Please expect a small delay in responding to emails. A deadline that we impose on ourselves, needing to optimize our work periods without interruption.
In order for us to respect your needs and our prior commitments, please contact us at least 48 hours in advance and ideally 1 to 2 weeks before the date you need to have your graphic creation in hand. For websites, you will understand that the deadlines are longer: contact us at least 2 months before the expected delivery date and ideally 3 to 4 months in advance. We concentrate communications via email and in our Google Drive shared documents so we have everything in one place. Please avoid Facebook and other informal channels (e.g. texting).
Invoices are always payable upon receipt, with a grace period of 30 days without interest. We must be diligent about these deadlines. Reminders are therefore automated in our billing system. Thank you for paying your bills on time.
Communications and Requests
Emails and calls are subject to a 24-hour response time (unless considered urgent as described below). The Company plans projects and a schedule on a weekly basis. In order to meet the deadlines promised to all of its Customers, the latter must plan their needs in advance so that they can agree on a delivery date that suits both parties. After the analysis of the Customer’s request, the Company will inform the Customer of the next possible delivery date. A request that cannot wait for this time slot will be subject to the increased hourly rate posted in the fees.
When making a request, the Customer must include these essential elements, ideally within a single email or file:
It is the Customer’s responsibility to provide all necessary materials BEFORE the work begins. Missing documents or information will necessarily cause additional delays and sometimes duplicate work (more hours), which is not desirable for both parties. Please ensure that you provide clear instructions, in a single email, with relevant attachment(s) (.zip). It is also advisable and even preferable to use the assigned and shared Google Drive folder.
Only email or phone requests will be considered and scheduled in a timely manner. The Company is not required to respond under the terms of this SLA to informal requests from Facebook (personal) or received via text message.
The terms and conditions contained in this SLA apply to all Customers unless otherwise agreed in writing. No other contractual conditions apply unless a specific written agreement has been produced. In case of ambiguity between these terms and conditions and the terms agreed upon in writing between the Company and the Customer, these terms and conditions shall prevail. This SLA will be emailed with all quotes via a web link. By accepting a quote, the Customer also agrees to the terms and conditions contained in this SLA. The Company reserves the right to change these terms and conditions from time to time and it is the Customer’s responsibility to visit this page at regular intervals to be updated.
Quotation, estimate, and costs
The Company will provide the Customer with initial estimates for projects upon request. These estimates will be as accurate as possible based on a set of initial concepts and an indicated number of revisions. However, the final project amount may differ from the initial estimate. An informal estimate, as opposed to a quotation, is useful when the actual project amount cannot be reasonably or accurately determined at the outset. The Customer will be made aware of the nature of the quote provided.
Work performed beyond this estimate, including a change in documented specifications, will be subject to additional charges which will be confirmed with the Customer via email prior to the start of the additional work. Costs will be billed at an hourly rate or on a lump sum basis depending on the agreement, either at the time they are incurred or upon the full completion of a project.
All quotes, estimates, notes, and other documents shared between the Company and the Custome are commercially confidential and may not be disclosed to third parties without prior written consent.
Requests added to a project AFTER the Customer has accepted it may incur additional charges. Where possible, depending on the time frame requested by the Customer, the Customer will be informed of these additional charges by email prior to the commencement of the work.
Quotes are normally valid for 14 days, unless a different date is specified on the quote.
Any deposit is due immediately, with the balance due upon completion of the work upon receipt of the final invoice.
Start of work
The Customer agrees to provide written approval of the proposal via email prior to the start of any work as a statement of the agreement between the Customer and the Company regarding the work described in the said proposal. The email agreement is the official signature.
Use of third parties
The Company, if necessary, may act as the Customer’s agent and, directly or through an intermediary, request another contractor and/or supplier (“Third Party(ies)”) to perform certain aspects of the project. The Company will pay the costs of such Third Parties upon the agreement of the Customer, and then recharge them to the Customer. The Company will take all reasonable precautions to select and instruct the third party. However, the Company will have no control over the activities of third parties and therefore accepts no responsibility for the services provided to the Customer by such third-party contractors or for any errors or omissions in their work or products. (e.g. delivery times).
The value of work included in a ﬁxed price quotation specification that is omitted (undelivered) will be assessed independently and deducted from the final project amount. Work in addition to that detailed in a fixed price estimate will be evaluated and added to the final sum of the project.
Branding and graphic design services

If changes are required to a project after payment of the outstanding invoice, the additional charges will be confirmed with the Customer and the Customer will be billed for the work performed. After the initial discussion to situate the brand, an estimate will be issued to the Customer detailing the Company’s understanding of the Customer’s position, the design direction (as discussed), and the estimated costs. If the customer requests extensive changes and modifications that are outside the approved agreement, this will result in additional charges. The Customer will be informed of these additional costs by e-mail before the start of the additional work.
Website Development and Digital Marketing Services
For all web design, web development, programming, hosting services, CMS maintenance, and any other kind of digital marketing services, an estimate is calculated and then submitted to the Customer.

The Company handles a Customer’s security, trust and respect. The safeguarding of Customer personal data is particularly important. Hence, the Company communicates the above to its visitors and/or Customers:
5.1 The Company registers domain names under the function of a domain reseller and acts as mediator between the Customer and whichever company acts as an official registrar or is responsible for the management of the main database. The Company has no bearing in the distribution of domain names.
5.2 The Customer/user/future owner of domain names should read, understand and consent to the Management and Assignment Regulations of each registry and/or collaborating organizations, for the TLDs of domain names they choose, as well as the latest amendments/modifications to such. By registering domain names through the Company, the Customer confirms they have read and have consented to the terms and conditions provided for each registry and / or collaborating organizations, for the management and assignment of TLDs.
Further regulatory texts can be found here.
5.3 The Company completes the submission for a Customer after payment is confirmed. The Company bears no responsibility should during, before, or after the Customer’s order is concluded, the domain name chosen has been claimed by someone else. If such a thing happens, the Customer may either search for and claim another domain or request the payment to be reverted.
.COM, .NET, .ORG, .INFO, etc. domain names (except .GR and .EU) that have been renewed within 45 days in their existing registrar are not renewed for one additional year after their transfer to the Company, as expected.
5.4 The Customer accepts the Registrant’s Rights and Obligations as displayed on the official ICANN site.
5.5 Transactions concerning domain names (renewal, owner change, registrar change etc.) are considered carried out with confirmation of payment from the Company’s accounting department. From that point on, the Customer acknowledges they lose the right of withdrawal and money restitution. Exceptions are new domain name submissions, for which the withdrawal and money restitution right remains with the Customer as long as it is requested on time and the withdrawal is concluded within 5 calendar days from the initial confirmation of payment. Due to that small-time interval, the Customer is responsible, beyond the sending of a written request (through email) to also verify with the Company via phone their request for withdrawals, for such to be concluded on time. After 5 calendar days, no money shall be returned.
If during the domain name register order the Customer gained for free some other domain name or other combined service offer for which the right of money restitution is not valid, then the submission product sales offer cost is subtracted from the amount returned to Customer, according to the catalog valid at that time in the Company website.
Should the domain name be canceled within the deadline, the money is returned in credit form into the account of the same Customer and may be used in following registers. The Company sends the Customer an email informing of such to move into registering a new domain name according to the consultant’s suggestions.
Special terms for .GR domain names
5.6 The Customer agrees to not move towards repeated unpaid registering orders of the same .GR domain name, binding such the particular domain name through the registry.
5.7 The Customer should have concluded all their financial obligations against the previous registry, in regards to the domain name they are requesting a registry change for.
5.8 If the Customer chooses the checking requests service and the Company consultant finds the domain name does not fulfill the conditions to be approved from EETT the domain name will be automatically canceled from the Company staff.
5.9 Should the Company consultant finds the domain name does fulfill the conditions to be approved by EETT, but ultimately is not, then the money is refunded to the Customer in credit form or cash.
When a domain name expires, in most scenarios, it is put into a ‘quarantine’ situation in which only the designated owner has the right to renew it. The Customer may be informed for domain name’s quarantine duration from the Company pricelist page, or through communication with the Support Department of the Company. If a quarantine period is not implemented, the domain name either directly goes into a redemption period (5.12) or gets deleted according to the regulations of each registry.
5.10 Domain Redemption
After the quarantine period resolves, or directly after the domain name expires (should there not be a quarantine period) the domain name is deleted and it enters into a redemption period lasting about 40 days. The Customer should and can be informed for the duration of such period of a domain name in communication with the Company’s Support Department. See term 5.12 for renewal from redemption.
The Company cannot guarantee the renewal of a domain name from redemption, hence it is suggested the Customer renews their domain name in time, before it expires.
5.11 Renewal of an expired domain
The cost of renewal from quarantine remains the same as the cost for such before the domain expires. For renewal of a domain name from redemption, a redemption fee is added to the cost, varying depending on the resolution and on each occasion, the Customer should communicate with the Company’s Support Department to be informed of the total cost of renewal from redemption for the domain name they are interested in. The Customer acknowledges that the redemption period as well as the renewal fee vary according to the TLD and it is their responsibility to be aware of a registry’s particular terms for domain names in their possession.
5.12 Delete and Restore Domain
A domain name can be deleted for other reasons beyond its expiration, such as submission of false owner data or the WHOIS / owner data had not been confirmed to the registry within 10 days. After 10 days and in case of the requisite data not having been sent forward, the registry has the right to delete the domain name. In this case, the domain name enters Registrar Hold (or Client Hold) status, ceases its operation and can not be transferred until the registrant sends out accurate and up-to-date WHOIS data. The domain name owner must send official documents for the confirmation of the authenticity of their data (for example ID or passport) so as for a domain name to be restored from the registry.
In particular, in cases of illegal or unauthorized activity, the Registrar reserves the right to terminate the operation (Registrar Hold or Client Hold) and to delete a domain name even after confirming the owner’s details.
5.13 For already-registered domains, the transfer takes place automatically at the next renewal. The transfer is completed within 10 (or 15) days after the date of the renewal order of the domain and then the renewal is completed. Attention: The Customer may receive an email directly from ICANN asking them to confirm their details via a link to complete the transfer and renewal. No change of nameservers can be made during the 10 (or 15) days. Registrar change in the domain can be done normally, 60 days after the renewal.
5.14 As noted in the ICANN Transfer Policy, the domain owner explicitly authorizes the Company or the Company’s partners when deemed necessary, to act as designated agents to approve the changing of owner data for their account.
6.1 The Customer accepts not to use the Company’s internet space, the services it offers and its servers for:
6.2 The Company has the power to reject, cut off the provision of service or delete content funneled on the provided server, should this content be against any legislature in regards to copyright, is copied, is of pornographic, racist or piratical nature (hacking, pirate software, warez sites, serial numbers), concerns the narcotics trade, the effort of illegal penetration on a PC or is against any other law. In such scenarios, the Company has the right, without warning to immediately disable the account and its access to the site through the internet without any responsibility for damages that may be incurred on the Customer or third parties. In addition, it notifies the Customer to remove such a content. Should the Customer not immediately take heed, the Company has the right to completely delete their account.
6.3 The Company follows a very strict policy in regards to spam emails and can cancel the Customer account in the case of sending improper / undesired mass emails (spam mail). An email is spam when sent including recipients who did not ask to get such.
The Customer agrees to not send any of the following kinds of email:
The Company retains the right to decide if a Customer actions is considered spam, mail bombing or bulk email.
6.4 The Company has the right of restricting the volume of messages sent or received from the users, in order for the quality of email services to be maintained to other members and the safeguarding of its systems.

Hosting service analysis, mechanisms, and management
6.10 Hosting: In our company, when we refer to the hosting service, we always mean the hosting of your data (e.g. website and database) and your mailbox on a shared server, i.e. a server that hosts multiple of our clients (so you will not be the only one hosted by him). Our shared servers have security mechanisms for your secure hosting, without affecting each other. Always guided by the cost and the correct service of our customers, we recommend the hosting on our shared servers and we guarantee the safe operation of our services. However, in case it is deemed necessary by us or if the client himself requests his hosting on a server that will operate only on his behalf, then the client is informed about the possibility of moving to a private server as well as its characteristics. At our Company we have hosting plans to meet every need. The hosting plans on our shared servers are always decided in cooperation with each customer and according to the particular needs and characteristics of their website.Υou can increase the features of your hosting package at any time by adding addons, such as extra storage space. For the cost of our hosting plans and add-ons, you can contact us at email@example.com or our company’s phone numbers.
6.11 Hosting add-ons: You can increase the features of your hosting package at any time by adding add-ons. Those addons are:
6.12 Over usage of hosting: In case your hosting exceeds its characteristics, none of its operations will stop at all. Features that can be overcome are monthly traffic or web storage. In this case, the servers inform us about the overuse and we perform a check in order to identify the exact feature that has been exceeded. If we feel you need to add an extra addon or perform any other change to your hosting, our customer service will let you know.
6.13 Server type: In our company, we provide hosting on Linux server with Apache web server (proxy Nginx) and PHP. The hosting management platform (panel) is Plesk.
6.14 Country of hosting: Our servers are located in Greece, Germany and the Netherlands, in the most famous and reliable datacenters in Europe. Our company, guided by the fastest response, as well as the speed of the website – web app, is the one that decides in which country your applications will be hosted.
6.15 Security mechanisms: On all shared servers and any hosting on them, we have mechanisms such as Cloudlinux, imunify360, and Cagefs for your best experience. These mechanisms prevent the “bad neighbor phenomenon”. This means that each host is not affected by any other (e.g. in case of malicious code invading from one host to another). In addition, the mechanisms allow each host to freeze specific server resources (processor, memory, concurrent connections, disk drive) so that it does not affect the performance of other web applications hosted on the same server. The imunify360 mechanism works as a firewall and protects the guests from various types of attacks (brute force attack, DoS attack, etc.), from attacks on known cms (WordPress, Magento, Joomla, etc.) as well as from malware.
6.16 Actions in case of hacking: Our company, after realizing or being informed about the hacking of the data hosted on your host, e.g. on the website, will act in the following ways:
6.17 Upgrades – server maintenance: Our servers are regularly upgraded, as well as maintenance, but also changes in the programs that run on them. In case the upgrade (e.g. increase in the number of processors) or update of server programs is planned then you will be informed by email about the day and time of the tasks and the possible downtime time. However, there are cases in which such work should be done immediately, in order to solve problems. Then, there is no time available to be informed, but you should know that we will make every effort in order to have the least downtime of your hosting.
6.18 Disaster condition: Disaster condition means the collapse of machinery mainly due to the infrastructure of the Datacenter or hardware failure of physical machinery. They are usually situations in which we cannot intervene and provide solutions, only the data center itself, for example, a problem in our hardware server or in the hardware of the data center itself. In such cases, we will be in contact with the data center and we will push for the fastest possible resolution of the issue and then inform our customers. Of course, for the best hosting experience of our customers and to avoid, as much as possible such situations, we rent the best and most expensive solutions of machines and mechanisms in the data centers with which we work.
6.19 Server administration: The staff of our company, the data centers themselves, as well as the hired server administration third companies, are responsible for the management of the software of our company’s servers, in order to solve problems in them as soon as possible.
6.20 Backup: For the greatest security of your hosting data (files, mailbox, and databases), our company saves once a day, during night hours, an additional backup (incremental backup). It stores the daily changes (new files, modifications) made up to the time of the backup. Also, it performs once a month, a complete backup that includes all the files located on the server. Our company allows you to recover files in depth for up to 1 year. The backups are stored in a fileserver, within the infrastructure of our company, and at the same time in a cloud backup storage of a third company for data security. Finally, for the security of our servers from any catastrophic event (datacenter, hardware failure, etc.) and the fastest possible recovery of our servers, we get a daily image of our servers in the most reliable cloud server backup service, “Acronis”. For the Backup of your emails, you should read below the section on IMAP and POP email control methods, as they play a key role in the emails that are on the server and their retrieval.
Email service description and analysis:
6.21 IMAP and POP: These are two methods of accessing email. IMAP is the recommended method for controlling e-mail across multiple devices.
6.22 POP: By setting up your mailbox in the mail client (e.g. Outlook, Thunderbird, etc.) you are using, you will receive all your emails in your mail client (copy). In case you have selected the deletion setting after X days after you receive them in your local mail client or if you have deleted them from your deleted ones, they will also be deleted from the mail server. This way you will save money, ensuring enough space in your mailbox. You will also have a backup of your emails locally on your mail client (the backup of your emails is your obligation to maintain it properly, in your own terminal – mail client). You can find out more about this protocol here.
6.23 IMAP: Setting up your mailbox in this way is like viewing and operating directly through the mail server, i.e. you do not work with copies on your terminal, such as POP3. For example, if you receive a mail and delete it, it will be deleted directly from the server. But if you create a folder on your mail client to pass and organize some mail, this folder will be created on the mail server (unlike POP3). This means that if another user configures the mailbox itself in another terminal with IMAP, then the folders and organization that you created will be displayed. More information about the IMAP protocol can be found here.
6.24 Email protection: On our shared servers, there are leased programs for maximum protection of incoming and outgoing emails, both from spam and from possible viruses that they may contain. The control and security mentioned above are done by mechanisms, to ensure the greatest chances of security. We urge you to use genuine email clients and to update them frequently but also to carry out careful checks of your inbox, as well as for your responsible actions with their content. Our customer and its users are defined as solely responsible for protecting them from any malicious action coming through incoming or outgoing e-mail communications.
6.25 Log: For each email, whether incoming or outgoing, we can perform the necessary research to find out through our systems, if the email was received or passed through our server. In case it has been cut from our server, we find the cause immediately. Attention: the logs we keep are from the last 7 days.
6.26 Webmail: It is a service – online program, which works through all browsers (Mozilla, Chrome, Safari, etc.) and exists for all the mailboxes of the customers we host. After first logging in to webmail.yourdomain.com and filling in the user fields with all your mailbox, such as e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org and its password, you can view and manage your mailbox directly from any terminal you want, without having any local mail client. Besides, you can view your incoming emails as well as reply, send, or even forward emails. In short, it is a fully functional online mail client. Attention: webmail works with IMAP protocol, ie it sees the mail server directly.
6.27 Mail Clients: These are programs that are installed on users’ terminals (desktop or mobile). Regarding the proper operation of mail clients, you should know that our company provides you with the mail server service and is not defined as responsible for IT support, for their setup and proper operation. Your IT service provider is responsible for the proper operation of your local programs and terminals (software or hardware). Our Company helps informatively through its support, for the correct configuration of your mail clients.
6.28 Outgoing Certifications: Our shared servers and each mailbox are configured to have all the necessary certifications (SPF, PTR, Reverse DNS, Dkim, Dmarc) and the rules to send your emails with the highest success rate of receipt from the recipient.
6.29 Incoming Exceptions: In case the sender is a known partner of yours, who cannot send you an email because they are cut from our server, you can request our Company, to exclude the specific domain or mailbox, in order to circumvent the rules and receive emails from this partner.
6.30 IP: All our domain – clients, send emails from some shared IP of the hosted server. In case you want to have a dedicated IP for your domain for blacklisting reasons, you should either have your own VPS server or dedicated or apply for your own dedicated IP in shared hosting (this is not always possible and there is a possibility that cancels your request due to global shortage of ipv4 IP).
6.31 Blacklists: They are online lists, which work with various methods (traps, information from users, etc.) gathering potential spammers. Our servers for the incoming emails check some of them and in case the sender is in it, his emails will not be delivered to the specific server. There are several such lists, some very important and some less so. There is also a possibility that the IP you host will be included in a blacklist under the responsibility of a third party user – domain that sends from the same shared IP. In our shared servers, we have methods – automation to prevent and stop such attempts (spamming) through our servers. It is not always possible to stop this in time. Spamming may even be attempted by you, unwittingly and your mailbox trying to send spam emails that have nothing to do with you.
Common causes that can occur are:
In all cases, our company will try to stop this malicious action in the following ways:
In case the problem was the password, you may be asked not to pass the passwords to the terminals of your mail client, because they will be responsible for sending spam and at the same time you will be asked to completely clean the terminals that have in the mailbox from your IT.
6.32 After blacklist actions: In case the IP of the server you are on is found on a blacklist, our company starts the update process with a request to the blacklist providers, after first securing the server and preventing malicious action.
There are many different blacklists from which you can exit in different ways and at times. Some examples are:
Once the request is accepted, it will take approximately 24 hours for all servers to submit to these blacklists to be notified. Once the spread is complete, your emails will be delivered normally.
6.33 How we perceive malware for the purpose of prevention or when blacklisting actions begin:
Our company starts the prevention or deletion procedures from the blacklists when:
6.34 Server replies: If for any reason the server mechanisms interrupt an incoming email, then a reply email is automatically sent to the sender with the exact reason why the email did not reach the recipient. The recipient’s server is responsible for sending corresponding responses. In case the recipient’s server sends you a reply, you can forward it to our support department at email@example.com so that we can identify the reason why it was not delivered.
Common causes are:
6.35 Limit in Mb sending mail: The limit in megabytes that your mailbox can send, but also the limit in megabytes that your partners can send you, is 25Mb per email. In case you want to send to a client a file larger than 10Mb, we suggest you to send it with web file transferring providers, such as wetransfer.com, dropbox, google drive, onedrive, etc.
6.36 Number of emails: Another limit of emails, which exists for the security and reputation of your mailbox, but also of the mail server, is the number of emails that can be sent. The limit is 200 mails per hour per mailbox.
6.37 Newsletter: If you try to send a bulk newsletter from your mailbox to our servers, through any program local or online, then up to 200 mails will be sent which is the limit per hour for each mailbox. If you try to submit more, your ad campaign will fail. If you have the “Newsletter” service and the emails are configured to be sent through our server and not from another provider, such as Mailchimp, then we recommend and if you accept it, the lease of a different domain from your main one (eg yourdomain-news.com).
6.38 Request delivery of access to your hosting management zone
At the request of the customer, our Company can deliver passwords for the hosting panel (shared or dedicated), with which it automatically gains access to the entire hosting (databases, files, mailbox, etc.). In order to ensure the proper operation of the hosting but also to avoid handling errors by the customer or its users, the delivery of this access will take place only after confirmation of the request through a mailbox of the applicant known to our company with attached and signed relevant form which is first sent by our Company to be signed by the customer. By delivering the codes, our Company does not take as its fault any damages or malfunctions that will occur on the website and in the hosting through the fault of the customer. At the same time, the customer automatically accepts explicitly that in any case where the contribution of our Company is required and for any work, there will be a corresponding charge based on the current billing price list per working hour while in case of active support package the corresponding working time will be deducted.
Guarantee application process
6.39 The Company makes every possible attempt in keeping the hosted website’s content available for access from around the world, at any time. The interruption service time is defined as the loss of all plans from Company services towards the backbone network providers. The Company makes every possible attempt in maintaining the average loss of availability rate of webserver services or database servers to a rate of 0,1% or less, during one calendar month, as defined by the Company.Should the webserver or database server of a shared hosting plan on which the website is hosted, is available less than 99.9% of the time within a calendar year, the Company credits the Customer’s hosting account with a free hosting period of one month.
