YOMM® community and social media guidelines.
To help us maintain the kind of atmosphere where everyone feels welcome to contribute, we’ve developed some community guidelines to ensure all of our community members are allowed a safe, fun and supportive experience.
WOM Insights Pty Ltd (“WOM Insights” or “we”), the publisher of YOMM®, encourage open discussion on the YOMM® social media pages. However, as a member of the YOMM® community you promise to abide by these guidelines.
We expect all members will treat each other with respect. The following types of comments will not be tolerated, and you agree not to post the same:
- Abusive, defamatory, pornographic, or obscene posts, including material that vilifies, incites violence or hatred, or is likely to offend, insult or humiliate others based on race, religion, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation or any physical or mental disability;
- Fraudulent, deceptive or misleading posts;
- Posts that are in violation of any intellectual property rights;
- Posts that are in violation of any law or regulation;
- Posts that are otherwise inappropriate or offensive;
- Materials, photographs or videos that feature another person, or the details of another person, that you have posted without that person’s consent;
- Posts that are advertisements or are commercial in nature (unless we give you permission) or posts that are “junk mail” or SPAM; or
- Posts that pose or create a privacy or security risk to any person.
We reserve the right to delete or modify any post, in our absolute discretion, including where it contains material, which in our opinion, does not comply with these guidelines, or to block any user for failing to comply with these guidelines, or who seeks to damage the community, or displays threatening, bullying or offensive behaviour towards YOMM® community members or towards YOMM®.
Continued behaviour of this nature will result in the offending user/s being blocked and may be reported.
To the extent permitted by law, we hold no liability for any loss or damage caused by or in connection with the removal of, or modification of, any post or comment or if you are blocked access or reported to the relevant social media platform due to your behaviour.

We LOVE being able to reward our wonderful members for genuine interactions on our site and will do our best, if you’re a lucky prize recipient, to deliver your prize to you. Please note that we will attempt delivery a maximum of two times, from there if you haven’t been able to be home to accept delivery then your prize will be left at your local post office for you to arrange collection at your own expense. We do our very best to ensure we can deliver so to help us please ensure your profile is up to date and that you’ve included a phone number in case we need to contact you. If you have unsubscribed or haven’t provided a phone number it makes it difficult to contact you in regards to prize delivery and your prize may not be able to be delivered – we are not liable for any missing prizes.
