Terms & Conditions
The terms and conditions displayed here are intended to communicate both client expectation and that of got web. Alterations to these terms and conditions may occur and the most up to date copy will be displayed here. please read carefully and feel free to raise any questions or concerns by contacting us.
1.1 Website Packages
This section contains all of the services, terms and conditions that are included with the Brochure, Low Maintenance, Business & Business Plus packages that are provided by got web.
1.1.1 Minimum Term
got web will provide the client with applicable services for a minimum term of twelve months.
got web offers a month to month payment option that specifies an amount to be paid by the client for the specified package. By choosing to pay monthly for services a minimum term of twelve months must be completed by the client. The Minimum Term is considered completed once twelve monthly payments have been received and the client has received services for twelve months.
1.1.2 Domain Name Registration
A single domain name annual registration fee is included in the monthly/annual fee charged by got web. The chosen domain name annual registration cannot exceed the cost of AU$ 25.00 or else the excess fee will be payable by the client before the name registration is completed or renewed. got web will suggest domain name options but the final decision is the responsibility of the client.
If the client already owns a domain name they wish to use, the client is still entitled to have another domain name included in their chosen package. If the client would like an additional domain name to be registered under this clause the client must make a request in writing within the first month of service. got web will retain ownership of the newly registered domain name until the Minimum Term (1.1.1) has been completed or paid in full. For clarity – if the client pays the Minimum Term (1.1.1) in advance – they will have ownership of the domain name immediately.
got web registers and manages domain names via a third party service. got web takes no responsibility if this third party service is temporarily unavailable and/or incurs delays on registering an available domain name. got web will promptly register a chosen domain name once confirmed by the client in writing and during general business hours. got web takes no responsibility if a domain becomes unavailable for any reason before got web attempts to register the domain.
