4) Our Company reserves the right to cancel the project at any time if Company determines the freelancer is unwilling or unable to complete any task or item in any of the milestones and/or if the Freelancer fails to deliver the deliverable by the agreed upon delivery date for that item and/or milestone. If the project is canceled by Company or by Freelancer at any time and for any reason, payments for any milestones that are incomplete at the time of cancelling will be forfeited. There will be no partial payments for milestones.

5) Possibility of on-going contract work will be discussed as the initial project is nearing successful completion.

**If you do not agree to any of the terms and/or if you are unable to provide a flat rate price and clear timeframe in your proposal then do not submit a proposal/bid as it will not be considered. **

**Only proposals that show you have clearly read through these project specs will be considered. We will not consider generic copy/paste proposals.**
