1.2 These Terms and the Quote (defined below) comprise the agreement in relation to Services to be provided by Enfogen to the Client (the “Agreement”). If there is any conflict between these Terms and the Quote, the provisions of the Quote shall take precedence.

2.2 Clause headings shall not affect the interpretation of the Agreement.
2.3 In the Agreement, unless the context otherwise requires: capitalised words and phrases shall have the meanings given in these Terms or the Quote; words importing one gender shall be treated as importing any gender; words importing individuals shall be treated as importing corporations and vice versa; words importing the singular shall be treated as importing the plural and vice versa; a reference to a statute or other law shall include references to any amendment, modification, extension, consolidation, replacement or re-enactment of; and references to “include” and “including” (or any similar term), are not to be construed as implying any limitation.
2.4 The Agreement shall apply to the exclusion of any other terms and conditions communicated to Enfogen (including any terms and conditions which may be printed on, or submitted with, the Client’s purchase order or similar document).
2.5 For the avoidance of doubt, prior to a Quote being:
(a) signed by both parties; or

the Quote shall not be deemed an offer from Enfogen, and may be withdrawn by Enfogen at any time.
2.6 Once the Quote has been signed by the Client and Enfogen, or has been otherwise approved by the Client and subsequently confirmed by Enfogen in writing, the Quote shall be deemed approved (“Approved”), and at this point the Agreement between the parties will come into force.
2.7 The provision of any Services not included in the Quote, or any changes to the Quote shall be subject to Enfogen and Client agreeing, in writing, to the scope of the additional or amended Services including changes to the Fees payable to Enfogen. Once such additional or amended Services and Fees (if applicable) are so agreed in writing, they shall automatically form part of the Agreement.
2.8 The Agreement shall commence on the date on which the Quote has been Approved or, if the Services commenced prior to that date, the Agreement shall be deemed to have commenced on the first day that the Services were provided. The Agreement shall continue thereafter in full force and effect for the period set out in the Quote, subject to earlier termination in accordance with clause 7 below (the “Term”).
3. PROVIDING THE SERVICES
3.1 Enfogen shall perform the Services throughout the Term and (where relevant) shall supply Deliverables to the Client in accordance with the Quote.
3.2 Enfogen shall apply such time, attention, and reasonable skill and care as may be necessary or appropriate for its proper performance of the Services and provision of any associated Deliverables.
3.3 Nothing in the Agreement shall prevent Enfogen from providing services which are the same as or similar to the Services to any other person.
3.4 In the Agreement the “Deliverables” shall mean the final versions of the Deliverables specified in the Quote (and, where applicable, as approved by the Client) and shall not include drafts, samples or abandoned concepts (being concepts which have not been developed and encapsulated in a final version which has been approved by the Client or published by Enfogen on its behalf).
3.5 Where the Quote provides a timetable or schedule for delivery of the Services or any Deliverables, Enfogen shall use reasonable endeavours to comply with that but time shall not be of the essence. Any Services for which time for performance is not specified shall be performed by Enfogen within a reasonable period of time.
3.6 Enfogen may subcontract or delegate any of its obligations under the Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt nothing shall prevent Enfogen from engaging third party suppliers in the normal course of its business in connection with its obligations under the Agreement.
3.7 The Client will promptly supply to Enfogen (at its own expense) any Client information, materials, equipment, tools and other items reasonably required by Enfogen or necessary to provide the Services and any Deliverables (including any Client materials or information specified in the Quote). The Client shall ensure that it has all necessary rights and licences in place to enable use by Enfogen of all such Client information, materials, equipment, tools and other items for the purposes of delivering the Services.
3.8 The Client will give Enfogen clear instructions and shall ensure that its other suppliers and agencies act in willing co-operation with Enfogen where necessary to enable Enfogen to perform the Services.
3.9 If Enfogen’s performance of any of its obligations under the Agreement are prevented or delayed by any act or omission by the Client, or failure by the Client to perform any relevant obligation (“Client Default”):
(a) without limiting or affecting any other right or remedy available to it, Enfogen shall have the right to suspend performance of the Services until the Client remedies the Client Default, and to rely on the Client Default to relieve it from the performance of any of its obligations in each case to the extent the Client Default prevents or delays Enfogen’s performance of any of its obligations;
(b) Enfogen shall not be liable for any costs or losses sustained or incurred by the Client arising directly or indirectly from Enfogen’s failure or delay to perform any of its obligations as set out in this clause 3.9; and
(c) the Client shall reimburse Enfogen on written demand for any costs or losses sustained or incurred by Enfogen arising directly or indirectly from the Client Default.
3.10 The Client may notify Enfogen in writing if it reasonably believes that the Services do not conform in all respects with the description in the Quote, and request that Enfogen re-perform the Services. Enfogen may consider such a request and agree, in its discretion, to re-perform the Services.
3.11 The Client acknowledges and agrees Enfogen is not obliged to agree to any such request, and shall, without prejudice to the Client’s right to issue a claim for breach of contract, not be required to refund to the Client any part of the Fees.
4. FEES AND EXPENSES
4.1 In consideration of the Services being supplied, the Client shall pay the Fees set out in the Quote, and as otherwise agreed by the parties in writing.
4.2 The Client shall pay all Fees in full in advance of Enfogen providing the Services, by the date set out in the Quote. Time shall be of the essence in relation to payment of Enfogen’s Fees.
4.3 Where relevant, the parties shall agree in writing an amount that Enfogen shall be entitled to incur on its behalf in purchasing or procuring digital advertising space for the Client, in connection with the Services (the “Ad Budget”). The parties may agree in writing to amend the Ad Budget and, for the avoidance of doubt, Enfogen will not increase the Ad Budget without the Client’s prior approval.
4.4 Unless agreed otherwise in the Quote, where an Ad Budget has been agreed, the Client will enter its payment details into the digital platforms (such as LinkedIn and Facebook) from which it is agreed Enfogen (or its authorised subcontractors) shall be authorised to purchase digital advertising on its behalf, and shall give Enfogen the relevant access credentials to enable it (or its authorised subcontractors) to access the Client’s accounts on those platforms and make such purchases.
4.5 The Client acknowledges that when purchasing digital advertising space for the Client in accordance with clause 4.4 above, Enfogen (or its authorised subcontractors) does so as agent of the Client and, provided that the purchases are in accordance with the Ad Budget, and otherwise comply with the Quote, the Client hereby authorises Enfogen (and its authorised subcontractors) to purchase such advertising space, to determine the content of the advertising to be displayed, and to enter into the standard advertising terms of business of the relevant platforms, on behalf of the Client.
4.6 Enfogen shall be entitled to invoice the Client all additional expenses properly incurred in the supply of the Services (including travel expenses, postage, couriers, subsistence and similar expenses) subject to approval by the Client for any expenses in excess of the limit specified in the Quote (such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed). Any and all expenses listed in the Quote are deemed pre-approved.
4.7 All Fees and other sums referred to in the Agreement are exclusive of VAT (or other applicable sales tax). The Client will pay to Enfogen such VAT (or other applicable sales tax, if any) as may be chargeable from time to time.
4.8 If the Client fails to pay any sum payable by it by the due date for payment under the Agreement (or if the Ad Budget is not made available), Enfogen shall have the right, at its option, to suspend performance of the Services until the Client pays all outstanding payments in full (or makes the Ad Budget available, as applicable).
4.9 All amounts due under the Agreement shall be paid in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).

5.1 In the Agreement “IP” means all intellectual property rights in whatever media whether or not registered including: copyright, database and compilation rights, patents, trade marks, service marks, trade names, goodwill, designs, all other industrial commercial or proprietary rights and any applications for the protection or registration of those rights and all renewals, revivals and extensions existing in any jurisdiction.
5.2 Subject to clauses 5.3 and 5.5 below, Enfogen hereby grants to the Client a worldwide royalty-free, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, licence in respect of Enfogen’s IP in any Deliverables to enable the Client to use the Deliverables in the manner specified in the Quote.
5.3 The licence granted by clause 5.2 above shall be subject to limitations on the use of any Deliverable (including limits as to the purpose(s), territory and period of use) set out in the Quote or otherwise explained by Enfogen in writing. If any such limitations are not clear from the Quote, the licence granted shall be deemed to be limited to such uses as should reasonably be contemplated by the parties given the nature of the Services.
5.4 Enfogen acknowledges that all IP in materials provided to it by or on behalf of the Client for incorporation in the Deliverables (including any Client materials and information specified in the Quote) shall remain the property of the Client or its licensors. The Client warrants that the use of such material, and the use of the Client’s name and logo, by Enfogen in accordance with the Agreement shall not infringe the rights of any third party and shall comply with all applicable law, regulation and relevant codes of practice in force from time to time.
5.5 If Enfogen intends to incorporate any third party IP into any Deliverables, it shall notify the Client of any restrictions on use of that IP. The Client shall at all times comply with such restrictions on use.
5.6 The Client agrees that Enfogen may identify the Client as a client of Enfogen (including through use of the Client’s name and logo) in its promotional materials (including the Enfogen website).
5.7 Save to the extent it is necessary to receive the Services and/or as otherwise permitted by the Agreement, the Client shall have no rights to use the name of Enfogen or any other trade marks or IP of Enfogen. If the Client wishes to make any public statement about Enfogen or the Services, the Client agrees to seek the prior written consent of Enfogen (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld).

(a) direct or indirect:
(i) loss of profits;
(ii) loss of contracts;
(iii) loss of business;
(iv) loss of goodwill;
(v) loss or corruption of data; or
(b) indirect or consequential loss or damage of whatever nature and howsoever caused, even if Enfogen has been advised of the possibility of such damages or losses (provided that nothing in this clause 6.3(b) shall be deemed to limit or exclude our liability for direct loss or damage).
6.4 All warranties, conditions, terms, undertakings and obligations implied by statute, common law, custom, trade usage, course of dealing or otherwise are hereby excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law, including any condition of satisfactory quality or fitness for a particular purpose.
6.5 Enfogen shall not be liable for any delay or failure in the performance of its obligations caused by: (a) a failure of or delay by the Client to perform its obligations under the Agreement; (b) any compliance by Enfogen with instructions issued by the Client in relation to which Enfogen has raised a concern; or (c) any failure of, or issues with purchasing digital advertising from, any third party platforms in accordance with the Agreement.

In the event of the transfer being considered a Restricted Transfer, Enfogen shall ensure that the Restricted Transfer meets the International Transfer Requirements.

10.14 The parties acknowledge and agree that to the extent either party considers the use of the relevant lawful transfer mechanism relied on in respect of a Restricted Transfer is no longer an appropriate lawful transfer mechanism to legitimise the relevant Restricted Transfer pursuant to the International Transfer Requirements, the Restricted Transfer shall cease and the parties shall work together to agree and put in place an alternative lawful transfer mechanism or such other supplementary measures to enable the Restricted Transfer to the relevant third party to continue.
10.15 Enfogen and its affiliates shall have no liability under the Agreement for any failure to provide the relevant Services in accordance with the Agreement as a result of the suspension of such Restricted Transfer. Notwithstanding the previous sentence, if such a Restricted Transfer is suspended, the parties shall take all reasonable steps to ensure that the Services can continue to be provided in all material respects in accordance with the Agreement. Further, to the extent the parties agree that certain supplementary measures are required to legitimise the relevant Restricted Transfer, the parties shall, acting reasonably and in good faith, allocate the costs between the parties accordingly.
10.16 Enfogen’s liability under the Agreement for the acts or omissions of any sub-processors appointed in connection with the Agreement shall be limited to an amount equal to any Losses it is able to recover from such sub-processors.

14.3 Where either party has incurred any liability to the other, whether under the Agreement or otherwise, the party incurring such liability shall not be entitled to set off the amount of such liability against any sum or sums that would otherwise be due to it under the Agreement.

Nothing in this clause shall limit the right of Enfogen to take proceedings against the Client in any other court of competent jurisdiction, nor shall the taking of proceedings in any one or more jurisdictions preclude the taking of proceedings in any other jurisdictions, whether concurrently or not, to the extent permitted by the law of such other jurisdiction.
