Terms and Conditions
The following terms and conditions apply to all website development, website hosting, IT consultancy and application or website design services provided by Bizz Websites to the Client.
It is not necessary for any Client to have signed an acceptance of these terms and conditions for them to apply. If a Client accepts a quote either written or verbal then the Client will be deemed to have satisfied themselves as to the terms applying and have accepted these terms and conditions in full.
Please read these terms and conditions carefully. Any purchase or use of our services implies that you have read and accepted our terms and conditions.
Charges for services to be provided by Bizz Websites are defined in the project quotation that the Client receives via e-mail or in writing. Quotations are valid for a period of 30 days. Bizz Websites reserves the right to alter or decline to provide a quotation after expiry of the 30 days.
Unless agreed otherwise with the Client, all website design services require an advance payment of a minimum of fifty (50) percent of the development quotation plus the cost of domains(s) and hosting total before the work is supplied to the Client for review. The remaining fifty (50) percent of the development total is due upon completion of the work, prior to upload to the server or release of materials.
Payment for services is due by cheque, cash or bank transfer. Cheques should be made payable to Daniel Bisgrove and sent to Bizz Websites , 69 Drayton Place, Ithlingborough, Northamptonshire, NN9 5TD. Bank details will be made available on invoices.
3. Client Review
Bizz Websites will provide the Client with an opportunity to review the appearance and content of the website during the design phase and once the overall website development is completed. At the completion of the project, such materials will be deemed to be accepted and approved unless the Client notifies Bizz Websites otherwise within ten (10) days of the date the materials are made available to the Client.
4. Turnaround Time and Content Control
Bizz Websites will install and publicly post or supply the Client’s website by the date specified in the project proposal, or at date agreed with Client upon Bizz Websites receiving initial payment, unless a delay is specifically requested by the Client and agreed by Bizz Websites.
In return, the Client agrees to delegate a single individual as a primary contact to aid Bizz Websites with progression of the commission in a satisfactory and expedient manner.
During the project, Bizz Websites will require the Client to provide website content; text, images, movies and sound files as are pursuant to the project.
5. Failure to provide required website content:
Bizz Websites is a small business, to remain efficient we must ensure that work we have programmed is carried out at the scheduled time. On occasions we may have to reject offers for other work and enquiries to ensure that your work is completed at the time arranged.
This is why we ask that you provide all the required information in advance. On any occasion where progress cannot be made with your website because we have not been given the required information in the agreed time frame, and we are delayed as result, we reserve the right to impose a surcharge of up to 25%.
If your project involves Search Engine Optimisation we need the text content for your site in advance so that the SEO can be planned and completed efficiently.
If you agree to provide us with the required information and subsequently fail to do within one week of project commencement we reserve the right to close the project and the balance remaining becomes payable immediately. This ensures that the project can be efficiently managed and reduce delays in going live.
NOTE: Text content should be delivered in suitable electronic format with the pages in the supplied document representing the content of the relevant pages on your website. These pages should have the same titles as the agreed website pages. Contact us if you need clarification on this.
For wordpress, ecommerce or other content management systems, and where agreed as part of the project costs, you will be able to keep your content up to date yourself following website build and initial content loading by ourselves.
Invoices will be provided by Bizz Websites either before work begins or upon completion but before publishing the live website. Invoices are normally sent via email; however, the Client may choose to receive hard copy invoices.
Invoices are due upon receipt, unless alternate terms have been agreed in advance of the project being initiated. Accounts that remain unpaid thirty (30) days after the date of the invoice will be subject to a service charge in the amount of the higher of one and one-half percent (1.5%) or £30 per month of the total amount due.
7. Additional Expenses
Client agrees to reimburse Bizz Websites for any additional expenses necessary for the completion of the work. Examples would be travel and time given for on-site meetings, purchase of special templates, fonts, stock photography etc.
As standard web resources such as templates, fonts, stock images etc will be charged at two (2) times the purchase price paid by Bizz Websites.
8. Web Browsers
Bizz Websites makes every effort to ensure websites are designed to be viewed by the majority of visitors. Websites are designed to work with the most popular current browsers: Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer (10 and up) and Safari. Client agrees that Bizz Websites cannot guarantee correct functionality with all browser software across different operating systems or mobile devices.
Bizz Websites cannot accept responsibility for web pages which do not display acceptably in new versions of browsers released after the website have been designed and handed over to the Client. As such, Bizz Websites reserves the right to quote for any work involved in changing the website design or website code for it to work with updated browser software.
Accounts unpaid thirty (30) days after the date of invoice will be considered in default. If the Client in default maintains any information or files on Bizz Websites Web space, Bizz Websites will, at its discretion, remove all such material from its web space. Bizz Websites is not responsible for any loss of data incurred due to the removal of the service.
Removal of such material does not relieve the Client of the obligation to pay any outstanding charges assessed to the Client’s account. Cheques returned for insufficient funds will be assessed a return charge of £25 and the Client’s account will immediately be considered to be in default until full payment is received. Clients with accounts in default agree to pay Bizz Websites reasonable expenses, including legal fees and costs for collection by third-party agencies, incurred by Bizz Websites in enforcing these Terms and Conditions.
Termination of services by the Client must be requested in a written notice and will be effective on receipt of such notice. E-mail or telephone requests for termination of services will not be honoured until and unless confirmed in writing.
