My quote and any subsequent contract entered into will be subject exclusively to my Terms and Conditions as set out below. If you accept my quote and commission me, you are agreeing to the conditions as set out below.
The words “me”, “I” or “us” relate to Nick Cobb, or Write For You Ltd.
Before I start your project, I will require a deposit of 50%. Once this payment has cleared, the job is confirmed and a legally binding contract established between you and Write For You Limited. The project will be delivered to a deadline agreed by both parties, and to the brief set out. If you wish to alter the brief after we’ve started the work, any extra time taken by me in researching and writing your project is subject to being billed at the rate of £50 per hour, or part thereof.
2. Payment Terms
a) Work is quoted on a fixed-fee basis. No VAT (value added tax) is chargeable. To start the work, I require a 50% deposit either by cheque, PayPal or direct bank transfer (please contact me for details).
b) The balance of the fee (50%) is payable no later than 30 (thirty) days after the work has been sent over to you. Write For You Ltd reserves the right to charge interest for the period of delayed payment. If my terms cause you a problem, you must contact me immediately and we can negotiate a longer term. However, if no communication is forthcoming, interest shall be charged at £40 per day, for every day of non-payment after those 30 days.
(c) I understand and may exercise my statutory right to claim interest and compensation for debt recovery costs under the late payment of commercial debts act if I am not paid according to agreed credit terms.
(d) If payment is not made in accordance with the terms and conditions above then I may rescind this Agreement and recover damages, or, at my option, may exercise my statutory right to interest under the Late Payment Of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.
To ensure that you’re completely satisfied with the work undertaken, I provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee. As long as the original brief does not change in any way (see above), then should you be unhappy with the copy for any reason, I will keep working on it until you are. However, for this guarantee to remain in effect, you must return your amendments/revisions to me within one week of you receiving the first draft. If you cease to communicate with me for a period of longer than one week after each set of amendments/revisions, then the guarantee becomes null and void, and full payment becomes due. If I have not received full and final payment 30 days after sending the first draft over to you, I reserve the right to charge interest at £40 per day from thereon in, under the Late Payment Of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.
4. Process and Timescale
a) I will produce an estimate of charges to deliver copy to your requirements based on the information you have supplied. I reserve the right to amend this fee if your requirements change.
(b) I will produce a first draft in the timescale agreed. I will expect amendments/revisions on a first draft within one week of you receiving the first draft from me. If you require further changes, I will happily carry them out. But once again, I will expect amendments/revisions on the second draft within one week, and so on.
(c) If I have not received full and final payment 30 days after sending you the first draft, I reserve the right to charge interest at £40 per day.
(a) While we take all reasonable care in the performance of this agreement, we shall not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by the Client or by any third party arising from use or reproduction of any words or phrases created. Although we endeavour to do our upmost for each and every client, since the testing of sales copy is a vital part of internet marketing strategy, anticipated results can’t be guaranteed
(b) The Client agrees to indemnify us in respect of any claims or damages or any costs arising in any manner from the reproduction without proper reproduction rights of any words and/or phrases supplied to the Client by us.
(c) It is the Client who must satisfy themselves that all necessary rights and/or consents which may be required for reproduction, are obtained and it is acknowledged that we give no warranty or undertaking that any such rights and/or or consents have or will be obtained whether in relation to the use of names, people, trade marks, registered or copyright words and/or phrases. In the event that the words and/or phrases issued or reproduced by or with the authority of the Client then the Client shall indemnify us any loss or damage, proceedings or costs where such rights, releases or consents have not been obtained.
Copyright of the work remains with Write For You Limited until the invoice is paid in full. You may only use the copy in the specific business or business project for which you have commissioned it and you may not resell the copy, in whole or in part, for use by any third party.
You acknowledge that the copyright for all sample copy displayed on this site or sent to you during the enquiry/quote stage is held by Write For You Ltd, and is for your information only. You may not copy or adapt any of the sales letters, in whole or in part, for any use whatsoever.
We reserve the right to use your project in order to promote Nick Cobb Copywriter.com or any other website or company associated with Write For You Ltd.
Unless a rejection fee has been agreed in advance, there is no right to reject on the basis of style, composition, editing or my interpretation of your needs, amendments or circumstances. You are commissioning me based on the style and examples shown on my website or previous work. Copywriting is a joint effort between the Client and the copywriter. Therefore, if you ask me to write a first draft and then decide you don’t want to use me without continuing to further draft stages, or decide at any stage that you will finish the work yourself or by using another agency, I will charge you the full cost (100%) of my quote and payment terms noted in paragraph 2(b) apply.
