Identify a user as a Business owner

I'm looking for a way to identify a user as the owner of a business which I was able to find using the Location API.


So basically I've used the Location API to retrieve info regarding some types of businesses. For each business I've found I've created a page. I'd like to give the opportunity to the actual owner of a business to have control over that page I've created. How can I verify that a user is the actual manager of the business ? Thanks !

Hi @Jean-Christophe P


You are violating Google Guidelines by claiming or creating a business that you are not the owner of or have the authority to represent.


I strongly recommend you read the guidelines, especially the section about 3rd parties.
