DESCRIPTION OF nbb SERVICE
nbb Suggest A Site is a fee-based expedited service provided by nbb to consider your web site for inclusion in nbb main directory of web sites located at nbb. Inclusion in the Directory is not guaranteed. If your site is rejected, you will receive a refund.
In order for nbb to consider your site for inclusion in the Directory, you must submit a valid credit card number as part of the registration form. You agree that your credit card will be charged the then current, applicable NON-REFUNDABLE fee for initial consideration for nbb. If your site is included, you agree that after one year, your credit card will be charged the Recurring Annual Fee for further review and continued inclusion in the nbb Directory. nbb, however, reserves the right to remove your site if it fails to meet the minimum criteria.
IT IS THE APPLICANT’S RESPONSIBILITY TO KEEP CREDIT CARD INFORMATION CURRENT.
NOTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT OBLIGATES nbb TO LIST, LINK TO, ACCEPT OR OTHERWISE HOST YOUR SITE ANYWHERE ON nbb OR IN THE DIRECTORY. IN ADDITION, IF YOUR SITE IS ACCEPTED, NOTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT OBLIGATES nbb TO PLACE YOUR SITE WITHIN A SPECIFIC CATEGORY OR SUBCATEGORY OF THE DIRECTORY, OR TO PROVIDE ANY COMMENTS OR ANNOTATIONS WITH THE LISTING OF YOUR SITE.
MINIMUM SITE CRITERIA
All web sites submitted to nbb must meet the following minimum criteria:

* If the site is a commercial web site, the official business name must be visible to any visitor to that site;
* The site must clearly define its purpose, products, and/or services;
* The site must not already appear in the Directory;

* The site must not contain any parts under construction;
* All links on the site must work (and must link to relevant content);
* The site must be in the English language (or have an English version available);

SELECTION AND LISTING
nbb reserves the right to decide whether, where, and how a site is listed in the Directory. If nbb accepts your site for inclusion in the Directory, nbb will consider your preferences, but reserves the right to list your site in any category or subcategory as nbb deems appropriate, in its sole discretion. Once nbb accepts a site for inclusion in the Directory, that site shall be treated as any other listing in the Directory. nbb reserves the right not to include any specific keywords, comments, or annotations with the listing of a site in the Directory.
nbb also reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to remove your site from the Directory, move the listing to a different category or subcategory, and change or remove any keywords, comments, or annotations at any time, for any reason, including but not limited to, a change in the nature, business, goods, or services or content available on the site.
nbb will contact Applicant by email describing whether the site has been accepted or rejected. If the site is rejected, Applicant is entitled to request one reconsideration, or appeal, of the site at no additional charge by sending an email to the address provided by nbb. nbb must receive the Applicant’s email within thirty days from the date that nbb transmits the rejection email to the Applicant. If the request is timely received, nbb will again review the Applicant’s site and will then notify Applicant of its final decision regarding including the site in the Directory. If nbb reaffirms its denial of the site, no further appeals or submissions will be considered.
If nbb accepts a suggested site, Applicant is entitled to request one reconsideration of the placement of the site, comment fields, title, etc, at no additional charge by sending an email to the address provided by nbb. nbb must receive the Applicant’s email within thirty days from the date that nbb transmits the acceptance email to the Applicant. If the request is timely received, nbb will again review the Applicant’s site and will then notify Applicant of its final decision regarding the site.
Comments moderation is only done by nbb
If you wish to discontinue participation in the nbb web directory program, you must send a notice to nbb. Please state that you wish to withdraw your site from nbb. To avoid your credit card being billed for the Recurring Annual Fee, requests for withdrawal must be received by nbb at least five (5) business days before the end of the year that you intend to be your last year of participation. The “end of the year” is defined as 365 days from the date that your web site was added to the nbb Directory as noted on the confirmation emailed to you at that time. Once nbb receives such notification from you, your participation in the nbb program will cease and your listing will be removed at the end of the year. If you request that your listing be removed before the end of a year for which you have pre-paid the Recurring Annual Fee, you agree that nbb will not be required to refund any portion of such fee.
nbb maintains information about Applicant on nbb servers, including but not limited to Applicant’s registration information. Applicant agrees that nbb may use such information in aggregate form for marketing or other promotional purposes. Applicant agrees that nbb may disclose such information in the good faith belief that such action is reasonably necessary: (a) to comply with the law or legal process; (b) to enforce this Agreement; or (c) to protect the rights or interests of nbb or others; provided, however, that nothing in this section shall impose a duty on nbb to make any such disclosures.
nbb may contact Applicant regarding nbb web directory services using the Applicant’s email address provided during the registration process (or as updated by Applicant).
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND LIABILITIES
nbb LIABILITY TO APPLICANT SHALL NOT, FOR ANY REASON, EXCEED THE AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID BY APPLICANT TO nbb UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.
