Intellectual Property Rights Protection
Train Records participates in the International Recording Media Association's (IRMA) Anti-Piracy Compliance Program, which protects property rights owners from the unauthorized distribution of their content.

The customer represents and warrants to Train Records: (a) that it is the true and rightful owner of, or is licensed or otherwise possesses legally enforceable rights to use the registered and unregistered rights, titles, and interests in and to any Canadian, United States or foreign trademarks, service marks, trade names, copyrights or other intellectual property rights relating to the materials provided to Train Records by the customer under this agreement, including but not limited to the right to reproduce, manufacture and otherwise use the materials: (b) that the customer and Train Records are not, or will not be, as a result of the execution and delivery of this agreement or the performance by Train Records of the obligations hereunder, in violation of any intellectual property rights of third parties; and (c) that no claims with respect to the customer's intellectual property rights or third party intellectual property rights in the materials are currently pending, nor to the knowledge of the customer, are threatened by any person, nor, to the customer's knowledge, do any grounds for any claims exist.

Customer agrees to indemnify, defend, protect, and hold harmless Train Records and its subsidiaries and their respective officers, directors, agents, affiliates, distributors, franchisees, and employees (collectively, "indemnified parties") against any liabilities, losses, claims, damages, punitive damages, causes of action, lawsuits, administrative proceedings (including interest from the date of such damages), and costs and expenses (including without limitation reasonable attorneys' fees and disbursements of every kind, nature, and description) (collectively, "damages") suffered, sustained, incurred, or paid by the indemnified parties in connection with, resulting from, or arising out of, directly or indirectly (i) any claim, demand, proceeding, or lawsuit by a third party based on any assertion that the services provided to the customer under this agreement breaches the patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, or other proprietary right of such third party and (ii) any breach of any representation or warranty of the customer set forth in this agreement or the form, Intellectual Property Ownership Agreement, Purchase Order, or in any other form or document in connection herewith.

Train Records reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to investigate the ownership of any and all materials provided hereunder.

The customer agrees to provide Train Records, upon request, all necessary documentation of ownership or other legal rights, including without limitation all pertinent copyright and licensing information. By reserving these rights, Train Records does not in any way assume an obligation to investigate or verify ownership of any materials provided by the customer, and Train Records may rely on the customer's representations and warranties herein and provided under Train Records' Intellectual Property Rights Form even if Train Records investigates such ownership.

If Train Records determines, or has reason to believe, that the customer does not have the authority to produce the products sought hereunder, Train Records will have no further obligations to the customer to provide any products or any other services with respect to such materials, and Train Records will return such materials to the customer.

Pricing and delivery
Train Records reserves the right to produce and bill for production overruns or underruns up to five percent (5%) of the customer's order. Customer will be billed for actual amounts shipped.

The customer's order will be delayed if the customer has failed to provide to Train Records all necessary materials (including without limitation master, graphics, deposit, signed estimate, signed Intellectual Property Rights Form, and Audio Track Listing).

Quoted or acknowledged delivery dates are only estimated dates of delivery. Train Records specifically disclaims liability for delays in delivery and any resulting consequential damage or losses.
In the event a client fails to pay within ninety (90) days for any work completed, or in the event a client fails to accept delivery or pick up his finished product within ninety (90) days from completion, Train Records has the right to sell, dispose of, destroy or use any such material on hand in any way Train Records chooses without any liability by Train Records to the customer or others.

Train Records assumes that the client has backups or originals of all content (including without limitation masters, graphic files, multimedia files, video files, and audio files) provided in digital electronic form (including without limitation on recordable CD or DVD, digital video master, Zip, SyQuest, 1630, DLT, DAT, or other digital recording medium, or as uploaded to Train Records’ web site via FTP, email, or other means) for manufacturing. As such, Train Records is not obligated to return such electronic content to the customer upon completion of the order. Train Records will return analog masters, original artwork, photos, transparencies, etc. furnished by the client upon completion and payment of the order.

Upon completion of any replication or printing order Train Records will retain certain production masters (e.g. stampers, label film, original graphics files, and other materials needed to manufacture the product to the customer's specification) for a period of 6 months from the date the product was last ordered or reordered. (Train Records will keep electronic back-ups of graphics files for 2 years). After 6 months of inactivity those physical production masters and related parts will be recycled or discarded to create space for active titles. Customer reorders placed after more than 6 months of inactivity will not incur any extra charges so long as Train Records can get one copy of the original finished product from the customer at the time of reorder.

While Train Records will treat the customer's materials with the utmost care, Train Records specifically denies liability for damage or loss due to fire, casualty, or negligence while the customer's materials are in the care and possession of Train Records.

Customer's materials stored in Train Records' premises are not insured and are stored strictly at the customer's risk. The customer agrees to carry insurance coverage for its materials while at and in transit to and from Train Records' premises.

Payment terms
Train Records requires a deposit of 50% of the purchase price with most custom manufacturing orders (your product specialist will inform you of the deposit requirements). The balance of the purchase price, subject to a five percent (5%) production under or over run, is due upon completion of the order, before shipping (no C.O.D.s).

If replication orders are prepaid in full, including freight and applicable taxes, any overs will be at no charge.

Reorders, rush orders, and printed materials, must be prepaid in full, including freight and any applicable taxes.

Direct mail fulfillment orders always require postage to be paid before mailing. The customer will be informed of the exact postage after we receive customer’s mailing list.

Warranty of product, limitation of liability, and indemnification
Train Records guarantees the customer's satisfaction with art and content proofs. However, once proofs are approved Train Records will charge for all work and services performed, even if the project is subsequently canceled.

Train Records warrants that material produced and delivered by Train Records meets Train Records' standard specifications for the material or such other specifications as described in this catalog and meets generally accepted industry standards.

All custom-manufactured and/or printed Train Records products are unconditionally guaranteed against defects in quality and workmanship. If any custom-manufactured product produced by Train Records from or through the use of materials is found to be defective in quality, or is shipped or labeled in error, Train Records will replace or repair defective product and/or correct error in shipment or labeling at its own expense or, at Train Records' option, refund to customer part or all of the purchase paid to Train Records, on the condition that a) written notice of such defect or error is received by Train Records at its office within thirty (30) days after shipment by Train Records to customer, and b) the defect or error did not result from a defect or error in the materials supplied by or on behalf of the customer. If said notice is not received by Train Records within the date indicated above, Train Records will be deemed to be released by customer from any and all liability.

The customer shall return any defective product to Train Records should Train Records so request. No merchandise may be returned to Train Records without written return authorization by Train Records. Product reruns or purchase price refunds will be prorated based on the quantity of defective merchandise returned.

Prior to returning any product, you must obtain an RMA (return merchandise authorization) number from Train Records. The RMA number must appear on your address label. Train Records reserves the right to refuse delivery of any item returned without an RMA number.

Train Records is not responsible for any loss of revenue or profit or other financial damages of any kind whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, suffered by the customer for any reason whatsoever.

Order cancellation
Orders for products not yet manufactured by Train Records may be cancelled by either party at any time. The customer will be responsible for all costs incurred by Train Records related to pre-manufacturing or manufacturing of any product, prior to receipt of notice of cancellation. After such cancellation, the customer's materials and any completed product may be delivered to the customer only after all sums owed to Train Records have been paid in full by cash or check.

Further, Train Records shall have no liability for any consequential or punitive damages or losses to customer or anyone else, under any theory, for defects in material or workmanship or any other reason whatsoever.

Prior to returning any product, you must obtain an RMA (return merchandise authorization) number from Train Records. The RMA number must appear on your address label. Train Records reserves the right to refuse delivery of any item returned without an RMA number.

Upon receipt of the returned product, Train Records will issue you a credit for the full purchase price. This credit may only be applied toward the purchase of another product that Train Records sells and must be used within 30 days from the date Train Records receives your returned product. Product may not be returned for a refund under the Perfect Fit Guarantee. All shipping costs are the responsibility of the customer.

Recordable media guarantee
Train Records guarantees that once you have successfully recorded data onto a recordable CD-R or DVD-R purchased from Train Records, the integrity of the data will remain intact. If a recorded disc(s) loses data after successful recording, Train Records will replace the affected disc(s) with comparable media. Discs that have been rejected during duplication are not covered under this guarantee. Due to the nature of duplication technology and compatibility between media and hardware, a rejection rate of up to 8% is normal during duplication.
