  5. Aztec Media will initially place the client's website on one of Aztec Media's demonstration servers during construction in order that the client may view and comment upon the website's progress. When both Aztec Media and the client agree that the website meets the criteria agreed during the commissioning process, Aztec Media will invoice the client for the full amount due for the commission. On receipt of payment, Aztec Media will publish the website, or provide the files necessary for the site via a download (or cd-rom disk) for the client to upload.
  6. If at any point during the Website Development Cycle a client wishes to cancel, they may do so but will be invoiced an amount that Aztec Media judges to be proportional to the amount of work completed on the commission.

  8. Aztec Media does not undertake to maintain or update a client's website as part of the design commission. If a client wishes Aztec Media to maintain or update a web site as a separate commission, Aztec Media will negotiate with the client a maintenance contract appropriate to the amount of work required. Web site maintenance may also be undertaken on a time and materials basis if the client so wishes.
