Payment of Fees Full amount is due up front on estimated cost for all projects except web design. A down payment of half the total quote is required upfront before any work begins on a website. All further fees are to be paid immediately upon invoicing which takes place the 1st and 15th of every month. Continued work into the next pay period cannot be done until the past invoice is paid in full. For billed amounts under $10 an invoice will not be send until the amount is over $10. Web sites will not be made live or final products and files delivered until finaly payment is made.
Due to the custom nature of our services, no refunds will be given once work has begun.
Release of Files Finished full resolution files will be released to the client only after final payment has been made. Websites will be made live only after final payment.
Turn Around Time Our turnaround time varies, depending on the project and how quickly we receive feedback from you. However, we work hard to get initial design work and revisions to you within 7-10 business days of receiving your information.
Ownership All drawings, artwork, and designs remain the property of Cyclops Studios to show in printed or online portfolios for the length of the lifetime of the Designer. All "preliminary" ideas and concepts produced by the Designer remain the property of the Designer and may not be used by the Client without the permission of the Designer.

Please do not alter the layout, scale or overall feel of the design without written permission.
Termination. Either party may terminate this Agreement upon written notice to the other. Upon termination the Designer may retain any initial payment and the Client shall pay the Designer for all hours expended on the project up to the date of termination.
