or alterations to your order:
Printing Templates (Mugs):
Please note that artwork colours displayed on our website will be dependent on your own monitor display settings and may not be an accurate representation of the printed colours.
Our aim is to create low cost, high quality websites to our clients' specifications.
We will discuss the design with the client and produce a draft design uploaded to our 'test' website, for the client's approval and comments. If the client is satisfied with the design we will produce finished pages. If changes to the design are required we will carry out the alterations and produce a revised draft. We will produce a total of two designs for no additional charge. It is in the interest of our clients to be as specific as possible about their requirements and expectations for the site to avoid wasting time on unwanted designs.
We will quote for the client's requested website in advance where possible. However, additions to the website during design may incur extra charges. Please see our Price Guide for details.
Prices are quoted based on our standard rate and the amount of work involved.
We reserve the right to refuse to design or host any site we believe to have illegal or offensive content.
Clients should ensure they own any material used on their website, or have permission or an appropriate licence to use the material.
Our sites are hosted in the UK. All sites are backed up weekly on the server and are backed up on disk after any updates.
We will notify our clients if we are expecting any maintenance work or network outage which would affect website access.
Hosting is charged for a minimum period of one year.
We are only able to supply technical support for websites which are designed and hosted by AlgolOnline.
We do not currently provide training or support for clients who wish to service their own websites. If a client wishes to update their site themselves they must do so on their own responsibility. In the event of problems arising from a client's own updates, we will be able to restore our last backup, but may not be able to restore the client's recent updates.
Please note we are not an Internet Service Provider and are not in any way responsible for a client's internet connection, including the client's ability to access their website or email.
UPDATES & MAINTENANCE:
Our yearly hosting charge includes minor website updates, eg. changes to general text, information on booking conditions, prices, availability etc.. More complex updates, eg. redesigns, addition of new images, may incur an extra charge which will be quoted as required. New pages will be charged at the rate shown on our Price Guide.
When requesting an update please bear in mind that we may not be able to update your site immediately but we will book the work into our next available slot. If you have a deadline for the updates please ensure that you give us the new material at least one week in advance.
All websites are regularly checked to ensure the site is functioning properly.
DOMAIN NAMES AND EMAIL:
Websites which are hosted with us include a free .co.uk domain name of the client's choice (subject to availability) and up to five email addresses at the domain. Domain names are free for the first two years and then renewable for each following two year period at the prices listed in our Price Guide. Other domain extensions may carry an extra charge.
Email can be set up as webmail, accessible from any computer, or set up by the client using the client's own software. In the event of a fault with a client's domain-based email or webmail we will correct this as soon as possible. Please note that if the fault does not lie with our mailserver then it is not a part of our responsibility and the client will need to investigate any problem themselves.
Algol Online is not responsible for any unsolicited email received by the client. We do not supply a client's email address to any third party without the client's consent.
SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION AND SUBMISSIONS:
All sites are automatically submitted to the major search engines and can also be submitted for listing in appropriate directories if required. We cannot guarantee that a website will be listed or will receive a high placement from any search engine or directory.
Pricing details are shown on our website Price Guide for web design and hosting and individual product pages for printed items. Prices may be subject to change.
A deposit is required before any work will be carried out on the website or any domain names purchased on the customer's behalf. (This deposit is non-returnable if a domain name has been purchased or any work has been carried out on the customer's behalf). The remainder is payable once the website is completed to the customer's satisfaction. Website invoices and hosting account renewal charges are due within 28 days of an invoice being issued. Invoices which remain unpaid within 7 days of a reminder notice being sent by email may result in the removal of the website and suspension of services until payment is received. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that payment reaches us in a timely manner. Interest and late payment fees as laid down under UK law may be charged on unpaid invoices.
HOURS OF BUSINESS AND CONTACTING US:
Our normal hours of business are from 9am to 6pm Monday to Friday. We can be contacted outside these times if necessary by email. Email messages are checked regularly during the day and in the evening. Please see our Contact Page for details of how to contact us.
We normally respond to all queries within 24 hours. We will respond to any messages left by email as soon as possible. We can be contacted by mobile phone to report faults on customers' websites - please note in the case of an issue with our server we may not be able to receive emails.
We prefer to be contacted by email as this causes less interruption to our printing and design work. You can contact us by phone if you prefer, but please be aware that we are very busy dealing with website and print orders and may not be able to take your call.
PRIVACY & SECURITY:
All online payments are made using the PayPal secure payment system. AlgolOnline is not in possession of your credit card details at any time.
Your email and address details are only used in the processing and delivery of your order. We do not pass these details onto anyone else.
Spam policy - AlgolOnline does not send unsolicited emails. If you receive any such email which appears to originate with us please copy the message (including headers) into our enquiry form and send it to us and we will report this to the sender's email provider.
AlgolOnline does not accept any liability for indirect or consequential loss arising from the use of this website or for any products or services purchased from this website.
OUR WEBSITE COPYRIGHTS:
And finally... please don't steal our copy! There are at least 5 (and rising!) web design sites out there who have used our original introductory text and product descriptions almost (and now in more than one case exactly) word for word. Of course we're flattered that you think we write so well, but we're sure you can manage to write your own copy with just a little effort. Please remember that the textual content of this website legally belongs to AlgolOnline and copying or reproducing any part of this website is prohibited by law. Thank you.
