Website Service

This part of the terms of service applies to you only if you purchase a website service from Vogel Marketing.

Agreement

You: You’ll give me the assets and information I’ll tell you we need to complete the project. You’ll do this when I ask and provide it in the formats I ask for. You’ll review my work, provide feedback and approval in a timely manner too. Deadlines work two ways, so you’ll also be bound by dates we set together.

Me: I have the experience and ability to do everything I’ve agreed with you and I’ll do it all in a professional and timely manner. I’ll endeavour to meet every deadline that’s set and on top of that I’ll maintain the confidentiality of everything you give me.

Details

Design

I create designs that adapt to the capabilities of many devices and screen sizes. I create them iteratively and use predominantly a flexible WordPress theme along with simple HTML and CSS customizations so I won’t waste time mocking up every template as a static visual. I may use visuals to indicate a creative direction (colour, texture and typography.) I call that ‘drafts.’

You’ll have plenty of opportunities to review my work and provide feedback. I’ll either share a review tool or development site with you and we’ll have regular, possibly daily contact by either text, iMessage, FaceTime, or Google Meet.

If—at any stage—you change your mind about what you want delivered or aren’t happy with the direction my work is taking, you’ll pay me in full for the time I’ve spent working until that point.

Text Content

Unless agreed separately, I’m responsible for inputting text or images into your website or creating every page on your website. Part of the creation process includes my professional copywriting and editing services during the drafting stage, so if you’d like me to create new content or input content for you past the final draft, I’ll provide a separate estimate.

Graphics and Photographs

You should supply graphic files in an editable, vector digital format. You should supply photographs in a high resolution digital format. If you choose to buy stock photographs, I can suggest stock libraries. 

In the initial drafting of a web site landing page, if you have not provided images, I will use free stock images while drafting to help me in the creative process. The images I will use separate of the images that you provide can be used in the final draft if you agree that they will work. If you’d like me to search for photographs for you, I can provide a separate estimate.

HTML, CSS and JavaScript

I deliver pages with small amounts of custom CCS or HTML elements for styling and unobtrusive JavaScript for behaviours.

Browser Testing

Browser testing no longer means attempting to make a website look the same in browsers of different capabilities or on devices with different size screens. It does mean ensuring that a person’s experience of a design should be appropriate to the capabilities of a browser or device.

I test my work in current versions of major desktop browsers including those made by Apple (Safari) and Google (Chrome). I won’t test in other older browsers unless we agreed separately. 

Mobile Browser Testing

Testing using popular smaller screen devices is essential in ensuring that a person’s experience of a design is appropriate to the capabilities of the device they’re using. I test my designs in:

iOS: Safari
Android: Google Chrome

I won’t test in Opera Mini/Mobile, specific Android devices, or other mobile browsers unless we agreed separately. If you need my to test using these, I can provide a separate estimate.

Technical Support

I offer limited support for website hosting, email, and other services relating to hosting. 

Here are a few of the services I provide:

  • Website hosting: I host your site for a monthly fee. 
  • Domain hosting: I manage your website domain an provide privacy protection for a yearly fee.
  • Email: I provide you with pop3 and IMAP credentials based on your domain, but setting up custom email with a service like GSuite or Outlook is up to you. 
  • Analytics software: If you want any statistics software such as Google Analytics, I will provide a separate estimate for that.

Domain and Website Transfer

I help you with transferring your existing domain and website hosting to my hosting platform, provided:

  • You have an existing website built with wordpress.org
  • Your current website is updated to full functionality with the latest version of wordpress.org.
  • You have (or can get) owner/admin access to your website
  • You have (or can get) owner/admin access to your domain transfer settings

If your website or domain doesn’t meet the above requirements, I will not transfer your existing web site or domain, resulting in a new web site build and a new domain. 

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

I don’t guarantee improvements to your website’s search engine ranking, but the pages that I develop are accessible to search engines.

Changes and Revisions

I don’t want to limit your ability to change your mind. The price you pay is based on the number of weeks that I estimate I’ll need to accomplish everything you’ve told me you want to achieve, but I’m happy to be flexible. If you want to change your mind or add anything new, that won’t be a problem as I’ll provide a separate estimate for additional time I spend.

Legal

I’ll carry out our work in accordance with good industry practice and at the standard expected from a suitably qualified person with relevant experience. That said, I can’t guarantee that my work will be error-free and so I can’t be liable to you or any third-party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages, even if you’ve advised me of them.

Your liability to me will also be limited to the amount of fees payable under this agreement and you won’t be liable to me or any third-party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages, even if I’ve advised you of them.

Finally, if any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

Intellectual Property Rights

Just to be clear, “Intellectual property rights” means all patents, rights to inventions, copyright (including rights in software and video) and related rights, trademarks, service marks, get up and trade names, internet domain names, rights to goodwill or to sue for passing off, rights in designs, database rights, rights in confidential information (including know-how) and any other intellectual property rights, in each case whether registered or unregistered and including all applications (or rights to apply) for, and renewals or extensions of, such rights and all similar or equivalent rights or forms of protection which subsist or shall subsist now or in the future in any part of the world.

First, you guarantee that all elements of text, images, video or other artwork you provide are either owned by your good selves, or that you’ve permission to use them. When you provide text, images, video or other artwork to me, you agree to protect me from any claim by a third party that I’m using their intellectual property.

I guarantee that all elements of the work I deliver to you are either owned by me or I’ve obtained permission to provide them to you. When I provide text, images, video or other artwork to you, I agree to protect you from any claim by a third party that you’re using their intellectual property. Provided you’ve paid for the work and that this contract hasn’t been terminated, I’ll assign all intellectual property rights to you as follows:

  • You’ll own the website I design for you plus the visual elements that I create for it. I’ll give you access to the source files and finished files and you should keep them somewhere safe as I’m not required to keep a copy. You own all intellectual property rights of text, images, video, site specification and data you provided, unless someone else owns them.
  • I’ll own any intellectual property rights I’ve developed prior to, or developed separately from this project and not paid for by you. I’ll own the unique combination of these elements that constitutes a complete design and I’ll license its use to you, exclusively and in perpetuity for this project only, unless we agree otherwise.

Displaying My Work

I love to show off my work, so I reserve the right to display all aspects of my creative work, including sketches, work-in-progress designs and the completed project on my portfolio, in online video content, and in articles on websites, in magazine articles and in books.
