TERMS & CONDITIONS

STANDARD TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

These are the standard terms and conditions for Website Design and Development and apply to all contracts and all work that has been undertaken by WIXCreate for its clients.

 

By stating "I agree" via email, or making Payments, you are confirming that you can access and read and agree to all of this agreement and consent to use of this electronic method of contract acceptance under the U.S. Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (E-SIGN).

 

DEVELOPMENT 

This Web Design Project will be developed using the latest version of Wix HTML5.

 

BROWSER COMPATIBILITY  

Designing a website to fully work in multiple browsers (and browser versions & resolutions) can require considerable, extra effort. It could also involve creating multiple versions of code/pages. WIXCreate represents and warrants that the website we design for you will work in:

 

•    Microsoft® Internet Explorer versions 7 and up 

•    Google Chrome

•    Firefox 3.0 and up

•    Safari

 

OUR FEES AND DEPOSITS

A 50% deposit of the total fee payable under our proposal is due immediately upon you instructing us to proceed with the website design and development work. The remaining 50% shall become due when the work is completed to your reasonable satisfaction but subject to the terms of the “approval of work” and “rejected work” clauses. We reserve the right not to commence any work until the deposit has been paid in full.

 

The 50% deposit is only refundable if we have not fulfilled our obligations to deliver the work required under the agreement. The deposit is not refundable if the development work has been started and you terminate the contract through no fault of ours.

 

SUPPLY OF MATERIALS

You must supply all materials and information required by us to complete the work in accordance with any agreed specification. Such materials may include but are not limited to, photographs, written copy, logos and other printed material. Where there is any delay in supplying these materials to us which leads to a delay in the completion of work, we have the right to extend any previously agreed deadlines by a reasonable amount. All materials and information must be submitted before starting your project.

 

Where you fail to supply materials, and that prevents the progress of the work, we have the right to invoice you for any part or parts of the work already completed.

 

VARIATIONS

We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to make revisions to the design. However, we have the right to limit the number of design proposals to a reasonable amount and may charge for additional designs if you make a change to the original design specification.

Our website development phase is flexible and allows certain variations to the original specification. However, any major deviation from the specification will be charged at the rate of $65.00 per hour, or we will provide a quote for the requested changes.

 

PROJECT DELAYS AND CLIENT LIABILITY

Any time frames or estimates that we give are contingent upon your full co-operation and complete and final content for the work pages. During development, there is a certain amount of feedback required in order to progress to subsequent phases. It is required that a single point of contact be appointed from your side and be made available on a daily basis in order to expedite the feedback process. Each party shall use reasonable efforts to notify the other party, in writing, of a delay. In the event that the client fails to respond within a 7-day period starting from the first contact attempt by WIXCreate to the client, the website project will be considered abandoned and all obligations by WIXCreate will be deemed terminated. A 20% fee of the proposed total project amount will be due to resume work on the project. Conditions beyond the reasonable control of the parties include, but are not limited to, natural disasters, acts of government after the date of the agreement, power failure, fire, flood, acts of God, labor disputes, riots, acts of war, terrorism and epidemics.

 

APPROVAL OF WORK

On completion of the work, you will be notified and have the opportunity to review it. You must notify us in writing of any unsatisfactory points within 7 days of such notification. Any of the work which has not been reported in writing to us as unsatisfactory within the 7-day review period will be deemed to have been approved. Once approved, or deemed approved, work cannot subsequently be rejected and the contract will be deemed to have been completed and the 50% balance of the project price will become due.

 

REJECTED WORK

If you reject any of our work within the 7-day review period, or not approve subsequent work performed by us to remedy any points recorded as being unsatisfactory, and we, acting reasonably, consider that you have been unreasonable in any rejection of the work, we can elect to treat this contract as at an end and take measures to recover payment for the completed work.

 

PAYMENT

Upon completion of the 7-day review period, or upon your final approval of work, we will invoice you for the final balance of the project. Final payment will become due within 2 business days of completion of site or service and before launching the site “live”.

 

LATE PAYMENT

A monthly service fee of 1.5 percent, or the maximum allowed by law, is payable on all overdue balances.
