Terms and Conditions

Last updated: 11/22/2023


This Terms of Use Agreement ("Agreement") constitutes a legally binding agreement by and between MAKANI ART LLC, a limited liability company organized under the laws of the state of Wyoming, doing business as Whoa Dude Design ("Whoa Dude Design"), and the client, whether personally or on behalf of an entity ("Client"). This Agreement governs the use of Whoa Dude Design's online services and website at https://www.whoadude.design ("Website"). Failure to agree and adhere to all of the terms, conditions and obligations contained herein results in the express prohibition of the Client's use of the Website.

1. Intellectual Property Rights

The Website and all its contents, including source code, databases, functionality, software, website designs, audio, video, text, photographs, graphics (collectively, "Content"), and all trademarks, service marks, and logos contained therein ("Marks"), are owned by Whoa Dude Design. These elements are protected under copyright, trademark laws, and other intellectual property laws and regulations of the United States and other jurisdictions, as well as by international conventions. The Client agrees to respect the intellectual property rights of Whoa Dude Design and third parties. Any unauthorized use of the Website’s Content or Marks, including reproduction, modification, distribution, or republication, without the prior written consent of Whoa Dude Design or the rightful owner, is strictly prohibited. The Client must not engage in any activity that infringes upon these rights, including copying, altering, or exploiting the Content or Marks for any unauthorized or unlawful purposes.

2. Ownership and Rights of Materials

All design and original source files created by Whoa Dude Design for Clients (referred to as "Projects") are exclusively owned by the Client upon completion and payment. Whoa Dude Design unequivocally assigns all rights, titles, and interests in the Projects to the Client, making the Client the sole owner of the copyright for these Projects. However, it is the Client's responsibility to ensure that any materials, ideas, or content provided to Whoa Dude Design for inclusion in these Projects are either owned by the Client or that the Client has obtained necessary permissions or licenses. This responsibility includes ensuring that such materials do not infringe upon or violate any third-party rights, including but not limited to intellectual property rights, privacy rights, and publicity rights.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Whoa Dude Design retains the right to display, reproduce, and publicly share any completed Projects for promotional purposes, such as showcasing Whoa Dude Design’s portfolio of work on digital platforms including the Website, social media, and other marketing channels. This right is subject to the terms outlined in Paragraph 17 of this document, particularly regarding any Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) or specific confidentiality agreements made with the Client. In the event of such agreements, Whoa Dude Design will respect the stipulations therein concerning the non-public display of certain Projects.

This clause ensures a balance between the Client’s ownership and confidentiality interests and Whoa Dude Design’s need to demonstrate its professional capabilities and achievements.

3. Third-Party Fonts

In the course of creating design projects for Clients, Whoa Dude Design may occasionally use fonts that are not owned by Whoa Dude Design and require a commercial license for their legal reproduction, distribution, or public display (“Third-Party Fonts”). If a Client’s project includes such Third-Party Fonts, Whoa Dude Design will notify the Client in writing, clearly identifying the Third-Party Fonts used and providing information necessary for the Client to obtain the appropriate licenses from the respective rights-holders.

This notification will guide the Client on how to legally acquire the necessary licenses for the Third-Party Fonts to lawfully reproduce, distribute, or publicly display the project. Upon receipt of this notification, the Client assumes full responsibility for acquiring these licenses and for any legal consequences that may arise from failing to do so. Whoa Dude Design’s responsibility is limited to informing the Client about the use of Third-Party Fonts and does not extend to obtaining these licenses on behalf of the Client.

4. Client Feedback

Whoa Dude Design values feedback from Clients, which includes any questions, comments, suggestions, or other forms of communication or input provided by the Client to Whoa Dude Design (collectively referred to as “Submissions”). It is explicitly understood that such Submissions pertain to the Client's experiences, suggestions for improvement, or general feedback about Whoa Dude Design's services and do not include any design work, original source files, or other materials created as part of the Client's projects.

Upon submission, all rights to these Submissions become the sole property of Whoa Dude Design. Whoa Dude Design is not obligated to treat any Submission as confidential and may use and disseminate Submissions at its sole and unrestricted discretion for any lawful purpose without seeking further permission, acknowledgment, or compensation from the Client.

The Client represents and warrants that they have the legal right and authority to provide such Submissions and agrees to waive all claims and recourse against Whoa Dude Design for the use of the Submissions in accordance with these terms. This clause is to be interpreted in a manner that does not conflict with Paragraph 2 ("Ownership and Rights of Design Projects") of this agreement, ensuring that the intellectual property rights related to specific design projects and source files remain with the Client.

5. User Representations and Prohibited Activities

By accessing and using the Website, the Client agrees to adhere to all applicable laws and ethical guidelines. The Website is intended for legitimate use aligned with the services provided by Whoa Dude Design. Clients are expected to respect the following terms:

Lawful and Ethical Use: The Client must use the Website only for lawful purposes and in a manner that does not infringe on the rights of, or restrict or inhibit the use and enjoyment of the Website by, any third party. This includes conduct that is unlawful, fraudulent, or harmful, or in connection with any unlawful, fraudulent, or harmful purpose or activity.

6. Payment and Refunds

Clients pay for any monthly subscriptions and trial periods upfront. Refunds are considered on a case-by-case basis, and Whoa Dude Design reserves the right to deny refunds based on its own self discretion and without notice or liability to Client. If a refund is deemed appropriate, there will be a 25% fee assigned to the remaining billable period. Refund requests during the trial period may result in forfeiture of the Client's right to use materials produced by Whoa Dude Design. Should the Client be granted a refund during a trial period or during the first month of use, Whoa Dude Design retains ownership of all materials that it produced, and the Client is prohibited from using said materials in any way. Whoa Dude Design reserves the right to take appropriate legal actions against the Client for breach of this paragraph.

7. Privacy Policy

By accessing and using the Website, the Client agrees to comply with and be bound by the Privacy Policy of Whoa Dude Design, as well as the terms detailed within it. The Website is hosted in the United States of America.

By using our services, the Client consents to this jurisdiction and venue. Both parties agree to waive any objections to these courts, such as claims of inconvenient forum or lack of personal jurisdiction. Additionally, Whoa Dude Design and the Client agree to forgo any right to a jury trial and will not participate in any class, consolidated, or representative actions. If litigation is necessary, both parties agree to first attempt to resolve disputes through good faith negotiation or an agreed-upon alternative dispute resolution method before resorting to the courts.

The terms and implications of an Administrative Pause will mirror those of a "Client Pause," in which Clients may pause service at any point in their billing period and save the remaining days for later. This means that during an Administrative Pause, similar to a Client Pause, subscription billing may be adjusted or halted. Clients will be notified as soon as possible regarding the commencement and expected duration of any Administrative Pause, along with any relevant details about how this will affect their ongoing projects or subscriptions. Whoa Dude Design is committed to minimizing the impact of such pauses on its Clients and will endeavor to resume normal service operations promptly.
