Payment terms: In the case of projects exceeding $5,000 USD, clients have the option to submit a 25% deposit of the total project cost, with the remaining amount due upon project completion. Initially, clients will receive low-resolution watermarked images and videos, which will be replaced with full-size, un-watermarked versions upon receipt of the balance. It is important to note that if both parties agree in writing, alternative payment terms may supersede this section.
Non-Payment: In the event that payment for our services is not received, we reserve the right to initiate legal action to collect the outstanding payments. Furthermore, we may request the removal of any Content that we have delivered to you but remains unpaid. To safeguard our rights, we may also seek injunctive relief to prevent the unpaid Content from being published, reproduced, or displayed.
