- This meeting is designed to be no more that half an hour in length, and all information obtained by the Company during these meetings will be held as confidential, and the sole property of you the Client. If the Company or its agents provide you with additional ideas or thoughts about your Project during these consultations, you are under no obligation to remit payment for those ideas, and they are considered part of your Project, and the intellectual property of you.

Services offered to Active Clients
- The Company offers the following services to Active Clients. The rules for these services are defined herein as well.
- Project Discovery work is required for all projects serviced by the Company. This work is broken down into two stages.
- The first stage of discovery is to ascertain the extent of the feature requirements for the Project, and any immediate impediments to the Project's continuation. The first stage will have a budget cap applied to the effort required, and the final bill for the effort will be based on the hours applied to the discovery. The first stage of discovery can not be bypassed during the first phase of development. Subsequent phases however may not require a stage one discovery. Once completed, stage one of discovery will provide you with a list of features and use cases as well as the effort required to complete the designs for the current phase of development during stage two of discovery.
- The Second Stage of discovery is presented as milestones that are planned as part of the first stage. These milestones have an associated effort and are billed to your Account upon completion of the work for the milestone. This stage of discovery is dedicated to building the data model for any project application and designing the user experience for any custom applications or components used in your Project. During this second stage of discovery, it is possible for milestones to influence previously completed milestones as we iterate towards perfection of the application design. In such cases no additional fee is applied to completed milestones. At the completion of the second stage of discovery, the Company will provide you with the designs created, code developed, and the complete plan for completing the current phase of development. This plan will include the final pricing for the current phase of development broken into milestones.
- Project Discovery requires that a Billing Agreement be in place for the Project prior to beginning any Discovery work. You must understand and agree that during discovery, it is possible that your Project may gain previously unforeseen obstacles that prevent the Company from moving forward. These obstacles are not always easy to see without the full context obtained in discovery. When these obstacles are found, the Company will stop work immediately, and discuss the problems with you. If together the Company and you can find a solution, the Company will resume work on your Project. In either case, you are obligated to pay for all efforts completed as part of your discovery as outlined in your billing agreement, including the milestone that produced the obstacle.
- All phases of a project require that discovery take place prior to development commencing. This is primarily to protect you from unforeseen costs, but also serves as the planning period for your phase and allows the Company to assemble the milestones for your project phase.
- The work plan for a Project Discovery in conjunction with the Billing agreement for any given Phase of development is considered a valid estimate for 60 Days following the date the Discovery Review is issued to the Client. Beyond that point the Company may choose to require an addition stage of discovery prior to accepting a project into active development. In addition, the Company may also require a new Billing Agreement at that time.
- Network engineering services are Service that assist you in preparing your network, or a cloud environment to run your Project after completion of development services. We are not however a managed service provider, nor do we engage in the maintenance of client networks or hardware devices. Data loss prevention, and Network level security are the sole domain of you the Client, and the Company cannot be held liable for any breaches or loss of data concerning your physical network.
Software Engineering or Development
- The Company provides software engineering services to you the Client only after Initiation is approved by the Company and you the Client, and a full discovery has been completed for your Project. Project work is broken into phase that can span a single, or multiple sprints for the Company. This Service is billed as milestones, with the effort fully realized in the clients Staging Environment and approved of by the Client.
- Work is planned sprint by sprint, and billed as completed. Your billing agreement may require a deposit on Milestones that are planned for the current sprint prior to work on the milestones beginning. If required, the deposits must be in place prior to any company agent beginning work on your milestone.
- If during the course of development changes to the Project are requested by the Client, and the Company deems those changes to be outside the scope of planned work, those changes will be subject to another stage of discovery to ensure that all requirements are fully understood. The outcome of the discovery will dictate changes to effort planned, and the Client agrees to compensate the discovery time, and the subsequent changes per the billing agreement.
- The Company agrees that the Project Source Code in whole, Ideas, and Designs are the intellectual property of You the Client. The Company does not however grant ownership of internally developed libraries to the Client. The Company retains ownership of any code developed for the purpose of re-usability outside the clients Project.
- The Company agrees to keep all ideas, designs, data, and project source code confidential. If the Client requests, then the Company agrees to remove the code from Company resources and remit all copies to You the Client.
- The Company is under no obligation to maintain storage of Project resource for Non-Active Clients beyond 6 months from the time that the Client becomes Non-Active. Any loss of data or research is the sole responsibility of the Client.
- The Client is not granted access to the Company’s internal storage services, or active development environments unless granted in writing to the Client apart from this agreement. The Company is under no obligation to grant the Client access to Company resources or systems.
Owner Acceptance Period (OAP)
- Work completed in software engineering or development is provided with a two-month OAP or Owner Acceptance Period. This time is dropped to Two weeks when the Project becomes inactive. Bugs or defects found during this time period will be fixed alongside work for the next phase of development in active sprints. If a defect is reported in this period, once a fix has been applied the fix is provided an additional five days of OAP to ensure that it, and its related systems have been fixed completely.
- Any defect reported outside of the OAP will be considered additional work for a future or current phase and will be treated as billable effort.
- It is possible that the Company may not be able to provide any or part of your final project work if it is found to be illegal, or there are third party restrictions preventing the continuation of the development of your product. In such cases you are only required to remit payment for the milestones completed for your Project. If your Project can be salvaged with a change in course, you will be required to return to discovery to ascertain the extent of changes to existing code, and future. A new milestone document will be generated, and the budget for you project phase will be altered accordingly.
- It is important to understand that the Company specializes in the art of developing effective, and efficient software, and not the art of understanding the legal implications of your line of business. The Company will make every effort in good faith to find, and mediate obstacles to the success of your Project, the Company has no control of third-party vendors, or legal entities.
- When we develop software, we setup continuous integrations to push code to development environments that mimic your production environments.

When we begin deploying to Production environments these costs can increase based on utilization.
- You will have two production environments for your projects. Staging will be where you go to review and accept milestone completions. Production will be where the live instance of your Project runs. We do not deploy these environments until needed to reduce your azure costs during development.
- You will receive a bill for Azure resources monthly, and you agree to remit payment within 5 business days of receiving the bill.
