TERMS OF USE:

The Terms of Use of the Spark Catholic Communications web site is an agreement between our company and our customers. For our part it is an extension of our company’s commitment to deliver the highest-quality products and services to our customers under the highest level of integrity in dealing with our web site visitors and our customers. For our web site users and customers this agreement acknowledges similar integrity of action.

Spark Catholic Communications bases our business practices on principles of virtuous behavior as taught within The Holy Bible and Catholic moral teaching as taught within the Catechism of The Catholic Church. By way of example we share two insights taken from Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition as taught within the Catholic Catechism: Part Three “Life of Christ,” Section One (Man’s Vocation Life In The Spirit), Chapter One: “The Dignity of The Human Person,” Article 7: “The Virtues,” which teaches: "Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things." (Catechism of the Catholic Church: 1803) [Phil 4:8]. At Spark Catholic Communications we fully believe teachings of the Catholic Church, including that “virtue is a habitual and firm disposition to do the good” and that “a life lived in virtue not only allows the person to perform good acts, but also to give their best and tend toward the good while pursuing the good and choosing it in concrete actions.” (CCC: Church: 1733, 1768)

As often with large format printed products and related hardware when shipped, SCC products are typically of a length and girth that require FedEx to handle packages manually and not on automated belts which can lead to damage. Therefore, FedEx shipping costs paid by customers may be considered higher than standard packages; however shipping cost will also be displayed for agreement at the time of checkout by SCC customers who are reminded to recognize shipping costs for SCC products allow products to arrive at their destination safely and looking as beautiful as when shipped.

All items purchased from SCC are made pursuant to a shipment contract with FedEx. All SCC customers will be provided with a FedEx tracking link to track shipments for which ownership and title, and risk of lost shipments, pass to SCC customers and not SCC upon our delivery of SCC shipped orders to its carrier FedEx.

All shipping fees required for payment by SCC customers for the cost to ship ordered products, are highlighted within the shopping cart for each customer order and must be agreed to in order to complete any order or otherwise the order will not be completed. Customs fees, duties and tariffs are the responsibility of the customer for shipments outside the United States.

Product Expectations

SCC products are of high quality and design for their intended purposes. Product purchased may vary slightly from visual representations and custom designs approved based on graphic display or printed documents due to variations in fabric dye lots and/or printing processes. Banner sizes may vary by as much as 7% depending on print runs, selected options for grommets or hems or for use with certain stands. All products are sold on a "first come, first served" basis and therefore all orders are subject to product availability. (If you are working with a deadline, please contact SCC at: 855-97-SPARK (855-977-7275) to first confirm product availability.)

SCC products are shipped in special, reinforced custom-designed boxes for your order, strong enough for storage and re-use. All merchandise is carefully packed by shipping experts. SCC insures each package because of its high value and prepare it in such a way that each SCC product us in the best possible condition.

Banners purchased with retractable stands are always installed within the retractable stand and therefore are always rolled into the stand for shipment. All other banners printed on vinyl or fabric, are also rolled for shipment and therefore shipping boxes are often longer and larger than standard shipping rates may allow.

Spark Catholic Communications, LLC is not liable for products that are damaged or lost in the shipping process. Upon delivery of our product to the shipping provider, the risk of any and all losses passes on to the customer or user that made the purchase.
