TERMS & CONDITIONS
Below are the Terms and Conditions that have been carefully written and placed to protect you ("The Client/Customer") and myself ("The Business Collage" known as TBC). It is recommended that you view these terms prior to purchasing or contacting me for projects.
PAYMENTS + PRICING
By submitting payment to us, you are consenting to the terms and conditions of this agreement on behalf of yourself, and/or your organization or business. All pricing is subject to change at any time and becomes effective upon posting to this site. For Monthly Retainer Services, payment is due in FULL at beginning of each month. For Monthly Design Retainer, designs must be used by end of month or client forfeits remaining designs unless client pays for a consecutive monthly retainer at the beginning of the following month. No rollover on Monthly Social Media Retainer. For projects $500 and under, payment in FULL is required before work will begin. For projects over $600, a 50% NON REFUNDABLE deposit is required before work will begin. You are paying for my time and to secure your spot on the project list. I work in order of payment received. Payment must be paid within 48 hours of receipt of invoice or the project is subject to cancellation and the spot will be given to the next client. All remaining unpaid balances will be due immediately upon receipt of your final approval of the design project. If payment has not been made within 10 days of receiving the invoice, a $10 fee will be charged monthly until the payment is settled. Additionally, no design service requests will be rendered until the payment is made.
WORK DOES NOT COMMENCE UNTIL PAYMENT IS RECEIVED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
REFUNDS + CANCELLATIONS
Due to the nature of work, TBC does NOT provide refunds for any services unless agreed upon. Ownership of all artwork, layouts and development will remain the property of TBC and remaining work will not be sent to the client for their ownership. For Monthly Retainer Services, services offered on month-to-month agreement with payment due in full at beginning of month. Client must use designs or social media services within month services being paid for, no rollover on social media services. Designs must be used by end of month or client forfeits remaining designs unless client pays for a consecutive monthly retainer at the beginning of the following month (i.e. In April, client only uses 8 of 10 designs and its April 30th, client decides to pay for Monthly Design Retainer Services for the month of May, the 2 designs rollover to May, client now has 12 designs to use before end of May). The only reason any monies will be refunded is in the event TBC is unable to do the project for unforeseen personal reason, illness or Acts of God.
TURNAROUND TIME FRAMES
Turnaround times vary per project, typically turnaround time is 5-7 business days if it's a revamp** for most projects, website design is 3-4 weeks or longer**. This is subject to change depending on my workload which will be disclosed to the client when inquiring. Turnaround times also depend if all your CONTENT (provided by client) is readily available and deposit is made. Failure to have all of content ready when making deposit, can cause a delay in your completion date. Due to the uniqueness of each project and client, more time may be needed for satisfied completion. Holidays are not included in the time frame of any project. **This is an estimated turnaround time and again is based on my current workload.
Orders Approved and Payment Processed* By 9AM PST / 11AM CT / 12PM ET: Turnaround time begins that day as long as all content is provided for project.
Orders Approved and Payment Processed* After 9AM PST / 11AM CT / 12PM ET: Turnaround time begins that day as long as all content is provided for project.
Rush Orders Available For Additional Fee starting at $25.
REVISIONS + DRAFTS
Draft images of ANY kind are for the purpose of approval only. They may not be copied, manipulated, or distributed to any other person or company other than those directly involved with the project without prior permission from TBC. Website Design comes with 3 rounds of revisions, additional rounds may incur fee, discussed and agreed per project. Client assumes responsibility for accuracy of ALL text and images provided for projects. PLEASE PROOFREAD CAREFULLY! Final approval for accuracy is the client/customer responsibility. The Business Collage is not responsible for incorrect information provided by you or for errors which were not detected upon your review of the proof. There will be an additional charge for corrections to the file after the final approval, regardless of the party at fault.
It is important to have a vision of some kind for your business so it can be relayed to me. If you want me to freestyle my ideas for your project, keep in mind our creative visions may not match. This can lead to more revisions than needed which will result in an additional fee. Clients are required to submit all high quality photos and/or verbiage (text) to be used for project. Pixelated and dull photos will not result in the best quality design. Please make sure all submitted content is spell checked and not subject to copyright. The Business Collage may revise submitted content if deemed necessary for the the project.
Copyrighting and/or trademarking your logo is solely up to the client. You, the client, have ownership of the final logo design for use in any media application that is beneficial to your organization. The Business Collage retains the right to use the final logo, or any versions of the logo created in the process, within printed and online portfolios, social media promotion including promotional materials such as newsletters and advertisements. The client also gives TBC permission to use client’s full name, and/or website address, for testimonial purposes on her website, or other business related media. The client understands that it is the client’s responsibility to copyright the logo design (www.copyright.gov) and/or seek trademark (www.uspto.gov/main/trademarks.htm).
The client shall inform the designer in writing before the project commences if any portion of any material or information provided by the client or if any portion of the project is confidential.
