(a) All work product created for the Client or provided to the Client under this Agreement such as, but not limited to, source code, object code, artwork, schematic diagrams, etc., including, without limitation, any works of authorship resulting from JS’s services during the Term of this Agreement and any works in progress resulting from such services, will be works-made-for-hire and Client will be deemed the sole owner of any and all rights of every nature in such works, whether such rights are now known or hereafter defined or discovered, with the right to use the works in perpetuity in any manner Client determines in its sole discretion without any further payment to JS.
(b) Works-made-for-hire do not include subject matter that meets all of the following criteria: (1) is conceived, developed and created by JS on JS’s own time without using the Client’s equipment, supplies or facilities or any trade secrets or confidential information, (2) is unrelated to the actual or reasonably anticipated business or research and development of Client of which JS is or becomes aware; and (3) does not result from any work performed by JS for Client.
16. Joint Protection of Sensitive Information and Non Disclosure.
During the course of this Agreement, Client and JS may share information about their customers, contacts, business, and other proprietary information. This information is generally accepted to be of a sensitive nature and the release of this information either intentionally or unintentionally could have major repercussions on the business of Client and/or JS. Therefore all information conveyed to either Client or JS will be assumed to be proprietary, sensitive and confidential and any disclosure or release or conveyance of this information should always be cleared in writing from the other party prior to disclosure unless ordered to do so by court action.
17. Bugs, No Warranties, Errors, Browser Compatibility, Site Hacks, & Backups.
The internet is a huge place filled with many types of browsers, computers, operating systems, 3rd party software, etc. JS will attempt to complete each task in the efforts to make them available to all popular browsers, computers, and operating systems such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari.
The application code is provided as-is since it is truly impossible to warranty such work when so many various types of issues can cause certain coding to fail. JS uses best practices to try and make its application code functional to the highest degree across a majority of systems, browsers, and devices, however Client understands that not all issues, both display and functionality, can ever be coded to work on every computer that runs it.
Hackers, hack attempts, viruses, Trojans, and other malicious software and individuals are a normal and usual threat to the security of any website application. As such, Client will be informed of what efforts are to be taken at Client’s expense to attempt to keep the site free from harm, but more notably, Client will pursue at their expense/time efforts on how to keep the site’s code and data backed up on a regular basis and accessible to the Client’s desired audience of users.
18. Default/Opportunity to Cure
If for any reason Client believes JS is in default of this Agreement or any corresponding Word Order Request, Client agrees to notify JS in writing within 15 days of said alleged default, and will give JS 30 days from their receipt of such alleged default to cure the alleged default if it is determined to exist.
19. Form Facilitation/Copyrighting Services
Client is solely responsible for the content of any application submitted to “Justice Solutions LLC” and asserts its sole right to seek copyright protection (if such form requests JS to do so) waiving any liability from “Justice Solutions LLC” for an application filed with content to which client does not have the sole and exclusive rights.
Client acknowledges JS is not an attorney or law firm and does not provide legal advice. Nothing in this information is intended nor should be considered legal advice. Each legal (matter) is unique and specific; as such, JS encourages every individual and business to seek guidance from legal counsel concerning specific legal matters. “We are not attorneys licensed to practice law in Florida and may not give legal advice or accept fees for legal advices.”
