Only 360Cities PRO and COMPANY account holders may publish panoramas that are clearly intended to promote a business. The fact that a pano is clearly intended to promote a business does not influence whether it is selected for 360Cities or Google Earth. These two things are judged separately.
You can select whether your panorama promotes a business or not by choosing the appropriate checkbox that appears on the upload / edit / image lists. See how.
Your panoramas can have these statuses:
Review done: Pano does not promote a business.
The review team looked at your panorama and found out that it does not promote a business. You can keep it published even if you don't have a PRO or COMPANY account.
Review done: Pano promotes a business.
The review team looked at your panorama and marked it as promoting a business. If you don't have a PRO or COMPANY account the panorama has been unpublished. You can now upgrade to a PRO account to make it published again or you can leave the image unpublished. If you don't agree with the review team you can always contact us to request a second review (please include links to the pano in question).
Business status doesn't apply
Your panorama was published before the launch of PRO accounts in 2010. You can keep it published even if you don't have a PRO or COMPANY account.
How does the review process work?
Each panorama image you publish on 360cities.net is manually reviewed. PRO and COMPANY accounts can publish any pano, promoting a business or not. Free and PLUS accounts can only publish panos that don't promote a business and they will be asked to upgrade to a PRO account when they try to publish a pano that promotes a business. If your pano is marked as promoting a business by the review team and you don't have a PRO or COMPANY account, the pano is unpublished you are notified via email. Your panorama will stay in the unpublished images list and you can publish it later when you are a PRO or COMPANY.
