(ii) executes a separate agreement with Philippines Web Design, or (iii) makes any
payment to Philippines Web Design on account of Services (any such Customer, having
done any of the foregoing, being deemed to have signed an agreement (“Agreement”),
which shall be deemed, in all cases, to include the terms and conditions
set forth herein). Each Agreement shall stipulate the exact details of Services
to be provided, all of which shall be governed by and subject to the terms
and conditions set forth below. These terms and conditions shall be deemed
to be incorporated by reference into each Agreement.
The approval for the work to commence and payment of the advance fee indicates
that the client accepts the terms and conditions outlined in this document.
(including Correspondence Via E-Mail)
Philippines Web Design Intellectual Copyright:
Philippines Web Design holds intellectual copyright of any material, including source
code and original images created for the client until payment of the final
invoice. At this time we will transfer this intellectual copyright to the
Clients Responsibilities with Regard to Copyright:
In situations where the client provides images, text, animations, layouts
or any other content for their website they are legally responsible for
ensuring that this material does not infringe any copyright.
Certain images provided by Philippines Web Design may have been purchased under licence
from stock image suppliers. These images are generally only licensed for
use on a website. The licence may not permit them to be used in publicity
material. The website owner is legally responsible for ensuring that this
does not happen. If you wish to use any images from the site for other purposes
please contact us for clarification.
All third party costs arising from the registration of a domain name shall
be met by the Client. Philippines Web Design recommend that clients register their
own domain names so that they have full ownership of these but where we
have registered a domain name on the client’s behalf we agree to transfer
this domain name to the client immediately upon request and without charge.
Search Engine Promotion:
If Search Engine Optimisation has been agreed, the client must be aware
that Philippines Web Design is not responsible for ongoing web site promotion. Should
the client require the site to be promoted on an ongoing basis a separate
contract must be agreed. The order in which websites are ranked in the natural
search results is controlled by the search engines. While we can optimize
your site initially for this by making it search engine friendly, it is
impossible to make any guarantees on ranking position.
Clients Responsibilities with Regard to backup:
The client is provided a backup copy of the website and all database files upon request as long as the website is not suspended or deleted.
We do not backup files on our local computers, we back up the files on a Private FTP Drive for the customer to download.
Backups are stored for 7 days on this account and then will be deleted.
Its the customers responsibility to store the files on their own media type.
Should the client wish to cancel at any point during the process they shall
remain liable for the work that has taken place and shall be invoiced accordingly.
Failure to Provide Required Website Content:
You must ensure that we are not delayed as a result of late delivery of
the material and content required to complete your website.
This is why we ask that you provide all the required information in advance.
On any occasion where we are delayed because you have not provided this
information, we reserve the right to be free from any responsibility of
the breach of services. Also, if your job involves Search Engine Optimization,
we need the text content for your site in advance so that the SEO can be
planned and completed efficiently.
If you agree to provide us with the required information in advance and
subsequently fail to do within four weeks from the date of the project commencement,
we reserve the right to archive the project and shall be subjected to new
negotiation with the management.
Conceptualizingis the process of producing website concepts for clients.
Concepts can include site mock ups, graphics and design proposals. This
clearly takes a lot of time most particularly involving higher cost of websites
will be included. For low cost sites (say below Php 35, 000.00) you should
be aware that (unless previously agreed in E-mail) only one concept is possible.
You should therefore ensure that you have informed us of your preferred
color scheme and design requirements beforehand. Otherwise, If you don’t
do this, we may be compelled to design the website appropriately as we deemed
it right. If it is not to your taste we may not be able to rework the website
without additional charges. This is why it is often best to show us another
website that you like as an example of what you require.
Travel Time and Travel Expenses:
Traveling time to and from customer premises is not generally included
in our estimate. Philippines Web Design reserves the right to make a charge for traveling
time at our current hourly rate. Likewise Philippines Web Design reserve the right
to charge for traveling expenses based on fare rate + 10%. (NOTE: There will be no charges for traveling time or expenses incurred during the quotation
process, i.e. before you give your approval for work to commence.)
The price quoted to the client is for the work specifically agreed on the
quotation only. Should the client decide that changes are required after
work on the website has commenced there may be a surcharge.
Payment – Advance Fee:
An advance fee of 100% of the total cost of the project is required before
work can start. Clients should only pay this advance fee if they agree to
our terms and conditions. Advance payment will be taken as part and parcel
in the compliance of the agreement.
Payment – Refund Policy:
Request for cancellation of Website design order after 7 days with no work
done yet, 75% of the down payment will be refunded. However, if the work
has started on the website only 50% of the down payment will be refunded.
But if the work on the website has completed more than 50% of the
project, there will be no more refund of the down payment made by the customer.
Under special circumstances, Philippines Web Design shall reserve negotiable
options as may be considered.
Unless otherwise agreed, payment is only accepted in Cash, Bank deposit
/ Money transfer (XOOM), Paypal.
Payment by Credit Card:
Credit card payments are accepted via our Paypal electronic invoicing system.
These payments are subject to a $15 (USD) surcharge and full payment is
required in advance. (Your credit card should offer you purchase protection.)
Payment of Balance:
Invoices are only issued when clients accept that their website has been
completed to their satisfaction. Payment of the balance is due immediately
on completion of the website. We reserve the right not to launch the website
until full payment has been received.

are a fact of life on today’s Internet. It is unlikely that these will affect
your website, and Philippines Web Design will endeavour to protect it from these
as much as we can during its creation, but after the website is handed over
we cannot be held responsible for problems caused by illegal activity or
the actions of others.
Access of client to control panel:
