The following terms of service provide throughout information of the dynamic of work between Slidebean, Inc. (“us” or “Slidebean”) and the client (“you” or the “Client”). The terms indicated herein shall be legally binding for both parties. The specifics of the Services, such as number of slides, price and delivery time are the ones detailed in the confirmation sent to you via email upon completion of the purchase process (the “Purchase Confirmation”).
For the provision of our Services our team will work with a finished, editable presentation provided by you, which shall be in English and on either PowerPoint, Keynote, Google Slides or Slidebean formats.
The deliverable is a re-designed version of the presentation you provided, in accordance with your objectives, instructions, style preferences, branding requirements and any project assets you submit to our team.
Our Services do not include:
Once you agree to these terms of service and complete the purchase process you will receive a Purchase Confirmation detailing the Services to be provided by us and a copy of this terms of service for future reference. During the purchase process you will be required to upload a finished and editable presentation for our team to re-design as well as the corresponding Project Assets (as defined in section III). Once you have completed the purchase process, our Services will be provided as follows:
The steps indicated above will be subject to the terms and conditions established herein.
In addition to the finished and editable presentation, you shall provide our team with any information, specifications, images, logos, corporate identity material and any other project assets that you want to be taken into consideration for the redesign process (the “Project Assets”). Our team will redesign your presentation based on the uploaded material and any details given by you on our briefing call. All Project Assets not uploaded during the purchase process must be submitted during the following twenty-four (24) hours to the briefing call and our design team will not consider any materials provided afterwards. Any additional assets required by our design team will be requested after we start working on the slides, upon the team’s discretional criteria.
If you have any specific instructions on your presentation’s design, please include such instructions as detailed as possible at the time the Project Assets are uploaded so our team can redesign your presentation in accordance to your needs. Any specifications not indicated at the time the Project Assets are uploaded or during our briefing call, as well as any ambiguous instructions will not be taken into consideration by our design team.
You will be the sole responsible for providing our team with all the information, documentation, materials or assets required for redesigning your presentation. Our team will not make any changes to your presentation (either the first draft or the final version) to adjust or include any information, documentation, materials or assets you failed to provide in due time.
You hereby warrant that: (i) you own all rights, titles, and interest in, or have full right and authority to permit the use of the project assets submitted for the provision of our Services; (ii) the use of this Project Assets does not infringe the rights of any third party; and (iii) you are in compliance and will remain in compliance with any licensing agreement in relation to any of the Project Assets.
You shall indemnify and hold harmless Slidebean from any and all damages, liabilities, costs, losses or expenses arising out of any claim, demand or action by a third party alleging intellectual property rights infringement on the Project Assets provided by you and included in the presentation.
For the sole purpose of providing the Services, you hereby grant Slidebean a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the Project Assets solely in connection with the presentation.
The Purchase Confirmation indicates the number of slides you have purchased and the corresponding price. Our team will only work on the amount of slides stated on the Purchase Confirmation. If more slides are uploaded the team will pause the design process and reach out to you on the following two (2) business days to confirm if you wish the additional slides to be redesigned and sent a quotation for said slides. If our team does not receive confirmation on the purchase of additional slides, during the following two (2) business days of reaching out for confirmation, the team will continue to work on the presentation and ignore the slides that go pass the purchased number. If you wish to have more slides redesigned after the purchase has been made, you can also contact our Customer Support team and they will instruct you on how to purchase additional credit. The uploading or purchasing of additional slides will cause delays to the delivery times established in the following section.
The delivery time will depend on the purchased Services (i.e. standard or expedited) detailed in the Purchase Confirmation and you will be allowed one (1) revision after the initial draft has been sent. Our delivery times go as follows:
If all Project Assets are submitted during the purchase process, the delivery time for the first draft starts running after the briefing call held with our team. If additional Project Assets are uploaded during the twenty-four (24) hours following the briefing call, the delivery time starts running at the time you receive the upload confirmation of your files containing the additional Project Assets. Any failure by the Client to provide such additional Project Assets during the indicated period will cause delays in the delivery time. The revision time delivery begins after you share the complete feedback with our team. The complexity and extent of the requested changes could affect the delivery time of the revisions, our team will inform you if that is the case.
The presentation needs are defined by the details filled in the upload form after purchase, the Project Assets you have provided and our briefing call. Once you receive the first version we can work on visual changes, layout adjustments, image selection and other related tweaks. Revisions do not include the incorporation of any new ideas or graphics. The Client’s point of contact (as established in section XII.) will be in charge of requesting any changes and approving the project deliverables. If the point of contact is changed by the Client during the Project, the new contact point will only be allowed to request the changes detailed above. Slidebean shall not be responsible for any creative differences between the Client’s team and therefore will have no obligation to adjust or make changes to the project deliverables due to the Client changing its point of contact.
After the first redesigned version is sent, you will have up to 2 weeks to respond with feedback, once that time has passed the project will be placed on hold, will no longer be available for any future revisions and will be considered as accepted by you. After 3 weeks the files will be permanently and irreversibly deleted from our database.
As part of the Services, the team will generate deliverable presentation files for you. Such as the final draft of the presentation, which represents the culmination of any and all revisions performed as part of the Services, once the final draft is delivered the project is labeled as completed and no new edits are available under that request.
The final deliverable file formats will vary depending on the Services acquired upon checkout and indicated in your Purchase Confirmation. PowerPoint and Keynote purchases will only be delivered on PowerPoint or Keynote formats accordingly. Slidebean purchases will only be delivered on a valid Slidebean account as Slidebean Presentations and Google Slides purchases will only be delivered as Google Slides presentations to a Google account given by you.
Our team will identify the deadlines indicated by you at the time of purchase and work to ensure that the deliverables are submitted on time. Any failure by you to provide all the necessary Project Assets will affect the date by which any potential files will be delivered.
Our working hours are Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. If the purchase is made outside of our office hours the time starts running the next business day at 9:00am Eastern Time. However, our team needs to have all the presentation assets in order to begin, if after filling the upload form you still need to share extra files with us the delivery time will start once our designers receive said files. This delivery time is for the first draft of the redesign, not for the final version. The delivery of the final version will be as detailed in the previous section.
Our Services include email communications only, no design calls are scheduled as part of the Services, except for the briefing call and the follow-up call (the follow-up call will be schedule only if our team considers it necessary to clarify any doubts).
If at a later point any other means of communication are deemed necessary by our team, booking them will depend on the team’s availability and will be scheduled on a case by case basis.

The Services can be cancelled at any time prior to the moment our team starts working on your slides. That means you can request the cancellation of the Services after first receiving the Purchase Confirmation via email and before submitting this document and the attached NDA duly signed.

If the cancellation of the Services happens at any time after the indicated moment and our team has started to work on your presentation, no refunds will be issued under any circumstances. Furthermore, you acknowledge that our Services are provided in accordance to your objectives, instructions, style preferences, branding requirements and any Project Assets you have provided in due time and that you rely on our team’s expertise for redesigning your presentation, therefore, no refunds will be issued due to creative differences that may arise between the Client and Slidebean.
