PROJECT TERMS & CONDITIONS
By working with Forest Found, you are agreeing to these terms and conditions.
Forest Found is pleased to set out our Terms and Conditions, which will apply to the work we do for you. These Terms and Conditions and the Quote/Production Estimate supplied to you form the contract between us for the provision of Forest Found’s services.
1. Forest Found’s role
1.1. The Services: Forest Found will provide the services described in the Quote/Project Plan as presented. As an assignment develops, it may be that the scope of the required work changes. Where this is the case, Forest Found will seek to discuss it with you at the earliest opportunity in order to agree upon any variations to the scope of the Services and the Quote/Project Plan.
1.2. Corrections. We include 1 round of changes on all items following the presentation of an initial project. Revisions briefed thereafter will be charged according to Forest Found’s standard hourly rate card.
1.3. Information: To maximise Forest Found’s effectiveness we must work with you as a team. Often Forest Found’s work will be dependent on you (or your other advisers) providing information promptly. To avoid unnecessary verification, Forest Found will assume all information you provide is complete and accurate unless you tell us otherwise.
1.4. Termination: Should you wish to terminate the contract after the commencement of work, you will be invoiced for work already completed. Until all invoices are paid to Forest Found, any Intellectual Property relating to the project remain under the ownership of Forest Found.
1.5. Force Majeure: Forest Found shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform their obligations where such delay or failure to perform arises from circumstances outside Forest Found’s reasonable control.
2. Payment terms
2.1. Payment Terms: Invoices shall be settled by bank transfer into Forest Found’s nominated bank account within 14 days of the date on the invoice unless agreed otherwise. Forest Found retain ownership of all work until full payment has been made. A late fee of 1% of the invoice will be added if not paid within 60 days. This increases by 1% every month thereafter until paid.
2.2. Other Specialist Services: Forest Found’s estimate is exclusive of third-party costs such as photography, illustration, video production, sound recording etc unless otherwise included in the estimate. Forest Found may, unless you instruct us otherwise, seek such specialist services on areas outside our expertise. The costs of such services will be passed on to and will be quoted according, but only with your prior approval.
3.1. Scoping document: In most cases, Forest Found will provide a scoping document which details the functionality in the work we do for our clients, this includes but is not limited to a website, application or marketing campaign. Where the client signs and approves this scoping document, any changes beyond the scope will be handled as a new update and priced accordingly.
4.1. Content and Images: It is your responsibility to provide us with the required information about your business and marketing objectives. Forest Found takes no responsibility for errors in content supplied by you. Any changes thus incurred may be chargeable at standard rates. All content must be supplied in a suitable digital format unless agreed otherwise beforehand. Text should be supplied as a Microsoft Word document. Failure to supply material in an easily accessible format may result in additional cost being incurred for retyping text. Where the content which is provided is in a form where a significant amount of copy writing is required, a further charge may be made.
4.2. Information for charts, graphs, and infographics to be supplied in Excel. If we are required to retype large amounts of content, then additional costs may be incurred.
4.3. Client supplied images should always be high-res images at 300DPI for print purposes. If they are solely for use on the web, then lower resolution images are acceptable. Forest Found will assume that all images supplied to us are owned by the Client or have been purchased from stock libraries and are licensed to the client for use. We cannot use images taken from Google.
4.4. If you are using images of children that you have taken, then we will assume that you have been given the permission to use these images.
4.5. You grant Forest Found permission to utilise logos and any other company identity for the purposes of creating the project. You agree to indemnify Forest Found from any and all claims arising from your negligence or inability to obtain proper copyright permissions for all content supplied.
5.1. Confidentiality: Save as required by law, Forest Found will keep your documents and affairs confidential at all times, unless you permit disclosure or the relevant circumstances are already in the public domain. Think may, however, disclose your documents and affairs to:
(i) such of your other service providers as you inform Forest Found are involved in any assignment on which Forest Found is instructed;
(ii) Forest Found’s affiliates or related parties; and
(iii) any other service provider to whom Forest Found may properly delegate aspects of any assignment in order to provide a full range of services to you.
