Suppliers Directory

The suppliers listed in the "Suppliers Directory" ("the Directory") that are members of NaCSBA are organisations that actively support the self/custom build sector. However, these organisations have not been vetted by NaCSBA and NaCSBA does not endorse these companies in any way. Nor will NaCSBA be held responsible for the content that is held on any third party websites listed.

By submitting information via the "the Directory 'Listing Entry page'" ("Listing Entry"), you will only advertise your services as a supplier to the self and custom build sector.

If you choose to answer 'Yes' to the question "Are you a NaCSBA member?" when submitting information via the Listing Entry, your NaCSBA membership will be subsequently verified before publication of your listing. If, upon verification, you are found not to be a NaCSBA member, you will be liable to receive an invoice for a full year's membership.

Users of the Listing Entry must not submit offensive content; this includes content that contains offensive language, overtly sexually explicit content, is unlawful, threatening, libelous, abusive, harmful, bigoted, racially offensive, obscene or harassing. Further, users must not publish content that encourages behaviour that may constitute a criminal offence, result in civil liability or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, national or international law or regulation. Whilst the website aims to moderate all content, the website does not guarantee that offensive or inappropriate material will be immediately removed or deleted from the Directory. Failure by the website to remove or delete offensive or inappropriate content does not waive our right to remove or delete offensive or inappropriate content in subsequent or similar cases.
