3. The Customer shall be issued with a password or passwords to access the services and shall take all reasonable steps to keep such passwords private and confidential and ensure that it does not become known to other persons. If the password becomes known to any other person, the Customer will immediately inform the provider and the password will immediately be changed. The provider or Webage Ltd may change the Customer’s password from time to time at their discretion without prior notice.

4. The Customer shall not use the services: for transmission of computer viruses; for transmission of any material which is defamatory, offensive or abusive or of an obscene or menacing character, or which may cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety, or for the posting of any such material to bulletin boards or news groups; in a manner which constitutes a violation or infringement of the rights of any person, firm or company (including, but not limited to any intellectual property rights); for the transmission of bulk mail in any form (whether it has occurred through intentional misuse, such as sending unsolicited email marketing, or if it has occurred unintentionally, such as through malware, computer viruses and any other exploits of a website or computer, whether part of our network or external to it). The definition of bulk mail shall be judged in terms of the negative effects (including, but not limited to, excessive use of resources or blacklisting) that may occur in such an incident. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate services and take any other steps we deem necessary at our sole discretion and without notice where such activity harms the reputation of our network and/or infringes on our ability to deliver services to other clients. It is the client’s responsibility to take all reasonable measures (including but not limited to, ensuring websites and software are kept up to date, passwords kept secure and any connected devices are protected by anti-virus or anti-malware to prevent such exploits taking place). In the event of such an exploit we do not accept responsibility for providing any assistance to restore affected devices, for example to re-configure an email client with a new password, and will only restore service where we believe the client has taken all reasonable measures to remove the exploit and ensure they comply with these terms.

    1. These terms shall remain in full force during the length of the term of Your domain name registration(s) as selected, recorded, and paid for upon registration of the domain name. Should You choose to renew or otherwise lengthen the term of Your domain name registration, then these terms and conditions will apply.
    2. To ensure Your domains are not lost We operate a positive renewal system on all Our domains. Your domain will automatically renew for the term it was registered for unless You opt-out of this Service through Your control panel or update the renewal period prior to any renewal. This is not refundable and it is Your responsibility to ensure valid contact and payment details are on Your account at all times. Failure can lead to suspension.
    3. Our domain renewal process is automated; however, it is Your responsibility to check that Your renewal has been successful within one month of the renewal date. You will automatically be charged for the renewal of the domain prior to its expiry if you have valid card payment details on your account; otherwise it is your responsibility to ensure timely payment by BACS or where paying by Direct Debit, to ensure the payment has been completed in time. The domain will not be renewed without valid payment prior to the expiry date.
    4. For .uk domains You can check that Your renewal has been successful by using Nominet’s WHOIS search at https://www.nominet.uk/whois, and for all other domains we recommend using the https://whois.icann.org/en website domain lookup facility to see the updated expiry date.
    5. Ownership of data
      1. You agree and acknowledge that We owns the following:
        (a) all database, compilation, collective and similar right, title and interests worldwide in the domain name database;
        (b) all information and derivative works generated from the domain name database; and
        (c) information for the registrations for which We acts as the registrar including:
        (d) the original creation date of the registration;
        (e) the expiration date of the registration;

    6. Transfer of ownership
      1. The person named as Registrant shall be the “Registered Name Holder.” The person named as “account contact” at the time the controlling account was secured shall be deemed the designate of the Registrant with the authority to manage the domain name. Registrant agrees that prior to transferring ownership of the domain name to another person (the “Transferee”) Registrant shall require the Transferee to agree, in writing to be bound by all the terms. If the Transferee fails to be bound in a reasonable fashion (as determine by Tucows in its sole discretion) to these terms, any such transfer will be null and void. Registrant explicitly authorises Tucows to act as their Designated Agent, as stipulated by the ICANN Transfer Policy, to approve a Change of Registrant on their behalf. Upon making changes to the registrant first name, last name, company name and/or email address, a 60 day transfer lock will be applied to the domain registration.
      2. For UK domain names the transfer of ownership can be actioned via the Our control panel by the person named as account contact at the time the controlling account was secured who shall be deemed the designate of the Registrant with the authority to manage the domain name. The registrant shall be required to agree, in writing to be bound by these terms and conditions.
    7. Domain name dispute policy
      1. You agree to be bound by the Domain Name Dispute Policy (the “Dispute Policy”), as amended from time to time, which is hereby incorporated and made a part of these terms by reference.
      2. The Dispute Policy governs any dispute between You and any party other than Us over the registration and use of the domain name. The specific disputes which are subject to the Dispute Policy are contained in the Dispute Policy. You agree that You will be subject to the provisions specified in the Dispute Policy in effect at the time the domain name registration is disputed by a third party.

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 a 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 1) written confirmation by email, 2) acceptance and/or payment of a quote or invoice from our CRM software or 3) 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 the publication of a project, nor do we design for legacy browsers unless explicitly requested during the commission phase 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 Metadata 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 an 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 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. Accepted payment methods are direct debit, credit or debit card or PayPal. Making payment by any other method may delay renewal of the client’s services.
  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. Rates
    Our rate for all labour supplied is £75 per hour, excluding VAT. Charges are made in 15 minute increments with a minimum charge of 15 minutes.  Clients should indicate in writing along with any support request if a cap should be placed on time or cost. Otherwise, charges will accrue in accordance to the time required to fulfil the requested work. Fixed price quotations are also available on request. Clients who are unsure if their request is chargeable or not should indicate so in their support request – by email to support@webage.co.uk or by opening a ticket via the client area at https://clients.webage.net. This will enable us to clarify costs before any work commences.
  18. 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.
  19. Your Statutory Rights
    By agreeing to these terms and conditions your statutory rights are not affected.
  20. 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.
