When such algorithm changes occur this can have a knock-on effect on the timescales and deadlines of work that is being carried out due to entire strategies having to be readjusted and deployed based on research into the behaviour of the newest algorithms.

WEB DEALS OFFER TERMS & CONDITIONS
When you select a package you are entitled to everything listed within that package.
If you add additional elements to the design the cost will be calculated per item.
The bespoke, well written content will be created in-house. Any other content for the site must be provided or you can have us create it for a fee based on the amount you need.
The automated backups will be kept so that the site can be restored if anything happens to it. We suggest every client make their own backups too so they have a copy.
The 12 months secure hosting is included with the provision that you remain with us for 24 months. The first year will be free of charge but the second will incur an annual fee. If you choose to leave before the end of the second year there is a £300 + VAT moving fee.
With email, online and telephone support we will inspect the site for you. If there is a large problem and it takes longer than a few minutes to find we will charge a fee based on the time.
The provision of support does not include fixing an issue. There will be a fee for this based on the extent of the issue and how much time it will take to fix.
Websites will be optimised but performance on search engines will not be guaranteed.
The WordPress tutorial will be 30 minutes long for standard websites and 45 minutes for Woocommerce. If you want a longer session additional time can be provided for a fee.
When purchasing a website we will take a 50% deposit to cover set up, getting the project into the work queue, and starting the work. The remaining balance will then be required upon completion of the website. We will make every effort to contact the client as the website is nearing completion and once the work is concluded. If no feedback is received two months after the completion date we will assume the client is happy with the work and will proceed to issue a bill for the balance due. Once this is paid the files will be sent and the project concluded, including making any reasonable changes that are required.
Over the course of a project we will do our utmost to keep in contact with clients to gather everything we need to complete the website, whether it is pictures, content, or products. We will wait for a period of up to three months to give each client time to provide all of these details. If they are not received once this period elapses we will issue a bill for the remaining balance on the website.
Customers are required to submit products themselves to Woocommerce. We can do this for you for a fee based on the number of different products that need to be uploaded.
Our goal is to finish each project in a timely manner. However, there may be some cases where we are unable to do this because of holidays or the customer failing to provide information or wanting to delay. If a project is delayed for three months we will save a copy of the site files and remove the website from our server. We will only reupload it to the server once the customer contacts us to restart the project.
If a customer wants to delay the project but would like to keep the website on our server, we will charge a holding fee. This will cover our administration costs.
