3.    OUR SERVICES 

Our Services, set out in the table at the end of these Terms, may be hosted exclusively online, in-person, or a combination of the two. In each case we will make it clear from the Service description which method applies. Some of our Services are very popular, so in some instances we may need to put you on a waiting list. 


We take pride in the Services that we offer and will provide them with reasonable skill and care, in accordance with good industry practice, and through people suitably qualified with relevant experience, but we can’t guarantee that the Services will meet your expectations, be suitable for your particular purposes or achieve a desired outcome.
We shall use all reasonable endeavours to manage and provide the Services in accordance with this agreement in all material respects and to meet any performance dates we agree with you, but such dates will be estimates only. 


We provide Services at our discretion and we reserve the right to refuse service for any lawful reason at any time. We may limit providing our Services to geographic region or jurisdiction. 


By using our Services, you agree that you won’t reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit any portion of the Services, or access to Services, without our prior written permission.


3.1.    Ordering to Use Our Services

When you make an order to use our Services, this is an offer to purchase them in accordance with these Terms. Your order for our Services will be accepted when we give you written acceptance of this: the contract for Services will be effective from this acceptance. 

These Terms apply to the exclusion of any other terms that you may impose or incorporate, or which are implied.

When making an order for our Services you agree to cooperate with us, including providing us with such information and materials as we reasonably need in order to properly provide you with the Services, and that the information you give to us is complete and accurate in all material respects. 

3.2.    Fees

Unless otherwise stated, we charge for our Services on a time and materials basis, which are calculated on an eight-hour day from 8:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday (excluding days banks in England are closed).

Most of our Services require up-front payment, for others we shall invoice you on completion of the Services. You shall pay each invoice we submit:


(a) within 30 days of the date of the invoice; and
(b) in full and in cleared funds to a bank account nominated in writing by us, and time for payment shall be of the essence.

Where payment is not made on time, we may charge interest on the amount unpaid from when it became due until payment of the unpaid amount is received. Interest on this will accrue each day at 4% a year above the Bank of England's base rate (including when below 0%) from time to time. In addition, we may suspend all or part of the Services until payment has been made in full.

We have the right to charge you for expenses reasonably incurred by us in providing the Services, including travelling expenses, hotel costs, subsistence and any associated expenses, and for the cost of services provided by third parties.

All amounts payable are exclusive of amounts in respect of value added tax chargeable from time to time (VAT). 

3.3.    Changes and Cancellations

We may modify, suspend or discontinue our Services at any time without notice. If we modify or cancel a Service you have signed up for, we will let you know by contacting the email or phone number you provided when ordering Services. 


We won’t be liable to you or to any third-party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of a Service, except to refund you when you have paid for a Service and it has been cancelled by us without cause. 


3.4.    Feedback 

You may provide us with feedback on your experiences with the Services and ideas for new Services that we could offer. We would like to use your feedback and ideas to improve our Services. By providing us with feedback and/or ideas, you agree that we may edit, copy, publish, distribute, translate, develop, and otherwise use them in any medium. You also understand that we are not obliged to pay compensation for any feedback or ideas.


When providing feedback or ideas, you warrant that it is your own, you have the right to provide it, and it is not provided on behalf of or at the expense of another. 


3.5.    Intellectual Property Rights

As such, we have put together a talent Casting Database and would be grateful if we could reference you on this, link to your website, include a headshot and some information about you, a description of your voice acting and use your audio demo reel in order to showcase your skillset. 


Following your use of our Services, we may contact you to invite you to be included on the Casting Database for an annual fee, currently £240 which will be charged on the first of April each year. To be clear, we will not act as agents of one another, and will continue to be independent parties. Your personal data is handled in accordance with our Privacy Policy (found at: Privacy Policy | BRAVA), and you can withdraw all or any parts of your references on the Casting Database at any time by contacting us but you understand that a prepaid Casting Database fee shall not be refunded to you. 


Including you on the Casting Database is at our discretion and we reserve the right to remove you or to amend and update the information about you at any time.

Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not be a waiver of such right or provision.

These Terms are effective unless and until terminated by either you or us. 


You may terminate these Terms at any time by notifying us that you no longer wish to use our Services. Your cancellation will be subject to our Cancellation Policy: Cancellation Policy | BRAVA

We will not refund you if we terminate for this reason. 


The obligations and liabilities of the parties incurred prior to the termination date shall survive the termination.
