Accessing our Service
Access to the Services is permitted on a temporary basis, and we reserve the right to withdraw or amend the services we provide through the Site without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason any of the Services are unavailable at any time or for any period.
If you choose, or you are provided with, a user identification code, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any third party. We have the right to disable any user identification code or password, whether chosen by you or allocated by us, at any time, if in our opinion you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these Customer Terms.

Intellectual property rights and Copyright.
You are responsible for the Intellectual Property Rights for items in your shop. You must not include items that are copyright protected under law in this country or worldwide. Products using Disney images will be removed from the sight immediately unless you can supply us with the Disney Licencing Agreement. This also applies to other Trade Marked or copyright items. Using the wording ‘Inspired by’ or ‘based on’ still constitutes a copyright infringement and therefore should not be used. Search engines use tags and meta data to complete their tasks and will pick up on unlicenced products very quickly.
You must not extract or otherwise use any of the content on the Site and/or Service for commercial purposes without obtaining a licence to do so from us or our licensors.
We respect the intellectual property rights of others and we ask our Sellers to do the same. If you are aware that any of your intellectual property rights have been infringed on the Site, please contact us to report the concern.

Payment for your shop. If you purchase membership and then change your mind before setting your shop up, you are entitled to a refund less the charges levied by Paypa/Stripel. If you sign up for membership, an automatic recurring payment for that membership is set up. This can be cancelled before the next payment is due, if you cancel it straight away because you want to see how your first month on the site goes, your shop will automatically be cancelled. If you cancel part way through your membership, you will be entitled to a refund of the unused membership less Paypal/Stripe fees and an amendment fee, this does not apply to Promotions and Special Offers. Conditions for Promotions and Special Offers are on the sign up page. Please wait for the reminder email before cancelling. When you cancel a package, all aspects of the membership will cease so any promotions that were included in the package will end when your membership ends. Should you want to cancel your membership, please make sure that you cancel via your dashboard and also cancel any recurring payments through Paypal or Stripe. If this is not done, you may well be charged for membership.
