Gallery User Agreement

Thank you for your interest in sharing your submission with BasicGrey®. We appreciate your creative contributions and love to see what you’ve designed with our products. However, please be aware of the following Terms of Use.

Uploading/Submissions

By uploading or submitting layouts to BasicGrey®, you are automatically granting BasicGrey® permission to publish your creative works on our website. All submissions become and remain the property of BasicGrey®. BasicGrey® has exclusive ownership of any and all submissions and is entitled to unrestricted use of the submissions for any purpose without compensation to the provider. Frequently we contract with customers to use their work in a variety of different medias. Therefore it is our policy to require customers to complete an online registration form in order to submit creative works.

It is entirely up to BasicGrey®, its employees, officers, owners and all affiliated with BasicGrey® to refuse some or all works submitted. Please keep in mind: (1) that a limited number of layouts will be featured at a time; (2) when submitting multiple layouts for consideration, not all of them will appear in the gallery; and (3) BasicGrey® does not automatically post all submissions entered. BasicGrey® is not responsible for any claim or demand, including attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to your violation of the rights of another.

Selection Policy

Because this is a manufacturer’s gallery, BasicGrey’s selection process includes, but is not limited to, the following criteria: (1) images that predominantly feature BasicGrey® products; (2) images that are clear, crisp and easy to view; (3) images that show a unique or unusual use of BasicGrey® products. Images that have been partially uploaded (a full image does not appear), are blurry, dark or unreadable, or have been submitted multiple times, will be deleted automatically.

Length of Time

To maintain a fresh and current selection of layouts, and provide all scrapbookers and paper artists a chance to appear in our Gallery, all layouts and artwork approved for the Gallery will be deleted in 60-90 days.

Artwork

Because the BasicGrey® gallery is a public internet site, BasicGrey® cannot be held responsible for any gallery images that may be downloaded by others and used for any purpose.

Consent

By using this feature of our site you agree to the terms and conditions of this policy, including the use of creative works and submissions as previously outlined. Please feel free to contact BasicGrey® if you have any questions about this policy: info@basicgrey.com.
