3. Email will be the method of contact with regard to all communication. Although PK Green Design can be contacted by telephone, we will use email as our method of communication and therefore it is the Client's responsibility to inform us of any change in email address so we always have up to date email contact details. PK Green Design can not be held liable in any way relating to communication issues if we are not supplied a valid email address. PK Green Design will acknowledge all emails within 3 working days.

5. The deposit paid to PK Green Design covers the cost of design work carried out as well as any admin work and communication with PK Green Design. The deposit is non refundable.

If a Client does not make contact for 2 weeks we will make up to 5 attempts to contact the client by email using the email address specified when the client place their order.
