  • The client must recognise that at times there may be unforeseen circumstances that will delay the development process, particularly with reference to the integration of third party software.

Client Obligations

 

  • The Client will not allow, permit or require the design to include, publish, link to or otherwise broadcast or disseminate, whether directly or indirectly, any material that is indecent obscene immoral offensive defamatory or otherwise unlawful in any form whatsoever and should ADM Web Studios consider the Client to be in breach of this condition or any part thereof, we may terminate the Project Agreement without compensation to the Client.

These pages should have the same titles as the agreed website/promotional material pages.

Client Caused Delays – Failure to provide required project content/material

Website Design & Development

 

Development

 

  • All websites developed by ADM Web Studios are Mobile/Tablet Responsive in design. When a website is responsive, the layout and/or content responds (or, adapts) based on the size of the screen it’s presented on. A responsive website automatically changes to fit the device you’re viewing it on.
  • The Client agrees that a HTML page built from a graphic design may not exactly match the original design because of the difference between the display in design software and the rendering of HTML code by Internet browser software. ADM Web Studios agrees to try and match the design as closely as is possible when building the code.
  • All Content Managed websites are configured to work on ADM Web Studios web servers. Where Client’s wish to use web hosting of their preference other than our web hosting, then the Client must ensure their chosen server has the following recommended requirements (PHP v5.6 or greater, MySQL 5.6 or greater, Apache 2.4 +, The mod_rewrite Apache module,  Microsoft IIS 7). ADM Web Studios can help setup the website on the Client’s chosen server, but cannot guarantee compatibility.
  • Any Client wishing to use third party web servers will be responsible for having it configured so that it can be used on the server of their choice. ADM Web Studios accepts no responsibility for the configuration and any costs incurred by the Client.
  • ADM Web Studios may also request that Client change the type of hosting account used if that account is deemed to be unacceptable because of poor service, lack of recommended requirements or in any other way insufficient to support the website.
  • ADM Web Studios can only develop websites to be as secure as reasonably possible at the time of delivery and cannot offer indemnity against future threats or developments.
  • On receipt of final payment, ADM Web Studios will upload and publish the website on the Client’s server and submit the website’s domain names for inclusion in the Search Engines.

 

Search Engine Submissions

 

  • ADM Web Studios will submit your website to a number of search engines, including Google, Yahoo! and MSN. However, it can take many weeks for your website to appear in the search results – this is normal. We cannot guarantee top level rankings for your website, although we will use our knowledge and experience in Search Engine Optimisation to gain the best results possible.

 

Content

 

  • ADM Web Studios will place the Client’s website on ADM Web Studios web server during development stage of the website design process in order that the Client may view and comment upon the website’s progress. It is the responsibility of the Client to test the functionality, read and check all text copy, as well as approve the design and images used.
  • The Client must provide the material for inclusion in the project as set out in the proposal (including text content, photographs, FTP access, design feedback etc.)
  • Text content for inclusion in the project must be provided 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.
  • ADM Web Studios can provide legal disclaimers and privacy policies; but it is the responsibility of the Client to confirm with their own legal advisers that these meet their individual requirements as ADM Web Studios accepts no responsibility for their accuracy, relevance or currency.

 

E-commerce

 

  • There are sometimes laws and taxes which affect Internet e-commerce. ADM Web Studios can offer advice on such matters, but the Client agrees that it is their responsibility to comply with such laws and will hold harmless, protect, and defend ADM Web Studios and its suppliers from any claim, suit, penalty, tax, or tariff arising from the Client’s exercise of Internet e-commerce.
  • ADM Web Studios can offer advice on the suitability of various Merchant Gateways and Online Payment Providers, but the Client agrees that it is their responsibility to investigate the advantages and disadvantages of any merchant provider, and to establish the suitability of the merchant provider for their needs.
  • When a merchant provider is chosen, the Client is responsible for establishing a suitable account and supplying details of this account to ADM Web Studios so that the payment method can be integrated with the website’s e-commerce system.

 


 

Website Support & Maintenance

 

  • ADM Web Studios does not undertake to maintain or update a Client’s website as part of project. However, minor modifications and corrections requested within a two-week period up to an average of one hour per page, including updating links and making minor changes to a sentence or paragraph will be carried out FREE of charge.
  • Ongoing Client support is provided for any help or advice the client may need. FREE continual ongoing telephone and email support is provided after the completion of the website to ensure the continuing success of your website. Please note – if the help is deemed as an update, then this will require an update fee.
  • Clients using a website with an integrated Content Management System (CMS) are be able to update the website themselves, using the provided tutorial documents or training session. ADM Web Studios cannot accept responsibility for any alterations occurring to the website carried out by the client or a third party once the website has been completed and handed over to the client. Such alterations include, but are not limited to additions, modifications or deletions. If a Client needs help with making or fixing alterations to the website, then the scale of the help or work required will deem whether the support if free or charged for.
  • If a Client wishes ADM Web Studios to maintain or update a website as a separate commission, ADM Web Studios will either bill per hour or negotiate with the Client a website maintenance plan appropriate to the amount of work required.
  • No other parties shall have the right to modify the website during the maintenance period.

ADM Web Studios will advise clients on any requested work that falls within these bounds.

 


 

Web Browsers

 

  • ADM Web Studios makes every effort to ensure websites are designed to be viewed by the majority of visitors. ADM Web Studios develops websites to work with the most popular modern browsers (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Opera etc.). The Client agrees that ADM Web Studios cannot guarantee correct functionality with all browser software versions across different operating systems.
  • ADM Web Studios cannot accept responsibility for web pages which do not display acceptably in new versions of browsers released after the website have been completed and handed over to the Client. As such, ADM Web Studios 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.
  • Also, ADM Web Studios cannot accept responsibility for web pages which do not display acceptably in outdated web browsers due to these browsers not recognising the web technology advancements used in modern websites. However, to help with this issue, ADM Web Studios will add a plug-in to the website to help move your users and the rest of the web away from their outdated web browsers. If a user is running an outdated browser that is not supported by your website, they will simply receive a pop-up window that prompts them to upgrade their browser.
    • The following message is displayed for your users to see:“You are using an outdated web browser that is not supported by this website. This means that some functionality may not work as intended. This may result in strange behaviours when browsing around. Use or upgrade/install one of the following browsers to take full advantage of this website. – Thank you!”(it will display links to the latest browser versions of Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, and Internet Explorer & Edge)

Investigation Charges

Where appropriate/possible, an estimate of the total cost will be given before any work is started. We therefore suggest that ADM Web Studios is only contacted after the Client and their IT professional/advisor have established that any problems are not due to you or your systems.

 

Security

 

  • Any access to other networks connected to ADM Web Studios or our suppliers must comply with the rules appropriate for those other networks.
  • While ADM Web Studios and our suppliers will use every reasonable endeavour to ensure the integrity and security of the Server, neither we nor our suppliers guarantee that the Server will be free from unauthorised users or hackers and neither we nor our suppliers shall be under any liability for non-receipt or misrouting of email or web traffic, or for any other failure of email or websites.

  • If you do not wish to renew the hosting and would like to move your website to a third-party hosting provider, then we will make the website files and associated data available to you free of charge on request and the domain name can be transferred to your registrar account. Should you require us to upload and configure the website and domain name to a third-party server, then this work will be subject to a charge.Note: We cannot guarantee or accept any liability whatsoever for downtime associated with the transfer process, nor can we guarantee that your existing website “as it is” will work flawlessly on another web hosting server. You will need to make sure with your new provider that they will be able to ensure that your website files are compatible with their own specific hosting system.
  • The Client agrees that if at any time their contact details, including email address, change, it is their responsibility to contact ADM and update their contact details. Failure to do so may mean that renewal invoices for the domain name and hosting services are not received by the Client.

 

Termination/Suspension

 

  • We monitor our servers very closely to ensure that all users on the server are not affecting the service for other clients. Therefore you agree that should we determine that your service is affecting the service of others, that we may suspend, migrate, block using a firewall or otherwise stop any part of or the entirety of your account. You further agree that this may be for an indefinite period of time while the issue is investigated and that you will act upon our recommendations. Such usage includes but is not limited to causing high CPU loads, excessive use of Apache or MySQL services, deployment of banned scripts, flooding the mail server with excessive numbers of emails, causing the mail server to be blacklisted, uploading banned or compromised content, and scheduling of tasks during busy periods.
  • ADM Web Studios expressly reserves the right to terminate or suspend your subscription without prior notice should you fail to comply with any clause within these Terms and Conditions or should ADM Web Studios or our suppliers deem such action necessary where legal proceedings are threatened or issued regarding the form or content of your web pages and in such circumstances ADM Web Studios will confirm such termination or suspension by subsequent notice.
  • Where ADM Web Studios or our suppliers terminate, or suspend your service in reliance upon your breach of Agreement, or you terminate your service, you will not be entitled to any refund of any unused part of your service.

Domain Name Registration

 

  • ADM Web Studios may register domain names on behalf of the Client. Payment and renewal of those domain names is the responsibility of the Client. The loss, cancellation or otherwise of the domain brought about by late or non-payment is not the responsibility of ADM Web Studios. The Client should keep a record of the due dates for payment to ensure that payment is received in good time.
  • Charges for domain registrations are non-refundable once a domain name has been registered.
  • When you register a domain name, it is registered to you for a certain number of years i.e., until its Registration term expires. If you plan to continue using it beyond its Expiry Date, then you need to renew it.
  • Expiration of a domain name can result in service disruption and loss of domain.
  • For all domain name registrations, you are entering into a contract with one or more registration authorities and their terms and conditions apply.
  • A domain name is registered for a minimum period of 1 year, after which time it will need to be reregistered/repurchased. We will contact you in advance of the renewal date to inform you if you wish to renew before it expires.
  • Domain name prices may change from time to time and the renewal amount will be set as the price of the current domain name price.
  • Account renewal reminders will be sent by email in advance of renewal date (30 days, 7 days and the day of renewal).
  • Whenever a particular domain name is not Renewed till the Expiry Date, it would slip into the Renewal Grace Period. All such domain names would be put on a temporary commercial Parking Page, which would indicate that the domain name has expired. During this period, any website and mails associated with the domain name would stop working.
  • If a domain name is not Renewed within the Renewal Grace Period, it would be queued for deletion at the end of the Renewal Grace Period and subsequently Deleted.Once a domain name is Deleted, it would generally slip into the Redemption Grace Period only under the following circumstances:
    • Domain name was manually Deleted by ADM Web Studios at the request of the Client.
    • Domain name was automatically Deleted by our System as the domain name had Expired and was not Renewed until the end of its Renewal Grace Period.Redeeming a domain name is costly, time consuming and generally a manual process. The Redemption Grace Period is generally of 30 days after the domain name is Deleted and during this period, only the current Registrar of the domain name can Redeem the domain name. The cost to resort/redeem is domain specific and will be advised to the Client at the time of restore/redemption request.If the domain name is not Redeemed during this period, then it would move to the Pending Delete period for 5 days. In this status, the domain name cannot be Redeemed and after this period, the domain name would be available for fresh Registration.
  • You acknowledge that any dispute arising out of the use of any domain name will be resolved by the registration authorities.
  • The Client agrees that if at any time their contact details, including email address, change, it is their responsibility to contact ADM and update their contact details. Failure to do so may mean that renewal invoices for the domain name and hosting services are not received by the Client.
