Uneek Projects provides non-tangible irrevocable goods. Therefore, we do not issue refunds once a proposal or product is provided or hourly-based work is completed or started. If you have confirmed or approved the acceptance of a design, we cannot provide a refund. Your approval represents an acceptance of the final project and serves as an implicit statement of satisfaction.
Website development projects usually comprise two components: Web Design and Web Development. Web design includes the initial website mock-up and layout design. Web development includes CMS/Blog implementation, e-commerce solution, and custom PHP/ASP/JSP coding.
1. We are not responsible for site up time (responsibility of hosting company).

Purchaser has distributed the product on peer to peer (P2P) or illegal content (Warez) websites.
Purchaser has attempted a chargeback and failed.
*Intellectual property (IP) is a term referring to a number of distinct types of creations of the mind for which a set of exclusive rights are recognized—and the corresponding fields of law. Under intellectual property law, owners are granted certain exclusive rights to a variety of intangible assets, such as musical, literary, and artistic works; discoveries and inventions; and words, phrases, symbols, and designs.
Deposits for website development work are required to begin design and/or coding work and are therefore non-refundable. In the event that the project is terminated, the deposit is not refundable, but the balance is cancelled.
Requests to cancel accounts or the termination of your payment plan with us will result in the immediate deactivation of your account. In a case where a client has ceased a billing cycle, the account will be deactivated upon investigation.
No refund under any condition shall be processed if a customer fails to comply with our “Terms and Conditions”.
Accounts that are either cancelled, deactivated, and/or have services suspended for violation of our terms of service, or accounts that exceed their disk or bandwidth usage amount do not qualify for any refunds.
We do not issue refunds once the design work is completed. As a customer you are responsible for understanding this upon purchasing any service from us.
However, we realize that exceptional circumstance can take place with regard to the character of the products and services we supply. Therefore, we will do our best to work with you to resolve any unforeseen circumstances or issues.
Please note that third party items purchased in the design, development and deployment of your website and or web-related service work is not refundable. These items include, but are not limited to: domain names, stock photography and software plug-ins. We recommend contacting us for assistance if you experience any issues receiving or downloading our products.
Payments for web development & web design projects are made to us in increments as a courtesy to the client. Once a payment or deposit is made it is non-refundable. If a project is cancelled or postponed all monies paid are retained by Uneek Projects and if applicable, a fee for all work completed beyond what was already paid for shall be paid by the client.
If a website development project is cancelled after entering the development stage, any payments are non-refundable.
Payments made towards Search Engine Optimization, Digital Marketing, Website Hosting and/ or other subscription based services will be non-refundable.
If you purchased a “Special Offer” that does not constitute one of our standard packages as advertised.
If the company for whom the design was performed should close, change its name, or undergo other alterations rendering a design ill fitting, we cannot issue a refund.
Once you have taken final delivery our liability is limited to the payment received from you against the project. In case you cancel a project we will have the right to sell or use the designs shown to you as we may deem fit.
Should the Customer receive a refund, Customer acknowledges that it will have no right (express or implied) to use any Basic concept or other work product, content, or media, nor any ownership interest in or to the same. The Copyright remains with us and you are NOT allowed to use our designs even as design reference.
Because Uneek Projects offers non-tangible irrevocable goods and services we do not issue refunds once the order has been paid and approved. This includes any deposits paid.
Our policy includes the following services but not limited to
Web Development – includes fixes and new programming
Plugin Development – includes fixes and new programming
Plugin Installation – third party purchase – if you are having issues then you will need to contact the third party developer to resolve any issues
SSL Purchases and Installation
Any other digital service or product not specifically mentioned above that is not a physical product.
Client will pay Uneek Projects a cancellation fee of 20% + a monthly 5% compounded interest fee if the project or any portion of the project scope is cancelled.
Note: Uneek Projects has the right to change payment terms if necessary at any stage during the project. Please review our terms and conditions periodically.
Web Development and Consulting Services
In consideration of the time involved by Uneek Projects, if at any point you wish to cancel a web development or consulting service in process, all paid fees up to that point in the process are non-refundable. The non-refundable policy also includes all retainer or deposit fees paid, even if the project has not yet started. Payment of retainer deposits by Clients signifies official commitment to the project. Uneek Projects will rely upon that commitment for future scheduling of staff, quotation of resource availability to other prospective clients, and may defer other profitable opportunities in order to staff a committed project. It is impossible to quantify the potential opportunity loss caused by a project cancellation. Therefore no refunds will be issued for any web development services of any kind (including but not limited to web development, security services, web design, consulting, custom software development, site maintenance, hacked site recovery, etc.).
We will specify progress payment milestones in your project quote and/or contract. Upon notification of cancellation by a Client, we will cease all work and issue any final milestone invoices due, if any. Clients are not entitled, and surrender all rights, to any additional work performed by Uneek Projects, including but not limited to site changes, enhancements or updates made in our Development site or any in-process work performed since the last paid milestone. If a Client wishes to obtain the rights to the most current work in process at the time of cancellation, all outstanding invoices, including the final invoice issued after cancellation notification, must be paid in full.
When adding new text and/or content to a page the client is responsible for providing all text (in digital format) and images/photos. Unused hours do not roll over to subsequent months. No refunds are provided for unused hours. There are absolutely no refunds for any fees related to website maintenance services. An administrative fee of £25 will be charged to the clients account for any late payments or declined credit card charges. Uneek Projects may terminate this agreement at anytime with 7 days written/emailed notice to the client.
Uneek Projects will provide the Client with an opportunity to review the appearance and content of the website during the design phase and once the overall website development is completed. At the completion of the project, such materials will be deemed to be accepted and approved unless the Client notifies Uneek Projects otherwise within seven (7) days of the date the materials are made available to the Client.
Turnaround Time and Content Control
Uneek Projects will install and publicly post or supply the Client's website by the date specified in the project proposal, or at date agreed with the Client upon Uneek Projects receiving initial payment, unless a delay is specifically requested by the Client and agreed by Uneek Projects.
In return, the Client agrees to delegate a single individual as a primary contact to aid Uneek Projects with progressing the commission in a satisfactory and expedient manner. During the project, Uneek Projects will require the Client to provide website content; text, images, movies and sound files.
We make every effort to launch your site onto your domain name on the date you request when approving your website but we do not offer a guarantee. If we are not able to launch on the day requested we will inform you prior to the date and arrange an alternative launch date.
Due to the reduction in staffing levels around Christmas and New Year we do not deliver or launch sites in the Christmas/New Year period.
Failure to Provide Required Website Content
Uneek Projects is a small business, to remain efficient we must ensure that work we have programmed is carried out at the scheduled time. On occasions we may have to reject offers for other work and enquiries 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 of up to 25%. If your project involves Search Engine Optimisation we need the text content for your site in advance so that the SEO can be planned and completed efficiently.
If you agree to provide us with the required information and subsequently fail to do within one week of project commencement we reserve the right to close the project and the balance remaining becomes payable immediately. Simply put, all the above conditions say is do not give us the go ahead to start until you are ready to do so.
Standard Media Delivery
Unless otherwise specified in the project quotation, this Agreement assumes that any text will be provided by the Client in electronic format (ASCII text files delivered on floppy disk or via e-mail or FTP) and that all photographs and other graphics will be provided physically in high quality print suitable for scanning or electronically in .gif, .jpeg, .png or .tiff format. Although every reasonable attempt shall be made by Uneek Projects to return to the Client any images or printed material provided for use in creation of the Client's website, such return cannot be guaranteed.
NOTE: 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. These pages should have the same titles as the agreed website pages. For shop products organisation is key. An excel file with colours, sizes, SKU’s, pricing, descriptions etc is preferable.
Contact us if you need clarification on this.
The majority of services as supplied by Uneek Projects are dispatched electronically by email and shall be deemed as having been delivered when the email has been opened by the client.
Uneek Projects reserves the right to substitute conventional delivery methods without notice or penalty should electronic dispatch prove inconvenient; in which case delivery by Uneek Projects will be deemed to have taken place when the materials are handed to the custody of the Client at his premises or to a deputed messenger or courier when posted. Uneek Projects will be entitled to charge the Client for any expenses of delivery other than normal postage charges.
Please note that if a proposal is accepted and a portion paid (generally 50% of the total proposed amount), you are bound by this Refund Policy and agree to and understand its terms and conditions.
Editing, Photography and Video
Payments for editing, photography, and video projects are non-refundable. Once a payment or deposit is made it is non-refundable. If a project is cancelled or postponed all monies paid are retained by Lead as Love and if applicable, a fee for all work completed beyond what was already paid for shall be paid by the client.
Invoices will be provided by Uneek Projects 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. Accounts that remain unpaid thirty (30) days after the date of the invoice will be assessed a service charge in the amount of the higher of one and one-half percent (1.5%) or £15 per month of the total amount due.
Uneek Projects 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 Uneek Projects cannot guarantee correct functionality with all browser software across different operating systems.
Uneek Projects cannot accept responsibility for web pages which do not display acceptably in new versions of browsers released after the website have been designed and handed over to the Client. As such, Uneek Projects 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.
Hosting and Maintenance Contract Cancellation
The Company is not responsible for data integrity on hosting accounts terminated for non-payment, refunds or cancellations.
Cancellation of a hosting or maintenance account requires advance notice. Shared hosting accounts (Personal, Business, Corporate, and E-Commerce) and Maintenance Accounts require 48 hour notice prior to the first (1st) day of the next billing cycle.
All overcharges or billing disputes must be reported within 30 days of the time the dispute occurred. If you dispute a charge to your credit card issuer or payment provider (chargeback) that, in Uneek Projects sole discretion is a valid charge under the provisions of the TOS and/or AUP, you agree to pay Uneek Projects an “Administrative Fee” of not less than £75 and not more than £200.
Because web hosting services are provided on a monthly basis, the client will be responsible for service fees already paid regardless of when the client provides notice of termination. Thus, for example, if Client provides notice to terminate prior to the end of the billing cycle, the remaining balance for that month will not be pro-rated or refunded. If Client has prepaid for services six (6) or twelve (12) months in advance, the client agrees that no refunds will be issued for any unused portion of the services regardless of when the client cancels the services. Therefore, if the client’s account is cancelled at any point during the pre-paid contract term, Client will not be entitled to a pro-rated refund.
All accounts are cancelled as soon as the client submits the account cancellation request, at which time all remaining files in Client’s account will be deleted. Client is responsible to remove all personal files from the server prior to the cancellation request. Uneek Projects will not be held responsible for any files deleted on that day.
Client agrees to reimburse Uneek Projects for any additional expenses necessary for the completion of the work. Examples would be purchase of special fonts, stock photography etc.
No refunds will be issued if abuse of our terms of service or acceptable use policy forces Uneek Projects to suspend or terminate your services prematurely.
If a customer contravenes Uneek Projects terms of service, a refund will not be issued in the event of a cancellation.
Payments for account add-ons (SSL certificate, static IP etc) are non-refundable as they are included during the life of the hosting plan, web development period.
Retainers are also non-refundable for clients who fail to contact us or respond to our communications for a period of 30 days, and we reserve the right to consider a project abandoned by client and cancel the project after 30 days of non-communication. Email is considered a good-faith effort to communicate.
Clients who abandon their projects via non-communication can reinstate them by paying a reinstatement fee of no less than £100. We are not an escrow company and cannot be expected to “hold a credit on file” for disappearing clients for a number of years.
Acceptable Use Policy
Our service may not be used for:
Anything associated with illegal or hateful activities
Backup for your local hard drive
All scripts must be approved before implementation.
MATTS form-mail script may not be used.
While using our service you must agree to act in accordance with all general legal guidelines, including but not limited to copyright/trademark laws.
We reserve the right to immediately cancel service without notice if you are found to be in violation of any of our policies.
Unless otherwise noted, all software is licensed under a GNU GPLv2 license.
A link to Uneek Projects may appear in either small type or by a small graphic at the bottom of the Client's website. If a graphic is used, it will be designed to fit in with the overall site design. If a client requests that the design credit be removed, a nominal fee of 10% of the total development charges will be applied. When total development charges are less than £5000, a fixed fee of £500 will be applied. The Client also agrees that the website developed for the Client may be presented in Uneek Projects portfolio.
If the Client's website is to be installed on a third-party server, Uneek Projects must be granted temporary read/write access to the Client's storage directories which must be accessible via FTP. Depending on the specific nature of the project, other resources might also need to be configured on the server.
Uneek Projects cannot accept responsibility for any alterations caused by a third party occurring to the Client's pages once installed. Such alterations include, but are not limited to additions, modifications or deletions.
We cannot guarantee 100% server uptime for hosting, or that our products are 100% free of defects and will survive third-party upgrades to platforms like WordPress, Thesis, and any plug-ins used. What we do offer is passionate customer service and the promise to make sure your website runs properly at the time it is launched, on the existing software, on Windows and Mac platforms.
We also do not guarantee that you will receive business from your website or that it will achieve first page SERP ranking.
Unfortunately, the days of “if you build it, they will come” are over, and online marketing becomes more competitive daily. We create a clean, fast-running, visually appealing design on an easy to use content management system, with the current best practices in SEO baked in – including custom metadata fields for each pre-launch page and local SEO signals like schema.org for your contact information, and we provide advice on how to take that site and run with it in terms of publishing content, marketing it, and the like.
A website is a tool for marketing, not a magic wand. Each business is also a living organism of its own, dependent upon its owner, the viability of the business itself, and the vagaries of the economy. Simply put – your mileage may vary.
Troubleshooting or Customer Support Procedure
Contact our support team first by using our contact form. We will then troubleshoot the issue and inform you if the warranty is compliant or not.
If your website isn't showing up for you (but other web sites are, contact the hosting company FIRST to see if there's an issue with their server).
All projects (unless specifically stated otherwise), carry an implied, industry-standard 30-Day warranty against defects due to programming logic or ‘bugs'.
Warranty does not include any use of the designed/develop pages outside of the specified browsers (usually Internet Explorer and Firefox, current as of 2017). Any changes by the client to any web page on client's web site will negate our warranty as we are no longer responsible for that code or content. Third party plugins and major updates are not included although we will investigate the problem/fault free of charge.
Spelling Errors, Broken Links
Any spelling errors, broken links or unaligned text, images or videos on a web page will be fixed at NO COST excluding the following reasons:
1. The content does not differ from what the client originally supplied.
2. The client not renamed or moved files or pages, thereby causing breaks with links to the originally named files.
3. A third party plugin is at fault.
4. A major coding update has been initiated.
Uneek Projects may purchase domain names on behalf of the Client. Payment and renewal of those domain names is the responsibility of the Client. The loss, cancellation or otherwise of the domain brought about by non or late payment is not the responsibility of Uneek Projects. The Client should keep a record of the due dates for payment to ensure that payment is received in good time.
Accounts unpaid thirty (30) days after the date of invoice will be considered in default. If the Client in default maintains any information or files on Uneek Projects web space, Uneek Projects will, at its discretion, remove all such material from its web space. Uneek Projects is not responsible for any loss of data incurred due to the removal of the service. Removal of such material does not relieve the Client of the obligation to pay any outstanding charges assessed to the Client's account. Cheques returned for insufficient funds will be assessed a return charge of £25 and the Client's account will immediately be considered to be in default until full payment is received. Clients with accounts in default agree to pay Uneek Projects Limited reasonable expenses, including legal fees and costs for collection by third-party agencies, incurred by Uneek Projects Limited in enforcing these Terms and Conditions.
Termination of services by the Client must be requested 30 days in advance, in a written notice and will be effective on receipt of such notice. E-mail or telephone requests for termination of services will not be honoured until and unless confirmed in writing. The Client will be invoiced for design work completed to the date of first notice of cancellation for payment in full within thirty (30) days.
Termination requests placed through telephone, Skype or other modes of communication will not be honoured unless confirmed in writing.
Termination of Project
Uneek Projects holds the right to terminate a project, under any of the following scenarios, without any prior notice.
If the client fails to provide any information that is mandatory required for starting of a project such as the filled-in website building questionnaire, logo, colour scheme, design preferences, website content or any other information within 15 days of signing up for the project.
If the Client fails to responds to queries or fails to provide the information required for completing the development of the website, within 30 days of signing up for the project.
If the Client fails to share the domain access credentials and/ or hosting control panel details within 30 days of signing up for the project, if it is required for completing the website development and hosting process.
If it is found that the services or products offered by the Client through the website are illegal and violates the law of the land.

Our Legal Policy
When we design a website, we are the copyrighted owner of the design. Our customers have the right to use that design for their own purposes.
The customer, however does not have the right to sell or give the design to anyone else. We retain all rights to the design.

Terms & Conditions (Specific to Leaflet Distribution)
All material is accepted for distribution or printing and distribution subject only to the following terms and conditions.
In so far as the context admits these terms and conditions are deemed to be incorporated into any agreement entered into with Uneek Projects for the provision of door to door leaflet distribution services.
Agreement – means the terms and conditions set out hereunder
Client – means the individual firm or limited company specified to who the Services are to be provided.

User – means the individual firm or limited company or other party as may be specified below that is to use the Services.
Bureau – means any third party which is responsible to the Client and/or the User and which is to assist Client and/or the User in using the Services.
Distributors People/Person – Is the individual that will carry out the distribution of the material to the letterbox.
Composite Town Areas – These are the areas that Uneek Projects have defined as the main conurbation of a town and subdivided into Distribution Rounds.
Distribution Rounds – These are the area(s) that Uneek Projects has designed that the Distributors will walk in the process of delivering the material the average number of households in a Distribution Round is 1,000.
Competing Items – Any item (but not including exceptional items) which does not come from you and which we consider should properly be categorised in the same category code as your items. We use category codes to classify the contents of items.
Delivery address – Any house, property or building, falling within an Adult Distributors round, which can be identified and to which mail can be addressed and posted, and to which we can reasonably expect to deliver mail.
All arrangements made with Uneek Projects must be made in writing before the commencement of the distribution by first class post, fax or email, verbal agreements may be accepted but will have no validity in the event of a dispute.
Date of the agreement by Uneek Projects to distribute the material is the date agreed with the client for the material to commence distribution to residential or business letterboxes in the agreed area, the material must be with Uneek Projects a minimum of 5 working days or as otherwise agreed for distribution to commence on the agreed date.
The time that Uneek Projects takes to distribute the material to the residential households in the case of a Door Drop or business premises in the case of a business drop will depend at all times on the availability of Uneek Projects local distributors to carry out the distribution. If a specific start and completion date is required these dates must be agreed before commencement of the distribution.
Material accepted for distribution by Uneek Projects will normally be carried out by its own distribution force. The distribution will be delivered into Uneek Projects main conurbation or large village distribution rounds. Maps of the Main Conurbation or Large Village Distribution Rounds are available from Uneek Projects.
Types of Distribution
Your own leaflets. Size up to A5. Delivered with up to 3 other leaflets. The distribution will be carried out with up to 3 other non competing leaflets. Clients leaflets will be distributed to Uneek Projects Rounds/postcodes nominated specifically by the client.
Your leaflet delivered alone.
The distribution will be carried out with no other client leaflets but the solus client material will normally be accompanied by a Uneek Projects Delivery Audit Voucher (DAV) back checking leaflet at the discretion of Uneek Projects. Distributions of this type will normally be to client specified Uneek Projects Distribution Rounds/postcodes. Clients leaflets will be distributed to Uneek Projects Composite Town Areas normally nominated specifically by the client.
Time Sensitive Distribution
The client must advise prior to quotation if the material is dated or time sensitive, such material may be subject to a surcharge. If Uneek Projects are not advised at the time of the quotation if the material is dated or time sensitive Uneek Projects do not accept responsibility for late delivered material.
Price is the rate quoted for carrying out the distribution taking into consideration the size and weight of the material and the length of time agreed for the distribution to be carried out. The price quoted in writing will be held good for 30 days from the date of the quotation.
Number of Households
The number of households or Delivery addresses in each Uneek Projects delivery round has been calculated using postcode information from the Royal Mail Postal Address File (PAF) file. The number of Delivery Addresses however has been rounded up to achieve a maximum level of penetration.
Level of Penetration
In the defined area of a Uneek Projects Distribution Round or other agreed distribution area Uneek Projects will use its best endeavors to achieve 100 percent coverage to delivery addresses in the defined area. However due to the logistics of delivering unaddressed material and the location of delivery addresses the Uneek Projects adult distributors may not always be able to find all delivery addresses or letterboxes in the defined area, therefore the level of penetration of the distribution may be less than 100%. In all circumstances Uneek Projects cannot guarantee to reach every letterbox in the defined area but it will carry out its best endeavors to reach the maximum level of penetration. Uneek Projects will only at its discretion deliver to shops and business premises in the Distribution Round.
Circumstances Where Delivery Might Not Take Place
It is emphasised that there are number of specific reasons why an individual property might not receive an item;
- i) The material is unaddressed and therefore the Uneek Projects adult distributors may not realise that they have not delivered to a specific property.
- ii) The property in question may not have a letterbox or the letterbox may not be in the front door of the property
iii) If the property is multi occupancy ie a converted house or block of flats it may not be possible to gain access to all separate occupancies in the residence. Sometimes due to security at the building it may not be possible to gain access to deliver any unaddressed material.
- iv) If there is a warning of a dog at the premises Uneek Projects and or its adult distributor will at its discretion not attempt to deliver to the property.
- vi) If there is a notice at the property advising that the resident or residents do not wish to receive unaddressed material or the resident has written to Uneek Projects to the effect that they do not require unaddressed material to be delivered we will not deliver to that address.
vii) delivery will not normally be made to obviously empty or derelict properties or where the access to the premises may be hazardous to the safety of the adult distributor.
Uneek Projects Leaflet Distribution may utilise GPS technology to ensure the safe and reliable delivery of our client’s distribution media. We do not normally share the GPS data with our clients as it is an internal tool however in certain circumstances may be made available on request.
Surpluses and Shortfalls
The number of leaflets supplied to Uneek Projects will be checked for accuracy using an electronic counting device. If there is insufficient material to complete the area required the client will be advised. If there quantity of the material is greater than the amount need to complete the area nominated by the client the excess material will be retained and the client given the option to collect the surplus material at his cost or to nominate suitable addition areas where the materiel can be distributed to.

The storage of the material however should be insured by the client company in the event the insurers of Uneek Projects refuse to pay on any individual claim for loss or damage to material made by Uneek Projects on their insurers.

In the event of a delay or error in the quantity of items supplied, distribution will be carried out at the earliest subsequent opportunity.
Uneek Projects shall not be liable for refusing to accept, publish or deliver any content for the reasons as set out above and the Company shall have the right to make any changes to the services to be provided which are necessary to comply with any applicable law or safety requirement or which do not materially affect the nature or the quality of such services.
Unless agreed otherwise between the parties, Uneek Projects services shall not be exclusive to the customer and the Company shall not be restricted in any manner from distributing material for other customers.
Once a contract has been confirmed by the client either by telephone, post or electronic means, arrangements will be established with our distribution network for the distribution to take place in accordance with timescales agreed between Uneek Projects and the client. If the client is also booking our printing service time must be allocated prior to the distribution for the printed material to arrive at Uneek Projects office and be got ready for distribution.
Where the client cancels a contract a 100% cancellation fee will be applied to the contract where printing has been instructed/authorised and the order placed on the factory by Uneek Projects. Where the distribution of the material has been allocated and reserved a 50% cancellation fee will be applied to the contract.
The client may cancel a distribution or any part of the distribution any time before the commencement of the distribution of the material providing the material is still in the possession of the Uneek Projects office where the distribution was being organised. However if the material has been transferred to the adult distributor(s) who has been allocated to carry out the distribution then that contract or part of that contract cannot be cancelled and the material will be distributed.
Where a cancellation is accepted by Uneek Projects the material must be collected by the client from the office to which it has been sent or a transport charge will be made for returning the material to the client. If the material is not collected from Uneek Projects office within one calendar month of the cancellation date the material will be recycled. If it becomes necessary for Uneek Projects to cancel a contract, subject to the circumstances concerned the material will be returned to the client’s premises by Uneek Projects. Uneek Projects reserves the right to cancel any contract with reasonable grounds.
One month’s minimum notice should be given for any cancellation or alteration to distribution, without penalty. If this notice is not provided, Uneek Projects reserves the right to recover any reasonable costs related to the planned distribution.

Refunds shall only be considered for one calender month after the original order and payment was made. Invoices older than one calendar month on the day of refund request will not be accepted.
The Client must, on request, pay any additional cost to Uneek Projects in supplying the Services caused by: any breach, default, delay or variation by the Client of its obligations under the Contract or these Conditions; any factor beyond Uneek Projects reasonable control; any change in the dates of the supply of the Services which the Client requires; or any delay caused by the Client’s instructions or the Client’s failure to give Uneek Projects adequate information or instructions when the order has been accepted the quotation or at any other time.

In instances where clients request skipping of council estates or houses with ‘no junk mail’ stickers Uneek Projects cannot guarantee completion of the leaflets. Nor can Uneek Projects guarantee all council estates or all houses with ‘no junk mail’ stickers being skipped. This is an extra service that Uneek Projects provides free of charge as a favour to our customers. Please note that you will be paying for the same size team as usual working the same length of time as usual, so in areas with a high density of council estates or houses with ‘no junk mail’ stickers there is a chance there will be more leftovers than usual. If more than 20% of leaflets (our usual minimum completion rate) are left over Leaflet Uneek Projects will store these in the warehouse until the next distribution.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of businesses whose adverts we publish and whilst every care is taken to ensure accuracy, we cannot accept responsibility for loss, damage or omission caused by error in the printing of an advert or other information.
Adverts are accepted on the understanding that descriptions of goods and services are fair and accurate.
