The following terms and conditions apply to all website development/design services provided by Conor Bradley – Digital Agency to the Client. Any Other services can be found via the main terms of service.
Please read these terms and conditions carefully, as any purchase or use of our services implies that you have read and accepted our terms and conditions.
No Client needs to have signed an acceptance of these terms and conditions for them to apply. If a Client accepts a quote, then the Client will be deemed to have satisfied themselves as to the terms applying and have accepted these terms and conditions in full.
These Terms and Conditions override any preceding representations, understandings, or accords. The Client’s affirmation conveyed through email, text, or the submission of an initial fee, is indicative of their agreement with and endorsement of these Terms and Conditions. Making a payment online signifies the client’s assent to these stipulations.
Should any provision of this Agreement be deemed invalid, illicit, or unenforceable, it shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remainder of the Agreement. The invalid clause will be substituted by an agreed-upon clause that is valid, legal, and enforceable and aligns most closely with the original intentions of the parties involved.
Fees for services rendered by Conor Bradley – Digital Agency are detailed in the project quote sent to the Client through email. These quotes remain valid for a duration of 60 days. After this period, Conor Bradley – Digital Agency holds the discretion to modify or refuse to provide a quote.
Unless there’s a different agreement in place with the Client, all website design services necessitate an upfront payment. This payment covers seventy (70) percent of the total quoted amount. The work is then presented to the Client for evaluation. The outstanding thirty (30) percent of the quoted amount is payable either upon project completion or 31 days after the initial payment, whichever occurs first. This final payment is required before the work is uploaded to the server or any materials are released.
Payment for services is due by cash, credit/debit card or bank transfer. Bank details are made available on invoices.
During the design phase and upon concluding the overall website development, Conor Bradley – Digital Agency will grant the Client a chance to assess the website’s look and content.

Any concerns or changes must be communicated to Conor Bradley – Digital Agency within this specified period.
Turnaround Time and Content Control

For the development process, Conor Bradley – Digital Agency expects the Client to supply all necessary content for the website, including but not limited to text, images, videos, and audio files.
Failure to provide required website content
Conor Bradley – Digital Agency, as a compact enterprise, prioritizes efficiency by ensuring scheduled projects are executed promptly. Due to this commitment, we sometimes decline other potential projects to guarantee the timely completion of your work.
Therefore, we earnestly request clients to supply all essential materials and details a minimum of one (1) week before the determined completion date. If, for any reason, our progress on your website is hindered because of a delay in receiving the necessary information from your side, we hold the right to levy an additional charge of up to 25%. For projects that include Search Engine Optimisation, it’s crucial to finalize and agree on the site’s text content ahead of time, ensuring a smooth and efficient SEO implementation.
If the client commits to supplying necessary materials but doesn’t deliver them within one (1) week of the agreed completion date, Conor Bradley – Digital Agency has the right to deem the project as concluded, and any remaining balances will become immediately payable. Put simply, clients should only greenlight a project when they’re entirely ready to participate.
Additionally, Conor Bradley – Digital Agency promises to make regular updates to websites that they design and host. However, this commitment operates under a fair usage policy. If update requests for a particular website surpass 3 hours of development time in a year, Conor Bradley – Digital Agency reserves the right to refuse these updates.
IMPORTANT: Please provide text content in formats such as Apple Pages, Microsoft Word, PDF, or directly via email. The titles of the pages in your provided document should correspond with the titles of the planned pages on your website. If you’re unsure about this, feel free to reach out for further explanation.
If your project involves a CMS (Content Management System) website, we will equip you with the necessary system, enabling you to update your content independently.
Conor Bradley – Digital Agency will issue invoices upon project completion, but prior to making the website live. Typically, invoices are sent through email, but clients can opt for a physical copy if preferred. Payments are expected upon receiving the invoice. If a payment remains outstanding for thirty (30) days post-invoice date, a service charge will be applied, which will be twenty percent (20%) of the outstanding amount.
The client commits to compensating Conor Bradley – Digital Agency for any supplementary costs incurred during the project’s execution. Such costs might include acquiring unique fonts, stock images, plugins, and other related materials. Payment for these additional resources is expected before their procurement.

This includes legal expenses and fees associated with third-party collection agencies, as necessary, to ensure compliance with these Terms and Conditions.

Termination will only take effect once this written notice is received by Conor Bradley – Digital Agency. Requests made via phone will not be considered valid unless they are later confirmed in written form.

The client is then obligated to clear this invoice in its entirety within a thirty (30) day period.
