Specific conditions related to our websites
- Web and email hosting
NovAgency Sàrl will host your site on its shared servers with Infomaniak SA. Thus all your data will be stored and managed in Switzerland, and you will benefit from NovAgency's technology watch tools for your own site. If the client wishes, NovAgency International Web Agency can also manage email hosting for the client in the same way.
- Domain name
The customer is advised to remain the sole owner of his/her domain name(s). However, at the request of the client, NovAgency International Web Agency can manage it for him in one of the following ways: either following a transfer of this domain name to NovAgency International Web Agency, or after having been designated as administrator of this name.
As part of the choice of domain name, the customer expressly declares and guarantees that he respects any rights of third parties, in particular those resulting from the law of trade names, copyright and trademark law.
- Service availability
The services are generally available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The customer acknowledges that the availability of the service may be temporarily interrupted due to technical problems or maintenance or servicing work. The client also notes that if service unavailability were to occur, those whose origin is not directly attributable to NovAgency International Web Agency cannot in any case be attributed to it and that no financial compensation can be claimed for such facts.
- Assistance, support and updates
With each of our services you have assistance and support 6/7 from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. In the event of a heavy load, you may be asked to leave a message or reserve a slot in the appointment calendar.
Regarding unlimited updates: by updates we mean the modifications of text and images contained on your site once published, for which it is advisable that you provide us with the following information: the text / image original and the text/image that will replace the original; we also include small text additions or small paragraphs. The modification of complete structure such as the addition of pages or of consequent block of text and image is not part of an update but will be the object of an overhaul or an extension.
- Access to site content
The customer who wishes may at any time have access to modify the content of his website. The customer is then responsible for his actions on the site and for the possible dissemination of his access to third parties.
- Content of the website
The customer is solely responsible for the contents of his website. It ensures that these contents do not infringe the legal provisions and do not present any pornographic, defamatory, importunate, derogatory or otherwise inappropriate nature, that they do not incite violence and are not contrary to morality.
The links included in its site and referring to other external sites are only authorized if they meet the same conditions as those set out above.
If the service provider finds that the client infringes the provisions of this article in any way, the service provider has the right to suspend its service until a situation in conformity with the contract is restored.
- Intellectual property
The legal notices defined on the site answer questions related to intellectual property rights. It is explicitly specified that the customer is the owner of the intellectual property rights or holds the rights of use on all the elements accessible on the site, in particular: the texts, the images, the graphics, the logo, the icons, etc. and that NovAgency International Web Agency owns the intellectual property rights to the design and structure of the site.
- In the event of termination
In the event of termination of the contract, the customer may request to receive the sources of his website. For this, Novagency International Web Agency will provide it, for a flat rate of Chf 50.- per file, either a raw WordPress export of its site, or an “All in One Migration” export of the entire site, or both files. NovAgency International Web Agency will also send a user name and a password allowing you to log in as an administrator once the site has been re-imported. On the other hand, NovAgency will in no way be responsible for the new implementation of the site or for any problems related to the importation of the site into the client's new environment. It should be noted that the import may require certain pre-installed tools, for example Divi, Elementor, or other plugins specific to the site itself. These elements will not be, in any case, attributable to NovAgency International Web Agency. On the other hand, the intellectual property of the design and the structure belongs to NovAgency International Web Agency, which therefore retains the right at all times to reuse this design and content for another client.
