On ordering a website design service you will receive a typed invoice confirming the site cost and number of pages to be constructed with technical details. (This document will also confirm details of the monthly hosting fees and or support fees payable and the general service terms or information)

The initial information which you request to be used will be noted by us or confirmed by email and/or taken in physical format. Your information will make up the initial construction of the website however we will be happy to make some adaptations to webite pages (such as fonts, colours, page layout or pictures for example) after the initial balance of the site has been paid. On all design matters we reserve the right to decide on content, how much content & conclusion of the approprite amount of work.
b. 50% deposit is payable on all orders for website design/developmet. You will receive confirmation of your deposit and site order by email. We wil lnormally include documents as attachments also confirming details. We will normally specify an estimated date for the completion of work however this is flexible. Normal periods are between 4-6 weeks from the date of ordering. This is also dependant however on you providing the relevant information with regards to site details. If only a general format for website design/development is specified then the balance of your fees is payable on the specified completion date. If other information and ideas are requested we may assist and add these later after the site is set up. We reserve the right to decide on how much work we do on design/devlopment in realtion to your fees. We cannot accept a delay in information as a reason for non payment of due fees.

We aim to have the initial site set up as near to your specification as possible however there is often only a general format specified by customers so further adaptations may be be made after initial payment. hWe must re-iterate that sitesfees are paid by the confirmed due date to facilitate this process.

NB. Sites usually become viewable straight away in Internet Explorer (the top address bar on the internet browser of windows software) It should be noted that it can take up to three months for domain names to become listed in the databases of search engines such as Google and Yahoo. We will try and ensure that the site can always be found in search engines via the domain name, however being found for phrases and key words can only be guaranteed by search engine submission programmes. All major companies submit their websites to search engines to ensure they are listed and can be found, Individual companies such as IMAD Scotland do not have any control over search engine organizations such as Yahoo and Google therefore submission is of paramount importance.

In the event that any one or more of the provisions contained in this Agreement shall for any reason be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other provision of this Agreement and this Agreement shall be construed as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision had never been set forth herein, and the provisions of this Agreement shall be observed and the obligations herein carried out according to this Agreement's original terms.
