7 Must-Haves for Your Website Development Agreement
7 Essential Provisions for Your Website Development Agreement
A website development agreement is a must-have for any web design project. While each development agreement is unique, there are some common terms that most share. Engaging with a lawyer who can draft a customized contract based on your needs is the only way to have all of your web development needs met in full, but here are a few provisions that no agreement is complete without.
1. Website Specifics
2. Communication Standards and Update Frequency
3. Designer Obligations
Another useful thing about website development agreements is that they clarify the client’s expectations. This is especially true if they have requests that fall outside of the other clauses mentioned in this article. In particular, it helps to address the size of the project, as well as the details of any potential warranties or indemnification clauses. Clients and developers should also discuss who will be in charge of providing training, manuals, and tech support after launch.
4. Support and Maintenance
5. Confidentiality and Noncompete Clauses
6. Force Majeure
7. Website and Intellectual Property Ownership
A website development agreement is foundational to protecting the rights of both developers and their clients. It’s an essential part of thwarting liability, litigation, and disputes before they become a problem for your project.
