Terms Conditions and Refunds


Our refund and returns policy is valid for 30 days. For a directory listing, if 30 days have passed since your purchase, we are unable to offer refunds.

Users who have claimed their directory listing are responsible for maintaining and updating their directory entry through their dashboard. The PLG is not able to process updates to the contents of claimed listings manually. If you are unable to login to your dashbaord please first try resetting your password and following the instructions to update your entry.

The Photonics Leadership Group (PLG) reserves the right to remove offensive or inappropriate content in listings without offering a refund and to decline future listing requests from users posting such content.

Directory entries where refund requests have been made will be returned to the Free Directory listing level.

To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase.

The content of claimed directory listings remains the responsibility of user who has registered control of that entry. The copyright of content uploaded by registered listing owners remains with the registered directory user.

Removing a directory entry

The UK Photonics directory has been compiled by the PLG to list all the organisations manufacturing photonics based products, providing services directly based on, or specifically for the photonics industry and undertaking research and training in photonics.

We define photonics as the processing detection transmission and generation of light by any means for any application.

If you feel your organisation does not undertake any photonics related activity and has no internal expertise in light based technologies and would like to be removed from the directory, even as a free listing, please contact us, with the name of your organisation as it appears in the listing.
