Terms of service (also known as terms of use and terms and conditions, commonly abbreviated as TOS or ToSToU or T&C) are the legal agreements between a service provider and a person who wants to use that service. The person must agree to abide by the terms of service in order to use the offered service. Terms of service can also be merely a disclaimer, especially regarding the use of websites. Vague language and lengthy sentences used in the terms of use have brought concerns on customer privacy and raised public awareness in many ways. By submitting payment for our invoice, you acknowledge and accept our terms and conditions. 

Project Acceptance

At the time of estimation, the Company will provide the customer with a written estimate or quotation. By accepting the estimate or quotation the customer is agreeing to the Terms & Conditions set out herein.

Provision of Materials

You agree to provide us with the specific copy, images and information we require in order to complete the work, or to advise us as to where we can locate such materials. We accept no responsibility for your work not being completed by a specific date if we are unable to secure necessary and/or suitable information and/or materials from you.

If you cannot supply the information you wish to feature in your product, we will do what we can to obtain it, but we accept no responsibility for errors, omissions or discrepancies which may be present on the final. The time taken to compile the data, as well as any time required to correct errors, omissions or discrepancies which have arisen through your not providing us with adequate materials, will be charged at our standard rate. We accept no responsibility for the delay caused in providing you with the final work as a result of your supplying us with insufficient or unsuitable materials.

Where you supply or specify materials, we will take every care to secure the best results in the finished product, but we accept no responsibility for imperfect work caused by defects in or unsuitability of materials so supplied or specified.

Proof Agreement

If the Company has provided you with a proof, your signing this agreement confirms that you agree to the design and contents of the printed document as depicted on the proof. By signing this agreement, you absolve the Company of all liability for any errors, omissions or discrepancies which may be present on the proof. Once you have signed this agreement and proof if supplied, you are not able to make any changes to the final product, nor are you able to hold the Company responsible for anything you are unhappy with. This contract revokes your right to take any kind of action against the Company for any aspect of the work with which you are later dissatisfied. Signing this contract means that, as long as the finished product is consistent with the proof if supplied, you must pay in full for the work. These terms are final and non-negotiable.

Website Updates & Site Maintenance

These are charged at our standard rate per hour (or part thereof). If you want to introduce new material in the form of extra pages, additional functions, or more information than is already available on your site, this must be paid for as a new job or hours taken from a prepaid package if you have this account with us.

Hosting & Email Accounts 

Hosting for websites is charged per year. No clients or third parties will be granted FTP (File Transfer Protocol) access to our servers or any of our affiliates. Where a CMS (Content Management System) license and functionality is purchased, hosting is charged from £300 plus VAT per annum. One pop email account is provided, all additional email addresses will be forwarded to this or another email address which must be provided by the client.

The Company take no responsibility for any loss of business through non retrieval of emails, bounced messages or undelivered electronic mail. The Company take no responsibility for the content of emails including attachments and viruses.

Cancellation of any website will result in the withdrawal of the hosting package after 48 hours. All hosting packages are non-refundable. Should the client request that a domain name purchased by the Company on their behalf be transferred to another host, a release fee of £50 + VAT will be charged. Website hosting will be renewed automatically as part of the initial contract, but a notice period of not less than 14 days will be given at the time invoicing. Clients must cancel their renewal in writing within this notice period, otherwise all charges will become payable and cancellation will NOT be accepted after this date, as monies will have been paid by the Company on the client”s behalf.

Domain Names

Domain name of the client’s choice (subject to availability) can be provided as part of our hosting package by the Company. This cannot be a domain name already registered with another provider, but must be an additional one in such cases. Delay in websites going live because of administrative issues will not result in a delay in the site going live on the domain name that we have purchased on your behalf.  Once the site is live on the domain name, all outstanding payment is due. It is not the Company’s responsibility if there is a delay in the transfer of a domain name held with another provider, and this will not be accepted as a reason to delay payment in full of all outstanding monies.


Any systems, including eCommerce, bespoke systems and Content Management Systems (CMS), provided to the client remain the intellectual property of the Company and as such no access is given to the source code or database. Systems cannot be transferred away from our provided hosting solution. The Company websites are built on the Linux or Coldfusion platforms and may not work on Windows servers or other non-Linux, Coldfusion systems.


E-commerce/CMS systems will be provided as an empty shop/site, and training will be given to the client(s) on using the system. A delay in the client populating the e-shop/site will not be accepted as a reason for delayed payment as, once it is ready to be populated and training has been given, the Company’s job is done. The Company offers a service to populate the client’s shop site/CMS on their behalf, and prices are available on request for this service. Additional training and support packages are available, and again the prices for these services are available on request.

Website Approval

Once a client has agreed the look and feel proof for the website and instructed the Company to proceed to build, any subsequent changes in style or design requested by the client will be charged for at the appropriate hourly rate.

Once a complete website, or changes to a website are made live on the website on the clients instruction, it is deemed that the site and/or the content of the site have been approved and the work is therefore completed.

Clients have a period of 14 days in which to revert back any further changes and corrections afterwhich Hughes & Co reserve the right to make additional charges for further work.

Exceptions (Web)

We accept that certain details regarding your business, such as telephone numbers and email addresses, sometimes change, and that the details placed in a proof are liable to change. To this end we will amend smaller details such as these as part of our construction package. This policy applies throughout your contract with the Company: Larger changes, such as the creation of a new page or introduction of a new feature on your site, or the sourcing / changing of images are not covered by this policy and must be paid for.

Payment Terms (Web)
