3. Scope of Accelera

Accelera’s goal is to make WordPress websites faster by providing solutions and services that allow you to improve your website speed on your own or by letting us handle the optimization for you.

4. Services

Our service is provided by Gerard Blanco and, sometimes, more WordPress specialists. We provide the following Services through the Website:

  • Website Speed-Up Audit: We audit the client’s website, build a list of tasks that can make the site faster, and create from it 3 actionable reports for the User.
    • Website report
    • Plugins report
    • Database report
  • Complete Speed Optimization: Our specialists will do a Complete Speed Optimization by implementing the 3 reports from the Website Speed-Up Audit. We may recommend changing the hosting provider, changing the WordPress theme or other design changes; those are tasks not included in the optimization.
  • Autoptimize Expert Configuration: Our specialists will configure the WordPress plugin Autoptimize in the best way possible for the client’s website.

5. Costs, payments and refunds

5.1. Fees

The fees for the Services are provided on the Website.

5.2. Billing

The payments for our Services can be made using our payment processor: Sumit.

5.3. Price matching

This website does not currently support Price Matching.

5.4. Refund policy

We are confident we can make any website significantly faster with our services and will validate that by comparing the pre-implementation & post-implementation Core Web Vitals as measured by PageSpeed Insights, WebPageTest or GTmetrix.

If at project delivery we do not succeed in providing that improvement, you will get your money back on the following conditions:

  • Your site was running the latest version of WordPress with all installed plugins and themes up to date at project start.
  • Your site was not broken (e.g. rendering issues, incompatibilities, errors and anomalies of any kind, etc.) at project start.
  • No development work was done by you or third-parties (content edition is permitted) during the project.
  • All technical changes proposed by us as part of the performance optimization were implemented (i.e. you did not refuse technical changes including the use of paid-for third-party services/products that are an inherent part of our service).
  • You made no changes to your site configuration and specifically the performance-related settings made in scope of the project.

Said money-back guarantee as well as its conditions also apply to the Autoptimize Expert Configuration and Complete Speed Optimization services.

Early termination or project cancellation by you does not entitle you to a refund if the service has already started. The 14-day “cooling off” period for consumers in the EU (as stipulated in the “EU Directive on consumer rights” and implemented in local law in member states) does not apply if the service has already started. Payment of the service and the subsequent exchange of credentials (username and password to access your site) is considered to be the confirmation the service can be started at our own discretion; you agree that no further explicit confirmation is required from you.
