If there is a problem charging your selected payment method, we may charge any other valid payment method associated with your account.

Reviews, Comments, Communications, and Other Content

You may post reviews, comments, photos, videos, and other content; send e-cards and other communications; and submit suggestions, ideas, comments, questions, or other information, so long as the content is not illegal, obscene, threatening, defamatory, invasive of privacy, infringing of intellectual property rights (including publicity rights), or otherwise injurious to third parties or objectionable, and does not consist of or contain software viruses, political campaigning, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings, or any form of "spam" or unsolicited commercial electronic messages. You may not use a false e-mail address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of a card or other content. studioABC reserves the right (but not the obligation) to remove or edit such content, but does not regularly review posted content.

If you do post content or submit material, and unless we indicate otherwise, you grant studioABC a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sublicensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, perform, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, and display such content throughout the world in any media.

Intellectual Property Complaints

studioABC respects the intellectual property of others. If you believe that your intellectual property rights are being infringed, please contact us and follow our Notice and Procedure for Making Claims of Copyright Infringement.

Risk Of Loss

All purchases of physical items from studioABC are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.

Returns, Refunds and Title

studioABC does not take title to returned items until the item arrives at our fulfillment center. At our discretion, a refund may be issued without requiring a return. In this situation, studioABC does not take title to the refunded item. 

Product Descriptions

studioABC attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, studioABC does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of any studioABC Service is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by studioABC itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.

Pricing

"List Price" means the suggested retail price of a product as provided by a manufacturer, supplier, or seller. We regularly check List Prices against prices recently found on AstudioABCazon and other retailers. Certain products may have a "Was Price" displayed, which is determined using recent price history of the product on studioABC.

With respect to items sold by studioABC, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced. If the correct price of an item sold by studioABC is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. Other merchants may follow different policies in the event of a mispriced item.

We generally do not charge your credit card until after your order has entered the shipping process or, for digital products, until we make the digital product available to you.

App Permissions

When you use apps created by studioABC, such as the studioABC App you may grant certain permissions to us for your device. Most mobile devices provide you with information about these permissions.

Sanctions and Export Policy

You may not use any studioABC Service if you are the subject of Uganda sanctions or of sanctions consistent with Uganda law imposed by the governments of the country where you are using studioABC Services. You must comply with all U.Uganda or other export and re-export restrictions that may apply to goods, software (including studioABC Software), technology, and services.

Other Businesses

Parties other than studioABC operate stores, provide services or software, or sell product lines through the studioABC Services. In addition, we provide links to the sites of affiliated companies and certain other businesses. If you purchase any of the products or services offered by these businesses or individuals, you are purchasing directly from those third parties, not from studioABC. We are not responsible for examining or evaluating, and we do not warrant, the offerings of any of these businesses or individuals (including the content of their Web sites). studioABC does not assume any responsibility or liability for the actions, product, and content of all these and any other third parties. You should carefully review their privacy statements and other conditions of use.

DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

THE STUDIOABC SERVICES AND ALL INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) AND OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE STUDIOABC SERVICES ARE PROVIDED BY STUDIOABC ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. STUDIOABC MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THE STUDIOABC SERVICES, OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE STUDIOABC SERVICES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE STUDIOABC SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.

TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, STUDIOABC DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. STUDIOABC DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE STUDIOABC SERVICES, INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE STUDIOABC SERVICES, STUDIOABC'S SERVERS OR ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS SENT FROM STUDIOABC ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, STUDIOABC WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE USE OF ANY STUDIOABC SERVICE, OR FROM ANY INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH ANY STUDIOABC SERVICE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING.

Disputes

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any studioABC Service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by studioABC or through studioABC will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Uganda Arbitration and Conciliation Act law apply to this agreement.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent. The arbitration will be conducted by the Centre for Arbitration and Dispute Resolution under its rules. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the Centre for Arbitration and Dispute Resolution's rules. Likewise, studioABC will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.

We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

Applicable Law

By using any studioABC Service, you agree that the Uganda Arbitration and Conciliation Act and the laws of the Republic of Uganda, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and studioABC.

Site Policies, Modification, and Severability

Please review our other policies posted on this site. These policies also govern your use of studioABC Services. We reserve the right to make changes to our site, policies, Service Terms, and these Conditions of Use at any time. If any of these conditions shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.
