The Customer agrees that Nine by Nine Design is not liable for errors in online or published content due to incorrect, misleading or inappropriate information sent to Nine by Nine Design, or, where the Customer caused errors on a website by making changes in the back end; thus Nine by Nine Design deems itself not responsible for those changes and may charge reasonable hourly design fees when applicable to correct the errors.

Web design: the Customer agrees to pay 10% of the hourly rate (10% of $50/hr = $5) multiplied by the remaining hours for the project in question, or as fairly estimated by Nine By Nine Design. For example, if the project in question is a Premium website package (50hrs allocated for design) and 40hrs remain or the project, multiply $5 x 40hrs, for a total of $200 in cancellation fees; if no design hours remain in the project and it is complete, the Customer agrees to pay a standard $100 fee or 10% of the amount owing, whichever is highest. Hosting/SSL/email managed services: the Customer agrees to pay 10% of the hourly rate ($5) multiplied by the remaining months for the project in question; Customers that have multiple hosting services must only pay for the months remaining on the service with the largest amount of months left. Print design: the Customer agrees to pay 10% of the hourly rate multiplied by the remaining hours for the project in question. For example, if a logo design has a $150 value (3 hrs) and the Customer cancels 1 hr into the project, the cancellation rate would be $5 x 2hrs = $10.
