If additional Project Assets are uploaded during the twenty-four (24) hours following the briefing call, the delivery time starts running at the time you receive the upload confirmation of your files containing the additional Project Assets. Any failure by the Client to provide such additional Project Assets during the indicated period will cause delays in the delivery time. The revision time delivery begins after you share the complete feedback with our team. The complexity and extent of the requested changes could affect the delivery time of the revisions, our team will inform you if that is the case. The chatbot needs are defined by the details filled in the upload form after purchase, the Project Assets you have provided and our briefing call. Once you receive the first version we can work on dialogue changes, minor flow adjustments, image selection and other related tweaks. Revisions do not include the incorporation of any new ideas or major flow adjustments. The Client’s point of contact (as established in section XII.) will be in charge of requesting any changes and approving the project deliverables. If the point of contact is changed by the Client during the Project, the new contact point will only be allowed to request the changes detailed above. Chatbot Malaysia shall not be responsible for any creative differences between the Client’s team and therefore will have no obligation to adjust or make changes to the project deliverables due to the Client changing its point of contact. After the first chatbot version is sent, you will have up to 2 weeks to respond with feedback, once that time has passed the project will be placed on hold, will no longer be available for any future revisions and will be considered as accepted by you. As part of the Services, the team will create in the YesHello platform Custom Fields in the 'Settings' module, surveys in the 'Surveys' module, upload files into the 'Files' module, create automations in the 'Automations' module, send team member invitation emails, connect the agreed upon channels (ie. WhatsApp, Messenger, Web chat, Telegram, etc.), connect WhatsApp API to one WhatsApp number. Once the final draft is delivered the project is labeled as completed and no new edits are available under that request. Chatbot purchases will only be delivered on a valid YesHello account as YesHello chatbots. Our team will identify the deadlines indicated by you at the time of purchase and work to ensure that the deliverables are submitted on time. Any failure by you to provide all the necessary Project Assets will affect the date by which any potential files will be delivered. 7- Our Team's Schedule Our working hours are Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Malaysia Time. If the purchase is made outside of our office hours the time starts running the next business day at 9:00am Malaysia Time. However, our team needs to have all the chatbot assets in order to begin, if after filling the upload form you still need to share extra files with us the delivery time will start once our tech team receive said files. This delivery time is for the first draft of the chatbot build, not for the final version. The delivery of the final version will be as detailed in the previous section. Our Services include email and messaging communications only, no design calls are scheduled as part of the Services, except for the briefing call and the follow-up call (the follow-up call will be schedule only if our team considers it necessary to clarify any doubts).
