  • Don't copy or use anything from the site without getting permission first. It's just not cool.
  • You can link to this site but it must be the entire page. Don't use our site, identity, or name to pretend to endorse yours or to misrepresent us. You wouldn't want anyone to do that to you!
  • Your dealings with businesses advertised on this site is your responsibility. We just advertise them.
  • Don't create fictitious accounts, misuse our system, or use it to promote another business or site.
  • Comments or feedback you leave on the forum, our social media pages, etc., can be quoted by us for promotional purposes. We'll be sure to give you credit!
  • We don't sell or share your information and we won't inundate you with email. Nobody likes that.
  • Use your full business and personal names in your account and make sure you don't upload copyrighted material unless you have permission.
  • Keep your username and password secure - your account security is your responsibility (avoid using password saving features in your browser).
  • Membership plans and advertising are non-refundable (partially or fully) and prices of items in your cart can change until you check out.
  • You're responsible to get your web-ready advertising graphic to us before the start date. Prices don't include ad design services. No ads for competitor sites and keep it clean and honest otherwise we might remove your ad!
  • When you post on the forum, stay on topic and treat people the way you'd want to be treated. Don't use the forum for advertising.
  • We try to keep our system running 100% of the time, make it easy to use, and make it work smoothly; but no one's perfect - sometimes there are issues or maintenance we need to perform. We can't compensate for any losses and hope you'll understand.

We strive to keep this website free of profanity, inappropriate images, derogatory or libelous content, and any other content that we determine to be unacceptable. We reserve the right to edit, remove, or delete any content at our sole discretion and revoke a member's privileges or account.

We reserve the right to immediately remove any material we deem at our sole discretion to be in violation of copyright laws. Furthermore, we reserve the right to suspend or revoke a member's account if a complaint or multiple complaints are received from copyright owner(s) regarding material published without their permission or that is not in full compliance with their terms of use.

Personalized URLs provides account holders who have an active farm or store profile with the ability to create their own personalized URL (Uniform Resource Locator) for the purpose of providing a shorter, meaningful web address to direct visitors to their profile on The personalized URL entered should closely resemble the corresponding business name or registered domain name. The practice of domain speculation, whereby a URL is taken with the intent of denying another business from being able to use this URL for their own farm, as a means to deceptively direct web traffic away from another business' pages to their own, or with the intention of selling back a URL for any form of profit, is strictly prohibited. In the case where one member's farm name is very similar to a competitor's farm name and there is no evidence of domain speculation or malicious intent, then URLs are acquired on a first come, first served basis and we assume no responsibility for arbitrating such cases.

In the case where a member has entered a URL that appears to be unrelated to their own farm name and is confusingly similar to another farm's name, we reserve the right to remove their URL entry at our sole discretion. We also reserve the right to deny the privilege of a Personalized URL to any farm that engages in any form of domain speculation or malicious activity.


Purchases made from individual businesses represented on this site are strictly between the buyer and the business that the item(s) or service(s) are being purchased from.

Users whose products or services are displayed in the Store are required to categorize their items consistent with the product category selected so as to not mislead or otherwise cause confusion to visitors. We reserve the right at our sole discretion to either re-categorize or remove any product or service that is either miscategorized or is in any other way misleading to customers. If an appropriate product or service category does not exist, this does not constitute permission to categorize an item under the category deemed the "closest" to the user. Users should either NOT post an item that can not be properly and accurately categorized or they can contact Yakzz Support and request that a new category be added, at our discretion.

If complaints are received regarding a specific item or the business practices of a particular user, we reserve the right to either remove such items or deactivate a user's account until such a time that the reason for the complaint(s) can be satisfactorily addresses and corrected. Purchases
