Subscriber Service Agreement
This Services Agreement (“Agreement”) applies to business customers who become subscribers and governs your purchase and use, in any manner, of all subscription services (the “Services”) provided by Vines OS LLC (hereinafter “Vines OS”), and any of its affiliates.
NOTWITHSTANDING, BY BECOMING A SUBSCRIBER AND USING THE SERVICES, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS AGREEMENT AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
Vines OS reserves the right to change or modify any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement and any policy or guidelines incorporated by reference at any time in its sole discretion. Any changes or modification will be effective upon prominently posting the revisions on the Vines OS Website (the “Website”) and sending e-mail notifications to your e-mail address on record. Your continued use of Services following Vines OS’s posting of any changes or modifications will constitute your acceptance of such changes or modifications. “Content” means all text, pictures, sound, graphics, video, links, and other data stored by you on Vines OS’s server computers.
Vines OS will provide one or more of the following services depending on the plan you choose:
Wine Club Management

Metered File Transfer
Vines OS will provide shared server computers with an Internet address for storage and access of the Website. While Vines OS does not set arbitrary limits on the amount of visitor traffic User Websites can receive or on the amount of content a User can upload to User Websites in any given month, nor does Vines OS charge additional fees based on the increased use of bandwidth, as long as User’s use of the Services complies with this Agreement, Vines OS reserves the right to limit processor time, bandwidth, processes, or memory in cases where it is necessary to prevent negatively impacting other Users. You understand that Vines OS’s servers are for deployment only, not application development. All application testing must be done on your equipment prior to use on Vines OS’s servers. The Website and Content must be “server-ready.” If your material does not meet this condition, Vines OS has the option at any time to reject this material. Vines OS will notify you of its refusal of the material and afford you the opportunity to amend or modify the material to bring it to the appropriate level. Vines OS will provide hosting services for the Website that meet reasonable commercial standards for, among other matters, packet loss, accessibility, latency, availability, and throughput. If you require additional bandwidth or storage, Vines OS will, in good faith, try to provide it at Vines OS’s current rates unless Vines OS’s server computers cannot accommodate the requested bandwidth or storage. You agree that use of the Services under this Agreement will not exceed the bandwidth and storage usage limits set out. You will be charged additional charges for any excess usage above the agreed upon monthly bandwidth.
Vines OS will take commercially reasonable steps to prevent unauthorized access to the Website, Content, and Confidential Information stored on Vines OS’s server computers.
If requested by you, Vines OS will deliver to you in electronic form the Server Log of Website activity. You will be entitled to one month of log storage free of charge. Vines OS may, at its option, charge a fee for additional space required to store oversized logs.
Vines OS may not have a current backup of your files. Due to power interruptions, “down time” and/or other factors beyond Vines OS’s control or due to any computer or software malfunction, your data may be lost by Vines OS. Therefore, you are responsible for backing up your own files. Vines OS shall not be responsible or liable for lost data.

All amounts due for the billable contract period will be due upon termination. Vines OS’s right to take corrective action, however, does not obligate us to monitor or exert editorial control over the information made available for distribution via the Services.
