Respect the VEYEV community

We're not asking for the kind of respect reserved for nuns, the elderly, and brain surgeons. Just don't abuse the site. Every cool, new community feature on Veyev involves a certain level of trust. We trust you to be responsible, and millions of users respect that trust. Please be one of them.

Nudity and sexual content

If a content is intended to be sexually provocative, it is less likely to be acceptable for Veyev.

What is and isn’t allowed

Sexually explicit content like pornography is not allowed. In most cases, violent, graphic, or humiliating fetishes are not allowed to be shown on Veyev. A content that contains nudity or other sexual content may be allowed if the primary purpose is educational, documentary, scientific, or artistic, and it isn’t gratuitously graphic. For example, a documentary on breast cancer would be appropriate, but posting clips out of context from the same documentary might not be. Remember that providing context in the title and description will help us and your viewers determine the primary purpose of the content.

Violent or graphic content

Real depictions of graphic or violent content:

Increasingly, Veyev is becoming an outlet for citizen journalists, documentarians and other users to publish accounts of what is happening in their daily lives. It is inevitable that some of these contents will contain content that is violent or graphic in nature.

If the violence shown in your content is particularly graphic, please make sure to post as much information as possible in the title and metadata to help viewers understand what they are seeing. Providing documentary or educational context can help the viewer, and our reviewers, understand why they may be seeing the disturbing content.

It’s not okay to post violent or gory content that’s primarily intended to be shocking, sensational or disrespectful. If a content is particularly graphic or disturbing, it should be balanced with additional context and information. For instance, a citizen journalist who captures footage of protesters being beaten and uploads it with relevant information (date, location, context, etc) would likely be allowed. However, posting the same footage without contextual or educational information may be considered gratuitous and may be removed from the site.

Harmful or dangerous content

While it might not seem fair to say you can’t show something because of what viewers might do in response, we draw the line at content that intends to incite violence or encourage dangerous or illegal activities that have an inherent risk of serious physical harm or death.

Contents that we consider to encourage dangerous or illegal activities include instructional bomb making, choking games, hard drug use, or other acts where serious injury may result. A content that depicts dangerous acts may be allowed if the primary purpose is educational, documentary, scientific, or artistic (EDSA), and it isn’t gratuitously graphic. For example, a news piece on the dangers of choking games would be appropriate, but posting clips out of context from the same documentary might not be.

Contents that incite others to commit acts of violence are strictly prohibited from Veyev. If your content asks others to commit an act of violence or threatens people with serious acts of violence, it will be removed from the site.

We are very sensitive to any harmful or dangerous content that involves minors. If your content shows a minor participating in a harmful or dangerous activity, do not post it. In the interest of protecting minors, we may age-restrict contents containing adults participating in activities that have a high risk of injury or death.

Spam, deceptive practices, and scams

We are constantly working to keep Veyev free of spam, scams and other deceptive practices that attempt to take advantage of the Veyev community. Below you can learn in more detail what constitutes a violation of these policies.

Content and comment spam

It's not okay to post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted, or repetitive content in contents, comments or other places on the site. If the main purpose of your content is to drive people off of Veyev and onto another site, it will likely violate our spam policies.

Artificial traffic spam

Anything that artificially increases the number of views, likes, comments, or other metric either through the use of automatic systems or by serving up contents to unsuspecting viewers, is against our terms. Contents and accounts that are found to be in violation of our terms may be closed down and removed from Veyev. If you are going to hire someone to help promote your content, it should be someone you absolutely trust, as you may be putting the fate of your profile (and your business on Veyev) in their hands. If they are using methods that violate our terms of service, you may be the one to pay the bigger price, as it will be your contents and channel that get taken down.

Misleading metadata

Metadata refers to any and all additional information provided on a content. This includes the title, description, tags, annotations, and thumbnail. The reason we have metadata is so that you can add additional contextual information to your contents. Please do not use these features to game or trick our search algorithms. All metadata should be representative of the content contained in your content. Among other things, metadata added in an attempt to game search algorithms will lead to the removal of your content and a strike against your account.

Misleading or racy thumbnails

Please select the thumbnail that best represents your content. Selecting a sexually provocative thumbnail may result in the removal of your thumbnail or the age-restriction of your content. The thumbnail is the title card that will be shown next to your content across the site and should be appropriate for all ages.

If you are uploading a parody, review or vlog, please choose appropriately representative metadata that will not confuse users into believing that your content is something it is not. This is especially important to remember in relation to current events or viral contents. Please select a thumbnail and title that clearly illustrate that your content is commentary and not footage from an actual event. Contents that are deemed deceptive will be removed from the site and strikes may be issued to the uploader.

Scams

Some users create content which attempts to trick others for their own financial gain. Content that deliberately tries to mislead users for financial gain may be removed, and in some cases strikes may be issued to the uploader.

Please be wary of claims that seem too good to be true, as they likely are.

Blackmail or extortion

Veyev has a zero-tolerance policy for extortion and/or blackmail. If someone has recorded a sexually exploitative content of you and has sent the link, please flag this content immediately for removal and contact your local law enforcement.

Harassment and cyberbullying

We want you to use Veyev without fear of being subjected to malicious harassment. In cases where harassment crosses the line into a malicious attack it can be reported and will be removed. In other cases, users may be mildly annoying or petty and should simply be ignored.

Harassment may include :
