Design Services Refund Policy
We undertake various Design & Branding Projects from time to time for various clients around the world.
No refunds will be made with regards to any payment made after the design has been approved by the client. In the case that the design does not meet the expectations of our client even after rounds of refining of the design that the client requires, we will refund a part of the down payment made for such designs. This is true only if the client knows exactly what the design of the website should be and was equally clear in expressing their requirement.
Our designers work diligently in order to realize the concepts efficiently even when our clients are not sure of the design they require. No refund will be made for vague requests resulting in designs that do not meet with our client’s expectations.
We will consider special refund request of our clients and will evaluate the percentage of refund for each case separately. Situations where the client is not happy with the concepts that were presented to them even after extended deliberations with the client and where the client was clear about what they were looking for, theJoshStudio will refund part of the money that was paid by the client while placing the order. The percentage of refund will be decided by theJoshStudio and this would vary according to project difficulty, person hours spend on the designs, etc.
Clients who change the requirements mid way through the implementation of a project will be billed for the hours spend on the previous defunct concept. No refund will be done for the payments for the order in this case. Moreover the client will send a new billing rate based on the complexity of the new concept. We advice our client’s to avoid these situations. Designers working in theJoshStudio maintain their commitment to bring to life even vague ideas of our clients.
3D animation orders require an advance payment. In the case of client’s dissatisfaction with our designs despite communicating their requirements accurately, refunds will be provided for payments made for the order in discussion. This condition hold value only if the project is less than 50% complete. Any claims for refunds otherwise will not be entertained.
Cases where the client are not clear or have just vague ideas about their requirements, no refund will be granted even if client is not happy with the final product.
For all other projects that theJoshStudio undertake and have not been separately mentioned in the refund policy, refunds on down payment will be provided based on the project. theJoshStudio will have sole discretion on whether the client is refunded for orders placed and the percentage that’s refunded.
Any claim to negate credit card payment will investigated and the amount refunded if found valid. Any fraudulent claim will result in legal action being sorted against the offending individual or company and the case will be reported to credit card services which would harm the offender’s credit history.
