How the Design Service Works
Purchasing Opoplan Designs
If a customer decides to proceed to purchase or download one of the designs created for them by Opoplan, an order is deemed to have been placed for our Services (the purchase of various design products). The customer will receive an acknowledgment of the order, either directly online or by separate email. This acknowledgement constitutes an acceptance of the order and initiation of a contract between you and Opoplan. The design will subsequently be made available (delivered) to you in the product formats requested by you in the manner described above and within the timescale specified. Opoplan delivering the download link for the products you have ordered to you concludes the order process.
In some regions and/or circumstances, the design or certain design products are only available to SECs (subscribers end customers). If you are a DEC(non subscriber) and your design is not available for purchase due to this, we recommend you contact your local custom home builder and encourage them to subscribe to Opoplan when you will be able to create your own design (and work with the builder to complete it).
Opoplan reserve the right not to accept your order in the event, for example, that we are unable to obtain authorisation for your payment from our Payment Platform, or if you are procuring your design through a local construction professional who is a subscriber to Opoplan and their subscription or credits have expired, or for any other reason at our discretion.
