TERMS & CONDITIONS
This Services Agreement (the "Agreement") contains the complete terms and conditions which govern your subscription of Website Design, Development, and other Internet-related services provided by Beach Pea Design (the "Services"). As used in this Agreement, "Beach Pea Design", "we", "our" and "us" means Beach Pea Design and "Client", "you", or "your" means you. You acknowledge that you have read the Agreement, and you agree to its terms and conditions and all policies posted on the Beach Pea Design site. As referred to in this Agreement, "Site" refers to a World Wide Web site and "Beach Pea Design" refers to the Site located at the URL https://beachpea.ca.
The following terms and conditions apply to all website development / design services provided Beach Pea Design and website users/visitors.
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 or submits payment for 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. By visiting our site and/or making any purchase or use of our services implies that you have read and accepted our terms and conditions.
Charges for services to be provided by Beach Pea Design are defined in the project quotation and/or invoice that the Client receives via e-mail. Quotations are valid for a period of 14 days. Beach Pea Design reserves the right to alter or decline to provide a quotation after expiry of the 14 days.
Unless agreed otherwise with the Client, all website design services require an advance non-refundable payment of a minimum of fifty (50) percent of the project quotation total. Clients will be billed on a monthly basis thereafter based on the work completed. A final invoice will be emailed to the client and must be paid in full prior to the public launching of the live site.
Website hosting and domain registration provided by Beach Pea Design is billed on an annual basis and must be paid in full at the time of billing. Cancellation must be provided in writing. Payments made for hosting and domain registration are non-refundable.
Payment for services is due by cheque or email bank transfer. Cheques should be made payable to Beach Pea Design and sent to Beach Pea Design. Email transfers should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
New website development projects will be quoted by Beach Pea Design based on a defined set of pages, site functions and time frames. It is the Client's responsibility to ensure the required pages, work flows, and needs are understood and listed in the quote. If details are not provided, or complexities indicated at the time the quote is prepared, but are raised later during the design process, additional costs may be due to accommodate the requirements.
For timely completion of the project, the Client must provide all requested information, media, and content in a timely manner. Any delays in providing the required information may delay the project, proposed timelines and could result in additional fees. 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. If you agree to provide us with the required information and subsequently fail to within two weeks of project commencement we reserve the right to close the project and the deposit will be forfeit.
Beach Pea Design will make all efforts to ensure the website and any scripts or programs are free of errors during development, however we cannot accept responsibility for any losses incurred due to program malfunction, the website or any part of it.
Whilst every care has been taken to ensure products are problem free and accurate, the ultimate responsibility lies with the Client in ensuring that all software is functioning correctly before use.
The Client is expected to test fully any application or programming relating to a site developed by Beach Pea Design before being made generally available for use. Where “bugs”, errors or other issues are found after the site is live, Beach Pea Design will endeavour (but is not obliged to) to correct these issues to meet the standards of function outlined in the project quote.
By employing Beach Pea Design to design and build a website you are agreeing to have your website hosted with Beach Pea Design.
