Terms Of Business

MoMac Socialising Media Ltd Terms & Conditions

We get it, complicated legal jargon isn’t for everyone so let’s cover a basic agreement before we get into our full terms and conditions.

1. Respect Each Other
Let’s respect each other and we’ll all finish with something we’re all proud of.

2. Keep The Momentum Going
There’s nothing more satisfying than getting to project completion, but to get there please ensure you work with us where required to keep your project on track.

3. Trust Us
At the end of the day, we’re here to help you succeed. We have your best interests at heart and we need you to trust that we know what we’re doing. We ask that you trust us to make the right judgements and decisions.

4. Provide Clarity & Avoid Lengthy Revisions
Please provide project and expectation clarity and keep your revisions to a reasonable amount and avoid to-and-fros over small details. One way to overcome this is by providing clear notes and by collating all feedback and providing it to us at once, this will help keep your budget on track.

5. Care & Dedication
We carry out all projects with care and dedication but we take no liability whatsoever for the impacts our work has on your business (good or bad). If our work helps you double your revenue overnight, you get all the recognition. If it leads to you getting sued, you take all the blame.
