Terms & Conditions

Thanks for checking out Storytime! We’d be honored to memorialize your event through video so let’s make it official (we don’t have a ring 💍, sorry). Simply read all the information, fill out your details, and digitally sign the contract.

PURPOSE OF THE AGREEMENT

Client wishes to hire Storytime to provide services relating to Client’s event as detailed in this agreement. Storytime has agreed to provide such services according to the terms of this agreement.

SERVICES

Storytime shall provide Client with the services and/or products that the Client selects and purchases.

DELIVERY OF SERVICES

Storytime will provide all filming-related services on the established date of the event and final video deliverables no later than 2 months after the event date, unless otherwise specified in this agreement. When the provided services are tied to the number of guests that Client expects to attend Client’s event, Client agrees to notify Storytime with an accurate guest count.

COST, FEES & PAYMENT

The total cost for all services are due in full one week before the date of the event. Client shall pay the total cost to Storytime either through the purchasing process on the Storytime site or other methods agreed upon by both parties.

The $150 deposit payment is a non-refundable retainer. At a minimum, Client agrees that the retainer fee fairly compensates Storytime for reserving the event date, committing to provide the services, and turning down other potential projects/clients.

EXCLUSIVITY

Client understands and agrees that he or she has hired Storytime exclusive of any other videography providers. In order to provide a high level of satisfaction and quality of service, no other videography providers, other than any assistant or third party that Storytime hires to complete the services outlined in this agreement, are permitted to provide the same or similar services or products, paid or unpaid, at the locations and dates specified in this agreement.

What this really means...

We want to be able to provide you with the best videos possible. To do that, we don’t want to be competing with another videographer to get the perfect shot. This just means that you agree to only hire us as your exclusive videographer.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

In the event that any copyrighted work(s) are created as a result of the services provided by Storytime in accordance with this agreement, Storytime owns all copyrights in any and all work(s) Storytime creates or produces pursuant to federal copyright law (Title 17, Chapter 2, Section 201-02 of the United States Code), whether registered or unregistered. Any and all products, whether tangible or intangible, produced or created in connection with, or in the process of fulfilling this agreement, are expressly and solely owned by Storytime and may be used in the reasonable course of Storytime’s business.

Storytime grants to Client a non-exclusive license of product(s) produced with and for Client for personal use only so long as Client provides Storytime with attribution each time Client uses Storytime’s property. Personal use includes, but is not limited to, use within the following contexts:

  • In photos/videos on Client’s personal social media pages or profiles; or
  • In personal creations, such as a scrapbook or personal gift; or
  • In personal communications, such as a family messages or email.

What this really means...

This just means that you can’t use your wedding videos to advertise your business without our consent. You are absolutely able to share your wedding videos across social media and via most other methods of communication. We just ask that you give us credit whenever you post it publicly. On top of all that, we’ll use your awesome wedding videos to show other couples our skills.

ARTISTIC RELEASE

Client has spent a satisfactory amount of time reviewing Storytime’s work and has a reasonable expectation that Storytime will perform the services in a similar manner and style unless otherwise specified in this agreement.

Storytime will use reasonable efforts to ensure Client’s desired services are produced in a style and manner consistent with Storytime’s current portfolio and Storytime will try to incorporate any reasonable suggestion made by Client. However, Client understands and agrees that:

  • Client has spent a satisfactory amount of time reviewing Storytime’s work and has a reasonable expectation that Storytime will perform the services in a similar manner and style unless otherwise specified in this agreement.

Storytime will use reasonable efforts to ensure Client’s desired services are produced in a style and manner consistent with Storytime’s current portfolio and Storytime will try to incorporate any reasonable suggestion made by Client. However, Client understands and agrees that:

  • Every client and event is different, with different tastes, budgets, and needs;
  • services are often a subjective art and Storytime has a unique vision, with an ever-evolving style and technique;
  • Storytime will use its artistic judgment when providing services for Client, which may not include strict adherence to Client’s suggestions;
  • although Storytime will use reasonable efforts to incorporate Client’s suggestions and desires when providing Client with the services, Storytime shall have final say regarding the aesthetic judgment and artistic quality of the services;
  • dissatisfaction with Storytime’s aesthetic judgment or artistic ability are not valid reasons for termination of this agreement or request of any monies returned.

What this really means...

We just want to make sure you’ve checked out our other videos and like our style. We’ll do our best to incorporate any suggestions you have for your videos, but we have an overall vision for your event and want to be able to tell the story of your event with our techniques.

LIMIT OF LIABILITY

Client agrees that the maximum amount of damages he or she is entitled to in any claim relating to this agreement or services provided in this agreement are not to exceed the total cost of services provided by Storytime.

In the event that any or all product(s) are lost, such as damage to or loss of a component of the product necessary for final delivery, Storytime shall refund Client a pro-rated portion of the total cost based on the amount of services that were completed/provided against the amount of services that were agreed to be completed/provided.

Client agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Storytime and its affiliates, employees, agents and independent contractors for any injury, property damage, liability, claim or other cause of action arising out of or related to services and/or product(s) Storytime provides to Client.

 

What this really means...

If some unforeseeable event happens where a falcon flies down and steals one of our cameras with some of your video footage on it, we’ll give you a refund for the parts of your package that we aren’t able to create due to that missing footage. Also, if your Uncle Steve sees that he’s about to walk in front of one of our cameras during your wedding ceremony and decides to dive out of the way at the last second resulting in a broken thumb, we’re not responsible for that injury.

CANCELLATION, RESCHEDULING & NO-SHOWS

If Client desires to cancel services, reschedule Services, or if it becomes impossible for Storytime to render services due to the fault of the Client or parties related to Client, such as failure of the event to occur or failure of one or more essential parties to the event to show up in a timely manner, Client shall provide notice to Storytime as soon as possible via email or phone.

Storytime has no obligation to attempt to re-book further services to fill the void created by Client’s cancellation, rescheduling, no-show, or if it becomes impossible for Storytime to provide the services due to the fault of Client (or parties related to Client), and Storytime will not be obligated to refund any monies Client has previously paid towards the total cost.

Client is not relieved of any payment obligations for cancelled services, rescheduled services, failing to show up for the event, or should it become impossible for Storytime to provide the services due to the fault of Client (or parties related to Client) unless the parties otherwise agree in writing. For instance, if Storytime is able to secure another event, then Storytime may choose, at its sole discretion, to excuse all (or a portion of) Client’s outstanding balance of the total cost.

If for any reason Storytime does not show or can not show due to emergencies, a full refund will be given.

 

What this really means...

If you cancel your event or the main person decides to not show up, we’re not obligated to refund you the money you’ve already paid us. However, we’re not animals and will certainly try to be flexible if something like that does happen.

IMPOSSIBILITY

Notwithstanding the above, either party may choose to be excused of any further performance obligations in the event of a disastrous occurrence outside the control of either party, such as, but not limited to:

  •  A natural disaster (fires, explosions, earthquakes, hurricane, flooding, storms, or infestation); or
  • war, invasion, act of foreign enemies, embargo, or other hostility (whether declared or not); or
  • any hazardous situation created outside the control of either party such as a riot, disorder, nuclear leak or explosion, pandemic, or act or threat of terrorism.

In the event Storytime cannot or will not perform its obligations in any or all parts of this agreement, it (or a responsible party) will:

  • Immediately give notice to Client via email or phone; and
  • issue a refund or credit based on a reasonably accurate percentage of services rendered; and
  • excuse Client of any further performance and/or payment obligations in this agreement.

Any global pandemic resulting in cancelation, the total price will be refunded entirely. If for any reason we can not reschedule with “Client” due to prior bookings, the total price be refunded entirely.

What this really means...

If there is some crazy event like a natural disaster or terrorist attack that prevents either of us from holding up our end of this agreement, we both can agree to reschedule your event for another date. We just want to make sure we’re both on the same page if something like that happens.

GENERAL PROVISIONS

The laws of Ohio govern all matters arising out of or relating to this agreement, including torts. If any portion of this agreement is deemed to be illegal or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this agreement remain in full force. Parties shall provide effective notice to each other via email or phone at the date and time which the notice is sent.

This Agreement constitutes the final, exclusive agreement between the parties relating to the event and services contained in this agreement. All earlier and contemporaneous negotiations and agreements between the parties on the matters contained in this agreement are expressly merged into and superseded by this agreement.

The parties may amend this agreement only by the parties’ written consent via proper notice.

What this really means...

Since we’re based in Ohio, the laws of Ohio are what we base our contact on. Other than that, you agree that this is the final contract and that we can make updates to this contract if we both agree on the changes.
