TERMS & CONDITIONS

 

The following Terms and Conditions of Service apply to all products and services provided by Eastwood Studio. For simplicity in this document, ‘we’, ‘our’ or ‘us’ refers to Eastwood Studio and ‘you’ and ‘your’ refers to you the client.

General

All work is carried out by Eastwood Studio on the understanding that the client has agreed to our terms and conditions.

Copyright is retained by us on all creative design work unless specifically released in writing and after all costs have been settled.

If a choice of design is presented, only one solution is deemed to be given by us as fulfilling the contract. All other designs remain our property unless agreed in writing that this arrangement has been changed.

Any exceptions to these terms and conditions must be agreed and confirmed in writing between you and us prior to work commencing.

Project Acceptance

At the time of proposal, we will provide you with a written estimate or quotation.

Should you wish to go ahead, we request that you accept the quotation in writing (via email is fine) before work commences. This written acceptance binds the you to accept our terms and conditions.

Our Fees

Fees for all design and photography services to be provided by us, will be set out in the written estimate or quotation.

For projects over the value of £300.00 the client is requested to pay a non-refundable deposit of 25% of the total quoted fee before work commences.

For projects up to the value of £300.00 the client will be billed on completion of work.

Other Charges

Any charges for any additional services including, but not limited to; licensing stock imagery, fonts, website templates, hosting, domain registration, printers etc. are not included in the quoted fee. We will inform you of any such additional costs before making any purchases on your behalf.

Payment

You will be invoiced for any remaining balance upon completion of the agreed work. Payment is due by BACS or cheque within 30 days of the date of invoice.

We reserve the right to withhold print ready artwork, photography or delay publication of websites until the balance has been paid in full.

Copyrights & Trademarks

By supplying text, images and other data to us for inclusion in your website or other medium, you guarantee that they are either owned by you, or that you have permission to use them.

Any artwork, images, or text supplied and/or designed by Eastwood Studio on behalf of the client, will remain the property of Eastwood Studio and/or its suppliers in accordance with the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988.

The client may request in writing from Eastwood Studio the necessary permission to use materials (for which Eastwood Studio holds the copyright) in forms other than for which it was originally supplied, and Eastwood Studio may, at its discretion, grant this. Such permission must be obtained in writing before it will allow any of the aforesaid artwork, images, text, or other data to be used.

We love to show off our work and share what we have learned with other people, so we reserve the right to display and link to your completed project as part of our portfolio and to write about the project online or in print.

File Ownership

Charges for creative design work do not cover the release of copyright design files including indd, psd, png, eps, jpg or any other source files; if the client requires these files they will be subject to a separate quotation or ‘buy-out’ charge unless otherwise agreed.

Proof Reading

All design work will be proofed by you and written approval given (email is fine) before we will release it for publication or print. Whilst all efforts will be made by us to ensure the accuracy of work, no liability can be accepted by us for errors not highlighted by you prior to written approval for publication or print.

Alterations

The estimate/quotation price we supply to you are based on the number of days that we estimate we'll need to accomplish everything that you have told us you want to achieve. If you do want to change your mind or add to the project in any way, that won't be a problem.

Any changes that are over and above the estimated work, or work requested to be carried out after the acceptance of the draft design will be liable to a separate charge. We will inform you of any extra charges at the time.

You agree that we hold no responsibility for any amendments made by any third party, before or after a design is published.

Cancellation

Cancellation of any work in progress is requested by email.

You will then be invoiced for all work completed over and above any non-refundable deposit that you may have already paid. The balance of monies due must be paid within 30 days.

Disclaimer & Liability

Eastwood Studio makes no warranties of any kind, express or implied, for any and all products and/or services that we supply. We will not be held responsible for any and all damages resulting from products and/or services we supply.

We are not responsible for any loss, or consequential loss of data, or non-delivery of products or services, of whatever cause. While we take reasonable steps to investigate the materials we recommend, we accept no responsibility for the performance or quality of materials or any consequential loss arising from their failure.

We are not responsible for the cost of reprinting any material deemed poor quality from the printers. In the circumstance where the printer is at fault we will endeavour to get a full refund from them on your behalf, or a reprint free of charge.

We reserve the right to use the services of sub-contractors, agents and suppliers and any work, content, services and usage is bound by their terms and conditions. We will not knowingly perform any actions to contravene these and you also agree to be so bound.

We will not be held liable for failing to complete your project due to circumstances beyond our control, including loss of power supply, machine breakdown, loss of materials, fire, storm, flood, act of god, war, civil disturbance or terrorism.

Third Parties

We may contract with other creative professionals to provide services such as web development, photography, and illustration if we feel this will benefit your project. We will be transparent and open with you about this.

Backup

All work is backed up on multiple external hard drives every day so you can have peace of mind your designs are safe!

Confidentiality

You are required to inform us by email before the project commences if any portion of any material or information you provide is confidential.

Privacy Policy

Please note that your details will not be passed on to any third parties.
