Web Development Contract Between You and Four V LLC
Fill out this form with your company information. This is a legal contract between your company and Four V LLC. After this form is submitted, we will sign it and send you a copy by email and/or USPS.
What do both parties agree to?
You: You have the authority to enter into this contract on behalf of yourself, your company, or your organization. You will give us the assets and information we tell you we need to complete the project. You will do this when we ask and provide it in the formats we ask for. You will review our work, provide feedback and approval in a timely manner too. Deadlines work two ways, so you will also be bound by the dates we set together.
Us: We have the experience and ability to do everything we have agreed with you and we will do it all professionally and promptly. We will endeavor to meet every deadline that is set and on top of that, we will maintain the confidentiality of everything you give us.
GETTING DOWN TO THE NITTY GRITTY, DESIGN
We create look-and-feel good designs and flexible layouts that adapt to the capabilities of many devices and screen sizes. We create designs repeatedly and use predominantly HTML and CSS so we will not waste time mocking up every template as a static visual. We may use visuals to indicate a creative direction (color, texture, and typography.)
Graphics and photographs
You should supply graphics files in an editable format. You should supply photographs in a high-resolution digital format. If you choose to buy stock photographs, we can suggest stock libraries. If you would like us to search for photographs for you, we can provide a separate estimate for that. Some stock photos have a cost attached to them. JPG or PNG graphics will be the best.
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.
We test our work in current versions of major desktop browsers including those made by Google (Chrome), Microsoft (Edge). We will not test in other older browsers unless we agreed separately.
Mobile browser testing
Mobile browser 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 are using. We test our devices on Android and Apple iPhones.
Bridge Street Hosting will be the hosting provider. We will work with you If you choose a different hosting company. After the 12 months from the date of this contract, you will be responsible for any hosting charges.
Websites are made by using several different types of software. This software is called plugins. If you are building a website that requires very specific/advanced functionality, then you will be better off with a premium plugin. In this case, it may require a subscription that would cover the cost of a plugin.
Bridge Street Hosting is the hosting provider. If there are any technical problems with the hosting we will call Bridge Street Hosting to have them fix any problem. If you have your website hosting through a different hosting provider we will do our best to work with them. If there is any technical problem with the website program, we will take care of that.
Search engine optimization (SEO)
We do not guarantee improvements to your website search engine ranking, but the web pages that we develop are accessible to search engines. We will register your website with Bing and Google. We will keep track of the number of visitors with Webmaster Tools through Google and Bing.
Changes and revisions
We do not want to limit your ability to change your mind. The price on the Web Design Proposal is based on the amount of time that we estimate we will need to accomplish everything you have told us you want to achieve, but we are happy to be flexible. If you want to change your mind or add anything new, that will not be a problem as we will provide a separate estimate for those additional hours.
We will carry out our work under good industry practice and at the standard expected from a suitably qualified person with relevant experience.
That said, we can not guarantee that our work will be error-free and so we can not 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 have advised us of them.
Your liability to us will also be limited to the number of fees payable under this contract and you will not be liable to us or any third party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings, or other incidental, consequential or special damages, even if we have advised you of them.
Finally, if any provision of this contract shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason is unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this contract 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 related rights, trademarks, service marks, 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.
Displaying our work
We love to show off our work, so we reserve the right to display all aspects of our creative work, including sketches, work-in-progress designs, and the completed project on our portfolio and in articles on websites, magazine articles, and books.
But where is all the horrible small print?
Just like a parking ticket, neither of us can transfer this contract to anyone else without the other’s permission.
All work completed and all expenses incurred by the Designer, up to the date and time of cancellation, shall be paid by the Client.
We both agree that we will adhere to all relevant laws and regulations in relation to our activities under this contract and not cause the other to breach any relevant laws or regulations.
This contract stays in place and need not be renewed. If for some reason one part of this contract becomes invalid or unenforceable, the remaining parts of it remain in place.
Although the language is simple, the intentions are serious, and this contract is a legal document.
