2.2 Written Quotations that do not include the term ‘draft’, represent Indigo Dingo’s best estimate of the cost of Services and Materials required in order to complete the Deliverables. Although it is rare for the costs in a Quotation upon which Indigo Dingo is Engaged to change, unless expressly agreed in writing as being capped, the costs nevertheless remain an estimate and are therefore subject to the provisos outlined in the Contract and the individual explanations against each budget item.

However, the Client accepts that it is not always practical or possible to do this, particularly (but not without limitation) when on location and therefore agrees that in unusual circumstances, Indigo Dingo is empowered to incur reasonable additional costs where to not do so could be reasonably judged to be detrimental to the Client’s cause and the success of the Deliverables. Unless otherwise agreed, these additional costs will be capped at a maximum of £300 excluding VAT for the duration of the project.

5.3 All parties agree that their representatives shall have the right to discuss and accept as satisfactory such creative aspects as (without limitation) creative treatments, scripts, storyboards, voiceovers, motion graphics, music and edits.
5.4 For the complete avoidance of doubt, where interpretations of intangible aspects of the final creative execution of the Brief differ, the Quotation upon which Indigo Dingo is Engaged will be deemed to be the sole and final document that interprets the Brief and details the cost and scope of Services which the Client has commissioned Indigo Dingo to undertake.
5.5 The Client agrees to supply Indigo Dingo with an initial written or verbal Brief outlining its initial creative ideas and the final Deliverables required.
5.6 Where the Brief is supplied verbally or is limited or uncertain in its scope, Indigo Dingo will use its expertise to interpret the Brief with the full agreement and involvement of the Client in order to develop a final Brief that will result in the Deliverables that the Client agrees best suit its needs.
6. DELIVERY / SCHEDULE / DELIVERABLES:
6.1 The Client acknowledges that fulfillment of the Deliverables within the timeframe laid down in the Production Schedule;

If no dates are specified, delivery shall be within a reasonable amount of time.
6.3 Unless specifically detailed and agreed in advance in writing, the generation of media coverage and / or sales leads and / or advertising revenue will not be of the essence even where it forms part of the desired result of the Brief. Any failure to meet all or part of these desired targets will not constitute sufficient reason for the Client to refuse payment of any sums due, in full or in part, nor to delay payment beyond the agreed settlement period.
6.4 The Client review and approval process for all Deliverables, including (without limitation) the amount of post-production time allocated for making Client amendments, will be outlined in the Quotation, but Indigo Dingo reserves the right to charge additional fees and / or expenses for any Services and / or goods incurred over and above those detailed in the Quotation where the review and approval process takes longer than could reasonably have been foreseen.

However, Indigo Dingo reserves the right to charge for any additional services and / or goods incurred, including (but without limitation) post-production time and / or hard drive purchase and / or couriers to copy and transfer camera rushes to the Client and / or additional post-production fees to create new Deliverables from existing source material.
7.3 Unless specifically assigned under the terms of the Contract, under the terms of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, the Intellectual Property rights of all creative works created in the process of undertaking the Services will remain vested with the author, namely Indigo Dingo and / or its contractors. This does not affect the Client’s rights to use the material for their own purposes as detailed.
7.4 Under the terms of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988,Client assignment of the use of the Deliverables and / or Materials to a 3rdparty remains at the discretion of Indigo Dingo, must be requested in advance in writing and may incur additional costs and / or require the use of an author credit.
7.5 Even where the Intellectual Property rights of a creative work have been assigned under the terms of the Contract, the Intellectual Property rights of any creative works created outside the terms of the Services as specifically detailed in the Quotation will remain vested with Indigo Dingo and / or its 3rdparty contractors, for example (but without limitation) if Indigo Dingo creates a more detailed package of motion graphics than is budgeted for in the Quotation, on the agreed basis that the client gets a better (albeit non-exclusive) end product and Indigo Dingo retains an asset which can be repurposed at a later stage for other Clients.
7.6 Ownership of any physical Materials created or acquired in the process of undertaking the Services will not pass to the Client until payment for all sums due to Indigo Dingo has been received in full as cleared funds.
7.7 Ownership of the Deliverables and / or any Intellectual Property or usage rights assigned under the Contract will not pass to the Client until payment of all sums due to Indigo Dingo has been received in full as cleared funds. Client use of the Deliverables, creative works and Materials created under the terms of the Brief and Quotation is at the discretion of Indigo Dingo until all payments due have been received as cleared funds. Indigo Dingo reserves the right to demand the complete and immediate cessation of the use of any or all Deliverables and / or Materials and the immediate return and / or deletion of all Materials and Deliverables be they physical or digital, until payment of all outstanding sums has been received in full as cleared funds.
7.8 Unless specifically agreed under the terms of the Contract and even where Intellectual Property rights have been assigned under the terms of the Contract, Indigo Dingo and its contractors retain the right to store and use their creative works (or parts thereof) for the purposes of self promotion as they see fit, including but not limited to use on their websites and in promotional showreels.
7.9 Unless included in the Quotation, the contractual assignment of any or all Intellectual Property rights to the Client subsequent to initial Engagement may incur significant additional fees, including (but without limitation) intermediary negotiation fees, Intellectual Property licence fees and legal fees.
7.10 Not including any content and / or Materials supplied direct by the Client or where agreed in writing that the Client will administer such licences itself, Indigo Dingo agrees to obtain and hold suitable licences for all 3rdparty Intellectual Property acquired in the process of delivering the Services detailed in the Quotation, including (but without limitation) library music, stock footage, graphic templates and actor buyouts / residuals / releases. The duration and territorial scope of these licences will be listed in the Quotation and updated in writing should the scope change for whatever reason during the course of the project, but it remains the Client’s responsibility to ensure that the licence scope requested is sufficient for its purposes. Where the scope of the licence required changes either during or subsequent to Completion of a project, for example (but without limitation) where an advert initially intended for a UK internet site is then used in a globally syndicated TV advertisement with a ‘media buy,’ additional licence fees are likely to be due. Indigo Dingo may be able to negotiate new licences on behalf of the Client, but cannot be held responsible for any liability arising from a change in Scope of a licence beyond that covered in the original Quotation.
7.11 Although Indigo Dingo endeavours to gain signed consent forms for every featured person and / or location in line with industry best practice, the Client understands that under certain circumstances, particularly (but without limitation) where the use of a small crew has been deployed in order to reduce budgets beyond those initially recommended, that it is not always possible to get signed consent forms in every instance. As such, the Client agrees that, upon notification by Indigo Dingo of any locations and / or featured ‘artists’ appearing in the Deliverables for which a signed release form does not exist, it will either request that the location / artist is removed from the Deliverable or otherwise be deemed to have accepted full responsibility for any liability arising from the use of the images and furthermore warrants that it will not hold Indigo Dingo responsible for any resulting liability.

8.2 Unless expressly agreed under the terms of the Contract, Indigo Dingo will, for a period of five years from the Delivery date, preserve a master copy of all digital Materials and Deliverables, including (but without limitation) camera rushes. Although it is rare for Indigo Dingo to delete archived material, particularly final Deliverables, Indigo Dingo will be under no obligation to store such material beyond this period. If therefore, the Client requires definitive guaranteed storage beyond this period, it should therefore request that a complete copy of all footage and Materials is supplied to it upon Completion and that the relevant technical / Service fees are included in the initial Quotation.
8.3 In the event that Indigo Dingo becomes insolvent, or is unable to continue storing the materials and / or Deliverables for whatever reason during the five years after Delivery, the Client retains the right to retrieve all footage it has rights to, upon payment of reasonable Service fees and costs incurred in the process of transferring such material to the Client’s care.
8.4 With regard to physical Materials generated during the undertaking of the Services, including (but without limitation) props, artwork, costumes and sets, Indigo Dingo shall be under no obligation to store such items beyond the delivery date unless specifically requested under the terms of the Contract, in which case it reserves the right to charge reasonable storage fees at the going commercial rate. If therefore the Client wishes to retain any physical Materials to which ownership has been assigned under the terms of the Contract, but does not wish Indigo Dingo to arrange storage, the Client agrees to request their return before the delivery date and agrees to pay any costs incurred in their packing, transportation and delivery.
8.5 Indigo Dingo accepts no responsibility for the subsequent loss or damage of any Materials, be they physical or digital, after they have been successfully returned to the Client (in the case of originals) or supplied with duplicate copies for the express purpose of guaranteeing their storage and not relying on Indigo Dingo to store Materials, for instance (but without limitation) camera rushes.
