Virtually Bel (the Virtual Assistant) is a registered Data Protection Controller (ICO Reference: ZA760512).

Virtually Bel may obtain access to information related to Client’s business (including trade secrets, technical information, business forecasts and strategies, marketing plans, customer and supplier lists, personnel information, financial data, and proprietary information of third parties provided to the Client in confidence) that the Client considers to be confidential or proprietary or the Client has a duty to treat as confidential.

Virtually Bel will, unless having the written consent of the Client, (a) hold all Confidential Information in strict trust and confidence; (b) not use or permit others to use Confidential Information in any manner or for any purpose not expressly permitted or required by this Agreement; and (c) not disclose or permit others to disclose any Confidential Information to any third party without obtaining the Client’s express prior written consent on a case-by-case basis.


As consideration for the Services to be provided by Virtually Bel and other obligations, the Client shall pay to Virtually Bel the amounts specified in the Statement of Work.

  1. Expenses. Virtually Bel shall bill and the Client shall reimburse Virtually Bel for all reasonable and pre-approved out-of-pocket expenses that are incurred in connection with the performance of the Services.
  2. Invoicing. Virtually Bel will bill the Client after the execution of the Services specified in the Statement of Work. First-time clients may be invoiced 50% for payment in advance of either the estimate provided for the task or the first bill for retained services, whichever is applicable.
  3. Late payments. Payments not received by the due date will result in work cessation. Virtually Bel reserves the right to refuse completion or delivery of work until past due balances are paid. All materials or property belonging to the Client, as well as work performed, may be retained as security until all just claims against the Client are satisfied.
  4. In the event of collection enforcement, the Client shall be liable for any costs associated with such collection, including, but not limited to, legal costs, attorney’s fees, courts costs, and collection agency fees.

Office hours and communication 

Office hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Email is to be the primary form of communication between the Client and Service Provider. Virtually Bel is available for phone calls during office hours only.

Availability outside these hours cannot be guaranteed without agreement in advance, and work outside those availability hours can be subject to additional work surcharges.  


Virtually Bel takes UK bank holidays and the period from Christmas to New Year as holiday. Other holidays will be advised to the Client as applicable. Where appropriate, provisions shall be put in place to ensure continuity of service.


The Client will remain responsible for checking work and raise any general queries within 48 hours. General queries raised within this time will be amended free of charge. 

Virtually Bel will not be liable for any losses the Client might sustain arising directly or indirectly from completed work save in so far as the same arises directly from the Virtual Assistant’s negligence.

Virtually Bel will not be held responsible for any loss, damage or theft of documents, equipment or any items relating to tasks during transit to and from our premises.

Virtually Bel reserve the right to make any changes and corrections to these Terms.
