Terms & Conditions


A 'Client' is a person, persons, business or organisation commissioning works or using any of the services provided by rpmwebs.

A 'Project' is any works undertaken or services provided by rpmwebs on behalf of the client.



The acceptance of a commission (project) shall be deemed as a contractual agreement between the client and rpmwebs.

The contract between rpmwebs and the client will be on these conditions, to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions. Any variations to these conditions shall have no effect unless agreed and confirmed in writing by rpmwebs.

Copyright of the completed web design, images, pages, code and source files created by rpmwebs for the client shall remain the property of rpmwebs (unless specifically agreed and confirmed in writing by rpmwebs)

Whilst every endeavor will be made to ensure that the website and any scripts or programs are free of errors, rpmwebs cannot accept responsibility for any losses incurred due to malfunction, the website or any part of it.

rpmwebs will endeavor to ensure website compatibility with the majority of modern web browser, however we no longer support Internet Explorer prior to version 7.

Different web browsers can render images and text with slight differences in visual appearance. Whilst every effort is made to ensure websites look consistent accross all modern browsers, rpmwebs cannot guarantee consistency accross all browsers and viewing medium.

Search Engines

Upon completion of a project rpmwebs will submit the websites url (universal resource locator) to popular search engines.

rpmwebs cannot guarantee rankings in any search engine results.

Domain Names

Domain names will be registered by rpmwebs and also registered to rpmwebs current address.

Domain names will be maintained (paid for) automatically on account by rpmwebs. Clients not wanting to renew domain names must inform rpmwebs in writing 21 days prior to the renewal date otherwise all domain renewal costs will be passed onto the client.

rpmwebs will transfer ownership of domain names to the client (or representative of the client) upon request providing:

  • The client submits his request in writing on letter headed paper.
  • The domain name was originally purchased solely for use by the client requesting ownership transfer.
  • All outstanding payments for projects or partially completed projects are paid in full.

rpmwebs will endeavour to undertake all domain name transfers within a reasonable timeframe, however a small administration fee may be charged.

Where ownership and control of a domain name is transferred to a client, the client will be responsible for managing the domain name, and maintaining annual renewal fees. rpmwebs will not be responsible for loss of a domain name due to non renewal of payment.

Payment of Accounts

It is rpmwebs policy that any outstanding accounts for work carried out by rpmwebs are required to be paid in full, no later than 30 days from the date of invoice unless alternative arrangements have been agreed and confirmed in writing by rpmwebs.

Once an invoice has been issued you are obliged to pay the balance of payment in full. We will contact clients via email and/or telephone to remind them of such payments if they are not received when due.

If any outstanding accounts are not settled within the above time period, 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 clients 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.

Complaints Procedure

rpmwebs will approach the individual responsible for the material in question with a view to resolving the matter to the satisfaction of the complainant.

Formal complaints procedure
The formal complaints procedure should only be used where the complainant feels that the nature of the complaint is too serious to be dealt with informally, or where a satisfactory conclusion has not been reached after following the informal procedure.
