This document briefly outlines terms of service and expectations for my role as a developer, and yours as a client.
As a developer, you can expect me to produce quality code conforming to current web standards. I will strive to create the cleanest, and most elegant code possible, with very little to no "quick fixes".
I bill per hour (unless a specific contract for a set amount of work is agreed upon otherwise) at an hourly rate of Rate. Each line item will be described and commented on the invoice and time is specified in units of Billing Increment. Time billed constitutes development time, meeting/working-session time, and in general any other time at my expense geared toward your project with the exception of any travel time. Meetings that incur a fair amount of small talk and/or non-business activity will not be billed.
The rate of invoicing depends on the amount of monthly work, but typically I invoice twice a month. Payment should be postmarked within Payment Period of the invoice date, though I always appreciate payment as soon as possible. After Non-payment Period of non-payment, I reserve the right to put work on hold until payment is received.
Work is limited to a maximum of Project Effort unless additional hours are pre-coordinated with the client. All source code and other artifacts developed under this agreement will remain the sole property of the client.
