Both Parties agree that when asked, Client must properly identify Contractor as the creator of the deliverables. Client does not have a proactive duty to display Contractor’s name together with the deliverables, but Client may not seek to mislead others that the deliverables were created by anyone other than Contractor.
Client hereby agrees Contractor may use the work product as part of Contractors portfolio and websites, galleries and other media solely for the purpose of showcasing Contractors work but not for any other purpose.
Contractor will not publish any confidential or non-public work without Client’s prior written consent.
This Agreement and any dispute arising hereunder shall be governed by the laws of the jurisdiction of Contractor’s primary business location (the “Contractor’s Jurisdiction”), without regard to the conflicts of law provisions thereof. For all purposes of this Agreement, the Parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the courts located in the Contractor’s jurisdiction.
The failure of either party to enforce its rights under this Agreement at any time for any period shall not be construed as a waiver of such rights.

Any notices to either Party made pursuant to this Agreement shall be made and sent via e-mail to the other Party’s designated representative.

Notices sent by e-mail shall be deemed effective once sent if no error or “bounce back” has been received within twenty-four (24) hours of submission.
Client and Contractor will seek to maintain a professional relationship that is free from harassment of any kind and from any other offensive or disrespectful conduct. If at any time during the term of this Agreement Contractor believes that he/she has been subjected to harassing behavior on the part of Client or Client’s staff, Contractor will notify Client immediately and demand that appropriate actions will be taken to correct the matter. In the event that the reported behavior continues following Contractor’s second notice, such behavior will constitute a breach of this Agreement and entitle Contractor to terminate this Agreement in accordance with the Agreement’s Term and Termination Clause, and be paid in full for the ordered project or for the planned monthly service hours, as applicable, without limiting any other right or remedy available to Contractor by law.
The section and subsection headings used in this Agreement are for convenience only and will not be used in interpreting this Agreement. Both parties have had the opportunity to review this Agreement and neither party will be deemed the drafter of this Agreement for the purposes of interpreting any ambiguity in this Agreement. The parties agree that this Agreement may be signed by manual or facsimile signatures and in counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original and all of which together will constitute one and the same instrument. In the event that any provision of this Agreement will be determined to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be first revised to give the maximum permissible effect to its original intent or, if such revision is not permitted, that specific provision will be eliminated so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
This Agreement, and any exhibits, schedules or attachments, between the Parties supersedes any previous arrangements, oral or written, and may not be modified in any respect except by a future written agreement signed by both Parties.
