9. T-SHIRT CARE
You will be glad to know that we run long term tests on our t-shirts in order to monitor their quality. Like with all things there are some do's and don'ts when it comes to cleaning (after all you wouldn't wash your car using sandpaper, would you?). We strongly advise you wash and iron your t-shirt as follows:
1. Wash your t-shirt at a maximum temperature of 30 degrees Celsius / 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Do not use bleach or any substance which has a bleaching agent in it.
3. Do not tumble dry your t-shirt.
4. Do not dry clean your t-shirt.
5. Iron your t-shirt at a medium temperature.
6. Do not iron directly onto the design but you may iron on the back of the t-shirt, i.e. so that there are two layers of cotton between the iron and the design, at a medium temperature in order to iron out any wrinkles in the design which may occur during a wash cycle.
Please follow this advice as we cannot be held responsible for the quality of the t-shirt or the design if this advice is not followed.
10. TECHNICAL AND PRODUCTION DISCREPANCIES
In fulfilling the contract, Vintage Pig Ltd holds the right to have minor deviations as related to the descriptions found in our brochures, catalogues, and any other written and electronic documents regarding the characteristics of the material, the colour, weight, measurements, manufacturing or similar properties as far as they reasonably match the expectations of the customer.
11. CUSTOMIZER SPECIFIC
11.1.1 In the case of a customer uploading his own design or personalizing any Goods, the client assures Vintage Pig Ltd that he possesses the right to duplicate and distribute this design. The customer will solely bear the responsibility for any violation of copyright or trademark. The client shall ensure also that in personalizing the Goods, no other legal rights of any third-parties are infringed.
11.1.2 If a customer finds a defect included in the seller's warranties, the customer has the right to request a new fulfillment of the contract, a cancellation of the contract, or a reduction in the sales price.
11.1.3 In the case of a return shipment due to damages or quality defects, Vintage Pig Ltd will pay all shipping costs. The customer is required to use a shipping method that does not include unnecessary shipping costs. Either the shipping costs will be reimbursed after the fact or will be transferred in advance as requested by the customer.
11.1.4 The customer has a claim to this guarantee of Goods. If the customer is a business, it is incumbent on the business to immediately check the Goods and contact Vintage Pig Ltd if there are any problems with the Goods. So long that the business does not contact Vintage Pig Ltd, the goods are considered checked and without problems.
11.1.5 The period of guarantee claims for shipped wares is two year from the date the Goods were received for customers. For business partners, this period is one year.
11.2 Intellectual Property Rights for Print Designs, Exemption from Liability
11.2.1 When the customer designs any Goods, either with an uploaded design or any other means (text personalization), the customer thereby assures Vintage Pig Ltd that the designed Goods do not violate any third party rights. Any authorship, personal and/or name usage violations are the full responsibility of the customer. The customer also insures that by customising the product no additional third-party rights are violated.
11.2.2 The customer will on first request fully indemnify Vintage Pig Ltd from all costs. Claims, demands losses, expenses and requirements generated by the violation of such third-party rights.
