If a Client accepts a quote, then the Client will be deemed to have satisfied themselves as to the terms applying and have accepted these terms and conditions in full. Please read these terms and conditions carefully. Any purchase or use of our services implies that you have read and accepted these Terms and Conditions.

2. Charges

Charges for services to be provided by CADumais are defined in the project quotation that the Client receives via e-mail. Quotations are valid for a period of 30 days. CADumais reserves the right to alter or decline to provide a quotation after the expiry of the 30 days. Payment for services via bank transfer only. Bank details will be made available on invoices.

3. Client Review

CADumais will provide the Client with an opportunity to review the proofread/edited content upon completion. At the completion of the work, such materials will be deemed to be accepted and approved unless the Client notifies CADumais otherwise within ten (10) days of the date the work was made available to the Client.

4. Turnaround Time and Content Control

CADumais will complete the Client’s submitted work by the date initially agreed on, or at the date agreed upon with the Client upon CADumais receiving the initial work unless a delay is specifically requested by the Client and agreed upon by CADumais. In return, the Client agrees to delegate a single individual as a primary contact to aid CADumais with progressing the work in a satisfactory and expedient manner. 

5. Failure to provide required material

CADumais is a small business, to remain efficient we must ensure that the work we have is carried out at the scheduled time. On occasions, we may have to reject offers for other work and inquiries to ensure that your work is completed at the time arranged. This is why we ask that you provide all the required material in advance. On any occasion where progress cannot be made with your work because we have not been given the required material in the agreed time frame, and we are delayed as result, we reserve the right to impose a surcharge of up to 25%. 

6. Payment

Invoices will be provided by CADumais upon completion. Invoices are normally sent via email. Accounts that remain unpaid thirty (30) days after the date of the invoice will be assessed a service charge of twenty percent (20%) of the total amount due.

7. Additional Expenses

For exceptional cases, the Client agrees to reimburse CADumais for any additional expenses necessary for the completion of the work.  

8. Termination

Termination of services by the Client must be requested in a written notice and will be effective on receipt of such notice. E-mail or telephone requests for termination of services will not be honored until and unless confirmed in writing. The Client will be invoiced for proofreading and/or editing work completed to the date of the first notice of cancellation for payment in full within thirty (30) days.
