Parsons Design maintains the right to make alterations to this agreement as deemed necessary. The terms and conditions dictated comprise a legally binding document for all clients.
Client refers to the individual or entity engaging in or requesting the services of Parsons Design. Usage of the terms “you” or “your” refer to the client entity.

Project work will only be carried out upon formal orders by the client. Orders can be carried out through email or telephone and constitute a written or verbal contract. Through the use of this website, or through the initiation of project work, you assure Parsons Design that you possess the legal capacity to agree to all applicable terms and conditions, and that you have the authority to bind any organization or entity you claim to represent to those same conditions. Parsons Design will only knowingly conduct work for clients aged 18 years or older.
Pricing, Refunds, and Payments
All product prices appearing on the Parsons Design website are quoted in Canadian Dollars. Parsons Design reserves the right to alter pricing at its own discretion. There is no guarantee of refund in the event of cancellation by client. All refunds offered are at the sole discretion of Parsons Design. Parsons Design retains the option to prorate refunds as Parsons Design deems appropriate. Parsons Design has the option of halting or delaying service in the event of late payments, as well as retaining the option to charge late fees.
Parsons Design does not charge a cancellation fee to clients. All cancellation requests must be formalized and submitted to Parsons Design via contact through email and/or telephone. All fees and costs incurred and paid by the client prior to notification of cancellation are non-refundable. Parsons Design reserves the right to cancel or refuse service at any time at our own discretion.
Clients understand and acknowledge that Parsons Design makes no guarantee of a timeframe for completion of any project. Parsons Design endeavours to complete every project in a reasonable and timely manner. Due to the variable nature of every project, including the necessity for communication between parties for content and design approval, project complexity, content updates, financial considerations, and other extenuating circumstances, we deem it inappropriate to set hard deadlines on projects unless otherwise specified. Parsons Design will make every effort to communicate with clients and address any concerns you may have about project completion.
Unless explicitly stated in external documentation, Parsons Design reserves the right to use client websites and content in the course of marketing and promotion. This includes highlighting the clients through a client portfolio and using examples and pictures off client websites for advertising purposes.
Limitation of Liability
Under no circumstances shall Parsons Design, its employees, agents, directors, or affiliates be held liable to clients for any damages incurred. These include, without limitation, direct loss, indirect loss, incidental damages, loss of business or profits, damage to computers, systems or software, and any other consequential damages arising as a result of the use or inability to use Parsons Design services and content.
Parsons Design takes no responsibility for copyright infringement resulting from content or material that was submitted or otherwise provided by clients. Parsons Design retains the right to refuse any material that is knowingly copyrighted or trademarked unless sufficient evidence is demonstrated that permission has been granted to use such material. We reserve the right to refuse the submission of any content, regardless of legal ownership, at our sole discretion.
Parsons Design websites may include typographical, technical, or visual content errors. Parsons Design does not guarantee that website material is necessarily accurate, complete, or current. Parsons Design may make changes to website material at any given time without prior notice.
The aforementioned limitations apply only as far as the law permits. As some jurisdictions do not allow for limitations on consequential and incidental damages these limitations may not necessarily apply to you.
Neither party shall be held liable for failure or delay to fulfil these terms and conditions due to events beyond the reasonable control of the party. Force Majeure events must be external, unpredictable, and irresistible. Such events include, but are not limited to: war, terrorism, political upheaval, natural disasters, riots, insurrections, labour crises, hostilities, government sanctions, embargoes, and other Acts of God. Parties affected by such an event shall inform the other party as promptly as possible of the circumstances and existence of the issue and make every reasonable attempt to minimize the effects of the event as it relates to the relevant terms and conditions.
As a condition of using this website or Parsons Design services you agree that you will use this or any contracted website for lawful purposes only. Any violation of the law or of these terms and conditions requires the client to provide immediate notification to Parsons Design. In the case of such a violation, the client must provide every reasonable effort to promptly and effectively resolve the violation. Parsons Design reserves the right to suspend or terminate service to transgressing clients.
