Terms and Conditions

Protecting both of us


You, are hiring Advantage Web Designs located at 12 The Pheasantry, Scarborough, to design and develop a website or perform other services as outlined in your proposal. As our customer, you have the power and ability to enter into this contract on behalf of your company or organization. You agree to provide us with everything that we need to complete the project including text, images, fonts and other information as and when we need them, and in the format that we ask for. You agree to review our work, provide feedback, and sign-off approval in a timely manner and are bound by any deadlines that we set together. You also agree to keep to the payment schedule set out in your proposal. We have the experience and ability to perform the services you need and we will carry them out in a professional and timely manner. We will endeavour to meet all the deadlines set but are not responsible for a missed launch date or a deadline if you have been late in supplying materials or have not approved our work on time at any stage. We will also maintain the confidentiality of any information that you give us.

Details of the works

We will create a design for the look, layout, and functionality of your website, or other digital product. This contract includes one main design and opportunities for you to make revisions upto the final release. If you require any extra work after the completion of this project, we will provide you with an additional quote for that work.

HTML / CSS layout

We will develop using valid HTML5 markup and CSS3 for styling. We will test all our markup and CSS in current versions of all major browsers including those made by Apple, Microsoft, Mozilla, Google and Opera. We will not test these templates in old or abandoned browsers, for example, Microsoft Internet Explorer 5, 5.5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 for Windows or Mac, previous versions of Apple's Safari, Mozilla Firefox or Opera unless otherwise specified.

Text content

We are not responsible for writing any text copy. We will be happy to help optimise the text you provide, but significant copy-writing on our part will result in a charge above and beyond the original price, unless agreed before-hand. This will not be done without your approval of an additional quote provided in advance.

Photographs, logos and artwork

If needed, you will supply us photographs in a digital format, along with a company logo. If you choose to buy stock photographs, that price will be added to the initial quote. Stock photography will not be purchased without your written approval. Free stock images may be available from various resources. If we are tasked with searching and locating suitable images, a small extra charge will be levied to cover our time.

Changes and revisions

The quotation prices in your proposal are based on the time we estimate we will need to accomplish everything that you have told us you want to achieve. If you do want to change your mind, add extra pages or templates, or even add new functionality, that won't be a problem. At that time you will be provided with an additional quote for the extra work.

Technical support

As agreed, the quote provided includes the installation and set up of your website on our third-party web server. Updates to, and management of that server, plus any support issues will be up to us. Our response time will be dependent on the response time of the third-party server providers. We offer 48 hour email support for all other issues.


We are not 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 your website and any other web pages — even if you have advised me 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.


You guarantee to us that any elements of text, graphics, photos, designs, trademarks, or other artwork that you provide us for inclusion in the website are either owned by you or that you have permission to use them. When we receive your final payment, copyright is automatically assigned as follows: You own the graphics and other visual elements that we create for you for this project. We will give you a copy of all files and you should store them carefully as we are not required to keep them or provide any native source files that we used in making them. You also own text content, photographs, and other data you provided unless someone else owns them. We own the HTML markup, CSS, and other code and we license it to you for use on only this project. I also reserve the right to display and link to your completed project as part of my portfolio and to write about the project on websites, in magazine articles, and in books.


As agreed in our proposal, our payment schedule will be as follows but may be revised based on further conversations between us. 20% of the total fee before starting the project. The remaining 80% within 30 days of completion of the project. Interest accrued if payment is more than 14 days late. We reserve the right to add 5% of the outstanding balance.
