STANDARD TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These Terms apply to the entire contents of the websites under the domain names wireditservices.co.uk, wireconsulting.co.uk, wireconsulting.com, delegateyourit.co.uk and delegateyourit.com (the “Websites”) and to the Services. These Terms are issued by WIRE CONSULTING AND TECHNOLOGY LIMITED (“WCT”). When signed by both Parties the Agreement will create legally binding obligations. The Customer is recommended to take and will be assumed to have taken independent professional advice prior to signing.
1.1 These Terms form a legal document which details the Customer's rights and responsibilities as a user of the Websites and the Services. WCT provides access to computer software and hardware together with other linked services and products.
1.2 By accessing any part of the Websites, the Customer shall be deemed to have accepted these Terms in full. If the Customer does not accept these Terms in full, the Customer must leave the Websites immediately and desist from using the Services.
1.3 WCT may revise these Terms at any time. The Customer should check the Websites from time to time to review the then current terms as they are binding on the Customer.
1.4 Certain provisions of these Terms may be superseded by expressly designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages at the Websites.
1.5 These Terms apply in respect of all Services provided by WCT to the Customer and, save where agreed in writing, shall prevail over all other agreements including terms or conditions which the Customer may propose and purport to rely on.
2.1 Personal Data supplied by the Customer must be true and accurate. The Customer must notify WCT immediately if any Personal Data held by WCT changes.
2.2 WCT is based in the United Kingdom but some of the computer systems that provide the Services may be based elsewhere in the World and so Personal Data may be transferred to, processed and held elsewhere in the world.
2.3 In providing the Services WCT works with other organisations which produce the software and hardware and is required under its licences to provide certain information about the Customer to these organisations. By agreeing to these Terms, the Customer agrees to having their Personal Data provided to such organisations.
2.4 WCT may hold Personal Data relating to the transactions which the Customer enters into with us. We will disclose this Personal Data but only insofar as to facilitate the provision of the Services provided to the Customer. WCT may disclose Personal Data where we are compelled to do so by law.
3.1 In providing any of the Services WCT shall endeavour to provide access to the Services twenty four hours a day seven days a week, support in using the Services during the hours of 08.00 to 18.00 Monday to Friday (excluding bank and public holidays) (“Business Hours”), reasonable security and firewalls for the protection of information and files and the backing up of files once in every twenty four hour period during Business Hours.
3.2 To reduce any inconvenience to its customers, WCT shall endeavour to ensure that any routine service work to its systems which may impact on the provision of the Services and the backing up of files will normally be carried out outside of Business Hours. In such an instance, we shall post notices providing seven days notice of such work. There may be instances where routine out of hours servicing runs into Business Hours so affecting the provision of the Services but we shall endeavour to keep such interruptions to the Services to a minimum.
3.3 Access to the Websites and Services may be temporarily suspended and without notice in the case of system failure, unexpected maintenance or repair, where urgent or unexpected remedial action is required to protect the Services or customer files or for reasons beyond WCT’s control. In such instances, it may be necessary to withdraw the Services in whole or part.
3.4 Where a breakdown in providing any part of the Services occurs, remedial work will normally only start during Business Hours.
3.5 Where Services are unavailable due to third party acts or omissions or where factors are outside the control of WCT, including without limitation the withdrawal of support by our licensors and business partners, virus attack and network sabotage, we shall endeavour to have such support reinstated but provide no guarantee.
3.6 WCT shall not be liable to the Customer if for any reason the Websites or the Services are unavailable at any time for any period.
4. ACCESS AND SERVICE PROVISION
4.1 WCT and its content providers and other third party suppliers, may from time to time modify or remove aspects of the Services, including various types of content and services. WCT will not, however, remove aspects of the Services which are fundamental to its nature without first giving notice to customers in the same manner as changes to these Terms.
4.2 The Customer will be charged for using the Services in accordance with the terms of the Agreement then in place. We reserve the right to and may change our fees or billing methods, but will provide the Customer with at least thirty days’ advance notice of any such change.

4.3 We expect the Customer to pay their account balances on time. If we do not receive payment within thirty days from the date on the Customer's WCT account statement, the Customer agrees to pay all outstanding charges due to WCT on demand and as a debt, and WCT will be entitled to charge interest of 3.5% above the base rate of National Westminster Bank Plc from time to time in force for all outstanding charges. Additonally WCT has the right to temporarily or permanently withdraw services until the Customer has paid any outstanding balances.
4.4 The Customer shall have 14 days from the date of an account statement within which to inform WCT in writing of any billing discrepancies, otherwise the Customer will have waived their right to dispute those discrepancies.
4.5 It is recommended that the Customer connect to the Websites through a high speed broadband link. Unless arranged and purchased through WCT all connection charges are the Customer's responsibility. Any third party charges for the Customer's accessing the Websites other than those specifically agreed between the Customer and us are also the Customer's responsibility.

WCT has not reviewed all of these third party websites and does not control and is not responsible for these websites or their contents or availability. WCT therefore does not endorse or make any representations about them, or any material found there, or any results that may be obtained from using them. If the Customer decides to access any of the third party websites linked to the Websites the Customer does so entirely at their own risk.
10.2 The Customer may link to the homepages of the Websites providing they do not replicate the homepage, remove, distort, or otherwise alter the size or appearance of any of WCT’s intellectual property, create a frame or any other browser or border environment around the Websites, in any way imply that WCT is endorsing any products or services other than its own, misrepresent their relationship with WCT nor present any other false information about WCT, use any WCT trade marks displayed on the Websites without express written permission from WCT, link from a website that is not owned by the Customer and the Customer’s website does not contain content that is distasteful, offensive, controversial or unlawful.

12.2 Any exercise by WCT of its rights under this clause 12 shall be without prejudice to any other rights or remedies available to WCT under the Agreement or otherwise.
13. INADEQUACY OF DAMAGES
Without prejudice to any other rights or remedies that WCT may have, the Customer acknowledges and agrees that damages alone may not be an adequate remedy for any breach by the Customer of the provisions of the Agreement and that accordingly WCT shall be entitled, without proof of special damages, to the remedies of injunction, specific performance or other equitable relief for any threatened or actual breach of the provisions of the Agreement.
14. WAIVER AND REMEDIES
