Your Trusted Source for Arts, Crafts, and DIY Inspiration

Welcome to my website, Michaels! I’m so glad you’re here. As site owner and creator, I want this to be a fun, inspiring, and safe space for creativity and self-expression. That’s why I’ve put together these Terms & Conditions – to clearly lay out what I expect from you and what you can expect from me. Consider it our mutual agreement to respect each other and keep things positive. Sound good? Then let’s get crafting!

1. Acceptance of Terms

By accessing and using Michaels, you agree to be bound by these Terms & Conditions and our Privacy Policy. If you don’t agree with them, that’s totally fine – but then Michaels may not be the website for you. The Terms & Conditions apply to all visitors, users, and others who access Michaels.

2. Use of Michaels

You may use Michaels for inspiration, entertainment, and informational purposes only. Michaels contains my original writings, photos, graphics, and other creative content. You may not modify, copy, distribute, transmit, display, reproduce, publish, license, frame, create derivative works from, transfer, or otherwise use any content without my express written consent.

3. User Conduct

You agree not to use Michaels for any unlawful purpose. You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations. Don’t be mean. Don’t harass or bully other users. Don’t violate anyone’s privacy or intellectual property rights. In short, treat others the way you want to be treated. If you don’t, I may delete your content, suspend or ban your account, and/or notify law enforcement about threats or illegal conduct.

4. User Content

I love seeing your creations inspired by Michaels! Feel free to post photos, videos, tutorials, product reviews, and other content related to arts, crafts, and DIY projects. By submitting content, you grant me a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, and irrevocable license to use, copy, modify, display, archive, publish, sublicense, create derivative works from, and distribute your content in any form, media, or technology.

You retain ownership and all other rights over your content. Post only content that you have the right to share. Don’t post illegal, offensive, or spam content. I reserve the right to remove any content at my sole discretion.

5. Comments

I want our comment sections to stay positive and inspiring. Don’t use obscene, defamatory, threatening, harassing, discriminatory, or hateful language. Don’t attack or insult other users. If you have nothing nice to say, maybe just keep scrolling instead of commenting! I reserve the right to delete or edit comments at my discretion.

6. Advertising & Sponsorships

Michaels contains paid ads and sponsored content to help keep things up and running. All ads and sponsorships will be clearly labeled as such. I only work with brands and causes that I genuinely believe in and think you’ll find valuable. If you have any feedback about ads, please contact me directly rather than the advertiser.

7. Links to Third Party Sites

Michaels may contain links to websites operated by parties other than myself. I don’t control these sites and am not responsible for their content. These links do not imply my endorsement of, affiliation with, or sponsorship of those sites. If you visit any third party sites, you do so at your own risk. Make sure to review the terms and policies of any linked sites.

8. Disclaimers

Michaels is for entertainment and inspiration only. You use the ideas, tips, and suggestions at your own risk. I am not liable for any injuries, illnesses, damages, claims, or losses related to your projects or attempts at crafting. All information is provided on an as-is basis without warranties of any kind.

While I strive for accuracy in all content, I cannot guarantee it is always 100% error-free. Some information may be outdated or contain typographical errors. You agree to verify any information before undertaking craft projects.

9. Limitations on Liability

I will not be liable to you or any third parties for damages arising from your inability to use Michaels, even if I have been advised of the possibility of such damages. In no event will I be liable for any indirect, incidental, consequential, special, or punitive damages arising out of your use of Michaels.

10. Indemnification

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold me harmless from and against any third party claims, damages, costs, or expenses arising from your use of Michaels, violation of these Terms, or infringement of any intellectual property rights.

11. Changes to the Terms

I may need to change these Terms once in a while. I reserve the right to do so at any time. If I do, I’ll post the updated Terms on this page and update the “Last Updated” date below. It’s your responsibility to check back for updates, as the changes are binding on you when posted. Continued use of Michaels after any changes constitutes acceptance of the new Terms.

12. Violations & Enforcement

I hope we never have any issues, but if we do, please contact me directly to resolve things amicably. However, I reserve the right to take any lawful actions in response to violations of these Terms, including suspending or terminating your access to Michaels and reporting you to law enforcement.

13. Governing Law

These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of [your state here] without regard to conflict of law principles. Any disputes related to these Terms must be resolved exclusively in the state or federal courts located in [your city here], and you consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts.

14. Severability

If any provision of these Terms is found invalid or unenforceable by a court of law, the remaining provisions will still be valid and enforceable.

15. Entire Agreement

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Michaels related to your use of this website. The Terms supersede any prior agreements, negotiations, or discussions between you and me, whether written or oral.

Thank you for reading all the way to the end of this – I know terms and policies can be boring but they’re important! Let’s go make something awesome.

Happy crafting!
