Last modified: 6 November 2019
It’s important to us that we meet you expectations and are very clear in our terms of service from the start and for the future.
The following Terms of Service (“Terms or TOS”) provide details of your legal rights and responsibilities when accessing and using our websites, content and services associated with the domains of www.boostdigitalgroup.co.uk (collectively the “Services”) provided by Boost Digital (“Boost Digital Group,” “us,”, “our” ). Boost Digital is the trade name of Boost Digital Group Limited.
By using and/or purchasing one or more Services from Boost Digital, you declare that you have read, understood and agree, without modification, to be bound by this TOS throughout the entire contract term or monthly rolling contract term. If you’re using the Services for an organization, you’re agreeing to this TOS on behalf of that organisation, and you represent and warrant that you can do so. References to “you”, “your” and similar terms are construed accordingly in this Agreement. You agree that we may automatically upgrade our Services and the Terms of Service at any time without notice.
Please read these Terms carefully before accessing or using our Services and contact us if you have any questions. By accessing or using any part of our Services, you agree to become bound by these Terms. If you don’t agree to all the terms in this TOS, you may not use or access our Services. The latest version of our TOS is always available here on the Boost Digital website.
Services refer to all services provided by Boost Digital under these TOS including, without limitation, any of our website design and build services, photography, hosting services, website migration services, domain name registration services, logo design, marketing services, technical and content support services, email provision services, third-party products and any other services which we provide.
The Services will be provided to you as configured for our standard customer. We might modify, update or upgrade the Services and/or add, remove or modify any software, functionality or configuration installed on or used by the Services at any time with or without prior notice. We will not be obliged to modify the Services to accommodate your use. To the maximum extent applicable under national law and without affecting your rights as a Consumer, the Services will be provided on “as-is basis”.
The third-party plugins/software we offer as part of the Services will be provided as-is and will be subject to availability and all warranty disclaimers and limitations of liability set out herein
We build WordPress websites using premium plugins that provide fully customisable themes and a drag and drop page builder, which are optimised for performance. We may use wireframes and/or static visual images to provide a look and feel in terms of colour, structure and font style. This is part of our design process.
You will be able to review our design work and provide feedback throughout the design process and if at any stage, you’re not happy with the direction our work is taking, you’ll pay us for the total amount of work we have completed to date charged at our hourly rate. The contract will then be cancelled.
When you upload content in the form of document and image attachments and text content, to any website designed and/or hosted by Boost Digital, you will continue to be the owner of that content.
We are not responsible for writing any new text content for your website. If the contract agreement includes support for content updates, then you will provide the content to us in the correct format that is required for your website. We are not responsible for the content, spelling, punctuation or grammar. Any photo’s you provide for your website need to be a high resolution digital format. Graphic files need to be in an editable, vector digital format.
You’re responsible for all content you and your users upload to any website designed and/or hosted by us. By using our Services, you confirm that you are legally allowed to use the content and will not do anything deemed illegal with the content and services. Also keep in mind that what you upload may be publicly viewable.
Any content that you provide, you give us permission to use it in ways necessary to provide, improve, promote and protect our services. For example, when uploading a photo, you give us the right to save it and display it on your site at your direction. We also may promote or feature your site, but you can opt out if you don’t want us to do that.
You guarantee that all text and imagery you provide are either owned by you, or you have permission to use them. We reserve the right to place a line at the bottom of your site establishing us as the web site designers and hosters as applicable. We also reserve the right to add to our website, a description and imagery about your website project, and link to your website from ours.
Third party services

We ensure that the experience of our website designs are responsive within the desktop browser and on devices with different screen sizes, such as laptops, tables and smartphones.
30 day warranty
For thirty days after your site has gone live we’ll carry out any revisions and fixes free of charge, as long as they are within scope of the original requirements and agreement. After those thirty days, additional amends will be charged at our hourly rate, or will form part of the contract terms agreed for support content updates.
Fees and payments

To the maximum extent applicable under national law and without affecting your rights as a Consumer, all technical support is provided as-is and is subject to the disclaimers of warranties and limitation of liability set out in these TOS. While we use reasonable efforts to provide technical support in a timely and professional manner, we cannot guarantee the result you expect or that an issue might not occur again. We retain the right not to process your technical support request(s), if: (i) you violate these TOS; (ii) you are abusive towards our employees; (iii) the need for Technical Support Services is due to any modification or attempted modification of the Services made by you or any third party outside of Boost Digital’s control, or your failure or refusal to implement changes recommended by Boost Digital. We may refuse to perform any request that requires changes not compatible with the Services or not related to them or that might create a security risk or deteriorate their performance.
If you request technical support for issues outside the scope of our free technical support services, we may provide you with assistance at our own discretion, subject to availability and additional fees. We will inform you, and receive your consent, prior to charging you for technical support. Fees for additional technical support must be paid in advance.
