Web Design

Permissions: The client agrees to give access (usernames, passwords, and any other required permissions) to existing or future domain registration, hosting accounts, and affiliated service-providers as needed to accomplish the goals set forth in the written proposal.

Proposal: For any website project, a proposal shall be provided to the client which outlines the general scope of the web design project. Additionally, the proposal shall include an estimate of the costs involved to complete the project. Additional work required to the project will incur additional costs. All prices specified in this contract will be honored for three (3) months after both parties agree to this contract. Continued services after that time will require a new agreement.

Client will provide all text to be used in web pages, unless otherwise negotiated. Client agrees to provide copy and any other submissions in a timely manner.

Web Browsers: Beegus Media makes every effort to ensure websites are designed to be viewed by the majority of visitors. Websites are designed to work with the most popular current browsers (e.g. Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge etc.). The client agrees that Beegus Media cannot guarantee correct functionality with all browser software across different operating systems.

Beegus Media cannot accept responsibility for web pages which do not display acceptably in new versions of browsers released after the website has been designed and handed over to the client. As such, Beegus Media 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.

Third Party Servers: Beegus Media designs and tests websites to work on its own servers and cannot guarantee correct functionality if the client wishes to use a third-party server. In the event that the client is using a third-party server, it is the responsibility of the client and any third-party host to ensure that the server is compatible with the website. Beegus Media will assist the client to configure the server if this is required. However, this may be subject to additional charges.

If the client’s website is to be installed on a third-party server, Beegus Media must be granted temporary read/write access to the client’s storage directories which must be accessible via FTP. Depending on the specific nature of the project, other resources may also need to be configured on the server.

Completion Date: All project due dates are tentative. Matters of client involvement during revision phases, etc. make it impossible to guarantee delivery by deadlines, though Beegus Media will do everything we can to ensure those deadlines are met.

Delays: Illness, injury, or other events beyond Beegus Media’s control, such as: fire, theft, computer failure, and Acts of God may result in a delay of unpredictable length.

Post-Placement Alterations: Beegus Media cannot accept responsibility for any alterations caused by the client or a third party occurring to the website once installed. Such alterations include, but are not limited to additions, modifications or deletions.

Payment: A 50% deposit is required before any work begins and the remaining payment when the final website is approved but before it is delivered. Returned checks will result in a return-check fee of $30.00. The client understands that the final website design belongs to Beegus Media until all invoices are paid in full.

Beegus Media reserves the right to display the website for business promotional use.

Delinquency: Beegus Media reserves the right to remove web pages from viewing on the Internet until final payment is made. If case collection proves necessary, the client agrees to pay all fees incurred in that process.

Performance Liability: Beegus Media does not warrant that the functions supplied by web pages, consultation or advice, will be uninterrupted or error-free. The entire risk as to the quality and performance of the web pages and website is with the client. In no event will Beegus Media be liable to the client or any third party for any damages, including any lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages arising out of the operation of or inability to operate these web pages or website, even if Beegus Media has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

Copyrights and Trademarks: The client represents to Beegus Media and unconditionally guarantees that any elements of text, graphics, photos, designs, trademarks, or other artwork furnished to Beegus Media for inclusion in web pages are owned by the client, or that the client has permission from the rightful owner to use each of these elements, and will hold harmless, protect, and defend Beegus Media from any claim or suit arising from the use of such elements furnished by the client.

NOTE: Before you confirm your agreement to these terms, please make sure you understand all of the above agreement. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding these terms, please contact us before advising us of acceptance.

Indemnity: All Beegus Media services may be used for lawful purposes only. The client agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Beegus Media against all damages, losses and expenses arising as a result of any and all actions or claims resulting from the Client’s use of Beegus Media’s service.

Design Credit & Marketing: A link to Beegus Media will appear in either small type or by a small graphic at the bottom of the client’s website. If a graphic is used, it will be designed to fit in with the overall site design. If a client requests that the design credit be removed, a nominal fee of 10% of the total development charges will be applied. When total development charges are less than $5,000, a fixed fee of $125 will be applied.

The client agrees that the design work developed for the client may be presented in Beegus Media’s portfolio, and hereby grants Beegus Media a worldwide, perpetual, non-exclusive license to use its name, logo and branding for advertising, marketing and promotional activities.

Rights of Refusal: Beegus Media will not include in its designs, any text, images or other data which it deems to be immoral, offensive, obscene or illegal. All advertising material must conform to all standards laid down by all relevant advertising standards authorities. Beegus Media also reserves the right to refuse to include submitted material without giving reason. In the situation where any images and/or data that Beegus Media does include in all good faith, and subsequently discovers is in contravention to such Terms and Conditions, the customer is obliged to allow Beegus Media to remove the contravention without hindrance, or penalty. Beegus Media is to be held in no way responsible for any such data being included.

SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

Fees: All fees are non-refundable.

Confidentiality: All fees, services, documents, recommendations, and reports are confidential.

Search Engine Policies: Beegus Media has no control over the policies of search engines with respect to the type of sites and/or content that they accept now or in the future. The client’s website may be excluded from any directory or search engine at any time at the sole discretion of the search engine or directory.

Performance Liability: Due to the competitiveness of some keywords/phrases, ongoing changes in search engine ranking algorithms, and other competitive factors, Beegus Media does not guarantee #1 positions or consistent top 10 positions for any particular keyword, phrase, or search term.

Limitations: Beegus Media is not responsible for changes made to the website by other parties that adversely affect the search engine rankings of the client’s website.

Linking to “bad neighborhoods” or getting links from “link farms” can seriously damage all SEO efforts.  

Beegus Media is not responsible for the client overwriting SEO work to the client’s site. (e.g., client/webmaster uploading over work already provided/optimized). The client will be charged an additional fee for re-constructing content, based on the hourly rate of $150 per hour. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, Beegus Media’s obligation to provide free SEO services shall cease in the event the client’s conduct overwrites the SEO services provided. For example, if the client’s webmaster uploads content, then Beegus Media’s obligation to provide SEO services for free shall terminate.

Dropped Listings: Occasionally search engines will drop listings for no apparent or predictable reason. Often the listing will reappear without any additional SEO. Should a listing be dropped during the SEO campaign and does not reappear within 30 days of campaign completion, Beegus Media will re-optimize the website/page based on the current policies of the search engine in question.

Expedited Listing Services: Some search directories offer expedited listing services for a fee. If the client wishes to engage in said expedited listing services (e.g., paid directories), the client is responsible for all paid for inclusion or expedited service fees.

Content Production

Rights: The client(s) allows Beegus Media to display any video, sound, or image covered by this contract for promotional and demonstration purposes, including advertising, websites, social media, printed media, etc.

Ownership: You, the client, have ownership of the final completed content for use in any media application that is beneficial to your business. Beegus Media retains the right to use the final content, or any versions of the content created in the process, within printed and on-line portfolios, including promotional materials such as newsletters and advertisements subject to payment in full. All original recordings, photographs and edited computer files will remain the property of Beegus Media. Beegus Media will not be solely responsible for the storage and maintenance of the original and edited media, including video and sound recordings, photographic, and digital files.

Original raw footage (non-edited material) is the sole ownership of Beegus Media and is not intended for client viewing and is not part of the supplied finished package (see Force Majeure below), though it may be distributed at the sole discretion of Beegus Media or used in future projects for the client. Original material might be offered to the customer if Beegus Media is unable to produce the edited program. All material will be kept for at least one year from the date of the shoot.

Coverage & Reproductions: Video or pictures taken during the course of the event will be at the discretion of Beegus Media, although every effort will be made to comply with the client’s requirements.

It is the sole responsibility of the client to secure permission of the venue to set up video or photography equipment and record with or without flash.

Beegus Media will abide by all rules of the facility and/or directions of the staff/facility coordinator with regard to video or photography set-up and will not be held responsible for absence of certain shots due to such rules and/or directions, or due to interference by other vendors, including the photographer.

The client acknowledges that video and photography require reasonable lighting and controllable audio environments, and that production may be compromised if either of these cannot be achieved.

Although Beegus Media will endeavor to fulfill the requirements of the agreed package, sometimes this may not be possible due to reasons explained within these Terms and Conditions.

Editing & Post Productions: Whilst every effort will be made by Beegus Media to supply the client with a satisfactory product based upon Beegus Media’s advertised style, and to the specified requirements agreed beforehand, all editing and post production will be carried out to Beegus Media’s discretion.

Force Majeure (Beyond Beegus Media’s Control): In the event of Beegus Media being unable to attend the filming date due to illness, injury, etc. he/she will endeavor to provide or recommend the client with a suitable replacement videographer/photographer/editor.

Beegus Media shall not be liable in the event of bad weather or unforeseen circumstances, including illness, from preventing us from completing the work.

In the event of equipment failure beyond Beegus Media’s control, including theft of equipment or material, Beegus Media is not liable for refund or compensation, but will try to appease the client using any available recorded material. In the unlikely event of a total video or pictures failure, liability shall be limited to a refund of monies paid other than the deposits.

Beegus Media reserves the right to cease filming or editing if situations arise that are unfit to continue, eg. grounds of safety, mistreatment, offensive or abusive behaviour, content that Beegus Media at its sole discretion deems immoral, offensive, obscene or illegal, or unacceptable working conditions. In these instances, Beegus Media is not liability for refund or compensation.

Cancellation: Deposits are non-refundable unless cancellation is done by Beegus Media. If cancellation is done by the client, any money paid other than deposits shall be returned. However, if the client cancels within one month prior to the event, Beegus Media is entitled to invoice the client for loss of earnings and/or any travel expenses an otherwise suitable solution is agreed upon.

Liability & Refund: The client’s payments cover/pays for labor and presentation media in the production of the agreed video or pictures. Every effort will be taken by Beegus Media to provide the client with agreed product, and dissatisfaction of its contents, although regrettable, will be deemed subjective and is therefore not open for interpretation by the client as grounds for refunds or compensation, for which Beegus Media is not liable.

Accidents & Damage: Beegus Media cannot be held responsible for any personal injury/accident or damage during a video or photography shoot. The client is free to take out their own insurance policy on the shoot if they deem necessary.

Revisions: After taking collection of the agreed video or pictures, any requests for alterations will be undertaken free of charge and at the discretion of Beegus Media (eg.

Each additional revision will be billed at the rate of $150 an hour.

Unlimited Packages

Unlimited Packages: All unlimited packages allow for unlimited requests. Each request will be executed one at a time in order unless otherwise specified. 

Turnaround Time: Each project request will take approximately 2-4 business days for initial project delivery. The total turnaround time will depend upon the number of revisions and response time of the client. 

Payments: Payments are due in advance. Work commences once payment is made. Payments are due on the same day as the initial payment each consecutive month of the subscription. A pause in payments will result in a pause of work. 

Subscription Terms & Cancellation: The Silver Unlimited Web Design Package and the Unlimited Web Design portion of the Platinum Package requires a one year minimum subscription.

The Gold Unlimited Graphic Design Package and the Unlimited Graphic Design portion of the Platinum Package can be cancelled at any time. This does not result in a refund of any kind.
