Hello! My name is ***** ***** I'll be the Expert assisting you today. The cost for this service will be $18 if you are satisfied with the results. I would be happy to review the contract if you can upload it here.
I have received the contract. What sections do you have questions about?
Regarding Section 4: You are selling extracts and oils, correct? It sounds like section 4 is just boiler plate that doesn't' apply to your specific situation. 'Work made for hire' is typically any product you make that is related to your job duties. For example, if you created advertisements for these extracts and distributed them, that would be considered property of your employer. I can't really think of any other examples, but if you are designing or producing anything related to selling these products, it would likely qualify as work made for hire.
Regarding Section 7: This is a pretty standard confidentiality clause. What specific questions do you have?
Regarding Section 8: Both parties are agreeing not to sue each other for any actions related to the agreement. For example, lets say you sell these products, someone gets sick from using them, and you lose revenue from other sources (due to negative reviews, for example). Because of this clause, you could not sue the farm for loss of revenue.
Regarding Section 9: This is just standard boilerplate stating that there are no other agreements or promises regarding the quality of the products being sold or the terms of the contract.
All of these sections are pretty standard, so I don't think you have anything to worry about. Do you have any other questions?
Yes, it looks pretty typical and you should be comfortable signing it. I hope I’ve provided the information you were seeking. If you are happy with my service, your 3, 4, or 5 star rating at this time is most welcome. If you need more help, please let me know so I can continue to assist you.
You are very welcome! Have a great day!
