Any amount quoted for website projects, unless explicitly stated or agreed otherwise, excludes hosting of the website, domain name registering, video and image stock licenses and any additional licenses required for the operation/running of the website, outside of those agreed in the proposal.
If the Client halts work on a project, work completed shall be billed at the hourly rate and deducted from the total cost quoted. If at the time of the request for a refund. work has been completed beyond the amount covered by the initial payment. The Client shall be liable to pay for all work completed at the hourly rate stated above.
For every website project. a timescale for delivery will be provided. If the project time extends outside of the allocated timescale due to:
• Lack or delay of correspondence from the client.
• Slow or delayed delivery of content from the client.
• Changes to the initial spec/proposal by the client
An additional hourly charge may be incurred.
In the event The Client becomes unresponsive or does not respond in a timely manner Kreovox reserves the right to progress the project as they see fit in order to deliver the project within the agreed timescales. This can include progressing the project phases in accordance with the start of those phases.
Once a website project is complete, unless agreed otherwise, the client has 14 days to request any changes that relate to
• Interoperability Errors
• Small discretionary tweaks
• Spelling mistakes.
After this period, unless agreed otherwise, changes may become chargeable at an hourly rate.
After a 14-day period, if your website is not hosted on our hosting, unless agreed otherwise, any errors, downtime, detection of viruses, malware, slow loading times or any issues relating to the operation of the website or any system we install are the responsibility of the website host, we will charge an hourly rate if requested to aid in resolving any such errors.
Kreovox may offer at its discretion website maintenance work on a retainer basis.
In the case a set number of hours are agreed within this retainer. Kreovox at its discretion may roll up to 50% of the non-utilized hours onto the following month/retainer period.
Hours may only be rolled over once and not accumulated and are subject to our availability.
We recommend a minimum 3–6-month period for all SEO campaigns in order to have the time and resources to effectively achieve results. We require 30days written notice to cease or cancel any retainer work. including SEO, PPC and social media retainers.
You will still be charged for the current month and may be charged for the following month if30 days written notice is not given within the 30-day threshold for the end of the month or billable period.
Please note that at any time a search engine may change their ranking algorithm, which may result in massive fluctuations in rankings. We endeavor to allow for any changes but in some cases, rankings may be massively affected either positively or negatively, through reasons beyond our control.
Unless explicitly stated otherwise all amounts quoted in all Kreovox’s SEO quotes and invoices are monthly fees.
Please note that our SEO campaigns do not come with a guarantee of sales, enquiries or rankings. We do everything to ensure that we meet the KPl”s agreed in your SEO proposal agreement. but we cannot guarantee a specific outcome due to the nature of SEO and Search Engines.
We do not release any artwork or source code for any projects until full payment has been received. All designs, graphics and code remain the property of Kreovox until full payment for the deliverables has been received.
An additional charge may be applied if artwork files are requested in a format that can be edited (PSD, Al).
In some cases, third party licenses will be required to deliver functionality essential to the operation of your website. These may include services such as Google Maps API, Font licenses or for plugins required for the operation of the website.
Unless stated otherwise, the quoted price tor the build of your website will include licensing of third-party functionality and services for 1-year from the project signing date. Should an ongoing charge be required, we will invoice for the license around the time of the renewal date. Should you require the license be transferred to your ownership so you may pay directly, please contact us and we will arrange for this.
If your website uses a Google Map a small monthly charged will be invoiced annually to cover this cost. You will have the option in the site backend to replace this Google Maps API key with your own should you require, to avoid us invoicing you for this usage. If your site makes use of other Google API services such as locations or places, then we will contact you directly with details of your monthly usage charges.
In some cases, we may license premium fonts for use on your website. Some premium fonts such as Adobe fonts may require a small yearly charge to license the font for use on your website or domain. We highly recommend that the licenses for these fonts are transferred into your ownership, however should we continue to hold the license after 1 year from the project signing date a small monthly charge will be invoiced annually to cover the license cost
Where it is the responsibility of the client to provide content for the website we will endeavor to help facilitate and assist in populating the website with the provided content.
Once the project reaches “phase 5 content population· we will allow an additional 4-week grace period outside of the project timeframe for the client to produce any required or additional content for the website and we will assist in populating this.
Once this grace period has passed, we will progress to “Phase 6 – Testing and launch”. If the site is not ready to be launched at this point, we will host the website on our staging server, providing access and training to the client to continue populating the website. The final payment for the project will be required at this stage.
We will host the website on our staging server for up to 2 months, allowing access to the client to continue populating the website as required. We will assist in launching the site or sending a copy of the site to the client in this timeframe where requested.
Once this 2-month period expires, we will package the site up and deliver it to the client and remove the site from our staging server.
Should the site need to be hosted on the staging server for a period outside this 2-month grace period we will charge hosting fees at the required rate.
Finally, a partner that handles the heavy lifting for you.
