Terms of Service

1. Terms of Service

THIS TERMS OF SERVICE constitutes a legally binding agreement between Unima LLC (The “Agency”), a limited liability company organized under the laws of the state of Wyoming, and the Client, whether personally or on behalf of a company (”Client”) and are designed to govern the user’s use of any of the services we provide through our website. Any updates, changes, or modifications to the terms of service will be updated on this page. Signing up for our services means complete acceptance from your side. If you do not agree with the terms mentioned, please refrain from submitting any personal information and using this website.

2. Scope of work, Services, and Support

2.1 Services.

Subject to these Terms of Service, Unima LLC will carry out reasonable efforts to provide you the agreed-upon Service(s) stated on the https://www.unima.io website. the Agency has the right to discontinue, terminate, modify or abort any Services with immediate effect.

2.2 Service Scope of Work.

Once agreed to this Agreement, the Client is hiring the Agency to produce the Work Product agreed upon on the Scope of Work file that is shared through email(s) under the (unima.io) domain. The Scope of Work lays out all the related objectives, deliverables, milestones, and required investments to sufficiently produce the Work Product.

2.3 Support.

Unima LLC ensures that we provide sufficient support and feedback to any on-going agreement and before acceptance of the final version of the Work Product. However, the Agency will not provide support for any deliverable once the Client accepts it unless otherwise agreed in writing.

2.4 Meetings; Feedbacks. The Agency will require the Client to provide timely feedback and to attend all agreed-upon meetings. Any delay in any of the feedbacks or the meetings will void the deadline and the contract will be an ongoing contract.

3. Ownership and Licenses

3.1 Client Owns All Work Product.

As part of the agreement, the Agency is creating a Work Product (e.g. Website) for the Client. The Agency hereby gives the Client this work product once the Client pays for it in full. This means the Agency is giving the Client all of its rights, titles, and interests in and to the Work Product (including intellectual property rights), and the Client will be the sole owner of it. The Client can use the Work Product however it wants or it can decide not to use it at all. The Client, for example, can modify, destroy, or sell it, as it sees fit.

3.2 Agency's Use Of Website.

Once the Agency gives the Work Product to the Client, the Agency does not have any rights to it, except those that the Client explicitly gives the Agency here. The Client gives permission to use the website as part of portfolios and websites, in galleries, and in other media, so long as it is to showcase the work and not for any other purpose. The Client does not give permission to sell or otherwise use the Work Product to make money or for any other commercial use.

3.3 Agency's Help Securing Ownership.

In the future, the Client may need the Agency's help to show that the Client owns the Work Product or to complete the transfer. The Agency agrees to help with that. For example, the Agency may have to sign a patent application. The Client will pay any required expenses for this. If the Client can’t find the Agency, the Agency agrees that the Client can act on the Agency's behalf to accomplish the same thing. The following language gives the Client that right: if the Client can’t find the Agency after spending reasonable effort trying to do so, the Agency hereby irrevocably designates and appoints the Client as the Agency's agent and attorney-in-fact, which appointment is coupled with an interest, to act for the Agency and on the Agency's behalf to execute, verify, and file the required documents and to take any other legal action to accomplish the purposes of paragraph 3.1 (Client Owns All Work Product).

3.4 Agency's IP That Is Not Work Product.

During the course of this project, the Agency might use intellectual property that the Agency owns or has licensed from a third party, but that does not qualify as “work product.” This is called “background IP.” Possible examples of background IP are developed wireframes, the Agency’s UX-UI developed outside the Client’s engagement, pre-existing code, type fonts, properly-licensed stock photos, and web application tools. The Agency is not giving the Client this background IP. But, as part of the Contract, the Agency is giving the Client a right to use and license (with the right to sublicense) the background IP to develop, market, sell, and support the Client’s products and services. The Client may use this background IP worldwide and free of charge, but it cannot transfer its rights to the background IP. The Client cannot sell or license the background IP separately from its products or services. The Agency cannot take back this grant, and this grant does not end when the Work Product is delivered.

3.5 Agency's Right To Use Client IP.

The Agency may need to use the Client’s intellectual property to do its job. For example, if the Client is hiring the Agency to build a website, the Agency may have to use the Client’s logo. The Client agrees to let the Agency use the Client’s intellectual property and other intellectual property that the Client controls to the extent reasonably necessary to do the Agency's job. Beyond that, the Client is not giving the Agency any intellectual property rights, unless specifically stated otherwise in this Contract.

3.6 Work Product Produced During the Free Trial.

The Agency and the Client may engage free of charge for a duration of 1 week. During this Free Trial the Agency owns all Work Product, unless (i) the Agency stated in writing that the Client owns the Work Product, (ii) the Client paid the agreed upon amount to own the Work Product, (iii) the Client has agreed to engage with the Agency to work on producing the Work Product and will pay the agreed upon amount at the agreed upon times according to Section 5 (Payment).

9. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION

9.1 Overview.

This Agreement imposes special restrictions on how the Client and the Agency must handle confidential information. These obligations are explained in this section.

9.2 The Client’s Confidential Information.

While working for the Client, the Agency may come across, or be given, Client information that is confidential. This is information like customer lists, business strategies, research & development notes, statistics about a website, and other information that is private. The Agency promises to treat this information as if it is the Agency's own confidential information. The Agency may use this information to do its job under this Agreement, but not for anything else. For example, if the Client lets the Agency use a customer list to send out a newsletter, the Agency cannot use those email addresses for any other purpose. The one exception to this is if the Client gives the Agency written permission to use the information for another purpose, the Agency may use the information for that purpose, as well. When this Agreement ends, the Agency must give back or destroy all confidential information, and confirm that it has done so. The Agency promises that it will not share confidential information with a third party, unless the Client gives the Agency written permission first. The Agency must continue to follow these obligations, even after the Agreement ends. The Agency's responsibilities only stop if the Agency can show any of the following: (i) that the information was already public when the Agency came across it; (ii) the information became public after the Agency came across it, but not because of anything the Agency did or didn’t do; (iii) the Agency already knew the information when the Agency came across it and the Agency didn’t have any obligation to keep it secret; (iv) a third party provided the Agency with the information without requiring that the Agency keep it a secret; or (v) the Agency created the information on its own, without using anything belonging to the Client.

9.3 Third-Party Confidential Information.

It’s possible the Client and the Agency each have access to confidential information that belongs to third parties. The Client and the Agency each promise that it will not share with the other party confidential information that belongs to third parties, unless it is allowed to do so. If the Client or the Agency is allowed to share confidential information with the other party and does so, the sharing party promises to tell the other party in writing of any special restrictions regarding that information.

12.2 Client Indemnity.

13. General

13.1 Modification; Waiver.

To change anything in this Terms of Service, the Client and the Agency must agree to that change in writing and sign a document showing their agreement.

13.2 Notices.

(a) Over the course of this Agreement, one party may need to send a notice to the other party. For the notice to be valid, it must be in writing and delivered in one of the following ways: personal delivery, email, or certified or registered mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested). The notice must be delivered to the party’s address listed at the end of this Agreement or to another address that the party has provided in writing as an appropriate address to receive notice.

(b) The timing of when a notice is received can be very important. To avoid confusion, a valid notice is considered received as follows: (i) if delivered personally, it is considered received immediately; (ii) if delivered by email, it is considered received upon acknowledgment of receipt; (iii) if delivered by registered or certified mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested), it is considered received upon receipt as indicated by the date on the signed receipt. If a party refuses to accept notice or if notice cannot be delivered because of a change in address for which no notice was given, then it is considered received when the notice is rejected or unable to be delivered. If the notice is received after 5:00pm on a business day at the location specified in the address for that party, or on a day that is not a business day, then the notice is considered received at 9:00am on the next business day.

13.3 Severability.

This section deals with what happens if a portion of the Terms of Service is found to be unenforceable. If that’s the case, the unenforceable portion will be changed to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable, unless that change is not permitted by law, in which case the portion will be disregarded. If any portion of the Terms of Service is changed or disregarded because it is unenforceable, the rest of the Terms of Service is still enforceable.

13.4 Governing Law. The laws of the state of Wyoming govern the rights and obligations of the Client and the Agency under this Terms of Service, without regard to conflict of law principles of that state.
