Please keep in mind this timeline is only estimated an is subject to change.
The Service Provider is not responsible for delayed launches due to delays on behalf of the Client. These delays can be caused by, but not limited to, being late in supplying requested materials, delayed responses, or requests for changes in the project scope.

Client may not pause or put the project on hold. If the Client decides they no longer want to work with the Service Provider, they are still liable for the full contract.

Such charges shall be in addition to all other amounts payable under this Agreement despite any maximum budget, contract price or final price identified therein.

After that, during the course of working together, if the client runs into additional scheduling issues, Sarah Rose Inc. reserves the right to terminate the project with no refunds or reschedules.
Client understands that Service Provider is not an employee, and that this will be a collaborative, professional relationship of equals where mutual professional respect, courtesy and consideration are expected.
