LeadFly cannot take responsibility for any copyright infringements caused by materials submitted by the client. We reserve the right to refuse any material of a copyrighted nature unless adequate proof is given of permission to use such material.
All written content is to be supplied by the client in electronic form enabling LeadFly to ‘cut & paste’ it into the project itself. This content will be implemented/ inserted only once and all further changes will be the client’s responsibility or will be at at our standard hourly rate (£120 plus VAT).

Any additions to briefs provided will be carried out at the discretion of LeadFly, and where no charge is made by LeadFly for such additions, LeadFly accept no responsibility to ensure such additions are error free, and reserve the right to charge an according amount for any correction to these or further additions.
The client agrees to make available as soon as is reasonably possible to LeadFly all materials required to complete the site to the agreed standard and within the set deadline.
LeadFly will not be liable for costs incurred, compensation or loss of earnings due to the failure to meet agreed deadlines.

A non-refundable deposit of 50% is required with all of our projects before any design work will be carried out.
Staged payments are required throughout the life of a project as detailed in our written proposal; if those payments are not fulfilled LeadFly reserves the right to halt all work on the project until they are paid.
All payments are required before upload to a live server.
After project commencement a reasonable amount of time (4hours) is set aside for meetings (face-to-face, Skype, Google hangouts, conference call, telephone call) in every web design and development project. Every phone call and meeting is timed using industry approved “productivity and invoicing” software and this time is deducted from the overall allowance. LeadFly has the right to invoice for any excess time over and above this limit at its standard hourly rate (£120 plus VAT).
At various stages of the project LeadFly will seek written approval from the client before moving to the next stage. Subsequent changes to previously approved content will be chargeable at our standard hourly rate (£120 plus VAT).
For example, having approved website artwork, once sent for development all changes will be chargeable.
LeadFly has the right to display all design works carried out on https://leadfly.co.uk unless otherwise requested by the client.
LeadFly has the right to insert the statement “website made by LeadFly” into the footer of every website developed, along with a link back to https://leadfly.co.uk. Removal of this statement and associated link is subject to a fee of not less than 20% of the original website cost and needs to be requested in writing by the client.
Once a website has been designed and completed, the final balance of payment is then due in accordance with our payment terms. There are no exceptions to this, i.e If the client decides they no longer want the site, as they have commissioned the work and paid a deposit they are still obliged to pay for the work that has been done. LeadFly will accept no delay in payment caused by any third party action such as your hosting company not being able to implement your build correctly, or domain company delaying the transfer of your domain or any technical issues therein. Non payment will result in legal action being taken if necessary. Once full payment is received for a website, it is assumed that the project has been completed to the client’s satisfaction and no refunds can be offered.
Database, Application And Ecommerce
LeadFly cannot take responsibility for any losses incurred by the use of any software created for the client. Whilst every care has been taken to ensure products are problem free and accurate, the ultimate responsibility lies with the client in ensuring that all software is functioning correctly before use.
Any scripts, applications or software (unless specifically agreed) written by LeadFly remain the copyright of LeadFly and may only be commercially reproduced or resold with the permission of LeadFly.
Where applications or sites are developed on servers not recommended by LeadFly, the client is expected to provide or seek any information, additional software, support or co-operation pertaining to the server required in order for the application to be correctly developed. Where large applications are to be developed, it is the client’s responsibility to provide a suitable testing environment which is identical to the final production environment.
The client is expected to test fully any application or programming relating to a site developed by LeadFly before being made generally available for use. Where “bugs”, errors or other issues are found after the site is live, LeadFly will endeavour (but is not obliged to) to correct these issues to meet the standards of function outlined in the brief.
LeadFly will endeavour to ensure that any developed/designed site or application will function correctly on the server it is initially installed on and that it will function correctly when viewed with the latest version of web browsing software Microsoft Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, for both mac and PC to an acceptable level. LeadFly can offer no guarantees of correct function with all browser software. LeadFly also accepts no responsibility for issues on different devices such as iphone, ipad etc.
No guarantees can be made as to the availability or interruption of the web hosting service, and LeadFly cannot accept liability for losses caused by the unavailability, malfunction or interruption of this service, or for loss of turnover, sales, revenue, profits or indirect, consequential or special loss.
LeadFly reserve the right to refuse to handle in any way, material which may be deemed offensive, illegal or in any way controversial, and also to terminate the hosting service should the necessity arise. Website hosting is not included in any website package, and after 30 days, all clients must make their own arrangements or consult with LeadFly about their available packages. Failure to do so may result in a website being suspended.
Due to external factors, such as changes to the way search engines rank websites, we cannot offer any guarantees regarding the position we will achieve for websites. The process of optimising websites itself will bring in more traffic and hits and you’ll see visits increase to your site naturally. We cannot accept liability for any change in rankings, or drop off in the position of your website due to changes in the algorithms of the search engines or the factors that they use to rank websites.
We use ‘white hat techniques’ when optimising websites and always aim to achieve a top ten ranking for your website within 12 months of undertaking the optimisation process. Due to the work involved payment is generally required in advance and we are unable to offer a refund of any monies to clients in relation to this type of work.
LeadFly reserve the right to refuse to handle in any way, material which may be deemed offensive, illegal or in any way controversial.
Payment Of Accounts
A deposit is required from any new client before any work is carried out. It is LeadFly policy that any outstanding accounts for work carried out by LeadFly or its affiliates are required to be paid in full, no later than 10 days from the date of the invoice unless by prior arrangement with LeadFly.
Once a deposit is paid and work completed you are obliged to pay the balance of payment in full. We will contact clients via email and telephone to remind them of such payments if they are not received when due.
If accounts are not settled or LeadFly have not been contacted regarding the delay, access to the related website may be denied and web pages removed, we will then pass such cases to the Small Claims Court to pursue payment, non payment can result in county court judgements (CCJ’S) being added to the client’s credit rating.
Following consistent non payment of an invoice our Solicitors will contact the client in question, with a view to taking the matter further, and if need be to seek payment through legal procedures, and if necessary court summons.
To better manage our work flow, we have a rush charge policy. Charges on rush jobs will be 150% of our regular rates. A rush job is defined as: A project needing to be started in less than 48 business hours OR worked on outside of these hours. Business hours are from 9:00 AM until 6:30 PM Monday through Friday.
We have a very clear understanding of the need to turn jobs around quickly. But this does mean that we have to stop all other client work to accommodate yours.
When you order a job that is a rush, please specify the time it is needed. We will confirm our ability to meet the schedule and verify that rush charges apply. If you order a job ASAP, we will produce it as soon as the schedule allows. Sometimes these jobs will be produced in less than 24 hours. This is not a guarantee and will incur rush charges.
We anticipate that only a small number of jobs will actually fall under our rush charge category.
Hosting / PPC Management / Social Media Management / Inbound & Blogging Provision

The Client shall have the right, by giving not less than 3 full calendar months written notice to the Service Provider to upgrade, downgrade or request alteration to the services provided and the Service Provider shall have the right, by giving not less than 1 months written notice to the Client to adjust the level of Fees due in relation to the Services provided.
