An indemnity is a contractual obligation by one party to be responsible for certain loss, damage or liability incurred by the other party. Indemnities are often heavily negotiated, and as matter of course the service provider should try give as few indemnities as possible (the customer will always be able to try to sue at common law for losses suffered even if there is no indemnity). Try to limit any indemnity that the service provider does give by carving out liability arising from the customer’s own negligence or intentional misconduct.
There should be a clear mechanism for addressing how deliverables will be tested and accepted. Acceptance should be tied to the objective specifications, so that a failure to meet those specifications is the only basis for rejecting a deliverable. The customer should have a limited period in which to reject a deliverable, and should have to give detailed reasons for any rejection. If the customer does not reject a deliverable within the applicable period, the deliverable should be deemed accepted.
When preparing a contract, parties often underestimate the importance of correctly defining the parties. For a variety of reasons, the recitals (the introduction) to a contract should clearly reflect whether each party is an individual or a business entity and provide any other relevant identifying information. For example, individuals and business entities face different exposure to liability and must be approached differently in the event of a future claim or dispute. Companies should indicate their state of formation and entity type (whether it’s a corporation, limited liability company, partnership, or the like). Properly defining the parties also provides you with the information you need to perform basic research (due diligence) on each other.
A service agreement is an agreement made by two parties that documents the agreement between them with regards to the performance of the service(s) by one party (the service provider) to the other (the principal). Service agreements are very common and can be used in a wide variety of circumstances. They set out the fundamental terms of the relationship between the principal and service provider.
