Hosting & Maintenance/Care Package
I’m not only well versed in website development and security, I've built scores of websites using WordPress and am also familiar with local marketing and SEO. I understand and embrace technology and have been a professional graphic designer for over 35 years.
Over the past decade, I've helped many small businesses migrate sites to WordPress or create new sites from the ground up. Any of my current clients would be happy to give you a reference.
I’ve been a professional graphic designer since 1986 and have worked with hundreds of small businesses in increasing sales and profits. While I could keep my nose in the computer and just do design and coding, I’ve always felt compelled to offer suggestions to improve the WHOLE business. It’s paid off! My customers’ bottom line has always improved and I get free word-of-mouth advertising. If I think you're making a bad marketing decision I will always tell you (and you are free to ignore my advice, too).
This cost for this service is $ per month, for a minimum of months or as long as we are hosting and maintaining your account. Should you wish to pay annually, the annual price is $.
Changes and additions to your content are billed separately at $75 per hour.
Copyrights and Trademarks. Client represents to CDG and unconditionally guarantees that any elements of text, graphics, photos, designs, trademarks, or other artwork furnished to CDG for inclusion in web pages are owned by the client, or that the client has permission from the rightful owner to use each of these elements, and will hold harmless, protect, and defend CDG and its subcontractors from any claim or suit arising from the use of such elements furnished by the client.
Original art created specifically for client is considered "work for hire" and becomes the property of client (I’m generous that way!); royalty-free (stock) images used in the site content and design remain the property of their original owners and are licensed for use on this project only.
ADA Compliance. CDG uses themes that offer basic ADA compliance. Specialty features, such as animations, slide shows, and non-standard features may not meet all compliance standards. If you came to CDG with a site built by another designer, compliance has not been reviewed and is not part of this service.
Limitation of Liability. IN NO EVENT SHALL CDG BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR OTHER CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOST PROFITS AND DAMAGES RELATED TO CORRUPTION OR DELETION OF WEBSITE CONTENTS) ARISING OUT OF OR IN RELATION TO THIS AGREEMENT, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF CDG HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL CDG’S MAXIMUM LIABILITY EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY YOU TO CDG FOR THE SERVICES DURING THE PRIOR TWELVE (12) MONTHS. TO THE EXTENT APPLICABLE STATE LAW DOES NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, CDG' LIABILITY IS LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
Warrants and Representations. CDG is not a partner or in any way affiliated with the clients it designs, publishes, and hosts web pages or websites for, and CDG is not liable for any services or products sold or promoted.

Software. WordPress is an open-source application that is updated several times a year: this contract includes updating the software regularly. While we have faith that WordPress will be around for a long time, CDG makes no warranty as to the continued support or operation of this program.
Force Majeure. A Party shall not be deemed in default of this Agreement, nor shall it hold the other Party responsible for, any cessation, interruption or delay in the performance of its obligations (excluding payment obligations) due to earthquake, flood, fire, storm, natural disaster, act of God, war, terrorism, armed conflict, labor strike, lockout, boycott or other similar events beyond the reasonable control of the Party, provided that the Party relying upon this provision:

Confidentiality. All correspondence and documents provided will be treated as confidential between the client and CDG Marketing & Web Design, unless all parties involved have granted consent.
