Effective Date of Current Policy 11/19/2020
This web-site is intended to be a friendly, enjoyable and useful experience, but as with anything concerning any kind of transactions there are risks involved and we strongly advise you to understand all of these terms before joining.
Accepting These Terms
The Terms outlined here are a legally binding contract between you and WeddAssist.com.
Please note that Section Disputes with WeddAssist.com, contains an arbitration clause and class action waiver. By agreeing to the Terms, you agree to resolve all disputes through binding individual arbitration, which means that you waive any right to have those disputes decided by a judge or jury, and that you waive your right to participate in class actions, class arbitrations, or representative actions.
This contract sets out your rights and responsibilities when you use WeddAssist.com.com, our mobile apps, and the other services provided by WeddAssist.com (we’ll refer to WeddAssist.com, our mobile apps and other services as our “Services”), so please read it carefully. By using any of our Services (even just browsing one of our websites), you’re agreeing to the Terms. If you don’t agree with the Terms, you may not use our Services.
Both WeddAssist.com and sellers process members’ personal information (for example, buyer name, email address, and shipping address) and are therefore considered separate and independent data controllers of buyers’ personal information under EU law. That means that each party is responsible for the personal information it processes in providing the Services. For example, if a seller accidentally discloses a buyer’s name and email address when fulfilling another buyer’s order, the seller, not WeddAssist.com, will be responsible for that unauthorized disclosure.
If, however, WeddAssist.com and sellers are found to be joint data controllers of buyers’ personal information, and if WeddAssist.com is sued, fined, or otherwise incurs expenses because of something that you did as a joint data controller of buyer personal information, you agree to indemnify WeddAssist.com for the expenses it occurs in connection with your processing of buyer personal information. See Section Indemnification below for more information about your indemnification obligations to WeddAssist.com.
Your Account with WeddAssist.com
You’ll need to create an account with WeddAssist.com to use some of our Services. Here are a few rules about accounts with WeddAssist.com:
You must be 16 years or older to use our Services. Minors under 16 are not permitted to use WeddAssist.com or the Services. You are responsible for any and all account activity conducted by a minor on your account.
Be honest with us. Provide accurate information about yourself. It’s not OK to use false information or impersonate another person or company through your account.
Choose an appropriate username. You may not use language in your username that is offensive, vulgar, or infringes someone’s intellectual property rights, or otherwise violates the Terms.
You’re responsible for your account. You’re solely responsible for any activity on your account.
Protect your password. As we mentioned above, you’re solely responsible for any activity on your account, so it’s important to keep your account password secure.
These Terms don’t create any agency, partnership, joint venture, employment, or franchisee relationship between you and WeddAssist.com.
Content that you post using our Services is your content (so let’s refer to it as “Your Content”). We don’t make any claim to it, which includes anything you post using our Services.
Responsibility for Your Content. You understand that you are solely responsible for Your Content. You represent that you have all necessary rights to Your Content and that you’re not infringing or violating any third party’s rights by posting it.
Permission to Use Your Content. By posting Your Content through our Services, you grant WeddAssist.com a license to use it. We don’t claim any ownership to Your Content, but we have your permission to use it to help WeddAssist.com function and grow. That way, we won’t infringe any rights you have in Your Content and we can help promote your store.
Rights You Grant WeddAssist.com. By posting Your Content, you grant WeddAssist.com a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, sub-licensable, perpetual license to use, display, edit, modify, reproduce, distribute, store, and prepare derivative works of Your Content. This allows us to provide the Services and to promote WeddAssist.com, your WeddAssist.com selected services, in any formats and through any channels, including across any WeddAssist.com Services, our partners, or third-party website or advertising medium. You agree not to assert any moral rights or rights of publicity against us for using Your Content. You also recognize our legitimate interest in using it, in accordance with the scope of this license, to the extent Your Content contains any personal information.
Reporting Unauthorized Content. WeddAssist.com has great respect for intellectual property rights, and is committed to following appropriate legal procedures to remove infringing content from the Services. If content that you own or have rights to has been posted to the Services without your permission and you want it removed, please follow the steps listed in our IPES (Intellectual, Prohibited, Extinct & Sanctions) Policy. If Your Content is alleged to infringe another person’s intellectual property, we will take appropriate action, from disabling it if we receive proper notice, up through termination of your account if you are found to be a repeat infringer. We’ll notify you if any of that happens.
Inappropriate, False, or Misleading Content. This should be common sense, but there are certain types of content we don’t want posted on WeddAssist.com’s Services (for legal reasons or otherwise). You agree that you will not post any content that is abusive, threatening, defamatory, obscene, vulgar, or otherwise offensive or in violation of our Community Policy, IPES (Intellectual, Prohibited, Extinct & Sanctions) Policy, or any part of our Terms. You also agree not to post any content that is false and misleading or uses the Services in a manner that is fraudulent or deceptive.
Your Use of Our Services
License to Use Our Services. We grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license to use our Services—subject to the Terms and the following restrictions in particular:
Don’t Use Our Services to Break the Law. You agree that you will not violate any laws in connection with your use of the Services. This includes any local, state, federal, and international laws that may apply to you. For example, it’s your responsibility to obtain any permits or licenses that your shop requires; you may not sell anything that violates any laws; you must comply with our IPES (Intellectual, Prohibited, Extinct & Sanctions) Policy and you may not engage in fraud (including false claims or infringement notices), theft, anti-competitive conduct, threatening conduct, or any other unlawful acts or crimes against WeddAssist.com, another WeddAssist.com user, or a third party.
Don’t Try to Harm Our Systems. You agree not to interfere with or try to disrupt our Services.
Share Your Ideas. We love your suggestions and ideas! They can help us improve your experience and our Services. Any unsolicited ideas or other materials you submit to WeddAssist.com (not including Your Content or items you sell through our Services) are considered non-confidential and non-proprietary to you. You grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, sub-licensable, perpetual license to use and publish those ideas and materials for any purpose, without compensation to you.
Talk to Us Online. From time to time, WeddAssist.com will provide you with certain legal information in writing. By using our Services, you’re agreeing to our Electronic Communications Policy, which describes how we provide that information to you. It says that we can send you information electronically (by email, etc.) instead of mailing you paper copies (it’s better for the environment), and that your electronic agreement is the same as your signature on paper.
Termination By You. We’d hate to see you go, but you may terminate your account with WeddAssist.com at any time from your account settings. Terminating your account will not affect the availability of some of Your Content that you posted through the Services prior to termination.
Termination By WeddAssist.com. We may terminate or suspend your account (and any related accounts) and your access to the Services at any time, for any reason, and without advance notice. If we do so, it’s important to understand that you don’t have a contractual or legal right to continue to use our Services. WeddAssist.com may refuse service to anyone, at any time, for any reason.
If you or WeddAssist.com terminate your account, you may lose any information associated with your account, including Your Content.
We May Discontinue the Services. WeddAssist.com reserves the right to change, suspend, or discontinue any of the Services at any time, for any reason. We will not be liable to you for the effect that any changes to the Services may have on you.
Survival. The Terms will remain in effect even after your access to the Service is terminated, or your use of the Service ends.
Warranties and Limitation of Liability
Content You Access. You may come across materials that you find offensive or inappropriate while using our Services. We make no representations concerning any content posted by users through the Services. WeddAssist.com is not responsible for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, or decency of content posted by users that you accessed through the Services. You release us from all liability relating to that content.
People You Interact With. You can use the Services to interact with other individuals, either online or in person. However, you understand that we do not screen users of our Services, and you release us from all liability relating to your interactions with other users. Please be careful and exercise caution and good judgment in all interactions with others, especially if you are meeting someone in person.
Warranties. WeddAssist.com is dedicated to making our Services the best they can be, but we’re not perfect and sometimes things can go wrong. You understand that our Services are provided “as is” and without any kind of warranty (express or implied). We are expressly disclaiming any warranties of title, non-infringement, merchantability, and fitness for a particular purpose, as well as any warranties implied by a course of performance, course of dealing, or usage of trade.
We do not guarantee that: (i) the Services will be secure or available at any particular time or location; (ii) any defects or errors will be corrected; (iii) the Services will be free of viruses or other harmful materials; or (iv) the results of using the Services will meet your expectations. You use the Services solely at your own risk. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, so the above limitations may not apply to you.
We hope this never happens, but if WeddAssist.com gets sued because of something that you did, you agree to defend and indemnify us. That means you’ll defend WeddAssist.com (including any of our employees) and hold us harmless from any legal claim or demand (including reasonable attorney’s fees) that arises from your actions, your use (or misuse) of our Services, your breach of the Terms, or your account’s infringement of someone else’s rights.
We reserve the right to handle our legal defense however we see fit, even if you are indemnifying us, in which case you agree to cooperate with us so we can execute our strategy.
Some members or visitors may choose to connect to WeddAssist or register an WeddAssist account using an external third-party application, such as Facebook, or an app developed using the WeddAssist API. Connecting your WeddAssist account to third-party applications or services is optional. If you choose to connect your account to a third-party application, WeddAssist may receive information from that application. We may use that information as part of providing the Services to you.
Changes to the Terms
We may update these Terms from time to time. If we believe that the changes are material, we’ll definitely let you know by doing one (or more) of the following: (1) posting the changes through the Services or (2) sending you an email or message about the changes. That way you can decide whether you want to continue using the Services. Changes will be effective upon the posting of the changes. You are responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any changes. Your use of the Services following the changes constitutes your acceptance of the updated Terms.
Some Finer Legal Points
The Terms, including all of the policies that make up the Terms, supersede any other agreement between you and WeddAssist.com regarding the Services. If any part of the Terms is found to be unenforceable, that part will be limited to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms will otherwise remain in full force and effect. Our failure to enforce any part of the Terms is not a waiver of our right to later enforce that or any other part of the Terms. We may assign any of our rights and obligations under the Terms.
