Our policy on copyright infringement
Bride2Bride.com respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects its users to do the same.
Bride2Bride.com seeks to abide by all applicable laws of the UK, USA, Canada, including all copyright laws. Bride2Bride.com aims to provide both a platform for a user to list their wedding dress for sale and upload photographs of the dress as part of their listing, whilst also balancing this with the rights of owners of intellectual property, such as wedding dress designers’ photographs and images of their dresses and designs.
Use of photographs in a listing
As a user of the Bride2Bride.com platform you must not upload copyright material, including photographs, to your listing without the prior written approval from the intellectual property owner; this is clearly described in the Terms and Conditions of the use of our website.

As we describe in our Terms and Conditions, Bride2Bride.com will, at its sole discretion, remove alleged infringing material from our platform. In addition, Bride2Bride.com may also, in its sole discretion, terminate the account or access of users who repeatedly infringe or are repeatedly charged with infringing the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of others.
