Terms of Service

These are our Terms of Service that you Automatically Agree to when Using our Site and other Services.

Thoroughly read and understand them before engaging with us.

Slicks Inc. and parties doing business with Slicks Inc. automatically agree and understand the following when using our website, placing orders, getting quotes, or buying Slicks Inc. apparel anywhere, anytime, and through any platform. You are also agreeing to the terms as they are updated over time as they are amended.

First and foremost, Slicsk Inc. reserves the rights to the Slicks Inc. name, branding, logos, identities, photos, videos, audio clips, etc. This includes copyright, common law trademark, and trademarks for the names, slogans, logos, and art both domestically in the U.S.A. and internationally. (Including but not limited to the Slicks Inc. Sun logo, the text logos, the “Get Slicks” phrase, etc.) All other trademarks are the sole property of their respective companies. All use is prohibited.

You are acknowledging that Slicks Inc. does wholesale merchandising, decorating, merchandise supplying, vending, and also works factory direct where in such moments Slicks Inc. will be referred to and treated as the manufacturer of the goods. Slicks Inc. will only have Slicks Inc. branded manufacturing tags for orders where Slicks Inc. is handling the full designing of and/ or manufacture of the goods. Goods refer to whatever item(s) the client in question is ordering.

The website is protected to the maximum extent by domestic property rights and intellectual property rights law and international laws/ treaties. Everything you see on our website is either rightfully owned by Slicks Inc. or its affiliates respectively. Any reproduction of our or our affiliate’s logos, intellectual property, videos, images, etc. is prohibited.

Users acknowledge that they are responsible for whatever photos, videos, info, data, profiles, messages, sounds, or other material, etc.. that they submit to the website and Slicks Inc. Any submissions are treated as non-confidential. Clients of the Slicks Inc. apparel and wholesale side acknowledge that Slicks Inc. and affiliates will be using their brand assets and other intellectual property to create mock-ups and other physical and/ or virtual designs and samples.  All of the supplied intellectual property remains under the rights and ownership of their original creators. Users and clients acknowledge that all preparation materials, visuals, sketches, videos, images, audio, and other physical or electronic files remain the property of Slicks Inc. and affiliates. If Slicks Inc. makes you a custom garment or merchandise design and you do not decide to proceed with an order you are relinquishing your rights to take that design elsewhere. These files and assets that belong to Slicks Inc and affiliates made be sold to our clients for a premium price. The assets will remain on file with Slicks Inc. for a limited amount of time before they are permanently disposed of. Slicks Inc. will not be liable for requested mock-ups, files, data, etc after the disposal period has been reached. Your files will be kept for no longer than up to 1 year (12 months). If an order is made files will be kept indefinitely unless some other force acts upon the storage systems. Clients relinquish any rights to take legal action against Slicks Inc. in the event of data loss due to 3rd part interference, natural disasters, acts of god, drive failure, or other damaging acts.

In addition, clientele and customers are relinquishing any rights to take legal actions against Slicks Inc. and affiliates due to delays and errors in their orders that are caused by natural disasters, acts of god, acts of mother nature, shipping delays not caused by Slicks Inc, and other errors not caused by Slicks Inc. or affiliates. Slicks Inc. is always willing to work out any issues and expects all involved parties to make good-faith efforts to resolve any and all issues that arise before resorting to litigation.

Furthermore, Slicks Inc. will not accept any refunds for any reason unless explicitly stated otherwise in writing. Users are accepting the responsibility for any and everything that’d warrant a potential refund or return. This includes but is not limited to wrong sizes, late delivery, missing deliveries, regret due to purchasing, damaged merchandise, etc. You are agreeing to put in a good-faith effort to resolve all issues with the applicable parties before seeking resolutions with Slicks Inc. This means going to the post office with complaints about missing packages before contacting us at Slicks Inc. These terms also cover the entirety of the Slicks Inc. custom apparel, branded merchandise, and other vending/ supplier services. Slicks Inc. will work with clients on any orders that left Slicks Inc. without proper quality control checks or blemishes and damages determined to be the fault of Slicks Inc. and affiliates.

Slicks will not refund any orders made by our competitors. (The definition of ‘competitor’ in this instance is any other graphic design, apparel design,  wholesale merchandiser, decorator, seamstress, printer, etc that works in the B2B, Retail, Wholesale, or other capacity in this industry.)  If you are a competitor and purchase goods from us without first writing to us, texting, calling, DMing, etc… about your intentions then it will be assumed that you are making a bad-faith attempt at stealing trade secrets and/or committing espionage against Slicks and our affiliates. If you repeatedly make bad-faith attempts at mimicking our work and copying our styles, designs, die lines, and/ or any other proprietary method then we will reserve the right to escalate the matter to the courtroom. Continuing on, repeated attempts to hide your identity and have us ship our items to your house, company HQ, or manufacturing facility without first contacting us will be seen as harassment and will be responded to with litigation in the form of an HRO, DNCO, Cease and Desist, and/ or other forms of Trespass orders. We take these issues extremely seriously.

Feedback submissions are considered non-confidential and Slicks Inc. reserves the right to share and distribute the submitted feedback data in any way they want. Slicks Inc. is not responsible for and blatantly discourages the sending of anything confidential or prohibited to us via any means.

You agree not to transmit to Slicks Inc. any information or post, email, or otherwise make any Submission of User Content that: (i) is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, invasive of another’s privacy, or is harmful to minors in any way; (ii) is pornographic or depicts a human being engaged in actual sexual conduct; (iii) harasses, degrades, intimidates or is hateful toward an individual or group of individuals on the basis of religion, gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, age, or disability; (iv) impersonates any person or entity, including, but not limited to, a Slicks Inc. employee, or falsely states or otherwise misrepresents your affiliation with a person or entity; (v) that includes personal or identifying information about another person without that person’s explicit consent; (vi) is false, deceptive, misleading, or deceitful; (vii) infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights of any party, or Submissions that you do not have a right to make available under any law or under contractual or fiduciary relationships; (viii) that constitutes or contains “affiliate marketing,” “link referral code,” “junk mail,” “spam,” “chain letters,” “pyramid schemes,” or unsolicited commercial advertisement; (ix) constitutes or contains any form of advertising or solicitation if posted in areas of the website which is not designated for such purposes or emailed to Vans users who have not indicated in writing that it is ok to contact them about other services, products or commercial interests; (x) advertises any illegal service; (xi) contains software viruses or any other computer code, files or programs designed to interrupt, destroy or limit the functionality of any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment; (xii) disrupts the normal flow of dialogue with an excessive amount of Submissions (flooding attack) to the Website, or that otherwise negatively affects other users’ ability to use the Website; (xiii) that employs misleading email addresses, or forged headers or otherwise manipulated identifiers in order to disguise the origin of Submissions transmitted through the Website.

We reserve the right, without prior notification, to limit the order quantity of any item and/or refuse service to any customer for any reason not prohibited by law.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL SLICKS INC. BE LIABLE FOR DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (EVEN IF SLICKS INC. HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), RESULTING FROM YOUR MISUSE OF THE WEBSITE, FROM YOUR INABILITY TO USE THE WEBSITE, OR FROM THE INTERRUPTION, SUSPENSION, MODIFICATION, ALTERATION, OR TERMINATION OF THE WEBSITE.

This Website is operated, in whole or in part, from the United States. User access to this Website is governed by all applicable federal, state, and local laws. All information available on the Website is subject to U.S. export control laws and may also be subject to the laws of the country where you reside. All Slicks Inc. products and publications are commercial in nature. Slicks Inc. does not make any representations regarding the legality of access to or use of this Website or the information contained therein from other countries. Access in countries where the information contained herein or the products sold through this website are illegal is prohibited. Users who access this Website from outside of the United States do so at their own risk and are responsible for compliance with applicable US export and local country laws. By using this Website, regardless of where you live in the world, you consent to have your personal data transferred to and processed, and collected in the United States in compliance with the privacy policy.

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to the Website and our services, any dealings with us and our customer service agents, any representations made by us, and/or your use of our websites (including without limitation claims relating to the breach of the Terms of Use, Privacy Policy or the unauthorized disclosure of personally identifiable information) will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert individual claims in small claims court if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual basis. This includes any dispute or claim you assert against our sister-brands, subsidiaries, affiliates and assigns. This also includes any dispute or claim that arose before you accepted these Terms of Use, regardless of whether prior versions of the Terms of Use required arbitration.

Unless you proceed with a small claims action, the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law will apply. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Terms of Use as a court would. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration WE BOTH HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.

ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. Unless we both agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative, consolidated or class proceeding. If the requirements of this paragraph are found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void except for the waiver of any right to a jury trial described in the previous paragraph. P

Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) rules, except as provided in this section. If your total claims seek less than $10,000, we will reimburse you for filing fees you pay to the AAA and will pay the arbitrator’s fees, unless the arbitrator determines your claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.

If a dispute arises we strongly encourage you to first contact our Customer Service Department before starting arbitration or filing a claim in small claims court. We value our relationships with our customers and will try to resolve your claims informally and quickly.

If your dispute is not resolved by Customer Service, before beginning arbitration, please send written notice describing the claim to:

Slicks Inc

ATTN: General Counsel

717 Belmont st

Albert Lea, mn 56007

If the claim has not been resolved within 30 days of sending the notice you may then commence an arbitration proceeding. The arbitration will be conducted by the AAA under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules and forms are available at www.adr.org or by calling 877-495-4185.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, these Terms of Use and any claim or dispute arising out of or relating to our products and services, these Terms of Use, the privacy policy, or your use of the Website, will be governed by and construed in accordance with the State of Minnesota, without regard to its choice of law provisions, and not by the 1980 U.S. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. Except as otherwise prohibited by law, any claim or dispute must be brought within one (1) year from the date the cause of action arises. Any claim or dispute arising out of or relating to our products and services, these Terms of Use, the Privacy Policy or your use of the Website shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of state or federal courts in Freeborn County, in the State of Minnesota and you hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts. If any provision of these Terms of Use are held to be unlawful, or for any reason, unenforceable, that provision will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions. These Terms of Use and the Privacy Policy constitute the entire agreement between you and Slicks Inc. with respect to the subject matter of the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.
