Members agree to display their own profiles to other members within the Directory and 3P Net takes no responsibility whatsoever for any release of such information to third parties, by other members in the Directory.
The administrators of the Directory approve a Member’s registration, after validating that all mandatory fields have been entered diligently.

However, Members will retain the choice to enable and display the “Title” awarded by the system and tag it to their individual profile.
