Legal Stuff Terms + Conditions

The following Terms and Conditions of Service apply to all products and services provided by Wild Monkey.

All work is carried out by Wild Monkey on the understanding that the client has agreed to Wild Monkey’s terms and conditions

Copyright is retained by Wild Monkey 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 design is presented, only one solution is deemed to be given by Wild Monkey as fulfilling the contract. All other designs remain the property of Wild Monkey, unless agreed in writing that this arrangement has been changed.

Proofs are submitted with all drafts of work for the client with acceptance of the delivered proof. The client is accepting the terms and conditions outline on said proof as well as the terms and conditions presented below.

Project Acceptance

At the time of proposal, Wild Monkey will provide the client with a written estimate or quotation (if requested). The Terms and Conditions can be read on Wild Monkey’ website. A copy of the written estimate or quotation is to be signed and dated by the client to indicate acceptance and should be returned to Wild Monkey. Alternatively, the client may send an official order in reply to the estimate or quotation which binds the client to accept Wild Monkey’ terms and conditions. No work on a project will commence until either document has been received by Wild Monkey.

Design Changes

Charges for design services to be provided by Wild Monkey, will be set out in the written estimate or quotation that is provided to the client. At the time of the client’s signed acceptance of this estimate or quotation, indicating acceptance of the Terms & Conditions, a non-refundable deposit of 50% of the quoted fee will become immediately due. Work on the project will not commence until Wild Monkey has received this amount.

Charges for Other Services

Charges for any additional services over and above the estimated design, will become fully payable (100% of the quoted amount) at the time of estimate or quotation acceptance.

Payment

The client will be provided with an Approval Form and/or Review of the work provided with an Invoice prior to final publication. At this time the remainder of the amount due will become payable and the client will also be required to sign and submit the Approval Form to Wild Monkey. Accounts which remain outstanding for 30 days after the date of invoice, will incur an extra charge of 2% per month of the outstanding amount.

Payments may be made by cash, Major Credit Card, or Money Order and/or previously agreed electronic funds transfer (No checks are accepted).
