Terms & Conditions

Website development

  1. Design Stage

    Once the agreement has been signed and the deposit received, the site will then be put online on a directory of the CLIENT's ISP or of TYSSEN DESIGN for the CLIENT's viewing. The annual web hosting timeframe begins when the initial deposit is made and the site is put online. Work on the actual design will then commence. The CLIENT will be presented with an image of the proposed design for approval. The CLIENT will have the chance to make two rounds of changes to the design during this phase.

  2. Web Page Development Stage

    When sign-off of the initial design has been received, work will commence on turning the design into an actual page (coding the page template). The CLIENT will then again be able to review the design and make a further two changes to the design before a final sign-off is required.

  3. Site Development Stage

    Once the web page template has been approved, it will form the basis for the rest of the site into which the content will then be added. This stage will be the lengthiest stage of the process and will require the most CLIENT contact as content is supplied and incorporated into the design. Once the site content has been finalised, The CLIENT will again have the chance to make a further two rounds of changes to correct any errors or omissions in content. Any changes in design (as opposed to content) during this phase will result in additional charges.

  4. Completion Stage

    The site will then undergo a final round of testing in currently available modern browsers (those that support CSS2 or higher). No guarantees can be made as to how pages will look in web browsers that are released after completion of the project. Following this, the project will then be considered complete. After final approval of the site, payment must be made before the site will be transferred to the server and web address which The CLIENT have chosen. If requested, any Search Engine Optimisation work will take place at this stage.

Website hosting

  1. As an Internet Service Provider, TYSSEN DESIGN provides a server computer that is integrated into the Internet. This server computer will send and receive information as related to the World Wide Web.
  2. If a domain name is needed for the website, TYSSEN DESIGN will suggest appropriate names and do a search to ascertain the availability of those names. The determination of a domain name's availability does not guarantee it will be still available at the time of registration.
  3. If needed, TYSSEN DESIGN will complete the necessary forms to register or transfer a domain name as selected by the CLIENT. Although TYSSEN DESIGN will submit forms to register a requested domain name in a timely fashion, TYSSEN DESIGN does not guarantee the availability of any domain name.
  4. The sending of spam, or unsolicited bulk email (UBE) is not permitted on accounts hosted by TYSSEN DESIGN.
  5. Website hosting runs from the beginning of this contract for a period of a one year at which time it will be automatically renewed for each subsequent year under the same agreement set forth in this contract and cost outlined in the attached Project Outline and Payment Schedule.


This CONTRACT does not constitute a maintenance contract. Web page maintenance will be the responsibility of the CLIENT unless otherwise arranged. Technical support for any faults that were not present at the time of payment of the final invoice will be subject to a separate agreement.
