What’s not included:
Issues with the website, server and service are covered however if the issue can be proven to not be server or service related (i.e. issue on the PC being used), this is not covered.
IT Support can be provided separately, please refer to the IT Support page for prices.
Almost all website development can be done at no extra charge. On occasion there may be a function that is not free, for example receiving online orders or having premium features enabled for a certain function.
In this event you will have the option to proceed with the paid for options and will be responsible for the costs.
I will gladly purchase on your behalf and simply pass the costs on.Wherever possible I will always try to find a free way to meet requirements.
SLA (Service Level Agreement):
I have 2 children and a full time job in addition to running Ibble, which means that I am not able to provide a contracted SLA, which is in part why my charges are much lower than other providers.
Emails are generally replied to within 2 – 24 hours, any major issues with the service (website / email) as soon as I am able – It may mean once I have returned home from work, but most issues are dealt with in short order.
All major work is scheduled during the evenings and weekends.
I will advise ahead of time if I am likely to be unavailable for a length of time (i.e. holiday).
Whilst always happy to advise, I do not provide any inclusive services in relation to the setting up or management of advertising social media. If my workload at the time permits I am happy to provide one off jobs at my standard PC Support rate, please refer to the IT Support page for prices.
The website and its content is owned by the customer. If there are no outstanding invoices a copy of the website can be provided at any time.
Ibble does on occasion use paid for add ons (also known as Plugins and Widgets) purchased as a “multi site” licence (This means I pay for a licence that allows me to use their product on multiple websites) to create the best user experience possible, the charges of which are not passed on to the customer.
In the event that the website is to move to another provider, the responsibility of continuing the licencing falls on you\the new provider.
