web development

Web Development

Womweb Limited develop websites to the specification required by their clients. We will assist in the development of a specification should the client wish dependant on the requirements of the project. We produce sites based on our tried and tested methodology and it is successful. We can, for a slight surcharge develop to a different methodology if required to suit the client's needs.

All our sites which we develop will contain a link to Womweb. This is because we will recipricate and provide you with a link from our site. This link can be removed, but will increase project costs and must be specified before any work commences. Our new clients will also be featured in our portfolio.

Our preferred development environment is based on the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) Stack. We can develop using other languages, but projects may take longer to complete.

Once a specification is complete and a 30 per cent deposit is received we will begin development work based on that specification. A new proposal and specification will be formulated if the requirements of the project alter during the process of development. This allows us to manage project scope alterations as professionally as possible.

Once payment is received all Intellectual Property rights for the project reside with the client and a copy of the project as delivered will be made available via an off-line medium. Depending on the size of the project this could take the form of a DVD-ROM, USB flash disk or External Hard Disk Drive. The cost of this provision is included within the quote provided before the project commences. There may be exceptions to this where third-party products are combined to create the site and we will make you aware of these. The project is your copyright and the belongs to you.

If a development is terminated by the client after all attempts to rectify a problem are exhausted then the deposit minus all development costs to that point will be refunded. Should Womweb Limited cancel a development a refund of monies paid will be made. Where the project is delivered by milestones this condition will apply per milestone.

Womweb shall have no liability for any loss of turnover, sales, revenue or profits, or for loss of software or data, or for indirect, consequential or special loss.
