DIGITAL NEGATIVE FILES
All digital negatives (computer files) remain the property of the photographer. All photoshoot packages include a copy of the edited digital negatives to the client(s) for their own non-commercial use.
Should the digital negative files be lost, damaged, or destroyed for reasons beyond control, the photographer’s liability shall be limited to a full refund of any fees paid, but shall not include a refund for any goods already received.
CREATIVE LICENSE, COVERAGE, AND REPRODUCTION
Commercial use of images is prohibited. Reproducing photos for personal use is permitted.
Online images will not be editable. Screengrab downloads, the printing of digital images, and the scanning of prints for digital imagery use are illegal and punishable by law.
Thumb drives provided to the Client are 5×7 watermarked images and are un-editable. Images are for display on social networking sites, email, and online forums only. Watermarks are not to be cropped out. If the Client desires formatting of pictures at varied sizes other than 5×7 please inform Topsail Fun Photography.
CANCELATIONS AND REFUNDS
You may cancel your appointment in your Topsail Fun Photography account for a full refund up to 24 hours before your photoshoot. If you cancel close to the 24-hour window, please call us at (251) 586-2343 to confirm we have received your cancellation. A no-call no-show appointment will automatically forfeit $100 from your service fee; the remaining balance will be refunded per Stripe’s policy.
We process payments through Stripe, which will issue refunds for cancellations within 5-10 business days. Once you request a refund it cannot be canceled. If you cancel shortly after the original charge, your refund will appear in the form of a reversal. The original charge will be dropped from your statement and a credit will not be issued.
In the very unlikely event of cancelation by the photographer or of total photographic failure, liability shall be limited to a full refund of any fees paid.
The photographer will endeavor to put the client(s) in touch with another photographer in the event they are unable to attend on the date due to any cause beyond their reasonable control e.g. sudden illness, injury, the victim of crime, flooding, traffic conditions, vehicle breakdown, etc.

Any directions issued to clients, their guests, or employees during a photographic shoot are deemed to be at said person’s own risk. The photographer cannot be held responsible for any personal accidents during a photographic shoot.
