•Nondisclosure. Consultant agrees to hold and maintain confidential all information Client provides Consultant in conjunction with the Engagement. The Consultant shall not knowingly use, copy, or disseminate information Client provides Consultant, or any deliverables produced, other than to the Client. This obligation of the Consultant shall survive any expiration, termination, or cancellation of this agreement, and shall remain in full force.
•Ownership. Consultant agrees that the production of deliverables shall be defined as work-for-hire, and that all ownership rights thereof shall become the property of the Client or its assigns upon satisfactory payment for services rendered.
•Return of materials. Consultant agrees, after payment in full for services rendered, to return any and all materials provided for use in the production of the deliverables.
•Independent Contractor. Consultant acknowledges that it is acting as an independent contractor with respect to any and all services performed under this Agreement. The Consultant will provide all of its own necessary equipment and supplies to complete the work. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed to create the relationship of employer and employee. From any amounts due Consultant, there will be no deductions for federal income tax or FICA payments, nor for any state income tax, nor for any other purposes which are associated with an employer-employee relationship unless required by law. Payment of federal income tax, FICA payments, and state income tax are the responsibility of the Consultant.
•Dispute Resolution. Consultant and Client agree that the exclusive jurisdiction for any dispute arising from this Subcontracting Agreement shall be the Circuit Court for Dane County, Wisconsin. In the event Client fails to pay for services agreed to and/or rendered hereunder, Client agrees that Consultant may recover its actual costs of collection, including its actual and reasonable attorneys’ fees. Dispute must be submitted in writing to Consultant with a 60-day option of right to resolve before formally taking court action.
•NON-SOLICITATION. Customer will not, for a period equal to the earlier of (i) one (1) year after a person has ceased to work for Calls On Call LLC or (ii) the term of this Agreement and one (1) year thereafter, directly or indirectly, solicit for itself or any third party, any person employed by Calls On Call LLC who provided Services to Customer to leave that employment or to provide, independently or with others, services to Customer unless prior written authorization is obtained from Calls On Call LLC. Should Customer breach this Section or hire or contract with an employee of Calls On Call LLC (the “Former Employee”) during the time period set forth in the previous sentence, Customer shall pay Calls On Call LLC a placement fee amounting to the Former Employee’s salary and benefits for the prior twelve (12)-month period. Both parties agree that damages pursuant to this Section may be difficult or impossible to ascertain, and that the placement fee set forth in the previous sentence is a reasonable pre-estimate of the applicable damages and shall be deemed liquidated damages and not a penalty.
•Shared Contractor. Client understands that this is a shared receptionist. Some calls may be missed or dropped due to technical issues, unavailable receptionist, or other unforeseen circumstances.
•Limited Liability. Client understands that this is a shared human receptionist. Consultant shall not be held liable for damages arising out of an error or omission on the part of Consultant, Consultant’s employees or contractors. In providing services under this agreement, the Consultant will endeavor to perform in a manner consistent with that degree of care and skill ordinarily exercised by members of the same profession practicing under similar circumstances.
•Severability. If a provision of this Agreement is or becomes illegal, invalid or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, that shall not affect the validity or enforceability in that jurisdiction of any other provision of this Agreement or the validity or enforceability in other jurisdictions of that or any other provision of this Agreement.
•Payment Terms. Client agrees to pay Consultant with a credit card an automatically billed amount agreed upon by Client and Consultant for services to be rendered. Client’s credit card will be billed automatically on or around the 1st of each month, unless another date is agreed upon with Consultant. Failure to make payment does not void contract or limit financial responsibility to the Consultant by the Client.
•Package Rates When Changing Packages. Client agrees that changing packages at any time will override any previous pricing and will reflect the current pricing as shown on Consultant’s website, callsoncall.com. Increasing packages (increased call time) will negate any previous annual automatic increases in package pricing. Lowering packages will keep or return the annual increase in package pricing from the Customer start date.
•Client understands there is no penalty to move up packages (increase call time). Client also understands they need to give a 60-day written notice to drop packages (decrease call time) or they will be issued a $250 fee.
•Automatically Renewing. Client understands that this contract is automatically renewed at the same term as initially agreed upon. Automatic renewal of contract can be prevented, if desired, with a 30-day written notice at least 30 days before automatic renewal of contract.
•Receptionist will not be available on National Holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Day unless 24/7 service is selected.
•Client understands that Calls On Call requires a 30-day written notice for cancellation (after the 6 month contract has expired). Services will continue through the last day of the month following 30 days.
