Terms And Conditions

Please read these terms and conditions carefully. Any purchase or use of our services implies that you have read and accepted our terms and conditions.
Charges for services to be provided by Made in Scotland (Increase The Wedge Ltd) are defined in the project quotation that the Client receives via e-mail. Quotations are valid for a period of 15 days. Made in Scotland reserves the right to alter or decline to provide a quotation after expiry of the 15 days.
Unless agreed otherwise with the Client, all website design services require an advance payment of a minimum of fifty (50) percent of the project quotation total before the work is supplied to the Client for review. A second charge of fifty (50) percent is required upon completion of the work, prior to upload to the server or release of materials.
Payment for services is due by cheque or bank transfer. Cheques should be made payable to Made in Scotland and sent to Made in Scotland (Increase The Wedge Ltd), Princes Gate, 3rd Floor, 60 Castle Street Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, ML3 6BU. Bank details will be made available on invoices.
- Turnaround time and Content Control

During the project, Made in Scotland will require the Client to provide any content that is not part of the service provided: text, images, movies and sound files
- Failure to deliver required website content
Made in Scotland is a small business, to remain efficient we must ensure that work we have programmed is carried out at the scheduled time. On occasions we may have to reject offers for other work and enquiries to ensure that your work is completed at the time arranged.
This is why we ask that you provide all the required information in advance. If you agree to provide us with the required information and subsequently fail to do within two weeks of project commencement we reserve the right to close the project and the balance remaining becomes payable immediately. Simply put, all the above condition says is do not give us the go ahead to start until you are ready to do so.
NOTE: Text content should be delivered as a Microsoft Word, email (or similar) document with the pages in the supplied document representing the content of the relevant pages on your website. These pages should have the same titles as the agreed website pages. Contact us if you need clarification on this.
Using the content management systems we integrate, you will be able to keep your content up to date your self. We do however provide training, on-going support, hosting and maintenance if required. Contact Us to find out more regarding this set of services.
Invoices will be provided by Made in Scotland upon completion but before publishing the live website. Invoices are normally sent via email; however, the Client may choose to receive hard copy invoices. Invoices are due upon receipt. Accounts that remain unpaid fifteen (15) days after the date of the invoice will be assessed a service charge in the amount of the higher of five percent (5%) or £30 of the total amount due every seven days.
Client agrees to reimburse Made in Scotland for any additional expenses necessary for the completion of the work. Examples would be purchase of special fonts, stock photography, printing services etc.
- Web Browsers
Made in Scotland makes every effort to ensure websites are designed to be viewed by the majority of visitors. Websites are designed to work with the most popular current browsers (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer 8 & 9, Google Chrome, etc.). Client agrees that Made in Scotland cannot guarantee correct functionality with all browser software across different operating systems.
Made in Scotland cannot accept responsibility for web pages which do not display acceptably in new versions of browsers released after the website has been designed and handed over to the Client. As such, Made in Scotland reserves the right to quote for any work involved in changing the website design or website code for it to work with updated browser software.
- Default and Termination
Accounts unpaid thirty (30) days after the date of invoice will be considered in default. If the Client in default maintains any information or files on Made in Scotland’s Web space, Made in Scotland will, at its discretion, remove all such material from its web space. Made in Scotland is not responsible for any loss of data incurred due to the removal of the service. Removal of such material does not relieve the Client of the obligation to pay any outstanding charges assessed to the Client’s account. Cheques returned for insufficient funds will be assessed a return charge of £25 and the Client’s account will immediately be considered to be in default until full payment is received. Clients with accounts in default agree to pay Made in Scotland reasonable expenses, including legal fees and costs for collection by third-party agencies, incurred by Made in Scotland in enforcing these Terms and Conditions.
