Who we do business with
We firmly adhere to laws in countries where we do business, and welcome everyone abiding by those legal restrictions to be our customers - paid or free, in all but a few very exceptional circumstances:
- The customer is engaging in illegal or unlawful behavior.
- The customer is encouraging violence or discriminating against legally protected groups.
In these cases, we may choose not to do business with the customer.
Sanctioned countries and companies
US laws mean we may also be prohibited from working with certain companies, due to ongoing US sanctions. In this case we do not have discretion - we are banned from working with these companies entirely.
If you need to check if a particular company appears on a US sanctions list, you can use the US Treasury's Sanction Search. In particular, you should be mindful of companies that sign up which are based in the following territories:
- Central African Republic
- Democratic Republic of the Congo
- Myanmar (formerly Burma)
- South Sudan
US sanctions mean that we are not allowed to offer services at all to any companies based in:
- North Korea
