WEBSITE TERMS & CONDITION

Last Updated: 11-05-2021
WEBSITE TERMS & CONDITION
The following terms and conditions apply to all Website Development Strategy / Design / SEO / PPC by The Business Toolkit unless stated differently in the invoice or the submitted proposal.
Acceptance
It is not necessary for any Client to have signed an acceptance of these terms and conditions for them to apply. If a Client accepts an estimate or pays an invoice or fixed price, the Client will be deemed to have satisfied themselves as to the applicable terms and accepted these terms and conditions in full. Please read these terms and conditions carefully. Any purchase or use of our services implies that you have read and accepted our terms and conditions through our checkout process.
Charges
Charges for services to be provided by The Business Toolkit are available as fixed and discounted pricing via our website www.thebusinesstoolkit.com and can also be provided through a custom invoice sent via email and SMS. Quotations sent via email and SMS are valid for a period of 10 days. The Business Toolkit reserves the right to alter or decline to provide a quotation after a period of 10 days.
Phases Definition

  • Consultation Phase
  • Design Phase
  • Development Phase
  • Deployment Phase

Client Review
Once the original scope of work is completed, it will be deemed as the “deployment phase.” The Business Toolkit will provide ten (10) days for the client to review and request revisions of the website unless agreed otherwise via written notice. Two rounds of revisions will be permitted. The Business Toolkit suggests that the client should utilize at least 72 hours to compile revisions and modifications to the draft. This allows the client adequate time to process their full range of thoughts and collaborate with team members. Failure to provide feedback or revisions within 10 days (unless agreed otherwise) will result in the client website’s status becoming dormant and ineligible for further revisions. The client can make the website deployment live after 10 days without revisions. The client can pay a fee of $100 to be eligible for revisions after 10 days, which would remove the “dormant” status.
CUFN Websites
A website will be considered CUFN (Closing Until Further Notice) after no contact from the customer through three non-responsive consecutive attempts via email, SMS and phone call from our team for 30 days. After 90 days, all project files and data will be completely deleted. This website is non-refundable due to the lack of diligence and communication from the customer.
Pago
Web design and development projects under $10,000.00 USD are required to be paid in full. For projects above $10,001.00 USD, payment can be made in 4 parts: 30% to get started, 30% after design deliverables, 30% after development deliverables, and 10% upon final approval and the site is launched. Invoices are sent via email and are due upon receipt for projects with payment installments above $10,001.00 USD. Accounts that remain unpaid fifteen (15) days after the date of the invoice will be assessed a 5% service charge. Payments for SEO and PPC are set up on recurring payments. An automatic recurring payment according to your invoice will be made every 30 Days (“Monthly Payment”) for renewal of your SEO or PPC services. You have the right to withdraw your consent to this Automatic Recurring Payment at any time. To cancel your Automatic Recurring Payment, email support@thebusinesstoolkit.com.
Additional Expenses

The client agrees that The Business Toolkit cannot guarantee the exact same functionality with all browsers across different operating systems. The Business Toolkit cannot accept responsibility for web pages that do not display acceptably in new versions of browsers released after the website has been designed and handed over to the client. As such, The Business Toolkit reserves the right to quote for any work involved in changing the website design or website code for it to work with updated browser software.
