  2. Information collected on this site from registered 'experts' organisations and representatives of the media will only be used for purposes of the implementation of journalistic activity via this site. Use of this material for any other purpose is prohibited.

Refund Policy

This website makes available expert's details of expertise and contact details to media people immediately on registration and online payment. There is no guarantee that an expert will be contacted by a media person in any period of time as this is largely dependent on what happens in the news and what expetise is required by media people at the time however expert details can be recorded by any one of the thousands of registered media people immediately on registration and payment, and kept for future reference. Refunds therefore cannot be provided unless the payment was clearly made on the wrong website in error and Expertsources are contacted within 12 hours of the mistake. Expertsources will however do its best to ensure that the details provided by the expert are displayed on the website and available for media people to find.
