Upon a contract of work being agreed, the following terms will apply:
– For the purposes of this document, the phrase “the Supplier” will refer to Pete Nottage. Similarly, the expression “the Client” will refer to the entity purchasing either voiceover or presenting services from Pete Nottage. Unless agreed in writing prior to commencement of work, the Supplier will work under these conditions only. Written instructions from the Client to proceed will be taken by the Supplier as an implicit acceptance of these terms. Any breach in these terms may result in the supply of future services being withdrawn.
– Fees for voiceover services are based on many calculating factors, including the length of the project and the intended usage. It is therefore the responsibility of the Client to research this information prior to the recording of the script. Any additional usage beyond the scope of this initial agreement must be disclosed by the Client to the Supplier at the point of intended further use. The Supplier reserves the right to vary the service price to take account of any changes in usage or size of project requested by the Client which were not disclosed at the time of booking.
– Standard usage agreements for UK radio commercials are for twelve (12) months and are arranged on a per voice, per script, per radio station basis, unless otherwise indicated. Audio requested by the Client for demonstration-only purposes remains the property of the Supplier and should be used solely for evaluation purposes. It is not to be used for any other purpose without the prior written consent of the Supplier.
– Voiceover services intended for use in UK television commercials will be charged based on the number of Television Ratings (TVR’s) purchased for the specified campaign. If TVR’s are not forthcoming, the Supplier will provide a quote based on 400 TVRs and it will be the responsibility of the Client to inform the Supplier if and when the figure has been exceeded. If the campaign subsequently fails to hit the estimated number of TVRs, no refund will be offered.
– In the event that the Client cancels any booked session either with less than twenty-four (24) hours notice, or after the Supplier has delivered a fully-recorded script, the Supplier reserves the right to charge a cancellation fee of 100% of the fees payable under the terms of the booking.
– It is imperative the Client checks any scripts or similar documentation for errors or omissions in advance of sending to the Supplier. Additionally, it is the Client’s responsibility to inform the Supplier regarding the correct pronunciation of unusual or difficult words. If the Supplier sees such a word, he will attempt to find the correct pronunciation but success will not be guaranteed. Re-recording such words after the fact will incur an additional 50% charge on top of the agreed price. Any accidental mispronunciation by the Supplier will incur no charge.
– Audio files, unless otherwise requested, will be delivered to the Client in WAVE format, via a secure link to an online server. Unless agreed between the Supplier and the Client, all audio will remain on this server for one calendar year from the day of recording.
– The Client warrants and undertakes that:
(a) they will be responsible for obtaining and paying for all necessary licenses and consents for the use of any copyright material contained in, or the inclusion of any person or persons in their production, and;
(b) they will indemnify and keep the Supplier indemnified against all actions, proceedings, costs, damages, expenses, penalties, claims, demands and liabilities arising from any breach of the above warranties or in any manner whatsoever in consequence of the use of any copy or matter supplied by the Client.
– Unless otherwise specified by the Supplier in writing, payment is due within thirty (30) days of the date of invoice. Acceptable payment methods are direct bank transfer or Paypal. If paying by Paypal, the Supplier reserves the right to charge an additional handling fee. In the case of a new client, or client operating outside of the United Kingdom, a 50% fee may be requested in advance. This decision is at the discretion of the Supplier.
– In accordance with the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998, as amended and supplemented by the Late Payment of Commercial Debts Regulations 2002 (EC Directive), the right is reserved to charge interest at 8% above the late payment period reference interest rate based on the relevant Bank of England base rate on all amounts outstanding for more than 30 days from the date indicated on the invoice; and further to make a statutory compensatory charge on late payments, as follows: for amounts below £1,000 a charge of £40; for amounts between £1,000 and £10,000 a charge of £70; and for amounts above £10,000 a charge of £100. Such charges may be applied and added to the debt. Details of these charges can be found at the DTI’s website: www.payontime.co.uk.
