The materials displayed, performed, or available on or through the Website (including, without limitation, text, fonts, design, graphics, logos, icons, images, audio clips, videos, User Submissions, downloads, interfaces, code and software, as well as the selection and arrangement thereof) (“Content”) is the exclusive property of its owner (Zola and/or its licensors, partners and/or other content providers, as applicable, “Content Owner”) and is protected by copyright and trademark law, as well as other applicable Regulations. Without Content Owner's prior written consent, you may not sell, reproduce, distribute, download, modify, display, publicly perform, create derivative works based on, repost or otherwise use any Content in any way for any purpose, including using Content on any other website. However, you may print pages from the Website for personal, non-commercial use, provided that you include a copyright notice on each page.
You are responsible for obtaining access to the Website, and that access may involve third-party fees (such as Internet service provider or airtime charges). In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Website. You may not bypass any measures that have been implemented to prevent, restrict or secure access to the Website. Any unauthorized access to the Website by you (including any such access or use that involves in any way an account you may establish on the Website or any device you may use to access the Website) shall terminate the permission or license granted to you by Zola. Zola neither warrants nor represents that your use of the Content available on the Website will not infringe, misappropriate or otherwise violate the rights of third parties. Termination of your access or use will not waive or affect any other right or relief to which Zola may be entitled, at law or in equity.
If you purchase a gift on the Website, including for a registered Zola couple, you are purchasing “Zola Stored Value” in the amount of the purchase price of the item selected plus any applicable taxes and charges (including, without limitation, shipping and handling charges). The registered Zola couple recipient uses that Zola Stored Value to purchase the item you selected from Zola at the date the recipient designates for shipment of the item. Zola will honor the Zola Stored Value for the item you have selected as payment in full no matter the price of the item at the time of shipping. For example, if you select a set of dishes costing $69.95 including all taxes and charges, when the registered Zola couple recipient selects a shipping date, the set of dishes is then purchased for $69.95 and shipped no matter what the cost of the item is at that time. The registered Zola couple will not be charged more for that item if the price has increased. The registered Zola couple may elect to retain your gift as Zola Stored Value in the amount you paid. They may use that Zola Stored Value to purchase other items on Zola. Unredeemed Zola Stored Value may be escheated in accordance with applicable state law.
Zola Stored Value never expires and can be used for any physical product, third-party gift card or experience that Zola sells. Zola Stored Value cannot be redeemed or used for cash, digital Zola gift cards, Vendor Credits, or other cash gifts or be applied towards items purchased from another website. In addition, Zola Stored Value cannot be retroactively applied to past orders. From time to time, Zola may make available promotional codes or coupons for marketing, goodwill, referrals or other promotional purposes. These codes or coupons expire on the date disclosed at the time the code or coupon is issued.
“Vendor Credits” that are purchased on the Website, as available, may be applied towards the purchase of certain goods and services we provide to Vendors. Vendor Credits cannot be applied or otherwise used for cash, Zola Stored Value, physical products, third-party gift cards or experiences Zola sells, digital Zola gift cards, or other cash gifts, nor can they be applied towards items purchased from another website. Our Vendor Credits Terms and Conditions govern your receipt, purchase and use of Vendor Credits. By purchasing, receiving or using Vendor Credits, you agree to be bound by the Vendor Credit Terms and Conditions, without modification, and you represent that you have read and understood them all.
Zola may, in its sole discretion, choose to not process or to cancel your order in certain circumstances. This may occur, for example, when the product or service you wish to purchase is out of stock or has been mispriced, we suspect the request is fraudulent, or in other circumstances as Zola deems appropriate, in each case in its sole discretion. Zola also reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to take steps to verify your identity to process your order. Zola either will not charge you or will refund the charges for orders that we do not process or cancel.
Zola strives to provide accurate pricing information regarding the products and services available on the Website. We cannot, however, insure against pricing errors. Zola reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to not process or to cancel any orders placed for a product or service whose price was incorrectly posted on the Website as a result of an error. If this occurs, Zola will notify you by email. In addition, Zola reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to correct any error in the stated retail price of a product or service.
Zola offers free ground shipping on most orders. Free shipping is not available on some items, such as furniture, that have a delivery surcharge due to the size, weight or special handling necessary to make sure your order arrives safely. Handling or other additional charges may be applied to your order, and such charges will be disclosed to you at the time of checkout. For Zola's Shipping Policies, which may change from time to time, please see https://www.zola.com/shipping.
Zola does not sell, offer to sell or solicit sales of alcohol. The Website may enable you to search for and purchase third-party gift cards, credits or subscriptions that may be redeemed towards the purchase of alcohol or other products available for sale by licensed alcohol retailers or other marketplaces via the Website. You must be at least 21 years of age to make any such purchases through the Website. Please refer to the applicable sale page or product detail page on the Website for more information on applicable terms and conditions related to the purchase of such third-party gift cards, credits or subscriptions, including any state restrictions on purchase or shipping. Taxes collected are collected on behalf of the seller of record.
For Wedding Vendors & Creative Professionals:
Submitting and/or posting User Submissions to the Website does not alter the ownership of the User Submissions. User Submissions you own continue to belong to you. By submitting and/or posting User Submissions to the Website, you automatically grant Zola a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, irrevocable and fully assignable, transferable and sublicensable right and license to use, reproduce, publish, distribute, modify, adapt, edit, translate, distribute, perform, link to, create derivative works of and display such User Submissions alone, or as a part of other works, in any form, media, or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed, for the purposes described in the following paragraph.
This license grants Zola the ability to use your User Submissions to create and promote/advertise Zola's Vendor Marketplace (including your Vendor listing), Zola's inspirational content platforms (including but not limited to its real weddings and expert advice platforms) and other related Services. For the same purposes, Zola may reproduce, disclose, transmit, broadcast, post, modify, adapt, publish, edit, translate, distribute, perform, link to, create derivative works of and publicly display such User Submissions alone, or as a part of other works, in any form, media, or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed. This license does not grant Zola the ability to use your User Submissions to promote Zola Services other than Zola's Vendor Marketplace, Zola's inspirational content platforms and other related Services. Should Zola seek to use your User Submissions in ways that exceed this license, Zola must ask for and receive your written permission to do so.
For All Other Users, Including But Not Limited to Couples:
By submitting and/or posting User Submissions to the Website, you automatically grant to Zola a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive and fully assignable, transferable and sublicensable right and license to use, reproduce, disclose, transmit, broadcast, post, modify, adapt, publish, link to, edit, translate, distribute, perform, create derivative works of and display such User Submissions alone, or as a part of other works, in any form, media, or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed. Any Content you transmit or post may be used by Zola or licensed to others by Zola for any purpose whatsoever.
If you share a User Submission solely in a manner that we have communicated will or is otherwise designed to only be viewed by Zola and certain specified users (for example, a private message that you send through the Website to a Vendor to whom you want to send an inquiry or to whom you have been connected through Zola's platform) (a “Limited Audience User Submission”), then you hereby grant Zola the licenses above, subject to the limitation as communicated. Also, you grant Zola and such other specified users a license to access that Limited Audience User Submission, and to use and exercise all rights therein, as permitted by the functionality of the Website. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, no such limitation shall restrict Zola with respect to non-personally identifiable information within User Submissions.
In addition to Zola's registry services, if you have registered an account on the Website, you may have access to Zola's wedding planning tools for your personal, non-commercial use. You may register for an account to access Zola's wedding planning tools separately without including a Zola registry. Use of Zola's wedding planning tools for commercial purposes is strictly prohibited. This free service allows you to create and manage your guest list, create a personalized website on Zola.com, create and manage a checklist of things to do, connect with and make inquiries of Vendors, and take advantage of certain other features and functions as may be made available from time to time. Information you upload to any Zola wedding planning tool is not encrypted or otherwise secured.
Using the guest list feature, you can upload contact information for your wedding guests, including a name, address, email and telephone number for each guest. You can request that Zola send guests that you select a pre-written email or text message requesting that the guest send you his/her/their contact information or reminding the guest of your upcoming nuptials. Zola will be the sender of the email or text message which will identify you as requesting the contact information. You select the recipients and determine when to send the email or text message, but you may not be able to edit the pre-written email or text message text. You can also request that Zola send guests that you select an email with a short message that you compose. The email will identify that it is coming from you, but Zola will be the sender of the email. The guest list feature also allows you to track the RSVPs from each guest. By using this feature and uploading guest information you represent and warrant that you have the permission and consent of that individual to provide the information to Zola and that Zola has permission to send emails and/or text messages to the individual on your behalf at your request. Guests no longer wishing to receive such messages can opt out of receiving further messages from Zola at any time by following the instructions provided. If you do not have permission to send messages to a guest or if you have reason to believe that a guest no longer wishes to receive such messages, you agree not to send such messages to them through Zola's Services. You also represent and warrant to Zola that you and each person you have instructed us to message understands that each recipient is responsible for the costs of any message charges assessed by his/her/their mobile carrier.
Zola's Vendor Marketplace allows registered Zola couples to connect with certain Vendors or otherwise facilitate communications between you and such Vendors based on your User Submissions. You may direct Limited Audience User Submissions to Vendors with whom you have connected or to other Vendors on the Website to inquire as to such Vendors' availability, pricing, and other details of such products or services that Vendors may offer.
Vendors may identify other vendors (whether Vendors with Vendor Profiles or vendors without Zola accounts) as preferred (“Preferred Vendor”) or required (“Required Vendor”) as part of their User Submissions, including on their Vendor Profiles. By linking to and publicly displaying a Preferred Vendor's or a Required Vendor's Vendor Profile, Vendor represents that they have obtained such Preferred Vendor's or Required Vendor's consent to do so. Such Preferred and/or Required Vendors with respect to any given Vendor are referred to as a “Vendor Network.” Additionally, if a couple or other user indicates through the Website or User Submissions, including Limited Audience User Submissions, that it has selected a particular Vendor, then such Vendor's relationship with this couple may be made publicly available or available to others.
Vendors may use the on-platform messaging feature on Zola's Vendor Marketplace (“VM Messaging”) to send and receive messages, attachments, Vendor Documents and other materials (collectively, “Message Materials”) that are relevant and proper to Vendor Marketplace. Vendors are responsible for all Message Materials they send and/or upload via VM Messaging, and for the consequences of sending and/or uploading such Message Materials, including the legality, reliability and appropriateness of such Message Materials. As used herein, “Vendor Documents” refers to the document(s) that a Vendor can upload to their dedicated Vendor storage area (“Vendor Library”).
As a Vendor, you agree not to share or request payment information (including credit or debit card information or account numbers) or other Personal Information via VM Messaging. You acknowledge and agree that Zola may set certain limits on the file or message size of any Vendor Documents and/or Message Materials and delete any Vendor Documents and/or message attachments uploaded or attached by such Vendor after a certain period of time, in each case, in Zola's sole discretion.
If you are a Vendor or if you interact with a Vendor, you acknowledge and agree that: (i) Zola does not and will not endorse any Vendor or any such Vendor's products or services (whether or not we connect or otherwise facilitate communications between such Vendor and other Zola users); (ii) Zola is not responsible for assisting Vendors and other Zola users in reaching an agreement (which includes agreements between Vendors); (iii) Zola is not responsible for assisting Vendors in providing products and services to other Zola users; (iv) while all Zola users are required to give us accurate information about themselves, Zola cannot and will not verify this information; (v) any transaction a Vendor enters into with another Zola user is strictly between such Vendor and the other Zola user, and Zola is not a party to such transaction (whether or not we connect or otherwise facilitate communications between such Vendor and such other Zola user, and whether or not we facilitate a Vendor's creation or management of their respective Vendor Network); (vi) Zola makes no guarantees or promises with respect to successful transactions between Vendors and other Zola users (including couples, guests, Vendors, and/or other users); and (vii) any dispute a Zola user may have with another Zola user (including a Zola user that is a Vendor) is between those Zola users, and we will not be a party to that dispute. Vendors are solely responsible for compliance with all applicable Regulations and taxes and payments which may be applicable to their respective products or services. If you are a Vendor, you agree that you are solely responsible for your products and services and agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Zola, its officers, subsidiaries, affiliates, successors, assigns, directors, officers, agents, service providers, suppliers and employees (the “Zola Parties”) from any and all claims, suits, losses, demands, damages, obligations, liabilities, costs, debt and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) (“Claims”) relating to or arising from your acts, omissions, products and services, including any violation of any Regulations, or other taxes and payments which may be applicable to your products and services.
Zola may also permit users to submit ratings and reviews of products they have purchased on our Website (“R&R User Submissions”) as part of the Customer Ratings and Reviews and/or Questions and Answers service offered by Zola (“Review Services”). Please review our Ratings & Reviews Terms and Conditions, which govern your use of, and conduct associated with, the Review Services. Our Ratings & Reviews Terms and Conditions will provide you with important information regarding the R&R User Submission process and guidelines. By submitting a R&R User Submission, you agree to be bound by the Ratings & Reviews Terms and Conditions, without modification, and you represent that you have read and understood them all.
Zola prohibits discrimination by Vendors, Content Owners or other licensors against couples, guests, visitors, users, or any other party (“Protected Class”) on the basis of race, ethnicity, color, religion, sex, national origin, ancestry, physical characteristic, disability, marital status, family status or composition, pregnancy status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, political affiliation, veteran or citizenship status, age, or any other characteristic protected under applicable federal, regional, state, or local law (“Protected Characteristic”). Such discrimination includes, but is not limited to, doing any of the following: (i) refusing to provide goods or services to, or accept goods or services from, a member of any Protected Class on the basis of a Protected Characteristic; (ii) submitting discriminatory content on the Website; (iii) imposing any different terms or conditions upon a member of any Protected Class on the basis of a Protected Characteristic; or (iv) any other conduct that improperly takes into account any Protected Characteristic. Zola will take steps, in its sole discretion, to enforce this policy, up to and including the suspension or removal from the Website and deactivation of the account of anyone who violates this policy. In addition, Vendors should make every effort to be welcoming to couples of all backgrounds and shall comply with the Zola Vendor Pledge. Vendors who, in Zola's sole discretion, demonstrate a pattern of refusing to provide goods or services members of a Protected Class undermine the strength of our community and may be suspended or removed from the Website and/or have their account deactivated, in each case, in Zola's sole discretion. If you experience discrimination from any couple, guest, Vendor, Zola employee, licensor, visitor, or user of the Website, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject “Non-Discrimination Policy”, so we can investigate and take appropriate measures.

Zola respects the intellectual property rights of others. Accordingly, if you are a copyright owner or an Authorized Agent thereof and believe that any user Content or other content infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) by providing our Copyright Agent with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C 512(c)(3) for further detail): (i) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (ii) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site; (iii) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled and information reasonably sufficient to permit Zola to locate the material; (iv) information reasonably sufficient to permit Zola to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address; (v) a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
If a user believes the applicable material was removed as a result of a mistake or misidentification (including because they do in fact have the proper authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent or pursuant to the law to upload and use such material in their Content), such user may send a written counter-notice containing the following information to Zola's Copyright Agent: (a) physical or electronic signature of the user; (b) identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled; (c) a statement under penalty of perjury that the user has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; (d) the user's name, address, telephone number, and email address and (e) a statement that such user consents to the jurisdiction of the federal court located within New York, New York and a statement that such user will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement. If a valid counter-notice is received by our Copyright Agent, we may restore access to the material after no less than ten (10) and no more than fourteen (14) business days. We will not restore access to the material if the original notice sender informs us that it has filed a court action against the user.
In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable Regulations, we have adopted a policy of deactivating, in appropriate circumstances and at our sole discretion, the accounts of users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. We may also, in our sole discretion, limit access to the Website and/or deactivate the accounts of any users who infringe, misappropriate or otherwise violate any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
Zola's designated Copyright Agent to receive notifications of claimed infringement is: email@example.com or Zola, Inc., 7WTC, 250 Greenwich St., 39th Floor, New York, NY 10007, Attention: DMCA Complaint. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this Section, your DMCA notice may not be processed. Please provide Zola with a separate notice each time you wish to report alleged acts of infringement.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH ZOLA AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM US.
Certain portions of this Section are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and Zola agree that Zola intends that this Section satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act.
You and Zola further agree to the following with respect to the arbitration of any Dispute hereunder: (a) any claim must be brought in your individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding; (b) the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding and may not award class-wide relief; (c) the arbitration will be held at a location in your hometown area unless you and we both agree to another location or telephonic arbitration; (d) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, we will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive as compared to the cost of litigation; (e) each party will pay the administrative and arbitrator's fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules, but we reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to assume responsibility for any or all of the fees and costs of the arbitration; (f) the arbitrator will honor claims of privilege and privacy recognized at law; (g) the arbitration will be confidential, and neither you nor we may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by applicable Regulations or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award; (h) the arbitrator may award any individual relief or individual remedies that are expressly permitted by applicable Regulations; and (i) each party will pay its own attorneys' fees and expenses, unless there is a statutory provision that requires the prevailing party to be paid its fees and litigation expenses and the arbitrator awards such attorneys' fees and expenses to the prevailing party, and, in such instance, the fees and costs awarded will be determined by the applicable Regulations.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE REGULATIONS, YOU AGREE THAT (I) NO ARBITRATION SHALL BE JOINED WITH ANY OTHER; (II) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS-ACTION BASIS OR TO UTILIZE CLASS ACTION PROCEDURES; AND (III) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC OR ANY OTHER PERSONS.
