Terms of Service

Please review these Terms of Service in its entirety before purchasing an avatar from scorchedE.C.H.O Avatars. All customers must abide by the terms of the License purchased.

Last Updated June 12th, 2024
Due to the digital nature of our products, all sales are final and in general no refunds will be issued. Returns are not possible. To be eligible for a refund, the product must be found defective as a fault of scorchedE.C.H.O Avatars and deemed unfixable.

After January 1st, 2023, all parties involved in a purchase from scorchedE.C.H.O agree to treat this as a living document to reflect any and all new additions or changes as needed. Therefore, this page is subject to change from time to time, and all parties will be upheld to the most recent version of this document.
Parties who agreed to these Terms of Service before January 1st, 2023 are bound to the Terms given to them at the time of purchase.

avatar warranty

All avatars sold after January 1st, 2022 now come with a 6 (six) month "warranty". Any issues with the Avatar, whether caused by EchoedAvatars or VRChat updates, will be fixed until this "warranty" is over. The "warranty" does not begin upon purchase; rather, it will start upon the release of the Avatar.

Purchases made after this "warranty" expires do not guarantee a functioning avatar and the purchase is made at the customer's own risk.

"Popular demand" avatars will receive updates and fixes beyond this date if needed as demand for the Avatar continues.
