Apollo does its best to provide current and accurate information on the website but things sometimes change, and so we may need to update or remove statements and representations made on the website from time to time.

The website will usually be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  Sometimes the website may be unavailable while we conduct maintenance, or for technical or other reasons.

This website may contain links to other websites which are owned by third parties, such as our partners, service providers, and supporters.  These links are provided solely for your convenience and are not an indication that Apollo endorses the products or services that are provided by that website.  Apollo recommends you review the terms & conditions and privacy policy of any third party websites you visit and when accessing third party sites and using those products and services you agree and undertake to do so at your own risk.

  • Dispute resolution

If you wish to raise a dispute concerning another user of our website, please contact our [Help Centre] and we will open a dispute case on your behalf. We note, however, you must first attempt to resolve your dispute with the relevant user directly before contacting our [Help Centre]. Once a dispute case is opened by Apollo, we will collect relevant information from both you and the other user concerning the dispute and will use our reasonable efforts to make a determination.

We attempt to resolve disputes as quickly as possible and will rely on you and the other user to promptly provide all necessary information to resolve the dispute in a timely manner. Our dispute resolution service is, however, non-binding and is a process whereby Apollo will use its reasonable efforts to help facilitate a resolution between users of the website.

You acknowledge and agree that Apollo has no responsibility for: (i) any failure of another user to participate in the dispute resolution process; or (ii) failing to resolve your dispute in a timely manner or to your satisfaction.
