Thanks for Visiting the Bed Bath & Beyond Web Site
The www.bedbathandbeyond.com web site (the "Site") is owned, operated and maintained by Bed Bath & Beyond Inc., the parent company to the group of subsidiaries that operate retail store chains under the names Bed Bath & Beyond, Christmas Tree Shops, Harmon and Harmon Face Values and buybuy BABY. We refer to Bed Bath & Beyond Inc., as, the "Company" while we refer to the Bed Bath & Beyond, Christmas Tree Shops, AndThat!, Harmon and Harmon Face Values and buybuy BABY brands collectively as, the "Brands". We refer to the Company and the Brands together as "Bed Bath & Beyond" "we" "us" or "our". We hope you enjoy using the Site. Because of the unique and exciting nature of the Internet and our desire to provide you with a great experience, we need to point out to you some legal rules of the road as they apply to your visit here and use of our Site. We hope all of this is clear, but if you have any questions after reading this, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition to the lower case words "we" "us" and "our" defined above, you will notice that we capitalize certain words in these terms and conditions even though the rules of grammar do not require that they be capitalized. We do this because these words have specific meanings in these terms and conditions. These specific meaning are found where the capitalized words are placed in bold text inside parentheses and quotation marks.

Materials Submitted to Us
We welcome any comments you may have regarding Bed Bath & Beyond's stores, Site, merchandise, and services. Except for content submitted by you through our Wedding & Gift Registry and/or the Bridal Toolkit which are discussed in more detail below, any comments you submit to us through our Site, such as remarks, suggestions, ideas, graphics, or other information becomes and remains our exclusive property, even if this agreement is later terminated. This means that we do not have to treat any such submission (including, but not limited to, product or advertising ideas) as confidential. We will not pay you or anyone else for any information that you provide which is used by us.
Additionally, you acknowledge that you have full responsibility for any such submission you make, including its legality, reliability, appropriateness, originality, and copyright. Bed Bath & Beyond takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any submissions you make.
Wedding & Gift Registry and Bridal Toolkit
We offer special wedding and wedding-planning features through the Wedding & Gift Registry and Bridal Toolkit portions of the Site (the
"Bridal Features"). The Bridal Features allow you to submit, post and/or publish materials on or through the Site including text, photos, videos and graphics ("Content"). The Bridal Features and Content are governed by these terms and conditions and also by this section. Please read this section carefully as some of its language is necessarily dense and legalistic. We will try to explain these portions in plain-English as best we can. The Bridal Features, including your Personal Wedding Site, are accessible by the public. IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT CONTENT AND OTHER MATERIALS SUBMITTED BY YOU MAY BE RECORDED AND STORED IN MULTIPLE PLACES, BOTH ON OUR SITE AND ELSEWHERE ON THE INTERNET AND ARE LIKELY TO BE ACCESSIBLE FOR A LONG TIME. You have no control over who will eventually see such materials. Be careful and selective about the personal information that you disclose about yourself and others and do not disclose sensitive, proprietary or confidential information.
- Content Ownership; Indemnity. As between you and Bed Bath & Beyond, you are and will remain the owner of the Content and represent and warrant to us that the Content is original to you and that no other party has any rights to it including so-called "moral rights." You also agree to defend, indemnify and hold Bed Bath & Beyond, its affiliates, and its and their directors, officers, employees and agents harmless from any and all claims, liabilities, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, arising in any way from your use of the Site, your posting, submitting, publishing or transmitting any Content or other materials and/or your breach or violation of the law or of these Terms and Conditions. Bed Bath & Beyond reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, and in such case, you agree to cooperate with Bed Bath & Beyond’s defense of such claim. In other words, you promise that no other company or person will claim that you stole or are inappropriately using the Content and that if they do, or if you do other things that may make us liable for legal claims for what you do using the Bridal Features, you will legally protect us from that claim and pay any money that might be owed as a result, whether to our lawyers, your lawyers, a court or the other person or company making the claim.
- Our Right to Use the Content. Although, as we explain above, you retain ownership of the Content, by submitting, posting or displaying Content you are automatically granting, and hereby do grant to Bed Bath & Beyond, a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, fully paid-up, fully transferable license to use (including copy, display, perform, publish, modify, adapt and translate) such Content in all forms and media in connection with the Bridal Features (the "License"). This means that our right to possess, use and display the Content anywhere and through any means the Internet allows will never expire, that we will never owe you any money for it and that we may allow others to use or possess the Content, for instance to host the Bridal Features for us or if we were to sell or re-organize our business. If you remove the Content from the Bridal Features, however, we will try to ensure that it no longer appears on the Site and is removed from our internal systems and no longer used. We will also do our best to make sure any company or person that we might give the Content to follows the same rules and procedures we do.
- Right to Monitor and Editorial Control. Bed Bath & Beyond reserves the right, but does not have an obligation, to monitor and/or review all materials posted to the Site or through the Site’s services or features by users, and we are not responsible for any such materials posted by users. However, we reserve the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any law, regulation or government request, or to edit, refuse to post or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, that in our sole discretion are objectionable or in violation of these Terms and Conditions, Bed Bath & Beyond’s policies or applicable law. We may also impose limits on certain Bridal Features or restrict your access to part or all of the Bridal Features without notice or penalty if we believe you are in breach of the guidelines set forth in this paragraph, these Terms and Conditions or applicable law, or for any other reason without notice or liability.
- Copyright Agent; Repeat Infringers. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes upon their rights under US copyright law. If you believe that materials we host on or through the Bridal Features infringe upon your copyright rights, you may request that the material be removed, or that access to it be blocked. If you believe that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Bed Bath & Beyond maintains a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of Site use privileges of users who are repeat infringers of intellectual property rights. Please be aware that there can be substantial penalties for false claims. Notices and counter-notices for the Site should be sent to:

We currently have stores in each and every state in the United States and in the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. In certain states we are also required to charge tax on shipping charges.
