Terms and Conditions

By working with me you understand and agree to the following:

Summary
I will always do my best to fulfill your needs and meet your goals, but sometimes it is best to have a few simple things written down so that we both know what is what, who should do what and what happens if stuff goes wrong.

In this contract you won’t find complicated legal terms or large passages of unreadable text.

In short you are hiring me, Louise Ingram, located at PO Box 88, Merrickville, ON K0G 1N0 to complete some website install /design work.  You have chosen and we have agreed upon whether you need: 

  1. The Basic Website at $100
  2. The Custom Website at $150 or
  3. Custom Design at $60/hr

I will let you know beforehand if you request something that is going to cost more than our original agreed upon amount.

Your Hosting
I am not a web site hosting company and so I do not offer or include technical support for web site hosting, email or other services relating to web site hosting. If you do require help with anything beyond the design and development of your site, I’ll be happy to help and will charge you $60 per hour.

WordPress
WordPress is free software that runs on your hosting companies server. You can update it free of charge as new versions are released.

Your Theme
It is my intention to continue to work with Elegant Themes products and as such you will be able to update your theme free of charge so long as Elegant Themes continues their current membership offering.

At any time you have the option of creating an Elegant Themes account of your own allowing yourself the ability to update your theme should I decide to no longer use Elegant Themes at some future date.

Legal stuff
Some things are beyond my control.

I can’t guarantee that your website will offer the same look or functionality in all browsers on all platforms on all devices.  However Elegant Themes claim that Divi works with all the current major browsers.  If you should find something that does not display right in an up-to-date browser please let me know and I’ll do my best to remedy the situation.

I can’t guarantee that the functions contained in any web page templates or in a completed web site will always be error-free and so I can’t be liable to you or any third party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages arising out of the operation of or inability to operate your web site and any other web pages, even if you have advised me of the possibilities of such damages.

Copyrights
You guarantee that any elements of text, graphics, photos, designs, trademarks, or other artwork that you provide me for inclusion in the web site are either owned by your good selfs, or that you have permission to use them.

When I receive your final payment, copyright is automatically assigned as follows:
You own the graphics and other visual elements if any that I create for you for this project.
I will give you a copy of any Photoshop graphic files and you should store them really safely as I’m not required to keep them or provide any native source files that I used in making them.
You also own text content, photographs and other data you provided, unless someone else owns them.

I love to show off my work and share what I’ve have learned with other people, so I also reserve the right to display and link to your completed project as part of my portfolio and to write about the project in my blog or any other media.

Payments
I’m sure you understand how important it is as a small business that you pay the invoices that I send you promptly. As I’m also sure you’ll want to stay friends, you agree to stick tight to the following payment schedule.
50% at the beginning of the contract and 50% once the site is complete.

After Care
I want you to love your site, if you should notice any errors on my part within a period of 30 days from completion please contact me and I’ll do my very best to remedy them.  I cannot offer one on one support free of charge but do offer it at my regular hourly rate.  You can find helpful videos and information here to get you up and running so that you feel confident editing and adding new content to your site.
