The Client agrees to pay for services by the Company’s rate schedule. All charges for service and supplies provided are due and payable upon receipt of billing. A late charge of $10.00 or 5% per month (whichever is the greater) will be applied on any amounts outstanding beyond ten (10) days. The Company may suspend service at any time if the Client’s account remains outstanding beyond thirty (30) days.
The parties agree to provide each other with one clear calendar month of notice if they wish to cancel. A security deposit equivalent to the Client’s monthly package rate will be held on account and refunded within thirty (30) days of the account closing.
The Client acknowledges that final proofreading is the Client’s responsibility.
The Client acknowledges the Company’s business hours of 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, Pacific time, Monday to Friday except for statutory holidays. Any work requested outside of business hours or offsite from either the Company’s physical office or the Assistant’s remote place of work will require pre-approval from the Community Manager and may be subject to additional overtime or offsite rates, to be agreed upon in advance of the work by all parties.
The Client acknowledges that there is only one (1) user per package (except for the 40-hour package where two (2) users are permitted).
The Client acknowledges that any communication, correspondence, and revisions that occurred during the execution of work beyond the initial discovery and onboarding process will be counted towards the Client’s monthly package allotment. If all hours are used before the end of the month but the Client wishes the project to continue, the additional time will be charged at the standard hourly rate. The Company aims to acknowledge correspondence and instructions within one (1) business day after receipt. Based on the task and deadline requested, if work is deemed to be at a rush or express service level, the Company will advise the Client for pre-approval at the appropriate billing level.
The Client acknowledges that unused package hours per month are non-refundable, non-transferable, and non-cumulative.
The Client or any of its employees or affiliates agrees not to privately hire the services of any of the Company’s full-time, part-time or contract employees without the Company’s prior written consent. Should the Client or any of its employees or affiliates hire away any of the Company’s employees, the Client will be charged an agency and retraining fee of $30,000.00 per employee. This fee will be in effect during the contract and service period, as well as up to two years after the Client has left the service of the Company, and for up to two years after the employee has left the employ of the Company.
The Company accepts no liability for equipment failure, staff errors or omissions, or interruption of services due to areas beyond the Company’s control. In no event shall the Company’s aggregate liability arising out of or related to this Agreement, whether arising out of or related to breach of contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, exceed the total amount paid (or payable) to the Company pursuant to this Agreement in the preceding two months prior to the date on which the liability claimed by the Client is alleged to have arisen. The foregoing limitation shall apply even if the Client’s remedies under this Agreement fail in their essential purpose.
The Company reserves the right to refuse services should it be discovered that the request(s) is unlawful, unethical, unsafe, or deemed unattainable.
The Company will provide sixty (60) days’ notice for any rate increases.
