Terms of Service

Credit

When your design is complete and has been installed on your site, you agree to keep the Design Junky link on your blog until you remove the design from your blog in its entirety. The link will be placed in the footer of the site to show where your design came from and will not interfere with your site.

Payment

Payment on all design work is due up front. Once a design project has been accepted and Design Junky is ready to begin work, an invoice will be sent to you via email. Payment must be paid in full before any work will be done on the site.

Copyright

Any graphics used in your site design must come from Design Junky, iStockphoto, a royalty free photo site such as stock.xchng or be an image you already own (either personally created, or obtained the copyright for).

Please do not use or change any of our images or code without our written permission. All designs are copyrighted to Design Junky.

Revisions

It is important that you are pleased with your design and as such we are happy to make a reasonable number of revisions free of charge until you are 100% satisfied with your design. However, if your revision requests become excessive (take longer than usual and cut into the design time of other clients) we will issue a warning. After the warning is issued, if any more revision requests are sent we will begin charging $50/hour for additional time spent.

Refunds

Due to the nature of blog design, I do not offer refunds on designs that I have started on. If you change your mind before I start your design, I will be happy to refund your payment minus the cost of any digi-scrap kits or iStock images, etc. I’ve purchased for your design and any PayPal or Google Checkout fees.

Portfolio

By accepting design work created by Design Junky, you agree to allow a screen shot of your design to be placed in our portfolio.

Hosting/Domain Name:

If your already has a domain name and a hosting service, access to the hosting service is required. If you do not have a domain name and hosting service, we currently use New Blog Hosting and you will be charged an extra $45 which will be paid in full to the hosting service. If you are looking to switch your hosting service or domain name, please let us know and we will discuss fees associated.

Refusal of Service

Design Junky reserves the right to refuse service to any client for any reason. We will not design any sites with pornographic, offensive, vulgar or nude content and we also reserve the right to determine what is and is not pornographic, offensive, or vulgar.
