PROJECT START DEADLINE
A deadline to complete the project is in effect starting the date of this contract.  The Client has five days from the date of this contract to begin this project. The Client will begin the project by A) accepting the invitation to Notion, B) uploading all project files, and C) completing the project request form. After the fifth day, a $25/day fee will be accrued for every day the Client has not begun the project by not completing the three steps stated. The Designer will create the first draft of the design within 3 days from the time The Client submits the Project Request Form, given that the Client has uploaded all the documents, photos, copy/text, images, and media files required for the design.

REVISIONS
The Client may submit in writing their list of revisions/changes for the design. The Designer will respond with changes/new designs within 72 hours of the written request (within their business hours). The Designer agrees to provide the total number of revisions listed under deliverables. The Client will submit all revision requests in writing at the link provided in the Notion platform. The Client must approve all final designs before the deadline date. If the Client cannot decide on the design by the deadline, the Client may request to extend the deadline at the cost of $25/day for up to 7 days.  At the Client’s request, the Designer agrees to one additional round of revisions at $300.

MEETINGS
When requested by the Designer, the Client is responsible for booking and attending one follow-up meeting. The Client agrees to book and keep a minimum of one meeting per week as needed when requested by the Designer. The Client may reschedule meetings as needed. If the Client fails to cancel or reschedule a meeting and does not show up, a $25/fee per meeting missed will be accrued. The Client agrees to pay this fee.

72 HOUR RESPONSE LOOP & PAUSE POLICY
To complete the project by the deadline date, The Client and The Designer agree to collaborate on a shared “Assigned Tasks List” accessible via the client portal in the Notion platform. The tasks are listed with a due date. The Client agrees to complete the tasks within the due date. The Client agrees to respond to all communications, provide feedback, and submit additional files requested by The Designer within the 72-hour response window.  The Client agrees to communicate with The Designer solely through the Notion dashboard. The Designer agrees to reply within 72 hours, within the business hours posted in this contract. If at any time during the project, The Client is unresponsive beyond the 72-hour window, The Client agrees to pay a project pause fee of $25/day for each unresponsive day accrued.

MISSED DEADLINE & DEADLINE EXTENSIONS
The Designer agrees to submit the final design no later than 48 hours before the deadline. The Designer agrees to be bound by the deadline date. The Client agrees to a weekly meeting as requested by the Designer, submitting project files within 72 hours of the request, consistently completing the task posted on the shared tasks list within the 72-hour due date, and responding to all communications within 72 hours to make this deadline possible. If The Client fails to follow through on any of these terms and, as a result, the deadline is not met, The Client agrees to a $100/day late fee each additional day the deadline is extended.
The Client must approve all final designs before the deadline date. If the Client cannot decide on the design by the deadline, the Client may request to extend the deadline to $25/day for up to 7 days.  At the Client’s request, the Designer agrees to one additional round of revisions at $300.

PAYMENTS & CANCELATIONS
All payments are non-refundable. The initial payment does not constitute credit and, therefore, cannot be transferred or applied to other services. 
This agreement shall automatically terminate upon the Client’s acceptance of the deliverables. This Agreement may otherwise be terminated by the Designer or Client upon written notice to the other party. If the Designer terminates the project, the Client will be refunded in full.  If the Client terminates the project before its completion, no payments made will be refunded, and all designs remain the property of the Designer. If the Client is not happy with the design and has exhausted all revisions, no payments made will be refunded.


THIRD PARTIES
The Designer allows only one Client and/or company representative to be the contact person for this project.  No additional parties may be included in meetings, communications, or collaborations at any time.

RIGHTS
All design work belongs to the Designer up until the point of delivery when all payments are made in full. Once delivered, all work belongs to the Client, as a working Designer relinquishes all rights to the designs to the Client. The Designer withholds the right to post the artwork, websites, videos, and other designs within the Designer’s portfolio to showcase past projects. The Designer reserves the right to display the text “Designed by iDea187.com” at the footer of the Client’s website. The Client may request that the text not be displayed at $250.

CONFIDENTIALITY
While working for the Client, the Designer may come across or be given confidential Client information. This includes customer lists, business strategies, research & development notes, and other private information. The Designer promises to treat this information as if it is the Designer’s confidential information. When this contract ends, the Designer must return or destroy all confidential information. The Designer promises not to share confidential information with a third party.

WEBSITE LIABILITY
The Client agrees that he/she has the power to enter into this agreement and make all decisions on behalf of this business or organization. If the Client provides materials for the design, the Client agrees that the materials do not infringe on someone else’s intellectual property. The Designer is not responsible for any images or content provided by the Client during the design process that are illegally acquired and put there by the Client. Once the website is completed and delivered, the Designer is not responsible for any images or content found on the website that may have been illegally acquired and put there by the Client. For example, if the Client illegally takes photos that are not meant for commercial use and is sued, the Designer is not responsible and carries no risk. After project delivery, when the project is complete and closed, the Client agrees that the Designer is not responsible or liable for the website’s use, alterations, or additions made by the Client. The Designer accepts no liability for the Client’s sales, revenue, and/or the success of the business or website directly or indirectly, or consequently.

WEBSITE RESPONSABILITY
The Client agrees that the Designer is not responsible for the cost of any outside assets, including but not limited to hosting services, domains, SSL Certificates, third-party plug-ins or software, stock images, and premium fonts. The Designer cannot be held responsible for the functionality of any third-party plug-ins or software. 

The Designer tests the Website for compatibility with Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. The Designer cannot guarantee that the Website will display the same on all platforms. The website may, over time, need to be updated to match the upgrades on these platforms, as this is the nature of web design and the internet. Website maintenance and update services are not included in this contract. However, the Designer can make these services available at the hourly rate of $150.

After the project is closed and terminated, the Designer will provide seven days of support for up to 1hr of service. It is the Client’s responsibility to point out any errors on the website to the Designer before this seven-day window is closed. Once the seven-day support window is closed, the Client may request support from the Designer at the hourly rate of $150.


WEBSITE DELIVERABLES
The Client agrees that only the items listed on the deliverables list in this contract will be provided. Any additions requested, such as copy, more web pages, plug-ins, videos, or others, will require a new and separate contract. To begin an additional contract for added services, this project must be completed and paid for in full. The Client may not make any additional requests once this project is completed. However, The Client may request a new contract for services for this project at the hourly rate of $150. 

GRAPHICS DELIVERABLES
Once the graphics created are agreed upon and approved by the Client, The Designer will create a set of Branding Guidelines for your Branding Identity, including logo permissions and appliances, logo variations, color codes, and font allowances. This will be created into a. PDF file so you have access to it and can hand it over to other designers (printing, web, etc.). In addition to this, we will create a profile image and a cover illustration for your social media accounts.  The Designer will prepare and organize digital files into downloadable folders containing the following files in their corresponding formats: Original Logo: PNG, JPEG, PDF, SVG, and. EPS. For any additional formats or logo variations the Client requires, the Client will inform the Designer before the deadline. The Client may not make any additional requests once this project is completed. However, The Client may request a new contract for services for this project at the hourly rate of $150. The Designer will store files for all projects for up to 90 days from the project completion date.

The voiceover will be the female voice used in all of the iDEA187 videos the Client has previewed. The video will be delivered in 16:9 format, in an MP4 file, and delivered as a digital file transfer. The video will be in color, in the English language. The CLIENT is the owner of the final video and can use this video for their own company without spatial or temporal limitations. The Client cannot resell the stock footage or music footage provided by the Designer for this project, as the Client has limited rights to the media provided by a third-party stock footage service. The Client may request up to two revisions for each video produced. The Client must approve the final video or request all changes in writing before the deadline date of this project. Once the deadline date is reached and the project is closed, the Client can request additional changes at the rate of $150 per hour.
