By placing an order with MadeInPluto, you confirm that you are in agreement with and bound by the terms and conditions below.
The Client: The company or individual requesting the services of MadeInPluto.
MadeInPluto will carry out work only where an agreement is provided either by email, telephone, mail or fax. MadeInPluto will carry out work only for clients who are 18 years of age or above. An 'order' is deemed to be a written or verbal contract between MadeInPluto and the client, this includes telephone and email agreements.
Whilst every endeavor will be made to ensure that the website and any scripts or programs are free of errors, MadeInPluto cannot accept responsibility for any losses incurred due to malfunction, the website or any part of it. The website, graphics and any programming code remain the property of MadeInPluto until all outstanding accounts are paid in full. Any scripts, cgi applications, php scripts, or software (unless specifically agreed) written by MadeInPluto remain the copyright of MadeInPluto and may only be commercially reproduced or resold with the permission of MadeInPluto. MadeInPluto cannot take responsibility for any copyright infringements caused by materials submitted by the client. We reserve the right to refuse any material of a copyrighted nature unless adequate proof is given of permission to use such material. Any additions to the brief will be carried out at the discretion of MadeInPluto and where no charge is made by MadeInPluto for such additions, MadeInPluto accept no responsibility to ensure such additions are error free and reserve the right to charge an according amount for any correction to these or further additions. The client agrees to make available as soon as is reasonably possible to MadeInPluto all materials required to complete the site to the agreed standard and within the set deadline. MadeInPluto will not be liable for costs incurred, compensation or loss of earnings due to the failure to meet agreed deadlines. MadeInPluto will not be liable or become involved in any disputes between the site owner and their clients and cannot be held responsible for any wrongdoing on the part of a site owner. MadeInPluto will not be liable for any costs incurred, compensation or loss of earnings due to the work carried out on behalf of the client or any of the clients appointed agents. MadeInPluto will not be liable for any costs incurred, compensation or loss of earnings due to the unavailability of the site, its servers, software or any material provided by its agents. A deposit of 30% is required with any project before any design work will be carried out. Once a website has been designed and completed the final balance of payment is then due in accordance with our payment terms. There are no exceptions to this, i.e If the client decides they no longer want the site, as they have commissioned the work and paid a deposit they are still obliged to pay for the work that has been done. Non payment will result in legal action being taken if necessary.
Database, Application and E-Commerce Development
MadeInPluto cannot take responsibility for any losses incurred by the use of any software created for the client. Whilst every care has been taken to ensure products are problem free and accurate, the ultimate responsibility lies with the client in ensuring that all software is functioning correctly before use. Any scripts, cgi applications or software (unless specifically agreed) written by MadeInPluto remain the copyright of MadeInPluto and may only be commercially reproduced or resold with the permission of MadeInPluto. Where applications or sites are developed on servers not recommended by MadeInPluto, the client is expected to provide or seek any information,additional software,support or co-operation pertaining to the server required in order for the application to be correctly developed. Where large applications are to be developed, it is the clients responsibility to provide a suitable testing environment which is identical to the final production environment. The client is expected to test fully any application or programming relating to a site developed by MadeInPluto before being made generally available for use. Where 'bugs', errors or other issues are found after the site is live, MadeInPluto will endeavor (but is not obliged to) to correct these issues to meet the standards of function outlined in the brief.
Payment of Accounts
A deposit is required from any new client before any work is carried out. It is the MadeInPluto policy that any outstanding accounts for work carried out by MadeInPluto or its affiliates are required to be paid in full, no later than 14 days from the date of the invoice unless by prior arrangement with MadeInPluto. Once a deposit is paid and work completed you are obliged to pay the balance of payment in full. We will contact clients via email and telephone to remind them of such payments if they are not received when due. If accounts are not settled or MadeInPluto have not been contacted regarding the delay, access to the related website may be denied and web pages removed, we will then pass such cases to our legal department and eventually also to the Small Claims Court to pursue payment; non payment can result in county court judgements (ccj's) being added to the clients credit rating. Following consistent non payment of an invoice our Solicitors will contact the client in question, with a view to taking the matter further and if need be to seek payment through legal procedures, and if necessary court summons.
Ready-to-go Scripts Licensing
All our ready-to-go scripts (ie. Styx, Charon and any other scripts listed under the scripts menu available for purchase) remain our property and we retain full ownership rights and all intellectual property rights. You specifically agree not to do anything that may in any way infringe upon or undermine our rights, title, or interest in our products and scripts. This includes, but is not limited to, any sale, transfer or gift of the whole or of any part of any item, data or anything whatsoever that we own. Each ready-to-go script come with one individual website license and therefore can be used only on one website at a time. Should you need to use a same script on different websites (even if on the same server), you need to purchase the correct number of licenses accordingly.
Passing of Rights
Once all amounts due to us from you are paid and cleared you are assigned the rights to use, as applicable, the products and services, including any text, graphics, animation, audio components and digital components contained within the finished project, in accordance with these terms and conditions, the Project Agreement and any applicable agreement, terms or licence but no rights of ownership are conveyed unless specifically stated in the Project Contract. No such rights as described in above will pass until all amounts due to us from you are paid. This means that we will have a lien over any service, products, data or information. If you have not paid the invoice in full within 30 days from the date of the invoice you agree that you will forfeit your rights. The rights to photographs, graphics and any third party items such as source code, always remain the property of their respective owners. Unless you have our specific written agreement in the Project Contract, all products, including Content Management Systems, interfaces, navigational devices, menus, menu structures or arrangements, icons, help, all operational instructions, scripts, cgi applications, software, programming/source code, and all other components of any source or object computer code that comprises the Website, all literal and non-literal expressions of ideas that operate, cause, create, direct, manipulate, access, or otherwise affect the Content and design elements used or developed and all software, and our products and results of our services remain our property and we retain full ownership rights and all intellectual property rights.
