11. Fair Go Policy
Being an Australia Business, we believe in everyone having a "Fair Go".

If you, "the client" have paid your deposit and work has commenced, additional charges may be added to the quotation if the project is delayed by more than 2 weeks due to any reasons by yourself. This includes but not limited to: Delays responding to communications, unforeseen circumstances or anything that might cause a delay.
