Tandy Electronics Customer Engagement Policy for Web Design and Development.
Renewal of Existing Professional Support Agreement
Upon approving our financial proposal by the client, we commence the project according to the client’s requirements. By doing so, we do not promise maintenance or updating services to the subjected website. It will only be done after signing a proper maintenance agreement with the client.Since we create websites with editable formats such as HTML or PHP, the client may even proceed maintenance with some other party according to their own preference.
Advance Payment and Refund Polices
Our payment policy states that client needs to pay 50% of the agreement amount as an advance payment and rest 50% may be paid to us before the website is published. Upon approving our financial proposal, the client has to pay 50% of the payment in order to commence the project. Once the advance payment of 50% is paid, we design the web pages in a restricted access server location where the client can view the website as it is been designed. Once the design work is completed up to the satisfactory level of the client, we expect client to pay the rest 50% payment for us to make to web site published. If by any chance, the client decides to discontinue the project while the website is been designed, we will pay back the advance payment, after deducting the amount that was charged for the work that was already done and the refund amount will be decided by Tandy Electronics.
