Engagement Terms

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 here in 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”).

1- Scope of Services

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:

● Modification, abbreviation, edition or proof reading of the content. The information on each slide will remain the same on the re-designed version.

● Production of videos.

● Design of infographics or custom images.

● Creation of logos or any other corporate identity material.

● Production or purchase of photographic assets (stock photos or any other photos for specific industries). We work with open image libraries and use them to provide imagery that represents the look and feel designed for each slide, these photos are for illustrative purposes only. You can keep our suggested images or update them later to include your own photos. Alternatively, you can share your photos with our team along with the rest of the project’s assets, before the delivery of the first draft and our team will use them for the design process. Requests for specific photos are not part of our services.

2- Process

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 these terms for future reference. During the purchase process you will be required to book a call with our team to go over your design requirements and 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:

● Step 1. Briefing call: You will hold a briefing call with our team, to tell us about your objectives   and   style   preferences.   In   the briefing call our team will indicate if any additional Project Assets are required for the redesign process.

● Step 2. Uploading of additional Project Assets: You will upload any Project Assets not included   during   the   purchase   process and required for our team to redesign the presentation in accordance with your needs.

● Step 3. Redesign process: Your slides get redesigned and a first draft will be delivered to you in PDF format for review.

● Step 4. Revisions: You have up to two rounds of revisions included. Once you complete the   rounds   of   revision   or   approve the final version our team we’ll send you the presentation in the editable format requested upon purchase.

If   at   a   later   point   any   other   means   of   communication   are   deemed   necessary   by  our   team, booking them will be scheduled according to the team’s availability.  

The steps indicated above will be subject to the terms and conditions established herein.

3- Project Assets

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.

4- Proprietary Rights

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.

5- Fees

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 reach out to you to confirm if you want the  additional   slides   redesigned   and  send   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 over 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.

6- Revisions and Deliverables

The   delivery   time  will   depend   on   the   purchased   Services   (i.e. standard, expedited or rush) detailed in the Purchase Confirmation and you will be allowed two (2) revisions after the initial draft has been sent. Our delivery times go as follows:

● Presentation Redesign – Standard: four (4) business days delivery for the first draft. Two (2) revision with up to two (2) days delivery. Monday to Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

● Presentation Redesign – Expedited: two (2) business days delivery for the first draft. Two (2) revisions with up to one (1) day delivery. Monday to Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

● Presentation   Redesign   –   Rush:   24   hour   delivery   for   the   first   draft. Two (2) revisions with up to one (1) day delivery. Monday to Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

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. Any changes that fall outside of the scope mentioned prior will have an additional cost. 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.

7- Our Team's Schedule

Our working hours are Monday to Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time. If the purchase is made outside of our office hours the time starts running the next business day at 10:00am 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.  

A   follow-up   call   can   be   scheduled   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.

Our design team works under a non-disclosure agreement, to ensure that your content is kept confidential  at all times.

9- Service Cancellation, Issuing of Refunds and Indemnification

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.

Furthermore, Slidebean will have no obligation to indemnify the Client if the deliverable does not meet the Client’s expectations.
