Should you require that the Customer Website is modified to work with other browsers, or with any legacy version of any browser, an additional charge may be made.

10.2 As a result of advancements in technology, Customer Websites may not operate with certain legacy browsers. It is your responsibility to make appropriate checks and, if appropriate to consult with us, that any browser or browsers you utilise are compatible with the browsers on which the Customer Websites have been developed to operate.

10.3 Software manufacturers release newer versions of their browsers from time to time and we have a policy of design renewal which uses the latest technologies available to take advantage of these advancements. You will be advised of changes to our Product(s) and Service(s) as and when they become available, and you will be given the opportunity to upgrade at a preferential rate.

10.4 Whilst websites built for older browsers should be upwardly compatible, we have no control of manufacturers' decisions, and as a consequence, we cannot guarantee an older website will work correctly on newer browser versions and so we always recommend that you upgrade your Customer Website. We reserve the right to apply a charge to make an older site compatible if required.

11. WEBSITE HOSTING

11.1 The terms governing the hosting of the Customer Website are given in our Software Development Contract which is outside the scope of these General Terms.

12.4 The contract for Customer Website support is for a period of twelve (12) months commencing from the date the Order is accepted by us (the “Term”).  You may terminate the support contract by providing us with no less than one (1) months’ notice, but you acknowledge and agree that should you cancel the support contract during the Term, you are still liable to pay us for the entire 12 months.  

13.    WEBSITE SECURITY

13.1 We generally include basic security updates in our annual support contract. We reserve the right to charge for any large security updates which we would quote for prior to any work taking place.

We may further charge a fee for any work required to move the website to another supplier. We accept no responsibility for websites compromised irrespective of whether you have agreed for us to update security.

The registrar with which you have registered your Domain Name may also require a transfer fee, which is also payable by you. For the avoidance of doubt, we will not be held responsible for the renewal of the Domain Name until we are the ones administering it, at which point the responsibility lies with you as per clause 14.2 above.

14.7 We reserve the right to refuse to transfer Domain Names if any payments owing to us remain outstanding.

18. COMPLIANCE

18.1 If applicable, we make every effort to update, as and when necessary, those areas of Customer Websites which require modification and changes to satisfy the requirements of the relevant Compliance Authority or network to which you are a member. Such changes will usually be required as a result of new legislation, any changes to the relevant Compliance Authority or network to which you are a member, and the effects of the annual government budget. These changes will usually be made free of charge only where there is a valid support contract in place. Any work outside of a support contract will be quoted for.

18.2 Where your business requires that the Customer Website must be approved by the relevant Compliance Authority or a network to which you are a member, the Customer Website will not be made accessible in the public domain until you or the relevant Compliance Authority or network to which you are a member has approved the Customer Website and you have instructed us to make the Customer Website "live". Any reasonable amendments required to satisfy the relevant Compliance Authority or network to which you are a member will be made at no additional cost to you before this point. Any amendments requested following the Customer Website being made “live” will be chargeable where there is not a support contract in place.

18.3 It is important to note that we are not authorised to confirm that the Customer Content/Data will satisfy the relevant Compliance Authority or network to which you are a member, and the responsibility for satisfying the requirements of the relevant Compliance Authority or network to which you are a member will always lie with you. You will be responsible at all times for ensuring that the Customer Website and any changes to the Customer Website satisfy the requirements of the relevant Compliance Authority or network to which you are a member. Furthermore, you are responsible for keeping a copy of the Customer Website and details of all changes to the Customer Website for compliance purposes. We will ordinarily retain only a copy of the most current version of the Customer Website.

18.4 For the avoidance of doubt, we will not be held responsible for: (a) delays to a website because of your failure to provide us with the necessary information and/or feedback in a timely manner; and/or (b) how long compliance takes to review a website and provide approval.

6. TERM AND TERMINATION

6.1 Upon submitting to us a signed Order, you agree to a minimum Contract term of 12 months in respect of the required website, commencing from the date the website is published live on the web or three months from signing the Order (whichever comes first). This Order is not subject to cancellation once your instructions have been received via the online Order. Upon completion of the initial period of twelve (12) months, the Contract term will thereupon change to a rolling, monthly Contract, with a notice period of one (1) calendar month, in writing, by either party.

6.2 In order to achieve the delivery of your site within the normally agreed timescale of three months, we would expect that the client will designate a member of staff who will be responsible for the website project, on the client side, to co-operate in the site construction process and to respond to requests for feedback, approval or content within a reasonable timeframe - considered to be a maximum of seven (7) days. Unless agreed by both parties, in writing, it is understood and agreed that the website construction process should not take more than three (3) months from date of Order, to be completed. Should there be any departure, however, from this specified deadline, by either party, then agreement, in writing, is required, upon an amended date for completion.

6.3 Subject to the above, we will commence invoicing the website licence fees at the end of the three (3) month construction period. However, if the website has been signed off by you, within the three (3) month construction period, but is awaiting compliance approval, then we reserve the right to agree to delay the start date when invoicing is due to commence, until such time as compliance approval has been received. It should be noted that in the event that the site completion be delayed, and such delay is solely as a result of your lack of response or required co-operation then licence fees will commence as per these General Terms at the end of the three (3) month construction period.

6.4 We may cancel the Contract for any reason by providing thirty (30) days’ notice in writing, or, where the reason is that of non-payment, with five (5) days’ notice.

6.5 Upon termination of the Contract, you shall immediately cease to be entitled to use the Customer Website Theme.
