WebDevelopmentsUK Terms & Conditions

The contract between WebDevelopmentsUK and the Client will be on these conditions, to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions. Any variations to these conditions shall have no effect unless agreed in writing.

The works to be carried out shall be as set out in the WebDevelopmentsUK confirmation order email.

Email will be the method of contact with regard to all communication. Although WebDevelopmentsUK can be contacted by telephone, we will use email as our method of communication and therefore it is the Client's responsibility to inform us of any change in email address so we always have up to date email contact details. WebDevelopmentsUK can not be held liable in any way relating to communication issues if we are not supplied a valid email address. WebDevelopmentsUK will endeavour to acknowledge all emails within 5 working days.

WebDevelopmentsUK will only commence work on a Project after receipt of a non refundable, 50% deposit of the quoted Project fee from the Client. WebDevelopmentsUK will also require 25% payment upon overall approval of the home page design. The final 25% payment is to be made on completion of the website. The website will be switched to Live Mode once the Clients remaining balance is paid in full.

The deposit paid to WebDevelopmentsUK covers the cost of design work carried out as well as any admin work and communication with WebDevelopmentsUK. The deposit is non refundable.

WebDevelopmentsUK shall expect the Client to carry out sufficient research before proceeding with a website. This will include checking that the website/idea/business will operate legally. It is important that the website is not in any way illegal.

It is important for the Client to keep in contact with WebDevelopmentsUK throughout the entire Project. If a Client does not make contact for 1 week we will make up to 5 attempts to contact the client by email using the email address specified when the client went ahead. If we do not receive a response to these attempts of contact the Project may be terminated, and the deposit will not be refunded.

Where images used on the website have been purchased by WebDevelopmentsUK on behalf of the Client, these images are strictly for use on the website only. WebDevelopmentsUK are not liable for misuse of these images by the Client or any other person’s copying, altering or distributing the images to individuals or other organisations.

WebDevelopmentsUK will host the website if the Client requires us to do so and on receipt of full payment of our Hosting fees. In doing so, WebDevelopmentsUK will endeavour to provide a reliable and professional service to the Client at all times but do not guarantee that the website Hosting will be available at all times, especially in the event of a technical failure beyond our control.

All hosting offered by WebDevelolpmentsUK is limited to 200mb of website space unless otherwise stated in a separate contract. If your site requires more than 200mb of space we will advise of other hosting solutions and then cease hosting the site.

WebDevelopmentsUK cannot be held responsible for anything adversely affecting the Client's business operation, sales, or profitability that might be claimed is a result of a service offered by WebDevelopmentsUK.

Where asked to provide search engine optimisation for a Client, WebDevelopmentsUK do not guarantee any specific placement or high ranking on search engines.

WebDevelopmentsUK will provide the Client with an expected completion date for the Project (live on the internet) if requested. WebDevelopmentsUK will endeavour to meet any given deadline, but do not guarantee and are not bound in any way to complete the Project by this date. The expected completion date provided by any employee of WebDevelopmentsUK is purely an estimate.

WebDevelopmentsUK own all design and code of the website until final payment has been received in full. Once final payment is received, the Client will then own the design and code of the website. Images will have been purchased by WebDevelopmentsUK for the Client, unless the images have been supplied by the Client. Images purchased by WebDevelopmentsUK are licensed only for use on the client website and are limited to no more than 20 images dependent on the size of the project. Item 17 is subject to item 16.

All images displayed on the Client's website will only be used after authorisation by the Client, and are the sole responsibility of the Client regarding usage and copyright. Should any legal issues or claims arise from the content or copyright of any images supplied by the Client or WebDevelopmentsUK, they will be the sole responsibility of the Client.

Domain names will be registered by WebDevelopmentsUK via jushost and also registered to the WebDevelopmentsUK current address. Although the domain names are registered to WebDevelopmentsUK, the Client is the legal owner of the domain and if they request to have details changed or the domain transferred elsewhere, WebDevelopmentsUK will do this within a reasonable timeframe.

A domain name will be registered by WebDevelopmentsUK on behalf of the client once we have received the 50% deposit, 25% design payment, 25% final payment and a completed creative brief.

It is the responsibility of the Client to renew their domain names when due. If a domain name expires, WebDevelopmentsUK can not be held liable for this. However, WebDevelopmentsUK will make reasonable effort to contact the Client regarding domain renewal.

When a Client renews Hosting with WebDevelopmentsUK, this also includes domain renewal if the renewal is needed to keep the site functioning and was purchased as part of the Hosting package. If the Client does not renew the Hosting, their domain name could be made available to the public for purchase and WebDevelopmentsUK can not be held liable for this.

Renewal of Hosting is due on a yearly basis. The date of renewal will be annually from the date the website was made live. The Hosting will not be renewed if WebDevelopmentsUK cannot contact the Client or the Client requests for WebDevelopmentsUK to not host this site. This will also affect the domain as per item 22.

The Hosting renewal charge must be received within 10 days of the Hosting expiry date. WebDevelopmentsUK reserve the right to deactivate any website where the Hosting has expired and the Client has not paid the renewal charge. There will be an admin fee set by WebDevelopmentsUK for reactivating the website/Hosting.

If the Client does not use WebDevelopmentsUK Hosting services, then the management and Hosting of the Domain name are the full responsibility of the Client.

WebDevelopmentsUK will provide 1 years free hosting providing the client pays their deposit payment within 48 hours. If the deposit payment is not received within 48 hours then WebDevelopmentsUK reserve the right to charge £100+VAT for 1 years hosting of the clients website.

Should a Client wish to move Hosting away from WebDevelopmentsUK or transfer a Domain name away from WebDevelopmentsUK , a £50 admin charge will be issued, which must be paid before the transfer takes place.

WebDevelopmentsUK has no control of, or responsibility for, the content of Clients’ website's. In no way does the textual or image based Content of our Client's web sites constitute WebDevelopmentsUK endorsement, or approval of the website or the material contained within the website. WebDevelopmentsUK has not verified any of the materials, images or information contained within our Client's web sites and is not responsible for the content or performance of these sites or for the Client's transactions with them. WebDevelopmentsUK provides links or references to our Client's website's solely for the convenience of prospective customers and intends that the links it provides be current and accurate, but does not guarantee or warrant that such links will point to the intended Client site at all times.

WebDevelopmentsUK are not liable for loss, damage or corruption to files or information stored on its or justhost servers or individual PCs relating to a Client's website. The Client is solely responsible for any information or files relating to its website.

If a Domain name is purchased by the Client through a company other than WebDevelopmentsUK, the Client has full responsibility in making sure that the domain name is renewed when due. WebDevelopmentsUK will not renew the Domain name when annual Hosting renewal is due if the Domain name is purchased through a company other than WebDevelopmentsUK.

WebDevelopmentsUK will take a 1.9% service charge payment on any payments received using a credit or debit card. If this is not acceptable to the client, we also accept BACS and Cheque as an alternative payment method.
