Website Contract

Summary

8 Create always does it’s best to fulfill your needs and meet your expectations, but it’s important to have things written down so that we both know what’s what.
In this contract, you won’t find any complicated legal terms or long passages of unreadable text. I have no desire to trick you
into signing something that you might later regret. What we do want is what’s best for both parties, now and in the future.

You have the authority to enter into this contract on behalf of yourself, your company or your organization.

You’ll give 8 Create the assets and information need to complete the project (ex. login credentials, hosting info, content, image, etc).

You’ll review my work, provide feedback and approval in a timely manner too.

I have the experience and ability to do everything I’ve agreed with you and I’ll do it all in a professional and timely manner.

I’ll endeavor to meet every deadline that’s requested and on top of that, I’ll maintain the confidentiality of everything you give me.

You’ll have plenty of opportunities to review work and provide feedback. We’ll correspond via email mostly. But can schedule next-day calls if necessary. If, at any stage, you change your mind about what you want to be delivered and are not happy with the direction our work is taking you’ll pay us in full for the percentage of time spent working with you until that point and terminate this contract.

Files/Images/Graphics

You should supply graphics (logo files) in an editable, vector digital format.
You should supply photographs in a high-resolution digital format.
If you’d like 8 Create to search for photographs for you, that can be done with stock photos. If you are a local client, you can request a FREE PHOTO SHOOT for your website.

Browser & Mobile testing

I test your website in current versions of major desktop browsers including those made by Apple (Safari), Google (Chrome), Microsoft (Edge), Mozilla Firefox and Opera. Mobile browser testing Testing using popular smaller screen devices is essential in ensuring that a person’s experience of a design is appropriate to the capabilities of the device they’re using.

Technical Support

If you did not purchase website hosting from 8 Create, we offer minimal support for website hosting only during the development state. Upon launch, you are on your own unless you would like to pay an hourly rate (mostly to have me yell at your hosting provider).

If you host with 8 Create for $50/year, congratulations! You get FULL SUPPORT!

Search engine optimization (SEO)

I don’t guarantee a specific Google ranking for your business but the web pages that I develop are accessible to search engines and we are always trying to improve your ranking.

Changes and revisions

I don’t want to limit your ability to change your mind. The price of this project is based on:
My Time + Worth of a Professional Website to Your Business.
During concepts phase and changes to the live website while we create your content; you can make as many changes as you want. However, I do have a bit of spidey-sense when clients continue to make changes to stall the launch and final payment of their site. If this ends up being the case, please – just let me know you cannot afford the final payment and we can work something out in a payment plan so that you can launch on time.

I cannot guarantee that our work will be error-free at all time. It’s both our job to proof text and website features. I suggest the browser extension Grammarly for catching any text errors you send me.

Phew.

You guarantee that all elements of text, images or other artwork you provide are either owned by your good selves or that you have permission to use them. When you provide text, images or other artwork to me, you agree to protect us from any claim by a third party that you’re using their intellectual property. (Example: You Want me to Use an Image not owned by you and not a stock photo).

I will also guarantee this.

You’ll own the website I design for you plus the visual elements that I create for it. I’ll give you source files and finished files (if you’d like) and you should keep them somewhere safe as I’m not required to keep a copy unless you are getting 8 Create hosting . You own all intellectual property rights of text, images, site specification and data you provided unless someone else owns them.

Home Stretch!

I love to show off my work, so I reserve the right to display all aspects of my work in my portfolio. If you are not ok with 8 Create displaying the work done for you, we can sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) for an additional cost of $50. However, if you are ok with the free promotion of your business and your logo in the 8 Create portfolio, let’s continue!

If you are an agency falsely acting as the sole developer of a website and need to hire 8 Create for a web development/design you will be charged for an NDA before this contract is finalized. The NDA price will be calculated by type of business this package will be for and worth of the portfolio loss for 8 Create.

Payment schedule
You agree to pay 50% of the project before project start and the remaining 50% upon launch.

This contract stays in place and need not be renewed. If for some reason one part of this contract becomes invalid or unenforceable, the remaining parts of it remain in place.

Although the language is simple, the intentions are serious and this contract is a legal document.

So in short;
