Terms & Conditions
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Customer as an authorised user and jigsawconnect.com and by using jigsawconnect.com’s services, the Customer accepts, and agrees to be bound by, this Agreement.
Agreement to Terms and Conditions
This Agreement takes effect on the date on which the Customer first uses or tests services provided by jigsawconnect.com or when the Customer pays for their services (including paying a deposit), whichever is the earliest.
From time to time, it will be necessary to update the terms and conditions and the Customer agrees to be bound by the new terms and conditions by their use of the system after the implementation date for them.
We reserve the right to impose immediate implementation of new terms and conditions where necessary for the protection of our computer system(s). Should the Customer find any new terms and conditions unacceptable, then the Customer will be granted a refund of any unexpired part of their subscription and the Customer agrees that, save for this refund, the Customer will not make any claims whatsoever for compensation in relation to the cancellation or withdrawal of their subscription.
The Customer is responsible for reviewing information regularly posted online in the terms and conditions pages.
Conceptualising is the process of producing website concepts for customers. Concepts can include site mock ups, graphics and design proposals. For higher cost websites this will be included but for low cost sites (below £1000) please bear in mind that unless previously agreed, only one concept is possible. You should therefore ensure that you let us have your preferred colour scheme and design requirements beforehand. If you don’t do this we will design the website appropriately but if it is not to your taste we may not be able to rework the website without additional charges. This is why it is often best to show us another website that you like as an example of what you require.
