  • Terms and Conditions

The following terms and conditions apply to all website development / design services provided by Turquoise Designz Limited to the Client.

  1. Acceptance

It is not necessary for any Client to have signed an acceptance of these terms and conditions for them to apply. If a Client accepts a quote then the Client will be deemed to have satisfied themselves as to the terms applying and have accepted these terms and conditions in full.

Please read these terms and conditions carefully. Any purchase or use of our services implies that you have read and accepted our terms and conditions.

  1. Charges

Charges for services to be provided by Turquoise Designz Limited are defined in the project quotation that the Client receives via e-mail. Quotations are valid for a period of 30 days. Turquoise Designz Limited reserves the right to alter or decline to provide a quotation after expiry of the 30 days.

Unless agreed otherwise with the Client, all website design services require an advance payment of a minimum of Fifty (50) percent of the project quotation total before the work is started (this is a Non-refundable deposit). The remaining Fifty (50) percent of the project quotation total due upon completion of the work, prior to upload to the server or release of materials.

  1. Client Review

Turquoise Designz Limited will provide the Client with an opportunity to review the appearance and content of the website during the design phase and once the overall website development is completed. At the completion of the project, such materials will be deemed to be accepted and approved unless the Client notifies Turquoise Designz Limited otherwise within ten (10) days of the date the materials are made available to the Client.

  1. Turnaround Time and Content Control

Turquoise Designz Limited will install and publicly post or supply the Client’s website by the date specified in the project proposal, or at date agreed with Client upon Turquoise Designz Limited receiving initial payment, unless a delay is specifically requested by the Client and agreed by Turquoise Designz Limited.

In return, the Client agrees to delegate a single individual as a primary contact to aid Turquoise Designz Limited with progressing the commission in a satisfactory and expedient manner.

During the project, Turquoise Designz Limited will require the Client to provide website content; text, images, movies and sound files

  1. Failure to provide required website content:

Turquoise Designz Limited is a small business, to remain efficient we must ensure that work we have programmed is carried out at the scheduled time. On occasions we may have to reject offers for other work and enquiries to ensure that your work is completed at the time arranged.

This is why we ask that you provide all the required information in advance. On any occasion where progress cannot be made with your website because we have not been given the required information in the agreed time frame, and we are delayed as result, we reserve the right to impose a surcharge of up to 25%. If your project involves Search Engine Optimisation we need the text content for your site in advance so that the SEO can be planned and completed efficiently.

If you agree to provide us with the required information and subsequently fail to do within one week of project commencement we reserve the right to close the project and the balance remaining becomes payable immediately. Simply put, all the above condition says is do not give us the go ahead to start until you are ready to do so.

NOTE: Text content should be delivered as a Microsoft Word, email (or similar) document with the pages in the supplied document representing the content of the relevant pages on your website. These pages should have the same titles as the agreed website pages

Using our content management system you are able to keep your content up to date yourself.

  1. Payment

Invoices will be provided by Turquoise Designz Limited upon completion but before publishing the live website. Invoices are normally sent via email; however, the Client may choose to receive hard copy invoices. Invoices are due upon receipt. Accounts that remain unpaid thirty (30) days after the date of the invoice will be assessed a service charge in the amount of the higher of one and one-half percent (1.5%) or £30 per month of the total amount due.

  1. Additional Expenses

Client agrees to reimburse Turquoise Designz Limited for any additional expenses necessary for the completion of the work. Examples would be purchase of special fonts, stock photography etc.

  1. Web Browsers

Turquoise Designz Limited makes every effort to ensure websites are designed to be viewed by the majority of visitors. Websites are designed to work with the most popular current browsers (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer 10, Google Chrome, etc.). Client agrees that Turquoise Designz Limited cannot guarantee correct functionality with all browser software across different operating systems.

Turquoise Designz Limited cannot accept responsibility for web pages which do not display acceptably in new versions of browsers released after the website have been designed and handed over to the Client. As such, Turquoise Designz Limited reserves the right to quote for any work involved in changing the website design or website code for it to work with updated browser software.

  1. Default

Accounts unpaid thirty (30) days after the date of invoice will be considered in default. If the Client in default maintains any information or files on Turquoise Designz Limited’s Web space, Turquoise Designz Limited will, at its discretion, remove all such material from its web space. Turquoise Designz Limited is not responsible for any loss of data incurred due to the removal of the service. Removal of such material does not relieve the Client of the obligation to pay any outstanding charges assessed to the Client’s account. Cheques returned for insufficient funds will be assessed a return charge of £25 and the Client’s account will immediately be considered to be in default until full payment is received. Clients with accounts in default agree to pay Turquoise Designz Limited reasonable expenses, including legal fees and costs for collection by third-party agencies, incurred by Turquoise Designz Limited in enforcing these Terms and Conditions.

  1. Termination

Termination of services by the Client must be requested in a written notice and will be effective on receipt of such notice. E-mail requests for termination of services will be honoured. The Client will be invoiced for work completed to the date of first notice of cancellation for payment in full within thirty (30) days.

All Turquoise Designz Limited services may be used for lawful purposes only. You agree to indemnify and hold Turquoise Designz Limited harmless from any claims resulting from your use of our service that damages you or any other party.

  1. Copyright

The Client retains the copyright to data, files and graphic logos provided by the Client, and grants Turquoise Designz Limited the rights to publish and use such material. The Client must obtain permission and rights to use any information or files that are copyrighted by a third party. The Client is further responsible for granting Turquoise Designz Limited permission and rights for use of the same and agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Turquoise Designz Limited from any and all claims resulting from the Client’s negligence or inability to obtain proper copyright permissions. A contract for website design and/or placement shall be regarded as a guarantee by the Client to Turquoise Designz Limited that all such permissions and authorities have been obtained. Evidence of permissions and authorities may be requested.

  1. Standard Media Delivery

Unless otherwise specified in the project quotation, this Agreement assumes that any text will be provided by the Client in electronic format and that all photographs and other graphics will be provided in high quality in .gif, .jpeg, .png or .tiff format.

  1. Design Credit

A link to Turquoise Designz Limited will appear in either small type or by a small graphic at the bottom of the Client’s website. If a graphic is used, it will be designed to fit in with the overall site design. If a client requests that the design credit be removed, a nominal fee of 10% of the total development charges will be applied. When total development charges are less than £5000, a fixed fee of £500 will be applied. The Client also agrees that the website developed for the Client may be presented in Turquoise Designz Limited’s portfolio.

  1. Access Requirements

If the Client’s website is to be installed on a third-party server, Turquoise Designz Limited must be granted temporary read/write access to the Client’s storage directories which must be accessible via FTP. Depending on the specific nature of the project, other resources might also need to be configured on the server.

  1. Post-Placement Alterations

Turquoise Designz Limited cannot accept responsibility for any alterations caused by a third party occurring to the Client’s pages once installed. Such alterations include, but are not limited to additions, modifications or deletions.

17. Moving your website away from us

We don’t like to think of a client leaving us, but if a client should wish to maybe move their website away from us (clients who use our own web hosting), then we will be happy to assist with this transfer happening. However, we do need to make you aware of the following:

1. Any outstanding payment(s) due to us will need to be cleared first. If you have not paid for any services relating to the website, and/or domain name, web hosting, then you will need to make sure these payments are made before any transfer would be undertaken.
2. Providing all of your account charges are up to date, we will then assist you with a transfer to another web host, or web design company. They will need to contact us directly, so we can make sure the transfer completes without any unnecessary disruptions.
3. ONLY your website files and associated files that make the website work on internet will be transferred. Any work-up files, ORIGINAL images created by ourselves, help files or other non-essential file, program or software/script will not be transferred to your new provider.
4. If your website employs the use of a database then only the database content will be transferred. It will be up to your new supplier to provide the necessary database systems to import the data to.

18. General

These Terms and Conditions supersede all previous representations, understandings or agreements. The Client’s signature below or payment of an advance fee constitutes agreement to and acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. Payment online is an acceptance of our terms and conditions.

19. Social Media Management

Social Media Marketing and Management is defined as helping a client to promote their products or services through social media channels. Turquoise Designz will honour the components of your chosen social media package, providing an agreement to a minimum 3 months contract is served and monthly payments are received in advance. In the event that payment is not received on time, we regret that further work will be halted until this is rectified.

7.2    Overview of Turquoise Designz Ltd  / Hashtag Hosting Ltd Hosting Platform: Turquoise Designz Ltd  / Hashtag Hosting Ltd only uses Dell servers in its web hosting platform. Utilising state-of-the-art technology we have built a web hosting platform that is second to none. Our platform is designed in such a way that if any server fails, another server automatically and without delay takes over that server’s workload. For example, if one of our mail servers breaks down, another server automatically comes online with all the correct configuration, and takes over the work of the failed server. During this period no email is lost. As well as this, all data is stored in two large network disk arrays. Data is automatically synchronised between the arrays so that in the event of an array failing, the remaining array continues to serve data to the servers with no downtime. Each array is also backed up each night to a separate backup cluster which is then written to tape and stored offsite. Our backup procedure goes above and beyond the majority of web hosting companies.

7.3    For websites hosted under the managed basic hosting plan, Turquoise Designz Ltd  / Hashtag Hosting Ltd carries out complete server data backups as described above in

7.2 for its own use in restoring servers in the event of systems failure, but Customers are responsible for taking their own backups of their Content including all website files and databases. Customers are provided with access to a hosting control panel through which such backups may be made easily. Under the standard hosting plan, Turquoise Designz Ltd  / Hashtag Hosting Ltd does not include a data restoration service for individual customers, though this may be requested for a fee. Even though every effort is made to ensure data is backed up correctly, Turquoise Designz Ltd  / Hashtag Hosting Ltd accepts no responsibility for data loss or corruption.

7.3    For websites hosted under the managed CMS hosting plan, Turquoise Designz Ltd  / Hashtag Hosting Ltd will make and retain on behalf of the Customer a regular offsite backup of all Content including all website files and databases. Upon Customer request, a copy of these backups can be made available or copied to a specified location. Even though every effort is made to ensure data is backed up correctly, Turquoise Designz Ltd  / Hashtag Hosting Ltd accepts no responsibility for data loss or corruption. Under the enhanced CMS hosting plan, Turquoise Designz Ltd  / Hashtag Hosting Ltd will also endeavour to apply on a timely basis (and as applicable) all core Drupal, WordPress or Joomla CMS security patches and updates, as well as updates to any third-party components and plugins where requested by the Customer.
