We are also not responsible for cost adjustments due to exchange rate fluctuations between United States Dollars and other currencies.
    • Late Payments. Payments received more than seven (7) days after the respective due date for the invoice will be considered “Past Due Balance.” Any Past Due Balance will be subject to a monthly late fee of five percent (5%) of the Past Due Balance as of the first of the month in which there is a Past Due Balance. Streamline Jacks reserves the right to temporarily suspend Services until Client pays the Past Due Balance. Such temporary suspension will not affect the other amounts due and owed to Streamline Jacks under this Agreement.
    • Premium & Rush Fees. The Client may request Services that We determine, in our sole discretion, does not account for an adequate time to complete the Services on the requested timeline and according to Our usual standards and timelines. If the Client makes such a request, We reserve the right to charge the Client a premium fee not to exceed fifty percent (50%) of the Total Project Estimate (“Premium Fee”) to account for the truncated timeline and required time and resource allocation outside of normal working hours, such as evenings, weekends, holidays, or during pre-scheduled personal and vacation time. Streamline Jacks requires two to four (2-4) weeks of advance notice to complete standard projects timely.
    • Collection. We will charge the Client a fee of fifty dollars ($50.00) for any returned check you submit to Us for payment, plus any additional related bank fees incurred from the returned check. Client will pay all attorneys’ fees and additional related costs incurred by Streamline Jacks in the collection of any amounts due Streamline Jacks that Client does not pay according to the terms of this Agreement.
  • TAXES. The charges for the Services do not include taxes. If Streamline Jacks is required to pay any sales, use or similar taxes to federal, state, or local governments related to the Services.

Client will not be responsible for taxes associated with Streamline Jacks’ income and payroll taxes.
  • EXPENSES. The Client must approve any additional expenses that arise during the course of any projects, including but not limited to photography, fonts, production expenses, postage, travel, lodging, sales tax, messenger services, shipping, Client-required software, web hosting, and printing fees (“Additional Expenses”).

In some cases, third-party service providers may require the Client to provide credit card information for ongoing monthly fees. Any third-party fee increases are outside of the control of Streamline Jacks, and Client will handle all such transactions directly, with Streamline Jacks’ consultation as requested.
  • TECHNOLOGY VALIDATION. In most cases, the Client works with Streamline Jacks to design and build a solution on a specific platform that has previously been decided upon by the Client, including but not limited to Shopify, BigCommerce, Squarespace and WordPress+Woo. Unless Streamline Jacks’ services have been retained to research and determine the best platform for the Client based on functional and technical requirements, it is the Client’s sole responsibility to ensure that the platform meets all the needs of the Client’s business and processes. If during the course of the project the Client determines that the selected platform is no longer adequate, work performed up to that point will remain billable fees payable to Streamline Jacks. 
  • CLIENT APPROVALS. The Client is responsible for approval of all Deliverables at each stage of the project.
