The Company provides a range of services, including Custom design, template-based design, and enhancement of slides based on drafts/content submitted by the Customer (“Services”), as detailed on our website and Platform.
The provision of Company Services occurs on a project basis, as requested by the Customer. When placing an order, the Customer uploads draft slides with text and/or graphics onto the Platform. The Platform then generates an estimate price and delivery time, which should be considered as an offer for sale, and it carries legal enforceability. By confirming the quoted price and paying for the same the Customer extends a purchase order. A contract for the Company’s provision of Services comes into effect once the Company formally accepts the Customer’s offer in writing. Please note that the price automatically generated on the Platform might be open to adjustments until the Company officially accepts the Customer’s offer. The initially quoted price and delivery timeframe do not encompass any additional services chosen by the Customer. Moreover, the Platform does not evaluate whether certain slides require revision or enhancement. Should this be necessary, the Company will communicate with the Customer to discuss any alterations to the price and/or delivery schedule. Such communication signifies a purchase order revision and may require the customer to pay an additional fee for the change in scope. A contract for the Company’s provision of Services takes shape when the Customer accepts the Company’s offer. By agreeing to the quoted price, the Customer enters into an obligatory and unalterable agreement.
