Graphic Design, Web Design and Web Development
Whilst we will endeavour to ensure that all of our work including designs, websites, scripts or programs are free of errors, Trigger Solutions Creative Ltd cannot accept responsibility for any losses incurred due to malfunction or any other reason. Whilst every care will be taken to ensure our systems are problem free and accurate, the ultimate responsibility lies with the client in ensuring that all software is functioning correctly before use.
The design elements, graphics, website, programming code and scripts remain the property of Trigger Solutions Creative Ltd until all outstanding invoices are paid in full.
Any graphics, scripts, software or websites (unless specifically agreed) created or produced by Trigger Solutions Creative Ltd remain the copyright of Trigger Solutions Creative Ltd and may only be reproduced or resold with the permission of Trigger Solutions Creative Ltd.

Any additional requests outside of the initial agreed brief will be quoted for and completed upon the client’s agreement.
The client agrees to make available as soon as is reasonably possible to Trigger Solutions Creative Ltd all of the necessary materials needed to complete the project within the original timescale including but not limited to text, images, hosting details, domain details and brand guidelines.
Trigger Solutions Creative Ltd will not be liable for costs incurred, compensation or loss of earnings due to any of the following:

• Work carried out on behalf of the client or the client’s employees
• Unavailability of the site
• Unavailability of its servers

Upon completion of a design or website the final balance of payment is due in accordance with our payment terms. There are no exceptions to this. If a client no longer wants the design or website they are still obliged to pay for it as the work has been completed and they have commissioned the work and paid a deposit.
Non payment may result in legal action if the matter cannot be settled. Once full payment has been received the work will be considered complete, however we will of course fix any bugs found that should have been completed in the original brief.
