If any provision of these Terms of Use is deemed invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms of Use, which shall remain in full force and effect.

No waiver of any term of these Terms of Use shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Wedding Pool’ failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

If you continue to use the Services after we change the Terms of Use, you accept all changes.
