SamuraiBaby.com Terms of Service
The following Terms of Service ("TOS") contain the terms and conditions that guide your use of our website (SamuraiBaby.com) and related services (“Site”). These TOS clearly define your rights and responsibilities and what you can expect from SamuraiBaby.com. As such, these TOS may be adjusted from time to time because of frequent changes in Internet technology and relevant law. We recommend that you constantly check these TOS for such changes. Your continued use of the SamuraiBaby.com Site after any changes means that you have taken these changes into consideration and accept the new TOS.
Our service is provided through the SamuraiBaby.com Site, which allows users to create custom art with kanji characters and purchase prints and gifts made from these creations through Shutterfly.com. Users can also purchase custom art made from sending a photo to SamuraiBaby.com.
SamuraiBaby.com will only knowingly provide its services to parties that can lawfully enter into and form contracts under applicable law. If you are under the age of 18, but at least 13 years of age, you may use SamuraiBaby.com services only under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who agrees to be bound by these TOS. SamuraiBaby.com is not intended for children under the age of 13.
Kanji names are created for artistic purposes, and are not intended to represent the true meaning of a name. Japanese use kanji for their names, but wouldn't usually use them for English names. The kanji names on SamuraiBaby.com are meant only as an artistic interpretation and carry NO GUARANTEE that the names are correct or that the kanji are represented correctly. The kanji names on SamuraiBaby.com have been created in the following way:
1. Each Japanese kanji has multiple pronunciations and meanings.
2. Only certain kanji are used by the Japanese for names.
3. Based on the pronunciation of the English name, kanji that have similar sounds and are good for using in names are considered.
4. From these kanji a combination is chosen.
Care is taken in doing the best match in terms of combining the right sounds and most attractive meanings, but these are still just artistic interpretations rather than the only "right" meanings for the names. As the same sounding English names can have different spellings (Ann, Anne) and variations (Ana, Anya, Anita, etc.) there are multiple combinations of kanji that can be used for a name that sounds the same. Also, when applying Japanese kanji to English names, there are some limitations in terms of sound, since the Japanese language has less sound combinations than English.
