Our policy allows you to choose what kind and how much information you provide to us and to control how we use this information. We are committed to protecting your privacy and to providing you with the very best service, allowing you to control your privacy and giving you the means to voice any questions or concerns you may have.

Infringement Claims (DMCA)

Published content contains external links to other websites and social media platforms that are completely independent of Pure Local. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, please send your legal notice to a directory agent for copyright claims or any other property infringement(s).

Legal Disclaimer

Content available on the directory may contain features and functionalities that may link you or provide you with access to third-party content which is completely independent of Pure Local, including websites, directories, servers, networks, systems, information, and databases, applications, software, programs, products, and the Internet as a whole. Your interactions with organisations and/or individuals found on or through the service, and any other terms, conditions, warranties, or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such organisations and/or individuals. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with any of these third parties.

Removal Of Customer Reviews

We operate under Australia's Competition and Consumer Act 2010, which is in place to keep a fair review environment for both businesses and consumers. We understand that incorrect, defamatory, and libelous reviews have become commonplace on the internet so we provide the tools to arbitrate customer reviews and remove them when required. If a directory staff member moderating a review deems it as inappropriate, unfair, or suspicious, it will be removed before final publication.

Payment for Premium Services

If you purchase any services that we offer for a fee, either on a one-off or subscription basis you agree to pay the applicable fees, as they become due. Your obligation to pay fees continues through to the date you cancel your subscription. All charges are refundable on a case-by-case basis. You acknowledge that our paid features are subject to our terms of use and any additional terms provided to you when you apply for a paid service.

Your Personal Information

The Australian business directory and its associated marketing platforms will only use the personal information you have chosen to provide us for the purpose for which you provided it. Some websites and advertisement platforms that have links on our site may collect personal information about you when you access or utilize those links. We do not control the collection or use of such information, and the practices of those advertisers are not included in this privacy policy. We assume no responsibility for the information and content located on third-party sites. Information is collected from you primarily to make it easier and more rewarding for you to use our online directory. Depending on the service you are accessing, you could be asked to provide personal information such as your name, contact details, including email and website address. It is entirely your choice whether to respond to these questions or not.

Local Business Listings

If you are a local business, you acknowledge that by submitting a listing to the online directory that :

  • you are a director of the company, the business owner, or have authority to speak directly on behalf of the company director or business owner
  • you are legally responsible for everything you submit and indemnify us against any claim in law, equity, or otherwise which may arise from you posting any content on the directory
  • all information you submit is correct, accurate to the best of your knowledge, and that you agree to its publication without conditions
  • you will be held responsible for the accuracy of all data that you submit
  • you are the rightful and legal owner of any trademark, logo, or other insignia that you provide for publication

Content Duplication

No part of the "PureLocal.com.au" domain may be copied, reproduced, or transmitted in any form or by any means without the prior written permission of both the material's copyright owner and PureLocal staff. While efforts are taken to maintain up-to-date information at all times, no responsibility is accepted for incorrect information contained in the business directory.

Business Listing Removals

The directory exclusively lists Australian businesses and companies. Before a listing is approved for publication on the directory it is manually screened for accuracy and correct information. If a business listing has been removed, it will be due to one (or more) of the following reasons: spam was detected, submitted business information was incorrect, activation was not completed, and/or the business receives a large number of negative reviews without arbitrational response. If your business has closed down or ceased trading, it will be removed. If your business has resumed trading following a closure period, we'll review your request and process your account within 2 business days.

Termination Of Directory Service

You agree that we, in our sole discretion, have the right to delete or deactivate your account, block your email or IP address, or otherwise terminate your access to or use of the directory, immediately and without notice, and remove and discard any content within the service, for any reason, including, without limitation, if Pure Local believes that you have acted inconsistently with our terms of use. You agree that we shall not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your access to the service. Further, you agree not to attempt to use the Service after said termination.

PureLocal Staff Moderation

Staff are employed to moderate all online content posted publicly on the Australian directory to ensure correct business information is listed (such as contact phone numbers, store addresses, etc). They also moderate reviews before they are published to ensure that false, incorrect, or defamatory content is not made public. No employee is to remove or manipulate a customer review before or after it is published. Any review processed by an employee of Pure Local must be an experience based on true events. Employees do not review any business where there is a potential conflict of interest.
