Terms & Conditions


Logo Design

SECTION 1 | Our Obligations

The Service provides individuals or entities that have signed up (each, a “Client”) the option to use a system to post specific assignments and project descriptions (each, a “Project”), including illustrative samples or other media (each, a "Creative Brief"), revise those Creative Briefs (each, a "Revision Brief") directly or indirectly with 3Blocks Design and obtain responses (each, a "Response") to those Creative or Revision Briefs from design experts retained by 3Blocks Design ("Members"). 3Blocks Design will provide you, as the Client, the Service according to the product purchased. Your Responses will be created iteratively through a drafting cycle of Creative Briefs, Revision Briefs and Responses, ultimately resulting in a final Response conforming to your various Creative and Revision Briefs. “Client Survey” means all the information we need to assess and interpret the needs and expectations of your project. 

As outlined on the individual product purchasing pages of our website, you will receive the products, services, and details described (“Scope of Work”). A “Concept” means a unique idea or artwork presentation specific to an individual project.  A “Round of Revisions” means a one-time, consolidated list of requested changes submitted to us by you. All changes requested outside of this Round will be subject to additional charges.

You agree to deliver the Client Survey following the date you sign up for the Services (“Survey Delivery Period”). At the time that your Client Survey has been submitted, your project timeline will start. Until which time that your Client Survey is received, the project will remain halted and all work will cease until which time the Client Survey has been provided to us by you.

3Blocks Design reserves the right to refuse Service or remove content if any project, which in our sole and absolute opinion, is deemed illegal, misleading, or obscene, or is otherwise in breach of our Terms of Use or Acceptable Use Policy. 3Blocks Design does not have a duty and does not generally screen or edit projects, but we reserve the right to monitor or to remove, without notice, any project which, in our sole discretion or upon order of a court or regulatory agency, are in breach of our Terms of Use or Acceptable Use Policy.

3Blocks Design does not guarantee that your logo will not have similarities to logos designed by us for our other customers. Apart from your logo as a whole, you obtain no right or claim of any kind to any individual design element or elements of the logo and we reserve the right to use one or more of the design elements in other logo design projects for other customers.

You will own the final product but will not own any materials, media or other content generated during any revision cycles leading up to the final product and we expressly reserve all right, title and interest in and to the same. You acknowledge and hereby grant us a royalty-free, irrevocable, exclusive, worldwide right to use creative and revision briefs, individual responses provided to you, and the final product for internal and archival purposes and to display and promote our logo design Services.

SECTION 2 | Your Obligations

You are solely responsible for preparing and submitting detailed descriptions of each of your Creative Briefs to 3Blocks Design, including providing samples illustrating your Creative Brief and any relevant deadlines. 3Blocks Design is under no obligation to review a Creative or Revision Brief for any purpose, including accuracy, completeness of information, quality or clarity. 3Blocks Design may decide, in its sole discretion, to deny a Creative or Revision Brief.

When 3Blocks Design provides you with a Response, you are responsible for reviewing the Response. If you fail to promptly inform 3Blocks Design that the Response is not reasonably responsive to the related Creative Brief, you will be deemed to have accepted the Response. If you notify 3Blocks Design that you think a Response is not reasonably responsive to the related Creative Brief, you shall then submit to 3Blocks Design a Revision Brief containing information regarding amendments or modification to be made to the initial Response. After you provide 3Blocks Design with a Revision Brief, 3Blocks Design will provide you with a subsequent Response that conforms to the additional criteria you requested. 3Blocks Design is not responsible for the content of Responses developed to the extent that such Responses are prepared to conform to your Creative or Revision Briefs.

Revision cycles generally consist of three (3) additional compositions that incorporate changes you request in a Revision Brief. The purpose of the revision process is to create Responses that move your project forward in the specific direction you have determined. You may request significant changes in the first and second cycles, and the Responses generated might be quite different in nature from the original composition you selected. By the third revision request, your requests shall be modifications of the current composition only. Revision requests that depart from the then-current composition will be honored and completed in a timely manner, however; 3Blocks Design reserves the right to charge additional fees for each such Revision. No revision work, which requires payment, will be started without your authorization.

You agree to provide timely responses to any status notifications that 3Blocks Design sends to you. 3Blocks Design reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate your access to all or a portion of the Service, at any time, with or without notice.

3Blocks Design is only providing logo design services and has no obligation or duty of any kind to provide any legal advice or other service to you regarding the logo or to perform any trademark clearance search or any other inquiry of any kind related to the logo. It is solely your responsibility to determine if the logo is suitable and appropriate for your use and to obtain the advice of an attorney or other suitable professional regarding whether or not the logo is legally available for your use and infringes the rights of any third party.

SECTION 3 | Termination

Customer may cancel their service at any time; however, you shall forfeit the right to any refund, in whole or in part, as outlined above. Refunds are only available to the actual Client for whom the logo was created. No refund is available for design firms or for those who order our design services on behalf of another entity.

In the event of termination, 3Blocks Design will determine, in its sole discretion, whether you are entitled to any refund. Should you receive a refund, you will be refunded the total amount paid less applicable termination and service fees. You agree that your acceptance of the refund shall constitute your sole and exclusive remedy with respect to related Responses. Additionally, you acknowledge that you will have no right (express or implied) to use any Response or other work product, content, or media, nor will you have any ownership interest in or to the same.
