Intellectual Property

For a content-only website

  • You own the design, content, and any other data such as analytics and customer information. We won’t use your data for any purpose other than running your website - we won’t steal your customer database, spam anyone, or sell your data to anyone. The only exception is that we ask clients to allow us to show off our work for promotional purposes such as adverts, trade shows, and on social media.
  • Switchplane owns the technical platform used to run the website. The reason for this is that there are a lot of behind-the-scenes technologies and systems used to build and operate the website. This includes resources like common stylesheets and library code which are shared across every website we run, plus software such as Linux and MySQL.

For large websites and apps

We deal with these on a case-by-case basis. It’s much more complicated due to the amount of technology involved, and typically there are other sources of technology which need to be separately licensed, etc.
