Commissions___________________

Definitions

Artist: The individual producing the Commission (“Alice Malloy Chang,” “Alice MC,”).

Client: The individual purchasing the Commission.

Commission: The form of service provided by the Artist to the Client per the Commission Agreement. “Commission,” “Art[work],” “Image[ry],” and “Project[s]” are used interchangeably herein and in Commission correspondence.

Commission Agreement: The discussion, documented via email (or where email is not available, via U.S. Postal Service), in which the Artist and Client agree to the subject matter and type of Commission to be produced, the Commission price, the point in time in which the Artist is expected to commence in Start of Work, and – if applicable – the Commission deadline, early termination circumstances, rush fees, and/or whether or not the Commission can be immediately displayed in the Artist’s portfolio. This Commission Agreement shall remain on record with the Artist, along with any other documents related to the Commission, for at least two years. Ultimately, the Commission Agreement will usually conclude with:

“This Agreement is the final, complete and exclusive agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes and merges all prior communications between Artist/Client with respect to such matters. No modification of, or amendment to, this Agreement – or any waiver of any rights under this Agreement – will be effective unless in writing and signed the by Artist.”

Start of Work: The point in time by which the Client has approved the Artist to start work on the Commission (e.g., Artist begins to create the Commission).

Profile(s): Online locations where the Commission may be displayed (e.g., “galleries,” such as AliceMC.com, Facebook and Twitter, TikTok, Instagram, Art.com, Tumblr.com, etc.). “Profile(s)” do not include any sites that display hateful or racist imagery, illegal activities, or sites known to display, reproduce, and/or sell works without crediting the Artist. Additionally, no Commission may be displayed without notifying the Artist first, or as agreed upon in the Commission Agreement.

Personal Space: Non-public, offline locations (e.g., home or office); i.e., no business involving the Commission is being conducted.

Public Space: Offline locations that do not fall under “Personal Space” above.

Commercial Purpose: Any image or project to be commissioned that does not fall under the type of use specified in these Terms of Service. New Terms of Service shall be developed and agreed upon in a Commercial Purpose Commission Agreement prior to Start of Work.

Commercial Purpose Commission Agreement: A Commission Agreement developed specifically for Commercial Purpose Commissions. A Commercial Purpose Commission Agreement requires separate Terms of Service, developed on a case-by-case basis.
