Terms and Conditions

(Please ensure that you read and understand these conditions.)

1. Contract
The client’s approval for work to commence shall be deemed a contractual agreement between the client and Unityworx. Important: Approval for the work to commence and payment of the advance fee indicates that the client accepts the terms and conditions outlined in this document.

2. Unityworx Intellectual Property
Unityworx will hold intellectual property of any material, including any source code and original images created for the client, until payment of the final invoice. At this time the intellectual property will transfer to the client.

3. Clients Responsibilities with Regard to Copyright
In situations where the client provides images, text, animations or any other content for their website, they are legally responsible for ensuring that this material does not infringe any third part’s copyright. Certain images provided by Unityworx in the construction of the website may have been purchased under licence from stock image suppliers. These images are only licensed for use on a single website and may not be used in publicity material unless Unityworx advises that other uses are permitted. The website owner is legally responsible for ensuring that unauthorised use of such images does not happen. If you wish to use any images from the site for other purposes please contact us for clarification.

4. Registration Charges
the Client shall meet all costs arising from the registration of a domain name. Unityworx, where we have registered a domain name on the client’s behalf, agrees to transfer this domain name to the client immediately upon request and without charge.

5. Search Engine Promotion
Unityworx are not responsible for the client’s on-going web site promotion. Should the client require the site to be promoted on an ongoing basis a separate contract must be agreed. The order in which websites are ranked in the natural search results is controlled by the search engines. While we can take steps to optimise your site for this we are unable to make any guarantees about the success of any search engine promotion activity.

6. Cancellation
Should the client wish to cancel at any point during the process they shall remain liable for the work that has taken place and shall be invoiced accordingly.

7. IMPORTANT! Failure to Provide Required Website Content
We are a small business. To remain efficient we must ensure that work we have programmed is carried out at the scheduled time. On occasions we may have to reject other work and enquiries to ensure that your work is completed at the time arranged.

For these reasons we ask that you provide all the required information needed for us to perform our services in advance. On any occasion where we cannot progress your website development because you have not provided the required information when you have agreed to do so, and we are delayed as result, we reserve the right to impose a surcharge of up to 25%.

8. If you agree to provide us with any information and subsequently fail to do within four weeks of project commencement, we reserve the right to close the project and the balance of our fees remaining will become payable immediately.

NOTE 1: do not give us the go ahead to start work until you are ready to do so.

NOTE 2: Text content should be delivered as a Microsoft Word (or similar) document with the pages in the supplied document representing the content of the relevant pages on your website. These pages should have the same titles as the agreed website pages. Contact us if you need clarification on this.

9. Conceptualising
Conceptualising is the process of producing website concepts for clients. Concepts can include site mock-ups, graphics and design proposals. For higher cost websites this will be included but for low cost sites (below $600) please bear in mind that unless previously agreed, only one concept is possible. You should therefore ensure that you let us have your preferred colour scheme and design requirements beforehand. If you don’t do this we will design the website appropriately but if it is not to your taste we may not be able to rework the website without additional charges. This is why it is often best to show us another website that you like as an example of what you require.

10. Quotations
The price quoted to the client is for the work agreed on the quotation only. Should the client decide that changes are required after work on the website commences, then we will accept these changes with the provision that additional charges can be required.

11. Advance Payment
An advance of 50% of the total cost of the project is required before work can commence. After work commences this advance is non-refundable.

12. Payment terms:
Payment is currently accepted by EFT (Electronics funds transfer), cheque, or money order in AU dollars. If your cheque is returned by the bank as unpaid for any reason, you will be liable to reimburse us for a "returned cheque" charge of $25.

13. Payment
Payment of any balance will be due within 7 days of the final invoice date. Full publication of the Web Pages may be delayed until after full payment has been received. Any material previously published may be removed if payment is not received. When this occurs a minimum payment of the outstanding amount will be required to have the site restored.

14. Late Payment
Accounts that have not been settled within 7 days of our final reminder will incur a late payment charge of 10% of the amount outstanding.

15. Future Support
The website is provided to and accepted by the client as a fully functioning, completed work. Unityworx is not responsible for future support. This support can normally be provided upon request and for an agreed fee. No guarantee of future support is given unless an ongoing support package is negotiated as a separate contract

16. Future Site Problems
Unfortunately malicious software, spyware, viruses and website hacking are facts of life on today’s Internet. It is highly unlikely that these will affect your website, and Unityworx will endeavour to protect it from this as much as we can during its creation. We cannot be held responsible for problems that develop on completed sites as a result of illegal activity.

17. Compliance with Ecommerce, Accessibility or Other Regulations
We design websites in accordance with the client’s specifications. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure that the website and its content comply with applicable regulations and laws. We cannot accept responsibility for any failure to comply with regulations related to accessibility, selling online or those related to a specific business or trade. We can research this on the client’s behalf upon request, but in any business where complex compliance issues exist we recommend that the client obtain legal advice from a lawyer.

Should Unityworx waive any of these terms on an individual basis, this shall not affect the application of remaining clauses or commit Unityworx to waive the same term(s) on any other occasion.

b)If the Customer fails to comply with any agreement (including failure to pay charges due, having been notified of the overdue amount) until the breach (if capable of remedy) is remedied, or does, or allows to be done anything which in Unityworx's opinion may have the effect of jeopardising the operation of any Service.
