Rejection / Cancellation of Projects
You shall not unreasonably withhold acceptance of, or payment for, the project. If, prior to completion of the project, you observe any non-conformance with the design or plan, you are to contact us promptly to notify us of these issues. We must be promptly notified so we may have the necessary time to correct these errors. Rejection of the project due to cancellation during its execution will result in a forfeiture of your deposit and the possible billing for all additional labor and/or expenses to date. All elements of the project must then be returned to Parea. Should you become non-responsive and/or unreachable for a period of time more than 20 days, the project will be put on hold and billing up to the point of halting work will be issued if billable hours are greater than the project deposit.
Rights of Ownership
Once a project has been delivered by us to you, and is fully paid for, we will assign the reproduction rights of the design for the uses described in the working agreement/contract. Unless otherwise stated in the working agreement, all editable working files remain Parea’s property.
According to the Copyright law of 1976, the rights to all design and artwork, including but not limited to photography and or illustration related by independent photographers or illustrators are retained by the artist/designer, or purchased from a stock agency on your behalf, remain with the individual designer, artist, photographer, developer, or illustrator. Unless a purchase of “All Rights” (A buyout) is negotiated with Parea and/or their authorized representative, you may not use or reproduce the design or images found therein for another purpose or project, including a reprinting or exhibition. You must contact Parea to arrange the transfer of rights and any additional fees must be paid in full before proceeding.
