If the Client desires to cancel Services of Contractor for any reason at any time, then Client shall provide at least (7) days Notice to Contractor in order to cancel this contract. Client may reschedule Services with at least (24) hours Notice. Providing Notice will not relieve Client of any currently outstanding payment obligations. Contractor will not be obligated to refund any portion of monies Client has previously paid to Contractor. Contractor has no obligation to attempt to re-book further Services to make up for Client’s cancellation or rescheduling.
- CONTRACTOR DESIRES TO CANCEL OR RESCHEDULE
In the event Contractor cannot or will not perform the obligations in any or all parts of this Agreement, it (or a responsible party) will immediately give Notice to Client, and at the Contractor’s discretion, either attempt to find a reasonable substitute to fulfill the terms of this Agreement or issue a refund or credit based on a reasonably accurate percentage of Services rendered. In the case of a refund where, at the discretion of the Contractor, no reasonable substitute is found, Contractor shall excuse Client of further performance obligations in this Agreement.
Although we intend to hold the event on the date stated in this agreement, circumstances beyond our control may arise that require a change to the event date. In such instances, we will provide notice to the other party and work together in good faith to agree on a new date for the event.
If it becomes impossible for the Contractor to render Services due to the fault of the Client or parties related to Client, such as failure to provide necessary elements of the Services or failure of one or more essential parties to the Services to complete tasks in a timely manner, it is within the Contractor’s sole discretion to allow for any additional time or dates to render Services. In such an event, any outstanding amount will immediately become due and payable to Contractor.
Parties shall provide effective notice (“Notice”) to each other, including any payments or invoices via the following method of delivery at the date and time which the Notice is sent:
