This agreement establishes the relationship between VoicesUK and the user, referred to as the “Client,” who may act as a voice talent providing services or a client acquiring the services of a voice talent.
Access to VoicesUK’s online services (the “Services”) will be granted to the Client, allowing them to utilize various services offered to Clients in accordance with the selected service level. The Client is obligated to pay VoicesUK the standard fees specified on the VoicesUK website for the chosen service level. VoicesUK reserves the right to modify fees and service levels, with such changes becoming effective no earlier than the end of the current Term. Voice talent fees for each assignment, along with a 20% administration fee (plus payment processing fee) for VoicesUK, are payable in advance. Joining VoicesUK involves a one-time administration fee of £99.99, and a 6-month trial option is available for £49.99. This one-time administration fee covers showcase setup and provides lifetime membership to the VoicesUK site.
Payments for voice talent work are collected via VoicesUK’s partner Stripe and paid to talent via Paypal or bank transfer (on request). Such payments are immediate but will be released to the voice talent only upon delivery and approval by the purchaser. The use of any payment method other than VoicesUK’s service is prohibited, and the Client agrees not to circumvent this Payment Service.
By paying an invoice the Client agrees to the terms outlined here. Following delivery of recorded audio: after 14 days of inactivity/non-communication the project will be assumed closed and funds will be released to the voice artist. Further amendments after that time will be possible on negotiation of a new fee. Unwatermarked final quality delivered audio is non-refundable. Fees include any corrections to voice artist pronunciation errors, intonation mistakes and/or unfollowed direction. Changes in direction and/or script content is possible on negotiation of a new fee. Any recordings as part of this agreement may not be used to create an artificial voice model of any type, now or in the future, on any platforms or devices known or not known.
