Use of WR’s Site
Certain areas of the Site provide a place for Users to interact with other Users and book services offered by such Users. However, WR does not provide any such User services, and is not an agent or representative for any User. Therefore, WR has no control over any User’s activity on the Site, including interactions between Users, and does not make any representations regarding the quality, accuracy or safety of the services being provided by a User, or the activities or transactions between Users.
You acknowledge that the Site is a neutral venue and not a broker, and you are solely responsible for your interactions with other Users. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor disputes between you and other Users. WR shall have no liability for your interactions with other Users, or for any User’s action or inaction.
Wedding Realm is a Neutral Venue
WR offers a unique Site for both the wedding industry and for prospective brides and grooms. WR is not a wedding product or service provider, wedding vendor or an agent representative. WR 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"). WR 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.
WR is not involved in or a party to the actual transaction between Members. As a result, WR has no control over the existence, quality, accuracy, safety, or legality of the transactions that take place on our Site, the accuracy of listings, the ability of Wedding Vendors to provide items or perform services, the ability of Wedding Members to pay for any goods and services, and WR makes no representations or warranties and are not liable or responsible for the actions or inactions of Members or Vendor Members. WR does not endorse any particular vendor.
Vendor Members agree that all Members and Wedding Members may share any and all information about the Vendor Members on the Wedding Members’ social media pages and any other website.

You further acknowledge that, by acceptance of your Idea, WR does not waive any rights to use similar or related ideas previously known to WR, developed by its employees, or obtained from sources other than you.
Responsibility for Public Postings and Content
Responsibility for what is posted in public areas of the Site lies with each User – you alone are responsible for the material you post or otherwise make available in public areas of the Site. You alone are responsible for assessing the credibility of other User postings. We do not control the material that you or others may post or otherwise make available in such areas, and you understand that we have no obligation to monitor any such material or to edit or delete it. However, we reserve the right to do so. We are not a publisher of user posts and we are not responsible for their accuracy or legality.
Rating and Review Disputes. 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 WR members and a machine calculated feedback score. You further acknowledge that WR does not make judgments on the truth or accuracy of opinions or statements.
Members may only leave one feedback item per unique transaction, whether positive, neutral, or negative, for any other Vendor Member.
The Member leaving the review must have conducted business with the Vendor Member and be able to provide proof of that business, such as a signed contract or formal proof of payment (i.e., cashed check, credit card statement, paid invoice, or receipt). WR does not accept editable documents or email correspondence. WR reserves the right to request additional information regarding proof of business.
By submitting feedback, you agree that feedback is subject to compliance audit by the WR Compliance Team at any time. Any feedback item investigated by the BT Compliance Team may be temporarily or permanently removed.
In order to protect the integrity of the Rating and Review system, WR will only consider removing a feedback item under the following scenarios:
If feedback posted contains language that is profane, vulgar, discriminatory or contains adult material.
If WR is provided with a court order directing WR to remove or modify the feedback.
If feedback posted makes any reference to actions taken or purported to be taken by WR or any law enforcement organization.
If feedback posted seeks to elicit or solicit any Member's contact information, such as other Member email addresses, for any non-WR related commercial or business purposes, or to transmit any unsolicited advertising, "junk mail," "spam," or "chain letters".
If the Member who left feedback cannot be reached by WR or fails, within one (1) month from the date WR attempts to contact such member as part of the dispute process, to validate that the business was conducted with the Vendor Member.
If feedback contains personally identifiable information of other members, personnel of Vendor Members or any other person. Personally identifiable information includes, but is not limited to, full names, date of birth, physical addresses, email addresses, credit card numbers, social security numbers or any other identification number provided by a government.
Registration and Log In
To access certain features or areas of the Site, you may be required to provide personal and/or demographic information as part of a registration or log-in process. In addition, certain features of the Site are only available to our registered users, and to access those areas of the Site you will be required to log in using your username and password.
You agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the applicable registration or log-in form, and you are responsible for keeping such information up-to-date (this includes your contact information, so that we can reliably contact you). Failure to accurately and completely provide, and timely update, information about yourself is reasonable grounds for us to suspend or terminate your account and refuse you service in the future. The information you submit must describe you (you may not impersonate another person or entity), and you may not sell, share or otherwise transfer your account information.
You are responsible for all activity occurring when the Site is accessed through your account, whether authorized by you or not. Therefore, if you create an account, be sure to protect the confidentiality of your account password. We are not liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to protect your password or account information.
If you are a business (including a vendor) and experience a dissolution, merger or other significant change in personnel (e.g., sale of company), then we, in our sole discretion, have the right to determine whether to keep active, transfer or terminate your account, including all User reviews and other Site Content previously associated with such account.
Billing Policies. You are responsible for paying any and all applicable fees (including subscription fees) as set forth in any agreement entered into (i) through the Site (including for any mobile application or goods or services provided by a User to another User (a “User Provided Service”)) or (ii) by clicking through to another digital property or mobile application (including through our credit card processing firms) that requires payment, and applicable taxes associated with the Site in a timely manner with a valid payment method.
Charges on Your Account. You are responsible for all charges incurred under your account made by you or anyone who uses your account. If your payment method fails or you are past due on amounts owed, we may collect fees owed using other collection mechanisms. Your account may be deactivated without notice to you if payment is past due, regardless of the dollar amount. You are also responsible for paying any taxes imposed on your use of the Site or any services contained therein (including for any User Provided Service), including, but not limited to, sales, use or value-added taxes. To the extent WR is obligated to collect such taxes, the applicable tax will be added to your billing account.
Authorization; Payment Processing. You expressly authorize WR to debit or credit any monies from the payment method you have chosen. Authorization to charge your chosen payment method account will remain in effect until you cancel or modify your preferences within the Site; provided, however, that such notice will not affect charges submitted before WR could reasonably act. The vendor shall be responsible for all fees associated with the processing of the payment method, including payment processing and associated bank fees.
Booking Fees. If applicable, WR may collect a booking or other fee. Any such fees will be disclosed to you at your time of registration or at the time of booking.
Correcting Mistakes in Payments to Vendors and Customers. We reserve the right to fix any processing errors we discover. We will correct any processing errors by debiting or crediting the payment method used for the erroneous WR refund or reimbursement. Users will look solely to other Users (including vendors) to resolve any payment error made by such User, and WR will have no liability for such errors.
Customer Website Domains. We also provide wedding website customized domain or similar service subscriptions in annual increments and related services (“WWCD”). Occasional service outages, downtime or disruptions to functionality may occur that we do not or cannot control. If such outages, downtime or disruptions occur, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to assist with restoring service as soon as possible. We are not liable or responsible for damages if such outages occur. To the extent available, we will register the domain for your WWCD and act as your nominee only. Any and all responsibility and liability associated with the WWCD domain name or content on the domain is yours. We reserve the right at any time to reject (e.g., at the time of selection or any time afterward), abandon or transfer (including on your behalf) any domains and/or wedding websites in the event that we receive notification that the domain infringes or allegedly infringes any third-party right or for any other reason. After selecting a domain name, it may take an estimated twenty-four (24) business hours for your website to be viewable online (although no guarantees are made by us with respect thereto). If the selected domain expires, the wedding website will revert to a subdomain selected by The Knot in its sole discretion.
Automatic Membership Renewal (“Auto-Renew”). To the extent WR offers Users membership in any Site (including a WWCD), such memberships may renew automatically for successive periods unless otherwise agreed to in writing. Without limiting the foregoing, if you sign up, upgrade or renew your membership, you are automatically entered into our auto-renew program unless otherwise specified in the applicable terms or agreement. This means that, unless otherwise specified in the applicable terms or agreement, we will charge your selected payment method at the start of each new membership term and during the membership term. In order to avoid billing of fees for the renewal term to your selected payment method, you must cancel your subscription before it renews as indicated in the applicable terms or agreement.
You may cancel your membership by contacting WR through our Contact Page. If you are enrolled in a monthly or other periodic payment plan and you decide to cancel during the membership period, you acknowledge and agree that, unless otherwise agreed in writing, you may continue to be billed on a monthly or other applicable periodic basis until your originally scheduled membership expiration date.
Users acknowledge that they are submitting payment directly to the Beneficiary (via a third-party payment service or any other payment method) and therefore we are not responsible for lost payments, identity theft, fraud or refunds.
In order for a Beneficiary to receive cash or other payment from a User, the Beneficiary will be required to link to their payment account with a third-party payment processor. In addition, each User will complete every form, document and online entry field in connection with a Cash Gifting Service and represents and warrants that all such information provided therein will be true, correct and complete.
The Cash Gifting Service is a feature offered as a convenience to Users. Without limiting any other rights we have set forth herein we reserve the right to suspend, terminate, freeze or close any account in accordance the terms of the section ‘Suspension or Termination of Access’ below. Accounts may be frozen at the sole discretion of us or the third-party service provider until a review has been conducted and the validity of the account is confirmed.
The communications between you and us via the Site use electronic means, whether you visit the Site or send us an email, or whether we post notices on the Site or communicate with you via email. For contractual purposes, you consent to receive communications from us and Vendor Members, including marketing emails, in an electronic form and you agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications would satisfy if it were in writing. The foregoing does not affect your non-waivable rights.
