Terms & Conditions

Terms & Conditions

The following terms and conditions apply to websites commissioned BEFORE 16th June 2022. For our up-to-date terms and conditions, please here.

By ordering our website design service, this assumes your agreement of the following terms and conditions:

What does the fee cover?

This fee is levied on an ongoing basis. Our pricing model is different to the usual ‘one big lump sum up front approach’ that most website designers use when charging for the provision of a website. Our fee is a small, affordable monthly amount that covers: the registration and annual renewal of one domain for your website, ongoing website hosting, the setting up of business emails such as [email protected] and use via webmail (you can import these into your usual email software if you wish), the design of your website and the update of all software used in its design and maintenance.

Who owns the copyright to the text of the website?

Richard Boyd, owner of One Man Band Websites, will retain copyright except for that copy which has been supplied by you (the client).

Who owns the images?

You (the client) will own any images supplied. Any royalty-free stock images bought by One Man Band Websites for the purposes of developing a client’s website will be owned by ourselves.

Who owns the website design?

One Man Band Websites – if we have designed it.

Who owns the domain?

Any domain purchased by us for use on the website will be owned by One Man Band Websites. If a client wishes to purchase the domain after the minimum term this can be negotiated.

Can you (the client) buy the domain at some point in the future?

Yes. We are open to negotiation but only after the minimum term.

What is the ‘minimum term’?

The minimum term is 24 months. This is a reasonable time frame for us to recoup the time and expense incurred in developing and maintaining a client’s website.

What happens if you (as the client) want to stop the service before the minimum term (24 months)?

If you want to cancel the service within the first 24 months, he or she would be liable to pay the balance between the number of months paid and the minimum term of 24 months. The client can cancel the service after 24 months at any time with 1 month’s notice. The website will then be taken down.

What happens if you (the client) have supplied the images?

You own them!

Can you (the client) use the copy from the website in your brochures, flyers, leaflets and other sales and corporate literature?

We retain the copyright of any text created by us that is used on the website and for which a fee is normally applied for use elsewhere. However, if we provide you with other services – beyond the website – we may, as a goodwill gesture, waive this fee.

Who is this service open to?

Businesses with a turnover of up to £100,000 per annum. Different fees apply to businesses with a turnover of more than £100,000. Please ask for a bespoke quotation.

We supply up to 2 stock images per page for your website. Extra royalty-free images are charged at £20 each. If you (the client) pays for the extra images you would own those images.

Disclaimer: Just having a website will not guarantee that you get business from it. Most websites require a significant amount of other work in order to attract visitors – from which sales enquiries may come. If you are interested in attracting visitors to your website in order to increase the probability of generating sales enquiries from your website, please contact us at [email protected] or 01204 275 168 to ask about our local search marketing services or click here.

Please direct any other questions or queries to [email protected] or ring 01204 275 168.
