ICSDS shall not render advice concerning whether the Client complies with federal, state or local laws or regulations. ICSDS shall not be responsible for Client’s implementation of audit findings. The Scope of Service does not include assistance in post-audit enforcement proceedings unless expressly incorporated.
If ICSDS is required to perform other services in connection with litigation or other disputes between Client and a third party, Client will compensate ICSDS at its then prevailing rates.
All requested (M)SDS that are subject to revision/ authoring, after submission of the compositional information and all relevant, necessary information by Client to ICSDS, are considered agreed project(s) and in the event Client terminates this Agreement prior to completion of the Services incomplete or partially, it shall pay ICSDS for those completed Services by termination date.
Customer agrees to pay all ICSDS invoices within fifteen days (NET-15) of the invoice date.
ICSDS provides services exclusively to Customer, who is solely responsible for payment. Customer agrees that payment of any invoice(s) shall not be predicated upon Customer receiving payment and/or funding from a third party not explicitly associated with this agreement.
ICSDS shall make a good-faith effort to resolve payment disputes without third-party intervention. Should these good-faith efforts fail to resolve said payment disputes, Customer further agrees that if any of its unpaid invoices are placed with a collection agency or attorney for collection, ICSDS shall be entitled to collect its collection agency fees, reasonable attorney’s fees, and/or court costs from Customer regardless of whether or not the matter is settled out-of-court or litigated.

ICSDS’S SOLE LIABILITY AND CLIENT’S SOLE REMEDY AND FOR ALL CLAIMS IN THE AGGREGATE SHALL BE LIMITED TO MONETARY DAMAGES IN AN AMOUNT NO MORE THAN THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF THE PAYMENTS MADE BY CLIENT FOR SERVICES PERFORMED HEREUNDER.

Client agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold ICSDS harmless against any and all claims, liabilities, losses, costs, or expenses including attorney’s fees, arising out of Services provided by ICSDS to Client, except as to such claims, liabilities, losses, costs, or expenses, including attorney’s fees, which are solely caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of ICSDS.
