The following Terms and Conditions of Service apply to all products and services provided by Daxie Designs.
All work is carried out by Daxie Designs is on the understanding that the customer has agreed to Daxie Designs' terms and conditions.
Copyright is retained by Daxie Designs on all design work including words, pictures, ideas, visuals and illustrations unless specifically released in writing and after all costs have been settled.
If a choice of design is presented, only one solution is deemed to be given by Daxie Designs fulfilling the contract. All other designs remain the property of Daxie Designs, unless agreed in writing that this arrangement has been changed.
All proofs must be checked carefully. Daxie Designs cannot accept responsibility for errors after artwork has been signed off by the customer.
Charges for design services to be provided by Daxie Designs, will be set out in the written estimate or quotation that is provided to the customer. In most instances the customer may be paying for the print of the design, not for the ownership. The design remains the property of Daxie Designs unless a customer has been invoiced and paid for the specific design file and once payment has been received, the files have been transferred. Designs cannot be used if they have not been paid for and with prior notice.
All payments are to be made in full before an order in processed, unless prior arrangements have been paid for a 50% deposit or monthly retainer.
Returned cheques will incur an additional fee of £20 per returned cheque. Daxie Designs reserves the right to consider an account to be in default in the event of a returned cheque.
An account shall be considered default if it remains unpaid for 30 days from the date of invoice, or following a returned cheque.
Daxie Designs shall be considered entitled to remove Daxie Designs and/or the customer's material from any and all computer systems, until the amount due has been fully paid. This includes any and all unpaid monies due for services, including, but not limited to design, sub-contractors, printers, photographers and libraries.
Removal of such materials does not relieve the customer of its obligation to pay the due amount. Customers whose accounts become default agree to pay Daxie Designs reasonable legal expenses and third party collection agency fees in the enforcement of these Terms & Conditions.
