Company prices are effective for thirty (30) days, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing by the Company; however, prices for separately-charged, third-party materials and services are hereby acknowledged to be outside the control of the Company, and are subject to change at any time. Company will notify Customer of any price changes of which it becomes aware prior to production or shipment. Customer shall be responsible for payment of any and all local, state, and Federal taxes which may be applicable to each order. At the sole discretion of the Company, immediately upon receipt of Customer's order by the Company, either an authorization will be requested from Customer's credit card provider to confirm the availability funds in an amount equal to the grand total of Customer's order, or Customer's credit card will be charged immediately upon receipt of Buyer's order by the Company.
The Customer must make and transmit to the Company in writing any and all claims no later than forty-eight (48) hours after delivery of product(s) from an order. If such a claim is not made within those 48 hours, Company shall understand that the product has been accepted by Customer. By accepting the product, the Customer acknowledges that the Company has satisfied in whole all terms, conditions, and specifications of the order, purchase, and delivery process. Liability of the Company in all claims shall be limited to the sale price paid by Customer at the time of purchase of allegedly defective goods, without additional liability for special or consequential damages. As security for payment of any sum due under the terms of an agreement, Customer hereby grants to the Company a security interest in Customer property, and Company reserves the right to place and hold a lien on all Customer property in Company possession. This right applies even if credit shall have been extended, notes shall have been accepted, trade acceptances shall have been made, or payment shall have been guaranteed. If payment is not made in consideration of goods and/or services received, the Customer shall be liable for all legal and collection costs incurred by the Company in its efforts to recover such payment.

Following conveyance to the Company, the Customer shall retain legal ownership or remain the licensee of such items.

The Customer also agrees not to infringe on and to comply with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations applicable to trademarks, patents, trade secrets, the right of privacy, the right of publicity or other legal right of any third party. The customer recognizes that because subject matter does not have to bear a copyright notice, emblem, or seal in order to be protected by copyright law, absence of such notice does not necessarily ensure the Customer of a right to reproduce. The customer further warrants that no copyright notice has been removed from any material used in preparing any subject matter for reproduction or sale. To support these warranties, the customer agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Company from all liability, damages, and fees which may be assessed or incurred in any legal action connected with copyright infringement involving any item produced or provided hereon.
Upon Customer submission of questions, comments, suggestions, ideas, or other material via any method of communication or conveyance, Customer grants Company permission to use such submissions for marketing or other promotional purposes without compensation or attribution of any kind to Customer at any time. Customer agrees that Company shall have no obligation to keep any submissions confidential, and Customer further waives all rights to claims against Company based on "moral rights" or similar justification which may arise due to Company's use of a Customer submission.
