By payment of an invoice referencing these terms and conditions, you agree on behalf your company (“Client”) to the following agreement with Metagrate:
The relationship of the Parties hereunder is that of independent contractors, and nothing in these terms and conditions or any other communications between Metagrate and Client is intended to, or shall be construed to create a partnership, agency, joint venture, employment, or similar relationship. It is the understanding and intention of Client and Metagrate that in the performance of any Work by Metagrate for Client, Metagrate and its employees, agents, or representatives, shall be deemed to be an independent contractor of Client. Nothing contained in these terms and conditions or any other communications between Metagrate and Client will be construed to be inconsistent with such independent contractor relationship.
This agreement grants Client the non-exclusive, non-transferable use of the proprietary code, which is the intellectual property of Metagrate. This agreement and the materials, ideas, and work to which it applies are confidential and proprietary trade secret information. The client is licensed for use with their product, but shall not in any other manner disclose, sell, transfer or license to other parties without prior consultation and express written permission from Metagrate. These obligations survive upon the termination of the contract.
At Metagrate’s discretion, any work outside of the scope of the invoice not covered by another invoice or written agreement is subject to Metagrate’s standard hourly rates.
Metagrate is not liable for lost profits or lost business, indirect, consequential, punitive damages, or any other kind of loss or damage of any kind whatsoever, whether based in contract or tort (including negligence, strict liability or otherwise) whether or not either party has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
