Affordable web-design for Small UK Businesses
Payment & charges
Deposits will be required before work commences and the balance will be due on completion of the website build.
You have to pay our charges by the due date stated on our invoice. Non payment (or persistent late payment) of our legitimate charges may result in suspension or termination of your account without prior notice. You will still be liable for charges during any period of suspension.
Title to the goods (including but not limited to web design, hosting, email, domain names and/or other service) remains with the vendor until the invoice is paid in full. If payment is not made by the due date, we may suspend or cancel the service and may forward the debt to an external agency for collection. You will pay our reasonable costs and expenses for collecting late payments.
To keep costs and paperwork to a minimum invoices are sent via email.
Should you wish to alter, amend or cancel your contract please do so before the due date shown on the invoice, otherwise invoice charges are payable in full.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
We provide (included in your initial fee) basic SEO to enable search engines to find and display your website. Please ensure you are aware of the level of SEO we offer and you are happy with this. We recommend additional SEO services for commercial sites which we will happily quote you for. Our sites are not compatible with 3rd party SEO packages, but we offer extremely competitive terms for this service. Individual SEO setup is generally more than sufficient for Google etc. Please read marketing section of website for more information.
You may terminate this contract by giving us notice at any time. Termination will be effective from the last day of the period for which you have already paid or the last day of any other agreed minimum period if later and you are liable to pay all charges up to the effective date of termination. If you wish us to terminate the contract part way through a period for which you have already paid, no refund will be given for the remainder of the pre-paid period. Where we charge you a monthly fee to maintain/manage your site if a bill remains unpaid 14 days after the due date, the site will be suspended without notice and a additional fee & delay will be incurred before the site is back up and running. Please help us out here as we do not like having to chase up payments.
