TERMS & CONDITIONS

 

By using About Logo Design, and signing up as a Client, you agree to be legally bound by these Terms and Conditions, including those terms and conditions incorporated by reference. Please read these terms carefully. If you do not accept these Terms and Conditions stated here without modification, you may not use the About Logo Design service. About Logo Design may revise these Terms and Conditions at any time by updating this posting. You should visit this page periodically to review the Terms and Conditions, because they are binding on you. In these Terms and Conditions, About Logo Design, the About Logo Design service, all services related to it, and all text, images, photographs, user interface, "look" and "feel", data and other content included in it from time to time (including, without limitation, the selection, coordination and arrangement of such content) are referred to as the "Web Site" or “Service.” About Logo Design is a registered trademark of Starmedia Communications INC., a Canadian Corporation.


1. WebSite Generally.

(a) Description. The About Logo Design Service is an online offering where individuals or entities that have signed up with About Logo Design as clients (each, a "Client") can post specific assignments and project descriptions, including illustrative samples or other media, (each, a "Creative Brief"), revise those Creative Briefs (“Revision Brief”) and obtain responses (each, a "Response") to those Creative Briefs or Revision Briefs from designers retained by About Logo Design(“Members”). Clients will be provided the Service according to the Packages chosen by Client as detailed in Section 1(g). Client’s Responses will be created iteratively through a drafting cycle of Creative Briefs, Revision Briefs and Responses, ultimately resulting in a final Response to Client’s various Creative and Revision Briefs.

(b) Creative Brief and Responses. Each Client is solely responsible for preparing and posting detailed descriptions of each of its Creative Briefs, including providing samples illustrating Client’s Creative Brief (“Samples”), the applicable deadline, and other relevant terms and conditions. For each Response that the Client wants to a Creative Brief, a term sheet (a "Term Sheet") will be generated that will contain, and be subject to, the terms and conditions established by the Client for the Creative or Revision Brief, including the deadlines and any terms or conditions required by Client. About Logo Design is under no obligation to review a Creative or Revision Brief or Term Sheet for any purpose, including accuracy, completeness of information, quality or clarity. About logo Design may decide, in its sole discretion, to deny a Creative or Revision Brief, or a Term Sheet.

(c) When About logo Design provides a Response to a Client, the Client shall review the Response. If a Client fails to inform About Logo Design that the Response is not reasonably responsive to the Term Sheet or Creative Brief within 30 days, the Client will be deemed to have accepted the Response. If a Client notifies About logo Design that the Client thinks a Response is not reasonably responsive to the Creative Brief, the Client shall submit information regarding amendments or modification to be made to the initial Response (“Revision Brief”). After providing a Revision Brief, Client will be provided a subsequent Response that conforms with the additional criteria requested by Client.

(d) Responses. About Logo Design is not responsible for the content of Responses developed to the extent that such responses are based in conformity with Client’s Creative or Revision Briefs.

(e) Revisions. Revisions generally consist of 2 additional compositions that incorporate changes requested by the Client in the Revision Brief. The purpose of the revision process is to create Responses that move forward in a specific direction as determined by the Client. The Client may request significant changes in the 1st and 2nd revision, and the Responses might be quite different in nature from the original version chosen. Revision requests that depart from the current composition will be honored and completed in the same timely manner, however; About Logo Design reserves the right to charge $90 an hour for each such Revision. No revision work, which requires payment, will be started without authorization from Client.

(f) Client Accounts.

a. Payment. Clients registering for the Service must pay for the Service via credit card, or other payment method expressly authorized by Starmedia Communications INC. through About Logo Design, at the time of registration for the Service. Clients will be charged for the Package(s) selected. If Client pays its account by credit card, Client will be required to provide a valid credit card number and your credit card billing address when they register as a Client. About Logo Design will email Client a receipt for the transactions for which Client is billed. Our fee policy for Clients may change and we may decide to impose additional fees on Clients at any time. Such fees will not, however, apply to sevices submitted before such change in fees by About Logo Design.


b. Service duration. Client agrees to provide timely responses to About Logo Design after receiving status notifications from About Logo Design. Client shall have 30 days to respond to each set of Responses submitted to Client for review. If after 30 days the Client has failed to so respond, About Logo Design will assume the Service complete and the Service shall be deemed to be complete. At such time, About Logo Design shall have no further obligation to Client, and Client shall pay About Logo Design all fees and expenses associated with work performed by About Logo Design.


2. Eligibility, Access, Use and Service.
