When you use Vurbl, you join a community of audiophiles. Every cool, new community feature on Vurbl involves a certain level of trust. We trust you to respect that trust and to be responsible. Following the guidelines below helps to keep Vurbl fun and enjoyable for everyone.
You might not like everything you hear on Vurbl. If you think content is inappropriate, use the flagging feature to submit it for review by our Vurbl staff. Our staff carefully reviews flagged content to determine whether there’s a violation of our Community Guidelines. Here are some common-sense rules that’ll help you steer clear of trouble. Please take these rules seriously and take them to heart. Don’t try to look for loopholes or try to lawyer your way around the guidelines—just understand them and try to respect the spirit in which they were created.
Some functionality noted below may not be available yet but we intend for this functionality to be available in the future.
Vurbl is not for sexually explicit content. If this describes your audio file, don’t post it on Vurbl. Also, be advised that we work closely with law enforcement and we report child exploitation.
Don’t post audio that encourages others to do things that might cause them to get badly hurt, especially kids. Audio promoting such harmful or dangerous acts may get age-restricted or removed depending on their severity.
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, caste, sexual orientation, or gender identity, or content that incites hatred on the basis of these core characteristics
It’s not okay to post violent content that’s primarily intended to be shocking, sensational, or gratuitous. If posting violent content in a news or documentary context, please be mindful to provide enough information to help people understand what’s going on. Don’t encourage others to commit specific acts of violence.
It’s not ok to post abusive audio and comments on Vurbl. If harassment crosses the line into a malicious attack it can be reported and may be removed. In other cases, users may be mildly annoying or petty and should be ignored.
Everyone hates spam. Don’t create misleading descriptions, tags, titles, or thumbnails in order to increase views. It’s not okay to post large amounts of untargeted, unwanted or repetitive content, including comments and private messages.
Respect copyright. Only upload audio that you made or that you’re authorized to use. This means don’t upload audio you didn’t make, or use content in your audio that someone else owns the copyright to, such as music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programs, or audio made by other users, without necessary authorizations.
If someone has posted your personal information or uploaded an audio file of you without your consent, you can request removal of content based on our Privacy Guidelines.
Accounts that are established to impersonate another station or individual may be removed under our impersonation policy
Vurbl doesn’t allow content that endangers the emotional and physical well-being of minors. A minor is defined as someone under the legal age of majority — usually anyone younger than 18 years old in most countries/regions.
If you find content that violates this policy, report it. If you believe that a child is in danger, you should contact your local law enforcement to report the situation immediately.
Don’t post content on Vurbl if it fits any of the descriptions below.
This policy applies to audio, audio descriptions, comments, messages, posts, live streams, and any other Vurbl product or feature. Please note this is not a complete list.
Some language is not appropriate for younger audiences. Use of sexually explicit language or excessive profanity in your audio or associated metadata may lead to the age-restriction of your video.
In general, users are expected to be active members within the Vurbl community. If an account is found to be overly inactive, the account may be reclaimed by Vurbl without notice. Inactivity may be considered as:
If you post content that encourages other users to violate our Terms of Service, the content may be removed, your account may be penalized, and in some cases your account may be terminated.
We may ask you to confirm your age if we think that you are not old enough to use Vurbl.
If a Vurbl creator’s on- and/or off-platform behavior harms our users, community, employees or ecosystem, we may respond based on a number of factors including, but not limited to, the egregiousness of their actions and whether a pattern of harmful behavior exists.
Our response will range from suspending a creator’s privileges to account termination.
