We deliver the "Managed Websites" service on monthly and on annual contracts. The prices displayed above show the monthly cost of any of HCE's four standard "Managed Websites" plans, contracted on annual basis. So, if you sign up for "Managed Website - Advanced", for example, you agree to use this service plan for 1 year and to pay HCE, for the the services we deliver over the course of the 12-month contract, the amount of €696 (12 months x €58). Although that we don't charge upfront for the "Managed Website" plans (with the only exception of "Managed Website - Basic", charged on annual basis at the amount of €348 /12 x €29/), you as a client must understand and agree that the pricing granted to the client who use the "Managed Website" plans on annual contract apply only to the specified contracted period.
In order to take advantage from the preferential Managed Website service rate available with the annual contracts, the client agrees to sign a Managed Website agreement and to leave their credit card on file with our online merchant processor.
We allow our clients to switch from an annual to a monthly contract at any time. However, if any client wants to transform their annual contract into a monthly one, HCE will go backwards and charge the difference in the hourly fee between annual and monthly contract rates, for all used service months by the client. It is €20 per month! So, if a client decides to transform their annual "Managed Website - Advanced" plan into monthly one, starting from the 4th service month, they will have to pay the amount of €60, which would be the difference between the managed service rates granted to monthly and annual services contracts.
