User Agreement & Policies
What this Agreement Covers
This Agreement governs your use of the Site and the People’s Choice Apparel’s service (the “Service”). The Service permits customers to design and purchase custom merchandise for their individual usage, and those who have an appropriate relationship either with: (i) institutions of higher learning, fraternal organizations, honor societies and other collegiate groups (collectively, “Institutions”); (ii) corporations and small businesses; (iii) elementary and secondary schools; or (iv) other organizations, to design and purchase custom merchandise properly describing that relationship. You understand that by using the Site and the Service, you have agreed to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and you agree to use the Site and the Service solely as provided in this Agreement.
The Service contained on the website represent a non-binding invitation for the customer to choose, alter, design and place an order with People’s Choice Apparel. By filling out and sending an order form on the internet, the customer makes a binding offer for a contract of sale or, as the case may be, a contract for work and materials. People’s Choice Apparel sends an order confirmation via e-mail to the customer. The order confirmation does not represent an acceptance of the offer, but shall only acknowledge to the customer that People’s Choice Apparel.com received his/her order. The contract is only accepted when People’s Choice Apparel ships the ordered product to the customer and confirms the shipment (shipment confirmation) to the customer in a second e-mail. People’s Choice Apparel reserves the right to reject any received orders for any reason with notice to the customer. The contract ends with the complete delivery to the customer supplied address through People’s Choice Apparel’s shipment provider. If there is an interruption of delivery, and People’s Choice Apparel fails to cover a congruent substitute transaction in a business reasonable timeframe, the customer shall be informed immediately about the non-availability of the service. If the case of the customer having already paid, then the funds paid shall be refunded.

Limit of People’s Choice Apparel’s Responsibility
People’s Choice Apparel will be responsible for acting only on those instructions sent to People’s choice Apparel that actually are received and does not assume responsibility for malfunctions in communications facilities not under its control that may affect the accuracy or timeliness of any orders you send. People’s Choice Apparel is not responsible for any losses or delays in transmission of orders arising out of the use of any Internet Access Service Provider or caused by any browser software or any computer virus or related problem that may be attributable to services provided by any Internet Access Service Provider. People’s Choice Apparel is not responsible should you give incorrect instructions or if your credit-card payment is not processed by your credit-card company.
The information and materials contained in this Site, including text, graphics, links or other items, are provided "as is", "as available". People’s Choice Apparel does not warrant the accuracy, adequacy or completeness of the information and materials on the Site and expressly disclaims liability for errors or omissions in this information and materials. No warranty of any kind, implied, express or statutory, including but not limited to the warranties of non-infringement of third party rights, title, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose or freedom from computer virus, is given in conjunction with the information and materials.
In no event will People’s Choice Apparel be liable for any damages, including without limitation, direct or indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages, losses or expenses arising in connection with this site or use thereof or inability to use by any party, or in connection with any failure of performance, error, omission, interruption, defect, delay in operation or transmission, computer virus or line or system failure, even if People’s Choice Apparel, or representatives thereof, are advised of the possibility of such damages, losses or expenses.
Information, drawings, figures, technical data, specifications of weight, measurements and services, which are contained in brochures, catalogues, newsletters, ads or price lists only are of an informational nature. People’s Choice Apparel will accept no responsibility for the correctness of this information. Regarding type and scope of delivery only the information shall be decisive which is contained in the order confirmation.
People’s Choice Apparel only bears responsibility for damages, no matter what the legal ground, in the case of deliberate action and gross negligence. People’s Choice Apparel’s liability is limited to the payment of the foreseeable, typically occurring damage. As far as liability of People’s Choice Apparel is excluded or limited in these general terms and conditions then the same applies for personal liability related to the order for damages on the part of employees, representatives and agents of People’s Choice Apparel.
When fulfilling the contract, we expressly reserve the right to deviate from the descriptions and information in our brochures, catalogues and other written and electronic documents with respect to material, color, weight, measurements, design or other features, as far as these can be considered reasonable for the customer. Reasonable cause for change may result from fluctuations customary in trade and technical production processes.
The product prices are finalized as the designs are completed. Sales taxes, shipping and handling are billed separately and shown separately on the invoice. The shipping address and order amount is decisive for location determination. The customer has to pay sales tax, shipping and handling, which may depend on order value and the delivery location. Purchase price, along with sales tax, shipping and handling charges are immediately payable, without deduction.
Payment will be carried out according to the customer’s choice of either direct debit, credit card, advance payment or other payment methods. People’s Choice Apparel reserves the right to limit the method of payment chosen by the customer depending on order value, shipment region or other objective criteria. In case of the method of payment chosen by the customer not being practicable, where People’s Choice Apparel has met its contractual obligations, in particular if it is the case that a direct debit from the customer’s account is not possible due to a lack of funds or provision of wrong information, then the customer shall reimburse any additional costs incurred by People’s Choice Apparel or a third party which carried out the transaction. People’s Choice Apparel is entitled to make use of the services of trustworthy third parties for the handling of the payment: a) If it comes to a default of payment of the customer, People’s Choice Apparel is allowed to assign its claims to a debt collection agency and transfer the personal data required for the handling of payments to these third parties; b) In the case of intervention of third parties in the handling of payments, then payment in relation to People’s Choice Apparel only counts as made if the amount has been provided contractually to the third party, so that the third party can dispose of it as it sees fit.
People’s Choice Apparel’s orders are generally available to deliver within 2 days. Delivery times and terms of delivery shall only be binding insofar as People’s Choice Apparel has expressly agreed to such in writing. Typical, delivery times are 2-4 days, but can take up to 2-3 weeks in certain circumstances. Delivery is available to the United States.
Delivery shall be conducted by a shipment service provider chosen by People’s Choice Apparel. The customer has to pay standard shipping costs, which may depend on order value, and where the order is shipped.
People’s Choice Apparel goes to great lengths to ensure that all orders are filled accurately and on time and are of the highest quality. Accordingly, People’s Choice Apparel accepts returns and will refund payment if and when customers are disappointed by People’s Choice Apparel’s 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 embellishment) 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.
People’s Choice Apparel uses personal data of the customer for appropriate purposes and according to statutory regulations. The personal data given (i.e. name, e-mail address, mailing address, bank details) for ordering products are used by People’s Choice Apparel for fulfillment and handling of the contract. This data is treated confidentially by People’s Choice Apparel and is not given to any third parties who are not part of the ordering, delivery and payment procedures. The customer shall be entitled to access information on the personal data which People’s Choice Apparel has saved about them free of charge. Moreover, they are entitled to the correction of incorrect data, and the blocking and deletion of their personal data, insofar as there is no legal obligation to retain such data.
In addition, People’s Choice Apparel may share information about you or your order if we believe in good faith that disclosure of specific information is necessary to (a) resolve disputes, investigate problems, or enforce our User Agreement; (b) comply with relevant laws or respond to requests from law enforcement or other government officials relating to investigations or alleged illegal activity (in which case we can, and you authorize us to, disclose personal information without subpoenas or warrants served on us); or (c) protect and defend our rights or property or the rights and property of you or third parties.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold People’s Choice Apparel and its affiliates harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising from or relating to your use of People’s Choice Apparel’s Site and the Service, your violation of this Agreement, or your violation of any rights of another.
