TERMS & CONDITIONS 2017
I. Deposits: Client’s session will be deemed a no show, 30 minutes after the scheduled start time with no communication from the client. All sessions are tentatively booked until a deposit is received and can be rescheduled until payment is confirmed. Deposits are non refundable. All sessions begin at the scheduled time.
II. Bulk Hour Projects & Payment Plans: Billing dates will be stipulated in a separate document and the Client will not be exempt from the terms of this agreement. Bulk Hour Projects are billed at a reduced rate due to the predictability of scheduling and payments. A service fee of $50 is payable on any outstanding balance within 48 Hrs of the due date. A recurring fee of $25 will be added to the balance each week from the date of original service fee until paid in full. Bulk Hour Projects are based on an hourly estimate of your project. Unused hours may be applied toward future work. 100% of the Client's hours must be used within 60 days of final billing date, unless otherwise stipulated.
III. Cancellation & Rescheduling Policy: If you wish to change your appointment time or length please do not cancel your session but call us and arrange the schedule change ahead of time. Rescheduling less than 24 hours in advance will result in the loss of 50% of the Client's booked time.
In the event of cancellation of this project, ownership of all copyrights and the original work shall be retained by Hink Creations, and a cancellation fee for work completed, and expenses already incurred, shall be paid by the Client. Cancellation will result in the loss of a discounted rate on all hours.
