Terms of Service
We’ll always do our best to fulfill your needs and meet your expectations, but it’s important to have things written down so that we both know what’s what, who should do what, and what will happen if something goes wrong. We have no desire to trick you into agreeing to something that you might later regret. What we do want is what’s best for both parties, now and in the future.
