The flowchart is indicative but is a helpful guide to the way we provide and develop and design a hosted website with you. There are timelines for design and development that apply under this agreement (see clause B3.3.8) and these are set out in the flowchart. You must provide information in the form of textual content and imagery in order for Local Directories to execute the website in a timely and efficient way without incurring unnecessary additional costs. You should note that there are approval points noted in the timelines, where deemed approvals can occur if we have not received information or notifications from you and where as a result, Charges can be incurred by you.
3.4 Website Design Phase
With help and input from you, Localsearch Web will design and develop the website. You may submit Customer Content to Localsearch Web by logging onto your account at www.ldweb.com.au, by emailing Localsearch Web at email@example.com, or by phone on 1300 25 6225 between 8:30am and 5:30pm (AEST).
In submitting Customer Content if you provide links to sample sites you like this is for general information purposes only and to assist Localsearch Web with the design of your website. The functionality and detail of the sample sites will not be duplicated unless such functionality and detail are specifically requested and such duplication does not infringe upon the intellectual property rights of others. Localsearch Web will not be held liable for accuracy of information, typos, or spelling errors in any of the Customer Content approved by you and published on the website.
Once Localsearch Web receives the Customer Content including any imagery from you, the website design and content proofs will be developed by us. Upon completion of the design and content proofs, Localsearch Web will provide you with an email so that you can access and review the website design and content proofs. If you consider any changes are necessary, you should contact localsearch. In this Website Design Phase, you may request two (2) Structural Changes. Localsearch Web will make all necessary consequential changes and you will be reissued new design and content proofs to check and track the changes by email. If you require more than two (2) Structural Changes then those may, in our discretion, be deemed beyond the "reasonable amount of consultation" and result in additional charges to you.
Once approval of the design and content proofs is gained from you or is deemed to have been obtained in accordance with this Agreement, the construction phase of your website will begin.

3.7 Completion Timeframes
You understand, agree, and acknowledge that Localsearch Web does not guarantee a time frame for completion of ANY website. This is in part because it is difficult to complete a website without design involvement, approvals and participation coming in a timely and efficient way from you. In addition, if you continue to submit additional content throughout the development process, or request additional modifications to the site design, the completion time frame is increased. Other factors that may influence the completion date of a website include, but are not limited to, complexity of your project(s), availability of Localsearch Web personnel, payment status of your account, etc.

You are responsible for reviewing all design and content proofs upon localsearch' request for approval. You understand and agree if you do not respond after 21 days to localsearch' request, your website will be designed, constructed and taken live using a generic "Coming Soon" website design template.
