Guidelines for sharing a design in the Community Design library
The Community Design library features device designs created in Geppetto and shared by the individual who created the design. By choosing to share a design in the Community Design library, the creator is agreeing to release their design under the Creative Commons Licence (CCO 1.0), which allows that anyone can copy, modify, distribute and perform the work, even for commercial purposes, without asking permission.
Essentially, this means your design shared to the Community is accessible to anyone. They can copy it, make their changes, and save it as their own. Moreover, if you order a board you shared to the Community, anyone can buy the same board you designed and order through our store.
Terms and Conditions
Boards generated by Geppetto are intended for use for ENGINEERING DEVELOPMENT, DEMONSTRATION, OR EVALUATION PURPOSES ONLY and are not considered to be a finished end-product for consumer use. They are not tested for compliance with the limits of computing devices pursuant to part 15 of FCC rules, designed to provide reasonable protection against radio frequency interference. Operation in other environments may cause interference with radio communications, in which case the user at his own expense will be required to take whatever measures may be required to correct this interference.
In exceptional circumstances, Gumstix may, at its sole discretion, accept returns for items, provided they are unopened in their original packaging, and issue a refund minus a 15% restocking fee. You must have an RMA number before returning a shipment.
