Collingwood Creative Web Design Monthly Packages

Introduction

We’ll always do our best to fulfill your needs and meet your expectations, but it’s important to have things written down so that we both know what’s what, who should do what, and when, and what will happen if something goes wrong. In this contract, you won’t find any complicated legal terms or long passages of unreadable text. We’ve no desire to trick you into signing something that you might later regret. What we do want is what’s best for both parties, now and in the future.

In a Nutshell

You are hiring Collingwood Creative Web Design by In Bloom Digital to build your business a new website for the agreed-upon price for a duration of 24 months. After 24 months your contractual obligation is completed, at which time you will roll into our month-to-month management plan, or you may take your website and leave Collingwood Creative Web Design by In Bloom Digital. If you choose not to cancel after 24 months, you will continue to use our services month to month for the cost of your plan, which can be canceled at any time. 

What do Both Parties Agree to

The Client (That’s you)

You have the authority to enter into this contract on behalf of yourself, your company, or your organization. You’ll give us the assets and information we tell you we need to complete the project. You’ll do this when we ask and provide it in the formats we ask for. You’ll review our work, provide feedback and approval in a timely manner too. Deadlines work two ways, so you’ll also be bound to keep the project moving speedily. You also agree to stick to the payment schedule set out by the terms of the subscription billing.

Collingwood Creative Web Design. (That’s me)

We have the experience and ability to do everything we’ve agreed with you, and we’ll do it all in a professional and timely manner. We’ll endeavor to meet every deadline that’s set and on top of that, we’ll maintain the confidentiality of everything you give us.

Project Timeline

Our typical development time is approximately four to six weeks. Add-on services may add up to 1 business day onto our project timeline per add-on item. Custom websites will take longer typically adding an additional 2 weeks to your timeline. Typical correspondence from both parties should be no more than one business day. Any wait time beyond this may add additional time to the project being launched. Our development time is accounting for our deliverability but does not account for any additional time added to the project by the client requesting multiple revisions or lacking in communication. These extenuating factors will delay your project timeframe.
