Generally, products created using images available on the site should not be resold commercially. In the event that you wish to resell such products, you agree to contact WeAreChange.org and verify the legality of reselling such products prior to doing so. Designs created using the text tools and images available through the site are in no way the exclusive property of the customers who assemble such designs. WeAreChange.org retains the right to display such designs or offer them (or variations of such designs) to other customers.
Additionally, WeAreChange.org has the sole discretion to reject any order that it considers libelous, defamatory, obscene, profane (according to standards established by the FCC), portraying irresponsible use of alcohol or other substances, advocating persecution based on gender, age, race, disability or national origin, containing explicit sexual content or is otherwise inappropriate for WeAreChange.org production.
You agree to not use WeAreChange.org’s Service to create any material that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortuous, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another’s privacy, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable, or that infringes on any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights of any third party.
WeAreChange recognizes that you have a right to privacy, and we will not give or sell anyone specific information about you or any orders you have placed through the WeAreChange Service except that: (i) WeAreChange may share information about you or an order that you have placed with a relevant Institution in order to allow such Institution to review the use of the Licensed Marks as necessary; (ii) WeAreChange may provide information about you and your order to its subcontractors; and (iii) WeAreChange may share information about you with its marketing partners and affiliates for purposes of marketing WeAreChange. WeAreChange employs third party cookies which are used to target customers for advertising purposes. WeAreChange collects information (including email addresses) that allows us, among other things, to: process and fill your order; contact you regarding the processing of your order; share your design with those whom you request; improve our website and service; and send informative and promotional emails that may be of interest to you. While this information may be used by us for marketing purposes, it is never shared or sold to other organizations for commercial purposes.
WeAreChange.org supports high standards for manufacturing labor conditions. Accordingly, we seek to work with suppliers who promote such standards within their operations. WeAreChange.org relies upon referrals, reputation and, in some cases, personal inspections to identify such vendors.
WeAreChange.org accepts online or telephone payment via credit card, debit card, or PayPal. All payments sent electronically are securely transmitted via PayPal.
WeAreChange.org also accepts payment via purchase order for qualified customers. Invoices may be paid by check or credit or debit card.
WeAreChange’s orders are generally delivered within 5-7 days. Customers who are concerned about meeting deadlines should contact a Service/Sales Representative.
WeAreChange.org goes to great lengths to ensure that all orders are filled accurately and on time and are of the highest quality. Accordingly, WeAreChange.org accepts returns and will refund payment if and when customers are disappointed by WeAreChange.org merchandise for one of the following reasons: (a) the blank items themselves are materially flawed; (b) the quality of the decorating (i.e., the printing or embroidery) is below a reasonable range of expectations; or (c) the design of the final product is materially different from the final design submitted by the customer.
