I will always do my 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 happens if stuff goes wrong. In this contract you won't find complicated legal terms or large passages of unreadable text. I have no desire to trick you into agreeing to something that you might later regret. I do want what's best for the safety of both parties, now and in the future.
You are hiring me (NIKO CREATIVES d/b/a nikocreatives.com) located at 7826 Bucks Run Dr. Naples, Fl 34120 to [design and/or develop solutions for a Squarespace website] for the estimated total price as outlined in email correspondence. Written email agreement to the estimate, adding Administrator privileges to your website, or filling out the form below binds this agreement. Of course it's a little more complicated, but we'll get to that.
What do both parties agree to do?
As my customer/client, you have the power and ability to enter into this contract on behalf of your company or organization. You agree to provide me with everything that I need to complete the project including text, images and other information as and when I need it, and in the format that I ask for. You agree to review my work, provide feedback and sign-off approval in a timely manner too. Deadlines work two ways and you will also be bound by any dates that we set together. You also agree to stick to the payment schedule set out at the end of this contract.
I have the experience and ability to perform the services you need from N-C and I will carry them out in a professional and timely manner. Along the way I will endeavor to meet all the deadlines set but I can't be responsible for a missed launch date or a deadline if you have been late in supplying materials or have not approved or signed off our work on-time at any stage. On top of this I will also maintain the confidentiality of any information that you give us
Getting down to the nitty gritty
I will create designs for the look-and-feel, layout and functionality of your web site. This contract includes two main design plus the opportunity for you to make up to two rounds of revisions before sign-off. If you're not happy with the designs at this stage, you will pay N-C in full for all of the work that I have produced until that point and you may either cancel this contract or continue to commission N-C to make further design revisions at the hourly rate set out in our original estimate.

I'm more than happy to come to your place of business and take pictures. Any time spent creating this content, editing will be charged at [$30] per hour.
Changes and revisions
I know from plenty of experience that fixed-price contracts are rarely beneficial to you or me, as they often limit you to your first idea about how something should look, or how it might work. I don't want to limit either your options or your opportunities to change your mind.
The estimate/quotation prices at the beginning of this document are based on the number of hours that I estimate N-C needs to accomplish everything that you have told me you want to achieve. If you do want to change your mind, add extra pages or templates or even add new functionality after your two rounds of revisions, that won't be a problem. You will be charged the hourly rate set out in the estimate I gave you. Along the way I might ask you to put requests in writing so I can keep track of changes.
Squarespace is your web host. They manage the server your Website lives on, they may also manage your domain and email. Any support issues will be between you and Squarespace, or other service providers. I do offer maintenance packages that I will be happy to discuss with you and tailor it to you once the project is complete.
If you do require help with anything beyond the design and development of your site, I will be happy to help and will charge you [$30] per hour. Reports of how the time was spent and what was accomplished will be provided.

When I receive your final payment, copyright is automatically assigned as follows:
You own the graphics and other visual elements that N-C creates for you for this project. I will give you a copy of all files and you should store them really safely as I am not required to keep them or provide any native source files that N-C used in making them.
You also own text content, photographs and other data you provided, unless someone else owns them.
I love to show off my work and share what I have learned with other people, so N-C also reserves the right to display and link to your completed project as part of my portfolio and to write about the project on web sites, in magazine articles and in books about web design and development.
We are sure you understand how important it is as a small business that you pay the invoices that N-C sends you promptly.
