Suite 100 Las Vegas, NV 89113 (“AGENCY”) and your company (“CLIENT”). This Agreement is effective as of the last date of signing by AGENCY and CLIENT.
The parties hereto agree as follows:
AGENCY agrees to provide the Services and/or Products accepted by CLIENT on the Project Summary section of the Proposal prepared specifically for CLIENT. The Project Summary is attached hereto as Exhibit 1 and incorporated by reference. If the parties agree to additional Services or Products are included, the terms of this Agreement shall be incorporated by reference into such agreement. Service refers to the initiation of processes for concept design, creation, implementation, hosting and approval by CLIENT of CLIENT’s website. Product refers to any property created by AGENCY for CLIENT. A description of each Service and Product included hereunder, including the specific items included or excluded for each, is included in the Proposal prepared for CLIENT, and such descriptions are specifically incorporated herein by reference.
The pricing for all Services and Products is listed on the Project Summary. (a) No work will commence until one half of the total for all Services and Products provided under this Agreement is paid and accepted as a deposit. The two remaining payments of 25% each will be due based on the due dates on project summary or 5 days before completion of the project, whichever comes first. No work will continue if the payment is outstanding. If the total amount due under this Agreement is less than $3000, the total amount due must be paid 100% in advance. (b) Retainers and monthly services are paid one month in advance and no work will be performed until payment is accepted.
Additional Services, including additional fixes and requests, will result in additional charges and will potentially postpone the finish date. Additional Services include: (a) updates or changes, which are provided at a rate of $150 hour, (b) printing costs, which is separate from all print design pieces, and (c) any other Service or Product not included in the Proposal. AGENCY has the right to change any of the monthly charges with a 30 day written notice of such a change to the CLIENT.
Any monthly charges listed on the Project Summary are based on a yearly contract.
In the event that any amount due AGENCY remains unpaid 15 days after presentation of an invoice to CLIENT, AGENCY, in its sole discretion, may immediately terminate this Agreement in accordance with the provisions of Paragraph 3 and/or withhold or suspend Services. Suspension of Service does not necessarily imply termination of this Agreement and service charges will continue to accrue as if no suspension had occurred. Reinstatement of a suspended or terminated Service requires a $300 reinstatement fee along with a 10% finance charge on the amount overdue. All taxes, fees and governmental charges relating to the Services or Products provided hereunder (other than income taxes of AGENCY) shall be paid by CLIENT. All payments are in U.S. currency, and are to be paid to AGENCY as follows:
Checks returned unpaid (NSF) are assessed a $200 charge.
The initial term of this Agreement (“Initial Term”) shall be one (1) year beginning on the date of this Agreement. After the Initial Term, unless otherwise agreed to by the parties, this Agreement shall automatically renew for successive terms of equal length as the Initial Term. CLIENT has 30 days following the expiration of the Initial Term to notify AGENCY in writing of CLIENT’s desire to terminate service with no termination cost related to the monthly fees to CLIENT and no liability to AGENCY. During any renewal, all terms and conditions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect. The Initial Term plus all successive renewal periods during which any Service is provided shall be collectively referred to as the “Term”.
AGENCY may terminate this Agreement as follows: (i) AGENCY may terminate, without cause, by giving CLIENT 15 days prior notice; any service not performed by AGENCY shall be credited to CLIENT, or (ii) AGENCY may terminate, at any time, upon 5 days prior notice if, in the sole judgment of AGENCY, CLIENT breaches any material provision of this Agreement and has not cured same by the end of the 5 days; or (iii) AGENCY may terminate at any time in the event of nonpayment by CLIENT.
Cancellation of services requires 30 days written notice from CLIENT’s next billing date. CLIENT may terminate this Agreement before expiration of the Term only if the following conditions are satisfied: (i) CLIENT provides 30 days written notice to AGENCY of its intent to terminate; and (ii) CLIENT pays AGENCY in full for all Services or Products delivered to CLIENT prior to the termination date; and (iii) CLIENT pays an early termination fee equal to 100% of all remaining Services and Products to be delivered to CLIENT during the Term of this Agreement.
