Art Launch will set and access our own cookies on your computer to allow you
to make purchases and interact with the site. We also use web beacons to
gather anonymous, aggregated statistical information (i.e. unique hits, page
views, etc.) about our website traffic.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Art Launch may share information collected by us with third parties to help
process your order (e.g. shipping companies, credit card processors, etc.) or
to provide statistical and demographic analysis or measure advertising
effectiveness for Art Launch to help us and our business partners provide you
with better services and offerings. Data is collected and your information will
be shared with third parties for targeted advertising.
Art Launch will not share, rent, lease, or sell your personal information (e.g. your email address, your credit card information, your name, your address, etc.) to any third party for their independent use or benefit. However, in the event that Art Launch is acquired by or sold to another company, we reserve our right to include your personally identifiable information among the assets transferred.
Missions will usually launch once a week on Friday. Day of mission launch and duration is subject to change, and can do so without notice.
Information on upcoming missions (mission brief) will be released and made
available to artists no less than one week prior to mission pre-launch. Briefs
will contain information regarding commission percent for said mission,
product specifications, instructions for submission, etc. Artists must follow the
submission instructions and may be required to provide the mockup for their
submitted product. We reserve the right to delete a submission if instructions
are not followed for the submission or mockup process. Artists can submit an
unlimited number of designs for each mission. Submissions will be subject to
a pre-launch period. During this time, each submission is provided the
opportunity to achieve a specified number of pre-sales (this number is
determined on a per mission basis and can change from mission to mission).
If the submission does not reach the specified number of pre-sales during
pre-launch, it will be cancelled. Submissions that achieve the specified number or
more will then launch and go live for the rest of the week (or designated time
frame). Artists are responsible for promoting their submissions. The artist will
receive a commission per sale. Please see Section 5 regarding Fees and
Customers will be able to pre-order items starting with the pre-launch.
Customers will not be charged until the mission launches (goes live). If the
mission does not achieve its sales goal during the pre-launch, the mission will
be cancelled and the customer will not have been charged. Once the mission
has achieved its goal and launches, the product is then expected to be
produced and the payment method provided by the customer will be charged. We
don’t anticipate any goods set for production to not be produced, but if this happens
you will receive a full refund back to the payment method used for the order.
The customer will provide payment information at the time of the pre-order but
they will not be charged until the mission has reached its goal during
pre-launch. In some cases we’ll reserve the charge on your card. Art Launch
and its payment partners may authorize or reserve a charge on your credit
card (or whatever payment method you use) for any amount up to the full
price, at any time between the pre-order and the collection of funds. You can cancel
or change your order (pre-order) at any time until the last 24 hours of the mission.
We can not accept changes or cancellations during the last 24 hours of the
mission. We will send a shipping notification once the product from a completed
mission has shipped. The Estimated Shipping Date is only an approximate date.
5. Fees and Commissions
There is no fee to submit a design for a mission. The artist will receive a
commission per sale if the product achieves its sales goal during pre-launch. If the sales goal is not met during pre-launch, the submission is cancelled and the artist does not receive a commission for that design. This commission is based on the product (we take into account manufacturing costs, packing labor, etc.) and will vary per mission. For example, if the asking price for the item is $10, and the stated commission is 20%, then the artist will receive $2 per sale (AFTER the pre-launch goal is reached). Once an artist enters a submission for a mission, they are agreeing to the commission stated for said mission. The artist is required to provide accurate payment information so we can issue payment when due.
