By accessing or using the Services you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you are using the Services on behalf of an organization or entity (“Organization”), then you are agreeing to these Terms on behalf of that Organization and you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind the Organization to these Terms. In that case, “you” and “your” refers to you and that Organization.
To create or use a ShootProof account, you must be over 18 years of age. You must provide us true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself when you create your ShootProof account. If the information you provide is untrue, inaccurate, incomplete or outdated, or we have reasonable grounds to suspect it is, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate the Services. You may only have one registered free ShootProof account at any given time. If we determine that you have multiple ShootProof accounts or are otherwise not in compliance with these Terms, we may close your ShootProof accounts and delete all photos in the accounts. If there is a mitigating circumstance requiring you to have multiple ShootProof accounts, please obtain written permission from ShootProof prior to uploading any Content.
You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access the Services and for any activities or actions under your password, whether your password is with ShootProof or a third-party service. You agree not to disclose your password to any third party. ShootProof cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements. You must notify ShootProof immediately upon becoming aware of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your ShootProof account.
Organizations and individuals may sell Products through the Services by using an authorized third party merchant account or ShootProof Payments (our payment processing service). ShootProof Payments is only available to U.S. residents. If a seller intends to use ShootProof Payments, seller is required to complete and agree to our Seller Agreement located at https://shootproof.com/legal/seller-agreement (the “Seller Agreement”), which governs seller’s use of the payment processing services. The applicable fees and charges for ShootProof Payments and electronic bank transfers are listed on our fee schedule at: https://kb.shootproof.com/help/article/link/what-is-shootproof-payments, which may be amended from time to time. The Seller Agreement contains additional terms governing seller’s ShootProof Account and sales. If seller fails to complete our Seller Agreement we may suspend or terminate seller’s ShootProof account.
Sellers can use ShootProof Partner Labs to fulfill Product orders sold through the Services, or can self-fulfill orders with the lab of their choice outside of our Services. The cost for each ShootProof Partner Lab fulfilled item will be visible in a ShootProof Partner Lab price sheet, and the Seller will have the ability to sell each such item to a buyer for any price that seller chooses. ShootProof reserves the right to adjust the prices in the ShootProof Partner Lab price sheet at any time with reasonable notice to the seller. It is the Seller’s responsibility to adjust their own prices for each item in their own price sheet(s) for sale to buyer. When a ShootProof Partner Lab is used to fulfill an order, the seller will be responsible for payment of the lab costs and any associated shipping for each order. The total lab cost (lab items and shipping, collectively “Lab Costs”) as noted in the ShootProof Partner Lab price sheet will be deducted by ShootProof from the total collected in each buyer’s applicable order. The Lab Costs will only be deducted from the seller’s ShootProof account (i) when the order has been confirmed by the seller to be sent to the ShootProof Partner Lab based on selecting 'Send to Lab' on the order page or (ii) based on the seller’s settings for ShootProof Partner Lab order submissions and approval. In the event that there is not enough money collected from the buyer’s applicable order to cover the Lab Costs, the Seller will be charged the difference in the amount collected from the buyer for the applicable order and the Lab Costs associated with the order, and the seller authorizes ShootProof to use available funds from the seller’s ShootProof account to pay for the balance of the Lab Costs. If there are not enough funds in the ShootProof account to pay the balance of the Lab Costs, seller authorizes us to charge the seller’s credit card linked to the ShootProof account for the Lab Costs (plus any applicable credit card processing fee if ShootProof Payments is used for such charge). In either scenario, the charge will be visible to the seller in detail prior to confirming the order and submitting it to the ShootProof Partner Lab which will trigger the actual charge. All ShootProof Partner Labs are third party vendors. If you are a seller that is not completely satisfied with an item fulfilled through a ShootProof Partner Lab, please contact email@example.com and complete a return request within forty-five (45) days of the fulfillment order. ShootProof, in its discretion, will reprint the item, or, refund your money. Please note that this return policy only applies to seller’s placing fulfillment orders, and does not apply to any transactions between a buyer and seller.

ShootProof may terminate the Terms or suspend your access to the Services at any time, including in the event of your actual or suspected unauthorized use of the Services or non-compliance with the Terms. Upon termination, any Content you have stored on the Services may no longer be retrieved, so you should make a backup copy of any such Content on a regular basis and before terminating your plan. If you or ShootProof terminate the Terms, or if ShootProof suspends your access to the Services, you agree that ShootProof shall have no liability or responsibility to you and ShootProof will not refund any amounts that you have already paid, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law.

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.

THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SECTION APPLIES WHETHER THE ALLEGED LIABILITY IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR ANY OTHER BASIS, EVEN IF SHOOTPROOF HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE. THE FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SHALL APPLY TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW IN THE APPLICABLE JURISDICTION.
No party shall be liable for any default or delay in the performance of its obligations under these Terms if and to the extent such default or delay is caused directly or indirectly by a force majeure event. In any such event, the non-performing party shall be excused from any further performance and observance of the obligations so affected only for as long as such circumstances prevail and such party continues to use commercially reasonable efforts to recommence performance or observance as soon as practicable.
These Terms shall be governed by Georgia law, without regard to to its choice of law or conflicts of law. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.
The terms of this section will apply to all disputes that may arise out of, are connected with, or relate to these Term or the Services, subject only to the following exceptions: (1) if ShootProof reasonably believes that you have in any manner acted or failed to act in any manner that may cause harm to ShootProof or any third party, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any court of competent jurisdiction; or (2) any dispute may, at the option of the claiming party, be resolved in small claims court in Atlanta, Georgia, provided that all claims by all parties in the dispute (i) fall within the jurisdiction of the small claims court, and (ii) were unsuccessfully resolved through the informal resolution process set forth below. In no event will the terms of this section limit ShootProof's ability to investigate complaints or reported violations of these Terms, or to take any action we deem necessary and appropriate to mitigate actions against ShootProof, including reporting any suspected unlawful activity to law enforcement officials, regulators, or other third parties.
You agree that prior to filing any claim against ShootProof, you will first contact ShootProof and provide a brief, written description of the dispute and your contact information (including your username, if your dispute relates to an account). You will allow ShootProof thirty (30) days from the date of filing your written description within which to resolve the dispute to your reasonable satisfaction.
Except as otherwise set forth in this section, if ShootProof does not resolve the dispute through good faith negotiations under this informal process, then either party may bring a formal claim, which claim shall be resolved through final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in the city of Atlanta, Georgia under the AAA’s commercial arbitration rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The timeline for disputes, unless otherwise required by applicable law, must be commenced within one year after the cause of action accrues. ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND SHOOTPROOF ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
These Terms with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with ShootProof constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the Service, and supersede any previous agreements and understandings. In the event of a conflict between these Terms and the Seller Agreement, the Seller Agreement shall prevail. In the event of conflict between any other ShootProof agreement or policy (“Additional Terms”), these Terms shall prevail.
ShootProof reserves the right to amend these Terms at any time, and to change, delete, discontinue, or impose conditions on any feature or aspect of the Services, with notice that we deem, in our sole discretion, to be reasonable according to the circumstances. Notice may include notice on our website at ShootProof.com or to the email associated with your ShootProof account. Any use of our Services after publication of any such change shall constitute your acceptance of these Terms as modified. If you do not agree to, or cannot comply with, the Terms as amended, you must stop using the Services and notify ShootProof.
The parties intend every provision of these Terms to be severable. If any part of these Terms is not enforceable, the remaining provisions shall remain valid and enforceable. In such case, the parties will in good faith modify or substitute a provision consistent with their original intent. If any remedy fails of its essential purpose, then all other provisions, including the limitations on liability and exclusion of damages, will remain fully effective.
Any notices or demands shall be in writing and addressed to the respective parties, as follows:
