Conditions of Sale/Terms and Use Agreement
What if I am not satisfied with my order? The MyCorwin Three Day Guarantee of Satisfaction:
You must let us know within three (3) business days of receipt if there is an issue with your order.
Corwin stands behind the timeliness and quality of its products and services. If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase from us (your fault or ours), simply contact our customer service department within three (3) business days from the date you receive it (or the date it was scheduled to arrive) and we will reprint your calendar(s) and/or newsletter(s) immediately. All jobs will be shipped UPS Ground unless you prefer and pay for overnight shipping. All overnight shipping is billed directly to client’s shipper account.
If the error was not made at Corwin and you need your job reprinted, contact our customer service department and you will be instructed on the best method to have your job redone. At your written request, Corwin will reprint your job immediately at a reduced price and ship it immediately. On your invoice, you will see your regular prices for your ordered products PLUS the reduced price for reprinting your job(s).
For errors made by Corwin, we will need the entire order sent back to Corwin in its original packaging via UPS – otherwise shipping and processing fees will be charged to your account. While your package is being returned to Corwin, in good faith, we will reprint your job and ship it immediately while we await your returned package. Upon arrival of your returned package, we will reprint the product(s) in question, excluding shipping and processing costs. Please note: if you receive a box of calendars and/or newsletters and a tube of oversize calendar posters and only one item is incorrect, only return the box of incorrect items (i.e.: box of calendars are correct but the oversize calendar posters is the wrong size – send back only the oversize calendar poster tube).
For jobs damaged during shipping, the original package and all of it’s contents must be saved at your facility for our shipper to pick it up. Contact our customer service department immediately, or within three (3) business days, and let us know the severity of the damage. We will file a claim with our shipper so Corwin gets proper credit for the damaged package and reprinting your job(s). We will reprint your damaged order and ship it overnight at no expense to you. IMPORTANT! You must save the damaged package until the shipper picks it up for proper credit – otherwise, you will be charged for a complete order plus overnight shipping (if applicable).
Corwin takes great pride in its commitment to customer satisfaction. However, certain circumstances are beyond our control and are not covered by the guarantee. Please note that we cannot be responsible for:
• Spelling, punctuation or grammatical errors made by the customer.
• Verbal corrections given to Corwin by the customer.
• Errors in user-selected options such as choice of paper color, poster size, quantity or product type.
• Damage to the products arising after delivery to the customer.
• Products missing after proof of delivery by shipping provider.
Please preview your designs carefully and correct any mistakes prior to placing your order. In an effort to keep costs down and pass substantial savings along to our customers, Corwin nor Corwin Design & Graphics Corporation does not proof documents created by its customers prior to processing.
The plain and simple things: A thought about Copyright Infringement (The Hall of Shame)
READ THIS BEFORE YOU CONSIDER TAKING ARTWORK FROM CORWIN TO YOUR LOCAL COPY CENTER:
Under copyright law and the method in which Corwin will legally enforce it, you cannot utilize an outside service to duplicate your calendar or enlarge it to poster size. You are able to make your own 8.5 x 11 or 11 x 17 copies inside your facility on your facility copy machine. Use of any outside copy service for copies or posters is copyright infringement.
Corwin maintains a high quality service that we must provide for our clients. Our intention is that all of our clients have their artwork printed by Corwin so that all steps in maintaining the highest quality are taken. We copyright our templates because we created them for the sole purpose of providing a high-end activity calendar for the activity profession. When our artwork is printed by another service, our name is on every calendar which may not live up to our high printing standards. Our legal department works diligently to copyright our templates and will go to the fullest extend of the law to crack down on people who copy our artwork outside the facility level.
If you wish to purchase your calendar and own the entire artwork, including the templates created by Corwin, there is a fee of $75.00 that will be billed monthly to your account and the copyright indicia will be removed from your calendar. The condition in which you can use that artwork is restricted to making copies or enlargements at your local copy center – you do not own the template.
Did you know that there are actually companies who are thinking of using our artwork, templates and other content on MyCorwin.com, MyCorwinCalendar.com, MyCorwinOnline.com, and other Corwin Design & Graphics Corporation’s subsidiaries without our permission? We sincerely hope you’re not one of them, but if you are thinking of copying our artwork, templates or other content and using them, or “sharing” your subscription with another, or reprinting them in your print publication without permission…we encourage you to please think again.
Much time, effort and research goes into creating our site and once published, our site and every single calendar template, artwork, and navigational tools, articles, etc. that has been created by us, is protected by Copyright Law. There are many people who aren’t familiar with Internet Copyright Law – then there are those who are familiar with it, and just choose to ignore it. Please do not reproduce our copyrighted information, or reprint them in any other media without permission. If you have reproduced any of our calendars or copied any of our copyrighted works, you will eventually be found, and appropriate procedures will be followed to the fullest extent of the law. We respond to each and every incident of copyright infringement and report them as such. If a satisfactory solution is not reached within one month’s time, we reserve the right to list your infringement here, along with your domain and link to the infringing page. Copyright infringement is against the law — we thank you for respecting and supporting Internet Copyright Law, and the original works of website owners.
Please help us by reporting a copyright incident.
We are not responsible for lost or mis-directed e-mails. If our mail server is down or your mail program rejects mail from us, we have no way of knowing that you sent an email or you did not receive our email to you. Please check all spam settings on your e-mail client and insure that you are open to receiving mail from us. In the event our hosting server has a problem and is down and e-mails are lost, we cannot accept responsibility. Please be sure your email address is put in the shopping cart accurately. If your email address bounces from the shopping cart, we cannot fill your order and will not be able to contact you.
There are times that our production takes place late at night which does not lend to calling customers. E-mail is our preferred source of communication.
Our goal is to produce your calendar and have it delivered to you on or before the first of the month. All orders are produced in the order they were received. Most items produced at our facility are printed and shipped within seven (7) business days, not including holidays or weekends; however, this is an estimate and may take longer especially during heavy volume time, Holidays, Weather conditions that may prevent us from working (i.e.: tropical storms and hurricanes), etc.. Any custom design requests may take longer.
If you need your order by the end of the month, we strongly recommend that you place your order in its entirety by the 15th of the month. If you need your order by a certain date that is before the end of the month, please make sure to tell us and we will make every effort to meet your deadline!
Your order will be shipped via UPS Ground service and billed to your Corwin account unless overnight service is requested and paid for by your facility. You will be required to send us your preferred shipper of choice and account number to be billed directly to your account with that shipper. We will prepare and ship your order with your requested shipper. A nominal handling fee will be added to your order for boxing, taping and calling for pick up of your order with your appropriate shipper. Incomplete or inaccurate shipper account numbers will delay your shipment. Corwin is not responsible for verifying the accuracy of your shipper account number and any order billed to Corwin’s shipping accounts with FedEx, DHL and UPS Overnight because of client error (inactive, on hold or wrong shipper account number) will be billed and due immediately by the client and any future orders with the same expectation of overnight delivery must be corrected with an accurate account number. Corwin has the right to refuse overnight delivery charges on our account which will delay your order. Please double check your account number and status with your shipper before placing your order with Corwin.
Communication & Changes to your order
It is important that you check your e-mail on a regular basis. We may send questions pertaining to your order and a delay in your response to us is a delay in production of your order. If you would like to make additional changes to your order after it has been submitted, contact Corwin via email to determine if it has been produced. If it has not been produced, Corwin will release your order back to you to edit. IMPORTANT: IF YOUR ORDER IS CANCELLED AT CORWIN SO YOU CAN EDIT YOUR CALENDAR – WE DO NOT HAVE THAT ORDER UNTIL YOU RESEND IT TO US – IN ITS ENTIRETY. Do not send partial orders. We prefer all correspondence be made via e-mail so there is a record for review and less errors happen that way. However, please try to keep your emails precise and to a minimum. We request you attempt to give the most accurate info during the order process
