If you should require any additional features, additional slides or consultation calls, additional costs will be applicable. In the event you should require any of the above, please contact our Customer Support team so we can provide a quotation.

6- Revisions and Deliverables

The delivery time will depend on the purchased Services (i.e. standard or expedited).

The project will be split into two sections: Writing and Design.

   

a) Writing

During the Writing portion of the project, the team will work on a plain text (Google Docs) and create the ”Content Draft” that will have:

-    The outline of the slides.

-    The final copy (text) that will be included in the slides.

-    Descriptions of diagrams and other design assets.

The turnaround for your first draft is 4 Business Days (standard delivery projects) or 2 Business Days (expedited delivery projects) from the moment you have the kick off call with our team and all information has been uploaded.

For the Writing portion of the project, you will be allowed up to three (3) rounds of revisions. The turnaround for revisions is 2 Business Days (standard projects) or 1 Business Day (expedited projects) from the moment you request your changes on the content draft.

Once you receive the first version we can answer questions about the deck, include any missing information previously discussed, narrative and other related content tweaks. Revisions do not include the incorporation of any new ideas or new business proposition. If you require a new approach on your Pitch Deck due to a shift in your business additional costs will be applicable.

Once the Content Draft is approved and sent to the design team, no additional revisions in the content are allowed.

b) Design

During the Design portion of the project, the team will transform the Content Draft into the final, designed presentation. This presentation will be delivered in the format of your choosing (Microsoft PowerPoint, Google Slides, Apple Keynote or Slidebean).

For the Design portion of the project, you will be allowed up to two (2) rounds of revisions.

Our estimate delivery times will be 4 Business Days (standard delivery projects) or 2 Business Days (expedited delivery projects) and the following terms and conditions should apply:

For the writing portion of the project, if all information and documentation has been submitted at the time of the briefing call, the delivery time for the first draft of the deck starts running after the briefing call is held. If additional information or documentation, not requested by our team, is uploaded during the twenty-four hours following the briefing call, the delivery time starts running at the time the additional information is provided. If additional information or documentation is requested by our team during the briefing call, the delivery times starts at the time you provide such additional information and documentation. For the design portion of the project, if all Project Assets have been submitted at the time of the design survey, the delivery time starts running after the information is submitted. If additional Project Assets, not requested by our team, are uploaded during the twenty-four hours following the design survey, the delivery time starts running at the time the additional Project Assets are provided. If additional Project Assets are requested by our team during the design survey, the delivery time starts running at the time you provide such additional Project Assets. The revision time delivery for both deck and presentation 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 deck and presentation needs are defined by the details filled in the upload stage after purchase, the Project Assets you have provided and our briefing call. In regards to the designed presentation, once you have received 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. Revisions of the presentation do not include any amendment or revision of the content, since such content has been previously approved by you. The Client’s point of contact (as established in section 7.) 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 version of the deck or the presentation is sent, you will have up to two (2) weeks to respond with feedback, once that time has passed the project will be placed on hold, and 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. 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 uploading the documents you still need to share extra files with us the delivery time will start once our team receives said files. This delivery time is for the first draft of the deck and the presentation, not for the final version.

We will keep communications via email and through the revisions platform only. No calls are scheduled as part of the Services, except for the kick off call with our team.


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.

8- Non-disclosure of Information

All information, documentation and other Project Assets provided by the Client to Slidebean shall be considered as confidential information, included but not limited to: concepts, diagrams, drawings, data base, spreadsheets, contracts, know-how, investment plans, marketing plans, sales plans, business plans, marketing strategies, trade secrets, and any other technical, accounting, legal and/or commercial information. Therefore, Slidebean commits to maintain under strict confidentiality and in consequence not reveal, trade or disclose, in whole or in part, the confidential information provided by the Client.

Our team works under a non-disclosure agreement, to ensure that your content is kept confidential at all times. Once the project is completed and delivered, the Slidebean team will no longer have access to your slides, and all your information will be permanently and irreversibly deleted from our database.


9- Service Cancellation, Issuing of Refunds and Indemnification

The Services can be cancelled at any time prior to the moment our team starts working on your deck. That means you can request the cancellation of the Services up to twenty-four (24) hours before the kickoff call. If the cancellation of Services happens at this moment, we can issue a partial refund of your purchase, the amount of the partial refund will be determined at our sole discretion based on the time incurred by our team in your project.

If the cancellation of the Services happens at any time after the indicated moment and our team has started to work on your deck, 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 writing the deck and designing your presentation, therefore, no refunds will be issued due to creative differences that may arise between the Client and Slidebean.
