TERMS & CONDITIONS
Reading this form and submitting a request is a legal contract between Selkkie Designs and the client. The information entered by the client is a legally binding signature of everything contained within this agreement.
Client will proceed to pay after their request is done. Before every project starts, Selkkie Designs will aproximate a general price for the project (this price might be different from the final price, the final price could be lower or higher). In the final price will be included: all hours of work provided by Selkkie Designs and the price of the resources used to create the designs. If needed, Selkkie Designs might ask the client to provide a part of the payment beforehand. This part of the payment will represent the money needed to acquire the licenses for the resources that will be used to create the design. This part of the payment will be deducted from the final price. However, client can provide themselves the resources needed to complete the design, but only if these resources are licensed.
CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS
Any cancellations made by the client before Selkkie Designs starts working on the project required are free of charge.
Any cancellations made by the client after Selkkie Designs started working on the project required will be charged with the price equivalent to the hours of work already provided by the designer and the price of the resources already purchased (if that is the case). If the client was asked to provide a part of the payment beforehand for the purpose of acquiring the resources needed to make the design, client will get a refound of that part of the payment only if the resources haven't been yet acquired. If the resources were aquired however (with client's approval), the client is not entitled to a refound. Need of resources refound can be avoided if the client provides the resources themselves.
If the client asks for a premade (and/or add-ons), the client will have to pay a compensation of 50% of the price of the entire project if the client wishes to cancel or postpone the project in case. If the client canceled the project, the premade will be brought to the original state and put up again for sale. If the client wished to postpone the project, the files will be put on hold and the project will restart at the date the client and the designer agreed upon.
There are no refunds for pre-made book covers, though each one upon being bought will be considered exclusive towards each client. If the client purchesed a premade book cover that happens to not meet their needed requirements , the client can reach Selkkie Designs for the possibility of relocating the premade cover or additional modifications. If the client and Selkkie Designs reach an agrement and the client is allowed to relocate the cover, that cover will only be relocated to someone else for the SAME price the initial client has payed for it.
The relocation process will be handeled by the original client.

1. Text (change of title/author name/subtitles/blurb/etc);
2. Fonts and text styles or text placement;
3. Small changes such as: hair or eye color/magic color/body marks/tattoos, etc.
4. Resizings for online use or printing.
