Pictli Terms of Use

Hi. Below is our agreement with our customers in all its legal glory. In these yellow boxes we will try and outline in plain English summaries of the legal details that follow. Of course these summaries are not part of the legal terms and should not be thought of as advice. This first part introduces our services and us.
The next part says that if you use our services you agree to the terms in this agreement.

YOUR USE OF OUR SITES AND APPS

This section says you agree the site will be used as intended; a consumer site for personal use and that you aren’t a corporation or individual using or copying the site or apps for nefarious purposes. Also, on nefarious purposes, because we are an image service, there is a list of things we don’t tolerate like illegal images or uses for instance. If we see stuff like that, we have the right to ignore it and delete it from our servers.
Because we use the US Post Office to mail products, the following section has a list of all the things the US Post Office forbids mailing like disparaging or libelous material, nudity and discriminating pictures for example.

YOUR ACCOUNT

To use Pictli you must be 18 years and older and you are responsible for all activity on your account.

MAKING PURCHASES

You agree that you will use a valid payment method that you are responsible for payment for products. We try our best to be as clear as possible about descriptions and pricing on the site and occasionally change pricing and design and discontinue products or services. Sometimes we might ship partial orders for instance if we are waiting for inventory. We will try and contact you if that’s the case.

CONTESTS, SWEEPSTAKES AND PROMOTIONS.

Sometimes we run contests and promotions ourselves and with partners. Those contests and promotions may have another set of terms separate from this general agreement. In general we expect contests and promotions to be used once per user and as intended.

MOBILE APPLICATIONS

Our mobile app uses carrier data and may show our products differently from phone to phone.

MATERIALS SUBMITTED BY CUSTOMER

This is a biggie. You own every picture you upload and we do not. We can manipulate, transmit and print it as necessary to make the product you order. Because you are telling us you own the images you upload you are also telling us that there are no legal restrictions on those images such as copyright or necessary model releases. If we get notice that someone claims they have a copyright or model claim, for instance, on an image you upload we may take actions such as deleting it from our servers.

DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES

We do our best to provide a great service, but we can’t guarantee it will always work. Our services are provided “as-is.”

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

If something bad happens as a result to your use of our services, we’re not liable except for the amount of your order.

POLICY FOR IDEA SUBMISSION

We love your ideas for improving our service and products. If you send us ideas we may use them and you agree to let us own those ideas.

NOTICE FOR CALIFORNIA USERS

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY NOTICES

We own all of things we make to support our service including our name.

JURISDICTIONAL ISSUES

Pictli is designed for legal use in the United States only.

MISCELLANEOUS

We use California law to run our business and the County of San Francisco as the jurisdiction. There is nothing more to this agreement than the agreement itself and it is the ultimate word on how we operate.

TERMINATION

You may stop using us at any time for any reason and we may delete your material if you do.

ARBITRATION AGREEMENT

If we get in a disagreement we will have an arbitrator or small claims court settle it for us rather than bringing a lawsuit in court. If you do want such a settlement you will tell us in a letter sent to our listed address. In general disputes under $10,000 are handled a little differently than disputes over $10,000. Neither one of us will join a “class” or group of people suing the other. We’ll settle disagreements one on one.
