This site and the content within is offered as a service for informational purposes only; Upper Hand Designs will not be held responsible for the accuracy or availability of information made available on this site or on linked social media pages, and will not be responsible or liable for any error or omissions in that information.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

The Upper Hand Designs site and its original content, features, and functionality are owned by Upper Hand Designs and are protected by international copyright laws. Services producing media works will include the usage rights (which are given to the client upon payment), but the material produced can still appear on the Upper Hand Designs website and social media pages, along with the individual artist, designer, photographer or videographer’s portfolio and social media.

 

PAYMENT AND CREDIT TERMS

Payment is due within 14 days of the invoice issue date, and usage and ownership rights will not be passed on to the client until full payment has been made. Products being delivered using cloud storage links will remain active for two weeks, after which they will become deactivated. This requires a full re-upload onto the drive, which will only occur once payment has been made. A failure to pay the full amount before the invoice’s due date will result in a $50 dishonour fee.

Any time after this due date (14 days after the invoice issue date stated on the top of the invoice document), you may be contacted by phone or email to follow up the issue.

Currently accepted methods of payment include;

Direct Transfer– A direct transfer to the account specified on your invoice. For ease of communication, please use your invoice number (stated at the top of your invoice document) as the description for the transfer. This prevents any confusion with payments of similar amounts. Your contact will reach out to you if after 14 days payment has not been made. If you have made payment and receive a follow up call or email, you will need to provide a receipt of transfer in order to avoid any dishonour fees.

 

PROJECT TERMINATION AND HOLDING CLAUSE

Should you terminate your project before completion, you will be invoiced for the time spent on the project by your designer/photographer/videographer and standard payment terms will be maintained (see above).

If you would like to put your project on hold (extending the due date any time past a project’s initial due date), a $50 holding fee will be added to your invoice. During this time, you will still be considered a client of Upper Hand Designs and will be considered as using this service. Please make sure you continue to consider the terms and conditions during this time.
