Gareth Stonier M.I.T.I. offers explicit guarantees on quality and delivery dates.
If you are not satisfied with a job, we will provide another version as quickly as possible at our expense. If the second version is still unacceptable, you shall have the right to a partial or total reimbursement. The conditions and procedure for contesting a job are described below.
In the event of a late delivery where the amount of time late expressed in business days is more than one-third the translation’s total time budget expressed in business days (i.e., 33% late), and if the delay is directly and only the fault of Gareth Stonier M.I.T.I. we shall reimburse up to 100% of the cost of the job.
General Sales Conditions
These general sales conditions apply to all jobs carried out by Gareth Stonier M.I.T.I. for his clients.
All translation requests must be accompanied by an order including the price established by the parties. This order must be sent to us by regular mail, e-mail or fax; we reserve the right to refuse to start a job without an order.
Technical documents shall be accompanied by reference documents supplied by the client and/or drawings or diagrams that provide a better understanding of such documents.
The cost of a translation shall be calculated using a count of words in the source language, unless otherwise previously established in writing.
In the event that a client cancels an order, all work already effected shall be billed at 100%, while work which is suspended shall be billed at 50%.
Unless otherwise specified, all invoices must be paid within five working days from the date they are issued.
Any late payment or failure to pay shall be cause for immediate collection of the entire amount due from the client, without previous notice or other formalities. Gareth Stonier M.I.T.I. reserves the right to request interest calculated according to the official rate of the Bank of Englnad in effect as of the date that such late payment is made. Moreover, the client must reimburse any expenses Gareth Stonier M.I.T.I. incurs to settle the case.
All work in progress and all orders in progress shall be suspended in the event of late payment.
Gareth Stonier M.I.T.I. shall not be held liable for any reason whatsoever for translations which are not stylistically satisfactory. Particularly for advertising and promotional material, the services of Gareth Stonier M.I.T.I. shall be limited to simple translation, unless expressly requested. Gareth Stonier M.I.T.I. shall not be liable for drafting the translated text in, for example, an advertising style that is different from the source text. Our liability shall be limited to the amount of the invoice.
Complaints shall only be taken into consideration if received by registered mail with return receipt within seven days of delivery of the job(s) or part of the job(s). All complaints must be accompanied by the original documents, disputed translations, and a letter of explanation. Once the above time period has elapsed, the translation shall be considered correct.
In the event of an unsatisfied client where a complaint is made within the established deadlines, Gareth Stonier M.I.T.I. agrees, at its own expense, to deliver an edited version of the disputed translation within a timeframe equal to one third of that previously established for the job, plus one business day. This second document shall be used to judge the quality of the translation in order to establish the amount of reimbursement, at Gareth Stonier M.I.T.I. own discretion.
Gareth Stonier M.I.T.I. shall not be held liable for any delays caused by malfunctioning faxes, modems, e-mail and/or other mail or carriers, not directly controlled by Gareth Stonier M.I.T.I.
In the event of late delivery where the time late is more than one third of the established delivery time, and in the event that the delay is directly and solely attributable to Gareth Stonier M.I.T.I., a reimbursement shall be paid, to be established between the parties, up to an amount of 100% of the job delivered late.
Defects present in one part of the translation shall not be grounds, for any reason whatsoever, for questioning the entire translation. Gareth Stonier M.I.T.I. reserves the right to make modifications to the translation in such case
Only written agreements between the parties shall be taken into consideration. The Court of Rome shall have jurisdiction for all disputes. In the event of failure to pay, all representation of partial or total reproduction of such translation shall be deemed illegal. Gareth Stonier M.I.T.I. reserves the right to request of a client who uses unpaid material the immediate payment of the translation and compensation for copyright where applicable.
