Terms & Condition

The following terms and conditions apply to all technology services and solutions provided by BizBox to the Client.

1. Acceptance

It is not necessary for any Client to have signed an acceptance of these terms and conditions for them to apply. If a Client accepts a quote then the Client will be deemed to have satisfied themselves as to the terms applying and have accepted these terms and conditions in full.

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.

2. Charges

Charges for services to be provided by BizBox are defined in the project quotation that the Client receives via e-mail. Quotations are valid for a period of 30 days. BizBox reserves the right to alter or decline to provide a quotation after the expiry of the 30 days.

Unless agreed otherwise with the Client, all technology services and solutions require an advance payment of a minimum of thirty-three (33) percent of the project quotation total before the work is supplied to the Client for review. A second charge of thirty-three (33) percent is required after the development stage, with the remaining thirty-three (33) percent of the project quotation total due upon completion of the work, prior to upload to the server or release of materials and services.

Payment for services is due by cheque or bank transfer. Cheques should be made payable to Compuville Systems and sent to Compuville Systems 11-1155 North Service Rd W Oakville ON L6M3E3. Bank details will be made available on invoices.

3. Payment

Invoices will be provided by BizBox upon completion of the project. 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 thirty (30) days after the date of the invoice will be assessed a service charge in the amount of the higher of one and one-half percent (10%) or $10 per month of the total amount due.

4. Additional Expenses

The client agrees to reimburse BizBox for any additional expenses necessary for the completion of the work. Examples would be the purchase of special fonts, stock photography, etc.

5. Web Browsers

BizBox 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.). The client agrees that BizBox cannot guarantee correct functionality with all browser software across different operating systems.

BizBox cannot accept responsibility for web pages that do not display acceptably in new versions of browsers released after the website has been designed and handed over to the Client. As such, BizBox 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.

6. Default

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 BizBox servers, BizBox will, at its discretion, remove all such material from its web space. BizBox 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 $50 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 BizBox reasonable expenses, including legal fees and costs for collection by third-party agencies, incurred by BizBox in enforcing these Terms and Conditions.

7. Termination

Termination of services by the Client must be requested in a written notice and will be effective on receipt of such notice. E-mail or telephone requests for termination of services will not be honored until and unless confirmed in writing. The Client will be invoiced for design work completed to the date of first notice of cancellation for payment in full within thirty (30) days.

8. Indemnity

All BizBox services may be used for lawful purposes only. You agree to indemnify and hold BizBox harmless from any claims resulting from your use of our service that damages you or any other party.

9. Standard Media Delivery

Unless otherwise specified in the project quotation, this Agreement assumes that any text will be provided by the Client in electronic format (ASCII text files delivered on digital disk or via e-mail or FTP) and that all photographs and other graphics will be provided physically in high-quality print suitable for scanning or electronically in .gif, .jpeg, .png or .tiff format. Although every reasonable attempt shall be made by BizBox to return to the Client any images or printed material provided for use in the creation of the Client’s website, such return cannot be guaranteed.

10. Design Credit

A link to BizBox will appear in either small type or by a small graphic at the bottom of the Client’s website. If a graphic is used, it will be designed to fit in with the overall site design. If a client requests that the design credit be removed, a nominal fee of 10% of the total development charges will be applied. When total development charges are less than $5000, a fixed fee of $500 will be applied. 

11. Domain Names

BizBox may purchase domain names on behalf of the Client. Payment and renewal of those domain names is the responsibility of the Client. The loss, cancellation, or otherwise of the domain brought about by non or late payment is not the responsibility of BizBox. The Client should keep a record of the due dates for payment to ensure that payment is received in good time.

12. General

These Terms and Conditions supersede all previous representations, understandings, or agreements. The Client’s signature below or payment of an advance fee constitutes agreement to and acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. Payment online is an acceptance of our terms and conditions.

13. Governing Law

This Agreement shall be governed by Canadian Laws.

14. Liability

BizBox hereby excludes itself, its Employees and or Agents from all and any liability from:

  • Loss or damage caused by any inaccuracy;
  • Loss or damage caused by omission;
  • Loss or damage caused by delay or error, whether the result of negligence or other cause in the production of the web site;

The entire liability of BizBox to the Client in respect of any claim whatsoever or breach of this Agreement, whether or not arising out of negligence, shall be limited to the charges paid for the Services under this Agreement in respect of which the breach has arisen.

15. Severability

In the event any one or more of the provisions of this Agreement shall be held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall be unimpaired and the Agreement shall not be void for this reason alone. Such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision shall be replaced by a mutually acceptable valid, legal, and enforceable provision, which comes closest to the intention of the parties underlying the invalid,
