Website Ownership Rights

 Website Ownership Rights

Some web companies retain full ownership rights to your website and domain name, even after you paid for those services. Mann Print & Design tries to give our clients as much ownership of their website as possible.

If we register a domain on your behalf, you are the administrator and registrant of the domain. That means it is yours, not ours. Many other web companies will place their own contact information on the domain’s administration and registrant fields. This means they technically own that domain.

When Mann Print & Design designs websites, we release all rights to you for the graphic work we did on the site. The code we develop is not quite yours, however. We have the right to use that code we develop for you on other sites, unless you specify otherwise.

Sometimes third-party scripts are necessary to enhance features of your site, such as drop-down menus or slide-show banners. These scripts are usually general use licenses but must maintain a copyright notice from the script’s author. In this case the script doesn’t belong to either of us, but we have rights to use the script on your site.
