1. Excel Digital Group / Divine Technologies Technicalities
(a) Description. The Excel Digital Group / Divine Technologies Service is an online offering where individuals or entities that have signed up with Excel Digital Group / Divine Technologies as clients (each, a “Client”) can post specific assignments and project descriptions, including illustrative samples or other media (each, a “Creative Brief”), revise those Creative Briefs (each, a “Revision Brief”) and obtain responses (each, a “Response”) to those Creative or Revision Briefs from design experts retained by Excel Digital Group / Divine Technologies (“Members”). Excel Digital Group / Divine Technologies will provide you, as the Client, the Service according to the Package you have chosen. Your Responses will be created iteratively through a drafting cycle of Creative Briefs, Revision Briefs and Responses, ultimately resulting in a final Response conforming to your various Creative and Revision Briefs.
(b) Creative Brief and Responses. You are solely responsible for preparing and posting detailed descriptions of each of your Creative Briefs to the Website, including providing samples illustrating your Creative Brief and any relevant deadlines. For each Response to a Creative Brief that you want to receive, a term sheet (a “Term Sheet”) will be generated that will contain, and be subject to, the terms and conditions you have established for the Creative or Revision Brief. Excel Digital Group / Divine Technologies is under no obligation to review a Creative or Revision Brief or Term Sheet for any purpose, including accuracy, completeness of information, quality or clarity. Excel Digital Group / Divine Technologies may decide, in its sole discretion, to deny a Creative or Revision Brief or a Term Sheet.
(c) Reviewing Responses. When Excel Digital Group / Divine Technologies provides you with a Response, you are responsible for reviewing the Response. If you fail to promptly inform Excel Digital Group / Divine Technologies that the Response is not reasonably responsive to the related Term Sheet or Creative Brief, you will be deemed to have accepted the Response. If you notify Excel Digital Group / Divine Technologies that you think a response is not reasonably responsive to the related Creative Brief, you shall then submit to the Website a Revision Brief containing information regarding amendments or modification to be made to the initial Response. After you provide Excel Digital Group / Divine Technologies with a Revision Brief, Excel Digital Group / Divine Technologies will provide you with a subsequent Response that conforms to the additional criteria you requested. Excel Digital Group / Divine Technologies is not responsible for the content of Responses developed to the extent that such Responses are prepared to conform to your Creative or Revision Briefs.
(d) Revision Cycles. Revision cycles generally consist of 2-6 additional compositions that incorporate changes you request in a Revision Brief. The purpose of the revision process is to create Responses that move your project forward in the specific direction you have determined. You may request significant changes in the first and second cycles, and the Responses generated might be quite different in nature from the original composition you selected. By the third revision request, your requests shall be modifications of the current composition only.

4. Important Information
How do I qualify to claim a refund?
When you receive initial design concepts for your design package and you do not find them according to your brief, you may choose to claim a refund. See below how these actions affect your eligibility to claim a refund:
|Stage||Money Back Status|
|None of the initial samples in any way match to the customer brief.||Customer can ask for a refund within 24 hours of the initial delivery|
|Customer asks for revisions by providing feedback||Money Back Guarantee does not remain applicable. 100% Satisfaction Guarantee becomes applicable.|
|Take no action for 60 days||Money back guarantee offer becomes void, however Excel Digital Group / Divine Technologies will review and uphold the offer on its own discretion|
How long does it to take to claim a refund?
It can take upto 21 business days to refund your amount. Our refund policy is detailed in Terms & Conditions of business.
Does the money back guarantee apply to all packages?
Money Back Guarantee applies to design packages only. Once you approve a design and ask for further revisions then the Money Back Guarantee becomes void. However you still qualify for 100% satisfaction guarantee which means that we will keep on working on your design until you are satisfied.
Why do Excel Digital Group / Divine Technologies provide Money Back Guarantee?
We are so confident of our skills and design quality that we provide Money Back Guarantee in case we fail to deliver. Money Back Guarantee is provided in good faith and we expect our customers to exhibit the same. In majority of the cases customer are very honest, co-operative and provide quality feedback in order to get the designs they want. However there is a minority that tries to take unfair advantage of this flexibility. They will place orders with many providers at the same time, get the design concepts from all and then ask for the money back. This practice is unfair, unethical and abusive of human skills. Apologies, but if you are one of those we would rather not have your business.
Design work is very subjective. Unless customer provides quality feedback, it is unlikely to get the designs right in the first attempt. Excel Digital Group / Divine Technologies is a custom design company that strongly believes in customer feedback and their involvement in the design process. In our experience, initial samples are rarely chosen as the final logo; instead they are used to bounce ideas. From the feedback provided on these samples we see details about the likes and dislikes of the customer and then provide revisions that are closer to the requirements. Money Back Guarantee cover the customers if we fail to deliver what they wanted.
Money Back Guarantee does not apply on:
- Content Writing
- Seo Services
- Marketing Support Services
- Telephone Services
Money Back Guarantee does not apply to design agencies, design studios and for those who are working on their client’s projects.
Note: Please note that customers claiming a refund will not be allowed to use the initial design concepts sent to them. Copy Rights of all designs remain the property of Excel Digital Group / Divine Technologies until fully paid.
