1. Acceptance of orders.
By using any or all of our Services, including but not limited to the downloading and use of the software supplied to you by us (the “Software”), you agree to be bound by these Terms. All orders are accepted according to these Terms.
After processing an order, the uploaded file is kept on the Company’s server for a period of eight (8) weeks. In case of quality related issues we can use this file for verification purposes.
You agree that the Company shall not be liable to you for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Services. You are responsible for creating backups of any content you send to us.
You are responsible for the content of all publications incorporating the content you send to us. The Company does not accept any liability for copyright of the content used in your publication. The responsibility for possible consequences of unlawful use of protected data rests with you. Furthermore you will be subject to the legal provisions of your country. You must therefore have the legal right to copy and display each image that you submit for your publication. The Company does not control the content of your publication and does not have any obligation to monitor such content for any purpose. You acknowledge that you are solely responsible for all content and material you provide to us.
3. Image Rights
The Company does not claim ownership rights in any image contained in your publication. In order to enable us to fulfill any orders for you or others who have access to your images, you grant to us a non-exclusive, royalty-free license to use, copy, distribute, and display those images.
4. Use of the Software
The Software may only be used to compose a photo book or one of the other offered products and then to place an order. You are strictly prohibited from decompiling the Software, undertaking, causing, permitting or authorizing, in any way, the modification, creation of derivative works, translation, reverse engineering, decompiling, disassembling or hacking of the Software.
The Company can in no way be held responsible for damage or loss of the uploaded files. The Company states that the quality of the prints in the ordered publications can in no way be better than may be expected on the basis of what is shown on the computer screen. Our liability remains limited to clearly identified production mistakes.
6. Delivery time
Orders are produced within four (4) to nine (9) working days after the payment has been received. Delays in the delivery time will never be a cause for cancellation or refunds.
All brand, product and service names used in this Service which identify the Company or third parties and their products and services are proprietary marks of the Company and/or the relevant third parties. Nothing in the Services shall be deemed to confer on any person any license or right on the part of the Company or any third party with respect to any such image, logo or name.
