It is your responsibility to periodically check the website for updates.
Details of the Work
You are hiring us to design and develop a website(s) for the estimated total price outlined in your proposal.
You certify that you have the power and ability to enter into this contract on behalf of your company or organization. You agree to provide us with everything we need to complete the project, including text, images, fonts, and other information, as and when we need it and in the format, we ask for. You agree to review our work, provide feedback, and sign off approval promptly and are bound by any deadlines that we set together. You also agree to keep to the payment schedule set out in this proposal.
We have the experience and ability to perform the services you need, and we will carry them out professionally and promptly. We will endeavor to meet all the deadlines set but are not responsible for a missed launch date or deadlines if you have been late in supplying materials or have not approved our work on time at any stage. We will also maintain the confidentiality of any information that you give us.
We will create designs for your website’s look, layout, and functionality. This contract includes one main design and two opportunities for you to make revisions to the final design. If you are not happy with the design at that point, we will provide you with an additional quote for the extra design work needed. If you wish to cancel our agreement, you may do so, and we will retain the payments for the work completed to date.
We will test our designs in current versions of all major browsers, including those made by Apple, Microsoft, and Google.
We will not test these templates in old or abandoned browsers, for example, Microsoft Internet Explorer for Windows or Mac, previous versions of Apple’s Safari, Mozilla Firefox, or Chrome unless otherwise agreed upon.
We are not responsible for writing or inputting any text copy unless included in your proposal. We will be happy to help, but significant work on our part will result in a charge above and beyond the original price. This will not be done without your approval of an additional quote provided in advance.
If needed, you will supply us with photographs either in digital or printed format. If you choose to buy stock photographs, that price will be added to the initial quote. Stock photography will not be purchased without your written approval. You are also encouraged to check sites like Unsplash.com for royalty-free stock images.
Changes and Revisions
The estimate/quotation prices in this proposal are based on the time we estimate we will need to accomplish everything you have told us you want to achieve. If you want to change your mind, add extra pages, or even add new functionality, that won’t be a problem. You will be provided with an additional quote for the extra work at that time. For anything outside the scope of this original agreement, we may charge an additional 30% scope fee to our normal hourly rate.
The quote provided includes the installation of your site on your server. Updates to and management of that server, plus any support issues or integrations like Google Analytics, will be up to you unless you choose to purchase our site maintenance plan.
We do not offer or include technical support for website hosting, email, or other services relating to website maintenance unless you choose to subscribe to a site maintenance plan.
Site Maintenance Plans
We only provide ongoing service for sites actively subscribed to a site maintenance plan. All of the details of each plan are outlined here and the features of each plan are guaranteed during the active billing cycle. If features or pricing is adjusted, all actively subscribed clients will receive a written notice outlining the changes and be given the option to adjust their plan selection in accordance with the new features.
You guarantee that you own any elements of text, graphics, photos, designs, trademarks, or other artwork you provide for inclusion on the website or that you have permission to use them.
When we receive your final payment, the copyright is automatically assigned as follows:
You own the visual elements that we create for you for this project, and you should store them carefully, as we are not required to keep them or provide any native source files that we used in making them.
You also own text content, photographs, and other data you provided unless someone else owns them. We own the HTML markup, CSS, and other code, and we license it for you only on this project.
We own our premium theme license(s) and cannot share them with you unless you subscribe to one of our site maintenance plans. If you wish to continue receiving theme updates and choose to conduct your own site maintenance, you will need to purchase your license(s).
We also reserve the right to display a link in the footer, link to your completed project as part of our portfolio, and write about the project on/in websites, magazines, and books.
We reserve the right in our sole discretion to refuse, remove, restrict your access, revoke and terminate your use of our website including any or all Content published by you or us at any time for any reason, without notice.
Our payment schedule will be as follows but may be revised based on further conversations between us.
- A maintenance plan must be selected and payment submitted before work begins
- The initial 50% of the development cost is due before work begins
- The remaining 50% of the development cost is due upon completion
We accept payments via Credit & Debit Cards and ACH Bank Transfers; in some cases, we may require ACH payments.
