JOOM3D.COM –"The Place To Be for 3D™"

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Last updated: September 2015)

The following are terms and conditions of a legal agreement between you and JOOM3D.COM™, JOOM3D.COM Technologies Inc. and its affiliates (collectively, "JOOM3D.COM", "we", "us" or "our"). These terms and conditions govern your use of the services we offer ("JOOM3D.COM Services" or "Site Services") and the use of www.JOOM3D.COM (the "JOOM3D.COM Website" or "the Site, or "Website").

By using the JOOM3D.COM Website, you acknowledge to have read, understood and agree to be bound by these "Terms and Conditions"  and to comply with all applicable laws and regulations. If you do not agree with these Terms and Conditions, you should not use the Site Services and Website.

JOOM3D.COM Services

The JOOM3D.COM Services are made up of the many diverse services provided through the Site. One of the Services enables you to upload virtually any 3D file to the Site and view it in 3D.

After registration on the Site, any User can upload any file that they have created, either for private storage, or to make it available for other Site Qualified Users (Designers) to download and/or modify.  Users can also upload files representing 3D objects such as machine parts and components that have been created by rendering with a 3D scanner.  The great synergy of the Site occurs when Designers from all over the world are free to build on each other's work. 

The Site offers millions of user generated, and 3D Scanned designs in thousands of different user-generated categories available for instant download for free, or for a very small charge.  If you want to "print out" or "actualize" a particular 3D model, you can download it to the electronic device of your choice and then send it to your own 3D Printer/Additive Manufacturing Facility.  Or, if you are not yet an owner of such a device, you can, for an additional charge, forward it to a third party to have it manufactured for you.  The site offers you a utility that allows you to locate the 3D Printer that is closest to your location. 

Further,  JOOM3D.COM offers other services and community features through the Site including user Forums, Blogs, Tutorials, Webinars  etc. where you can get in touch with other users, learn about various aspects of the 3D world and share your designs and experiences.

 

Account Terms

You must be at least eighteen (18) years of age to use this Service. If you are under 18, you may use JOOM3D.COM only with involvement of a parent, guardian or authorized teacher/instructor. You must provide current, accurate identification, contact, and other information that may be required as part of the registration process and/or continued use of the Service. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Service password and account, and are responsible for all activities that occur there under.

We reserve the right to refuse service to or terminate service of anyone at any time without notice for any reason.

1) Manufacturability of Models

This is a User Generated Site.  If a model is available through the Site, the basic assumption is that it can be produced and then used for the intended purpose. However, since the Site does not check each design for consistency, accuracy or manufacturability, there may be some designs that contain errors that make them unsuitable for the intended purpose.  All sales are final.  Each user understands that when pressing the "download" button for a particular design, they are accepting the file "as is."  The Site takes absolutely no responsibility for omissions or errors in user generated designs that may make them unsuitable, defective or unusable.  Users downloading 3D Designs intended to be manufactured into components for various applications are advised to seek the advice of qualified technical professionals to assure that the components will perform as intended and will be able to withstand the operational stresses placed on them during the intended application(s).    

2) Liability

The Site holds absolutely no responsibility for the uses, intended or not, that downloaded and manufactured designs are put to.  Such uses, and all the subsequent consequences arising therefrom, are entirely the responsibility of the person who downloaded and then manufactured the design. 

3) Prices for Designs

The prices displayed for each design are only indications and are valid only for the moment that they are displayed.  JOOM3D.COM reserves the right to change prices for user uploaded designs without prior notice.

 

4) Payment and Price

The amount indicated for each design includes the fee for use of the Site.  All prices are indicated in either U.S. dollars (USD) or Euro (EUR). If you do not pay in USD or EUR, the currency conversion will be handled by our payment service provider.

You can initiate your payment for your order via PayPal.com or bank transfer. If you chose to pay using PayPal you will be directed to the PayPal.com website. In case you chose to pay by bank transfer you will receive the payment instructions via email from JOOM3D.COM after confirmation of your order.

The Site shall not be responsible in any way for the payment process done via the PayPal.com website. Users are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the terms of use of those services offered by PayPal.

The minimum payment to buy credit on the Site is $1.  One Site Credit is equal to $0.01.  Each time a user downloads a design from the site, they will have their credit reduced by an amount corresponding to the cost of the desired design.  When the user's credit falls to zero, they will be asked to buy new credits using the PayPal service.

Each time a user's design is downloaded, their account will be credited with eighty percent (80%) of the income generated by the sale.  When a user's account reaches a minimum of One Thousand (1000) Credits, this can be exchanged for dollar currency using the user's PayPal account. 

Each user's account will contain a full accounting of all of their status on the Site, design uploads, views, downloads and financial transactions. 

5) Acceptance

Each downloaded design is accepted "as is" and all sales are final.  By pressing the "Download" button, the user is accepting all of the terms and conditions associated with the use of the Site. 

Warranty

JOOM3D.COM warrants only that the model manufactured by you will substantially meet the features of the indicated 3D model within the limitations of the 3D printing technology.
