▧ Disclaimer

By using this website, or entering into a business relationship with HALT CREATION TECHNOLOGY CORP., you (the Client/ User) consent to the following terms and conditions:

Timeframe and Delivery

HALT CREATION TECHNOLOGY CORP.’s working days are Sunday through Friday, 7am – 9pm Pacific Time, excluding Canadian, Chinese and German holidays.

HALT CREATION TECHNOLOGY CORP. makes all reasonable efforts to provide concepts and revisions to the Client within the timeframes agreed upon in initial consultations. If we are experiencing higher work volumes, your design will be scheduled for the soonest available design time slot, and you will be notified at the earliest possible time.

HALT CREATION TECHNOLOGY CORP. will save design files to a list of cloud drives for Client to review. The Client will provide feedback on the draft design.

HALT CREATION TECHNOLOGY CORP. will review feedback and update the design as needed. HALT CREATION TECHNOLOGY CORP. will continue the revision process within the specified terms to the Client’s satisfaction. Revisions will be submitted to the Client within the specified timeframe where possible.

Once the Client has approved the design, the Client will pay any balance owed to HALT CREATION TECHNOLOGY CORP., and HALT CREATION TECHNOLOGY CORP. will deliver the final file(s).

All requested formats of the approved design will be saved to Dropbox for the Client to download. HALT CREATION TECHNOLOGY CORP. is not obligated to maintain an archive of Client files, so Clients must download and maintain their files.

Revisions and Author Alterations

All revision requests, updates, corrections, additions or variations MUST be furnished to HALT CREATION TECHNOLOGY CORP. in writing. Although Revisions may be discussed verbally, no work will be done until the Client submits their revisions in writing.
The Client understands that all revision requests, updates, corrections, additions or variations may incur additional charges or project charge. Design work is not done free of charge unless otherwise arranged with HALT CREATION TECHNOLOGY CORP. explicitly and clearly in writing.

Unless otherwise agreed, HALT CREATION TECHNOLOGY CORP. will complete 1 large revision stage, and 2 minor revision stages. Revision requests are to be made within 7 days of receiving the proofs. If no revisions are requested within this time, it is assumed that the submitted proof is the accepted final. Any revisions made after this point are subject to additional charges.

The total project quote or rate provided by HALT CREATION TECHNOLOGY CORP. is based on complexity of the deliverables, timeline, and a reasonable average or specified number of revisions per design item, and associated number of billable hours. On the occasion the Client requests drafts or revisions that go beyond the scope of the original quote or rate, HALT CREATION TECHNOLOGY CORP. reserves the right to charge an additional hourly rate upon informing the Client that the request will incur an additional cost.

Payment Policies

Design and development services involve significant specialization and expertise, therefore design projects should be regarded differently than a manufactured product. HALT CREATION TECHNOLOGY CORP.’s rates ensure appropriate compensation for the time and expertise of our graphic designers, developers, art/creative directors and project managers.
All quotations given are estimates only, unless otherwise negotiated and noted in writing on a Client contract. Assuming no additions have been made by the client over the course of the project, the final invoice will not exceed the quoted amount by a margin of over 5% without prior notification and written authorization by the client.

Deposits and payments
All projects under $1,000 are to be paid in full before the start of the project.
All projects over $5,000 will require 25% deposit, and the balance will be paid in full before delivery of the final design files. All work remains the property of HALT CREATION TECHNOLOGY CORP. until final payment is received. The Client may not use or distribute any works until paid for in full.

Bi-weekly/ Monthly Billings
Trusted clients requiring long term and ongoing design work may be placed on a bi-weekly/ monthly billing cycle upon request. Clients on Bi-weekly/ monthly billing will be invoiced on every second Monday or around the last Monday of the month throughout the duration of the contract. Clients requesting a monthly billing arrangement are required to maintain current contact information and a valid credit card on file with HALT CREATION TECHNOLOGY CORP..
