I hereby agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions with Master Mind Productions, Inc dba Pixel Plow (“Pixel Plow”)
I hereby acknowledge that I, “Client”, am authorized to create a Pixel Plow account, that I am authorized to provide payment to Pixel Plow, and that I am authorized to upload content to Pixel Plow for rendering.
By accessing Pixel Plow, downloading its programs, or uploading content to be rendered, Client agrees to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, all applicable laws and regulations, and agrees that the Client is responsible for compliance with any applicable local laws. If any user does not agree with any of these terms, they are prohibited from using or accessing Pixel Plow. The materials contained in this web site and in Pixel Plow software are subject to intellectual property law are protected by applicable copyright and trademark law.
Non-Disclosure. Pixel Plow understands and acknowledges that Clients will submit confidential information to Pixel Plow for rendering, therefore Pixel Plow will hold all Client submitted data and projects in confidence, and will not copy, use, or share Client data with any person or entity outside of Pixel Plow and its employees without the express written authorization of the Client. Pixel Plow will not store Client’s complete render projects from the Client after the render job has been completed and delivered back to the Client or cancelled by the Client.
Client acknowledges that by sharing their Pixel Plow account name or password, Agent GUID, or other account information provided by Pixel Plow, Client has authorized those additional people or entities to submit projects to Pixel Plow, and Client will be charged for those projects. Client acknowledges that these additional people and/or entities are their agents and are bound by these Terms and Conditions.
Client agrees to allow Pixel Plow to charge its credit card for all jobs submitted for rendering, subject to our pricing policy. Client’s credit card information will be stored by Pixel Plow for convenience in processing future transactions. Pixel Plow is authorized to charge a Client, according to the policy, for any GHz-hours completed by Pixel Plow regardless of completion of the total job or early cancellation by the Client.
Client will review all jobs and orders prior to submission, and will be charged for all GHz-hours used, according to the Pricing Policy, for all jobs, even if the data submitted by the Client is incomplete, improperly submitted, or corrupted. By submitting content, a user acknowledges that they are a Client or are an authorized agent of a Client, that they are authorized to submit the project to Pixel Plow for rendering, and that they are authorized to give Pixel Plow permission to charge the Client.
Client may terminate a render job after it has been submitted to Pixel Plow, but Client will be charged for all jobs, even if the job is terminated prior to completion. Client will only be charged for actual GHz-hours spent rendering the project if the job is terminated before completion.
If the Client chooses to use the budget feature on submission of a job, Pixel Plow will attempt to suspend rendering when it calculates that the costs of rendering the project will surpass the budget given by the Client. Client will be notified of the suspension of the render project by email and will need to give Pixel Plow authorization to continue the project, or the project will not be completed, and the Client will be billed for the GHz-hours used. Pixel Plow does not guarantee that it will be able to calculate the total cost of a render project and reconcile it to the budgeted amount prior to the costs of the render project exceeding the budgeted amount.
Pixel Plow shall not be responsible for any of its Client’s project deadlines or timelines that are not met. Pixel Plow will not guarantee delivery of a completed render job on any timeline or at any specific rendering speed.
