of the Terms of Service which governs your use of Signs on the Cheap services and
your use of the Signs on the Cheap Web Site. If any portion of the Terms of Sale
is found to contradict, violate or run contrary to the Terms of Service, the Terms
of Service will govern and will be the binding document with regards to that portion.
The Terms of Sale is meant to provide general information regarding policies surrounding
purchases from the Signs on the Cheap Web Site. The Terms of Service is hereby incorporated
by reference into this document and thus by agreeing to comply with the Terms of
Sale you again agree to comply with the Terms of Service.
2) Content of Your Purchase
The primary value of the Signs on the Cheap Website (Web Site) is the ability for
users and potential purchasers ("Users") to create signs and graphics that display
any content they choose. This is done by means of computer interaction alone between
the Users and the Web Site.
As such, you agree that no Signs on the Cheap employee, employer, officer, owner,
agent or authorized representative is responsible for monitoring the content of
the signs or graphics created or uploaded by Users, neither while on the website,
nor after purchase and during the production process.
You agree that signs that are purchased will not be checked for content, spelling
errors, grammatical errors, logical errors, aesthetic quality, color matching or
any other factor that is within the User's Realm of Control through the use of the
tool on the Web Site. You, as a User, have many opportunities during the purchasing
process to check your purchase for layout and content and agree that you have done
"Realm of Control" refers to any part of a sign that is editable by the User. 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.
While Signs on the Cheap does not review the content of your sign or product, you
still agree to be bound by the restrictions as laid out in the Terms of Service,
and should it come to the attention of Signs on the Cheap that you have violated
the Terms of Service or this Terms of Sale, you agree that Signs on the Cheap will
send you notice of cancellation and your order will be canceled. You further agree
that the purchase price of your order, less any cost incurred during the processing
of your order and its cancellation, will be returned by signed check through the
United States Postal Service, postmarked within 30 days of your receipt of notice
You also agree that the content of your sign or product does not contain any content
that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, vulgar, harassing, defamatory,
obscene, pornographic, indecent, inflammatory, libelous, tortious, hateful, or racially,
ethnically or otherwise objectionable, or invasive of another's rights including
but not limited to rights of celebrity, privacy and intellectual property, as provided
in Paragraph 7.2 of the Terms of Service.
3) Color Matching
Signs on the Cheap sells its products through an E-Commerce Web Site viewable by
computers connected to the Internet. These computers may view Signs on the Cheap
products solely through their computer screens ("Monitors"). Monitors may be configured
to display images and colors in a variety of ways, both through the use of hardware
setup and software setup. There are many possible settings for Monitors and there
is no true uniform standard to which all Monitors conform. What may look one way
on one monitor, will look different on another.
Further, computer monitors display images with light and use a standard known as
RGB to do so. Signs on the Cheap produces products in a variety of ways (CMYK, PMS,
and others) that do not use light.
As such, you agree that Signs on the Cheap does not guarantee that the colors as
they appear on the screen will look the same as the colors as they appear on the
purchased product. Signs on the Cheap works hard to make the colors on the screen
be as true as possible to the printed colors, however, the differences in Monitors
and the differences between light and pigment make it impossible to guarantee matching
colors for all Users.
Signs on the Cheap sells products made out of several different types of materials:
Corrugated Plastic and Aluminum (040 Aluminum).
You agree that you have read our website and/or researched independently and that
you know what each of these materials is and what you are buying. Signs on the Cheap
only guarantees that you will receive the materials advertised on the Web Site that
you purchase. You agree that Signs on the Cheap is not responsible for products
received that are made of materials thought by the purchaser to be something other
than advertised on the Web Site.
As an example, you agree Signs on the Cheap is not responsible if the Corrugated
Plastic received by the purchaser is not what the purchaser envisioned Corrugated
Plastic would be.
You agree that all products produced and sold by Signs on the Cheap are for novelty
purposes only. Signs on the Cheap does not make any claims about the legal compliance
or registration of signs or any other products sold by Signs on
the Cheap or by a Signs on the Cheap affiliate. You agree to check with any applicable
legal authority for the standards, rules and regulations governing the types of
signs or other products permitted for your particular use.
5) Uploaded Images
Signs on the Cheap permits users to upload images onto their signs and products
through the Signs on the Cheap Web Site. You agree that Signs on the Cheap is not
responsible for the quality of the images you upload. The Signs on the Cheap Web
Site attempts to make a "best guess" as to the best viewing distance of your image
based on the internally stored DPI (Dots Per Inch) contained in the image file.
The Web Site assumes that 100 DPI is best viewed from 3.5 feet and tries to make
a best distance estimate based on that assumption.
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.
Images are created and stored in a variety of ways and you agree that Signs on the
Cheap is not responsible for ensuring quality images for any image file format available
on the Web Site.
6) Clip Art
Signs on the Cheap offers a broad range of clip art available on the Web Site for
use with your signs and products. You agree that this clip art is for novelty purposes
only and are not meant to be taken as official symbols, art or graphics. You also
agree that with the exception of the Realtor(R) clip art, none of the clip art has
been approved through official organizations or groups.
7) Production Time
Signs on the Cheap works hard to ensure that orders will be produced and exit the
Signs on the Cheap facility within three business days from the date of order. The
date of order is the calendar date of order if the order is placed before 6:00pm
Central Standard Time and the next business day after the calendar date of order
if the order is placed between 6:00pm and 11:59pm Central Standard Time.
This means that a purchase made at 3:00pm Monday, will be shipped out on Thursday
of the same week. This production time is not guaranteed and is limited in many
ways as discussed in the Shipping Policy.
You agree that Signs on the Cheap will take at least 3 business days to produce
your order and that it may take longer than 3 business days as laid out in the Shipping
Policy. The Shipping Policy is hereby incorporated by reference. Moreover, you agree
that our shipping time frame may depend on your response time to our inquiries regarding
your order. Title to your purchased goods shall pass to you at the time Signs on
the Cheap deposits such purchased goods with its designated shipper.
8) Return and Refund Policy
You agree that Signs on the Cheap guarantees the products it sells are free
from manufacturing defects and as such will be good for 90 days after purchase of
the product. If the product fails or breaks due to a manufacturing defect during
that time, you agree to take a photograph of the failed or broken product and send
the photograph or the original failed or broken product to Signs on the Cheap. Upon
receipt of the product or the photograph, Signs on the Cheap will send a replacement
of the product or will issue Signs on the Cheap credit for the purchase value of
the failed or broken product(s). Signs on the Cheap credit can be used on the Signs
on the Cheap website for any purchase.
Signs on the Cheap does not guarantee or warrant that its products will work
for any intended purpose or in any set of conditions. You agree that the determination
of whether a products failure or breakage is due to a manufacturing defect is within
the sole discretion of Signs on the Cheap. You further agree to provide full and
complete information regarding the circumstances of the failure or breakage, including
but not limited to the use of the product, the conditions the product was in, and
any other information useful to an informed determination by Signs on the Cheap
as to the cause of the failure or breakage.
9) Changes to Your Order
Signs on the Cheap provides many opportunities to review, revise and cancel the
order process before actually placing your order. Signs on the Cheap is able to
offer its products at the present prices due to the efficiency of allowing the customer
to create and modify their own products.
You agree that Signs on the Cheap is not responsible for reviewing, revising or
canceling orders, products or images once an order has been placed. A Signs on the
Cheap employee, employer, officer, owner or authorized agent may revise or cancel
an order but is not required or obligated to do so.
You agree that you have reviewed your order and that no further additions, corrections
or changes need to be made and that your order is final as is.
10) Alterations to 4'x8' Corrugated Plastic
One of Signs on the Cheap's goals is to provide you with the quality products at
the lowest delivered cost possible. To that end, we may make modifications to some
products in order to reduce the cost to our customers. For instance, a 4'x8' board
cannot be shipped at ground shipping rates; it must ship freight which is far more
expensive for smaller orders than ground. To enable orders of 1-12 4'x8' corrugated
plastic signs to ship at ground shipping rates, we may slit the back of the boards
in two places so that it folds to a third of its width. Once delivered, the boards
can be easily unfolded to their original 4'x8' width. If you do not approve such
alterations, you must contact us within 24 hours to notify us of your objection,
in which case you will be charged the difference between ground and freight shipping.
11) Dispute Resolution.
All disputes arising out of, relating to or connected with these Terms of Sale or
your use of any part of the SignsOnTheCheap.com Service will be exclusively resolved
under confidential binding arbitration held in Travis County, Texas before and in
accordance with the Rules of the American Arbitration Association, by a sole arbitrator
applying Texas law (without regard for conflicts of law principles). The arbitrator's
award will be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent
jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration
under these Terms of Sale will be joined to an arbitration involving any other party
subject to these Terms of Sale, whether through class arbitration proceedings or
otherwise. Any action to enforce an arbitrator's award will be brought in a federal
or state court located in Travis County, Texas. Each party hereby irrevocably submits
to the personal jurisdiction of the Federal and Texas State courts in Travis County.
By entering into these Terms of Sale, you hereby irrevocably waive any right you
may have to join claims with those of others in the form of a class action or similar
procedural device. Any claim arising out of, relating to or connected with these
Terms of Sale or your use of any part of the SignsOnTheCheap.com Service must
be asserted individually. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section,
Signs on the Cheap may seek equitable relief, including, without limitation, injunctive
relief and specific performance, without the requirement of posting a bond or other
security or proving money damages are insufficient, from a court of competent jurisdiction.
