Intellectual Property Rights of Wave Graphics and Third Parties
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 Wave Graphics 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. Wave Graphics retains the right to display such designs or offer them (or variations of such designs) to other customers.
Additionally, Wave Graphics 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 Wave Graphics production.
You agree to not use Wave Graphics’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.
Wave Graphics 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 Wave Graphics Service except that: (i) Wave Graphics 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) Wave Graphics may provide information about you and your order to its subcontractors; and (iii) Wave Graphics may share information about you with its marketing partners and affiliates for purposes of marketing Wave Graphics. Wave Graphics 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.
