Anything that you post or otherwise make available on VEEBLES is referred to as “User Content.” You retain all rights in, and are solely responsible for, the User Content you post to VEEBLES.

In simple terms, if we like your content, we may use it to either directly mention your business (because we love supporting you) or to represent VEEBLES. By posting images and content to your business listing , you are giving VEEBLES permission to use content at any time without compensation to you.
By submitting any photo, text, or other content or information to VEEBLES, you hereby represent and warrant that the submitted photo, text, or other content or information does not infringe on any copyright or trademark, any rights of privacy or publicity of any person, or any other right of any third party.

VEEBLES may also correct punctuation, spelling errors, and modify or resize images for the purpose of increased website efficiency. “ALL CAPS” listing titles and taglines are not permitted. The word “vegan” in a title (or tag) is only permitted if it is part of the legal name of the business or nonprofit. No URL links are permitted in the “About Business” and the “About Personal” sections. VEEBLES will place all “main image” photos or logos in a standard square 500 pixel x 500 pixel box for visual consistency and to make the website more attractive. Using ALL CAPS is almost always NOT permitted in any part of listings or descriptions, unless it is part of the actual logo of the business.
If you own your business, your business logo must be placed as the main image. VEEBLES reserves the right to modify a main image logo to fit the proper square dimensions. If no logo is easily available, VEEBLES may create a main image that is consistent with others; for example, your business name or an image that is easily recognizable as your brand. To preserve space on Veebles, all images will be formatted at a resolution of 72 pixels per inch.
If you do not own your business, you must upload an image of yourself (a headshot) as the main image. VEEBLES reserves the right to make the final approval of your main image. VEEBLES reserves the right (but has no obligation) to place your listing in a different category than the one you chose, or add additional keywords to your listing, if we feel it will improve your results.
In simple terms, you agree to allow VEEBLES to make minor changes to photos, keywords, categories, and other areas to be consistent with VEEBLES design and “look,” and to help your profile to be more successful.
You hereby agree to hold VEEBLES and its officers, directors, employees, successors, and assigns harmless from and against – and hereby waive any right to pursue legal action or any claims of any nature arising in connection with VEEBLES use of the photos, text, or other content or information submitted by you to VEEBLES and used in any manner in VEEBLES sole and absolute discretion.

Personal attacks on other members will result in an immediate ban.
Content inappropriate for minors: profanity, sexual or suggestively sexual content, promoting illegal activities, etc, will result in an immediate ban.
Posting private contact information (address/phone/email) of others will result in an immediate ban.

Business Listing Guidelines
VEEBLES exists to provide more choices for the vegan community, and to support those business owners who do not eat meat or consume animal products.
Our objective in establishing these guidelines is to ensure that all site users can be confident that the businesses and organizations we present are truly operating in a spirit that enhances and serves the vegan community.
For the purposes of this site, the term “vegan” is defined as someone who never eats meat or uses products derived from animals. “Vegan” includes vegans, raw foodists (who do not eat meat), and fruitarians. For the purposes of this site, people who are “100% plant-based” may be included. “100% plant-based” is defined as never consuming (eating) meat or fish or consuming (eating or drinking) products derived from animals.
The term “meat” is defined as the flesh of any once-living being not a member of the plant kingdom. Therefore, the flesh of all other land, sea, or air creatures is considered “meat” for purposes of this definition.
Anyone may use this site regardless of food choice.
However, in order to list your business on this site, you must be vegan or “100% plant-based.” Again, this means that you never eat meat or fish or consume dairy products.
By listing your business on this site you are declaring that you are a vegan according to our guidelines.
By listing your business with Veebles, you agree that your business does not use or sell products that have harmed or exploited animals in any way. For example, wool, leather, silk, or products made with dairy or honey. You further agree that any services you offer through your listed business does not in any way harm or exploit animals.
You further understand and agree that your listing will be terminated if you are found to be in violation of our guidelines. You further agree not to attempt to list your business again until all listing criteria are met.
If in the future you meet our criteria, you would be welcomed to list your business with us, and will be greeted with open arms, praises and congratulations!
All listing submissions are subject to review and will be accepted on a case-by-case basis. We reserve the right to limit membership to those businesses that we feel conform to our guidelines.
Sometimes, the decision of who qualifies to be listed with VEEBLES is not an easy one to make. We’ll contact you if we need clarification, and you are welcome to contact us for further conversation. If we feel that your situation falls outside of VEEBLES vision and guidelines, we’ll try to offer recommendations that may help.
In simple terms, this site is for vegan-only businesses.
If you have personal knowledge that a business listed is not owned by a vegan, please email us.
If you have any questions about these guidelines, please email us.
Thanks for visiting!
