Frequently Asked Questions
Things You Might Want To Know Before Working With
To begin working with Visceral Concepts on your project, you would need to answer a few questions about your company, your current situation, and your current needs regarding the nature of what you want to be done.
There’s no need to bring any specific information with you to a consultation, as we won’t be running credit checks or asking for detailed company history.
In most cases, after a consultation, you’ll need to fill out a questionnaire, accept an estimate, sign an agreement, and place a non-refundable down payment.
While it is the policy of many website developers to require expensive long-term maintenance contracts, we don’t.
We don’t believe in forcing our clients to sign a long-term website maintenance contract in order to have their site built. We want our clients to have the products and packages that are right for them. So, while we offer a generously inexpensive maintenance contract, we don’t require that any of our clients sign up for it.
We never ask for social security numbers, tin numbers, bank account information, or any other sensitive data for our records.
All credit card payments are processed through Stripe. Your credit card information is neither read nor stored by our servers.
We do not sell or share your email addresses or any other data that we collect. However, some site activities are tracked by 3rd party services like Facebook.
Turnaround time on a project varies on a project-by-project basis.
