    • Estimates/quotations by Orion remain open for acceptance for 30 days from the date of the estimate or quotation.


  • No contract shall come into existence until the client’s order has been accepted by Orion. The client may place an order by either:
    • Accepting the quotation via telephone, by email, in person or in writing; or
    • Paying the deposit (if any) referred to in the estimate or quotation; or
    • Communicating its order to Orion in a manner otherwise than in accordance with above.
  • The client cannot cancel a contract after an order has been accepted by Orion and is bound to pay the estimated or quoted price.
  • Any requested changes to the project after the project has been quoted, shall constitute additional editing and incur additional charges or fees. Additional charges for editing and changes shall be billed at a range between $150 and $200 excluding goods and services tax (gst) per hour depending on the service required. All additional changes must be submitted and approved by both parties by email.


  • Unless otherwise agreed in writing, prices are estimated and quoted in Australian currency. Goods and services taxes (GST) will be itemised on the quote. Any verbalised quote will be considered exclusive of GST.
  • Orion reserves the right to require the client to pay for products and/or services prior to their supply. This will often be the case with acquisition of a new client with no prior credit history with Orion.
  • Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the client will be invoiced a 25% deposit for the agreed scope of work. Payment of deposits shall be made within seven (7) days following the date of invoice and this payment is required before work commences. The remaining 75% will be invoiced in part or in full pending the size of the job. Once the scope of work has been completed and payment of invoices shall be made within thirty (30) days following the date of invoice.
  • If the client does not pay their account by the due date and has not entered into any payment arrangement (which is at Orion’s sole discretion), Orion reserves the right to stop working for the client immediately and will not be liable to the client for any loss that they may suffer as a result of such discontinuance.
  • Orion reserves the right to correct any typographical or clerical errors accidently contained in the prices or specifications.
  • If the client fails to pay any sum payable pursuant to any contract when due:
    • Orion may treat the contract as repudiated by the client or may until payment in full is made, suspend delivery of services without incurring any liability whatsoever to Orion;
    • The client shall be liable for all the expenses and costs (including indemnity legal costs) in relation to Orion enforcing or attempting to enforce a contract or these terms and conditions.


  • In the event that the amounts payable by the client to Orion are overdue, or the client fails to meet any other obligation to Orion, under this or any other contract or agreement or in Orion’s opinion the client is likely to be unable to meet any payment or other obligations to Orion; or
  • the client becomes insolvent, has a receiver appointed in respect of all or some of its assets, makes or is likely to make an arrangement with its creditors or has a liquidator (provisional or otherwise) appointed or is placed under statutory or official management; or
  • the client no longer carries on business or threatens to cease carrying on business; or
  • the ownership or effective control of the client is transferred, or the nature of the client’s business is materially altered; then
  • Orion shall be entitled to cancel all or any part of any contract with the client which remains unperformed, in addition to and without prejudice to its other remedies; and all amounts outstanding under this contract or any other.


  • Unless otherwise agreed, Orion shall retain copyright and intellectual property rights in all documents, reports, records, media, electronic files, drawings, web development, artwork and designs prepared for and on the client’s behalf.
  • The client will be entitled to use the documents and any copies for the purposes for which they were requested. However, unless otherwise agreed, the client (or any other person or entity) is not permitted to make use of, or modify, any such document for any other purpose without Orion’s agreement in writing. Concepts not chosen will also remain the property of Orion.
  • The client agrees to a quote to commission Orion for the finished product—e.g. the advert, the brochure, the business card, the video or any other piece of marketing collateral. The finished product is the PDF, JPEG, PNG, MPEG or finalised format requested for distribution to the public.
  • If the client seeks access to the design working files, this must be discussed with Orion prior to quoting. An artwork release fee will be incurred for the supply of native, design working/source files.


  • The client agrees that Orion will not be liable for any indirect or consequential damages, including but not limited to, loss of profits or for any claim made on the client by any other party, even though Orion may have been notified of such damage or claims.
  • In particular, Orion shall not be liable for any loss or damages arising, either directly or indirectly, from search engine rankings or social media marketing, including but not limited to any losses resulting from changes in search engine rankings, the closure of social media accounts and non-compliance with social media provider guidelines.
  • Orion shall not be liable to the client for any loss or damage directly or indirectly arising out of or in connection with any delay in delivery of the goods or failure to perform its obligations to the client where such delay or failure is caused directly or indirectly by the client (for example, by changing its requirements, additional out-of-scope work, not providing timely feedback or approval of proofs) or by an act of God, armed conflict, labour dispute, civil commotion, intervention of a government, inability to obtain labour, materials or manufacturing facilities, accidents, interruptions of, or delay in, transportation, weather conditions or any other cause beyond Orion’s control.
  • The client agrees to defend, indemnify and hold Orion harmless from and against any and all claims, losses, liabilities and expenses (including legal costs) related to or arising out of the services provided by Orion to the client, including without limitation claims made by third parties (including the client’s customers) related to any false advertising claims, liability claims for products or services sold by the client, claims for patent, copyright or trademark infringement, claims due to disruption or malfunction of services provided by Orion, or for any content submitted by the client for publication by Orion.
  • If, despite the above, Orion is found to be liable to the client, then its liability for any single event or series of related events is limited to the fees paid by the client to Orion for those particular services.
  • Due to the public nature of the internet, all material submitted by the client for publication will be considered publicly accessible. Orion does not screen in advance any client material submitted to Orion for publication. Orion’s publication of material submitted by the client does not create any express or implied approval by Orion of such material.


  • Where Orion has created or designed a website for the client, the client must make payment in full prior to the website ‘going live’ on the internet. Should payment not be made in full, Orion reserves the right to not release that website until such time as it receives payment in full. In the event that the website is already live, Orion reserves the right to take the website down from the internet until such time as it receives payment in full.
  • The client acknowledges and agrees that it will be liable for all of the costs restoring the website to the internet where it has been shut down due to non-payment.
  • The client agrees that it will be charged for any work it requests Orion to complete or undertake that is outside of the scope of the estimate/ quote and the approved design. After going live, updates or changes the client wishes to make to the website will also be chargeable.
  • Where Orion has created or designed a website for the client, the website will have a 30-day warranty.
  • This warranty period will start from the date on which the website is published to the live domain and is accessible online.
  • This warranty covers any coding, design or content issues that may arise after the website has gone live, provided that the issue/s had not been discovered or approved by the client during the acceptance period. This does not cover issues implemented by the client.
  • Any changes the client wishes to make to the website after the warranty period will be chargeable.
  • This warranty does not cover any third-party apps or services that are installed or implemented by the client or any other person acting on the client’s behalf after the website has been accepted.
  • This warranty does not cover any third-party apps, systems or APIs that are outside of Orion’s control.
  • If the client chooses to delay the go-live date, the warranty period will be the earlier of 30 days from “go live” or 60 days after the date on which the website is accepted. The website will be considered accepted once the client has approved the site, prior to the website ‘going live’ on the internet.
