Terms of Service
The website www.brandikonic.com belongs to brandikonic; which is a registered brand and powered by Brandikonic Indian Company (“brandikonic”, “us”, and “we”).
brandikonic provides an online platform that helps connect and support customers who wish to purchase designs (“Customers”) and designers who wish to provide such designs (“Designers”), including, for example, through Design Projects. “User” means any user of the Site or Service, and may be a Designer or a Customer. “Sold Design” means the applicable winning Design Concept, purchased Design Template (and any customized version thereof), or the design sold under the Project Service. “Sale” means the applicable sale. “IPR” means all trade secrets, copyrights, trademarks, mask work rights, patents and other intellectual property rights recognized by the laws of any country.
1.2 Design Project.
(a) Customer may create a design Project (“Design Project”) by creating a design brief (“Design Brief”), paying the Customer Payment, and following the other instructions on the Site. The Design Brief must specify the requirements for the Design Project, such that Designers know the rules and criteria on which their Design Concepts will be judged. Designers assigned by brandikonic (in brandikonic’ sole discretion) to enter a Design Project may submit design concepts (“Design Concepts”) in the format specified by brandikonic by following the instructions on the Site. Design Concepts must comply with the Design Brief. (b) For All the Projects, the Customer must select one winning Design Concept by a certain time specified by brandikonic. If no winner is selected in the submission or selection round of a Project, brandikonic will retain the Customer's Advance Payment, and the Customer will have no right to a refund or to use the Design Concepts. (c) Any project placed on brandikonic Online Platform will have (from the Date & Time of placed project), (I) 10 Days of Design Submission Round & 5 Days of Design Selection Round. (II) After 15 Days, Project will get held automatically and the Client needs to contact the brandikonic Support to reactivate the Project. For every reactivation request, the project will be reactivated for 3 more days. (III) If the project doesn’t complete within 45 Days & if the Client still needs reactivation of the Project in that case, the client needs to complete all the remaining due payments for that project. (IV) If the client doesn’t complete the project in 90 Days, in that case, Project will be closed forever from the brandikonic side and brandikonic will keep all the initial payments made for the project. (d) For the avoidance of doubt, the Customer has no right or license to use any Design Concepts other than the Sold Design. Customer may not: (a) run a Design Project if Customer is tendering the creation of the same design through a service other than the Site; (b) allow or request Designers to submit Design Concepts to Customer via any means other than via the Site; and (c) collude concerning the awarding of a winner in a Design Project or awarding a separate account held by Customer as the successful Designer in a Design Project. (d) Customers and Designers must deal on an arm’s length basis and the Customer may not cancel any Design Project to contract separately with a Designer who the Customer meets through the Site which results in the Customer avoiding paying brandikonic any Customer Payment or any fees and charges of brandikonic. (e) Some jurisdictions provide Customers certain mandatory statutory rights (e.g., right to supplementary performance (e.g., rectification or replacement), right for a refund, right to withdrawal, right to reduce the price, and right to damages in case the Design Concepts are defective) (collectively, “Mandatory Statutory Rights”) which remain unaffected.

If any reason regarding design, brandikonic refunds the payment to the Customer; then the designer will have to reimburse the total project amount (not only the project incentive) to the brandikonic.
