You agree to notify us promptly of any unauthorized use or disclosure of your password, username or account.
6. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE
The primary value of the Service is the ability for users and potential purchasers ("Users") to order the creation of Fractures that display images, photos, graphics or other content (“Images”) they upload [or purchase through the Fracture Marketplace]. The Fracture process is totally digital and completed by means of computer interaction alone between the Users and the Service. You agree that no Fracture employee, employer, officer, owner, agent or authorized representative is responsible for monitoring any Images, whether uploaded by you or any other user of the Service, neither while on the website, nor after purchase and during the production process. You agree that any orders you submit and your Images will not be checked for content, size, orientation, mounting option, border selection, spelling errors, grammatical errors, logical errors, aesthetic quality, color matching or any other factor that is within the User's Realm of Control through the use of the editor on the Service. You shall be solely responsible for checking your order and submitted or purchased Images during the purchasing process for layout and content and agree that you have done so.
"Realm of Control" refers to any part of an Image that is editable by the User. Including but not limited to: color, size, border selection, orientation, mounting option, font size, font type, font style, font color, position of text, position of graphics, color of graphics, quantity of text, quantity of graphics, spelling of text, use of text, size of graphics, justification of graphics, justification of images, or color of the background.
While Fracture shall have no obligation to review the content of your order or any Image, it reserves the right to do so and you are bound by the restrictions as laid out in these Terms of Service. Should it come to the attention of Fracture that you have violated the Terms of Service, you agree that Fracture may send you notice of cancellation and your order will be canceled. You further agree that the purchase price of your order, less any cost incurred during the processing of your order and its cancellation, will be returned within 90 days of your receipt of notice of cancellation.
7. USER CONDUCT
Content. You are solely responsible for all Images and any other data, text, software, audio, video, files or other materials (“User Content”) which is transmitted, uploaded, posted, or distributed by you through the Service. You warrant and represent that you own all right, title and interest, or have sufficient permissions, to that Image or User Content and any likenesses contained in that Image or User Content. You agree to not post, upload or request Fractures based on any Images to which you do not have the rights or permission. You agree that the Images or User Content that you may provide, upload or post to the Service does not contain any material or content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, vulgar, harassing, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, indecent, inflammatory, libelous, tortious, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable, or invasive of another's rights including but not limited to rights of copyright, celebrity, publicity, privacy and intellectual property, or otherwise in violation of any federal, state or local law, rule or regulation. Our production of a Fracture based on any Image provided by you or any other user, including inclusion of any Image in the Fracture Marketplace, does not indicate that Fracture accepts, approves or endorses the Image or that the Image is in compliance with any applicable laws or these Terms or Service or otherwise absolve you of any liability or harm arising from use of such Image.
Fracture does not own or control the Images or other User Content posted by Users via the Service, including without limitation, Images offered through the Fracture Marketplace and, does not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such Images or User Content. You may be exposed to Images or User Content posted by other Users and Artists that may be offensive, indecent or objectionable or otherwise in violation of our Terms of Service. Fracture has no obligation, but reserves the right, to monitor, flag or remove any Images or User Content it believes in violation of the Terms of Service. Under no circumstances will Fracture be liable in any way for any Image or other User Content posted by you or any User or third party, including, but not limited to, liability for any errors or omissions in any Image or User Content or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Image or User Content posted, viewed, emailed or otherwise transmitted by you via the Service. The Service is not intended as a storage depository for your Images or User Content. You are responsible for retaining copies of your Images and User Content.
User Conduct. By using the Service, you agree that you shall not: (i) impersonate any person or entity or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with any person or entity; (ii) upload, download, post or otherwise transmit, any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, junk mail, spam, chain letters or any other form of solicitation, or use any User information obtained through the Service in order to do any of the foregoing; (iii) upload, post or otherwise transmit any code, files or programs that contain any software viruses or is designed or intended to interrupt, destroy or limit the functionality of any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment or to collect, obtain or store User information or other materials from the Service to which you do not have permission; (iv) transmit or provide any false or misleading information; (v) disrupt or interfere with the security of or otherwise abuse the Site or the Service or any services, system resources, accounts, servers, databases or networks connected to or accessible through the Service; (vi) disrupt or interfere with any other user’s use of the Service, including by overloading, flooding, spamming, or crashing the Site, Service or underlying systems; or (vii) use the Service in any manner that would violate any applicable law or could expose Fracture, other users or any other person to liability.
Color Matching. Fracture sells its products through the Site and the Images and sample products are viewable by users through computers connected to the Internet. These computers may view Fracture products solely through their computer screens ("Monitors"). Monitors may be configured to display images and colors in a variety of ways, both through the use of hardware setup and software setup. There are many possible settings for Monitors and there is no true uniform standard to which all Monitors conform, especially with regards to color. What may look one way on one monitor, will look different on another.
You agree that Fracture does not guarantee that the colors as they appear on your Monitor will look the same as the colors as they appear on the purchased product. Fracture works hard to make the colors on the screen be as true as possible to the printed colors, however, the differences in Monitors and the differences between light and pigment make it impossible to guarantee matching colors for all Users. If you are an Artist, you understand that final Fractures made from your Images may not match your original artwork due to such limitations in technical capabilities.
Quality of Images. Fracture permits users to upload Images onto the Service for use in the fulfillment of your order. You agree that Fracture is not responsible for the quality of the Images you or any other User upload.
You agree that you alone are responsible for making sure that the quality of the Image you are uploading is of high enough quality to be satisfactory to you at the size you select on the product that you are purchasing. We cannot guess what you may have wanted when you chose or uploaded your Image and are not responsible for assessing whether your Image is appropriate or capable of being manufactured at the parameters you have chosen. Images are created and stored in a variety of ways and you agree that Fracture is not responsible for ensuring quality images for any image file format available on the Website.
Production Time. Fracture works hard to ensure that orders will be produced and exit the Fracture facility as soon as possible. Anticipated production times are updated frequently, and listed during the ordering process. Special deadlines (eg: Holidays) are published on our website as soon as they are available. However, we make no guarantees as to any delivery times and will have no liability to you for any delay in shipping your product.
You agree that our production time frame may depend on your response time to our inquiries regarding your order, and your selection of shipping options and providers.
Shipment. Title and risk of loss or damage to your purchased goods shall pass to you at the time Fracture deposits such purchased goods with its designated shipper. We reserve the right to ship partial orders (at no additional cost to you), and the portion of any order that is partially shipped may be charged at the time of shipment.
Return And Refund Policy.
a. Happiness Guarantee
You have 60 days after purchase of the product to notify us of any immediate issues with the product, should they arise. You agree to send us a photograph of the product, and provide us with information regarding your issues to support [at] FractureMe [dot] com. We reserve the right to request that your return the product to us and at our discretion; offer a reprint; issue store credit for items not including shipping; take no action; or, on the rare occurrence (in that we have exhausted all possible solutions and cannot find a resolution), offer a refund. You also agree that a shipping fee may be applied to any reprinted orders that do not fall into the categories of shipping damages or Lifetime Warranty.
b. Lifetime Warranty
You agree that Fracture does its best to ensure the products it sells are free from manufacturing defects and as such will be good for the lifetime of the product (estimated at 5 years). If the product fails due to a manufacturing defect during that time, you agree to take a photograph of the failed product and send the photograph or, if requested by us, the original failed product to Fracture.
Upon receipt of the product or the photograph, Fracture, at its sole option, will send a replacement of the product or will issue Fracture credit for the original purchase price paid for the failed or broken product(s). Fracture store credit can be used on the Service or Site for any purchase. Fracture will have no liability for any products which have been misused, mishandled, stored or used in extreme environmental conditions, installed, handled, displayed, or used other than in accordance with instructions provided by Fracture, or intentionally or recklessly damaged by you or any third party.
Fracture does not guarantee or warrant that its products will work for any unintended purpose or in any set of conditions; this also includes coverage of our “transparent” and “no mount” prints as they are technically incomplete products and cannot be used with our approved mounting hardware. You agree that the determination of whether a product(s) failure or breakage is due to a manufacturing defect is within the sole discretion of Fracture.
You further agree to provide full and complete information regarding the circumstances of the failure or breakage, including but not limited to the use of the product, the conditions the product was in, and any other information useful to an informed determination by Fracture as to the cause of the failure or breakage.
Please note that Fracture is unable to issue a refund after 90 days of purchase.
Acceptance; Availability of Products; Promotions. All orders are subject to our acceptance. We may refuse to accept any order or any portion of an order in our sole discretion. We reserve the right, with or without prior notice, to limit the available quantity of or discontinue any product or service or availability of Images available through the Fracture Marketplace; to honor, or impose conditions on the honoring of, any coupon, coupon code, promotional code or other similar promotions; to bar any user from making any or all purchase(s); and/or to refuse to provide any user with any product or service.
Referral codes may only be redeemed by individuals who have not purchased a Fracture before, and are limited to one code per household. Fracture retains the right to deny or refuse any credits redeemed through the use of the referral program, including cases where a code has been posted publicly (i.e. an audience beyond direct friends and family) - or otherwise used outside of the intended purposes of sharing with friends and family. You agree that Fracture is the sole party responsible in determining the fair use of a referral code, and that you will only use the referral program in the way it was intended to be used. If we determine that a code has been abused in any way (such as public social media postings, coupon publishing houses like retailmenot.com or similar), the code will be disabled along with all previous credits and a new code will be issued to the referrer. If you feel your code has been disabled in error, please contact us and we will work to determine a solution.
Not For Resale. The products are provided for your personal, noncommercial use and not for resale without Fracture’s prior written consent.
Changes To Your Order. Fracture provides many opportunities to review, revise and cancel the order process before actually placing your order. Fracture is able to offer its products at the present prices due to the efficiency of allowing the customer to create and modify their own products. You agree that Fracture is not responsible for reviewing, revising or canceling orders, products or images once an order has been placed. A Fracture employee, employer, officer, owner or authorized agent may revise or cancel an order but is not required or obligated to do so. You agree that you have reviewed your order and that no further additions, corrections or changes need to be made and that your order is final as is.
