Membership agreement

The NFC World Knowledge Centre is a service that provides readers with in-depth information on the emerging technologies that are transforming how consumers choose what to buy, who to buy from, and how to pay.

How does this service work?

Our business educates buyers in emerging technology markets and connects them with vendors able to meet their needs. This service is designed for business users, not consumers.

We are able to provide valuable information resources to members free of charge because the cost of creating them is covered by our partners, sponsors and advertisers. These commercial partners receive benefits in exchange for funding this program which may include access to information you provide upon membership sign-up and information about the usage you make of the service.

You are welcome to use the NFC World Knowledge Centre subject to your acceptance of the following conditions:
