Rev 1.4 – Updated Feb 2023
The following terms and conditions apply to all website development / design services provided by Coastline Studio to the Client.
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.
Charges for services to be provided by Coastline Studio are defined in the project quotation that the Client receives via e-mail. Quotations are valid for a period of 30 days. Coastline Studio 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 thirty-three (33) percent of the project quotation total before the work is supplied to the Client for review. A second charge of thirty-three (33) percent is required after the development stage, with the remaining thirty-three (33) percent of the project quotation total due upon completion of the work, prior to upload to the server or release of materials.
Payment for services is due by bank transfer. Bank details will be made available on invoices.
Coastline Studio 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 Coastline Studio otherwise within ten (10) days of the date the materials are made available to the Client.
Coastline Studio 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 Coastline Studio receiving initial payment, unless a delay is specifically requested by the Client and agreed by Coastline Studio.
In return, the Client agrees to delegate a single individual as a primary contact to aid Coastline Studio with progressing the commission in a satisfactory and expedient manner.
During the project, Coastline Studio will require the Client to provide website content; text, images, movies and sound files
Coastline Studio 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 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, Apple Pages, 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. Contact us if you need clarification on this.
Invoices will be provided by Coastline Studio 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.
Coastline Studio 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 8 & 9, Google Chrome, etc.). Client agrees that Coastline Studio cannot guarantee correct functionality with all browser software across different operating systems.
Coastline Studio 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, Coastline Studio 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.
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 Coastline Studio’s Web space, Coastline Studio will, at its discretion, remove all such material from its web space. Coastline Studio 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 Coastline Studio reasonable expenses, including legal fees and costs for collection by third-party agencies, incurred by Coastline Studio in enforcing these Terms and Conditions.
Termination of services by the Client must be requested in a written notice and will be effective on receipt of such notice. E-mail or telephone requests for termination of services will not be honoured until and unless confirmed in writing. The Client will be invoiced for work completed to the date of first notice of cancellation for payment in full within thirty (30) days.
A link to Coastline Studio 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.
The Client also agrees that the website developed for the Client may be presented in Coastline Studio’s portfolio.
Social Media Marketing and Management is defined as helping a client to promote their products or services through social media channels.
Coastline Studio 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.
Coastline Studio hereby excludes itself, its Employees and or Agents from all and any liability from:
The entire liability of Coastline Studio to the Client in respect of any claim whatsoever or breach of this Agreement, whether or not arising out of negligence, shall be limited to the charges paid for the Services under this Agreement in respect of which the breach has arisen.
