Use – Your subscription and any addons will automatically renew at the end of the applicable subscription period.  Growthspurt works on one video at a time.  Turnaround times are not guaranteed, but a majority of our customers get a first draft within 1-2 business days.

Service Description – Your team will only be assigned once you have submitted your first Video Request and completed a customer onboarding session. Please do this as soon as possible to avoid any delays since your account will remain unassigned but active until your first Video Request is received. We will follow up but the onus is on you to submit the Video Request.

A Project Manager and Video Editor will be assigned to your account. They will be the team who will manage and work on your projects. To maximize efficiencies in the workflow and reduce any misunderstanding the team will work on your projects one at a time. Only once the current active project is tagged as “Completed” will the Video Editor start working on the next queued project.

Growthspurt uses Adobe Premiere Pro as our editing software of choice. You will therefore need to provide any assets you wish the Video Editor to use to be compatible with Adobe Premiere Pro. If you require working files we can only provide Adobe Premiere Pro project files.

Growthspurt’s production resources operate in the PHT (GMT+8) time zone with work hours being from 9:00-18:00. Your team will work on your projects during your plan’s allotted work schedule.

Retainer – When signing up to Growthspurt you are signing up for a retainer package that enables you to retain the same Project Manager and Video Editor resources on the account. The cost of the retainer is the total cost including the technology, tools, systems, and processes required by Growthspurt to provide the service. The retainer is not based on days or hours and no billing adjustment or refund is due for resource time off.

Cancellation – You may cancel your subscription with Growthspurt at any time before the end of the then-current subscription period.  To cancel your subcription please visit:https://www.growthspurt.com/cancel

Upon cancellation, you will continue to have access to the Growthspurt services and your files through the end of your paid billing term. Access to your account files requires an active subscription. Cancelled accounts will not have access to their files once their billing term has ended.

Money Back Guarantee – If the customer is using Growthspurt for the first time they are entitled to an action-based, 14 day risk free period to evaluate the quality of the service. This period begins on your date of purchase unless stated otherwise.  Provided you submit and approve two video projects, fill out a customer onboarding form, and complete a customer onboarding session, you can either fill out a cancel form or additionally request a refund by emailing [email protected].  Charges and refunds are dependent on the exchange rate between the US Dollar and your currency for the day.

Payment and Refunds – Payments are non-refundable and we do not provide refunds or credits for any partial subscription periods except as provided for in the Money Back Guarantee.  You further agree that, upon registering for the services through the Site, you authorize Growthspurt to charge your method of payment (e.g. credit card) for the fee on each anniversary of your registration date, based upon your billing frequency (e.g. monthly, quarterly, annually). Your account and access to the services provided via the site may be suspended in the event of non-payment of applicable fees. You represent and warrant to Growthspurt that such payment information is accurate and that you are authorized to use the payment instrument.

You, the client are responsible to use Growthspurt after payment.

Limitations and Abuse of Service – Growthspurt is designed for the reasonable use of a single individual. We are not meant to replace a full-time video editor so use your common sense!  If we find that you are not in alignment with our model, sharing accounts/logins, violate our core values, or are abusing our services or team in any way, including using our services for illegal or adult/pornographic materials, we reserve the right to cancel your account.

Growthspurt does not accept requests outside of its scope of services and therefore reserves the right to decline or cancel a project which has a running time longer than what their plan includes and falls under any of the following categories: wedding videos, full podcast episodes, projects with VFX, animations, special effects, motion graphics, and the like.

Work and delivery output – While we can accept unlimited requests and revisions, our output volume depends on many factors, namely depending on the total request volume and complexity.
