The scope of the service clause would be one of the most important clauses for a customer. The client and service provider identify their contract requirements under the service clause. As a consumer, you need to make sure that the service domain clause fully covers the desired task. If it is too big, the service provider will do more than you want. If it is too tight, the service provider could do less. To ensure that the order is exactly what you expect, it is extremely important to check in detail the nature of the service clause. This provision describes who owns the intellectual property (IP) created from the service. As a general rule, the parties retain all the IP addresses they contribute. For example, the service provider keeps the IP address during its process and the customer keeps his IP address, which he uses to complete the service (i.e. the company logo used to make T-shirts).

In addition, the customer generally obtains an exclusive revocable license for the use/sale of the IP for the duration of the relationship. It is important to ensure that your company does not transfer an IP address to the service provider by mistake. A compensation clause generally requires the service provider to compensate the customer (i.e. compensation) when the client is prosecuted for the service provider`s misconduct. While a compensation clause can help the client pass the risk on to the service provider, it only works in practice if the service provider is able to meet its compensation obligations. In other words, the service provider must have the money to compensate the customer. That`s where insurance comes in. By requiring the provider to carry certain insurance policies with certain minimum limits, the customer can ensure that he can seek redress from the service provider if the customer is sued because of an error by the service provider.

Implementation clauses on how a party must fulfill its part of the agreement. Examples of enforcement clauses are that when you look at the issue of insurance, insurance premiums are often lower than the liberal professions think. If the professions insist that insurance requirements (particularly basic insurance, such as general liability) be waived, they do tell the client that they cannot meet their compensation obligations if necessary. Companies should think twice before cooperating with service providers who are probably unable to meet their compensation obligations. In the event of a dispute, this provision specifies how the dispute is resolved and what right applies. As a general rule, parties keep it close to home (i.e. in service provider status). This creates an advantage for transactions with local service providers! The most common types of dispute resolution include: arbitration, mediation and the use of ordinary courts.
