CLIENT PARTICIPATION AND SPECIFICATIONS AT START OF THE PROJECT, AND THEREAFTER:
By agreeing to this, you the client acknowledge that you have been given the opportunity to provide/describe what are considered initial specifications and guidelines for your graphic project. This is accomplished through the form which is the first page of the order form out which includes detailed and specific questions intended to assist the designer in their initial designs. In any case where you the client/customer elect not to answer, or decline to provide details, you are acknowledging a willful waiver of client input, and give your consent for the designer(s) to exercise full interpretation, being held blameless for any designs which may result, in the unfortunate event that the client is not satisfied.
SCOPE OF PROJECT:
The initial number of designs varies by project, and in no case may the client request additional new designs, in the event that they do not approve of the ones which were submitted. The number of designs presented is presumed to have satisfied the initial number of designs as stated in the package description. In the event that the client requests additional designs, beyond the scope of their package (not including any unlimited revisions, which is a material change to an existing design, and not a redraw, and are not charged or considered to be redesigns), they are subject to additional charges of $80.00 USD per designer hour, prepaid in increments of three hour blocks. Any design requests outside of the specific stated scope or quote of the package are also subject to the same hourly charge, in prepaid one hour increments, and are non-refundable.
Payment in full for any and all products and services to be provided by TheGulfBranding.com under your Contract is due in advance of the commencement of any work by TheGulfBranding.com. TheGulfBranding.com shall be entitled, in its sole and absolute discretion, to withhold any products or services it is otherwise obligated to deliver or provide under your Contract until such time as payment in full has been received therefore. TheGulfBranding.com will notify you of any additional charges under your Contract prior to commencing performance of its obligations there under.
DELIVERY AND ACCEPTANCE:
Upon completion of its products and/or services in accordance with the Terms and Conditions set forth in your Contract, TheGulfBranding.com shall deliver your product and/or service to a temporary location designated by TheGulfBranding.com for your review. TheGulfBranding.com will notify you via e-mail of such completion and delivery, and the manner in which you may access the temporary location for purposes of reviewing your product and/or service. You shall have 60 business days from the date of delivery to said temporary location to notify TheGulfBranding.com in writing of your acceptance or rejection of the product and/or service. Your failure to notify TheGulfBranding.com in writing of your rejection of the product and/or service within said 60 day period shall constitute your acceptance of the product and/or service. In the event you reject the product and/or service, you shall notify TheGulfBranding.com in writing of your rejection within said 60 day period, including a detailed explanation for such rejection, following which TheGulfBranding.com shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide a substitute or replacement product or service as soon as practicable. Upon your written acceptance of the product or service, or any substitute or replacement product or service, TheGulfBranding.com shall release and deliver the same to you, to such location and in such format as agreed upon in your Contract. This project will be determined to be closed if we do not have written, phone or in person contact from 60 days from the last revision. The project may be re-opened only upon TheGulfBranding.com’s discretion.
We guarantee your 100% satisfaction with our graphic design work or your money back minus a USD60 service fee (includes processing charges and discourage misuse of our services).
Initial graphic design (up-front fees for the 1st round of designs) that you have paid can be refunded if you are not satisfied with our work (minus service fee). There are No Refunds for Custom Packages. We require half project amount as up-front deposit for any package that you select.
A refund only applies if, after the first draft and prior to any requests for changes or revisions, the client requests one. Otherwise, if any revisions, redraws or similar requests are made, no matter how minor, the client is assumed to have consented with proceeding forward with the graphic design process and thus waiving their right for a refund under these stated provision.
EXERCISING REFUND PROVISION:
If, upon being presented with the INITIAL graphic designs, the client elects not to pursue the project any further, and requests a refund, in writing by email, to support@Thegulfbranding.com, a refund in accordance with the terms of this website will be issued.
A Refund will be issued upon request, EXCEPT in the following cases:
- Refunds do not apply if we do not hear back from you for more than a week after completing initial designs (Project is considered closed after inactivity of three months)
- Refunds do not apply to projects that have requested any changes and/or alterations to a chosen sample.
- Refunds do not apply if you have approved a design.
- Refunds do not apply to upgrades and/or additional services provided and displayed to the client.
- Refunds do not apply to slogan production and/or ideas.
- Refunds do not apply if the company we are designing a graphic for closes, changes their name, or their activity.
- Refunds do not apply to projects that include Calligraphy / Illustrative Design concepts in the initial designs.
