Website Maintenance | Content Management | Ad Hoc Support & Disclaimer
ClientWave offers an optional website maintenance support agreement, the details of which can be viewed and downloaded for your consideration. It should be noted that a current (“CMA”) covers all amendments to existing navigational structures and previously published webpages and where the main navigation requires amendment resulting in the development and publishing of additional website pages, the production of such may incur additional charges.
Should the client not wish to take up ClientWave’s website maintenance agreement, website maintenance and support services are offered at £50 + VAT per hour.It should be noted that ClientWave develops websites optimised for visitors using current versions of leading browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, FireFox and Safari.
In no event shall ClientWave be liable to the client or any third party for any damages, including any lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages arising from the operation of or inability to operate delivered web pages or website, even when / if ClientWave has been advised of the possibility of such damages.If any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
Amendments to Content
The client agrees to ensure that submitted content is complete and final prior to any agreed go-live time / date. The time required to make substantial changes to content, submitted by the client, after the web pages have been constructed and the website has been launched (“go-live”) will be deemed to be additional and billed (in the absence of a maintenance agreement), at the hourly rate as defined within the terms and services levels offered withing the Content Managament Agreement (“CMA”) above.
Web Hosting and Email Services
The client understands that any web hosting services require a separate contract with the client’s choice or with ClientWave. The client agrees to use ClientWave hosting which allows ClientWave full access to the website via ftp. The client further understands that if the website hosting is not supplied by ClientWave that certain functions may not work as expected and providing a substitute will incur additional charges.ClientWave’s website hosting agreement also provides the setup of up to five email accounts. The email accounts may be accessed using the webmail logins provided by ClientWave. ClientWave will also provide the information necessary to access email accounts via an email client such as Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express or Eudora. ClientWave will not however be held responsible for any failure to send / receive email via a third party email client due to incorrect PC / Laptop or internet service provider (ISP) configurations.In no event shall ClientWave be liable to the client or any third party for any damages, including any lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages arising from the operation of or inability to operate ClientWave hosted web pages or website, even when / if ClientWave has been advised of the possibility of such damages.If any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
Completion Dates and Client Sign-Off
ClientWave and the client must collaborate regularly to complete the website in a timely manner. We agree to resource the design and development of the website to complete the website no later than 30 days from the date of the clients authorisation to proceed ( verbal, email or in writing ).If copy writing services are not being sought from ClientWave and the client does not supply ClientWave with complete text and graphics content for all web pages agreed within six weeks of the date that the agreement was made, the entire amount of the contract becomes due and payable.If the client has not submitted complete text and graphics content within two months after the date that the agreement was made, an additional continuation fee of 10% of the total contract price will also be assessed each month until the website is completed.
Payment Terms & Deposit
In order to secure the resources required to deliver a website ClientWave will require the payment of a resource allocation deposit. The amount of the deposit will be commensurate with the total value of the project and this amount will be made clear with the quotation element of ClientWave’s proposal.
Should ClientWave fail to meet the clients expectation when considered in conjunction with either written or verbal agreements at any point prior to the initial design sign-off phase ( not applicable to templated or themed website delivery as by the nature of the templated / themed design; the “design” is inherently accepted once the templated / theme has been selected by the client – please also see below), the deposit will be refunded in full.
However, should the Client for whatever reason fail to respond to ClientWave’s requests for content or constructive feedback via telephone or email once ClientWave has received confirmation to proceed with the initial stages of the design and development process, ClientWave reserves the right to take reasonable costs from any deposits received. Should ClientWave’s costs exceed any deposits received in this regard; ClientWave may invoice the Client for additional costs where appropriate.
Once the client has agreed the basic design and confirmed that they would like ClientWave to proceed with the development of the website / cart based on that proposed design. The deposit will not be returned but will be deducted from the final balance of payments.Where a templated or (“themed”) website is requested – the “proposed design” is deemed to have been accepted as of the date of the clients authorisation to proceed ( verbal, email or in writing ).
Any determination as to the refund of deposits paid and / or any request for any such deposit to be refunded will in each and every case be concluded on the basis of what each party believes to be fair and reasonable when adjudicated in conjunction with previously stated terms and conditions.Unless payment terms have been agreed, full payment must be received on or before the agreed “go-live” date.
Should it ever be the case that both ClientWave and the Client agree that all content received from the Client has been published to a new website in accordance with their directives the new website will be deemed to ready to go-live. It is at this point that the balance of accounts must be settled prior to the new website being launched “live”.If the remainder of the balance remain outstanding for more than 14 days after this agreement has been reached then ClientWave reserves the right to either propose a scheduled payment plan or sell the respective website design and structure to another Client.
Once this decision has been made the Client will have no recall or any form of ownership over the respective website and any deposits received from the Client is respect of this agreement will be used to offset ClientWave’s losses.It will be the responsibility of the Client to ensure that appropriate funds are available to settle the balance of account in or around the envisaged go-live date.
Equally should it be the case that ClientWave currently supplies products and / or services to any Client that is unable to settle the balance of any accounts as and when they fall due, any such product or service supply may be suspended or terminated until such time as payment agreements have been reached.
Use of Third Party Contractors
ClientWave reserves the right to assign subcontractors to any project where in doing so ClientWave is able to deliver the requisite functionality or where the requisite skills are unavailable amongst current ClientWave designers or developers.
General Copyrights and Trademarks
The client represents to ClientWave and unconditionally guarantees that any elements of text, graphics, photos, designs, trademarks, or other artwork furnished to ClientWave for inclusion in web pages are owned by the client, or that the client has permission from the rightful owner to use each of these elements, and will hold harmless, protect, and defend ClientWave and its subcontractors from any claim or suit arising from the use of such elements furnished by the client.
