Terms Of Services
The following terms and conditions apply to all services, including design, development, and marketing services provided by Pixelap to the Client, in conjunction with any relevant quotation provided to the Client by Pixelap (Terms), unless otherwise agreed in writing. Acceptance of a quote, purchase, and/or use of the Services shall be considered acceptance of the Terms.
At the time of the proposal, Pixelap will provide the customer with a written estimate or quotation by email. These Terms and Conditions can be read at any time on the pixelap website.
A copy of the written estimate or quotation is to be signed and dated by the customer to indicate acceptance and should be returned to pixelap.
Alternatively, the client may send an official purchase order in reply to the estimate or quotation which binds the client to accept our terms and conditions, or an email acknowledging acceptance of the quotation.
For the avoidance of doubt, Pixelap Terms & Conditions are what govern the job, not any conditions on the customer’s purchase order.
We are sure you understand how important it is as a business that you pay the invoices that we send you promptly. As we’re also sure you’ll want to stay friends, you agree to stick tight to the payment schedule outlined in any proposals we send or written agreements that we reach (without any deductions, set-off, or counterclaim).
If Pixelap and the client agree on a fixed quote regarding any services then they are liable to pay 50% of the billable amount in advance, prior to the commencement of the work. The remaining 50% of the payment will have to be made before the final project deliverables are completed.
We reserve the right to change our rate or service charges.
Payment terms are strictly 14 days following the invoice.
Pixelap shall invoice the clients monthly, in advance.
Also, if the clients do not pay a monthly invoice when it is due, Pixelap shall terminate the services immediately. In this case, we will not be liable to issue 14 days prior notice.
Where a client is a company and whether or not that company has gone into liquidation, the individual directors will be responsible for all outstanding fees and costs in relation to the contract.
