Another 25% payment is due 45 calendar days after the start of the project, or 2 calendar days after the beta design presentation, whichever is earlier.
The remaining 25% shall become due when the work is completed to the clients reasonable satisfaction, but subject to the terms of the “approval of work” and “rejected work” clauses.
- REFUND POLICY
We work sincerely and dedicatedly to satisfy the client. If the client is not pleased with the work, the refund policy works as below:
- 75% of deposit shall be refunded, if requested within seven (7) calendar days from date of order and no development work has begun.
- Refund not applicable on domain registration fees.
- Refund not applicable for any delays outside of Web 907’s control.
- Refund not applicable once website is completed.
- Refund not applicable on web hosting fees.
- SUPPLY OF MATERIALS
The client must supply all materials and information required by Web 907 to complete the work in accordance with any agreed specification. Such materials may include but are not limited to, photographs, written copy, logos, videos and, other printed or digital material. Where there is any delay in supplying these materials that leads to a delay in the completion of work, we have the right to extend any previously agreed deadlines by a reasonable amount (see 6. Project Delays and Client Liability).
Where the client fails 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.
We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to make one-round of revisions to the beta design (unless otherwise stated in the contract). Web 907 has the right to limit the scope of beta design edits to a reasonable amount and may charge for additional design work if the client makes a change to the original design specifications.
Revisions of the beta design can include color, font and page layout changes. The time for revisions is during the Beta Design phase (see 7. Approval of Work).
Any major deviation from the project’s specifications, or addition edits beyond the initial round, will be charged at the rate of $100.00 per hour.
- PROJECT DELAYS & CLIENT LIABILITY
It is required that a single point of contact be appointed from the client and be made available to Web 907 in order to expedite the feedback process.
Any time frames or estimates that Web 907 gives are contingent upon the clients full co-operation and delivery of complete and final content for the project. During development, there is a certain amount of feedback required in order to progress to subsequent phases. It is expected that the client will respond to feedback request in a timely manner. Client failure to communicate with Web 907 can result in project delays or cancellation.
- If all project materials are not received within the initial 45 calendar days, the project will be put on hold until all materials are supplied. At which point a new project timeline shall be agreed upon. A fee of $100 shall be paid by the client to allow Web 907 time to reacquaint with the project.
- A delay in content delivery of 90 days or more shall result in a suspension of the project contract. This will not nullify the contract agreement in terms of pricing and scope of work, but will change the expected delivery time of the project. A fee of $200 shall be paid by the client to reactivate the contract so Web 907 can reacquaint with the project.
- A delay in content delivery of 180 days or more shall result in the termination of the contract without refund.
- Delays in the Beta Review period or 30 days or more, beyond the initial 14-day review period (see 7. Approval of Work), shall result in the project being put on hold. Extensions to the Beta Review period may be requested if circumstances are reasonable or necessary . Once on hold, a project in Beta Review shall not restart until the remaining balance of the project is paid in full.
- Any and all project delays of over 180 days shall result in termination of the contract without refund (see 23. Termination of Agreement).
- APPROVAL OF WORK
On completion of the beta design, the client will be notified and have the opportunity to review the project. This is the called the “Beta Review” period. The client must notify Web 907 in writing of any design or content edits within 14 days of Beta presentation. Any work which has not been reported as needing edited will be deemed approved. Once approved, or deemed approved, work cannot subsequently be rejected.
Approved work will be subsequently invoiced for the remaining balance. (See 9. Payment).
Any new or additional content requests, not provided at the beginning of the project, will be subject to an hourly rate. See “5. Variations” above for more details.
On completion of the Beta Review edits, the client will again be notified and have the opportunity to review the work within 14 days. Additional changes to the project that had not been specified during the initial Beta Review period will be subject to our hourly rate. (See 5. Variations).
Delays in the Beta Review period shall result in the project being put on hold or terminated. (See 6.iv. Project Delays & Client Liability).
- REJECTED WORK
If the client rejects any work within the 14-day Beta Review period, or does 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.
Upon completion of the 14-day Beta Review period, and before the launch of the website onto a live environment, Web 907 will invoice the client for the remaining balance of the project. Web 907 reserves the right to remove any website project from the live environment if final payment is not received with 72-hours of publication.
