Last Revised December 21, 2018
Welcome to www.myworldregistry.com! You are reading our My World Registry Terms of Service (“Terms”), an agreement between you and My World Registry (“My World Registry,” “we” or “us”) which governs your access to our platform and Platform which we offer via www.myworldregistry.com and our other affiliate websites (collectively, the “Platform”). To make these Terms easier to read, our online platform and service, and the Platform are collectively called the “Platform.” You must read the Terms carefully before you use the Platform. These Terms apply to all users of the Platform whether you are a Registered User (defined below) or just visiting. If you have any questions feel free to send us a note at email@example.com. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Changes to these Terms or the Platform
We can change these Terms at any time. If we do so, we’ll let you know either by posting the changed Terms on the Platform or through other communications. We’ll also update the “Last Updated Date” at the top of these Terms. It’s important that you review the changed Terms because if you continue to use the Platform after we’ve provided notice of the change, you’re telling us that you agree to be bound by the changed Terms. If you do not agree to be bound by the changed Terms then you’re not allowed to use the Platform anymore. We are always striving to make the Platform better and because they’re evolving over time we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Platform, at any time and without notice, at our discretion.
Agreement to our Terms
By accessing or using our Platform you agree to be bound by these Terms, whether or not you have registered with the Platform, you are a Gift Registry Creator, a Gift Registry Receiver, a Gift Registry Contributor, an Experience Buyer, an End User (defined below) or an Experience Provider (defined below). These Terms outline the conditions under which all Experiences are made available on the Platform. If you do not agree, then you are not permitted to use the Platform. If you are accessing and using the Platform on behalf of a company, organization or entity (such as your employer) or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to these Terms as the company’s agent. In that case, “you” and “your” will refer to that company, organization or other entity. Certain areas of the Platform or features of the Platform may have additional terms that incorporated herein by reference, and you should read those additional terms to ensure you agree to be bound thereby. For example, if you enter a sweepstakes, you will be bound to the terms specific to that sweepstakes. If there’s a conflict between these Terms and the additional terms, the additional terms will govern your use of Platform the subject matter therein.
We are a Platform Service Provider
Through the Platform, we offer an online community that allows individuals and entities (each an “End User”) to view, purchase, bid on, and/or participate in Experiences offered by Experience Providers, or to add your idea for a desired gift to our gift registry platform. This means that we act as an intermediary between the End User and the Experience Provider and our responsibilities under these Terms are limited to facilitating the availability of the Platform and collecting payments on behalf of the Experience Provider.
Capitalized words herein are called “Defined Terms.” We have included the defined terms to help make this Agreement easier to read and understand.
“End User” – the person who receives the experience, regardless of whether the person was also the buyer or not.
“Exclusive Experience” or “Exclusive Gift Experience” is an Experience that is not advertised or offered for sale anywhere else, online or print, other than on the Platform.
“Experiences” or “Gift Experiences” means the experiences, activities, products in digital form or interactions including in-person experiences, activities, or interactions and virtual experiences, activities, or interactions, offered by the Provider via the Platform.
“Experience Buyer” or “Buyer” – the person who purchases an experience via the My World Registry Platform either for themselves or for someone else.
“Experience Provider” or “Provider” means a person or entity that has accepted these My World Registry Terms and the My World Registry Experience Provider Agreement Addendum, and offers an Experience for sale via the Platform.
“Gift Experience Listing” means the description and details of the Experience including, but not limited to, the price of the Experience, uploaded media and links, and the date and time, as applicable.
“Gift/Experience Marketplace” or “My World Marketplace” or “Marketplace” – The section of the Website in which the Experience Listings are found and can be purchased.

“Gift Registry Receiver” – the person who is the recipient of all money gift contributions in their bank account.
“Non-Exclusive Experience” or “Non-Exclusive Gift Experience” is an Experience that is already published or offered for sale in online or print places other than the Platform.
“Platform” means www.myworldregistry.com and any of our other affiliate websites or digital and print media channels.
“Registered User” means a person that completes our Account Registration Process (defined below), including Buyers, End Users and Experience Providers.
“Service Fee” – the amount that My World Registry charges for each financial transaction that occurs through the Platform.
There are more terms defined under “Key Terms” in the section below regarding payment, and in specific sections of these Terms.
The Experience Provider, not My World Registry, is responsible for honoring the purchase of any Experience. As an End User, you may be required to sign and return a waiver and liability release before you participate in an Experience.
Using the Platform
You can only use the Platform if you are 18 years or older and are not barred from using the Platform under applicable law. Additionally, in order to offer or purchase some Experiences, you must be 21 years or older at the time you offer, or purchase, the Experience.
You are required to provide us with accurate and complete information and keep your Account information up to date. If you do not, we may suspend or terminate your Account, in My World Registry’s sole discretion. You agree not to share your Account login and password, and will let us know immediately upon discovering any unauthorized use of your Account. You’re responsible for all activities that occur under your Account
Registry Cancellations, Chargebacks, Disputes
If a registry will be cancelled, or changed, the registry creator must log into his or her Platform Account and edit the information pertaining to the registry as soon as reasonably possible. The End User who creates or posts a registry is responsible for any refunds required by the applicable My World Registry Terms. End Users who make monetary gifts to registries understand that these monetary gifts may not be refunded, and World Registry, LLC does not require that these transactions be refunded. Unless required to refund gifts by operation of state or federal law or other authority, End Users who post registries may not return funds through My World Registry or the Platform. It is the intent of My World Registry that monetary gifts towards fulfilling a registry progressively make the desired gift experience more possible. A recipient End User may then elect to use the money collected to purchase the experience, even if a stated monetary goal has not been reached. Even if an End User elects to or desires to return funds, the 3% Service Fee (above) is not refundable. By using the Platform, you are waiving your rights to chargebacks. You, the End User, are posting a gift registry. There should be no dispute about the validity of a charge for a cash gift registry you have posted. In the instance that the event or gift experience registry you have contributed towards or created has been, or is cancelled, it is the responsibility of the registry recipient or creator to return the money to the giver if the creating or receiving End User so elects; a situation such as this is not just cause for a chargeback. My World Registry does not provide a mechanism for returning gift-payments, the End User who wishes to return payments must do so on his or her own independently from the Platform. Notwithstanding this waiver, you further agree to indemnify and hold My World Registry harmless in the event of a dispute regarding or involving chargebacks. In the event of a fraudulent transaction with a credit card, we will work with the card holder, the bank or card provider in a good faith attempt to rectify the situation.
Registry Service Fee and Non-Refundability
My World Registry does not have a fee to sign-up and create an account, create a registry or list an Experience. There is a total Service Fee of 3% on each cash contribution to a registry and monetary gifts by any individual or entity to any registry. This Service Fee excludes the credit card processing fee due to the merchant bank. THE FEE for any cash contribution and monetary gift IS NON-REFUNDABLE, EVEN IF THE EVENT, EXPERIENCE, OR REGISTRY IS CANCELLED.
Becoming an Experience Provider
You can apply to become a Experience Provider by completing the application process which can be initiated via our Contact Us form on the Platform. My World Registry reserves the right to approve or reject any Experience Provider application, for any reason. If you are approved and you agree to the terms and conditions of the “Experience Provider Agreement” made available to you in connection with the application process and found here, you will be deemed a Experience Provider. The “Experience Provider Agreement” contains terms regarding the creation and posting of Experience Listings, how and what Experience Providers get paid for their Experiences and other terms specific to a Experience Provider’s provision of Experiences in connection with the Platform.

Claims of Infringement
U.S. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by My World Registry infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information as required by 17 USC. § 512(c)(3)(A): (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow My World Registry to locate the material on the site; (d) the name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send My World Registry a counter-notice.
Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. Please consult your legal counsel before filing a notice or counter-notice. There can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.

MWR Experience Provider Agreement
Last Updated: March 9, 2020
The Provider Agreement contains terms regarding the creation and posting of Experience Listings (also called an “Experience” herein, both of which are defined as an experience that you as an Experience Provider are promoting selling and providing on the MWR online platform(s)), how and what Experience Providers get paid for their Experience Listings and other terms specific to an Experience Provider’s Experience Listings in connection with the Services (defined as all services provided by MWR, including but not limited to MWR’s provision of online platform(s) for the sale and purchase of experiences and gifts). Unless otherwise defined in this Provider Agreement, all capitalized terms have the meaning provided in the MWR Terms.
Please read this Provider Agreement carefully. If you don’t agree to its terms and conditions you will not become an Experience Provider and you may not offer Experience Listings in connection with the Services. MWR reserves the right to approve or reject any Experience Provider application, for any or no reason.
Experience Listings and Experience Purchasing
If you are listing an Experience in our website for the first time, MWR will also publish a “Bio” for your Experience, for which an interview will be conducted by a MWR staff member in order to draft the Bio. Your Bio shall be drafted by a MWR staff member and will include a description of: you as the provider, your inspiration, experience and expertise, and the Experience, along with any mutually approved images and a short introductory video of you introducing yourself and your expertise. The Bio will be displayed with all Experiences you provide. Unless MWR uses a Bio, word by word, that has been previously published by you elsewhere, MWR owns the copyrights for the MWR version of your Bio. You must negotiate the cost of using the Bio, if you wish to use the Bio in any other place besides the MWR online platform(s). The description of your Experience Listing is a proprietary marketing asset owned by MWR, unless the description is a simply copied and /from a description you have already drafted.
For each Experience, MWR will create an Experience Listing via the “MWR Admin portal”, and you will have access to through your Experience Provider Admin portal page. When you are in the process of creating your Experience with a MWR staff member, you will be asked questions about the Experience that will provide “Customers” (defined as the person(s) who are purchasing the Experience and/or enjoying the Experience he/she received as a gift) with the information that MWR believes they need. You must also inform of any applicable requirements which must be met by the Customer(s), including but not limited to the recommended health, fitness and skill level, time and location, form of delivery of the Experience (such as face to face, by phone, or virtually/online), and the expiration date of the Experience You will also set the listing price for your Experience, as further described below under the section titled “Financial Terms”. See below regarding the pricing requirements for Exclusive versus Non-Exclusive Experiences (terms defined below).
After your Experience Listing information and details are complete, MWR will conduct a final review and you will be requested to approve all the information and images being published. Once your Experience Listing is approved, the applicable Experience will be published and offered for sale on MWR’s online platform(s) (i.e., MWR’s website). However, it will not be available for purchase on the front end of the website if the Experience Provider has not successfully linked their bank account on the Admin portal.
Changes to an Experience Listing must be submitted to MWR for approval prior to publication. Your ability to change or modify an Experience Listing after it’s been posted to the Services (and it’s visible on our website) can be modified anytime; however you are bound to the terms of an Experience Listing once it is purchased by a Customer. For Experiences that require the Customer and Experience Provider to agree on particulars such as the time and location for the Experience (“Scheduled Experiences”), the Experience Listing can be modified up until the time a Customer has submitted a request to schedule your Experience, paid a deposit for it, or purchased it for its full price. For Experiences that constitute an event with a set date, the Experience Listing can be modified up until the time that the first Customer registers for the event Experience, after which time, the Experience Listing must remain unchanged.
Once an Experience has been approved for publication by Experience Provider and made available for purchase on MWR’s online platform or website, any substantial changes to the experience which would make the Experience no longer qualify to be sold on MWR’s website and therefore need to be taken down or cancelled, including if Experience Provider cancels or deactivates an Experience within six months of being published Experience Provider will be charged a non-refundable administrative fee of $125. However, you shall not be obligated to pay a non-refundable administrative fee of $125 if the reason for cancellation or deactivation is for reasons not under your control, which shall be defined specifically as a death, relocation, or major catastrophe directly affecting your ability to provide the Experience as published.
MWR has the right to terminate the offering of any Experience via the Services and remove any Experience Listing at any time for any or no reason in MWR’s sole discretion (including, without limitation, if such Experience is related to any unlawful, distasteful, or prejudicial activity, or is inconsistent with MWR’s brand identity). MWR does not act as an insurer or as your contracting agent. If your profession is one that professionals normally require insurance to perform, then maintaining the appropriate insurance for your industry is required under the terms of this Provider Agreement. If your profession is one that professionals do not normally maintain insurance to perform, we still highly recommend that you obtain appropriate insurance for any Experience you provide.
Change Requests and Experience Scheduling
Changes to an Experience Listing prior to a Customer purchase is discussed above. However, once an Experience is purchased by a Customer, you and the Customer may negotiate a potential modification of the Experience (“Change Request”). If you choose to allow Change Requests in connection with your Experience, you can indicate the availability of this option in your Experience Listing. You will be responsible for managing all aspects of any Change Request including monetary transactions of any applicable fees directly with the Customer. If you will allow schedule changes for your Experience, we recommend that you include that option on the Experience Listing’s published details as additional information, and mention any fees associated with such changes, and any due date for such changes.
For Scheduled Experiences, or for Experiences that cannot be purchased instantly and require an interview, qualification or application process, you must respond to a notification of inquiry, deposit paid or purchase with a request to schedule your Experience within forty-eight (48) hours, or preferably sooner when possible. MWR may, at their discretion, make a good faith effort to contact you if you do not reply to a schedule request in a timely manner. MWR reserves the right to 1) remove your Experiences and/or Experience Provider account from the Services if you do not respond to schedule requests, 2) charge you an administrative fee of $125 and 3) you will be required to refund all payments you received for any Experience that has not been yet provided, within twenty-four (24) hours of MWR removing your Experience Listing. The time of receipt of the purchase and scheduling request will be tracked by MWR via the Services. If you and the End User agree on the time and location (as applicable) for the Experience, you are required to send My World Registry an e-mail notification.
You are required to keep an accurate count of the number of available spots for any given Experience at all times and to update MWR of the remaining spots available.
A Group Event allows unrelated Customers to participate in the same experience and you may determine what constitutes the minimum amount of Customer needed for the Group Event. If you choose to create a Group Event that requires a minimum number of sold Customers to occur, you will have to inform potential Customers of that minimum in your Experience Listing including the scheduled date and time for the Group Event, the minimum Customer threshold, and the final date the Group Event can be purchased. You are required to set a event viability date that is at least seven (7) days prior to the date the applicable Experience is scheduled to take place. After the minimum Customer threshold has been reached, event tickets will continue to be sold until the date that you allow (“Sell By Date”) or until all tickets have been sold out. If the minimum Customer threshold is not reached by the event viability date, you will have one day to manually confirm the experience with only the ticket quantity currently purchased. Otherwise, the Group Event will be cancelled, and we will notify you and all Customers who have purchased tickets of the cancellation, cancel their orders and you will be required to immediately refund each the total fees paid for their tickets. You will not be paid for cancelled Group Events.
You are required to keep an accurate count of the number of available Group Event tickets available at all times and to update MWR of the remaining tickets available. If MWR sells a ticket for which there is not a spot available due to your failure to notify MWR of the tickets left available for any reason, you will refund the full purchase price paid by the Customer (including MWR’s Platform Fee) directly to the Customer, and cover any related costs of such refund. MWR shall be entitled to keep the Platform Fee collected as an earned fee for successfully selling the Experience. Therefore, you will refund the listed public sales price to the Customer, and not just the portion of the sales price you received, within 24 hours, in the form of a check, PayPal or similar, or bank transfer as preferred by the Customer. One exception to the repayment of the Platform Fee portion of Customer’s price paid, is if you do not or cannot provide the Experience due to death, relocation, or major catastrophe directly affecting your ability to provide the Experience as published.
Experience Provider Collaboration, Partnership, Promotions and Marketing Agreement Terms
An Experience Provider offering group events (experiences, workshops, classes, group sessions, or any event) in collaboration with MWR and offered in the platform is expected and encouraged to invite people from their existing networks to the event. The goal of MWR events is to allow people who may already know the Experience Provider see a different side of such Experience Provider, or learn something about them that they didn’t know, or perhaps understand what the Experience Provider does and offers better, and have a chance to ask questions. This is a combined effort to bring in more customers and awareness about the featured Experience Provider, and the expectation is that the Experience Provider honors our referral fee for anyone who attended the group event who ends up booking services afterwards, regardless of whether they knew the Experience Provider beforehand or not. The exception is anyone who is or has been already getting services from the Experience Provider prior to becoming an Experience Provider at our platform.
An Experience Provider can discontinue a partnership with My World Registry at any point in time with a written notice to the Founder and President. Any experiences currently on the marketplace of the website shall remain active for an additional two months from the given notice or deactivation of partnership, and any purchases of them must be honored by the experience provider. However, the minimum length of time for an experience to remain active shall remain as six months from the published date on the marketplace and there is an administrative fee of $125 to deactivate it before that time has passed. For example, if an experience has been active for only one month when the experience provider presented the written notice to terminate the partnership, the experience provider will have the choice to either keep it active until the six month minimum has passed, or pay the $125 administrative fee and take it down from the website immediately.
An Experience Provider will honor the agreed upon MWR fee for all subsequent experiences and services purchased and booked outside of MWR’s platform, by any person who has booked or purchased an experience via our platform or marketing channels for a minimum of the first $1,000 they spend on such Experience Provider’s services or experiences. These customers will and shall still be able to continue to buy repeat or new Experiences offered by an Experience Provider via our platform, without price amount limitations.
Experience Fulfillment and Customer Information
Unless otherwise agreed upon in writing, you – and not My World Registry – are the seller of the Experiences and your services (including any add-ons or extras) described in your Experience Listing.
