Legal Terms and Conditions


By submitting a design, and in consideration of Stones&Findings evaluating your Design (hereinafter the “Design”) for its possible use in jewellery components (the “Items”), you agree to the following terms and conditions (“Design Submission Terms and Conditions”):

If your Design is selected for use by Stones&Findings, you acknowledge that you assign to Stones and Findings Inc, and its subsidiaries and affiliates (hereinafter collectively ” Stones&Findings”) the entire right, title, and interest in and to the copyright in your Design including the right to sue for past infringement and the right to further sublicense the Design, for its sole and exclusive use on and in connection with the Items. You also acknowledge that you waive all “moral” rights that you may have in and to your Design.

If your Design is selected, Stones&Findings may use your Design in any manner on or in connection with the Items, including but not limited to: reproducing the Design on the Items, selling Items bearing the Design, changing or reworking the Design by making size changes, making derivative works of the Design, and using the Design on the Stones&Findings website and on promotional material for Stones&Findings. You agree to provide Stones&Findings with minimal information as may be required in order to register the copyright in the Design if Stones&Findings so requests, at no cost.

You may use or continue to use the Design for any other purposes, except those described below.

If your Design is selected, you may not use the Design (or derivatives of the Design) or allow others to use the Design (or derivatives of the Design) on any Items, as described above. In addition, by submitting your Design, you may not reproduce, sell, or submit the Design to others for any commercial purpose after the date of submission while the Design is being evaluated by Stones&Findings. However if your Design is not chosen and used elsewhere, you must notify Stones&Findings by email about where and when the Design will be used, so that it can be removed from the Stones&Findings database at that time. Stones&Findings reserves the right to choose your design after the contest has closed, on the condition that the design has not been used for commercial purposes on any Items, as described above.

You acknowledge that the Design you are assigning to Stones&Findings is your own original work, has not been previously published, and does not contain any trademarks, logos, copyrighted material, or any other intellectual property belonging to any third party, or any material, which Stones&Findings in its sole discretion, deems to be profane or offensive.

You acknowledge that Stones&Findings reserves the right to decline to select a Design for consideration for any reason.

Participants, who in the opinion of Stones&Findings, do not comply with these Design Submission Legal Terms and Conditions, or for any other reason at Stones&Findings sole discretion, can at any time be excluded from consideration without notice.

The decisions of Stones&Findings are final and binding.
