20x200 Terms of Use

To make the 20x200.com website ("20x200") available to you, we at Jen Bekman Projects, Inc. require you to agree to and abide by the requirements set out below ("Terms"). If you don't agree to these Terms, then you can't use 20x200 and we will be sad.

The Basics

You must be 18 years old or older to use 20x200 or have a legal guardian agree that you can use 20x200.

We also allow businesses to use 20x200 and make purchases. If you are using 20x200 on behalf of a business, then you must have authority, and your use of 20x200 is a warranty that you have the authority, to bind that business to these Terms.

Be smart! You will be responsible for all activity that occurs under your username and password when that functionality becomes available. We therefore recommend that you keep your password secure and don't allow others to use your username. The only way that we have to verify your identity is through your username and password, so keep them to yourself.

Be nice! We are trying to create a community at 20x200, so won't tolerate users that threaten, impersonate, abuse or harass other 20x200 users or act in any way that we think is outside of these Terms or the spirit of 20x200.

Because the internet is available pretty much everywhere, we can't possibly keep up with all legal requirements that may apply to use of 20x200. We therefore put the onus on you to ensure that your use of 20x200 complies with all laws, rules and regulations that are applicable to you. These Terms are void and use of 20x200 is revoked where use is prohibited.

We have to reserve the right to change these Terms. We'll do our best to let you know when we change them but you should review them periodically to make sure that you understand the agreement between you and us. If you continue to use 20x200 after we post new Terms, then you acknowledge that you agree to those new Terms.

We have other policies, guidelines, FAQs and requirements that we post elsewhere on 20x200 from time to time. We expect that you will, and you agree to, abide by any other requirements posted on 20x200. All of those policies, guidelines, FAQs and other requirements are incorporated into these Terms.

If you don't like something posted on 20x200, you may navigate away from that page. We can't be responsible for the impact anything posted on 20x200 may have on you.



Do's and Don't's

When using 20x200...

Do:

Re-post images from 20x200 on other websites! (That's right this is a Do, not a Don't.) We support this practice and think that it benefits our artists. As long as you include a link back to 20x200 and the page on which that image or content appears (and otherwise comply with these Terms, duh) we're fine with your re-posting of content, thumbnails, links to 20x200, etc., in your blogs, social-network postings, listings, etc.
Be authentic. All the registration information that you submit to us, and all other information posted or submitted to 20x200 must be accurate, truthful and up-to-date. We rely on this information, so please let us know if any of your information changes.
Be responsible. You are solely responsible for your conduct on 20x200, including for any data, text, information, usernames, graphics, profiles, audio and video ("Content") that you post, submit or display on 20x200.
Be careful. If you use any community features of 20x200, such as commenting or social networking, be aware that any personal information (your name, phone number, address, email address) that you elect to share will be shown to other users of 20x200. So don't post it unless you want the public to see it.

Don't:

Infringe our artists' rights. This is their livelihood! If you reproduce or sell images of their artwork, or post their artwork to other sites without a link back to 20x200, you'll be infringing their copyright and other rights to their art, which is illegal. As mentioned above, we do give you the limited right to repost images from 20x200.
Infringe other people's rights, either. Don't infringe upon any third party's copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary or intellectual property rights or rights of publicity or privacy.
Abuse our site. You may not use 20x200 for hosting graphic elements of web page designs, icons, smilies, buddy icons, forum avatars, badges and other non-photographic elements on external websites. Nor may you modify, adapt, disassemble or otherwise change or interfere with the use of 20x200. You know what else? You're not allowed to interfere with or disrupt 20x200 or violate the security, servers or networks of 20x200.
Lie, cheat or steal. Don't do anything on 20x200 that is fraudulent or involves the sale of illegal, counterfeit, stolen items. This includes artists misrepresenting work as their own and buyers attempting to reproduce an artist's artwork.
Lie, cheat or steal, The Sequel. Don't threaten, impersonate, abuse, defame, libel, or harass other 20x200 users or act in any way that we think is outside of these Terms or the spirit of 20x200.
Lie, cheat or steal, 3-D. Don't post, submit or display anything that is false, inaccurate, misleading, defamatory, trade libelous, unlawfully threatening, unlawfully harassing, obscene, profane, vulgar, offensive, or otherwise not appropriate, as determined by us.
Break the law. Don't violate any law, statute, ordinance or regulation (including, but not limited to, those governing export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, anti-discrimination or false advertising).
Front. Do not impersonate any other user or person or entity.
Hack. Don't even think about uploading, posting or displaying any viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots, easter eggs or other computer programming routines that may damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or personal information.
Ruin it for the rest of us. Don't create liability for us or cause us to lose (in whole or in part) the services of our ISPs or other suppliers.
Spam us (or anyone else!). Create or submit through or otherwise use 20x200 to engage in any unwanted email solicitations, spam, or other business that is unrelated to 20x200.
Spread rumors. Link to 20x200 in a manner that would create an association between 20x200 and another site, or indicate that 20x200 approves, endorses or is otherwise related to another site.


Artists' Rights

Our artists retain the copyright to their artwork at all times. Simply buying a piece of art does not transfer any of the copyright or other rights to the you. You therefore may not reproduce images of artwork purchased on 20x200 without the artist's prior written consent.

If you are an artist, photographer or other copyright owner, and you think that something on 20x200 violates your rights, please refer to our Copyright Infringement Policy.


Our Rights and Responsibilities

We try really, really hard to make 20x200 available to you at all times. That said, stuff happens. 20x200 may not be continuously available, your content might be removed, we might need to make updates to 20x200, our software, hardware or infrastructure. Rest assured that we will get 20x200 back up and running as soon as we can.

We may need to change or discontinue certain aspects of 20x200. We may do so with or without notice to you.
We don't have the capacity to review everything that gets posted to 20x200. We may, but have no obligation to, remove content ("content" includes, for example, items, item descriptions, and information submitted in the forums) and accounts containing content that we determine in our sole discretion is unlawful, offensive, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene or otherwise objectionable or violates any party's intellectual property, these Terms, the Privacy Policy, or other policy documents and community guidelines as posted on 20x200.
You can remove your profile at any time by deleting your account. This will also remove any private information you have stored in the system. We do not have the obligation to remove any comments or other postings that you have made on 20x200.
By uploading Content to 20x200, you agree to allow other 20x200 users to view and comment on the Content and you agree to allow 20x200 to display the Content on 20x200, and store, modify, reformat, distribute and otherwise use and exploit the Content forever as we see fit.
20x200, and all content, trademarks, logos, designs, graphics, images, audio, video, software are owned by us and our licensors. 20x200 is protected by United States and international copyright laws, and all rights are reserved by us and our licensors.

Third Party Services

20x200 may enable you to use third party services, such as Twitter, Facebook, blogging sites, emailing content, etc. 20x200 may also contain links to websites outside of 20x200. When you use these third party services or link to another website, you are no longer dealing directly with 20x200. Before using any of these features, you should review the terms of service and privacy policies of any such third party provider.


Checkout, Shipping, Returns, Gift Certificates

We're experts in art, not processing payment transactions. We use a third party to process payments for purchases that you make on 20x200. They have separate Terms and Conditions that you will need to agree to as part of the checkout process. We are not responsible for their Terms and Conditions or for the security and privacy of any credit card or other personal information that you submit through them.
We will ship orders in accordance with your requests at checkout. All orders will be subject to our Shipping Policies.
Returns and refunds are governed by our Return Policy.
You may purchase and redeem Gift Certificates as set out on our Gift Certificate page.


Privacy

We take your privacy seriously. Please review our Privacy Policy, which describes how we handle information about you. Remember, though: we don't actually do the payment processing, so you should refer to the Terms and Conditions of our provider for how they will handle your credit card and other important information.


OMG When Will It End

Hang in there, we're almost done!

The next two paragraphs are in all caps because our lawyers said they have to be. We're really not trying to yell at you, promise.

Disclaimer of warranties. WE PROVIDE 20x200 "AS IS, AS AVAILABLE", AND YOUR ACCESS OF 20x200 IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT 20x200 OR OUR SERVICES WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS OR RESULT IN ANY PARTICULAR OUTCOME, OR THAT THE OPERATION WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. OUR SERVICES AND 20x200 ARE "AS IS" AND WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND (EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY). TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, WE SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMER MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Liability limitation. WE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (EVEN IF YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED US OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES). OUR CUMULATIVE LIABILITY RELATING TO YOUR USE OF 20x200 (REGARDLESS OF ITS BASIS), SHALL NOT EXCEED THE GREATER OF (A) AMOUNTS THAT YOU PAY IN CONNECTION WITH A PARTICULAR PURCHASE YOU MAKE FROM 20x200 AND (B) $100. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
NY law. New York law governs these Terms regardless of conflict-of-law principles. 

Disputes with us. Our goal is to make you happy. In the event a dispute arises between you and us, please email us at support@20x200.com and we will work quickly toward a solution. If we can't come to a mutual resolution and need to get a neutral third party involved, rather than having to go to court, we require that any dispute related to these Terms or your use of 20x200 be submitted to arbitration by a single arbitrator in New York, under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association in effect at that time. The arbitrator's award shall be binding and judgment on the award shall be entered in any court with proper jurisdiction.

Disputes with others. If you have a dispute with one or more other users, you release us, 20x200 (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

Keep in touch. You may contact us using the various methods listed on our Contact page. If we need to contact you, we will use the contact information that you provided to us as part of the registration process. Easy, tiger. You and 20x200 are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchisor-franchisee relationship is intended or created by these Terms.

Assignments, etc. You may not assign, transfer, delegate or sub-license any of your rights under these Terms. We may assign, transfer, delegate or sublicense any of our rights under these Terms. If you don't like whom we transfer our responsibilities to, then you should stop using 20x200.

Severability. If any provision of these Terms is illegal, void or unenforceable, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary for the rest of the agreement to remain enforceable.

No waiver. Our failure to enforce any part of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of our right to later enforce that or any other part of these Terms. Just because we might waive compliance once, does not mean we will do so again. For any waiver of compliance with these Terms to be binding on us, one of our authorized representatives must provide you with written notice of that waiver.

Entire agreement almost. These Terms and any policies, guidelines, FAQs and requirements that we post on 20x200 state the complete understanding between you and us. No modification of these Terms will be enforced against us unless in writing and signed by an authorized representative.

The headings don't count. The section and paragraph headings in these Terms are for your reading pleasure only and shall not affect the interpretation of these Terms.

It's been real. And...that's a wrap. Thanks for reading and please, live with art—it's good for you! ®
