Our website development agreement template can be used for the engagement of a website developer to develop a website,  provide technical support to rectify errors in the website, and to provide hosting services for the website.

How this document can help you

Engaging a website developer to develop a website without an agreement in place is risky for both the website developer and the client.  For example,  without an agreement in place  it can be very difficult for a client to assert that it owns intellectual property rights in the website but it payed the developers to deliver.  having a clear agreement which sets out who owns the website can help avoid disputes later on down the track.  Having a written agreement in place can also help avoid disputes about the scope of the project and the functionality that the website is to include.

What it includes

Our website  development agreement template includes:

  • Provisions which deal with ownership of intellectual property in the website.  Depending on your responses to our online questionnaire, DocuStream®  will tailor your template to make it clear that either the client owns the intellectual property rights in the website or at the developer owns its pre-existing code and the client owns the code developed by the developer when it is paid for by the client.
  • Placeholders for fees, specifications, acceptance test criteria, a project schedule/plan and other variables that DocuStream®  will automatically populate into the document for you using the responses you provide to our online questionnaire.
  • Provisions which required the client to deliver logos, graphics  and other relevant materials to the developer within a certain period of time for the developer to incorporate into the website.
  • ​Examples service levels and service credits to apply should you  indicate in response to our online questionnaire that you would like service levels and service credits to apply to support and/or  hosting services.
  • ​Liability limitation, indemnity and dispute resolution clauses.
  • ​Confidentiality, termination and other general provisions
