Fees

IPPWORLD is not responsible for errors indicated on drafts or copies supposed to have been returned to IPPWORLD but lost in transit.

IPPWORLD will make every endeavor to fulfill Deliverables according to agreed specifications and quality finish. Owing to inherent conflicts in software, varying climatic conditions, manufacturer's equipment behavior or other causes beyond IPPWORLD's reasonable control, such non-performance shall not be a default hereunder or a cause for Client to cancel or terminate an existing service contract thereof.

Re-production Charge

In the event of changes to source contents by Client after commencement on Work, where such changes necessitate rework by IPPWORLD, Client agrees to compensate IPPWORLD according to the extent and complexity of the rework. Where necessary, the initial delivery date indicated will be extended.

Delivery

Delivery dates indicated to Client are best estimates and IPPWORLD shall not be liable for any damage or loss to Client or their representatives that may arise directly or indirectly from a late delivery. In the event of prolong delays occurring at Client's side, delivery dates may be consequentially extended.

Should Client require Deliverables sooner than the initial delivery date indicated, IPPWORLD will make every effort possible to meet that date, provided that Client agrees to compensate IPPWORLD on any overtime or other expenses that IPPWORLD may incurred in order to meet the earlier delivery date.

Appointment of Third Party

IPPWORLD may involve a subcontractor in the process of performing Work, with the condition that IPPWORLD bears full liability and responsibility for the activities performed by these subcontractors.

Defects in quality or dimension in any Deliverables delivered by IPPWORLD shall not be a cause for cancellation of the remaining Deliverables or the service contract itself. Client or their representative accepts that editorial or concepts may be read or viewed differently and IPPWORLD shall not be liable for any loss of Client's advertising image, sales impact, or whatsoever.

Illegal Matters

In the event of industrial or civil disturbance, fire, acts of war, natural disaster or other causes that may affect IPPWORLD's ability to produce and deliver the agreed Deliverables within timelines agreed, IPPWORLD will notify Client on the circumstances affecting Work or Deliverables.
