This document is intended to outline the general professional services agreement between me and my client.
Trademarks, servicemarks, and copywritten material provided by the client to me for use in the project remain the property of the client. I will not use these materials for any purpose other than the project without the express written consent of the client. The client grants me the right to use these materials for the purpose of completing the project.
Extent of Work
Work is limited to the scope of the project as outlined in the project quote. Any work outside of the scope of the project will be billed at an hourly rate following explicit written approval from the client and me.
I reserve the right to cancel the project at any time for any reason. In the event of cancellation, the client will be fully refunded and any progress will be turned over to the client. If the client cancels the project, the client will be refunded for any work not completed at the time of cancellation. This will be determined based on the estimated time remaining to complete the project.
Payment schemes will be outlined in the project quote. If no payment scheme is selected, 20% is due on project start, and 80% on project completion. All payments are due within 30 days of invoice. If payment is not received within 30 days, a late fee of 10% will be applied to the invoice.
Damages and Liability
I am not liable for any damages or losses incurred by the client as a result of the project. This includes but is not limited to loss of revenue, loss of data, loss of reputation, and loss of business. I am not liable for any loss of data or loss of service as a result of a security breach. I am not liable for any damages or losses incurred by the client as a result of a security breach. The client indemnifies me against any claims, losses, or damages arising from the client's use of the project.
I will always do my best to resolve any disputes with the client. If we are unable to resolve a dispute, all disputes between me and the client will be settled by arbitration in the state of Texas. The client agrees to pay all legal fees incurred by me and themselves in an arbitration proceeding. The client and I agree to abide by the decision of the arbitrator.
Third Party Services
All third party services used in the project are subject to their own terms and conditions.
