General Terms of Service Part 2
II. WEB SERVICES DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT:
(Web Services Development applies only when CNP is providing Web Development Services)
12. Retainer Program
a. CNP does not offer flat bid contracts. All services are delivered based on time and materials. Once CNP has reviewed the User's project plan and design requirements the User can engage in CNP's retainer program. This program mandates the User make a weekly electronic payment. Unless the User has an approved credit application, this weekly payment is due in advance. CNP will invoice the User with actual hours incurred and a detail of work performed with monthly statements. The User can also view their account any time by logging in to the User billing section of CNP’s Customer portal www.cnpintegrations.com.
b. Unless otherwise agreed the User is required to prepay for services through the CNP Retainer Program. The User must complete and return a clear Statement of Work agreement (SOW), and the Terms of Service agreement.
c. In the event additional project support is required to meet User expectations or deadlines, the retainer program authorizes CNP to bill up to twice the designated weekly contracted hours. CNP will not exceed this threshold more than two consecutive weeks without User's approval and will not extend credit beyond this time period. Anytime throughout the project cycle, if the User's retainer program is discontinued due to nonpayment, CNP reserves the right to cancel all discounts. CNP will immediately invoice the User for all back discounts granted and will withhold all source content and license agreements until any outstanding invoices are paid in full.
d. All unpaid balances incurred during period of service by CNP are subject to collection and/or legal action. If any invoice is not paid within sixty (60) days after the date of the invoice, CNP may retain a collection agency to recover the unpaid dues. If CNP collects any payment due at law or through an attorney at law or under advice therefrom or through a collection agency, or if CNP prevails in any action to which the User and CNP are parties, User will pay all costs of collection, arbitration and litigation, including, without limitation, all court costs and CNP's attorneys' fees.
e. User authorizes CNP to use any method available to CNP to collect overdue balances. This includes charging a previously provided credit card or appointing a collection agency to recover the overdue balances.
f. For alternative payment options a credit application must be filled out. In these cases, the User will not be eligible for retainer program discounts.

c. CNP shall use reasonable efforts to provide, under the provisions of this agreement, the services that are mutually agreed upon and described in Statement of Work. User understands that the application is intended to work with certain User materials and that CNP's performance is dependent on User's delivery of such User materials. Accordingly, User will provide CNP with such User materials and other requested assistance in accordance with the timetable agreed upon by the parties. Any dates or time periods relevant to performance by CNP hereunder shall be appropriately and equitably extended to account for any delays due to User. Subject to the above, CNP shall use commercially reasonable efforts to adhere to the deadlines, benchmarks and milestones mutually agreed upon by the parties.
The User is engaging CNP as a service contractor for a specific project of developing and/or improving the User’s website portal or CMS/CRM system to be installed on CNP affiliate server or the User’s web space on another Internet Service Provider’s (ISP’s) computer. The User hereby authorizes CNP to access this account, and authorizes the ISP to provide CNP with “write permission” to the User’s web page directory, CGI-Bin directory, and any other directories or programs which need to be accessed for the specific project. The User also authorizes to publicize their completed web site to web search engines, as well as other web directories and indexes.

If the User finds the need for assistance after this period has expired, the User will be offered such assistance under a separate Maintenance Agreement.
b. Site Maintenance is not included in the cost of site development. Users may choose to maintain a Maintenance Agreement after the completion of the site. Such services may be billed at a fixed monthly rate or an hourly rate and charges will vary depending upon the anticipated needs of the User. If the User chooses a Maintenance Agreement, the terms of such will be listed separately as required.
c. If the User or an agent of the User other than CNP attempts to update the web site after completion of the site and damages the design or impairs the ability for the web pages to display or function properly, time to repair the web pages will be assessed at an hourly rate. The estimate of the repair will be conveyed to the User for acceptance before repair work begins.

User should also be aware that significant modifications could delay the completion date, and requests for significant modifications before the completion date may incur additional charges, at the discretion of CNP.
