Service agreement

This Services Agreement (the "Agreement") contains the complete terms and conditions which govern your subscription to Website Design, Development, and other Internet-related services provided by Genzis IT Services Company (the "Services"). As used in this Agreement, "Genzis" means Genzis, the company, and "Client", "you", or "your" means you. You acknowledge that you have read the Agreement, and you agree to its terms and conditions and all policies posted on the Genzis site. As referred to in this Agreement, "Site" refers to a World Wide Web site, and "Genzis site" refers to the Site located at the URL or any other successor Sites owned or maintained by Genzis.

The following terms and conditions apply to all website development/design services provided by Genzis to the Client.


It is not necessary for any Client to have signed an acceptance of these terms and conditions for them to apply. If a Client accepts a quote then the Client will be deemed to have satisfied themselves as to the terms applying and have accepted these terms and conditions in full.

Please read these terms and conditions carefully. Any purchase or use of our services implies that you have read and accepted our terms and conditions.


Charges for services to be provided by Genzis are defined in the project quotation that the Client receives via e-mail or other means. Quotations are valid for a period of 15 days. Genzis reserves the right to alter or decline to provide a quotation after the expiry of the 15 days.

Unless agreed otherwise with the Client, all website design services require an advance payment of a minimum of fifty (50) percent of the project quotation total before the work is supplied to the Client for review. The remaining fifty (50) percent of the project quotation total is due upon completion of the work, prior to upload to the server or release of materials.

Payment for services is due by Mobile Money, Paypal, cheque or bank transfer. Cheques should be made payable to Genzis IT Services Company and sent to Genzis Bank details will be made available on invoices.

Extra Charges

For services not listed in the quotation and requested by the client, additional charges will be defined and resubmitted as a quote to the client and are subject to the same conditions stated in the charges section.

Maintenance Charges

All maintenance charges will be defined according to your needs and a special quotation will be shared with you via email or hard copy to your offices. All maintenance initiated by Genzis and not rquested by you is free of charge. You, therefore, agree to have genzis edit your website and make improvements without prior consultation with you as long as your website is hosted and managed by us.

Genzis Spaces

Genzis has developed a client dashboard for project follow-up and billing. By agreeing to these terms and conditions, you acknowledge a MYSPACE account will be created for your company.

Failure to provide required website content

Genzis is a small business, to remain efficient we must ensure that the work we have programmed is carried out at the scheduled time. On occasions, we may have to reject offers for other work and inquiries to ensure that your work is completed at the time arranged.

This is why we ask that you provide all the required information in advance. On any occasion where progress cannot be made with your website because we have not been given the required information in the agreed time frame, and we are delayed as result, we reserve the right to impose a surcharge.

If you agree to provide us with the required information and subsequently fail to do within two weeks of project commencement we reserve the right to close the project and the balance remaining becomes payable immediately.

Text content should be delivered as a Microsoft Word, email (or similar) document with the pages in the supplied document representing the content of the relevant pages on your website.


Invoices will be provided by Genzis upon completion but before publishing the live website. Invoices are normally sent via email; however, the Client may choose to receive hard copy invoices. Invoices are due upon receipt.

Additional Expenses

The client agrees to reimburse Genzis for any additional expenses necessary for the completion of the work. Examples would be the purchase of special fonts, stock photography, etc.

Web Browsers

Genzis makes every effort to ensure websites are designed to be viewed by the majority of visitors. Websites are designed to work with the most popular current browsers (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, etc.). Client agrees that Genzis cannot guarantee correct functionality with all browser software across different operating systems.

Genzis cannot accept responsibility for web pages that do not display acceptably in new versions of browsers released after the website has been designed and handed over to the Client. As such, Genzis reserves the right to quote for any work involved in changing the website design or website code for it to work with updated browser software.

Subsequently, Genzis and Genzis alone can access your website hosted code, files, DNS records, SSL settings, and any other related services including emails. No credentials will be shared unless specific request to upgrade the offering or move the website to the client’s own host provider.

Management and backup of the website are guaranteed by Genzis at a low annual fee defined in the client’s contract if the Website is at Genzis host provider. Otherwise, a different quotation will be defined for maintenance costs for external websites.
