Terms & Conditions

As boring as T&C’s can seem, they are vital for any good relationship between a client and their designer. Here in my Terms and Conditions, you will see the process broken down and how I conduct business.


Braindity is also referred to as “Uniek Studio” and “Julie Sara” is an Individual Business registered with the Enterprise Number 0801.682.729 (the “Enterprise”)

Service: the provision of Digital Services and Products (the “Service”)

Website: www.uniek-studio.com (the “Website”)


These terms and conditions (the “Terms and Conditions”) apply to the agreement (the “Agreement”) entered into between the Enterprise and the customer (the “Customer”) and through which the Enterprise provides the Customer with the Service. The Enterprise and the Customer are individually referred to as a “party” and collectively as the “parties” to the Agreement.

All publicly displayed pricing and features of the Service (e.g. online or on informative brochures) are provided for information purposes only. Only the pricing and features included in the offer communicated to the Customer may be binding to the Enterprise.

The Customer accepts the offer for the Service, as the case may be, by accepting in writing or by sending back a signed purchase order issued by the Enterprise or by confirming in writing to the Enterprise (including by email or through a web shop interface) that the Customer subscribes to the offer for the Service.

By accepting the offer, the Agreement enters into force, the Customer consents to the application of the Terms and Conditions and waives the application of any conflicting provisions of any purchaser terms and conditions or any other document emanating from the Customer which, in the absence of this article, would conflict with the Terms and Conditions. However, the provisions that would be applicable by virtue of mandatory legal rules to which the Customer is subject (such as, for example, public procurement rules) prevail over the provisions of the Terms and Conditions.


The Enterprise undertakes to use its best efforts corresponding at least to what the Customer is entitled to expect from a professional in the field to provide the Service with quality and speed.

Intellectual Property

The Customer acknowledges that all elements made available by the Enterprise to the Customer (e.g. texts, images, photos, logos, databases, [the functionalities and interface of the Website], etc.) may be protected by one or more intellectual property rights (including copyright, trademark rights and rights related to the production of databases) of which the Enterprise is the holder. The Customer must refrain from using or reproducing these elements and deleting or adapting any references to associated intellectual property rights.

Alterations, Revisions and Supply of Content

Unless otherwise negotiated or Braindity copywriting services are used, the client must supply text for their project in text file format at the start of the project as well as graphics (logos, images, etc.) to be used. Text should be as close as reasonably possible to final format, with accuracy of content, spelling and grammar checked and little or no formatting (includes text from previous websites).

Images should be supplied in the highest resolution electronic format possible, i.e. logos/images in original Illustrator / Photoshop format, or hi-res PNG or JPEG files (300 dpi). Braindity assumes that all correct permissions have been sought and/or royalties paid for images used. Unless otherwise quoted or negotiated, all projects (excluding website design) include three rounds of minor changes or author’s revisions of the chosen project only. Following three revisions per project, an additional hourly fee will be charged. We will advise you and seek your agreement before proceeding with any work that will incur additional charges. Designs and Artwork need to be proofed and checked upon receipt. Braindity cannot be held liable for lack of checking and approving by the client should the design go to print and it is not correct. There are a limited amount of revisions per design, the client is to ensure proper checking of designs and communication to Braindity regarding fixes and changes.

This applies to once off and Retainer Contracts. Retainer Contracts do not exempt designs from this rule. Each design / artwork is still considered to be approved and signed off after the initial revision. Constant revisions to completed artwork does not form part of the retainer fees and will be billed accordingly. registration, design and maintenance.

Braindity will make one major set of changes in the review period. The review period is 1 week after the submission of the website review notice to the client. It is the duty of the client to ensure a comprehensive and timely review is made of the site, and that all changes are noted regarding the entire website and pages in the initial review.
