You agree that any materials provided to us are proofed and approved to be used in your designs and are not owned or trademarked by a different entity. You are responsible that any materials provided can be legally used in our designs. We are not liable for the materials you provide as it pertains to license or trademark issues.

3.2 “Licensed Content” means content that we own or license, including artwork, stock photographs, audio, typeface, video, designs, and writings. While you are and will be, the sole and exclusive owner of all right, title, and interest in and to your graphic design project, the Licensed Content incorporated in your graphic design project is subject to the license described in the section below.  No rights are granted to you other than as expressly set forth herein.

Competitors are excluded from using our website to compete, monitor its availability, performance, or functionality for competitive purposes.

4. USE OF THE SERVICES

4.1 While we can accept unlimited requests, our output volume depends on many factors, namely depending on request volume and complexity. We will do our best to work with you to accommodate any priority items and your timelines but our suggestion is to not use our service for time-sensitive requests until you and our team are fully calibrated.

4.2 The “three business day” turnaround commences once ALL assets, including text and images, have been supplied. Requests or revisions will not be assigned if they are unclear, vague or missing required assets and information. Normally any request or revision assigned before 5 pm AEST will be completed by the next business day, no later than 7 pm AEST. Requests or revisions assigned after 5 pm AEST, during the weekend or on an Australian Public holiday normally will be completed in 2 business days. These timelines may change due to the nature of our business as ultimately determined by our team. We will work closely with you to ensure we work towards any deadlines you may have. This is not a guarantee, but a promise to do our best.

4.3 The materials on BrandStrong’s website are provided “as is”. BrandStrong makes no warranties, expressed or implied, and hereby disclaims and negates all other warranties, including without limitation, implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of intellectual property or other violation of rights. Further, BrandStrong does not warrant or make any representations concerning the accuracy, likely results, or reliability of the use of the materials on its Internet web site or otherwise relating to such materials or on any sites linked to this site.

4.4 While we do our best to minimize any mistakes, due to the nature of creative design we can not guarantee all files delivered will be 100% error-free. Upon file delivery, you agree to review and proof all files for any errors or omissions and notify our team if any changes/corrections are needed. We will do our best to rush any edits to correct the mistakes. BrandStrong is not responsible or liable for any losses or expenses incurred from errors or omissions.

4.5 BrandStrong is designed for the reasonable use of an average non-creative based small business. We are not meant to replace a full-time graphic designer – This means you need to treat this as a service, not an employee. If we find that you are not in alignment with our model, core values or are abusing our services or team in any way, we reserve the right to cancel your account. We also reserve the right to refuse jobs submitted based on them being ill-natured, deceptive, pornographic or illegal in nature. Again, this may result in the cancellation of your account.

Promotions, upgrades, and adjustments to existing plans are non-refundable.

5.5 We do not issue refunds due to change of mind. This is a service, rather than a product. As such, we provide the option to cancel your subscription at any time. No pro-rata refund will be given if you cancel part way through a month that you have paid for.
