The following terms and conditions apply to all web site design services offered by Harlequeen Webs. By ordering services from Harlequeen Webs you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions.

We reserve the right to refuse to construct a web site which we may 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.

The acceptance of a commission shall be deemed as a contractual agreement between the client and Harlequeen Webs. Payment for commissions will be as follows: 33% deposit, final payment on completion/publication of website.

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. All such material will be assumed to be the property of the client and free to use without fear of breach of copyright laws.

The copyright for all material provided by Harlequeen Webs, such as HTML code, JavaScript, MySQL, PHP, , graphics, photographs and text, will remain the property of Harlequeen Webs until such time as payment has been made in full whereupon they will become the property of the client.

Harlequeen Webs makes every effort to design pages which display acceptably in the two most popular current browsers (MS Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator), but cannot accept responsibility for pages which do not display acceptably in new versions of browsers released after pages have been designed.

Harlequeen Webs will submit a client's website to several of the major search engines as part of the design commission although high placing's in search engine results cannot be guaranteed. Harlequeen Webs can accept no 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.

Harlequeen Webs will initially place the client's website on one of Harlequeen Webs's demonstration servers in order that the client may view and comment upon the website's progress. When both Harlequeen Webs and the client agree that the website meets the criteria agreed during the commissioning process, Harlequeen Webs will invoice the client for the full amount due for the commission. On receipt of payment, Harlequeen Webs will publish the website on the client's server, or provide the source code for the site via cd-rom disk for the client to upload.

If at any point during the website development period a client wishes to cancel, they may do so but will be invoiced an amount that Harlequeen Webs judges to be proportional to the amount of work completed and costs incurred on the commission.

If, during the website development period, the client does not supply the content required in order to complete the commission within a reasonable amount of time, Harlequeen Webs may consider that the client wishes to cancel the commission and the client will be invoiced in line with the charges out lined in the above point.

Harlequeen Webs payment terms are payment by cheque, Nochex or cash within 14 days of the date on the invoice.

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.

Harlequeen Webs does not undertake to maintain or update a client's website as part of the design commission, maintenance may be negotiated separately.

Harlequeen Webs reserves the right to alter prices at any time without notice. If a client has commissioned any services from Harlequeen Webs 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.

Your statutory rights are not affected by agreement to these terms and conditions.
