Due to the work involved payment is generally required in advance and we are unable to offer a refund of any monies to Clients in relation to this type of work.

Where applications or sites are developed on third party servers not recommended by Nuviu, the Client is expected to provide or seek any information, additional software, support or co-operation pertaining to the server required in order for the application to be correctly developed. Where large applications are to be developed, it is the Clients responsibility to provide a suitable testing environment which is identical to the final production environment. There is an immediate cessation of all current and future warranties by Nuviu where a Client has requested from Nuviu anything that results in passing the control of a website from Nuviu to the Client or a third party. Loss of control by Nuviu can also take place if FTP codes and or source codes have been passed to the Client. This loss of control can occur in other situations such as where the Client has requested placing the website onto a sever of their choice and not Nuviu’s server. Under any of these circumstances which results in loss of control by Nuviu, there shall be no future warranty and all undertakings of past warranties shall be revoked.

Nuviu reserves the right to request additional payment to cover any or all of such work and/or to refuse to undertake such work unless agreed in writing between the parties.
