After approval, every organisation will be sent a form to complete and they are required to provide at once all the information (text, images, videos, links) that would be needed for the site. We may not accept any additional information after this, except where corrections are to be made on the content of the site.
The framework for all the websites in the offer will be WordPress including the themes and plugins.

Where an organisation opt for a free SSL certificate, we will configure “Let’s Encrypt SSL” for the website.
Every approved website will be placed on the queue and attended to on “first-come-first-served” basis, as a result of limited personnel.
Every approved website may take about four weeks to complete. Where this is not feasible, the organisation will be contacted.
The delivery date of a website may change if there is a delay by the organisation, in supplying some contents needed for the site.

Where an organisation require a premium version of these plugins, the organisation will be responsible for the cost implication.
During the development stage, the website will be placed on “Coming Soon” while the organisation is given access to the back-end of the site to monitor the progress of the site design.
The websites will be registered with Google Search Console, Google Analytics and Google Webmaster, Norton WebSafe, Akismet, Jetpack, Google MyBusiness, Google Recaptcha for site optimization and security.
At the completion of the website, the organisation will be give the login details of all the assets used for the site and they would be required to change in as soon as possible. After the handing over of the login details, we will not be responsible for any security breach.
