Terms & Conditions

Introduction

We will always do our best to meet your needs and be as flexible as possible to accommodate changes in your requirements, but sometimes it is best to have a few things agreed more formally so that both parties clearly understand what is to be delivered and what our obligations and commitments to one another are. Also, if either party feels that the relationship isn’t quite working, then we need to understand what are options are for moving forwards, to help protect both parties.

We always like to keep things as simple and as clear as possible and where possible avoid the use of jargon, both legal and technical. Hopefully we’ve made our terms and conditions easy to understand and as straightforward possible. However, if there any elements that need explaining further then we will always be happy to talk you through them. Our view is that there is little point in confusing you and ‘locking’ you into something that you don’t feel comfortable with – this does not lay the foundation for an open, honest and successful relationship.

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.

Definitions

“Genetic Digital” or “We” means DGR Enterprises Ltd;

“The Client” or “You” means any person, entity or company entering into contractual arrangements with Genetic Digital for the provision of any services by Genetic Digital;

“Content” means any material including without limitation any text, images, designs, shapes, logos, videos, recordings and trademarks displayed on a Client’s Website;

“Website” or “Site” means any website created by or developed by Genetic Digital.

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. We will carry out work only when acceptance of our quote is provided either by email or by phone.  An ‘Order’ is deemed to be a written or verbal contract between Genetic Digital and the client, this includes telephone and email agreements.

What do both parties agree to do?

We have the experience and ability to perform the services you need from us and we will carry them out in a professional and timely manner. We will endeavour to meet all the deadlines set but we can’t be responsible for a missed launch date or a deadline if you have been late in supplying materials or have not approved or signed off our work promptly at any stage. On top of this, we will also maintain the confidentiality of any information that you give us and adhere to the GDPR legislation.

As our client, you have the power and ability to enter into this contract on behalf of your company or organisation. You agree to provide us with everything that we need to complete the project including text, images and any other information when we need it, and in the format that we ask for. We are a small business and 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 to ensure that your work is completed at the time arranged.

You also agree to stick to the payment schedule set out in these terms and conditions.

The Legal Bits…

We can’t guarantee that the functions or content contained in any web page templates or in a completed website will always 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 arising out of the operation of or inability to operate this web site and any other web pages, even if you have advised us of the possibilities of such damages.

If any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

Confidential Information and Security

All information, drawings, specifications, documents, contracts, design material and all other data, which either party may have disclosed and may from time to time disclose to the other party relating to its business, customers, prices, services, requirements, the website, the Services and these Terms and Conditions, including any technical specifications (the “Confidential Information”), are proprietary and confidential to the disclosing party.

Each party hereby agrees and undertakes to the other that it will use such Confidential Information and all other data solely for the purposes of these Terms and Conditions and it will not, at any time during or at any time after the completion, expiry or termination of any Agreement use or disclose the same whether directly or indirectly, to any third party without the other party’s prior written consent.

Each party further agrees and undertakes that it will not itself or through any subsidiary or agent use, sell, licence, sub-licence, create, develop or otherwise deal in any Confidential Information supplied to it by the other party or obtained while performing any Agreement. Each party will ensure that each of its employees, agents or sub- contractors will comply with the provisions contained within this Clause.

The provisions of this Clause do not apply to any confidential information or data which:

  • is or becomes freely available in the public domain through no default of the receiving party; or
  • is required to be disclosed by any court of competent jurisdiction or statutory or regulatory authority; or
  • is received from a third party which owes no duty of confidentiality in respect of such information.

Copyright & Passing of Rights

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

Once all amounts due to us from you are paid and cleared you are assigned the rights to use, as applicable, the products and services, including, the website which includes the theme, text, graphics, animation, and digital components contained within the finished web site, in accordance with these terms and conditions.

The rights to photographs, graphics and any third party items such as source code and plugins, always remain the property of their respective owners.

No such rights as described above will pass until all amounts due to us from you are paid.

We love to show off our work and share what we have learned with other people, so we also reserve the right to display a link back to our website on your completed project as well as include within our portfolio, write about the project on websites, in magazine articles and in books.

Websites

Any amount quoted for website projects, unless explicitly stated or agreed otherwise, excludes hosting of the website, domain name registering, video and image stock licenses and any additional licenses required for the operation/running of the website, outside of those agreed in the proposal. For every website project a timescale for delivery will be provided. If the project time extends outside of the allocated timescale due to:

lack or delay of correspondence from the client,
slow or delayed delivery of content from the client,
or changes to the initial spec/proposal by the client,
an additional charge may be incurred. Once a website has gone live (a state where the website is visible on a domain to the public), unless agreed otherwise, the client has 1 week to request any changes that relate to:

  • interoperability errors,
  • small tweaks (changes to be considered under one hour of labour),
  • or spelling mistakes.

After this period, unless agreed otherwise, changes to the website will become chargeable at our day rate.

After this 1 week period, if your website is not hosted on our hosting, unless agreed otherwise, any errors, downtime, detection of viruses, malware, slow loading times or any issues relating to the operation of the website or any system we install are the responsibility of the website host, we will charge a day rate if requested to aid in resolving any such errors. If you choose to host your website with another host other than Genetic Digital and during or after the project additional work or correspondence is required from Genetic Digital, the additional time will be charged at our day rate. (This includes additional time setting up any aspect of the server, correspondence to and from the server host, additional set up time as compared to using our own host).

All websites are developed to work primarily across all major browsers and platforms including other devices such as mobile phones and touchpads. However, we cannot guarantee complete and/or long term compatibility across every major browser, platform or handheld device due to updates/upgrades by their respective vendors. We also cannot guarantee compatibility in old or redundant browser software

Website Delivery

Unless an alternative billing schedule has been agreed, we require a 40% Initial Payment for the full amount quoted under “Quote” in your project proposal or previous correspondence. Only once the Initial Payment is received in full, will the development process begin. Failure to make this payment on time will cause a delay in any start date that has been initially agreed to.

Unless explicitly stated or agreed otherwise, our website build and delivery process typically works off 4 stages:

Stage 1 – Planning

The process will start with the creation of a development plan for your website and the creation of a site map. This will include information like what specific web pages will make up the site and the structure and titles for the navigation elements. Once the client is happy with the site map, we ask them to sign off on stage 1 via email.

Stages 2  – Design

Once stage 1 is signed off we will work on creating high-fidelity page designs that show exactly how the web page templates will look.

We will produce designs for the following web page templates:

  • Home page
  • Internal pages

Once the client has looked over the designs, we ask for input via email or phone. During this stage only dummy content or limited content is likely to be used to demonstrate design, operation and functionality. We then make these changes listed by the client. We allow for up to 2 revisions per template. Once the client is happy with these changes, we ask them to sign off on stage 2 via email.

This effectively ends the stage at which large design changes can be made to the website.

Stage 3  – Development & Content Inclusion

This is the stage in which we turn the designs into physical web pages and develop a fully functioning beta site on our development/testing server.

This is the stage in which all approved/signed-off content will be added to each web page. Please note that unless it’s agreed that copywriting, photography or stock image sourcing will be performed it is the client’s responsibility to produce all content for the website. We appreciate this can be a lengthy process so we urge all our clients to make sure they are prepared to deliver all website content within the project time frame. If the project is delayed due to awaiting delivery of content from the client, an additional fee may be incurred.

We will share a beta site URL with the client so the client can review the site during development and request small/minor content tweaks and fine-tuning to the web pages.

Once all content has been added and the minor changes have been implemented the client is then asked to sign off on stage 3 via email. This effectively ends the stage at which content or styling changes can be made to the website. This is due to interoperability testing that is required to ensure the correct operation of the website across browsers and devices. To make further design or content changes after testing would then require re-testing, incurring additional time, labour and costing.

If we do not hear back from you within 21 days from the date in which sign off of stage 3 or feedback on the beta site has been requested, we will assume that no further changes are required and we will have the right to progress to stage 4 and invoice for the remaining balance once the site has been tested.

At the end of the stage 3 the website displayed on the test URL is effectively the final version.

Stage 4 – Testing and Launch

Once stage 3 is signed off we start website compatibility and full site testing. At the end of the testing stage the client is required to pay the remaining 60% of the total project value plus any additional fees that were agreed during the project. As soon as the remaining balance is received in full a launch date and time will be agreed with the client. Once the site is launched we allow a 2-week grace period for the client to request any changes that relate to:

  • Compatibility errors
  • Small tweaks (changes that take no longer than 1 hour of our time)
  • Spelling mistakes

Outside of this grace period, unless agreed otherwise, changes to the website will become chargeable at our day rate. If we haven’t already done so, options for ongoing support will be discussed at this stage.

Genetic Digital cannot be held liable for any missed launch date or deadline, if the client has been late in supplying materials, or has not approved or signed off work on ­time, at any stage.

Compatibility

Our compatibility testing performed on websites we build is exclusive to the most current browsers and versions, tablets, and phones that are above 1% usage worldwide only.

We will ensure our code is compliant and will render in the most current browsers. Not all browsers work well with modern code so we do exclude old browsers from our testing. The latest versions of popular browsers are supported but previous versions are not. Although the site will still work in older browsers we do not offer full testing and support for these or user-based zoom settings, unless it is requested. If it is essential we will charge an additional fee for this.

Website Maintenance & Updates

Contracted Clients

Where we have been asked to provide a website maintenance service the following terms will apply.

Website maintenance is invoiced in advance for a minimum of a 1-year period, unless agreed otherwise.

You may pay for maintenance monthly, we will require written notice in advance should you want to opt for monthly billing, a 30% admin charge will be added to the monthly invoices. (this is to cover time and labour of processing 12 invoices instead of 1 invoice). If you wish to cancel a monthly website maintenance plan, we require 30 days written notice. We do not offer refunds for any hosting fees paid in advance.

Website maintenance will delivered per calendar month, starting the 1st day of each month. Our standard maintenance service provides you with a maximum of one hour of support per month.

Maintenance hours do not roll over each month and any unused maintenance hours for a month are ‘lost’ and not accrued or redeemable against subsequent months.

If a request for additional work comes through that cannot be delivered within the allotted time that we have quoted to deliver as part of the website maintenance package then that work can either be scheduled into the next calendar month of maintenance or we can provide you with a quote to deliver the work sooner, at our current rates.

What IS included in this Agreement and defined as ‘standard website maintenance’:

  • Guidance on the use of the Website and CMS.
  • Edit, revise, update or create new textual/minor graphical content
  • Pro-active monitoring of Content Management Systems and plugins. Module code frequently requires patching to ensure they remain secure. Security lists are monitored and necessary patches identified, tested and implemented:

    • Assess criticality and mitigating factors of alert notifications and respond accordingly

Exclusions: What is NOT included in this Agreement:

  • Content management system (CMS) design or integration including but not limited to blogs, shopping carts and web forums. These require a separate design and development quotation and agreement.
  • any creation, design or development of any new imagery, video, website copy, web pages, templates, bespoke code and integrations for the Website.

Any other tasks or any revisions, additions or redesigns requested by The Client that are not specified in the maintenance quote or that fall outside the allotted time in any one month shall be considered “additional” and require a separate quote by Genetic Digital and additional payment by The Client.

Updates for Non-Contracted Clients

Where we have been asked to deliver any website, digital marketing or app updates and no monthly retainer or maintenance contract is in place, the following terms will apply.

  • Any change requests or updates will need be quoted for in advance. Work will be prioritised based on current workloads with contracted clients taking priority over non-contracted clients.
  • Payment terms for the updates will be defined during the quotation process.
  • The minimum billing time is 1 hour

Hosting

Hosting is invoiced in advance for a minimum of a 1-year period, unless agreed otherwise.

You may pay for hosting monthly, we will require written notice in advance should you want to opt for monthly billing, a 30% admin charge will be added to the monthly invoices. (this is to cover time and labour of processing 12 invoices instead of 1 invoice).

If you wish to cancel or move your hosting, we require 30 days written notice. We do not offer refunds for any hosting fees paid in advance.

In no circumstances do we release any server login details to anyone outside of Genetic Digital (this excludes CMS login details).

There may be a fee to provide these files and if any outstanding invoices remain on your account we reserve the right to not release any files until all outstanding amounts are settled.

Our standard Website hosting allows 1GB of server hard drive space and 50GB of bandwidth.  If your website surpasses this limit an additional hosting charge may be applied, we will notify you via email if this is the case.

If your website or any script/file/resource associated with your website utilises a large amount of server CPU or RAM, additional work may be required to re-allocate your website to another host or optimise your files (you will be notified and this may be charged at an hourly rate).

Failure to pay hosting fees within the stated terms on your invoice may result in suspension of the hosting service. After 90 days if payment is not received all services will be suspended and unpaid accounts will lead to County Court Proceedings being issued.

Uptime

Genetic Digital’s server providers endeavour to provide 99.99% service uptime guarantee, however, we cannot accept commercial responsibility for any downtime in service or lost emails.

All support times are in line with working hours of Monday to Friday 9 am to 4 pm. Support will be provided within 48 hours of any issue arising unless an SLA has been agreed. Times will then fall in line with that agreement.

Our service providers carry out periodic health and wellness maintenance to our servers and data centre facilities which are generally labelled as Scheduled Maintenance. These actions sometimes cause periodic service disruption which they avoid whenever possible. Generally, such actions are conducted at off-peak hours to avoid any noticeable impact of service disruption. We are notified prior to an action being taken which we will notify customers of by email if deemed as a major disruption.

We would like to remind all customers that Scheduled Maintenance is a necessary and vital aspect of web hosting which ensures long term uptime and reliability of your site.

Back-Ups

We maintain current backups of your site’s data on a daily basis. These backups are performed daily.

We provide a backup service for your site, however, we cannot accept commercial responsibility for any data that is lost between these hours or failure of our backup mechanism. We will restore your site from backup without charge.

Hosting Support

In the case when a problem with your website or email arises, if you’re hosting is being delivered through Genetic Digital you may notify us of the error via email and we will work to resolve any issues.

In the case where an error arises from internal errors we will do our best to resolve any issues inclusive of the monthly hosting cost.

In the case where an error arises through a circumstance caused by the client, an additional charge to resolve the issues may be applied. This may be due to:

  • excessive server load – we will do our best to resolve any issues inclusive of the monthly hosting cost.
  • a modification made by the client – an additional charge to resolve the issue may be applied.

Domains

In the case that Genetic Digital acts on behalf of a client to register a domain the domain will be registered using domain privacy and set to auto renew on expiry.

It is the client’s responsibility to inform Genetic Digital if they wish or intend to not renew the domain registration, otherwise the domain will be automatically renewed.

If the client wishes to transfer the domain away from Genetic Digital’s registration service, a fee may be incurred.

If you choose to pause or cancel your SEO campaign there is no guarantee that any rankings or traffic increases achieved will remain. There is a high possibility that they will remain for many months after the SEO campaign is paused or cancelled, but we do not guarantee this.

Please note that at any time a search engine may change their ranking algorithm, which may result in massive fluctuations in rankings. We do our best to allow for any changes but in some cases rankings may be massively affected either positively or negatively, through reasons beyond our control.

Unless explicitly stated otherwise all amounts quoted in all Genetic Digital’s SEO quotes and invoices are monthly fees and are paid monthly in advance.

Please note that our SEO and digital marketing campaigns do not come with a guarantee of sales, enquiries or rankings. We do everything to ensure that we meet the KPI’s agreed in your SEO proposal /agreement, but we cannot guarantee a specific outcome due to the nature of SEO and Search Engines.

Standard payment terms

At the start of the project, we will invoice you for 40% (unless an alternative payment plan is otherwise agreed by both parties) of the total project fee. Once the project is completed we will issue an invoice for the balance of the total project cost.

Unless otherwise stated, our standard payment terms are 14 days. We are sure you understand how important it is as a small business that you pay the invoices that we send you promptly. Unless stated or agreed otherwise you must make payment within 14 days of receipt of any invoices.

Failure to do so will result in an interest charge of 4.5% per year above the base rate of Natwest Bank under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 and compensation arising from late payment under section 5A of the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.
