we have adopted to better serve you.

Upon agreement, you, the client, are engaging
UffDa Creative, LLC - DBA (doing business as) JW Designs - a registered LLC in the state of South Carolina, PO Box 50303, Myrtle Beach SC, 29579,
as an independent contractor for the specific project of developing and/or improving a World Wide website to be installed on the
client's web space on a web hosting service's computer. Upon agreement, you, the client hereby authorize JW Designs, LLC to access your account,
and authorize the web hosting service to provide JW Designs, LLC with "write permission" for the client's webpage directory,
cgi-bin directory, and any other directories or programs which need to be accessed for this project. The client also authorizes
JW Designs, LLC to publicize their completed website to Web search engines, as well as other Web directories and indexes.
Fees to JW Designs, LLC are due and payable on the following schedule: If the total proposal
amount exceeds $800, 50% upon agreeing to the proposal, 50% when the webpages have been constructed according to the
client's original written specifications or 60 days, whichever comes first. (see "unresponsiveness" clause below) If the total amount of the proposal is less than $800, the total amount shall
be paid upon agreeing to the proposal. In case the client has not secured Web space on a web hosting service by the time the
webpages are completed, the webpages may be delivered to the client on diskette or attached to an e-mail message.
Advertising the pages to Web search engines and updating occur only after the final payment is made. All payments will be made in US funds.
"Unresponsiveness" from a client:
If an agreement of 50% upon agreeing to the proposal, 50% upon website completion is made and the content for the website is not provided within 60 days, the balance of the proposal becomes due. "Website completion" is when the site is developed, not when the content is ready, which means the balance will be due when we've done our part.
Proposals are good for 7 business days from the date of proposal. The proposed amount is not guaranteed after the 7 day period has lapsed and may
require a new proposal.
In order for JW Designs, LLC to remain in business, payments must be made promptly.
Delinquent bills will be assessed a $15 charge if payment is not received within 7 days of the Invoice notice.
If an amount remains delinquent 30 days after its due date, an additional 5% penalty will be added for each month
of delinquency and JW Designs, LLC reserves the right to remove webpages from viewing on the Internet until final
payment is made. A re-connection fee of $50 will be assessed.
In case collection proves necessary, the client agrees to pay all fees incurred by that process.
If there is some reason payment cannot be made in a timely manner the client should contact JW Designs, LLC before the due date via email:
firstname.lastname@example.org or contact our billing department at (843) 655-5500. We are very reasonable and a sufficient explanation will be taken on good faith
and your payments will be adjusted accordingly.
From time to time governments enact laws and levy taxes and tariffs affecting Internet
electronic commerce. The client agrees that the client is solely responsible for complying with such laws, taxes, and tariffs,
and will hold harmless, protect, and defend JW Designs, LLC and its subcontractors from any claim, suit, penalty, tax,
or tariff arising from the client's exercise of Internet electronic commerce.
The client represents to JW Designs, LLC and unconditionally guarantees that any elements of
text, graphics, photos, designs, trademarks, or other artwork furnished to JW Designs, LLC for
inclusion in webpages 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 JW Designs, LLC and
its subcontractors from any claim or suit arising from the use of such elements furnished by the client.
All new client projects come with a specified amount of free support. Beyond this, all JW Designs, LLC
staff time spent on client accounts is billable.
Additional education and consultation beyond the scope of the proposal is charged at an hourly rate.
Defects in workmanship will always be addressed and fixed free of charge.
Although it is the goal of every web developer to obtain coveted search engine rankings for their customers,
JW Designs, LLC cannot guarantee the results of any coding or techniques aimed at improving search engine rankings.
Furthermore, any good rankings that exist before a redesign, or that are attained through SEO efforts are not guaranteed
to remain for any length of time. Even for a web site that remains unchanged, search engine rankings can shift any time at
the whim of the search engine companies.
If the client changes his/her mind about doing work with JW Designs, LLC during the course of the initial
web design or development phase, the client will be responsible for the amount of work already completed.
Depending on the amount of work completed at the time of cancellation, this may mean receiving a full
refund, a partial refund, no refund, or owing additional fees.
If items (e.g, domain name registration, website hosting, logo design, social media pages, etc.) are provided free of charge on the initial invoice the client will be responsible for the work completed or the items purchased,
registered, etc., and such will be deducted from the refund amount. These items are initially offered at a discounted rate, or free of charge,
as a "package deal". When that "package deal" is interrupted, such is the case during a refund, the client is responsible for the retail amount of those items or the work completed.
In order to protect clients from unintentional service interruption, clients wishing to terminate any services
must request the service termination in writing, mailed to: PO Box 50303, Myrtle Beach, SC 29579
JW Designs, LLC does not sell, duplicate or refer your e-mail address, phone number or any other information
to any other company for any reason, unless requested by you.
JW Designs, LLC reserves the right to decline to do business with any client for any reason.
JW Designs, LLC does not service the adult entertainment industry, and as such,
will decline to bid on any site
