WeddingHub EG is a Neutral Venue
WeddingHub EG is an innovative online destination for the wedding market-related services. WeddingHub EG by itself is not a wedding product, wedding vendor or an agent representative. WeddingHub EG members (hereunder referred to as “Members”) include prospective brides and grooms (collectively hereunder referred to as “Wedding Members”) and parties offering services related to Weddings (hereunder referred to as “Vendor Members”). We and the Site function solely as a neutral venue and digital destination 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 interaction between Members. As a result, We have no control over the quality, accuracy, safety, or legality of the interactions that take place on our Website, the accuracy of listings, or the ability of Wedding Vendors to provide items or services and we are not responsible for the actions or inactions of Wedding Members or Vendor Members.
- Wedding Members
You acknowledge the following: WeddingHub EG does not provide any of the products or services advertised or offered by Vendor Members. Any and all communications, correspondence, verbal or written, made with regard to products and services offered through the WeddingHub EG website are not provided by us and are specifically and solely between you and the Vendor Member. Any interaction/transaction you enter into with a Vendor Member is strictly between you and the Vendor Member, and WeddingHub EG is not a party to that interaction/transaction. Any dispute you have with a Vendor Member is between you and the Vendor Member, and We will not be a party to that dispute.
We use techniques to help verify the identity of Wedding Vendors when they register for memberships on our Site. 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 and/or up to date. We will periodically review the information listed by Vendor Members, but We do not ensure that it is always contemporaneous. You acknowledge that participation in certain features, 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: WeddingHub EG is 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 interaction/transaction you enter into with a Wedding Member is strictly between you and the Wedding Member, and WeddingHub EG is not a party to that interaction/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.
