The terms and conditions in this Contract shall apply to and are automatically incorporated in all quotations, orders, agreements and contracts for goods.

No addition to or modification of this Contract will be accepted by or binding upon the Service Provider unless consented to in writing and signed by an authorised representative of the Service Provider (such consent may be withheld by the Service Provider at its sole and absolute discretion). Any terms and conditions that may be proposed by the Customer (or which are contained in any document or instrument from the Customer) shall automatically be deemed to be objected to and rejected by the Service Provider unless so consented to by the Service Provider as stated above. This Contract shall take precedence, prevail, control and solely govern in all instances of any inconsistency between this Contract and any terms and conditions proposed by the Customer (or which are contained in any document or instrument from the Customer).

  1. Payment. The time within which the Customer is to pay for the said Design Services shall be the essence of this Contract. Under no circumstances shall the Customer be entitled to make any deduction or to withhold payment for any reason whatsoever. If the Customer fails to make payment when due or defaults in any way, the Service Provider (i) reserves the right to withdraw credit and thereby suspend or cancel performance under any or all of the Customer’s purchase order(s) to which the Design Services relate and/or (ii) reschedule such order(s) at the Service Provider’s sole discretion. Each fulfilment of such order(s) shall be separately invoiced and paid for without regard to other fulfilments.

  2. Service Fees. Service fees in respect of the Design Services (the “Service Fees”) are exclusive of all applicable taxes and all country, provincial, state or local import and export fees, custom duties, tariffs or other charges related to exporting and importing the products to which the Design Services relate. The Customer shall be fully responsible for presenting all related documentation to the relevant authorities and to the accuracy of the said documents.

    The Service Provider reserves the right to adjust the Service Fees as a result of any changes by the Customer to the requirements, specifications, or assumptions in relation to the Design Services and the Customer shall pay such increased Service Fees in accordance with the timelines stipulated on the Service Provider’s invoices.

  3. Delivery. Any timeline provided by the Service Provider is an estimate only but reasonable effort will be made to provide the Design Services according to schedule. The Customer agrees that delivery times may vary and that the Service Provider shall not be responsible or liable for any damages arising out of or related to any failure to deliver the Design Services within the timeline provided.

  1. Cancellation / Rescheduling. No order which has been accepted by the Service Provider may be cancelled or rescheduled by the Customer except with the agreement in writing of the Service Provider. If an order is cancelled or rescheduled after it has been accepted by the Service Provider, the Customer shall: (i) in the case of cancellation, pay the Service Provider a cancellation charge equivalent to [•]% of the Service Fees; and (ii) indemnify the Service Provider in full against all losses incurred by the Service Provider in relation to such cancellation or rescheduling, including but not limited to loss of profit, back charges from the Service Provider’s vendors, labour expended and all other expenses incurred by the Service Provider in relation to the Design Services.

    In the case of partial completion of an order, the Service Provider shall also be entitled to a quantum merit in respect of Design Services delivered without prejudice to any claim or right the Service Provider might otherwise make or exercise should non-completion be occasioned by the Customer.

  2. Insurance. At all times during the term of this Contract, the Customer shall be responsible for maintaining appropriate insurance coverage including, but not limited to, the following insurance coverages of appropriate amounts: (i) worker’s compensation and disability insurance coverage; (ii) commercial general liability insurance with coverage for bodily injury, property damage and personal and advertising injury; (iii) employers’ liability insurance; (iv) commercial automobile liability insurance.

    The Customer shall deliver duly issued certificates of insurance evidencing such coverage to the Service Provider upon request in writing from the Service Provider. The amount and coverage of such insurance will not limit the Customer’s liability nor relieve the Customer of any other obligation under this Contract.

    If the Customer fails to obtain or maintain any of the foregoing insurance coverages, it will assume and hereby assumes liability and risk for, and indemnifies the Service Provider against, any and all damages, demands, claims, losses, actions, liabilities, lawsuits, judgments, and expenses (including without limitation, reasonable attorney’s fees and expenses) to the extent that same would have been covered as if the foregoing insurance coverage had been obtained and maintained.
