Scheduling of Projects - Unless otherwise agreed, projects will only be loaded on to the Replacement Studios work schedule once requested deposit payments have been received. Where payments are not received by the requested due date, labour allocation will be passed to other tasks and reassignment of previously agreed project time will be required. Replacement Studios will not be held responsible for any project delays that may arise as a result of delayed payment.
Project Suspension/Cancellation - Replacement Studios reserve the right to suspend/cancel any project should the client interfere with excessive micromanaging and/or demonstrate a continued lack of trust and/or display an inability to move forward. Where a project is cancelled either by the client or Replacement Studios for any reason, payments made to that point are non refundable. It is implicit within these conditions that where a project is cancelled, the client will accept and pay a final invoice to cover any and all works completed to that point, less any payments already made. The determination of costs and any rebates are entirely at the discretion of Replacement Studios. Replacement Studios will always attempt to remedy any situation by negotiation and fair notice will be given prior to resorting to project suspension or termination. In the unlikely event of suspension, work completed to the point of payment are the intellectual property of the client and as such Replacement Studios undertakes to supply all files to the client upon receipt of any payments due.
