  1. Non-Confidentiality of Your User-Generated Content. Except as otherwise described in any applicable Additional Terms, you agree that (a) your UGC will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary by us – regardless of whether you mark them “confidential,” “proprietary,” or the like – and will not be returned, and (b) to the maximum extent not prohibited by applicable law, Spencer’s does not assume any obligation of any kind to you or any third party with respect to your UGC. Upon request, you will provide documentation necessary to authenticate rights to such content and verify your compliance with these Terms or any applicable Additional Terms.

    In your communications with Spencer’s, please keep in mind we may seek any ideas or materials for products or services, or even suggested improvements to products or services, including, without limitation, ideas, concepts, inventions, or designs for music, websites, apps, books, scripts, screenplays, motion pictures, television shows, theatrical productions, software, or otherwise (collectively, “Solicited Ideas and Materials”). Any Solicited Ideas and Materials you submit are deemed UGC and licensed to us as set forth below in 3(A)(ii). In addition, Spencer’s retains all of the rights held by members of the general public with regard to your Solicited Ideas and Materials. Spencer’s receipt of your Solicited Ideas and Materials is not an admission by Spencer’s of their novelty, priority, or originality, and it does not impair Spencer’s’ right to contest existing or future intellectual property rights relating to your Solicited Ideas and Materials. If we do not seek Solicited Ideas and Materials, you will not send us any original creative materials. Any such communication or material you do transmit to us will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary and are deemed UGC and licensed to us as set forth below in 3(A)(ii).

 

  1. License to Spencer’s of Your UGC. Except as otherwise described in any applicable Additional Terms (such as a promotion’s official rules), which specifically govern the submission of your UGC, you hereby grant Spencer’s the non-exclusive, unrestricted, unconditional, unlimited, worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual, and cost-free right and license to use, copy, record, distribute, reproduce, disclose, sell, re-sell, sublicense (through multiple levels), display, publicly perform, transmit, publish, broadcast, translate, make derivative works of, and otherwise use and exploit in any manner whatsoever, all or any portion of your UGC (and derivative works thereof), for any purpose whatsoever in all formats, on or through any means or medium now known or hereafter developed, and with any technology or devices now known or hereafter developed, and to advertise, market, and promote the same. Without limitation, the granted rights include the right to: (a) configure, host, index, cache, archive, store, digitize, compress, optimize, modify, reformat, edit, adapt, publish in searchable format, and remove such UGC and combine same with other materials; and (b) use any ideas, concepts, know-how, or techniques contained in any UGC for any purposes whatsoever, including developing, producing, and marketing products and/or services. You understand that in exercising such rights metadata, notices, and content may be removed or altered, including copyright management information, and you consent thereto and represent and warrant you have all necessary authority to do so. In order to further effect the rights and license that you grant to Spencer’s to your UGC, you also, as permitted by applicable law, grant to Spencer’s the unconditional, perpetual, irrevocable right to use and exploit your name, persona, and likeness in connection with any UGC, without any obligation or remuneration to you. Except as prohibited by law, you hereby waive any moral rights (including attribution and integrity) that you may have in any UGC, even if it is altered or changed in a manner not agreeable to you. To the extent not waivable, you irrevocably agree not to exercise such rights (if any) in a manner that interferes with any exercise of the granted rights. You understand that you will not receive any fees, sums, consideration, or remuneration for any of the rights granted in this Section 3(A)(ii).

 

  1. Spencer’s’ Exclusive Right to Manage the Site. Spencer’s may, but will not have any obligation to, review, monitor, display, post, store, maintain, accept, or otherwise make use of, any of your UGC, and Spencer’s may, in its sole discretion, reject, delete, move, re-format, refuse to post, or otherwise make use of UGC without notice or any liability to you or any third-party in connection with our operation of UGC venues in an appropriate manner, such as to enhance accessibility of UGC, address copyright infringement, and protect users from harmful UGC. Without limitation, we may, but do not commit to, address content that comes to our attention that we believe is offensive, obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, violent, harassing, threatening, abusive, illegal, or otherwise objectionable or inappropriate, or to enforce the rights of third parties or these Terms or any applicable Additional Terms. Such UGC submitted by you or others need not be maintained on the Site by us for any period of time, and you will not have the right, once submitted, to access, archive, maintain, change, remove, or otherwise use such UGC on the Site or elsewhere.

 

  1. Representations and Warranties Related to Your UGC. Each time you submit any UGC, you represent and warrant that you are at least the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you reside and that: (a) you are the sole author and owner of the intellectual property and other rights to the UGC, or you have a lawful right to submit the UGC, and grant Spencer’s the rights to it that you are granting by these Terms and any applicable Additional Terms, all without any obligation on Spencer’s to obtain consent of any third party and without creating any obligation or liability of Spencer’s; (b) the UGC is accurate; (c) the UGC does not and, as to Spencer’s permitted uses and exploitation set forth in these Terms, will not infringe any intellectual property or other right of any third party; and (d) the UGC will not violate these Terms or any applicable Additional Terms, or cause injury or harm to any person.

 

  1. Enforcement. Spencer’s has no obligation to monitor or enforce your intellectual property rights to your UGC, but you grant us the right to protect and enforce our rights to your UGC, including initiating actions in your name and on your behalf (at Spencer’s cost and expense, to which you hereby consent and irrevocably appoint Spencer’s as your attorney-in-fact, with the power of substitution and delegation, which appointment is coupled with an interest). For alleged infringements of intellectual property rights, see Section 4. We expect UGC to be appropriate for a general audience, but do not undertake to monitor it, and you consent to potentially encountering content you find offensive or inappropriate. If you discover any content that violates these Terms or any applicable Additional Terms, then you may report it by contacting us at legal@spencergifts.com. If you submit UGC that Spencer’s reasonably believes violates these Terms, then we may take any legally available action that we deem appropriate, in our sole discretion. However, we are not obligated to take any action not required by applicable law. We may require, at any time, proof of the permissions referred to above in a form acceptable to us. Failure to provide such proof may lead to, among other things, the UGC in question being removed from the Site.

4. INFRINGEMENT AND DISPUTE TERMS

 

A.    Procedure for Alleging Copyright Infringement

If you are a copyright owner and believe infringing use of your content is on our Site, or you are a user who has received notice that you have posted allegedly copyright infringing content on our Site, see below for more information.

 

Spencer’s asks our users to respect the intellectual property rights of others. It is our policy to respond appropriately to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement, as set forth more fully below. In Spencer’s sole discretion, we may remove content that may be infringing on another person’s intellectual property rights with or without notice to the potential infringer. In accordance with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and other applicable law, Spencer’s has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances, users who are deemed to be repeat infringers.

 

If we remove or disable access in response to a DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice, we will make a good faith attempt to contact the owner or administrator of the affected content so that they may make a counter-notification. If you own a copyright in a work (or represent such a copyright owner) and believe that your (or such owner’s) copyright in that work has been infringed by an improper posting or distribution of it via the Site, then you may send us a written notice that includes all of the following:

 

                i.         a title or subject line that says: “DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice”;

               ii.         a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works;

              iii.         a description of where the material that you claim is infringing or is the subject of infringing activity is located that is reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material (please include the full URL of the page(s) on the Site on which the material appears or relevant screenshots);

             iv.         your full name, address, telephone number, and email address;

              v.         a statement by you that you have 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;

             vi.         a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that all the information in your notice is accurate, and that you are the copyright owner (or, if you are not the copyright owner, then your statement must indicate that you are authorized to act on the behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed); and

            vii.         your electronic or physical signature.

 

Spencer’s will only respond to DMCA Notices that it receives by mail or email at the addresses below:

By Mail:
Spencer Gifts LLC
Attn: Legal Department
6826 Black Horse Pike
Egg Harbor Township, NJ 08234

By Email:
legaldept@spencergifts.com

For more information call:
1-800-762-0419

Spencer’s may elect to not respond to DMCA Notices that do not substantially comply with all of the foregoing requirements, and Spencer’s may elect to remove allegedly infringing material that comes to its attention via notices that do not substantially comply with the DMCA.

 

Please note that the DMCA provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.

 

We may send the information that you provide in your notice to the person who provided the allegedly infringing work. That person may elect to send us a DMCA Counter-Notification.

 

Without limiting Spencer’s other rights, Spencer’s may, in appropriate circumstances, terminate a repeat infringer’s access to the Site and any other website owned or operated by Spencer’s.

 

B.    Counter-Notification.

 

If access on the Site to a work that you submitted to Spencer’s is disabled or the work is removed as a result of a DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice, and if you believe that the disabled access or removal is the result of mistake or misidentification, then you may send us a DMCA Counter-Notification to the addresses above. Your DMCA Counter-Notification should contain the following information:

 

                i.         a legend or subject line that says: “DMCA Counter-Notification”;

               ii.         a description of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled (please include the full URL of the page(s) on the Site from which the material was removed or access to it disabled or relevant screenshots);

              iii.         a statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled;

             iv.         your full name, address, telephone number, email address, and the username of your Account;

              v.         a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or, if the address is located outside the U.S.A., to the jurisdiction of the New York Supreme Court, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided DMCA notification to us or an agent of such person; and

             vi.         your electronic or physical signature.

 

Please note that the DMCA provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability.

 

If we receive a DMCA Counter-Notification, then we may replace the material that we removed (or stop disabling access to it) in not less than ten (10) and not more than fourteen (14) business days following receipt of the DMCA Counter-Notification. However, we will not do this if we first receive notice at the addresses above that the party who sent us the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice has filed a lawsuit asking a court for an order restraining the person who provided the material from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the Site. You should also be aware that we may forward the Counter-Notification to the party who sent us the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice.

If any controversy, allegation, or claim arises out of or relates to the Site, the Content, these Terms, or any Additional Terms, whether heretofore or hereafter arising (collectively, “Dispute”), then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Dispute, along with a proposed resolution. Our notice to you will be sent based on the most recent contact information that you provide us. If no such information exists, or if such information is not current, then we have no obligation under this Section 10(A). Your notice to us must be sent to:

 

Spencer Gifts LLC

Attn: Legal Department

6826 Black Horse Pike

Egg Harbor Township, NJ 08234

 

 

For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, Spencer’s and you will engage in a dialogue to attempt to resolve the Dispute, though nothing will require either you or Spencer’s to resolve the Dispute in this manner.

B. Arbitration. If we cannot resolve a Dispute as set forth in Section 10(A) within sixty (60) days of receipt of the notice, then to the fullest extent not prohibited by applicable law, any and all disputes between you and Spencer’s of any nature or arising out of any transaction or relationship, including but not limited to those related to this Site or these Terms, shall be resolved by arbitration in accordance with the provisions of this Section. BY USING THE SITE AND AGREEING TO ARBITRATION YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO SUE OR GO TO COURT TO ASSERT OR DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS. You and Spencer’s expressly delegate to the arbitrator the authority to determine the arbitrability of any dispute, including the scope, applicability, validity, and enforceability of this arbitration provision.

 

You may begin an arbitration proceeding by sending an email to legaldept@spencergifts.com or sending a letter requesting arbitration to:

 

Spencer Gifts LLC

Attn: Legal Department

6826 Black Horse Pike

Egg Harbor Township, NJ 08234

 

 

 

Disputes will be resolved solely by binding arbitration in accordance with the then-current consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). If a party properly submits the Dispute to the AAA for formal arbitration and the AAA is unwilling to arbitrate the Dispute, then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services Inc. (“JAMS”) using JAMS’ streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, or by any other arbitration administration service that you and an officer or legal representative of Spencer’s consent to in writing. If an in-person arbitration hearing is required, then it will be conducted in the “metropolitan statistical area” (as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau) where you are a resident at the time the Dispute is submitted to arbitration. You and we will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules; but if applicable arbitration rules or laws require Spencer’s to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this Section 10(A) to be enforceable, then Spencer’s will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration. The arbitrator will (a) apply applicable law and the provisions of these Terms and any Additional Terms; (b) determine any Dispute according to applicable law and facts in the record and no other basis; and (c) issue a reasoned award only in favor of the party seeking relief and only to the extent such relief is warranted by that party’s claim. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms.

C. Class Action Waiver. DISPUTES WILL BE ARBITRATED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND WILL NOT BE JOINED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH ANY OTHER ARBITRATIONS OR OTHER PROCEEDINGS THAT INVOLVE ANY CLAIM OR CONTROVERSY OF ANY OTHER PARTY. YOU AND SPENCER’S AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.

 

11. APPLICABLE LAW

 

These Terms and any applicable Additional Terms will be governed by and construed in accordance with, and any Dispute will be resolved in accordance with, the laws of the State of New Jersey, United States of America without regard to its conflicts of law provisions that might apply the laws of another jurisdiction.

 

12. ASSIGNMENT

 

Spencer’s may assign its rights and obligations under these Terms and any applicable Additional Terms, in whole or in part, to any party at any time without any notice. These Terms and any applicable Additional Terms may not be assigned by you, and you may not delegate your duties under them, without the prior written consent of an officer of Spencer’s.

 

13. COMPLETE AGREEMENT AND SEVERABILITY

 

Unless otherwise specified, these Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Spencer’s. If any part of these Terms is held illegal or unenforceable, the remainder of the Terms shall be unaffected and shall continue to be fully valid, binding, and enforceable. The failure of Spencer’s to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive Spencer’s right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. Spencer’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Any waiver of any provision of these Terms will be effective only if in writing signed by an officer of Spencer’s.

 

14. INVESTIGATIONS; COOPERATION WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT

 

Spencer’s reserves the right to investigate and prosecute any suspected or actual violations of these Terms. Spencer’s may disclose any information as necessary or appropriate to satisfy any law, regulation, legal process, or government request.

California Transparency in Supply Chains Act Disclosure

Spencer's supports the right of all individuals to be free from slavery in the workplace. We abhor the practice of human trafficking and slavery and applaud efforts being made globally to eliminate this practice.

By accepting a purchase order or contract, every supplier certifies that it conducts business in compliance with local and national laws related to employment, and its failure to do so is a breach of the contract.

·       Internal accountability. Spencer's has adopted a policy for our employees and contractors that sets forth our expectations and standards with regard to the fair treatment of our employees. Spencer's policy specifically prohibits forced labor. Spencer's provides training on these standards for our employees and management, and we provide a confidential hotline for employees to report concerns related to their fair treatment and other employment related issues. We prohibit retaliation against anyone who in good faith reports a possible violation of our policy.

·       Training. All of our employees who have direct responsibility for international supply chain management receive internal and external training on slavery and human trafficking issues. Our international buying team receives this training in connection with every international buying trip, which typically occur several times each year.
