Delays. In the case of any unreasonable or persistent delays, the Agency reserves the right to pause the project and invoice for services rendered through the pause date based on the Agency’s hourly rate (not to exceed the total amount of the Fee). The Agency will reschedule the project when the Client is ready to recommence, for a mutually convenient time; however, there may be additional fees or expenses required. A change order or new Agreement will be prepared.
In the event of unforeseen circumstances, Lone Fir Creative may grant a grace period of 10 business days past the original contract end date.

A change order or new work order will be prepared for the Client to sign before the project commences once again. In the case that the project does not relaunch, the Agency will retain all fees paid unless otherwise specified in the proposal. Lastly, it is also important to note, in the event that the previously partnered Agency POC does not have the capacity, the Client may be partnered with a new Agency POC who would then be your main point of contact going forward.
