  1. Drimlike shall, on request, provide the Client with Drimlike’s standard customer support services at Drimlike’s then current rates. Drimlike may amend its policy for provision of such standard support services in its sole and absolute discretion from time to time. The Client may purchase enhanced support services separately at an additional cost to be agreed between the parties.
  1. Drimlike will at all times comply with its Security Breach Policy.
  1. Delivery Milestones
  1. Any estimate given by Drimlike in relation to performance of any stage of the Services is given in good faith having regard to the information made available by the Client and Drimlike shall use reasonable endeavours to meet any performance dates set out in the Specification or otherwise. However, performance dates provided by Drimlike in relation to the Services are, in the absence of specific written agreement to the contrary, estimated only and no such performance date (or any confirmation or variation of them in subsequent correspondence or reports) shall be deemed in any circumstance to be undertakings, warranties or contractual conditions.
  1. If Drimlike’s performance of its obligations under the Agreement is prevented or delayed by any act or omission of the Client or its agents, subcontractors, consultants or employees, Drimlike shall not be deemed in breach of its obligations under the Agreement or otherwise liable for any costs, charges or losses sustained or incurred by the Client, in each case, to the extent arising directly or indirectly from such prevention or delay.
  1. Client Responsibilities
  1. The Client shall:
  1. ensure that the terms of the Order and any Specification are complete and accurate;
  2. cooperate with Drimlike in all matters relating to the Services;
  1. provide, for Drimlike, its agents, subcontractors, consultants and employees, such access to the Client's facilities as may reasonably be requested by Drimlike for the purposes of performing the Services;
  1. respond promptly to any request by Drimlike to provide direction, information, approvals, authorisations or decisions that are reasonably necessary for Drimlike to perform Services in accordance with the requirements of the Agreement;
  1. provide such information, documents and materials as Drimlike may reasonably request in order to carry out the Services, in a timely manner, and ensure that they are accurate and complete in all material respects; and
  1. obtain and maintain all necessary licenses and consents and comply with all Applicable Laws as required to enable Drimlike to provide the Services, in all cases before the date on which the Services are to start.
  1. Approval of Services
  1. On completion of the Services, or any delivery milestone, Drimlike will notify the Client and the Client shall have the opportunity to review the relevant Deliverables. The Client shall be obliged to accept Deliverables if they accord in all material respects with the Order and any specification for the Deliverables signed by the parties in writing. The Client shall notify Drimlike in writing if the Deliverables (or part thereof) do not comply with the requirements of the Agreement with full details of any such non-compliance and shall permit Drimlike a reasonable opportunity to replace or re-perform the relevant Deliverables. If the Client does not notify Drimlike of any non-compliance within the requisite 7 day period, the Client shall not be entitled to reject the Deliverables and shall be bound to pay the charges for the Deliverables as if the Deliverables have been delivered in accordance with the Agreement.  
  2. Notwithstanding Condition 11.1, where the Services comprise provision of a website or application, Drimlike will correct, at no additional cost to the Client, any Fault notified to it by the Client within 3 months of completion of the relevant Services. Drimlike takes no responsibility for ongoing functionality or maintenance after such period unless separately agreed under a maintenance contract.
  3. The Client acknowledges that any website or application built from a graphic design may not exactly match the original design due to the difference between the display in design software and the rendering of HTML code by internet browser software. Whilst Drimlike agrees to try and match the design as closely as is possible when building the code, if the Client requests design or content alterations to pages that have already been completed, new pages or different functionality other than that specified in the original quotation, Drimlike reserves the right to charge separately for these alterations.
  4. The Client acknowledges that there may be a reasonable variance in colour between proofings, colours on screen, and final printed items. Accordingly, Drimlike is unable to guarantee 100% consistency and accuracy of colour and may not always be able to achieve the exact result expected by the Client. Drimlike accepts no responsibility for images printing poorly due to the Client providing low resolution images.
  1. Charges and Payment
  1. The charges for the Services shall be the charges set out in the quotation by Drimlike, or, if no charges are quoted, the charges shall be calculated in accordance with Drimlike’s then current daily fee rates.
  2. Drimlike shall invoice the Client for the charges at the intervals specified, or on the achievement of the delivery milestones indicated, in the Specification. If no intervals are so specified Drimlike shall invoice the Client for:
  1. 50% of the charges on or before the Commencement Date; and
  2. the remaining charges on completion of the Services (or on completion of the corresponding delivery milestone).
  1. The Client shall pay each invoice submitted to it by Drimlike in Sterling, Euros or US Dollars within 30 days of receipt to the bank account nominated in writing by Drimlike from time to time. All invoices shall, unless otherwise agreed, be submitted by email and payment shall be made by wire transfer or credit card. For the avoidance of doubt, cheques are not accepted.
  2. Without prejudice to any other right or remedy that it may have, if the Client fails to pay Drimlike any sum due under the Agreement on the due date:
  1. the Client shall pay interest on the overdue sum from the due date until payment of the overdue sum, whether before or after judgment. Interest will accrue each day at 2.5% a year above the Bank of Scotland’s base rate from time to time;
  2. Drimlike may suspend all or part of the Services and performance of any other contract between the parties until payment has been made in full.
  1. All sums payable to Drimlike under the Agreement are exclusive of VAT, and the Client shall in addition pay an amount equal to any VAT chargeable on those sums on delivery of a VAT invoice.
  2. The Client shall pay all amounts due under the Agreement in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (except for any deduction or withholding required by law). Drimlike may at any time, without limiting any other rights or remedies it may have, set off any amount owing to it by the Client against any amount payable by Drimlike to the Client.
  1. Intellectual Property
  1. In relation to the Client Materials:
  1. the Client and its licensors shall retain ownership of all Intellectual Property Rights in the Client Materials; and

  1. In relation to the Deliverables, unless otherwise agreed in the Order, the Intellectual Property Rights in all Deliverables shall:
  1. be assigned to the Client on payment of all sums due under the Agreement without further formality; and
  2. automatically be deemed licensed to Drimlike to use for the purposes of providing the Services.
  1. Confidentiality

  2. Each party may disclose the other party’s Confidential Information:
  1. to its employees, officers, representatives, subcontractors or advisers who need to know such information for the purposes of carrying out the party’s obligations under the Agreement.

  2. as may be required by law, a court of competent jurisdiction or any governmental or regulatory authority.
  1. No party shall use any other party’s Confidential Information for any purpose other than to perform its obligations under the Agreement.
  1. Termination
  1. Without affecting any other right or remedy available to it, either party to the Agreement may terminate it with immediate effect by giving written notice to the other party if:

  1. the other party takes any step or action in connection with its entering administration, provisional liquidation or any composition or arrangement with its creditors (other than in relation to a solvent restructuring), being wound up (whether voluntarily or by order of the court, unless for the purpose of a solvent restructuring), having a receiver appointed to any of its assets or ceasing to carry on business or if the step or action is taken in another jurisdiction, in connection with any analogous procedure in the relevant jurisdiction;
  2. the other party suspends, or threatens to suspend, or ceases or threatens to cease to carry on all or a substantial part of its business; or
  3. the other party’s financial position deteriorates to such an extent that in the terminating party’s opinion the other party’s capability to adequately fulfil its obligations under the Agreement has been placed in jeopardy.
  1. Without affecting any other right or remedy available to it, Drimlike may terminate the Agreement with immediate effect by giving written notice to the Client if the Client fails to pay any amount due under the Agreement on the due date for payment and remains in default not less than 14 days after being notified in writing to make such payment.
  1. Exit Obligations and Survival

On termination or expiry of the Agreement, the Client shall immediately pay to Drimlike all outstanding unpaid invoices and interest and, in respect of any Services supplied but for which no invoice has been submitted, Drimlike may submit an invoice, which shall be payable immediately on receipt.
  2. Any provision of the Agreement that expressly or by implication is intended to come into or continue in force on or after termination or expiry of the Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.
