We will work with you to make you satisfied with our work. However, if a refund is requested and granted, all property created by ParadiseDesign including graphics, content, and code, will remain the property of ParadiseDesign.
A refund will not take effect in any of the following events:
You have approved your site design, logo design, you have approved the start of development, or your site has been fully developed. If a project is cancelled or postponed, all monies paid are retained by ParadiseDesign and if applicable, a fee for all work completed beyond what was already paid for shall be paid by the client.
Payments for Search Engine Optimization, Internet Marketing and Social Media Optimization services are nonrefundable, and ParadiseDesign does not issue pro rata refunds for fees paid in advance. Once a payment or deposit is made, it is non-refundable. All Setup fees are nonrefundable as it is applied to costs immediately incurred by ParadiseDesign in initiating services.

If you do not communicate with ParadiseDesign for more than 30 days following the submission of logo design, web design, or web development.
Client fails to produce needed materials, imagery, or content agreed upon prior to starting project.
If we receive a chargeback or payment dispute (i.e. Square Dispute) from a credit card company or bank, your service and/or project will be suspended without notice. A $50 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, please 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.
Unless otherwise provided, you agree that until and unless you notify ParadiseDesign of your desire to cancel the Services, you will be billed on an automatically recurring basis to prevent any disruption to your Services, using your credit card or other billing information on file with us.
Payments for past months of web hosting are non-refundable. Hosting accounts are set up at the time of order and are allotted a specific amount of server resources, according to the plan purchased. If client did not make use of the account, payment for services is still due. Hosting accounts are not canceled until notice is received from the client in writing, or until 14 days after due date of payment not received. If client paid for hosting account for 6 or 12 months ahead and cancels service before plan expiration date, a refund may be given for the months not yet elapsed. If client received free products and/or services with their hosting plan purchase, the value of the free services will be deducted from the refund amount.
Any invoice that is outstanding for more than fourteen (14) days may result in the suspension or termination of Services. Access to the account will not be restored until payment has been received. If you fail to pay the fees as specified herein, ParadiseDesign may suspend or terminate your account and pursue the collection costs incurred by ParadiseDesign, including without limitation, any arbitration and legal fees, and reasonable attorneys’ fees.
