General Website Design and Creation Terms

 

  1. Contract: The customer’s approval for work to commence is deemed a contractual agreement between the customer and Websites with a Heart. Approval for the work to commence and payment of the advance fee indicates that the customer accepts these terms and conditions.
  2. Advance Deposit Fee: An advance deposit payment of 50% is required before work starts. This is non-refundable unless the project is cancelled before any work has started.
  3. Instructions and timeframe: Websites with a Heart will start working on the project after receiving the deposit. Typically a project is completed within 90 days unless a different deadline has been agreed. To be able to complete a project within any agreed time frame, we’ll need to receive materials and information that we request from the customer in a timely manner. We’ll also need to receive regular input and feedback, so that work can proceed at a consistent pace. So the ability to complete on time is the responsibility of both parties.
  4. Project Scope and Details: The work to be carried out and agreed on is described in a project proposal that is enclosed with the proforma invoice for the deposit payment for the project.
  5. Materials: All material supplied by the customer remains the customer’s property. Websites with a Heart assumes this material belongs to the customer and that it does not breach any copyright laws.
  6. Communication: All communication is by email. Unless otherwise agreed meetings do not take place.
  7. Cancellation: Should the customer wish to cancel at any point during the process they shall remain liable for the work that has taken place and invoiced accordingly.
  8. Payment: An invoice for the balance of the work will be sent by email upon satisfactory completion of the project. Payment of this invoice will be due at the invoice date.
  9. Payment terms: Payment is accepted by bank transfer in Euros, unless otherwise agreed.
  10. Intellectual Copyright: Websites with a Heart retains the copyright of materials they produce, including the source code, created for the customer until payment of the final invoice. At this time it will become the property of the customer.
  11. Future Support: The website is provided to and accepted by the customer as a fully functioning, completed project. Future support can be provided upon request and at an agreed fee. Future changes to the website will be invoiced separately. Websites with a Heart cannot be held responsible for problems that develop on the website after it has been handed over to the customer.
  12. Changes and revisions: The price at the beginning of a contract is based on the amount of time that we estimate we’ll need to accomplish everything you’ve told us you want to achieve, but we’re happy to be flexible. If you want to change your mind or add anything new, that will be possible and we’ll provide a separate estimate for that additional time.
  13. Loss and liability: We carry out work in accordance with good industry practice and at the standard expected from qualified people with relevant experience. That said, we can’t guarantee our work will be free from errors. We won’t be liable to you or any third-party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages, even if you’ve advised us of them. Your liability to us will be limited only to the price stated in this contract. You won’t be liable to us or any third-party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages, even if we’ve advised you of them.
  14. Lawfulness: If any provision of these terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
  15. Deviation: Any deviation from these terms and conditions is only effective if mutually agreed in writing.
