Services and Scope of Service
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein and subject to any services as agreed by the parties from time to time to be set out in the statement of work annexed or to be annexed hereto, Comms8 would provide marketing and PR services basing on the following assumptions, schedule and timings :-
The parties agree that the project schedule and cost shall be determined on the basis of the following assumptions :-
● All feedback provided by the Client will be consolidated and agreed by all relevant parties throughout the review stages.
● The Client is responsible for ensuring all agreed creative solutions abide by all relevant product and promotional legal, compliance and regulatory matters.
● The Client is responsible to ensure the promotion or discount will be valid during the Campaign and the logistic and infrastructure will be working smoothly during the Campaign, such as discounted code redemption, product listing in the e-Commence channel, product tags, order and delivery process, etc.
● The Client will need to ensure its official account and shop on the social media and e-Commerce channels are legit and compliant with regulations and rules.
● The Client will provide image and video assets for Comms8 and Influencers to use. If this library isn’t available, or isn’t available to the scale that Comms8 require, then Comms8 may require more budget for stock photography.
● All out-of-pocket expenses for materials and expenses associated with travel to complete work are not included in this budget. They will be billed back to the client. All expenses will be agreed with the client before being committed.
SCHEDULE AND TIMING
● The estimated milestone dates shared by Comms8 are target dates only and do not reflect the combined client/agency availability.
● The milestone dates are dependent on one another. If one milestone is delayed, all subsequent milestones will also be delayed.
● Any additional work to restart the project or create incremental out-of-scope deliverables will necessarily require an additional fee calculated on a time and materials basis.
● The estimated Campaign schedule and fees are based on the assumption that appropriate client representatives will be available to review and respond to our draft deliverables in a timely manner (3 business day turnaround for draft deliverables in general or shorter/longer timings will be agreed in advance).
● The Campaign Closure event is defined as a milestone (above); if final approval or acceptance of Campaign closure is not received within 15 days of final delivery, the Campaign will be considered closed.
● Unless otherwise specified, Comms8 will revise draft deliverables once to produce the final deliverables.
● Any significant changes on the Campaign direction or Campaign Period after the final Influencer list is signed-off that leads to influencers dropping out of the project, Comms8 is not accountable for the outcome and the impact on the result, e.g. if one of the two influencers dropped out due to the change of Campaign Period, then the total number of influencer post will be reduced, and the Service Buyer is still obligated to pay Comms8 the full fee.
● If the Campaign is cancelled due to the delay or changes by the Client or natural disaster, the Client will still need to pay the agency for the work that has been done to date and cover any additional expenses caused by the changes
