Terms of service
This is a summary of the original terms of service, translated to English for your convenience. Please consider that this an auxiliary version of the original terms of service, and the Spanish version is the one to be officially followed during the commercial relation with Licos (or Licographics), and for any of the products or services requested. To read the original and official terms of service (in Spanish) please go here.
When requesting a product
The following terms are effective as of the date any person (the “customer”) requests any of the items (“products”) listed in this website, be it a custom illustration (“commission”) or in the site’s store; or any other product created by Licos (“Licographics”) listed third party platforms. Therefore, we work under the assumption that the customer has fully read and comprehend the Terms of Service.
The customer accepts and must pay at least 50 % of the final price of their products before any progress is made; and pay the remaining amount before the products are finished. Any interactions and information provided between Licographics and the customer are classified; and will be used only during the development of the customer’s products. Any contact information belonging to the customer could be used to send special offers and other newsletters only if the owner of this contact information approves the use of this information for this purpose.
The customer and Licographics must use an electronic and written medium to interact. E-mail is highly recommended. These interactions include (but are not limited to) request a quote, a product and/or any other actions related to the development of the customer’s product. The customer can find a catalogue of available products here.
Licographics works on a monthly schedule, taking new orders through Google forms, which are accepted at Licographics’ own discretion.
The amount of orders accepted every month varies. Sending order requests in the aforementioned form does not guarantee it will be accepted. Licographics reserves the right to take or reject any orders for any reason.
When requesting a product, the customer will receive a quote for it in the following 48 business hours. This quote is only valid for 2 (two) weeks. If the customer wishes to accept this quote, the customer must send the payment in the following 72 business hours after receiving said quote; otherwise it will be considered as abandoned and Licographics has no responsibility to work on the requested product.
Once the production has started, Licographics will inform to the customer the due date for their product(s) and revision stages. During these revisions, the customer may request modifications, up to 3 (three) times per stage, as long as these changes are not part of a different development stage. Any additional change is subject to additional fees. The customer can find any progress about their product and its corresponding stages on Trello.
Licographics must comply with these modifications, establishing a new due date, if necessary. In case the customer needs additional revisions, or their modifications belong to any previously finished stage, Licographics will charge the customer for any applicable fees.
If the customer wishes to add or remove any of the stages of their product (i.e. coloring, shading, background, etc.), they can a) for addition, request them and pay for any additional fees according to the new characteristics of their product; or b) for removal, notify Licographics which characteristics they would like to remove from their product before the development of these stages start. If the development has started (or was finished) already, the customer will not be refunded. Refunds will be done only if these development stages were not started at all. The relative price for refunds is calculated as follows (based on the final price):
- For basic illustrations: sketch 10 %, outlines 20 % y colouring 70 %. Character references are considered basic illustrations.
- For pro illustrations: sketch 10%, outlines 20 %, colouring 35 % and lights and shadows 35 %.
- For premium illustrations: sketch 10 %, outlines 20 %, colouring 20 %, lights and shadows 25 % and background 25 %.
Once all production stages have been finished and there are no further modifications to be done, the product will be considered as finished.
Modifications can be done to a finished product. These, although, are subject to Licographics’ availability and the customer must pay for any applicable fees.
The product will be delivered via direct download from an online storage service. Licographics will send a link to the product via e-mail, which will be available for one month, starting the day of the product’s completion. The receiving e-mail address will be the same e-mail address used to send the payment via Paypal.
Formats for a finished product are listed in separate sections below. If the customer needs an additional format, they must inform Licographics with the characteristics of this new format. Charges may apply depending on the requested format.
Licographics will set a due date for the finished product before starting any development. In case Licographics is unable to finish the product on that day, is mandatory for Licographics to set a new due date, up to two times. If Licographics was unable to finish the product in the third (and last) due date, the customer will receive a refund corresponding to the development that has not been done and Licographics will set a new (and last) due date, and set top priority to that product. Additionally, the customer will receive an additional benefit for the next purchase, that can be negotiated with the customer.
Payment and cancellations
The only valid payment methods for international customers is via Paypal and in US Dollars (USD). For customers located in Mexico (United Mexican States), please read the terms in Spanish, following this link.
The customer may request a cancellation of their product at any production stage. To do this, they must notify the customer. Refunds will be done corresponding to the development stages that were not started as listed in the section above.
Licographics reserves the right to cancel any of the orders. This action does not guarantee refunds to the customer. Cancellation could be due to (but not limited to) these cases:
- Customer’s long response time in any contact (up to 7 days).
- Aggressive behavior, direct or indirect, against Licographics, members of groups in any platform, affiliates, subscribers, etc.
- The customer does not comply with any of their obligations in these terms.
- Anything that can be considered inappropriate. The reason will be mentioned to the customer.
- Any other action that affects, directly or indirectly, the service to other customers or affects Licographics
The customer may use their product in prints or any digital media without restrictions. Credits must not be removed from the image and/or they should be clearly visible in the description of the image. Although, creation of non-fungible tokens (or NFT) is strictly prohibited. Personal use of images for artificial intelligence software is allowed, only for pieces the customer got for themselves and does not require authorization from Licographics. Use of any products in artificial intelligence software made for a third party or for commercial uses is strictly forbidden.
The customer grants the rights to use their characters to Licographics exclusively for the creation of the requested product. Additionally, the customer confirms the rights from others’ characters were granted to them for use in their product. In case the rights of any third party characters are involved without permission, Licographics will not be responsible of the incorrect use of unauthorized property, being the customer the only responsible of this action.
Licographics is the only owner of the moral and economic rights of the product (unless otherwise is stated). Any character or element included in the product belonging originally to the customer or a third party is still property of their respective owners.
Licographics may use the product in printed or digital media, either commercial or not, without restrictions and is not obligated to notify the customer, or to give the owner(s) of the characters or other elements involved any economic compensation.
