Privacy Policy:

By using or accessing the site in any manner, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy/Terms of Use. 

GoVegan.Life or hereinafter refereed to as GVL,  is primarily an educational endeavor, a vehicle for great change, and facilitates representation and review of material for the sake of education, the sake of humanity, and exists for the care and liberation of all sentient beings without seeking reimbursement or return by any definition. Compassion is our only motive. As such requests for personal information will be extremely rare, and in the instance personally identifying information is requested it will likely be for simple communication – indexing – management –  purposes. GVL operations are rudimentary almost to the point of anonymous by design. To place principles over personality. There is no mailing list, no licensing agreement, nothing required for representation, and we don’t target market. Our philosophy is attraction rather than promotion. There is really no need to store any personal information in our operations at this time, but that is subject to change. 

Volunteering with GVL may entail access to production/back end materials in which case further personally identifying information will be requested from a participant for the security of the network. The person volunteering will be wholly aware and willing to fulfill the requirement when the time comes.

GVL does not intentionally expose, distribute or sell any personally identifying or non public information. GVL may use free 3rd party software like Google Forms in order to maximize profit free operations. Utilizing such services in accordance w/GVL may entail sharing personally identifying information with those entities, which is always at the user’s discretion and if so becomes a relationship w/the 3rd party vendor subject to their Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

GVL will occasionally link to 3rd parties or highlight organizations to help identify possibilities for advocate entities. The network may also utilize Saas in limited instances as a pro-bono like relationship for the good of the network, and not for profit.

The network may also refer to a variety of life philosophies for educational purposes, but is not responsible for any outcomes of those exhibits.

In the event a user or participant chooses to make available (in any manner) personally identifying information or related information is transferred electronically, or through operations, or a 3rd party like Google, GoVegan.Life will not be held liable for privacy violations or consequences resulting from the submitter s choice or happenstance. Care and protection of personally identifying information remains with the user/member at all times. If such information is requested for questionable reasons, or questionable activity occurs, the proper authorities should be contacted.

GVL will take reasonable precautions if sensitive information is necessary, but ultimately disclaims responsibility in the event of damages resulting from disclosure. GVL disclaims responsibility for un-authorized theft of personal information and the owner should contact the proper authorities.

GoVegan.Life proprietary data, as well as participant data/analytics are private and intrusive manipulation of any nature are not authorized.

As most online entities anonymous usage data (cookies) may be utilized for performance (analytics), and in the case of GVL, to facilitate performance of our primary purpose…to help others practice veganism.

A lot of what you see in GoVegan.Life’s terms of use, or other places on the site, similar legalese are synonymous with the protections claimed afforded to larger institutions functioning throughout the digital landscape.

Submitted/Created Content:

As of 2018 the network does not accept content submissions, but will do so in the future. GoVegan.Life’s nature provides certain protections against claims of copyright infringement according to the United States copyright law’s “fair use” exemptions. apart from those protections GVL does not claim ownership of any content obtained or submitted on or through the site. Instead, with respect to submitted content appearing or delivered to the site with such intellectual or property rights, which may or may not become part of GVL operations and structure, you hereby grant GVL a non-exclusive, fully paid and royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable, worldwide license to use the content that you contribute on or through the site. when you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through our site, GVL may use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content. the rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and furthering the vegan cause and the non-profit nature of GoVegan.Life. By all means the site intends to further the similar causes of participants, but ultimately the user retains the ability at all times to discontinue its relationship with GVL and therefor related content which materialized under any circumstances upon request without explanation in a reasonable time frame.

Volunteering/Contributing:

GVL encourages and facilitates a broad range of activities including volunteering, and participation that entail such entities contributing original content, ideas, intellectual content, and material that may or may not be considered copyrighted and more… all variations of contributions of any kind should be considered licensed to use as previously stated with respect to submitted/created content. GoVegan.Life does not have the capacity, and will not compensate for contributions or submissions in any fashion.

 

 Disclaimer of Warranties:

Objectives suggested throughout GoVegan.Life’s pages represent hopes and ambitions. not promises. The vegan network encourages traffic to represented sites, but any disadvantageous performance experienced by member sites cannot be attributed to the GVL network.

Changes to Terms of Use:

GoVegan.Life reserves the right to modify add to or remove terms without notification. you should review the terms of service, about page, conditions, or comments with GVL periodically the same as you should every other product you use.

 

More About Content and Submissions:

We do not have the capacity, nor claim to protect user content in any capacity. common sense suggests when you publish content or information on the web you are allowing everyone to access and use that information, and to associate it with you.

Be aware that you may be exposed to offensive or controversial material like every time you access the internet. it is often the nature of the advocate to expose the truth which considering the nature of our cause may be…the truth. Our position is this: if it expands the network or creates more vegans…we support the method, and as always the right to free speech under any circumstances.

GVL holds that the onus of viewing any material belongs with the person accessing the site, and the responsibility of the entity presenting the material.

More About Data:

Data driven decisions are crucial to the success of every digital entity, veganism and GVL included. analytics and record keeping should be expected, and admin monitors such material extensively, but we do not independently publish member statistics without permission. if the user or member chooses to publish their stats…that’s on them. we hope to increase your traffic, but how your site is doing is your business.

What we intend to do for the benefit of all is to share…everything we can related to and created by GVL.

From time to time GVL will produce analytical market data and similar information such as food market surveys, and vegan opinions, but we cannot guarantee the accuracy or timeliness of such information.

Social Media and Peer Organizations:

With respect to other social media networks, and related institutions:

Thank you for having us, and where possible we will support you in kind. we hope you will be impressed with where we are going, and maybe even support what we’re doing on some level. wherever possible and practical we will pay homage and attribution to your platforms in the fashion you ask for rather than conflict. We don’t want to step on any toes… Please realize the value of what we’re trying to do here. Help if you can. We’re worth it.

 

Third Party Responsibility Disclaimer and Medical Disclaimer:

Third party content is the sole responsibility of the entity that makes it available, and GVL is not responsible for damages incurred accessing that content. GVL fosters informed decision making by way of education, and operates a portal with extensive links and references to a broad nature of material outside of its home site, including diet and medical information for such educational purposes. GoVegan.Life holds that the onus of personal care and judgment remains with the user at all times, in all cases.

That being said…if you have something wrong, we care about you, and encourage you to contact a medical professional before attempting to resolve any issue through this site or others. if something is really wrong and your life please seek immediate medical attention.

 

Fair Use:

GoVegan.Life may obtain, display or distribute, a variety of material from public and/or private entities for a variety of research, scientific and/or educational purposes, among other uses, which may or may not have been specifically authorized in advance. GoVegan.Life will exercise its right of freedom to function, incubate, and scale under the same assertions and protections held by larger organizations reminiscent of GVL’s purpose and potential such as, content oriented profit models, Social Media Companies, Non Profit Organizations, Search Engines, “Pay For” Directories, Educational Institutions, Government Institutions, Public Domain Licensers, Open Source Software Associations, or anybody else with a leg up. GVL’s overall societal benefit and nonprofit ambitions, among other elements, including, but not strictly limited to context, educational framework, transformative use, scientific and research purposes, nature, and intent provides certain protection from copyright infringement claims. That being said, we will at all times respect and honor formal international laws and traditions. Furthermore, in any case, material displayed, of public or private nature, or reference, will be immediately removed from GoVegan.Life for any reason, upon request in a reasonable time frame.

Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the dmca)”) if you believe in good faith that any content on the site infringes your copyright, you may send us a notice requesting that the content be removed.  GVL’s “removal upon request” position cannot be stated more clearly.

GVL does not support any actions in which the materials on this site are used for purposes that extend beyond fair use.

Furthermore, GVL administration can be contacted at will for discussion which should lend credence to the operation.

Fair Use references

United States Copyright law “fair use” exemptions.

Under section 107, the fair use of a copyrighted work is not copyright infringement, even if such use technically violates section 106. while fair use explicitly applies to use of copyrighted work for criticism, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research purposes, the defense is not limited to these areas. the act gives four factors to be considered to determine whether a particular use is a fair use:

  1. the purpose and character of the use (commercial or educational, transformative or reproductive);
  2. the nature of the copyrighted work (fictional or factual, the degree of creativity);
  3. the amount and substantiality of the portion of the original work used; and
  4. the effect of the use upon the market (or potential market) for the original work.

the act was later amended to extend the fair use defense to unpublished works.

 

*Note: We’re here to help without taking anything back. To give w/out receiving is fundamental to our nature. Technology has permitted the grand scale development of a collaborative network capable of facilitating change, and eliminating the use of animal products. This is our aim, and we’re going to accomplish it without money. If for some reason we offend, the act was unintentional and we’re sorry. Contact GVL admin to discuss further.
