For all projects we require agreement of our Terms of Service. 

Each new project or item of work will be outlined in a brief produced by Multiple States. Each brief will contain an overview of the work including a cost and schedule.

What do both parties agree to do?

You

  • As our customer, you have the authority and ability to enter into this project outlined in the brief on behalf of your company or organisation.
  • You are responsible for contracting payment with any third party provider such as webfont, hosting and domain providers.
  • You agree to adhere to the Payment Schedule set out within the brief.
  • If you are unhappy with the direction our work is taking, you’ll pay us in full for everything we’ve produced until that point and cancel the contract.
  • The price within the brief is based on the number of hours that we estimate we’ll need to accomplish everything you’ve told us you want to achieve, but we’re happy to be flexible. If you want to change your mind or add anything new, that won’t be a problem as we’ll provide a separate estimate for those additional hours.

Us
