Terms Of Business
Client = Client Name
Paul Allen Media = Paul Allen t/as Paul Allen Media
Work = any work to be undertaken on behalf of Client by Paul Allen Media and agreed by written contract email in advance
Proposal = detailed proposal document via email outlining scope of work with costings
A simple outline of any work called the “proposal document” to be undertaken shall be emailed to the Client. If the Client agrees to the proposal a contract outlining the details of the work needs to be signed by the Client and this confirms the schedule of work & prices quoted are satisfactory and that work can commence.
Any substantial questions relating to the schedule and proposal should be raised before the work is commenced. Having said that, the client is welcome to ask questions at any time, having understood that any further work requested as a result of those questions and outside the scope of the initial project should be outlined clearly, quoted for and agreed to, in a further exchange of emails.
Terms & Conditions
Terms & Conditions Of Business are mailed with every contract and it is the clients responsibility to ensure that they read and understand the Terms & Conditions Of Business and re-read them regularly and certainly every time a new project is undertaken.
Exclusivity does not apply for one-off projects or short term training and mentoring programs. However if the Client is paying a monthly retainer for ongoing works or services, Paul Allen Media will undertake to remain exclusive in the market sector to that client.
For avoidance of doubt, this means that, if the client is an accountant, Paul Allen Media will only provide social media management work for one accountant per town until such time as the agreement is terminated and/or the client stops paying the retainer.
Each project will be priced within the proposal document. Invoices will be produced according to the contract stipulation. Payment is strictly 14 days from the date of the invoice. Failure to comply will lead to Paul Allen Media removing access to the work or content it has created for the client.
If the Client applies for and is granted any Grant, for example the Train To Gain / Leadership & Management grants, the Client is wholly responsible for
1. Paying Paul Allen Media’s training fee in advance and then claiming the Grant from the local agency
2. Filling in the forms in a timely manner and ensuring the re-payment of their own grant.
