So in short;
You (client), located at are hiring us (The Creative Vue) located at 11820 Miramar Pkwy, Suite 302 Miramar, FL 33025 to [design and develop a web site] for the estimated total price as outlined in our previous correspondence (invoice).
What do both parties agree to do?
You: You have the authority to enter into this contract on behalf of yourself, your company or your organization. You’ll give us everything we need to complete the project as and when and in the format we need it. You’ll review our work, provide feedback and approval in a timely manner. Deadlines work two ways, so you’ll also be bound by dates we set together. You also agree to stick to the payment schedule set out at the end of this contract.
Us: We have the experience and ability to do everything we’ve agreed with you and we’ll do it all in a professional and timely manner. We’ll endeavor to meet every deadline that’s set and on top of that we'll maintain the confidentiality of everything you give us.
The Design Process
We create clean and modern designs, that have flexible layouts and adapt to the capabilities of many devices and screen sizes. We create designs interactively and use predominantly HTML and CSS so we won’t waste time mocking up every template as a static visual. We may use static visuals to indicate a look-and-feel direction (color, texture and typography.) We call that ‘design atmosphere.’
Upon completion of web design, you have up to five business days to make any minor changes or corrections such as text or color at no additional cost to you. After this five day period, any additional change will be at additional cost to you (hourly web design rate).
Please submit your website content via email. We’re not responsible for writing any text copy or checking the accuracy of the text provided.
You should supply graphic files in an editable, vector digital format. You should supply photographs in a high resolution digital format. If you choose to buy stock photographs, we can suggest stock libraries. If you’d like us to search for photographs for you, we can provide a separate estimate for that.
We do offer hosting services for your website at an additional cost. If you need hosting services, we can arrange that for you.
Testing & Compatibility
We will not test these templates in old or abandoned browsers, for example Microsoft Internet Explorer 5, 5.5 or 6 for Windows or Mac, previous versions of Apple's Safari, Mozilla Firefox or Opera unless otherwise specified. If you need to show the same or similar visual design to visitors using these older browsers, we will charge you at the daily rate set out in our original estimate for any necessary additional code and its testing.
Most websites are completed within 4-8 weeks from the date of receipt of both payment and content (images, logo, text,etc), depending on the scope or size of the project.
We can’t guarantee that our work will be error-free and so we can’t be liable to you or any third-party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages, even if you’ve advised us of them. Finally, if any provision of this contract shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this contract and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
First, you guarantee that all elements of text, images or other artwork you provide are either owned by your good selves, or that you’ve permission to use them.
Then, when your final payment has cleared, copyright will be automatically assigned as follows:
You’ll own the visual elements that we create for this project. We’ll give you source files and finished files and you should keep them somewhere safe as we’re not required to keep a copy. You own all elements of text, images and data you provided, unless someone else owns them.
We love to show off our work and share what we’ve learned with other people, so we reserve the right, with your permission, to display and link to your project as part of our portfolio and to write about it on websites, in magazine articles and in books.
We’re sure you understand how important it is as a small business that you pay the invoices that we send you promptly. As we’re also sure you’ll want to continue doing business, you agree to abide to the following payment schedule.
In most cases a 50% good faith initial deposit and then the remaining 50% balance once the site is ready to go live. Once final payment is made, the site will go live within 48 hours. The only time there is a 100% payment due upon beginning the project is if your site is on a "non-wordpress" platform such as Shopify, WIX, etc.
This contract stays in place and need not be renewed. If for some reason one part of this contract becomes invalid or unenforceable, the remaining parts of it remain in place.
Although the language is simple, the intentions are serious and this contract is a legal document under exclusive jurisdiction of U.S. Courts.
