Copyright

All content and graphics are protected by copyright laws.

Altering Design Work – CLIENT/USER may NOT alter, resize, or change ANY of the graphic/design work (including but not limited to; headers, buttons, logos, e-book covers, etc.) of AB without WRITTEN permission from AliBelle, LLC. We do not want our images altered for many reasons, the most important being that our name is on it and we want it to remain in the quality that WE designed it. Our reputation and excellence is VERY important.

If CLIENT/USER would like a resize, banner or button, or any alteration or addition to a design, simply let us know. We offer these services for a nominal fee.

NO other designer may modify, alter, claim credit, or use our work in a new design. Period.

Failure to comply with ALL copyright terms listed above and below is a direct violation of copyright laws. Please read Section 504(c)(2) (http://www.copyright.gov/title17/92chap5.html#504).

Payment

All payments are due before work will begin. We do NOT add clients to our schedule until payment is made. We will accept credit card payments through WePay. All payments must be CLEARED before work will begin.

Refunds

We work VERY hard to please each client. However, because of the nature of web design and the fact it is a service provided that requires much time and effort to accomplish, once the work has begun, NO refunds are provided. Period.

If the design process has not begun (meaning we have done NO work and spent NO time on your project) AND it is at LEAST two weeks away from your start date, you can request a refund, however, since you would already have taken up time on our schedule and limited other clients from taking your spot, your refund will not be 100%. We will take 25% from it as a cancellation fee. We will send your refund via snail mail. The refund, IF plausible will be issued within 90 days of approval.

Furthermore, there are…

NO refunds are provided once premade files are transferred or added to client’s site. Period.

NO refunds for Hosting OR Domain. Period.

If you purchase anything from us you agree to be BOUND by all of our policies INCLUDING our refund policy. Period.

Revisions for CUSTOM work

While we want to make our customers happy, we can not be held liable for any service that we provide for any reason. We will take the time to discuss your wishes and get it right the first time.

AB will do up to ONE revision for each image purchased. And, up to TWO revisions (within reason) for custom image design. Additional revisions require a fee depending on what it entails.

Blogs/Website Design come with up to TWO minor revisions. We will NOT revise the basic structure. Additional revisions cost more. We will inform you ahead of time what the cost would be.

Additionally, if we feel that we have done all that we can to make you, the client happy and there seems no reasonable way to provide you with what you desire, we reserve the right to stop the process. Period. No refunds will be given. The reason no refunds will be given is because we base our fees on the amount of time we expect a certain project to take. If we are refusing to continue working with you, you can be ASSURED that we have already exceeded the time you paid for and have EARNED what was paid.

Keep in mind, we have patience, integrity and work VERY hard to make our clients happy. You are free to read our many testimonials, and visit the sites of our past clients, and even contact them and personally ask them what they think.

Completion of Work

Once client has stated they are happy with a design, we consider that project or part of the project to be completed. PSD files are deleted, files are deleted and job is complete. If after client has approved work, they change their mind and want a revision, it is too late. We delete pretty much immediately. IF (highly unlikely though) we DO still have it, we will consider an additional revision. It is a case by case decision and additional fees may apply. Note: PSD files COME with all logo and header design. Including the header of blog/site designs. However, we are not responsible for lost PSD files. Once we send them to you, we delete them.

Again, once client has stated they are happy with design, all files pertaining to project are deleted. Period.

Blog/site Designs: Once we upload your design and we see that it is looking proper and the way it did on test site, we are finished. We will give minimal help and advice as we can for 30 days after upload. However, it is up to the client to learn blogging formats and other details pertaining to their blogs. We design, not maintain or train UNLESS that service is purchased. We will, however, send the client links to support and tutorial sites that deal with the blogging platform they are using.

Twitter pages, all other images/services: Once file is sent to client, project is complete. Or, if we uploaded file to Clients Twitter account, once upload is complete, we are done with project. No further support is provided UNLESS that service is purchased.

Images

We use royalty free images from canstock, istock, Dreamstime, and others for some of our work. You agree to keep a link on your site giving credit to where the image came from UNLESS you purchased a different license OR you have rights to the image. Failure to do so could cause you major legal trouble from the image designer. You should also know that these images may be elsewhere on the web. We will not create themes with the same images. However, the images are available for others to use. If you wish to have an image that is exclusive, let us know and we will tell you what the additional cost would be to create one. Fees for custom EXCLUSIVE images range from $750 and up.
