SUBMISSION OF IDEAS
(Back to top)
of Silhouette America®, Inc.
Silhouette America® appreciates the willingness of any individual to submit ideas that will expand the company's product offerings or to improve existing products. Silhouette America® may accept disclosures from non-employees only if there is a clear understanding of the basis on which the disclosure is made. Ideas should not be submitted to the company without an express understanding of the points below.
If you (the individual submitting an idea to Silhouette America®) believe your idea has significant commercial value or if you expect Silhouette America® to compensate you for the idea, you must obtain a written agreement signed by an authorized company officer before disclosing the idea to Silhouette America®.
In the absence of a written agreement between you and Silhouette America® that clearly supersedes or modifies this policy, the following provisions will apply:
- You must be the owner. By submitting an idea, you represent to Silhouette America® that you are the owner (or have authority to act on behalf of the owner) of the idea, including any copyrights, patents, or trade secrets.
- You must not violate any duties to others. By submitting the idea, you represent to Silhouette America® that you are not disclosing any confidential or proprietary information belonging to a third party (except as an authorized agent of the third party) or violating any obligation that you may have to a third party such as an employer, former employer, or partner.
- Silhouette America® is not obligated to hold any information relayed as confidential. No confidential relationship is to be established or implied by your submission of the idea or Silhouette America®'s consideration of the idea. Silhouette America® will have no obligation to maintain the secrecy of the idea or any related information.
- You understand that Silhouette America® might already be working on something similar. Silhouette America® will give the idea only such consideration as the company determines to be appropriate in its sole discretion. If Silhouette America® produces a product that incorporates the idea or a similar idea, there will be no presumption that the product idea was first introduced to Silhouette America® by you or that Silhouette America® received any benefit from your disclosure.
- Silhouette America® has not agreed to pay you. By accepting disclosure of the idea, Silhouette America® does not agree to pay you or anyone else. By submitting the idea without a prior written agreement, you acknowledge and accept the possibility that Silhouette America® may use the idea without paying any compensation or remuneration to you of any kind, and Silhouette America® will have the unrestricted right to do so unless use of the idea constitutes an infringement of a valid patent.

(Back to top)
for Silhouette Software Applications
Silhouette Software license keys may be offered for select Silhouette software applications to unlock the software application for use or upgrade the application to a premium version. All license keys offered provide a personal non-transferable license for use on up to three (3) compatible devices. License keys must be applied onto a Silhouette account. Once applied, license keys cannot be transferred to another account.
ONLINE SALES POLICY
(Back to top)
for Silhouette products
Silhouette America®’s Internet Sales Policy is to sell Silhouette products through our own website (www.silhouetteamerica.com) and through Silhouette authorized online resellers only. No person or business is authorized to sell Silhouette products via the Internet without express contractual agreement with and permission from Silhouette America, Inc. Authorized Silhouette resellers have direct access from Silhouette America® to the Silhouette product line, and are able to properly support Silhouette products by answering product and warranty questions. Purchasing Silhouette products through an authorized dealer/seller means that you receive a) a guaranteed quality product, b) proper support and assistance to help you with any questions you may have, and c) a confirmed warranty, should such become necessary. Silhouette America® asserts that the inability to fulfill these objectives undermines and degrades an optimal customer experience and harms Silhouette America®’s product perception and reputation.
Silhouette products purchased through any person or business that is not authorized may not be eligible for support or a valid warranty.
PRODUCT RETURN POLICY
(Back to top)
for orders from www.silhouetteamerica.com
Silhouette America® is only able to provide refunds for unopened/unused products, including digital product offerings, sold directly through our website (www.silhouetteamerica.com) within 30 days of purchase. We do not otherwise offer refunds or returns on product. Returns must be authorized by contacting email@example.com. Unauthorized returns not accompanied by a Return Authorization Number will not be accepted. Return shipping costs are your (the customer’s) responsibility, unless you have received a damaged or wrong product.
Refunds shall only be applied to the original method of purchase (i.e. credit card, gift card). In the instance that the credit card used to make the original purchase is no longer active or valid, Silhouette America® will provide a gift card credit in place of a refund.
Any claims relating to duplicate charges require submission of the credit card statement clearly showing such charges.
If your product is purchased through one of our Authorized Silhouette Retailers, Distributors, or Dealers (rather than directly from www.silhouetteamerica.com), you must obtain further assistance from that Authorized Silhouette Retailer, Distributor, or Dealer. You are encouraged to inquire with the company in question to clarify and confirm their specific return policy, and to seek further assistance from them directly for any product returns and/or refunds. Silhouette America® is in no way responsible for returns or refunds of Silhouette products not purchased directly through www.silhouetteamerica.com, regardless of origin be it through an Authorized Silhouette Retailer, Distributor, Dealer, or other source.
We are, however, regardless of origin of purchase able to offer support by providing assistance to facilitate the proper use of products, or to repair, replace, or exchange faulty products under warranty.
Silhouette America, Inc. offers a limited one-year warranty on its machines. If, at any time during the first year from the date of purchase, a Silhouette support representative cannot resolve a concern through troubleshooting or diagnosis, Silhouette America® will repair or replace the machine (at its option). Silhouette America warrants that the machine, when used in accordance with all manufacturer's instructions, will perform substantially in accordance with the accompanying documentation for its intended use during the warranty period. Silhouette America does not warrant that the machine will perform without interruption or error or that the software will be completely free of bugs. Silhouette America does not warrant consumable machine replacement parts, such as blades and cutting mats.
The warranty is made by Silhouette America, Inc., 600 North 2000 West, Lindon, UT 84042.
This warranty extends only to the original purchaser of the product as purchased through an authorized Silhouette dealer. This warranty is intended for natural persons only and does not extend to any corporation, limited-liability company, or commercial entity.
This warranty covers manufacturing defects only. It includes parts and labor and the cost of shipping the repaired (or replaced) product from Silhouette America to you. The cost of shipping the product to Silhouette America for evaluation is not covered.
If Silhouette America elects to replace a defective machine, or any part thereof, the original machine becomes Silhouette America's property. Silhouette America may replace the entire machine or any defective component thereof, at its option. After full evaluation of the returned machine by our warranty department, if a manufacturer's defect is confirmed, a new replacement unit will be issued, dependent upon inventory. If a manufacturer's defect cannot be confirmed, a refurbished (like-new) unit may be issued, dependent upon inventory.
All refurbished units receive a full inspection to ensure proper working condition, appearance, and quality. All refurbished units come with a 30-day limited warranty to cover any defects that may arise during that time frame. In all approved warranty cases, a like model will be issued. Silhouette America cannot substitute alternate machine models or issue monetary reimbursement or other forms of compensation.
Limited edition products, including alternate product color variants, are covered under warranty as stated in the "Limited Warranty" section above. However, limited edition products, including color variants, may not be able to be replaced with an identical unit. After full evaluation of the returned unit by our warranty department, if a manufacturer's defect is confirmed, a new replacement unit of like or similar product variation will be issued, dependent upon available inventory. If inventory of a like or similar product variant is unavailable, Silhouette America shall issue a new, available, standard, nonexclusive unit. If a manufacturer's defect cannot be confirmed, a refurbished (like-new) unit of like or similar product variation will be issued, dependent upon available inventory. If inventory of like or similar product variant is unavailable, Silhouette America shall issue an available, standard, nonexclusive, refurbished (like-new) unit.
A repair option may be offered as an alternative for limited edition (color variation) units.
United States and Canadian customers can obtain warranty service from Silhouette America at the following address. It is your responsibility to contact Silhouette America to obtain a return authorization number and then deliver or ship the defective product to us at your expense, together with a copy of your receipt showing date of purchase and a description of the claimed defect, prior to the expiration of the warranty period.
Silhouette America may accept a written affirmation of purchase in lieu of a purchase receipt in appropriate circumstances. Silhouette America will not accept unsolicited returns without accompany of a return authorization number. To obtain information regarding this warranty, you may contact us by mail, email, or online:
This warranty does not include damage or defects resulting from misuse, accident, modification, improper maintenance, natural disasters, or any other causes following your purchase of the product. The warranty does not cover consumables such as blades or cutting mats. Use of the Silhouette machine with any other cutting system, or any portion thereof, voids this warranty. Commercial use of the electronic cutting tool also voids this warranty.
TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THIS WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF AND EXCLUDES ALL OTHER WARRANTIES NOT EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
THE SOLE REMEDIES AFFORDED UNDER THIS WARRANTY ARE REPAIR, REPLACEMENT, OR, IF REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT IS NOT COMMERCIALLY PRACTICABLE OR CANNOT BE TIMELY MADE, A REFUND OF THE PURCHASE PRICE IF THE PRODUCT HAS BEEN PURCHASED DIRECTLY. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE LIABILITY OF SILHOUETTE AMERICA RELATED TO ANY PRODUCT EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT.
YOUR USE OF SILHOUETTE AMERICA PRODUCTS IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. SILHOUETTE AMERICA SHALL NOT BE LIABLE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES FOR CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES ARISING FROM OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF ANY SILHOUETTE AMERICA PRODUCT. (SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.)
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
