You acknowledge and agree that Okta Web Designs reserves the right (but not the obligation) to pre-screen, refuse, or remove any project and/or user-provided content that violates these Terms and Conditions or is otherwise objectionable, including, without limitation, projects or content that is illegal, obscene, indecent, defamatory, incites religious, racial, or ethnic hatred, or violates the rights of others. Any activity brought to our attention that looks to us to be a violation of the law will be reported to the appropriate authorities.
You acknowledge, consent, and agree that Okta Web Designs may access, preserve, and disclose your account information and content if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such access, preservation, or disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with legal process; (b) enforce these Terms and Conditions; (c) respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third-parties; (d) respond to your customer service requests; or (e) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Okta Web Designs, its users and the public.
Okta Web Designsmaintains the right, without notice, to alter, amend, update, and replace these Terms and Conditions at any moment. You are responsible for reviewing these Terms and Conditions on a regular basis. You understand and agree that Okta Web Designs will not be responsible to you or any other party if these Terms and Conditions are modified, amended, suspended, discontinued, or otherwise changed.
(a) The Okta Web Designs Service is an online offering through which individuals or entities that have signed up as clients with Okta Web Designs (each, a "Client") can post specific assignments and project descriptions, including illustrative samples or other media (each, a "Creative Brief"), revise those Creative Briefs (each, a "Revision Brief"), and obtain responses (each, a "Response") to those Creative or Revision Briefs from design ("Members"). Okta Web Designs will supply you, the Client, with the Service based on the Package you have selected. Your Responses will be developed iteratively through a drafting cycle of Creative Briefs, Revision Briefs, and Responses, culminating in a final Response that adheres to your different Creative and Revision Briefs.
(b) You are exclusively responsible for writing and submitting thorough descriptions of each of your Creative Briefs on the Web Site, including providing examples of your Creative Brief and any relevant deadlines. A term sheet (a "Term Sheet") will be prepared for each Response to a Creative Brief that you want to receive, containing and subject to the terms and conditions you have defined for the Creative or Revision Brief. Okta Web Designs has no responsibility for reviewing a Creative or Revision Brief or Term Sheet for any reason, including correctness, completeness of information, quality, or clarity. Okta Web Design reserves the right to refuse a Creative or Revision Brief or Term Sheet at its sole discretion.
(c) When Okta Web Designs sends you a response, you are responsible for examining it. You shall be presumed to have accepted the Response if you do not quickly notify Okta Web Designs that it is not reasonably responsive to the relevant Term Sheet or Creative Brief. If you tell Okta Web Designs that you believe a response is not fairly responsive to the relevant Creative Brief, you must subsequently submit to the Web Site a Revision Brief providing information on amendments or changes to the first Response. After you supply Okta Web Designs with a Revision Brief, Okta Web Designs will send you a response that meets the extra criteria you specified. Okta Web Designs is not responsible for the content of Responses made to correspond to your Creative or Revision Briefs.
(d) Cycles of Revision typically include 2-6 additional compositions that include the modifications requested in the Revision Brief. The goal of the revision process is to generate Responses that advance your project ahead in the direction you've chosen. You may request major adjustments in the first and second cycles, and the responses generated may differ significantly from the initial composition you choose. Your requests for the third revision should only be adjustments to the present composition.

3. Policy on Refunds, Cancellations, and Taxes
In any case, any funds deposited for a project are not refundable after delivery if the initial design concepts are approved or a change is requested unless Okta Web Design cancels or terminates your Contract for a reason other than your breach or non-performance.
If you make a request when the initial logo designs are presented, Okta Web Design will refund your money. However, once you approve or request changes to the initial designs, the refund offer is null and void, and no refund requests will be considered. The refund policy for multiple / combination packages will be the same as it is for single products. For example, if you buy a logo and web design service and accept the logo, you can request a refund for the website service only during the first design phase. A minimum Administration Fee applies to all returns. A good cause for requesting a refund must be validated against the design brief and client input for updates. A refund will not be issued until an idea is not developed according to the brief; nonetheless, additional changes will be supplied until perfect satisfaction is achieved. The money-back promise is contingent on the order being placed in good faith. We do not consider it good faith when a customer places design orders with more than one design firm for the same task with the objective of claiming a refund. We reserve the right to refuse a refund request in such a circumstance. Almost all design tasks require client feedback before finishing the design, thus it is only reasonable that the customer participates and offers feedback if the intended outcomes are to be obtained. If our designed logo is determined to be significantly similar to another logo design that may already exist, you are entitled to a re-draw. Any resemblance to an existing design is purely coincidental, and Okta Web Design will assume no liability or compensation claim in such a circumstance. It is the client's obligation to obtain a copyright for their artwork.
An order can be canceled 24 hours before the delivery date for a fee of 15% of the invoice amount. If you cancel your purchase within 24 hours of the delivery date, you will be charged 25% of the invoice amount as a cancellation fee. Cancellation requests can be sent through email to Okta Web Designs.
If a consumer does not respond within 60 days of our notification, their account will be considered closed. An admin fee of $100 will be charged to reactivate an account.
Our bank merchant services process Visa, Mastercard, and American Express payments. To ensure optimum security and compliance, Okta Web Design does not save customer card information on its systems. Card information is maintained with merchant services for future payments when recurring billing is necessary. We also accept personal/business checks and bank transfers. PayPal handles PayPal and Discover Card payments.
All prices on this website are exclusive of any and all applicable taxes.
4. Important Information
How do I know whether I'm eligible for a refund?
If you receive your first design thoughts for your design package and they do not match your brief, you may request a refund. See the table below to see how these activities influence your eligibility for a refund:
|Money Back Status
|None of the early examples correspond in any way to the customer brief.
|Within 24 hours following the original delivery, the customer may request a refund.
|When a customer requests modifications and provides feedback
|The Money Back Guarantee is no longer valid. The 100% Satisfaction Guarantee is now in effect.
|Take no action for the next 60 days.
|Money-back guarantee offer becomes null and void, however, Okta Web Design will examine and uphold the offer at its discretion.
How long does it take to receive a refund?
It may take up to 21 business days to get your refund. Our return policy is specified in our terms and conditions.
Is the money-back guarantee available for all packages?
Money Back Guarantee applies to design packages alone. When you approve a design and request more adjustments, the Money Back Guarantee becomes null and invalid. However, you are still eligible for our 100% satisfaction guarantee, which means that we will continue to work on your design until you are completely happy.
Why do we provide a Money Back Guarantee?
We are so confident in our abilities and design quality that we provide a Money Back Guarantee if we fail to meet expectations. We give the Money Back Guarantee in good faith and want our clients to do the same. In most situations, customers are quite honest, and cooperative, and offer great feedback in order to obtain the designs they like. However, a small minority attempts to take undue advantage of this flexibility which is unethical, immoral, and exploitative of human abilities.
Work in design is very subjective. It is unlikely that the designs will be perfect on the first try unless the consumer offers quality input. Okta Web Design is a bespoke design firm that values customer feedback and engagement in the design process. Initial samples, in our experience, are rarely chosen as the final logo; instead, they are utilized to bounce ideas off. We notice specifics about the customer's likes and dislikes from the feedback supplied on these examples and then make updates that are closer to the specifications. Customers are protected by our Money Back Guarantee if we fail to deliver on their expectations.
The Money Back Guarantee does not apply to the following items:
- Content Writing
- Search Engine Optimization Services
- Marketing Assistance Services
- Telephone Services
Money Back Guarantee does not apply to design companies, design studios, or those working on projects for their clients.
Note: Customers requesting a refund will not be permitted to use the original design concepts supplied to them. All design copyrights remain the property of Okta Web Design until fully paid.
