What do both parties agree to?
You have the authority to enter into this contract on behalf of yourself, your company or your organisation. You’ll give us the assets and information we tell you we need to complete the project. You’ll do this when we ask and provide it in the formats we ask for. You’ll review our work, provide feedback and approval in a timely manner too.

Changes and revisions
We don’t want to limit your ability to change your mind. The price outlined on the pricing page has a set number of revisions included based on the amount of time that we estimate we’ll need to accomplish everything you’ve told us you want to achieve, but we’re happy to be flexible. The price includes 1(one) revision in the design stage, and 1(one) revision in the Development stage. If you want to change your mind or add anything new, that won’t be a problem as we’ll provide a separate estimate for those additional changes.
We’ll carry out our work in accordance with good industry practice and at the standard expected from a suitably qualified person with relevant experience. That said, we can’t guarantee that our work will be error-free and so we can’t be liable to you or any third-party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages, even if you’ve advised us of them.

Content creation does not include graphic design, editing your images or creating graphics that are not in the style of the example sites.
Browser testing no longer means attempting to make a website look the same in browsers of different capabilities or on devices with different size screens. It does mean ensuring that a person’s experience of a design should be appropriate to the capabilities of a browser or device.
We test our work in current versions of major desktop browsers including those made by Apple (Safari), Google (Chrome), Microsoft (Edge), Mozilla Firefox and Opera. We won’t test in other older browsers unless we agreed separately. If you need an enhanced design for an older browser, we can provide a separate estimate for that.
Mobile browser testing
Testing using popular smaller screen devices is essential in ensuring that a person’s experience of a design is appropriate to the capabilities of the device they’re using. We test our designs in:
iOS: Safari and Google Chrome
Android: Google Chrome
We won’t test in Opera Mini/Mobile, specific Android devices, or other mobile browsers unless we agreed separately. If you need us to test using these, we can provide a separate estimate.
All subscriptions include access to support via the support portal. “Support” means the ability to make requests for technical support assistance via the support portal with reasonable efforts to respond within 3-5 business days.
The number of support requests will be determined by the subscription plan you have chosen, a “Support Ticket” or “Content Change” is a single request that requires Site Rocket to alter, change or maintain your website over and above standard maintenance schedules.
A support ticket may not require additional work in excess of 30 minutes in duration, if your website, through no fault of site rocket, requires additional design or development that will exceed 30 minutes in duration, we will provide a separate estimate for this.
Search engine optimisation (SEO)
We don’t guarantee improvements to your website’s search engine ranking, but the pages that we develop are accessible to search engines. If you’d like us to work on increasing your ranking we will provide a separate estimate for this.
We will do everything to make sure your website functions at a high speed with a google speed grade of C or higher. This involves, image compression, and resizing, caching of files and limiting server requests to increase load times. In the Pro plan we will include the use of a CDN (content delivery network).
We work with a recommended website hosting company and therefore offer support for your website hosting, we’re not an IT service provider, so we don’t offer support for email or other services relating to hosting. We will host your website on our preferred hosting provider with ongoing support and maintenance.
Hosting is limited to your website and website content, no additional media will be hosted on the web servers. Maximum usage limits apply.
