Contractual Terms and Conditions

Professional time of our specialists and will be billed as either a fixed fee (if the required result can be precisely defined) or at an hourly rate quoted upon agreement of the scope of the effort.

In addition, the client will reimburse all expenses, plus a 20% handling charge added to these expenses. These expenses will be estimated upon agreement of the projects scope; if the actual expenses exceed the agreed estimate, the client will reimburse such excess expenses, but will not be charged any further handling charge on the additional amount.

Expenses include all out of pocket costs such as travel, telephone, printing and copying, postage, user fees for online information retrieval, publications, independent contractor assistance, and similar items. Other costs such as word processing, and mileage will be treated as expenses at rates approximating local commercial charges. Detailed expense records are maintained in our office and may be inspected if desired.

If travel costs are incurred on a trip that serves two or more clients, common travel costs will be allocated to each client in proportion to costs that would have been incurred for travel dedicated solely to each client alone.

Bills and invoices will be submitted twice a month, normally on the first and fifteenth. Bills are due and payable when submitted. A late payment charge of 1-1/2% per month (18% annually) may be applied to amounts outstanding ten (10) days after the date of the statement.

The client always has the right to terminate the assignment upon written notice. In such a case the client has no liability for charges beyond those incurred on their behalf through the date when notice of termination is received by us.

Because we cannot serve a client under terms or conditions that might impair our objectivity, independence, or integrity, GatewayProductDevelopmentGroup.com reserves the right to withdraw from the assignment if conditions develop to interfere with the successful completion of the assignment (except where our efforts are integral with the clients efforts.)

It is understood that GatewayProductDevelopmentGroup.com and its network of contractors, if any, shall be in the relation of independent contractors with the client, and nothing herein shall be construed as designating us as employees or agents of the client for any purpose.

GatewayProductDevelopmentGroup.com will guard as confidential all information concerning the affairs of the client that is gathered during the course of the assignment. We agree to hold such information in strict confidence, and not to disclose it to others for a period of five (5) years or until such information is otherwise released by the client.

GatewayProductDevelopmentGroup.com will not serve two (2) or more competing clients in areas of vital interest without first informing each client.

The rights to any idea or inventions that result from our work will be assigned to the client without any further charge for professional time. The client is responsible for all legal fees and similar expenses necessary to obtain patents that the client may desire to register.

We cannot begin Researching, Developing, Investigating and Intelligence Gathering solving your specific Idea or Invention until we first gain a solid basic understanding of it.  In our initial contact we try to learn:

* Specific needs and background 
  * Origins of the idea or invention; 
  * Scope of the project; 
  * Key issues to be examined

At this time we try to determine:

* A broad definition of the assignment and expected result; 
  * The information gathering methodology;  
* Logical phases (if practical)  
* Approximate time and cost

At this point there is no obligation on either side. Once gathered, the above information helps the client decide whether we are the best people to handle the assignment, and helps us determine if we can do the job with our specialists and network of associates and whether we can do it properly in the time available.

When appropriate, the details and results of this discussion are confirmed in a written proposal outlining:

  * Our understanding of the assignment; 
  * Suggested approaches; 
  * Type and extent of client involvement; 
  * Organization of the work; 
  * Expected results; 
  * Estimated time and cost.

The client has no obligation until our proposal is accepted.

During each assignment, periodic updates are given. These are augmented by at least one interim review to summarize our findings to date and discuss any modifications in the direction for the balance of the project. Upon completion of our work, we report our findings and recommendations to client management, normally in the form of a briefing presentation. While structured, this presentation encourages the questioning and discussion of our findings. Our goal is to provide clients with recommendations which are practical for them to implement, with or without our help. The presentation is then documented with a written report.

Fees are based on the time needed plus expenses actually incurred in carrying out the assignment. More detail may be found on the “Contractual Terms and Conditions” area on our About Us page.
