Terms and Conditions
The following terms and conditions apply to all website design/development services provided by Codex8 Web Design to the Client.
It is not necessary for any Client to have signed an acceptance of these terms and conditions for them to apply. If a Client accepts a quote then the Client will be deemed to have satisfied themselves as to the terms applying and have accepted these terms and conditions in full.
Please read these terms and conditions carefully. Any purchase or use of our services implies that you have read and accepted our terms and conditions.
Charges for services to be provided by Codex8 Web Design are defined in the project quotation that the Client receives via e-mail. Quotations are valid for a period of 30 days. Codex8 Web Design reserves the right to alter or decline to provide a quotation after expiry of the 30 days.
Unless agreed otherwise with the Client, all website design services require an advance payment of a minimum of twenty percent of the project quotation total before any work is undertaken. Payment of the balance due is required after completion of the web design/development work and prior to upload to the server or release of materials to the client and/or their assignees.
Payment for services is due by bank transfer or cash. Bank details will be made available on invoices.
3. Client Review
Codex8 Web Design will provide the Client with an opportunity to review the appearance and content of the website during the design phase and once the overall website development is completed. At the completion of the project, such materials will be deemed to be accepted and approved unless the Client notifies Codex8 Web Design otherwise within ten (10) days of the date the materials are made available to the Client.
4. Turnaround Time and Content Control
Codex8 Web Design will install and publicly post or supply the Client’s website by the date specified in the project proposal, or at a date agreed with Client upon Codex8 Web Design receiving full payment. In return, the Client agrees to delegate a single individual as a primary contact to aid Codex8 Web Design with progressing the commission in a satisfactory and expedient manner.
During the project, Codex8 Web Design will require the Client to provide website content; text, images, movies and sound files & any other content proposed for the website design.
5. Failure to provide required website content
For Codex8 Web Design to remain efficient we must ensure that work we have programmed is carried out at the scheduled time. On occasion we may have to reject offers for other work and enquiries to ensure that your work is completed at the time arranged.
This is why we ask that you provide all the required information in advance. On any occasion where progress cannot be made with your website because we have not been given the required information in the agreed timeframe, and we are delayed as a result, we reserve the right to impose a surcharge of up to 25%. If your project involves Search Engine Optimisation we require the text content for your site in advance so that the SEO can be planned and completed efficiently.
If the client agrees to provide us with the required information and subsequently fail to do so within one week of project commencement, we reserve the right to close the project and the balance remaining becomes payable immediately. Simply put, the client should not give the go ahead to start until they are ready to do so.
NOTE: Text content should be delivered as a Microsoft Word, email (or similar) document with the pages in the supplied document representing the content of the relevant pages on the proposed website. These pages should have the same titles as the agreed website pages.
Using the content management system the client has the facility to keep their website content up to date themselves.
Invoices will be provided by Codex8 Web Design upon completion but before publishing the live website. Invoices are normally sent via email in PDF format; however, the Client may choose to receive hard copy invoices. Invoices are due upon receipt. Accounts that remain unpaid seven days after the date of the invoice will be assessed and may incur a service charge in the amount of the higher of one and one-half percent (1.5%) of the total amount due or €50 per month .
7. Additional Expenses
The Client agrees to reimburse Codex8 Web Design for any additional expenses necessary for the completion of the work. Examples would be purchase of special fonts, stock photography etc. These additional expenses will not be incurred without written consent for the client.
8. Web Browsers
Codex8 Web Design makes every effort to ensure websites are designed to be viewed by the majority of visitors.

The Client agrees that Codex8 Web Design cannot guarantee correct functionality with all browser software across different operating systems. Codex8 Web Design cannot accept responsibility for web pages which do not display acceptably in new versions of browsers released after the website completion and publication. As such, Codex8 Web Design reserves the right to quote for further design or coding to enable functionality with updated browser software.
Accounts unpaid seven (7) days after the date of invoice will be considered in default. If the Client in default maintains any information or files on Codex8 Web Design’s web space, Codex8 Web Design will, at its discretion, remove all such material from its web space.
