If the new services require more time outside of this agreement, the emailed invoice will reflect the updated cost of the entire project.

Timeline

I know you are excited to receive your final product, and I don’t want to leave you waiting any longer than you have to. I will roll up my sleeves and get work on the agreed upon date and continue until the satisfactory completion of the project. This means that I won’t throw in the towel in until the design I develop for you is performing exactly as agreed upon. I do not offer hard deadlines for my services, as they differ from various levels of complexity, technical requirements and over scope of priority. Every project will be assigned a specific turnaround estimate.

Intellectual Property

The original project documents, rough drafts, concepts, and research notes that are generated throughout the term of the project are property of Michael Crowne and can be transferred to you "The Client" with assigned paperwork and the appropriate fee added to your project. You "The Client" guarantee that you have the legal right to all elements of text, photographs, and anything else that you provide to me and that you will not hold me responsible for any third-party claims.

Confidentiality

Your secrets are safe with me. This includes your proprietary information (things like trade secrets, know-how, financial information or any other confidential information that is not publicly available). I promise I won’t sell your proprietary information to a third-party, no matter how much they offer me.

Assignment

The Parties may not assign the responsibilities that they have under this agreement to anyone else unless both Parties agree to the assignment in writing.

Termination

I would really hate to see you go. If you decide our work relationship isn’t your cup of coffee (or wine), I can end this agreement by giving us a ten (10) day written notice and refunding a portion (25%) of the service deposit from which I have collected from uncompleted works. This refund is void after “Link Preview” phase has been completed. Note: This is a hands-on, custom project that takes time to fulfill. My hopes in solving any unsatisfied requests will be pursued to avoid such resolutions.


If either Party fails to follow through with their responsibilities or obligations under this agreement, the other Party can end this agreement by giving a ten (10) day written notice.


This agreement will automatically terminate when both "Parties" have performed all obligations under the agreement and all payments have been made.

Limitation of Liability

Your liability to me is only for the cost’s payable under this agreement. You will not be liable to me, or any third-party, for damages like lost profits, lost savings, incidental damages, consequential damages, or special damages.

Dispute Resolution

  • Negotiation: We want to work this out. In the event of a dispute, the Parties agree to work towards a resolution through good faith negotiation.

 

  • Mediation/Arbitration: If talking it over doesn’t go well, either Party may initiate mediation or binding arbitration in a forum mutually agreed to by the Parties.

 

  • Litigation: If litigation is necessary, this agreement will be interpreted based on the laws of the State of (Georgia), regardless of any conflict of law issues that may arises. The Parties agree that the dispute will be resolved at a court of competent jurisdiction in the agreed upon State.

 

  • Attorney’s Fees: The prevailing party, or “winner” as non-lawyers call it, will be able to recover its attorney’s fees and other reasonable costs for a dispute resolved by binding arbitration or litigation.

Complete Contract
