Other information valid for all licences

1. Licensing costs

License fees may be subject to any change in price at any time at the discretion of DFT.

 

2. License purchase terms

The licenses acquired together with the purchased design are valid and active from the date of the document sent by email after the purchase of the design(s).
It is recommended that you keep a copy of the email received as proof of validity of the purchase, although normally the relevant information can be found in the ordering section of the customer account (Licensee) on the DFT website.

The licensee is responsible for any taxes

If the licensee does not use the design, DFT will not be required to take it back or refund the license purchase.

 

3. Limitation and Exclusion of Liability

Please note that DFT assumes no responsibility for the use of the licensed designs.  In general no liability is assumed if such use infringes any third party’s property rights such as trademark rights, copyrights or registered designs, and no liability is assumed if the licensee by their use directly or indirectly creates damage to third parties of a material and/or moral nature.

With regard specifically to the “Jacquard Drawings license”, DFT does not assume any liability for any damages due to improper use of the designs and attachments. Jacquard designs, in case they are certified tested, certify only the absence of technical errors/defects and only in case of use with all conditions perfectly equal (same looms, same yarns, etc.). Therefore the licensee will be the only responsible for any damages (which should not happen with a proper use of the design), for the use of the designs.

IT IS RECOMMENDED AS A STRICT RULE TO ALWAYS TEST THE JACQUARD DESIGNS BEFORE A POSSIBLE MASSIVE PRODUCTION OR USE.

 

4. Termination of contract

Should DFT become aware of any unauthorized use, it must revoke the license and terminate the license agreement with immediate effect. In this case, DFT will not be required to refund the license fee and expressly reserves the right to claim damages.

 

5. Other information and rules

The licensee must inform any subcontractors or collaborators, or employees, of the origin of the drawings and the rules of use or non-use according to the type of license purchased.
Examples of subcontractors may be:
1. second persons from companies outside their own who will work on the design
2. other textile companies which will put the Jacquard designs into production on behalf of the licensee
3. its own external collaborators, employees of its own company, etc.
