WEB CARE PLANS TERMS & CONDITIONS
Updated: 10th August, 2018
For the purpose of these Terms and Conditions, where Vision Digitalis mentioned, it is deemed as Vision DIgital, trading as Web Care Plans.
Each client must nominate what website is associated with the plan upon signing up for services to be provided by Vision Digital. If a client has multiple websites that they wish to be serviced by Vision Digital, the client must register each website individually for each plan.
The client understands that all prices and monetary values are quoted in New Zealand Dollars (NZD$), and how much each client is actually charged is dependent on the exchange rate at the time of purchase/charge.
You give authority for Vision Digital to make regular charges to your chosen payment method. Unless otherwise agreed to, these payments will be made once each month and each payment will be made for services to be provided by Vision Digital for the following month.
If, for any reason, Vision Digital is unable to receive payment from you for any month, it will be deemed that you have cancelled your plan, and the provided services will cease operating. If you are unable to make a monthly payment, and we have deemed that you cancelled your plan, you may send an email to Vision Digital to have your plan re-instated.
You may cancel your plan at any time. Upon cancellation of your plan the client is able to request the handover of all website access data from Vision Digital to the client themselves.
To cancel your plan, you may simply put your request in an email and send it to [email protected], once your request has been received, we will cease any further payments/charges being made to your requested payment method.
If you decide to cancel your plan, or discontinue receiving services from Vision Digital you agree to forfeit any remaining days of provided services in the time period that you had previously paid for
The number of free website servicing hours stated on each plan indicates that you may use Vision Digital to work on maintaining the registered website for any length of time which is up to, and including, the number of hours that is listed.
If the client does not use the maximum amount of free hours allotted to them in their specific plan for any month, the remaining hours are forfeited and can not be used in any subsequent months.
The client agrees to make all reasonable attempts to place a request for the use of the free hours of website servicing within 5 days prior to the end of their billing cycle. The client understands that if a request to use the free hours of website servicing is made within 4 days of their billing cycle ending, Vision Digital reserves the right to deny the client use of the free hours for that month, subject to availability of remaining hours in that month.
All free website servicing hours are calculated in 15 minute blocks, meaning that any servicing that took between 0 – 15 minutes would equal only 15 minutes being deducted from their free web servicing hours, and any servicing that takes between 16 – 30 minutes will equate to a total of 30 minutes being deducted from their free web servicing hours. All extra website servicing is charged at the agreed rate, according to the plan chosen by the client, but is broken down into 30 minute blocks. Meaning, if a clients chosen plan allowed them extra website servicing at a rate of $100 per hour, but the servicing requested took between 0 – 30 minutes to complete, the client would be only charged for 30 minutes of servicing, and invoiced for only $50.
All actions completed by Vision Digital on behalf of, or at the request of, the client, which are in addition to he services outlined in the plan you have paid for, are deemed to be website servicing and are subject to the website servicing conditions.
Clients will be issued an invoice for all hours of web servicing completed. Both free and paid for website servicing hours will be issued as an invoice to the client. Any free website servicing that is invoiced will be clearly marked as “free” and the client will not be charged for these free hours. The invoice will be sent so that both Vision Digital, and the client have a record of exactly how many free hours have been used, and how many free hours are left for any specific month.
All extra website service that needs to be paid for will be invoiced to the client within 3 working days, at the end of each billing cycle.
Invoices for any extra website servicing hours are to be paid within five (5) weekdays. If a client fails to pay any invoice within five (5) weekdays from when they invoice was sent, a $50 penalty will be paid by the client, on top of the amount stated in the invoice.
