WordPress & Theme Builder
Unless otherwise agreed, we deliver websites using WordPress CMS and either the Divi Theme Builder or another website builder.
WordPress is an easy to use and intuitive system and you should mostly be able to use it without referring to tutorials. Please note: one-to-one tuition is not included in our web design price, although if you have tried unsuccessfully to find the answer on your own by looking at the documentation provided, forums or YouTube tutorials, please feel free to email us and will I endeavour to help you.
Legal, Damages & Liabilites
We’ll carry out our work in accordance with good industry practice and at the standard expected from a suitably qualified person with relevant experience.
That said, we can’t guarantee that our work will be error-free and so we can’t 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’ve advised us of them. Finally, if any provision of this contract should 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.
In the unlikely event that a client’s website should experience technical difﬁculty, or downtime post handover (full payment or invoice) – the designer accepts no responsibility and shall not be held liable for any ﬁnancial loss suffered by the client as a result.

I’m sure you understand how important it is as a freelance business that you pay the invoices that I send you promptly. As I’m also sure you’ll want to build a trusted relationship, you agree to stick tight, to the following payment schedule.
We issue invoices electronically
Our payment terms are 7 days from the date of invoice by PayPal or by another pre-agreed payment processing service.
Failure to pay the final amount will result in your site being removed from the internet until payment is made. Unfortunately, we are only able to keep the offline files associated with your website for a limited time (30 days).
Reinstating your site after this period will require a fresh design quote & possible admin fees.
Please be aware – in order to make space for other clients, we may well have to delete your files permanently after the 30 day period is up.
Web Design Services & Search Engine Optimisation
- 50% initiation fee (non-refundable) and 50% on Final Approval (before we give you access to the backend of your site.)
Website Maintenance & Other Subscriptions Services
- This Website features services that are offered via a subscription model. A subscription model requires regular monthly payments to receive a service.
Hourly Rates for Maintenance & Additional Services
- Unless otherwise agreed I charge £20 Per hour.
For Urgent Content Updates
Emergencies happen and I’m more than happy to accommodate urgent requests. However, my schedule is typically planned out a week or two. Taking on a last-minute job means making adjustments to the project board. In some cases, it may mean other projects have to be shifted about in order to accommodate urgent requests. With this in mind, should you have an emergency and need urgent updates or fixes to your site, the below rates apply.

We undertake no obligation to update, amend or clarify information in the Service or on any related website, including without limitation, pricing information, except as required by law.
