Authorized Use & Permissions

We believe that The VOBO Platform should allow Authorized Channel Owners to share ideas and information instantly, without barriers. In order to protect the experience and safety of your users there are some limitations on the type of content and behavior that we allow. All users must adhere to the policies set forth in the Vobo AUP. Failure to do so may result in the temporary locking and/or permanent suspension of account(s).

Though the thoughts and Idea’s you present on your private media channel are yours and free from censorship there are a few conditions under law that VOBO deems to be unacceptable behavior, Please note that we may need to change these terms from time to time and reserve the right to do so. The most current version will always be available at Vobo.com/AUP
