Terms and Conditions
Thank you for choosing Stradeso! We believe in turning problems into projects...so to help avoid any future problems, here is what you can expect from Stradeso.
- Stradeso is in beta. That means two things: First, because our tech is new, sometimes our technology or our processes will mess up. But, because we’re watching carefully, the good news is that you’re going to get extraordinary customer service and personalized attention during this phase. If you’re willing to be patient with us, we promise we’ll do everything we can to make you completely satisfied with your experience.
- Your content will be fast, cheap, and quality -- in that order. Stradeso can’t possibly compete with the quality of an agency that charges $2,800 for your brochure. But, since you’re paying 90% less, we hope that’s OK. With Stradeso, you’ll get your content fast and cheap, and we have multiple quality control processes in place to make sure it’s high quality. If you don’t like something, that’s what your 2 free editing rounds are for -- and for just $20 per additional round, we’ll try it as many times as it takes to make it right.
- Check your projects for accuracy. We’re not designed for you to come back and ask to correct a comma after you’ve approved your project, so please check that you’re satisfied with the final project before approving. We cannot be responsible for errors in projects you approve, and we appreciate your understanding.
- We’re going to give you feedback to make you a better creative director. If you fill out a creative brief and we need more detail, we’re going to reach out to you. We hope you’ll be open to our feedback, since your concierge’s sole responsibility is to make your project successful for you.
- You own the rights to your content. Once you pay for it, you own it. If you upload images or copy to us, we expect that you own the rights to them. If we use images, they will be license-free. When you’re done, you get the final files to do whatever you want with them. We do keep a copy of your files so that, when you return, your next project can benefit from seeing what else was done to your brand, but these files are secured by Google’s IT security protection.
- We protect your data. We comply with GDPR, we won’t sell your data, ever, and we don’t do anything with data beyond normal analysis of how Stradeso’s platform is doing.
- We’re going to advertise to you because we want you to use Stradeso. You’re going to get a weekly newsletter which you can decide to opt out of anytime by clicking “unsubscribe” at the bottom of those emails. We may send you offers so you can get Stradeso projects at a discount. If you don’t like our advertising, just reply and let us know.
- Cancel anytime. You can cancel your subscription anytime, but we can’t give you a prorated refund. We might change our subscription fee in the future, and if we do you’ll get plenty of notice beforehand so you can decide whether to stay or leave us (which will make us sad).
Thank you again for letting Stradeso build your brand on demand. You can read the legal version of these guidelines below if you like doing that sort of thing (we won’t judge).

12. Don’t abuse Stradeso
Stradeso is not meant to replace a full-time graphic designer or copywriter – so use your common sense!

Your right to use Stradeso’s services shall terminate upon your breach of any term of this Agreement.
13. Output files
While we do our best to minimize any mistakes, due to the nature of creative design and copywriting we can not guarantee all files delivered will be 100% error free. Upon file delivery you agree to review and proof all files for any errors or omissions and notify our team if any changes/corrections are needed. Stradeso is not responsible or liable for any losses or expenses incurred from errors or omissions.

By default, you agree to provide Stradeso with a non-exclusive right and license to publish your work in our portfolio, social media, awards contests or other communication efforts. If you would like to revoke this right, please notify our team in writing to email@example.com.
16. Work and delivery output
Stradeso’s output volume depends on many factors, namely depending on the total request volume and complexity. We will do our best to work with you to accommodate any priority items and your timelines, but our suggestion is to not use our service for time sensitive requests.
