Garage Cotton user agreement and policies
Below is the obligatory fine print. for the meticulous, please read the entire document. for everyone else, allow us to paraphrase our rules…
- if you're submitting ideas and/or designs, make sure they are your own and do not violate anyone’s intellectual property rights — that’s stealing, and stealing is wrong.
- please proudly wear the brilliant products you find on Garage Cotton, just don’t claim any of ideas and/or designs as your own or sell them.
- we reserve the right to refuse to produce any ideas and/or designs for any reason. our reputation is on the line here.
- we will always respect and protect your privacy and personal information. anything less would be unacceptable on our part.
- the internet is a wide open, often crazy, place. we can control what you see on GarageCotton.com, but outside of our walls, you're on your own.
- our payment process is verified, safe and secure. this is something our customers should expect and never have to worry about.
