A minimum deposit of forty per cent (40%) is required to commence work.
Within two weeks after the 40% deposit is received by the Developer basic site design concepts will be put online for the Client’s viewing and approval. Communication between the Developer and the Client is crucial during this phase to ensure that the ultimate publication will match the Client’s taste and needs. Upon completion of this stage, the Client will be asked to confirm acceptance for the basic site design via e-mail or by signing a printed copy of the design and an additional 40% will be required. Once this acceptance is received from the Client, the work necessary to complete the project will begin. Client agrees to provide Developer with any and all content, graphics, and other information necessary to complete the Web site within sixty (60) days of the date the Agreement is signed.
Should Client not provide Developer with all content, graphics, and other information within sixty (60) days of the date the Agreement is signed, payment in full for completed work will be due immediately and the contract will be considered completed. Upon completion of the Web site, an e-mail or letter and invoice will be sent to the Client advising the Client that the work has been completed. Final payment of the remaining 20% balance plus any additional charges incurred will due within fifteen (15) business days after delivery of this e-mail or letter and invoice. If the fifteen (15) day minimum is not met, an additional charge of 10% is due. If payment is not made within thirty (30) days of notification, simple interest will accrue on the balance owed at a rate of 18% from the date the 10% penalty was levied. Developer reserves the right to remove all Web content from the Internet if payment is not made within thirty (30) days after delivery of our completion notification.
Maintenance Agreements are negotiated on a Client by Client basis as each Client will have differing needs. This is another way the Developer seeks to help the Client control cost. No maintenance is included in this agreement. If ongoing maintenance is desired pricing will be included in an amendment to this agreement. Developer offers two kinds of maintenance agreements. In one, the Client pays a fixed monthly rate for such things as changing the price to an item, adding additional inventory, making moderate graphics changes, and coordinating the delivery of the Web site with the Host Provider. In the other agreement, the customer pays on an ‘as needed’ hourly basis.
AUTHOR REFERRAL COMMISSION PROGRAM.
The Developer recognizes ‘word-of-mouth’ advertising as our most favourable method of developing new business. As such, we want to reward customers who are pleased with our work and refer us to another individual, business, or organization. If you refer our services to another party and we ultimately establish a contract with that party, we will provide you, the Client, with one month of free maintenance service.
The Developer and the Client must work together to complete the Web site in a timely manner for both parties to remain profitable. A rough draft will be available online within two weeks after receipt of deposit. The site will be completed within three weeks after approval of a rough draft. Client agrees to provide Developer with any and all content, graphics, and other information necessary to complete the Web site within sixty (60) days of the date the Agreement is signed. Should Client not provide Developer with all content, graphics, and other information within sixty (60) days of the date the Agreement is signed, payment in full for completed work will be due immediately and the contract will be considered completed.
Cancellation of the project at the request of the Client must be made by certified letter. In the event that work is postponed or cancelled at the request of the Client by registered letter, the Developer shall have the right to retain the original 40% deposit. In the event, this amount is not sufficient to cover the Developer for time ($50 per hour) and expense already invested in the project additional payment will be due. If additional payment is due, this will be billed to the Client within 10 days of notification via registered letter to stop work.
