The Site is a place offering an online opportunity of interaction where the Users-Buyers (“Buyers”) post projects for creative services (“Project/s”) and the Users-Creative (“Creative”) offer their works (“Creativity”) in line with Buyer’s requirements. The Buyer personally select the offers more adequate to its own requirements.
The Users hereby acknowledge that, giving the fact that the Site and the services here available are an instrument only, We and/or our controlling, controlled or linked companies (“Group”) are not part of the agreement for the assignment of Creative’s works in favour of the Buyer and We and/or our Group will not be involved at any title in the execution of said agreement.
Except whether expressly provided in the Contract, by providing the web platform (“Services”) BestCreativity does not offer or deliver solutions (save the case in which it requests a solution for its own purposes, where so expressly provided in the project) and it does not interfere in any manner in the relationships between the Users.
(b) Agreements between Buyers and Creative. By registering to the Site as User, the User acknowledges and accepts to execute an agreement directly with the other Users for buying or selling a Creativity.
There is no duty for the Creative to take part of a project posted by a Buyer.
By posting the Project, the Buyer will provide the selected Fee (i.e. the overall price offered for the purchase of a Creativity) as well as its own requirements and general information as to the desired Creativity and the final term for Creative for filing their Proposals.
The transmission of a Proposal of Creativity by a Creative under a specific Project posted by a Buyer remains, except for the effects of the selection according to paragraphs below, of the property of the Creative itself. The sole transmission of a Proposal of Creativity does not bind in any way the Buyer to select such a Proposal and the same Buyer and/or BestCreativity to pay any amount at any title.
By sending solutions and by taking part to a Project, Creative accepts all relevant conditions and undertakes not to offer or otherwise make available to third parties (inside and/or outside the Site) for its Creativity until the expiry of the term for selection provided hereinbelow and, should its Creativity be selected, it undertakes to assign the relevant property and right to use to the Buyer on the basis of the Purchase Agreement, as infra defined, and of this Contract, upon payment of the Fee.
The Buyer will be entitled to request amendments to the terms of the Project exclusively upon approval of BestCreativity and in any case not after having posted the same Project and/or the relevant brief.
Should, at the expiry date of a Project, the Buyer deem that no Proposal meets its requirements it will be entitled alternatively to:
(i) postpone the term for the participation to the Project up to a maximum period of 7 days, without modifying the relevant conditions; or
(ii) ask for - exclusively in relation to projects concerning graphic works, as also explained in the other pages of the Site - reimbursement of the Fee, net of an amount, indicated in detail in the pages of the Site, which will be paid to a Creative who took part to the Project itself. The reimbursement procedure does not apply to Project having as subject matter naming / business name or products’ name (i.e. copywriting).
The request of reimbursement shall be made by the Buyer within the date of closing of the Project. On the contrary, the following provisions will apply.
Upon expiry of the term for participating to a Project (as postponed, where the case, according to the above provisions) the Buyer undertakes to select a Creativity within the following 7 days.
Lacking any selection within this term of 7 days, BestCreativity will be entitled to select, also on the basis of the outcome of the technical means of the Site, the Creative, giving the Buyer a prior notice and invitation to select. In such a case, the Buyer hereby expressly authorizes us to arrange the payment of the Fee in favour of the winning Creative, provided that more than 7 days upon termination of the Project have been passed from the closing date of the Project (the winning Creative will be required to complete the Project and to deliver the final file according the signed agreement).
Notwithstanding the non-involvement of BestCreativity and/or of any other company of the Group in the relationships between Buyer and Creative, BestCreativity will arrange – within 7 days from the selection of the Proposal / Creativity by the Buyer – payment of the Fee in favour of the Creative according to the modalities provided on the Site and on behalf of the Buyer, thus releasing the non-interest bearing deposit.
In no case the Users, both Buyers and Creative, will be entitled to directly agree - outside the Site – upon the assignment of any economic right (and/or any linked right) of intellectual and/or industrial property on a Creativity being subject matter of an ongoing Project.
Notwithstanding the obligation not to assign an Account, as provided by article 2 above, no User will be entitled to assign in any way to third parties any right and/or obligation arising out of a selection of a Proposal within a Project. In particular, unless specifically authorized in writing by the other party, no User will be entitled to:
- assign to third parties the execution, in whole or in part, of a Creativity proposed within a Project;
