  • Company Profile & Listings
    In order for your company to be listed in our database, a user must first complete the company profile request form. During this process a user is required to give their contact information (such as name and e-mail address). Your company contact information is displayed on the web site and used for others to contact the user about the services and/or products they offer.

    Your e-mail address is never publicly displayed on your profile page for security reasons, and to reduce the amount of spam our company members receive. [Older company profiles (from 2001) may have e-mail addresses listed, and therefore are not spam protected.] However, worldwide Gold members are able to contact companies through an online inquiry form.

    By adding your company to our database you agree to receive our bi-weekly newsletter called Profile Index News. Please add the @profileindex.com domain name to your white list, in order to avoid blocking our important messages. You can unsubscribe at any time after receiving our e-mail.
