Wedbuddy is not responsible or liable for and does not endorse the privacy practices or the services, content, advertising or other features of the websites to which it or any User links. Your use of any third party website is subject to the privacy policy, terms of use, and other agreements of those websites, and not of Wedbuddy.

4. Users of the Service

There are several types of users of the Service. Anyone who visits and views content on the Service is a "User," and agrees to be bound by the Terms of Use. Any User who creates an account on the Service is an "Account Holder." An Account Holder who creates a "Personal Website" on the Service for an individual is a "Organizer." Any Account Holder, who views a Personal Website, whether or not he/she posts information, materials or content to a Personal Website, is a "Guest;" a Guest may be promoted to the role of Organizer by another Organizer.

5. Intended Use

The Service is intended for use in the United States of America by individuals over the age of 13. We make no representation that the Service or "Content" (meaning collectively, "User Submissions" as defined in Section 6, and "Service Content," as defined in Section 8(c)) are appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States. Those who choose to access the Service from other locations do so at their own risk, and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent applicable. We reserve the right to limit the availability of the Service to any person, geographic area, or jurisdiction, at any time and in our sole discretion.

6. Personal Information and Privacy Policy

In the course of your use of the Service, you may provide certain personal information to Wedbuddy ("Personal Information"). Our use of any Personal Information is governed by the privacy policy (the "Privacy Policy"). You may upload information about yourself or others such as remarks, pictures, photographs, images, illustrations, text, audio and video clips, links, or other information for a Personal Website or on a User forum ("User Submission(s)").

Wedbuddy's Privacy Policy describes to Users how their Personal Information is gathered, held, and disseminated, and guides Wedbuddy's online conduct in the collection and use of all Personal Information. The Privacy Policy is an integral part of the Terms of Use and when you agree to be bound by the Terms of Use you also agree and consent to the Privacy Policy in its entirety, including how your Personal Information is gathered, utilized and disclosed. Users must review the Privacy Policy before using the Service.

7. User Conduct

7(a) Personal License

We hereby grant you a limited personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license ("Personal License") to access and use the Service, including any Personal Website which you have been invited to use or of which you are the Organizer, and to download and print copies of any User Submissions to which you have properly gained access, for your own personal, non-commercial use, and only if you do not remove, modify or obscure any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary notices from such User Submissions. This Personal License is revocable at any time without notice and with or without cause.

7(b) Minors

Wedbuddy encourages family and friends of all ages to be part of an individual's Wedbuddy community. However, care must be taken to protect children of all ages, especially those under the age of 13. Consequently, children under the age of 18 are not permitted to create or maintain their own Personal Websites - a parent or guardian must register and take responsibility for any Personal Website created for a person under 18 years of age. We also do not permit children under the age of 13 to register as Account Holders. Instead, their parent or guardian must register as an Account Holder, and must supervise their child's activities as necessary. If you believe that a child has posted User Submissions on our Service without the consent and supervision of a parent or guardian, please contact us at admin@wedbuddy.com so that we can take appropriate action.

7(c) User Account Information and Passwords

When you register an account with the Service, you will provide certain Personal Information and create a unique password. You agree that you will provide accurate information when creating an account or Personal Website on the Service and that you will keep your account information up-to-date. After you have registered an account, you can change the password at any time on the "Settings" page. You are solely responsible for protecting the confidentiality of your password and may not disclose your password to any other person. In the event that an unauthorized user gains access to the password-protected area of the Service as a result of your acts or omissions, you agree that Wedbuddy shall not be liable for the consequences of any such unauthorized use. If you believe that there has been unauthorized use of your account, you must notify us immediately at admin@wedbuddy.com. Additionally, we recommend that you immediately change your password. If you become aware of any suspicious activity relating to your Wedbuddy account, or need additional assistance you may contact us at support@wedbuddy.com.

7(e) Organizer Terms

You must be at least 18 years old to create and maintain a Personal Website. If you are under 18, your parent or legal guardian may create and maintain a Personal Website for you.

7(f) Personal Website Preservation

If you wish to preserve any Content for your personal use or archive, you are strongly advised to print hard copies of the relevant pages (e.g. Story, Updates, Guestbook, etc.) from time to time as a back-up copy in case of any accidental destruction of any or all of the Service.

7(g) Removal of Personal Website

Unless one of the other provisions of the Terms of Use applies: Wedbuddy and Wedbuddy will host Personal Websites at no charge to you (except for purchases made on our website) for at least one (1) year from the date you create your Personal Website. At the end of one (1) year, we may review your Personal Website for activity. If your Personal Website is still active, we may contact you and, if you wish, continue to maintain your Personal Website at no charge to you. If your Personal Website has been inactive for at least six (6) months as of the end of the first year, we may delete it. After the first year, we will periodically review your Personal Website for activity and may delete inactive Personal Websites after a six (6) month period of inactivity. You may deactivate your Personal Website at any time. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you agree that without prior notice and at its sole discretion, Wedbuddy may immediately terminate your Personal Website and/or delete any User Submissions you have made. Typical reasons for such action may include, but are not limited to, (a) breaches or violations of these Terms of Use or other incorporated agreements or guidelines, (b) requests by law enforcement or other government agencies, (c) a request by you, (d) discontinuance or material modification to the Service (or any part thereof), (e) unexpected technical or security issues or problems, and (f) extended periods (more than six months) of inactivity. You agree that all such terminations will be made in Wedbuddy's sole discretion and that Wedbuddy will in no way be liable to you or any third-party for deletion of your Personal Website or User Submissions.

7(h) License of User Submissions

All User Submissions shall remain your property. However, when you post User Submissions, you grant Wedbuddy a license to utilize, reproduce, perform and present in public or publicly, distribute, and create works derived from or inspired by your User Submissions, in any form, level of completeness, format, or medium as per the Terms of Use (the "Service License"). This Service License is non-exclusive, fully transferable, assignable, and sub-licensable, worldwide, does not generate royalties, and is deemed fully-paid.

You also hereby grant each other User a non-exclusive license to access, view, use, and reproduce for their own personal use, your User Submissions, as permitted through the functionality of the Service and under these Terms of Use (a "User License"). Such User License and Service Licenses will terminate automatically, for future use of User Submissions, within a commercially reasonable period after you remove or ask us to remove your User Submissions from the Service. However, this termination will not apply to the following: (a) licensed use of User Submissions prior to removal, or (b) licensed transmission of User Submissions made to other websites, persons, or media, prior to receipt of the license termination. Termination of these User and Service Licenses does not terminate our right to preserve, access and disclose your User Submissions if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with the legal process; (b) enforce these Terms of Use; (c) respond to claims that any User Submission violates the rights of third-parties; or (d) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Wedbuddy, its Users and/or the public.

7(i) Representations, Warranties and Compliance of User Submissions

You are legally responsible for your User Submissions. When you post a User Submission on a Personal Website, you represent and warrant that you have all necessary permissions to post the User Submission, and that it is not in violation of the Terms of Use or applicable laws.

If any part of your User Submission is not your original work, it is your responsibility to obtain permission from the copyright owner before you post your User Submission. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL WEDBUDDY BE LIABLE IN ANY WAY FOR ANY SUBMISSIONS POSTED ON OR MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH A PERSONAL WEBSITE BY YOU OR ANY OTHER USER.

7(j) Ownership of Submitted Ideas

ANY IDEAS YOU CHOOSE TO SUBMIT TO WEDBUDDY MAY BE USED BY US IN ANY MANNER WHATSOEVER WITHOUT ANY COMPENSATION, CREDIT OR OBLIGATION OF CONFIDENTIALITY TO YOU. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU SUBMIT ANY IDEAS TO US.

This license includes the right to reduce to practice, make, have made, use, import, export, sell, and offer to sell products and services incorporating, embodying, or using the Ideas (including, to the extent reasonably necessary, any ideas underlying the Ideas) and to authorize others to do the same.

Notices and counter-notices with respect to our Service should be sent to:
