Quotes provided to prospects will be honored for 30 days. A new quote will then be provided upon request. Contracts that have been written, but not signed by the client will only be accepted within 30 days of the delivery date. A new contract may be drawn up upon request.

Charges & Fees
All projects require an initial 50% deposit that will be due before any work is started. The remaining 50% balance will be due upon acceptance of the completed web development project before it is released to the client or published to the Internet.

All new web design projects that exceed $700 US will be split into three payments. An initial deposit of 1/3 of the total project cost will be due at contract signing. A second payment of 1/3 the total project cost will be due upon acceptance of the design. The final balance will be due upon acceptance of the completed web development project before it is released to the client or published to the Internet.

Payments
Superior Interactive accepts payments via cash, PayPal, or personal check. Your project will not be released to you or uploaded to client’s hosting account until full payment is received.

Payments via check which are declined are subject to the $25.00 NSF fee PLUS any bank charges which Superior Interactive incurs. Service will be interrupted/stopped on accounts that reach 10 days past due. Service interrupted for non-payment is subject to a $15 late fee which is payable before service will be restored.

Web Work
Any web work created by Superior Interactive will be posted on our hosting account until final payment is received. You will be able to see your work by typing for example http://www.flint-webdesign.com/yoursite/index.html. We would like for your site to be complete before it is uploaded and live for everyone to see. We don’t post incomplete work on client’s web address. We will create a simple “coming soon page” with the name of your web site and contact information for free while the site is being created.

Web Site Design Credit
All Superior Interactive custom web design clients will have a “Design by: Superior Interactive” link on their website in the footer of every page. This is non-negotiable. By hiring us to work on your website you are agreeing to this, and that you understand that this link may NOT be removed without our consent. You may pay Superior Interactive a fee of $150 to have this link permanently removed. Should you have a new layout designed for your site by a company other than Superior Interactive, you may remove the credit from your website.

Responsibility for Content
You, as Superior Interactive customer, are solely responsible for the content stored on your web site. If content on your page is plagiarized or is someone else’s you, the client, are responsible.

Copyright & Ownership
Superior Interactive reserves the right to resell custom designed web sites that remain unpaid by the original client, unaccepted mockups or other graphics created by Superior Interactive but not in legal use by the client.

Superior Interactive reserves the right to display web sites and graphics that have been designed by Superior Interactive on its website, and in any marketing material to aid as examples of our work.

Client cannot claim intellectual property rights or exclusive ownership our web designs. At best, the web design created for the client is a joint effort between Superior Interactive and the client. In no event can client copy files and give to another person for reuse or loading into another hosting plan without permission from Superior Interactive. Client fully owns images, text and etc. that they provide in order to create the Web site.

Refunds
A request to terminate services must be presented to Superior Interactive in writing. Superior Interactive has a Guaranteed 30 Day Turnaround for your project. If we fail to complete your project within 30 days of the start date (date of signed contract) AND you have turned in all content, images and information requested by us, you will receive a full refund within 30 days of your written request. Otherwise, please follow the refund terms below.  Refunds for domain names and hosting are non refundable due that they are purchased through a third party entity.

Refund Amounts will be calculated in the following ways:

  1. A cancellation fee of 20% (twenty percent) of the total deposit paid will be retained for projects that have been booked, but cancelled prior to the start date.

  2. A cancellation fee of 30% (thirty percent) of the total deposit paid will be retained for projects that have been started and are in the design process.

Refunds will be processed within 30 business days of request by the client.

Because we resell hosting for a larger company, we are unable to offer refunds on hosting, SSL and domain services. If you are dissatisfied with the hosting services provided, we will be happy to work out a solution with you that will meet your company needs.

Development & Delivery
Superior Interactive understands the importance of completing projects in a timely manner. We agree to complete the web design project within 30 days from the date of contract signing. Most sites can be created within 1 – 15 business days. If the client does not supply Superior Interactive with complete text, graphic content and other requested materials for the contracted client within 30 days of contract signing, the contract becomes void and all deposits paid by the client are forfeited and all work stops.

Restart of work will be considered a new project and new fees will be required.

It is expected that the client will provide crucial or major elements of the web site at the time of contract signing. It is unreasonable for client to expect the 30 day agreement to applicable if crucial or major elements needed for web site completion are submitted late as in a few days before the expected completion date.

The client may request a Project Extension in writing to Superior Interactive for an additional fee of 10% of the project total cost for every 30 days of extension. All extension fees are due upon agreement of the extension between Superior Interactive and the client.

Non-Communication
If we are unable to communicate with a client on a project for a duration of at least 14 days (14) by phone or email during the design and development process, the project will be canceled without prior notice and no refund will be issued.

E-Commerce Earnings
Superior Interactive does not guarantee that an E-Commerce site will make money. Although, a well thought out and well developed web site may assist a client in generating sales, the quality of product(s), price of product, ample web traffic, strong sales letter and other factor help determine if client makes money.

International Customers
Superior Interactive happily accepts projects from customers outside of the United States. However, we do require full payment of all projects prior to beginning your project via Credit Card. This is non-negotiable.

Project Consideration
Please note that Superior Interactive is a family owned and operated company. Therefore, we will not accept projects that we find morally questionable, unethical, or distasteful.
