not. This includes inviting members to join you etc..  If off topic emails are reported, they will be investigated and will most likely result in the deletion of the offending member's details.  Off topic, unsolicited emails will not be tolerated.
 

We will not enter in to correspondence in relation to moderated ratings. False ratings may result in both members being deleted.
 

Financials

Credits purchased are not transferable and full refunds will be considered on a case by case basis, should you wish to contact us regarding any credits purchase matter or refund.
 

Credit or debit card transactions that are charged-back will be disputed to the fullest extent of the law and may involve the disclosure of private information to law enforcement, your bank and/or card issuer as part of that dispute. Customers will be liable for the fees levied against the Site at the banks prevailing rate.
 

Credits returned to you because of unsuccessful auction bids are not transferable and full refunds will be considered on a case by case basis.
 

Members can withdraw earned credits using any of the transfer options provided subject to set thresholds. The amount to be withdrawn will be subject to a service fee of 20%.  The service fee is charged exclusive of tax.  Tax charges on the service fee, if any, will be shown during the withdrawal/transfer process in accordance with the applicable laws. No tax of any kind is taken or charged on the net amount of funds you receive from the site. The amount and type of tax due will be specific to each member and members are encouraged to seek the appropriate advice from a tax professional. The fee helps us keep many features of this website free. Additionally the fee contributes towards our operational costs, fees for accepting credit card payments, sales & marketing expenditure and hosting charges. This percentage charge may change at any time without prior notice.
 Credits can be transferred to UK & EU bank accounts, (that participate in IBAN and will be conducted in Euros), once a minimum level of 100 credits has been accrued. If your bank account is eligible then the required BIC and IBAN numbers will be printed on your bank statement. 
 

Whilst we endeavour to maintain as many payment options as possible we cannot be held responsible for the operation or availability of these systems and your ability to withdraw or use your funds once transferred to them.  You accept the risks associated with each processing method when you specify your desired method of transfer.
 

Credits purchased are held on behalf of the customer in their e-wallet.  Should there be any suspicion of fraud or money laundering the option to refund may be withheld.
