The Client has requested the provision of the Services by Tash Diaries. Tash Diaries has agreed to provide the Services subject to the Client agreeing to these Terms and Conditions. Upon the Client signing the attached Commercial Terms and paying the Deposit (if any), the parties will have entered into a binding contract whereby the Client will pay for and Tash Diaries will provide the Services on the terms and conditions set out herein (the Contract).
The client covenants and warrants that they have undertaken their own independent assessment of their business needs and that their request for the Services reflects that assessment.

Unless agreed upon by the Client and Tash Diaries, the payment method set out in the Commercial Terms will be used to process payments for future invoices.
If at any time the Client terminates this Agreement, the Client remains liable to pay any invoices issued by Tash Diaries at that time, regardless of whether the full Services have been provided as the Client understands, agrees and acknowledges that Tash Diaries may have sacrificed other opportunities and expended additional resources in anticipation of providing the Services to the Client.

The Client agrees and acknowledges that Tash Diaries will own and maintain the Intellectual Property rights in any materials produced by Tash Diaries in the course of or ancillary to providing the Services. Tash Diaries may licence such rights to the Client upon the completion of the Services.
