Users can purchase products via the Service using the payment methods identified on the mydoodle.com website. Pricing and other terms are as identified on the mydoodle.com website and as fixed at the time of order.
It is the customer's responsibility to ensure the product delivery address is correct. We take no responsibility for any product a customer does not receive because of errors in the delivery address given to us.
We do not warrant, endorse, make representations about or recommend any Content or art offered or provided by any member.
mydoodle.com may cancel an order in its sole discretion and at any stage, if the product ceases to be available, if there is a pricing or description error, if the Content is the subject of any dispute or procedure that may affect its use or if it is otherwise in breach of this User Agreement.
"credits" is mydoodle.com's way of letting you buy products on mydoodle.com with extra ease - no need to input payment details each time you make a purchase. Instead credits for items to the value of your credits input.
Aside from the convenience when you are buying, we may from time to time give you a discount on all card purchases when you use credits. The credits discount does not apply to products save as specified.
Your credits balance will be available to view on the "my balance" section of your account information or similarly displayed elsewhere from time to time.
We reserve the right to make available or withdraw credits at our discretion on notice. The amount and eligibility for bonuses is also at our discretion and subject to change from time to time - we will post such changes on the site.
When you go to pay for an order, you will be offered the option to use credits where you have a positive balance. If your balance is insufficient to pay for an order you will be given the opportunity to top up your credits (with any applicable minimum input required) or to pay the difference for that order on your payment card, or to pay the whole amount on your card. You will only earn your credits discount if you make the entire payment for the order via credits, not if it is a split payment between credits and a card transaction - this is because credits helps to minimise transaction processing costs which a split payment does not facilitate.
You must be logged in to mydoodle.com to use your credits account. Since your credits account can be accessed through your mydoodle.com account, it is important that you keep your log in details secure.
Your payments into credits are payments for goods and services to be ordered from us. You cannot withdraw sums put into your credits account. Our liability to you therefore is solely to providing goods and services to the value of your credits balance. This does not affect your statutory rights nor your rights to replacement goods or refunds according to our Cancellations, Returns and Refunds policy.
We may peridoically remind you of your credits balance. Credits must be used within 12 months of being purchased or otherwise received, after which it will expire.
The commissions you earn on mydoodle.com are eligible to use as credits on the site and you will see your overall balance comprised of your credits balance and your commissions earned (and cleared) balance.
Due to the nature of the print-on-demand and user-generated/personalised Content model, orders are non-cancellable and non-refundable save as where otherwise expressed. mydoodle.com provides a creator-controlled publishing tool for User-generated Content and the company cannot accept responsibility for the quality of the Content hosted and/or purchased (including misspelled words, grammatical errors, etc.), its formatting, design or overall appearance. The User approves the visual presentation and Content of each item and bears responsibility for its quality and presentation. mydoodle.com does not monitor or check individual Content prior to publication or printing.
Similarly, we cannot guarantee the quality, description or fitness for purpose of the Content provided by members on the Service.
If products arrive damaged, or are faulty, please notify us immediately (and no later than 14 days from receipt) together with a description of the damage or fault and if requested by us, a photo of the damaged / faulty products. We will produce and send a replacement copy of the product (at our cost) or a refund (at our discretion) and as your sole remedy. Please note that this policy does not apply to the Content (for reasons given in the preceding paragraph) but only to the underlying physical product (i.e. the paper used in the card, the binding of the book, the finishing of the canvas etc.). Refunds cannot be given if the fault is as a result of your own actions such as if there is a mis-spelling by you in the personalisation or if you have used an image of low resolution or size. Your statutory rights are not affected.
Delivery of products shall be mydoodle.com or its supplier's choice of postal/courier services and on such terms and at such pricing as agreed when the order was made and is variable by mydoodle.com in its sole discretion from time to time. Please see our Shipping and Delivery terms for further information on shipping and delivery options.
If your products do not arrive within 14 days of your order placement date, please contact us with details of your order via the contact form so that we can investigate. Subject to investigation, we will either produce and send a replacement copy of the product or a refund at our discretion.

mydoodle.com wants to unlock the creative spirit in everyone and to push the boundaries of creative expression! However, mydoodle.com respects all applicable laws relating to copyright, trademarks, design rights and other intellectual property rights. We ask that you do the same. Your designs must be your or your collaborators own original work or you must have all necessary permissions to use, publish or sell the same using the mydoodle.com licences for the purpose intended.
If you are using third party material, ensure that you have the rights to use the material for the purposes intended - if in doubt, ask the original material licensor and obtain permission in writing. Note: even "free use" photo-stock sites typically prevent further licensing for commercial use.
The law relating to copyright, design and other intellectual property infringement differs from country to country and is also covered by a number of international mutual enforcement treaties. mydoodle.com is not able to provide any guidance on whether your intended use and modification of an existing image or work of art is permitted under applicable law. If in doubt, please consult a qualified lawyer in the applicable jurisdiction.
Any Content that you believe is the result of an infringement of a User's rights by another or is otherwise alleged to be unathorised use shall be a matter between the Users or parties concerned. The nature of the Service as a user-generated platform precludes mydoodle.com being able to take any proactive stance on potential infringement.
If mydoodle.com is informed of any claim by any party regarding content you have uploaded and/or licensed to mydoodle.com for use on the site or in mydoodle.com products, mydoodle.com reserves the right to remove the content and to suspend or close your account and withhold any commissions, with no liability whatsoever to you or any other party.
If in doubt please do not upload or use Content in any manner not authorised by the Content owner.
If you are a rights holder and are concerned that you have found material on or used via our website, for which you have not given licence or permission, or which is not covered by a limitation or exception in national law, please contact us in writing stating the following:

You can browse our sites without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. If you choose to provide us with personal information, you consent to the transfer and storage of that information on our servers (currently located in the United States and Europe).
We may collect and store the following personal information:
We do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent. We may combine your information with information on other users and information we collect from other companies and use it to improve and personalise our services, Content and advertising. If you do not wish to receive marketing communications from us or participate in our marketing programs, simply indicate your preference via the "My Account" page in mydoodle.com or by following the directions provided with the applicable communication or advertisement.
Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customised experience. You agree that we may use your personal information to:
We may disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements, enforce our policies, respond to claims that a listing or other Content infringes the rights of others, or protect anyone's rights, property, or safety.
We may also share your personal information with:
Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy and our ability to keep the community free from those who attempt to carry out fraudulent or illegal activities on the site, we will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties without a court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss or to report suspected illegal activity.
Your username is displayed throughout mydoodle.com (and so available to the public) and is connected to all of your mydoodle activity. Where you have opted to join in the community and elect to have a public profile, other people can see your items for sale, profile page, shop fronts, feedback, ratings and associated comments (as per your notification settings).
In each case, mydoodle will use reasonable endeavours to inform you regarding the choices you make and activities you undertake on the site but you are also asked to apply common sense e.g. if commenting in a public forum, your response and username will be publicly connected with your comments.
Notices sent to other community members about suspicious activity and policy breaches on our sites refer to usernames and specific items. So, if you associate your name with your username, the people to whom you have revealed your name will be able to personally identify your mydoodle.com activities. If you are a business seller, your contact details (such as name and geographical address) may be visible on the View Item page, as you indicate in your business preferences on mydoodle.com. If you access our sites from a shared computer or a computer in an internet cafˇ, certain information about you, such as your username or reminders from mydoodle.com, may also be visible to other individuals who use the computer after you.
mydoodle enables you to share personal and financial information to complete transactions. We encourage you to disclose your privacy practices and respect the privacy of other users. We cannot guarantee the privacy or security of your information and therefore we encourage you to evaluate the privacy and security policies of your trading partner before entering into a transaction and choosing to share your information. To help protect your privacy, we allow only limited access to other users' contact, shipping and financial information to facilitate your transactions. When users are involved in a transaction, they may have access to each other's name, Username, email address and other contact and shipping information. In all cases, you must comply with data protection laws, and give other users a chance to remove themselves from your database and a chance to review what information you have collected about them.
You agree to use user information only for:
We use "cookies" (small files placed on your hard drive) on certain of our pages to help analyse our web page flow; customise our services, Content and advertising; measure promotional effectiveness, and promote trust and safety.
A few important things you should know about cookies are that:
We and our users do not tolerate spam. Make sure to set your mydoodle.com notification preferences so we communicate to you as you prefer. You are not licensed to add other mydoodle.com users, even a user who has purchased an item from you, to your mailing list (email or physical mail) without their express consent. Please report to us details of mydoodle-related spam or spoof emails to mydoodle.com. You may not use our communication tools to send spam or otherwise send Content that would breach our User Agreement. We automatically scan and may manually filter messages to check for spam, viruses, phishing attacks and other malicious activity or illegal or prohibited Content, but we do not permanently store messages sent through these tools.
Your password is the key to your account. Use unique numbers, letters and special characters, and do not disclose your mydoodle.com password to anyone. If you do share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken in the name of your account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately notify mydoodle.com and change your password.
You can see, review and change most of your personal information at "My account". Generally, we will not manually modify your personal information because it is very difficult to verify your identity remotely. You must promptly update your personal information if it changes or is inaccurate. Once you make a public posting, you may not be able to change or remove it. Upon your request to Customer Service, we will close your account and remove your personal information from view as soon as reasonably possible, based on your account activity and in accordance with applicable law. We do retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our mydoodle.com User Agreement, and take other actions otherwise permitted by law or the mydoodle.com User Agreement.
Your information is stored on our servers located in the United States and Europe. We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use lots of tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorised access and disclosure. However, as you probably know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the site. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.
You have the right to see personal data (as defined in the Data Protection Act) that we keep about you on receipt of a written request and payment of a fee.
