Courtesy Updates and Automatic Maintenance

Courtesy Updates and Automatic Maintenance

Please read this article carefully! Your account may be automatically enrolled as outlined below.

We want your website to look and perform as well as the day it was launched.... Sometimes, things happen, things that will break, cripple or disable your website. If your website has been crippled or completely disabled, how long as it been like that? Maybe it's only been a day, maybe it's been a month, or even longer? The fact is, until somebody tells you that your website is broken, your website will stay broken! Now ask yourself, how will someone let you know that your website is broken... When your website doesn't work?

Website Monitoring

Beau Brewer Digital implements numerous tools and services to monitor your website. If your account has been enrolled in either the Courtesy Updates or the Automatic Maintenance program, the tools used to monitor your website will generate an alert when there's been a problem detected. After Beau Brewer Digital has been alerted, we will automatically respond to correct the problem. Many times we are able to correct the problem before you (or anyone else) has even noticed.

Courtesy Updates

When you have Beau Brewer Digital design, develop or launch a website, you will receive 30 days of courtesy updates and maintenance. This gives you some time to review your new website after it launched. Giving you the ability to request minor changes at no additional cost. During this time Beau Brewer Digital make any minor changes while keeping your website up to date, ensuring your websites performance as outlined in your initial agreement. After your 30 days of courtesy updates have concluded your account will be automatically enrolled into the Automatic Maintenance program, as outlined below.

Automatic Maintenance

If you have had a website designed, developed, launched or have had Beau Brewer Digital perform maintenance on an existing website your account will be automatically enrolled, unless you contact Beau Brewer Digital to specifically opt out of the program.
While monitoring your website, when/if a problem is detected Beau Brewer Digital will automatically take action to resolve that problem. It's likely we have had already corrected any issues, even before you knew there was an issue. We will email you an outline the problem with the resolution, including any screenshots, when applicable. This service starts at $50 per unique event, then will be billed per hour after the first 30 minutes. There may be times that a problem becomes unserviceable, and will be placed on hold, because we need additional credentials or access to resolve the problem. During these situations, your account will be billed the minimum, and will continue once we receive the additional details needed to resolve the original problem. If we expect or are about to exceed $200, we will contact you before we continue.
