Thank you for your interest in our brands and products. Please read carefully these terms and conditions of use (“Terms”) before accessing any Fiskars Group internet site (“Sites”). The Sites are published and maintained by Fiskars Finland Oy Ab or its group companies (collectively “Fiskars”). By accessing the Sites you acknowledge that you have read, understood and agreed to the Terms and all related documents. If you do not agree to the Terms, do not access the Sites.
1. Intellectual Property
The content of the Sites (including but not limited to text, images and audiovisual elements) is in its entirety the property of Fiskars or our content suppliers by virtue of relevant copyright laws and treaties. All rights reserved. Reproduction, transfer, distribution or storage of part or all of the content in any form without the prior written permission of Fiskars is prohibited, apart from the exceptions mentioned in these Terms.
The Fiskars logotype, the corporate symbol therein, as well as registered and unregistered trademarks, brand names, product names and other possible immaterial rights and intangible assets (individually and collectively “Marks”) are the property of Fiskars. Access to the Sites cannot indirectly or otherwise be construed as conferring licensing or other rights to use any Marks without the prior written consent of Fiskars. Your misuse of the Marks displayed on the Sites is strictly prohibited.
Fiskars grants you a limited license to access and make personal use of the Sites and permits you to store on your device or print extracts from the Sites, but only for your private use. The content of the Sites may be used for information purposes only and in such a manner that does not harm the reputation of Fiskars, its brands or products. Information provided on the Sites must not be modified without the written permission of Fiskars. Individual documents on the Sites may be subject to additional terms indicated in those documents. You must not transfer the materials to any other person unless you give them notice of, and they agree to accept, the obligations arising under these Terms. You must also not change or delete any proprietary notices from materials downloaded from the Sites. In addition, automated review of and collection from archives and databases on the Sites for the purpose of storage, sharing or commercial use is not permitted.
Any unauthorized use terminates your limited license, and Fiskars may revoke this limited license at any time for any or no reason. In the event of a violation of these Terms, Fiskars reserves the right to seek all remedies available by law and in equity. Fiskars retains the right at our sole discretion to deny access to anyone to the Sites, at any time and for any or no reason, including, but not limited to, for violation of these Terms. You are also advised that Fiskars will actively enforce its intellectual property rights to the fullest extent of the law, including the seeking of civil remedies and criminal prosecution.
Your legitimate uses of the Sites and their content under general law remain unaffected by the foregoing.
2. User Warranties
You represent and warrant that you will use the Sites in compliance with these Terms, including the laws and provisions under these Terms, and to comply with all existing and future Site policies and rules. You agree that you will not (1) use the Sites to transmit spam or unsolicited communications, (2) pretend to be Fiskars or someone else, (3) forge headers or otherwise manipulate identifiers in order to disguise the origin of any content transmitted through the Sites, (4) misrepresent your affiliation with a person or entity, (5) act in a manner that negatively affects other users' ability to use the Sites, (6) engage in activities that would violate any applicable law, (7) post or transmit any material which violates or infringes in any way upon the rights of others or which is unlawful, abusive, defamatory, vulgar or otherwise objectionable or which contains any advertising or solicitation with respect to products or services, or (8) collect or store personal data about other users unless specifically authorized by such users. If you do not comply with the aforesaid, you may not use the Sites. Fiskars reserves all its legal rights in relation to such non-compliance, including but not limited to reporting you to the police or other law enforcement body, issue a warning or take legal action against you and pursue any costs we incur as a result of doing this.
3. Exclusion of Warranties
Although care has been taken to ensure the accuracy of the information on and the continued availability of the Sites, the content of the Sites is provided “as is” and “as available”. Fiskars makes no representations or warranties of any kind, either express or implied, in relation to the accessibility, correctness, accuracy, reliability or content of information on the Sites or attainable through them. While Fiskars makes efforts to accurately display the colors of products on the Sites, as the actual colors you see will depend on your monitor, Fiskars cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any color will be accurate. Any contractual claims that you may have for defects remain unaffected.
Fiskars does not warrant that the Sites, the server that makes them available or email sent from Fiskars are free of viruses or other harmful components. Fiskars reserves the right to change the Sites or withdraw access to them at any time without separate announcement.
Except where prohibited by law, in no event will Fiskars be liable in any manner whatsoever for direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages, losses, expenses or loss of profits related to the fact that you have (i) accessed the Sites or sites linked to them, (ii) not been able to access information on the Sites or (iii) used or tried to use information on the Sites, even if Fiskars has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Fiskars, furthermore, shall not be liable for direct or indirect damages related to disruption, omission, interruption, defect, delay in operation or transmission, computer virus or line or system failure, even if Fiskars or its representatives are advised of such damages, losses or expenses. Fiskars' liability, if any, is limited to, and will not exceed, that compelled by relevant laws.
