If you have accepted an estimate, completed your initial deposit of 50% of the proposed estimate or have hired me through other written confirmation method, you are now in agreement with the outlined terms. You (hereinafter referred to as “you”,”your” or “client”) are in cooperation with She Makes Webthings(hereinafter referred to as “contractor”) as an independent contractor for a specific project of developing and/or improving a website or other digital medium as outlined in the estimate an/or written communication that you have been provided with.

Description of Project and Processes
Either party may cancel the contract within reasonable notice of three(3) days, or may be put into immediate effect based on mutual agreement. The deposit fee will be forfeited in lieu of compensation to the contractor. This is to cover design and administration time spent, resources purchased and allocated, research time and administration costs. If the time spent on the project exceeds the deposit amount, the client may be invoiced for the billable time at the current hourly rate.
However, if a contract is cancelled by the client two(2) weeks from the date that the estimate was accepted or two(2) weeks from the date that the deposit was made, without mutual prior agreement, the project will be terminated and the entire amount of the contract then becomes due.
If a project is cancelled by the contractor, due to unforeseen circumstances, the deposit will be refunded in full to the client in a timely manner.
As a special consideration for non-profit organizations, I do offer a 15% discount on my hourly rate up to a maximum of $1,000 after the first completed non-discounted work order. This discount is reduced from billable charges and is not offered as an up-front credit.
Changes or requests which are not a part of the agreed upon work order or estimate may be subject to additional billable charges. Depending on the request, the additional charges charges may be billed at a flat rate or by the hourly rate of $35-$45 per hour, depending on the scope of the work being performed, and will be accepted by the client prior to any work being performed. These charges may include : additional pages, purchase or use of premium software or themes, stock photography, fonts, tech support and communication with third party vendors on your behalf, custom functionality and other comparable services or expenses. All accepted billable charges will be documented and a detailed invoice will be provided to you upon completion.
Any items created by the contractor including but not limited to logos, mock-ups, website designs, and domain names remain property and copyright of She Makes Webthings until payment is paid in full by the client.
If you are being billed at an hourly rate for service, all charges will be invoiced at the end of each month. An electronic invoice will be sent to the client via email to the primary address of prior communications unless requested otherwise. All invoices are due within 14 days from the date of creation. Any past due amounts will incur a 10% interest charge per month beginning from the day of delinquency, unless prior arrangements has been made.
If you are on a maintenance plan, invoices will also be created at the end of each month for the scheduled upcoming service.
