PAYMENT

Deposits, Final Payments + Delivery

Once I receive your request for a quote, I will provide you with a finalized proposal that encompasses the comprehensive project cost, including any required deposits.

I reserve the right to request a 50% deposit before initiating work on your project. In the event such a deposit

is necessary, an invoice will be generated and delivered to you

via email, with the expectation that payment will be made within 15 days from the date of issue. By agreeing to the provided quote and/or submitting the deposit, you acknowledge your acceptance of these Terms of Service and the establishment of

a contractual agreement with Sheldon Glisson (Glisson Graphics).

I will issue an invoice for the remaining project costs and any associated services prior to releasing any logo files or final exports. Please note that I have the right to withhold delivery of finalized assets until full payment has been received.

I retain the right to invoice you prior

to the previously specified timeframe in the event that you become unresponsive or unreachable for more than 30 days.

You may reserve the right to

request a payment plan, which

may be accepted at my discretion. However, any payment plans must be mutually agreed upon in written form by both parties.

It is important to adhere to the requirement that all payments must be completed within 15 days from the date of issue.

Additionally, I maintain the right to impose charges for any fees incurred in connection with the initiation of collection and recovery procedures for unpaid accounts that exceed the 15-day limit.

FONTS + TYPEFACES

Licensing of Fonts or Typefaces

Fonts/typefaces obtained for the final logo and associated brand identity assets are governed by commercial licensing laws. A font/typeface license exclusively grants the owner the complete rights to use that specific font/typeface as necessary.

During the initial presentation of design concepts, I will furnish details regarding the typefaces employed and where they can be procured.

It is the client's responsibility to secure any essential font licenses, whether they are free or require payment. Please keep this in

mind when endorsing designs.

I am bound by legal restrictions

and cannot supply clients with unauthorized copies of any fonts/typefaces that I personally

own and have personally acquired.

If you wish to use a copy of a font/typeface I've obtained for commercial purposes, you must purchase the relevant font/typeface license and have it registered in

your name.

Typically, fonts used in logos do

not require licensing, as they are transformed into vector artwork and become uneditable. However, if you require a font for your independent design work that might need editing, like for a website or printed materials, you will need to acquire your own license through a desktop

license purchase.

Such licenses are commonly

available through platforms such as:

Fontspring.com

Fonts.com

MyFonts.com

TypeNetwork.com

RESTRICTIONS

Agreement Restrictions

These Terms of Service DO NOT

give you the rights or permission

to utilize, alter, modify, replicate, or borrow from any of the concepts, ideas, or sketches that I present.

All original preparatory materials, sketches, visual representations,

and unused concepts that are presented and considered shall remain the exclusive property of Sheldon Glisson (Glisson Graphics).

I retain the right to repurpose

and utilize these unused and prior concepts for future creative and client projects. In cases where an unused concept or design bears

a resemblance to the final logo, I will adapt and style it to ensure that the completed design is sufficiently distinct to avoid conflicts.

Unless a different arrangement is explicitly agreed upon, I uphold the right to exhibit the final logo and related designs in my portfolio

and across various online galleries, portfolios, showcases, awards, as

well as in printed materials, including books and magazines, both in the present and in the future. Such associated designs and artwork

can include commercial print design, business card design, stationery design, signage, desktop icons, mobile phone application icons,

and related imagery.

Any supplementary artwork and designs that are necessary for this project may be employed at my discretion for personal and professional purposes.

You are free to change, modify, adapt, and transform the final logo design as you see fit, but you do so at your own risk.

OWNERSHIP + COPYRIGHT

Ownership of Designs + Assets

All preparatory materials, sketches, visuals, and the electronic files used in the project shall be the exclusive property of Sheldon Glisson (Glisson Graphics). Ownership of the final artwork and digital files shall transfer to you ONLY upon the successful completion of the project's

final payment.

In the event that the final payment

is NOT received in accordance with the agreed terms, all designs and concepts will continue to be the property of Sheldon Glisson (Glisson Graphics) until payment is received.

Should issues arise with the

final payment, I retain the right to repurpose or adapt these concepts for other clients or use them freely

as part of my portfolio.

If the client attempts to utilize, modify, alter, replicate, or appropriate any of my ideas without fulfilling the agreed final payment, I will promptly seek legal counsel.

Sheldon Glisson (Glisson Graphics) reserves the right to showcase any artwork, ideas, or sketches created for this project in my portfolio as examples of client work. This typically extends to the completion of the project but is not limited to it. If you have specific requirements related

to confidentiality, non-disclosure, or

a need for project secrecy, please communicate this before

accepting the proposal.

The final payment ensures that

ONLY the agreed-upon logo design becomes your property, while any prior ideas or concepts remain mine unless a different arrangement

has been established.

TRADEMARK + COPYRIGHT

Registering Your Designs

Unfortunately, I cannot offer practical assistance with the extensive and typically expensive processes involved in initiating trademark, copyright, and legal name searches.

Should you wish to register the logo as a trademark, it is essential that you seek your own legal counsel for guidance and support in this matter.

CANCELLATION

Cancellation During A Project

Cancellation of the project midway, especially after ideas and proposals have been submitted, does not permit a refund of the previous payment. However, depending on

the extent of work completed and the overall project budget, a partial refund may be considered.

In the event that I am unable

to continue the project due to unforeseen circumstances, such

as illness, a portion of the overall budget will be returned, and in most cases, the entire amount will be refunded. If any completed work

can be utilized by another designer

to continue the project, a percentage refund will be based on the work completed, or other reasonable solutions may be explored.

Project Suspension

I maintain the right to suspend

any project if there is excessive micromanagement, a persistent

lack of trust, an inability to progress despite presenting a reasonable number of unique logo ideas and concepts, or reluctance to make the final payment. Adequate notice will be provided, allowing an opportunity to address the situation before considering project suspension or termination. However, it's essential

to understand that suspending or terminating the project will not result in any refunds, and all designs and work developed will remain the exclusive property of Sheldon Glisson (Glisson Graphics).

Force Majeure

In the event that I am unable to

fulfill any obligations outlined in

these Terms of Service due to circumstances beyond my control, such as an "act of God," government actions, terrorism, riots, war, accidents, material shortages, transportation deficiencies, or any other force majeure event, this failure will not be considered a breach of the agreement. I will promptly inform you of the existence and nature of the reason for the delay, and I will resume performance as soon as the relevant force majeure situation concludes.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

Loss or Damage of Creative Assets

You acknowledge and agree that Sheldon Glisson (Glisson Graphics) bears no legal responsibility for any losses or damages arising from

your use of any of my services.

This includes losses incurred due

to amendments, errors, or omissions in documents, designs, information, or any goods or services I provide.

It also encompasses your use of or reliance on third-party content, links, comments, or advertisements. Your use of, or reliance on, any information or materials that I create, modify, or design is entirely at your own risk, and I shall not be held liable.

You recognize that such

information and materials may contain inaccuracies or errors and,

to the maximum extent permitted

by law, you expressly release

Sheldon Glisson (Glisson Graphics) from liability for any such inaccuracies or errors.

I assure you that all designs I present will be original, and to the best of my knowledge, they will not infringe or plagiarize the work of others. I will conduct limited checks to verify

that my work has not inadvertently infringed upon another's design, including limited checks against

the WIPO database and reverse image searches across search engines. However, I assume no

legal responsibility for any losses

or damages related to legal

issues concerning the originality

or authenticity of my work. You agree

to conduct your own checks and due diligence regarding plagiarism and originality. If you have any concerns, please address this matter with me prior to commencing the work.

BRAND NAMING

Company Name Availability

You assume full responsibility for ensuring the legal availability of your company, product, or name before the commencement of the project.

In the event that any legal issues arise concerning the chosen name after the project's completion, it's important to note that no refunds can be provided, and I bear no

legal responsibility for any

resulting complications.

It is imperative that you confirm

the name's legal availability before committing to a logo project. Changing the project's name midway can be exceptionally costly, complex to implement, and lead to

significant delays.

In cases where a name change becomes necessary during a project, especially if substantial logo design work has already been presented,

I will have no alternative but to reevaluate the total project cost

to account for the required modifications. It is crucial to

ensure that the selected name

has undergone proper checks, is

not in use by another entity, and does not infringe on any registered trademarks or business names, among other legal considerations.
