Operational "Plain Speak"
For projects with a fee of $1,000 or less, a nonrefundable advance payment of 50% of the project’s total service price must be made. When the fee is greater than $1,000, an advance payment of 33% of the total service price must be remitted. [Upon approval, an installment arrangement (for projects with a fee greater than $1,000) can be made before the start of work.] During the term of service, should any extensive reworking be required as a result of a requested amendment, additional charges will be assessed and added to the final payment, which must be made prior to delivery of your final draft.
Scope of Work
All work performed for you will be in accordance with the instructions you or your designee specify in your confirmed order and/or according to any written amendment agreed upon during the course of the work. The work performed will be based upon the information you provide during our intake process and any which you supply afterward or direct us to secure on your behalf. We cannot be held responsible for including any inaccurate information that you or your designee provides.
Allowable File Formats
We accept text, data, and image file submissions in the following formats only: .doc, .docx, .pdf, .xlsx, .xlsm, .ppt, .pptx, .pub, .jpg, .mp3, .mp4, .png, and .zip.
We provide all documents to clients as Microsoft Word and PDF files. Standardly, we render and deliver each document in Word .docx format; but, upon request, we will supply any document/text in compatibility mode, allowing it to be used in previous Word versions (i.e., Word 97-2003 format). The Group and its representatives shall be held harmless for any issues arising from the inability to open and read any file we deliver to you.
Impact of Files Inaccessibility
You agree to hold the Group and its representatives harmless for any issues regarding message transmission, e.g., email address inaccuracy, spam setting prohibition, and internet connectivity failure, which may result in delayed delivery of project drafts, including the final draft.
Any inability or delay you experience in accessing a file the Group or any of its representatives sends you will not be grounds for extending the work period established in your order. Nor will The Formey Touch be held responsible for any delays caused by your actions or inaction.
Any contact with a Group representative, i.e., principal, contractor, or assignee, apart from via the means provided on the Site or by said representative shall be considered a violation of the Company’s terms and conditions.
The Formey Touch assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, misdelivery, or failure of any messaging system in the transmission of Customer, Visitor, or Group communications (including file attachments).
Any identifying information, data, or claims included in any of the The Formey Touch’s works created for you will be included based solely on the information provided by you or your designee(s). The Group shall be held harmless for the production of Content that contains erroneous, fictitious, or unauthorized details supplied by you or your designee(s).
Rough Draft Restrictions
Any rough draft generated for and transmitted to you for review purposes may be used as reference material only. Use of such as a final work product is strictly prohibited.
Final Draft Revisions Policy
For a period of 14 days following our delivery of your final draft, we extend the courtesy of making minor revisions—at no additional cost. Any such requested revisions may not deviate from the original work order. Minor revision requests honored after the 14-day complimentary revision period will be made at the editing rate standard for the given amendment to such projects.
Because The Formey Touch prizes customer satisfaction, we work hard to deliver final products that exceed your expectations. In the unlikely event that you believe we do not (at a minimum) meet your needs, upon your emailing us of your concern within 30 days after final product delivery, we will investigate your claim and seek to resolve any issue we confirm. Should we be unable to resolve the issue to your satisfaction, we will refund all payments made beyond your nonrefundable advance payment, including any made for amendment services rendered after the 14-day complimentary revision period. Payments made for services rendered under a rush request (48 hours or less) are not eligible for refund.
Beyond 30 days after the final draft submission, your order will be considered closed and any refundable fees deemed nonrefundable.
Our service liability is limited to the amount of money we receive for your order.
