We hate spam just as much as you do. We will never share your information with third parties unless required to do so by law or requested by you. The information we collect from you will be used to maintain your services with us and to represent the quality of our work to others, such as in our online portfolio. We however sometimes contract with international programmers or outsource some of the web programming, and will therefore provide certain information relevant to your web design to them. We will however not give out your name, phone number, personal email address or address. Unless the information will be required on your website.
II. OWNERSHIP OF WEBSITE DESIGN
Upon completion of a custom website design and payment of web design and development fees, the client is the owner of the commissioned website. The client may continue to use the commissioned website to promote the client’s company or organization regardless of whether he/she chooses to continue further services with APPTETA.COM . The client does not have the right to resell the design or development to other companies. The client does have the right to add pages onto the existing site or have another company add pages onto the existing site using the commissioned website design/development.
III. OWNERSHIP OF WEBSITE DOMAIN NAME
Website domain names are leased from domain name registration companies. When APPTETA.COM registers a domain name for a client, that registration will be made in the client’s name. Upon payment of any outstanding fees, the client has the right to use that domain name regardless of whether he/she chooses to continue further services with Griffin Web Design. Domain name renewal and renewal fees are the responsibility of the client. If the client chooses to have APPTETA.COM renew the domain name on behalf of the client, an additional service fee will apply. Clients are advised to closely monitor the renewal date of a registered domain name and to verify that the renewal of said domain name has been completed. APPTETA.COM cannot be responsible for expired domain names.
IV. OWNERSHIP AND COPYRIGHT
All text and photos used as content in a commissioned website must be provided by the client. The client must have ownership or written permission to use all content he/she provides for use. It is up to each client to ensure his/her esign and/or content does not infringe on any trademark, service mark, or copyright. APPTETA.COM cannot be responsible for intellectual property infringements on behalf of clients.
V. PROJECT INITIATION
The initiation of a web design or development project requires a signed or electronically submitted signup form, payment of half of the initial web design/development fees for custom website design or the entire setup fee for blogs or templates, plus the client logo or any other element that is required to be used in the design.
VI. HOW REVISIONS TO A WEBSITE DESIGN ARE HANDLED
We take pride in providing attractive designs, and the vast majority of our clients are extremely pleased with the design we create for them. However, design is a subjective art, and not everyone’s tastes are the same. While we will gladly make initial minor modifications for no additional charge, it is important to be clear on how revisions to the look of a website design are handled. The web design signup form is the contract which describes the look a commissioned web design project will achieve. Design preferences should be specified at that time, prior to the commencement of any design work. If any design preference stated in the web design signup form was not met, the adjustments will be made free of charge. If the client develops preferences or changes his/her mind after the completion of the work, adjustments will be made at an hourly rate agreed upon by client and APPTETA.COM.
VII. DESIGNS FOR SUB PAGES
Unless otherwise specified in the design contract, subpages of any website will use the same design as the home page. Mockups are not provided for sub pages. Formatting requests for sub pages will be considered but will not be guaranteed. If the client requires specific looks or formatting for sub pages, this request should be made at the time of the initial contract and may incur additional fees.
