We accept no liability in respect of the use by you of any domain name; any dispute between you and any other person must be resolved between the parties concerned in such dispute.

Should the client request transfer out of any domain name from Evolution Design Ltd's control, and then an administration fee or charge may be levied by our suppliers. No guarantee, warranty or liability can be given or accepted in respect of timescale or accuracy as this is reliant on third party involvement.
Payment and Services
Evolution Design Ltd will carry out work for clients in accordance to their instructions, as agreed between Evolution Design Ltd and the client.
A deposit of 25% of the agreed initial project cost is normally required with a letter or email communicating an authority to proceed from the client. Evolution Design Ltd will invoice the client on completion of the agreed work, or in stages of completion for projects lasting more than 28 days. The client then has a period of up to 7 working days to advise us of any nonconformity in any work.
Evolution Design Ltd will carry out, free of charge, minor modifications as suggested by clients, subject to the condition that the changes suggested by the client are not unreasonable and do not involve substantial deviation from the original contract between Evolution Design Ltd and the client and that the work has not already been proofed or printed. Any changes past that point may incur third party costs as well as further artwork charges.
While we endeavour to meet every deadline and do so in most case, non-delivery or non-performance of services by any third party shall not give the Client any right to delay any payment to Evolution Design Ltd or to make any claim whatsoever against Evolution Design Ltd.
Any additional services requested, at any time, will be charged at the current standard rates.
The Client agrees to make payment for the Services by payment of invoice within 28 days of the invoice date, unless agreed in writing. All payments shall be made by cheque or BACS. Payment is not accepted by credit or debit card. If payment is not made on the due date Evolution Design Ltd shall be entitled without limiting any other rights it may have, to charge interest on the outstanding amount (both before and after any judgment) at the rate of 5% above the Bank of England base rate from the due date until the outstanding amount is paid.
The Client hereby agrees fully to indemnify and keep indemnified and hold harmless Evolution Design Ltd, its employees and agents from and against any and all claims, costs, damages, losses or liability (whether civil or criminal) and expenses (including, but not limited to, legal fees) sustained or incurred by Evolution Design Ltd or any of its employees and agents directly or indirectly and any claim brought against us by a third party resulting from the provision of Services by us to you and or your use of the Services and the Server and in any jurisdiction as a result of:-

Evolution Design Ltd shall bear no liability for loss, damage or delay howsoever arising caused by circumstances outside its control.
Evolution Design Ltd relies on third party suppliers to provide uninterrupted Services and to the extent Services are reliant on third parties products and services, therefore Evolution Design Ltd makes no warranties or representations that any Service will be uninterrupted or error-free, due to the nature of the services being provided by means of computer and telecommunication systems.
If a problem occurs subsequent to launch due to the malfunction of any web page, form, script, or other component, or due to the failure or cessation of the web server or service on which the pages are stored, Evolution Design Ltd will make every reasonable endeavour to correct the problem. If the failure cannot be corrected within 2 hours of labour, the client will be liable to pay for any extra time/labour or other resource needed to correct the site. If the failure is due to our hosting companies failure then with the clients agreement we will try to arrange re-hosting of the web to an alternative web server but the client will need to bear the full cost of this at our prevailing hourly rate and the full cost of problems with the domain name and full cost of the new web hosting business to host the site for the client.
As the original domain name purchase and web hosting facility was arranged through a third party without any recourse to Evolution Design Ltd on behalf of the client then Evolution Design Ltd its employees consultants and agents in no event will be liable to the Client for any direct or indirect or consequential loss or damage whatever (for example but not limited to loss of business, loss of opportunity, loss of profits). No refund by Evolution Design Ltd will therefore be due to the Client for any unused portion at the time the third parties services gave problems or ceased.
