Terms & Conditions

What do both parties agree to?

You: You have the authority to enter into this contract on behalf of yourself, your company or your organisation. You’ll give us the assets and information we tell you we need to complete the project. You’ll do this when we ask and provide it in the formats we ask for. You’ll review our work, provide feedback and approval in a timely manner too. Deadlines work two ways, so you’ll also be bound by dates we set together. You also agree to stick to the extra additional (if applies) payment schedule set out at the end of this contract.
Us: We have the experience and ability to do everything we’ve agreed with you and we’ll do it all in a professional and timely manner. We’ll endeavour to meet every deadline that’s set and on top of that, we’ll maintain the confidentiality of everything you give us.

Design / Development

We create designs that adapt to the capabilities of many devices and screen sizes. We create them iteratively and use predominantly HTML and CSS so we won’t waste time mocking up every template as a static visual. We may use visuals to indicate a creative direction (colour, texture and typography.) We call that ‘atmosphere.’
You’ll have plenty of opportunities to review our work and provide feedback.

Please keep in mind that any additional change in content, the appearance of the website (once it’s approved and launched) will carry an additional fee.

We’ll either share a Dropbox, Google Drive folder or Github repository or development site with you and we’ll have regular, possibly daily contact by either phone, Skype, Email or Slack.

If—at any stage—you change your mind about what you want delivered or aren’t happy with the direction our work is taking, you’ll pay us in full for the time we’ve spent working until that point and may terminate this contract.
Text content
Unless agreed separately, we’re not responsible for inputting text or images into your content management system or creating every page on your website. We can provide professional copywriting and editing services, so if you’d like us to create new content or input content for you, we’ll provide a separate estimate.

Graphics and photographs

You should supply graphic files in an editable, vector digital format. You should supply photographs in a high-resolution digital format. If you choose to buy stock photographs, we can suggest stock libraries. If you’d like us to search for photographs for you, we can provide a separate estimate.
HTML, CSS and JavaScript
We deliver pages developed from HTML markup, CSS stylesheets for styling and unobtrusive JavaScript for behaviours. Websites made by us are based on WordPress / WooCommerce or Custom CMS.

Browser testing

Browser testing no longer means attempting to make a website look the same in browsers of different capabilities or on devices with different size screens. It does mean ensuring that a person’s experience of a design should be appropriate to the capabilities of a browser or device.
We test our work in current versions of major desktop browsers including those made by Apple (Safari), Google (Chrome), Microsoft (Edge), Mozilla Firefox and Opera. We won’t test in other older browsers unless we agreed separately. If you need an enhanced design for an older browser, we can provide a separate estimate for that.
Mobile browser testing
Testing using popular smaller screen devices is essential in ensuring that a person’s experience of a design is appropriate to the capabilities of the device they’re using. We test our designs in:
iOS: Safari and Google Chrome
Android: Google Chrome
We won’t test in Opera Mini/Mobile, specific Android devices, or other mobile browsers unless we agreed separately. If you need us to test using these, we can provide a separate estimate.

Technical support

We’re not a website hosting company so we don’t offer support for website hosting, email or other services relating to hosting. However, we can recommend a trusted hosting based upon our recent work. You may already have professional hosting and you might even manage that hosting in-house; if you do, great. If you don’t, we will recommend one of our preferred hosting providers. We can set up your site on a server, plus any statistics software such as Google Analytics and will provide a separate estimate for that. Then, the updates to, and management of that server will be up to you.

Search engine optimisation (SEO)

We don’t guarantee improvements to your website’s search engine ranking, but the pages that we develop are accessible to search engines. However, our SEO prerequisites guarantee that Your website will be approved by Google and by the other search engines.

SEO Plans

If you would have been happy with our design and basic implementation of SEO prerequisites, then we can arrange an SEO fixed contract for a minimum of 3 months. This is payable every month and requires €374 / €99 in advance (depending which SEO plan).

Our SEO agreement contains:

  • Link Building
  • Buzz Marketing (word-of-mouth marketing)
  • Competition research
  • Weekly reports of your website ranking (where is your page on Google) delivered to your mailbox
  • Keyword analysis and implementation
  • Measuring the behaviour of your clients / customers to improve even more for what they are looking for.

Changes and revisions

We don’t want to limit your ability to change your mind. The price at the beginning of this contract is based on the number of weeks / hours that we estimate we’ll need to accomplish everything you’ve told us you want to achieve, but we’re happy to be flexible. If you want to change your mind or add anything new, that won’t be a problem as we’ll provide a separate estimate for those additional weeks.

Legal stuff

We’ll carry out our work in accordance with good industry practice and at the standard expected from a suitably qualified person with relevant experience. That said, we can’t guarantee that our work will be error-free and so we can’t be liable to you or any third-party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages, even if you’ve advised us of them.
Your liability to us will also be limited to the amount of fees payable under this contract and you won’t be liable to us or any third-party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages, even if we’ve advised you of them.

Payment Terms

Prices are subject to change without notice. All quoted prices here are exempt of VAT. Payments are made on a staged basis with each stage paid in advance of any work. All invoices must be paid in full within 14 days of the invoice date, except where agreed at the Developers own discretion. All payments are made on a staged basis and NO further work will commence until each staged-payment has been made.

Interests on late payments

The EU Directive on interest on late payments in commercial transactions came into force in Ireland on 8 August 2002. A payment is considered to be ‘late’ after 7 days, unless you agreed something else with the customer.
You, as a client are entitled to add compensation to the interest charged daily including bank holidays and weekends which is 10% x the overall project cost.

Lawsuit / Dispute Resolution

  • Negotiation: We want to work this out. In the event of a dispute, the Parties agree to work towards a resolution through good faith negotiation.
  • Mediation/Arbitration: If talking it over doesn’t go well, either Party may initiate mediation or binding arbitration in a forum mutually agreed to by the Parties.
  • Litigation: If litigation is necessary, this Agreement will be interpreted based on the laws of the Republic of Ireland, regardless of any conflict of law issues that may arises. The Parties agree that the dispute will be resolved at a court of competent jurisdiction in the agreed upon County.
  • Attorney’s Fees: The prevailing party, or “winner” as non-lawyers call it, will be able to recover its attorney’s fees and other reasonable costs for a dispute resolved by binding arbitration or litigation.
  • If none of the above will work then the lawsuit will be carried by our attorney in the respect and on the strength of the Irish law.

Debt Collection

The debt collectors will be assigned only by court upon a representative case from our legal attorney.
Payment schedule
We’re sure you understand how important it is as a small business that you pay the invoices that we send you promptly. As we’re also sure you’ll want to stay friends, you agree to stick tight to the following payment schedule. You can pay at any bank or kiosk or we can issue an electronically secure payment gate.

We issue invoices electronically. Our payment terms are 14 days from the date of invoice by BACS or the SWIFT international payments system. All proposals are quoted in EURO and payments will be made at the equivalent conversion rate at the date the transfer is made.

You agree to pay all charges associated with international transfers of funds. The appropriate bank account details will be printed on our electronic invoice. We reserve the right to charge interest on all overdue debts at the rate of 10% daily (overall cost of the project x 10%).

Privacy Term

Just like a parking ticket, neither of us can transfer this contract to anyone else without the other’s permission.

We both agree that we’ll adhere to all relevant laws and regulations in relation to our activities under this contract and not cause the other to breach any relevant laws or regulations.

This contract stays in place and need not be renewed. If for some reason one part of this contract becomes invalid or unenforceable, the remaining parts of it remain in place.

Although the language is simple, the intentions are serious and this contract is a legal document under exclusive jurisdiction of Brussels and Irish Court.
