As all code developed by JM4 is bespoke to our customers, we are in a unique position to make a simple but effective promise:
"All code developed by JM4 will be the sole property of the customer it is developed for."
What does this mean. Exactly what it says.
All code that we develop for you will belong to you. We will never charge you a yearly subscription for your code and yes
this includes your Content Management System.
So what if you decide to leave JM4? Our last act is to give you full control of your domain and hosting package
including all code and databases to alter as you please. We do not charge you "Administration" fees to leave.
We only have one condition; We ask you not to re-sell any code developed by JM4 as your own.
Are we really serious?
In short Yes, we are very serious.
To back up our claims we are even willing to publish our answers to the questions we recommend you ask any web developement company
you are thinking of employing.
Will the domain name be registered in my name?
Yes. You can either register the domain yourself or we can do it for you. We register all domains in our client's name.
Will I have access to my hosting package?
Yes. However we recommend that if you take a JM4 support package you leave this to us.
Any changes that you make yourself could potentially void your support agreement.
Do I have sole ownership of the code and content that builds my website?
Yes. Like we stated in our promise, All the code belongs to you.
We just have one condition, and that is that you so now re-sell the code as your own work.
Do I have sole ownership of any databases (structure and content) that may power my website?
Yes. This is the core of your website and is unconditionally owned by you.
Do I own my Content Management System?
Yes. This is just like the code that builds your website, it belongs to you.
Again, there is that one condition that you do not re-sell the code as your own work.
Are post release modifications covered in my support agreement?
We allow unlimited modifications to the content of your website free of charge.
We aim to have all changes made within 3 working days.
However we do have a fair use policy. If you are excessively using your support, your changes may take longer than the 3
working days to allow other customers get their requests processed. If this is the case we will let you know how long your changes will take.
If you want any changes to the structure/layout of the website then, unfortunately there could be a charge.
If it is a minor alteration to the structure, we will complete this free of charge. However, if it is quite a large modification, we set the price depending on the complexity of the changes you want. Please be aware that the changes can take up to 5 working days to be implemented.
