Terms And Condition

Terms And Condition

Acceptance of quotation and payment of deposit will be taken as acceptance of the following terms and conditions. Please ensure you have read and fully understand what is written below. Please contact us if anything is not clear to you.

1) All costs provided exclude Tax where applicable and are valid for thirty days from the date of the quotation.

2) The costs provided when quoting are guide prices based upon what we anticipate the creative, time and production requirements to be based on previous experience and on typical processes, plus client co-operation in provision of content, meeting deadlines and approval. Within reason, additional charges may be payable if there are significant variations to this, although the client would be made aware of this well in advance. Charges are unlikely to deviate from those quoted unless requirements change significantly.

3) No creative or development work will commence until the Ads For Social Media has received written (sign) approval of the quotation (by mail/email) and a minimum deposit of 50% of the agreed costs (unless otherwise agreed in writing). This ensures that the Ads For Social Media is fully equipped to provide the very highest levels of service and expertise, from project inception through to completion. This also applies if a project is delivered in ‘stages’, whereby a deposit will be required before proceeding to each new stage.

4) Should you find it necessary to cancel, we must receive an e-mail within twenty four hours after the order is place and you will not incur a cancellation fee, however any cancellation after will incur a fee of a quarter of the full purchase price.

5) Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the balance of payment will be due in full on project completion (e.g on delivery of printed items, publishing of website, sending of e-shot-e-mail delivery,etc): failure to make final payment at this point may result in delays in project delivery.

6) If a quotation has been provided where a job will be approached in ‘stages’, each stage will need to be paid in full on completion of each stage, before the agency is able to progress to the next stage. Where a job has been quoted in two halves (initial 50% deposit and final 50% balance) the balance of payment may be charged in full either on completion of the project or over a number of further staged payments at the discretion of the agency.

7) If any project exceeds the estimated timeline agreed or extends beyond twelve weeks from approval of quotation (whichever occurs first), then Ads For Social Media reserves the right to invoice 25% of any outstanding balance, with the remaining 25% payable on completion.

8) Any printing, fulfillment, mailing or third-party services that are provided by Ads For Social Media will require a minimum up-front payment of 75% (possibly higher in relation to value) of the agreed cost (this figure will be at the discretion of the agency and may in some cases be as much as 100%). Please note that the agency will be unable to proceed to this stage without receipt of or proof of this payment.

9) Unless otherwise stated above or previously agreed in writing, all invoices are due within seven days of any invoice date. Please see above policy

10) Unless otherwise agreed in writing, work will usually commence within twenty four hours working of deposit receipt. Any anticipated completion date provided by Ads For Social Media is subject to options chosen and client co-operation in provision of information, resource (logos, images,videos,templates,etc) and approval. Ads For Social Media will do its very best to ensure that agreed timelines are adhered to, but please be aware that circumstances, amends requested, or additional requirements may potentially result in delays. Time lines provided are estimated but the agency will not be held liable if the project over-runs due to delays caused by the client passing information or approval, or any third party issues or force majeure (act of God).

11) Costs provided allow for presentation of a minimum of two creative options per brief for the client to choose from. In the unlikely event that the client is not satisfied with the first round of presented work, the agency will develop a further round of additional creative development and presentation. If after this third round there is still no agreement on direction, the agency reserves the right to potentially bring to an end any agreement with the client with no refund of deposit or payments made previously.

12) Costs provided allow for a maximum of three sets of client amends after which time additional charges may become payable, although the client would be made aware of this in advance

13) At the end of each stage of the process (including – but not limited to – before sending an item to print or publishing a website etc) the client will need to ‘sign-off’ their approval either by mail or by email. No further development can be undertaken until the agency is in receipt of written approval confirmation. Any amends to work after signed approved may incur additional charges for further time spent, although the client would be made aware of this in advance.

14) Costs provided allow for occasional meetings at key stages for a reasonable length of time between the agency and client. Some meetings may incur additional charges for time spent, although the client would be made aware of this in advance.

15) Unless otherwise specified, costs quoted exclude the following where relevant: Tax; print; commissioned illustration, photography or stock images; image retouching; custom templates, templates, backgrounds, script, motion graphics, stock footage clips, images, editing, music, voice overs, content licensing and many more.postage, print-outs and postage,exceeding that allocated within the ‘standard disbursement charge’ above; web hosting (it will often be a prerequisite to host on one of our competitively priced servers, particularly if a website incorporates an e-commerce or content management system); couriers; other third-party costs incurred (such as merchant bank and payment gateway charges) etc.

16) It is assumed that unless otherwise stated, most copy and images will be provided by the client, although the agency will contribute to this (through headlines, and top-line messages etc) as a natural part of the creative process. Ads For Social Media is able purchased royalty free stock images,videos,templates,music, etc from our standard sources local or online (if required) will generally be priced at between $5 to $550 + Tax dependent on source, image,video ,music,templates,size and quality and licensing) to cover sourcing time and image costs.

17) Ads For Social Media recommends that clients use our preferred suppliers for print and is able to provide competitive quotations to ensure high quality and service is maintained until delivery of the final product. We always seek a number of quotations from our trusted print suppliers and provide a complete management service: from print sourcing to print-liaison to proof checking. Although clients are not contract-bound to use the agency to provide this service, it is highly recommended for quality control and peace of mind. If a client prefers to use their own print supplier, the agency will simply provide artwork directly to the client to manage and forward, and will be unable to monitor, advise or take any responsibility for the process or final output.

18) Ads For Social Media will never knowingly infringe any copyright or trademark and will deliver, to the best of knowledge, creative solutions that are original and unique to the agency.

This is recommended in order to ensure ongoing quality of service and is a mandatory requirement for websites incorporating a content management system (CMS) or e-commerce system.
