WHEREAS, the Client desires to retain Consultant to perform consulting, design and development services upon the terms, covenants, and conditions contained herein; and

WHEREAS, Consultant desires to become a consultant to the Client and is willing to execute this Agreement to establish in writing the terms and conditions related thereto.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of good and valuable consideration and of the mutual covenants and agreements hereinafter set forth, the Parties agree as follows:

  1. Consultant's Duties. In addition to any assumptions or obligations in a Statement of Work, that parties agree that:
  2. Consultant shall provide its services to the Client as the Client may reasonably require. Specifically, and without limitation, Consultant agrees to engage in activities and advisory activities on the matters pertaining to software development, website programming, and/or design work, whether more particularly described in statements of work (each of which is a "Statement of Work" or a "SOW") executed pursuant to Section 2 of this Agreement, or outside the scope of a SOW in accordance with Section 3 of this Agreement.
  3. Once an SOW is fully executed, Consultant shall make its best efforts to staff the team as quickly as possible. Client acknowledges that Consultant has staffing requirements for both ongoing and new work and that Consultant may need up to four (4) weeks from the date that a SOW is fully executed before the work therein is fully-staffed.
  4. The consulting services rendered by Consultant hereunder shall be provided by Consultant as an independent contractor, and not as an employee, partner, or joint venturer.
  5. Consultant shall be responsible for payment of the federal, state, and local taxes and the preparation of tax returns and reports related to the work more particularly described in any Statement of Work prepared in accord with Section 2 herein.
  6. Statement of Work. Before any Services shall commence under this Agreement Consultant and Client will agree to the terms of a SOW that describes the deliverables to be provided by consultant under that SOW (the "Deliverables"), details the fees for such work, and provides invoicing terms, and is signed by both Parties (each a "SOW"). Upon full execution of the SOW, each SOW shall become part of this Agreement. If the provisions of any SOW conflict with this agreement, then the terms of the SOW control.
  7. Services; Fees; Billing Disputes. Client shall pay all invoiced fees and approved expenses as provided in each applicable SOW. If Client disputes any amount invoiced, Client must give Consultant written notice describing the dispute in reasonable detail within 15 calendar days of the receipt of each invoice. If Client fails to raise a dispute within such timeframe, Client hereby agrees that the failure to timely dispute an invoice shall waive Client’s right to initiate a dispute at a later date.
  8. Client Obligations. In addition to any assumptions or obligations in a SOW, Client shall:
  9. timely provide all documents, information, designs, data, specifications, graphics, logos, trademarks, written content, and other materials to be provided by, or on behalf of, Client to be used by Consultant in connection with the preparation of, or incorporated into, the Deliverables that are necessary for Consultant’s performance of the Services;
  10. ensure that Client employees and stakeholders are available and responsive to Consultant’s inquiries of Client over the course of the delivery of the Services; and,
  11. provide any access necessary for Consultant to perform its services ("Client Obligations"). If Client repeatedly or unreasonably fails to perform the Client Obligations, Consultant may provide written notice specifying the failure and request that Client correct the failure. If Client does not correct the failure within ten days of its receipt of the notice, Consultant may, by written notice to Client, stop work under the SOW and invoice for services provided through the date of work stoppage. To resume services, Consultant may require an amendment to the SOW.
  12. Termination. CEither party may terminate this Agreement at any time upon not less than ten (10) business days' written notice. In the event of such termination, Consultant shall be paid for any portion of the Services performed prior to the termination date and any early termination fees due and owing in accordance with the applicable SOW, if any.
  13. Ownership of Intellectual Property.
  14. Except as otherwise expressly agreed in writing between the Parties, the Deliverables shall be work-made-for-hire. Consultant shall grant and assign to Client all intellectual property rights and interests arising out of the Deliverables with the execution of an inventions assignment (the "Inventions Assignment") document upon Client's request, only after Client has paid all amounts due and owing to Consultant, including any early termination fees owed to Consultant, and pursuant to all terms of this Agreement.
  15. The Inventions Assignment shall include, but it is not limited to, all developed code, programs and/or programming, and any technology or resulting intellectual property in any work Consultant performs in the creation of Client's application(s), subject to the terms of this Agreement and any applicable SOW.
  16. The assignment of intellectual property rights and interests arising out of the services in the Inventions Assignment shall not include Consultant's intellectual property (including its designs, methods, software, and trade secrets) that either preexist this Agreement or are developed by Consultant other than in providing services for Client under this Agreement (the "Tools"). The Tools shall include any improvements to, or modifications of, Tools that are not uniquely applicable to the scope of work defined in the applicable SOW.
  17. Client acknowledges that the assignment of intellectual property in any Deliverables is subject to all the terms and conditions of any software or APIs (i.e., Google Maps, etc.) incorporated into Client's application(s) and further acknowledges that this agreement shall also be subject to all terms and conditions governing the use of such APIs.
  18. Covenant. Consultant agrees that during the Term of this Agreement, it shall not directly divert or attempt to divert, or otherwise interfere with, disrupt or harm the business relationships of the Client
  19. Severability. The Parties intend all provisions of this Agreement to be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law. Accordingly, if a court of competent jurisdiction should determine that the scope of any provision is too broad to be enforced as written, the Parties intend that the court should reform the provision to such narrower scope as it determines to be enforceable. If, however, any provision of this Agreement is held to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable under present or future law, such provision shall be fully severable and this Agreement shall be construed and enforced as if such illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision were never a part hereof, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and shall not be affected by the illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision, or by its severance.
  20. Assignment. The Client shall have the right to assign this Agreement to its successors or assigns, and all covenants and agreements herein shall inure to the benefit of, and be enforceable by or against, such successors or assigns. The terms "successors" and "assigns" shall include any natural person or any entity that buys all or substantially all of the Client's assets or all of its stock or with which the Client merges or consolidates. The rights and duties of, and benefits to, Consultant hereunder are personal to him, and no such right, duty, or benefit may be assigned by him without the prior written consent of the Client.
  21. Confidentiality. During the term of this Agreement and for 2 years afterward, Consultant will use reasonable care to prevent the unauthorized use or dissemination of Client’s confidential information. Reasonable care means at least the same degree of care Consultant uses to protect its own confidential information from unauthorized disclosure. All information of Client’s not specifically deemed as “public” by Client shall be considered confidential by Consultant. Confidential information does not include information that is, or becomes, public knowledge through no fault of Consultant. Subject to confidentiality obligations to Client, after delivery and Client’s acceptance (or as otherwise expressly permitted by Client in writing) of all Deliverables and Client’s public launching of the creative materials included in the Deliverables, Client consents to Consultant posting selected pieces of creative materials on Consultant’s website or within marketing materials for promotional and case study purposes. Consultant will, upon Client’s request, remove from Consultant’s website any of those materials that identify Client, whether by name, logo, or otherwise. Client also consents to the inclusion of Client’s name to Consultant’s client list. Consultant will not issue any press releases or engage in any other publicity with respect to the work completed pursuant to this Agreement without Client’s prior written consent.
  22. Non-Solicitation. Client and Consultant agree that they will have direct contact with employees of each other’s firm, Client and Consultant agree to not solicit one other’s employees to work for each of them directly during the Term, or for a period of 12 months following the end of the Term. In the event Client or Consultant hires an employee of the other Party, a transfer fee of the lesser of $40,000 or 30% of the employee’s annual salary paid to that person by Party shall be due to the employee’s original employer (i.e., the other party). The transfer fee is due if the employee is hired or engaged under any title or position (whether as employee, consultant, or independent contractor) by the other Party or any of its divisions, subsidiaries, or affiliates. The Parties may mutually agree to terms that void the foregoing transfer fee.
