You agree that we may change these terms and conditions, at any time, by giving you notice of the new terms. Your continued use of our services is your consent to such modifications. You represent to us that you are authorized to enter into this Agreement on behalf of any organization you work for.

1. Invoicing and Scheduling

Your invoice from us will detail the branding, logo, and/or design service/s that we will provide for you. Once we have received the agreed upon payment, we will review your project and provide you with a logo development schedule.

  • 2.1 Updated Contact and Billing Information. You agree to provide us with updated and correct email and mailing addresses, phone numbers and credit card information.
  • 2.2 Cooperation and Timeliness. The development of your logo is a cooperative process between Elevate5 and you. We will require certain information, or approvals from you, on a going forward basis. If we do not receive the information as requested, or the approvals as required, Elevate5 may not be able to complete the project on time, or as agreed.
