OPI Products, Inc. (OPI)
OPI Products, Inc. (OPI) is a professional, salon-only brand. OPI-branded products are manufactured for sale and distribution exclusively in salons, where the use and purchase of our products are guided by the advice of salon professionals.
OPI does not guarantee the genuineness, quality, or freshness of products sold on the internet or outside authorized salon channels. Such products may be adulterated or misbranded and may not bear legally-required batch code or ingredient information. You assume any such risk. Distributing counterfeit, stolen, or adulterated product may subject you to civil or criminal liability.
Many of our products are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and state and local regulations, as well as the laws of foreign countries. Certain OPI products are intended exclusively for use in services in salon, not home use, and require application by trained nail technicians with a full understanding of their properties. Among such products are OPI’s liquid and powder acrylic systems and our Axxium, Microbond, and GelColor Gel systems. OPI is not responsible for the sale to, and use of, such products by unlicensed, untrained nail technicians.
Sales which involve false declarations and illegal shipment of flammable materials via U.S. mail violate not only U.S. Customs and U.S. Postal Service laws, but also the import laws of the country of destination. Such action may subject both sellers and purchasers to criminal sanctions, fines, and confiscation.
OPI considers its trademarks and copyrighted material to be valuable intellectual property. OPI’s trademarks are protected by all available means, including registration in the United States and other countries around the world. OPI also protects its intellectual property through copyright laws in the United States and elsewhere. Anyone who uses OPI trademarks in connection with goods not manufactured by, or with the consent of, OPI has violated OPI’s trademark rights and is liable for infringement. Also, the use or dissemination of OPI’s copyrighted material in any way without OPI’s express permission is prohibited, and may constitute a violation of copyright laws in the United States and elsewhere. The photographic and other images that appear in OPI’s catalogs, websites, and promotional materials are protected by copyright and are not available for use without the express written consent of OPI.
OPI cooperates fully with law enforcement and regulators regarding these intellectual property issues, and will enforce its rights both civilly and criminally to the fullest extent of the law.
OPI regularly monitors the internet, including auction sites, in order to protect its intellectual property rights. Your listing may have been terminated by eBay at OPI’s request under its VERO policy. In accordance with eBay’s VERO policy, we will notify eBay of auction listings containing unauthorized uses of OPI’s copyrights and trademarks or exhibiting otherwise illegal or infringing activities.
Your ability to post the auction does not indicate that sale of the product in question is legal, authorized, or in compliance with eBay policies. While we try to ensure that all auctions of our products that contain infringements of our intellectual property, or which violate eBay policies, are removed from eBay, in the event that we or eBay do not proceed against another infringing auction does not justify the continuation of your auction. If you decide to re-list an infringing auction or continue to offer unlawful or violating items, you risk civil or criminal liability.
Note: In the European Economic Area, Switzerland, and elsewhere, applicable laws may not permit certain territorial border, or channel, restrictions on the sale of products. In such instances, OPI acts in a manner consistent with the applicable laws.
