I can't be liable to you or any third party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages arising out of the operation of or inability to operate this web site and any other web pages, even if you have advised us of the possibilities of such damages.
I am not liable for anything, what-so-ever, related to the security of your website.
Squarespace updates their templates/themes unannounced. They do not update users of their platform when these updates happen. This could impact your site in a number of ways. It could break the custom work you hired us for. I hope it never happens, but if it does, I am not responsible for this, and under no obligation fix it.
If any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
You guarantee to us that any elements of text, graphics, photos, audio, media, designs, trademarks, or other artwork that you provide us for inclusion in the web site are either owned by your good selfs, or that you have permission to use them. I am not liable for any copyright issues from materials provided.
When I receive your final payment, copyright is automatically assigned as follows:
You own the graphics and other visual elements that I create for you for this project. I will give you a copy of all files and you should store them really safely as I am not required to keep them or provide any native source files that I used in making them.
You also own text content, photographs and other data you provided, unless someone else owns them.
I 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. Any sharing done regarding the project would be in the realm of a coding, workflow or design technique that could help other developers. It would be polite and professional. Individuals, names, and other sensitive information will not be shared. Have questions about this? Please ask.

But where is all the horrible small print?
Here is it. Just like a parking ticket, you cannot transfer this contract to anyone else without our permission. This contract stays in place and need not be renewed. If for some reason one part of this contract becomes invalid or unenforceable, the remaining parts of it remain in place.
Although the language is simple, the intentions are serious and this contract is a legal document under exclusive jurisdiction of courts.
Everyone should sign above and keep a copy for their own records.
Written email agreement to the estimate and adding Administrator privileges to your website binds this agreement.
