Terms & Conditions

  1. www.rickbaines.com is a site operated by RB Web Development (“we”, “us” and “our”).

  2. By placing an order through our website, email, phone or in person, you warrant that:

    2.1 You are legally capable of entering into binding contracts; and
    2.2 You are at least 18 years old
    2.3 If you are acting on behalf of a company or other business, you further warrant that you personally have the authority to bind that company or business on whose behalf you are placing an order.

  1. After placing an order, you will receive acknowledgement from us accepting your order and, if appropriate, letting you know that the Domain Name or Hosting Service you have purchased has been registered or activated (“Acceptance Confirmation”). Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy our Services and all orders are subject to acceptance by us. The contract between us (“Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Acceptance Confirmation. We may also decline your order for the Services for any reason, in which case we will tell you so.

    The Contract will relate only to those Services we have confirmed in the Acceptance Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Services which may have been part of your order until such Services have been confirmed in a separate Acceptance Confirmation.

  2. If you are buying as a consumer (i.e., not within the course of your business), ordinarily, the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 allow you to cancel the Contract at any time within seven (7) working days, beginning on the day after you received the Acceptance Confirmation. However, by placing your order for the Services, you agree to us starting supply of those Services before the end of the seven working day cancellation period referred to here. As such, you will not have the right to cancel the Contract under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000.

    This provision does not otherwise affect your statutory rights.

  1. Please remember that you must pay for your services on time. If you do not our system will automatically delete domain names, and disable web hosting accounts and add-ons the day after renewal is due. Please note that non-payment of hosting accounts does not constitute cancellation.

    Unless specified otherwise in payment terms, payment for website packages becomes due on the earlier of: 1) the date of website publication or 2) 3 months following commencement of work.

    We reserve the right to charge interest on overdue payments at a rate of 8% p.a. (per annum).

  2. Prices are liable to change at any time. We will notify you of a change in our prices at least thirty (30) days before the price increase comes into force. Any such price increase will not be effective until the Minimum Term expires. If you do not agree to such price changes, please cancel your Services. If you do not cancel you will be deemed to have accepted the new prices, and they will be charged to your account.

In the event of loss of or damage to your Material, you will not be given access to the server back-up we maintain pursuant to our archiving procedure.

    We will follow our archiving procedures for the data stored on our servers. In the event of any loss or damage to our servers, your sole and exclusive remedy will be for us to use reasonable commercial efforts to restore the data on our servers (including your Material) from the latest back-up we maintained in accordance with our archiving procedure.
