Terms and Conditions
BOOKING: For all photography sessions, a non-refundable session retainer is required to book and hold the contract price and date for your session and serves as a cancellation fee. However, the fee can be credited towards a future session upon Clapsnap Studio's approval. All remaining balances are due at the time of the session. You can break this up into multiple payments however you see fit.
EXCLUSIVITY: Clapsnap Studio shall be the only hired photographer for the session. Family members and friends are permitted to take photos. However, Clapsnap Studio is not to be held responsible for images missed due to family or friend interference.
COPYRIGHT: Clapsnap Studio retains copyright in all images created and will have the right to make reproductions for general marketing and advertising purposes, such as portfolio samples, self-promotion, and professional competitions. Posting on any social media platform owned by Clapsnap Studio is upon discretion, unless otherwise requested confidentiality by the Client. The Client agrees to not make copies for sale or use the images for any competition or commercial use, without prior agreement with Clapsnap Studio. Once services are paid in full, Clapsnap Studio allows the Client to make copies, prints and other reproductions for personal (non-commercial) use and distribution. Posting photographs online by the Client (i.e. Facebook, blog or any other online channels) are allowed, provided that any images will not be edited and Clapsnap Studio, its Facebook Page and/or Website is tagged or mentioned along with the images.
STORAGE: After 12 months from your session date, Clapsnap Studio will no longer be responsible for storing your image files.
GIFT CARDS: Gift Cards are transferable but non-refundable. If a Client cancels or do not attend a scheduled appointment, there is no rearrangement and no refunds. Read the full Gift Card Terms and Conditions here.
PAYMENT: All sessions and packages are tax inclusive. They can be paid via cash, check, debit or credit card. Paying online using paypal or credit/debit card includes an online transaction fee to cover paypal fees, while paying through the bank does not include any additional fee. Please be advised that Clapsnap Studio only accepts bank payments through Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) or BPI Family. If a Client pays by check, the check must be clear and any uncleared check will have an additional charge of PHP500 plus the applicable PCHC charges of the issuing bank.
CANCELLATION POLICY: For all cancelled photography sessions, Client forfeits the retainer paid to book the session. To avoid forfeiture, the fee can be credited towards a future session if the Client reschedules the appointment by informing Clapsnap Studio, in written, 72 hours prior to the date of session and re-booking at an agreeable date and time.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS: Clapsnap Studio understands that children can be unpredictable and fall ill at any time. In the event of sickness prior to the session, the Client agrees to make every possible effort to inform Clapsnap Studio no later than 6 hours prior to the start time of the photography session. The session can be transferred to a new date which will be at the convenience of both parties within a maximum 2 month period. Clapsnap Studio reserves the right to reschedule outside of this time limit due to any existing commitments. If the Client fails to reschedule within the 2-month time period, the booking shall be automatically cancelled, with the retainer fee forfeited. In the event of the child falling ill during the session, Clapsnap Studio reserves the right to postpone the photo shoot and reschedule at the convenience of both parties. In the event of this happening, the Client agrees to incur the additional travel expenses.
For Maternity and pre-scheduled Newborn sessions, in the unfortunate event of pregnancy loss, a full refund of services paid is given within 30 days. If session fee is not received, Claspsnap Studio is relieved of any contractual duty to perform on date and time of session. If cancellation due to other reasons, the retainer fee and services paid will be subject to the Cancellation Policy.
LIMITATION: In the event of any unforeseen circumstances where Clapsnap Studio cannot perform this Contract, such as, but not limited to acts of God, fire, casualty, strike, Photographer’s illness or emergency, or other cause beyond the control of the parties, then Clapsnap Studio will make every effort to reschedule the session. A refund of services paid to date shall be given to the Client if a reschedule is not possible, but Clapsnap Studio shall have no further liability with respect to the Contract. This limitation on liability shall also apply in the event that photographic materials are damaged in processing, lost through camera or other media malfunction, lost in the mail, theft, or otherwise lost or damaged without fault on the part of the photographer and Clapsnap Studio.
