A guest is a person/entity using SR to provide/contribute a gift to a host by way of a cash deposit to a listed registry. A user of SR includes both account holders (hosts) and non-account holders (guests) visiting the site. A user webpage includes all the materials on the webpage and their content, including their registry. A wedding, and the term getting married, refers to any wedding, nuptial event, civil union, or domestic partnership agreement. The terms Bride and Groom do not denote a particular sex.
ii.User's Obligations: Any materials and their content posted by guests or hosts on an account holder’s individual SR webpage, including, but not limited to photos, words, and information, must be posted by a user and cannot be: (i) illegal; (ii) advertising, viruses, or spam; (iii) violate any intellectual property rights of any person/entity/law/statute; (iv) defamatory, hostile, harmful, or offensive; (iv) disclose confidential information owned by someone other than themselves. When users post/submit information to SR, they do so at their own risk and grant SR the right to publish this information on SR’s website. Any information regarding the wedding event is to be accurate and truthful at all times and if this information changes in any way, the Host must change the information on their own SR webpage within 48 hours. If account holders’ personal information changes, they are responsible for contacting SR directly in a timely manner.
iii. Cancellation of Event: Should the wedding/union be cancelled, the host must promptly close the wedding registry and withdraw any money held in and credited to the host’s account at the time with respect to the registry. The Host is solely responsible for any claims of donors, contributors, or other users with regards to distribution or refunds (if necessary) of money in a timely manner.
iv. Accounts: Users must notify SR of any perceived errors, inconsistencies, or discrepancies in account statements or contribution deposit receipts. An account is defined as “inactive” if there are no monetary transactions for a consecutive period of 2 years. If an “inactive” account contains money, SR will use all of its endeavours to attempt to contact the account’s owners. If SR is unable to locate or contact the owners, then the money shall be treated as unclaimed property and shall be handed over to the applicable revenue authority and subject to any Unclaimed Property Statutes. Under most Unclaimed Property Laws, money unclaimed after 3 years shall be handed over to the appropriate department of revenue. SR levies a 50% holding fee on all funds held for over 2 years and 95% holding fee on funds held for over 2.5 years.
vi. Fees: Any fees charged by SR are displayed under “FAQ/Help” section. Each user must agree to pay these fees as displayed on the relevant screen of the website prior to use of SR. In the event of an inactive account, SR will notify the users of any fees levied by SR. SR is not liable for variation in transaction fees, currency conversions, or exchange rates. There are two types of fees, for contributions and for withdrawals.
SR reserves the right to change these Terms. These Terms apply to any person/user of Starlightregistry.com/Starlightregistry.co.uk. If you do not agree to these Terms then you are not permitted to use SR Website.

Terms and Conditions of Starlight Registry Partnership Program
i. Definitions: A host is a person/entity using StarlighRegistry.com/Starlightregistry.co.uk (hereafter called SR) to create a registry and use other benefits of the site. A guest is a person/entity using SR to provide/contribute a gift to a host by way of a cash deposit to a listed registry. A partner is an individual or company who enters into the Starlight Registry Referral Program (SRRP). Partners entering into SRPP only receive monetary benefits if they successfully refer Hosts to SR. Partners gain no monetary benefit from referring guests. A successful referral is a referral where a host registers with SR and uses the services of SR. A partner is an individual who has signed up for the SRRP.
ii. Relationship: Partners who successfully refer a host receive a percentage of the total money made by Starlight Registry from that host's account. This percentage varies from 15% to 30% of Starlight Registry's profit from a host's wedding. Precise percentage breakdown can be found by contacting starlight registry directly. Only if a partner agrees to these percentage breakdowns should they enter into the referral program. Partners only get the credit of a referral if hosts enter the partner's referral code upon signing up for the service, regardless of whether the partner referred the host. Payment to partners will be sent within two weeks of hosts withdrawing all of their funds. The percentage of total funds partners receive can vary without giving prior notice to partners. SR reserves the right to discontinue a damaging, disrespectful, or harmful relationship with a partner at any time without prior notice.
iii. Cancellation of Event: If a wedding/union is cancelled, partners do not receive any monetary compensation for their referral because Hosts become solely responsible to deal with the claims of any donors, contributors, or other users with regards to distribution or refunds (if necessary) of money.
SR reserves the right to change these Terms. These Terms bind any partner entering into the Starlightregistry.com/Starlightregistry.co.uk referral program. If you do not agree to being legally bound by these Terms then you are not permitted to enter into our referral program.
