Last revised: March 31, 2016
In case you are located in the United States this Agreement requires the use of arbitration on an individual basis to resolve disputes, rather than jury trials or class actions, and also limits the remedies available to you in the event of a dispute.
ExLogo provides an online platform that helps connect customers who wish to purchase designs (“Customers”) and designers who wish to provide such designs (“Designers”), through the Logo Design Store (defined: the “Services”). “User” means any user of the Site or Service, and may be a Designer or a Customer. If you are a User, the provisions in this Agreement regarding Users apply to you. If you are also a Customer, further the provisions in this Agreement regarding Customers apply to you. If you are also a Designer, further the provisions in this Agreement regarding Designers apply to you. “Sold Design” means the purchased Logo Design Template (and any customized version thereof). “Sale” means the applicable sale. “IPR” means all trade secrets, copyrights, trademarks, mask work rights, patents and other intellectual property rights recognized by the laws of any country.
1.2 Logo Design Store.
(a) Designers may list design templates (“Logo Design Templates”) for sale in ExLogo’s Logo Design Store (“Logo Design Store”), by creating a listing, uploading the Logo Design Template (in the file format specified by ExLogo), and following the instructions on the Site. ExLogo reserves the right to modify and/or remove any Logo Design Templates in its sole non-discriminatory discretion (including any Logo Design Template similar to other Logo Design Templates on the Site or other websites, or does not meet ExLogo quality standards). ExLogo will set and may modify the selling price of any Logo Design Template. If Designer does not agree with any modifications or pricing, then Designer may remove the Logo Design Template from the Logo Design Store. During the time a Logo Design Template is listed for sale in the Logo Design Store, Designer hereby grants ExLogo the exclusive right to market and sell the Logo Design Template (and designs based on the Logo Design Template) and will not market or sell the Logo Design Template (or designs based on the Logo Design Template) other than through the Site. (b) Once a Customer purchases a Logo Design Template, Customer may request (in which case the Designer must provide) up to two rounds of customizations to the Logo Design Template for the purposes of inserting Customer’s brand name or making minor customizations to the Design Template itself. Designer may refuse to make customizations which are in addition to the forgoing. Designer must deliver each required round of customizations to Customer within 24 hours after receiving Customer’s requests, otherwise ExLogo may (upon Customer’s request and in ExLogo’s discretion) cancel the sale of the Logo Design Template to the Customer or perform the customizations itself or through its subcontractors, in which case, Designer will forfeit 30% of the Designer Fee for such sale (or a lesser amount if required under applicable law for customers located in the EEA). Customer will be deemed to have accepted the resulting design unless the design does not include the requested customizations and Customer provides notice of rejection to ExLogo and Designer within 48 hours of delivery of the design. If the cause for the notice of rejection is not cured within 30 days of the notice of rejection (and for customers located in the EEA you’ve exhausted your Mandatory Statutory Rights), Customer will be refunded the Customer Payment and Customer will have no right to use the Logo Design Template or resulting design in any way. If ExLogo determines, in its sole and absolute discretion that a delivered Logo Design Template (including customizations made by the Designer) complied with the requirements of this Section 1.2 and Customer’s rejection was therefore unwarranted, then ExLogo may determine that the Design Template and resulting design is instead accepted by Customer and such determination is final and conclusive. (c) Some jurisdictions provide Customer certain Mandatory Statutory Rights which remain unaffected.
2. Design Transfer Agreement.
The Design Transfer Agreement, available at http://exlogo.com/design-transfer-agreement, sets forth the legally binding terms between the applicable Designer and Customer for the sale of a Sold Design through the Logo Design Store. The Design Transfer Agreement, available at http://exlogo.com/design-transfer-agreement, sets forth the legally binding terms between the applicable Designer and Customer for the sale of a Sold Design through the Project Service.
3. Payment Terms.
The following terms apply to Customers who have purchased a Sold Design and Designers who have sold a Sold Design.
3.1 Payment and Delivery.
For the Logo Design Store, (a) Customer will pay the Customer Payment to ExLogo and ExLogo will pay Designer the Designer Fee (subject to first receiving payment from Customer), and (b) Designer will upload the Sold Design and ExLogo will deliver the Sold Design to Customer, in a format specified by ExLogo. The “Designer Fee” means the Customer Payment, minus the fees and charges imposed by ExLogo.
ExLogo do not provide refunds.
3.3 General Payment Terms.
All payment will be in the US dollars. You agree that you are responsible for the collection and/or payment of all Taxes which you may be liable for in any jurisdiction arising from your sale or purchase of any Sold Designs via the Site. ExLogo is not responsible for collecting, reporting, paying, or remitting to you any such Taxes. “Taxes” means any applicable duties, sales taxes, GST, VAT or other taxes which may be levied in respect of a transaction contemplated by this Agreement.
4. Important Disclaimers and Release
We make no warranties regarding the Logo Design Templates or any other products or services provided by Designers, Customers, or other Users and each of the foregoing are provided by us “AS IS”. Designers sell and Customers buy Sold Designs at their own risk. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any transaction with any other User. Your interactions with other users are solely between you and such User and ExLogo will not be responsible for any loss or damage incurred as the result of any such interactions (excluding those directly due to ExLogo’ acts or the Services). If there is a dispute between you and any User, we are under no obligation to become involved. Notwithstanding the foregoing, ExLogo will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide the Services described in this Agreement.
You hereby release and forever discharge us (and our officers, employees, agents, successors, and assigns) from, and hereby waive and release, each and every past, present and future dispute, claim, controversy, demand, right, obligation, liability, action and cause of action of every kind and nature (including personal injuries, death, and property damage), that has arisen or arises directly or indirectly out of, or relates directly or indirectly to, any interactions or transactions of you with, or act or omission of you in relation to other Users, including Customers and Designers and Third Party Sites & Ads (excluding those directly due to ExLogo acts or the Services). This Section 4.2 does not apply to customers located in the EEA.
If you are a California resident, you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542 in connection with the foregoing, which states: “a general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”
In order to use the Service, you must register for an account with ExLogo (“Account”) and provide certain information about yourself as prompted by the Site registration form. You represent and warrant that: (a) all required registration information you submit is truthful and accurate; and (b) you will maintain the accuracy of such information. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you agree to provide ExLogo with identification documents (including copies of IDs, passports or drivers licenses) which ExLogo requests from you from time to time for the purposes of verifying your identity. You may delete your Account at any time, for any reason, by calling Customer Support at the contact number. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account login information and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your Account. You agree to immediately notify ExLogo of any unauthorized use, or suspected unauthorized use of your Account or any other breach of security which is based on your negligence. ExLogo cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements. Designers may not have more than one Account.
6. User Content.
6.1 Your User Content.
“User Content” means any and all information and content that a User submits to, or uses with, the Site or Services. User Content includes Logo Design Templates, and reviews and/or testimonials (“Reviews”). You are solely responsible for your User Content. You assume all risks associated with use of your User Content, including any reliance on its accuracy, completeness or usefulness by others, or any disclosure of your User Content that makes you or any third party personally identifiable. You hereby represent and warrant that your User Content does not violate the Acceptable Use Policy (defined below). You may not state or imply that your User Content is in any way provided, sponsored or endorsed by ExLogo. Because you alone are responsible for your User Content (and not ExLogo), you may expose yourself to liability if, for example, your User Content violates the Acceptable Use Policy. ExLogo is not obligated to remove any Logo Design Template from the Site unless required by applicable Law. ExLogo is not obligated to backup any User Content and User Content may be deleted at any time. You are solely responsible for creating backup copies of your User Content if you desire.
6.2 License to User Content.
You hereby grant, and you represent and warrant, that you have the right to grant, to ExLogo an irrevocable, nonexclusive, royalty-free and fully paid, worldwide license for all the duration of the intellectual property rights to reproduce, distribute, publicly display and perform, prepare derivative works of, incorporate into other works, and otherwise use your User Content, and to grant sublicenses of the foregoing, solely for the purposes of including your User Content in the Site and Services. You agree to irrevocably waive (and cause to be waived) any claims and assertions of moral rights or attribution with respect to your User Content (this sentence does not apply to customers located in the EEA). For the avoidance of doubt, Designer’s license or assignment of the Sold Design to Customer is set forth in the applicable Design Transfer Agreement.
7. Acceptable Use Policy.
The following sets forth ExLogo’ “Acceptable Use Policy”:

The Site and Services are provided “AS-IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” and we (and our suppliers) expressly disclaim any warranties and conditions of any kind, whether express or implied, including the warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, quiet enjoyment, accuracy, or non-infringement. We (and our suppliers) make no warranty that the Site or Services: (a) will meet your requirements; (b) will be available on an uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free basis; or (c) will be accurate, reliable, free of viruses or other harmful code, complete, legal, or safe. Some states do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the above exclusion may not apply to you.
The following Section applies to users in the EEA and Switzerland: ExLogo is liable for defects in accordance with the applicable statutory provisions. With regard to companies, the warranty period is limited to twelve (12) months. An additional warranty is only provided if this has been expressly agreed.**

In no event shall we (and our suppliers) be liable to you or any third party for any lost profit or any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, special or punitive damages arising from or relating to this Agreement or your use of, or inability to use, the Site or Services, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Access to, and use of, the Site and Services are at your own discretion and risk, and you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or loss of data resulting therefrom. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, our (and our suppliers’) liability to you for any damages arising from or related to this Agreement (for any cause whatsoever and regardless of the form of the action), will at all times be limited to the greater of (a) fifty us dollars ($50) or (b) amounts you have paid ExLogo in the prior 12 months (if any). The existence of more than one claim will not enlarge this limit. Some states do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental of consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you and you may also have other legal rights that vary from state to state.**
13.2 The following Section applies to users in Australia:
If the Australian Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth) (or analogous legislation) applies to this Agreement and permits the limitation of liability for breach of warranty implied by legislation, the liability of ExLogo is limited, at the option of ExLogo, to: (a) in the case of goods, any one or more of the following: (i) the replacement of the goods or the supply of equivalent goods; (ii) the repair of the goods; (iii) the payment of the cost of replacing the goods or of acquiring equivalent goods; or (iv) the payment of the cost of having the goods repaired; and (b) In the case of services: (i) the supplying of the services again; or (ii) the payment of the cost of having the services supplied again.

If ExLogo breaches its primary obligations through simple negligence, then its ensuing liability shall be limited to the amount which was foreseeable by ExLogo at the time the respective service was performed.
This Agreement (including pricing terms) is subject to occasional revision, and if we make any substantial changes, we may notify you by sending you an e-mail to the last e-mail address you provided to us (if any) and/or by prominently posting notice of the changes on our Site.

(i) Except for either party’s claims of infringement or misappropriation of the other party’s patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret, any and all disputes between you and ExLogo arising under or related in any way to this Agreement, must be resolved through binding arbitration as described in this section.

(ii) You agree that by entering into this agreement, you and ExLogo are each waiving the right to trial by jury or to participate in a class action. You and ExLogo agree that each may bring claims against the other only in your or its individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. Any arbitration will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. (iii) The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this section.

If the claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA rules, and the hearing (if any) must take place in your choice of the following locations: San Francisco, CA, Denver, CO, or New York, NY. The arbitrator’s ruling is binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.

14.3 Entire Agreement.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and us regarding the use of the Site and Services. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles in this Agreement are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. The word including means including without limitation. If any provision of this Agreement is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of this Agreement will be unimpaired and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law.
