Terms and conditions for Piefinch Creative

Here are the terms and conditions regarding all website design and services provided by Piefinch Creative dated 23 November 2016.

Please note these terms and conditions apply to all our customers who currently use any of our services.

New website contracts

This is how it works.

1. The client fills out a design brief, these can be accessed here. We will then provide you with a design for your website based on your preferences. We will send you the design and quote and await for your feedback. Once you are happy with the design the website is ready to be built.

Please note this design and quote will only be available for 30 days. If we do not hear back from you during this period we will assume that you are no longer interested and the original design will not be held.

2. Once the client has confirmed that they wish to go ahead with the website build the 1st payment is then due. Once the payment is received we will schedule in the build of your new website.

The question everyone asks is “how long does this take?” the answer is “it depends”. It is possible to build a website in 3 - 4 weeks if the client is quick at providing content, images and feedback, on average the time is 6 – 8 weeks. During the website build we keep the client updated at all times, they will be sent reviews of the site so that they monitor progress and also suggest any amendments.

Once the client is happy with the website to go live they must sign the site off.

Website content and images

We are not responsible for content we have received from you. Any content or image changes we make we ask you to check too in case there are any errors – errors do occur so it is always advisable to check any amendments. You are responsible for proof reading your site. We can advise you but we are not responsibly any incorrect information on your website.
