All works to be undertaken will be as agreed by the Client and set out in the Kulaweb Technologies confirmation order email.

Kulaweb Technologies will only commence work on a Project after receipt of a non refundable, 30% deposit of the quoted project fee from the client which covers the cost of design work carried out as well as any administration work. Kulaweb Technologies will also require 20% payment upon overall approval of the home page design. The final 50% payment is to be made on completion of the website. The website will only go live once the clients remaining balance is paid in full.
Kulaweb Technologies will provide the Client with an estimated completion date for the Project if requested. Kulaweb Technologies will endeavour to meet any given deadline, but do not guarantee and are not bound in any way to complete the Project by this date.

Kulaweb Technologies will renew domain names when they becomes due. However we will invoice for the renewal 28 days prior to domain expiration date and if the invoice is not paid in full the domain will be allowed to expire, Kulaweb Technologies can not be held liable for this. However, Kulaweb Technologies will make reasonable effort to contact the Client regarding domain renewal.
When a Client renews hosting with Kulaweb Technologies , this also includes domain renewal if the renewal is needed to keep the site functioning and was purchased as part of the hosting package. If the Client does not renew the hosting, their domain name could be made available to the public for purchase and Kulaweb Technologies can not be held liable for this.
Renewal of hosting will be annually from the date the website was made live. The hosting will not be renewed if Kulaweb Technologies cannot contact the Client or the Client requests for Kulaweb Technologies to not host this site.
