The client agrees to Jack Harris Design & Print’s definition of acceptable means of supplying data to the company.

Text is to be supplied to all image formats accepted in electronic format as standard text (.txt), MS Word (.doc) on CD-ROM, or via e-mail.
15. PRINT DATA AND OBLIGATIONS TO CHECK IT
We will carry out all print orders solely on the basis of the print data sent by you. Error-free printing is not guaranteed in the case of differing data formats or other specifications.
You must carefully check the print data to determine whether it is suitable for the order before sending it to us. We will not check the print data and the customer alone will bear the risk of any errors in the printed Products owing to incorrect data supplied.
At your express request, formats other than those specified in the customer information will be processed, where technically feasible. If errors occur as a result of using these formats, responsibility will be borne by the customer and not by Jack Harris Design & Print.
We can convert print data not sent in CMYK mode, but such conversion will be at the customer’s risk. Conversion of RGB data or ICC colour profiles will naturally result in deviations in colour from the original and, again, liability for these deviations will lie solely with the customer.
16. Supplied Images
Images which are supplied in an electronic format, are to be provided in a format as prescribed by Jack Harris Design via a CD-ROM, or e-mail. Images must be of a quality suitable for use without any subsequent image processing, and Jack Harris Design will not be held responsible for any image quality which the client later deems to be unacceptable.

18. Design Project Duration
Any indication given by Jack Harris Design of a design project's duration is to be considered by the customer to be an estimation. Jack Harris Design cannot be held responsible for any project over-runs, whatever the cause. Estimated project duration should be deemed to be from the date that cleared funds are received by Jack Harris Design for the initial deposit payment or by date confirmed in writing by Jack Harris Design.
19. Design Project Completion
Jack Harris Design considers the design project complete upon receipt of the customer's artwork signoff form. Jack Harris Design will consider that the client has accepted the original draft, if no notification of changes is received in writing from the customer within 14 days of the start of the review period.
If a client has not responded by accepting the artwork sign-off form within 21 days of the artwork proof being sent for approval, the full design charge will be due immediately.

21. Domain Registration
Jack Harris Design cannot guarantee the availability of any domain name. Where Jack Harris Design is to register a domain name on behalf of a client, it will endeavour to do so but the client should not assume a successful registration.

Slight deviations in colour will not be regarded as defects.
27. Damaged goods
If part of the delivery has defects, this will not authorize the customer to object to the entire goods.
If the supplied goods are entirely defective or lack warranted qualities, Jack Harris Design- at its discretion - will supply a replacement or remedy the goods, to the exclusion of further warranty claims by the customer.
For this we need to see a high quality photograph of the defect.
Cancellation of orders may be made initially by telephone contact, or e-mail, however, following this, Jack Harris Design will need formal notification in writing to the company's postal address. The client will then be invoiced for all work completed over and above the non-refundable deposit that may have been made at the time of first ordering. In the case of a cancellation when no deposit was taken, the client will still be invoiced for all work completed so far. The balance of monies due must be paid within 30 days. Please note: any cancellation which is not formally confirmed in writing and received by Jack Harris Design within 14 days of such instruction being issued, will be liable for the full quoted cost of the project.
However, you will not have any right to cancel a contract for the supply of any of the products because the cancellation rights do not apply to the sale of custom-made articles or goods made to a consumer’s specification.
Jack Harris Design makes no warranties of any kind, express or implied, for any and all products and/or services that it supplies.
