Please read this Legal Notice carefully because it governs your use of logodepot.co.uk and affects your rights and liabilities under the law.
Conditions of Business :
In these terms of business ‘we’ or ‘our’ refer to logodepot.co.uk (‘the Company’).
Your relationship is solely with the Company, and the Company has sole legal liability for the work done for you and for any act or omission in the course of that work. No officer, consultant or employee of the Company will have any personal legal liability for that work whether in contract, tort, negligence or any other cause of action. In particular, the fact that an individual officer, consultant or employee signs in his or her own name any letter or other document in the course of carrying out that work does not mean he or she is assuming any personal legal liability for that letter or document.
We will agree with you at the outset the scope of the work. We are not responsible for matters that are outside the scope of the work agreed. All prices are as quoted on the logodepot.co.uk website. The Company will not be liable for any delays caused during the design process. You must pay to us, on demand, all reasonable costs, charges or losses sustained or incurred by us (including, without limitation, any direct, indirect or consequential losses, loss of profit and loss of reputation, loss or damage to property and those arising from injury to or death of any person and loss of opportunity to deploy resources elsewhere) arising directly or indirectly from any of the following acts or omissions by you: fraud, negligence, failure to perform or delay in the performance of any of your obligations.
Work will commence following full payment and order details either through the website or by email.
The prices quoted on the logodepot.co.uk website are promotional prices. These prices are for the studio time for the initial set of designs. We agree as part of the promotion to make an unlimited amount of changes to the initial designs until you are satisfied at no additional cost.
We endeavour to turnaround initial designs within the agreed timescale for the package purchased. Revisions can take several days but will ultimately depend upon the revision requested. The promotional prices are based on volume business and therefore there may occasionally be small delays in the turnaround. The company will not be liable for any delays caused during the design process. Whilst every effort is made to ensure there are no delays, it is your responsibility to contact the company in the event that designs have not been received within the agreed timescales. The company will not be held responsible for delays caused due to non receipt of emails.
Feedback provided in relation to the design must be clear and constructive. It must be sent by email.
Only email confirmation to sign off/approve the design will be accepted. Once a design has been signed off and final files created the design process will be considered complete and any further changes will be chargeable.
We reserve the right to charge extra where:
• the brief changes substantial from the original, this includes but is not limited to change of name, after making changes to the initial brief, requesting a complete new set of designs based on new feedback.
• you request to finalise more than one design.
• no communication has been received for 6 weeks or more, unless previously agreed with the Company.
We are not responsible for print errors. If you choose to use us to print you will receive a proof which must be agreed before print commences. If you print with another company it is between yourselves to agree a proof. Colours differ on screen and in print, you may provide us with pantone or CMYK references at the beginning of the order and we will happily use them. Some printers require specific artwork to be supplied, if you do not plan to use us for print please send us artwork specifications for your chosen printer before we start the design process, otherwise further costs may be charged if we have to make changes after final files have been sent.
Despite our best efforts we may make a mistake, by which we mean any breach of our duties to you. If we do, and are liable to compensate you, you agree that our liability is limited in the following respects:
• It is the Company that is liable, not an individual partner or member of staff. You agree to make no claim against an individual except for fraud
• Our maximum liability for any claim by you whether in contract, tort (including negligence or breach of statutory duty), misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise arising in connection with the performance, or contemplated performance, of the work you have requested shall be limited to the price paid by you for our services (unless a different amount is agreed with you in writing)
• Where any claim relates to a mistake made by us, this overall limit applies whether the mistake affects just one piece of work we do for you or several, so long as it is the same or a similar mistake
• For the purpose of the overall limit, more than one mistake on a project or transaction is considered as one mistake
We have no liability for any indirect or consequential loss or loss of anticipated profit or other benefit and shall not be liable for any of the following:
loss of profits; or
loss of business; or
depletion of goodwill and/or similar losses; or
loss of anticipated savings; or
loss of goods; or
loss of contract; or
loss of use; or
loss due to corruption of data or information; or
any special, indirect, consequential or pure
economic loss, costs, damages, charges or
any damages paid by you or loss suffered by
you arising out of any allegation or claim that
any Input Material breaches any Intellectual
• We are not liable to the extent that our mistake results from something you do or fail to do (such as giving us the wrong information, not giving us information at the time we ask for it or failing to supply appropriate Input Materials)
• If others are also responsible for your loss, our liability is limited to our fair share, whether or not you are able to recover the rest from the others.
