Deaf Child's mission: make music, bring people together, and support communities. Policies in action support what Deaf Child is about such as current projects as well as services.

Compliance: By interacting with this site, Deaf Child, and/or Deaf Child's services/products/events you agree to the policies that follow...

 

Payment of Deaf Child Offerings: Tickets for events may be purchased online or at the door.  Will not accept entry without payment. Payment for Deaf Child street team services at $250 or less is due before any work begins. Payment for street team services more than $250 can be paid half up front and half upon completion. Payment for Deaf Child project services and second half of the larger street team order is due within 7 regular calendar days of every invoice's issue, after which an extended deadline provides 30 more regular calendar days to pay amount due plus a late fee of 30% on each item invoiced. NO REFUNDS on work completed or tickets.


Delinquent Accounts: Should you pay later than 30 regular calendar days for services, the invoice converts to a delinquent account. All late fees remain charged to the invoice. A delinquent fee of $500 will be added per delinquent account as an additional expense with the late fee added after.


Consideration: Delinquent accounts will not be eligible to participate in any Deaf Child offerings until compensation as set forth in the terms of agreement, privacy policies, and security policies is received.
