1) Introduction

Thank you for visiting Hollywood Body Jewelry, a website dedicated to wholesale body jewelry, owned and operated by Spikes, Inc., a California corporation (the “Company,” or “we,” or “HBJ”). These Terms of Service (“Terms”) describe your rights and responsibilities regarding your use of hollywoodbodyjewelry.com (“Website”) and any other websites that we may later own or operate; any content, functionality, products, and services offered on or through the Website; and any other products and services we may later own or operate (collectively, the “Services”). These Terms are legally binding.

By accessing or using the Website or any of the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms and our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to any of these Terms, you must not access or use the Services. If you are accessing or using the Services on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that other entity to these terms. In that case, the terms “you” and “your” refer to that entity.

Changes may be made to these Terms and our other policies from time to time. We will let you know by posting the modified Terms or policies on the Website or through other communications. Your continued use of the Services will be deemed acceptance to amended or updated terms. You are encouraged to check this page from time to time and keep your contact information updated so that you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you.

If you are a minor, as used in these Terms meaning persons under 18 years of age, you must obtain the permission of your parent or guardian prior to using the Website. If you do not obtain such permission, do not use the Website. The Website is not intended for use by children under the age of 13.

2) Electronic Communications

When you visit the Website, you are communicating with HBJ electronically, and you consent to receiving communications from it electronically. The Company may provide you with use of email support services to enable you to communicate with the Company (“Communication Services”). You hereby acknowledge your consent to the following communications from the Company: messages posted to your Account on the Website, email from the Company regarding the Website or your use of the Services, and updates about changes to the Website.

3) Your Account

You may choose to not register for an account and access the Website as a guest user. However, you will not be able to access certain contents on the Website.

To gain access to the pricing information of our products, you must first create an individual user account (“Account”).

You agree that you will not create more than one Account or create an Account for anyone other than yourself without first receiving permission from the other person. In exchange for your access to the Website, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as prompted by our Account registration form; (b) maintain and promptly update such Account information, each time you log on and as far as possible, to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete; (c) certify that you are over the age of 13 and have the legal ability to consent to the Services or have your Parent/Guardian consent to use the Website; and (d) remain responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account password and username, and any other security information related to your Account at all times. If you provide any Account information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or the Company has reasonable grounds to suspect that such Account information is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, the Company reserves the right to terminate your Account. The Company will not be liable for any loss that you incur because of someone else accessing and using your Account, either with or without your knowledge.

You agree to immediately notify HBJ of any unauthorized use of your Account. You are fully and solely responsible for the security of your computer system and all activity on your Account, even if such activities were not committed by you. HBJ will not be liable for any losses or damage arising from unauthorized use of your Account, and you agree to indemnify and hold HBJ harmless for any improper or illegal use of your Account, unless you have notified HBJ via email to [email protected] that your Account has been compromised. We do not police for and cannot guarantee that we will learn of or prevent any inappropriate use of your Account. You should log out from your Account at the end of each use.

Your Account may not be sold or otherwise transferred to another person or entity and is limited to one single user per Account.

You may delete your account at any time, for any reason, by notifying us via e-mail to [email protected].

Any suspension or deletion of your Account shall not affect your obligations under these Terms (including but not limited to, indemnification, representations and warranties made by you, and limitation of liability), which by their sense and context are intended to survive such suspension or termination. On termination, you lose the right to access part of the Website that are only available for Registered Users.

You agree that all information you provide to register for an Account on the Website is governed by our Privacy Policy as available at https://www.hollywoodbodyjewelry.com/help/privacy-policy, and you consent to all actions we take with respect to your information consistent with our Privacy Policy.

4) General Payment Terms

Before you pay any fees for the products you'd like to purchase (“Products”), you will have an opportunity to review and accept the fees that you will be charged.

The Company reserves the right to determine pricing for Products at our sole discretion. Company will make reasonable efforts to keep pricing information published on the website up to date. We encourage you to check our website periodically for current pricing information. Company may change the fees for any Product at any time. Company, at its sole discretion, may make promotional offers with different features and different pricing to any of the Company's customers. These promotional offers, unless made to you, will not apply to you.

The Company will list shipping charges for your order upon checkout, and you must pay all shipping charges for the location of the address you provide. Please note that international packages may be subject to duties and taxes. You must also pay all tariff, import, customs, tax, and other charges applicable in your jurisdiction. The limits for duty-free packages are established by your local customs authorities. Please check your local customs website for more information. Due to restrictions from our financial partners or restrictions by law, Company does not ship to the following locations: Belarus, Burma, Congo, Côte d'Ivoire, Crimea, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Sudan/South Sudan, Syrian Arab Republic, Yemen, and Zimbabwe.

The Company will attempt in good faith to deliver your items in accordance with your order, but Company will not be responsible or liable for any delays or failure in such delivery. Company expressly reserves the right to effect delivery of any order in any number of separate shipments, and the modes of transport and carriers will be decided at the Company’s sole discretion. Your order will be delivered to the delivery address you specify when placing your order. If your delivery address is geographically remote or otherwise difficult to deliver to, it is possible that we may not be able to deliver there.

Company will not be responsible or liable for any delay or failure to deliver due to any cause which is unavoidable or beyond Company's reasonable control. In such cases, Company will have the right, at its option, without penalty or any liability for breach, to terminate all or any part of any order or to reschedule delivery within a reasonable time. If you waive the signature requirement for the delivery, the Company is not responsible for any lost packages. You agree that all purchased Products are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for the Products is passed to you upon our delivery to the carrier.

You authorize Company to charge all sums for the orders that you make, including all applicable taxes, to the payment method specified in your account. If you pay any fees with a credit card, Company may seek pre-authorization of your credit card account prior to your purchase to verify that the credit card is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to cover your purchase. If your order is placed on hold, we will reach out to you to ensure that the delays are minimal.

Company has partnered with certain third-party payment processors to process payments you make via the Website. The processing of payments in connection with your purchase will be subject to the terms, conditions, and privacy policies of the Payment Processor, in addition to our Privacy Policy and Terms. You agree to promptly review all charges processed through the Payment Processor, and immediately notify the Company to the extent you have any questions, concerns, or disputes with respect to any charges. We are not responsible for any errors by the Payment Processor.

The Company may suspend or terminate access to the Website for any account for which any amount is due but unpaid. In addition to the amount due for Products, a delinquent account will be charged with fees or charges that are incidental to any chargeback or collection of any unpaid amount, including collection fees.

5) Refund Policy

Improper usage or distribution of Product Photos may result in your account being blacklisted by the Company and prohibited from placing future orders.

9) Copyright Protection

We respect the intellectual property rights of others and request all users of the Website to do the same.

If you believe your copyright has been infringed on the Website, please notify us by email at [email protected] to submit a written notification, stating the location of the work claimed to be infringing.

Upon the receipt of written notification of infringement and subject to applicable copyright laws, The Company may remove or disable access to any such Content.

To be effective, the notification of claimed infringement must be a written communication that includes substantially the following:

  • A physical or electronic signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the right that is allegedly infringed;
  • Identification of the work and the pertinent exclusive legal right claimed to be infringed, or if multiple works or legal rights are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such elements;
  • Identification of the material that is claimed to infringe or to be the subject of infringing activity and the access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material, including the precise location on the Services where they discovered the work claimed to be infringing;
  • Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact them, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which you may be contacted;
  • A statement that they have a good faith belief that the use of the material, in the manner complained of, is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
  • A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that they are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of copyright that is allegedly infringed.

After receiving the communication, The Company may ask person who submitted the claimed infringement to provide further or supplemental information, prior to removing any Content on the Website, as we deem necessary to comply with applicable law. We may also provide the user who uploaded the allegedly infringing content, with the contact details of person who submitted the claimed infringement, in order for the former to be able to contact the latter and challenge the claim.

Counter Notification: If the Company removes Content that a user submitted for posting, pursuant to a notification of claimed infringement that we received, then that user has an opportunity to respond to the notification and our takedown by submitting a counter-notification. To be effective, the counter notification must be a written communication that includes substantially the following:

  • The user's physical or electronic signature;
  • Identification of the material to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before access to it was disabled;
  • A statement, under penalty of perjury, that the users has a good faith belief that the material was disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be disabled;
  • User's name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the user consents to the jurisdiction of the competent courts in any judicial district in which their address is located or in which they may be found, and that they will accept service of process from the person who provided notification or an agent of such person.

After receipt of a counter notification, we will provide the person who submitted the claimed infringement notification, with a copy of the counter notification.

We may then repost the removed material and cease disabling access to it within 10 to 14 business days following receipt of the counter notice, unless The Company first receives notice from the person who notified us of the claimed infringement that such person has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain such user from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the Website.

The Company reserves the right to deny or cancel any instance of your use of the Services, or terminate your Account altogether, if we determine, at our sole discretion, that you are a repeat infringer. A repeat infringer is a user who has been notified of infringing activity more than twice or a user whose uploaded Content was removed from the Services more than twice.

Any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that certain Content is infringing, or certain Content was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, that we may incur, if we are injured by such misrepresentation, as the result of our reliance upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the Content claimed to be infringing.
