Whereas:

  • The Parties may enter into and/or have entered into one or more contracts for the performance of work and/or services and/or regarding the sale of certain goods (hereinafter referred to as the Contract(s)):
  • The Parties envisage that in view of the performance of its obligations under the Contract(s) by designflow and/or in view of any possible negotiations regarding any such Contract(s) between the Parties, it may be that certain confidential information may be made available by The client to designflow or will become known to designflow in any other way;
  • The client may be willing to provide designflow with certain confidential information and to enable designflow to take notice of any such Information, on the condition that the Parties will enter into a confidentiality agreement prior to making available any such information;
  • The client recognizes that in the performance of its obligations under the Contract(s) by designflow it may be that certain confidential information and Intellectual Property such as but not limited to; copyrights, database rights, trademarks, trade names, processes, symbols, icons, templates, drawing legends, drawing shapes, drawing blocks and/or Know How may be made available by designflow to The client or will become known to The client in any other way.

  • The Parties have discussed and agreed on all of the terms and conditions of a written agreement to be entered into between them.

Now therefore the Parties herewith enter into the following agreement, hereinafter referred to as “the Agreement”:

The Agreement Term is for 12 months, with 30% discount on all designflow RRP (Recommended Retail Price) design fees for the first 12 months of the term.

This agreement is auto-renewing at every 12 months period after the client agrees to these terms – at the completion of each agreement term, the agreement will automatically renew for a further 12 months unless written notice of cancellation is received at least 30 days prior to the agreements expiration.

30 days prior to each 12-month anniversary of the inception of this agreement designflow reserves the right to contact the client with the express intention of ensuring the continuation of this contract for a further 12 months.

At the expiry of each 12-month term of this agreement, designflow will indicate to the client how many design work projects have been completed during the 12-month term. This number will determine the current discount level that the client receives on designflow RRP fees for the following 12 months as follows:
12 or more completed design work projects – 30% discount
7-11 completed design work projects – 25% discount
2-6 completed design work projects – 20% discount
1 or less completed design work projects – 15% discount

If the client decides, they want to terminate the contract during any 12-month term the client hereby agrees to pay designflow the difference between the current discount rate as set out above and the minimum discount rate (15%) on any designflow RRP fees previously charged to the client within that 12-month period.

The client can break the contract within the first calendar month after agreeing to these terms, by doing so the client hereby agrees to pay designflow the difference between the current discount rate as set out above and the minimum discount rate (15%) on any designflow RRP fees previously charged to the client within that first calendar month.

The client agrees that designflow will not be held financially or otherwise responsible for any errors or omissions found in any designs or documentation created for or on behalf of the client. The client’s only remedy for any errors or omissions found in any designs or documentation created for or on behalf of the client is to notify designflow about the error which designflow will correct free of charge.

As part of this agreement, designflow will provide quotations to the client for design fees for plans, schedules, elevations, equipment layouts and connectivity schematics for specific projects at the request of the client and based on the RRP (Recomended Retail Price) on designflow’s price list.
By requesting a quotation for any specific project the client hereby agrees to include that price within the client’s proposal to the client’s customer for that specific project.
It is also the intention of this agreement that any projects won by the client that designflow has provided a quotation for design fees for plans, schedules, elevations, equipment layouts and connectivity schematics for, will have the design work for plans, schedules, elevations, equipment layouts and connectivity schematics automatically awarded to designflow.

One revisions is included in all design work. All design work will be delivered in PDF format to the deadline previously agreed with the client in writing. Before any plan drawings can be prepared, a marked up drawing must be provided showing all equipment positions required on said plan drawings.

Non-competing: designflow’s policy is not to quote on the same project for two or more different clients, where the same project is presented to designflow by two or more different clients designflow will decide at their own and complete discretion which client will receive the built-in design quote for that project.
