These General Terms and Conditions of Use ("General Terms") explain how the legal contract between you and David's Bridal is made and sets out the terms of that contract.
1. Agreement to Terms
Unless we agree otherwise in writing, your contract with us always includes the General Terms. To the extent any area within the Service contains specific terms and conditions concerning its use ("Specific Terms"), your contract with David's Bridal will also include those Specific Terms. To the extent there is a direct conflict between the General Terms and the Specific Terms, the Specific Terms shall prevail. Together, the General Terms and Specific Terms, if any (collectively, the "Terms"), form the legal and binding contract between you and David's Bridal. Because the Terms are a legally binding contract, you should carefully read them before accessing or using the Service.
You may not use the Service if you do not accept the Terms. By clicking to accept or agree to the Terms or by using the Service, you agree to comply with the Terms and all applicable laws and regulations in connection with your use of the Service and your purchases on the Service.

3. Modification of Terms
David's Bridal shall have right at any time and without prior notice, at its sole discretion, to revise these Terms or to impose new terms and conditions with respect to access to or use of the Service. Such revisions and additions shall be effective immediately upon notice thereof, which may be given by any means, including, but not limited to, posting the revised or additional terms and conditions at www.davidsbridal.com or providing notice through the Service. You should check this Web page periodically for any modification to these Terms. By using the Service after we post changes to these Terms, you agree to accept those changes, whether or not you actually reviewed them.

David's Bridal may disable your ability to access your account or may terminate your right to access or use the Service or any portion thereof, without notice, at any time, and for any reason, including reasons such as conduct that we, in our sole discretion, believe is in violation of any applicable law or is harmful to the interests of another user, David's Bridal or its suppliers, vendors, and content providers (collectively, "Providers").
