If you are not completely happy with the results of your rendering, you can contact our support and ask for an explanation within 14 days after finishing rendering. We will investigate your case and, no later than 14 days after we received the request, we will present our position. In case of a mistake on our side, we will offer you a full or partial refund or some other form of compensation.
