Terms & Conditions

  1. Term. The services under this Agreement will last until the completion of the project, from the date of this Agreement.

Either Party may choose not to renew by following the procedure outlined in the preceding sentence.

If the credit card or debit card is declined for any reason, Iterate shall have the right to charge fifty dollars ($50.00) in declined-card fees. Payment is due the first day of the month of service and if the card charged is declined, payment is deemed delinquent and past due. Past due balances shall bear interest at one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month until paid. Because all transactions are conducted electronically, it is understood and agreed that the physical credit card or debit card need not be present with Iterate in order for the charge to the card to be valid and that the validity of such charge will not be challenged in this context.

Invoices and Estimates

By making a payment towards any estimate or invoice; the client is agreeing to the terms and conditions found on this page.

If there are any tasks NOT itemized on an estimate or invoice that the client expects to be completed, then they are NOT included within the scope and budget. This means they will require an additional, or revised, estimate and funding.

Unless specified otherwise all estimates are time-based. Therefore if more time is required than was originally estimated, whether to complete a project or satisfy the client’s expectations, we will notify the client as soon as possible and await written approval of the additional time and respective cost before proceeding with unapproved time.

Project Process

Website Development Projects


Before we promise to begin general development and programming, the client must provide written approval of the design files. Once approval is received, the design phase of the project is considered complete and any further revisions requested by the client will be billed by the hour.


When integrating a content management system, such as Laravel Voyager or WordPress, into a website clients often wonder if it will change the design of their existing website. Ultimately we can integrate WordPress into any website without modifying the design at all.

However, it’s important that your website's code is standards-compliant. As it relates to the design this means that, unless there is an explicit marketing or functional reason for the design of an element or page to be unique from its counterparts; we will ensure there are consistent standards for the design across the site.

For example; if your website has a button that is a specific width on two pages, but on a third, its size is slightly different, we will match it to the majority.

These types of changes are usually very subtle if noticed by our clients and their users at all. But we opt to disclose this to clients as – on rare occasions – some clients want to pay the extra to avoid standards compliancy in favor of their design preference.


While we will assist clients with implementing their content; the client is ultimately responsible for the development and implementation of their website’s content (all text on the website including navigation, page titles, body, etc…). This means that clients cannot withhold payment or delay the project due to contingency to content.


After the website has been published; training materials can be accessed upon signing into the administrative section of their website. Of course, if the training materials are insufficient, our staff is available to assist the client as is necessary using the pre-paid time that was allocated within the estimate and invoice.

Website & Application Development

Unless specified otherwise in the written estimate/agreement; the client must remit the final payment of the remaining balance immediately prior to the publication of the website or application.


For ongoing website development work you will be charged every Monday, or when the current work is completed, for the previous week's work – whichever comes first.

Recurring Services

  • Advertising Management – Min. 6 month commitment. Why?
    • We invest significant time during the first 60 days beyond what is paid for.
    • 6 months gives us sufficient time to experiment with different strategies and measure the strengths and weaknesses between them.
  • General Retainers  – Min. 6-12 month commitment, depends on scope of work.


Website Development

For clients whose websites are hosted on our servers, and domains are registered through our business account, we offer a lifetime warranty. If You choose to host or register their domain elsewhere; this warranty becomes void. If You choose to delegate access to any third party, such as developers or marketers, any warranties are voided immediately.

The warranty covers any server, code, or design-related issues that cause the site to function differently than was written within the project(s) estimate(s) and proceeding invoice(s).

Administrative access to websites or the code of a client's website is strictly prohibited from third parties. This includes managing plugins and theme files. If a client desires to work with another developer or development company, they must transfer their website to that party. This is to ensure optimum security and reliability of the website and server.

All websites and web applications we develop will be fully operational in the latest and most popular versions of browsers according to the World Wide Web Consortium (basically the government for website development standards).

Plugin Integration

If the client’s project includes the integration of plugins provided by a third party we are not liable in any way to warranty that application. This includes applying clients' requested revisions and enhancements unless otherwise noted in the project's invoice.

Ownership & Rights

Domain Names

ICANN is the organization that regulates the internet. They require at least three specific types of contact information to be registered:

  • Owner
  • Technical Contact
  • Administrative Contact

If we purchase a domain name on your behalf, or transfer an existing domain to our company you will be made, or remain, the listed Owner if you have pre-paid or once you have reimbursed us for the expense.

Once a purchase or transfer has been made ICANN requires that the domain name cannot be transferred again for 60 days. This is not our policy, it’s out of our control.

The process of transferring a domain is technical and requires someone with experience like a professional web programmer. However, we will assist, at no additional charge, with that transferring process for up to 30 minutes (the transferring process should only require 5-10 minutes for someone with experience).

As long as you are the registered owner you will always be able to transfer your domain to a new provider without needing to communicate with us – as ICANN will send approval and instructional emails to the registered Owner.

Digital Assets

If You employ us and have paid in full for any digital assets (logo, business card, website design, infographic, website code, database, etc…) then we will relinquish intellectual property rights to you at the time they are created and delivered for final approval via a link to a folder on Google Drive. You are responsible to keep track of these assets after we deliver them. If you need assistance downloading them on that date or later you may employ us by the hour or invite a third party to assist.

Photography/Videography Digital Assets

For clients who employ us for photography or videography, we assume we reserve the right to use them as portfolio pieces unless requested otherwise in writing before the project begins. Otherwise, all intellectual property rights remain with our clients.


The client releases the Company for any and all liability of physical or digital damage to items provided by the Client to the Company for photo or video. The Client retains intellectual property rights but otherwise releases ownership of provided items to the Company.


In general, we provide a link to Google Drive where we store all of your digital assets – apart from website database and code – at the start of a project.

If you employ us for website development, domain registration, and hosting services then you will also receive, upon request, the administrative username and password to the content management system (typically WordPress), as well as the Unix username and password to the web server itself, but there is no username or password to manage your domain as that is a service we manage for you in a private interface. Although, that does not limit your authority to transfer the domain away to another provider at any point.

Will I received training?

Website Development

We provide training materials that will be in step-by-step written, pictorial, or video form. If you require additional training you may hire us at our hourly rate or purchase a retainer for ongoing support.

Project Conditions

Website Development

If you have employed us for a website development project you are responsible for the following:

  1. You must provide the content for all of the pages on your website in a Rich Text Format document such as Google Documents, Microsoft Word, etc…
    1. This includes all media, such as images.
  2. Any content revisions that you want to make after that are out of scope and will not be completed by our staff unless that time is paid for. Although, you may enter the content yourself (and request training) after your balance is paid in full.
  3. This includes providing photos. If you would like us to acquire them for You we can do so at our hourly rate, and You will be responsible for paying the fee to the stock photography company we acquire the photos from if you approve them, beyond the scope of any existing Agreements.

Content Implementation

For projects where we are required to implement content that has been provided to us, we do not guarantee our estimated labor. This is due to a high degree of subjectivity to how the content is laid out, a high level of variance among website content editors and respective Themes, etc… We will, however, provide written notice and await written approval if we believe we will require more time.

If we require more time to implement content than was estimated and you decide not to give written approval to continue you are still obligated to make payment for the previously approved labor.

Form Creation

When a project requires the creation of a form from a document, or otherwise, unless explicit instruction is provided, we reserve the right to use our discretion as to how the form will be coded, what tools will be used to develop it (such as WordPress Plugins), what types of fields will be used when it’s being developed, etc…

For forms that require signatures, unless explicit instruction is provided, we assume that a checkbox accepting the Terms & Conditions along with a field for their first name and last name, as well as automatic capturing of their IP address is acceptable.

If explicit instruction is provided, it must be included in the Proposal before payment is made to ensure those expectations are accounted for in the project’s budget and timeline.
