The-sages.com is not only an online store but also a journalistic information site for non-customers of the online store. The non-profit information site includes an online magazine. The video interviews broadcast on our YouTube channel and the press articles are the exclusive property of The-sages and may not be reproduced in part or in full by third parties. However, they may be distributed by third parties (bloggers, influencers, individuals, newspapers) without alteration or transformation of the content in compliance with the legislation on freedom of expression and intellectual property, which includes respect for the-sages.com brand and the interviewees. 

The-sages.com also includes a page dedicated to the computer search of hundreds of brands present in the ethical fashion sector and whose collections are notably designed from recycled materials and plants. The Veryfair search engine has been designed to allow visitors to find ethical brands that correspond to their values. The promotional page of a brand redirects the visitor to its website and social networks. 

The brands presented do not pay any royalties or sell their products on the-sages.com online store. The Veryfair search engine is not responsible for the information of the brands, as Veryfair lists information already present on the website of the brands, information accessible from their sites by third parties, press and individuals. If a brand wishes to update or complete the information collected, or no longer wishes to appear on the search engine, it may request the modification or removal of its profile at the following email address: contact@the-sages.com. 

Any new brand that we would not have yet listed and wishing to appear on the engine, can contact our customer service via this form: contact.
