If CUSTOMER subscribes, ECS will be CUSTOMER's first point of contact for all Office 365 administrative and support tasks. ECS will provide free remote/phone support for Office 365. CUSTOMER understands that ECS is simply providing a first-tier of support and may not be able to field all support requests. In these cases, CUSTOMER may still need to contact Office 365 support. 

4. Compensation.  CUSTOMER shall pay ECS compensation for Goods and Services upon receipt of an invoice.  As this service is billed per month on a subscription basis, CUSTOMER is requested to keep a valid credit card on file with ECS.  This credit card will be billed automatically by ECS one day prior to the renewal date.  Should payment not be received within 5 days, support services and delivery of goods may be suspended (at ECS’s discretion) and CUSTOMER shall be subject to collections terms listed below.

5. Appointment Cancelation. CUSTOMER is to call to cancel an appointment at least 48-hours prior to the scheduled appointment time.  E-mail is not an acceptable form of contact.  This allows ECS enough time to fill that appointment time with another client.  If CUSTOMER cancels within the 48-hours prior to the scheduled appointment time or is a NO-SHOW, CUSTOMER will be invoiced for 1-hour, plus the travel fee if it was an on-site appointment.  Remote support appointments, if scheduled at least 48 hours in advanced, are subject to this cancelation policy.

6. Collections Terms. All past due accounts may be changed to COD status at ECS’s discretion. Accounts past due may be sent immediately to collections, and are assessed a 1.5% monthly finance charge on all outstanding balances.

13. Limitation of Warranty/Liability. CUSTOMER understands that ECS makes no guarantees, beyond those stipulated in writing, as to CUSTOMERS satisfaction or as to the usability of any and all programming/service work performed on or after the date of this contract.  ECS, in no way, guarantees that software/programming work will be free from “bugs” / defects within the product AND cannot be held liable for loss or damage, direct, consequential, or incidental arising out of the use of provided software/programming OR the inability to utilize software/programming products as desired.

14. Ownership and Intellectual Property.  All programming work performed is the intellectual property of ECS unless otherwise stipulated.  CUSTOMER may use programming as they see fit within their organization, but may not resell said programming unless the original version is completely destroyed and is no longer in use.  ECS may use the procedures, scripts, coding, layouts, and other elements within other projects.  Data entered by CUSTOMER within the database/programming will never be used for any other purpose than in the design and programming of the CUSTOMERS database/programming.  It is ECS’s understanding that no coding used in the development of programming for CUSTOMER infringes upon the intellectual property rights of any other entity and, as such, is original property of ECS.
