Please note that we are unable to sign documentation certifying that your site meets all legal accessibility requirements, as they vary from state to state and country to country, and rely on our clients adding content in fully accessible formats.
Continuous evolution: as we develop new sites, we often refine functionality or add new ways of solving problems. We make each new solution available to our other clients that have a similar need. Centralizing development gives us the ability to spend more money and time on a problem than any one client could afford to spend, and develop better and more refined features that can be provided on one-off CMS installations. Most reasonable website providers might not spend 10 hours to fix a small but annoying bug on your site, but we will, because it potentially affects hundreds of others.
Security patches and monthly updates: security updates and patches are applied immediately; standard updates are released on a monthly schedule. To get a sense of the cool features we release, see our release notes at digitaldeployment.com/releases.
Future-proof: we look ahead for events like “mobilegeddon” — the day Google started penalizing sites that were not mobile-friendly. Future penalties are expected for sites that load slowly and that do not use SSL (https), and we are constantly evolving the platform to meet such technical requirements before they are enforced.
One post-launch review: after your site goes live, your service agreement includes an in-depth review of your site by our content specialist and/or strategist. Additional reviews can be purchased for a fee.
Knowledge base: updates to our online knowledge base are included in your service-level agreement.

Liability. By enrolling in our SLA program, the Client accepts responsibility for the content it publishes on its website and agrees to monitor the site to ensure the content on the site is appropriate and does not pose a risk to the Client. In return, Digital Deployment accepts responsibility for maintaining the website infrastructure and will take reasonable measures to ensure that installed software is kept current, that security patches are applied in a timely manner, and that any problems with the website infrastructure are quickly resolved.
Termination and Reinstatement of SLA. Clients who wish to terminate their SLA may do so at any time with no cancellation fee. If the SLA is terminated, only 60 days of temporary website hosting will be provided while the client makes arrangements to transfer their site to a new hosting provider. Sites not on an SLA will not receive security updates or get regular backups, and may not be recoverable if compromised.
