Subscription services

Schudio offers subscription services in return for a regular monthly fee, yearly fee, or 3 yearly fee. Should your account fall into arrears we reserve the right to withdraw services without notice.

You subscription to Schudio includes access to all features and updates of Schudio as made available by Schudio Ltd. The subscription includes access to online support and tutorials. Additional support is available at rates available upon request from Schudio Ltd. Any requests for amendments to the theme designs are not included in your subscription to Schudio. Any custom development requests are not included in your subscription to Schudio. We may offer to develop features for you at an additional cost but the development schedule is determined by the management of Schudio Ltd based on the needs and requirements of our customers and is entirely at the discretion and direction of the management of Schudio Ltd. Suggestions for feature development can be submitted through our support forums.

Fair Use Policy

Our Fair Use policy sets out the terms between you and us under which we provide any websites. This fair use policy applies to all users of our systems. A small number of clients are using a significant amount of storage on our servers compared to all users and this can impact the service we offer to our other customers. Rather than increase prices or decrease service level our fair use policy is designed to ensure that all of our customers receive a fast and reliable service.

All clients therefore will start with a storage limit of 35Gb. Clients will see this limit increased with each cycle renewal. Clients will be notified when they are close to reaching their limit and will be given the opportunity to remove items or increase their limits.

Product Development as part of Subscription Services

Customers who subscribe to our products will automatically receive updates to their account with no additional cost. Developments are created based on feedback from existing customers and decisions made on development are at the discretion of Schudio Ltd, with no exceptions. Should Schudio Ltd release a feature that an individual customer requires personalising to their needs, the customer concerned will be asked to contribute to the customisation of this development.

All developments are at the sole discretion of Schudio Ltd and their decision on feature development is final and binding. No option will be provided for schools to opt out of any feature development without incurring an additional cost due to implications on development time and costs to Schudio Ltd.

Invoicing & Payment

Schudio Ltd standard payment terms are strictly 30 days from the date of invoice except for school websites. Invoices are issued at commencement of work. New website payments are due prior to the launch of your website or within the ‘Standard Delivery Time’, whichever is sooner.

Statutory interest will be charged on all late payments at a rate of 8% plus the Bank of England base rate, currently 0.5%.

Schudio Ltd will specify within estimates or quotes how a project will be invoiced. Large projects may be split into a number of monthly interim invoices plus a final invoice on completion.

Schudio Ltd reserve the right to withhold assets (including logo designs etc), take websites offline, or immediately and without notice cease work until any and all invoices are settled. Websites will not be made live until full payment is received.

Customer support
