Between Spark Events and Client
We’ll always do our best to fulfill your needs and meet your expectations, but it’s important to have things written down so that we both know what’s what, who should do what and when, and what will happen if something goes wrong. In this contract you won’t find any complicated legal terms or long passages of unreadable text. We have no desire to trick you into signing something that you might later regret. What we do want is what’s best for both parties, now and in the future.
What do both parties agree to?
As the client, you have the authority to enter into this contract on behalf of yourself, your company, or organization.
As the service provider, we have the experience and ability to do everything we’ve agreed with you and we’ll do it all in a professional and timely manner.
After accepting this proposal, we will provide you with a detailed timeline of the production schedule. By signing the proposed timeline, both parties agree to meet the deadlines and provide the deliverables outlined in the timeline.
During this project, there is bound to be a need to gather additional information from the other party. Both parties agree to provide each other with everything necessary to complete a deadline or the project as a whole. You’ll give us the assets and information we tell you we need to complete the project. You’ll do this when we ask and provide it in the formats we ask for. You’ll review our work, provide feedback and approval in a timely manner too. Deadlines work two ways, so you’ll also be bound by dates we set together. You also agree to stick to the payment schedule set out on the invoice. We want to see you succeed!
If client is unable to meet a deadline outlined in the timeline, client agrees that the project may be delayed.
TABLEING A PROJECT
If within 30 days of an agreed upon deliverable date Spark Events is unable to acquire the necessary information or payments to proceed with a project, client agrees that their project may be "tabled" or put on hold. Once tabled if client would like to proceed with the project, client agrees to a renewal fee of $500 and the timeline of the project will be subject to a revised schedule provided by Spark Events and agreed upon by both parties prior to reengaging in the project.
A kill fee is what the client must pay Spark Events in the event the project is terminated before it is completed.
In the event a project has been tabled for 60 days, Spark Events reserves the right to initiate a "kill fee" based on the progress of the project outlined in the formalized timeline.
Additionally, if client requests a project to be concluded prior to the scope of the project being completed, client agrees to notify Spark Events in writing immediately. In this event, client is subject to a kill fee based on the progress of the project outlined in the formalized timeline.
In the event a kill fee is enacted, Spark Events retains all copyrights and possession of the assets, graphics, and other visual/digital elements that have been created during the project.
The kill fee will be as follows:
If no deliverables have been released, the kill fee shall be 50 percent of the project fee and shall be due and payable to Spark Events upon notice that the project has been terminated. If any deliverables have been released, the kill fee shall be 80 percent of the project fee and shall become due upon notice that the project has been terminated. Any project fees received prior to project termination will be credited accordingly.
