Web Design Australian Project Timelines:

Web Design Australian estimates that your site can be created in under 28 days, unless otherwise specified prior to commencing the project.

The above time frame is an estimation only and projects can be delayed by a number of factors including (but not limited to) noncompliance by you with the instructions to or requests from Web Design Australian, incorrect content being supplied to Web Design Australian and Web Design Australian being unable to contact you for prolonged periods of time.  You must ensure that Web Design Australian have accurate contact details for you.

You must make every effort to follow the instructions provided by Web Design Australian and provide the required information to Web Design Australian in order to facilitate delivery times and correct specifications.

Web Design Australian will make all reasonable efforts to provide the product by the estimated date but do not accept liability for any costs incurred, loss or damage (including consequential loss or damage) compensation or loss of earnings due to any failure to meet agreed deadlines.

In order to enable Web Design Australian to complete your project within a reasonable time frame, Web Design Australian may move your site to the next stage of development in circumstances where:

  • Web Design Australian does not receive any feedback or changes from you within 14 days of such items being requested; or
  • Web Design Australian does not receive your content within 14 days of it being requested.

Web Design Australian, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to develop your site without first receiving your progress payment in the event that Web Design Australian does not receive your content within 14 days of having requested it.  If Web Design Australian elects to build your site without first receiving content from you, standard template content will be used which can be changed by yourself using the Content Management System once the site is handed over to you.

In the event that Web Design Australian does not receive any final changes to be made to the site from you within 14 days of having requested such details from you, then Web Design Australian reserves the right to hand over your site to you, at which time your final payment will become immediately due and payable.

Content, Design and Package Restrictions:

Each package or product has certain design and functionality restrictions.  It is your responsibility to understand these restrictions prior to commencing any project.  You should discuss any queries you may have with your consultant and also refer to the examples Web Design Australian has provided to you which fall within your budget range, and refer to any documentation that Web Design Australian has provided to you.

During various stages of the design process Web Design Australian will request from you certain information and content.  You should ensure that the information and content that you provide to Web Design Australian is correct and is your final version.  Web Design Australian cannot accept any revised content once you have submitted your content.  Any revisions to content may result in you incurring additional costs.

Where “pages” of content are specified, a “Page” consists of up to 1 A4 page of text and up to 5 images. If you require more content than this on any one page, you should advise Web Design Australian accordingly so that Web Design Australian can provide you with a quote for the extra content.

Where a gallery of images is used, up to 20 images can be entered by Web Design Australian for you.  Additional images may incur additional costs.  You should note that a gallery counts as 1 page.

When Web Design Australian provide you with design layouts for approval, these design layouts represent the suggested design for the home page of the site.  You must understand that the inner pages of the site will follow a simpler design as there is more information to be presented.  You should ensure that you ask your consultant for more information if you are unclear on this.

Web Design Australian uses the content in the form that is provided to Web Design Australian by you and does not conduct spelling or grammar checks.  Web Design Australian will not write your content for you unless you have requested that this be provided as a separate service which will incur additional costs.  You are solely responsible for the content of the site and accordingly Web Design Australian will treat the submitted content as the final version of that content.  If you find you have errors in your submitted content, you are able to change your content through the Content Management System if there is one attached to your site.

Web Design Australian include a set number of rounds of changes during its site production process. The standard number of rounds of changes is 3.  Any extra changes required by you may incur additional costs and such extra changes can be purchased during the sales process.  Web Design Australian accepts no responsibility for ensuring that such changes are error free.

Changes must be submitted in one email and one email of changes (within the scope of the project) is considered one round of changes.  In the event that Web Design Australian makes any mistakes or omissions in implementing the changes that you have requested, Web Design Australian will rectify this at its own expense.

Please ensure that you limit your changes to comply with the agreed specifications.  Failure to do this may result in you incurring additional costs.

Web Design Australian may include a link to its own website at the footer of your site and, where such link is so included, you must not take any steps to remove this link.  Web Design Australian reserves the right to change any such links from time to time.

Testing:

You are expected to test fully any application or programming relating to the site developed by Web Design Australian for you before making such site generally available for use.  Where “bugs”, errors or other issues are found after the site is live, Web Design Australian shall endeavor (but is not obliged to) to correct these issues to meet the standards of function outlined in these terms and conditions.

Fees and Payment Terms:

The total cost of your project and any fees are set out in the quote provided to you by Web Design Australian, the scope of work and any ad hoc quotes that may be provided to you by Web Design Australian from time to time. Details regarding costs can also be obtained from your sales consultant by request.  You must ensure that you are aware of any costs and ongoing fees before you elect to proceed.

Any monthly fees attached to your project must be paid in full in order to ensure your service continuity. Your site may be suspended or discontinued if your fees fall overdue outside of Web Design Australian payment terms.

Your initial website consultations are included in your quoted project cost and form part of your deposit. If you do not decide to proceed with Web Design Australian, you will not be liable for this cost.

Web Design Australian’s standard payment terms for any project are as follows:–

  • 50% of the total project cost will be required as an upfront deposit in order to get your project started.  This also includes the cost of your initial website consultations.
  • A progress payment equal to 40% of the total project cost must be made 28 days after your project start date or once you have approved your design layout and have provided the content for your site, whichever occurs first.
  • The balance of the total project costs shall be payable 56 days after your project start date and prior to Web Design Australian making the site live.

Web Design Australian requires final payment and direct debit forms to be provided in respect of any ongoing fees and such forms are to be returned to Web Design Australian before Web Design Australian will make your site live. Your final balance payment and direct debit form must be returned to Web Design Australian upon completion of your site (before going live) or within 56 days from the date that your initial deposit was made – whichever occurs first.

Content Management System fees and other monthly fees are to be paid by way of monthly direct debit.  Your monthly fees will start on the day which is 56 days after the date on which you have paid the upfront deposit.

Please note that a Direct Debit Dishonour Fee of $15 applies to your account whenever a direct debit transaction is dishonoured.

Any extras requested during the process shall be added to the total project costs and will be payable at the stages outlined above.  Please note that extras outside your package specifications will incur additional charges which Web Design Australian will inform you of before proceeding.

If you require Web Design Australian to make changes to your site after your site is handed over to you, you will be required to pay for this work at the hourly rate or in accordance with Web Design Australian’ standard prices as quoted.  All work must be paid for upfront and will be quoted for on request.

If Web Design Australian has difficulties contacting you for prolonged periods of time or does not receive required feedback of information from you, you may incur additional charges and delays in delivery of your project.  If you are un-contactable for more than 14 days, Web Design Australian may suspend your project indefinitely or end your project without further notice to you.  If your project is suspended or ended, then your final payment will be due and payable immediately to Web Design Australian. To resume your project you will need to pay a $97 re-instatement fee and the decision regarding whether the project will be resumed shall rest solely with Web Design Australian.

If you wish to take your site and host elsewhere, you still need to pay Web Design Australian the monthly service fee or pay a release fee of $300 in order to waive your monthly fees.  Please discuss this with your consultant should you be unclear as to this.

You can apply to Web Design Australian to have your project on hold if your circumstances change, in which case you may be required to make the next payment due and then the project will be placed on hold for a period determined by Web Design Australian.  Applications will be assessed on individual merits and if approved will be for a finite period determined by Web Design Australian.  You will not be charged any additional costs to resume your project in these circumstances.

Please note that paying the deposit on any project shall signify your agreement and commitment to complete the project with Web Design Australian and your agreement to make full payment to Web Design Australian.  Payment in full of the total project costs will be required in the event that you do not wish to proceed with your project after such time as you have paid your deposit and you are outside the refund period.

You shall remain liable for all fees incurred by Web Design Australian during any period when your site has been suspended or discontinued due to your failure to comply with these terms and conditions.  In addition, you must pay all costs in full without any offset, counter claim or deduction unless first agreed to in writing by Web Design Australian.

Please note that interest at the rate of 10% of your site build contract shall be charged on any amounts outstanding in excess of Web Design Australian payment terms from time to time.  Additionally if your site is not live and your direct debit form remains unreturned to Web Design Australian 60 days after handover has occurred, a release fee of $300 will be charged to hand over all your site files which are then deleted from the Web Design Australian server.

If accounts are not settled and Web Design Australian has not been contacted regarding the delay, access to your site may be denied and the web page may be removed.
