Commencement of Works:
Work will only commence after acceptance of full project specifications by the Customer and returned copy of the signed quotation with the deposit payment. Simply 360 reserves the right not to accept an order at its discretion. Changes and additions to project specifications may be made prior to Customer acceptance of the goods and services ordered. Still, we reserve the right to charge the Customer for any work undertaken until the time at which changed and/or new project specifications are provided. We also reserve the right to charge for additional work ordered due to new project specifications.
The Customer is responsible for:

This travel cost will be confirmed with the Customer in writing during the quotation stage and will need to be paid in addition to deposit payment prior to work commencement.

Reviews and Changes:
Simply 360 will provide a draft version of the 360 virtual tour for the Customer to review and provide feedback on any changes for a maximum period of 5 working days. After this time, the tour will be deemed completed by Simply 360 and tour files will be sent to the Customer. Should changes be requested after this time, there may be an administrative fee.

This is limited to the blurring of faces and number plates (for privacy), colour correction, image stitching and nadir patch. Any additional requested editing, ie. removing/adding elements to the photos are based on a per project basis and can be quoted by Simply 360 unless specified in the client quotation.

Delivery and Completion of Services (inc Delays):
Simply 360 will make every effort to deliver goods and services ordered within the time frames specified to the Customer upon order confirmation. Our turnaround time is based on the time taken to edit the images and build your tour/project. Should the turnaround time be outside our standard average, we will ensure that the Customer is fully aware. We commit to keeping Customers informed of any delivery delays arising from circumstances beyond our control. In no event will Simply 360 be held responsible for losses incurred to the Customer for delivery delays caused by circumstances outside our control.

The balance invoice will be issued during this time.
Weather plays a vital part in the photoshoot and if deemed unable to shoot due to weather, we will make arrangements with the Customer to reschedule and/or return for a re-shoot. If the photographic team is already on route to the site, Simply 360 reserves the right to charge $90+gst per hour per staff member (min 3 hour charge) and any related travel expenses (if applicable).
