Terms and Conditions

Service Agreement

This Service Agreement ("Agreement") is entered into by and between Design Dose Web Designing Services, ("Provider"), and [Client's Name/Company Name], ("Client").

Confidentiality

Both the Client and the Provider agree to keep confidential all information relating to each other’s business, including but not limited to financial information, trade secrets, and customer lists. Neither party will disclose such information to any third party without the other party’s prior written consent.

Change in Specifications

The Client may request that changes be made to the specifications outlined in this Agreement and tasks associated thereto. If the Client requests such a change, the Provider will use its best efforts to implement the requested change at no additional expense to the Client and without delaying delivery of the Website. In the event that the proposed change will, in the sole discretion of the Designer, require a delay in the delivery of the Website or would result in additional expense to the Client, then the Client and the Provider shall confer and the Client shall, in its discretion, elect either to withdraw the proposed change or require the Provider to deliver the Website with the proposed change and subject to the delay and/or additional expense.

Proprietary Rights

The Client shall be the owner of all right, title, and interest in any intellectual property in the Website and the Services shall be deemed a Work Made For Hire in accordance with the Copyright Act, as amended from time to time. The Provider acknowledges and agrees that the Website will contain valuable proprietary rights and disclaims all rights in such rights. The Provider hereby assigns to the Client without further compensation all of its right, title, and interest in the Website and any and all related intellectual property rights thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Provider retains the right to include a credit in the website footer indicating that the Provider created the website, and to use the website in its portfolio and other promotional materials.

Design Process

Designs for websites with fewer than five pages will take approximately 5-7 working days. For websites with more than five pages, the design process will take approximately 10-14 working days.

Quality Assurance Measures

The Provider will implement rigorous quality assurance measures throughout the design process. This includes thorough testing on various devices and browsers to ensure compatibility and optimal performance. The Provider will also conduct regular reviews and updates to address any issues or concerns raised by the Client.

Revisions

Two rounds of revisions are included with each website design project. These revisions refer to changes in design elements, not a complete overhaul or new concept. Further revisions after the second round will result in additional costs. Requests for revisions must be made within 14 days of the initial design delivery.

Pricing

The base price for a basic one to three-page website is R3000. For a website with five to ten pages, the price increases to R5000. For more than ten pages, the price is R10,000. A deposit of 50% is required to commence work. The Provider may incur costs (including but not limited to travel, lodging, and other costs incidental to the Services) for which it shall be reimbursed by the Client. However, any such costs must be approved by the Client in advance. The Provider will provide an itemized list of all such costs incurred during the provision of the Services, and the Client agrees to reimburse the Provider for these costs within a specified number of days after receiving this list. Note: Costs do not include hosting and domain purchase. If the Client wishes for the Provider to assist with these, additional costs will apply. No refunds will be given once the work has started and the deposit has been paid.

Timeline

The Provider will deliver the final website design within the agreed timeframe. Any delays in project completion may occur if there is a delay in the receipt of any client materials or feedback.

Ownership

Upon final payment, the Client will own the final website design. The Provider reserves the right to display the website in its portfolio and marketing materials. The Client shall be the owner of all right, title, and interest in any intellectual property in the Website and the Services shall be deemed a Work Made For Hire in accordance with the Copyright Act, as amended from time to time.

Limitation of Liability

The Provider's liability for any claim related to the services provided shall not exceed the total fees paid by the Client for the services rendered.

Termination

Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time by providing the other party with a written notice of termination. Upon termination, no refunds will be given. The Client will continue to owe any remaining balance owed to the Provider. The Provider will retain all rights to the completed work and any intellectual property rights associated with the work.

Amendments

The Provider reserves the right to amend these terms and conditions at any time. All amendments will be posted on the Provider's website.
