3. Payments, Accounts and Refunds
3.1 Automatic Subscription Renewals: To ensure uninterrupted service, we'll automatically bill you for our Services from the date you submit your subscription and on each renewal period afterwards until cancellation. Your renewal period will be equal in time to the renewal period of your current subscription. For example, if you're on a monthly subscription plan, each billable renewal period will be for one (1) month. We’ll automatically charge you the applicable amount using the payment method you have on file with us.
3.2 Payments and Cancellations: You may cancel our services anytime. Please note that in order to cancel you have to do it via your 'my account' tab on the left-hand side section of your dashboard. The support team is only able to answer questions. However, as a customer, you must take action in order to cancel or pause your account. Actions must be taken by you.
You can either Cancel or Pause your subscription. Please note below the main differences between Cancelling and Pausing your subscription:
3.3 Cancelling your subscription:
By cancelling your account your design team will permanently stop design requests being worked on (if any) on this account and you will lose all access to The Futures Portal and links to your stored files within our secure storage cloud. All ongoing projects that are not finished will not be continued. You are responsible for making sure you cancel your subscription before the exact cycle date and time you initially subscribed on. If you are charged and then attempt to cancel right after you have been charged please note that the time has passed as your subscription will have started its next cycle and you will be ineligible for any refunds. In this case you will be able to still make requests and obtain designs until the expiration of the newly paid cycle and until its remaining days. As with any other subscription service you are responsible for keeping track of your payment cycles’ dates and times.
3.4 Pausing your subscription:
This option allows you to temporarily pause design requests on your account. After your last complete active project unit cycle is finished you will be billed a small monthly nominal fee in order to keep full access to your files through the The Futures Portal. All ongoing projects will be worked on until your last active project unit is expired. Once you re-activate your account you will be able to re-open tickets and full payment of last standing active project unit will start again. You are responsible for making sure you pause your subscription before the exact cycle date and time you initially subscribed on. If you are charged and then attempt to pause right after you have been charged please note that the time has passed as your subscription will have started its next cycle and you will be ineligible for any refunds. In this case you will be able to still make requests and obtain designs until the expiration of the newly paid cycle and until its remaining days. As with any other subscription service you are responsible for keeping track of your payment cycles’ dates and times.
3.5 Cancelling under the 14-Day Satisfaction Guarantee period:
As per our Terms of Services cancelling your membership within the 14-Day 100% Satisfaction Guarantee bans you and your enterprise to use any of the designs produced by our team for your account and these designs cannot be used by you or anyone in contact with you for any personal or commercial purposes whatsoever, please make sure you haven't either sold them or publish them anywhere.
3.6 We will keep your logins and account active so you can access all previously submitted files until the end of your current billing period. The Futures reserves the right to change our pricing and offerings at any time without prior notice.
3.7 Please note we are not a project-based platform, meaning we produce work for you and amend from your feedback on projects only as long as you are a paying customer and your account is in good standing.
3.8 Beyond the 14 day window for your subscription, there are no refunds for partial subscription plans under any circumstance, including unused time on a plan. Upgrades, promotions, and/or adjustments to existing plans are non-refundable. You, the client are responsible to use the service (The Futures) after payment.
3.9 You will not be eligible to a refund if you are found not to have followed our terms of service.
4. Good Standing Account Defined
4.1 In order for your account to remain in good standing you must have the correct payment card on file and your payments cannot be delayed for more than five (5) consecutive days. As soon as your payment is delayed for 5 consecutive days or more your account will not be considered to be in good standing. If your payment is delayed you will be advised to either approve payment with your bank, update your card details within your dashboard or show proof of payment in any other way we may deem appropriate.
4.2 Be mindful that once you update your card details in the system you must let us know and we will corroborate that payment has indeed come through in order not to cause any delays in the delivery of any of your ongoing work.
4.3 Please note that when payments are delayed all projects in your queue will be fully stopped, including any amendments you may be missing regardless of their importance or length of time it may take to have them done or delivered to you. Projects being worked on or in your queue will not be delivered until payment is received.
4.4 As a subscriber, during your subscription, you are fully entitled and responsible to download all or any files we are storing for you during the time you are in good standing and with no payment delays in your account. However, once your payment is delayed by at least 24 hours we will temporarily pause access to storage within our system as this is part of your paid subscription.
4.5 Please bare in mind that if we don’t receive payment from you within 5 consecutive days of a delayed payment your account will automatically be cancelled and you will lose complete access to our platform, and storage.

17.1 A creative round is a measurement of creative output and what we are able to accomplish in a creative round depends on the complexity and total volume of your requests. A creative round begins when the request or revision is assigned to our team through our Design Request Form. Requests or revisions will not be assigned if they are unclear, vague or missing required assets and information. We will make every attempt to deliver a request according to your timelines, however there is no guarantee.
18. Delivery Output
18.1 You may submit as many design requests as you would like to and all requests will be stored on our management software and prioritized in order of arrival. Our team will work on one design at a time for you including revisions. In order for us to move onto the next project, your current project must be fully completed and approved before we can move onto the next project. You can also Pause or Cancel a project if you no longer wish for that project to be completed. Pausing or Canceling a project will instantly stop its production and allow our team to move onto the next project in line.
18.2 Production of a design, variations and editable files occur one design at a time delivered per business day.
When a request contemplates the production of two or more designs, it is then considered a request with multiple projects. Meaning that designs will be produced for each of the projects at a pace of one design at a time and delivered a day at a time until completion.
As this requires a bit of management, your account managers will very smoothly process their production and will let you know about the delivery schedule for each of these.
18.3 Our service is a next day delivery service. Meaning, deliveries are done before midnight of the next business day in relationship to the local time of the customer's main understood place of operations with revisions being delivered for one project at a time, one business day at a time.
