Contact Site is not available to non-members of MyFashionUnited and that your Contact Site is not traceable for search engines on the Internet. You may change this setting at any time and thus make your Contact Site visible to a larger audience. If you choose to do so, you can strongly increase your presence on the Internet and at the same time considerably enlarge your availability for potential business contacts.
(5) Forums & Groups
Please note: In the event a forum is specified as "public" on the MyFashionUnited Website and in the event the moderator has not restricted the access rights to the forum, all contributions of MyFashionUnited Members to such a forum can be read by all other MyFashionUnited Members, and these contributions are then also accessible to non-members of MyFashionUnited on the Internet without any restrictions.
