Images requested from Stock providers are acceptable but will be chargeable at the rates shown plus currency conversion and card payment charges.
Dreamcloud Solutions will endeavour to ensure that any web site supplied by us will function correctly on the web server the site is initially installed upon. All websites are developed to work primarily across all major browsers and platforms including other devices such as mobile phones and tablets. However, Dreamcloud Solutions cannot guarantee complete and/or long term compatibility across every major browser, platform or handheld device due to updates/upgrades by their respective vendors. Dreamcloud Solutions will not guarantee compatibility in old or redundant browsers.
4. Payment of Accounts
4.1 A minimum deposit of 25% of the quoted value of design work will be required (unless otherwise agreed) from the client before any work is carried out. Subsequent payments will be made in accordance with the payment schedule outlined by Dreamcloud Solutions. The outstanding balance must be paid in full with cleared payment before the site is passed to the client, the new site will then be transferred from our test servers to the live URL or as otherwise instructed by the client. If the Client decides they no longer want the site, as they have commissioned the work and paid a deposit they are still obliged to pay for the work that has been done. Dreamcloud Solutions reserve the right to invoice for work completed should there be a gap exceeding 2 months from the last payment.
4.2 Non payment will result in legal action being taken if necessary. Late payment will be charged at 8% on top of the Bank of England’s current base rate of the total cost of the outstanding invoice. This amount will be added on to the payment for every day the payment is not received. Once full payment is received for a website, it is assumed that the project has been completed to the clients satisfaction and no refunds can be offered.
