Our Obligation
This service contract shall be binding only after payment of a 50% deposit. A deposit is deemed to have been paid when it has been received by our bank and reflected on our account.

In case we cannot fulfil an order due to unforeseeable consequences, we reserve the right to pass the order to other entities in the same line of business. In such situations, we will be informing the customer five (5) days before the scheduled delivery date, in which case the customer may opt to cancel the order and receive a full refund. If the customer allows us to pass the order to another service provider, our obligation and responsibility to the customer shall be deemed to have been extinguished, the deposit is passed on to the new contractor and we shall no longer be a party to the agreement between the customer and the new contractor.
