NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and conditions set forth herein, and intending to be legally bound hereby, each of Uniwebb and Client agrees as follows:
1.1. Performance of Services. Uniwebb will provide Client with certain services as mutually agreed by Uniwebb and Client, and any incidental services, functions or responsibilities not specifically described in this Agreement or Authorization Form, but that are required for the proper performance of such described services, functions and responsibilities (collectively, the "Services").

1.3. Uniwebb Personnel. The persons assigned by Uniwebb to perform the Services shall have appropriate technical and professional skills to enable them to perform the Services and shall perform their duties in a professional manner, consistent with generally accepted industry standards.

Uniwebb shall perform the Services either at Client's or Uniwebb's facilities and that of Uniwebb's personnel, as appropriate and as agreed to by the parties.
2.1 Client Ownership of Deliverables. During the course of Services or provision of Products, Uniwebb may develop materials and media, for Client's use and retention, defined in Section 1.2 as "Developed Materials." These Developed Materials may include graphics, written copy, images, software code, data, documents, and other media. Developed Materials is herein further defined as such materials created by Uniwebb exclusively and specifically for Client, to which Uniwebb releases in writing any claim of ownership or rights of use, outside of Services to Client. Generally, Developed Materials shall include materials which have been created and fundamentally rely upon use of Client's Proprietary Materials (as defined in this Agreement) to function and exist. This includes such items as Client's website front-end, as served to visitors, documentation created by Uniwebb personnel covering Clients project and Services provided, and other materials which are expressly created solely for use by Client. Developed Materials shall not include such materials and items as have previously been created by Uniwebb, or created for use by others, and not exclusively by Client. Even if materials have been created, modified, enhanced, or otherwise changed during the course of the performance of Services to Client, such materials shall not be deemed to have been developed 1) fundamentally relying upon Client's Proprietary Materials or 2) exclusively for use and ownership by Client.
2.2 Delivery of Developed Materials. Client understands that ownership of Developed Materials is transferred by Uniwebb to Client in accordance with this Agreement. This process is termed the "Delivery" of Developed Materials. Uniwebb reserves the right to withhold the Delivery of Developed Materials if Client is in breach of this Agreement, other agreements between Uniwebb and Client, and/or Authorization Form, including, but not limited to non-payment of fees by Client to Uniwebb. Following the fulfillment of these agreements and full payment, as requested by Uniwebb, Uniwebb shall Deliver Developed Materials to Client, by providing written notice of transfer of ownership, together with any associated copyright and other intellectual property rights. Following Delivery, Developed Materials shall be the sole and exclusive property of Client and shall be treated as if they were works made for hire by Uniwebb for the Client. Following Delivery, Uniwebb irrevocably assigns, transfers and conveys to Client all right, title and interest in and to such Developed Materials, together with any associated copyright and other intellectual property rights.

Client's Proprietary Materials are hereby understood to encompass materials and media provided by Client to Uniwebb for the purpose of Uniwebb's performance of Services, over which Client holds a claim of ownership, trademark, copyright, or other intellectual or proprietary rights, including such items as web domains, marketing materials, and other assets, items, and intellectual property. Uniwebb waives any claim to ownership of Client Proprietary Materials, and shall promptly return to Client or destroy any and all Client Proprietary Materials upon Client's written request. In addition, Uniwebb may purchase or acquire materials and intellectual property on Client's behalf, such as web domains, security certificates, and other types of certification.

Uniwebb reserves the right to withhold the transfer of materials acquired by Uniwebb with the intent of transferring to Client as Client Proprietary Materials, if Client breaches this Agreement or Authorization Form, including but not limited to instances of Client's failure to make full payment to Uniwebb for Services.
2.4 Uniwebb Proprietary Materials. During the performance of Services by Uniwebb for the Client, Uniwebb may develop, modify, extend, alter, or otherwise make use of software components, intellectual property, and other proprietary assets and technologies, which do not constitute Developed Materials, as defined above, as they do not depend fundamentally on Client's Proprietary Materials to function or exist and/or were not created or modified by Uniwebb exclusively to provide proprietary ownership of said materials by Client. These materials shall be collectively known as "Uniwebb Proprietary Materials." Client and Uniwebb acknowledge that Uniwebb retains sole and exclusive ownership over Uniwebb Proprietary Materials. Use of Uniwebb Proprietary Materials during Uniwebb's Service to the Client, in conjunction or combination with Developed Materials or Client Proprietary Materials, or in any other way by Client is fully dependent on Uniwebb's authorization of such use. Uniwebb reserves the right to authorize or deny authorization of any such use, for any reason, with or without good cause, at any time, unless otherwise agreed in writing by Uniwebb. Uniwebb reserves the right to issue or deny the Client a license to use said Uniwebb Proprietary Components, without charge or for a fee.

The applicable Authorization Form for Services will outline the specific fee structure for the Services provided as outlined in the Authorization Form. Uniwebb will inform the Client of different fees and fee structures for different types of Services and materials provided to Client, for which there may be provided additional Authorization Forms. However, Authorization Forms may not be provided in each instance, provided that Client has otherwise been notified of the fees and fee structure, by other means.
3.2. Time-Based Fees. Unless otherwise specified, and/or as agreed through Authorization Form or other agreement, Uniwebb's Services will carry fees based on the time spent during their performance. Following the execution of this Agreement through Authorization Form or by other means, as described in this Agreement, Client agrees to be subject to time-based and other fees charged by Uniwebb, as part of the Services provided by Uniwebb and the standard fees charged for such Services by Uniwebb as reasonably determined by Uniwebb. Client reserves the right to request reports of time spent on Services and associated fees at any time, to which Uniwebb shall provide the requested report of time and fees within a reasonable timeframe. Ultimately, it shall be Client's responsibility to request updates or reports of time usage and associated fees. While Uniwebb will strive to keep client informed, through such measures as making time records available online when possible, and through regular invoicing, Uniwebb is not responsible for Client's failure to stay abreast of time expenditure by Uniwebb and accrued fees. Client understands that excessive requests for time reporting may be subject to time-based fees for their preparation by Uniwebb. Client is responsible for requesting in writing budgeting parameters or imposing Service limits to act as guidelines for Uniwebb in limiting the time spent on the performance of Services. If such requests are made by Client, Uniwebb shall make a reasonable effort to ensure Services are not performed beyond the requested limits or guidelines. If no such requests or guidelines are provided by Client, it shall be at Uniwebb's discretion to perform Services in an amount and of a nature as Uniwebb's deems appropriate and necessary on Client's behalf, in accordance with generally-accepted Uniwebb standards and Uniwebb company policy. Client understands that the accrual of time-based fees for Services performed in no way represents any guarantee or warranty of specific-results, deliverables, or Developed Materials from Uniwebb.

Client shall pre-pay or reimburse Uniwebb for all pre-approved expenses, including but not limited to Third-Party Component costs, travel and living expenses, and other costs incurred by Uniwebb during the performance of Services or provision of Products. Any such expenses shall be reasonably incurred and properly documented by Uniwebb and Uniwebb's personnel. Uniwebb shall make Client aware of any expenses prior to incurring them for Client's approval. Following said approval, Client shall be obligated to make payment to Uniwebb as would govern other fees according to the provisions of this Agreement.
3.6. Payment. Client recognizes that timely and full payment is necessary for Uniwebb to operate as a business and provide Services and Products. Client recognizes that failure to make full payment in the manner outlined in this Agreement may cause damage to Uniwebb beyond the amount of payment due or the fees for Services and Products. As a condition of Service or Product provision, Client shall provide Uniwebb with valid information for making electronic payments to Uniwebb, as well as authorizing Uniwebb to make electronic withdrawals as outlined in this Agreement and any applicable Authorization Form. Client shall provide Uniwebb with valid bank account information, a valid credit card account, and/or other information, as requested by Uniwebb, which shall be used to make payment. Uniwebb shall charge Client for Services and Products in amounts and on a schedule as described in this Agreement and/or applicable Authorization Form. Client is responsible for ensuring that the bank accounts or lines of credit debited by Uniwebb include sufficient balances for full payment at the time of said charges. Uniwebb is not responsible for any charges, fees, or penalties that may result due to requests for electronic withdrawals from Client's accounts. In the event that Uniwebb is charge penalties or fees as a result of Client's failure to provide accurate payment information, or carry a sufficient balance, Client agrees to cover in full any such fees or expenses incurred by Uniwebb. In the event that Client fails to make payment in full to Uniwebb at the time of each withdrawal, Client agrees to do everything in its power to make payment as quickly as possible, by any means necessary. Uniwebb reserves the right to immediately stop Services, reclaim Products, and withhold the transfer of any Deliverables to Client if payment conditions are not met as set forth herein, as well as reclaim any previously provided Deliverables, as well as revoke any previously provided licenses for the use of Uniwebb's Proprietary Components or Products.

This Agreement and all disputes between the parties concerning the subject matter hereof or thereof, shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the Laws of California, without giving effect to its principles governing conflicts of law. Client and Uniwebb agree that Jurisdiction of any litigation arising out of the terms of this Agreement, applicable Authorization Form, and other agreements between Uniwebb and Client shall be in the Superior Court of California Sacramento County, California, or a jurisdiction of Uniwebb's choosing.
7.9. Equitable Relief. Each party agrees that either party's violation of the provisions of this Agreement, applicable Authorization Form, or other agreements between Uniwebb and Client may cause immediate and irreparable harm to the other party for which money damages may not constitute an adequate remedy at law. Therefore, the parties agree that, in the event either party breaches or threatens to breach said provisions or covenants, the other party shall have the right to seek, in a court of competent jurisdiction (as specified in Section 7.8), an injunction to restrain said breach or threatened breach, without posting any bond or other security. Client may not assign for the benefit of creditors any provisions of this Agreement and/or financial obligations entered into hereunder.

7.11. Entire Agreement; Amendment. This Agreement sets forth the entire understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and thereof, except with the respect of the provisions of Section 7.12. This Agreement supersedes all prior or contemporaneous representations, discussions, negotiations, letters, proposals, agreements and understandings between the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof, whether written or oral, except with the respect of the provisions of Section 7.12. This Agreement may be amended, modified or supplemented only by a written instrument duly executed by an authorized representative of each of the parties.
7.12. Conflict with this Agreement.

In the event that there is a conflict between this Agreement and applicable Authorization Form, or any other agreement, in part or in full, between Client and Uniwebb, it shall be under Uniwebb's full-discretion to determine which instrument will control.
7.13. Severability. Any provision of this Agreement that is determined to be invalid or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability in such jurisdiction, without rendering invalid or unenforceable the remaining provisions of this Agreement, or affecting the validity or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction. If a court of competent jurisdiction, according to Section 7.8, declares any provision of this Agreement to be invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree that the court making such determination shall have the power to reduce the scope, duration, or area of the provision, to delete specific words or phrases, or to replace the provision with a provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the original intention of the parties, and this Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified.
7.14. Non-Waiver. No term or provision of this Agreement will be considered waived by either party, and no breach consented to by either party, unless such waiver or consent is in writing and signed on behalf of the party against whom it is asserted. No consent to or waiver of a breach of this Agreement by either party, whether express or implied, will constitute a consent to, waiver of, or excuse for any other, different, or subsequent breach of this Agreement by such party.
7.15. Execution and Delivery. This Agreement shall be deemed executed by both parties when one of Client's duly authorized representatives has executed a corresponding Authorization Form, makes payment of an invoice, purchase order, submits a contact form through Uniwebb's website, or otherwise authorizes or completes any written instrument, whether through physical or electronic means, acknowledging entry into this Agreement. Said Authorization Form shall constitute the execution of This Agreement by both Parties. Said Authorization Form, once executed by either party, may be delivered to the parties by facsimile or electronic transmission of a copy thereof bearing the signature of either party.
