Last Revised November 15, 2018
The Site is an innovative community and marketplace for the wedding industry. WeddingWire is not a wedding product or service provider , wedding vendor or an agent representative. Site members ("Members") include prospective brides and grooms, newlyweds and their Wedding guests (collectively, “Wedding Members") and companies and other third parties offering products and services related to Weddings ("Vendor Members"). We and the Site function solely as a neutral venue and digital clearinghouse where Wedding Members and Vendor Members may connect for a particular type of service or product. We are not involved in or a party to the actual transaction between Members. As a result, We have no control over the quality, accuracy, safety, or legality of the transactions that take place on the Site, the accuracy of listings, or the ability of Vendor Members to provide items or services and We or our affiliates are not responsible for the actions or inactions of Wedding Members or Vendor Members.
You acknowledge the following: We do not provide any of the products or services advertised or offered by Vendor Members. We do not endorse any Vendor Member, nor do We guarantee the quality of their goods or services. Any and all communications, correspondence, verbal or written, or any warranties or representations, made with regard to products and services offered through the Site are not provided by us and are specifically and solely between you and the Vendor Member. Any transaction you enter into with a Vendor Member is strictly between you and the Vendor Member, and WeddingWire is not a party to that transaction. Any dispute you have with a Vendor Member is between you and the Vendor Member, and We and our affiliates will not be a party to that dispute, except regarding your use of the Site, as discussed in Section 32 and 33.
We use techniques to help verify the identity of Vendor Members when they register for memberships on our Site; however, We cannot and will not guarantee any service provider's identity; nor can we guarantee their capabilities. We have implemented a user-managed feedback system to help you evaluate Vendor Members with whom you are considering transacting business. In addition, We cannot guarantee that information provided by or about Vendor Members on the Site is accurate. You should use the Site as a starting point for identifying vendors to provide the products and services you need for your wedding, then conduct your own research to ensure that vendors you choose to do business with are appropriate for you. You acknowledge that participation in certain programs, when and if available, may under certain circumstances result in Vendor Members receiving contact information for you in accordance with the terms and conditions governing these programs.
You acknowledge the following: We will not endorse you or your products or services. We are in no way responsible for assisting you in reaching an agreement with Wedding Members; nor are We responsible for assisting you in providing goods and services to Wedding Members; Vendor Members are the only entities liable for fulfilling any legal requirements applicable to their professional activity; we are not responsible for ensuring that Vendor Members are appropriately licensed. While all Wedding Members are required to give us accurate information about themselves, We cannot and will not verify this information or guarantee the ability of Wedding Members to complete payment for any of the products or services you provide. Any transaction you enter into with a Wedding Member is strictly between you and the Wedding Member, and WeddingWire is not a party to that transaction. Any dispute you have with a Wedding Member is between you and the Wedding Member, and We will not be a party to that dispute. After We and the Vendor Member have terminated our relationship, We shall be entitled to retain all reviews associated with a Vendor Member on the Site as well as basic directory information, including, without limitation, business name, address and telephone number.
Membership to WeddingWire is available only to entities and individuals who are at least the older of 18 years of age and the age of majority in their jurisdiction, and who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Our services are not available to minors or to temporarily or indefinitely suspended Members. Membership in the Site is void where prohibited. Your WeddingWire membership may not be transferred or sold to another party. If you are registering as a business entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement. If you are registering as an individual, you represent and warrant that you are at least the older of 18 years of age and the age of majority in your jurisdiction, and are able to enter into a legally binding contract. Members who engage in the sale of goods and services must have a valid business operations license, as applicable. By joining WeddingWire, you agree to (i) provide us with accurate, complete information about yourself and to update this information as needed; (ii) abide by all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the WeddingWire.ca Vow of Conduct and the WeddingWire.ca Community Guidelines (see both below); (iii) safeguard your username and password; and (iv) be responsible for all activity of your membership account. "Basic," "Free Trial," "Lite," or other unpaid vendor memberships may be offered by WeddingWire periodically. These unpaid vendor memberships do not guarantee any advertising placement or other benefits. WeddingWire reserves the right to modify the terms of or cancel any such unpaid vendor memberships.
You acknowledge and agree that We have the sole discretion to set forth and post additional terms and conditions for your use of the Site at various places throughout the Site including, but not limited to, fees associated with certain services or uses. You agree that those additional terms and conditions shall be considered an effective amendment to this Agreement and said terms and conditions shall be incorporated herein. Furthermore, you expressly agree that if there is any conflict between those additional terms and conditions and the Terms set forth herein, the additional terms and conditions shall govern.
There are currently NO minimum fees to join the Site for Wedding Members or Vendor Members. Optional fee-based services are available but participation is NOT mandatory. See below for details.
We may offer optional fee-based functionality/services, which may include services provided by third parties and your use of such functionality/services shall be subject to any applicable additional terms and conditions which may include the third parties' terms and conditions. Your credit card will not be charged unless and until you agree to use that fee-based functionality/service and/or to incur a charge with WeddingWire. The fee and timing of payments for the fee-based functionality/service will be described separately as part of the applicable fee-based functionality/service.
Vendor Members with valid Vendor Accounts may opt into additional paid services ("Premium Services"). WeddingWire may list the prices for these Premium Services on the Site, but it reserves the right to change these prices and to offer discounts and temporary promotions.
In the event you believe that WeddingWire has charged you in error, you must contact WeddingWire Member Services at support AT weddingwire DOT ca within 90 days after such charge. No refunds will be given for any charges which are more than 90 days old.
If applicable, based on the various optional fee-based programs, You irrevocably and expressly authorize Us to debit or credit, as applicable, any monies to the account that you have identified for Us. You agree that it is your responsibility to maintain a valid, non-expired credit card on file with us while engaging in fee-based activities on our Site. You agree that if you do not maintain a valid, non-expired card on file with us during any billing attempt, you may be subject to interest and penalties as enumerated below. You irrevocably and expressly authorize Us to withhold any monies and/or debit any monies from any account that you have identified to Wedd for any charge backs, fees, costs, deductions, adjustments and any other amounts owed to WeddingWire. We reserve our rights to all actions and remedies in connection with any monies owed to WeddingWire. You will indemnify, defend and hold us harmless for any claims, demands or causes of actions that We take toward any identified account pursuant to this Section.
If, for any reason, any fees you owe Us have not been received or in any manner realized by Us ("Unpaid Fees"), you agree to pay such Unpaid Fees immediately. In addition, We may charge interest, in the amount of 2.0% per month (24% per annum) (or the maximum amount allowed by law), on any unpaid account balance that you maintain. Any partial payments made by Members will first be applied to the most recent fees owed to Us, including interest. We reserve the right to waive or reduce the amount of any Unpaid Fees, penalties, or interest at any time. You also agree to pay any attorney fees, and other costs of collection incurred by us with respect to any Unpaid Fees. You also consent and authorize us, in our sole discretion, to make appropriate reports to credit reporting agencies, financial institutions, tax agencies and law enforcement authorities, and cooperate with them in any resulting investigation or prosecution. Notwithstanding the foregoing, We agree that we will not charge any late fees or interest to a Member's credit card.

If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which states: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."
The Site offers the opportunity for Members and others to submit information to the Site through many means, including, without limitation, sharing information with other Members through the Community, other message boards and postings, uploading photos, videos, text, comments, posting on social media associated with the Site, Vendor Member advertisements and listings. Any information submitted to the Site, whether by a Member or not, shall be deemed to be "Submitted Information". By using these functions, you agree to abide by the terms of this Agreement and the Community Guidelines, below. We reserve the right but not the obligation to monitor posts made to the Community and other Submitted Information. Members are solely responsible for the content of their Submitted Information.
Our Site acts as a passive conduit for any and all communication and/or distribution of information, and We do not control the Submitted Information of Members. We cannot and will not evaluate and We are not responsible for the accuracy, reliability, completeness, veracity or suitability of any Submitted Information or for verifying the identity of the submitting Member. Like any information you obtain through the Internet, you should verify Submitted Information before acting upon it. WeddingWire is not responsible for any losses you may incur as a result of relying on Submitted Information, even if We were advised of the possibility of such losses.
By posting Submitted Information to any part of the Site, you automatically grant, and you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant, to Us and our affliates an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, fully-paid-up, royalty-free, worldwide license (with the right to sublicense at multiple levels) to use, copy, publicly perform, publicly display, telecommunicate, reformat, translate, excerpt (in whole or in part) and distribute such Submitted Information for any purpose and in any format on or in connection with the Site, Our business, or the promotion thereof, to prepare derivative works of, or incorporate into other works, such Submitted Information, and to grant and authorize sublicenses of the foregoing.

If you undermine the integrity of our Rating and Review system in any way, your membership may be suspended or terminated. Each Vendor Member acknowledges that your Rating and Review ("feedback") consists of opinions left by other Site Members and a machine calculated feedback score. You further acknowledge that WeddingWire does not make judgments on the veracity of opinions or statements.
In order to protect the integrity of the Rating and Review system, We will only consider removing a feedback item under the following scenarios:
Vendor Members may use the Vendor Member interface provided in the Site to initiate a review dispute or send an email to support AT weddingwire DOT ca. All Vendor Members in receipt of a feedback item will have the opportunity to respond publicly to the feedback within the Vendor Member interface.

- You acknowledge and agree that the Site is a neutral venue and that all transactions for services are made by and between you and other Members only and, therefore, We cannot, do not and will not make any comments on behalf of you or your services. As a consequence, you acknowledge that the key component and integrity of the Site is the ability of Members to leave Ratings and Reviews about you and/or your services (whether positive, neutral or negative) AND for other Members to read and evaluate those feedback reviews and make voluntary choices based upon that feedback. Therefore, in order to preserve the key component and integrity of the Site, you shall NOT:

In no event shall We be responsible for providing the goods and/or services indicated in a Coupon. We shall have no liability for the goods and/or services provided under a Coupon.

You hereby release WeddingWire and our affiliates, officers, directors, employees, shareholders, agents from and you waive, and release us and our affiliates, officers, directors, employees, shareholders, and agents from, any and all claims, causes of action, damages, liabilities, costs, and attorneys' fees and expenses whatsoever, known or unknown, arising out of the goods and/or services provided in connection with the Coupons. Additional terms and conditions may be contained on each Coupon. Any violation of the Coupon terms and conditions will make the Coupon void. We are not responsible for lost or stolen Coupons.

You agree to indemnify and hold WeddingWire and our affiliates, officers, directors, shareholders, agents, and employees harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising in any manner in whole or in part out of your use of the Site, including but not limited to (i) your advertising, provision of or failure to pay for goods or services promoted on the Site; and (ii) claims that any of your Submitted Information includes materials owned by third parties without authorization, was defamatory or harassing, or otherwise violated the rights of any third party.
This Site may contain links to other sites which are provided solely as a convenience to you, or which are provided by other Members. WeddingWire is not responsible for the availability of external sites or resources linked to the Site, and does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any content, advertising, products or other materials on or available from such sites or resources. Transactions that occur between you and such third-party sites are strictly between you and the third party and are not the responsibility of WeddingWire. Because WeddingWire is not responsible for the availability or accuracy of these outside resources or their contents, you should review the terms and conditions and privacy policies of these linked sites, as their policies may differ from ours.
You shall comply with all applicable domestic and international laws, statutes, ordinances and regulations regarding your use of our service and your listing, shipping, transporting, and solicitation of offers to ship and transport items.
This Agreement shall be governed by Spanish legislation, which shall be applied to the validity, interpretation, execution and compliance thereof. Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to your use of this Site, to the goods or services provided through the Site, this Agreement, or to any acts or omissions for which you may contend, We are liable, including but not limited to any claim or controversy as to arbitrability ("Dispute"), shall be finally, and exclusively, settled by arbitration, as further specified in Section 33, below. Only the extent that the arbitration provisions are inapplicable or unenforceable with regard to a particular Dispute, such Dispute shall be submitted to the Courts and Tribunals of the city of Barcelona in the country of Spain. Consequently, both parties expressly renounce their own jurisdiction. If either party employs attorneys to enforce any right in connection with any Dispute or lawsuit, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys' fees.
Disputes between you and WeddingWire regarding the Site and our services should be reported to support AT WeddingWire DOT ca . We will attempt to resolve any disputes you have with us. Because We are a neutral venue, We are not responsible for resolving any disputes between you and members regarding services or transactions. In accordance with Section 32, above, any arbitration related to a Dispute shall be held before one arbitrator under the commercial arbitration rules of the International Centre for Dispute Resolution ("ICDR") in force at that time. The arbitration shall be conducted in Barcelona, Spain. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the ICDR rules. Should no ICDR rule regarding Barcelona, Spain selection of an arbitrator be in effect, the Member shall select an arbitrator from a panel of arbitrators acceptable to WeddingWire. In any arbitration, the parties will split the cost of the filing fee, plus the costs associated with the first day of arbitration, with the remaining costs of arbitration paid by the non-prevailing party, provided, however, that in in the State of Maine in the United States any cost to the consumer shall be limited to the cost of filing a court case. To begin the arbitration process, a party must make a written demand therefore.
Any judgment upon an award rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction in Barcelona, Spain.. The arbitrators shall not have the power to award damages in connection with any Dispute in excess of actual compensatory damages and shall not multiply actual damages or award consequential, punitive or exemplary damages, and each party irrevocably waives any claim thereto. The agreement to arbitrate shall not be construed as an agreement to the joinder or consolidation of an arbitration under this Agreement with an arbitration of disputes or claims of any non-party, regardless of the nature of the issues or disputes involved.
THIS AGREEMENT PROVIDES THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND WEDDINGWIRE WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION. YOU THUS GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT TO ASSERT OR DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS. YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN OR BRING CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS. YOUR RIGHTS WILL BE DETERMINED BY NEUTRAL ARBITRATORS AND NOT A JUDGE OR JURY. You are entitled to a fair hearing, but the arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than rules applicable in court. Arbitrator decisions are enforceable as any court order and are subject to very limited review by a court. By using Our goods and services or the Site, you consent to these restrictions.
WeddingWire uses industry standard practices to protect your personal information, including firewalls and Secure Socket Layers. We utilize several different security techniques to protect data from unauthorized access, but, Except as specified in a Terms of Purchase, We cannot guarantee the security of our system. Except as specified in a Terms of Purchase, we also do not guarantee uninterrupted or secure access to our system, as the operation of our Site can be interrupted by numerous factors outside of our control.
