If the client agrees to proceed with only part of these services and/or products SMS reserves the right to revise quotations. All pricing is within +/- 10%.

Any taxes, shipping and handling, delivery and/or rush charges will be additional.

We reserve the right to revise quotations based upon client-directed changes, additions and/or deletions. Any client-directed changes to the project specifications as designated herein may also result in increased creative and production charges, and/or programming, account management or administration charges. Design and copy costs may be re-evaluated upon receipt of final client directives. Design costs include one major revision, and two minor revisions during the development phase. Comps will only be submitted upon agreement that we are awarded the complete project. Comps that are submitted for projects that we are not awarded, will be billed for labor and concept at the appropriate rate, and will remain the exclusive property of SMS.

Normal credit terms are net ten days. Past due accounts are subject to a late payment finance charge of 1.5% per month on the total past due amount. The client will pay for any charges incurred in the collection of outstanding amounts, including court costs and attorney fees.

In the event of any dispute, all parties agree that they will voluntarily submit to binding arbitration in the State of California by the American Arbitration Association, or any other mutually agreed upon arbitration board, upon which judgment may be obtained and enforced under the laws of any state in the United States.
