5. Review Guidelines
In addition to the guidelines with respect to Content as described in section 4 of the Terms above, you represent that you have read and understood the following review guidelines (collectively, the "Review Guidelines") and agree to abide by same:
Reviews must be based on a business transaction or a proposed business transaction. If you have conducted business with a Vendor, or you have otherwise communicated with such Vendor regarding a proposed business transaction, and are able to provide proof of such business transaction(s) or proposed business transaction(s), then you are permitted to post a review for each unique transaction you conducted with such Vendor.
The content of a review must be family-friendly. The Company will not post – or once posted, will remove – any reviews that contain insulting language, profanity, threats, prejudiced comments, hate speech, personal attacks, or other content considered objectionable.
Reviews should be unique, independent, and accurate. Your review should focus solely on your experience with the Vendor and the goods and/or services provided by such Vendor. As others may rely on your reviews, we urge you to make your comments helpful, reasonable, and above all, truthful to your experience. Ensure your content is as factually accurate as possible according to your knowledge and experience.
Reviews must exclude any personal and/or identifiable information. As a general rule, information about an individual in a business, professional or official capacity is not considered to be personal information. The content may qualify as personal information if it reveals something of a personal nature about the individual (e.g. medical history, information about family members, etc.).
Ensure your review is legal, non-infringing and not defamatory. The Company will not post, and once posted, will remove from the Site, any review that is, or becomes, illegal, infringing, defamatory. Reviews may be removed if (i) you request your review to be removed; (ii) your review has been disputed and is currently being investigated; once the investigation is completed, your review will either be posted on the Site or rejected if the Company has determined that your review does not comply with these Review Guidelines; or (iii) your review does not comply with these Review Guidelines.
Vendors and representatives of Vendors, including individuals, business owners, managers, or employees (past or current) may not pose as consumers and post reviews about their own company. This is considered to be fraudulent activity, and will be treated accordingly.
Reviews must be non-commercial. The Company will not post any web addresses, e-mail addresses, HTML code, or promotional materials of any kind.
Reviews must be written in English.
We allow Vendors and representatives of Vendors that were reviewed to respond to posted reviews by logging into their Vendor dashboard and replying directly to such reviews. The Company will apply the same Review Guidelines to such responses. Please note that the identity of a representative that files a response to a review will be made known on the Site.
In order to use the Site, you agree that you shall not:
impersonate any person or entity, including without limitation, a Company representative, write fake or defamatory Content or trade reviews with other businesses;
violate any third party's rights, including any breach of confidentiality, copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, moral right, privacy right, right of publicity, or any other intellectual property or proprietary right;
publish or attempt to publish Content intended to threaten or harass others, or that contains any bigotry or discriminatory language;
use the Site to spam others by sending bulk emails, or any other mass messaging, both commercial or noncommercial;
engage in keyword spamming in reviews or profile text, or otherwise attempt to manipulate any Site's search results;
solicit personal information from any users of the Site, or submit or transmit pornography;
violate any applicable law;
modify, adapt, appropriate, reproduce, distribute, translate, create derivative works or adaptations of, publicly display, sell, trade, or in any way exploit the Content (other than Your Content), except as expressly authorized by the Company;

7. The Company is Not Party to any Transaction
The Site functions solely as a neutral venue and digital clearinghouse where users of the Site ("End Users") Vendors may connect for a particular type of good/product or service. The Company is not involved in or a party to the actual transaction between any End Users and any Vendors.
The Company conducts preliminary research to verify the identity of the Vendors on the Site; however, the Company cannot and will not guarantee each Vendor's identity; nor can the Company guarantee each Vendor's capabilities. The Site contains a review system to help End Users evaluate Vendors with whom they are considering transacting business. However, the Company cannot guarantee that information provided by or about Vendors on the Site is accurate. End Users should use the Site as a starting point for identifying Vendors who may be able to provide the products and services needed for their event but End Users should always conduct their own research to ensure that Vendors chosen are appropriate for their event.
If you are an End User, you acknowledge and agree that the Company does not provide any of the products or services advertised or offered by the Vendors on the Site and therefore cannot and does not guarantee the quality of the goods or services offered by any of the Vendors. Any and all communications, correspondence, verbal or written, or any warranties or representations, made with regard to goods, products and/or services offered by any Vendor through the Site are not provided by the Company and are specifically and solely between you and the Vendor. Any transaction you enter into with a Vendor is strictly between you and such Vendor, and the Company is not a party to that transaction. Any dispute you have with a Vendor is between you and such Vendor, and the Company will not be a party to that dispute. You hereby agree to release the Company, its officers, directors, agents, and employees from all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of any kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with any disputes between you and any Vendors.
If you are a Vendor (including those Vendors who have not activated their paid listing on the Site), you acknowledge and agree that the Company is in no way responsible for assisting you in reaching an agreement with any End Users, nor is the Company responsible for assisting you in providing goods and services to End Users. Further, you acknowledge and agree that the Company cannot and will not verify any information about any End Users and cannot and will not guarantee the ability of any End Users to complete payment for any of the goods, products or services you provide. Any transaction you enter into with an End User is strictly between you and such End User, and the Company is not a party to that transaction. Any dispute you have with an End User is between you and such End User and the Company will not be a party to that dispute. You agree to release the Company, its officers, directors, agents, and employees from all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of any kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with any disputes between you and any End Users.

The Company may suspend or terminate your use of the Site if the Company suspects that you have engaged in fraudulent activity in connection with the Site, as determined in the Company's sole discretion. Fraudulent acts include, but are not limited to, the manipulation of the Site’s review system by, for instance, attempting to restrict an End User's ability to post a review by contract or otherwise, or offering an End User cash or other form of monetary compensation in exchange for a more favorable review.
