JoySinger's IDs - TOS (Terms of Service)

Here you can find our TOS (Terms of Service) which all customers are bound to read, understand and accept anytime a purchase is made on or through this website.

Please read this page and all the pages linked hereon carefully and feel free to contact us for any questions or doubts, we will be glad to answer. Make sure to check as well the Shipping, Contact us, Restriction policy and placeholder data pages, whose provisions are part of our TOS even if not contained in this webpage.
At the moment you make a purchase on or through this website, you automatically declare of having read, understood and accepted our TOS. The following rules are for both your and our guarantee.

1. SALE POLICY

1.1. We adopt a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) policy. Every item's webpage contains a photo in full or in part of the actual item/s that is/are going to be manufactured in order to display the actual quality. Each item on this website has been manufactured by us.

1.2. Certain items may be subject to restrictions if they have to be shipped to certain destinations, as explained in the Restriction policy page or in single items' webpages: this may result in unavailable customization and/or apposition of a "REPLICA" stamp. The said page/s is/are part of this point. Due to security concerns, chips on PVC cards are "cleaned" real chips (meaning they have been depurated from the electronic elements that allow the writing of data on the chip) and a clear film layer is applied on all PVC cards in order to prevent the writing of data on strips, QR codes, barcodes, design modifications or other alterations to the cards; something that would make them fake IDs. We decline every responsibility from the use, misuse, use against the law or alteration of the said items. Our products are sold for collectible/prop purposes only. Restrictions' aim is to prevent any issue both on our and on customer's side. Customer will be held responsible for any alteration of the purchased items and/or of their use/misuse/use against the law.

1.3. By purchasing from this website you agree to defend, pay reasonable attorney fees and indemnify joysingersids.com, its agents, principals, shareholders, servants and employees as a result of any litigation, civil and or criminal that may arise from and/or may be related to any transaction carried out on or through the said website and/or may arise from/may be related to the use/misuse/alteration/use against the law of any purchased item/s.

1.4. We only have one e-mail address and it is displayed in the Contact us section. All questions, inquires, customization forms or else shall be directed to the said e-mail address. In general, all communications shall be addressed to the said e-mail address. Any communication addressed to any another e-mail address will not be considered and disregarded.

1.5. Our products can be customized (included prop items). If customization is not offered for a specific item, please send us an e-mail with your requests.

1.6. We reserve the right not to ship to certain locations. Should this happen, we will take care to refund the payment and let the customer know. Our exclusion list is not fixed and may vary during the time. If you want to make sure if we ship to your location, please contact us first.

1.7. If you have an interest to see reproduced IDs, credentials, etc. not available on this website, please send us an e-mail with a photo reference of the item you would like to see reproduced. We will send you a quotation so you can decide weather you wish to proceed or not. Quotations are free and do not imply a purchase.

1.8. We can make ID cards, credentials, papers, etc. any other items that are not available on this website. Any such item/s commissioned by the customer is/are made expressly for him/her. Those item/s is/are called "totally custom items". To that regard, we need then to distinguish several cases:
1.8.1. Customer provides own design of the item: item will not be shared nor will be sold on this website. This rule applies only when the whole design is a customer's creation. If customer provides a design which is a reproduction of a prop item the following point applies.
1.8.2. Customer requires us to replicate/provides the design of an item used in a movie/TV series (prop item): we reserve the right to sell the item.
1.8.3. Customer provides a photo of the item to replicate which is not a prop item: item will not be sold, unless there is a specific interest. In such a case we will ask customer's authorization in order to sell the item. If customer denies our request, the item will not be sold.
Please note that points 1.8.1-1.8.3 pertain only to the item's design, with the exclusion of any personal data submitted by the customer and present on the item.

1.9. We do not sell fake IDs and we do not authorize misuse/alteration/use against the law of any of our products. Customer has to check his/her local/state/national regulations pretaining purchase and possession of any item/s purchased on or through this website prior to making the purchase. Customer solely assumes all the responsibility deriving from the purchase. Customer is completely responsible from use/misuse/alteration/use against the law of any purchased item/s. Use against the law, misuse or alteration of ANY item is not authorized. The only authorized alteration is the one required due to theatrical/filmmaking/prop purposes (E.G.: an ID card used in a movie scene where any alteration is done because it is part of the plot).
1.9.1. To customers ordering items that have to be shipped to the USA and/or their possessions: a US Federal Law (HR 4827, Law #106-547) pertaining to badge possession, collecting and use came into force on 12/19/2000. This Federal Law makes the possession, shipping, and use of Police badges and ID cards and replica police badges and ID cards a crime if they are used for any purpose other than the following: 1. as a memento, or in a collection; 2. for decorative purposes; 3. for a dramatic presentation; 4. for any other recreational uses; 5. or for fan-collecting purpose. By ordering any of these items on or through this website, you affirm that you are at least 21 years of age and agree to lawful use of said items as explained.

1.10. Using forwarding mail services or providing a shipping address of a third party is allowed, but we do not authorize or encourage the adoption of those practices in order to bypass the restriction policy. Customer takes full and sole responsibility for violating this clause and exonerates ut from any consequence that may arise from such malicious use of the forwarding mail services.

1.11. The possession, carry, use of any item purchased on or through this website outside the destination country is prohibited. "Destination country" is defined as the country to which item/s, purchased on or thru this website, is/are being shipped. Customer takes full and sole responsibility for violating this clause and exonerates us from any consequence that may arise from the possession, carry, use of the purchased item/s outside the destination country.

1.12. Should we suspect that the customer is going to violate the above points 1.10. or 1.11., we reserve the right to ask the customer for a written statement containing the following information: a) description of the purchase; b) purpose of the purchase; c) declaration of customer's current address; d) declaration that, at the moment of the purchase, the customer does not reside in a country where the item/s purchased would be otherwise subject to restrictions; e) declaration that the item/s purchased will not be redirected to a country where the said item/s would be otherwise subject to restrictions; f) declaration that the information provided in the statement correspond to the truth; g) signature of the customer; h) date the document is signed; i) at least one proof of customer's current address (utility bill/payslip/driving license/national ID card/passport/...).
For the purpose of such statement it is not mandatory that the customer's current address is the same one to which the item/s purchased is/are going to be shipped: customer can have the item/s shipped to an address different to his/her current address (even in another country), as long as such address is not located in a country where the purchased item/s would be otherwise subject to restrictions.
You can download a sample statement here in case of necessity.
The order will be held until the statement has been successfully completed. Regarding refunds, please refer to points 3.3. and 3.4.

1.13. Customer cannot invoke ignorance of any part of the TOS as a justification for bypassing/not complaining with them. As stated at the top of this page, these TOS are automatically accepted at the moment a purchase is made on or through this website.

1.14. Should we have any doubt about any ordered item/s, at our discretion we may contact the customer in order to make sure whether we are about to manufacture and/or to ship the correct item or not. If customer did not contact us first (hence we do not have his/her e-mail) we will contact the customer at the e-mail address shown on the PayPal payment (when available). If our request is ignored or not answered, the order will be held until a positive reply is received.

A "customized item" is an item that is available (in-stock) on this website and that has been fully/partially customized with information provided by the customer (either by ordering the "customization" option where available or by express request of customer).

2.2 Only in-stock items can be returned. In-stock items are such items that are neither "customized items" nor "totally custom items".

3.3.2. Item purchased is an "in-stock" item and has been already shipped: customer will have to start a standard return procedure (see above "return policy"). Once the item has been received by us without damage in case the item had originally no damage or with the same degree of damage as it was received by the customer him/herself, a refund will be issued (refund will not include original shipping cost, shipping cost paid by customer to return the item/s and PayPal fees).

3.8. In order to deliver our products in the best shape, all items are encased in cardboard and/or bubble wrap envelopes placed within the main shipping envelope and all shipped orders are provided with a tracking number, but we decline any responsibility for any mishandling caused by the postal services.

4. CUSTOMIZATION PROCESS

4.1. "Customized items" require side-by-side work with the customer. If the customer does not provide required information his/her order is held until those data are provided. The procedure applies as well to "totally custom items" described in point 1.8.

4.2. Should we need any additional information or have any doubt, we will contact the customer. If the customer did not contact us first (hence we do not have his/her e-mail) we will contact the customer at the e-mail address shown on the PayPal payment (when available). The order will be held until an answer is received.

4.3. Once customer provides the required data, a graphic preview of customized item/s is sent for approval. Preview's aim is to show customer if information provided are correct and/or if have been typed correctly. The preview is not a representation of actual manufactured item but a computer generated image, therefore it differs in look from actual, manufactured items. Actual item/s' quality can be seen on its/their website's photographs.

4.4. Graphic preview is sent to the customer only after payment is received.

4.5. Once the graphic preview is sent, customer can require to edit it. If changes are requested, a new preview is sent. This phase contniues as long as customer wishes to change information shown on the item/s' preview. Data shown in the graphic preview are typed in the same way customer types them in the customization form/s (or communicates them via e-mail), including word spelling, uppercase and lowercase letters, dates, numbers, punctuation marks. Customer must express his/her will to edit the information before giving the approval. Any discrepancy with the data provided or request to edit information must be submitted before giving the approval.
4.5.1. Customer can request a modification of the item's design. Where possible, this may be subject to an extra fee depending on the complexity of the edit required. Such modifications are not refundable in any case once they are made.

4.6. Once customer is satisfied with the graphic preveiw, his/her explicit approval is requested to proceed with manufacturing of the item/s. We MAY ask for confirmation of approval in case of doubt. Approval can be expressed in formal ways as: "I approve the preview", with simple declarations of will such as "ok" or in any other way that can be considered approval such as "looks great!". Once the approval is given, item/s will be produced and there will be no more chance to change the provided information. If customer wishes to change something, he/she needs to do it before giving the approval.

4.7. At the same time the first preview is sent to the customer, a message summarizing the above rules is included in the e-mail.

4.8. If customer notices that the preview deceipts a type of item different from the one purchased, customer must communicate it before giving the approval.

4.9. Violation of any of the procedimental rules does not allow customer to request return/refund/re-manufacturing of the item/s purchased. Specifically, return/refund/re-manufacturing of the item/s purchased is not possible if:
4.9.1. Customer's complaints come from ignoranace of the TOS.
4.9.2. Customer decides to change one or more information provided after the approval/once item is produced.
4.9.3. Customer notices one or more information are misspelled, incorrect or different from his/her will after the approval/once item is produced.
4.9.4. Customer requests to cancel the order for any reason after a "customized item" or a "totally custom item" is produced or wants to return it (see the above Section 3.).

4.10. There may be a time frame between customer's approval and manufacturing of item/s. In such time frame customer can still express his/her will to edit. If we get to know this before manufacturing the item/s, we will provide to accomodate customer's will, otherwise the above rules apply. In other words, if we read the e-mail on time we can still edit the information or change type of item, but this is only a matter of luck. If approval is given, then customer submits a request to edit data, but item has already been produced, customer will have no right to demand a return/refund/re-manufacturing of the item/s purchased.
