  10. Email will be the primary method of contact with regard to all communication. Although Jhwebdesign can be contacted by telephone or in person for our local customers, we will use email as our method of communication and therefore it is the Client’s responsibility to inform us of any change in email address so we always have up to date email contact details. Jhwebdesign cannot be held liable in any way relating to communication issues if we are not supplied a valid email address. Jhwebdesign will acknowledge all emails within a 24 hour period excluding weekend and public holidays.
  11. Jhwebdesign will only commence work on a Project after receipt of a non refundable, £100 deposit from the Client. Jhwebdesign will then require the remaining payment when the website goes live.
  12. The deposit paid to Jhwebdesign covers the cost of design work carried out as well as any admin work and communication with Jhwebdesign. The deposit is non refundable.

  14. It is important for the Client to keep in contact with Jhwebdesign throughout the entire Project. If a Client does not make contact for up to 2 months we will make up to 3 attempts to contact the client by email using the email address specified when the client went ahead. If we do not receive a response to these attempts of contact the Project may be terminated, and the deposit will not be refunded.
  15. Where images used on the website have been purchased by Jhwebdesign on behalf of the Client, these images are strictly for use on the website only. Jhwebdesign are not liable for misuse of these images by the Client or any other person’s copying, altering or distributing the images to individuals or other organisations.
  16. Jhwebdesign will host the website if the Client requires us to do so and on receipt of full payment of our Hosting fees. In doing so, Jhwebdesign will endeavour to provide a reliable and professional service to the Client at all times but do not guarantee that the website Hosting will be available at all times, especially in the event of a technical failure beyond our control. This is extremely rare, but it happens very occasionally.

  20. Jhwebdesign will provide the Client with an expected completion date for the Project (live on the internet) if requested. Jhwebdesign will endeavour to meet any given deadline, but do not guarantee and are not bound in any way to complete the Project by this date. The expected completion date provided by any employee of Jhwebdesign is purely an estimate. This is due to the nature of having to wait for information from the client, and the number of changes that we need to make as a result of this. We always do our best to go live within dates specified however.

  24. Domain names will be registered by Jhwebdesign and also registered to the Jhwebdesign current address.

  25. A domain name will be registered by Jhwebdesign on behalf of the client once we have received the 40% deposit and a completed design brief.

  27. When a Client renews Hosting with Jhwebdesign , this also includes domain renewal if the renewal is needed to keep the site functioning and was purchased as part of the Hosting package. If the Client does not renew the Hosting, their domain name could be made available to the public for purchase and Jhwebdesign cannot be held liable for this.

Renewal of Hosting is due on a yearly basis. The date of renewal will be annually from the date the website was ordered by the Client. The Hosting will not be renewed if Jhwebdesign cannot contact the Client or the Client requests for Jhwebdesign to not host this site. This will also affect the domain as per item 24.
