List" has been available free and almost seamlessly online since 1998 but although it
has been very popular, it's users clearly suffer from the fact that it has been open for
everyone in the Internet Community to view.
With the current increased levels of Spam and email address
harvesting, and recent examples of the Contact List being used for these purposes, we have
decided that the database can no longer remain in this insecure mode. It has therefore
been placed behind a Username/Password gateway which we believe will minimise this
This secure feature incurs additional expense for us each
year, in addition to the cost of hosting the website. The £6.00 fee is seen as a
reasonable charge for the benefits that the Contact List offers.
This charge is not an annual subscription - BUT
we reserve the right to possibly make a further charge in two or three years time,
depending on whether the website continues, or whether we can absorb the ongoing costs
that we continue to incur.
At all times, we reserve the right to shut down the
F1staff.com website and withdraw the Contact List database, should it be deemed necessary.
No payments made through the F1staff.com website are
refundable, except in circumstances agreed by us to be exceptional, or when to refuse
refund would be in contravention of PayPal Ltd.'s conditions of service.
