Content Guidelines

Arabz is a community-driven platform designed to foster connections and promote exceptional local businesses. We encourage users to engage with integrity and respect. To maintain a welcoming and informative environment, please adhere to these general guidelines, along with the additional guidelines below for specific content types you may contribute to our platform.

Relevance

Ensure your contributions align with the platform’s purpose. Reviews should focus on consumer experiences and avoid unrelated topics such as political ideologies, business employment practices, extraordinary situations, or other non-core issues.

Inappropriate Content

While expressive language and imagery are welcome, Arabz has zero tolerance for threats, harassment, lewdness, hate speech, or any form of bigotry. We aim to create a safe and inclusive space for all users.

Conflicts of Interest

We value unbiased and objective contributions. Avoid reviewing your own business, your employer, your friends’ or relatives’ businesses, peers or competitors in your industry, or businesses in your professional network. Businesses should refrain from soliciting customers for reviews.

Privacy

Respect individuals’ privacy by refraining from sharing their private information. Avoid posting close-up photos or videos of other patrons without their consent and refrain from sharing full names unless it pertains to someone commonly known by their full name.

Promotional Content

Do not post promotional materials unless it is associated with an Arabz advertising product and is done through a Business Account. We strive to maintain the platform as a valuable resource for consumers without overwhelming it with commercial content.

Original Content

Contribute your own content and refrain from copying material from other websites, users, or businesses. Write original reviews and share your personal photos and videos. Additionally, avoid using chatbots or other AI tools to generate reviews.

By adhering to these guidelines, you contribute to the creation of a helpful and respectful community within Arabz. We value your commitment to making Arabz a trusted resource for the Arab community in Canada.
