EOD is in the business of producing and selling digital lessons online in the form of downloadable PDF e-books or downloadable videos (“EOD Lessons”), mostly instructing on art, jewelry making, design and Zentangle®. EOD Lessons can be purchased individually or through a subscription, and are delivered via download links contained in emails or hosted webpages. EOD also designs, produces and sells tangible retail products such as printed books, scarves, card games, artwork, clothing and other accessories (“Products”).
When you acquire Products or EOD Lessons through EOD's points of sale, you agree to be legally bound by the terms of this contract, including also any Supplemental Terms such as the Privacy and Copyright Policies.
You acknowledge that you have legal authority to enter into this contract and that you are at least 18 years of age. EOD reserves the right to change the terms and conditions set forth herein, which changes will be binding on all purchasers and users. If you do not agree with these terms, then please do not acquire products or EOD Lessons from EOD.
Currently our Website, its Products and Lessons are designed for and intended for users in the United States. We make no representation that our website or EOD Lessons and Products are appropriate for, or available to, users in locations outside the United States. Accessing the Website and EOD Lessons from territories where the Content is illegal is prohibited.

About EOD Lessons and Products
Buyers of EOD Lessons and Products (“Buyers”) have the option of purchasing through several online channels: (1) enioken.com (EOD's Website), (2) a third-party hosted ecommerce store Gumroad.com (“Gumroad”), (3) a third-party hosted ecommerce store Etsy.com (“Etsy”), (4) a third party manufacturer of tangible goods QP Printing (“MakePlayingCards”), (5) a third party print-on-demand online store Lulu.com (“Lulu”), (6) a third-party print-on-demand manufacturer of tangible goods ArtofWhere.com (“Art of Where”).
When Buyers purchase directly at EOD Website, their payment information is collected by Sendowl.com (“Sendowl”)’s website cart and processed by Paypal.com (“Paypal”) or Stripe.com (“Stripe”) payment gateways.
EOD may store some personal information such as Buyer's name, email, country and purchase information like products bought, date of purchase and amount spent. However, financial information pertaining to credit card or bank accounts is not stored. That information is collected and stored by third-party services (see below for complete breakdown).
Buyers of EOD Lessons are responsible for downloading their EOD Lessons immediately after purchase, since download links and download webpages expire and change location frequently due to security and technical upgrades. As a courtesy, EOD may provide a new download link or download webpage to a previous Buyer whenever possible. Otherwise, Buyers must purchase their EOD Lessons again.
Buyers purchasing through third-party vendors other than EOD Website using Sendowl must contact these vendors if they need assistance or help.
A Buyer may send an EOD Lesson as a gift to another person. To do so, the Buyer must include the other person’s name and correct email address at the time of checkout.
Since EOD Lessons are non-tangible, downloadable items that are delivered immediately, all sales are final. EOD does not offer refunds on digital orders unless there is a verifiable EOD mistake or duplicate order (see exceptions below). If, on the rare occasion, you receive an electronic file from EOD that was damaged through no fault of the Buyer and prior to it being received by you, we will be happy to investigate and provide a replacement copy. To obtain a replacement copy, please contact us at https://www.enioken.com/contact.
Use of EOD Lessons and Their Content
EOD Lessons are distributed in different digital formats, such as video, portable document files, and image files (“downloadables”). EOD hereby grants to each purchaser a limited and non-exclusive license to download and print ONE COPY of each downloadable file for your PERSONAL USE only. You may not sell, distribute, share, copy or otherwise duplicate any EOD Lessons or downloadables without express written consent from EOD. You can also not hold yourself as owner or creator of the Lessons and downloadables.
If you have purchased an EOD Lesson for another person, then only that other person can print and view it.
You can display online the work you have created and learned through EOD Lessons, provided that appropriate credit to EOD is at all times clearly and visibly displayed in writing. Such credit should read “Learned from Eni Oken at enioken.com”, or contain substantially equivalent language.
No Commercial Use - Exceptions
You may not use this website, anything contained on it or anything downloaded or otherwise derived from it (including without limitation EOD Lessons and designs) for commercial purposes of any kind whatsoever, without the express written consent of EOD. This prohibition extends to any and all distribution and copying.
1. You can teach live, in-person classes with the information you learned through your EOD Lessons, provided that you give the following credit at the time of the class both verbally and in writing: “Learned from Eni Oken at enioken.com”, or contain substantially equivalent language. Therefore, absent express written permission from EOD, you may NOT teach, instruct or act as a consultant/advisor of EOD Lessons or any information obtained therefrom other than in the single limited method described above.
2. You may use techniques learned from EOD, but only to create your own specific designs, provided that they are substantially unique from EOD designs and do not otherwise infringe upon the rights held in those designs by EOD or others.
These are the only exceptions to the commercial use prohibition.
The foregoing prohibitions include use of online or through other forms of electronic communication, regardless of the format. These prohibitions further include use of or participation in live streaming, videos, e-books, etc. as a teacher, instructor, consultant/advisor of EOD Lessons, even if you have created new text and images of your own. Furthermore, you may NOT write, create, publish or distribute any educational materials that include information learned through EOD's Lessons, including books in print, without express written permission from EOD.
About Art Club Subscription
Art Club is a monthly subscription service offered by EOD. Upon signing up, Art Club subscribers (“Clubbers”) receive an email with a personalized email link and passkey. The passkey cannot be changed by the Clubber. The email link grants access to a growing list of EOD Lessons.
The EOD Lessons offered by Art Club are selected by EOD, with no possibility of exchanges. EOD also determines the content, date of release, length and format of all new EOD Lessons. Clubbers will receive an email when a new EOD Lesson is released, at which time they will be permitted to download the EOD Lesson. Accordingly, Clubbers should periodically check their email inbox for such notices.
Another benefit of being a Clubber is access to a private Art Club Facebook group, through which Clubbers can ask questions, exchange information with other Clubbers and post their student work. Clubbers must abide by all of Facebook's terms as well as group guidelines to participate. Participation in the Art Club Facebook group is entirely optional.
Occasionally EOD might post content exclusively for Clubbers (“Bonus Content”). EOD determines the content, if any, date of release, length and format of all Bonus Content. Bonus Content cannot be exchanged or replaced for other content.
Clubbers may grant EOD permission to post their work on EOD's website in the student galleries section. Student work is displayed as text or as Facebook post screen grabs which may include student's name, message and photos.
Cancellation of Art Club Subscription
Clubbers can cancel their subscription at any time by contacting us at [email protected] Upon cancellation, access to personalized lists, downloadables and the Facebook group will be prohibited. Therefore, Clubbers are encouraged to download all of their EOD Lessons prior to cancellation. Please note, however, that student gallery posts may not be removed absent a specific request.

Breach of These Terms and Conditions
Without limiting other remedies, we may limit your activity, issue a warning, temporarily suspend, indefinitely terminate your participation or subscription and/or refuse to provide our Website and EOD Lessons to you if, within our sole and independent judgment: (a) you materially breach, or we reasonably anticipate that you are about to materially breach this Agreement or the documents it incorporates by reference; (b) we are unable to authenticate any information you provide to us; (c) you fail to pay any amount due by the due date; or (d) we believe that your actions may cause financial loss or legal liability for you or EOD. We may also terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause.
Choice of Law and Jurisdictional Issues
We do not knowingly collect information from anyone under the age of 18. Our Site is directed at and intended for those who are over the age of 18. If someone is under the age of 18, they should only use this site under the supervision of an adult or parent, and should not submit any information to this Site.
Assignment and Succession
Notwithstanding any other provision of these Terms, EOD, its successors and assigns, may fully enforce any term or provision of these Terms, and all rights and benefits shall inure to such successors and assigns, with or without prior notice.
EOD may terminate your use of the EOD Lessons at any time and for any reason, with or without cause, without prior notice to you and without any liability or further obligation of any kind whatsoever to you or any other party. Each Buyer further agrees that if his or her access is terminated for any reason, they will not attempt to access or buy EOD Lessons and Products under a new name, real or assumed.

Moreover, should EOD be dissolved, sold, transferred or end for any reason, partially or entirely, Buyers may no longer have access to their EOD Lessons. As buyers are responsible for immediately downloading all their EOD Lesson videos, printables and PDF e-books, this is another reason for buyers to do so.
