1. PRODUCT OWNERSHIP
The website, designs, graphics and any programming code remain the property of Quadnotion until all outstanding accounts are paid in full or unless mutually agreed upon.

We reserve the right to refuse any material of a copyrighted nature unless adequate proof is given of permission to use such material. In case of any disputes, Quadnotion shall not be accountable for such issues.
3. DESIGN PHASE
We take all efforts to meet your expectations about the design in the submission of the first design itself. However, in case you are not satisfied with the design, we are open to making two more attempts to meet your expectations. But in the unlikely event of no mutual consent being achieved for three designs altogether, and another round of re-designing is requested by the client, Quadnotion is entitled to terminate the project by either refunding the amount or by reserving the amount as credit towards any future services, which could be availed by the client at any time of their choice.
4. AVAILIBILITY OF MATERIALS
The client agrees to make available as soon as is reasonably possible to Quadnotion all materials required for completing the project to the agreed standard and within the set deadline. Quadnotion will not be liable for costs incurred, compensation or loss of earnings due to the failure to meet agreed deadlines. Quadnotion will not be liable or become involved in any disputes between the site owner and their clients and cannot be held responsible for any wrongdoing on the part of a site owner.
5. INITIAL PAYMENT PROCEDURE
A deposit of 50% of the total amount of the quoted price is required with any project before any design work shall be carried out.
6. PAYMENT TERMS ON COMPLETION
Once the proposal is accepted and we engage ourselves with the project or a project has been completed, the balance of payment is then due in accordance with our payment terms. There are no exceptions to this, i.e if the client decides to drop the project, as they have commissioned the work and paid a deposit they are still obliged to pay for the work that has been done. Non-payment will result in legal action being taken if necessary.
Payment once remitted shall not be returned at any cost unless Quadnotion agrees upon.
