I.
— TERMS & CONDITIONS —

It is important that artists and users follow few but very important rules so we can all behave and have a great experience here on GGeeky.

II.
— COPYRIGHT LAWS —

When you decide to submit your designs to GGeeky, you declare that:

  1. The design is yours, created by you. You are the person who owns the right on it.
  2. The design doesn’t infringe the intellectual property rights or any other rights of any person or entity, doesn’t violate any copyright, trademark, moral rights or rights of privacy or publicity. This applies both to the whole design and its single elements.
  3. The design does not violate any third party agreement.
  4. The design does not contain material that defames any person, people, races, religion and is not pornographic, harassing, harmful or otherwise objectionable.
  5. If you are not the owner of the design, you declare to have permission to use the content and have all the rights required to display, sale and reproduce the content. Keep in mind that, if that’s the case, we’ll need a proof of that before we publish your design.

If your design does not meet all those 5 requirements, it won’t be accepted. GGeeky reserves the right to periodically review the design submitted, in its sole discretion or by external report. If discrepancies are found, we will remove any content from the website and/or cancel your account, because that content does not meet your agreement with us.

You agree to indemnify GGeeky in respect of any direct or indirect damage caused due to your breach of the agreement.

III.
— DIMENSIONS & FORMAT 

The general rule is that big, high-resolution files make for great prints. So, basically, make sure that your image is:

  1. 300 dpi
  2. Comes in a format between .AI (Illustrator), .PSD (Photoshop) or .INDD (InDesign).
    We can also accept EPS and TIFF.
  3. Follow our GUIDELINES.

IV.
— SEND YOUR FILES 

GGeeky welcomes every artist; we do want to create a huge community and offer our customers great designs, trying to differentiate our offer both in style and content.
That’s why every artists will get the chance to submit a maximum of 20 designs initially (choose wisely!) using our page SEND.

Every designs past the first 20 will be published slowly every week – we usually publish 2 to 4 new artworks every week.
So basically, as a new artist you have 20 available slots at first. Everything that comes later will not be published immediately.

Those 20 masterpieces will always be available for purchase in our store (unless you decide to remove them).

V.
— PAYMENT FOR ARTISTS 

Your art is the core of our business and it’s worth more than just glory! Below, you’ll find what’s your margin for every product:

Phone Case Commissions Rates

BASIC/BASIC PRO: 3€, three euros for every sale.
STANDARD: 3,5€, three and a half euros for every sale.

Wall Art Commissions Rates

WOOD WALL ART:
Rectangle S - M - L: 4€ - 7€ - 10€
Circular S - M - L: 3€ - 6€ - 9€
Square S - M - L: 3€ - 6€ - 9€

CANVAS WALL ART:
Rectangle S - M - L: 4€ - 7€ - 9€
Circular S - M - L: 3€ - 5€ - 7€
Square S - M - L: 3€ - 5€ - 7€

Every 15th of the month we pay your hard work for every sale sent in the previous month. For example: Marco’s X design has sold 10 copies of PREMIUM Cases and 10 Large Rectangular Wood Wall Art in April. On May 15th, he gets 140€ (40€ from PREMIUM and 100€ from Wall Art) on his PayPal/Revolut account. 
Revolut and PayPal are the only ways in which we issue payments.
You must have a verified PayPal account to receive the money you earned.
Keep in mind that, although the pay cycle begins on the 15th, it may take a few extra business days to process (up to 5 business days).

PLEASE NOTE: Consider that PayPal retains from € 1.99 (EU) to € 3.99 (Rest of the world) to receive money, on the contrary with Revolut there is no fee: 100% of what you earned comes to your Revolut account.
We strongly advise you to adopt the latter in your own interest! It is easy, fast and free to open a Revolut account. Find out how to do it here.

If you prefer to use PayPal anyway, you can also decide to get paid every 50€, so that its fees are less taxing. In this case, you should tell us as soon as possible.

Verify that the payment details provided are correct. Please make sure you have confirmed your account and provided us with the correct PayPal link/email or phone number associated with your account Revolut.

We will not consider ourselves responsible for non-payment if the error is caused by your incorrect data communication. So make sure you type correctly.

SALES AND DISCOUNTS

What happens when sales and discount are applied to products?
It’s simple: the same percentage of sale is applied to your commission.
So, for example, let’s say that everything goes on sale for 25% OFF. If a customer buys a SNAP case for 18,68€ (25% of 24,90 regular price), you will then get 2,62€ (25% of 3,5€ regular commission).

Site-wide discounts might give you the impression that you’re making less profit, but it’s good to keep in mind that discounts attract customers to the site and funnel them to your products.

You can always contact us at help@ggeeky.com for whatever problem.

You will be responsible for the payment of any tax that arises as a result of receiving payment from GGeeky.

VI.
 USAGE OF YOUR DESIGNS 

Once you submit your designs to GGeeky, those will be shown in our store and we will have the rights to use it for promotional campaign on social media/web and in a traditional way.
If you wish to stop our collaboration, no problem! Send us an email at info@ggeeky.com and we will remove any content from our store within 48 hours.
We wish this will never happen but it’s your choice!

VII.
— LEGAL DISPUTES —

 

It is very important that you follow this agreement and above all, your designs do not infringe any copyright or intellectual property.
So, in case of breach of any rights of a third party, including any intellectual property or privacy right, you accept to reimburse, indemnify and defend GGeeky from all costs, including legal/attorney fees, and direct or indirect damages.
