Terms and Conditions.
By accessing this website and submitting the ‘Contract Setup & Client Qualification Form,’ you (‘User’ or ‘Undersigned’) hereby irrevocably agree to, and will indemnify and hold harmless Brand Babylon (‘Company’), that the Company’s singular obligation in return for a non-refundable payment of Seventy-Five U.S. Dollars ($75.00 USD) is to generate and transmit a Contract Agreement to the email or contact information provided by the User in the submitted form. You expressly acknowledge, consent to, and agree that the $75.00 USD fee solely covers the cost and effort for the generation and delivery of said Contract Agreement and nothing else.
Furthermore, you agree that any reversal, chargeback, or dispute of the $75.00 USD payment through your credit card company, bank, or any other financial institution is explicitly unauthorized and constitutes fraudulent activity and an illegal act, thereby exposing you to potential legal action, including but not limited to, civil and criminal penalties under applicable laws and regulations.
You shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Brand Babylon against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, deficiencies, claims, actions, judgments, settlements, interest, awards, penalties, fines, costs, or expenses of whatever kind, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising out of or relating to any unauthorized or illegal reversal or dispute of said payment.
Payment of a Contract Setup and/or Client Account Initialization Fee (hereinafter ‘Initialization Fee’) is mandated for all prospective clients as part of the ‘Contract Setup & Client Qualification Form.’ This fee is non-refundable and amounts to Seventy-Five U.S. Dollars ($75.00 USD). Please note that this fee is not an additional charge but will be credited towards the final agreed-upon cost of your project.
Example: Should we finalize your project cost at $10,000 USD, the Initialization Fee will be applied as a credit, reducing your final invoice to $9,925 USD.
Rationale for Initialization Fee
Resource Allocation: Brand Babylon commits significant resources, including but not limited to, personnel time, operational bandwidth, and sometimes intellectual ingenuity to the preliminary stages of client account setup. This process detracts from our capacity to service existing clients and genuine prospects. The Initialization Fee ensures that we allocate our resources judiciously to clients who are fully committed to progressing with Brand Babylon.
Client Commitment: The payment of the Initialization Fee is a demonstrable indicator of a client’s seriousness and readiness to engage in a project with Brand Babylon. Given that initiating a new client account involves a considerable investment of time for consultation, document preparation, and communication, the fee serves as a mutually beneficial commitment device. It confirms your readiness to proceed while assuring that Brand Babylon invests its finite resources into genuinely committed prospective clients.
By paying this Initialization Fee, you are acknowledging and agreeing to the terms outlined herein, and further indemnify Brand Babylon against any reversals, chargebacks, or unauthorized disputes relating to this payment under ‘Payment Integrity Guidelines.
By accessing this website and submitting the ‘Contract Setup & Client Qualification Form,’ you (‘User’ or ‘Undersigned’) hereby acknowledge and agree as follows:

This is to ensure effective utilization of the limited and valuable resources deployed by Brand Babylon in the client onboarding process.
