The following Terms and Conditions document is a legal agreement between creativePixel Web Design, hereafter “the Developer”, and “the Client” for the purposes of website design or development. These Terms and Conditions set forth the provisions under which the Client may use the services supplied.
2. Acceptance of Work
Quotations are valid for 14 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.
The Developer is liable to withdraw the from contract at any time prior to acceptance.
Additional work requested by the Client that is not specified in the agreed quotation is subject to an additional quotation by the Developer on receipt of specification. If the work is needed as part of an existing project, then this may affect time scale and overall delivery time of the project.
If a functional specification and a set of testing criteria is included within the quotation, the Developer is responsible for fulfilling the testing criteria as the sole criteria for completion of the contract.
The Client agrees to provide any needed information and content required by the Developer in good time to enable the Developer to complete a design or website work as part of an agreed project.
3. 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 Client hereby agrees that all media and content made available to the Developer for use in the project are either owned by the Client or used with full permission of the original authors. The Client agrees to hold harmless, protect and defend the Developer from any claim or suit that may arise as a result of using the supplied media and content.
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.
5. Domain Names and Hosting
The Developer will offer domain name registration and hosting via a third party service, namely Go Daddy (Domain Name Registration) and Webydo (Branded as “poweredbyPixel”).
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 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 via the Developer. The Client agrees to pay the domain name and hosting fees as soon as required.
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 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 that an web 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.
During a website project it is important that the Client communicates information to the Developer to achieve the required result.
The Client agrees they are permitted a maximum of 2 hours of alteration on projects of £300, with an additional 1 hour of alteration available per whole £100 of cost after that, unless quoted otherwise. All alterations are to be requested in writing either by email or postal mail by the Client. After the allocated time for alterations is used up, either in design or coding, the Developer reserves the right to advise the Client of such and send a separate quotation to the Client and to request payment for any further alterations.
The Developer reserves the right to request payment be received for further alterations before continuing work. Upon completion of agreed design, the Client is asked to confirm in writing by email or postal mail that the design and the screen size is signed off as complete and agree that any further design alterations are chargeable.
If the Client requests design or content alterations to pages that have already been completed, new pages or different functionality other than that specified in the original quotation, the Developer reserves the right to quote separately for these alterations.
The Developer endeavours to create pages that are accessible to search engines. However, the Developer gives no guarantee that the site will become listed with search engines.
If an error or issue with the design or code arises during the project, which does not allow the design or code to match the original specification, then the Client agrees that the Developer can apply a nearest available alternative solution.
The Developer at all times applies reasonable skill and care in provision of services.
Once the project is completed, the Developer will upload the website to the Client’s live web address if included as part of a project.
The Developer reserves the right to assign subcontractors in whole or as part of a project if needed.
All communications between Developer and Client shall be by email, or via the PPH workstream, except where agreed at the Developer’s discretion.
7. Payment Terms
Prices are subject to change without notice.
All invoices must be paid in full within 14 days of the invoice date, except where agreed at the Developer’s own discretion.
The Developer reserves the right to decline further work on a project if there are invoices outstanding with the Client.
The Developer reserves the right to remove its work for the Client from the Internet if payments are not received.
The Client agrees to use all Developer services and facilities at their own risk and agrees to defend, indemnify, save and hold the Developer harmless from any and all demands, liabilities, costs, losses and claims, including but not limited to legal fees against the Developer or its associates that may arise directly or indirectly from any service provided or agreed to be provided or any product or service sold by the Client or its third parties.
The Client agrees that this indemnification extends to all aspects of the project, including but not limited to website content and choice of domain name.
The Client also agrees to indemnify, hold harmless and defend, the Developer against any liabilities arising out of injury to property or person caused by any any product or service sold by the Client or any service provided or agreed to be provided or by third parties, including but not limited to infringement of proprietary rights, misinformation, infringement of copyright, delivery of defective services or products that are harmful to any company, person, business, or organisation.
The Developer and any third party associates agree that, unless directed by the Client, it will not at any time during or after the term of this agreement disclose any confidential information. The Client agrees that it will not convey any confidential information about the Developer to another party, unless directed by the Developer.
The Developer reserves the right to terminate a project with a Client at any time without prior notification if it finds the Client in breach of these Terms and Conditions. The Developer shall be the sole arbiter in deciding what constitutes a breach. No refunds will be given in such a situation.
Where one or more terms of this contract are held to be void or unenforceable for whatever reason, any other terms of the contract not so held will remain valid and enforceable at law.
Any and all matters pursuant to this agreement are governed by English Law and are under exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts. This agreement shall be governed by the laws of England and Wales which shall claim venue and jurisdiction for any legal motion or claim arising from this agreement. This agreement is void where prohibited by law.
By accepting a quotation or making a payment of invoice to use the services supplied, the Client acknowledges to have read, understand, and accept the Terms and Conditions of this Agreement, and agrees to be legally binding by these Terms and Conditions.
