Web Design Service Terms

Thes Web Design Service Terms, or WST, is a contract between you and BRIZZO (BRIZZO, we, us, or our). All clients of BRIZZO agree to abide by these terms. All clients of BRIZZO also warrant that they are at least 18 years of age, and that they have the right and authority to bind themselves, or the company that they represent, to the terms of this Web Design Service Agreement (WST).

1. Service

BRIZZO provides web design and a NO-INVESTMENT web design for eligible businesses. Instead of a paid web design or web development service the website will be built for free and rented out to you. A setup fee may apply.
You agree to post the credentials (link in orange) “Web Design by ANAXO”, “Web Design by BRIZZO ” or “Web Design and Web Hosting by BRIZZO” on every page.

2. Hosting

The NO-INVESTMENT plan requires a BRIZZO hosting plan. After the contract is paid in full, you can move your WordPress website to a different hosting anytime, see 8. Termination. During the lease term you agree to refrain from any attempts to move your website away from BRIZZO. Please be aware that BRIZZO hosting does not provide cPanel access. NO-INVESTMENT Websites on BRIZZO are usually built on WordPress or Magento. You will not have administrator access during the term of the lease agreement and you are not allowed to change the website in anyway other than with your granted Editor access for content management, i.e. change of headlines, text and images. Any further changes and development including but not limited to themes, plugins, payment gateways, WooCommerce changes and any other tweaking to the structure have to go through our ticket system. These changes are not included in the NO-INVESTMENT plan, but you will receive special prices, priority treatment and a cost estimation upfront.
