Our Community Standards are important to ensure the best experience for everyone at Drinking Mates Live. We take them seriously, so please read them carefully.

If you’re honest, kind and respectful to others, you’ll always be welcome on Drinking Mates Live. If you choose not to be, you may not last. We aim to allow users to express themselves freely as long as it doesn’t offend others. Everyone is held to the same standard. We’re asking you to be considerate, think before acting, and abide by our community guidelines on and offline. You heard that right: your offline behaviour can lead to the termination of your Drinking Mates Live account. Our community standards should be understood in conjunction with the rest of this Acceptable Use Policy, Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. If you violate these policies, you might be banned from Drinking Mates Live.

Drinking Mates Live is not for:

8) Promotion or Solicitation. Soliciting other users is prohibited on Drinking Mates Live. It’s fine to invite your Drinking Mates to something that you’re doing, but if the purpose of your profile is to advertise your event or business, non-profit, political campaign, contest, or to conduct research, we may delete your account.

9) Prostitution and Trafficking. Promoting or advocating for commercial sexual services, human trafficking or other non-consensual sexual acts is strictly prohibited and will result in your account being banned from Drinking Mates Live.
