Terms of Sevrice

These terms and conditions form the basis on which you can visit us and our website. Please read them carefully as they contain important information.

General terms and conditions

This site is owned and operated by HodgesNet (the "Business") of Workshed, London St, Swindon SN1 5DG (United Kingdom). If you have any queries about these terms and conditions or if you have any comments or complaints on or about our website, you can contact us at [email protected].

  1.  The contract between the Business and You (the "Recipient")

    • The Business must receive payment of the whole of the price for the services that the Recipient orders before any order can be accepted and any work started. Payment of the price for the services represents an offer on the Recipients part to purchase the services, which will be accepted by the Business only when a confirmation of acceptance is sent by the Business. Only at this point is a legally binding contract created between the Business and Recipient. The responsibility of the Business will be to deliver these services to the Recipient to the highest standard possible in line with the Businesses ability. The responsibility the Recipient towards the Business is to deliver content, media, fulfilment of any request for information, sign off, amends and authorisation to publish or make work "live" must always come in either an agreed timeframe on any project or in a timely fashion not affecting the delivery of service to the Recipient.

  2. Acknowledgement of your order
     
    • To enable the Business to process any order, the Recipient will need to provide the Business with relevant contact details no limited to name, e-mail address, contact telephone number and full billing details. The Business will notify the Recipient by e-mail as soon as possible to confirm receipt of any order and to confirm details. For the avoidance of doubt, this correspondence does not constitute a contract between the Business.

  3. Accuracy of content

    • There is no warranty or guarantee on any of the information provided by the Business. The Business will try extremely hard to provide the greatest, most prompt, and most accurate information. However, if the Business publishes information that is wrong in any way, although it's a mistake, the Business cannot be held liable for it (or the results of the mistake) in any way as it will have been signed off by the Recipient. The Recipient will always exercise due diligence and common sense before agreeing or taking any action or level of implementation.

  4. Prices

    • The prices payable for services that the Recipient orders are as set out on our website, checkout, contract or invoice sent to the Recipient. When required to charge VAT, all prices are inclusive of VAT at the current rates and are correct at the time of publishing.

  5.  Payment Terms

    • The Business will take payment upon receipt of any order from a credit or debit card entered on checkout, or by direct bank transfer. The Business accepts no liability if services are delayed because the Recipient did not give the Business the correct payment details or if payments are delayed or rejected in some way by our payment processor due to an error with any card details entered. If it is not possible to obtain full payment for the services from the Recipient, then the Business reserves the right to refuse to process the order and/or suspend any further services. This does not affect any other rights we may have.

  6. Cancellation

    • Where the Recipient is a consumer as defined in The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 SI 2013/3134 the Recipient has the legal right to cancel any order up to 14 (fourteen) calendar days after the day on which the contract is entered into (the Cancellation Period). On payment of any agreed funds, your contract will commence. The Recipient does not need to give the Business any reason for cancelling this contract. Should the Recipient cancel within 14 (fourteen) days and no meetings have taken place or work commenced, a full refund will be paid upon request minus an admin fee of GBP£180 (or US$250) to cover transactional card charges and administration.
    • Should the Recipient wish to cancel any order the Recipient can notify the Business by email to [email protected]
    • Should the Recipient cancel any agreement after services have begun including any strategic meetings, consultancy sessions or marketing services that will have taken place since the commencement of any agreement, a refund will be granted if requested to a maximum of a 50% (fifty percent) of the sums paid unless otherwise indicated at the point of sale.
    • If the Recipient decides to terminate the services of any ongoing monthly support contract or subscription service provided by the Business, outside of any agreed fixed-term contract, the Recipient may do so by sending an email to [email protected] to serve a 30 (thirty) day notice, no later than 7 (seven) days before the next payment date. The Business will then cancel any auto-recurring charges following the next payment and notice will be worked from the date of your next payment for a period of 30 (thirty) days.
    • All fixed-term agreements must be settled in full even if cancellation of any services is requested.

  7. Cancellation by the Business

    • The Business reserves the right not to process, accept or continue providing services for any order or agreement if:

      1. The Business does not have insufficient staff or resources to deliver the services the Recipient have ordered.

      3. One or more of the services the Recipient ordered was listed at a previously updated price from that published.
      4. Marketing services are requested that go beyond the scope of ethical marketing practices deemed so by the Business.
      5. Services requested enable the subsequent manipulation or coercion of customers and consumers on the purchase or engagement in products or services provided by the Recipient.

      7. If the Recipient is abusive or rude to any team member or supplier, employed or contracted by the Business.

    • Marketing is always a test and at no point will any employee or representative of the Business guarantee any level of result. Any service agreement entered into by the Recipient is done so after careful consideration and is done so at the risk of zero return on investment for any marketing work undertaken.
