MaarifaHub | Terms and Conditions

The MaarifaHub Directory is intended for Black owned organisations in the UK. Here are our T&C’s in a nutshell:

  • All new Listings will be checked by an editor before the Listing goes live on the MaarifaHub app. This is so we can check that links are working, and proof-read content for spelling & grammatical errors.
  • You may be asked to verify the owner/owners of the organisation you intend to list that we be sure that it is Black Owned. 
  • We aim to approve all Listings within 48 hours of receipt, and often much sooner. If there are any problems with the Listing we will contact you on the email address that you provided.
  • It is your responsibility to inform Maarifacircle should any of your company information change. Please inform us immediately by writing to business@maarifacircle.com
  • We reserve the right to reject any Listings that we do not deem appropriate for the MaarifaHub directory. In this case any money paid would be refunded in full.
  • If you wish to cancel your listing at any time you must notify us in writing to business@maarifacircle.com no later than 7 days before the renewal period.
