Training and Support
We love to hand clients the “keys” to their website so that they can change the slideshow, make blog posts, and keep the content up to date. We can teach you in person, through screen sharing, or by making guides specific to your website. If you are super busy person and dont have the time or the staff to make changes to your own website, we will be happy to make changes and additions for you.
We provide updates for all the websites and web apps we create and host. Updates include upgrading the underlying web development frameworks that power your website whenever they are released. Sometimes by updating the underlying framework additional softwares that make your site or app function, such as the ecommerce system, may also need to be updated to remain secure and compatible. We consider these mandatory updates and therefore they are included in our monthly hosting fees.
We host our websites and web apps on WPEngine. They provide professional ‘managed hosting’ which means they handle web page compression, loading optimizations, content delivery networks, mirroring, and security. Please contact us or WPengine for more details about hosting. If you already have a hosting account or prefer to host with a different company, we will accommodate your needs.
Changes and Additions
For changes to your website please contact us to discuss. Before commencing with any changes, we will itemize the tasks you request, review your current website, and then provide you with a preliminary estimate. For major additions and changes to your website’s functionality, we will need to have a discussion, then write a proposal with ballpark figures and have a follow up discussion, before calculating a preliminary estimate. Any variability in our estimates will be attributed to specific unknowns, which in some cases you may be able to help mitigate. For example, in some cases, a rather subjective task, such as acquiring photography by selecting and purchasing stock images, could be handled by you or your staff if desired.
Backups and Security
We host all of our websites and apps on WPengine. They make daily backups of each website and take numerous steps to make sure your web system is as secure as possible. They also provide a high level of security through their partnerships with companies like CloudFlare Inc. Through partnerships and subscriptions, WPengine maintains collective blacklist of hacker IP Addresses, which prevents many perpetrators from even communicating with your server. WPengine hosts mirrored copies of your website at different server location, so if there is ever a network (infrastructure) disruption, your site won’t go down. WPengine provides fabulous phone support and they are very transparent about any potential issues that they are experiencing upstream, downstream, or internally. Please contact us to learn about the other measures Dispensary Webapps and WPengine takes to secure your web system.

Frequently Asked Questions
Warranty and Refund Policy
This warranty however is invalidated if you have additional work performed on your website by other people or companies.
This means that you cannot sell their work in isolation (ie you can sell your website but you cannot just sell the stock slide show image.) For our clients with ecommerce websites, some of the additional softwares (such as a UPS shipping calculator or Quickbooks Integration) require software licenses to update.
Therefore, if we do not host your website you will need to buy your own licenses to eventually update the softwares powering your website.
HIPAA Compliance Security
If you are storing patient information, detailed access logs to this info must be kept for at least 3 years. Now, don’t get too worried- for most dispensary websites HIPAA does not apply.
For example, if a visitor to your website searches in your search bar for a symptom, to see whether marijuana may be an appropriate medication, the search query is not directly tied to the patient’s name. (Their search is, however, tied to their IP address, so having an SSL certificate to authenticate and encrypt communication with your websites server is a good idea. )
Please, contact us to discuss whether your current web system is compliant.
