Terms & Conditions
AppTheBusiness Limited (the company) provides the following products and services.
- Logo Design

- Smartphone App
- WordPress Plugins
Payment terms for each require the full set up charge to be paid prior to work starting. For the Website and the SmartPhone App, there is a monthly subscription charge that is payable by direct debit and will start on completion of the website and/or app. The definition of completion refers to the website being live and the app being available for download in the relevant app stores. The app is built so that it can run on the latest iOS and Android devices, however, approval for the Apple and Google Play App Store is solely at the discretion of the respective stores and we cannot guarantee that the app will be approved or subsequently removed due to any store policy changes.
The monthly fee for the website and the Smartphone app is to provide all content updates in terms of tax information and calculators as well as ongoing support for fixes upgrades and updates regarding latest WordPress and iOS & Android platforms. The monthly fee also covers any change requests in terms of app features (within scope of the platform) and website designs (within scope of the agreed web template). If there are changes requested that are beyond the scope of the agreed web template or app platform, then a fee will be agreed in advance for approval before any work will commence.
The monthly fee is for a minimum of 12 months (the initial period). Once the initial period is complete, the fee will move to a rolling 30 day contract. In the event of deciding to stop payment for the service, you agree to pay the full 12 months subscription if in the initial period. After the initial period, cancellation can be made with two month prior written notice. In the very rare situation in which we increase fees, you will be notified 90 days prior from us in writing. On cancellation, the hosting and access of the website will be removed and in terms of the SmartPhone app, this will be removed from the App stores, no longer available for download; however it will remain on previously downloaded phones, but with no longer being supported for updates and upgrades.
All content produced within the SmartPhone app is provided by the company and is copyright and cannot be taken without the prior written permission from the company. In the event content is created by the customer, this remains the property of the customer.
With the website developments, all themes and plugins provided or purchased by AppTheBusiness cannot be used without permission or resold.
Should a client purchase any service through an offer, via AppTheBusiness or one of our partners, the following conditions apply. The client is required to provide the content relating to their company, logo assets for the design, and other requirements dependent on the template chosen within a period of two weeks. Once the requirements are submitted by the client in full, a first draft of the app or website (as applicable) will be produced and shared with the client; the client will need to respond within 5 business days with their approval to publish or with feedback, if any. If there are any changes, in line with the offer terms, a revision will be shared and the client will have to provide approval or any final feedback within 5 business days. The above two rounds of edits are the maximum allowed. If no feedback is provided within the first or second of the above deadlines or if in anyway the client does not provide a final acceptance of the app or website within such deadlines, any further work on the design or development will cease, the project closed, and the benefit will be considered as redeemed and no funds will be available.
The Logo Creation service includes 5 draft designs, based on the information provided by the client. Changes and iterations can be made following feedback on the designs. Revisions are limited to 4 iterations. After the final revision has been provided, further designs can be requested at an additional fee.
All logos are copyright of AppTheBusiness and only the final logo chosen, once payment has been received, is permitted to be used once the final logo pack has been sent.
The Logo Creation Service is £175 (excl. VAT) for the drafts and final design files, which are provided in JPEG, PNG, AI, EPS and SVG formats. Full payment is required before the design work can be scheduled and is non-refundable should a design not be selected.
The Logo Redraw service includes a duplicate of an existing logo without any changes made to the design. Once the redraw is approved by the client, it is provided in JPEG, PNG, AI, EPS and SVG formats. The Logo Redraw is £75 (excl. VAT) paid in advance and is non-refundable should the final files no longer be required. The cost of the Logo Redraw may be increased depending on the complexity of the original logo design and the number of design hours required to execute the Logo Redraw.
AppTheBusiness will not assume responsibility should a Trademark or Copyright infringement occur on any submissions of an existing design which has been redrawn as part of a Logo service.
