Terms and conditions

Proposals

Miriam Cunliffe Photography provides fee estimates and proposals at no cost, which may include guidance on the approach businesses take and suggested media for a project.

I cannot accept liability for any action businesses take, or do not take, as a result of acting on my advice. 

Payment 

A deposit will be agreed between the client (you) and myself. Before starting work on your project, I need a purchase order from you. This can be a formal document, project code, or an email confirming the project brief and the fee. 

I send an invoice for the remaining balance upon completion. Payment is on strict 30-day terms. 

If I don't receive a response from you within 7 days of submission of the work, the project is considered complete and an invoice issued.

Changes

If you wish to change or add to the scope of the agreed brief after the project begins, additional fees may apply.

 

Late payment 

In the event of late payment, an additional interest fee may be charged in line with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.

 

Additionally, you will be required to pay any recovery costs I incur while chasing your payment. 

Cancellation

If you cancel the project part-way through and before submission, I charge 50% of the agreed fee. Once I have submitted the images the full fee will apply.

 

Copyright/ownership of copyright

Ownership and copyright of content remains with Miriam Cunliffe Photography until full payment when it passes to you. I will pursue my intellectual rights to ownership of content if used before full payment.

 

Errors and omissions 

I will make every effort to avoid errors, in producing photography for you. Please make sure you look over the images if they involve a logo or text, to make sure everything is correct, before publishing. 

 

However, the final responsibility for published materials remains with you.

 

I cannot accept responsibility or liability of any kind for any loss or damage, whether material, financial, commercial or reputational, that you incur as a result of your choosing to publish materials that I have worked on.

 

Fair dealing 

Unless we agree otherwise, by working with me you grant permission for me to:

  • Refer to you as a client on my website, social media, in marketing literature and elsewhere

  • Describe the work I have done for you

  • Display the work I have done for you

 

Timescales 

If proposals contain dates and schedule guidelines, please be aware that if you miss calls or meeting with me, are late with a payment, or fail to supply requested information by agreed dates, it may not be possible to stick to the planned schedule for the project.

I cannot be responsible for deadlines missed due to circumstances completely beyond my control. 

Please note that missing agreed dates may result in additional delays to a project. Workflow, the availability of third parties, weekends and holidays can all impact on timings.
