Pay as You Go Consultancy

The customer engages LoopIndex to provide support software development and consulting work in a pay as you go plan. The customer pays for work actually performed but has no obligation to purchase any. No payment is due upon contract signing. There is no monthly minimum usage requirement and no fixed fees.

This agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties relating to this subject matter and supersedes all prior oral or written agreements.

1. Rates

An hourly rate will be provided to the customer when signing the agreement.

2. Billable Time

All work done by a consultant for the customer constitutes billable time. Reports of time used will be sent weekly.

3. Payment Terms

An advance payment will be paid by the customer before work starts. The amount to be paid in advance will reflect LoopIndex’s estimation for the required number of hours for the service required by the customer. If additional hours are needed, the customer will be notified and requested to pay for the additional hours. It is left to LoopIndex’s discretion to decide if work will continue before the payment for the additional hours is accepted.

4. Refund

Payment executed for time that isn’t billable entitles the customer to a refund. The refund will be performed with no delay unless the customer wishes to maintain funds available with LoopIndex for future service. It requires the customer’s explicit written instruction to prevent or delay the refund at the end of the service delivery.

5. Ownership rights

LoopIndex develops and supports software components. These components are used by multiple customers. Some of these components are based on open-source licenses. The software developed for the customer may be reused as is or with modification and shared with other customers under commercial or as free software. The decision if to reuse the code will be under LoopIndex sole discretion.

6. Complaints

Any Customer complaints, including (without limitation) concerning billing or work performance, must be presented to LoopIndex in writing within 90 days after the work date. Failure to do so constitutes a waiver of claims.

7. Termination

This agreement is effective until it is terminated. Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without cause, upon fifteen (15) days’ prior written notice. LoopIndex shall be paid in full for the work performed prior to the effective date of termination. If this agreement is terminated at the initiative of LoopIndex without cause, any amounts pre-paid but for which services have not been rendered shall be refunded on a pro-rata basis; otherwise, payments are non-refundable.

8. Liability

LoopIndex will not be liable for special, incidental, indirect, exemplary or consequential damages or lost profits arising out of or in connection with this agreement.
