RECITALS

The Client wishes to be provided with the Services (as quoted and/or invoiced) by the Service Provider and the Service Provider agrees to provide the Services to the Client under the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

1. Key Terms
1.1 Services

The Service Provider shall provide the services as stated on quote/invoice to the Client in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement:

This pertains to the services listed upon your quote and/or invoice concerning this project.


1.2 Delivery of the Services



a. Start Date: The Service Provider shall commence the provision of the Services as stated on invoice/quote.

b. Completion Date: The Service Provider shall complete the Services by the date stated on invoice/quote.


c. Key Dates: The Service Provider agrees to provide the specific parts of the Services at the specific dates as stated on invoice/quote.


d. Original Files: The Service Provider agrees to keep all original files on hand for a period not to exceed 6 months from final delivery date. If a Client requires these files after a 6-month period has passed, they can only be delivered if they have not already been deleted from our system. It is the Client's responsibility to request such files (if appropriate) and maintain backups of their own projects.


1.3 Site


The Service Provider shall provide the Services at the following site(s): Off Location.


1.4 Price



a. As consideration for the provision of the Services by the Service Provider, the price for the provision of the Services is as stated on quote/invoice.

b. The Client shall pay for extra time spent/services for any project that goes above/beyond the original scope of the project agreement as stated on invoice/quote.


1.5 Warranty



a. The Service Provider offers a 60-day limited warranty on original deliverables.

b. Warranty is null and void if deliverables have been worked on or edited by any other person(s) at any time after original delivery.


1.6 Payment



a. The Client agrees to pay a deposit according to the terms stated on the invoice/quote.

b. The Service Provider shall invoice the Client for the remaining balance upon project completion.


c. The Client shall pay such invoices within 10 days of their receipt from the Service Provider.


d. The method of payment of the Price by the Client to the Service Provider shall be by:


  1. PayPal to this e-mail address: payments@pc-limited.com
  2. MasterCard or Visa by phone: 719-200-9257
  3. Cashier's check or money order sent to the following address: Pace Computing Limited Inc., 7019 Cleveland Ct., Colorado Springs, CO 80911

e. Any charges payable under this Agreement are exclusive of any applicable taxes, tariff surcharges, or other like amounts assessed by any governmental entity arising as a result of the provision of the Services by the Service Provider to the Client under this Agreement, and such shall be payable by the Client to the Service Provider in addition to all other charges payable hereunder. Colorado state residents are subject to a 6.25% State Sales Tax.


f. Deposits received can be refunded within 30 days. Refunds are only given if WE fail to meet the Client's project requirements. Refunds will not be given for these reasons:


  1. Client changes project requirements mid-project and refuses to pay deposits for new work ordered.
  2. Client refuses to provide materials required to complete the project, such as photos, logos, etc., thus resulting in our inability to complete the project by the deadline.
  3. Client refuses to answer questions and other necessary correspondence in a timely manner, thus resulting in our inability to complete the project by the deadline.
  4. If this agreement for hire was arranged through an online marketplace, such as Elance.com, Guru.com, or other similar online marketplaces, and the Client refuses to correspond through that marketplace on any private message boards or shared workspace areas provided by that company, thus not allowing us to have a public record of our transactions, then the Client will not be granted a refund.


g. Deposits must be used within 30 days. A deposit is required just as much for setting aside time on our schedule as it is for a good faith payment. Your deposit is our salary while we are working on the first portion of the project. We are a small two-person team with very reasonable rates and we simply cannot operate successfully any other way. Therefore, if a client pays a deposit and then refuses to participate in that project by providing the necessary information, materials, and assets needed within a 30-day period, then the project will be cancelled and the deposit will not be refunded. If a client comes back after the 30-day period and wants to continue with the project, a new deposit will be required.

2. General Terms


2.1 Intellectual Property Rights


The Service Provider agrees to grant to the Client a nonexclusive, irrevocable, royalty-free license to use, modify, or copy the finished product specifically created for the Client as part of the Services; the Service Provider assigns the full title guarantee to the Client and any all of the copyright, other intellectual property rights, and any other data or material used or subsisting in the Material whether finished or unfinished. If any third-party intellectual property rights are used in the Material, the Service Provider shall ensure that it has secured all necessary consents and approvals to use such third-party intellectual property rights for the Service Provider and the Client. For the purposes of this Clause 2.1, "Material" shall mean the finished product, in whatever form, produced by the Service Provider pursuant to this Agreement. This does not include exclusive ownership of our original source code. Our source code may not be given away or sold to a third party, or reproduced and/or modified to make another similar product unless otherwise amended to this agreement. Pace Computing Limited Inc. will not be held responsible for copyright violations of images or other materials provided by the Client. These are implemented into the Client's Services on good faith that they have been obtained legally.


2.2 Credit


Pace Computing Limited Inc. requires all of our work to be given proper credit. We also reserve the right to post your project in our portfolio, resume, or other advertising media where the purpose is to promote our services. We will post our name, the service provided, and a link to our website on all projects possible. We are a small business, and this practice helps to ensure that we can prove to potential clients that we, in fact, did create the projects we claim we created. If our credit is removed from any of the projects created by us, then any associated warranty will be considered null and void. If you are a third party (outsourcer, etc.), then we are willing to discuss this portion of our TOS to come to an agreement to compensate us for lack of giving us our proper credit.


2.3 Warranty


The Service Provider represents and warrants that:
  1. it will perform the Services with reasonable care and skill; and
  2. the Services and the Materials provided by the Service Provider to the Client under this Agreement will not infringe or violate any intellectual property rights or other right of any third party.

2.4 Limitation of Liability



a. Subject to the Client’s obligation to pay the Price to the Service Provider, either party’s liability in contract, tort, or otherwise (including negligence) arising directly out of or in connection with this Agreement, or in the performance or observance of its obligations under this Agreement and every applicable part of it, shall be limited in aggregate to the Price.


b. To the extent it is lawful to exclude the following heads of loss, and subject to the Client’s obligation to pay the Price, in no event shall either party be liable for any loss of profits, goodwill, loss of business, loss of data, or any other indirect or consequential loss or damage whatsoever.


c. The Service Provider is not responsible for any losses related to any kind of hacking activity on the Client's website and/or server. The Service Provider will use reasonable care when installing sites and scripts on the server but, in most cases, cannot govern the level of security offered by that server so shall not be held responsible for any event associated with such activity.


d. Nothing in this Clause 2.4 will serve to limit or exclude either Party’s liability for death or personal injury arising from its own negligence.


2.5 Term and Termination



a. This Agreement shall be effective on the date hereof and shall continue, unless terminated sooner in accordance with Clause 2.5(b), until the Completion Date.


b. Either Party may terminate this Agreement upon notice in writing if:
  1. the other is in breach of any material obligation contained in this Agreement which is not remedied (if the same is capable of being remedied) within 30 days of written notice from the other Party so to do; or
  2. a voluntary arrangement is approved, a bankruptcy or an administration order is made, or a receiver or administrative receiver is appointed over any of the other Party's assets, or an undertaking or a resolution or petition to wind up the other Party is passed or presented (other than for the purposes of amalgamation or reconstruction), or any analogous procedure occurs in the country of incorporation of either party, or if any circumstances arise which entitle the Court or a creditor to appoint a receiver, administrative receiver or administrator or to present a winding-up petition or make a winding-up order in respect of the other Party; or
  3. if the Client cancels the agreement in violation of these terms, in which case a 10% cancellation fee of the total project quote will incur.



c. Any termination of this Agreement (howsoever occasioned) shall not affect any accrued rights or liabilities of either Party, nor shall it affect the coming into force or the continuance in force of any provision hereof which is expressly or by implication intended to come into or continue in force on or after such termination.


2.6 Relationship of the Parties


The Parties acknowledge and agree that the Services performed by the Service Provider, its employees, agents, or subcontractors shall be as an independent contractor and that nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to constitute a partnership, joint venture, work-for-hire agreement, agency relationship, or anything other than an independent-contractor agreement between the parties.


2.7 Confidentiality


Neither Party will use, copy, adapt, alter, or part with possession of any information of the other which is disclosed or otherwise comes into its possession under or in relation to this Agreement and which is of a confidential nature. This obligation will not apply to information which the recipient can prove was in its possession on the date it was received or obtained, or which the recipient obtains from some other person with good legal title to it, or which is in or comes into the public domain otherwise than through the default or negligence of the recipient, or which is independently developed by or for the recipient.


2.8 Notices


Any notice which may be given by a Party under this Agreement shall be deemed to have been duly delivered if delivered by hand, first class post, facsimile transmission, or electronic mail to the address of the other Party as specified in this Agreement or to any other address notified in writing to the other Party.

  • electronic mail, when the Party sends it to the e-mail address(es) provided at the beginning of this agreement.

c. Neither Party shall assign or transfer all or any part of its rights under this Agreement without the consent of the other Party.


d. The Printed and Signed Agreement may not be amended for any other reason without the prior written agreement of both Parties. The online version may be amended by the Service Provider and any new additions will affect Parties after the agreement change has been made.


e. This Agreement (along with appropriate invoices for price and specific terms per each project) will constitute the entire understanding between the Parties relating to the subject matter hereof unless any representation or warranty made about this Agreement was made fraudulently and, save as may be expressly referred to or referenced herein, supersedes all prior representations, writings, negotiations, or understandings with respect hereto.


f. Neither Party shall be liable for failure to perform or delay in performing any obligation under this Agreement if the failure or delay is caused by any circumstances beyond its reasonable control, including but not limited to acts of God, war, civil commotion, or industrial dispute. If such delay or failure continues for at least 14 days, the Party not affected by such delay or failure shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement by notice in writing to the other.


g. This Clause 2.9(g) and Clauses 2.2, 2.3, 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, and 2.9 of this Agreement shall survive any termination or expiration.
