FAQ and Policies
Refund & Cancellation
Payments for custom web design and web development projects are made to us in increments as a courtesy to the client. Once a payment or deposit is made, it is non-refundable. If a project is canceled or postponed, all monies paid are retained by Wide Web Vision as outlined in our contracts and if applicable, a fee for all work completed beyond what was already paid for shall be paid by the client.
Domain Transfers & Website Hosting Transfers
We charge a nominal fee of $150 to transfer domains to other domain registers. This costing includes domain transfer of files.
Print & Graphic Design
Design costs paid to Wide Web Vision are non-refundable. Design & print costs paid to Wide Web Vision are refundable only if printing error is determined to be our fault. We are not liable for damages incurred due to printing and graphic errors or problems from our files if full specifications from your printer were not provided or were incorrect/inaccurate, or if you supply the wrong files to your printer. Design reviews are completed design works and are at all times signed off by the client before payment is received.
If we receive a chargeback or payment dispute (i.e. Interac Payment, Email Transfer Payment, PayPal Dispute or direct deposit) from a credit card company or bank, your service and/or project will be suspended without notice. A $100 chargeback fee (issued to recover fees passed on to us by the credit company), plus any outstanding balances accrued as a result of the chargeback(s) must be paid in full before service is restored, files delivered, or any further work is done. Instead of issuing a chargeback, contact us to address any billing issues. Requesting a chargeback or opening a PayPal dispute for a valid charge from us is fraud, and is never an appropriate or legal means of obtaining a refund. Please read and make sure you fully understand our refund policy prior to making a payment.
