We also ask that you take a moment to review the Play Fair Basics found below, which are meant to assist you to efficiently and successfully create your listings on Keen.com

Personal Contact Information
For your safety, Keen recommends that you do not disclose personal contact information to other members of this site. If you choose to reveal this information, please know that you do so at your own risk. Additionally, Keen does not recommend or encourage members to use the Keen site to solicit other members to meet with them in person.

To protect the privacy of our members, Keen does not permit Advisors to post their personal contact information, such as an email address, phone number, mailing address or Instant Messenger ID, on their listings or home page.

If a member leaves personal contact information about themselves or about you in feedback, please fill out a Support Form and select "Play Fair Inquiry" from the drop down menu so that we may remove it. Please see the Privacy Policy if you have questions about the use of information you provide to Keen.

Personal Websites
Advisors are permitted to post links or URLs on Keen to their personal website if that site provides customers with additional information that would help a customer decide whether or not to place a call to you. Advisors are not permitted to include the URL to any outside websites in listing titles or member photos.

Advisors are not permitted to post links/URLs on Keen to the following types of websites:

  • Merchandise-only sites other than wishlists.
  • Websites that include personal contact information, such as a non-Keen phone number, social networking profile link, or email address.
  • Websites that solicit payment outside of Keen for a competitive service. Keen considers the following to be a competitive service: phone calls, chat, webcam, recorded content, and content exchanged via email, such as readings or charts.
  • Please also review KEEN's Social Media policy.

Please note that Advisors may not provide members with alternative payment methods (such as PayPal, Western Union, personal checks, money orders, etc.) for the above-mentioned services. All transactions that you have with Keen customers must take place through Keen.

If you are unsure whether or not you are permitted to post a link on Keen to your personal website, we ask that you fill out a Support Form and select "Play Fair Inquiry" from the drop down menu prior to adding the link to your listing or homepage. Please be sure to include your member name and the URL for the website so that we may review it.

Social Media
In alignment with KEEN's marketing efforts, Advisors are encouraged to promote their listings on KEEN by linking to them from social media such as Twitter and Facebook posts. Advisors are allowed to use social networking for self-promotion in the following capacity:

  • Inclusion of a Twitter Button that directs customers to your specific profile. No other Twitter widgets are acceptable at this time.
  • Advisors are allowed to promote KEEN listings on social media sites. We also provide a ShareThis widget located on the listing sidebar for your use.
  • Advisors may not provide members with alternative payment methods (such as PayPal, Western Union, personal checks, money orders, etc.) via any website or social media.
  • In keeping with the alternative payment method policy, Advisors are not permitted to include links/URLs from their KEEN pages to social networking domains such as Facebook, MySpace or YouTube.
  • Referring KEEN customers to your personal social networking profile is strictly prohibited.
  • If you have a question about your specific usage of social media, please contact the Play Fair Department through the Support Form found in our Help section.

Banner Ads
To ensure a smooth customer experience and enhance the overall professionalism of your listing page, Keen does not permit Advisors to post banner ads on their listings or home pages. The term banner ad includes "clickable" links, banner ads and URLs that may act as an advertisement for a third party company. For example, image hosting websites or video sharing sites are not allowed.

HTML
Keen does not permit Advisors to use HTML or special characters within the listing title: however, HTML in the body of a listing is acceptable as long as the listing appears in the standing format.

Feedback
Since we recognize that feedback is one of the most important ways to enhance your business, Keen does not permit Advisors to take any actions that may undermine the integrity of the feedback system. This includes leaving positive feedback for accounts that you own using secondary usernames or third parties, as well as stating in your listing that Customers who leave a rating of less than 5 stars will be blocked.

While unique customer testimonials are allowed to help a customer decide whether or not to contact you, Keen does not permit Advisors to add a screenshot of the Keen feedback system into the body of a listing. Doing so may be misleading to consumers and infringes upon the Keen brand.

If you would like to dispute feedback left on your listing, your proper avenue of complaint is to fill out a Support Form and selecting "Play Fair Inquiry" from the drop down menu, informing us of your request. You should not email the member to complain. Also, Advisors may not post customer's member names or information on their listings without their consent as such activity constitutes harassment, which is a violation of the Member Agreement.

For more information, please read our Feedback Removal Policy.

Categories
When a listing is created in more specific categories (e.g., Tarot Readings, Pet Psychics), the Advisor must reference why the category is relevant to the advice that will be provided within the body of the listing. Only referencing the category in the Listing Title is not sufficient for listing acceptance.

Listings must be submitted in English, or if they are submitted for inclusion in the "Psíquicos" category, Spanish.

Free Minute Promotions
Advisors may not offer free minutes, or any other type of giveaway, in exchange for ratings or written feedback.

Contests
Keen does not permit contests, promotions, drawings, or games of chance.

Lottery Numbers
Advisors are not permitted to offer advice about lottery numbers. Guaranteeing or claiming to offer winning lottery numbers may violate the law of some states.

Donations
In order to ensure all donations go to those in need, soliciting donations from Keen members for services not related to the advice you are providing on Keen is not permitted. This includes running specials stating that all (or a portion) of your earnings will be donated.

Payment Information
Advisors must provide true, accurate and complete payment registration information and maintain it as current. Advisors must promptly update the personal contact information that you provide to Keen, as applicable. Advisors are not permitted to use false identities or impersonate any other person or use a name that you are not authorized to use.

Adult Content
To make Keen enjoyable for all members, Advisors are not permitted to create listings with adult-oriented content or with the purpose of providing adult-oriented conversation. For information on what Keen considers "adult-oriented," please see the Adult Policy.

Manage Availability
To ensure that all customers receive an excellent and consistent experience, Keen mandates that all advisors must manage his or her availability. Keen does not permit Advisors to continuously miss or ignore incoming conversations when they are set to "available."

For more information or if you need assistance managing your availability, please visit the Availability Manager in our "Help" page.

Copyright Infringement
Advisors shall not use the site or its services to transmit, route, provide connections to or store any material that infringes the copyrighted works or violates or promotes the violation of the intellectual property rights of any third party.

If you believe that your work has been copied on the Keen site in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please refer to Section 12 of the Member Agreement for instructions on how to file a claim with Keen's Copyright Agent.
