If notice is given within 48 hours, all deposits may be forfeit. The fee for cancellation without 48 hours notice is $75 or half the session cost, whichever is greater. In the rare event that the studio becomes unavailable, or is out of operation during your session time, MakeWatch reserves the right to cancel your session and will refund any unused studio time rounded to the nearest 15 minutes.

MakeWatch will give a good faith effort to give as much notice as possible, but wont be held liable for any cost or damages, personal or otherwise due to cancellation.
ARCHIVAL AND DELIVERY OF MIX DATA
The mixing methods used at MakeWatch are our engineers intellectual property. We take pride in our craft and have spent thousands of hours gaining the skills our clients trust. To protect our methodology and workflow, we do not provide our mix data to anyone. This includes plugin settings, mixed Pro Tools session files, etc. We will gladly send you uncompressed audio files or processed stems from the mix. All Archival services are billed at the engineer's hourly rate. Stems are audio files created from each sound with mixing embedded; you can load them up 10 years from now and hear the same mix (while the same might not be easily done for current Pro Tools sessions file types at that time). To receive any music or files by us after after your session, your account must be in good standing with no money owed.
