Praulia is a matching service for the wedding and event industry. Praulia is not a wedding product or service provider, wedding vendor or agent representative. Customers include brides, grooms, their family members and their guests and others who may sign up and pay for Praulia’s Services. Praulia functions solely as a neutral venue attempting to match Customers with vendors based on style, budget and event date. We are not involved in or a party to the actual transaction between our Customers and vendors. As a result, we make no guarantees and assume no liability for, the quality, accuracy, safety or legality of the transactions that take place between our Customers and the vendors whose information we provide to our Customers. We are not responsible for the actions or inactions of our Customers or the vendors whose information we provide to our Customers.
Customers: Customers acknowledge that Praulia does not provide any of the products or services offered by vendors. We do not endorse any vendors nor guarantee the quality of their goods or services. Any transaction you enter into with a vendor is strictly between you and the vendor and Praulia is not a party to that transaction. Any dispute you have with a vendor is between you and the vendor and we will not be a party to that dispute, except regarding your use of the Site.
Vendors: We reserve the right to refuse the application of a vendor without notice and at our sole discretion. We also reserve the right to remove a vendor from our directory without notice and at our sole discretion. Vendors that sign up for Praulia are not guaranteed business leads. There are currently no fees to be a vendor with Praulia.
If a vendor expresses to Praulia that it is interested in performing services for the wedding or other event of a Praulia customer, we may provide the vendor’s name, contact information and other relevant details to our Customer.
Customers will pay to Praulia fees in connection with the subscription plan (“Subscription Plan”) selected by the customer for the use of Praulia’s Services (“Subscription Fees”). Pricing options can be found on the Pricing page of the Site. Unless otherwise negotiated between you and Praulia in an addendum to this agreement, all Subscription Fees are due at the beginning of each subscription term as specified in the Subscription Plan and Praulia will charge the method of payment you provide via the Site in the amount of the Subscription Fees in connection with the Subscription Plan that you select. Subscription Fees are exclusive of taxes, duties, levies, tariffs and other governmental charges (including, without limitation, VAT) (collectively, “Taxes”). Customer shall be responsible for payment of all Taxes and any related interest and/or penalties resulting from any payments made hereunder, other than any taxes based on Praulia’s net income.
Praulia may change the prices of the Subscription Fees from time to time and will communicate any price changes to you in advance and, if applicable, how to accept those changes. As permitted by local law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the Services after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with the price changes, you have the right to reject the change by unsubscribing from the Services prior to the price change going into effect.

In no event shall we be responsible for providing the goods and/or services indicated in a Coupon. We shall have no liability for the goods and/or services provided under a Coupon. You agree to look solely to the Coupon Vendor for the goods and/or services to be provided; therefore, the Coupon Vendors are responsible for any damages, claims or liabilities, including, but not limited to, injuries and property damages. You hereby waive and release Praulia and our affiliates, officers, directors, employees, shareholders and agents from any and all claims, causes of action, damages, liabilities, costs and attorneys’ fees and expenses whatsoever, known or unknown, arising out of the goods and/or services provided in connection with the Coupons. Additional terms and conditions may be contained on each Coupon. Any violation of the Coupon terms and conditions will make the Coupon void. We are not responsible for lost or stolen Coupons.

Our Service may contain links to third-party websites or services that are not owned or controlled by Praulia. Praulia has no control over and assumes no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third-party websites or services. You further acknowledge and agree that Praulia shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such websites or services. We strongly advise you to read the terms and conditions and privacy policies of any third-party websites or services that you visit.
These Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, United States of America, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding our Service and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have between regarding the Service.
The Services and all information, documents and other materials, provided on the Site are provided “as is.” Specifically, but without limitation, Praulia does not warrant that: (i) the information or the Services rendered are correct, accurate, reliable or complete; (ii) the functions of the Services will be uninterrupted or error-free; (iii) defects will be corrected or (iv) the Services or the servers that make them available are free of viruses or other harmful components. Praulia does not make and specifically disclaims, any and all warranties, including but not limited to implied warranties of merchantability, noninfringement and fitness for a particular purpose. Praulia does not guarantee the availability of the Services and does not guarantee that the Services will meet the user’s needs.
All information, documents and material provided on this Site are subject to change. Praulia periodically adds, updates or changes the information and documents on this Site without notice.
It is the user’s responsibility to ascertain whether any information downloaded from this Site is free of viruses, worms, trojan horses or other potentially harmful items.
Limitation of Liability
Under no circumstances shall Praulia be liable for any incidental, special, consequential, exemplary, multiple or other indirect damages that result from the use of or the inability to use, the Services or the information and materials contained on the Site, even if Praulia has been advised of the possibility of such damages. In no event shall Praulia’s total liability to the user for all damages, losses and causes of action resulting from use of the Services, whether in contract, tort (including, but not limited to, negligence) or otherwise, exceed the amounts paid to Praulia during the most recent twelve (12) month period in connection with use of the Services.
Disputes between you and Praulia regarding the Site and our Services should be reported to info AT praulia DOT com. We will attempt to resolve any disputes you have with us. Because we are a neutral venue, we are not responsible for resolving any disputes between you and other visitors, vendors or Customers regarding services or transactions. Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to your use of this Site, to the goods or Services provided through Praulia, these Terms or to any acts or omissions for which you may contend Praulia is liable, including but not limited to any claim or controversy as to arbitrability (“Dispute”), shall be finally and exclusively, settled by arbitration. The arbitration shall be held before one arbitrator under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in force at that time. The arbitration shall be conducted in Dallas County, Texas. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the AAA rules. Should no AAA rule regarding Texas selection of an arbitrator be in effect, the party or parties to the dispute shall select an arbitrator from a panel of arbitrators acceptable to Praulia. In any arbitration, the parties will split the cost of the filing fee, plus the costs associated with the first day of arbitration, with the remaining costs of arbitration paid by the non-prevailing party. To begin the arbitration process, a party must make a written demand therefore.
Any judgment upon an award rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction in Dallas County, Texas. The arbitrators shall not have the power to award damages in connection with any Dispute in excess of actual compensatory damages and shall not multiply actual damages or award consequential, punitive or exemplary damages and each party irrevocably waives any claim thereto. The agreement to arbitrate shall not be construed as an agreement to the joinder or consolidation of an arbitration under this Agreement with an arbitration of disputes or claims of any non-party, regardless of the nature of the issues or disputes involved.
This agreement provides that all disputes between you and Praulia will be resolved by binding arbitration. You thus give up your right to go to court to assert or defend your rights. You also give up your right to participate in or bring class action lawsuits. Your rights will be determined by neutral arbitrators and not a judge or jury. You are entitled to a fair hearing, but the arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than rules applicable in court. Arbitrator decisions are enforceable as any court order and are subject to very limited review by a court. By using Praulia’s goods and services or the Site, you consent to these restrictions.
Should a Dispute arise and should the arbitration provisions herein become inapplicable or unenforceable or in any instance of any lawsuit between you and Praulia, the parties agree that jurisdiction over and venue of any suit shall be exclusively in the state courts sitting in Dallas County, Texas and federal courts sitting in Dallas County, Texas. If either party employs attorneys to enforce any right in connection with any Dispute or lawsuit, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys’ fees.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material we will attempt to provide at least 30 days notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion. By continuing to access or use our Service after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Service.
