Deliverables and Support
As Apptelic works on a work for hire basis all development is warranted until up and including the delivery date. Apptelic provides 30 days technical support to resolve any critical issues and/or bugfixes. Thereafter the customer / client can elect Annual Support which is a billable service. Whilst under Annual Support customers will have access to discounted development rates and guaranteed response and resolution times.
Apptelic provides 3rd Line (tier) Support in the 30 days included support, which does not include any end user support and/or any new development. The 30 days included support starts from the delivery date of the software / app. Subsequent deliveries or upgrades to the software / app with a development cost that exceeds £5K per month will be given a further 30 days included support.
If more than 60 days has lapsed from software / app delivery date Apptelic is under no obligation to provide annual support, even if an offer of annual support had been previously extended to a customer. Annual Support terms and conditions, and pricing are at the sole discretion of Apptelic.
Should a customer be late on any payments for whatever reason, Apptelic is within its right to withhold future deliverables of associated releases of software / app(s).

Notwithstanding any of the above, the only right Apptelic retains is know how rights learned from the development so that it can gain other work and/or employment.
