TERMS AND CONDITIONS
All fees and expenses are “fixed bid.” There is no extra charge for minor changes made during the project (unlimited revisions.) We work until the job is done or 90-days from deposit. If a project goes beyond 90 days, the project fees will be renegotiated.
Payment is made via mail with check or money order. A 50% deposit is required before we start. The balance 10 days after approval. Make your deposit check payable to: Steve Teare, Address: Studio Office, 100 East Bluff Street, Palouse, Washington 99161. PayPal payments can be arranged in advance.
There are no setup charges. The web engineering fees include free site revisions / maintenance for 30 days after launch. We do not coach about hooking up email. Tutorials about email are available online.
4. ANNUAL MAINTENANCE (if any)
After the 30-day warranty period, you’ll be billed $25 per maintenance event. No other charges are incurred unless you want new construction. Maintenance events encourage batch processing of changes. Example: If you do maintenance twice a year, add $25 x 2 events = $50 to the annual minimum fee. Payment for services fees are NET Christmas (once annually in arrears).
A 50% deposit is due in advance. Final payment is due NET 10 days after project approval.
6. WEB ENGINEERING CREDIT
We reserve the option to place a small credit link in your site footer saying “Site by PagePipe.” We may link to your site for advertising purposes (demonstration). We may use a screen capture of your pages in our online portfolio.
Each revision is reviewed by you or your designated agent for changes, revisions, and approvals.
We may acquire certain confidential information regarding your present and contemplated activities. We will not divulge or disclose such confidential information to others.

10. LIMITED LIABILITY
Our liability for any loss or damage in connection with a project from any cause, including our negligence, shall not exceed the total fee paid.

13. SATISFACTION GUARANTEE
You’re The Boss. You’ll review changes or revisions. We will continue to revise the project until you’re satisfied. Should the 90-day project work period expire, fees must be renegotiated. Production delays are discouraged. Web engineering is a time-limited process. If you desire to discontinue the web project, for any reason, you must pay 30 percent of the original estimate as a project kill fee.
