We can only suggest and make revisions according to Facebook and Amazon’s ever-changing compliance policies. If Client’s video does not get approved, we will make the necessary revisions via editing to get it approved.
Saving is Gaining, LLC is not a performance marketing agency. Saving is Gaining, LLC is not responsible for the performance of any Content once produced.
Pets and baby models may be unpredictable and cooperation is not guaranteed. If a pet or a baby model is uncooperative and additional production time is expended, the Client may be subject to additional fees and/or video and photo delivery will be delayed.
Saving is Gaining, LLC is not liable for loss or any consequence of loss of products or information during shipment.
If we need to send you information about your account, your order, billing, your Merchandise, legal notices, or anything else related to the Service we provide, we will send it to the email address you provided when starting your order. We may also contact you via telephone and postal mail, but are not required to do so. You should ensure any email coming from the domain “AzonVidzMedia.com” is added to a “whitelist” to help ensure delivery and that it is not rejected or deleted as junk or spam.
You are responsible for the costs of shipping your Merchandise to and from our studio, plus any necessary insurance. Choose a shipping provider with reliable tracking information and signature confirmation. If a shipment is lost, delayed, or damaged, while in transit to our studio, we are not responsible for such loss, damage or delays.
- Prohibited items. Do not deliver to us any Merchandise that contains, any narcotic, illegal drug, or controlled substance, or any dangerous weapon, firearm, explosive, dangerous chemical, obscene or pornographic materials or any merchandise that is unlawful to possess in the State of Texas or the United States.
- Shipping of Merchandise to us. When shipping Merchandise to our studio, please follow these guidelines:
- Packages should be carefully packed to ensure protection of the Merchandise during transit.
- All packages should include your name, company name, address, email address, and phone number.
- Return shipping. If you specify return shipping when placing your order, we will return your Merchandise to you after completion of the project. You must provide a physical address (sorry, no PO boxes) for return. Due to import/export regulations, all return shipments must be to an address within the USA. Client will be responsible for postage fees in addition to the $25 service fee. All return shipments are subject to our Limitation of Liability in section 5 (4) below.
- Limitation of liability for damage or loss of Merchandise. If your Merchandise becomes damaged or lost while in our possession, or during return shipment, we will, at our option, replace, repair, or reimburse you for the value of the Merchandise up to a maximum of $50 USD total lifetime aggregate.

After 30 days, you must arrange with us for Merchandise to be returned, picked up, donated, or discarded. If we are unable to obtain your preference, Merchandise will be subject to our Abandonment policy in section 5 (7) below.
- Donating or discarding. Occasionally, the value of some Merchandise may be less than the cost of return shipping. If you do not want the Merchandise returned to you at the completion of your project please let us know and we will donate or discard the Merchandise. We are not able to offer compensation or credit for donated or discarded Merchandise. If you choose to have your Merchandise donated or discarded, we will decide which persons or organizations receive the Merchandise or whether it is discarded instead of donated.
- Abandonment. If your Merchandise is in our possession and we aren’t able to reach you regarding its return, it will be considered abandoned after the time periods detailed below have expired. If we try to reach you to obtain return shipping information, or payment for return shipping, and 30 days pass without us receiving the necessary information or payment, we will then take an action to get this merchandise donated, discarded, or sold, and you agree that all title, interest, and ownership of the Merchandise shall be transferred to us and the Merchandise will be donated, discarded, or sold, at our option, and you will not receive any compensation for the merchandise or proceeds from any sale.
6. Invoicing and payment
- Payment terms. Saving is Gaining, LLC operates as a business and we expect Clients to understand and respect our policies. Our goal as a video and photo production company is to bring the highest value per dollar spent by our Clients, and in order to help us in that pursuit, we need to cover expenses and fuel our operations. Therefore, we require payments to be made upfront and on time in respect to the services offered to Client. Video production, photography, graphic design and editing require extensive resources, consumes our time and incurs internal expenses. Therefore once a payment or deposit is made, it is non-refundable. If a project gets cancelled, delayed or postponed by the Client, then all monies paid will be retained by Saving is Gaining, LLC and if applicable, an additional cost will be charged to the Client for all work completed beyond what was already paid for. No exceptions.
- Non-payment. If payment for our services is not rendered, we may take legal action to collect payments due. We may also exercise our rights under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act to issue takedown notices requesting the removal from website(s), any Content we’ve delivered to you which has gone unpaid. We may also seek injunctive relief to prevent unpaid Content from being published, reproduced, or displayed. Additionally, we may pursue legal action for actual, statutory, and punitive damages for copyright infringement if you publish or use our Content without remitting payment.
7. Refund policy
By hiring Saving is Gaining, LLC for services you are bound by this agreement and you agree to abide by our policies, including this refund and cancellation policy.
Client has up to 90 days to fulfill their order by sending their product to Saving is Gaining, LLC. After the 90-day period is up, the original price of their purchase may be credited to their account for purchase of another package and may be subject to pay the difference due to price increase.
Payment profile info is stored within our payment processing system so that we can charge the Client payment system for services provided OR we may also send an invoice so that you can pay from your end. Claiming that you didn’t provide your payment information or that you are not aware of such charges is illegal and fraudulent. If any chargeback or payment dispute is caused by Client to a bank, credit card company, or other financial institution, then Client services and/or projects will be suspended and in some cases all work will be undone (reversed) without notice. Furthermore, the amount of the chargeback fee will be issued to Client (to recover any fees passed on to us by that financial institution). In Addition, any outstanding balances accrued as a result of the chargeback(s) will have to be paid in full before we restore service, deliver any files, or commence any work.
Requesting a chargeback or opening a dispute for a valid charge from us is fraud. Chargebacks are never a legal or appropriate means of obtaining a refund. All disputes will be challenged by our legal team with sufficient evidence from our records.
The Client’s payments covers/pays for labor and presentation media in the production of the agreed video, picture and/or editing services. Every effort is taken by Saving is Gaining, LLC to provide the Client with agreed product, and dissatisfaction of its contents, although regrettable, will be deemed subjective and is therefore not open for interpretation by the Client as grounds for refunds or compensation, for which the creative team is not liable.
Payments made to us are refundable under certain circumstances as outlined below. No other refunds, returns, exchanges, or changes may be made except for the following:
- Rush projects not completed by the deadline. In the event a rush order is not completed on time, we will refund the rush fee portion of the project. No other refunds will be made for rush orders delivered after the deadline indicated on the invoice.
- You cancel your order within the specified time. If you have already submitted payment, you may cancel your order by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting cancellation. Cancellation requests must be made within 24 hours of payment. Refunds are not possible for projects cancelled more than 24 hours after payment. Due to tight time constraints, rush orders may not be cancelled.
Refunds will be processed via the same method as the payment was made. Payments by check will be refunded by company check.
In a period of 21 days from the date of completion and delivery of the video product, the original edited footage will be deleted. Replacement of the video product due to loss by you will be considered as a new purchase and full price must be received.
RAW footage and images purchased are non-refundable and non-returnable.
Please contact us to address any billing issues and we will gladly help you.
Our current pricing is published on the pricing page of our Website. We may make changes to the prices we charge for our services at any time by publishing the new rates to our Website. We may offer other services that aren’t listed on our pricing page and, if applicable, those rates will be disclosed prior to work being performed.

We will not be responsible for any claims by you or any third party that the Content is an inaccurate representation of the Merchandise.
- Creative direction. As our client, you may elect to provide creative direction over any aspect of the project, such as lighting, arrangement, camera angle, and editing. If you choose to exercise this creative direction, you must provide such direction in advance so it can be properly recorded on the invoice, shot list, and/or any attachments. You must ensure this creative direction has been correctly recorded to the invoice and any attachments prior to payment. You are not required to provide direction on creative aspects of your project. Any aspects of the project for which you have not provided specific creative direction will be left up to the judgment of our production team. Our creative team will work with the Client to get feedback and input, but we retain creative control over the final Content produced.
- Force Majeure. Our team will perform their tasks to the best of their ability, but we accept no responsibility for force majeure, act of God or other unforeseen circumstances, including, but not limited to equipment failure, power outages, inability to attend and perform services due to illness, and/or any other situation beyond our control. In the event that unforeseen circumstances occur, our team will use best efforts to provide similar services.
- Invoice and any attachments detail all directions. We will complete your order as it is described on the invoice and any attached documents. Our best understanding of any direction, instructions, or ideas you send to us, or we discuss with you, will be described on the invoice and any attachments. It is very important that you carefully read the invoice and any attachments to ensure they accurately describe the work you’d like us to perform for you. If the invoice is not accurate, do not submit payment. Instead, contact your project manager and they will make the necessary changes. By submitting payment for an invoice, you agree the invoice correctly describes the work you would like us to perform. In the case where any written or verbal communication is inconsistent with the order as written on the invoice, the invoice and any attachments shall govern.

We allow up to 10 days for you to provide us with feedback regarding the delivered Content.

- Work not completed as specified on the invoice and accompanying shot list. If we make an error and deliver work that is not correct as specified on the invoice and its accompanying shot list, we will reshoot or edit the work, as needed, to correct the error.
- Revisions. In order to maintain and preserve the quality of our service, we offer 3 minor revisions to your Content – any additional revisions will be an additional cost. Please include as much information as possible in each video revision request to keep your revisions to a minimum due to the lengthy process of revisions. Understand that every additional round of revisions will be extending the deadline of your project. Three minor revisions include, but are not limited to: Minor Caption Modifications (Grammar, Font Choice, Style/Color, Sizing, Positioning, Removing, Adding, Stylization); Sequencing & Composition (Re-arrangement of Footage and Basic Framing); Effect Modifications (Remove or Replace Basic Effects or Transitions); Color Correction, Sound Effects & Music Changes.
- Some change requests made during the review period may require an additional charge. Examples include:
- Additional Content. If you request additional Content that was not previously included on the invoice, we will inform you of the cost and request payment prior to completion of the work.
- Reshoots. If we’ve filmed/photographed the Content as they are described on the invoice but you’d like to see them changed, such as different lighting, camera angle, arrangement, or anything else that requires them to be re-shot, then we will quote an additional charge to cover the cost of reshooting them.
After production is complete, the Content will be delivered through our hosting service. We will email you a link so you can view and download all work that we’ve completed for you. We contract with a third party vendor who manages the website and software that runs our hosting service. While we make every effort to ensure availability, stability and security of this service, we cannot guarantee 100% uptime or that it will be secure against all attacks. You agree that we are not responsible for loss associated with the availability, security, or confidentiality of the Content delivered through our hosting service. We recommend that you make backup copies of all Content for your records in the event of data loss. We are not obligated to store or archive the Content for you and if we do this as part of our hosting service, such storage should be considered as a convenience only.
A review copy of the Video and/or Images will be ready within 15 business days (minimum) from the shoot date, provided the Client has supplied us with all necessary materials within a reasonable amount of time from our request. These include, but are not limited to brand logos, photos, visual assets, etc. Client understands that any delay on Client’s part to deliver needed materials for the Content production, or to schedule time to record interview sessions, may affect the final delivery date.
After purchase, the Client has 30 days to ship us the product and fill out the online form for the project. It is not our responsibility to remind the Client to complete the project form or ship the product. The project form must be fully filled out, so that our creative team will have a complete understanding of your project. It is the Client’s responsibility to email to: email@example.com to inquire about project details when the project form is completed and the product is shipped.
Any specific Client requests may delay delivery of the Content. These include, but are not limited to specific actor demographics, specific actor requests, script approval before production, specific scene requests, locations, etc.
