Terms of Service
This page explains our terms and conditions of general services, which contain important information about your legal rights. When you use the Site and Apps, you are agreeing to these standard terms. To help make them easier to understand, we have also included annotations above each section. These annotations are not to be included within the official Mimeo Photos terms and have no legal effect, but are intended to help you better understand the legal provisions.
- Effective Date.
This Agreement was last updated on October 23, 2018.
Please read this Agreement carefully. It includes important information about your legal rights, and covers areas such as warranty disclaimers, limitations of liability, the resolution of disputes by arbitration, and waiver. Please note that if you are an EU consumer, some of these provisions may not apply to you and you may be entitled to specific rights under the mandatory laws of the country in which you live.
- Acceptance of Terms.
Mimeo.com, Inc. (“Mimeo”) and its suppliers and designees provide this site (www.mimeophotos.com), interfaces, builders, mobile sites, mobile applications, and / or the site-related services, (collectively, the “Site and Apps”) subject to your compliance with the terms and conditions set forth below (the “Agreement”). By using the Site, and Apps and/or placing an Order, you are acknowledging that you agree to be bound by all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
- Changes in Terms & Conditions and the Site and Apps.
If we ever change our Terms and Conditions in a way that meaningfully reduces your rights, we will give you notice and an opportunity to cancel.
This Agreement outlines the legally binding terms for your use of the Site and Apps. We may modify this Agreement from time to time, and will always post the most current version on our Site and Apps. If a modification meaningfully reduces your rights, we’ll notify you (by, for example, sending you an email or displaying a prominent notice within the Services). The notice will designate a reasonable period after which the new terms will take effect. Modifications will never apply retroactively. You accept the affirmative obligation to periodically review whether or not these Terms & Conditions have changed. By continuing to use or access the Site and Apps after any modifications come into effect, you agree to be bound by the modified Agreement and price changes. If you disagree with our changes, then you should stop using the Site and Apps and cancel all applicable Mimeo services.
Mimeo shall also have the right at any time to: (1) change the Site and Apps, including limiting availability of, eliminating, or discontinuing any product, service, or any other content on or feature of the Site and Apps; or (2) change any prices, fees or charges related to the Site and Apps. Such changes shall be effective immediately upon notice thereof, which may be given by means including but not limited to posting on the Site or transmission via electronic mail.

Before using any Mimeo mobile applications (“App” or “Apps”), Mimeo may ask you to install a valid copy of the App on your mobile device, register for an account, input your account information into the App as requested, and meet certain hardware and connection requirements which may change as the App evolves. You are responsible for any internet connection fees and/or mobile carrier charges that you incur when accessing or using an App. Should you uninstall an App from your mobile device, you may not be able to use all or some of the features of the App. We use reasonable efforts to accurately display the attributes of any photographs in products that you order through an App, including the colors of those photographs; however, the actual color you see is dependent upon your mobile device, and we cannot guarantee that your mobile device will accurately display such colors.
- Site and Apps Content and Mimeo Intellectual Property.
All content on the Site and Apps, including but not limited to designs, text, graphics, pictures, video, information, software, music, sound and other files, and their selection and arrangement (the “Site Content”), are the proprietary property of Mimeo or its licensors with all rights reserved. No Site Content may be modified, copied, distributed, framed, reproduced, republished, downloaded, displayed, posted, transmitted, or sold in any form or by any means, in whole or in part, without Mimeo‘s prior written permission, except that the foregoing does not apply to your own material that you legally upload to the Site.
All contents on the Site and Apps are: Copyright (c); 1999-2018 Mimeo.com, Inc. or its partners. All rights reserved. Mimeo.com, Inc. and any Mimeo.com, Inc. brand logos are trademarks of Mimeo. All other trademarks are property of their respective companies. All trademarks and registered trademarks are protected by US and International trademark laws.
Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as conferring any license or right to any Mimeo intellectual property, including without limitation Mimeo’s Mimeo Photo, Mimeo Print, Mimeo Printx, Mimeo Digital, printing, copying, duplication, collating, assembly, binding, storage, inventory, kitting, and delivery services, whether by estoppel, implication or otherwise.
- Disclaimer of Warranty; Limitation of Liability.
Mimeo works hard to make our Site and Apps great, but the services are provided as-is, without warranties. If something happens as a result of your use of our Site, Mimeo’s liability is capped.
EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES CONTAINED IN THESE TERMS, OUR PRODUCTS AND SERVICES, INCLUDING ALL MATERIALS INCORPORATED THEREIN, ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED.

NOTE: CERTAIN APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO SOME OF THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

A request for Signature Release on any package authorizes Mimeo to deliver your shipment without obtaining a signature and signifies your agreement to indemnify and hold harmless Mimeo from any resulting claims.
- Copyright Issues.
While we are not obligated to review User Submitted Materials for copyright infringement, we are committed to protecting copyrights and expect users of our Sites and Apps to do the same. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that any material used or displayed on or through our Sites and Apps infringes your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow us to locate the material on our Sites and Apps; (d) the name, address, telephone number and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see https://www.copyright.gov for details. DMCA notices and counter-notices regarding our Sites and Apps should be sent to:
3 Park Avenue, 22nd Floor
New York, NY 10016

YOU AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THIRD PARTY SITES, SOFTWARE AND SERVICES INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, YOUR USE OF ANY CONTENT, INFORMATION, DATA, ADVERTISING, PRODUCTS, OR OTHER MATERIALS ON OR AVAILABLE THROUGH SUCH SITES, SOFTWARE AND SERVICES, IS AT YOUR OWN RISK AND IS SUBJECT TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE APPLICABLE TO SUCH SITES, SOFTWARE AND SERVICES.

Headings, Titles. The section titles in this Agreement are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
Waiver and Severability of Terms. The failure of Mimeo to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Any waiver of any provision of this Agreement will be effective only if in writing and signed by Mimeo. If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of this Agreement remain in full force and effect.
Statute of Limitations. You and Mimeo agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to this service must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action arose; otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.

In all such jurisdictions, the applicable time period shall be the minimum allowed by law.
Choice of Law and Forum. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, excluding its conflict of law provisions. You and Mimeo agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of New York County in the State of New York.
No Conflict. In the event there is a conflict between the terms and conditions of this Agreement and any Order, the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement shall prevail.

The award rendered by the arbitrators shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and judgment on such award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof; provided, however, that nothing in this Paragraph shall be deemed as preventing either party from seeking relief from the courts as necessary to protect either party’s name, proprietary information, trade secrets, know how or any other appropriate provisional remedy. The parties shall be entitled to discovery as provided in the Code of Civil Procedure of the State of New York.
Cancellation of an Order. You may cancel any order placed with Mimeo provided that Mimeo receives the cancellation prior to the shipment of your order.

You further represent and warrant that You are not yourself subject to export restrictions imposed by any such laws, rules and regulations.
Use of Promotional Codes. Mimeo may from time to time make promotional codes available to specific users for the purpose of providing certain discounts or other special offers. These codes have not been authorized by Mimeo for general public use. Promotional codes may be redeemed as described in the specifics of the promotion. Mimeo promotional codes cannot be combined with any other offers or promotions. By using a Mimeo promotional code, You represent and warrant that You have been authorized by Mimeo to utilize the promotional code.

Mimeo promotional codes are not retroactive and price adjustments will not be issued to orders placed prior to the start of any promotion.
