Simply put, we want Zeal Remote (Zeal) to be a valuable and safe place for collaboration and innovation. Help us foster the growth & support of our global travel network. Post and contribute resources that are only your own IP and always follow the law. 

 

To achieve these goals we have formed these guidelines to make it clear and referenceable what you can expect from us, one another, and we of you to best harness the power of the global community that you’re contributing to as a member of Zeal.

 

Note that as the community grows and innovates so will these guidelines. Since one of our founding principles is to serve the needs & desires of those that shape our community, we welcome your feedback and contribution to advance these guidelines.
