Terms of Services
(Updated June 9, 2010)

Unless otherwise stated, the purchase price includes: design of your website, domain name registration, site hosting, update requests anytime, search engine optimization, performance tracking, and personalized service! ** Most customers only request monthly or quarterly text-based updates. If your website requires more frequent or extensive updates additional charges may apply.  We will work together to create a custom package and price that is right for you.

Contact and Updates
I pride myself on having very personalized service. Since my hours of website design work are irregular, email is always the best way to ensure that your questions and concerns will be answered most efficiently.  Most updates are made within 2 business days of the request. (Updates involving photos, redesign, or changes to layout may take longer.)

Design Service Expiration and Renewal
One month prior to your website design expiration you will be reminded that your next year's payment is due.  Each year your payment entitles you to the website design layout that I created as well as updates, web space, and email accounts. Payments must be made by the account expiration date or the website will no longer be active. If you choose to discontinue your service with me, you retain full rights to your domain name. However, if you would like to continue using my website design layout you must pay a design fee for the copyright.
