We want all our users to have a positive experience using Upinion. We therefore ask you to respect these guidelines.

Your account: Do not create an account for anyone other than yourself without their permission. Do not create or use multiple accounts. You will not share your password, let anyone else access your account, or do anything else that might jeopardize the security of your account. If we disable your account, you will not create another one without our permission. We reserve the right to remove or reclaim usernames or other identifiers if we believe it is appropriate to do so – for example, if you are infringing someone else’s trademark.
