GRADES OF MEMBERS
The main feature of HAMAFZA unique initiative is based on rewarding good people and businesses for their quality work or competitive prices delivered to members and/or societies. For that reason a specific multi-level structure is designed that grades qualification of members and their associated generated information by clear criteria.
On that basis, members with higher grades shall have access to more valuable information and opportunities. What is designed for this phase one for rewarding higher grades is noticeable and it will expand way more, as we grow in next phases.
|Grade of Members
|Level and Extent of Access to Information
|Equivalent Grade of Accessible Information
|Definitions and Performance
|Admins and HAMAFZA Operations Managers
|It shall include personal information of members that according to laws of the relevant country or as required by the member in their registration forms etc. are considered as confidential. All personnel of HAMAFZA are strictly bound by law and strict HAMAFZA procedures to protect that information confidentially and trustworthily. HAMAFZA has a zero tolerance policy for any misconduct or negligence of its employees in this regard.
|Grade 1, Public or Guest users
|Public by definition here, includes everyone who is present in the virtual world (WEB) from any place in the world. The identity of those users shall not be controlled by HAMAFZA and they will have access to G1 (Grade 1) information only.
|Grade 1 information
|Grade 1 information is readily available to Public or Guests without a need for registration or logging in. However these G1 users or guests DO NOT see Members page, Forums page, members’ profiles (except set open by the member), private posts, and other graded information; and they cannot report or score as well.
|Grade 2, Regular, or Email-Registered Members
|It includes members joined to HAMAFZA directly by providing their email address as minimum. Email is the only single field HAMAFZA controls about them. They are allowed to use unreal names or their nicknames for their own reasons. These members shall have access to G1 and G2 information only. We usually DO NOT give them the right to report or score businesses’ products or services. However, Depending on the country HAMAFZA is put into operation, this policy might change. Corporations may also start from this level in order to become familiar with the website and its features. However, for doing business in HAMAFZA they are encouraged to apply for verification as soon as they can.
|Grade 2 information
|In order to see G2 info, you need to Register and Log-in. G2 (Regular) to G5 (Gold members) shall see G2 info. A G2 member shall not have access to classified info including G3, G4, and G5.

|Grade 3, Crystal, or Verified Members
|Includes members (with or without known Referrers) who have answered the obligatory questions defined for Grade 3 applicants either on registration form or in “About” tab of their profile truthfully, have met other requirements specified for granting G3, and their identity and traceability has been assessed and verified by HAMAFZA; or they are well known to the communities as reputable individuals or businesses. As a pre-requisite, they shall permit HAMAFZA to publicize the scores and reports from HAMAFZA high rank members (i.e. G3, G4, & G5) about the quality of their performance or products. This grade includes both customers and suppliers and they are the members HAMAFZA recommends you to pick suppliers/sellers from.
People who want to present their businesses or companies are better to start from this grade, in order to be trusted easier. However, they may continue their presence as a regular un-verified member until they think it is the time for them to apply for verification.
In case of change of stats and circumstances, it is up on the Crystal Members to update their profiles and proof documents sent to HAMAFZA.
|Grade 3 information

This is the grade HAMAFZA prefers for all businesses or individuals doing business through HAMAFZA. In case of receiving reports of misconduct, HAMAFZA might ask the concerned business-member to apply for verification. The reason for choosing the name “Crystal Members” for this grade of members is their clarity in introducing themselves and allowing reports and evaluations being publicized.
In case the righteous people or reputable companies known to the societies have hesitations to satisfy the requirements for G3, up on approval by HAMAFZA management, they might be granted G3 or Crystal Grade.
