Web design and hosting from XYZWeb copyright

XYZWeb designs and hosts websites for small communities, small companies, sole traders and creative people: artists, photographers, musicians, poets and writers.

We can provide opportunities for our clients to update their website themselves. Client control is provided by installing a content management system (CMS) this lowers the running costs for the client and enables alterations and additions to be made at the client's convenience.

Photographic and video services for your web site

Photos are a very important part of a website's design, for an artist they are essential. Photos and images also help the Internet user understand what the client is offering, whether that is goods for sale, services or information. Photos also add interest to a website. We can provide photos either from stock photo libraries or taken by ourselves. We can also process client's photos so as to ensure they fit on a webpage and are of optimum quality. We can also provide video film and sound recording.

Copyright notice and TOS for clients

You guarantee to us that any elements of text, graphics, photos, designs, trademarks, or other artwork that you provide us for inclusion in the web site are either owned by your good selves, or that you have permission to use them.

When we receive your final payment, copyright is automatically assigned as follows:

You own the graphics and other visual elements that we create for you for this project. If we have used stock photos then we would have paid to do so on your behalf and that material may not be used on another website.

You also own text content, photographs and other data you provided, unless someone else owns them. We own the XHTML, HTML markup, CSS and other code and we license it to you for use on only this project. We host the website for you and this is a condition of continuing to use our code. We charge at cost for hosting plus a small amount to cover routine maintenance.

We love to show off our work and share what we have learned with other people, so we also reserve the right to display and link to your completed project as part of our portfolio and to write about the project on web sites, in magazine articles and in books about web design.

More and more people are now using the Internet to search for local services, whilst Yellow Pages is a less attractive service. Some people use Yellow Pages to search for services and then go to the advertisers website (those that have one) to get further information. A similar argument can be used to compare other paper based advertising options. Newspaper ads are not cheap and magazine ads are even more expensive. XYZWeb websites are advert free.

We offer a local service to those clients who live or work near to the city of Bath. However, a combination of telephone and email can provide all the contact that is necessary, even for international clients! And using email and the telephone does reduce costs.

We offer a complete package: web design, hosting, email and maintenance as standard, this simplifies the management of your website and reduces costs.
