Frequently Asked Questions

These terms get straight to the point and include clauses covering:

  • Scope: revisions; any work outside of the agreed number of revision rounds, or outside of scope comes at an additional cost
  • Payment: that payment will be due as you have set out on your invoice or your scope of work
  • Termination: That the client may ask you to stop doing work at any time, but that they will need to pay you for work you have done up to that point; an ability for you to stop work at any time
  • Liability: A cap on your financial exposure (known as limitation of liability) under the Agreement (limited to the amount of the fees paid by your client to you, to the extent to which this cap Is allowed by law)
  • Confidential Information: A right to have the confidential information of each party protected from misuse
  • Intellectual Property: the template builds in two options – either you licence your work or you assign it outright. You will need to select which option applies

Designed for sole traders.

These Terms are designed for use by freelancers who are operating a business as a sole trader. If you operate a company or have a team (e.g. you are a graphic design agency or business) then please check the Cherrypicka library for the Creative Agency Terms.

These Terms are also not suitable if you are a business looking to hire a creative freelancer. If you are a business, then the Cherrypicka Independent Contractor Agreement may be more suitable for your needs.
