Terms and Conditions for site membership

These Terms and Conditions may change as the site develops. All members will be notified when changes are made.


This site is intended to be used to promote Smithfield as a whole. Legitimate local businesses are welcome to sign up and use the pages for this purpose, thus becoming ‘members’ of the site. The site may not be used to promote an individual or an individual's interests in an unfair way by, for example, spurious claims about services offered. It is important that all members respect the spirit in which the site was established and the intention that it be used for the good of everyone in the town.

Related services and activities: interpretation

The 'Related services and activities' that a business may list in addition to their main category are strictly limited to services and activities personally offered by the owner of that business. For example if you are an accommodation establishment you may not list 'Golf' as a subsidiary ‘Activity’ offered by your business site/pages unless you, personally, as the accommodation business owner, have golfing equipment and you personally take people out to the golf course.

If you are not an accommodation establishment owner, but a professional golfer or golfing instructor, you should list this as your main business category (not as an ‘Activity’).

If you offer a service to your guests, for example like booking dinner for them, arranging that they get the key for the tennis courts so that they can play a game there, directing them to the nearest ATM or collecting them from the airport in Bloemfontein, this may be mentioned on your main business page as a service you offer, but it may not be listed in ‘Related services and activities’. General ‘activities’ associated with Smithfield (like health services, museums, schools etc) are listed and written about in other sections of the site.

This interpretation will be strictly applied by the Webteam.
