This Agreement may be terminated by Berlime Solutions if (i) Client fails to pay any fees hereunder; or (ii)

if Client fails to cooperate with Berlime Solutions or hinders Berlime Solutions ability to perform the Maintenance Services hereunder.

Berlime Solutions agrees to provide Client with Maintenance Services as described in this Agreement. Maintenance Services include:

  • Updates to the Client’s content management system, including plugins and themes.*
  • Cloud backup of the website on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis, depending on the Maintenance Package purchased.*
  • Recovery of website files from backups.*
  • Uptime monitoring (if included in package purchased).*
  • Regular security scans (if included in package purchased).*

  • Any website support requests, above and beyond what is outlined in package, or WordPress questions requiring a response by Berlime Solutions will count towards the monthly allotted time.

*These are tasks that are done throughout the month and will be detailed in your monthly report. Some items, such as updates, only occur when necessary and when we know the update is a stable version and it is okay to proceed.

Malware, Spam, or Malicious Code 

  • Removal of malware, spam, and malicious code from the Client’s website is available for an additional charge of S$75 per incident for clients who are on a maintenance plan at the time of infection.
  • Removal of malware, spam, and malicious code that is existing on a website when a Client signs up for a maintenance plan will be charged at a rate of S$175 for removal. This charge does not include working with Google or other search engines on your behalf to solve any issues your infection has caused you with their services.

Fees; Limitations on Refunds and Cancellation Fees

  • The Client agrees to pay Berlime Solutions any and all fee(s) as billed in accordance with this Agreement.
  • The fee(s) must be received prior to the start of any Maintenance Services. The client further agrees that, in the event of any termination of this agreement by client, no refunds shall be given under any circumstances whatsoever.

Client Responsibilities

For the purposes of providing these services, Client agrees:

  1. To answer any questions from Berlime Solutions, in regard to task work on the website, promptly.
  2. To provide Berlime Solutions with access to its website for the purpose of providing Maintenance Services.
  3. To properly convey to Berlime Solutions the information about content updates (if these are covered by the Maintenance Package).
  4. To provide Berlime Solution access to their web hosting account, providing active user name/password combinations for access to the server via (S)FTP, assuring that correct permissions are in place on the hosting provider.

Client Acknowledgements

The client understands, acknowledges, and agrees that:

  1. The client understands that all work for monthly maintenance tasks will be scheduled according to Berlime Solutions’ workflow. We have a process and maintain sites for many Clients, therefore all website updates work that counts towards your monthly time allowance are done on a first come first serve basis, except in the case of a total website down issue, which would be considered an “emergency.”
  2. Failure by the Client to answer a question critical to completing a task within 5 business days may cause that task to be moved to the “end of the line” in our work queue. Depending on the time of the month, this could cause that task to roll over into the next month’s bucket of update requests.
  3. The amount of time allocated for updates to text, images, and other minor changes, is determined by the Maintenance Package that they purchased and will be billed in fifteen (15) minute increments.
  4. Once the time allocated in their Maintenance Package has been reached for the month, any unfinished tasks on the Client’s task list will be rolled into the next month for processing.
  5. All monthly updates are scheduled at our convenience and in accordance with our schedule. We have a process and workflow that we use to maintain all of our clients’ websites fairly and orderly. The only exception being in the case of the Client’s website being totally offline or down for some reason, in which case their issue would be considered an ‘emergency’ and would take priority.
  6. Should the Client wish to have additional tasks completed in the same month, they will be billed on an hourly basis of S$15 per hour.
  7. The client understands that if they provide Berlime Solutions with a maintenance task and the task has been completed, then they wish to make changes to the task, any additional time to make these changes will count towards the monthly allowance of time.
  8. Website updates exclude, but are not limited to, image editing, graphic design, graphic editing, database design, database changes, programming, and search engine optimization.
  9. Website updates do not include website redesign, re-alignment, or re-development equalling more than 50% change to a web page, web graphics on the website (i.e. 4 graphics on a website, and you want 3 changes, there is a charge for anything above 2, meaning 50%).
  10. CMS design and integration of plugins that require intensive configuration, or programming of things that require extensive time to set up, including but not limited to blogs, shopping carts, API integrations with third party services, and web forums are not considered “minor” changes and therefore are not included in the Maintenance Agreement. These require a separate design or development agreement.
  11. The Maintenance Agreement does not include training on how to use your website, WordPress, or email, but we can provide training at additional cost.
  12. Maintenance Agreement does not include training on search engine optimization (SEO) or other online digital marketing.
  13. All communications will be done during regular business hours, which are Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM (GMT +8).
  14. If the Client’s website is not hosted with Berlime Solutions, we have no control over the Client’s hosting company in regard to server downtime, incompatibilities with software, PHP compatibility issues, etc.
  15. If the Client’s email accounts are not hosted with Berlime Solutions, we can’t be responsible for the Client’s email issues or troubleshooting problems on their own computer. Our role is to maintain and keep your website running at its optimal capabilities. We are not your IT team.
  16. Berlime Solutions has no control over the policies of search engines or directories with respect to the type of sites and/or content that they accept now or in the future. Client’s website(s) may be excluded from any search engine or directory at any time at the sole discretion of the search engine or directory entity.
  17. Unused time is not accumulative and does not transfer from month to month. Maintenance Services time is strictly month to month.
  18. Berlime Solutions is not responsible for rewriting sentences, restructuring paragraphs, or checking for typing errors, misspellings, etc.
  19. Berlime Solutions is not responsible for changes made to the client’s website(s) by other parties, including the client.
  20. During the duration of this contract, the Client agrees that Berlime Studios will be the sole provider of maintenance services for the website, and no other party will have access to or rights to change the website’s code. If a party, including the Client, other than Berlime Solutions makes changes to the website’s code, any errors that are created must be repaired and will be charged at the hourly rate specified above.
  21. Berlime Solution is not responsible for third-party plugins that may become unusable as a result of Maintenance Services performed.
  22. Berlime Solutions will not repair the Client’s website(s) that became compromised, hacked, or otherwise defaced or infected prior to ordering Maintenance Services.

Scheduling of Maintenance Tasks
Because of the nature of our business, we are juggling multiple maintenance clients, on top of several large web design projects, at any given time. Because time is at a premium, we don’t take on more clients than we can handle, however, scheduling is a priority for us. We schedule all work for the month in advance to maintain a workflow that is conducive for our business and for all of our clients. When we take on a maintenance Client they are given a set amount of time in our schedule for maintenance tasks that can be done each month that are counted towards their monthly time allotment. Please understand that the scheduling of these tasks is totally at the discretion of Berlime Solutions. The only time we put one Client’s tasks for another Client’s place in line is in the case of an emergency. Unless a website problem interrupts your business monetarily, for instance, an eCommerce site that goes down or has problems with checkouts, or it is totally down or offline, it is not considered an emergency. We will provide the amount of time you have contracted for each month towards updates, however, we do it in accordance with our schedule. This is the only way we can be fair to all of our clients.

  • SSD Storage: SSD storage is the amount of the maximum content your website will be able to hold. Give 20% of the storage for system files. Example (20% of 5 GB SSD Storage plan is 1GB, usable storage is 4GB) This is a good gauge to avoid overall slow performance website.
  • NVMe SSD Storage: A faster option of SSD storage for demanding website that has large photo/video contents, eCommerce or any application that requires a lot of requests from the front end to the hosting server. This increases overall website speed.
  • Managed Hosting: Berlime Solution will handle the basic hosting administrative tasks, including installing WordPress, automated daily backups, WordPress core updates, and server-level caching. Hosted on Berlime Solution’s shared hosting account.

This usually is caused by nature elements, political disputes, wars, or unforeseen disasters in the provider’s data centres. Berlime Solutions will be held no responsible if the hosting provider is facing any downtime issues.

Scheduling of Maintenance Tasks
Because of the nature of our business, we are juggling multiple maintenance clients, on top of several large web design projects, at any given time. Because time is at a premium, we don’t take on more clients than we can handle, however, scheduling is a priority for us. We schedule all work for the month in advance to maintain a workflow that is conducive for our business and all of our clients. When we take on a maintenance Client they are given a set amount of time in our schedule for maintenance tasks that can be done each month that are counted towards their monthly time allotment. Please understand that the scheduling of these tasks is totally at the discretion of Berlime Solutions. The only time we put one Client’s tasks for another Client’s place in line is in the case of an emergency. Unless a website problem interrupts your business monetarily, for instance, an eCommerce site that goes down or has problems with checkouts, or it is down or offline, it is not considered an emergency. We will provide the amount of time you have contracted for each month towards updates, however, we do it in accordance with our schedule. This is the only way we can be fair to all of our clients.
