Begin Your Project


Techcare Digital Limited Platforms Terms and Conditions Preamble   Techcare Digital Limited undertakes to provide its clients with digital services of the very highest quality. Part of this commitment involves demonstrating transparency throughout our business processes and being clear about our standard business practices. 

Definitions 'We', 'our', and 'us' refer to Techcare Digital Limited.  'Client' or 'you' is any individual or organisation which pays Techcare Digital Limited in return for products or services.  

‘Completion’ shall mean after work has been carried out according to the agreed project specifications and the product is ready to be sent to the Client for final review. 

‘Web Hosting’ shall mean storing your digital files in computers (web servers) connected to a fast network, so that users may view your website. Anything related to managing these servers and its software, security, support, bandwidth, speed is the responsibility of Techcare Digital Limited unlessstated otherwise.

‘Support’ in relation to Web Hosting shall mean advisory phone calls and guidance, but shall not include any content, SEO services or work outside of scope which we would normally charge additional fees for. 

1. Commencement of Services & Product Delivery 1.1.  We will provide a free written proposal for all proposed work, including a work and invoice schedule; this is valid for four weeks from date of issue. If the client agrees to proceed with the work specified in the written proposal, the contract thereby formed shall be based solely on the contents of that written proposal and the booking form, unless specific variation is explicitly agreed in writing by both parties.     1.2.  We will not commence work on any project until a signed purchase order or our booking form has been signed and provided by the client. 1.3. We aim to publish the completed work on a testing server for you to inspect on time, provided that the feedback time has not exceeded the planned schedule.    1.4. We will provide an estimated date on which the project is due to be completed. This time will be sufficient for the project work to be completed with the client being given sufficient time to review, make decisions and provide any additional content or feedback if required to do so. If the project takes 50% longer than the estimated completion date, then we reserve the right to charge for any additional days beyond this date at our standard day rate.  1.5. Once the work is approved and payment for the final invoice is received, the completed project will be moved to the live web server and/or handed over to the client.  1.6. No invoice will be delayed by a lack of content for any website or platform, where the client is responsible for providing that content or for the client amending any filming dates, or delaying feedback on design work or other aspects of the project whereby the planned completion date is extended.  1.7. No invoice will be delayed when communication with the client has been delayed or whereby we have struggled to correspond or communicate with the client due to annual leave, busy schedules or illness/prolonged leave.  1.8. On delivery of final product, copyright will be transferred to the client, yet we will retain the right to use all approved footage for their own promotional purposes. This may exclude any third party material (e.g. music and voice-over). Confirmation in writing only will state where out-right ownership applies.  1.9. Any contract requiring us to work to specific deadlines provided within the written agreement will be deemed to include a proviso that the clients will make themselves reasonably available to communicate with us. If we deem them not to of been so, then we cannot be held responsible for failing to meet a deadline.      

2. Communications 2.1. You are responsible for providing a valid email address and phone number to us, so that we may communicate with you as needed.  2.2. We require a response or feedback from all communications within 48 hours whether by phone, or email in order to meet the estimated delivery time. 2.3. You agree that email and other electronic communications can be used as a long-distance means of communication and acknowledge that all contracts, notices, information and other communications that we provide to you electronically comply with any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. 2.4. Notice will be deemed received and properly served 24 hours after an email is sent, or three days after the date of posting of any letter.  In proving the service of any notice, it will be sufficient to prove, in the case of a letter, that such letter was properly addressed, stamped and placed in the post and in the case of an email, that such email was sent to the specified email address of the addressee.  

3. Order Amendments ​The customer’s requirements must be clearly provided to us in writing before commencement of work. Any subsequent changes must also be provided in writing and then approved by us as a change control request and may incur a further cost.   

4. Web Hosting    4.1. We undertake to provide a durable website and video hosting service as standard, with 99% uptime. If we do not meet this guarantee during a particular calendar month, the hosting charge for the following month will be reduced in accordance with any agreed Service Level Agreement (SLA).  4.2. We also offer email services and will quote separately for this service.  This will be subject to the terms and conditions at the time of booking.       4.3. We offer support on all of the digital content we provide to our clients, limited to advice and guidance that can be provided over the phone. 4.4. Payments must be paid in advance by bank transfer or other agreed method.  Hosting charges may change with size and bandwidth restrictions.   4.5. All hosting contracts will be run for 12 months as per booking form, the first year will be taken at the time of booking and the subsequent year will be billed 30 days prior to the following year commencing. Payment in full must be received within 30 days. 

5. Domain Names  5.1. Whilst we cannot guarantee that a particular domain name will be available, we will search for a suitable alternative on request. 5.2. The authorities responsible for regulating domain registrations charge an annual fee to ensure the domain name is retained by the holder and cannot be registered by anyone else. Non- payment of the annual fee will result in the domain name being released and becoming available to other users. We charge a fee for the registration of the domain name for a period of one year or more. This fee includes the fees due to the regulatory bodies. 5.3. All clients holding a domain must comply with the terms and conditions of the authority responsible for regulating the respective domain.  Nominet UK regulates the .UK top level domain and their terms and conditions can be obtained from  5.4. In all circumstances, the holder of the domain name will be responsible for ensuring renewal fees are paid. We will accept no responsibility for the loss of domain names or websites due to a client’s failure to pay the required fees. 5.5. The holder of a domain to be used in any of our projects must ensure that administrative control of the domain is released for any previous web services provider before any work is undertaken.

The client will give us the right to publish and use this material for the purpose of website construction and publication.  6.2. The copyright for all material provided by us, such as, graphics, photographs and text, will remain the property of us until such time as payment has been made in full. We will grant the client permission to use this material pending payment. Upon receipt of payment, we will transfer copyright to the client.    6.3. Clients must obtain permission for us to use any material which is copyright of a third party. The client will agree to indemnify and hold harmless us from all claims resulting from the client's negligence or failure to obtain permission to use such material(s), subject to copyright.

We will charge interest on all late debts according to the Late Payment of Commercial Debt (interest) Act 1988.                7.10. If an account remains unpaid 28 days beyond the agreed credit limit, then we will commence legal proceedings to recover the debt.
