Project Scope Parameters
During the initial conversation between you and Webtivity Designs, we draft notes to document our meetings and conversations. Our meetings and notes will be used to develop a Proposal. When you have approved the details of the Proposal you will be asked to sign an Agreement which will reference the Proposal and specify the terms of the project and our relationship. Upon signing of an Agreement, you will be asked to participate in an Initial Project Conference at the Webtivity office. This meeting may include the Webtivity Representative who worked with you during the Proposal process, the Designer or Team member(s) who will primarily be responsible for your project, and potentially other parties who have responsibilities related to your project. Team members can travel to your office location for an additional fee. During the Initial Project Conference and prior to the initiation of the project, we will make every reasonable attempt to clarify any questions you may have. Should any item have been overlooked and not addressed in our Proposal, we may, at our discretion, complete these enhancements to the project scope during the website’s production at no additional charge. However, if after the Proposal has been approved, the total Project Amount agreed upon, and the Agreement signed, you decide to make additions, changes, enhancements or adjustments to the project scope, Webtivity Designs reserves the right to estimate the requested additions, changes, enhancements or adjustments and add to the total project amount. You will be asked to sign a Work Order to approve the additional charges. Webtivity Designs reserves the right to request a deposit or full payment on the requested additions, changes, enhancements or adjustments before the project can proceed.
During the production of your project, every reasonable attempt will be made to produce the work you have contracted Webtivity Designs to perform. With that in mind you will be asked throughout the process to provide feedback and approvals. Webtivity Designs may also request you cooperatively Beta test our work. Once you have offered your approval Webtivity Designs will continue through the next stages of development for your project. If you determine you would like changes to items you previously approved, Webtivity Designs reserves the right to charge for any and all extra time associated with making the requested changes.
The Proposal for your project may specify a set number of revisions allotted through the various stages of your project. This specific number of revisions has been accounted for when developing a price and timeline for your project. If you request additional revisions that what were allotted for any particular stage of your project, Webtivity Designs reserves the right to charge for any and all extra time associated with making the requested revisions.

This Timeline is developed for pricing purposes and assumes your full cooperation throughout the project and ability to supply content, feedback and/or approvals as requested and/or required. Upon the signing of the Agreement, a project start date and completion date will be mutually agreed upon. If project Timelines or Deadlines are delayed due to your inability to supply content, feedback and/or approvals in a timely fashion, Webtivity Designs reserves the right to place your project on hold until such time that an opening in the project schedule appears.
