The admins of this forum reserve the right to temporarily or permanently ban, block, or restrict a company from posting, at any time for any reason. 2.

Companies interested in advertising more frequently should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org . Companies violating this rule may be temporarily blocked or banned. 3. Dive companies may not spam users of this forum with emails or private messages. If a user reports that a dive company is exploiting forum information to spam users, that company will be permanently banned. 4. The admins of this site make every effort to vet companies that post on this forum. However we cannot guarantee or make any warranties to the safety or reliability of any company. If we do receive multiple complaints about a company, we will investigate and possibly ban that company from advertising with us.
