1. Overview and Acceptance of Use

Throughout these Terms of Service (“Terms”), the terms “Multipliciti”, “our”, “us”, and/or “we” refer to Multipliciti, a subsidiary of Multipliciti, Inc. The terms “you” and/or “your” refer to any visitor of the Site and/or any user of the Services, including any Member (as defined below). These Terms govern your access to and use of the Services and Collective Content (defined below), and constitute a binding legal agreement between you and Multipliciti.

Please read these Terms, our Privacy Policy, the Buyer Terms of Service, and Supplier Terms of Service, all of which are incorporated herein by reference and govern your access to and use of the Services. The Services are offered and available solely to users who are 18 or older. By using the Services, you represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract with Multipliciti and meet the foregoing eligibility requirements. If you do not meet these requirements, you must not access or use the Services. If you are entering into these Terms on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that party to these Terms and, in such event, “you” and “your” will refer and apply to that party.

You acknowledge and agree that by accessing or using the services (including by downloading or posting any content from or onto the services), you agree to be bound by these terms and all other terms and policies referenced in these terms. This applies whether or not you have registered on or through the services. If you do not agree, then you have no right to access or use the services or collective content.

These terms require the use of arbitration to resolve individual disputes, rather than jury trials or class actions, and also limit the remedies available to you should there be a dispute. Your agreement to these terms indicates your express acknowledgement and agreement that you have read and understand how the arbitration provision set forth in section 26 below works.

The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between Multipliciti and you.

You and Multipliciti agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each Party retains the right to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights; (c) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state or local agency if that action is available; and (d) seek injunctive relief in a court of law in aid of arbitration. You acknowledge and agree that you and Multipliciti are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Multipliciti otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Multipliciti as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these terms.

Arbitration rules and governing law. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. The parties agree that the Federal Arbitration Act applies and will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration agreement.

Arbitration process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written demand for arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an experienced (15+ years practicing) attorney licensed to practice law in the state of Delaware.

Arbitration location and procedure. Unless you and Multipliciti otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed US$10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Multipliciti submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds US$10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties.

Arbitrator’s decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent, to the extent permitted by law, with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable.

Fees. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the aaa rules. If applicable arbitration rules or laws require us to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this dispute resolution provision to be enforceable, then we will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration.

Changes.

The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Multipliciti. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.

You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use any credit card(s) or other payment method(s) in connection with any Purchase; and that the information you supply to us is true, correct and complete.

The service may employ the use of third party services for the purpose of facilitating payment and the completion of Purchases. By submitting your information, you grant us the right to provide the information to these third parties.

We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order at any time for reasons including but not limited to: product or service availability, errors in the description or price of the product or service, error in your order or other reasons. We also reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order if fraud or an unauthorized or illegal transaction is suspected.

2. Content

These Plans do not include any detailed electrical, plumbing, heating or air conditioning, or structural drawings due to the wide variety of local codes, regulations, site and climatic conditions. The purchaser should have a local electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, structural engineer and/or builder provide the detailed electrical, plumbing, heating and air conditioning, and/or structural drawings as may be required for permits and construction. The design as shown may not be acceptable for some locations due to specific local requirements, climate, and codes. Each purchaser should have a local designer, architect, or licensed engineer review these Plans and provide a site-specific structural, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC design if deemed necessary.

These Plans provide ideas and concepts and are not intended to be complete in all respects and details. Variations in standard sizes of window and door brands and types and use of different materials and thicknesses can change details. The variation of local codes and regulations, site conditions, foundation requirements, and the layout of electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems may also change details.

3. Availability, Errors and Inaccuracies

We are constantly updating product and service offerings and we may experience delays in updating information on the Service and in our advertising on other web sites. The information found on the Service may contain errors or inaccuracies and may not be complete or current. Products or services may be mispriced, described inaccurately, or unavailable on the Service and we cannot guarantee the accuracy or completeness of any information found on the Service. We therefore reserve the right to change or update information and to correct errors, inaccuracies, or omissions at any time without prior notice.

4. Intellectual Property

All products and services and its original content, features, and functionality are and will remain the exclusive property of Modern ADU Plans. The plans, products, and services are protected by copyright, trademark, and other laws of both the United States and foreign countries. Our trademarks and trade dress may not be used in connection with any product or service without the prior written consent of Modern ADU Plans.

Purchase and downloading of any PDF plan package grants the purchaser as “Licensee” the right to use such documents to construct a single home. A single purchase of the plans allows for the creation of prints solely for the purpose of construction of a single project. The purchaser acknowledges that all rights of ownership, title, and interest in the copyrights, plans and derivatives remain with Modern ADU Plans. Modified plans are considered derivatives of the original and receive the same copyright protection even if completely redrawn. License for use of the Plans ends with the completion of the house (occupancy). Plans are not transferable to a third party, meaning if the house is not built the Plans may not be sold to somebody else.

Any use of the Plans, or modifications of the Plans, by purchasers, builders or others is done at their own risk. Licensee shall have the Plans reviewed by a local designer, architect or engineer before the start of construction. The information contained within the plans is to indicate design intent and basic construction detailing. It is the builder’s responsibility to provide standard construction details and practices which will result in a structurally sound and weatherproof finished product.

Any use of the information contained herein beyond the one-time use authorized by a purchase of the plans, or any duplication, publication, sale or distribution of any part of these Plans without the prior written consent of Modern ADU Plans represents a violation of Federal Laws subject to the prescribed penalties.

5. The following statement is provided by the House Plan Marketing Association:

  1. HOME PLANS ARE COPYRIGHTED – Just like books, movies and songs, home plans receive protection under the federal copyright laws. The copyright laws prevent anyone, other than the copyright owner, from reproducing, modifying or reusing the plans or designs without written permission of the copyright owner.

    DO NOT COPY DESIGNS OR FLOOR PLANS FROM ANY PUBLICATION, ELECTRONIC MEDIA OR EXISTING HOME – It is a common misunderstanding that making changes to or redrawing a plan found in a plan book is permissible. It is not. The right to modify plans is one of the exclusive rights of copyright. It is also illegal to copy or redraw a constructed home that is protected by copyright, even if you have never seen the plans for the home. If you find a plan that you like, you must purchase a set of plans from an authorized source.

    DO NOT USE PLANS TO BUILD MORE THAN ONE HOUSE – The original purchaser of a house plan is typically licensed to build a single home from the plans. Building more than one home from the plans without permission is an infringement of the home designer’s copyright and, unless otherwise specified, you should assume that construction sets typically include 5 to 8 (hard copy) sets. The purchase of a multiple set plan package is for the construction of a single home only and the purchase of any additional plan sets do not give you the right to construct more than one home, unless otherwise stated on our site. However, we do offer some plans which include either the PDF or CAD file unlimited use package which does allow for building the plan more than once. Also, some designers may have a re-use fee for their plans; you will need to contact our office for us to determine if one is available for a specific plan and what that dollar amount may be as these vary per designer and plan.

    HOUSE PLANS IN THE FORM OF BLUEPRINTS OR BLACKLINES CANNOT BE COPIED OR REPRODUCED – Plans, blueprints or blacklines cannot be copied or reproduced without the prior written consent of the copyright owner. If additional sets are required for estimating or construction, please contact the home designer for additional sets at a nominal cost. Copy shops and blueprint are prohibited from making copies of these plans. The pdfs come with a license agreement that will allow for you to make copies locally.

    HOUSE PLANS IN THE FORM OF BLUEPRINTS OR BLACKLINES CANNOT BE REDRAWN – Plans cannot be modified or redrawn without first obtaining the copyright owner’s permission. With your purchase of plans, you are licensed to make non-structural changes by “red-lining” the purchased plans. If you need to make structural changes or need to redraw the plans for any reason, you must purchase a reproducible set of plans (see topic 6) which includes a license to modify plans. Blueprints do not come with a license to make structural changes or to redraw the plans. You may not reuse or sell the modified design.

    REPRODUCIBLE HOME PLANS – Reproducible plans (for example pdfs, CAD files and vellums) come with a license to make modifications to the plans. Once modified, the plans can be taken to a local copy shop or blue print to make copies of the plans to use in the construction of a single home. Only one home can be constructed from any single purchased set of reproducible plans either in original form or as modified unless otherwise stated on our website.

    MODIFIED DESIGNS CANNOT BE REUSED – Even if you are licensed to make modifications to a copyrighted design, the modified design is not free from the original designer’s copyright. The sale or reuse of the modified design is prohibited. Also, be aware that any modification to plans relieves the designer from liability for design defects and voids all warranties expressed or implied.

    WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT? – Any party who participates in a copyright violation may be responsible, including the purchaser, designers, architects, engineers, drafters, homeowners, builders, contractors, sub-contractors, copy shops, blueprint, developers and real estate agencies. It does not matter whether the individual knows that a violation is being committed. You’ve heard it before: Ignorance of the law is not a valid defense! Refuse to be a party to any illicit copying or use of designs, derivative works, prints, design features or homes.

    PLEASE RESPECT HOME DESIGN COPYRIGHTS – In the event of any suspected violation of a copyright, or if there is any uncertainty about the plans purchased, the publisher, architect, designer or House Plan Marketing Association should be contacted before proceeding. Awards are sometimes offered for information about home design copyright infringement.

    PENALTIES FOR INFRINGEMENT – Penalties for violating a copyright may be very severe. The responsible parties are required to pay actual damages caused by the infringement (which may be substantial), plus any profits made by the infringer commissions to include all profits and from the sale of any home built from an infringing design. The copyright law also allows for the recovery of statutory damages, which may be as high as $150,000 for each infringement. Finally, the infringer may be required to pay legal fees, which often exceed the damages.

9. The Builder’s Responsibility

Once you have the the plans approved by your local jurisdiction the project moves into the construction phase and the General Contractor takes over the project. It is the builder’s responsibility to assure that all work is in accordance with all applicable National, State, and Local Building Codes and regulations, all applicable Construction Standards, fire department standards, utility company standards, and best practices. It is the responsibility of the builder to arrange for all tests and inspections as required by the local building department. 

It is the responsibility of the builder to assure that all manufactured articles, material, and equipment are applied, installed, connected, erected, used, cleaned, adjusted, operated and conditioned as directed by the manufacturers and that all materials, equipment and components are new and of good quality. All appliances, fixtures, equipment, materials, hardware, etc. shall be installed in accordance with Manufacturer’s specifications and procedures. Builder shall follow all instructions to sustain and preserve all expressed or implied warranties and guarantees.

It is the responsibility of the builder to check all dimensions and details for overall accuracy appropriate to the local conditions and the final selection of materials such as masonry, floor joists, lumber, structural members, construction panels, roofing, etc., all of which can create variations in dimensions and details. For example, if standard lumber joists are used in place of engineered floor joists the floor-to-floor dimension would vary from the Plans and require revised stair dimensions and framing.

The General Contractor shall verify all dimensions, familiarize themselves with the existing conditions, and bring any discrepancies to the attention of the owner prior to submission of construction proposal and before beginning work. Do not measure off scaled drawings. Refer to the dimensions on the drawings. Verify all dimensions in the field prior to commencing work.

10. Changes to the Product or Services

The plans we sell are generic designs that are not specific to any jurisdiction or local codes, regulations, or laws. Your local codes and regulations could require necessary changes to the plans in order to be approved or may deem the plans do not meet local laws. We are not responsible for any required changes needed to meet local codes, regulations, or laws. We recommend working with a local architect, designer, engineer, or general contractor to make any required changes required to be approved by your local jurisdiction.

Before purchasing, be sure that you have selected the plan that best suits your needs and consult with any professionals as needed to confirm the plans will work in your jurisdiction.

By purchasing a plan you acknowledge that you have read and understood this return policy and take on full responsibility and liability for the use of the plans.
