The service fee is a percentage applied to the total value of the reservation to cover the payment processing costs, provide timely service to users and maintain the site active and functional. The cost of the online booking service is entirely charged to the Newlyweds. Should the Cowedder user, further to the booking confirmation and payment of the Gift, renounce the participation in the wedding, the following conditions apply: If the cancellation is made up to 30 days before the date of the wedding, the Cowedder is entitled a refund of the full amount paid, net of the expenses related to the transfers of money and a cancellation penalty amounting to 5% of the Gift, to cover the processing and booking costs. If the cancellation is made between 30 and 10 days before the wedding date, the Cowedder is entitled a refund amounting to 40% of the Gift, net of expenses related to the money transfer operations, to cover the processing and booking costs. If the cancellation is made within 10 days before the wedding or in the case where the Cowedder should not take part in the wedding, the Cowedder has no right to any refund. In the latter case, the bride and groom are entitled to 80% of the Gift, net of expenses of the money transfer operations, such as reimbursement of organization expenses already incurred. Coweddy returns the Cowedder the full amount already paid in case the event is cancelled. The bride and groom have 48 hours to confirm or reject the Cowedders request of participation. In the event of inaction on the part of the newlyweds, beyond 48 hours the reservation will be cancelled. In turn, the Cowedder has 48 hours to pay the prescribed amount (unless extended at the discretion of Coweddy staff). If either party is unable to meet its commitments with this Agreement because of circumstances beyond one's control or in any case not attributable to one of the parts, such as but not limited to, lightning, flooding, extreme weather phenomena, fires, explosions, wars, civil unrest, strikes (even not in association with its employees) or acts of local or central government or other competent authorities or events that go beyond the control of its suppliers, this Party shall not be liable for non-performance to the other Party.

Once the event is concluded, Coweddy will pay the bride and groom the agreed amount, retaining the sales percentage of the online booking service. Coweddy will pay the newlyweds the agreed sum through the "Paypal" bank transfer payment system according to the bank details provided by the bride and groom during the registration, no later than a maximum of 5 working days from the conclusion of the event, except in case the wedding hasn't in any way respected the description provided on the site and when this causes grave complaints from Cowedders.
