Terms & Conditions between 'Rugby Web Design Limited' and 'the Client' are described here.
Please read these terms and conditions carefully. Any purchase or use of service implies that the Client has read and accepted these terms and conditions.
Quotations are valid for three months from the date of issue.
Whilst Rugby Web Design Limited will always aim to invoice based on the estimated quote, sometimes the price of the final invoice may differ from the quote. This is because it is commonplace for clients to make changes to the original brief, or request additional features during the build process. All requests for additional work or changes to the quoted specifications must be supplied in writing (for example, by email).
An allowance for in-person meetings, video calls or phone calls is accounted for in the quotation. If additional meetings are required, an additional charge may be made.
If the Client requires a fixed price, full project specifications will be required. This will require all website content to be provided and the design and functionality fully specified.
Occasionally Rugby Web Design Limited may be asked to liaise with a third party on the Client's behalf (such as an old hosting company or domain registrar). If a third party requests payments, any costs incurred will be added to the final invoice.
Additional works carried out after the initial build will be chargeable at a rate of £35 per hour* (minimum 30-minute charge). *Effective 1st April 2022
3. Payment Stages
Before work commences, and for the avoidance of doubt, Rugby Web Design Limited will request acceptance of the quote and acceptance of these terms, together with the company name, address and contact details. (See the form below).
A deposit of 25% of the quote is required prior to commencement of any work.
The remaining 75% of the quote, (plus any additional fees incurred during the build) will be required prior to the website being published on the domain. Similarly, full payment is required before master artwork files are supplied or a website project is transferred to the client's control.
Should a project build extend longer than planned, (eg: longer than 1 month) Rugby Web Design Limited reserves the right to issue interim invoices. Typically, interim invoices will be a further 25% payment.
Ongoing website hosting is payable yearly in advance. 30 days notice is required prior to the anniversary date to cancel a hosting plan.
No refunds can be given if a hosting plan is cancelled mid-term.
Invoices will be sent via email which will include electronic fund transfer details. Rugby Web Design Limited does not accept cash, cheques or card payments.
All invoices should be settled within 7 days of the invoice unless otherwise agreed.
Late payment of invoices will result in the suspension of service. This could mean that the Client's website and/or email service stops working.
Non-payment of invoices will be pursued rigorously. Interest may be added and any legal fees or costs will become payable.
5. The build process
At all stages of a website build, the Client will be provided with the opportunity to see the website taking shape and provide feedback and request changes.
Upon acceptance of the finished design (and payment of the final balance) any additional work will become chargeable and no longer form part of the original quotation.
