You must produce your own listing content. You must avoid “borrowing” text or images (including photos) from other listings, a manufacturer’s web site, product catalogs, or other sources without specific permission from the owner. Images and text found on the Internet do not necessarily mean that they are not protected by copyright laws. Copyright laws apply to the Internet, and manufacturers or other copyright owners and they may object to the use of text or images that they own or have created. Your posting should have its own descriptive text, and your own photos.

Do not post content that infringes the rights of third parties. This includes, but is not limited to, content that infringes on intellectual property rights such as copyright and trademark (e.g., offering counterfeit items for sale). Weddingbee reserve the right to remove content where we have grounds for suspecting the violation of these terms, our policies or of any party’s rights.

SPAM

Weddingbee encourages sellers to post listings on the Classified as long as they are not duplicates or other forms of spam, or otherwise inconsistent with these Guidelines and Weddingbee’s Terms of Use or Privacy Policy.
