The following Terms and Conditions of Service apply to all services provided by Azure Studio.
Additional terms may apply for some quotes. You must read the Terms of Service in conjunction with those additional terms. If there is any inconsistency between these Terms of Service and those additional terms, the additional terms will prevail (unless We expressly tell You otherwise).
Copyright is retained by Azure Studio on all design work including words, pictures, ideas, visuals and illustrations unless specifically released in writing and after all costs have been settled.
If a choice of designs is presented and one is chosen for the client's project, only that solution is deemed to be given by us as fulfilling the contract. All other designs remain the property of Azure Studio, unless specifically agreed upon.
Should Azure Studio, or the client supply an image, text, audio clip or any other file for use in a website, multimedia presentation, print item, exhibition, advertisement or any other medium believing it to be copyright and royalty-free, which subsequently emerges to have such copyright or royalty usage limitations, the client will agree to allow Azure Studio to remove and/or replace the file.
The customer agrees to fully indemnify and hold Azure Studio free from harm in any and all claims resulting from the customer not having obtained all the required copyright, and/or any other necessary permissions.
By engaging in any of Azure Studio’s services the client grants us authority to perform a credit check on either the person or business if we deem it necessary.
Upon accepting a job Azure Studio may request a non-refundable deposit upwards of $50 based on the work that is to be completed.
The client will be provided with an invoice at the completion of a project. At this time the remainder of the amount due will become payable. Any invoice queries must be submitted by email within 7 days of the invoice date.
Accounts that remain unpaid after 14 days from the due date, will incur a $150 admin fee, with a further $50 admin fee being added each subsequent week the invoice is unpaid.
If the invoice remains unpaid for over 6 weeks past its due date Azure Studio can employ the services of a debt collection agency and any associated costs of the service are passed directly onto the client.
If the client has had multiple overdue invoices that have required or been paid upon mention of a debt collector, the client may be default listed, which remains on their credit portfolio for five years. Any future work is then to then be paid in full before commencing and any overpayment will be reimbursed at the completion of work.
The client agrees to allow Azure Studio to place a small credit on printed material, exhibition displays, advertisements and/or a link to Azure Studio’s own website on the customer’s website. This will usually be in the form of a small logo or line of text placed towards the bottom of the page.
The client also agrees to allow Azure Studio to place websites and other designs, along with a link to the client’s site on Azure Studio’s own website for demonstration purposes and to use any designs in its own publicity and portfolios.
If any portion of these Terms is deemed to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable the remaining terms will remain in full force and effect.
These Terms are governed by and interpreted in accordance with New Zealand law in force in New Zealand and subject to the jurisdiction of the New Zealand courts.
