1.13 Edits Terms:
After preview, if you approve the HTML/CSS, you are more than welcome to provide changes that you need done in order for the project to be fully pixel perfect based on your PSD files. You will have 3 rounds of edits (for example: font styling, minor alignment changes, JS effects) and if you require a change in the design that might require extra efforts, we may have to charge an additional fee.
A round can be defined as a list of edits that we are going to complete. Once the first round is fully completed, if you need a few more changes you will be able to send a second round and a third round if needed.
The programmer will need a detailed list of changes (screenshots if possible) so we can provide a fast and efficient result.
This screenshot tool may be helpful: http://awesomescreenshot.com/
After the 3 rounds of edits are finalized you can ask for more changes, but this will be charged separately.
And if you require a change in the design that might require extra efforts, we may have to charge an additional fee based on our own criteria of hours needed to be billed (Normally around 15USD/hour).
If your project is CMS read below:
Edits on the CMS have the same flow as the HTML process, but they are only related to functionality (for example: change widgets, use a different plugins, the logic of the code) and not HTML/CSS because we will be using the HTML code that you previously approved.
If you don’t send feedback during the next 72 hours of your project completion, Codcow will consider the project approved by the client and will be able to refuse making any changes or fixes according with “3 rounds” policies.
Upon making payment for one of Codcow services you are hereby accepting this terms and services agreement.
