If CLIENT’s creative asset(s) does not get approved, TinglyMedia will make the necessary revisions via editing to get it approved.
TinglyMedia is not a performance marketing agency. TinglyMedia is not responsible for the performance of the creative asset(s) content once produced.
Pets may be unpredictable and cooperation is not guaranteed. If a pet is uncooperative and additional production time is expended, the CLIENT may be subject to additional fees and/or creative asset(s) delivery will be delayed.
TinglyMedia is not liable for loss or any consequence of loss of products or information during shipment.
- Force Majeure:
TinglyMedia cinematographers will perform their tasks to the best of their ability, but TinglyMedia accepts no responsibility for force majeure, act of God or other unforeseen circumstance including but not limited to equipment failure, power outages, inability to attend and perform services due to illness, and/or any other situation beyond TinglyMedia control. In the event that unforeseen circumstances occur, TinglyMedia Cinematographers will use best efforts to provide similar services.
- Refund Policy:
TinglyMedia operates as a business and we expect CLIENTS to understand and respect our policies. Our goal as a creative asset(s) production company is to bring the highest value per dollar spent by our CLIENTS, and in order to help us in that pursuit, we need to cover expenses and fuel our operations. Therefore, we require payments to be made upfront and on time in respect to the services offered to CLIENT.
THIS IS OUR REFUND AND CANCELLATION POLICY AND BY HIRING TINGLYMEDIA FOR SERVICES YOU ARE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT AND YOU AGREE TO ABIDE BY OUR POLICIES.
creative asset(s) Production, Editing & Photography
creative asset(s) production, photography and editing require extensive resources, consumes our time and incurs internal expenses. Therefore, once a payment or deposit is made, it is non-refundable. If a project gets cancelled, delayed or postponed by the CLIENT, then all monies paid will be retained by TinglyMedia and if applicable, an additional cost will be charged to the CLIENT for all work completed beyond what was already paid for. No exceptions.
CLIENT has up to 90 days to fulfill their order by sending their product to TinglyMedia. After the 90-day period is up, the original price of their purchase may be credited to their account for purchase of another package and may be subject to pay the difference due to price increase.
Credit card info is stored within our payment processing system so that we can charge the CLIENTS card for services provided OR we may also send an invoice so that you can pay from your end. Claiming that you didn’t provide your card info or that you are not aware of such charges is illegal and fraudulent.
If any chargeback or payment dispute is caused by CLIENT to a bank or credit card company, then CLIENT services and/or projects will be suspended and in some cases all work will be undone (reversed) without notice. Furthermore, the amount of the chargeback fee will be issued to CLIENT (to recover any fees passed on to us by the credit card company).
In Addition, any outstanding balances accrued as a result of the chargeback(s) will have to be paid in full before we restore service, deliver any files, or commence any work.
PLEASE CONTACT US TO ADDRESS ANY BILLING ISSUES AND WE WILL GLADLY HELP YOU.
Requesting a chargeback or opening a dispute for a valid charge from us is fraud. Chargebacks are never a legal or appropriate means of obtaining a refund. All disputes will be challenged by our lawyers with sufficient evidence from our records.
The CLIENT’s payments covers/pays for labor and presentation media in the production of the agreed creative asset(s), picture and/or editing services. Every effort is taken by TinglyMedia to provide the CLIENT with agreed product, and dissatisfaction of its contents, although regrettable, will be deemed subjective and is therefore not open for interpretation by the CLIENT as grounds for refunds or compensation, for which the creative asset(s)grapher is not liable.
Rush Delivery fee is non-refundable. RAW footage purchased is non-refundable and non-returnable.
In a period of 30 days from the date of completion and delivery of the creative asset(s), the original edited footage will be deleted. Replacement of the creative asset(s) due to loss by CLIENT will be considered as a new purchase and full price must be received.
Once the full fee has been paid, CLIENT will have copyright ownership of the completed creative asset(s). TinglyMedia may use any parts of it for valid business promotion (e.g. demo tape, demo creative asset(s) for Studio website, captured stills for web or additional marketing, etc). Full rights to the Raw Materials may be purchased for an additional fee of $149, if Raw Materials are not included in the purchased package. Raw Materials must be purchased within 60 days of creative asset(s) delivery or TinglyMedia will retain full rights to the Raw Materials as described in the “Publicity Rights” section above.
8. Delivery Date:
A review copy of the creative asset(s) will be ready within 15 business days (minimum) from the shoot date, provided the CLIENT has supplied TinglyMedia with all necessary materials within a reasonable amount of time from TinglyMedia’s request. These include, but are not limited to photos, interview schedules, etc. CLIENT understands that any delay on CLIENT’s part to deliver needed materials for the creative asset(s), or to schedule time to record interview sessions, may affect the final delivery date.
After purchase, CLIENT has 60 days to ship us your product and fill out a questionnaire. It is not TinglyMedia’s responsibility to remind CLIENT to complete questionnaires or ship product. Questionnaire must be FULLY completed; if exited half way through, your creative asset(s) will not be fulfilled. It is CLIENT responsibility to e-mail info@TinglyMedia.com to inquire about project details if questionnaire is completed + product is shipped. CLIENTs must ship product with their name on it that matches the questionnaire filled out.
After 60 days and the CLIENT has not shipped product, the amount paid for the package will be credited to the CLIENT’s account. If prices have increased since purchase, the CLIENT will be responsible for the paying the remaining difference for the creative asset(s) package.
Any specific CLIENT requests may delay delivery of creative asset(s). These include but are not limited to specific actor demographics, specific actor requests, script approval before production, specific scene requests, off-location sets, etc.
It is the responsibility of the Purchaser to have all content of scripts, images, and videos to be used in the constructed creative asset(s) and/or website to be approved prior to completion.
Here at TinglyMedia we value your satisfaction and strive to provide the best CLIENT experience.
In order to maintain and preserve the quality of our service, we offer 1-3 Basic revisions to your creative asset(s) within 14 days post-delivery of your assets.
Please include as much information as possible in each creative asset(s) revision request to keep your revisions to a minimum due to the lengthy process of revisions. Understand that every additional round of revisions will be extending the deadline of your project.
If revisions are required at the fault of TinglyMedia – we will revise the creative asset(s) at no additional cost. If CLIENT is requesting revisions that are not articulated on the questionnaire or via communication – additional charges may apply.
