By incorporating any third party services or products into their web site, the client also agrees to abide by that company's terms & conditions.
Charges for services to be provided by MCM Net Limited are defined in the initial quotation that the Client receives. All services either require full payment in advance or a payment of fifty (50) percent of the project quotation total in advance before the work is commenced. Any remaining fees will be due upon completion of the work, and prior to the work being set live. Payment for services is due by cheque or BACS.
3. Client Review
MCM Net Limited will provide the Client with an opportunity to review the appearance and content of the project during all stages of the design and on completion. At the completion of the project, such materials will be deemed to be accepted and approved unless the Client notifies MCM Net Limited otherwise within ten (10) days of the date the materials are made available to the Client.
4. Intellectual Property Rights
Upon final balancing payment of the contract, the Client is assigned full ownership rights to their project. The Client understands that while they own the work, any elements within their project that hold existing copyrights are not transferred to the Client. Examples include but are not limited to; third party software and scripts, software and scripts designed and copyrighted by MCM Net Limited, and third party photographs, graphics and other multimedia such as video and audio. In these cases, the copyright to any of these elements is not transferred to the Client, but remains the property and copyright of their respective owners.
Upon transfer of the project to the web server (putting the work live), and subsequent transfer of ownership of content rights, the Client accepts full responsibility for the whole content of the project, and any grievances, arising as result of this content, either in the United Kingdom, or any other countries, will be the sole responsibility of the client.

Invoices will be provided by MCM Net Limited upon commencement and completion of the work, or as agreed, for Web Design, Game Design and any associated services. Invoices are due upon receipt.
Accounts unpaid thirty (30) days after the date of invoice will be considered in default.

MCM Net Limited is not responsible for any loss of data incurred due to the removal of the service. Removal of such material does not relieve the Client of the obligation to pay any outstanding charges assessed to the Client's account.
