  1. Wedding & Co is a Neutral Venue.

Wedding & Co is an innovative community and marketplace for the wedding industry. Wedding & Co is not a wedding product or service provider, wedding vendor or an agent representative. Wedding & Co 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 Wedding Suppliers ("Supplier Members"). We and the Site function solely as a neutral venue and digital clearinghouse where Wedding Members and Wedding Suppliers 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 our Website, the accuracy of listings, or the ability of Wedding Suppliers to provide items or services and we are not responsible for the actions or inactions of Wedding Members or Wedding Suppliers.

Wedding Members: You acknowledge the following: Wedding & Co does not provide any of the products or services advertised or offered by Wedding Suppliers. We do not endorse any Suppliers, nor do we guarantee the quality of their goods or services.

Any transaction you enter into with a Vendor Member is strictly between you and the Wedding Suppliers, and Wedding & Co is not a party to that transaction. Any dispute you have with a Wedding Supplier is between you and the Wedding Supplier, and we Wedding & Co will not be a party to that dispute, except regarding your use of the Site, as discussed in Section 32.

We use techniques to help verify the identity of Wedding Suppliers when they register for memberships on our Site; however, Wedding & Co cannot and will not guarantee each service provider's identity; nor can we guarantee their capabilities. We have implemented a user-managed feedback system to help you evaluate Wedding Suppliers with whom you are considering transacting business. In addition, We cannot guarantee that information provided by or about Wedding Suppliers on the Site is accurate. You should use Wedding & Co as a starting point for identifying vendors/suppliers 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 Wedding Suppliers receiving contact information for you in accordance with the terms and conditions governing these programs.

Vendor Members: You acknowledge the following: Wedding & Co 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. 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 Members is strictly between you and the Wedding Members, and Wedding & Co is not a party to that transaction. Any dispute you have with a Wedding Members is between you and the Wedding Members, and We will not be a party to that dispute. Vendor Members must list the true and correct name of their business on the Site and if there is a change to that business name, the Vendor Member must promptly update Wedding & Co and may need to provide additional documentation for proof of name change.

Feedback Rules:
1. Members may only leave one feedback item per unique transaction, whether positive, neutral, or negative, for any other Wedding Supplier.
2. The Member leaving the review must have conducted business with the Wedding Supplier 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). Wedding & Co does not accept editable documents or email correspondence. Wedding & Co reserves the right to request additional information regarding proof of business.
3. By submitting feedback, you agree that feedback is subject to compliance audit by the Wedding & Co Compliance Team at any time. Any feedback item investigated by the Wedding & Co Compliance Team may be temporarily or permanently removed.
In order to protect the integrity of the Rating and Review system, Wedding & Co will only consider removing a feedback item under the following scenarios:
1. If feedback posted contains language that is profane, vulgar, and discriminatory or contains adult material.
2. If Wedding & Co is provided with a court order directing Wedding & Co to remove or modify the feedback.
3. If feedback posted makes any reference to actions taken or purported to be taken by Wedding & Co or any law enforcement organization.
