Acceptance of Work
Quotations are valid for 7 days from date of issue.
When the Client places an order to purchase a website or website updates from the Developer, the order represents an offer to the Developer to purchase the website or website updates. No contract for the supply of services exists between Client and Developer until the Developer sends an invoice to the Client for payment. The invoice equals acceptance by the Developer (or third party supplier) of the Client’s offer to purchase services from the Developer and this acceptance of work is a valid contract between Client and Developer regardless of whether the Client receives the invoice.
Any other services on the order that have not been included in the invoice do not form part of the contract. The Client agrees to check that the details of the invoice are correct and should print and keep a copy for their records.
Permission and Copyright
Copyright of the completed web designs, images, pages, code and source files created by the Developer for the project shall be with the Client upon final payment only by prior written agreement. Without agreement, ownership of designs and all code is with the Developer
The Developer reserves the right to refuse to handle:
Any media that is unlawful or inappropriate.
Any media that contains a virus or hostile program.
Any media that constitutes harassment, racism, violence, obscenity, harmful intent or spamming.
Any media that constitutes a criminal offence, or infringes privacy or copyright.
Domain names and Hosting
The Developer can, at its own discretion, but is not obliged to, offer domain name registration and hosting via a third party service.
The Client agrees that registration of a domain name does not provide endorsement of the right to use the name. The Client is responsible for ensuring they have due title to the domain name. The Developer holds no liability and the Client hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Developer from any claim resulting from the Client’s registration of a domain name.
The domain name is registered in the Client’s own name, with the address and contact details of the Developer. The Client should be aware that a domain name is registered with a third party and as such the Client shall agree to fully abide by the terms and conditions set out by the third party for such services.
The Client agrees to take all legal responsibility for use of third party domain name and hosting services and supply truthful details to the third party services.
The Client agrees that information submitted for registration of domain names is then available to the general public via the NominetWhois system. However, Clients who are using their website for non-trading purposes may ask the third party registrar for their contact information not to be included in the NominetWhois system.
The Client is liable to pay the Developer for any domain name registrations and the initial set-up of the hosting if included as part of the website build.
Any support relating to the domain name, hosting and email services is between the Client and the third party service.
Any other domain name and hosting services or costs not included by the Developer, including but not limited to further domain name registration fees, domain name transfer charges, yearly domain name renewals, hosting charges, yearly hosting renewals, hosting upgrades, extra disk space, bandwidth and any other related or hidden charges, are to be paid by the Client to the third party services.
The Client agrees to pay the domain name and hosting fees as soon as required by the third party. Any modifications needed to the domain name or hosting services are to be made between the Client and third party service.
The Client agrees that if at any time their contact details, including email address, change, it is their responsibility to contact the third party and update their contact details. Failure to do so may mean that renewal invoices for the domain name and hosting services are not received by the Client.
Payment for domain name and hosting services is to be made immediately on receipt of an invoice from the third party service. Failure to comply with the payment terms may result in the Client’s domain name becoming available to another party and/or the website and email services becoming unavailable.
The Client agrees to pass on FTP details and any other access details relating to their domain name and hosting account that the Developer requires to upload the website if required as part of a project.
The Developer reserves the right without notice to cancel, reject or refuse work with domain names or hosting services without reason for such rejection or refusal.
The Client agrees to be liable for their use of the domain name, hosting and email services with the third party and hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Developer from any claim resulting from the Client’s publication of material and use of the domain name, hosting and email services.
The Client agrees to take full responsibility for all usage of the domain name, hosting and email services and to fully abide by the terms and conditions set out by the third party for such services.
The Client agrees that an HTML page built from a graphic design may not exactly match the original design because of the difference between the display in design software and the rendering of HTML code by Internet browser software. The Developer agrees to try to match the design as closely as is possible when building the code.
