Content Guidelines

  1. Event & Venue Listing Content Guidelines
    1. This site is an Internet property owned by Zvents, Inc. Our objective is to aggregate event information from the venues and share that information with the public. Part of our responsibility is to ensure that user-posted content meets guidelines consistent with the values of the community we serve. As a result, these content guidelines have been developed and govern the responsible self-service listing of events on this site.
    2. We recommend that as a promoter, you provide the kind and type of information that you would want to know if you were searching for an event to attend. Providing users with as much accurate information as possible about the event will help them more quickly gain an understanding of the event information and make a better decision as to attendance. Do not include copyrighted content without permission.
    3. Use common sense as to the kind and type of information to include in listings. But, in the event questions arise, we've provided specific guidelines. The guidelines below provide you with relevant tips, including the types of violations that are cause for immediate listing removal and/or suspension of a member's account. Other inappropriate listings not described specifically below may also warrant removal, denial of publication and/or suspension from the site. This site reserves the right to remove any listing without warning or notice.

We cannot insure that the event will actually occur.
