we are both clear about what we are each undertaking to do, so that our 'partnership'

1. Once you have read and accepted these Terms of Agreement, please forward your
paper layout sketches of your desired pages, graphics and electronic text as well
as a non-refundable payment of 33% of the total cost of your order. When calculating
your 33% do not forget to include all optional extras you require. Receipt of this
payment will be acknowledged by email and will initiate Stage1 of this assignment.
initial payment has been received Thrifty Websites will proceed without delay on
Stage 1 of your assignment. Assuming that all your materials are received at this
same time, Thrifty Websites will undertake to complete Stage 1 within one week. Once
this Stage is complete we will advise you that you can now inspect your Web site
on the Internet.
2. Thrifty Websites will reproduce your copy (text, graphics and layout) exactly
as received so that your Web site will be identical to the copy you provide. Thrifty
Websites will reproduce any drawings and photos (as is) at the size and position
indicated by you on the relevant page of your layout sketch.
3. Web pages additional to the Home Page are charged at £30 (thirty pounds)
per web page which includes three photos (a Web page may be 1 or 2 A4 sheets long).
4. The text of the pages must be sent electronically (by email or CD), allowing Thrifty
Websites to copy and paste the text into your Web pages.
5. If only typewritten text is supplied, than an extra charge of £15 (fifteen
pounds) per A4 page will be charged to cover conversion to electronic format. The
typewritten copy must be clear and clean (i.e. no hand-written instructions or comments
on the typewritten pages). No handwritten documents will be accepted by Thrifty Websites.
6. Drawings, logos and photos may be sent electronically (we prefer to receive photos
in JPEG format). If this is not possible Thrifty Websites can scan the originals,
as is, without modification. There is no extra charge for this service.
7. Communications between you and Thrifty Websites will be through email, fax and
/or the postal service. This also applies to any future updates to your pages and
the creation of new pages. This ensures accuracy of web page content.
8. When the Web site has been made you can inspect it via your own Web browser (e.g.
Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator) at a temporary web address we will notify
you of. Thrifty Websites will freely undertake to make minor changes suggested by
you, such as spelling errors and change of colour. Major changes (e.g. button changes,
new text, photos or drawings) you wish to make will incur a charge between five pounds
up to a maximum of twenty pounds per page. It is therefore to your benefit to
ensure that the copy you have supplied to Thrifty Websites has been thoroughly checked
beforehand for accuracy and desired layout of text, drawings, buttons, thumbnails
9. Once any changes to the viewing described in the paragraph above have been completed
and approved by you, the final outstanding balance (including any additional charges
incurred), will be forwarded by you to Thrifty Websites. On receipt of the balance
Thrifty Websites will then register your domain name, place your Web site on a commercial
server and install a visitor counter, search box (optional extra) and visitor statistics
generator on your Home page, and confirm that these have been completed. We will
also submit your website to the top search engines. Thrifty Websites will include,
at the bottom of your Home page, a small caption stating "This site constructed
by Thrifty Websites".
This concludes stage 2 of the assignment. (Please note that if the outstanding balance
is not received, or other arrangements have not been made, the temporary URL used
for inspection will be de-activated.)
10. If you need to
make further small changes (e.g. dates, spelling errors, background colour, addresses),
you can send us these changes by email and we will implement the changes free of
charge for small alterations up to two pages. You need to do this within 6 months
of commencement of your website.
