to be fully responsible for all use of your account and for any actions that take place using your account.

In accessing and using various Site features, you may receive a password and account designation upon completing your profile or another registration process.  You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account.  You agree to (i) immediately notify DirectInk of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (ii) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session.  DirectInk cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from unauthorized use of your username and/or password.  Any fraudulent, abusive, or otherwise illegal activity may be grounds for termination of your account, at DirectInk’s sole discretion, and DirectInk may refer you to appropriate law enforcement agencies.

You also agree that DirectInk, its business partners, or their designees may disclose profile information or registration data to third parties if such disclosure is required by law or legal process.

This Agreement includes the terms and conditions of the DirectInk Privacy Statement, a copy of which is located at Privacy Policy and which is hereby incorporated by reference.  In the event that there exists any inconsistency between these Terms And Conditions and the Privacy Statement, the terms and conditions of the Privacy Statement shall take precedence.

TAXES

The purchase of a DirectInk shirt has two components – the amount you pay for the shirt, and the amount that is the donation to the fund.  Whether the donation amount is tax deductible as a charitable contribution depends upon the cause itself.  Some of the campaigns on our site are run by recognized 501(c)(3) organizations, but many are not.  If you have questions about the deductibility of the donation portion of your purchase, or a stand-alone donation made on our site, you will need to contact the fund’s creator and/or your tax advisor.

REWARDS

In certain campaigns, DirectInk and the fund creator may make available fundraising rewards at certain levels for the fund’s most successful fundraiser(s).  The option to include rewards or not, and what rewards to include at certain fundraising success levels is in the discretion of the fund’s creator.  If  DirectInk agrees to provide any or all of those rewards (as opposed to the fund creator doing it themselves), the cost of these rewards will be netted out of proceeds of the relevant fund according to a separate contract with the fund creator, and DirectInk will account and report to the fund’s creator about those costs.  Unless a fund’s creator has a separate contract with DirectInk, we will not source, ship, or otherwise help with a rewards program for your fund (Unless you consider our great t-shirts to be “rewards.”  Because t-shirts of course are what we are here to do.).

SHIP-TO-CREATOR OPTION

For fund creators who believe that most of their purchasers will be local to them, or otherwise want to take on the obligation of delivery of their shirts, they will be able to offer free shipping to their purchasers.  Where that option is chosen, we will ship all shirts to the fund creator and it is the fund creator’s responsibility to distribute these shirts to the purchasers that were given free shipping.

ACCOUNT TERMINATION

For Services that have account identifications and/or logins, DirectInk will, as warranted, terminate repeat infringers. If you believe that an account holder or subscriber is a repeat infringer, please follow the instructions above to contact our DMCA agent and provide information so that we can verify that the account holder or subscriber is a repeat violator.

You may not modify, copy, frame, rearrange, distribute or redistribute, reproduce, sell, publish, transmit, display or otherwise use any of the Content or any part of the Site, or remove or alter advertising, whether or not for payment or other consideration, without prior written permission from DirectInk.

In exchange for the access provided to the Content, you agree that you will not remove, obstruct, modify or otherwise interfere with the delivery or display of advertisements on the Site.

The Content includes logotypes, trademarks and service marks owned by DirectInk and by other information providers and third parties, none of which may be used in any manner unless approved, in advance and in writing, by DirectInk.
