Service Level Agreement (SLA)


“Zenlec Service” refers to Zenlec virtual machine(s) and the Zenlec Load Balancing service.

“Availability” means that the Zenlec service is running and has external network access as determined by Zenlec

“Service Credit” means an amount of credit in pound sterling applied to a Customers future invoice.

“Scheduled Maintenance” means any planned maintenance period. Zenlec will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify customers of planned maintenance at least 7 days in advance (and at least 24 hours in advance for emergency maintenance).

Service Level

Zenlec will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure availability of your Zenlec Service for at least 99.95% of the time, excluding Scheduled Maintenance. In the event that we don’t meet this commitment during any consecutive 30-day period you will be eligible for Service Credits of 2.5% of your fees for every full 30 minute period of unavailability up to a maximum of 100% of your relevant fees paid for that period.

Claims & Credits

To receive a Service Credit you must submit your claim via the Zenlec helpdesk, including details of the period(s) of unavailability you wish to claim credit for so we can corroborate the details. Claims for Service Credits must be received within 14 days of the most recent reported period of unavailability. Service Credits (if eligible) will be applied to your next regular (i.e. monthly or annual) invoice.

Eligibility & Exclusions

The following scenarios are examples where the Zenlec SLA does not apply…

Unavailability is due to a Customers own misconfiguration of their server(s) or application(s)

Unavailability is caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control, for example, network routing problems elsewhere that affect access to your Zenlec service

Unavailability is due to Scheduled Maintenance

The customer’s account has been suspended (e.g for non-payment or breach of terms and conditions)

The customer’s account has overdue payments

The customers usage of Zenlec Service is in contravention of the Terms and Conditions

The customers usage of Zenlec Services is deemed excessive (e.g use of network bandwidth or shared MySQL service is affecting other customers)

The following terms and conditions apply to all website development / design services provided by Zenlec to the Client.


It is not necessary for any Client to have signed an acceptance of these terms and conditions for them to apply. If a Client accepts a quote then the Client will be deemed to have satisfied themselves as to the terms applying and have accepted these terms and conditions in full.

Please read these terms and conditions carefully. Any purchase or use of our services implies that you have read and accepted our terms and conditions.


Charges for services to be provided by Zenlec are defined in the project quotation that the Client receives via e-mail. Quotations are valid for a period of 30 days. Zenlec Digital reserves the right to alter or decline to provide a quotation after expiry of the 30 days.

Unless agreed otherwise with the Client, all website design services require an advance payment of a minimum of thirty three (33) percent of the project quotation total before the work is supplied to the Client for review. A second charge of thirty three (33) percent is required after the development stage, with the remaining thirty three (33) percent of the project quotation total due upon completion of the work, prior to upload to the server or release of materials.

Payment for services is due by cheque or bank transfer. Cheques should be made payable to Zenlec and sent to Zenlec Bank details will be made available on invoices.

Client Review

Zenlec will provide the Client with an opportunity to review the appearance and content of the website during the design phase and once the overall website development is completed. At the completion of the project, such materials will be deemed to be accepted and approved unless the Client notifies Zenlec otherwise within ten (10) days of the date the materials are made available to the Client.

Turnaround Time and Content Control

Zenlec will install and publicly post or supply the Client’s website by the date specified in the project proposal, or at date agreed with Client upon Zenlec receiving initial payment, unless a delay is specifically requested by the Client and agreed by Zenlec.

In return, the Client agrees to delegate a single individual as a primary contact to aid Zenlec with progressing the commission in a satisfactory and expedient manner.

During the project, Zenlec will require the Client to provide website content; text, images, movies and sound files

Failure to provide required website content:

Zenlec is a small business, to remain efficient we must ensure that work we have programmed is carried out at the scheduled time. On occasions we may have to reject offers for other work and enquiries to ensure that your work is completed at the time arranged.

This is why we ask that you provide all the required information in advance. On any occasion where progress cannot be made with your website because we have not been given the required information in the agreed time frame, and we are delayed as result, we reserve the right to impose a surcharge of up to 25%. If your project involves Search Engine Optimisation we need the text content for your site in advance so that the SEO can be planned and completed efficiently.

If you agree to provide us with the required information and subsequently fail to do within one week of project commencement we reserve the right to close the project and the balance remaining becomes payable immediately. Simply put, all the above condition says is do not give us the go ahead to start until you are ready to do so.

NOTE: Text content should be delivered as a Microsoft Word, email (or similar) document with the pages in the supplied document representing the content of the relevant pages on your website. These pages should have the same titles as the agreed website pages. Contact Us if you need clarification on this.

Using our content management system you are able to keep your content up to date your self.


Invoices will be provided by Zenlec upon completion but before publishing the live website. Invoices are normally sent via email; however, the Client may choose to receive hard copy invoices. Invoices are due upon receipt. Accounts that remain unpaid thirty (30) days after the date of the invoice will be assessed a service charge in the amount of the higher of one and one-half percent (1.5%) or £30 per month of the total amount due.

Additional Expenses

Client agrees to reimburse Zenlec for any additional expenses necessary for the completion of the work. Examples would be purchase of special fonts, stock photography etc.

Web Browsers

Zenlec makes every effort to ensure websites are designed to be viewed by the majority of visitors. Websites are designed to work with the most popular current browsers (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer 8 & 9, Google Chrome, etc.). Client agrees that Zenlec cannot guarantee correct functionality with all browser software across different operating systems.

Zenlec cannot accept responsibility for web pages which do not display acceptably in new versions of browsers released after the website have been designed and handed over to the Client. As such, Zenlec reserves the right to quote for any work involved in changing the website design or website code for it to work with updated browser software.


Accounts unpaid thirty (30) days after the date of invoice will be considered in default. If the Client in default maintains any information or files on Zenlec Web space, Zenlec will, at its discretion, remove all such material from its web space. Zenlec is not responsible for any loss of data incurred due to the removal of the service. Removal of such material does not relieve the Client of the obligation to pay any outstanding charges assessed to the Client’s account. Cheques returned for insufficient funds will be assessed a return charge of £25 and the Client’s account will immediately be considered to be in default until full payment is received. Clients with accounts in default agree to pay Zenlec  reasonable expenses, including legal fees and costs for collection by third-party agencies, incurred by Zenlec in enforcing these Terms and Conditions.


Termination of services by the Client must be requested in a written notice and will be effective on receipt of such notice. E-mail or telephone requests for termination of services will not be honoured until and unless confirmed in writing. The Client will be invoiced for design work completed to the date of first notice of cancellation for payment in full within thirty (30) days.


All Zenlec services may be used for lawful purposes only. You agree to indemnify and hold Zenlec harmless from any claims resulting from your use of our service that damages you or any other party.


The Client retains the copyright to data, files and graphic logos provided by the Client, and grants Zenlec the rights to publish and use such material. The Client must obtain permission and rights to use any information or files that are copyrighted by a third party. The Client is further responsible for granting Zenlec permission and rights for use of the same and agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Zenlec from any and all claims resulting from the Client’s negligence or inability to obtain proper copyright permissions. A contract for website design and/or placement shall be regarded as a guarantee by the Client to Zenlec  that all such permissions and authorities have been obtained. Evidence of permissions and authorities may be requested.

Standard Media Delivery

Unless otherwise specified in the project quotation, this Agreement assumes that any text will be provided by the Client in electronic format (ASCII text files delivered on floppy disk or via e-mail or FTP) and that all photographs and other graphics will be provided physically in high quality print suitable for scanning or electronically in .gif, .jpeg, .png or .tiff format. Although every reasonable attempt shall be made by Zenlec to return to the Client any images or printed material provided for use in creation of the Client’s website, such return cannot be guaranteed.

Design Credit

A link to Zenlec will appear in either small type or by a small graphic at the bottom of the Client’s website. If a graphic is used, it will be designed to fit in with the overall site design. If a client requests that the design credit be removed, a nominal fee of 10% of the total development charges will be applied. When total development charges are less than £5000, a fixed fee of £500 will be applied. The Client also agrees that the website developed for the Client may be presented in Zenlec portfolio.

Access Requirements

If the Client’s website is to be installed on a third-party server, Zenlec must be granted temporary read/write access to the Client’s storage directories which must be accessible via FTP. Depending on the specific nature of the project, other resources might also need to be configured on the server.

Post-Placement Alterations

Zenlec cannot accept responsibility for any alterations caused by a third party occurring to the Client’s pages once installed. Such alterations include, but are not limited to additions, modifications or deletions.

Domain Names

Zenlec may purchase domain names on behalf of the Client. Payment and renewal of those domain names is the responsibility of the Client. The loss, cancellation or otherwise of the domain brought about by non or late payment is not the responsibility of Zenlec. The Client should keep a record of the due dates for payment to ensure that payment is received in good time.


These Terms and Conditions supersede all previous representations, understandings or agreements. The Client’s signature below or payment of an advance fee constitutes agreement to and acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. Payment online is an acceptance of our terms and conditions.
