Welcome to kpc creative, LLC


            1. AUTHORIZATION

(“Client”) hereby engages kpc creative, LLC (“kpc creative”) for the specific tasks detailed in the proposal attached or above.


The proposal is based on information received prior to submission and sets out estimated costs and fees associated with the completion of the scope of work, as defined in this proposal. Any additions or revisions to the scope of work may result in additional fees and expenses. All requests for changes to the scope of work, including any resulting increase in the fees or expenses, must be agreed to in writing, by email or otherwise, by authorized representatives of both parties before any such changes will be performed. Final fees and expenses shall be shown when an invoice is rendered.

            3. COMPENSATION

All invoices are payable no later than thirty (30) days from the day of receipt. All overdue balances shall be subject to interest. Where applicable, the grant of any ownership rights, license, or rights of copyright is conditioned on receipt by kpc creative of full payment for the services and deliverables provided, including any changes to the scope of work.

            4. EXPENSES

Client shall reimburse kpc creative for all expenses arising from the services performed under this Agreement, including any travel/lodging/meal expenses of staff.  All expenses more than $50 must be pre-approved by an authorized representative of Client. If kpc creative does not receive pre-approval, the expense will not be incurred.  Client agrees that kpc creative will not be responsible for any negative impact resulting from Client’s disapproval of any expense request.


The parties acknowledge that kpc creative is at all times acting as an independent contractor under this Agreement and is not an agent, employee, or partner of Client or in a joint venture with Client. Neither party has any right, power, or authority to enter into any agreement or undertaking for, or act on behalf of, or to act as or be an agent or representative of, or to otherwise bind, the other party.


Client shall own all rights, title and interest in the deliverables and/or items, tangible or intangible, produced under this Agreement (“Work Product”). Client owns all copyrights and all moral rights under the Copyright Act, patents, trademarks, trade secrets, industrial designs and all other rights pertaining to the Work Product. Without limiting the scope of the preceding sentences, all Work Product to the extent copyrightable under the United States Copyright Act of 1976 (the “Act”), will be “works made for hire” pursuant to the Act, and Client will thereby own all right, title and interest in all copyrightable Work Product. To the extent that the Work Product or any part thereof will be deemed by any court of competent jurisdiction or any governmental or regulatory agency not to be a “work made for hire” within the meaning of the Act, the provisions of this Agreement will still control and, for the consideration set forth herein, kpc creative hereby irrevocably and absolutely assigns, sets over and grants to Client, its successors and assigns, the Work Product and all of its rights therein, including, but not limited to, any copyrights and renewals and extensions thereof.  The rights contemplated by this assignment will include, without limitation except as otherwise provided in this Paragraph, the right to copy, distribute, modify, alter, adapt, revise and prepare derivative works from the Work Product. Unless so requested or otherwise permitted in writing by Client, kpc creative will not apply for any patents or copyrights, whether domestic or foreign, on any Work Product. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Client grants to kpc creative the right to use images of the final version of the project for marketing purposes as an example of kpc creative’s services.  The images may be used in presentations, on social media and on its website upon prior written approval from Client. ​
In the event Client desires to make alterations or modifications to the Work Product, upon completion, Client, or its successors and assigns, shall first seek the services of kpc creative which services shall be performed in a reasonable time and at a reasonable rate to be negotiated by the Parties.  Should kpc creative be unavailable or declines to perform such services, Client may hire a third party.  If Client desires to perform the revisions or modifications in-house, this right of first refusal shall not apply, but only if Client has not hired or engaged, directly or indirectly, a current or former employee of kpc creative to perform the services in-house if the employee has or had within the preceding 12 months participated in providing the Work Product under this Agreement.  

Notwithstanding the foregoing paragraph, Client acknowledges and agrees that the Work Product and services provided by kpc creative may contain certain non-project specific design details, features, concepts, programs, tools, and other software created through kpc creative’s consulting process (“kpc creative’ Intellectual Property”), which collectively may form portions of the design or Work Product, but which separately, are, and shall remain, the sole and exclusive property of kpc creative. Nothing herein shall be construed as a limitation on kpc creative’s rights to re-use the kpc creative’s Intellectual Property in other contexts. Notwithstanding the foregoing, kpc creative hereby grants to Client a non-exclusive, unrestricted, royalty-free, perpetual, and irrevocable license to use the kpc creative’ Intellectual Property in connection with the Work Product.

The receiving Party shall be responsible for any breach of the requirements of this Agreement by its Knowledge Representatives. The receiving Party shall not disclose, publish or otherwise reveal any of the Confidential Information received from the disclosing Party to any third party whatsoever except with the specific prior written authorization of the disclosing Party or as otherwise permitted by this Agreement.

At the disclosing Party’s option, any documents or other media developed by the receiving Party that contains Confidential Information may be destroyed by the receiving Party, provided the receiving Party certifies the destruction in writing to Company within ten (10) days after the request.
