Copyrights to Print Designs, Release from Liability

The Customer also assures T Shirt Printing UK that by personalising the product he is also not breaching any other rights held by third parties.
The customer releases T Shirt Printing UK from all demands and claims which are made due to the infringement of such third-party rights, as far as the customer is responsible for the breach of duty.
