Please submit any working site of interest and relevance to this directory. Sites will be listed, and categorised to make your search easier.
Comments, suggestions and advice are much appreciated.

- Advertising policy
- Legal Notices
Readers can browse or use the search facility - it actually works!
Site owners - always read the guidelines before submitting. If your site doesn't seem to fit - don't worry: if it has something to offer older people, we're interested! So email us, and Suggest A New Category, if you think it will be useful to our target audience.
Currently, we include:
A. Information Sites B. Products C. Services
~ Specifically ~ for Older People
Sites fitting those categories will be listed, and we take a broad view.
We reserve the right to make the final decision on which category a site will be allocated to, plus the right to edit the information displayed in the interests of our visitors.
No fees arerequired for listing a site, and no reciprocal link is required, or even expected (though we're always grateful).
While we want to include as many relevant sites as possible, we reserve the right to decline a submission, plus the right to remove a listed site - for any reason, and reasons will not be stated.
- Clones will not be listed; there must be some unique content. So Sites relying on material taken from other sites will not be included.
- Sites which simply do not work will be dropped if there is no date of relaunch, or sign that life remains.
- Sites consistently largely of marketing vacuity cannot be listed, as they cause vomiting.
Reasons for declining sites or removing them may include threats, legal reasons, persistent spam, abuse or simply inconsistent site function. But we really have no wish to decline or remove any site!
I'm intending to update the site monthly, approximately. I can check all the links in one half hour with Xenu's Link Sleuth, but I hope most of the work will be done by you the visitor, and by site owners. All submitted sites will be visited by a human being, and all working sites that fit the Directory's broad criteria will be added.
"Open Internet" does not mean anarchy; and, of course, I shall be making editorial decisions. But the criteria will be 'commonsense' - and where there is doubt, I'll give the benefit of the doubt to the sites.
Advertisements and affiliate schemes contribute toward the costs of this site. Buttons or Banners may be displayed at the head of the page, or in a page margin.
We currently use Google's Adsense, and have not blocked or refused any advertiser. This should not be taken to suggest we endorse or support any individual advertiser; we have no control or advance information about whose ads will appear. And that's the way we like it!
I regret I cannot include non-English sites, as I do not have the resources to evaluate them.

Copyright matters: I do not expect payment for use of any of this material (c'mon!), and I am happy to admit that I have shamelessly borrowed from all over the web. But I created this page and worked into the night to edit the material and put it all together, and I assert whatever rights I have.
In other words ... If you do copy any or all of it, please give me due credit, and quote the site address too: http://www.oldering.com/
