2.How the contract is formed between you and SEO+
2.1. After you have placed an order for Services by telephone, email or post, you will receive an email from SEO+ acknowledging that SEO+ has received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to SEO+ to supply a Service(s). All orders are subject to acceptance by SEO+, and SEO+ will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms it will provide the specified Service (the Service Confirmation). The contract between SEO+ (Contract) will only be formed when SEO+ send you the Service Confirmation. The Contract will relate only to those Services that SEO+ have confirmed in the Service Confirmation. SEO+ will not be obliged to supply any other Services that may have been part of your order until such Services have been confirmed in a separate Service Confirmation.
3.Price and payment
The price of any Services will be as quoted on the site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error and will be confirmed to you over the telephone or by email or post when you place an order for Services. Prices are quoted in sterling and if payment is made in any currency other than sterling the exchange rate will be that applicable on the day the transfer is processed. These prices include VAT (where applicable).
Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which SEO+ have already sent you a Service Confirmation.
The site contains a number of Services and it is always possible that, despite SEO+’s best efforts, some of the Services listed on the site may be incorrectly priced. SEO+ will normally verify prices as part of the Service Confirmation so that, where a Service’s correct price is less than the stated price, SEO+ will charge the lower amount when providing the Service to you. If a Service´s correct price is higher than the price stated on the site, SEO+ will normally, at its discretion, either contact you for instructions before providing the Service, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
SEO+ is under no obligation to provide the Service to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after SEO+ has sent you a Service Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
Payment for all Services must be by credit or debit card or by direct debit collection or BACS payments. SEO+ accept payment with Visa Debit, Visa Credit, Visa Electron, Mastercard Debit, Mastercard Credit, Maestro.
SEO+ will send you its first invoice for Services the day after we have sent you a Service Confirmation with payment due within 7 days of the date of the invoice. The provision of services by SEO+ will not commence until payment has been received from you and the 7 working days “cooling off” period for cancellation of the contract referred to in clause 5 has expired. Invoices will be sent to you by SEO+ monthly thereafter with payment due within 7 days of the date of invoice. Pay per click (PPC) payments are required by SEO+ in advance of actual spend with the PPC search engine, whether or not an invoice has been issued by SEO+.
Failure by you to pay SEO+’s invoices within 7 days of the date thereof will result in the cancellation of Services by SEO+ until payment has been received in full. Legal action may also be commenced by SEO+ to recover any outstanding payments.
You must pay PPC budgets to SEO+ in advance. SEO+ reserves the right to cancel any PPC campaigns without notice where you have not made payment in advance or at all.
If you are contracting as a consumer for Services, you may cancel a Contract at any time within seven working days beginning on the day after you received the Service Confirmation.
