This page serves as a contract between the buyer (the "Buyer") and XHTMLFactory ("Service Provider"), which is collectively referred to as the "parties".
1. Key Terms

a. Start date: The Service Provider shall commence the provision of the Services on the first business day from date of purchase.
b. Completion date: The Service Provider shall complete the Services by the date nominated by the Buyer at time of purchase.
c. Delays: While we aim to deliver all our projects on time, unforseen circumstances can delay delivery times.

You are not entitle to make any further claims against XHTMLFactory beyond the original cost of the project.
1.3 Format of Delivery

n. Neither Party shall assign or transfer all or any part of its rights under this Agreement without the consent of the other Party.

q. Neither Party shall be liable for failure to perform or delay in performing any obligation under this Agreement if the failure or delay is caused by any circumstances beyond its reasonable control, including but not limited to acts of god, war, civil commotion or industrial dispute.
