These terms and conditions cover the work undertaken by me, whether it's an ongoing project or a one-off job.
As my client, you agree to:
Enter into this agreement on behalf of your organisation.
Provide me with everything I need to complete the project.
Review my work, provide feedback, and sign-off within agreed timescales.
Adhere to the payment schedule described.
As the writer, I agree to:
Utilise my experience and ability to perform the services you require.
Execute this service in a professional manner.
Respect the confidentiality of any information you provide.
I will create text or guidelines for you as described in the assignment details section of this agreement.
Changes and revisions
As this is a fixed-price agreement, I do have to limit the time I spend rewriting and editing. This agreement therefore includes:
Initial delivery of a complete copy document.
Two subsequent rounds of changes, if required.
This only applies up to the point where you sign off my work, publish it or begin using it on your live website. Please note. If you have not provided feedback within 2 weeks I will assume that you're happy with the work and it has been signed off.
Upon receiving full and final payment, the copyright of the work I produce is automatically assigned to you. You can then use the work however you wish.
I make a living as a freelancer, so prompt payment is important to me. I’m not registered for VAT and my payment terms are 15 days. Please pay on time! Depending on the scope of the project there might be a deposit to pay. This will be outlined in the proposal.
Cancelling this contract
To cancel this agreement, I will retain your down payment, and you may be required to make an additional payment to cover the work I've completed. This 'kill fee' will be based on the percentage of the project completed.
I will do my best to ensure all facts and statements in my work are true and that it doesn’t infringe upon any copyright or other right of a third party.
However, I can't be liable to you, or any third party, for damages, including lost profits, lost savings, complaints, claims, litigation or other incidental, consequential or special damages which arise regarding this assignment.
Client Responsibilities and Due Diligence
The Client agrees to perform their own due diligence, fact-checking, and verification of the accuracy, legality, and appropriateness of the work provided under this Agreement, including but not limited to, ensuring compliance with applicable laws, regulations, and industry standards. The Client acknowledges that the Writer is not responsible for any errors, omissions, or misrepresentations in the work, as well as any consequences arising from the Client's use, publication, or distribution of the work.
Limitation of Liability
The Writer's liability for any claims, damages, liabilities, losses, costs, or expenses (including reasonable legal fees) arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, whether based on contract, tort, negligence, or any other legal theory, shall be limited to the amount paid by the Client to the Writer under this Agreement.
The Writer shall not be liable for any indirect, incidental, consequential, special, punitive, or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, lost profits, lost savings, or loss of business opportunity, even if the Writer has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
