TERMS OF SERVICE
SmartBizPages Terms of Service for Your Personal Use Welcome to fastest directory listing! By using SmartBizPages’s directory listing or other SmartBizPages services (“SmartBizPages Services”), you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions (the “Terms of Service”). We occasionally modify these policies, so please check back here for any updates
Do not use our Services to engage in illegal activities or to promote activities that are dangerous and illegal, such as terrorism, the sale of illegal drugs, or human trafficking.
We may also remove content that violates applicable local laws. To report content that you believe should be removed based on local laws, click here.
Malicious and Deceptive Practices
Do not transmit viruses, malware, or any other malicious or destructive code. Do not distribute content that harms or interferes with the operation of the networks, servers, or other infrastructure of Google or others. Do not use our Services for phishing scams.
Our products are platforms for free expression. But we don’t support content that promotes or condones violence against individuals or groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, veteran status, or sexual orientation/gender identity, or whose primary purpose is inciting hatred on the basis of these core characteristics. This can be a delicate balancing act, but if the primary purpose is to attack a protected group, the content crosses the line.
Harassment, Bullying, and Threats
Do not engage in harassing, bullying, or threatening behavior, and do not incite others to engage in these activities. Anyone using our Services to single someone out for malicious abuse, to threaten someone with serious harm, to sexualize a person in an unwanted way, or to harass in other ways may have the offending content removed or be permanently banned from using the Services. In emergency situations, we may escalate imminent threats of serious harm to law enforcement. Keep in mind that online harassment is also illegal in many places and can have serious offline consequences for both the harasser and the victim.

Personal and Confidential Information
Do not distribute other people’s personal and confidential information, such as credit card numbers, confidential national ID numbers, or account passwords, without their permission. Do not post or distribute images or videos of minors without the necessary consent from their legal representatives. Report a violation
Do not upload or share content that exploits or abuses children. This includes all child sexual abuse imagery (even cartoon images) and all content that presents children in a sexual manner. We will remove such content and take appropriate action, which may include disabling accounts and reporting to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) and law enforcement. Note that this policy may additionally apply to any content uploaded or transmitted through our Services.
If you find any content that you think exploits children in this manner, do not +1, reshare or comment on such content, even if your intent is to bring it to Google’s attention. Instead, flag the content through the ‘Report Abuse’ link. If you find content elsewhere on the internet, please contact NCMEC directly.
Do not spam, including by sending unwanted promotional or commercial content, or unwanted or mass solicitation.
Do not aggressively send invitations, add people to your circles, or message people that you do not know.
Do not manipulate ranking or relevancy using techniques like repetitive or misleading keywords or metadata.
Sexually Explicit Material
Do not distribute sexually explicit or pornographic material. Do not drive traffic to commercial pornography sites.
We do allow naturalistic and documentary depictions of nudity (such as an image of a breastfeeding infant), as well as depictions of nudity that serve a clear educational, scientific, or artistic purpose.
Note that your Google+ profile photo cannot include mature or offensive content. For example, do not use a photo that is a close-up of a person’s buttocks or cleavage.
Do not distribute depictions of graphic or gratuitous violence.
Regulated Goods and Services
Our Services enable discussion of many topics, but we do not allow content that facilitates the sale of regulated products and services, including alcohol, gambling, pharmaceuticals and unapproved supplements, tobacco, fireworks, weapons, or health/medical devices.
Because these topics are often heavily regulated and may not be appropriate for all ages or in all countries, we have created tools on Google+ to help you target your content to users of the appropriate ages in the right markets. If your content promotes regulated goods and services, you are responsible for applying the appropriate age and geographical restrictions for that content where these tools are available. If we receive a complaint that such content is targeting audiences in violation of applicable laws and regulations, we may remove or restrict the offending content or account.
Even with the appropriate age and geographical restrictions in place, we still do not allow the facilitation of the sale of the products listed above.
Learn more about audience settings on Google+.
Do not use our Services to mislead or confuse users by pretending to be someone else or pretending to represent an organization you do not represent. Some products have additional guidelines: Learn moreabout Impersonation on Google+.
Do not access another user’s account without their permission.

Requests for Removal of Links or Cached Materials
SmartBizPages may from time to time receive requests from people to remove links from its indices. Although SmartBizPages reserves the right to address such requests individually, the general approach that SmartBizPages takes reflects the following principles:
SmartBizPages’s indices consist of information that has been identified, indexed and compiled through an automated process with no advance review by human beings. Given the enormous volume of web site information added, deleted, and changed on a frequent basis, SmartBizPages cannot and does not screen anything made available through its indices. For each web site reflected in SmartBizPages’s indices, if either (i) a site owner restricts access to his or her web site or (ii) a site is taken down from the web, then, upon receipt of a request by the site owner or a third party in the second instance, SmartBizPages would consider on a case-by-case basis requests to remove the link to that site from its indices. However, if the operator of the site does not take steps to prevent it, the automatic facilities used to create the indices are likely to find that site and index it again in a relatively short amount of time.
SmartBizPages may store many web pages to retrieve for users as a back-up in case the page’s server temporarily fails. Site owners may block SmartBizPages from returning cached versions of their pages by using the NOARCHIVE meta-tag. Site owners may also request immediate removal of cached page from the SmartBizPages Search Service. SmartBizPages evaluates such requests for the immediate removal of cached content on a case-by-case basis and does not guarantee that every request will be granted. If you need to contact us with respect to any of these issues, please call us at [email protected]
These Terms of Service will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario, without giving effect to conflict of laws provisions or your actual province or country of residence. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision or portion of the Terms of Service to be unenforceable, the remainder of the Terms of Service will continue in full force and effect.
These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes and replaces all prior or contemporaneous understandings or agreements, written or oral, regarding such subject matter. Any waiver of any provision of the Terms of Service will be effective only if in writing and signed by SmartBizPages.
