This Website Design Agreement (“Agreement”) is being made between [YOU] (that’s “You”) located at [YOUR ADDRESS] and Fabrizio Tumolo (that’s “We” or “Us”) on [DATE]. [YOU] and Fabrizio Tumolo may also be referred to as “Party” or together as the “Parties”.
You want a website and We can’t wait to build it for You. We will provide You with the following services (“Services”) in a timely and professional manner.
If You decide the Services aren’t exactly what You are looking for, don’t worry because We can change the scope of the Services for You at any time. To update the scope of the Services, all You have to do is let Us know what You would like to change by filling out a simple form called a “Change Order”. The Change Order will explain what You want Us to do differently. If the new Services are going to require a bit more work for Us, then both Parties will have to agree in writing to an updated cost for the Services. Speaking of costs…
- Cost & Payment
They say nothing good in life is free, and this is no exception.
Total Cost of the Services - sent in separate invoice(s).
We know You are excited to receive your final product, and We don’t want to leave You waiting. We will roll up our sleeves and get work on the agreed upon date and continue until the satisfactory completion of the Services. This means that We won’t throw the towel in until the website We develop for You is performing exactly as agreed to.
We want to keep You informed of the progress We are making on your website. We will share our work with You via Google Docs, Dropbox, or other file sharing service and be available to answer any questions You may have during that time.

- Phone Consultation Fees
We believe in you get what you pay for and telephone consultation during the project is not free. It's at the discretion of the website project manager, however, because the initial consultation is FREE, therefore the remained of the project should be managed through emails and/or centralized project space e.g. trello.com
If there is further telephone consultation needed throughout the project that is outside of the agreed initial project scope then this will be charged at £60ph, billed every 15minutes.
- Dispute Resolution
a. Negotiation: We want to work this out. In the event of a dispute, the Parties agree to work towards a resolution through good faith negotiation.

- Litigation: If litigation is necessary, this Agreement will be interpreted based UK law, regardless of any conflict of law issues that may arises. The Parties agree that the dispute will be resolved at a court of competent jurisdiction in the agreed upon State.
- Solicitor’s Fees: The prevailing party, or “winner” as non-solicitors call it, will be able to recover its attorney’s fees and other reasonable costs for a dispute resolved by binding arbitration or litigation.
If any section of this Agreement is found to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the rest of the Agreement will still be enforceable.
- Complete Contract
This Agreement puts the Parties entire understanding of the Services to be performed and anything else the Parties have agreed to in black and white (literally).
