Deposit and Termination
Should You or a Client enter in a formal agreement with the Company, or simply agree to receive copywriting services from Us, we reserve the right to ask for a Deposit of 25% before providing any copy or services. Once a copywriting project is started and the deposit paid, the copywriting fee agreed between Us and the Client for the full project is deemed to be incurred unless We have agreed payment milestones in the proposal or service specification. The Client has no right to withhold or reduce payment based on any critical response to, or appraisal of, the copy written for the Client. The Client is paying for the time taken to complete the work or Service, quantum meruit. This includes the time put aside to make revisions in expectation of feedback. No refunds will be given once the deposit has been paid, unless the proposal/agreement has been agreed to be terminated by both parties. In this event, the amount of refund is at the sole discretion of Copy by Dan. For avoidance of doubt, full payment made to the Company at the end of the project is taken as an agreement by the Client that the Client is happy and content with the copy or services provided and therefore no refunds will be subsequently given under any circumstances.

In the event of cancellation or unlawful termination of the copywriting services agreed to in the proposal/agreement, by the Client for any reason, the Client shall be required to pay to the Company, as agreed, damages and not as a penalty the full amount of any third party costs, which have been committed to by Us and, in respect of cancellation on less than five working days' written notice, the full amount of the fee set out in the proposal/agreement and the Client agrees that this is a genuine pre-estimate of Our losses in such a case.
