You must only submit sites to the public search belonging to one of the site categories listed. These are currently "personal websites" and "independent websites".
"Personal websites" are defined as websites primarily for an individual's personal (rather than business) use, where the individual owns both the content and the domain (i.e. it isn't on or owned by a centralised platform).
"Independent websites" are defined as special interest websites, i.e. websites about a specific topic or a broad range of topics, which are operated by an individual or group on a largely non-commercial basis, and where the individual or group owns both the content and the domain (i.e. it isn't on or owned by a large commercial entity).
Other categories may be submitted as a Full listing to use the search as a service if the option to exclude from the public search is selected. We reserve the right to modify a Full listing to exclude from the public search if it is not a personal website or indepenedent website.
Full listing owners are free to remove their own sites whenever they wish, and there is a button on the Manage Site page which makes it easy to do so. If a site site has been added via a Basic listing and you would like to see it removed, please Contact Us to explain why you would like to see it removed. There will normally not be an issue doing so, but if we believe this is being abused we reserve the right to not action the request.
Search as a service
If you use the search as a service, you must not put unreasonable load on the Site, e.g. by excessive use of the reindex on demand functionality, or by making very high numbers of API calls. We reserve the right to introduce limits on use in future.
We take uptime very seriously, but cannot guarantee 100% availability.
The Site's servers are currently based in Germany, and governed by the laws of the European Union.
Use of the Site is at your own risk. The Site is provided on an "as is" and "as available" basis. We cannot be held accountable for any form of loss to you through your use of the Site.
