Terms & Conditions
If we are creating the design a 50% deposit is required when ordering a website. When a design has been approved, a test site will be activated where you (or we) can add the content. When you are ready for the site to go live (or 1 month after the test site has been created if that is sooner), the remaining 50% balance is due.
For a standard ‘Bronze’ package where you create your own banner, full payment is due on order. The website will be available for you to work on within four working days.
Payment in full must be received before any site will go live.
For customers who would like the Kingfisher team to add content or update their websites, we currently charge £30/hour, payable in advance in 10 hour blocks. 5 hour blocks can be bought at £35/hour. Minimum charge per time-sheeted update/set of updates is 30 minutes. One off updates/sets of updates are charged at £40/hour, minimum charge one hour. (Prices valid January 2013 – no increase for 2 years!)
The hosting fee varies according to the package bought. This fee covers hosting and maintenance of the website and backing up of the content on a regular basis (which is held for 48 hours). Each page also has multiple backups so you should be covered in any situation. It also covers reasonable email support during office hours. For Clients who choose a bespoke site, we also offer higher levels of support, up to 7-day-a-week phone support.
Acceptable Use Policy
We use Bluehost as our hosting provider, and are bound by their Acceptable Use Policy. We expect our Clients to adhere to ‘reasonable use’ of bandwidth, with available space detailed according to the package bought. If ‘excessive use’ of video content is used, or incorrect use of images and files, we reserve the right to negotiate new terms if the service standard for other Clients is affected. We will first give a warning and advice as to how you should correct your website data. If this is not altered by the end of the second month, you will be invoiced additional costs. Your website may be turned off until full payment is received. We reserve the right to remove offending material or in extreme cases deactivate a Client’s website for breach of Acceptable Use.
Data Protection Statement
This details how we protect the privacy of your personal data and how we will use any data that you send to us. It includes useful links and telephone numbers for the telephone and mail preference services and credit rating agencies. Read it here.
Technical & Support Information
Our websites are written using web-standard html, css, php and mysql.
We make every effort to handle support requests quickly and efficiently, however there may be times when we are unable to respond immediately. We will endeavour to respond to all support enquiries within 24 hours, however no guarantee is given and no compensation is offered. We aim to maintain an average website uptime of at least 98%. Generally, the uptime is much better than this, however we reserve the right to take the website offline periodically for routine maintenance of the system and fault repair as required. We will undertake to carry out these maintenance tasks during non-business hours to avoid undue interruption to the Service and you will usually be given adequate notice of this. However there may be times when this is not possible.
Termination of an Agreement
Either party may terminate this Agreement by giving the other party 30 days notice of its intention to terminate. All fees are non-refundable, unless Kingfisher Web Services can be shown to have failed to provide the agreed services. If this Agreement is terminated, the client retains all page content and all database content pertaining to their website. The client can copy this content for re-use, or we will provide a copy of this content for transfer. A reasonable charge will be made for this service.
