Clients with accounts in default agree to pay Developer reasonable expenses, including legal fees and costs for collection by third-party agencies, incurred by Developer in enforcing these Terms and Conditions.

14. Independent Contractor Status

The parties agree that the Developer shall be an independent contractor and not an agent, employee or representative of the Client. Client shall have no right to direct or control the details of the Developers’ work with other Clients or Customers. Developer shall not receive any fringe benefits or other perks that the Client may provide to its employees and Developer agrees to be responsible for its own business overhead and costs of doing business and to furnish (or reimburse Client for) all tools and materials necessary to accomplish the services required of Developer pursuant to this Agreement, and shall incur all expenses associated with performance, except as expressly provided in this Agreement or amendments to this Agreement.

Developer hereby indemnifies and holds the Client harmless of any obligation that may be imposed on Client (i) to pay in withholding taxes or similar items or (ii) resulting from Developer’s being determined not to be an independent contractor.

15. Client Review

Developer 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 Developer otherwise within fourteen (14) days of the date the materials are made available to the Client.

16. Project Delays and Client Liability

Any time frames or estimates that the Developer has been given are contingent upon Client’s full co-operation along with 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 the Client’s side and be made available on a daily basis in order to expedite the feedback process. Developer will not be responsible if the web design project remains largely unfinished or is delayed, due to Client’s own inaction, or by not approving design mockups / requesting web design changes on time. After the initial 45 calendar days, if the project is still unfinished, $125/hour would be billed for any further change request.

17. Web Browsers

Developer 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 (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer 8 & 9, Google Chrome, etc.). Client agrees that Developer cannot guarantee correct functionality with all browser software across different operating systems.

Developer cannot accept responsibility for web pages which do not display acceptably in new versions of browsers released after the website has been designed and handed over to the Client. As such, Developer 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.

18. Post-Placement Alterations

Developer cannot accept responsibility for any alterations caused by a third party occurring to the Client’s pages once installed. Such alterations include, but are not limited to new plugins, theme modifications, additions, code modifications or deletions.

19. Liability

Developer hereby excludes itself, its Employees and or Agents from all and any liability from:

  • Loss or damage caused by any inaccuracy;
  • Loss or damage caused by omission;
  • Loss or damage caused by delay or error, whether the result of negligence or other cause in the production of the web site;
  • Loss or damage to Clients’ artwork/photos, supplied for the site, immaterial whether the loss or damage results from negligence or otherwise.

The entire liability of Developer to the Client in respect of any claim whatsoever or breach of this Agreement, whether or not arising out of negligence, shall be limited to the charges paid for the Services under this Agreement in respect of which the breach has arisen.

20. Severability

In the event any one or more of the provisions of this Agreement shall be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall be unimpaired and the Agreement shall not be void for this reason alone. Such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision shall be replaced by a mutually acceptable valid, legal and enforceable provision, which comes closest to the intention of the parties underlying the original provision.

21. Refund Policy

It is the Developers intention to work sincerely & dedicatedly to satisfy the Client. If Client is still not satisfied they can request a refund per the Developers’ refund policy as follows:
