1. Billing and Payment Terms
Client agrees to pay for service using a credit card and/or 3rd party merchants such as PayPal and any future renewals will be billed to the same card unless otherwise cancelled. Payment will be billed monthly, quarterly or annually depending on the package selected and agreed upon. Payment will be made for the selected term.
Users may not jump to multiple accounts to abuse “new customer” discounts. Users in violation of this policy will have both accounts suspended until all outstanding invoices are satisfied. Users that abuse our discount system are subject to termination without a refund.
It is the clients responsibility to ensure their payment information is up to date, and that all invoices are paid on time. The Client agrees to pay for the Services in advance of the time period during which such Services are provided. Subject to applicable laws, rules, and regulations, payments received will be first applied to the oldest outstanding invoice in your billing account.
Unless otherwise provided, the client agrees that until and unless the client notifies Marketing Favour of their desire to cancel the Services, you will be billed on an automatically recurring basis to prevent any disruption to the Services, using the credit card or other billing information on file with Marketing Favour.
All invoices must be paid within seven (7) days of the invoice due date. Any invoice that is outstanding for more than seven (7) days may result in the suspension or termination of Services. Access to the account will not be restored until payment has been received. If the client fails to pay the fees as specified herein, Marketing Favour may suspend or terminate your account and pursue the collection costs incurred by Marketing Favour, including without limitation, any arbitration and legal fees, and reasonable attorneys’ fees. Marketing Favour will not activate new orders or activate new packages for customers who have an outstanding balance on their account.
Our Professional website package is purchased on a 3-month subscription and will roll over thereafter. Upon purchasing this package, you agree to these terms.
If you purchase a package upfront for a set amount of time, for example, 3 or 12 months, after this period your subscription will roll over to a monthly subscription.
If you miss a payment, you will have 7 days to pay your outstanding balance. After 14 days if a missed payment, Marketing Favour withholds the right to terminate your agreement and take down your website. After this period you will have 60 days to settle your balance and you will be charged an additional £40 admin fee for turning your website back on. If payment has not been made after this period your website will be deleted and can therefore not be retrieved.
As part of our website packages, we offer a free domain name. Marketing Favour reserves the right to apply an additional charge if the customer requires a domain other than co.uk.
If the customer continues with their subscription, upon the 11th month, Marketing Favour will automatically renew the customer domain free of charge for a further 12 months. If you chose to terminate your subscription with us at any point and wish to keep your domain name, Marketing Favour will charge an administration fee of £39.99 per domain transfer. If you do not request this in writing upon cancelling your subscription, we will allow your domain name to expire at the next renewal.

Marketing Favour will supply a project brief following completing of an online briefing questionnaire or telephone consultation as part of our required services.

The client has 48 hours to raise any concerns with the project brief after which time no changes can be made. Marketing Favour withholds the right to charge additional fees for their time to make amends to the project brief if the client raises concerns after the 48 hour period. It will have been constructed to represent the combination of the verbal brief and all other verbal contact regarding this project up to and including the quotation submission and overrides all previous documentation or verbal agreements. The client must ensure all functionality described matches their desired requirements, and that all required functionality is specified. The project brief document is created for the following purposes:
- As a specified list of the functionality required in the website/service by you, the client.
- As a checking document for you, the client, to double-check your requirements.
- As a legally binding agreement describing the scope of the project.
- As a development team working document.
- As a development quality control document.
It is extremely important that you verify that the website and/or service functionality explained within the project proposal matches your requirements. Changes following order placement will require additional briefing, specification and quotation and may require further development time to be added to the original dates quoted which will move the delivery date and subsequent project launch. It is entirely the responsibility of the client to ensure the content and functionality of the website they request Marketing Favour to design and build and therefore approve does not infringe the copyright of other website designs or functionality.
4. Client Approval
Marketing Favour will provide the Client with an opportunity to review a hard or soft copy mock-up sample web page prior to web site construction. Once approved by the Client, the construction of the web site will begin. Any changes to the website or service after approval are chargeable. The client will be offered the opportunity to privately review and make minor ‘content’ changes to the web site and ensure that the web site includes all the functions outlined in the project brief prior to the site going live for up to 2 weeks. This private preview is carried out via the Marketing Favour testing server or loaded within clients hosting. At the end of (or during) this period, the Client must submit any queries or omissions to Marketing Favour in writing or by e-mail, if no communication is received it will be deemed that the web site fulfils the functionality specified in the project brief and will be made ready to go live. Any queries or changes requested after this time will be deemed to be outside of the original project brief and be charged accordingly. Additional functionality requests will be quoted for separately if they are out of the scope of the original project brief and/or package that the client signed up for.
Once the Client has approved the final preview the web site will be made live and accessible to all users of the World Wide Web. Marketing Favour accepts no responsibility whatsoever for loss of business if bugs are found after the first two weeks of the client’s approval.
