Project Order Cancellation Policy

Please submit any cancellation notes via our contact form , or call on our business phone at 773-213-7747.

Email cancellations must contain the following: First name, last name, company name, domain name, and email address. This information must be identical to the information originally submitted on your order. Please provide contact information so that we may contact you if we have questions in regards to canceling your order.

Every effort will be made to accommodate the cancellation of your order, providing your project has not been charged. In the event that a cancellation was submitted (via email or phone), and your project was started after, we will gladly refund the complete balance charged. However, if the cancellation was documented as received after the project was started, we will refund the project total total less hours developed to that point.

Once we start any project, there is a $75/month project management fee. This is typically included in our estimates and proposals, however, if the project is stalled or delayed by the client, this $75/fee goes into effect immediately and is retroactive from the last 'email' or written contact.

Project Freeze Policy

If you wish to place your project 'on hold' you must provide payment for all hours expended to the 'on hold' point and will will suspend work (and monthly project management fees) for this while it is frozen. However, any project stopped for more than three months will require a NEW estimate of work and another Deposit of payment to initiate work.

Warranty Policy

Troubleshooting or Customer Support Procedure
We suggest you contact our tech support team first by using our contact form. We will then troubleshoot the issue and inform you if the warranty is compliant or not.
If your website isn't showing up for you (but other web sites are, contact the hosting company FIRST to see if there's an issue with their server).

30-Day Warranty
All projects (unless specifically stated otherwise), carry an implied, industry-standard 30-Day warranty against defects due to programming logic or 'bugs'.
Warranty does not include any use of the designed/develop pages outside of the specified browsers (usually Internet Explorer and Firefox, current as of 2017). Any changes by the client to any web page on client's web site will negate our warranty as we are no longer responsible for that ccode or content.

Spelling Errors, Broken Links
Any spelling errors, broken links or unaligned text, images or videos on a web page will be fixed at NO COST if the following three (3) conditions are met:
1. The content differs from what the client has supplied
2. The client has requested that certain pages (files) be renamed or moved, thereby causing breaks with links to the originally named files
3. The client allows us up to 72 hours to correct the issue(s), after that, all changes are billable to the client.

Undefined Terms

If our proposal or estimate does NOT spell out or define an item or process, it is NOT included in our services. It is the client's responsibility to know what it is that they're looking for in a given project. If it is not listed in our contract or estimate or proposal, then it is not included as part of that estimate or invoice. It will be billed additional on an ala-carte basis. We only bill for the work we do and we try our best to meet your budget needs.
