Design Project Duration
Generally, a project completion date is identified for each project up front and, if a project specific contract is signed between your company and Branddspace Marketing Pty Ltd, the completion date is stipulated within it. In those cases, both parties have an obligation to ensure that they carry out their individual responsibilities in supplying content and effecting revisions in a timely and reliable manner to meet the project completion date agreed upon. If no specific project contract is enforced for a project, the terms and conditions stipulated in this agreement will apply. A typical project time frame usually does not exceed one calendar month.
In all scenarios, all projects undertaken by Branddspace Marketing Pty Ltd have a set payment completion cycle of 30 days after receipt of the initial deposit, all balances being due after the 30-day cycle, even if delays experienced have resulted in the non-completion of the project. Branddspace Marketing Pty Ltd would still be liable to complete the outstanding work as per the original scope detailed in the company invoice. An extension/grace period of 3 weeks will be extended to your company to complete the project, and no further charges for the 3-week extension will be charged. If, however, the project runs over the 3-week extension period, a flat fee of $80 per week will be charged for every week that the project lapses before completion.
Rights of Access for Website Construction
Your company agrees to allow Branddspace Marketing Pty Ltd all necessary access to computer systems and other locations, as required, in order to complete a website project and until all due funds are cleared, including the necessary read/write permissions, usernames and passwords.
The client also agrees to allow Branddspace Marketing Pty Ltd access to any computer systems, usernames and passwords required to remove data and/or sites for failure to comply with these Terms and Conditions.
Your company agrees to supply Branddspace Marketing Pty Ltd with all necessary materials, electronic, or otherwise, required to create and complete the project, and to supply them in a timely manner.

Branddspace Marketing Pty Ltd may request that your company change the type of hosting account used if that account is deemed by them to be unacceptable because of poor service, lack of bandwidth or in any other way insufficient to support the website.
