4. Credits and Links
A link to Graphic Palette will appear in small type and graphical format at the bottom of the website.

If the client wants the link excluded, an agreement must be made between the client and Graphic Palette.
5. Project Delivery
After decisions on the screenshot and graphics have been made, I will upload the graphics and program to your website host. When basic payment, shipping and taxes have been configured and website is in working order, final payment is due. Afterwards I will continue working with you to complete the final tweaks, upload your products and to train you in the use of your website. There is no limit on training or support. It is available for the life of your website!
6. Website Support
You will receive e-mail and telephone support for life after your site has been completed by Graphic Palette. I am here to help you become familiar with your site and manage all aspects of your site. If you need help with time-consuming issues that are more complex than “basic website training,” or you need advanced modules or programs added to your website then an hourly or by-the-job fee will be charged. We will agree on all charges before the work begins...no surprise charges. =) The majority of our communication will be via e-mail or our support system...but rest assured I will check my e-mails promptly and reply in a timely matter to all client concerns and questions. I am also available to my clients by phone (via appointment).
