Terms & Conditions of Service

Updated: 12 October 2021.

By purchasing services from Web Watchdog, via WebWatchdog.io, you agree to the following terms and conditions:

Web Watchdog is an online maintenance, security, support, design and development service exclusively for single-site WordPress installations. Services include but are not limited to, any and all services listed publicly on Web Watchdog for individual clients.

You are engaging Web Watchdog, as an independent contractor to perform work as described in the package(s) or service(s) you have purchased. In the event, access to your website is necessary, you hereby authorise Web Watchdog read and write access to all directories and files of your account with Web Watchdog or any other associated third-party hosting provider.

As part of our maintenance, security and support service, we install our propriety WordPress modules: “Web Watchdog Client” and “Web Watchdog Dash”.
(1) – Web Watchdog Client: This module allows us to remotely access your server CMS installation and update and secure all aspects of the setup.
(2) – Web Watchdog Dash: This module shows you that you are an active/inactive Web Watchdog subscriber and displays our contact details along with our operating terms.
It is the responsibility of all paying subscribers to ensure both modules (1), (2) are installed and active for the duration of an active subscription.
Web Watchdog waives all responsibility if either or both modules are removed or deactivated. 

Web Watchdog waives all responsibility and is not obliged to repair any issue caused by 3rd party (external) software or modules that are not approved prior to installing.
Active subscribers are required to write to us directly to cancel an active subscription, email: info@webwatchdog.io, or write to us via their “My Web Watchdog” control panel here: https://www.webwatchdog.io/my-webwatchdog/
Please refer to CANCELLATION & REFUNDS below for further details.

Web Watchdog does not assume any responsibility or liability for the content of the websites it manages maintains and/or hosts.

All prices and services appearing on this site are subject to change without notice. Once a client of Web Watchdog, you authorise Web Watchdog to charge the recurring payment method you submitted for all the invoices generated for the services rendered by Web Watchdog. In order to change your payment method, simply contact support prior to your payment due date.

Please note: A minimum Web Watchdog subscription of one year is required to qualify for these service discounts. Full payment will be required if the account is cancelled within the same calendar year.

All project payment terms are ⅓ up front deposit, ⅓ mid-way payment and final ⅓ prior to handover / go-live (or else stated on your estimate/invoice). All goods and services remain the ownership of Web Watchdog until payment has been received in full. Payment failure may result in cancellation of services. Early cancellation of annually-run services will incur the full payment of that service.

Cancellation of any monthly recurring services can occur at any time after your first calendar month (30 days) of service. Cancellation of all other products and services offered by Web Watchdog are available in full, prior to your next renewal date.  If for any reason you are not satisfied with any of the services and/or tasks implemented, Web Watchdog reserve the right to revert back all changes to the website’s original version state or previous backup instance, prior to taking out a service plan.

Web Watchdog reserves the right to refuse service to any individual, company, website, or blog that contain offensive, obscene, hateful, malicious content or any other reason.

Consequential Damages

We recommended administration access to be solely held by Web Watchdog. If a client requires full administration access, we request this be made in writing.  Once administration access is granted, the client assumes full responsibility for any actions, modifications, or damages caused directly or indirectly by themselves or any third party accessing the server through their credentials. The developer will not be held liable for any resulting issues or loss of data.

Except for the parties indemnity obligations, in no event will either party be liable or responsible to the other for any type of incidental, punitive, indirect or consequential damages, including, but not limited to, lost revenue, lost profits, replacement goods, loss of technology, rights or services, loss of data, or interruption or loss of use of service or equipment, even if advised of the possibility of such damages, whether arising under theory of contract, tort (including negligence), product liability, strict liability or otherwise.
