Rights Reserved

At its discretion, VVIP may permanently cancel accounts of users who violate the Terms of Service. VVIP reserves the right to view Private Groups ONLY for the purposes of fixing issues, to respond to complaints about Terms of Service violations, or when required to do so by law. VVIP reserves the ongoing right to view Pages, Selective Groups, Open Groups, and any groups in the VVIP Open Group Directory to assess compliance with this Terms of Service. VVIP reserves the right to remove objectionable content without notice. VVIP can remove any content or information you post at VVIP if we believe that it violates our Terms of Service.
We may suspend or terminate your account or cease providing you with all or part of the Services at any time for any or no reason, including, but not limited to, if we reasonably believe you have violated these Terms.
VVIP reserves the right to ban Pages, Groups and users that do not comply with its Terms of Service as assessed in MeWe’s sole discretion and interpretation of its Terms of Service; and Users, Pages and Groups under investigation or which have been detected as sharing content in violation of these terms may have their visibility limited in various parts of VVIP, including search. Pages, Groups, and users may not be notified when any of this occurs. Banned Pages, Groups, and users may contact VVIP Customer Support to request more information. We reserve the right to respond or not respond to such requests. Please comply with the rules in MeWe’s Terms of Service.
While we have the right to monitor activity and content associated with MeWe, we are not obligated to do so. We do not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of any content submitted by users. Because community standards vary and individuals sometimes choose not to comply with our policies and practices, you understand that in the process of using VVIP, you may be exposed to content that you find offensive or objectionable in your communities. We do not endorse, support, represent or guarantee the completeness, truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of any Content or communications posted at VVIP or endorse any opinions expressed at VVIP. We may investigate the complaints and violations of our policies that come to our attention and may take any action that we believe is appropriate, including, but not limited to issuing warnings, removing the content or terminating accounts and/or subscriptions. We also, however, reserve the right not to take any action. Under no circumstances will we be liable in any way for any content, including, but not limited to any errors or omissions in any content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of, access to, or denial of access to any content on the Website.
There are no fees for use of many of the features on VVIP. However, premium features and subscriptions are available for purchase by MeWe members for additional services the company may offer.
MeWe may change the fees and/or benefits associated with premium features from time to time or may immediately suspend or terminate premium features for any or no reason and without advance notice or liability.
When you purchase a premium feature that is paid for by you through recurring payments, you agree that you are authorizing recurring payments, and that such payments and thereby subscription will be made by the method and at the recurring intervals you have agreed to, until the subscription is terminated by you or by VVIP. You may cancel a subscription at any time before the end of the current billing period and the cancellation will take effect on the next billing period.
If you break any of VVIPs terms in the use of your VVIP account and/or in the use of its premium features and subscriptions, in addition to other actions we may take, we may cancel any or all of your premium features and subscriptions immediately and no refund will be granted for any payments you have made.
VVIP uses the services of established 3rd party vendors for all payments and payment information. VVIP stores no payment information on its servers and is not liable for any breach of payment information or loss that occurs with the payment vendor.
Due to storage limitations and expenses, VVIP reserves the right to close and delete any user account that has not been logged in for a period of 6 months or more. VVIP will notify any such users whose accounts it intends to delete, by email or SMS, if they have been inactive for greater than 5 months and provide those users with a minimum of 30 days notice and options on how to keep their content and account at VVIP or how to download their content onto their personal computers. MeWe will give one final notice at least 48 hours prior to deleting an account.
VVIP reserves the right to transfer ownership and administration of or terminate an Open Group or Page that has been abandoned by the Page or Group owner and its appointed Page or Group administrators. A Page or Open Group is considered abandoned if the Page or Group owner and Page or Group administrators do not log into VVIP for at least 6 months or do not post to the Page or Group for at least 6 months. Once the transfer of a Page or Group ownership and administration is effected by VVIP, it may be transferred subsequently at any time by VVIP.

Misuse of Usernames, Page names, Group names
Selling usernames, Page names, Group names: You may not buy or sell VVIP usernames, Page names or Group names.
Username, Page name, Group name squatting: You may not engage in username, Page name, or Group name squatting. Some of the factors we take into consideration when determining whether conduct is username, Page name, or Group name squatting include:
  • the number of accounts created;
  • the creation of accounts for the purpose of preventing others from using those account names;
  • the creation of accounts for the purpose of selling those accounts; and
  • the use of third-party content feeds to update and maintain accounts under the names of those third parties.

Fake Accounts
You may not register or create fake and misleading accounts. While you may use VVIP pseudonymously or as a parody, commentary, or fan account, you may not use misleading account information in order to engage in spamming, abusive, or disruptive behavior, including attempts to manipulate the conversations on VVIP. Some of the factors that we may take into account when determining whether an account is fake include:
  • Use of stock or stolen avatar photos
  • Use of stolen or copied profile bios
  • Use of intentionally misleading profile information

More on Spam
You may not use VVIP’s services for the purpose of spamming anyone. Spam is generally defined on VVIP as bulk or aggressive activity that attempts to manipulate or disrupt VVIP or the experience of users on MeWe to drive traffic or attention to unrelated accounts, products, services, or initiatives. Some of the factors that we take into account when determining what conduct is considered to be spamming include:
  • if you have made a large number of group or user contact requests or followed and/or unfollowed a large number of user accounts or Pages, in a short time period;
  • if your posts or comments consist mainly of links and/or are shared without commentary;
  • if a large number of people have blocked you in response to high volumes of untargeted, unsolicited, or duplicative content or engagements from your account;
  • if a large number of spam complaints have been filed against you;
  • if you post duplicative or substantially similar content, replies, comments to multiple Pages, Groups, or users; or create duplicate or substantially similar accounts;
  • if you post multiple updates to a Page, Group, user or topic with an intent to subvert or manipulate the topic to drive traffic or attention to unrelated accounts, products, services, or initiatives;
  • if you send large numbers of unsolicited posts, comments, replies or mentions;
  • if you add users to lists in a bulk or aggressive manner;
  • if you are randomly or aggressively engaging with Pages, Groups, or users to drive traffic or attention to unrelated accounts, products, services, or initiatives;
  • if you repeatedly post other people’s account information as your own (e.g., bio, posts, comments, profile, user URL, etc.);
  • if you post misleading, deceptive, or malicious links (e.g., affiliate links, links to malware/clickjacking pages, etc.); Accounts created to replace or mimic suspended accounts may be permanently suspended.
  • We may also remove accounts which VVIP at its discretion attributes to entities known to violate the VVIP Terms of Service.
