The following list contains the main provisions that you should pay attention to when concluding a service contract, including: payment, amount of benefits, modification, termination, liability insurance, confidentiality, intellectual property and choice of law / dispute resolution. In the event of a dispute, this provision describes in detail how the dispute is settled and the applicable law. As a general rule, the parties keep it close to home (i.e. in the supplier`s state).
