The terms of this Section 6 are fair and reasonable, the Agreement is not the result of overreaching, duress or coercion of any kind and the full, uninhibited and faithful observance of each of the covenants contained in the Agreement will not cause a party any undue hardship, financial or otherwise.  The parties waive any legal or equitable right to contest that the Confidential Information constitutes trade secret, confidential information under all applicable statutes and common law.  For the purposes of the Agreement, "Confidential Information" means any and all information (whether written, graphic, oral or in any other form) considered proprietary and confidential by a party that is disclosed, directly or indirectly, to or known by a party as a consequence of or through retention by a party, including, but not limited to the information conceived, originated, disclosed, discovered or developed by a party (or in collaboration with others) relating to the Services or the business enterprise of one of the parties during the term of the Agreement, or other documents prepared by a party, its employees, agents or representatives during the term of the Agreement, and any and all other information not readily available to the public.

    Each party agrees that, both during and after the term of the Agreement, not to use or disclose to anyone outside of the parties any Confidential Information, except for any Confidential Information lawfully received from another source free of restriction and without breach of the Agreement,  that becomes generally available to the public without breach of the Agreement,  known to the receiving party at the time of disclosure,  independently developed by the receiving party without resort to the Confidential Information, or (5) specifically pertaining to an image of the front page of the Company’s website(s) (only if they are live) to be displayed on the Contractor’s portfolios with the specific nature of the work performed for the Company.  In the event a party is requested or required by law, judicial or governmental order or other legal process or pronouncement (including any discovery request), to disclose any Confidential Information, such party will give the other party prompt written notice of such request or requirement so that the other party may seek an appropriate protective order or other remedy.  The party being requested to make a disclosure will cooperate with the other party to obtain such protective order or other remedy.  In the event such order or other remedy is not obtained, the party being requested to make a disclosure will furnish only that portion of the Confidential Information that, in the opinion of counsel is legally required to be disclosed and such party will use its best efforts to obtain court orders or other assurances that confidential treatment will be accorded to any such Confidential Information which must, necessarily, be disclosed.  In no event will a party ever disclose any Confidential Information, which is requested or required by law, judicial or government order or other legal process or pronouncement, unless such party has first provided, if practical, at least seven (7) days actual written notice to the other party.

    Not including Generic Code, which will not be deemed “work made for hire”, all work product of Contractor, its agents and employees performed pursuant to the Agreement and Inventions (as defined below) (collectively "Work Product") shall be deemed "works made for hire" and owned exclusively by Company.  Contractor grants, transfers and assigns to Company all of Contractor's rights, title and interest, if any, in any and all Work Product (including rights to reproductions in all forms or formats and the patent rights and copyrights thereto, if any), and Contractor agrees that Company may patent and/or copyright said materials in Company's name and secure renewal, reissues and extensions of such patents and/or copyrights for such periods of time as the law may permit.  Contractor agrees to sign all documents, to obtain such patents or copyrights, to further assign them to Company, and to reasonably protect them and Company against infringement by other parties at Company's expense with Company's prior written approval.  Company shall have the right, without additional or further payment or consideration to Contractor, to make or use in its business, and to make, use or sell processes, software and services derived from any discoveries, concepts, ideas and improvements of existing technology, whether or not patentable or copyrightable, which are within the scope of Work Product.  Contractor agrees that all the results and proceeds of the Services to be rendered to Company, including any business ideas, programs, formulas, plans and arrangements, commenced or created by Contractor or in collaboration with others in providing the Services, whether or not the same is made at suggestion of Company shall at all times be and remain, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the exclusive property of Company.  Other than computer codes that may be utilized by Contractor in providing services similar to the Services to 3rd parties, some of which may be developed or refined by Contractor in the performance of the Services ("Generic Code"), Contractor represents that there are no Inventions owned wholly or in party by Contractor, or controlled, directly or indirectly, by Contractor, which Contractor considers to be excluded from the Agreement.  As used in the Agreement, "Invention" means any discoveries, concepts, ideas and improvements to existing technology, whether or not patentable or copyrightable, and all other subject matter as is ordinarily comprehended by the term "Invention," relating to any of the activities of Company, including, but not limited to, processes, methods, practices, inventions, designs, machines, devices, products, formulas, computer programs and techniques, software and software developments, databases, domain names, as well as improvements thereof and expressions thereof.  Notwithstanding anything in the Agreement to the contrary, Contractor does not assign or otherwise transfer any ownership in or to any Generic Code, and Contractor is free to use any Generic Code in any manner not in breach of the Agreement.  Contractor does grant a non-exclusive license to Company to utilize the Generic Code (such Generic Code, utilized by Company the “Licensed Generic Code”) without compensation except as provided in Section 2.  The parties acknowledge that a breach of this Section 6 will cause irreparable damages (and damages at law would be an inadequate remedy) if any provision of this Section 6 is not specifically enforced.  Therefore, in the event of a breach or threatened breach by any party of any provision of this Section 6, then the non-breaching party shall be entitled, in addition to all other rights or remedies which may be available at law or in equity, to an injunction restraining such breach, without being required to show any actual damage or to post an injunction bond, and/or to a decree for specific performance of the provisions of this Section 6.

  7. Expenses.  Except as provided in Section 2, Contractor shall be responsible for all expenses of every kind and nature and shall not be entitled to reimbursement for any expense by Company.

  11. Severability.  In the event that any one or more of the provisions contained in the Agreement shall be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect for any reason, that invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other provisions hereof and the Agreement shall be construed as if that invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision had never been contained herein.

  12. Parties Bound.  The terms, promises, covenants and agreements contained in the Agreement shall apply to, be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns; provided, however, that Contractor may not assign the Agreement to any person or entity without Company's prior written consent, which may be withheld in its sole and absolute discretion.

  15. Disclaimer of Limitation on Liability.

  16. Disclaimer.  Some countries, states, or provinces do not allow the exclusion or limitation of implied warranties, the limitation of incidental or consequential damages for certain products, or the limitation of liability for personal injury, so the above limitations and exclusions may be limited in their application to Company.  If any jurisdiction having applicability to the Agreement does not permit any such limitations and/or exclusions, then (i) each warranty that cannot be excluded shall be limited in time to ninety (90) days; and (ii) Contractor's total liability, in the aggregate, to Company under the Agreement shall be limited to the Fees paid under Section 2.

  18. Cumulative Remedies.  All remedies available to either party are cumulative and may be exercised concurrently or separately; the exercise of any one remedy will not be deemed an election of such remedy to the exclusion of other remedies.  

  19. Hiring. Each party agrees not to hire or engage through another third party company or agency any employee of the other with whom such party has contact during an engagement under a Statement of Work (‘SOW’) without the prior written permission of the other party during the term of the applicable SOW and continuing for a period of six (6) months thereafter.

  20. Force Majeure.  Contractor shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder or for any delay in such performance that results directly from a cause or circumstance that is beyond its reasonable control, including, but not limited to, strikes, severe weather, market disruptions, acts of terrorism or other causes commonly known as "Acts of God," nor shall any of the foregoing constitute a breach hereunder.  The term of the Agreement shall be tolled for a period equal to any period of time when Contractor is unable to perform due to such Acts of God.

  21. UCITA Not Applicable.  The parties agree that the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act, or any version thereof, adopted by any state located in the United States in any form (the "UCITA") shall not apply to the Agreement.  To the extent that the UCITA is applicable, the parties agree to opt out of the applicability of the UCITA pursuant to the opt-out provisions contained therein.

  22. No Construction Against the Drafter.  The parties agree that any principle of construction or rule of law that provides that an agreement will be construed against the drafter of the agreement in the event of any inconsistency or ambiguity in such agreement will not apply to the terms and conditions of the Agreement.

  23. No Guarantee.  Contractor does not implicitly or explicitly guarantee effectiveness of any tactics or strategies employed in the fulfillment of the Agreement.  Contractor is not liable for the effectiveness of the fulfillment of the Agreement.

  24. Communication. The Parties will each designate an individual or individuals who will have authority to make any binding decisions on behalf of their respective entities with regard to the terms of the Agreement, Schedule I, or Task Work. Parties will not be bound to any Terms and Conditions or actions unless proper approvals are granted in writing. The Parties will communicate in a manner that allows for timely and accurate exchange of any information required to maintain the relationship, respond to requests, manage schedules, complete Task Work, etc. The Company will supply information, materials and actions as necessary, at the Company's cost, for Contractor's use in carrying out the Services.  Company shall bear all related license, procurement and maintenance expenses. 

  25. Payments. All payments will be made in U.S. currency. If any payment is not received by the Contractor by the date due, a late fee equivalent to 2.5% of the total unpaid balance or $100, whichever is greater, will be due immediately. For every additional week payment is past due, a 1.5% late fee will be incurred, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is less. If any amount is not paid when due, Contractor shall recover from Company, in addition to the amounts owed for Services and interest, the costs and expenses incurred in connection with collecting such amounts (including without limitation costs of investigation and attorneys fees). NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THIS AGREEMENT, ALL RIGHTS GRANTED TO COMPANY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT ARE CONTINGENT UPON COMPANY’S PAYMENT IN FULL OF ALL AMOUNTS DUE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.

    The Fees chargeable by Contractor are stated exclusive of all taxes, duties and levies imposed by any government body. Company shall be liable and will pay for all applicable tax liabilities such as sales, services, use or value added taxes, but specifically excluding employment related taxes concerning Contractor's personnel and taxes based on Contractor's net income. If Company claims exemption from any taxes resulting from this Agreement, then Company will promptly provide Contractor with the relevant documentation to such exemption including required certificates, if any, from the relevant taxing authorities.

    Failure of Company to pay each amount when due may result in termination of this Agreement.

  26. Exclusions. Unless otherwise specified in Schedule I, Contractor will develop all Results to be compatible with Internet Explorer 8, 9, and 10. Contractor will support the latest stable release of the following browsers: Firefox, Safari, Chrome. Contractor will test the three aforementioned browsers using the OS X operating system. Specific support for browsers on mobile devices, including but not limited to the Apple iPhone and devices powered by Google's Android platform is not included as a part of this agreement, unless otherwise specified in Schedule I. Any other browsers or browser versions not specifically mentioned above are not supported by the Contractor, unless otherwise specified in Schedule I. This includes, but is not limited to, the Opera browser and versions of the Firefox, Safari, and Chrome prior to their latest stable release. Note that not all Web browsers and operating systems render content in exactly the same way. Some variation in rendering is to be expected and considered acceptable as long as the core functionality remains intact across the aforementioned environments. Contractor uses best practices in Web development standards, but cannot guarantee fidelity or operability in all platform / browser / client combinations.

  27. Software Compatibility. The native Magento platform is rich in features that promote success of eCommerce Merchants. In addition, the platform can be customized through code changes or by installation of a wide range of inexpensive third party modules. These customizations allow merchants to tailor the platform to the specific needs of their business and customer base at reasonable cost.

    Third party modules are developed to function with a native Magento platform. Therefore, whenever multiple modules are installed on a site, or when various code customizations have been done on a site, unforeseen conflicts are possible. It is the Contractors intention to minimize such conflicts but Company understands that estimates do not include resolving unforeseen issues due to code customization or installation of third party modules.

  28. At any time, Contractor may use its discretion in determining whether or not Contractor will enter into or continue a business relationship with any Company.

 

Revision Date December 15, 2016. Nucleus Commerce, LLC reserves the right to make changes to this Agreement without notice.
