The term "use" and variations thereof mean and include access, interaction, sending and receiving information, downloading and uploading, posting, browsing, making purchases (if applicable), obtaining customer service and engaging in any other activity or using the features and functions of the Site, as a visitor, registered user or otherwise. In addition, we may refer to you, as "user", "you" or "your" and may refer to Hanesbrands (including our subsidiaries, affiliates, brands and operating units) as "we", "us" or "our". We also sometimes refer to third parties, such as our suppliers, operational service providers, co-sponsors, promotional partners and others and we will just use the term "third parties" when we refer to them.
Under this Agreement, we grant you a limited, revocable, non-transferable right to use the Site for your personal, noncommercial use. You obtain no other rights, interest or claim to the Site or any aspect of the Site at all.
Your rights include the right to create a hypertext link that leads from another website or webpage with content, material or information (collectively, including, but not limited to, the content, material and information, the "link") to our Site, so long as: (a) the link only incorporates text and not our or anyone else's trademarks; (b) you do not replicate Site content; (c) the link does not suggest any affiliation with, representation of or endorsement by, us or does, or is likely in our judgment to, cause confusion among consumers; (d) the link does not portray us, our products or services in a false, misleading, derogatory, or offensive manner and does not adversely affect our goodwill and reputation, and (e) links are not embedded into or otherwise contained within frames representing your website unless you have our separate permission to do so. We reserve all of our rights under the law to insist that any link to the Site be discontinued, and to revoke your right to link to the Site from any other web site at any time upon written notice to you.
In order to use certain features and functions of the Site, you may be asked to register (you can generally pick your own user name) and provide certain information about yourself, which you agree to input, update and maintain accurately and completely as long as you are a registered user. During the registration process, you will create a password. You are responsible for the confidentiality of your password, which, combined with your user name, form a unique user identification ("ID").
The Site is proprietary to Hanesbrands and Hanesbrands either owns or has the right to use all names, logos, brands, trade names, service and trademarks which appear on the Site, as well as all of the icons, characters, artwork, designs, images, graphics, music, games, text, software, databases and all copyrightable or otherwise legally protected elements of the Site including, without limitation, the selection, sequence and 'look and feel' and arrangement of items ("Content"), and all programming, codes, scripts in any form and format associated with or applicable to the Site ("Code"). All Content and Code are included within the meaning of the term "Site" and the Site is protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws. We require users to respect all laws and regulations that apply to our Site, just as we respect the rights of others. We will act expeditiously to remove content on the Site that we are notified infringes the copyright of others and, without limiting our remedies or actions, we have the right to block and disable use of our Site by anyone who repeatedly infringes the rights of others or violates this Agreement. We take protection of rights, our own and others, very seriously and we employ multiple measures to prevent infringement on our Site and to attempt to promptly end any infringement when it comes to our attention.
THIRD-PARTY CONTENT AND WEBSITES
This Site may contain references, URLs, links and other material related to or associated with websites, content, information and/or material of third parties, and third-party sites, such as Facebook, may host and display our branded social media fan pages. You should understand that we do not control, are not responsible for, do not monitor or endorse, and, simply put, have no obligation or responsibility, and do not incur or accept any liability for them, including, without limitation any information submitted by you or any other individual to one of our social media fan pages. These third parties, not us, are solely responsible for their websites, content, information and materials and their terms and conditions, including any privacy policies or statements, and all of their goods and services even if any one or more of our logos or sponsorship identification may be used by them, whether as part of a co-branding or promotional arrangement or otherwise.
PRICING, AVAILABILITY, ORDERING AND SHIPPING
Prices on our Site are in U.S. dollars, for U.S. purchasers only. We cannot ship to addresses outside the U.S. possessions and territories and APO and FPO (Air/Army Post Office or Fleet Post Office) boxes, and purchases are subject to applicable taxes to be paid by the purchaser, and prices do not include shipping and handling. Title (i.e., ownership) and risk of loss for all goods ordered, pass to you when we deliver the goods to the carrier for shipment.
You acknowledge and agree there may be unintentional inaccuracies, omissions or errors regarding price, offers, descriptions, promotions, availability or other matters and except as provided by law, we will not be held liable for these, but we will promptly correct them when brought to our attention. Goods may be out-of-stock or discontinued and prices are subject to change and, of course, we must reserve the right to limit the quantity of items purchased, to change and update information, as well as simply cancel orders you may have submitted (even if you received an automated confirmation), if information on the Site is found to be inaccurate. The Hanesbrands' products described in this Site may not be available in your region. We do not claim that the information in the Site is appropriate to your jurisdiction or that the products described in our Site will be available for purchase in all jurisdictions.
Product information is for information purposes only and although we make every effort to display products (including their colors) as accurately as possible, sometimes your computer and monitor settings can affect what you see when you look at the Site. Consequently, we cannot guarantee you will accurately be able to see the actual colors and specific features in every case.
SUBMISSION OF IDEAS
Don't send us any of your original ideas (each, an "Idea"). If you do, you are agreeing that your submission is entirely voluntary, non-confidential, gratuitous, and non-committal. We have no obligation to treat any Idea as confidential or proprietary and we have the right to use or disregard, in whole or in part, any Ideas. We will not be liable for the use of any Ideas nor will we incur or accept any liability, even if we adopt, use or implement anything that is similar or even identical to any Idea you submit. If you submit an Idea to us, we will have the right to use, exploit and do with the Idea as we determine, without notice or compensation, as if the Idea was original and proprietary to us.

You forever waive and relinquish all rights, including moral rights, if any, applicable to your Posting and if you Post anything, you agree to any additional terms and conditions that may apply and that you are required to agree to in the process of obtaining the right to Post on our Site. Please be careful what you Post and do not Post anything you do not want to become public, because you have no expectation of or right to privacy with regard to any Posting.
You represent and warrant that each Posting:(i) is original to you or you have obtained all required rights, licenses and releases required to comply with the terms of this Agreement, including, without limitation, the rights granted to us, (ii) does and will not, violate this Agreement nor infringe upon, misappropriate or violate the rights of any other party or any law or regulation; (iii) is not harassing, obscene, libelous, tortious or otherwise unlawful, nor intended to injure, defame or cause damage or hurt of any kind to any other party; and (iv) may be used by us as permitted in this Agreement, without notice, royalty or any other payment, liability or obligation of any kind whatsoever.
Postings are the sole responsibility of the person from which a Posting originated and a Posting made under your ID will be attributable to you and you will be responsible, even if you personally did not make the Posting. Postings do not reflect the views of Hanesbrands but we do reserve the right (although we have no obligation), to monitor, edit or screen Postings. We also reserve the right to delete, re-format and/or change your Postings in any manner that we may determine (although you will not be responsible for any such changes made).
