Terms & Conditions
These Agnetix Service Terms and Conditions together with any terms and conditions in any Agnetix Statement of Work (collectively, the “Terms and Conditions”) set forth the terms and conditions pursuant to which Agnetix will provide Services to customer (“Customer”).

Agnetix will provide such resources and utilize such employees and/or consultants as it deems necessary to perform the Services. Customer agrees to furnish Agnetix with adequate technical assistance, network access, materials, and an environment suitable for Agnetix to be able to perform the Services. Customer further agrees to provide Agnetix with such technology owned or controlled by Customer (the “Licensed Technology”) as Agnetix reasonably requires to perform the Services.
Customer and Agnetix agree to cooperate in good faith to achieve completion of the Services in a timely and professional manner. Agnetix shall bear no liability or otherwise be responsible for delays in the provision of Services or any portion thereof occasioned by Customer’s failure timely to complete a Customer task or adhere to a Customer schedule.
02 Term of Terms and Conditions
These Terms and Conditions commence on the earlier of the date of the Statement of Work or date that Agnetix begins provided Services (“Effective Date”) and, unless terminated earlier pursuant to the terms of the Statement of Work, shall continue in force until exhaustion of the number of consulting hours identified in the Statement of Work or as otherwise agreed to by Agnetix and Customer.
03 Right to Perform Services
Customer acknowledges that Agnetix has extensive expertise, experience, and proprietary products and tools in the area of lighting, and that Agnetix intends to utilize such expertise, experience, products and tools in providing consulting services and other services in such field to other clients. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions shall restrict or limit Agnetix from performing such development, consulting or other services to any other entity in any industry.
04 Service Fees, Expenses and Invoicing
For the Services provided by Agnetix, Customer agrees to pay Agnetix the fees set forth in a quote issued by Agnetix to Customer or as otherwise agreed to by Agnetix and Customer (the “Payment Schedule”) plus any applicable sales or use taxes or other charges.
