Scope Of Services
GES shall perform the services, including the Website Project, set forth in the Service Agreement (the “Services”) in accordance with the Service Agreement. The design of the website shall be in conformity with the plan outlined in the Project Proposal. The Customer will be responsible for providing direction to GES and for delivering content for Custom Website Design, Web Application Development, CMS, E-Commerce Solutions, Software Development, ERP, CRM, SEO, Cloud Computing, and Mobile Application Development, including text and images. GES may elect, in its sole discretion, to exclude from the website any text, graphics, sound, or animations: (a) that might be viewed as obscene or involving any illegal activities, or which have link(s) to another website(s) having content that might be viewed as obscene or involving any illegal activities; and/or (b) that GES determines would violate any trademark rights or copyrights of any third party.
We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to make revisions to the design. However, we have the right to limit the number of design proposals to a reasonable amount and may charge for additional designs if you make a change to the original design specification. Our website development phase is flexible and allows certain variations to the original specification. However, any major deviation from the specification will be charged.
Project Delays And Client Liability
Any time frames or estimates that we give are contingent upon your full co-operation along with complete and final content for the work pages. During development, there is a certain amount of feedback required in order to progress to subsequent phases. It is required that a single point of contact be appointed from your side and be made available on a daily basis in order to expedite the feedback process. We will not be responsible if the web design project remains largely unfinished or is delayed, due to your own inaction, or by not approving design mockups / requesting web design changes on time. After the initial 45 calendar days, if the project is still unfinished, charges would be billed for any further change request.
Approval And Rejected Of Work
On completion of the work, you will be notified and have the opportunity to review it. You must notify us in writing of any unsatisfactory points within 7 days of such notification. Any of the work which has not been reported in writing to us as unsatisfactory within the 7-day review period will be deemed to have been approved. Once approved, or deemed approved, work cannot subsequently be rejected and the contract will be deemed to have been completed and the 50% balance of the project price will become due.
If you reject any of our work within the 7-day review period and not approve subsequent work performed by us to remedy any points recorded as being unsatisfactory, and we, acting reasonably, consider that you have been unreasonable in any rejection of the work, we can elect to treat this contract as complete and take measures to recover payment for the contracted work.
