Dear Customer,

 

Thank you for contacting us with regards to our guidelines for unblocking websites.

 

We block sites that infringe customer trust i.e. sites that promise our subscribers free gifts & prizes in return for a particular service & do not deliver. We also block sites whose services have the tendency to be abused with no means of catching the offenders e.g. in the case of www.quios.com & www.mtnsms.com, where users were sending messages of unpleasant & wayward nature to mobile subscribers in the U.A.E.

 

Reason:nudity

 

Other sites we block are sites containing pornography & sites whose contents contain issues against Islamic values. In addition, sites that contain issues of objectionable nature that are referred to us by our customers are looked into & then blocked if found damaging.

 

Once again we thank you for contacting us with your query and looking forward to serving you in the future. For any further clarification please contact eCompany Contact Centre.

 

Best regards,
