These are the terms of our agreement together:
1. Authorization. The Client is engaging Wolf Media Plus, known as Developer, a sole proprietor, located at 1636 Sherman Avenue South Milwaukee, WI 53172, as an independent contractor for the specific purpose of developing and/or improving a web site. The Client hereby authorizes Developer to access the Client’s hosting account or create a hosting account for the client and authorizes the developer to create accounts for any other websites, programs, etc. which need to be accessed for this project. The Client also authorizes Developer to publicize their completed web site to Google.
2. You have the authority to enter into this contract on behalf of yourself, your company or your organization. You’ll give us everything we need to complete the project as and when and in the format we need it. You’ll review our work, provide feedback and approval in a timely manner too. Deadlines work two ways, so you’ll also be bound by dates we set together. You also agree to stick to the payment schedule set out at the end of this contract.
We have the experience and ability to do everything we’ve agreed with you and we’ll do it all in a professional and timely manner. We’ll endeavor to meet every deadline that’s set and on top of that we’ll maintain the confidentiality of everything you give us.
3. 30 Day Money Back Guarantee
If you are dissatisfied for any reason, you will receive a pro-rated refund if you cancel your paid services within 30 days of the activation of your account. The 30-day money-back guarantee does NOT apply to domain name registration, other domain name services, Fotolia Image credits, Real SEO services and for already redeemed credits. Once you register your domain name or apply your domain credit, it cannot be “returned” until the duration of the domain term has expired. However, I can assist you in transferring or pointing your domain to the host of your choice. The amount of your refund will be a pro-rated price of the design package which may include paid service purchased from hosting company minus domain name registration fee and overage charges, and minus the value of any redeemed credits. If the value of the credits redeemed exceeds the price of the paid service, then you will not receive a refund.
4. Browser testing no longer means attempting to make a website look the same in browsers of different capabilities or on devices with different size screens. It does mean ensuring that a person’s experience of a design should be appropriate to the capabilities of a browser or device.
We test our work in current versions of major desktop browsers including those made by Apple (Safari), Google (Chrome), Microsoft (Internet Explorer), Mozilla Firefox. We’ll also test to ensure Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 for Windows users get an appropriate, possibly different, experience. We won’t test in other older browsers.
Mobile browser testing: Due to the wide variety of brands and types of mobile devices, we only ensure that the website passes Google’s mobile friendly test found at this link: https://search.google.com/search-console/mobile-friendly
5. Hosting: We’re not a website hosting company so we don’t offer support for website hosting, email or other services relating to hosting. You may already have professional hosting and you agree to provide all log in information necessary for completion of the project. If you don’t have hosting, we may set up an account for you at one of our preferred hosting providers for one month. Client understands that these fees are renewable monthly or annually and will be informed of upcoming renewal by the host not Wolf Media Plus. Fees are also subject to change.
Security: Although the Developer makes every effort to provide secure Finished Product(s), due to the nature of rapidly advancing technology, the Developer can in no way guaranty that the Finished Product(s) will not be subject to security breaches. The Developer recommends the use of strong passwords and the observance of standard security practices. In order to minimize the chances of security violations, systems should be updated often. The Client is solely responsible for tracking software updates and backups.
6. Domains and Email: Domain names, DNS management and email are the responsibility of the Client. The Developer may give instructions as to pointing of domain but does not guarantee the proper function of the domain.
7. Additional Expenses. Client agrees to reimburse the Developer for any Client requested and approved expenses necessary for the completion of the project. Examples would be: Purchase of premium templates or plugins, Purchase of specific fonts at the Client’s request, Purchase of specific photography at the Client’s request. Purchase of specific software at the Client’s request, Purchase of other third-party applications.
8. Client Amends / Changes. Developer prides itself in providing excellent customer service. That is the spirit of our agreement and the spirit of the Developer’s business. To that end, we encourage input from the Client during the design process. The Developer understands, however, that Clients may request significant design changes to pages that have already been built to the Client’s specification. The fees set forth in this agreement do not include a provision for significant page modification or creation of additional pages in excess of our agreed page maximum. If significant page modification is requested after a page has been built to the Client’s specification, we must count it as an additional page.
Some examples of significant page modification at the request of the Client include:

Replacing more than 75% of the text to any given page at the Client’s request. Creating a new navigation structure or changing the link graphics at the Client’s request.
