If there is any conflict between these Terms and Company's Proposal, then the Proposal shall prevail. For the purposes of the Terms, the Company includes its partners, employees, subcontractors, advisers, and all its related entities. 

2. Information

The quality of the Company's services will depend on full and timely instructions from the Client. The Company will rely on the accuracy and completeness of the information the Client provides them.

The Company shall be entitled to rely upon the accuracy of all information provided by the Client, or by others on their behalf, without independently verifying it. 

The Client shall retain responsibility for the use of, or reliance on, advice or recommendations supplied by us in the delivery of the services. 

The Client undertakes that, if anything occurs after the information is provided by the Client, to render such information untrue, unfair, or misleading, the Client will promptly notify the company and, if required by the Company, take all necessary steps to correct any announcement, communication or document issued which contains, refers to or is based upon, such information. 

Acknowledge that information made available by the Client, or by others on their behalf, or which is otherwise known by, partners or staff of the Company who are not engaged in the provision of the Services shall not be deemed to have been made available to the individuals within the Company who are engaged in the provision of the Services.

3. Delays

The Client will not hold the Company responsible for any failure or delay in connection with their engagement caused by any outside Company's control. This could include another person's actions or omissions. The Company's fees may reflect any additional cost that the Company incurs from such a delay. If the delay is substantial, the Client may terminate the Company's appointment.

4. Resources

6. Estimates

The Company may provide the Client with an estimate of likely fees and costs. The final fees and costs may differ from the estimate.

The processes, know-how, ideas, concepts, and techniques used and developed by the Company in the course of providing services to the Client are confidential to the Company. The Company retains sole and exclusive rights to them. 

The Company will also retain all copyright and other intellectual property rights in:
