The term “use” and variations thereof mean and include access, interaction, sending and receiving information, downloading and uploading, posting, browsing, making purchases (if applicable), obtaining customer service and engaging in any other activity or using the features and functions of the Site, as a visitor, registered user or otherwise. In addition, we may refer to you and your company, collectively, as “user”, “you” or “your” and may refer to Hanesbrands (including our subsidiaries, affiliates, brands and operating units) as “we”, “us” or “our”. We also sometimes refer to third parties, such as our suppliers, operational service providers, co-sponsors, promotional partners and others, and we will just use the term “third parties” when we refer to them.
Under this Agreement, we grant you a limited, revocable, non-transferable right to use the Site for the purpose of viewing or downloading product information, viewing inventory of products, placing and managing orders, searching for third party vendors (e.g., distributors, wholesalers, embroiderers), uploading logos or other approved content for the purpose of creating and marketing customized Hanesbrands products, and accessing any other features or functions made available to you on the Site for the purposes of your own business, all in compliance with this Agreement.

In order to use certain features and functions of the Site, you may be asked to register and provide certain information about yourself and your company, which you agree to input, update and maintain accurately and completely as long as you are a registered user. During the registration process, you will create a password. You are responsible for the confidentiality of your password, which, combined with your user name, form a unique user identification (“ID”).
