Once once digital files have been uploaded and completed the final balance of payment is then due. There are no exceptions to this, i.e If the client decides they no longer want the work, as they have commissioned the work and paid a deposit they are still obliged to pay for the work that has been done. Non payment will result in legal action being taken if necessary. Once full payment is received for digital work, it is assumed that the project has been completed to the clients satisfaction and no refunds can be offered.

 

Payment of Accounts

A deposit of 50% is required with any standard project before any concept/production work will be carried out. This figure is non-refundable. This deposit is required from any new client before any work is carried out. Work on the project will not commence until this amount has cleared. It is Filma King policy that any outstanding accounts for work carried out by Filma King or its affiliates are required to be paid in full, no later than 14 days from the date of the invoice unless by prior arrangement with Filma King.

Once a deposit is paid and work completed the client is obliged to pay the balance of payment in full. We will contact clients via email and telephone to remind them of such payments if they are not received when due. Accounts which remain outstanding for 14 days after the date of invoice, will incur an extra charge of 0.2% per day of the outstanding amount plus a £10 administration fee.

If accounts are not settled or Filma King have not been contacted regarding the delay, access to the hosted video, video files may be denied, we will then pass such cases to the Small Claims Court to pursue payment, non payment can result in county court judgements (ccj’s) being added to the clients credit rating.

Following consistent non payment of an invoice a Solicitor will contact the client in question, with a view to taking the matter further and if need be to seek payment through legal procedures, and if necessary court summons.

Returned cheques will incur an additional fee of £50.00 per returned cheque.

Credits

The client agrees to allow Filma King to place a small credit on video content, displays, advertisements and/or a link to Filma King own website on the client’s video. This will usually be in the form of a small logo or shot video ident featured at the end of the client’s video.

Your Privacy

We do not share or sell any of your details with third party companies, without your express permission and we will only email you or contact you about work related matters.

Cancellation

Cancellation of orders may be made initially by telephone contact, or e-mail, however, following this, Filma King will need formal notification in writing to its postal address. The client will then be invoiced for all work completed over and above the non-refundable deposit that will have been made at the time of first ordering. The balance of monies due must be paid within 14 days. Please note: any cancellation which is not formally confirmed in writing and received by Filma King within 14 days of such instruction being issued, will be liable for the full quoted cost of the project.

Complaints Procedure

Anyone who experiences a problem with their video provided by Filma King should raise the matter directly giving sufficient information to locate the material (such as an url) and clearly outlining the grounds for complaint. Filma King will approach the individual responsible for the material in question with a view to resolving the matter to the satisfaction of the complainant
