Terms and Conditions of Use|
We have taken every effort to design UK Insurance Index to be useful, informative, helpful and honest. Hopefully we’ve accomplished that — and would ask that you let us know if you’d like to see improvements or changes that would make it even easier for you to find the information you need and want.
All we ask is that you agree to abide by the following Terms and Conditions. Take a few minutes to look them over because by using our site you automatically agree to them. Naturally, if you don’t agree, please do not use the site. We reserve the right to make any modifications that we deem necessary at any time. Please continue to check these terms to see what those changes may be! Your continued use of the UK Insurance Index Web site means that you accept those changes.
Thanks for visiting!

(4) Our Directory
The UK Insurance Index directory is a whole-internet directory that allows free basic listings and allows you to create a sponsor account to pay for priority sponsored listings that will appear at the top of their category(-ies). Inclusion in the UK Insurance Index Directory is not guaranteed and is subject to the terms listed below, and at the editors discretion. You may choose to submit your site through our "Add Your Site" link from any of our directory pages. You will receive a confirmation e-mail after you submit your link. It is important to follow the link in this e-mail by cutting the link and pasting into your browser window as soon as possible to confirm your link. It will then be considered for inclusion in our directory. This e-mail will also have a link where you can pay if your link is a business or commercial link.
You may create a sponsor account and sponsored links by following the "Priority Listings/Advertising" links from any of our directory pages. Response times for considering links may vary, depending on how many links we have received. Sponsored listings get first consideration, followed by other paid listings, and then free listings. Links are reviewed and added on business days, excluding weekends and holidays, unless the review staff chooses to work at those times. If your site offers services on a subscription basis, you must provide UK Insurance Index a password or subscription ID, which will be used solely to review your site and evaluate whether your site meets our listing criteria.
You will have the opportunity to identify and correct input errors prior to making your submission by reviewing the details you have entered into the submission form.
All submissions to our directory must meet the following basic criteria:
Your directory submissions must comply with the “acceptable use” and “submissions” provisions below.
- The listing title must start with your business or site name with a short descriptive statement following it.
- The site must clearly define its purpose, products, and/or services.
- Site descriptions that are not objective and contain phrases like "Coolest site on the web" will be edited. We reserve the right to edit any description.
- The site must not appear in the Directory under a different URL unless it is linking to a different insurance product or service by the same site.
- You must not submit to our directory incomplete websites, websites that are “under construction”, mirror websites, websites that are identical or very similar to websites already in our directory, made-for-AdSense websites, or websites the content of which consists wholly or mainly of affiliate links. You must not submit the same website to our directory more than once (even if the URL is different).
- The site must be up and running at all times.
- We do not accept adult sites, sites that focus on adult products, sites that promoted discrimination or hatred based on sex, creed, sexual orientation, or race or ethnicity.
- We cannot re-review all the sites in our directory at all times. Because of this, a site with links to -- for example -- adult sites may inadvertently appear in our directory. We make no warranties on the content of sites in our directory. If we do find a site has changed and is no longer in compliance with our listing criteria we may remove the listing from our site immediately with no refunds of basic listing fees.
- The site must be in the English Language or have an English version available.
- You will be subscribed to our email newsletter and email list for link holders in our directory. If you would like to unsubscribe, change your email preferences, or subscribe to additional email lists, you may do so by following the instructions in the footer of any email you receive from our email list.
- The person/company submitting the site must submit a valid name/company name and valid e-mail address so that we can contact you. Sponsors or sites with recurring listing fees must also submit a valid address/phone number.
- Links on the site must function properly.
If you make a sponsored directory submission, you will be asked to choose a user ID and password. You must ensure that your user ID and password are kept confidential. We may disable your user ID and password in our sole discretion without notice or explanation. You must keep your directory submissions up-to-date using our website interface.
Your directory submission will be individually reviewed within 7 days of receipt for a free listing and 24 hours for a sponsored paid listing.
(5) Free Submissions
Insurance sites may be added to our directory for free, as long as they are in compliance with our listing policies. Free listings do not include a logo and do not get as high of a priority for consideration for inclusion in our directory as Featured Listings, although we aim to review and add all sites as soon as we can. You may upgrade your free listing to a Featured Listing at any time you wish.
Our directory allows you to make free submissions of insurance websites, subject to the minimum listing criteria above.
We may delete free directory submissions at any time in our sole discretion with or without notice to you.
(6) Paid Submissions
You may choose to submit a Sponsored Listing for any insurance site, as long as it meets our listing criteria above. Sponsored listings will appear before other listings in their category and may appear in more than one category. Sponsored listings include a logo or picture if you choose. UK Insurance Index reserves the right to resize your logo if it is deemed too large, or to request a different picture if we feel that your picture is not appropriate for our directory for any reason.
Our current charges for Featured Listings are published on the link submit page and on your advertiser account home page. After you create a sponsored listing account, you can choose from several packages in amounts of £10.00 and up, with packages over £100 having bonuses. After you have paid for your package and your payment has been confirmed by UK Insurance Index, you may create as many listings as you would like within your sponsor account and choose to pay per click, per impression, or per day. Sponsored listings are subject to approval by UK Insurance Index based on our listing criteria the same as any other listing. Funds that have been used are non-refundable. Unused funds in your sponsor account may be refunded within 30 days of purchasing the advertising package. Remaining funds in your sponsored listing account will be refunded to you via the same method that you used to pay. Funds in a sponsored listing account will not be refunded as long as there are remaining listings in the account. You may edit the way you choose to pay (i.e. per click, per impression, or per week) at any time.
You must pay to us the submission charges in respect of a submission in advance, in cleared funds, in accordance with the instructions on our website. We may vary submission charges from time to time by posting new charges on our website. However, such variations will not affect submissions that have already been paid for.
