2.1 You are to supply all materials and information required for Design Inspiration to complete the Work in accordance with the agreed specification. Such materials may include, but are not limited to, photographs, written copy, logos and other printed materials. Where the Client’s failure to supply such materials leads to a delay in completion of the work, we have the right to extend previously agreed deadlines for the completion of the Work. Such deadline extensions may take into account further unforeseen and/or predicted delays, and/or commitments to other projects such that the deadline extension added by Design Inspiration may exceed the delay caused by the Client.

3. Maintenance and Correction of Errors
3.1 Design Inspiration takes no responsibility for the functionality or maintenance (unless a maintenance contract is in place) of the Website after the Work has been completed.

5. Rejected Work
5.1 If the Client rejects the Work within the 7 day review period and will not approve subsequent Work performed by Design Inspiration to remedy any points reported by the Client as unsatisfactory, or Design Inspiration considers that the Client is unreasonable in his repeated rejection of the Work, the contract will be deemed to have expired and Design Inspiration can take any legal measures to recover both payment for the completed Work and reasonable expenses incurred in recovering payment.
