Assumptions & Exclusions

Last updated October 1, 2021.

Client agrees not to solicit, or make offers of employment to, or enter into consultant relationships with any ElleSpark employee involved, directly or indirectly, in the performance of growth hacking services hereunder for twelve (12) months after the date such employee ceases to perform services under these terms. Client shall not be prevented from hiring any employee who responds to a general hiring program conducted in the ordinary course of business and not specifically directed to such growth hacking employees.

Changes in scope are not allowed. Additional or different services requested by the client may be accommodated at an additional cost through a separate Statement of Work or a Project Change Order.

At the Proposal/SOW  stage there will still be unknowns about Client’s state of business, business processes, cashflow, technology stack, and specific issues. The Proposal/SOW has been created with the information that we have today, and as such, will always be as comprehensive as we can make it without specific knowledge. The budget has been generated to cover such information that Supplier was not aware of at the time, however, there are elements of the proposal that appear with asterisks to indicate that there may be extra costs relating to these items when full discovery has been completed. The costs for these items will be scoped separately in addition to the items covered in the Proposal/SOW.

DELIVERABLE

Acceptance

Last updated October 1, 2021.

Deliverable Acceptance

All project deliverable Materials released for approval will be recorded and tracked by the Client project manager. All Materials will be submitted by Supplier to the Client project manager. Upon receipt of a deliverable Material, the Client Project Manager will coordinate the evaluation and approval of that deliverable Material within five (5) business days, unless another timeframe is agreed upon. Approvals via email are acceptable if they are explicit, as to which deliverable Material is being accepted. The acceptance or rejection of Materials will be based on the description and completion criteria herein.

A deliverable Material is acknowledged in one of the following ways:

1. Approved As-Is. Indicates the acceptance of the deliverable Material prior to the expiration of the deemed accepted date. The deliverable does not require any modifications.

2. Refused With Problem Report. If a deliverable Material is rejected, a detailed description of why it was rejected must be included on the form. If required, a meeting can be held to discuss the deliverable Material in detail. Every effort will be made to detail all errors and omissions in the first rejection.

In this case, the deliverable is not considered accepted until the errors and omissions have been corrected. Upon resolution of the problem, Supplier will submit a revised deliverable Material for approval.

The review period for modified Materials will depend upon the number of changes required. The process for review and approval of revised Materials will be the same as that for the original deliverable Material.

Unless previously agreed to during definition of Acceptance Criteria, one resubmitted, owner would be allowed to modify the deliverable and address the items that were specifically rejected. Any additional resubmittals will be evaluated to determine if the change and/or issue procedure should be invoked. A resubmitted deliverable due to an error or omission caused by Supplier will not cause the change procedure to be invoked unless there is a change in scope required.

3. Approved By Default. “Conditional” approvals are not allowed. In the event that a deliverable Material is not either accepted or rejected in the period specified above, an item will be added to the Issues Log, and the escalation procedure will begin.

Supplier will conduct a walkthrough meeting for each Deliverable Acceptance. The walkthrough meeting is held to:

1. Schedule dedicated time to review the Deliverable Acceptance.

2. Minimize uncertainty and ambiguity as to what the Deliverable Acceptance covers and does not cover.

3. Ensure timely approval.

A Final Acceptance of all deliverable Materials will be documented and delivered to Supplier at the completion of the project. This Final Acceptance means that all Materials as defined in the Statement of Work and amended through approved change requests are complete. Final Acceptance is required “prior” to software being promoted to production and going live.
