Please read through these Terms and Conditions carefully before using Ahmed Technologies’s (T/A Web Digital) services and/or website. By engaging in services with Ahmed Technologies (T/A Web Digital), or by using Ahmed Technologies’s (T/A Web Digital) website, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. These Terms and Conditions are subject to change and it is your responsibility to check any changes.
The terms “Ahmed Technologies”, “we”, “us” and “our” in this document refers to Ahmed Technologies Ltd, a legal entity whose employees have limited liability, as defined in the New Zealand Companies Act 1993.
The agreement is governed by the following terms & conditions.
We will always do our best to fulfill your needs and meet your goals, but sometimes it’s best to have a few things written down so that we both know what’s what, who should do what and what happens if stuff goes wrong. In this contract, you won’t find complicated legal terms or long passages of unreadable text. We have no desire to trick you into signing something that you might later regret. We do want what’s best for the safety of both parties, now and in the future.
What do both parties agree to do?
As our customer, you have the power and ability to enter this contract on behalf of your company or organization. You agree to provide us with everything that we’ll need to complete the project – including text, images, and other information – as and when we need it and, in the format, we ask for. You agree to review our work, provide feedback and approval in a timely manner too. Deadlines work two ways and you’ll also be bound by any dates that we set together. You also agree to stick to the payment schedule set out at the end of this contract.
We have the experience and ability to perform the services you need from us and we will carry them out in a professional and timely manner. Along the way, we will endeavor to meet all the deadlines set but we can’t be responsible for a missed launch date or a deadline if you have been late in supplying materials or have not approved or signed off our work on-time at any stage. On top of this, we’ll also maintain the confidentiality of any information that you give us.
Details of the works
We will create designs for the look, layout, and functionality of your website. This contract includes one main design and two opportunities for you to make revisions to the final design (before the website is built/developed). If you are not happy with the design at that point, we will provide you with an additional quote for extra design work needed. If instead, you wish to cancel our agreement, you may do so and we will retain the initial payment for the work done to date.
Please note if you want to make any changes in the design after the website is developed/built, there will be extra charges to do it.
HTML/CSS layout templates
If the project includes HTML markup and CSS templates, we’ll develop these using valid HTML and CSS code. The landscape of web browsers and devices changes regularly, and our approach is to look forward, not back. With that in mind, we will test all our markup and CSS in current versions of all major desktop browsers to ensure that we make the most from them. Users of older or less capable browsers or devices will experience a design that is appropriate to the capabilities of their software
We do not cater to people using Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 and cannot predict the behavior of that browser
We will also test that these templates perform well on Apple’s iPad. We will not test old or abandoned browsers, for example, Microsoft Internet Explorer 6,7,8 or 5.5 for Windows or Mac, previous versions of Apple’s Safari, Mozilla Firefox, or Opera unless otherwise specified. If you need us to consider these older browsers, we will charge you at our standard old browser rate for any necessary additional design work, development, and testing.
We will not be responsible for writing or inputting any text copy. We will be happy to help, but significant work on our part will result in a charge above and beyond the original price. This will not be done without your approval of an additional quote provided in advance.
If the website requires uploading products or content on the website, it will be charged extra. Please note the proposal does not include the cost to upload any product or text content to the website.
If needed, you will supply us with all photographs either in digital or printed format. If you choose to buy stock photographs that price will be added to the initial quote. Stock photography will not be purchased without your written approval.
Changes and revisions
We know from plenty of experience that fixed-price contracts are rarely beneficial to you, as they often limit you to your first idea about how something should look, or how it might work. We don’t want to limit either your options or your opportunities to change your mind. The estimate/quotation prices at the beginning of this document are based on the amount of work we estimate we’ll need to accomplish everything that you have told us you want to achieve. If you do want to change your mind, add extra pages or templates or even add new functionality, that won’t be a problem. However, you will be charged accordingly, and these additional costs will need to be agreed to before the extra work commences. This additional work will affect deadlines and they will be moved accordingly. We’ll be upfront about all of this when it happens to make sure we’re all on the same page before proceeding. We may also ask you to put requests in writing, so we can keep track of changes. If the nature or functions of the project change significantly throughout the process, we reserve the right to deem the current project canceled. At this point, you will pay us in full for all the work we have done and may commission us to complete the new project based on the new requirements. This will require a new quote and contract.
We provide technical support after website completion, however, it is charged according to our standard support rates.
The proposal includes monthly website hosting fees. This includes a one-off fee for installing your site on this server, plus any statistics software such as Google Analytics, then the updates to, and management of that server, plus any support issues will be up to you. Please note the hosting period starts when we set up and install the website on our test server and send a link to you for your review.
