The following terms and conditions apply to all website development, software development / design services provided by Taxi Elite - trading as Watt Software 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 requests an invoice 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 Watt Software are defined in the project quotation that the Client receives via e-mail. Quotations are valid for a period of 30 days. Watt Software 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 setup fee depending on the product / package selected before the work is commenced. Most Watt Software products require monthly payments which cover, support, maintnenance, hosting and domain name rental.
Once the Website / Software has been completed than the Client will be sent a link for them to go through and suggest any changes that maybe required.
Please note that none of the Watt Software products allow clients to view or copy our source code.
The reasons for this are that our software is only hosted on our specially configured servers and will not run on other servers. Also Clients have the ability to edit their software / website through the administration centre of the software / website.
Payment for services is due by bank transfer or through World Pay using our sales website or payment link etc. Bank details will be made available on the Clients invoices.
Watt Software 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 Watt Software otherwise within ten (10) days of the date the materials are made available to the Client.
Watt Software will install and publicly post or supply the Client's website / software by the date specified in the project proposal, or at date agreed with Client upon Watt Software receiving initial payment, unless a delay is specifically requested by the Client and agreed by Watt Software.
In return, the Client agrees to delegate a single individual as a primary contact to aid Watt Software with progressing the commission in a satisfactory and expedient manner.
During the project, Watt Software will require the Client to provide information to be used to create your project.
Watt Software is a small business, to remain efficient we must ensure that work we have programmed is carried out at the scheduled time. On occasions 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 as soon as possible after paying your setup fee. On any occasion where progress cannot be made with your website because we have not been given the required information in the agreed time frame, and we are delayed as result, we reserve the right to impose a surcharge.
If you agree to provide us with the required information and subsequently fail to do within one week of project commencement we reserve the right to close the project and the balance remaining becomes payable immediately. Simply put, all the above condition says is do not give us the go ahead to start until you are ready to do so.
Invoices will be provided by Watt Software before the job commences. Invoices are normally sent via email; however, the Client may choose to receive hard copy invoices. Invoices are due upon receipt. Please note that we do not work on a credit basis unless you are a customer that has been with us a while.
Watt Software makes every effort to ensure websites / cloud software is designed to be viewed by the majority of visitors. Websites are designed to work with the most popular current browsers (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer 8 & 9, Google Chrome, etc.). Client agrees that Watt Software cannot guarantee correct functionality with all browser software across different operating systems.
Watt Software cannot accept responsibility for web pages which do not display acceptably in new versions of browsers released after the website have been designed and handed over to the Client. As such, Watt Software reserves the right to quote for any work involved in changing the website design or website code for it to work with updated browser software.
Accounts unpaid thirty (30) days after the date of invoice will be considered in default. If the Client in default maintains any information or files on Watt Software's Web space, Watt Software will, at its discretion, remove all such material from its web space. Watt Software is not responsible for any loss of data incurred due to the removal of the service. Removal of such material does not relieve the Client of the obligation to pay any outstanding charges assessed to the Client's account. Clients with accounts in default agree to pay Watt Software reasonable expenses, including legal fees and costs for collection by third-party agencies, incurred by Watt Software in enforcing these Terms and Conditions.
Termination of services by the Client must be requested in a written notice and will be effective on receipt of such notice. E-mail or telephone requests for termination of services will not be honoured until and unless confirmed in writing. The Client will be invoiced for design work completed to the date of first notice of cancellation for payment in full within thirty (30) days.
