The contract for the chosen services or equipment and responsibility for the quality of the delivered services or equipment will be directly with the client unless otherwise stated.

The Frontcube website is governed by a separate agreement
Bugs will be fixed ‘free of charge’ for a period of six months from date of launch.
Frontcube can provide our clients with an exceptional hosting package. However, if you choose to host the site on another service, the following notes apply:
- The hosting service must be running php5 and Mysql5 as these are the development platform versions we currently employ
- It is preferable servers are Unix/Linux based running Apache server
- For reasons of both performance and security, some sites are not viable using standard ‘shared’ hosting packages
- We will need access to the server control panel and have full access to the DNS and name-server records plus SSH and FTP access. These details must be provided well in advance of any proposed launch date.
- It is also your responsibility to ensure the server can adequately handle the load the proposed website will place on it, with appropriate backups. We charge our standard daily rate plus VAT to move websites between hosts.
In the event of either party being in material or fundamental breach of any of the terms and conditions of business the other may forthwith terminate the contract if the breach is incapable of remedy, or if it is capable of remedy the aggrieved party shall serve on the other seven days notice requiring such a breach to be remedied and, if such a breach is not remedied within the seven day period the contract shall automatically terminate.
In the case of dispute both parties agreed to abide by the decision reached by an independent mediator. The cost of mediation will be borne by the party against whom the judgement is made, or shared if no or equal fault is found.
Payment for any work is still due up to and including the day that the breach is notified.
Computer data is backed up daily with a copy taken off site. Some data is held on our dedicated servers at a secure data centre in London which is regularly backed up offsite.
Frontcube offers its clients project management tools which are governed by a separate agreement.
Email and files are continuously checked for viruses but our responsibility is limited and governed by a separate agreement. Mail is also virus checked, cleaned and ‘spam’ removed by spamsoap.
