This Agreement was last modified on September 15, 2016.

Please read in full these Terms of Service for using www.theurbanhowl.com, owned and operated by The Urban Howl ApS. This Agreement documents the legally binding terms and conditions attached to the use of www.theurbanhowl.com from here on known as “the Site”.

By using or accessing the Site in any way, viewing or browsing the Site, adding your own content to the Site, or by submitting material to the site you are agreeing to be bound by these Terms of Service.

 

Intellectual Property (Copyright)

The Site and all of its original content are, unless otherwise noted, the sole property of The Urban Howl ApS and are, as such, fully protected by the appropriate international copyright and other intellectual property rights laws.

The Urban Howl ApS reserves the right to edit, alter and update all content of submitted articles, including the title and images — at their discretion. Our editorial team remains open to any ideas and suggestions and will consider any specified requests by the submitter prior to publishing. The writer retains the right to retract the article before publishing.

It is also the submitting party’s (the party submitting content to The Urban Howl for publishing on the Site) responsibility to ensure that they have all the rights to all the submitted content (e.g. copy and imagery). The Urban Howl ApS is not responsible for any copyright infringement on submissions, if not notified of the infringement to the email below. If notified of copyright violation, we will promptly remove or properly credit the content. If you are the copyright owner or the agent of the copyright owner and believe that any of our content infringes upon you or your client’s copyright, please send an immediate request for removal to editorial@theurbanhowl.com.

Submitting content previously published on the Site to another website or for print publishing:

To republish or share more than 33% of the written content of an article, previously published on the Site, on another website (the only exception to this being the author’s personal website), you must change the title, so it doesn’t interfere with online search engines and you must use a different featured image. We also ask that The Urban Howl is credited at the top or bottom of the article as follows:

“This article was previously published on The Urban Howl.”

(Hyperlink the original URL of the article on the Site to the words “The Urban Howl”.)

Submitting content previously published on another website or in print to the Site:

We do not republish content previously posted elsewhere, with the exception of the author’s personal website. To have content published on the Site, we ask that you notify us if your content has previously been published elsewhere before it is published on the Site. Given the volume of submissions we receive, we ask that you notify us if you decide to submit the same material to another website while it is awaiting review/publication on the Site, no matter how much time has passed since you submitted it.

 

Links to other websites

The Site contains a number of links to other websites and online resources not owned or controlled by The Urban Howl ApS. The Urban Howl ApS does not assume responsibility for the content or general practices of any of these websites and online resources. We strongly advise you to read the entire terms and conditions and the privacy policy of any site that you visit through a link posted on the Site.

 

Payment

All payments for products and services offered by The Urban Howl ApS are due upon receipt unless otherwise noted. If a payment is not received or a payment method is declined, the buyer forfeits the ownership of any items purchased. Items will not be shipped before full payment is received.

 

Shipping Policy

Shipping will be paid for by the buyer in the amount agreed upon by the seller at the time of purchase. If an item is lost during shipping, the total cost of item, including shipping, will be refunded to the buyer by the seller if the buyer has paid for shipping with tracking. If an item is damaged during shipping, seller will not be held responsible.

 

Refund/Return Policy

Items are entitled to be refunded or returned based on complaint. If an item is unsatisfactory, a written explanation is needed before the item may be considered for a refund. Buyer must take into account the description of the item before requesting a refund. If the item matches the description by the seller and the buyer is unsatisfied, seller is not responsible for refund. Exchanges are granted on a case-by-case basis.

 

Cancellation

Advertising: Written cancellation of order must be received prior to the agreed issue date of the advertisement to avoid billing. If no issue date has been agreed upon, it will be assumed that the issue date of the ad is the same as the date of payment. No cancellation will be accepted without written acknowledgement from the Site confirming receipt. Any order canceled on or after the agreed issue date will incur the full insertion cost. Late delivery of materials (e.g. imagery and link) for the ad may incur forfeiture of ad space at full cost.

Other products and services: An order may be cancelled up until payment has been processed. Once payment has been processed, the buyer is responsible for payment.

 

Complaints

Any complaints about products and services offered by The Urban Howl ApS should be addressed to support@theurbanhowl.com. There is no guarantee of a resolution. Each case will be looked at individually.

 

Legalities

Advertising: In no event shall The Urban Howl ApS, its owners, its employees or its volunteers be liable to the Advertiser for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, punitive or consequential damages whatsoever relating to the Advertisement. Any liability by The Urban Howl ApS shall be limited to the amount paid for an Advertisement. The foregoing limitations of liability shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by law in the applicable jurisdiction.

Other products and services sold or for sale by The Urban Howl ApS: The seller is not responsible for any health or safety concerns once the buyer has received the item. If any harm is incurred from the items purchased by the buyer, the seller shares no responsibility.
