5. Failure to provide required website content:
To remain efficient, Upsway Marketing LLC must ensure that the work we have programmed is carried out at the scheduled time. On occasions, we may have to reject offers for other work and inquiries to ensure that your work is completed at the time arranged.
If your project involves Search Engine Optimization, we need the text content for your site in advance so that the SEO can be planned and completed efficiently. This is why we ask that you provide all the required information in advance. On any occasion, progress cannot be made with your website because we have not been given the information needed in the agreed time frame, and we are delayed. As a result, we reserve the right to impose a surcharge of up to 25%.
Suppose you agree to provide us with the required information and subsequently fail to do within one week of project commencement. In that case, we reserve the right to close the project, and the balance remaining becomes payable immediately. Simply put, all the above condition says is do not give us the go-ahead to start until you are ready to do so.
NOTE: Text content should be delivered vis Google Drive, email (or similar) document with the pages in the supplied document representing the content of the relevant pages on your website.
