The website located at http://www.ultimatedesigns.agency (the “Site”) is a copyrighted work belonging to Ultimate 360 Guild Limited Number: 216090 (“Ultimate Designs”, “us”, and “we”). Certain features of the Services or Site may be subject to additional guidelines, terms, or rules, which will be posted on the Service or Site in connection with such features. To the extent such terms, guidelines, and rules conflict with these terms of use, these terms of use shall govern.

These terms of use (“Agreement”) set forth the legally binding terms for your use of the Site and Services (whether as a Customer, Designer or as a Producer/Supplier). By registering for Services, you are accepting this Agreement and you represent and warrant that you have the right, authority, and capacity to enter into this Agreement. You may not access or use the Site or Services if you are not at least 18 years old. If you do not agree with all of the provisions of this Agreement, you cannot use the Services.

In case you are located outside Uganda this Agreement requires the use of arbitration on an individual basis to resolve disputes, rather than jury trials or class actions, and also limits the remedies available to you in the event of a dispute.

Ultimate Designs provides an online platform that helps connect design seekers (“Customers”) and designers who wish to provide such designs (“Designers”), and the Project Service (each as defined below and collectively, the “Services”). “User” means any user of the Site or Service, and may be a Designer or a Customer. If you are a User, the provisions in this Agreement regarding Users apply to you. If you are also a Customer, further the provisions in this Agreement regarding Customers apply to you. If you are also a Designer, further the provisions in this Agreement regarding Designers apply to you. “Winning 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.

(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 clearly specify the requirements for the Design project, such that Designers clearly know the rules and criteria on which their Design Concepts will be judged. Customer must select one winning Design Concept by a certain time specified. If no winner is selected after the selecting winner session of a Design Project, Ultimate Designs will retain the Customer Payment, Ultimate Designs will distribute the Designer Fee equally among the Designers who participated in the Design Project and who have won a Design Project in the past and who have not breached this Agreement, and Customer will have no right to a refund or to use the Design Concepts. If no winner is selected in the final round of a Design Project, Ultimate Designs will retain the Customer Payment, Ultimate Designs will distribute the Designer Fee equally among the finalists who satisfy criteria determined by Ultimate Designs’ in its sole discretion, in the final round of the Design Project, and Customer will have no right to a refund or to use the Design Concepts. (b) For the avoidance of doubt, Customer has no right or license to use any Design Concepts other than the Winning 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 in relation to 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. Customers and Designers must deal on an arm’s length basis Customer may not cancel any Design Project for the purpose of contracting separately with a Designer who Customer meets through the Site which results in Customer avoiding paying Ultimate Designs any Customer Payment or any fees and charges of Ultimate Designs. (e) Some jurisdictions provide Customer 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.

The Design Transfer Agreement, available at http://ultimatedesigns.agency/common/t&cs/design-transfer-agreement.pdf, sets forth the legally binding terms between the applicable Designer and Customer for the sale of a Winning Design through the Design Project Service.

The following terms apply to Customers who have purchased a Winning Design and Designers who have sold a Winning Design.

For the Design Project, (a) Customer will pay the Customer Payment to Ultimate Designs and Ultimate Designs will pay Designer the Prize Amount (subject to first receiving payment from Customer), and (b) Designer will upload the Winning Design and Ultimate Designs will deliver the Winning Design to Customer, in a format specified by Ultimate Designs. If Customer accepts the Design as described above, then Ultimate Designs will pay Designer the Prize Amount. The “Customer Payment” means (i) the price selected by Customer when Customer requested a Design. The “Prize Amount” means the Customer Payment for the Winning Design, less 18% fees and charges imposed by Ultimate Designs and minus any applicable Taxes.

In case of order cancellation, The customer’s deposited funds will be refunded upon request less 18% of the cost of the order charged as administration fees using the payment methods specified by Ultimate Designs from time to time. Ultimate Designs may refund Customers for the following reasons: (i) the Winning Design is Defective; (ii) Ultimate Designs is required by law or considers that it is required by law to do so; (iii) Ultimate Designs determines that issuing a refund to Customer will avoid any dispute or increased costs to Ultimate Designs; (iv) Ultimate Designs issues the refund to Customer in accordance with any refund policy specified by Ultimate Designs from time to time; (v) the order placed (or request made) by Customer is found to be fraudulent; (vi) Customer placed a duplicate order (or request) in error; or (vii) The delivered goods deviate from agreed standards/quality; (viii) The delivered goods have printing defects; (ix) The delivered goods have variations in quantity; (x) Delivery is not made within the Guaranteed Period. A Winning Design will be deemed to be “Defective” if: (i) Customer and Designer agree it is defective and notify Ultimate Designs of this fact; (ii) the Winning Design is subject to a third party claim that the Winning Design infringes/misappropriates such party’s IPR, that is not frivolous; (iii) does not comply with the requirements set in a Design Brief in a Design Project or with the requirements set in a customization request for a Design Template or Design Project request.

(a) The Prize Amount will be paid to Designer in the local currency. Ultimate Designs is not an escrow service and does not hold property on behalf of any person. All amounts deposited or paid to Ultimate Designs are property of Ultimate Designs and Ultimate Designs may use those funds as it sees fit. The only rights that you have to receive payment of any amounts held by Ultimate Designs are as set out in this Section 3.3.

You agree that you are responsible for the collection and/or payment of all Taxes which you may be liable for in any jurisdiction arising from your sale or purchase of any Winning Designs via the Site.
