Picture / Photo quality guideline
Pictures / Photos uploaded by businesses for their company profile or business listings should look professional. Good quality pictures / photos actually benefit company profile and business listings and make them stand out. Business listings with good quality pictures will also result in nice thumbnails in the business search result and will attract much more visitors. If we receive public complaint regarding your picture / photo quality issues or if we notice such pictures / photos are far below standard by random manual check, we reserve the right to delete your account or related business listings or both from our system.
Banner quality guideline
For businesses who order / purchase top banners, banner quality should be observed. In general banner design should look professional as opposed to ugly, picture / wordings in the banner should not be offensive in nature. The overall colour / feel should match our webpage design and won't interfere too much with other contents on our webpage. We reserve the right to ask business to change / modify banner design and resubmit the top banner from their account if we receive user complaint / report or if we notice such banner by manual review. You give us consent we may remove / replace such banner from our end if you don't agree with our opinion or assessment even if you have already paid the top banner and the banner space has not expired yet. We may keep unused credits in your account for future use or for alternative products / services from our platform where applicable but it's not guaranteed. In general it will be handled case by case.
Free Listing after trial period
For most service categories businesses enjoy first month free trial listing after submission. After the first month trial period businesses should apply to us to become a standard member or upgrade to Gold / Silver member. Alternatively we may ask certain business to upgrade to Gold / Silver member or pay a standard member fee after the free trial period. If they are not happy with the free listing and decide not to continue to use our platform they should delete the free listing via the admin control panel by themselves or ask our technical department to do so.
Third party payment gateway
For security reason, we utilize third party payment gateway (mainly PayPal and Australian National Bank payment gateway) to process credit card / PayPal payment for businesses using our advertising services or upgrading their company / business listings. We don't store credit card details in our system. All transactions will be handled by those third party payment gateways directly which are among the leading and most secure in the financial industry. We can assure that all financial transactions and payment processing are protected and secured.
Please note refund is generally not available to businesses in cases of changing mind, making mistakes during purchasing, removing ads or deleting / deactivating business listing / company profile prematurely (before expiry of ads), account lock / deactivation, etc, in particular if you deactivate your account or business listings by yourself, or if your account is suspended / locked due to security breach or under request from law enforcement agency in your country or we deem you have violated our terms and conditions of service or your account activity is suspicious and already interrupting the normal operations of other accounts or interfering the whole system.
Refund is only considered in cases of system breakdown, technical error / glitches or operation interruption from third party payment gateways. It's rare and case by case and in most cases we will offer similar products and services or account credits to replace / utilize such refund.
Data storage and disclosure
Bestong Data Service P/L utilizes worldwide data servers and data centres from our service providers / partners, as such, data within these data servers and data centres may be subject to local law governance of the specific country. Our service providers / partners may have their law obligations regarding data storage and disclosure in their own country.

Auto-Deletion of Inactive Account / Very Old business listings
As part of the house keeping procedure, business accounts which are not accessed / logged in within 3 years time will be deemed as inactive and will be deleted automatically by the system. By deleting the account, all data / pictures / company profile / business listings associated with the account will be deleted as well automatically. For very old business listings more than 3 years old since the last update (or the first uploaded date, whichever is later), system will delete these business listings automatically from business accounts. You have acknowledged that you are aware of these house keeping measures of the system and you have given us consent that Bestong Data Service P/L will not be liable for any data loss due to this auto-deletion procedure by the system.
Claim of Account
For security reason and to protect business accounts, losing user name / login email is a serious matter which will prevent you from accessing your account anymore. As a last resort, you can send an account claim request to us, which is a lengthy and very strict procedure. We generally require your company's registration no. and office contact person's name to match in our system. We may also need to call you personally to verify your identity. Only after you have passed our verification procedure successfully, we then are able to reveal the user name / login email details to you. There is an expensive fee involved in this procedure as it requires our manual investigation. Paying the application fee will not guarantee you will regain your account if you can't pass our verification process and this application fee is not refundable. We urge all businesses to keep their user names / login emails securely. However, you can create a new account anytime if necessary.
As the verification procedure is not perfect and we may make mistakes during the verification process. You agree and give us consent that in cases of mistakes which result in unauthorized reveal of your user name / email address to the wrong person and your account has been accessed by unauthorized person, Bestong Data Service P/L will not be liable for such incidents and you should inform us immediately once you have noticed such security breach. Bestong Data Service P/L will put every effort to avoid such incident from happening although we understand that human errors sometimes are hard to be foreseen or be prevented.
