VENND ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY
The Vennd Platform is an online shopping app dedicated to helping groups of people plan a wedding, furnish a shared dwelling and prepare for a new family addition. Vennd brings together casual shoppers, designers, wedding planners, family and home decor enthusiasts. Vennd users can invite people to join his or her buying circle for simple collaboration and sharing of opinions. Through the Vennd Platform, users can employ a swiping motion to choose products: swiping right for products they like and swiping left on a product to dismiss and move on to the next one. When all members of his or her buying circle like a product, everyone will be notified that they share the same interest. Users will then have the option to buy that mutually-liked product. Collaboration is best when shopping online and finding that happy middle ground.
While we believe the free and open exchange of ideas and products is a key tenet of commerce, there are some activities that are incompatible with Vennd’s mission to make online shopping better for everyone.
