1. Authorization.
The Client (hereinafter referred to as "Client") is engaging Green Light Web Services as an independent contractor for the specific purpose of designing a World Wide Web site, herein after referred to as "Web Design Project", to be published on the Client's account on an Internet Service Provider (ISP)/Web Presence Provider (WPP) computer, herein after refer to as "Hosting Service", or provided on diskette at the Client's option. The Client hereby authorizes Green Light Web Services to access this account, and authorizes the Hosting Service to provide Green Light Web Services and its designer, Sean Planck, with "full access" to the Client's account, and any other programs needed for this Web Design Project that are included as part of the Client's service agreement/level. The Client also authorizes Green Light Web Services to submit the completed Web Design Project to major Web Search Engines.

2. Development.
This Web Design Project will be developed using Macromedia® Dreamweaver.

  • Compatibility - Designing a web site to fully work in multiple browsers (and browser versions) can require considerable, extra effort. It could also involve creating multiple versions of code/pages. Green Light Web Services represents and warrants that the web site we design for you will work in:

    • Microsoft® Internet Explorer versions 7 and up ($500 charge IE6 compatibility)
    • Mozilla Firefox version 2.5 and up

While Green Light Web Services will make reasonable efforts to design a fully-functional web site, Green Light Web Services's warranty does not cover AOL, text-based browsers or requested special effects that we have advised you against.

  • For People with Disabilities – Green Light Web Services' standard is to meet at least half the currently recommended guidelines for web site development. Without sacrificing quality and design, we try to ensure that the content and functions we build into our web sites are available to all visitors.

3. Assignment of Web Design Project.
Green Light Web Services reserves the right, and you hereby agree, to assign subcontractors to this Web Design Project to insure that the terms of this agreement are met as well as on-time completion.

4. Copyrights and Trademarks.
The Client unconditionally guarantees that any elements of text, graphics, photos, designs, trademarks, or other artwork furnished to Sean Planck and/or Green Light Web Services for inclusion in the Web Design Project are owned by the Client, or that the Client has permission from the rightful owner to use each of these elements, and will hold harmless, protect, indemnify and defend Sean Planck and Green Light Web Services and its subcontractors from any liability (including attorney's fees and court costs), including any claim or suit, threatened or actual, arising from the use of such elements furnished by the Client.

5. Web Site Maintenance.
Website Maintenance is not included in this agreement. Maintenance plans are available with a Maintenance Plan Agreement once the initial project is complete.

6. Completion Date.
Green Light Web Services and the Client must work together to complete the Web Design Project in a timely manner. We agree to work expeditiously to complete the Web Design Project no later than 30 days after Client has submitted all necessary materials. If the Client does not supply Green Light Web Services with complete text and graphics content for this Web Design Project within 45 days of the effective date of this agreement, the entire deposit amount of the agreement shall be retained by Green Light Web Services as liquidated damages and the contract shall become null and void, at Green Light Web Services' option, unless the Web Design Project is canceled in writing by the Client prior to 45 days of the effective date of the agreement.

7. Project Delivery.
The final web site design project will be published to the Client's hosting service upon receipt of final payment or delivered via diskette upon the receipt of full payment. The Client understands that Green Light Web Services does not provide any hosting services in connection with this Web Design Project. Hosting services require a separate contract with the hosting service of the Client's choice. The Client agrees to select a hosting service which allows Green Light Web Services full access to the Client's account via FTP (File Transfer Protocol). The Client will be solely responsible for any and all hosting service charges.

8. Electronic Commerce Laws.
The Client agrees that the Client is solely responsible for complying with any laws, taxes, and tariffs applicable in any way to the Web Design Project or any other services contemplated herein, and will hold harmless, protect, and defend Sean Planck and Green Light Web Services and its subcontractors from any claim, suit, penalty, tax, fine, penalty, or tariff arising from the Client's exercise of Internet electronic commerce and/or any failure to comply with any such laws, taxes, and tariffs.

9. Web Design Project Copyright.
Copyright to the finished web design site produced by Green Light Web Services will be owned by Sean Planck and/or Green Light Web Services. The Client will be assigned rights to use the Web Design Project as a web site, once final payment under this agreement and any additional charges incurred have been paid. Rights to photos, graphics, source code, work-up files, and computer programs specifically are not transferred to the Client, and remain the property of their respective owners. Green Light Web Services and its subcontractors retain the right to display graphics and other Web Design elements as examples of their work in their respective portfolios. All Web Design Projects will contain a copyright/legal statement with a link to Green Light Web Services' Design Services Web Site.

10. Payments.
Payments must be made promptly based on the terms of this Web Site Design Project. Green Light Web Services reserves the right to remove any Web Design Project from viewing on the Internet until final payment is made. All payments are to be made within 30 days after completion and approval of the Web Design Project by the Client. In case collection proves necessary, the Client agrees to pay all fees (including all attorney's fees and court costs) incurred by that process. This agreement becomes effective only when signed by Green Light Web Services. Regardless of the place of signing of this agreement, the Client agrees that for purposes of venue, this agreement was entered into Los Angeles County, California, and any dispute will be litigated or arbitrated in Los Angeles County, California, and the Client hereby consents to the personal jurisdiction of the California State Courts. Furthermore, the Client waives any right to or claim of sovereign immunity. Adding of Meta Tags (Description and Keywords) and the submission of the Web Design Project to Web search engines and updating occur only after the full final payment is made. All payments will be made in U.S. Dollars.
