Campaign/Story Submitter/Creator Agreement


I Heart Garments would like to thank you for sharing your heartfelt story with us. We appreciate your reaching out to us and applaud your efforts in raising awareness for your cause. The following is an agreement between you, the Story Submitter, and I Heart Garments, so that together we can achieve the most good for your cause. By submitting your story to I Heart Garments, you accept the terms of this agreement.

Your Story is Authentic and True, and Your Intentions are Sincere
You affirm that all parts of the story you are submitting are true to the best of your knowledge, and you agree to notify us immediately if at any point in time you realize the facts of your story have changed or were incorrect, or that your submission was incomplete, or that important details were left out, regardless of whether or not those facts are material to the story’s overall message or theme.

You affirm that the foundation, charity or cause for which you are raising money is, to the best of your knowledge, legitimate in that it raises or donates funds, raises awareness of, or contributes to the research for your story’s cause. You agree to notify us immediately if at any point in time you have any reason to question the legitimacy of the foundation, charity or cause.

The submission of your story does not guarantee that we will select your story for a campaign.
While we appreciate all story submissions, we are only able to run a limited number of campaigns at any given time.  Our team will select stories for our current campaigns based on a number of internal factors, and our decision to not use your story for a campaign does not mean that we do not value or appreciate your story. If your story has been selected, you will be contacted by an I Heart Garments team member so that we can talk about the next steps in our process. If your story is not selected at this time, please feel free to re-submit your story in the future.

If we select your story for a campaign, you agree we have limited rights to your story.
If your heartfelt story is selected for an I Heart Garments campaign, we have the right to use your story for limited purposes, including but not limited to marketing, video production, and t-shirt design. We may write content, or create and/or edit video footage, based on your heartfelt story, and we may display such material or footage on our website and in any other marketing materials – print, electronic or digital. Any editorial work in the sharing of your story, whether by written content or by video will ultimately be decided by the I Heart Garments team. Once your story’s campaign has concluded, we reserve the right to run your story and campaign again at a later date.

By submitting your story to I Heart Garments, you grant us a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sub-licensable, and transferrable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, modify, display, and perform all parts of your story in connection with the site and our business. This may include, for example, for promoting awareness of your campaign and our site.

We promise that we will neither sell nor give your story or your information to any third parties, at any time, without your knowledge and express consent.

By submitting a story to I Heart Garments, you agree to cooperate with our team throughout our entire process.
The ultimate success of every campaign is driven by our ability to successfully communicate your heartfelt story to a larger audience, by telling your story on our website and developing t-shirts based on your story. For these reasons, your collaboration as a story submitter is essential. If your story is selected for a campaign, you agree that you will cooperate and collaborate with us in the campaign development process. This may mean, for example, responding to our inquiries in a timely manner or providing additional information in a timely manner if and when we request it.

Design of the garments and campaign for your story will ultimately be determined by I Heart Garments team members.
We value and welcome your input in the design of the garments for your story’s campaign. Our Design Team will keep in mind any colors, symbols or other graphics which may be especially meaningful to you in the telling and sharing of your story; however, garment design— including colors, graphics, and style—will ultimately be determined by our Design Team. Additionally, the price point of the garments and the number of garments manufactured for sale will be decided by I Heart Garments, based on internal factors and your description of your social network. Our goal is to make your campaign as successful as possible, and we will work with you while determining the best path to that success.

I Heart Garments will retain all rights and ownership of the designs and content produced for the campaign.
You agree that I Heart Garments will retain the rights to any garment design produced for your story’s campaign. You may only copy, reproduce, prepare derivative works of, display, transmit, distribute, or replicate the design for the purpose of advertising and otherwise publicizing your story’s campaign while it is currently running through I Heart Garments. Any editorial content, video footage, or marketing materials created by us for your story’s campaign will be owned by I Heart Garments and may only be used to advertise or otherwise publicize your story’s campaign while it is currently running through I Heart Garments. You may not, in any circumstance, copy, reproduce, prepare derivative works of, display, transmit, distribute, or replicate any garment design, editorial content, video footage, or marketing materials created by us for monetary gain.

The design created for your garment is to be used solely for the purpose of your story’s campaign through I Heart Garments, and may not, for example, be used as a logo or branding for your cause, charity, foundation, or other organization without a separate and explicit agreement between I Heart Garments, the I Heart Garments designer(s) responsible for the creation of that design, and an authorized representative of your cause, charity or foundation.

By submitting your story to I Heart Garments for possible selection, you are agreeing to the above terms.

I Heart Garments is committed to the sharing of extraordinary stories and the good done by everyday people. Together, we hope to make your story’s campaign a success and contribute to yet another amazing cause.
