AU Digital will carry out work only where an agreement is provided either by email, mail or fax, and payment has been received. An ‘order’ is deemed to be a written or verbal contract between AU Digital and the client; this includes email agreements.
All AU Digital quoting is based on an ongoing per month fixed cost, unless agreed otherwise. Inclusions and pricing for the Website Support Package are outlined in the package agreement provided during sign up. You will be consulted before any additional work requiring extra costs is performed. Payments must be made one month in advance for continual service.
Quotes are valid for 30 days only.
Work will not commence or resume on the agreed website if there are monies outstanding from previous invoices or projects.
Support is charged in 30 minute blocks.
Payments are non-refundable.
Once an initial payment is paid, you are obliged to pay the ongoing monthly payments in advance, unless you notify AU Digital of cancellation of the service. 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 AU Digital has not been contacted regarding the delay, support for the related website may be denied. We will then pass such cases to the Small Claims Court to pursue payment; non-payment can result in county court judgements (ccj’s) being added to the client’s credit rating.
Payment of invoices is required no later than 14 days from the date of the invoice unless by prior arrangement with AU Digital.
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 court summons.
Any additional costs incurred as a result of chasing late debts, including admin, emails, phone calls or faxes or third party charges will be added to the account in question.
