Directory Terms & Conditions
Our Privacy, Terms, and Disclaimer Policy outlines the information we collect from visitors, its use, disclosure, and the choices users have in a clear and comprehensive manner. The Pure Local Business Directory of Australia prioritise the protection of your privacy and aim to offer an outstanding user experience.
This policy encompasses a range of critical topics including infringement claims, legal disclaimers, customer review removals, listing removals, premium payments, handling personal data, limitations on duplication, account termination, policy modifications, and moderation protocols.
Infringement Claims (DMCA)
The published content on Pure Local may feature external links directing to various websites and social media platforms, all of which operate independently from our platform. Should you suspect that your work has been reproduced in a manner that violates copyright laws or infringes upon your intellectual property rights, we encourage you to submit a formal legal notice to our directory agent for addressing copyright claims or any other instances of property infringement.
The directory's content may offer features and tools that connect or grant access to third-party content entirely separate from Pure Local. This includes websites, directories, servers, networks, systems, information, databases, applications, software, programs, products, and the broader Internet landscape. Your engagements with organisations or individuals discovered through our service, along with any terms, conditions, warranties, or representations connected to these interactions, remain the sole responsibility between you and the respective entities. We strongly advise conducting your due diligence before engaging in any online or offline transactions with these third parties. It's essential to perform any necessary or prudent investigations before proceeding.
Removal Of Customer Reviews
As part of our commitment to fostering a fair reviewing environment for businesses and consumers, Pure Local adheres to the guidelines set forth in Australia's Competition and Consumer Act 2010. Recognising the prevalence of inaccurate, defamatory, and libelous content on the internet, we provide tools to mediate and eliminate such reviews when necessary. Reviews undergo scrutiny by our directory staff; any content assessed as inappropriate, unfair, or suspicious will be promptly removed before its final publication.
Payment for Premium Services
Your Personal Information
The primary objective of gathering information from you is to enhance your experience and convenience while using our online directory. Depending on the specific service you utilise, you might be prompted to provide personal details such as your name, contact information (including email and website address). Responding to these queries is entirely voluntary and at your discretion. In certain instances, your email address might be disclosed to our affiliated Australian marketing partners. This occurs if you've provided information for an Australian business directory listing. If you prefer that your email remains confidential and is not shared with our marketing partners, kindly notify us via email.
Local Business Listings
If you submit a listing to the directory, you affirm that:
- you are a company director, business owner, or authorised to represent them
- you hold legal responsibility for all submissions and indemnify us from any claims
- all provided information is accurate and publishable without conditions
- you are accountable for the accuracy of all submitted data
- you legally own any provided trademarks, logos, or insignias
The content and materials hosted within the "PureLocal.com.au" domain are protected by copyright and cannot be replicated, reproduced, or transmitted without the explicit written consent of both the copyright owner and the administrative personnel of PureLocal. We uphold a commitment to ensuring the information within our platform is as accurate and current as possible; however, we cannot guarantee the absolute accuracy of all information contained in the business directory. Despite our diligent efforts to maintain accuracy, variations, updates, or inaccuracies may inadvertently occur. Therefore, users are advised to exercise their discretion and verify the accuracy of information as we cannot be held liable for any incorrect or outdated information found within our directory.
Business Listing Removals
The directory is dedicated solely to showcasing Australian businesses and companies. Each listing undergoes a meticulous manual screening process to ensure accuracy and the provision of correct information before being approved for publication on the directory. If a business listing is removed, it is typically due to one or more of the following reasons: detection of spam, inaccurate or erroneous submission of business information, failure to complete activation, or the accumulation of a substantial volume of negative reviews without a corresponding attempt at resolution.
In instances where a business has permanently closed or ceased its operations, the listing is promptly removed from the directory. Conversely, if a business reopens following a period of closure, we encourage the submission of a request for review. Upon receipt of such a request, our team will diligently process the account within a span of 2 business days, ensuring the accurate representation of the business's current status on the directory. This meticulous approach underscores our commitment to maintaining the integrity and accuracy of information while accommodating changes in the operational status of the listed businesses.
Termination Of Directory Service
It's important to understand and agree that we hold no liability towards you or any third party for the termination of access to the service. Moreover, you expressly agree not to attempt to use the service following such termination. This policy is in place to maintain the standards of use and to ensure compliance with our terms, emphasising the importance of adhering to the established guidelines and standards for access and use of our directory.

PureLocal Staff Moderation
Pure Local has dedicated staff responsible for moderating all publicly posted online content on their Australian directory.

In instances where there may be a potential conflict of interest, employees are barred from reviewing any business. This stringent approach ensures the integrity and authenticity of reviews while preventing any biased or conflicting assessments. The policies and responsibilities outlined are in place to maintain the credibility and fairness of reviews posted on Pure Local, affirming the commitment to accurate and unbiased representation of businesses listed on the platform.
