TheNobo provides an online shipping form that can be printed and applied to the Product packaging for shipment to Company.
5. Required Releases from Users
If the Product contains any material or elements that are not owned by the User and/or which are subject to the rights of third parties, the User is responsible for obtaining, prior to submission of the Listing, any and all releases and consents necessary to permit the exhibition and use of the Listing in the manner set forth in these Terms and Conditions.
Upon Company’s request, each User must be prepared to provide (within seven calendar days of receipt of Company’s request) a signed written license from the third party owner, if any, of any private property included in the Listing, authorizing User to distribute, display, and sell the Product via TheNobo. Failure to provide such releases upon request may result in termination of User account.
For the purposes of these Terms and Conditions, the User will be deemed to be in receipt of Company’s request or notification, (a) in the event that Company sends the request by postal mail, five business days after the request was sent by Company, or (b) in the event that Company sends the request by email, on the day that the email was sent by Company.
6. Determination of User
The person uploading the Listing will be deemed the User. The User is the one person who is the authorized account holder of the email address and payment information used to register at the Company. Should multiple persons access the same email account and a dispute arises regarding the identity of the User, the authorized account holder of said e-mail account at the time of any transaction will be considered the User. “Authorized Account Holder” is defined as the natural person who is assigned an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider or other organization which is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses or the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address. If any group elects to collaborate on a Listing, they are required to designate one (1) person as the agent of the group in order to engage in transactions, and jointly agree to these Terms and Conditions.
By submitting Listings, all Users grant an irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide non-exclusive license to the Company to reproduce, distribute, and display images of the Listing in connection with the promotion, sale and/or trade of the Product. Users consent to the Company doing or omitting to do any act that would otherwise infringe the User’s “moral rights” in their Listings. Display or publication of any Listing on TheNobo website does not constitute a guarantee of sale or trade.

Any litigation or arbitration arising out of or in connection with these rules or your use of Company’s services must be commenced within one (1) year after the cause of action arose, or it will be permanently barred.
Any provision of these Terms and Conditions which is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall be removed to the minimum extent required in that jurisdiction without in any way invalidating the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions. In that event the court is hereby directed by the parties to replace the legally invalid provisions with legally valid provisions which will, from an economic viewpoint, most nearly and fairly approach the eliminated provisions. The unenforceability of any provision in a given jurisdiction shall not make that provision unenforceable in any other jurisdiction.
Users agree that the Company has the sole right to decide all matters and disputes arising from these Terms and Conditions and that all decisions of Company shall be final and binding and not subject to challenge or appeal.
