If greyZIP are given control of ad spend budget, payment must be received a minimum of 5 days prior to campaign ongoing renewal date. If payment is not received, your campaign will be suspended until all funds are received.
Ad spend varies, and although ad providers try to keep within limits, it is normal to see up to a 10% variation to daily ad spend, that may fluctuate occasionally above the agreed budget.
We accept payment through BACS using the details listed below:
The Customer will provide greyZIP Ltd with reasonable direct and remote access to its website, and shall provide such other reasonable assistance as greyZIP Ltd may request, including, but not limited to, providing source code and other statistical, diagnostic information and other relevant information required to enable greyZIP Ltd to comply with its obligations under this Agreement.
The Customer shall comply with directions and advice from greyZIP Ltd within a reasonable period.
The number of links reported for SEO is correct at the point at which the report is generated and quality controlled, whereupon it will be emailed to the Customer. greyZIP Ltd offers no guarantee for the length of time each link will remain live after the point at which it has been confirmed and reported on the Customer link report.
During the service period, the client will not exchange links with link farms, use spamming or “black hat” SEO techniques, or otherwise engage in harmful online activities that may cause their serviced website’s Google search engine ranking to drop. Client acknowledges that linking to “bad neighbourhoods” or receiving links from “link farms” can seriously damage all SEO efforts. GreyZIP Ltd does not assume liability for the Client’s choice to link to or obtain a link from any particular website without prior consultation.
GreyZIP Ltd must be granted the right to optimise our customer’s website. This can sometimes cause a slight visual impact but is normally not noticeable. We will work with our customers to ensure that the page is left intact and that only the most minimal of changes take place.
GreyZIP Ltd is not responsible for the Client overwriting greyZIP Ltd’s work to the Client’s website. (e.g., Client/webmaster uploading over work already provided/optimised). The Client will be charged an additional fee for re-constructing content.
We do not have the ability to offer a guarantee on the rank that our customers will receive. We also cannot calculate or even estimate the amount of increased traffic that will occur as a result of our optimisation services. However, if the majority of key phrases and organic traffic significantly declines for more than 6 months after optimisation, then greyZIP Ltd will offer our SEO customers free SEO services for 3 months or until the trend reverses.
GreyZIP Ltd shall be permitted to subcontract or outsource any of the Services or obligations under this Agreement.
If required, cancellation of your services must be requested through email only. We must be notified on receipt of your invoice that month. Notice of cancellation can only be accepted after your first month of service, and with 15 days notice.
The client must not make any changes to the campaigns put in place by greyZIP Ltd. If changes are made without our expressed written consent, your contract will be subject to termination, as we cannot be responsible for any changes that may occur to your results as an effect from this point forward.
The following provisions set out the entire liability of greyZIP Ltd (including any liability for the acts or omissions of its employees) to the Customer in respect of any breach of the Agreement and any representation, statement or tortious act or omission (including negligence) arising out of or in connection with the Agreement.
GreyZIP Ltd shall not be liable for any loss of profits, loss of business, depletion of goodwill or similar losses or for any special, indirect or consequential loss, costs, damages, charges or expenses howsoever arising; and greyZIP Ltd will not be liable for any links being removed by a third party.
If you receive any strange emails, phishing requests, or fake emails please report them immediately to (email@example.com) and do not respond to the email or open any attachments that are included.
We will never have a third party contact you by email or by phone unless this is a part of the original written agreement or has been agreed upon through email beforehand.
Please do not share any information relating to the costs or any of the processes that greyZIP Ltd uses, as this would break any written contract that has been put into place with greyZIP Ltd. The methods and tools that we use are trade secrets and are unique. These methods give us an advantage over our competition and thus are completely confidential and are not to be shared in part or in whole with any third party.
This includes providing access to PPC accounts. We request that only internal employees of the client are given access to these accounts alongside greyZIP Ltd. to protect trade secrets, methods, and strategies. Failure to comply can result in contract termination.
We try to rank your business the best we can, however, we are not in control of search engine’s final decisions, and as such our services do not guarantee an increase in customer visits to your website or to sales, or other ranking metrics.
The client must take responsibility for the status of their website, and for any time the website is offline, unavailable, or broken. This may affect the performance of any strategy or campaign implemented by greyZIP Ltd.
In this Agreement each party shall keep in strict confidence all technical or commercial know-how, specifications, inventions, processes or initiatives which are of a confidential nature and have been disclosed by one party to the other.
Each party shall restrict disclosure of such confidential material to such of its employees as need to know the same for the purpose of discharging its obligations under the Agreement and shall ensure that such employees are subject to corresponding obligations of confidentiality.
This condition shall survive termination of the Agreement, however caused.
The Customer hereby agrees that greyZIP Ltd may refer to the Customer, by company or trading name, and to the existence of this Agreement in any marketing or promotional materials.
