These indemnification obligations endure beyond the termination or expiration of this Agreement or your use of the Site or its Services.
9. DATA TRANSFER
Engaging with SDG from another jurisdiction involves information transfer across borders. Electronic communication implies your consent to such transfers.
10. SITE AVAILABILITY
We strive for continuous Site availability but acknowledge occasional interruptions. SDG isn't liable for access problems beyond our control.
All work will follow the agreed-upon quotation, including project scope, timeline, deliverables, and costs.
Clients must thoroughly understand and approve the quotation terms before confirming. Additional work or amendments will incur extra costs, subject to mutual agreement.
The Company may revise the quotation due to changes in project scope. Revised quotes will be submitted for client approval before proceeding.
Unless stated otherwise, all expenses are included in the final invoice.
12. ASSOCIATED PROJECT EXPENSES
Project costs align with consultations, but the final quote reflects actual expenses. Transparency is our ethos.
13. INVOICING AND PAYMENT
Invoices will be sent according to the specified timelines in the quote and statement of work. Payment is required upon receipt.
Payments for services can be made through bank transfer or online via a payment gateway.
If the Client fails to make timely payments, they will be charged interest at a rate of 4% per annum above the Bank of England’s base rate. This interest accrues daily from the due date until the overdue amount is paid, pre or post-judgment. The Client must pay the interest along with the overdue amount.
Accounts unpaid for thirty (30) days after the invoice date will be considered in default. In case of default, the Company may, at its discretion, remove any material from its web space. The company is not liable for any data loss due to service removal. Removal of material doesn't exempt the Client from paying outstanding charges. Clients with defaulting accounts agree to cover the Company's reasonable expenses, including legal fees and costs for third-party collection agencies.
14. 25% DEPOSIT
Clients are required to make a non-refundable deposit of 25% of the project cost before commencing any work. This deposit covers initial project costs and may also address other necessary expenses. It doesn't guarantee the final project cost or cover the entire expense.
The 25% deposit, based on the estimated project cost, is non-refundable and will be forfeited if the client cancels the project or alters the scope after work begins. The deposit is applied to the final invoice, which reflects the actual time spent and expenses incurred during the project.
15. PROJECT ADJUSTMENTS
As part of our project management, we incorporate a streamlined process for project adjustments. If your needs evolve or you require additional features after accepting the statement of work or once the Company initiates the project, we encourage you to send an email detailing the requested changes. We'll assess the feasibility of these adjustments and discuss any potential impact on costs.
16. FAILURE TO PROVIDE INFORMATION
The Company is responsible for ensuring that the scheduled work is executed and completed within the agreed-upon timeline outlined in the statement of work.
The Client must furnish all necessary information and materials for the project in advance, along with any additional details upon request. If progress is hindered or delayed due to the Client's failure to provide the required information or materials within the agreed time frame, the Company reserves the right to impose a surcharge of up to 25% of the charges.
If the Client commits to supplying the Company with the necessary information or materials and fails to do so within one week of the agreement, the Company reserves the right to terminate the project, and the remaining balance becomes immediately payable.
17. CLIENT REVIEW
Upon completion of the project, the Company will allow the Client to review the finalized deliverables. These materials will be considered accepted and approved unless the Client notifies the Company otherwise within five (5) working days from the date the materials are made available unless otherwise specified in the statement of work.
18. RIGHT TO WITHDRAW
Company reserves the right to discontinue any Services at its discretion, without prior notice or for any reason. Despite efforts to maximize Service lifespan, discontinuations may occur, ceasing Company support. In such cases, the Company will provide an alternative Service for migration or offer a refund. Company holds no liability for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of Services, impacting you or any third party.
19. REFUND POLICY
Upon acceptance of a quote and payment, the deposit is refundable within 5 days of accepting the quote and if no work has commenced. If a project is cancelled, delayed, or postponed by the customer, the deposit is non-refundable, and additional charges may apply for completed work. Completed projects, as per the defined scope, are non-refundable.
20. NO THIRD-PARTY SERENADE
This Agreement does not grant any rights or benefits to third parties.
