(a) Proposal. In order to undertake a Project, an Artist must first submit a Work through a Proposal and clearly specify the requirements as indicated on through the Proposal process such that Contractors clearly know the Artist’s criteria on which the Artist will judge the Submission. A Project consists of three phases. The first phase is the “Feedback Phase". The second phase is the “Sketch Phase.” The third phase is the “Final Production Phase.” In the Feedback Phase, the Artist may obtain written requests from producers to collaborate. An Artist has the option to select a Selected Contractor immediately after the Feedback Phase or to select the top three Contractors and move to the Sketch Phase before selecting a single Selected Contractor. The Final Producer Phase begins when Artist selects a Selected Contractor to work with. The Artist then works one-on-one with the Selected Contractor to create a Final Deliverable, which will be delivered at the end of the Final Production Phase. After the Artist approves the Final Deliverable, the Selected Contractor will receives the Contractor Fee.
(b) Refunds and Project Phases. There are three phases (also called steps) in every project. The first phase Artist Payment is $100. This phase one Artist payment is always non-refundable. There is an additional Artist Payment of $500 that the Artist shall pay ONLY when and if they choose to enter the second phase. It is not required that the Artist enter the second phase. If the Artist does choose to enter the second Phase and in the second phase the artist is not happy with the sketches they have received, and ItyDity cannot remedy the issue, Artist may request a partial refund of the phase two Artist Payment for the amount of $425 (US Dollars). This is in accordance to our money-back guarantee. If the Artist proceeds into the third phase of a Project, they will first need to pay the phase 3 Artist Payment which is the amount listed as the Selected Producer Fee minus the $500 they put down towards production in Phase two. This is also the amount they will be invoiced by ItyDity at that time. After Artist Payment is paid for phase 3 the total Artist Payment of phase two and phase three is non-refundable.
(c) Revision limits. Artist may ask for up to 5 rounds of revisions from their Selected Contractor in Phase 3 of a Project. If more revisions are needed they will need to pay their selected contractor $40/per hour for additional revisions. Payment for additional revisions will be billed after revisions have been made but must be made by the Artist before they receive their final Deliverables.
(d) Production Assistant. Artist receives up to 2 hours of support from a dedicated Production Assistant at ItyDity in Phase 1 & 2. Artist received up to 2 hours more of support from a dedicated Production Assistant at ItyDity in Phase 3. Production Assistants can help Artist decide between Submissions, ask for revisions, communicate with Producers, and resolve issues. Support from Production Assistance can be via email, phone, or Zoom call. If Artist needs additional support beyond the 2 hour limit in Phase 1 & 2 and/or beyond the 2 hour limit in Phase 3, they will need to purchase the Unlimited Production Assistant Support package.
1.3 PROJECT SERVICE
(a) Artists and Contractors can also work with each other through the Site or Services 1-on-1 by creating a Project Service and following the directions on the Site. Contractor can create invoices to request payments from Artist related to the Project Service. Artist can pay invoices and reserve the right to accept Submissions before they are considered “Accepted.” If Artist has not Accepted a Submission(s), Artist may request a refund of the Artist Payment, at any time up to sixty (60) calendar days after the date of invoice, or ten (10) calendar days after delivery of the subject Submission, whichever is sooner. After Contractor has delivered the Submission, Artist will be deemed to have Accepted the designs unless Artist provides notice of rejection to ItyDity and Contractor within ten (10) calendar days of delivery of the Submission. If Contractor does not cure the issues in the notice of rejection within thirty (30) days of the pertinent rejection notice, Artist will be refunded the Contractor Fee and Artist will have no right to use the resulting Submission in any way. ItyDity reserves the right in its sole discretion to restrict Artist and Contractors from creating Submissions or Final Deliverables using a Project Service and to remove Submissions. ItyDity has no involvement in managing or providing the Submissions to Artist and is simply providing the ability for Contractor to store files for, work with, invoice and receive payments from Artists, and for Artists to request services from, view Submissions, provide feedback on Submissions and pay Contractors, using Project Services.
