3. Website Design
(a) Site Design
We will make every effort to design your customized site in the shortest possible time. We cannot provide any guaranteed timescale as each site will have its own level of complexity.
In the case of a mobilized site, your site will be designed based on the colour scheme and graphics on your existing desktop site and we will combine pages where necessary to bring the number of front page links down.
(b) Completion of Site
Once you have agreed to, and paid for, the design, the new site will be considered complete and any subsequent changes will be subject to an additional charge as outlined on the fees page.
In the case of a mobilized site, once you have agreed to, and paid for, the design, the new mobilized site will reside on our servers until the end of the 30-day guarantee period. Under no circumstances will a mobilized site be released inside this guarantee period. At the end of the 30-day guarantee period we will either continue to host your mobilized site or release it to you according to your instructions. Should you decide not to take advantage of our Hosting Service, we will provide you with a zipped file containing your new mobilized site and full instructions for installing it with your existing webhost. We can do this work for you as a courtesy service. However, should you decide to do this yourself we will not be held liable for any damage, data loss or any other inconvenience to you or your customers resulting from your actions. Should you decide to take advantage of the 30-day money-back guarantee we will issue a refund of your fee within 7 days and immediately remove your site from our servers. In addition we will provide you with full instructions on how to remove the redirect code from your existing desktop site.
