The duty of Exportal Ltd is to publish online, within the Tropicscope tourism directory, one or more web pages, under the www.tropicscope.com domain name for the account of service providers to the tourism and leisure industry of Mauritius for a (renewable) period of one year. Contents of the page(s) to be published are to be supplied by the service providers in electronic format. They are subject to approval by the editors of Exportal Ltd.
In addition to the website, Exportal Ltd may publish contents regarding a service provider's business activity outside the www.tropicscope.com website (e.g. in Blogs, forums, community websites, via e-mails, RSS Feeds, on online maps etc,) in the pure purpose of advertising your business, without seeking prior notice from the service providers.
Each product and service category proposed by a service provider will be described in a set of 2 "mini website" of a maximum of 5 pages plus extra space for special announcements, one set in English, one in French. These pages are designed to contain texts, pictures, videos and other multimedia material technically compatible with the core website.
All pages are limited to 620 pixels in width and although technically unlimited in length, they are designed to contain brief to moderate amount of contents in order to remain user friendly and limit the "size and weight" of each page in order to assure its fast loading of contents and its functionalities.
The layout inside these areas can be adapted to each service provider provided that they are within the limits in width and weight, contain compatible elements and that the design is fully supplied in html format by the service provider. Where no specific layout is required, Exportal Ltd will be pleased to advise and suggest one of the most ergonomic and commercially efficient standard layouts.
The texts and pictures must aim at describing and promoting the services and products, of a service provider.
Exportal Ltd reserves the right not to publish, modify or remove any part or whole of contents which Exportal Ltd considers or has reasonable grounds to suspect that such contents are:
