TERMS OF USE 

Note from the founders:


We’re not so big on rules here, it’s just a wine site after all, and it’s supposed to be one of the more enjoyable parts of your day.
But we are a community, and a good one at that, so we do have a few conditions of being a Vinomofo member, and for using the Vinomofo website. Basically, it all comes down to keeping it real. Doing the right thing by us, our producers and by each other.
One of the most awesome things about Vinomofo are our secret and black market deals — these are deals so epic, wines so awesome, that the only way we can get them is by agreeing to keep the identity of the wine and the producer secret. We ask you to keep that secret with us. Please don’t post it anywhere, even if you are super-excited about it.
This way, we’ll all get to keep enjoying them. If we blow it, we won’t be able to get these deals anymore. So let’s work together, and respect our agreement with the producers of these awesome wines.
We’re also generous with “invite a friend” credits — we’ve grown through our members telling their friends about us. We love that, and welcome it! But we don’t want you to “game” that. Again — it only ends up costing the community. One account per user, please — let’s do the right thing.
Here goes, we warn you that our lawyer drafted these, so it’s not the most entertaining read, but important nonetheless…
Cheers,
Andre + Justin, co-founders
