terms and conditions

    1. Once paid for, it is NETWISE policy that all our clients own their content, data, logos, graphics, text copy, designs and styling completely. NETWISE makes no claim whatsoever over copyright or ownership of such client content.
    2. The client must take ultimate responsibility for the legal ownership of all the site content. Any content that turns out to be illegal, libellous or in any way inappropriate is the sole responsibility of the client.
    3. PHOTOGRAPHY: It is assumed that the copyright is either owned by the client, that the client has agreed with the copyright owner that they have freedom to use the photography in whatever way they instruct NETWISE or that the photography is acquired by NETWISE as "royalty free" software or that NETWISE pays a bureau to be able to use stock photography. All copyright and legal issues associated with photography on a client's website are the responsibility of the client.
    1. We can create a complete dump of your website from our servers. For smaller sites this is then emailed to the client. For larger sites, we make up a CD/DVD. Creating a complete website dump and emailing to the client costs £55. There is a £45 surcharge for larger sites that need to fit on a CD/DVD and require posting. Additional CD/DVDs cost £15 each.
    2. We provide website backups "as is" in a state that is/was working on our servers.
    1. Where NETWISE manages the domain, we charge £50 to transfer the domain to a different Internet Service Provider. These charges are not NETWISE charges but are levied by domain name authorities, which we then pass on.
    2. NETWISE does not accept responsibility for any downtime caused by Domain Migration.
    3. EMAIL: On transfer, all email is purged from our systems and responsibility migrates to the new service provider. It is the responsibility of the new service provider to maintain continuity of email services. For customers with Google Apps accounts, these are unaffected by any migration from NETWISE and are bound by the relationship between Google and the client.
    4. WEB: On transfer, all data and backups are purged from our systems and responsibility migrates to the new service provider. It is the responsibility of the new service provider to maintain continuity of web services. NETWISE does not setup the website on your new host nor are we responsible for software incompatibilities or website maintenance of any kind.
    5. CONTENT MANAGEMENT: Content management is a feature of an NETWISE server and is not part of the website. On transfer, the website is essentially "frozen" until the new service provider is able to provide the client with a replacement Content Management System.
    6. WEB STATISTICS: Depending on the type of web statistics used, these may transfer automatically with the site without interruption or they may be lost.
    7. SEARCH ENGINE MARKETING: There is a possibility that, on migration, a website may take a downturn in search engine positioning. There are a variety of reasons for this, particularly when a website shares server space with a large number of other domains. NETWISE cannot be held responsible for any lowering of visibility that results from a transfer away. NETWISE websites with Content Management Systems use a proprietary technology, Dynstatic, to help optimise websites on search engines. This service is not available on third party servers.
    8. PAYMENTS: When a client is transferring away from NETWISE, all outstanding payments and all transfer costs must be made in full PRIOR to the transfer out.
