Terms & Conditions/Disclaimer

Payment Terms

Payment for the creation of websites is due in two simple, distinct phases:

  1. The first 50% of the website price (+ full price of SSL Certificate, if required) is due upon the client agreeing upon a design and agreeing that the design shall be coded into a functioning website (which until launch, is hidden from public view and not indexed by the major search engines, although it is available to view for the client and Dearne Valley Web Design).
  2. The 2nd and final installment is due upon the client agreeing that the website should go live, and upon Dearne Valley Web Design launching the site and, including submitting the website to the Google search engine.

Search Engine Optimisation

Due to the dynamic and volatile nature of the modern Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) industry, Dearne Valley Web Design does not make any promises or predictions regarding any website’s search engine ranking.
