Proof Agreement
The client shall be entitled to full ownership of all final artwork created during the project upon full payment of the agreed fee. Note: The ownership of the Original artworks files belong to Oooze ltd, unless a ‘rights release fee' has been agreed upon and paid by the client (you).

Exceptions
If a change is requested, we will do everything we can to make the correction before the development starts, but we cannot guarantee this. We accept no responsibility, under any circumstances, for any mistakes present on the completed work, as agreeing to a proof absolves us of all liability (see “Proof Agreement” above). Any changes made after a proof is signed off will result in additional charges.

Payment Terms
Customers agree to pay a deposit of 50% of the final bill upon ordering and to pay the outstanding balance prior to completion and delivery, unless, in the event that instalments have been agreed and payment dates of which have been outlined and agreed before the project has commenced. The final installment will be payable once all services have been fulfilled, unless otherwise agreed. Work will not commence until the deposit has been received. The deposit is required in order to reserve studio time and is therefore non-refundable once work has commenced, as we are unable to claim back any studio time that has passed. Existing customers agree to adhere to the terms stated on the invoice, this being strictly 30 days, unless otherwise stated.

Price Breakdown
The invoice we send you will be itemised, showing the cost of the design and research process, as well as the production itself. Supplying us with suitable material will, therefore reduce the time spent on design and, thereby, the final charge. Oooze ltd has a standard invoice for work as and when each stage is completed, for example after concept, artwork, development etc. By making a payment for a stage you are entering into an agreement with Oooze ltd that this stage of work has been completed, any additional work including alterations to work done will be charged at our standard hourly rate of £60 per hour.

Credit Terms
For invoices not settled within the agreed credit terms, we reserve the right to with-hold all artwork pertaining to the project untill such time we are satisfied that the terms have been met.

Copyright
Unless negotiated and agreed in writing, the copyrights of general artwork, commissioned artwork, illustrations, website design, programming & copy belong to Oooze ltd. If you supply us with material, it is your responsibility to obtain all necessary copyrights for its use, and we assume that you possess these. In such cases, the copyright belongs to you. As part of these terms you agree to indemnify Oooze Ltd from any claim which arises regarding the use of material with which you supply us. We reserve the right to use any artwork we produce for the purposes of promoting our services unless you request otherwise in writing and it has been mutually agreed upon. Unless otherwise agreed all websites designed by Oooze ltd must retain a link back to Oooze Creative website.

Consequential Loss
Oooze ltd accept no liability whatsoever for consequential or third party losses, resulting in a delay in delivery howsoever caused.

Force Majeure
Oooze ltd accept no responsibility if we are unable to carry out any provision of the contract for any reason beyond our control including (without limiting the foregoing) Act of Allah (God), legislation, war, fire, flood, drought, failure of power supply, lock-out, strike or other action taken by employees in contemplation or furtherance of a dispute or owing to any inability to procure materials required for the performance of the contract. During the continuance of such a contingency you may, by written notice to ourselves, elect to terminate the contract and pay for work done and materials used, but subject thereto shall otherwise accept delivery when available.

Liability
Oooze ltd shall not be liable for any loss to the customer arising from delay in transit caused by circumstances beyond Oooze ltd's control.
