Your Content and Material

Any content and material submitted by you to RushOrderTees via the Sites, including, without limitation, photographs, videos, images, text, graphics and other material (collectively, "Designs") are subject to the terms and conditions of this Policy as incorporated in the User Agreement.  By using the Sites, you agree that everything you upload, store, or use on the Sites complies with this Policy and the User Agreement, and you accept liability for any Designs which do not comply with RushOrderTees’ Policy.

You will retain ownership of any submitted Designs.  You grant RushOrderTees a worldwide, non-exclusive, transferable, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable right and license, with right of sublicense through multiple tiers, to use, reproduce, distribute through multiple tiers, create derivative works of and publicly display, and archive, such Designs solely in connection with the production or provision of any product or service you request or to show you how your Designs would appear in and/or on RushOrderTees’ products or services.

For example, when you place an order for custom apparel or provide your Designs for sale on a physical product, RushOrderTees will prepare, manipulate (if necessary), and transmit the Designs for sale on merchandise, production, packaging, and shipment.  In addition, you grant a nonexclusive, worldwide, transferable, royalty-free, sublicensable right to use, reproduce, publicly display, sell, and distribute the Designs in advertising, marketing, samples, and promotional materials for the purpose of promoting the Sites and facilitating the sale of your product, in any media formats and through any media channels.  Without limitation, this promotion, marketing, or advertising may consist of: (i) display of your products; (ii) promotional "streams" of audio/video/photographic content on the Sites, (iii) Design placement in magazines, television shows, movies, and other media; and (iv) the promotion of the Sites through third-party feeds. 

You also grant each user of the Sites a non-exclusive license to access your Designs through the Sites, and to use, reproduce, distribute, and display such Designs as permitted through the functionality of the Sites, under this Policy, and under the User Agreement.

You represent and warrant that you own or otherwise possess all necessary rights with respect to use of the Designs, and that the Designs do not and will not:

  • Infringe, misappropriate, use, or disclose without authorization or otherwise violate any copyright, trademark, service mark, trade secret right, moral rights, or other intellectual property or other property right of any third party

You also represent that there are no outstanding disputes in connection with the property rights, intellectual property rights, or other rights in the Designs or any part of the Designs. 

RushOrderTees recommends that you read on our Sites: What You Need to Know About Copyright Before Designing a T-Shirt, which outlines in less legal terms what is protected by copyright and trademark and what you can and cannot do with content and material that you do not own or possess a license, consent, or authorization to use.

All Designs that you upload are automatically stored by RushOrderTees.  RushOrderTees does not review any of your content and material before you upload them to the Sites.  As such, uploading your Designs to the Sites does not mean that such Designs are in compliance with this Policy and Content Guidelines.  By uploading Designs to the Sites, you assume full responsibility for all such Designs and for compliance with this Policy.

You agree that any Designs submitted as part of an order for services may be reviewed for compliance with this Policy and Content Guidelines.  RushOrderTees may refuse to use any Designs and may suspend processing and shipping of any order relating to the Designs.  RushOrderTees and its designees reserve the right to demand confirmation from you in writing of all rights, authorizations, licenses, permissions, and consents owned or obtained by you (if any) with respect to any Designs you upload to or transmit through the Sites.  If you fail to provide RushOrderTees with satisfactory confirmation upon request, RushOrderTees reserves the right to remove or deny access to any or all of your Designs available via the Sites and to suspend or terminate your account.  In addition, you agree that RushOrderTees may disclose any Designs and the circumstances surrounding their submission and use to any third party in order to provide the requested services, enforce this Policy, or comply with any legal obligations or governmental requests.  

You consent to the use of your name, image, and likeness, and you have obtained the written consent, release, and/or permission of every identifiable individual who appears in any submitted Designs to use such individual's name, image, and likeness, for purposes of using and otherwise exploiting the Designs in the manner contemplated by this Policy, or, if any such identifiable individual is under the age of eighteen (18), you have obtained such written consent, release, and/or permission from such individual's parent or guardian (and you agree to provide RushOrderTees with a copy of any such consents, releases, and/or permissions upon RushOrderTees’ request).  

You agree to indemnify and hold RushOrderTees, our directors, officers, shareholders, employees, contractors, agents, representatives, affiliates, and third party users harmless from and against any and all claims, causes of action, liabilities, damages, losses, expenses, and costs (including, without limitation, attorneys' fees) that arise directly or indirectly out of or from:
