Terms & Conditions

The following terms and conditions apply to all web site design and graphic services offered by Gillean Lazelle. By ordering services from me you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions.
1. I reserve the right to refuse to construct a web site which I judge as unfit due to content or otherwise. This includes, but is not limited by, sites containing adult oriented material such as pornography, sites which promote hatred towards persons belonging to any ethnic group, religion or sexual orientation and sites which infringe copyright or are contrary to UK laws.
2. The acceptance of a commission shall be deemed as a contractual agreement between the client and me.
3. A discount of up to 33% is available to Charities, Pagan and "Green" organisations, the definition of which is decided by me. This discounted rate does not apply to any expenses or ancillary costs.
4. I cannot always guarantee to start work immediately on a commission but will arrange a date with you as to when work can commence.
5. 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 copyright. All material, both text and images, supplied by the client and used in the construction of the client's web site, will remain the client's property.
6. Certain images provided by me in the construction of the website may have been purchased under licence from stock image suppliers. These images are generally only licensed for use on a single website and may not be used in publicity material. The website owner is legally responsible for ensuring that this does not happen. If you wish to use any images from the site for other purposes please contact me for clarification.
7. The copyright for all material provided by me, such as HTML code, graphics, photographs and text, will remain my property until such time as payment has been made in full whereupon they will become the property of the client.
8. I make every effort to design pages which display acceptably in the most popular current browsers, but cannot accept responsibility for pages which do not display acceptably in new versions of browsers released after pages have been designed.
9. I will submit a client's website to several of the major search engines as part of the design commission but cannot guarantee high placing in search engine results.
10. I cannot accept responsibility or liability if any search engine, online directory or search site, submitted to as part of a web site promotion commission, chooses not to list a client's web site.
11. If at any point during the development cycle a client wishes to cancel, they may do so but will be invoiced an amount that I judge to be proportional to the amount of work completed on the commission.
12. If, during the development cycle, the client does not supply the content required in order to complete the commission within a reasonable amount of time, I will consider that the client wishes to cancel the commission.
13. I expect payment by cheque, credit card or Paypal within 28 days of the date on the invoice.
14. Any payment returned by the bank or credit card company will incur a 25 administration charge. This will be invoiced and will be added to the total outstanding debt owed by the customer.
15. I do not undertake to maintain or update a client's website as part of the design commission. If a client wishes me to maintain or update a web site as a separate commission, I will negotiate with the client a maintenance contract appropriate to the amount of work required. Web site maintenance may also be undertaken on a time and materials basis if the client so wishes.
16. I reserve the right to alter prices at any time without notice. If a client has commissioned any services from me prior to a change in prices, that commission will not be subject to any increase, but any subsequent commission may be subject to an increase.
17. I reserve the right to use artwork I have created for you and to link to your website to give examples of my work for my professional portfolio.
18. By agreeing to these terms and conditions your statutory rights are not affected.
