Entering www.padronius.com site
You are not required to register or identify yourself in any form, shape or manner in order to enter
or move about the www.padronius.com web
site. However, while here, you are on a new territory. This means that, for the time of your staying,
you are subject to the rules set forth here for this domain.
E-mail Policy. What happens to your e-mail address when you provide it to us?
WE ARE AGAINST SPAM. Period. Padronius does not compile e-mail lists. When, and if you do provide
your e-mail address to us, that address is ONLY used to:
Providing your e-mail address to us is a completely voluntary action from your part.
- Inform you of the status of your entry (if you made a submission to the directory)
- Verify the validity of your e-mail (if you sent a business proposal or a résumé)
- Confirm/acknowledge the receipt of your note and send a quote (when you requested a project cost estimate)
- Inform you of changes in service/s, if any, and that only if it directly concerns your directory listing, ad or project under development.
In order to avoid e-mail addresses being extracted
from directory listings by automated computer programs and robots that
crawl/spider the web with this mission, Padronius does not publish e-mail
addresses in the directory listings, even if you provide it and ask us to.
At this time Padronius does not publish a newsletter.
So, you will not receive from us regular service updates, advertisements,
offers or notifications. If you would like to stay on top of what's new
at Padronius we invite you to visit us periodically.
Identifying Purpose. How do you know what the information you submit is used for?
When you submit any information to Padronius you do so
by using a number of dedicated pages. Each page contains clear, specific
instructions and statements that identify the purpose for which the
information you submit is used. All information that you submit is used
ONLY for the purpose that is indicated on the section, or page, that you
use as you do so.
Submitting directory listings: http://www.padronius.com/registrations/
The information that you submit to Padronius Directory is used to be displayed
in our directory with the purpose of advertising your business. This is a free
directory; this means that regular submissions DO NOT GENERATE any money to Padronius. However, for enhanced exposure, you also have the option to subscribe to a
number of paid
You are free to submit any information about your business, as long as it respects
this directory's ethics. If you provided your e-mail
address at the time that you made your submission, you do so on a completely voluntary
basis. When you do, you will receive a confirmation from us when your new entry has
been added to the directory. If, for any reason, your submission is rejected by an
editor, you will not receive a notification.
There are three main reasons for which your submission could be rejected:
submission is in conflict with the directory ethics.
- You did not provide a reciprocal link to this directory.
- You did provide an URL where a reciprocal link to this directory
is supposed to have been placed, but we cannot locate it within 48 hours
from your submission.
Submitting an ad to the directory
When you submit an ad for the directory all information
that you sent to us is only used to create your e-ad and then have it posted
on the appropriate page.
Submitting a request for proposal or project quote
When you submit a request for a project cost, your
information is only used for contacting you in order to send the
proposal. Should you decide not to respond, or accept our proposal,
you will not receive further emails/phone calls from us. We never follow
up on request for proposals or cost inquiries.
Participating in Surveys
(i) In an effort to continuously improve our
services, (ii) for statistical website performance and (iii) for
marketing strategy development purposes, from times to time we
post surveys on our site. If you do run into any of them, your
participation in our surveys is both voluntarily and greatly appreciated!
Padronius surveys WILL NEVER ask you to submit any sensitive
information such as age, race, ethnic origin or color, religion,
marital status, sexual preferences, income, purchase and spending
habits, home address or phone number, weight/height, or any
medical/criminal record info.
Submitting information to the PADRONIUS
Directory is the equivalent of granting us authorization to
publish that information in the directory, providing that both
you, and us observe the rules/terms of the agreement outlined

to us in order to have it made public in our directory pages,
you are, in fact, giving us the consent to do so. If you do
not agree with this statement, please do not use our services.
Submitting a screen capture or company logo
When you make a submission to the directory, you
have the option to add a screen capture of one of your web pages to
your listing. However, before you send us a screen capture, or your
company's logo, check with the corporate communications authority
of your company and make sure that they agree with it. "By attaching
such graphics to your submission, you grant us permission to publish
them in this directory and cannot consider the fact a copyright infringement."
Note: The above underlined statement is attached to your submission,
interpreted as your understanding of the rules and regulations of this
service and, ultimately, it represents your consent. This information
we file in our records as an agreement from your part to follow these
rules. Without your consent to this effect, the submission/s will not go through.
Collecting and Sharing Personal Information
Padronius does not collect personal information. For the purposes described herein,
this directory deals ONLY with business information. If you, and your business, are the
same entity, i.e. operating as a self-employed business person/proprietor, then you will have to
make a judgement as to where you draw the line, in terms of business/personal information, before
you volunteer it to others. Whatever you submit to us, we'll treat it as business information.
Nowhere on this side is a form field that will ask you to provide your:
- weight and/or height
- medical records
- blood type, DNA code
- purchases and spending habits
- race, ethnic origin or colour
- marital status or sexual preferences
- fingerprints or criminal record
- home address and phone number (unless you operate a business from home)
Any such information that you may submit to us, for
any reason and by any means, will be discarded immediately.
Padronius does not compile lists of personal or business information,
nor do we sell, rent, make available, or share any information that you
send to us to any third parties. Of course, this is not valid for the
information that is included in the directory listings.
As an advertising vehicle, the directory contains information that you
request to, and is meant, to be made public. As mentioned above, that
is your company's name [which is hyper-linked to the (URL) web address
that you provide in your submission], and the business description.

much information are you required to submit for a directory listing?

required to submit your company's name, your name, your phone number,
your company's web address and a description of your business' services
and/or products. You are also required to submit the URL of a web page
where a reciprocal link has been added and the read and check the

voluntary basis. You can contact us at any time and ask to have your
listing edited! There's no charge to have your listing/s edited, unless
you make a habit of this.

company's name [which is hyper-linked to the (URL) web address that
you provide in your submission], and the business description that
