LogoGround has a system of ranking levels, scores, badges and similar identifiers/indicators which are awarded to designers for specific achievements, based on criteria that we determine. While these identifiers/indicators can provide insight into a designer's track record on LogoGround and the designer's abilities, they do not constitute an endorsement by LogoGround. They reflect the designer's past performance only and should not be interpreted as a guarantee of future performance.

Additional design work includes but is not limited to changes to a logo after the final logo files have been delivered to the client, design work related to a finalized logo project, custom logo development, custom logos where the client selects one or more pre-designed logos as reference etc., where the client requests such design work from LogoGround directly.

We retain the right to, at any time and without notice, delete or alter the title, keywords and description of any logo in order to correct errors and/or to bring it into line with LogoGround rules.

We retain the right to, at any time and without notice, change any designer account from Active mode to Passive mode if we deem such a change necessary to fulfill our obligations under this agreement.

4. Legal Relationships and Obligations

4.1 LogoGround is a venue for logo designers to sell their original work.

4.2 We may use LogoGround ourselves to buy and sell logos under the account name "LG Staff". Furthermore, LogoGround staff may participate in their private capacities. The LG Staff account and LogoGround staff accounts shall function as normal User accounts and receive no preferential treatment.

4.3 When a sale occurs, the Designer is obligated to deliver the logo in at least EPS and JPG format. The designer is obligated to make changes to the logo if required by the Buyer and to supply the logo in additional file formats where appropriate. Failure to comply may, at our sole discretion, lead to the project being re-assigned to a LogoGround staff designer.

4.4 The Designer is solely responsible for delivering the purchased logo to the client and for insuring that the client can access, open and use the logo files. If it becomes necessary for LogoGround to perform any design actions or any support actions where the support request is directed at the designer, the project will be re-assigned to a LogoGround staff designer.

4.5 Designers agree to our standard one (1) business-day (Monday thru Friday) turnaround time for changes to a logo. The same turnaround time applies to the delivery of final logo files once a buyer accepts/approves a logo. If a Designer (at any point) fails to adhere to this turnaround time LogoGround will have the option to re-assign the project to a LogoGround staff designer.

4.6 Designers agree to behave in a professional manner in all their dealings with LogoGround, with other Designers and with Clients. We reserve the right to suspend any User's account for unprofessional conduct. If a Designer (at any point and in our sole discretion) displays unprofessional conduct when dealing with a Client, LogoGround will have the option to re-assign the project to a LogoGround staff designer. For the purpose of this agreement, Designers agree that professional conduct towards a Client shall include, but not be limited to refraining from the use of foul language and name calling anywhere on the Site, being sufficiently familiar with basic design processes and the basic functioning of the Site to ensure the revisions process is completed without delays, advising the Client to the best of their ability, not delaying or sabotaging a project in any way for any reason, refraining from arguing with the Client wherever possible and doing their utmost to resolve conflict speedily and to the satisfaction of the Client.

4.7 LogoGround is an English medium web site. Designers acknowledge that a basic proficiency in the English language is a requirement for the successful completion of any design project and that LogoGround has the right and the obligation to re-assign a project to a LogoGround staff designer should it, at any point in the life of a project and in its sole discretion, feel that a Designer's inability to communicate effectively in English is producing a poor experience for the Buyer.

4.8 If you buy a logo, you agree to complete any changes to the logo within thirty (30) days of the sale. Changes requested after this deadline may incur additional charges. Furthermore, clients agree that any design work requested post logo finalization may incur additional charges. These charges shall be at the discretion of the designer and must be agreed with the client before the commencement of the design work.

4.9 Each member is fully and solely responsible for satisfying all tax, governmental reporting and any other legal requirements in their own countries/jurisdictions.

4.10 No agency, employee-employer relationship, joint venture, franchise or partnership is intended or created by this Agreement.

4.11 You hereby agree that you are solely responsible for any content that you upload to the Site and any consequences of uploading such content. By uploading logo designs or any other content to the Site you affirm, represent and/or warrant that you are legally entitled to share and sell such content. LogoGround will, at the first offence, have the right to close your account, delete all your work from our Site and/or databases, confiscate any funds in your account and permanently block you from selling logo designs at the Site, should you be found to, at the sole discretion of LogoGround, offer for sale any material that you are not legally entitled to sell. LogoGround will have the option to limit an account while investigating a complaint against the account, typically to give the designer an opportunity to respond to the complaint. Limited accounts cannot add new logos or receive payments. If a limited account generates sales, the designer will forfeit the money from those sales in the event that the limited account is closed following the investigation.

4.12 When a logo is sold or when client feedback is received LogoGround will email an automated notification to the designer. The email address on file at LogoGround will be used for this purpose. LogoGround may choose to send follow-up emails to non-responsive designers, but will not be obligated to do so. LogoGround cannot and does not guarantee that any emails will be sent, received or delivered successfully. Designers are advised to sign into their LogoGround accounts daily to view their sales and respond to their clients as needed. Reliance on email notifications from LogoGround will be at the Designer's own risk.

4.13 LogoGround allows Users to pause their accounts for up to thirty (30) days. The pause feature will hide User submitted logos from potential Clients. LogoGround has the option, but not the obligation, to automatically or manually "un-pause" any account that has been paused for more than thirty days. LogoGround is not required to notify designers when an account is un-paused. Designers who wish to maintain a paused account for more than 30 days may do so by logging in every 30 days, un-pausing and then re-pausing the account.

4.14 LogoGround requires that Designers supply their real name and surname for the purpose of copyright transfer in the event of a sale. LogoGround has the option to request that Users verify their information by submitting identifying documentation as determined by LogoGround. Failure to supply a real name and surname or failure to provide satisfactory identifying documentation when requested may result in account suspension, delays in payment and/or the removal of the Designer's logos from the Site.

4.15 In the event of a sale, LogoGround requires that the Designer applies changes to the design according to the instructions of the Client. It is agreed that these changes shall not include full customization. Changes to the text, font, colors and layout are included. The client may also ask for minor changes to the logo image itself, such as changing a letter, adding a circle around the design, removing design elements etc. The designer is required to make these changes to the design as part of their obligation to the Client under this Agreement. When a Client requests changes beyond minor customization, the Designer may refer the matter to LogoGround who, in its sole discretion, will determine if the changes qualify as minor customization and notify the Designer and the Client of its decision. If the changes qualify as minor customization the Designer will be required to apply the changes.

4.16 LogoGround offers a feature that allows prospective clients to contact designers through the site. This feature is disabled by default. Designers who elect to enable the contact feature acknowledge that this may result in an increase in unwanted emails, including "spam" and potentially harmful content. LogoGround does not actively monitor or filter messages sent through this feature and will not be held accountable for loss or damage suffered as a result of the use of this feature. Designers who elect to be contactable through LogoGround do so at their own risk.

4.17 Logos purchased from LogoGround may be used for any purpose and may be resold on LogoGround, directly to a client or through any other service. However, if a logo purchased from LogoGround is presented to a client, entered in a logo contest or logo competition or in another way presented to a third party for approval you (1) agree to properly attribute the logo to the designer who created the logo and you (2) agree that LogoGround will be under no obligation to issue a refund to you in the event that the logo is not accepted by the client or other third party or it is not the winning entry in the logo contest/competition, even if all other conditions for the refund has been met. You further agree that the authorship of the logo does not transfer to you.

4.18 If you purchase a logo from LogoGround.com you agree to the terms of the refund policy in full, as linked to from this document in the Supporting Documents section. LogoGround will be under no obligation to issue a refund unless all refund conditions are met. Specifically, once a logo revision (preview of the logo posted by the designer/seller) is accepted or approved, a refund is no longer possible. This limitation is designed to protect designers against fraud and explicitly also applies if the vector source file(s) were not downloaded by the buyer. Furthermore, ordering the logo "as is" (without changes) indicates a request for delivery of the vector source file(s) without changes, thereby eliminating the possibility of a refund. By accepting/approving the logo preview or by ordering a logo "as is", you expressly agree that the contract is fulfilled with immediate effect and you expressly waive any right to a withdrawal period.

4.19 LogoGround will normally save and create backups of files uploaded to the Site, namely the JPG, EPS, SVG and final ZIP files, but it will not be required to do so. Users acknowledge that it is their responsibility to maintain local copies and local backups of files posted to LogoGround and files downloaded from LogoGround and that access to files on LogoGround is not guaranteed. Clients acknowledge that LogoGround cannot guarantee access to the final ZIP files indefinitely and that it will at intervals remove old projects and files associated with them. Designers are advised that files in excess of 1MB will typically not be retained on the server for long periods and it is important that designers maintain local copies and backups. Clients are advised that the final ZIP file will typically be available for download for a period of three months, but that this period may be significantly shorter in the case of large ZIP files. Once a ZIP file has deleted from the server the client may contact the designer to request a new copy of the ZIP file, but LogoGround cannot guarantee that the designer will be available, responsive or able to re-upload the ZIP file.

4.20 LogoGround collects feedback from clients, including a rating at the end of the design process. Clients are not obligated to provide any feedback or rating. Clients agree that feedback and ratings, if provided, may be shown publicly with the Client's username, but without real names or contact information. Designers agree to not pressure their clients to provide feedback or ratings.

4.21 LogoGround Users hereby authorize LogoGround and its appointed officials to act as their copyright agent/representative for every design posted on the Site. LogoGround and its appointed officials may, without limitation, act on behalf of the user to enforce the user's copyright. This authorization remains in force for the entire period of time that the design remains on the Site. When a logo is deleted from the Site, this authorization will continue and will remain in force for thirty days after the deletion date.

4.22 While having more than one designer account is not against LogoGround rules, creating additional accounts for the purpose of reducing declined logos in the "main" account is not allowed. Using secondary accounts in this way or in any way that is intended to give an unfair advantage to the designer can lead to the accounts being limited or closed.

4.23 LogoGround does not allow logos that were created with the aid of artificial intelligence (AI) systems or services. While we are in favor of AI-assisted design in principle, we recognize that copyright ownership of AI-assisted designs is currently in question, which disqualifies all AI-assisted designs from publication on LogoGround.

4.24 When a logo is deleted from the site, LogoGround removes the image(s) from the server and deletes database entries associated with the logo. LogoGround does not locate and delete every instance of associated files in backups. Though it may happen that a deleted logo remains in old LogoGround backups, it will not have a database entry and thus will not reappear on the site if the backup is ever used to restore the site.

5. Fees and Payments

5.1 There is no cost to browsing the Site or to selling logo designs on the Site. LogoGround charges fees to the client when the client elects to purchase a product or service from the Site. LogoGround retains the right to charge designers a commission on logo sales and the right to revise the commission percentage/structure from time to time.

5.2 Designers agree that the price of each logo displayed on the Site shall be the full price of the logo. At no point shall additional compensation or royalties of any kind be due to you by LogoGround or by the Buyer of the logo with respect to the logo purchased. Designers may charge an additional fee, as determined by the Designer, for additional work that goes beyond the normal service LogoGround provides to its Clients, for example, if the Client wants more than one version of their logo delivered in vector format. Any additional fees must be clearly stated by the Designer and agreed to by the Client beforehand. Unless the Client requests additional work from LogoGround directly, such additional work is beyond the scope of LogoGround's standard service offering and beyond our control and must therefore be agreed upon and completed between the Client and the Designer.

5.3 LogoGround may charge clients an administration fee if it, at any point and in its sole discretion, deems such a fee necessary to fund the operation of the LogoGround web site.

5.4 Money owed by LogoGround to Users will be reflected in the User's account balance from where the user can request a payout of the funds. Payments are processed through the PayPal service only. LogoGround will make the payment to the User's PayPal email address on file at LogoGround. Users are solely responsible for posting and maintaining their account details at LogoGround. LogoGround will be under no further obligation to Users in the event that a payment fails, is not received by the User or is not possible due to any error in the User's LogoGround account information or due to the absence of a valid, correct PayPal email address.

5.5 The User account balance may be reduced at any time by LogoGround for chargebacks or refunds. LogoGround may, at any time, recover from the User's account balance any amount owed by the user to LogoGround or such amounts as necessary to compensate LogoGround for any loss that it determines, in its sole discretion, it has suffered due to the User's breach of this User Agreement.

5.6 Users may at any time request a payout. When a payout is requested LogoGround will transfer the funds to the User's PayPal account during the next pay cycle, provided that the User's account is not suspended or found to be in violation of this Agreement.

5.7 LogoGround is not an escrow service and does not hold property on behalf of Users. If a payment to a Designer fails, for whatever reason, the payment will be moved forward to the next pay cycle. If the payment continues to fail for twelve or more pay cycles or for twelve or more months, whichever comes first, LogoGround will consider the funds unclaimed and the Designer will forfeit the payment. The Designer agrees to make no further claim against LogoGround for funds forfeited.

5.8 When a User's account shows a negative balance for any reason whatsoever, LogoGround may request that the User submit payment to LogoGround equal to the negative account balance. Failure to promptly submit such payment to LogoGround may result in the account being suspended. In addition, LogoGround reserves the right and will have the option to, in its sole discretion, collect such funds from a User's future earnings on LogoGround.

5.9 The User account balance may be reduced at any time by LogoGround for processing fees related to transactions on that account. Processing fees are determined and charged by third party suppliers and are beyond the control of LogoGround. Designers authorize LogoGround to deduct any fees necessary to ensure that LogoGround does not suffer a net financial loss in any transaction. LogoGround will not be obligated to offer explanation or justification for deductions over and above the general fee structure set out in this Agreement.

5.10 LogoGround will not make payments to designers until a project is finalized. A project is considered finalized when the final logo files, including but not necessarily limited to the EPS logo file, have been posted on the client system. In cases where the client becomes unresponsive LogoGround will attempt to establish contact with the client in an effort to complete the project. If this fails, LogoGround will, at its sole discretion, either cancel and refund the project or close the project and make the funds available to the designer.

5.11 Designers are not automatically eligible to receive payments from LogoGround for sales generated on LogoGround.com. In order to receive payments from LogoGround, designers must meet the requirements for payment eligibility as determined by LogoGround and published on the site. LogoGround shall have the right to change the requirements for payment eligibility at its discretion and without prior notice. If a designer makes a sale and is unable to accumulate enough reputation points for payment eligibility the payment will still be sent, but will be delayed for 180 days after which it will be payable at the next payment cycle. LogoGround shall have the right to change the requirements for payment eligibility for individual designers, on a case by case basis, should it, in its sole discretion, perceive a problem with the account or an increased risk of fraud associated with the account or with a specific transaction on the account.

5.12 LogoGround may indefinitely delay payment to a designer should it, in its sole discretion, perceive an increased risk of fraud, a refund or a chargeback associated with one or more of the transactions contributing to the positive account balance, even if the designer has met all requirements for payment eligibility.

5.13 In the event of a chargeback LogoGround may deduct any fees related to the chargeback from the designer's balance or, in the case of a zero balance, from the designer's future earnings. The same also applies to any fees encountered over and above the initial processing fee.

5.14 LogoGround offers designers the option to specify, edit and bulk edit the prices of their unsold logos. LogoGround cannot and does not guarantee that these editing features will always work as expected. It is the sole responsibility of the designer to confirm that their logo prices are correct after uploading and after applying changes and to frequently inspect their unsold logos to ensure that the prices are correct. If a logo sells at a price other than what the designer intended, the designer will remain obligated to deliver the logo to the buyer and the designer will not be eligible for damages or additional compensation from the buyer or from LogoGround, even in cases where an error in the LogoGround system is shown to be the cause.

5.15 Payments to designers may be cancelled by PayPal in certain situations, for example when the designer's PayPal email address is not set up correctly at PayPal, or where the designer does not accept the payment. LogoGround will, as far as possible, attempt to resend cancelled payments to designers, but will not be obligated to do so. Designers are urged to set up their PayPal accounts to receive payments and to ensure that their payment details on LogoGround are up to date.

5.16 LogoGround offers an optional, expedited payment service. Designers have the option to request an expedited (faster) payment or to wait until the normal, scheduled payment date. Designers who request an expedited payment agree that LogoGround may charge a fee for this service. The fee will be clearly communicated to the designer on the page from which designers request expedited payments. LogoGround will deduct this fee from the payment amount. LogoGround retains the right to reject an expedited payment request if it, in its sole discretion, perceives a potential problem with one or more of the transactions contributing to the positive balance or with the designer's LogoGround account. LogoGround will endeavor to notify the designer if it rejects an expedited payment request but cannot guarantee that such notifications will be given in every case. LogoGround will not be required to justify or explain its decision to reject a request. If a request is not rejected, LogoGround agrees to send the payment within one business day wherever possible, or otherwise at the soonest possible time.

6. Project Re-Assignment

A project may be re-assigned to a LogoGround staff designer for various reasons as stipulated under the Legal Relationships and Obligations heading in this Agreement, as well as for any breach of the Agreement by a Designer which may, at our sole discretion, lead to a poor experience for the Buyer. When a project is re-assigned to a LogoGround staff designer, the Designer who created the logo will forfeit all funds associated with the sale and LogoGround will automatically purchase the IPR to the logo from the Designer for the purpose of transferring it to the Client. The Designer agrees to sell and LogoGround agrees to purchase the IPR to the design for the sum of $40 (forty US Dollars), from which LogoGround may deduct all processing fees associated with the sale and transfer of funds, whereafter the Designer shall have no legal claim whatsoever to the design. Said payment shall be credited to the Designer's LogoGround account balance. LogoGround is not required to give prior notice of project re-assignment. The Designer agrees to make no further claims for payment or royalties of any kind in connection with any design sold on these terms.

10. Intellectual Property

Copyright to any logo posted on the Site shall remain with the designer who created the logo. Once a logo is sold, the copyright shall transfer automatically and immediately to the Buyer. The designer shall make no further claims of copyright to the sold logo nor charge any additional fees for copyright transfer of the sold logo. Copyright and ownership transfers to the Buyer, but authorship does not transfer and stays with the Designer, unless otherwise agreed with the Designer beforehand.

During the logo design and revisions process, LogoGround and the designer agree to treat all designs as confidential. Once the logo is finalized, both the designer who originally created the logo and LogoGround shall have a worldwide, perpetual, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable license to display sold logos in their respective portfolios, in the widest sense of the word, in any medium they choose, unless the client contacted LogoGround beforehand and all parties have agreed to further confidentiality.

When you submit content to the site you grant us a worldwide, perpetual, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable license to display such content (including declined logos) on the Site or any other media and to create derivative works of the content for promotional and/or educational puposes or in order to meet client requirements when a sale takes place. Where your content or a derivative thereof is used to promote LogoGround, LogoGround may include attribution where it is possible to do so.

You may not reproduce any of the content on the Site, including but not limited to logos uploaded by users, in any medium, for any purpose, without the prior written consent from LogoGround, its legal representative or the owner of the content in the case of user submitted content.

It is possible to place an order for a logo while one or more other users are in the process of ordering the same logo. In such cases LogoGround shall refund all except the first order to reach us. Once a transaction completes the purchased logo is no longer for sale.

The LogoGround name and logo are trademarks of Graphics Factory CC. User submitted content, including but not limited to logos offered for sale, are the property of and may be trademarks of the respective users.

This Agreement prohibits users from uploading content that infringe on any third party rights and LogoGround manually screens and approves each logo uploaded to the site. However, LogoGround acts purely as the "middle man" between Buyers and Sellers and as such it shall have no obligation to perform trademark, service mark or copyright searches or inquiries of any nature, in order to verify the propriety or legality of any logo offered for sale. It is the Buyer's sole responsibility to conduct the appropriate research to confirm that the logo he or she is purchasing is not in use and/or does not fall under a third party's patent, trademark or other proprietary right.
