Terms and Conditions
Last Updated: 1.31.2022
The following terms and conditions (“Terms”) constitute a binding agreement between the user (“User” or “you”) and Shipley Do-Nuts and govern your access to, and use of, all or part of any website or mobile application of Shipley Do-Nuts or its subsidiaries and affiliated companies (collectively, “SHIPLEY” “we,” “us,” or “our”), including ShipleyDoNuts.com, and any other site, mobile application, or online service where these Terms are posted (collectively, the “Sites”). The Sites are made available to provide information about Shipley Do-Nuts locations in the United States, and to provide certain marketing and other programs and services offered by SHIPLEY(“Programs”). Information made available through the Sites may apply only to participating Shipley Do-Nuts locations. These Terms do not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with SHIPLEY for products, services, or otherwise.
SHIPLEY reserves the right, at our sole discretion, to modify our Sites or to change or modify these Terms at any time. If we modify these Terms, we will post the updated Terms to the Sites with a “Last Updated” effective date of the revision. Any changes or modifications will be effective immediately upon posting of the changes or modifications, and to the extent permitted by law, you waive any right you may have to receive specific notice of such changes or modifications. Your continued access to, use of and/or participation in the Sites after these Terms have been changed or modified (see Last Updated date above) signifies your acceptance of any updated Terms. As a result, you should frequently review these Terms to understand the terms and conditions that apply to your access to, use of, and/or participation in the Sites. If you do not agree to the changed or modified Terms, your sole recourse is to stop using and accessing the Sites.
USE OF THE SITES
YOU MUST BE AT LEAST 16 YEARS OF AGE TO ACCESS AND USE THE SITES. The Sites are not targeted towards, nor intended for use by, anyone under the age of 16. If you are between the ages of 16 and 18, you may only use the Sites under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who agrees to be bound by these Terms. Please note that some Sites may require that the User be 18 or older to use the Site.
In order to participate in certain areas of our Sites, you will need to register for an account. You agree to (a) create only one account; (b) provide accurate, truthful, current, and complete information when creating your account; (c) maintain and promptly update your account information; (d) maintain the security of your account by not sharing your password with others and restricting access to your account and your computer; (e) promptly notify SHIPLEY if you discover or otherwise suspect any security breaches relating to the Sites; and (f) take responsibility for all activities that occur under your account and accept all risks of unauthorized access.
There are no fees charged by SHIPLEY to use the Sites, but there may be data usage or other like fees owed to your mobile carrier resulting from such use, for which you are responsible, and you are responsible for payment of any items purchased through the Sites.
ACCOUNTS & COMMUNICATION
You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information (i.e., user ID, password and/or challenge questions). You are also responsible for all activities that occur in connection with your account, irrespective of whether you personally engage in such activities. You agree to notify us immediately in the event of any known or suspected unauthorized use of your user account, or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of your password.
If a User signs up for a Rewards account through the Sites, the User is, by default, opted in to receive communications from SHIPLEY for the purpose of advising you of changes or additions to the Sites, about any of SHIPLEY’s products or services, or for such other purpose(s) as SHIPLEY deems appropriate. The User may, at the time of sign up, opt-out of receiving communications from SHIPLEY.
The Sites may provide an opportunity for you to submit your own content, including but not limited to comments, photos, videos and other content you submit to these Sites or the Shipley Do-Nuts Facebook/Instagram page (“User Content”). All of your communications with SHIPLEY through personal accounts or otherwise, as well as any attachments to those communications or otherwise submitted to us (such as documents, photographs, and videos) are User Content. SHIPLEY does not control, take responsibility for or assume liability for any User Content posted, stored or uploaded by you or any third party, or for any loss or damage thereto, nor is SHIPLEY liable for any user conduct or any mistakes, defamation, slander, libel, omissions, falsehoods, obscenity, pornography or profanity you may encounter.
You represent and warrant that your User Content is not subject to any confidentiality obligations and that you own and control all of the rights to the User Content, have the lawful right to distribute and produce such User Content, or otherwise have the right to grant the rights to SHIPLEY that you grant herein. By submitting User Content to the Sites or the Shipley Do-Nuts Facebook/Instagram page, you grant SHIPLEY a perpetual, non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, distribute, display, modify, create derivative works of, and sublicense the User Content in any way, including but not limited to reposting that User Content on the Sites. This license extends to your name and your Sites username and profile information (if applicable). By posting User Content, you hereby release SHIPLEY and its agents and employees from any claims that such use, as authorized above, violates any of your rights and you understand that you will not be entitled to any compensation for any use of your User Content.
SHIPLEY has the right, but not the obligation, to review, refuse to display, or remove any User Content for any reason, at SHIPLEY’s sole discretion. The absence of enforcement in some instances does not constitute a waiver of our right to enforce the Terms in other instances. In addition, these Terms do not create any private right of action on the part of any third party or any reasonable expectation or promise that the Sites will not contain any content that is prohibited by these Terms. Although SHIPLEY has no obligation to screen, edit, or monitor any of the User Content posted on the Sites, SHIPLEY reserves the right, and has absolute discretion, to remove, screen, or edit any User Content on the Sites at any time and for any reason without notice. You are solely responsible for creating backup copies and replacing any User Content you post or store on the Sites at your sole cost and expense.
If you are viewing the Sites on a public computer or are otherwise using a computer to which multiple people have potential access, be sure to follow all relevant instructions to ensure you are sufficiently disconnected and logged off the Sites and the computer system you are using to prevent unauthorized User Content.

Protect your gift card like cash. Lost or stolen gift cards will not be replaced. No service fees are charged on gift cards.

Non-SHIPLEY-owned content may not be used without permission.
Unless otherwise indicated, the Sites and all content therein, including, without limitation, the SHIPLEY logo(s) and all designs, articles, text, photographs, images, illustrations, graphics, designs, information, video and audio material, and software, including the selection and arrangement thereof, (collectively, “Content”) are SHIPLEY’s or its licensors or Users’ proprietary property. The Sites and the Content are protected by copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, international treaties, state and federal laws, and other proprietary rights and also may have security components that protect digital information only as authorized by SHIPLEY or the owner of the Content. All rights not expressly granted are reserved.
Subject to these Terms, SHIPLEY grants you a limited, non-sublicensable license (“Limited License) to access and use the Sites, and all material therein, for personal, informational, and consumer transactional purposes only, including the dissemination of content to the extent specifically allowed through any provided third party functionality made available through the Sites that allow you to post content from the Sites to your personal social media account(s).

Any violation of these Terms – including unauthorized use of the Content – will immediately terminate the Limited License granted by SHIPLEY to access and use the Sites and may subject you to legal action.
If you would like to use the Sites or the Content in a way that exceeds the scope of this Limited License, please contact us for permission.
SHIPLEY respects the intellectual property of others and expects Users of our Sites to do the same. SHIPLEY may, in appropriate circumstances and in its sole discretion, terminate the rights of any User who infringes the intellectual property rights of others.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement or are aware of someone doing so, you may file a notification of such infringement with our Designated Agent as set forth below:
5307 N. Main Street
Houston, TX 77009
Attention: General Counsel
Please see 17 U.S.C. §512(c)(3) for the requirements of a proper notification. Please note that if you knowingly misrepresent in your notification that the material or activity is infringing, you will be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, incurred by us or the alleged infringer as the result of our relying upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing.
If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against User Content posted by you on the Sites, the DMCA permits you to send SHIPLEY a counter-notice.
Notices and counter-notices with respect to these Sites should be sent to our Designated Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement, as set forth above.
By agreeing to these Terms and using the Sites, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless SHIPLEY, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, any related companies, suppliers, licensors and partners, and the officers, directors, employees, agents, and representatives of each of them from and against any claim or demand made by any third party, including all costs, liabilities and legal fees, due to or arising out of (i) your access to or use of the Sites; (ii) your violation of these Terms; (iii) claims for libel, slander or any property damage, personal injury or death; (iv) the use, failure to use, or inability to use the Sites or any products or services available through the Sites, caused directly or indirectly by you; (v) the infringement by you, or any third party using your account, of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity; and/or (vi) violations of any local, state or federal law.
SHIPLEY reserves the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you are required to indemnify SHIPLEY, and you agree to cooperate with SHIPLEY’s defense of these claims. You agree not to settle any matter without SHIPLEY’s prior written consent. SHIPLEY will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such claim, action or proceeding upon becoming aware of it, but no failure or delay of SHIPLEY to notify you will waive SHIPLEY’s right to indemnification.

CHOICE OF LAW AND FORUM
These Terms and the relationship between you and SHIPLEY shall be governed by the laws of the State of Texas without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Unless expressly waived by SHIPLEY, you agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in Harris County, Texas. Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Sites or these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim of action arose or be forever barred. In the event of any action to enforce or interpret these Terms, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover all legal expenses incurred in connection with the action, including but not limited to its costs, both taxable and non-taxable, and reasonable attorney’s fees.
If any provision of these Terms shall be unlawful, void, or unenforceable for any reason, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of these Terms, and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind SHIPLEY in any respect whatsoever.
SHIPLEY may assign its rights and obligations under these Terms, and these Terms will inure to the benefit of our successors, assigns, franchisees and licensees.
The failure of SHIPLEY to insist upon or enforce the strict performance with respect to any provision of these Terms, or to exercise any right under the Terms, will not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment to any extent of SHIPLEY’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance; rather, the same will be and remain in full force and effect.
These Terms may be modified by our posting of changes to these Terms on the Sites, or by written agreement of both parties. Each time you access the Sites, you will be deemed to have accepted any such changes.
