1. Design Services
Depending on the level of service purchased, New Global Ventures will create a web site tailored toward Your reasonable expectations. The service will include an initial interview, presentation of the initial design and either: 1) Build It For Me customers will receive one (1) round of site update revisions; or 2) Deluxe and Custom Build It For Me customers will receive one (1) round of design updates and one (1) round of site update revisions. If You purchase the optional favicon Service, the Service will include delivery of a standard favicon image based on your web design, logo, or web site initials. New Global Ventures will require all content copy and high quality images for inclusion in Your web site. Deluxe and Custom Build It For Me customers who request custom illustration in the Custom Header will be quoted an additional hourly design fee. Requests for additional design updates or site updates beyond the first update will result in additional hourly design fees based on our number of additional hours worked. All material must be supplied in an electronic file format and transmitted to New Global Ventures electronically via email or file upload. Files that are too large to be transmitted electronically can, by prior arrangement, be delivered on a CD to our facilities via any standard shipping carrier. Content can, by prior arrangement, be faxed or sent to our facilities in hard copy format. Content delivered in hard copy format may incur additional fees for electronic conversion. New Global Ventures is not responsible for delays in web site completion due to delays in the receipt of shipped items. New Global Ventures, in its sole discretion, may require You to re-submit images should they determine that the images are not of high enough quality. New Global Ventures will not begin construction of Your web site until all requested materials and assurances of rights have been received from You. All materials provided should be copies and not original material. New Global Ventures will not return any materials provided by You in the design process. Failure to provide such material within thirty (30) days from request will result in cancellation of Your work order. No credits or refunds will be given for such cancellation. New Global Ventures will strive toward Your satisfaction, but does not guarantee that all of Your requests will be satisfied if they are unreasonable or unable to be accomplished within the scope of the Services. Your publication of the web site is acknowledgement of Your satisfaction with the Services and releases New Global Ventures from any obligation for further revisions or alterations. No credits or refunds shall be given for any reason including dissatisfaction with the design created.
2. Web Site Design Service
The Services are dependent upon Your active subscription to the Web Site Design Service. During the design period, You must maintain your subscription. Failure to maintain this subscription will result in termination of the design process. Cancellation of this service within six (6) months of purchase will incur an early termination fee, the amount to be determined by the level of service. Recurring billing for your Web Site Design Service plan will begin the date of purchase. Cancellation of the service will not entitle You to a refund for the prior months' service. The Services are not transferable to Web Site Design Service accounts or other hosting accounts other than the account initially associated with the Services during the initial purchase. If You purchased custom page layout design services, the page layout design will be done prior to the web site design. If You cancel the custom page layout design service prior to work commencing, You will be entitled to a refund. If You cancel the custom page layout design service after work has commenced, You will incur a termination fee. You may apply a custom page layout design to multiple Web Site Design Service web sites for a fee of one hundred dollars ($100) per additional web site. If you apply a custom page layout design to additional web site service accounts, the template will be applied as-is with no additional changes. You may not apply a custom page layout design to any hosting account other than a Web Site Design Service account.
