3. Information Required From You
During the project I may require information from you, which may include, but is not limited to, copy, images, or branding such as logos or banners. If there is a delay in supplying any required information, then this will delay any previously agreed timescales.
Any quote given will include an initial consultation to gather all required information for the project. Website packages also include a midway consultation. Any further consultations will incur an additional charge.
All work to be undertaken will be detailed in the quote or brief. Any variation to these works may incur an additional charge, which will be advised at the time.
For website packages, the layout prior to the inclusion of any text or images, will be shown during the midway consultation. At this point, any changes required will be discussed and agreed upon. These changes (within reason) are included in the total cost. Any further changes past this point may incur an additional charge, which will be advised at the time.
6. Cancellation of work
Once a deposit is paid, the project is considered agreed to, and work will commence. Any cancellation that occurs after this point will result in a loss of deposit, except in the case where no work has been undertaken.
All cancellations must be requested in writing.
