Refunds and Terminations

The services we provide do not cover all websites or web development requirements. Therefore, your order maybe cancelled if we decide it contains any of the services we do not offer and we will provide a refund for this cancellation entirely at our discretion.

 

We use some of the best tools in the industry and we consider our services and products top-notch; however, we appreciate the fact that not everyone will be satisfied with their purchases all the time. If any unresolvable disatisfaction arise as a result of the use of our services, we will gladly consider granting you a refund.

 

All our layouts, layout packs, and website templates ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. You are therefore advised to carefully consider the purchase of such products, carefully examine the demos, screenshots, and literature provided to be thoroughly convinced whether or not to proceed with such purchases. We will not entertain any requests for refunds on these items mentioned. Your account may be closed if you resort to inappropriate correspondence.

 

If a client purchases any of our web development or web design consultations and is dissatisfied with the results, we will refund the client’s purchase solely at our discretion and subject to the following terms:

  • Our web development, web design, and web building consultations usually take a relatively short time, therefore, we will provide required refunds only when the client has expressed a wish to terminate the development within 14 days of purchasing the consultation for consultations stipulated to take up to 1 month and within 2 days of purchasing the consultation for consultations stipulated to take up to 4 days. A full refund will be granted. We will not entertain any requests for refunds after the website is built or after the stipulated window for requesting for purchases.
  • Our clients are not permitted to access their websites as admins while we build their sites. This is to ensure clients do not tamper with the work and break stuff on their sites thereby slowing down the development process. Our design team will create subscriber accounts for the clients to view their sites and such clients can also access the site publicly. Our design team may use “coming soon” templates to shield their development from the public eye solely at their discretion. Nonetheless, our design team will make the sites publicly accessible after the first few days of development depending on the kind of website being built. Any client that gains admin access or requests for admin access to their site during development may void their chances of getting a refund solely at our discretion.
  • If we notice that any client is fraudulent or/and makes regular bogus purchases on our site to seek refunds later, we reserve the rights to close down such a client’s account(s), and we WILL NOT grant a refund to such a fraudulent client.
  • We will only grant a refund after the initial purchase of any individual product or service. If a client purchases the product or service again after we have granted that client a refund for that particular product or service once and seeks a refund after purchasing it again, we will not grant the client a refund.

 

For all refunds, clients are to send a detailed email to support@sapphirin.com and allow 3 business days for the refund to be completed due to unavoidable holidays and our work week. Such emails should include the client’s name, email address used to create a Sapphirin account, clients username, a description of why the client wants to cancel the purchase. These details are strictly for documentation purposes and are used to improve our service. Unfortunately, so as not to confuse the next developer that will work on your site, when you cancel your purchase and/or seek a refund, we will pull down all our tools from your site before handing over the site to you. You are to allow 3 business days for proper processing of your refund request, follow up correspondence, and handing over your site.
