We will always do our best to fulfill your needs and meet your goals, but sometimes it is best to have a few simple things written down so that we both know what is what, who should do what and what needs to happen to keep the project progressing smoothly. In this contract, you won't find complicated legal terms or large passages of unreadable text. We simply want to achieve what's mutually best for both parties, now and in the future.
In Short
"You, are hiring Freedom Virtual Solutions, LLC to design and develop a web site for the total price of $ as outlined in our correspondence. The agreed payment plan is at the end of the document."
"As our customer, you have the power and ability to enter into this contract on behalf of your company or organization. You agree to provide us with everything that we need to complete the project including text, images and other information as and when we need them, and in the format that we ask for.
You agree to review our work, provide feedback and sign-off approval in a timely manner. Deadlines work two ways and you will also be bound by any dates that we set together. You also agree to abide by the payment schedule set out at the end of this contract.
We have the experience and ability to perform the services you need from us and we will carry them out in a professional and timely manner. Along the way, we will endeavor to meet all the deadlines set. In the event of a delay caused by deferred feedback or collateral, we agree that the COMPANY is not accountable for a missed launch date."

Both parties agree to respect and keep each others’ trade practices, trademarks, proprietary information, and intellectual property confidential. Violation of this section voids this agreement without indemnity to the COMPANY.
"We will create designs for the look-and-feel, layout, and functionality of your web site. This contract includes one main design, one initial revision, and one final revision.
If you're not happy with the designs at this stage, you may continue to commission us to make further design revisions at the hourly rate set out in our original estimate. Please note that designs typically take 4 hours to execute."
"We will test all our markup and CSS in current versions of all major browsers including those made by Apple, Microsoft, Mozilla, and Google. We will also test to ensure that pages will display visually in a similar, albeit not necessarily an identical way, in Microsoft Edge for Windows.
We will not test these templates in old or abandoned browsers, for example, Microsoft Internet Explorer 5, 5.5,6, 7, and 8 for Windows or Mac, previous versions of Apple's Safari, Mozilla Firefox or Opera unless otherwise specified. If you need to show the same or similar visual design to visitors using these older browsers, we will charge you at the daily rate set out in our original estimate for any necessary additional code and its testing.
All sites we build are multi-platform responsive ( They display dynamically depending on the browser size of the device ). Your website will not display identically across different devices.
We warrant that all functionalities will exist across all tablets, smartphones, and PCs (with the exception of proprietary browsers on specific devices like the Blackberry)."
Other Content
If needed, all photographs you will supply us should be in digital format. If you choose to buy stock photographs we can suggest vendors of stock photography. If you choose to defer additional photo selection to us, we will be happy to do so. Please note that this is an additional service charged at our hourly rate (up to 8 photos). We provide up to 15 premium stock photos that we can use for your website.
Changes And Revisions
The estimate/quotation prices at the beginning of this document are based on the number of hours that we estimate we'll need to accomplish everything that we have agreed on. If you do want to change your mind, add extra pages or templates or even add new functionality, that won't be a problem. You will be charged the standard rates set out in the estimate we gave you, and changes will be implemented before the initial QA. Along the way, we might ask you to put requests in writing so we can keep track of changes.
