1. The Client is hiring the Service Provider to design and develop a website for indicated price in the Statement of Work. The Client acknowledges that the price is based on an assessment of the information that was provided to the Service Provider on the date of the agreement. The Client further acknowledges that if the Service Provider determines additional work not documented in the Statement of Work is needed, the price will be impacted. The Client will however have the opportunity to review and approve these changes prior to the Service Provider moving forward.
All payments are due upon the invoice due date. Should a payment be late, the Service Provider reserves the right to freeze all work until accounts are settled. Payments can be made via Bank Transfer (including PayNow) or PayPal, with details provided by the Service Provider.
Projects are handled with a 50% upfront (also known as initial payment), 50% at completion (before website handover) policy.

This does not include new website revisions, but errors that may have occurred during migration. It is the Client’s responsibility to review his, her or their website during this time and point out any errors to be corrected. Errors that require correction after the 7 days will be billed as a new service accordingly.
6. Website Handover
Once the project deliverables have been approved, the Client will be required to make full payment of the project’s remaining balance before the website will be migrated to the Client’s hosting. From the time the website is completed and ready for launch, the Client has a maximum of 30 days to provide the hosting and domain information. If that information is not provided within the timeframe, there will be a possibility that the website will be removed from The Service Provider’s server without notice. Extensions can be provided upon written request.
The Service Provider may provide recommendations for website hosting to ensure a smooth migration experience. If the Client already has a hosting plan in place, the server has to be managed by the hosting and have a web hosting application installed, such as cPanel. The Service Provider will require the hosting login information and or cPanel access associated with the hosting account. The Client is also responsible for the management and maintenance of his, her or their hosting at all times. All hosting support issues should be directed to the Client’s hosting service.

The Service Provider may utilize their own software, plugin or theme licenses on the website, or in conjunction with the website, for the purpose of website development and testing only. The usage rights and ownership of any licenses owned by the Service Provider will not be transferred to the Client, regardless if it is still being activated on the website at any point of time.
