("Provider"), Vantiv and its designated Member Bank and Wells Fargo Merchant Services and its designated Member Bank (collectively "Acquirers") will provide you ("Sub-merchant") with certain payment processing services ("Services") in accordance with the terms of this Commercial Entity Agreement.

In consideration of Sub-merchant's receipt of credit or debit card funded payments, and participation in programs affiliated with MasterCard International Inc. ("MasterCard"), VISA U.S.A. Inc. ("VISA"), Discover ("Discover"), and certain similar entities (collectively, "Associations), Sub-merchant is required to (i) enter into a direct relationship with an entity that is a member of the Associations and (ii) agree to comply with Association rules as they pertain to applicable credit and debit card payments. By executing this Commercial Entity Agreement, Sub-merchant is fulfilling the Association rule of entering into a direct relationship with a Member of the Associations; however, Acquirers understand that Sub-merchant may have contracted with Provider to obtain certain processing services and that Provider may have agreed to be responsible to Sub-merchant for all or part of Merchant's obligations contained herein.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing recitals and of the mutual promises contained herein as well as by clicking-through and continuing to use Provider's services, the parties agree as follows:

Without limiting the foregoing, Sub-merchant agrees that it will fully comply with any and all confidentiality and security requirements of the USA Patriot Act (or similar law, rule or regulation), VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and/or Other Networks, including but not limited to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, the VISA Cardholder Information Security Program, the MasterCard Site Data Protection Program, and any other program or requirement that may be published and/or mandated by the Associations. For purposes of this section, Agents include, but are not limited to, Sub-merchant's software providers and/or equipment providers.

If appropriately indicated in Sub-merchant's agreement with Provider, Sub-merchant may be a limited-acceptance merchant, which means that Sub- merchant has elected to accept only certain Visa and MasterCard card types (i.e., consumer credit, consumer debit, and commercial cards) and must display appropriate signage to indicate the same. Acquirers have no obligation other than those expressly provided under the Operating Regulations and applicable law as they may relate to limited acceptance. Sub-merchant, and not Acquirer, will be solely responsible for the implementation of its decision for limited acceptance, including but not limited to policing the card type(s) accepted at the point of sale.

Sub-merchant shall only complete sales transactions produced as the direct result of bona fide sales made by Sub-merchant to cardholders, and is expressly prohibited from processing, factoring, laundering, offering, and/or presenting sales transactions which are produced as a result of sales made by any person or entity other than Merchant, or for purposes related to financing terrorist activities.

Sub-merchant may set a minimum transaction amount to accept a card that provides access to a credit account, under the following conditions: i) the minimum transaction amount does not differentiate between card issuers; ii) the minimum transaction amount does not differentiate between MasterCard, Visa, or any other acceptance brand; and iii) the minimum transaction amount does not exceed ten dollars (or any higher amount established by the Federal Reserve).

Sub-merchant must not i) require a cardholder to complete a postcard or similar device that includes the cardholder's account number, card expiration date, signature, or any other card account data in plain view when mailed, ii) add any tax to transactions, unless applicable law expressly requires that a Sub- merchant impose a tax (any tax amount, if allowed, must be included in the transaction amount and not collected separately), iii) request or use an account number for any purpose other than as payment for its goods or services, iv) disburse funds in the form of travelers checks if the sole purpose is to allow the cardholder to make a cash purchase of goods or services from Sub-merchant, v) disburse funds in the form of cash unless Sub-merchant is dispensing funds in the form of travelers checks, TravelMoney cards, or foreign currency (in such case, the transaction amount is limited to the value of the travelers checks, TravelMoney cards, or foreign currency, plus any commission or fee charged by the Sub-merchant), or Sub-merchant is participating in a cash back service, vi) submit any transaction receipt for a transaction that was previously charged back to the acquirers and subsequently returned to Sub-merchant, irrespective of cardholder approval, vii) accept a Visa consumer credit card or commercial Visa product issued by a U.S. issuer to collect or refinance an existing debt, viii) accept a card to collect or refinance an existing debit that has been deemed uncollectable by Sub-merchant, or ix) submit a transaction that represents collection of a dishonored check.

Neither Sub-merchant nor its Agent shall retain or store magnetic-stripe data subsequent to the authorization of a sales transaction.

3. Settlement

Upon receipt of Sub-merchant's sales data for card transactions through Provider Services, Acquirers will process Sub-merchant's sales data to facilitate the funds transfer between the various Associations and Sub-merchant. After Acquirer receives credit for such sales data, Acquirer will fund Sub-merchant, either directly to the Sub-merchant-Owned Designated Account or through Provider to an account designated by Provider ("Provider Designated Account"), at Acquirers' sole option, for such card transactions. Sub-merchant agrees that the deposit of funds to the Provider Designated Account shall discharge Acquirers of their settlement obligation to Sub-merchant, and that any dispute regarding the receipt or amount of settlement shall be between Provider and Merchant. Acquirers will debit the Provider Designated Account for funds owed to Acquirers as a result of the Services provided hereunder, unless a Sub-merchant-owned account is otherwise designated below. Further, if a cardholder disputes a transaction, if a transaction is charged back for any reason, or if Acquirers reasonably believe a transaction is unauthorized or otherwise unacceptable, the amount of such transaction may be charged back and debited from Merchant or Provider.

Acquirers shall bear no liability and have no obligations to correct any errors resulting from Sub- merchant's failure to comply with the duties and obligations of the preceding sentence.

For most users accessing the Internet from an Internet service provider the IP address will be different every time you log on. We use Log Data to monitor the use of Wedding.com and of our Service, and for the Website's technical administration.
Information Collected Upon Registration. If you desire to have access to certain restricted sections of the Website, you will be required to become a registered user, and to submit certain personally identifiable information to Wedding.com. This happens in a number of instances, such as when you sign up for the Wedding.com service, if you desire to receive marketing materials and information, if you submit a Service Request, and/or if you create a Vendor Profile to offer services through Wedding.com. Personally identifiable information that we may collect in such instances may include your full name, password, email address, street address, telephone number, photographs you upload, and other information that you decide to provide us with, or that you decide to include in your public profile.
Company Information. If you create a Vendor Profile, you have the opportunity to provide additional information ("Company Information") such as your company name, address, phone number, website and a description of your company and the services you provide. You may also upload a profile picture and photo gallery of your previous work. We may supplement or modify the Company Information to conform to our editorial policies or to add information from your website, materials that you supply to us, or publicly available sources. When you respond to a Consumer's Service Request, your Company Information and Profile is displayed to the Consumer making such a Service Request. Providing additional information beyond what is required at registration is entirely optional, but may enable you market your services more effectively and potentially win more jobs at Wedding.com. If you contact us by email through Wedding.com, we may keep a record of your contact information and correspondence, and use such information to respond to your inquiry.

Circumstance under which we may share your personal information:
To Provide Information to Service Providers. We may share your personal information with Service Providers registered with Wedding.com that perform certain services on behalf of Consumers. Sharing this information with Service Providers allows you to be accurately matched with Service Providers that are available and able to fulfill your needs. The information we share is generally the information requested during registration, including the Bride's and Groom's first names, phone number, the type of services needed, when and where the service should be performed, a description of the service needed, and the couple's profile picture.
To Provide Information to Consumers. If you are a registered Service Provider, we may share your company information with Consumers requesting services through Wedding.com. Sharing this information with Consumers helps them to assess Service Provider quality and choose to connect with the Service Provider. The information we share is the information provided in your Vendor Profile and any information sent in a message to the Consumer.
To Provide Information to Partner Companies. We may enter into agreements with one or more partner companies pursuant to which we provide a partner company with a URL and a user registration page co-branded with, or private labeled by, the partner company, and the partner company distributes and promotes the URL to its customers. A partner company may want to access personally identifiable information that we collect from its customers. As a result, if you register on our Website through a partner company, or if you are directed to or access our Website or Website features (such as but not limited to an embedded widget) through a partner company, we may provide your personally identifiable information to the partner company. Because we do not control the privacy practices of our partner company, you should read and understand its privacy policies.

We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to us, including, without limitation, hosting and maintenance, customer relationship, database storage and management, direct marketing campaigns and User credit card information storage. We will share your personally identifiable information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these functions and provide such services, and only pursuant to binding contractual obligations requiring such third parties to maintain the privacy and security of your data.
To Comply with Laws and Law Enforcement. Wedding.com may provide information to regulatory authorities and law enforcement officials in accordance with applicable law or when we otherwise believe in good faith that the law requires it. There may be instances when we may access or disclose your information in order to protect or defend the legal rights or property Wedding.com
