GENERAL TERMS OF PROVIDED SERVICES
Since 1996, Lectio Translations has provided a comprehensive range of services centered on:
- TRANSLATION specialing in: Medical Translation, Legal Translation, Financial Text Translation, and Tourism Translation.
- INTERPRETING, and in particular: Specializing in medical conference interpreting, consecutive interpreting, and whispered interpreting.
- FILES PROCESSING
If you want to work with our Company and have us provide you with one or more of our services, please contact us by phone or email at email@example.com or the contact form on our website and ask for a quote for the service you want us to provide you. We will send you our financial offer to your email as soon as possible, which will clearly include the cost of the service provided, the method of payment, the date of completion, and the time and method of delivery of the project.
We immediately begin project execution upon your acceptance of our offer, shipment of required material, and payment of any advance payment by you.
The remuneration of our company for the work undertaken is agreed in writing in advance and is determined by the type, extent, and difficulty of the service provided, the description of the Customer, the material provided, the purpose of the work, and the instructions given by the Customer.
The Customer bears the cost of sending the project via courier.
If, after determining our company’s fee, it is discovered that the project presents specific difficulties that no party (neither our Company, our Partners, or the Customer) could reasonably have known at the time of the order, the Customer will be notified immediately, and our Company’s fee will be adjusted upon written agreement of the parties.
You are solely responsible for placing the correct order. In the event of an error (e.g., obvious incorrect word count, sending incorrect material, etc.), you must notify Our Company as soon as possible so that we can recalculate the cost of our provided service accordingly.
The cost estimate is not binding on the parties because it is provided for guidance or information purposes only.
METHOD OF PAYMENT:
Our fee for the services provided is as follows:
- When the project is assigned, 50% of the agreed fee is paid in advance.
- The remaining 50% is paid once this is completed.
If an invoice is issued, payment should be made within thirty (30) days of the issuance and dispatch of the relevant tax document (unless otherwise stated in an agreement concluded in this regard).
Our services can be paid for in the following ways: a) in cash at the Company’s headquarters, b) by bank transfer, or c) by credit card.
Payment by bank transfer is required for fees greater than 300.00 euros.
RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL:
According to the provisions of the Law, the Customer has the right. 2251/1994, to withdraw from the service contract without cause within fourteen (14) days of our company’s acceptance of the offer for the service provided.
In particular, the right of withdrawal is exercised by sending a relevant withdrawal statement to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
However, it is made clear that because part of the service has already been prepared at the time of notification of withdrawal, the fee for the part of the service that has been performed is normally due, and the withdrawal concerns the remaining – unfulfilled – part of the contract.
There is no right to withdraw from the concluded contract after the work is delivered, so the Customer must pay the entire agreed fee in full.
END OF CONTRACT
Each contracting party has the right to terminate the contract in writing at any time. The termination is effective after it is received by the counterparty in any convenient manner, including e-mail, and acts in the future. In any case, the cost of services rendered up to the time of complaint notification is due.
If we are unable to fulfill your order within the predetermined period due to force majeure (e.g. strikes, weather conditions, pandemics, technical problems, etc.), we will not be held responsible. We will contact you as soon as possible to ask if you want us to complete your order using the new data and in a new period.
DELIVERY OF PROJECT:
The parties’ special agreement specifies the time, place, and method of delivering the work each time.
The agreed-upon delivery time is binding and begins only after Our Company is aware of the material to be translated or edited in its entirety and has received the Customer’s overall instructions and guidance.
The delivery time is calculated on working days, excluding Saturday, Sunday, public holidays, and national holidays.
PROJECT ACCEPTANCE / REJECTION:
The project is considered definitively accepted by the Customer five (5) working days after delivery (via courier or electronically via e- mail or receipt from our offices).
We are not responsible for any errors made when submitting the project, and as a result, you cannot seek compensation from us.
Because of the nature of translation and file editing services, translation or spelling/syntax errors may occur. The Customer must notify us within the above deadline in order for us to make the necessary corrections at no additional cost. After the above deadline has passed and the project has been accepted, no changes, revisions, or refunds are accepted, and we are not responsible for any defects in the project. In any case, the parties may agree otherwise.
Complaints about problems with the project’s quality should be sent to us in writing (indicatively, by mail, registered letter, etc.) within the five (5) business days specified above, and should be accompanied by sufficient clarifications and justification, which can undoubtedly document the defectiveness of the delivered work. As long as the expressed complaints about the quality of our services are justified, the Company agrees to take corrective actions as soon as possible.
Any problems with a portion of the project have no bearing on the acceptance and receipt of the remainder of the project (such as indicatively the remaining files or the remaining sections of the project).
Lectio Translations accepts no responsibility for the translations’ suitability for the purpose for which the Customer intends them, nor for any positive or collateral damage caused to the Customer by them.
If the service provided does not meet the purpose for which it was requested, the Customer has the right to request, with the consent of Lectio Translations, a reduction in the price for the work provided.
PROJECT CHANGES / MODIFICATIONS:
Without our written permission, no changes or modifications to our company’s work are permitted. If, after delivery of the work to the Customer, he or any third party changes or modifies our delivered work without our written consent, our company is not responsible in any way for the modifications and their consequences.
Our Company reserves the right to refuse the requested services if there is a conflict of interest or if the file to be translated or edited is illegal, offensive, or inappropriate.
AMENDMENT OF THESE TERMS:
These terms are subject to change at any time and without notice. Please review the general terms of service on a regular basis, as your continued use implies your acceptance of these changes.
