RAW&SILK is a marketplace where:
Content owners/creators (“Designers”) may make their content and/or product specifications available for use in connection with the sale of certain products; and
Product manufacturers (“Makers”) can offer, sell, and/or fulfill their products to Users of this Site.
To help you distinguish among the different types of transactions available on this Site, RAW&SILK uses the following labels.
“Made and Sold by RAW&SILK”: This means RAW&SILK is both selling the product to you and making it.
“Made by [Maker] and Sold by RAW&SILK”: This means RAW&SILK is selling this product, but the product is made by a third party Maker.
“Made and Sold by [Maker]”: This means that an independent Maker is both making the product and selling it to you via the RAW&SILK Maker Platform. The process for placing an order is the same as for products sold by RAW&SILK, but RAW&SILK is only facilitating the transaction. RAW&SILK has no control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the products sold to you by a Maker, the truth or accuracy of the listings, or the ability of the Maker to sell that product. RAW&SILK does not pre-screen Makers or the content or information provided by Makers for these products, and cannot ensure that a Maker will actually complete a transaction. RAW&SILK does not transfer legal ownership of these products from Maker to User, and cannot guarantee the true identity of User. RAW&SILK encourages you to communicate directly with potential transaction partners through the tools available on the Site. You understand and agree that RAW&SILK is only a venue for these transactions, and as such, you enter into these transactions at your own risk.
“Designed by [Designer]”: This label informs you of the Designer who has published its designs for use on products sold on the Site. Designers represent that they have the right to publish their designs for use on the products they select, and RAW&SILK makes no representation as to the truthfulness of any such representations.
You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for the creation and compilation of your Content, and that neither RAW&SILK nor any other party involved with the production of any product incorporating such Content assumes that responsibility. RAW&SILK’s production of any product depicting your Content does not indicate that RAW&SILK approves of the Content, that the Content obeys all applicable laws, or that you are absolved of any liability or harm arising from the use of the Content.
You agree that you are responsible for actions and communications undertaken under your account. RAW&SILK takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any Content uploaded or otherwise transmitted by or to you or by or to any third-party, or for any mistakes, defamation, slander, libel, omissions, falsehoods, infringement, obscenity, pornography or profanity you or a third party may encounter. You agree to waive any claims against RAW&SILK and its affiliates, contractors, agents and employees for losses, damages and injuries which are based on or relate to communications, Content or materials on the Site. You agree to indemnify RAW&SILK and its affiliates from all claims and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, which claims are based on or arise from your violation of any of the provisions of this Agreement.
You agree that you will use this Site and any products and RAW&SILK Custom Stamps, ordered on this Site in accordance with all applicable United States federal, state and local laws, statutes, regulations and ordinances and will not take any action that harms or violates the rights of any person or entity.

Dispute Resolution and Release
These terms and conditions and your relationship with RAW&SILK shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of California, without resort to its conflict of law provisions. Any dispute relating in any way to your visit to the Site or to the products you purchase through the Site shall be submitted to confidential binding arbitration in the City of San Mateo, Northern California for the maximum judgment enforceable, except that to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate our intellectual property rights, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of California. You hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts of California. Arbitration under this Agreement shall be conducted pursuant to the existing Commercial Arbitration Rules at the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim is initiated in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial.
You and RAW&SILK agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the county of San Mateo, Northern California.
If you have a dispute with one or more users or Designers you release us (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which states: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
If any provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or unenforceable under any applicable statute or rule of law, such provision shall be deemed amended to achieve as nearly as possible the same economic effect as the original provision and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall in no way be affected or impaired.
Death or Incapacity
In the unfortunate event that a member of our Maker and Designer community who is a natural person dies or becomes permanently incapacitated, RAW&SILK will take all necessary steps to work with their successors and assigns. However, RAW&SILK will need the following documentation from such deceased or incapacitated community member’s successors, assigns or their legal representatives for verification purposes:

Our community is the most important part of RAW&SILK. All registered members are part of our community and we value everyone. RAW&SILK has established multiple ways for members to interact with one another on the Site, including but not limited to forums, our blog and other social media channels. Please remember that these are public spaces, so use common sense when sharing personal information. RAW&SILK’s role is to facilitate open discussion and support our community through constructive communication. We have some general rules for community conduct, and some spaces have additional rules.
Treat one another with respect. There is a real person behind each name.
Harassing, insulting, embarrassing or abusing other members is unacceptable.
The community spaces are not the appropriate channel to express disputes with others.
Specific transactions and/or feedback should not be discussed in public community spaces. Instead, contact RAW&SILK privately if you need help with a transaction.
Do not publicly post another person’s private information without their explicit consent (for example: email, conversations, letters, phone numbers, addresses or full names).
Violating community policies may result in suspension or termination of certain privileges including account termination.
