Terms and conditions
Priority Copy provides fee estimates and proposals at no cost, which may include guidance on the approach businesses take and suggested media for a project. I cannot accept liability for any action businesses take, or do not take, as a result of acting on my advice.
For complex projects, or if work is required to clarify the scope and timescale of the work, the proposal will become chargeable and will be invoiced separately from the main project.
I require full payment upfront for projects up to the value of £400.
I require a deposit of 50% of the total fee upfront for projects with a value of £401 and above. This is payable on receipt of invoice.
The remaining fee is then due for payment on receipt of final copy (I will provide an invoice for this). Payment is on strict 14-day terms.
If I don’t receive a response from you within 14 days of submission of the copy, the project is considered complete and an invoice issued.
Project fees include up to two rounds of changes, after submission of the initial draft, providing that the suggested amendments fall within the specification of the agreed brief.
If you wish to change or add to the scope of the agreed brief after the project begins, additional fees may apply.
In the event of late payment, an additional interest fee may be charged in line with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.
Additionally, you will be required to pay any recovery costs I incur while chasing your payment.
If you cancel the project part-way through and before submission, I charge 50% of the agreed fee. Once I have submitted an initial draft the full fee will apply.
Copyright/ownership of content
Ownership and copyright of content remains with Priority Copy until full payment when it passes to you. I will pursue my intellectual rights to ownership of content if used before full payment.
You accept all responsibility for any copyright issues which arise from the publication of content produced by me that summarises, rephrases or otherwise refers to third-party sources at your request and as part of the agreed project.
Errors and omissions
I will make every effort to avoid errors, inaccurate implications, omissions, misrepresentations and other inaccuracies in the copy and content I produce for you. However, the final responsibility for published materials remains with you.
Please review the copy and content thoroughly before publishing or printing, as the ultimate responsibility for the copy rests with you. I cannot accept responsibility or liability of any kind for any loss or damage, whether material, financial, commercial or reputational, that you incur as a result of your choosing to publish materials that I have worked on.
Unless we agree otherwise, by working with me you grant permission for me to:
Refer to you as a client on my website, social media, in marketing literature and elsewhere
Describe the work I have done for you
Display the work I have done for you
Display representations of any designs produced as part of our work together.
If proposals contain dates and schedule guidelines, please be aware that if you miss calls or meeting with me, are late with a payment, or fail to supply requested information by agreed dates, it may not be possible to stick to the planned schedule for the project.
I cannot be responsible for deadlines missed due to circumstances completely beyond my control.
Please note that missing agreed dates may result in additional delays to a project. Workflow, the availability of third parties, weekends and holidays can all impact on timings.
If you have any questions about these terms and conditions, please get in touch.
