10. Website Construction Procedure

With help and input from the Client, Ram Web Consulting will develop the website. Client must submit content through email before work may begin on the development of the website. Client must electronically accept the TOS before access is granted to send content via email. After content is submitted by the Client the website is developed. Prior to the website being taken live the client will receive a missing information notification if content is incomplete. Client will then have two weeks to submit complete content. If complete content is not received the website will then be taken live “as-is”. If the website is taken live without all of the pages completed due to incomplete content those pages may be banked and developed in the future using Client’s design time.

 

In submitting content through email, links to sample sites the Client likes are for general information purposes only and assist Ram Web Consulting with the design of the Client’s custom website. The functionality and detail of the sample sites will not be duplicated unless such functionality and detail are specifically included and itemized in Ram Web Consulting's invoice and do not infringe upon the intellectual property rights of others.

 

The design and content layout are presented to the Client for approval. After the Client approves the website, the website will go live. The Ram Web Consulting QC team may review the text before site goes live to correct any possible errors. Ram Web Consulting will not be held liable for accuracy of information, typos, or spelling errors in any of the content approved by the Client and published on the website. Client will be notified by email that the website is now live.

 

Client understands, agrees and acknowledges that Ram Web Consulting does not guarantee a time frame for completion of ANY website. A website cannot be completed without submission of complete content, design approvals and participation from the Client. If Client continues submitting additional content throughout the development process, the completion time frame is increased. If Client does not submit complete content and Ram Web Consulting is not able to start or complete the website, Client is still responsible for all fees incurred including, but not limited to, design purchase price, set-up fees, enhancements purchased and hosting charges that begin accruing from date of sale. If Client’s website requires custom programming, functionality, flash, e-commerce or the use of a database, the overall development time will be extended.

 

Client is provided with a space holder immediately after sale. Upon request, Client is also provided with an optional welcome website shortly after the initial sale. The welcome website is a temporary website Client can modify and send customers to while the custom website is being built. Client may choose not to have a welcome website if so desired.

The Client understands and agrees that if the Client does not respond within 5 business days to Ram Web Consulting's request for approval and notification that the website has been completed, the website along with the functionality of the website and services rendered, will be deemed to be approved by the Client, and the website will be taken live “as-is”.

 

The Client understands and agrees that if the Client does not respond to requests for missing information a final notification will be sent to the Client. If the Client does not respond within 5 business days to Ram Web Consulting's notification or requests for missing information, the website, along with the functionality of the website and the services rendered, will be deemed to be approved by the Client, and the website will be taken live with the missing information “as-is” or “under construction”.

 

In the event that Ram Web Consulting completes all of the work per the original sale and database write ups, Ram Web Consulting reserves the right to move the site live and deem the work to be completed without Client’s permission if Client will not give approval of the work.

 

12. Website Change Requests Before and After Website Goes Live

Ram Web Consulting agrees to build a website and/or database to specifications quoted per the original sale and original invoice. Any additions or changes requested outside of the scope of the original sale, either prior to the custom website going live, or after the site has gone live, will be billed at Ram Web Consulting's standard hourly rate.

There is no guarantee that changes made by Ram Web Consulting to a pre-packaged database, pre-built database module, or e-commerce store module will work.

The hosting fee will be adjusted according to the enhancements requested or the hosting package selected by Client.

 

Some enhancements such as, but not limited to, flash, custom programming, functionality, etc, may require that a specifications summary be presented to the Client.

Once work has begun on enhancements purchased by the client there is No Refund if cancelled. Enhancements or additional services purchased after the initial sale are separate purchases and are in addition to and separate from the original sale. If a client cancels an enhancement the original sale is not cancelled.

 

16. Expedited Services

While Ram Web Consulting does not guarantee a time frame for the completion of any custom website, it may offer an optional expedited service to Client for a fee. Expedited service is not available for all accounts and all requests for expedited service must be approved by Ram Web Consulting at its sole discretion. Client understands and agrees that Client’s use of expedited service does not guarantee that Client’s website including its corresponding design, enhancements, databases, e-commerce stores, flash, etc, will be completed more quickly than they would be without the use of the expedited service. The expedited service fee only ensures that Ram Web Consulting will make reasonable efforts to more quickly assign designers and programmers to the account in an effort to facilitate development than would be the case under the ordinary developmental process.

 

The successful use of expedited service is contingent upon Client’s timely acceptance of the Terms of Service, payment of any and all fees due, email submission of content, acceptance of any project specification documents prepared by RAM and Client’s timely cooperation with Ram Web Consulting in any solicitation for information related to the website’s development.

 

If expedited service is offered to Client by Ram Web Consulting, Client may be presented with an estimated date of completion. Client understands and agrees that such estimated dates of completion are estimates only and may apply only to one particular element of the website, i.e. database, flash, e-commerce, design, and not necessarily to multiple elements of the website or to the website collectively. Under no circumstances will Ram Web Consulting guarantee the respective portion or portions of the website subject to the estimated date of completion to be completed sooner than the estimated date of completion. Should circumstances arise that make it impossible to complete the portion or portions of the website that are subject to the estimated date of completion by the estimated date of completion, including but not limited to Client failure to provide Ram Web COnsulting with requested information in a timely manner, Ram Web Consulting reserves the right to change the estimated date of completion accordingly or to cancel the expedited services and refund a portion of the expedited service fee to Client. In no case shall the portion of the expedited service fee to be refunded be greater than fifty percent (50%) of the expedited service fee.
