General Terms and Conditions of web site design, development, and support & maintenance services

The following terms and conditions apply to all web site design, development, and support & maintenance services offered by Web Age Ltd. By ordering services from Web Age Ltd you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions.

  1. Offensive Content
    Web Age Ltd reserves the right to refuse to construct a web site that we may judge as unfit due to content or otherwise. This includes, but is not limited by, sites containing adult oriented material such as pornography, sites which promote hatred towards persons belonging to any ethnic group, religion or sexual orientation and sites which infringe copyright or are contrary to UK laws.
  2. Acceptance
    The acceptance of a commission shall be deemed as a contractual agreement between the client and Web Age Ltd. Web Age Ltd will accept written confirmation by email, acceptance of a quote from our CRM software or written acceptance of a formal contract and/or service agreement as formal acceptance of a commission. By accepting a commission with Web Age Ltd, the client agrees to contract Web Age Ltd as a contractor and assumes no right over Web Age Ltd employees.
  3. Timescale
    Web Age Ltd cannot always guarantee to start work immediately on a commission but will arrange a date with the client as to when work can commence. We will provide a timescale for delivery to which we will endeavour to adhere but will also require timely feedback and supply of materials or content where required from the client.
  4. Materials
    All material, both text and images, supplied by the client and used in the construction of the client’s web site, will remain the client’s property. All such material will be assumed to be the property of the client and free to use without fear of breach of copyright laws. Clients are solely responsible for ensuring all materials do not infringe copyright and Web Age Ltd accepts no liability in this regard.
  5. Copyright & IP
    The copyright for all material provided by Web Age Ltd, such as HTML code, graphics, photographs and text, will remain the property of Web Age Ltd until such time as payment has been made in full whereupon they will become the property of the client.
  6. Compatibility
    Web Age Ltd makes every effort to design pages which display acceptably in the most popular current browsers. However, we cannot accept responsibility for pages which do not display acceptably in new versions of browsers released after publication of a project, nor do we design for legacy browsers unless explicitly requested during commission and paid for at additional cost.
  7. Search Engine Optimisation
    Unless explicitly specified as part of a project, we do not include search engine optimisation services out with the basic configuration of your website, i.e. completion of any SEO features that are an intrinsic part of the software supplied. This includes but is not limited to Meta data and SEO friendly URLs. Additional SEO consultancy is available on request at extra cost. As search engine rankings are dependent on a wide range of factors out with our control, we make no warranty or guarantee of search engine rankings.
  8. Search Engine Inclusion
    Web Age Ltd will submit a client’s website to Google at launch. No other inclusion services are included unless explicitly requested by the client. Web Age Ltd can accept no responsibility or liability if any search engine, online directory or search site, submitted to as part of a web site promotion commission, chooses not to list a client’s web site.
  9. Development & Live Environments, Publication
    Web Age Ltd may initially place the client’s website on a development server for the purposes of review and comment upon the website’s progress. When both Web Age Ltd and the client agree that the website meets the criteria agreed during the commissioning process, Web Age Ltd will invoice the client for the full or final amount due for the commission, depending on whether payment by instalments has been agreed at the outset of the project. Upon payment of this sum, Web Age Ltd will publish the website on the client’s server, or provide the source code for the site via a download for the client to upload. Unless explicitly specified by the terms of a project or requested by the client at additional cost, the development server will cease to be available after the launch of the project.
  10. Cancellation of Commission – your right to cancel
    If at any point during the Website Development Cycle a client wishes to cancel a commission or service they may do so by giving written notice by email to info@webage.co.uk. In the event of cancellation of a commission or service involving an annual or monthly contract, 1 month’s written notice is required. In all cases, a commission represents an agreement and commitment on the part of a client to engage the services and labour of Web Age Ltd for an amount commensurate to the cost of the project or service, and the acceptance of full liability for the agreed costs incurred during the period where employees of Web Age Ltd are engaged on a commission. Web Age Ltd will therefore invoice for any outstanding labour or service costs proportional to the amount of work completed on the commission. Upon payment of this sum, we agree to provide, on request, any work including code and designs, completed to the point of cancellation.
  11. Cancellation of Commission – our right to cancel
    If, during the Website Development Cycle, the client does not supply content, information or feedback required in order to complete the commission within a reasonable amount of time, and when after contact with the client we cannot ascertain a defined resumption date, Web Age Ltd will consider that the client wishes to cancel the commission. Web Age Ltd will seek to recover costs for any labour or services provided to that point. Web Age Ltd will always endeavour to ensure a professional working relationship is maintained at all times but in instances where this has broken down irreparably, we reserve the right to unilaterally withdraw from a commission. One month’s notice will be given in that instance.
  12. Payments Accepted
    Web Age Ltd requires payment by bank transfer, direct debit, PayPal, credit card or cash within 30 days of the date on the invoice. Services may be curtailed or suspended at our discretion should payment not be made within these terms.
  13. Returned Payments
    Any payment returned by the bank or credit card company will incur a £15 + VAT administration charge. This will be invoiced and will be added to the total outstanding debt owed by the customer.
  14. Maintenance after Delivery
    Web Age Ltd does not undertake to maintain or update a client’s website as part of the design or development commission. If a client wishes Web Age Ltd to maintain or update a web site as a separate commission, Web Age Ltd will negotiate with the client a maintenance contract appropriate to the amount of work required. Such contracts are payable monthly or annually in advance and will cover a specified number of hours per month, subject to agreement with the client. Web site maintenance may also be undertaken on a time and materials basis on request with work chargeable in increments of 15 minutes at our hourly rate.
  15. Sign-off & Delivery
    The client agrees that Web Age Ltd will consider that the final payment for and/or a request to deliver or publish online a project constitutes a formal sign-off and the formal conclusion of the project, signifying that the client accepts the project in all aspects. While Web Age Ltd undertake to fully test any project before delivery and always endeavour to ensure fitness for purpose, it is nonetheless incumbent on the client to ensure their own tests have been completed in full and bring any errors to our attention before delivery. Web Age will provide full guidance on the tests required but reserve the right to delay delivery where we believe that client tests have not been completed. This is to ensure that a project is in a fully operational state at launch or delivery and also to ensure Web Age are not obliged to provide remedial work once the site is in commercial operation. Should the client request the site is published regardless, no liability for loss by the client is either implied or accepted in such a scenario.
  16. Limited Warranty
    Web Age Ltd want you to be satisfied with your site and to develop an ongoing working relationship. We therefore offer a limited warranty period of 30 days after the aforementioned delivery date in which we will accept notification of bugs or errors which, in the event that the testing procedure outlined above has been accepted and followed by both parties, will be repaired free of charge. This is strictly limited to the project (design, code, software, hosting environment) that we deliver, excluding third party services such as payment gateways. We cannot, however, accept an ongoing process of change requests or corrections after delivery
  17. Price Alterations
    Web Age Ltd reserves the right to alter prices at any time without notice. If a client has commissioned any services from Web Age Ltd prior to a change in prices that commission will not be subject to any increase, but any subsequent commission may be subject to an increase.
  18. Your Statutory Rights
    By agreeing to these terms and conditions your statutory rights are not affected.
  19. Our Right to Modify these Terms
    Web Age Ltd reserves the right to change or modify any of the terms and conditions contained in this document.
