Such compensation shall become due and payable to the Coach in the following time, place and manner:


$347 per 6 weeks via PayPal or any other secure online payment system. This can be paid on my website. Payment is due anytime before services are rendered to the Client.




Other than the compensation specified herein, neither Coach nor its Agents shall be entitled to any direct or indirect compensation for Services performed hereunder.





Coach is solely responsible for payment of expenses incurred pursuant to this Agreement unless such expenses are pre-approved by the Client in writing. The Client will only reimburse the Coach for expenses that were submitted and pre-approved by the Client in writing.

Each party hereto (“Such Party”) shall hold in trust for the other party hereto (“Such Other Party”), and shall not disclose to any non-party to the Agreement, any confidential information of such Other Party. This constitutes as a mutual non-disclosure agreement. Confidential information is information which relates to Such Other Party’s research, development, trade secrets or business affairs, but does not include information which is generally known or easily ascertainable by non-parties of ordinary skill in computer systems design and programming.


“Confidential Information” does not include information that: (a) was in the Coach’s possession prior to its being furnished by the Client; (b) is generally known to the public or in the Client’s industry; (c) is obtained by the Coach from a third party, without breach of any obligation to the Client; (d) is independently developed by the Coach without use of or reference to the Client’s confidential information; or (e) the Coach is required by statute, lawfully issued subpoena, or by court order to disclose; (f) is disclosed to the Coach and as a result of such disclosure the Coach reasonably believes there to be an imminent or likely risk of danger or harm to the Client or others; and (g) involves illegal activity. The Client also acknowledges his or her continuing obligation to raise any confidentiality questions or concerns with the Coach in a timely manner.


Coach hereby acknowledges that during the performance of this contract, the Coach may learn or receive confidential Client information and therefore Coach hereby confirms that all such information relating to the Client’s business will be kept confidential by the Coach, except to the extent that such information is required to be divulged to the Coach’s clerical or support staff or associates in order to enable Coach to perform Coach’s contract obligation.


Coach agrees not to disclose or use, except as required in Coach’s duties, at any time, any information disclosed to or acquired by Coach during the term of this contract.

Both parties shall take all reasonable precautions to prevent any other person with whom they may become associated from acquiring confidential information of each other at any time.


Both parties agree that all confidential information shall be deemed to be and shall be treated as the sole and exclusive property of each Party.


Upon termination of this contract, Coach shall deliver to Client all drawings, manuals, letters, notes, notebooks, reports, and all other materials (including all copies of such materials), relating to such confidential information which are in the possession or under the control of Coach.




Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed as granting to any party a license, express or implied, under any patent, copyright, trade secret, or other intellectual property right now or hereafter owned, obtained, or licensable by a Party to this Agreement.  Any intellectual property made in the performance of this Agreement shall be or remain the sole and exclusive property of that Party who created it, regardless of whether it is completed or reduced to practice thereafter.  In the event that employees of the Parties jointly produce copyrightable material, such material shall be jointly owned and copyrighted with rights reserved for both Parties and both Parties shall share in the cost, if such copyright is registered.

If during the performance of this Agreement inventions result, the following shall apply: each invention, discovery, or improvement (hereinafter referred to as “Invention”) conceived or first actually reduced to practice by one or more employees of one of the Parties, shall be the sole property of the Party whose employee or employees made the Invention.  Any Inventions conceived or first actually reduced to practice jointly by employees of both Parties hereto shall be jointly owned by both Parties.

Nothing in this Agreement is intended to transfer to the Client any rights in the Coach’s services or work performed, which shall remain the sole property of the Coach. Client is not authorized t use Coach’s intellectual property for Client’s business purposes. No license to sell or distribute Coach’s materials is granted or implied to the Client.




Both Parties acknowledge that disclosure of any Confidential Information by each other will give rise to irreparable injury to the owner of such information, inadequately compensable in damages. Accordingly, either Party may seek and obtain injunctive relief against the breach or threatened breach of the foregoing undertakings, in addition to any other legal remedies which may be available.




Coach is an independent contractor and neither Coach nor Coach’s staff is or shall be deemed to be employed by Client.
