PAYMENT (where applicable)

50% of the agreed project fee, unless agreed otherwise, will be paid prior to work commencing. In the event of longer projects, all invoicing may be split into agreed milestone payments. The final payment will be taken upon completion of the finished project, prior to the website going “live”, at which point all outstanding payments will be due.

Website Hosting
Hosting rates will become effective once the website has been established. Hosting will be charged out at the current Hosting rate and will be charged yearly in advance. If you are not happy with your service then you can cancel your hosting immediately. From the time you receive your cancellation confirmation, you will no longer be billed by Webedge. No retrospective cancellation is possible. You are billed yearly in advance for your monthly subscription. All website hosting plans are non-refundable.

Project Postponement
If a project is postponed or cancelled by anyone other than Webedge after more than 50% completion then the balance of works will be invoiced and then completed at the customer’s continuation date (if any). If the project is cancelled before 50% completion then a refund will be issued minus charges accumulated by Webedge or any 3rd party costs that Webedge incurred during the project. These prices will be calculated at our standard design rate based on the hours already spent including any 3rd party costs. Initial deposit costs are non-refundable.

Webedge will notify you immediately of any changes in project development status, and make appropriate arrangements. If a project in development is cancelled by Webedge you will be refunded in full minus any 3rd party expenses providing you have not breached any of the terms and conditions set out here.

A request to cancel the project must be made in writing to Webedge and include the signature of the authoritative client.
