  • 3. The Process of Creating Products

    3.1 Your Uploading of Images and Creation of Content
    The Service enables you to upload your Images onto Picanova's computers and create Content according to the Designs you choose. You agree that Picanova is not responsible for the quality of the Images you upload or your choices in creating the Designs. Not every Image is suitable for a canvas print or other individual print Products, and some Images are only suitable for canvas prints up to a certain size or in a certain format. Based on the DPI (Dots Per Inch) contained in your Image, the Website will recommend one or more formats for a Product, from which you may choose. You agree that you alone are responsible for making sure that the quality of the Image you are uploading is of high enough quality to be satisfactory to you at the size you select on the sign or product that you are purchasing and for your choice of format of your canvas print or other Product. Images are created and stored in a variety of ways and you agree that Picanova is not responsible for ensuring quality Images for any image file format available on the Website.


    3.2 Production of individual Products
    The Products are manufactured by electronically applying the Design and Content you have created interacting with a computer using the Service. You understand and agree that no employee, officer, owner, agent or authorized representative of Picanova is responsible for monitoring the Content and Design that you, or any other user, upload or create or the Products manufactured using the specifications you entered using the Service, neither while you are using the Service, nor after completing the purchase on the Website and during the production process of the Products. You agree that Products that are purchased will not be checked for content, spelling, grammatical or logical errors, aesthetic quality, color matching or any other factor that is within your Control (as defined below) through the use of the Website. You have opportunities during the purchasing process to check your purchase for layout, content and other specifications, and you agree that you have done so before making your purchase. "Control" means any part of a Product whose specifications are, or can be, provided by you, including but not limited to: color, font size, font type, font style, font color, position of text, position of graphics, color of graphics, quantity of text, quantity of graphics, spelling of text, use of text, size of graphics, justification of graphics, justification of images, or color of the background.


    3.3 Color Matching
    Picanova offers the Service and sells the Products through a Website viewable via computers connected to the Internet. You may view Picanova products solely through your computer screen or "monitor." Your monitor may be configured to display images and colors in a variety of ways. There is no true uniform standard to which all monitors conform. What may look one way on one monitor, will look different on another. Computers render images using light, whereas Picanova produces Products using pigments, which does not result in the same visual experience as viewing the images on your monitor. You agree that Picanova does not guarantee that the colors on the purchased Product will look the same as they appear on your monitor.


    3.4 Canvas Prints and Other Products
    We attempt to describe our Products offered as accurately as possible. However, we do not warrant that product descriptions or other content of the Website are 100% accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. You acknowledge that you have reviewed the Website and/or researched independently and that you understand what each of the Products sold on the Website is and what you are buying. Picanova only warrants that you will receive the materials advertised on the Website that you purchase. You agree that Picanova is not responsible for Products received that are made of materials thought by the purchaser to be something other than advertised on the Website. As an example, you agree Picanova is not responsible if the canvas print or other Product received by you is not what you envisioned that Product would be. You agree that all Products manufactured and sold by Picanova are for novelty purposes only and that Picanova does not claim that the Products are useful for any specific purposes, including commercial use, or that they comply with any legal requirements. You agree to review any applicable legal authority for the standards, rules and regulations governing the legality of using any of the Products purchased on the Website. If a Product you purchased is not to your liking you may return it in accordance with our Return and Refund Policy. See below at Paragraph 10.4.


    3.5 Discounted Products
    www.picanova.com or affiliate websites sometimes advertise discounted Products.

  • 20. CLASS-ACTION WAIVER AND AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATION

    PLEASE READ THIS PARAGRAPH CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS RIGHTS THAT YOU MAY OTHERWISE HAVE. IT PROVIDES FOR RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES THAT YOU AND WE MAY HAVE WITH EACH OTHER BY USING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, WHICH IS FINAL AND BINDING. IN INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY AND THERE IS LESS DISCOVERY AND POTENTIAL FOR APPELLATE REVIEW THAN IN COURT. THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE WILL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF THESE TERMS.ANY DISPUTE OR CLAIM MADE BY YOU AGAINST US ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS, THE SERVICE AND/OR YOUR PURCHASE AND/OR USE OF THE PRODUCT(S), REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DISPUTE OR CLAIM IS BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, PRODUCTS LIABILITY, STATUTE, FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY (TOGETHER, A “DISPUTE”) WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, AS DESCRIBED BELOW.

    Either you or we will have the right to elect to initiate binding arbitration to resolve any Dispute by providing the other party with written notice of such election. You and we each hereby agree, and agree in the further to take all steps required, to waive the right to litigate any Dispute in court, be it by way of court trial, jury trial or class action, and agree that: (1) such arbitration will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “Rules”), which are available here (https://adr.org/sites/default/files/Consumer%20Rules.pdf) or by calling +1-800-778-7879; (2) the arbitration will be conducted by one arbitrator appointed in accordance with the Rules; (3) the language of the arbitration will be English; (4) the arbitration will be conducted near the location where you reside; (5) we each hereby irrevocably consent and submit to exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue as such for the purposes of arbitrating any such action; (6) the arbitrator in such arbitration will be without jurisdiction to conduct a class arbitration or other representative proceeding, and may not consolidate one person’s claims with another; (7) all issues of enforceability of this arbitration provision, including, without limitation, issues relating to scope, validity, and unconscionability, will be decided by the arbitrator; (8) the entirety of any arbitration will be confidential, and neither you nor we will have any right to disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement of the arbitration award; (9) payment of all arbitrator compensation, expenses, and administrative fees (which include, without limitation, filing and hearing fees) will be governed by the Rules; (10) each of us will bear our own fees and costs related to any arbitration, including, without limitation, the expense of our respective counsel, experts, witnesses, and preparation and presentation of evidence at the arbitration; and (11) notwithstanding (9) and (10) above, the arbitrator will have the right to re-allocate his or her compensation, expenses and/or administrative fees, as well as your and our fees and costs related to the arbitration, if he or she determines that a claim, defense and/or counterclaim was filed for purposes of harassment or is patently frivolous.

    WHETHER IN INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION OR COURT, YOU AND WE EACH WAIVE THE RIGHT TO PROSECUTE OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, CONSOLIDATED ACTION, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. YOU AND WE MAY EACH SEEK RELIEF ONLY ON OUR OWN BEHALVES, AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO REMEDY INDIVIDUAL CLAIMS. THIS CLASS ACTION WAIVER IS A MATERIAL AND ESSENTIAL PART OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION.

    In the event that this arbitration provision is found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, a modified provision will be substituted that carries out as nearly as possible your and our original intent as evidenced solely by the language above, and the validity, legality and enforceability of any of the remaining provisions of these Terms will not in any way be affected or impaired thereby. If for any reason this arbitration provision is deemed inapplicable, invalid, illegal or unenforceable, you and we each hereby waive, to the fullest extent allowed by law, any right to a jury trial, any right to recover punitive or exemplary damages, and any right to pursue any claims on a class, collective, or consolidated basis or in a representative capacity.

    Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction.
