Monthly/Yearly payments will become active on the date that the website goes live.

Failure to make the payment will result in the feature becoming inactive on the website and will cease working until payments have been made. Failure to pay after 30 days will result in the feature being permanently terminated and the payment agreement between Talisman Webs and the client also being terminated.

Anything after the project has gone live and has been completed is non-refundable.

  1. Client Review

All projects will be reviewed by the client before going live. Any changes the client wishes to make to the website can be done easily by contacting Talisman Webs.
