These Standard Terms & Conditions (the “Terms & Conditions”) are made effective as of the Effective Date set forth in the Statement of Work (the “SOW”) by and between NKP Medical Marketing, Inc. (“NKP”) and the client designated in the SOW (“Client”). Client agrees to be bound by both the Terms & Conditions and the SOW, which are collectively referred to herein as this “Agreement”. In the event of a conflict between the Terms & Conditions and the SOW, the terms of the SOW shall prevail. NKP and Client are sometimes referred to herein individually as a “party” and collectively as the “parties”.

  1. Services: NKP agrees to design, build and host Client’s website and provide other services relating to the website (the “Services”) as described in the SOW, and in consideration for the Services, Client agrees to pay NKP compensation as described in the SOW.
  2. Client Obligations: Client agrees that:
    1. All requests made by Client will be reasonable in nature and within the scope of the Services purchased.
    2. Client will respond promptly to NKP’s requests for assistance, and in no event more than three (3) business days thereafter. Failure to respond promptly will result in unnecessary delays, the cost of which shall be borne by Client. NKP is not responsible for additional fees, time, or expenses incurred because of delays caused by Client’s lack of or untimely response, feedback or approval, including Client’s failure to initiate the kick-off meeting or design process.
  3. Intellectual Property:
    1. Client IP: All domains, designs, content, pictures, logos, text, and other documentation provided by Client to NKP (“Client IP”) shall remain the sole property of Client.

    2. NKP IP: NKP owns all web applications, plugins and software used, developed or invented by NKP to provide the Services. Unless otherwise specifically provided in this Agreement, no right or license under any copyright, trademark, patent or other intellectual property right or license is granted by this Agreement. NKP reserves all rights not expressly granted herein.
  4. Independent Contractor: The relationship created by this Agreement is one between NKP as an independent contractor, on the one hand, and Client as the client, on the other hand. Client is not the employer of NKP, and NKP or its assigned agents will not be treated as employees of Client for tax or any other purposes, including but not limited to employee rights and benefits. NKP shall not have any authority to enter into contracts that bind Client or create obligations on part of Client without prior authorization of Client.
  5. Confidential Information:
